Stage A Thunderstorm In Your Living Room With This Interactive Cloud Lamp

Stage A Thunderstorm In Your Living Room With This Interactive Cloud Lamp | Meetings, Tourism and  Technology | Scoop.it

The interactive Cloud Lamp, a bolt of genius, will storm the scene at home to thunderous effect.

Designer Richard Clarkson’s Cloud Lamp gives you your very own cumulonimbus cloud at home with a heap of down fluff impregnated with a battery of electrical wires. Not only does it approximate the gust-like shape that hovers in stormy skies, but it also produces a phantasmagoric play of lights--call it lightning design.

You’ve built your LinkedIn profile and are ready to begin networking and attracting the attention of influencers, decision makers and employers. Great start!

 

Keep in mind though, that your profile is one of over 200 million on the site, many of who have the same goals. So how do you make your LinkedIn profile stand out among the rest?

 

You make your profile as perfect as possible, of course. And that is now easier to accomplish than ever before, thanks to this thorough infographic by Linkedin expert Neal Schaffer at Maximize Social Business.

 

What do we like best about this infographic? Neal includes 17 points to make your Linkedin profile go from just “complete” to “stand up and get noticed!”

How to Decide Where to Invest in Content Marketing - Brandwatch

How to Decide Where to Invest in Content Marketing - Brandwatch | Meetings, Tourism and  Technology | Scoop.it

I still often hear “we need a social media strategy” when training or at conferences. This is positive since it suggests a more planned, holistic approach to social media than the “we need a Facebook page” which we heard two or three years ago.

 

I do wonder, though, what these social media strategies contain; sometimes it seems that all they will cover is general goals, evaluation, policy and how to make use of different potential social networks.

If this is the case, I think it’s important that a social media strategy is linked to, or contains, a content marketing plan which reviews the options for using different types of content to support campaign objectives.

 

Of course not all content will get the cut-through and sharing, needed – you need a way to see whether it will. “Creating content” isn’t enough – according to Michael Stelzner, it needs to be Nuclear content, or for Lee Odden, Rock Star content, and for Joe Pulizzi,Epic content.

 

We developed the Content Marketing Matrix as a way for businesses to review potential content types for different target personas. In workshops the matrix seems well received as a useful tool, but it is so good at identifying new approaches that there is then the challenge of deciding on the best investments!
