One of our top Prezi designers, Meaghan Hendricks, knows a thing or two about picking the right visuals. Her advice: "You want your visuals to enhance what you are saying, not distract from your message. Using powerful images that provoke emotion will help your audience understand and remember your presentation."

How to Generate More Leads? Try These 7 Top Ideas | The Twinkie Awards | Scoop.it
It takes more than just a fancy name and awesome services/products to develop the kind of lead generation required to skyrocket your brand as the next billion-dollar company. With traditional cold-calling running out of style and a push for inbound marketing on the rise for the past decade or so, it’s all come down to content capable of bringing in leads.

Not every brand has an access to the same kind of content, and even then, not all forms of content will be entirely successful. You want to be able to implement the kind of content that not only performs well, but consistently.

Today, we’ve rounded up some of the best lead generation ideas available out there that you could integrate into your marketing strategy; seven to be exact. Several of them you might be familiar with already, but there just may be a few that you might not have ever considered before.

Let’s dive right in.

How to Whistle While You Work

How to Whistle While You Work | The Twinkie Awards | Scoop.it

I like being happy. I like it so much that I’ve made more than a few difficult career decisions in order to avoid things that make me unhappy — things like working with people who treat me badly, long days trotting after carrots that always seem to hang just out of reach, and countless hours on planes, trains, and buses. Each “I would prefer not to” came at a professional and financial cost. But, hey, I figured, I’ve only got one life.

So you can imagine the dismay I felt upon reading The Happiness Track: How to Apply the Science of Happiness to Accelerate Your Success (Harper One, 2016), by Emma Seppälä. In it, Seppälä, the science director of Stanford School of Medicine’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education, argues that the pursuit of happiness is actually a key to achieving professional success — not an obstacle to it.

Unlike much of the literature about happiness at work, The Happiness Track doesn’t approach its subject from an organizational perspective. There are no free lunches on offer. Instead, Seppälä focuses on six personal “strategies for attaining happiness and fulfillment [that] may, in fact, be the key to thriving professionally.” If you’re familiar with the discipline of Positive Psychology, it’s likely that you’ll have run across these ideas before: be in the moment; nurture your resilience; manage your energy; access your creativity; be good to yourself; be compassionate.

Developing a Content-marketing Editorial Calendar for Ecommerce

Developing a Content-marketing Editorial Calendar for Ecommerce | The Twinkie Awards | Scoop.it

A content-marketing editorial calendar is simply a list of what content your ecommerce business will publish. It includes where that content will be published and promoted and when it will be published, republished, or promoted.


 


The process of developing an editorial calendar for your blog, social media posts, and videos will help to make your content more successful and your company’s execution better. But the magic, if you will, is not in the list itself, but in the creation process.


 


The act of creating a content-marketing editorial calendar, as described in six steps below, requires you to focus on your content strategy. Ask yourself how you will implement that content strategy and what your content should achieve for your business.


 


This focus and planning is really what leads to success. After that, you simply need to execute the plan and measure the results.

Five Carousel Ad Examples to Inspire Your Marketing | The Twinkie Awards | Scoop.it
For those of us old enough to remember Sears, Delia's, and L.L. Bean direct-mail catalogs, the new carousel ad format found on Facebook and Instagram may look familiar.

Built from multiple images and copy combinations, carousel ads act as mini online product catalogs. Potential shoppers scroll through them on desktop or mobile, and click to purchase when the mood strikes. (Scrolling and clicking is much quicker than tearing out and mailing the order form of a print publication.)
