페이스북이나 트위터에서 좀 더 많은 관심과 좋아요를 받을 수 있는 시간대를 정보그래픽으로 간단하게 설명해 놓았다. 정말 중요한 정보나 광고를 올릴때 효과적으로 쓰일 수 있겠다.

Interesting article about the best time to post in Facebook and Twitter based on the amount of traffic it gets. It really is important to know that those times will be better to post for more attention and likes but as my professor said, you have to remind yourself that you will compete the most during the peak time.

8 Attributes of Content That Inspire Action | SEOmoz

8 Attributes of Content That Inspire Action | SEOmoz | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

I have nothing to add.  Great summary here. 
KM 

---

Excerpted from article:

"As a marketer, you already know getting your visitors to perform an action is crucial to the success of any marketing initiative. Content marketing is no different. Tracking measurable actions (like newsletter subscribers, social shares, leads, clicks, and sales) tied to your content is crucial to gauging its efficacy.

 

Every piece of content you publish should be crafted with this in the forefront of your mind. If you’re not doing this, you’re wasting your time.

 

Here are the elements of impactful content:

 

1. Provocative

Easily confused with controversy, being provocative is about more than raising eyebrows. Provocative content ignites emotion by pushing boundaries and challenges the status quo.

 

2. Visionary

Are you causing a “Eureka moment” for the reader?

Visionary content puts into words a frustration, realization, or need that the reader has, but may not have been fully aware of or seen properly verbalized previously.

 

3. Differentiated

Differentiated content presents a completely original idea or discusses a tired topic in a new fashion or format. This is uncommon to most content and one of the toughest attributes to master.

 

4. Relevant

Does your content appeal to your target audience?

Content should be related to your brand without being an overt sales pitch. If you do go off topic, you’re doing so from the perspective of your vertical.

 

5. Timely

Are you one of the first to cover hot topics?

Even if you aren’t trying to break news, you should be incorporating current trends and news into your content. Leverage news items your audience is naturally talking about or seeking more information about.

 

6. Demonstrates Mastery

Are you positioning your brand as a thought leader?

Masterful content offers an unparalleled depth of insight. It expands on complex ideas and shows a comprehensive analysis on the topic unlikely to be found from other sources.

 

7. Can Be Delivered On

Do you provide the solution?

Content should intrigue the reader about your brand, and make them feel they have an unmet need only your brand can fill.

 

8. Narrative

Are you telling a story with a clear beginning, middle, and end?

Content with a strong narrative takes the reader on an exciting journey full of surprises and leads to a call-to-action of value for the brand. It’s cohesive, easy to understand, and inspires action related to the story...."

 

Each element is enriched with some examples. In addition at the end of post, the author has included an evaluation rubric for you to consistently measure if your content incorporates these attributes.

There is a new King. It is King Trust. Not King Content!

There is a new King. It is King Trust. Not King Content! | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

We have been following the mantra of "Content Is King".  With the overflow of people following this great advice, we now must focus on building trust through great content.

Ken Morrison's insight:

I really like this article about the "why" and the "how-to" think differently about content creation.  I really like that the author includes quotes from people in the industry to back up her thoughts.1. Don't build on rented land -Social media is great....if you have a plan to get them to your home page.2. Help, not hype, your customer

Don't be yelling '"Buy this! Buy this!"  Be truly helpful

 

3. Write what people want to read, not what you want to write

Take the focus off of yourself if you want to win their trust!
4. Reference industry influencers
Help people know that you are always learning from the top minds in your industry.  Also, it will help your search engine juice!

 

5. Create content for all types of readers

 Help your customers feel at home in their community.  Think of ways to add value to their lives outside of your store.  The author gives an example of a real estate broker who made a blog about great pizza places.

 

6. There is more to content than links

Links are very important.  But don't let it blind you!  

 

7. Don't forget the "marketing" in content marketing

Don't be afraid to promote your content!  If it is important enough to create, it is important enough to promote! "If you don't promote it, Nobody will ever read it!" 

 

If you are shy, the author suggests writing something like this:

"Hey there folks, I just wrote up a quick post about some cool local resources I've been working on recently. If you have a moment, take a quick peek and let me know what you think. I'm just getting started with this whole content marketing thing, so any feedback you can give me will be greatly appreciated. Here's the link, thanks!"

 

 

8. It's all about relationships

Be an active team player.  Promote other writers' content.  This is important.  Engage!

 

9. Think like a publisher
Go to a book store and look at books and magazines.  Make your content look and feel like great traditional publishing.

 

Your job is to engage, entertain and inform!  Don't forget that

 

10. Use other sites to find out what kind of content people want

Stop thinking that you have nothing to say and nothing to add. It is not true and you know that.  "Inspiration comes from adding upon what someone has done before."
----Always be aware of what is popular in your industry and write about those things.

John Jantsch Does It Again! Free eBook "The Total Online Presence Blueprint"

John Jantsch Does It Again! Free eBook "The Total Online Presence Blueprint" | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

I present a 12-month plan of attack or blueprint for working on your presence in the coming year. I’ve long taught this “live by the calendar” approach as I think it helps business owners, who wear many hats, get above the overwhelm by taking it topic by topic and manageable bit by bit in an attempt to forge something that looks like continuous progress. 

Ken Morrison's insight:

My worst workout of the year so far was the time when I was listening to John Hantsch's podcast on this topic.  I was continually stopping to type out notes.  I am excited to dig into this free digital book.

 

John Jantsch is one of my favorite content creators and authors.  He shares so much practical content with achievable action sets. I fully understand why American Express promotes him as a great resource for helping small and medium size businesses.  Huge businesses love him also, but his target audience is busy small business owners.
