Social Media Marketing: 3 Digital Local Marketing Tactics You Must Use in 2015

Social Media Marketing: 3 Digital Local Marketing Tactics You Must Use in 2015 | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
Eight in 10 American adults are now online, and teenagers and millennials are permanently glued to smartphones and tablets. So, for a local business looking to market its products and services digitally, the iron has never been hotter.

But which tactics to use? How about email? Yep, email is still as relevant today as it has ever been. Did you know, for example, that 91 percent of consumers check their email daily, and that 66 percent have made a purchase online as a result of an email marketing message?

What about social? Around three-quarters of online adults use social media, with Facebook driving almost two-thirds of all traffic to Shopify sites.

And don’t forget about your online reputation – 79 percent of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations, and a one-star increase in your Yelp rating can lead to a 5-9 percent increase in revenue.

Check out the visual below for three digital local marketing tactics you must use in 2015, which comes courtesy of Brand Muscle.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, January 26, 5:30 PM

For content marketers looking to scale their content volume, outsourcing comes as a natural idea. But for a freelancer or an agency to reflect your brand, your tone or even simply your expertise, it takes some effort which Rebecca Lieb gives a great check-list for in this blog post. 


One thing that certainly changed over the past few years is that new content marketplaces such as Scripted or ExpressWriters simplified the matchmaking between companies and writing talents. 


But even so, having a great writer or designer for your blog or your infographic is just the beginning of the process. We will probably share our own experience on this in greater detail in a follow-up post but outsourcing still takes work: creating a brief, editing, sending feedback and iterating content is not to be neglected. 


So what should you look for when engaging a content agency? Here's her list of criteria.

8 Design Trends for 2015 #infographic | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
2014 was great for design with some awesome new ideas taking foot. But we want every year to be better, including 2015. We had some personal favorites from 2014 which included beautiful photography being used extensively, interactive content experiences for storytelling, as well as awesome typography that was big, bold and was the centerpiece of the design. In 2015 we boldly predict that Magical Realism and Cinema-graphs will take center stage in a lot of projects. Cinema-graphs have been around

Always good to know what is trending in design. Sometimes you need to understand it to help someone look relevant and current, other times so that you can intentionally avoid trends.

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students.  When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways.  It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.
