Visual Storytelling: The Big Trend for SXSW 2016 | Cool Infographics

Visual Storytelling: The Big Trend for SXSW 2016 | Cool Infographics | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

It’s only August, but voting is already underway for the March 2016 South By Southwest (SxSW) Interactive conference. Long thought of as the breeding ground for new ideas and creative technologies, we can gleam industry insights from the SXSW Interactive Festival. This year, I decided not to wait until the conference to delve into the veritable buffet of groundbreaking panels vying for festival space. This year’s PanelPicker interface received more than 4,000 proposals, which is an all-time record!

While a quick search of infographics yields only 11 results, a mere TWO actually have the word “Infographics” in the title. The industry discourse has shifted away from “how-to” models to “how to do it right.” Infographics have become a key format of the larger conversation: Visual Storytelling.

A quick search for “Visual Storytelling” yields over 200 talks in PanelPicker, along with hundreds more for “data visualization” and “visual content”.  Infographics are now used as one of many effective tools in the Marketer’s toolbox, and an accepted part of the larger conversation happening in the content marketing industry.

Visual storytelling is vital to content marketing success. The following types of visual content are at the forefront of the proposals for next year’s SXSW Interactive Festival.

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Visual storytelling in every form is more than a trend. It's a reality for content marketing.

3 Tips for Creating Effective Infographics to Boost Your Content Marketing Strategy

3 Tips for Creating Effective Infographics to Boost Your Content Marketing Strategy | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

When it comes to digital marketing, there are few techniques more widely used than the infographic. And when used effectively, they can provide a serious boost to any content marketing campaign. As noted by Forbes, “When your content is compelling, design can and should be used to communicate this information.” Many companies have found infographics to be an effective manner to communicate content in a clear and concise manner.


The problem is, many infographics produced today are pretty horrendous. Many are confusing or simply fail to provide relevant facts. And while some infographics are able to stand on their own, others become completely useless when removed from the context of the article with which they were originally published. Perhaps that’s part of the reason why infographic production has fallen in decline in recent years.


But effective infographics can supercharge a content marketing campaign, and indeed, continue to be more effective than other types of online content. Research by BuzzSumo found that on average, infographics vastly outperformed all other types of content in terms of online shares—especially on social media....

It's always tough to pick my favorite visualization projects. I mean, it's a challenge to pick and rank your favorite anything really. So much depends on what you feel like at the time, and there's a lot of good work out there. Nevertheless, I gave it a go.

These are my favorites for the year, roughly in order of favorite on down and based on use of data, design, and being useful. Mostly though, my picks are based on gut.

How to Select Memorable Images for Your Content Marketing

How to Select Memorable Images for Your Content Marketing | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it
How much more memorable are visuals compared to text?

One oft-referenced answer is that people remember visuals 6 times better than text—an answer referenced in Buffer’s article on the anatomy of a perfect blog post and an answer that led to a lot of great discussion. After reviewing the original research, it’s clear that pictures are more memorable than words. So the next question became:

People remember visuals better than text. But which visuals exactly?

I’ve spent some time collecting the best research and science on pictures, images, infographics, and more, and I’m excited to share with you what I’ve found—along with some specific ways to use these insights in your marketing!
