We’re in the midst of a generational shift, with Millennials expected to surpass Baby Boomers in 2015 as the largest living generation.

How to Integrate Social Media and Blogging from The Art of Social Media

How to Integrate Social Media and Blogging from The Art of Social Media | Social Media and Digital Publishing | Scoop.it

Ideas that spread, win. ~Seth Godin

 

A few years ago, blogging and social media were separate. Blogging was long-form, serious, and crafted. Social media was short-form, personal, and spontaneous. Some people predicted that social media would replace blogging because of declining attention spans.

 

Now blogging and social media not only amicably coexist; they complement each other. The trick is to use a blog to enrich your social media with long-form posts and to use social media to promote your blog.I recently did a live webinar event with Marketo about The Art of Social Media, and we’d like to share the takeaways from the presentation and a few of the follow-up questions that we answered....

Visual, Visual, Visual....

 

(From the article): Adding visual content to your social media strategy is a no-brainer, but using visual content that reaches your fans emotions and catches their eye is the smart marketer’s approach.

 

Whether you’re creating original content, sourcing photographs or shooting your own always consider how it will impact your audience.

How do you stand out from your competitors? Do certain types of visual posts work better for you than others?

The New Weapon of Choice in the Social Platform Wars: Content | Social Media and Digital Publishing | Scoop.it
Every social media platform is locked in a turf war for people’s time, and many platforms are realizing good stories—better stories, longer stories, more polished stories—will make an audience want to stick around. Even chat apps like Kik are courting publishers to bulk up on content. It’s a safe bet Instagram and Pinterest will follow suit and aggressively upgrade their unique content offerings in the next few months.
