Still Think Digital Advertising Is A Fad? #Infographic

Still Think Digital Advertising Is A Fad?  #Infographic | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | 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.

The Key Role Of Quality Curation in the Future of Media

The Key Role Of Quality Curation in the Future of Media | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

In his recent business trip to Australia, Edelman’s Steve Rubel discussed his thoughts on the future of the media with Yvonne Adele at Social Media Club Melbourne.

 

 

 

 

Here are some highlights from this article:

 

*** Content surplus as a bankable trend:

In an era of self-publication (for brands as well as individuals) and increased noise we’re all faced with the problem of too much content and not enough time. For media companies, scaling this information and providing value through quality curation is a great opportunity to solve this problem for the consumer.

 

Steve’s top tips for being a quality curator:

- Be knowledgeable and well read on your subject matter of choice;
- Save materials for later reading – it’s all an opportunity to be well informed and provide value to others;
- Focus on depth, not breadth. As Steve said, he knows a lot about a few things, and little about most things.

 

***People want to connect with the human element of a brand and those that work for the organisation.

 

***Journalists and media are now community managers. They have to see their role not only as a reporter/journalist/presenter – but as a brand ambassador who is able to acquire consumers and an build an audience through these channels.

 

***Steve’s top three emerging trends for media?

1) Building business models that incorporate curation;
2) Increased data mining and analytics about real-time engagement with media content;
3) The increased importance of facebook’s open graph.

Moreover, Steve Rubel also moderated a News Limited and Herald Sun panel on the future of journalism.

Here's A Content Marketing Plan That Delivers Results! [Infographic included]

Here's A Content Marketing Plan That Delivers Results! [Infographic included] | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

I selected this piece was written by Chris Sietsema for convinceandconvert blog because the post plus the infographic lays out a very clear and concise plan to create your content marketing strategy.

 

**Whether you're creating or curating content, this is something I think is very useful. This is why I rescooped this from my content marketing, social media and beyond  topic.

 

Here are a few highlights from the article:

 

He compares selecting and producing content to what he calls "bricks" and "feathers".

 

Bricks are referred to as research reports

 

**are larger content productions such as research reports, events, white papers        .

    video series, mobile apps, etc

 

**have the potential to make a larger splash when executed and promoted correctly.

 

Feathers are comprised of simple text and photo content published via popular social media tools like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, etc.

 

**Less intensive than bricks from a production budget standpoint, feathers are created consistently to maintain an ongoing stream of communication between a brand and its audience.

 

The infographic shows you how to discern what content to use and illustrates the how, what, why and when to use it.

I like this analogy/metaphor. It is easy and quick to make feathers from your bricks, but the bricks take time. Can a curated collection of feathers be made into a brick? :-)

I'm glad you liked the article! I love your question, I do think a curated collection of feathers around a particular theme can be turned into a brick. What comes to mind, if you're distilling the comments from the posts (feathers) it's possible that this could evolve into a (brick) research reports, white papers, the possibilities are endless:-)
Beth Kanter's comment, February 26, 2012 1:23 PM
What comes to mind is that a smashed brick is a lot of feathers .. and that you can lead them back to the brick ... for example, I work with some advocacy folks who have these huge bricks called policy papers. They could tweet key points w/links back to the papers on Twitter. Have them cued up for a month in advance .. as you say the techniques are endless .. What I found most helpful was the objectives and metrics ..

The Rapid Rise of Pinterest's Blockbuster User Engagement [CHART]

The Rapid Rise of Pinterest's Blockbuster User Engagement [CHART] | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

This piece (user chart included) was written and posted by Matt Silverman, contributing editor for Mashable, .

 

My commentary (I'm personally experiencing amazing results after being on Pinterest for about 4 months).

 

****Even with all the hooplah surrounding Pinterest, it's important to remember, that Pinterest is only a side dish in your business, paying attention to your main course and how Pinterest supports that is what is key. See article here: http://bit.ly/yXET4P by John Jantsch.

 

Having said that...........

 

This user engagement chart is astounding, as you see the rise in Pinterest users in a very short time.

 

**In my opinion, Pinterest gives you the opportunity to showcase your work without a lot of text anything that gives us a breather in that way is a blessing.

 

**Images speak a thousand words if you know how to use them properly.

 

**Showing other sides of you that are consistent with your brand message gives people a chance to see you beyond the text you post on other sites.

 

**Pinboards like favorite books, homes and spaces, etc. give people points of entry, a connection with you because they identify and like the same things, a great way to start a conversation, have them look to see what you do and who you are.

 

**Everything we do online tells a story about us, it's our digital identity, Pinterest is a place where you can tell your story in a whole different way.

 

**Pinterest is also a place where you can relax, fantasize about the wardrope you'd love to have, or the amazing car or cars you want to have. Let's face it, we're all plugged in 24/7, this is a place where you can lighten up and/or market your business all on the same site.

 

**Pinterest is not only gaining a ton of users, but those users are spending an average of 89 minutes on the site

 

** Facebook is still leading by 405 minutes along with Tumblr also 89 minutes but it's obvious Pinterest is moving up quickly.

 

**It's important to know how to use Pinterest to showcase what you do in a subtle but engaging way
