Content Curation your secret weapon - Drive Traffic & Find New Customers

Content Curation your secret weapon - Drive Traffic & Find New Customers | MarketingHits | Scoop.it
Using Content Curation To Find New Customers.


Being an Internet marketer for many years I’ve seen the landscape change many times but one thing has stayed the same “Content is King”, when it comes to driving traffic to a website.


As a business owner we all want to get new customers to our websites. Many have tried blogging to drive traffic to their website and due to a shortage of hours in a day they end up dropping the blog or hiring ghost writers to develop content for the site. We now have a new player on the net and it comes in the form of Content Curation. No it will not completely eliminate business owners creating content for their website but adds a whole new area of content development for a website.


Over the past two years I’ve tested different content curation sites and tools and have found Scoop.it to be the leader in both innovation and traffic building potential.


Below are examples on how Scoop.it can drive traffic and help to show the world, yes the world that your business knows your market.


In this article are 3 areas that when done correctly can drive new traffic to your business or brand?.

The Power of Visual Content

The Power of Visual Content | MarketingHits | Scoop.it

If you are feeling like you are drowning in content, it’s because you are! The world’s information is currently doubling every two years, giving us access to more data, facts and stories than ever before. And, thanks to our smartphones, tablets and the Internet, we are constantly receiving, analyzing, sharing and creating even more information. But, as content marketers, how do we ensure that our content can break through this sea of information? We can by embracing visual content.


Why create visual content? Visuals aid in decision-making and are more persuasive and make a better, longer overall impression than simple text. Consider these facts:

  • 90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual. Visuals are processed 60,000X faster in the brain than text.
  • 60% of consumers are more likely to click on a business whose images appear in search results
  • 67% of consumers consider clear, detailed images to carry more weight than product information or customer ratings

Twitter Can Be Used To Predict Crime [STUDY]

Twitter Can Be Used To Predict Crime [STUDY] | MarketingHits | Scoop.it

Anything you tweet can and will be used against you in a court of law. At least, that’s what a new study proposes.


As Business Insider reports, researchers from the University of Virginia discovered that tweets can be used to predict certain types of crimes.


By analysing geo-located tweets, these researchers found that tweet were useful in predicting between 19 to 25 different types of crimes, including stalking, theft and assault.


Lead researcher, Matthew Gerber, says that people aren’t necessarily tweeting about crimes directly. Instead, they’re tweeting about environmental factors that could lead to a crime – such as a large group of people tweeting about getting drunk, a situation that could lead to crime.


By exploring geo-tagged tweets from Chicago neighborhoods and comparing these to the city’s crime database, the researchers were able to predict crime in the future. As the study explains:

This Is What Facebook Sees When It Scans Your Face

This Is What Facebook Sees When It Scans Your Face | MarketingHits | Scoop.it
One artist turned Facebook's facial recognition code into a series of "Eternal Portraits."


DeepFace, Facebook’s facial recognition software, is now 97.35% accurate and “closely approaching human-level performance,” according to a new paperpublished by the social network’s AI research team. On the surface that level of reliability feels impressive, but for all its accuracy, what exactly does Facebook see when it looks at you?


Using Facebook’s proprietary data (in 2013 there was a short time when users could download their facial recognition template — users can no longer download this data), Brian House, a media artist and teacher at the Rhode Island School of Design, and student Jason Rabie took their own raw data as well as their friends’ and isolated the unique facial recognition templates for a series they call “Eternal Portraits.” Here’s how House describes the project:

Messaging Is A Winner-Take-Some Market

Messaging Is A Winner-Take-Some Market | MarketingHits | Scoop.it

We use a different persona on each app

In the real world we behave one way in a meeting at the office and a different way at a bar with old friends. Each of our friend groups has different interests and inside jokes, and so we approach them with tailored messages. The content we produce on each app is different. Even our personas and the content we produce in different groups within the same app is sometimes different.

But Facebook has trained us to collapse our personality into one monolithic identity. That’s only 10 percent of the real you. The majority of the real you doesn’t have an outlet. That is where messengers (and other services) come into play. That is where the content you publish in each app reflects your persona for that app – the consummate professional on iMessage with co-workers and the jokester with college friends on Facebook Messenger.

We use multiple messengers because they reflect our diverse social circles, our various personas, and the variety of content we publish.
