Transmedia & the Future of Filmmaking. Forget 3-D —interactive media is the next wave of entertainment.

Transmedia & the Future of Filmmaking. Forget 3-D —interactive media is the next wave of entertainment. | ThinkinCircles | Scoop.it

Enter the "transmedia" movement. A cinema/digital media hybrid anchored in filmmaking, this new brand of storytelling is defined by works that combine the typical moviegoing experience with more interactive elements, enabled by new media tools.

4 Tips for Effective Multi-Channel Ecommerce

4 Tips for Effective Multi-Channel Ecommerce | ThinkinCircles | Scoop.it

One common pitfall that many online retailers make is the ‘field of dreams’ problem. They put their entire budget and efforts into building a great site but then have little-to-no plan for how to drive traffic to that site.

 

Many retailers put too much focus on one source of traffic like search engine optimization (SEO). While this source of traffic is great because it's high quality and free, there are other channels that ecommerce websites should take advantage of for effective multi-channel ecommerce...
