Alda Telles's curator insight, January 28, 2014 6:05 AM

Much of today’s “customer journey” occurs in the digital realm—a place beyond the direct control of companies, but highly sensitive to efforts to provoke and amplify social engagement. As a result, marketers need to adopt digital marketing models to better engage customers before, during, and after the purchase.

How StoryTelling Helps Your Fans To Sync-Up With The Ideas You Want Them To Use

How StoryTelling Helps Your Fans To Sync-Up With The Ideas You Want Them To Use | Marketing and Creative Services | Scoop.it

"A good story can make or break a presentation, article, or conversation. But why is that?" 


Via Robin Good

Robin Good's curator insight, February 16, 2014 1:31 PM



Here is why storytelling is so effective and uniquely powerful.  


Bufferapp co-founder Leo Widrich has written, back in 2012, a very interesting and informative article on the topic. Here a few passages from it: 


"When we tell stories to others that have really helped us shape our thinking and way of life, we can have the same effect on them too.

The brains of the person telling a story and listening to it can synchronize, says Uri Hasson from Princeton:


"When the woman spoke English, the volunteers understood her story, and their brains synchronized. When she had activity in her insula, an emotional brain region, the listeners did too. When her frontal cortex lit up, so did theirs. 


By simply telling a story, the woman could plant ideas, thoughts and emotions into the listeners' brains."


A story, if broken down into the simplest form, is a connection of cause and effect. And that is exactly how we think. We think in narratives all day long, no matter if it is about buying groceries, whether we think about work or our spouse at home. We make up (short) stories in our heads for every action and conversation."



Truthful. Inspiring. Very useful. 8/10

Here's what we've learned from a 600-person survey -- and what we want to share with you about using social media at work.
Wendy Flanagan's insight:
Privacy issues, personal preferences, extended work-day for the same pay, content decisions - there are many questions and concerns about employees being the voice of the company through their own social media channels. And, do they get fired or a poor review if they misrepresent the company? Do they have freedom of speech?

60 Fantastic Free Responsive WordPress Business Themes

60 Fantastic Free Responsive WordPress Business Themes | Marketing and Creative Services | Scoop.it
Looking for a free business theme? These 60 responsive options will give you some fantastic choices.
Wendy Flanagan's insight:

Each Wordpress theme, while "free" has its own idiosyncracies that you have to work through in configuration. As you can imagine, it can take some time to download, install, configure and test what would appear (at first blush) to be a "perfect" theme for your needs. Most demo sites don't even match the download theme package, as they have been modified to look their best. 

 

Once you've taken the time to work-around the idiosyncracies, the notion of simply "replacing the theme" becomes obsolete. More customization is required to then allow the next theme to be just what you wanted.

 

As well, not every popular plugin works with any given theme. If you visit the forums, you'll see lengthy discussions from people trying to find work-arounds.

 

Finally, there's responsive... and then almost responsive. When I say "almost", I mean that the considerations for responsive apply to most page elements, but not all. (i.e.: navigation wraps).

 

Still, I'm excited to find this extensive list to download and try - because I'm always looking for the "perfect" theme.
