The 16 best tools to make awesome Inforgraphics

The 16 best tools to make awesome Inforgraphics | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

Infographics are all the rage at the moment, particularly with the rise in popularity of sites like Pinterest where visuals and images of statistics are being shared.
What are inforgraphics?
Inforgraphics are visual representation of data with small, relevant and clearly displayed nuggets of information. But infographics are not just useful to consume, they are also useful to produce for your business. People want their information quicker and using visuals are an excellent way to do this. Their eye-catching appeal draws more attraction than your average blog. Comprising interesting facts presented in a concise nature will maintain the attention of your readers, plus it’s good to break up your blog with different types of content (video, articles, visuals etc)
I recently shared an infograhic (Know Thy Internet Marketing Commandments) and found that generated a lot more shares than an average blog post. Using inforgraphics is a great way to share content, get more backlinks and more traffic back to your blog.

Why you need to stop doing social and make or review your content strategy. Now. - Michael Q Todd

Why you need to stop doing social and make or review your content strategy. Now. - Michael Q Todd | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

Do you have a niche and a content strategy to match it?

 

Content, either created or curated is the King and Queen in 2012. Do you have a strategy? There is an order to doing certain things.
A base or foundation that has to be in place before you begin building on top of it.
A lot of us rush into Social Media without having that base. Then we wonder why the whole thing brings us so little. It is in fact highly damaging to your brand to be using Social media without defining your niche and strategy. Impressions of you once formed are more difficult to alter than if you simply start afresh.

Why You Shouldn’t Ignore Google+ Anymore

Why You Shouldn’t Ignore Google+ Anymore | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

Google+ has now been with us for one year.

It almost seems like it was just yesterday when it was announced.

 

Part of me said “not another social network” while the other curious Jeff thought “this could be what we need to keep Facebook honest”

12 months later it appears that it is now the third largest social network in the English speaking world behind Twitter and of course Facebook.

 

What a lot of people don’t realize as cocooned westerners is that we don’t have a monopoly on successful social networks with Sina Weibo in China having over 300 million users with over 100 million messages being posted every day.


It does appear though that it is now possible that Google+ will be knocking on Facebook’s door within a couple years.

Social Media and SMO

Social Media and SMO | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

Social media has taken a great leap forward in the recent years. Websites like Facebook, Twitter, My Space, Linkedin, Classmates, Orkut etc have become an integral part of our life.The concept of 'tweets' and 'likes' are being taught in management schools. In short, people have found a good friend in these so called social media websites. These websites are an effective medium for advertising and companies are using these sites to generate awareness about their brands and services.

 

SMO stands for Social Media Optimization. These are a set of techniques which increases your website's presence in the social media websites. It encourages people to spread the buzz about your company,brand,product or services and makes it popular.

How anyone can message you on Facebook now (whether you want them to or not) | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it
In 2010, Facebook rolled out the optional @facebook.com email address, which allowed users to send and receive external emails from their Facebook account.

 

As of today it is no longer an option AND Facebook has made it the default email setting for all Facebook accounts (you can see detailed instructions on how to change your default email back here).

Don't Be a Social Media Guinea Pig

Don't Be a Social Media Guinea Pig | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

When it comes to social media, there are few sure bets. One thing’s certain, however: people go nuts for new stuff. Show someone the latest gizmo, doodad, or whatchamacallit dubbed the “Next Big Thing,” and it will be very difficult for him or her to resist the urge to jump aboard. 

 

As, a result, we end up becoming Guinea pigs for every new social media site that comes our way, testing, trying, and hoping we’ve finally succeeded in our quest to be an early adopter of something that matters.

 

The sad truth is, of course, most the new stuff we sign up for doesn’t matter. It doesn’t fix our old problems and it doesn’t make us any happier, more fulfilled, or smarter. All we end up with is less time for the things we say would make us happier, more fulfilled, or smarter if only we had time for them. In addition, we quickly learn that there’s no prize for being first. We just end up wasting time on sparsely populated networks, waiting for others to migrate away from the Same Old Stuff we thought we’d left behind on the road to thought leadership.

Two Reasons Why You Should Never Take a ReTweet for Granted.

Two Reasons Why You Should Never Take a ReTweet for Granted. | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

A retweet is like throwing a pebble into the water and watching it ripple.

Most recently I have been asked why I thank every retweet I receive as well as if I actually thank Tweeters or use a tool. I can tell you that I personally thank each person who retweets my tweets and there are two reasons why I do this.

The first motive seems simple enough, yet the action has far greater potential than at first glance. A retweet not only signifies that the Tweeter “liked” the type of content you shared, but it also means that they were willing to share it amongst their followers. Retweeting your tweet out of their followers is a quick process, but the amplification of your twitter handle and the content they chose to retweet of yours gets some longevity.

If you want to continue to reach your market in the social media age, the marketing focus needs to be on building relationships, and metrics need to expand beyond ROI. In fact, ROI is simple dollars and cents. But a return on relationship is the value — both perceived and real — that will accrue over time through connection, loyalty, recommendations, and sharing. That’s what any marketer actually wants, and here’s how to do it.

Social Networking Vs. Social Media – Understand The Difference | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it
People feel a natural need to hook up and increase their relationships. There is an in-depth based need among human beings to share.

 

Just as the online world has changed, the scene of people to buy music, arrange holidays, and research at school projects, has also changed the way of how they interact and gather socially. With the use of public networking, individuals can exchange pictures and videos, share their thoughts at the weblogs, and participate in conversations organized by online boards. Social media and social networking allow companies, organizations, individuals, authorities, and the parliamentarians to reach thousands of individuals.

10 Things You May Not Know About YouTube

10 Things You May Not Know About YouTube | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it
Social media verse is full of some best kept secrets. YouTube is one of them. Yet when I think about cultural shifts enabled by social media, YouTube is the place that comes most vibrantly to mind. It's big, wide and deep.

 

In my last post I mentioned that the social media ‘verse is full of some best kept secrets. YouTube is one of them.


This Time cover from a couple of years ago (with the shiny mirrored screen) was prescient, but not quite enough… I’d cross that ‘You’ out and say ‘Us’. Hasn’t it felt that way these last couple of years? How we’ve grown a global collective consciousness?


Despite this cover, YouTube is not usually the first site that comes to mind when thinking about social media. I guess we take it a bit for granted while we wax rhapsodic about Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr and Quora. Yet when I think about cultural shifts enabled by social media, YouTube is the place that comes most vibrantly to mind. It’s big, wide and deep.

The 6 Types Of SocialMedia Users.

The 6 Types Of SocialMedia Users. | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

At this point, no single customer engagement channel can deliver marketers a complete picture of consumer behavior. 

Google knows what you’re interested in, but not what you’ve done. Facebook knows who your friends are, but not what you buy. Pinterest knows what you share, but not how you act on it. Foursquare knows where you are, but not what you like. You get the idea.

Social media measurement is critical to success, but brands have been unable to get their arms around what it is and what it means.

So, marketers must define success not by social media activity, but rather by customer value and engagement.

 

Aimia has identified 6 social media personas in the U.S. as folows..

No Shows (41%): No Shows haven’t logged on to a social network in the last 30 days. Most likely a 65-plus male, they typically exhibit low degrees of trust and have no interest in broadcasting their activities or interests to anyone. Newcomers (15%): Newcomers are typical passive users of a single social media network. They may reluctantly join Facebook, for example, in order not to feel “left behind”. Newcomers primarily use social media to enhance their online relationships. Onlookers (16%): Onlookers may lurk on several social media networks, but they post infrequently. They rely on social media primarily to keep up on the online lives of others within their social networks, but are reluctant to share details about themselves. Onlookers want complete control of their online information. Cliquers (6%): Cliquers are active, single-network users who congregate primarily on Facebook. They’re most likely to be women, and most of their online sharing includes photos, status updates, and comments. They’re active and influential within their small network of close friends and family. Mix-n-Minglers (19%): Mix-n-Minglers participate actively on multiple social networking platforms. They like to follow brands in order to receive o ffers and keep up with the latest news. They also understand the importance of data privacy. They meet many of their friends online and they’re influential in their networks. Sparks (3%): Sparks are the most active and deeply engaged users of social media. They use social media tools as a means of self-expression. While Sparks are still concerned about online privacy, they work to control the online conversation. Sparks typically boast the most open social networks amongst the six personas. They engage with brands frequently, and are enthusiastic ambassadors for their favorites.

5 Reasons You Should Measure Social Media Return on Investment

5 Reasons You Should Measure Social Media Return on Investment | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

Are you wondering if measuring social media return on investment(ROI) is important?

 

Let’s start by addressing the elephant in the room. Is ROI the right measure of success for social media?

There are many who would argue that a financial return doesn’t show the true value of social media for the organization. I would agree that ROI doesn’t paint the full picture.

However, the bottom line is that executives and business owners sleep, eat, and breathe ROI. It has been the measure of success since the beginning of their careers and while we can jump up and down and tell them it isn’t a complete picture, they aren’t going to believe it until they see it.

Therefore, it’s time to get serious about ROI, but that doesn’t mean that you should sacrifice other types of metrics that help to round out the story. You need both and this is why.

Social Media or give me a network for showing off by #engagement

Social Media or give me a network for showing off by #engagement | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

Social Media means always a fair and honest relationship with people. People need to be understood and felt and a real and supportive engagement and interaction with them is important.

 

We should see people as REAL in social media – for they are REAL. They are human beings with desires and aims. They show themselves more open than in real life because they seek our attention, our trust and our appreciation.


We should always be open and supportive for these people. What we sow may come back to us. We only will win through helping others.
This trend for an important engagement in social media is often abused to the own advantage. People show their engagement and support for others and try to impress people with that. A kind of showing off culture in engagement has grown up. Who engages most, is able to impress much, people think.
