Still Think Digital Advertising Is A Fad? #Infographic

Still Think Digital Advertising Is A Fad?  #Infographic | SM | Scoop.it
Digital marketing isn't a fad - it's the future. And although it may be a notoriously difficult task to project the future; the most telling variable is what's happening in the present.

 

Look around you and you'll notice that the world is connected, communicating and constantly clicking.

 

There's no reason to believe that the demographic cohort that will follow Generation Y, will be any different. In fact, the next generation will be the first that cannot conceive a world that isn't defined and enabled by the Internet, mobile devices and online social networking. Still not convinced?

 

The following Infographic by ROI Media  - http://bit.ly/JOOy40 - presents an overview of the digital landscape, and the changes pointing towards the need for social media marketing in commerce.

What's The Secret Recipe for Viral Content Marketing Success?

What's The Secret Recipe for Viral Content Marketing Success? | SM | Scoop.it
We know that content marketing is one of the best ways to engage with audiences and potential customers online. But what happens when a business has tried content marketing and has seen few returns?

 

"What if you don’t have years; don’t have the time, energy, or budgets to create compelling content on a regular basis; or simply need to build an audience fast? The answer is this: you must create something viral; content that can spread in a way that creates massive attention. Content that will boost you above the writhing masses, and make others take notice."

What if you don't have years? The heck with that, what if you don't have any appreciable time at all. If your like most small businesses you need a steady stream of action and growth yesterday, the luxury of waiting for results doesn't exist for you.


Kelsey Libert lays out one of the best explanations of how content marketing may go viral, and how emotions may be the determining factor of viral success.


Libert deftly winds us through the maze of viral content marketing but beware this is not a walk through the park where you'll learn and understand everything in 5 minutes. Stick with it and you'll find lots of gems.


Step 1: Understanding the truth about your competition


Step 2: Engagement is good, but viral is better


Step 3: Understanding what it means to “go viral"


Step 4: Creating content with a viral coefficient above 1


Step 5: Decreasing viral cycle time


Step 6: The limitations of virality and the importance of audience.


Step 7: Considerations for fractal virality


Take this with you: Be Willing To Fail

Forget Branded Content, Tell a Great Story - Forbes

Forget Branded Content, Tell a Great Story - Forbes | SM | Scoop.it

"It’s not logical to think that consumers will ever volunteer to watch or share our marketing, so let’s stop making marketing and instead start telling stories. We need to unshackle ourselves from old formats and embrace an idea that has existed since humans first began communicating."

 

The only piece that's missing in this post is any discussion about the fundamental dynamic of storytelling:  story sharing. It seems the author is still focused on broadcasting stories instead of engaging in swapping stories with customers (i.e. listening to their stories in return).

 

But one step at a time :) ....

Hi Robin,
Excellent piece! I love your observations and agree with you - "brands need to engage in swapping stories and listen to their stories in return"
