janlgordon's curator insight, August 27, 8:30 AM

I selected this article and infographic from Hubspot because it's concise and has everything you need to create something that will provide value for your audience and give you the results you're looking from your content.


Here are some highlights:


Shorter Paragraphs


Also, part of catering to that whole people-love-to-scan-articles-on-the-web thing is writing short paragraphs. It’s much easier for people to scan when there are small chunks of content to look over -- so make sure you’re keeping your paragraphs short and sweet.


 Relevant Internal Links


Blog posts are often the first interaction people will have with your company, but you don’t want it to be the last. So make sure you’re including a reasonable number of relevant internal links to other pieces of your content throughout your post. These links could be helpful to your readers.



Smart CTA


Smart CTAs help you show tailored content to people in different lifecycle stages or lists in your database -- and because the content is more relevant to them, they’re more likely to convert.

Curatti is proud to present an ongoing series by Raymond Morin on the changing landscape of the multi-generational, connected consumer. What marketers need to do to retain and keep their customers.


In our ongoing attempt to stay true to our brand promise of "The Editors Chaos" We will be providing articles like this to help you shift your thinking and give suggestions on how you can best serve your readers and/or customers.


 Here are a few highlights:

 

The issue of online consumers


"Over the next year, a leading business challenge will be to integrate new generations.

 

To fully understand the new paradigms of online consumers, we must stop compartmentalizing generations in silos, and instead take a more comprehensive view of the phenomenon, and look more toward the new generation of responsible consumers.

 

This generation of active and trendy consumers, seniors and baby boomers, generations X, Y and Z, that generation is now called Generation C.

 

Today, to stand out from the clutter of content and information that flows through social networks, marketing efforts must now be more targeted and focused on the experience and satisfaction of the customer

Decaf 2.0 Theme updated with responsiveness and a touch-ready Awesomebar

Decaf 2.0 Theme updated with responsiveness and a touch-ready Awesomebar | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

The Decaf theme has been available for Moodle since near the launch of Moodle 2.0 and provides a some neat tools for Moodlers:

* an admin focused bar for site statistics
* a user focused menu for other users to help navigate and manage their accounts
* custom logo
* custom footnote
* custom menus as part of Awesomebar
* and much more

According to the download area,

    Decaf is a three-column, fluid-width theme for Moodle that was created by Lei Zhang and Paul Nicholls. It improves usability by fixing an “Awesomebar” at the top of the screen, which provides dropdown menus containing everything in the Navigation and Settings blocks.

    For developers, it also transforms the performance info into a colorful bar which floats at the bottom of the screen, which increases awareness of the performance statistics.

The update for 2.7 (RC1) also includes a new update to Awesomebar which is touch-ready for smaller devices accessing the site. Download it and find links for bug tracking here: https://moodle.org/plugins/view.php?plugin=theme_decaf

Curation: Creatively Filtering Content

Curation: Creatively Filtering Content | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
Curation is a life skill and an important part of being digitally literate.  Educators need to know how to curate information so they can teach students how they can curate content for research, their interests and passion. As part of this process educators need to encourage students to curate information using techniques that address their own personal learning needs.

We introduce content curation using both Diigo and Scoop.it in our E-Learning for Educators class. It's our firm belief that online teachers must be information fluent and that they teach those skills to their online students.


We also see these skills as a strong foundation for building personal learning networks.
