I really enjoyed this article due to the simplicity of the inforgraphic showcasing the information in a colourful and engaging way. As there are several types of social media such as facebook, twitter and tumblr (blogs) having media stratergy for each one is important. All of them have different communiction features and different target audiences. Kamal has chosen well and agreeing with emma that this really links well with the week 7 lecture topic.

This is a good article as it uses infographics which makes it easier to understand and take in the idea of developing and implementing a media strategy and in this case for social media. The first 4 steps are the basics to developing a strategy and then it expands on it with not great detail but just the quick basic information one needs to know. Although one thing it doesn't mention though is analyzing a market or finding a target market which I beleive helps within the process of developing a strategy, knowing what potential customers to target or what market or segment.

Selina EverHungry Nihalani's curator insight, October 6, 2013 6:23 PM

In today’s market, social media has become an essential factor of building a business strategy. It is very important that we approach and engage customers through social sites. In the beginning of this article, it shows that a successful social media strategy depends on establishing a sound business goal. Goals must be defined clearly to utilize the appropriate social media in achieving the business goal. After the goals are set, it is also important to define the metrics and tactics. This is because these will measure whether the social media efforts are creating consideration and conversions with the target audience. Through this process, companies can evaluate and measure success and failures, and prepare for a better business strategy to succeed in social media.

Infographics- An easier way to get backlinks to your site | Tech & Education | Scoop.it

Infographics are trending on the internet. There are used as a backlink bait by many of the popular brands. It serves as a dual advantage as it benefits both the creater and the user. The creator of the infographics is benefitted by getting a backlink to its website and the user of the infographic has an advantage of displaying visual friendly content on the site.

 

What are Infographics?

Infographics is short form for "Information Graphics". These are image visualization of data or information. It draws inspiration from Pictographs which are used as a picture language. Human mind accepts visual data more accurately and clearly than the raw text data. This concept relies heavily upon the creation of images which are used to convey complex data,graphs,information etc in an easier way before the audience.

Infographics are really useful in getting good backlinks to your website. The best way is to publish an infographic with a code to allow further embedding (The embed code contains the source of the image which is your website). People who visit your website would be able to see the embed link and if they like our picture, they would surely use it on their own website thus providing you a backlink.Moreover, you can even distribute your infographic to hundreds of specialized infographic directories thus increasing your chances of getting backlinks...

10 Ways To Incorporate Storytelling [Elements] In Web Design

10 Ways To Incorporate Storytelling [Elements] In Web Design | Tech & Education | Scoop.it
Sallee design shows how well words and design can work together to tell as story. Design your words effectively to guide your visitors' line of sight and draw them in. Invite them to listen to your story and to enter your site.

 

I like this concise and easy-to-read article about various storytelling elements you can incorporate into your website for greater connection and impact with customers/prospects.

 

In addition to words and images, the author mentions mascots and personality. Then there's parallax scrolling and interactivity. These later two might break a small business' budget but they are still good to know about.

 

Enjoy playing with these ideas and upgrading your website!
