Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, November 9, 2013 9:57 AM

Of these 8 very deadly sins the most deadly in my experience is the first one. When customers don't know where you want them to go and what you want them to do or where they came from (within you site) they get confused. Confused customers do many things buying is never one of them.

Creating Engaging & Sharable Graphics

Creating Engaging & Sharable Graphics | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

When it comes to creating graphics for visual social networks, there are a few key ideas you should keep in mind to increase your reach and engagement. Your audience wants to be educated. They want to be inspired.

 

Of course, depending on the network in which you are promoting your content, the visual itself may be the entire piece of content, thus making it equally as important as the content it contains. 

This is largely the case when it comes to social networks like Instagram, Pinterest and Vine. While all three allow for the option to link to more information in the comments, caption or description sections, the visual is the content for all intents and purposes since you can’t depend on someone clicking for more information.

My favorite quote here is' I provide the tools, its up to you what you do with them'. This video certainly had me rethinking PowerPoint. Clearly I need to learn to use it better. This was a very skillful presentation that was created only using PowerPoint.

Why Is Facebook Blue? The Science Behind Colors In Marketing | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

There are some amazing examples of how colors actually affect our purchasing decisions. After all, sight is the strongest developed sense in most human beings. It’s only natural that 90% of an assessment for trying out a product is made by color alone.


So how do colors really affect us, and what is the science of colors in marketing, really? As we strive to make improvements to online products, studying this phenomenon is key. Find some of the latest, most interesting research on the subject at the article link...

Thanks for sharing. I am curious if green equals the idea of wealth in all countries or if that is only in countries with green currency? That would be an interesting research topic if it hasn't been done yet.

It is my hope that many share and see and follow the advice given by authors such as Alex Rister in cleaning up presentations and making the message receiver's job much easier. Forget the Rule of 6s and stop handing out your presentations before you read the PowerPoint slides words-for-word.
