7 Things I Learned from the First Blogger

7 Things I Learned from the First Blogger | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it

I was first called “Charlie Brown” in 8th grade. I refused to stand up and say the Pledge of Allegiance with the other kids. I didn’t like being forced to do anything. Afterwards some kids came up to me.

 

“Hey Charlie Brown,” one of them said, “you a commie?”

 

“No,” I said, “I just don’t like being forced to do something.”

 

“He’s more like a Linus,” Larry Sorbino said. Having stayed back a grade or so he was having more sex than anyone else in junior high school. I was definitely jealous of him. Everyone laughed because he was the leader of the roost. “Linus, hahaha.” And then for the next few months people would pass me in the hallway and sneer, “Hey Linus, haha” or, when they forgot who Linus was, “Hey Charlie Brown, haha!”...

How To Find Royalty Free Images That Haven’t Been Overused

How To Find Royalty Free Images That Haven’t Been Overused | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it

I don't know you, but for me, images are very important. A text without an image, is like a sky without stars. For this reason, I like this post with several ressources, maybe you too! [note Martin Gysler]

 

“Hey, I’ve seen that image before. Actually, I’ve seen it many times before.”


Images allow you to express what words can’t.

 

They draw the viewer in and elicit an emotional impact, providing your users with information while confirming that what your selling or promoting is real.

 

There are many affordable options available to purchase stock photography. This may be a blessing or a curse. Affordability often comes at the cost of originality.

 

It’s important to consider your ideals and the image’s ability to illustrate a concept perfectly. But consider originality as well. You wouldn’t want to fall into the trap of using cliche imagery because it’s easy and convenient.

The 5 Keys to Content Marketing Mastery

The 5 Keys to Content Marketing Mastery | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it

What does it take to be the best?


The best copywriter, the best graphic designer, the best blogger, the best content marketer?

 

The off-the-cuff answer is 10,000 hours, popularized by the great Malcolm Gladwell book Outliers. That’s what you need to become a renowned concert violinist, a brilliant mathematician, a chess grandmaster, a Pulitzer-winning novelist.

 

That’s 20 hours a week for 10 years.

 

You may respond to this one of two ways. You might get depressed and re-consider applying for that barista job at Starbuck’s. Or you may decide to sit down and start plunking away at those hours.

Page Owners: Save your Discussions from Your Facebook Page Before it’s too Late!

Page Owners: Save your Discussions from Your Facebook Page Before it’s too Late! | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it

Since the early days, Facebook page owners had the possibility to add a Discussions tab to their Facebook page. At some point, over 55 Million users were using this tab to talk, share their points of view, give feedback, and connect with each other. Then Facebook changed the layout of the pages, which lead to a drop in traffic, but the tab is still widely used today: 22 Million users per month use this tab.

 

Conscious of those issues, we have built a free Facebook Application called Forum for Pages in order to offer a solution for page owners to keep the discussions on their Facebook pages. The application is easy to use...
