Native Facebook Videos Get More Reach Than Any Other Type of Post | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it
By the end of 2014, posts were being promoted more than twice as often as they were at the start of the year. And while photos were the most-often promoted posts, they were far from the most effective.

6 Reasons Why Images Increase Your Social Media Reach | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

Social media is growing up.


“Boosting” Posts or creating “Promoted Tweets” can result in gains, but this “pay to play” model is rarely scalable. Luckily, we have science on our side to help us improve our Reach and Engagement Rates without having to reach too far into our budgets.


Digital media marketing analysts have conducted numerous studies on what kind of content performs best on social media platforms, especially Facebook and Twitter. The overwhelming answer? Photos and videos.

The Rise Of Community Lead Media - And Demise Of Social Networks

The Rise Of Community Lead Media - And Demise Of Social Networks | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it
Social media is broken for most of us. The myth of it being a democratic or meritocratic system isn’t holding up to scrutiny. We’re learning that it’s not the place to start thoughtful discussions, vet new ideas, or find complex solutions to niche problems. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a wondrous place for serendipitous snark between celebrities, world leaders, and the public, but the majority of us are spectators.

Based on randomly sampling data from Twitter in 2013, if you had 1K followers you were in the top 4 percent of active users. With 25K, you were in the top tenth of a percent. On top of that, a recent study by Network Insights concluded that nearly 10 percent of Twitter activity is spam.

The World's 21 Most Important Social Media Sites and Apps in 2015 | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

The concepts behind “social networking” aren’t anything new – ever since there have been humans, we have been looking for ways to connect, network, and promote with one another – but they’ve taken on an entirely new meaning (and momentum) in the digital age.


Where we used to have handshakes, word-of-mouth referrals, and stamped letters, today’s relationships are often begun and developed on LinkedIn, Google +, and Facebook.

I thought there's no difference between free and paid content. Content is still KING whether it's paid or free, right? Yet, Chris Garret made realize free content is about connecting with your target audience. Paid content is offered when the audience is converted into first-time or repeat buyers.

Why SEO Is Sabotaging Your Content Marketing

Why SEO Is Sabotaging Your Content Marketing | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it
Your SEO and content marketing strategies have the potential to work beautifully together. In fact, I’d argue you can no longer successfully pull one off without the other.

But a problem arises when your SEO strategies actually start hurting your content marketing efforts. It’s not just about using outdated or ineffective SEO strategies either, although this is certainly one of the major culprits. It’s also about not allowing one strategy to work with and inform the other.

The Content Marketing Ecosystem Is at a Crossroads

The Content Marketing Ecosystem Is at a Crossroads | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it
According to Mark Schaefer’s book, The Content Code, by 2020 the amount of information on the Internet will have grown by 500 percent. Even at today’s rate of online publishing, social media and search engines can barely keep up fulfilling their promise of content distribution for many brands and media outlets alike.

Only 10 organic search engine results appear on the first page of most search engines and organic social media visibility is declining like the Russian economy.


With online publishing growing every day, brands are being forced to find new and innovative ways to get their content in front of the audiences that matter to them.

I am always an advocate for a good technical communications analogy, especially when it concerns content, and Rahel Bailie has "hit it out of the park" (to use the baseball expression) with this article. Rahel knows her audience very well in two respects--she knows how to write about intelligent content well, and she also knows how many technical communicators are "foodies"! 

 

Well done, Rahel. This is a fantastic article, and all content strategists should read this.

Video content has a proven reputation of a great attention keeper and engagement booster. Through increased levels of engagement, video keeps people on the website and social media pages longer. It also presents information in a visual way, aiding in information retention and brand interest.
