How to Effectively Use Visual Content in Social Media Marketing [infographic]

How to Effectively Use Visual Content in Social Media Marketing  [infographic] | Social Media News | Scoop.it
Social media has trended towards visual content. In the past two years, Facebook launched Timelines, Pinterest became the third most popular social network, and Google+ relaunched with a visual-centric interface. Visual content allows you to craft a distinct brand identity, garner new interest, and connect on an emotional level with customers and fans. In short, a picture is worth way more than a thousand words.

Roberto Ludovici's curator insight, January 6, 5:28 AM
I social media hanno mostrato nel tempo uno spostamento verso il contenuto visivo . Negli ultimi due anni , Facebook ha lanciato la propria Timeline , Pinterest è diventato il terzo social network più popolare , e Google ha rilanciato con un'interfaccia visivo - centrica . Contenuto visivo consente di realizzare una identità di marca distinta, genera nuovo interesse , e di connettersi a livello emotivo con i clienti e fan . In breve , una foto vale molto più di mille parole .
John Norman's curator insight, January 11, 11:00 PM

This certainly makes a lot of sense and while most of us like using visual elements, if you like me, we have been a bit slow it making use of this valuable component. Instagram is one area that has shown itself to be a viable marketing tool. Its pleasing to use because there is so much material around in the form of motivational quotes etc and you can put your own creative touches to images to help with your own branding.

What a shame. I may not have been the most active person on Foursquare, I did use it for check-ins I really wanted people to know about. I originally fell in love with it because it had a much better pinpoint of where I was compared to Facebook's check-in. What a shame.
