Infographics Are More Viral Then Presentations

Infographics Are More Viral Then Presentations | Mentalist | Scoop.it

The data’s in: Infographics have more virality than presentations and documents!

 

When we launched our new infographics player in July, it was because we had little  doubt the web was becoming more and more  visual — and  infographics were seemingly becoming the future of data-sharing. Being the data-driven organization that we are, we were interested in testing the popularity of this new content type.

The Future of SEO: Topics Instead of Keywords

The Future of SEO: Topics Instead of Keywords | Mentalist | Scoop.it

Here we are, eight months into 2014, and we’re already talking about the future of SEO. It seems like just yesterday we were discussing how to blast off your SEO content and rankings for the future—2014. We saw noteworthy changes in optimization, including Google’s unmistakable push for content over tactical rank increasing strategies. As we march forward, the future of SEO comes into clearer focus: and the future is topics instead of keywords.

Mai Lam's curator insight, May 4, 3:24 AM

This article identifies the 6 sharers of social media and how each of them play an important role to promote a business. The 6 social media sharers include the altruist (reliable, helpful towards friends and followers in sharing information via email or Facebook), the careerist (usually independent and uses sites such as LinkedIn to build professional relationships), the connector ( relaxed and creative, uses online offers and discounts and also shares them with friends and followers), the hipster (popular and tech-savvy, relies on quick methods to communicate such as Twitter and Skype), the boomerang (uses social media networks to gain reactions and validation) and lastly the selective - careful individual who prefers sending private emails and messages to making public shares. This is useful to IMC as it can aid in choosing who (what type of sharers) to promote its products in the social media world in hopes of gaining profits and brand awareness/equity.

I found many of the statistics in this article to be very intriguing.  For starters, I did not realize that Twitter's follower base has now grown to over half that of Facebook's.  Furthermore, I had no idea that users spend close to the same amount of time on each site, because to me, Twitter is more of a place to simply post things, while Facebook is more of a place to browse.  Next, I was not surprised to hear that about 80% of Pinterest users are women, however, I was surprised when it stated that about half of the total number of users have children!  Last but not least, I personally have not heard much chatter about Google+, so it was surprising to find out that its follower count increases by about 33% each year!  All in all, it was a very interesting article to read through!

5 Tips To Rock Your Content Strategy With LinkedIn Showcase Pages

5 Tips To Rock Your Content Strategy With LinkedIn Showcase Pages | Mentalist | Scoop.it
This past November, LinkedIn introduced Showcase Pages, a new feature designed to help businesses  better market their brand(s),  products, services,  verticals, and more.

 

This is meant to ensure that users can access content that’s most relevant to their needs and  interests. For  example, the average consumer might not be interested in the various positions you’re currently recruiting. However, they may be very interested in learning more about a new product or service you’re offering, or about something related to customer support. Showcase Pages are basically specific profile  pages for any aspect of your business that you’d like to show off.


This new feature has been welcomed with open arms by business owners, marketers, recruiters, PR professionals and others.  Many major organizations already create multiple Twitter accounts and Facebook profiles for various parts of their business, so it makes sense for LinkedIn to offer  functionality that meets this need.


If you’re ready to start using Showcase Pages to help with your social media and content marketing efforts, follow these five tips.
