Visual Information & How It Affects Website Traffic [Infographic]

Visual Information & How It Affects Website Traffic [Infographic] | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it
Educate yourself about the importance of visual information on your website. With infographics, you will gain a lot more traffic for your growing website.

Visual information is processed faster by the brain, with 90% of all the information that we take in is visual. But the thing with visual information is also that unless it’s a really good story or article, people don’t want to read through a whole page of text when he or she could do something else more fun. So, throw in an infographic with visual information, and you’ll have a winner...

Need An Infographic? Use NEW Visual.ly Marketplace

Need An Infographic? Use NEW Visual.ly Marketplace | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

Marty Note
Creative idea from Visual.ly. Visual.ly is creating an infogrpahic marketplace where you can easily commission work. The process is explained in their demo video here: http://youtu.be/7v8lNRZgoHU . 

I love this idea as a creative example of how to own a market by creating a market. By being the aggregator Visual.ly wins. Spoils in this new digital economy go to the platforms and Visual.ly's creative application of that idea creates a new market where creating an infographic is easier.

The other benefit of creating a market will be pricing competition. I was quoted a pretty HUGE sum to create an infographic about a year ago. Pricing should be moderated by competition.

Some are saying the era of the infogrpahic is over killed by over saturation. I disagree. Visual presentation of data is more engaging and easier to share than white papers and reports. One clear trend in 2012 discussed well by Liz Wilson is the visuals are crushing the textuals. Liz's article discusses the 2 big trends of 2012: the rise of curation and visuals.

How do #B2B companies use social media? | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it
Social media can be a useful tool for creating brand awareness, but are B2B marketers using it for demand generation as well?

 

According to a survey of more than 500 B2B marketers conducted by Eloqua, 64% of UK businesses use social media as a marketing tool, with the most popular reasons being for brand awareness (83%), encouraging social sharing (56%) and gaining trust and followers (55%).

Less than a third (32%) said they use social for lead generation and just 16% use social to assess market perception of their brand.

All Fake, Duplicate and Cat Facebook Profiles Will Be Deleted | Business 2 Community

All Fake, Duplicate and Cat Facebook Profiles Will Be Deleted | Business 2 Community | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

Facebook to police fake profiles.> Do you currently maintain a personal Facebook profile for your cat? Or have a second profile with a fake name just for logging in to other sites? What if you managing social communities for companies, do you have a separate login? Personally, I think this will push many users, especially those community managers to relook at some of the engagment management tools. For small business, I think Engaging Social (http://www.engagingsocial.com) is a good option for social media management.

Social Trust Factor: 10 Tips to Establish Credibility | Social Media Today

Social Trust Factor: 10 Tips to Establish Credibility | Social Media Today | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

As much as you want to think that your Twitter profile, tweet stream, Facebook business page and blog are all about you, they aren’t.


Yes, you can use these platforms to establish authority, build community and trust, it is not a walking billboard of YOU. Your online personas should scream helpfulness, content that inspires, conversation that engages.

Talk to your communities in voices they like to communicate, not in web speak. Ask them what they want if you don’t know. Take time to know your audience, partners, clients and more.

The better you understand your audiences, the better you will be able to help them. The more you help them, the more they will trust you via your actions.
