Key Findings on How Marketers Optimize Social Content by Douglas Karr on Marketing Technology Blog
Software Advice partnered with Adobe to create the first-ever Social Media Content Optimization Survey. Key findings include:+
Most marketers (84 percent) routinely post on at least three social media networks, with 70 percent posting at least once a day.+Marketers most commonly cited the use of visual content, hashtags and usernames as important tactics for optimizing social media content.+Over half (57 percent) use software tools to manage posting, and these respondents experienced less difficulty optimizing their social content.+
Our survey suggests that the vast majority of marketers are posting frequently across at least three or four social channels and are attempting to use specific tactics to increase brand awareness and (ideally) generate quality leads. Most marketers (70 percent) said they post content on social media outlets at least once a day, with 19 percent saying they post more than three times daily. But our source, Liz Strauss, believes that many of them are posting without a clear goal and without a true understanding of what can be accomplished on any particular social channel.

And the data may support that claim. For instance, Liz argues that it’s backwards that more marketers prioritized visual content than prioritized the identification and targeting of specific sub-audiences. As she puts it, if you don’t know who your content is built for, then you’re not going to send them the right kinds of signals. And this suggests a troubling lack of understanding about basic strategic principles required to achieve real, measurable results through social media. Here’s a breakdown of findings:+
Elbamovie is an innovative transmedia territorial storytelling project for experiential tourist promotion of the island of Elba.
It is based on four elements that characterise the experience:
• Storytelling set between the past and the present, permitting the audience to live a Napoleonic experience in a modern setting.
• Suspension between reality and fiction, which enables visitors to Elba to see the places where the film was made and enjoy all the experiential elements included in the narration that can be discovered on the island. The characters in Elbamovie are imaginary, but their life experiences and friends are very real.
• The depth and variety of the transmedia storytelling experience, which can be lived uninterruptedly on various media and in the territory of Elba.
• The evolution of the narration project ,which develops like a living organism through the nutrition supplied by the contribution of the audience.
