Throughout my career, long-form content has always been an important part of my marketing strategy. And most of the radically successful entrepreneurs I know also use long-form content. Coincidence? I don’t think so.


I know what you’re thinking: “But how can I write these humongous articles? I don’t even know where to start.”


If you have an idea for an article in mind, that’s enough to get started. All you need is an idea, some time, and good Googling skills.

Visuals are the currency of sharing on social media. Text-only updates can only convey so much and get so far. Here are 3 stats that prove the worth of creating graphics.

First, 66% of all social media posts are or include images.

Second, forget native visual platforms, like Instagram and Pinterest, that allow photo sharing. In 2013, Facebook became the largest photo sharing website, with its users uploading 350 million photos every day.

Third, use of images was rated as the most important social media optimization tactic, in a 2014 survey by Adobe and Software Advice.

And, it’s not just limited to social media…Content with relevant visuals also gets 94% more views than content without. Even social media platforms now focus on images in their redesigns....

2017 is the year we return to the organic roots and we will see a return to the natural. In terms of colors, the start has been given by Pantone (as every year, in fact), who has crowned the color for 2017 as Greenery, based on it’s meaning of new beginning, freshness and environmentalism. Manifesting as a “fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring”, Greenery envelops the notion of breathing, reinvigorating and appreciating the great outdoors.

Are you ready for the biggest information explosion in history?

 

If you don’t know by now, the Internet of Things (IoT) is going to take the world by storm in the coming years. A system of interconnected physical devices, IoT will enable humans, animals and man-made objects to transmit data over a network through biochip implants, built-in sensors or any other thing that can be assigned an IP address.

 

This means that we will soon have more real-time data at our disposal than ever before. In fact, the amount of information in the universe is expected to grow 10-fold by 2020.

 

What are we to do with so much information? The simple answer is that we have to get better at visualizing information in the form of data visualizations and infographics....
