My $45,300 Mistake: How Text Drives More Traffic Than Video Content

My $45,300 Mistake: How Text Drives More Traffic Than Video Content | Social Media | Scoop.it

Last Thursday, I launched Quick Sprout University, which is a free video library of 107 videos that helps you learn online marketing.

 

The purpose of launching Quick Sprout University was to see how video content performed against free software tools and content guides.

 

An advanced guide can easily generate Quick Sprout 361,494 visitors and 8,421 email opt-ins within a few months. A free marketing tool, on the other hand, generated Quick Sprout 17,747 unique visitors within 4 days, and it helped increase time spent on site to over 3 minutes.So, how did the videos perform compared to the other marketing tactics I leveraged? Here are the results...

Study: Brands Simply Aren't Replying on Twitter | Social Media | Scoop.it

If you manage a brand's Twitter account, chances are you're not interacting as much as you could be. And that's not a good thing.

 

Simply Measured took a look at 98 of the top global brands on Twitter and found some eye-opening information.

 

From Mashable:

During the final three months of 2013, 98 of Interbrand's top 100 global brands tweeted at least once and the average company tweeted 12 times per day, according to data from Simply Measured, a social media analytics provider. However, the report also found that 54% of these Interbrand companies send less than one @-reply per day....

Beyond The Stats
This is a great Blogging For Brands Infographic, but there is more to why brands must blog than stats. We live in a connected age when anyone can get to know anything.

Blogs create a sense of VOICE. They have a tone and a rhythm that communicates mountains of information about what a brand is really about. Blogs help supply the brand advocates any company depends on with social ammunition and fodder for their own blogs.

Blogs also react to what is happening NOW. If there is a national story an active blog is a great place to share your take. If there is a ripple in your brand's fabric a blog is a great place to iron out the wrinkle.

This is not to say that blogs are defensive. Blogs imply a promise - we will share on a regular basis and you (our brand advocates) can comment, participate and inform our efforts. Blogs say you are in this WITH US (visitors and brand advocates).

The collaborative idea of a blog can help a brand match its walk and talk, create a distinct tone and become a hub for all social marketing. Blogs are a must for brands and for many more reasons that captured in this excellent infographic.
