Ready For The Visual Marketing Revolution? 12 Tips From Infographics Experts Column Five

Ready For The Visual Marketing Revolution? 12 Tips From Infographics Experts Column Five | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

Making Warby Parker's Annual Report VISUAL
As Beyonce proved when she rethought her last album to be more visual the visual marketing revolution is here (Beyonce covered here http://sco.lt/7Pci1p). Here are 12 GREAT Visual Marketing Tips from Column 5 the Infographics experts:

1. Be Visual. 
2. Show YOUR Personality.

3. Only share NEWSWORTHY news.

4. Let People See Your Engine (able to look behind the curtain).

5. Focus on and Feature Your POEPLE.

6. Make IT Easy To Share (and IT is everything).

7. Present DATA in context.

8. Don't forget the TANGENTIAL. 
9. Share the LOVE. 
10. Product Tie-Ins should happen NATURALLY and ORGANICALLY.

11. Share VALUES.

12. Pat yourself on the BACK every now and again. 

My favorite is FEATURE YOUR PEOPLE. Clients ask me and/or complain they have no good content. Nonsense you have amazing content sitting at desks or on the shop floor.

 

Telling your product's story by proxy, by telling the stories of the people that work on it, is a brilliant way to create STICKY content that isn't self-serving and feels more TRUE.

Do you know that Google supports hashtag search?

The feature has been there for a few months. However, I only became aware of it a day or two ago. Not only does Google surface results for Google+ (public posts and posts shared with you), but it also links to Twitter and Facebook! Here is an example of what happens with the hashtag #socialmedia (I'm logged into my G+, Twitter, and Facebook accounts). Click the picture to see the zoomed version. Not logged into your profiles? No problem! You can still see results for Google+ and Twitter. Now, go have fun on Google Search! :-)

Big Data: Large Dataset Curation & Sharing with AcademicTorrents


Via Robin Good
more...
Robin Good's curator insight, February 3, 5:13 AM



AcademicTorrents is a new web service which allows any organization owning large datasets (no size limits) to easily distribute them without needing a dedicated infrastructure.


The brainchild of Joseph Cohen and Henry Lo, two PhD students working at the University of Massachusetts in Boston, Academic Torrents facilitates the job of researchers, journalists and information analysts in finding, accessing, curating and downloading large-size datasets.


Technically-speaking AcademicTorrents is a bittorrent-type redundant high-speed network and a full distributed system for sharing enormous datasets. As a P2P system it doesn't require intermediate servers, is also fully scalable, secure, fault-tolerant and can act as a reliable repository for data allowing fast downloads.


Users can also search the full index, and can create curated datasets collections containing any kind of files and which can be downloaded as a full bundle.


This type of system could prove to be an excellent resource for libraries storing digital papers as they would store books, and for simplifying the distribution requirements of any organization needing to publish, curate and share large datasets.


"A robust distributed replication design allows libraries to utilize this system as their backbone. Providing fault tolerant hosting of curated data for a university, research lab, or home library.

...Also, this system can be used as the foundation of a new open-access publishing system where libraries manage data instead of licenses for external data sources.

Curate and Syndicate Your Own Custom Mobile TV Channel App with iLook.TV

Curate and Syndicate Your Own Custom Mobile TV Channel App with iLook.TV | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

"iLook.TV crowdsources TV channels, TV programs and TV commercials."


Via Robin Good

Robin Good's curator insight, January 26, 2:29 AM


iLook.TV lets you curate custom TV channels distributable via smartphone compatible apps that act as pay-TV like subscription channels.


The channels are commercial and can include or accept advertising requests thus providing a monetization opportunity for channel curators.


iLook.TV is made up of two components:

1) iLook.TV website where you create your channels

2) iLook.TV ChannelApp for ditributing your custom channel
 

In a Channel you can add / syndicate video clips and submit TV commercials to the iLook.TV system.


The ChannelApp is instead a mobile app that can be fully utilized by Channel subscribers as Program Guide for your channel as well as a TV remote to watch specific video content on their connected large TV screens. The ChannelApp can be branded, configured and submitted to the Apple App Store.


ILOOKTV supports three methods of monetization: subscription, pay-per-view, and TV commercials.


Soecifically:

  • A Channel subscription must be purchased by a TV viewer to play videos that are marked premium.


  • Pay-per-view (PPV) videos are marked with “Buy” (forever) or “Rent” (for 24-hours) and require a payment from a TV viewer.


  • TV commercials are submitted to the ILOOKTV system by advertisers and are automatically played on Channels that request them.  Advertisers are automatically charged for each insertion via instant auctions.

.

Revenues are collected by iLook.TV from subscriptions, PPV and commercials and are automatically shared with Channel owners.

.

The cost to own a Channel is $100 per year. 

N.B.: Channel owners also need to pay the standard $100 Apple Developer fee when they submit the ChannelApp to the Apple App Store.

.

Promising concept. Rough implementation.
A glimpse at what the future of video curated content may look like in the near future.

2.Reduce,归纳- 在线索栏,将这些事实,思想和概念归纳概括为一个词汇、或一句短话。

3.Recite,背诵 - 利用线索栏的提示,尽可能全面、而非机械地,用你自己的语言复述你所记录的主栏中有关讲座内容的事实、思想,然后对照笔记确认你所讲的。

Create, Publish and Curate Your Company Social Hub with Uberflip

Create, Publish and Curate Your Company Social Hub with Uberflip | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

Robin Good's curator insight, February 11, 2:26 PM



Uberflip is a new web publishing tool that allows a company to easily create a social hub populated with the most relevant content coming from their main media properties, including blogs, RSS feeds, social media channels, images and videos, presentations and PDF documents.


Uberflip publishing metaphor is the "hub" in which, similarly to Rebelmouse and Pressly you can create multiple channels where you either aggregate or curate theme-specific content.


Among Uberflip unique features there is the ability to import and convert PDF documents into editable flipbooks, an array of widgets that can be added to integrate more functionalities (e.g.: Disqus comments) and a call-to-action feature allowing you to integrate customizable and elegant subscription boxes that directly connect to your newsletter provider (e.g.: Malchimp). 


Check my test site to get an idea of what you can do with it: http://robingood.uberflip.com/h/ 


My comment: Compared to Rebelmouse, Pressly, Uberflip is a tough contender. Its key strengths are the elegant and clean output design, which displays excellently also on tablets and smartphones and the breadth of features for curating and collecting content (e.g.: custom collections). Uberflip is also the only tool of this kind that integrates a PDF to flipbook conversion engine, allowing you to integrate any company PDF into one or more collections in a beautiful format to view.


The Basic version, which allows for one hub with multiple channels, one custom collection and one CTA costs $49.95/month. Higher priced versions at 199 and 499/mo allow for using your custom domain, more collections, CTAs and additional features including analytics and other features.    


Pricing info: http://www.uberflip.com/pricing 


Free 14-day trial.

Bettina Ascaino's curator insight, January 25, 4:16 AM

Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Few people know that it is actually possible to curate Wikipedia content into custom print books or PDF / OpenDocument ebooks that contain exactly the content you want in the order you specify.

 

Once you are logged into Wikipedia you simply activate the Book Creator Tool and then, from that moment on, everytime you visit a Wikipedia page you can click and add it to your curated Wiki-Book.

 

There is also a dedicated wiki page where you can manage the pages you have collected and you can reorganized and sort them any way you want, eliminating the pages you don't need.

 

Unfortunately there is no integrated way to edit and further customize the content of those pages for your own use.

 

PDF versions are freely downloadable by anyone, print book versions are paid.

 

N.B.: The price for print books depends on the number of pages, starting with US$ 7.90 for books up to 100 pages. 10% of the gross sales price goes to the Wikimedia Foundation. Books are perfect bound, printed in the dimensions 8.5 inch x 5.5 inch (216 mm x 140 mm) and contain a table of contents, your chapters and articles, licensing information next to an index.
