Mobiilikuvaus nostaa viestintäsi uudelle tasolle

Mobiilikuvaus nostaa viestintäsi uudelle tasolle | Working With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Kuinka mobiilikuvaus ja visuaalisempi viestintä auttavat menestymään verkossa? Sosiaalisessa mediassa hyvä kuva on paras keino erottua päivitysvirrasta.

 

Tiivistetysti haluamme nähdä kuvia, joissa on tarinaa ja tunnetta. Arkikuvakin toimii somessa hyvin, jos siihen liittyy napakka tarina tai nokkela 140 merkin kiteytys. Kuva jää elämään etenkin silloin, kun se on osa isompaa kokonaisuutta. Päivityksestä toiseen tunnistettava tyyli, mieleen jäävä visuaalinen linja ja kuvakerronta ovat tapoja erottua verkossa meitä ympäröivästä visuaalisesta metelistä. Ylipäätään isot ideat kantavat.

How To Turn One Presentation Into A Million Connections

How To Turn One Presentation Into A Million Connections | Working With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Working with my clients on their personal branding, I’ve noticed one common misconception. Too many executives believe their real-world personal branding activities are unrelated to the virtual world of digital branding. This mentality is not only extremely inefficient; it can also lead to mixed messages about your brand. To maximize the value of your personal branding efforts, your real-world activities should be synced with your social media actions.  This creates powerful synergies and can amplify your message for an audience of millions.

The 7 Principles Of The Future Employee

The 7 Principles Of The Future Employee | Working With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

 

It’s safe to say that the employee of tomorrow is not the same person as the employee of yesterday. The five trends shaping the future of work helped make sure of that fact. A few weeks ago I also shared another visual called The Evolution of the Employee which compares employees of the past and future. Oftentimes when I speak at conferences or visit with companies they ask me how the way we work is changing and so that prompted me to put together something called the 7 Principles of the Future Employee. The best way to think about this is as the 7 core ways that employees of the future will work. These are detailed in my latest book on the future of work but a brief summary of these 7 Principles can be found below.

Adobe Builds Marketplace To Grow Earning Potential For Creative Workers And Products

Adobe Builds Marketplace To Grow Earning Potential For Creative Workers And Products | Working With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it
If Adobe's experiment works, it could lead the way for the transformation of other sectors of the economy. The big story here is that Adobe is in a unique position to have a customer base in the growing millions of professionals who are both the creators and consumers of digital goods and services. By being able to act on both the supply and demand sides of this audience, Wadhwani thinks the company can build “the creative version of the sharing economy.”Before we all start singing “Kumbaya,” let’s confront the hard facts. Digital distribution of content has created massive new markets, but also pushed the unit price of products and services low—and this trend will continue.

What Happens to Society When Robots Replace Workers?

What Happens to Society When Robots Replace Workers? | Working With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

The technologies of the past, by replacing human muscle, increased the value of human effort – and in the process drove rapid economic progress. Those of the future, by substituting for man’s senses and brain, will accelerate that process – but at the risk of creating millions of citizens who are simply unable to contribute economically, and with greater damage to an already declining middle class.

Tongal, eLance, and Topcoder Will Change How You Compete

Tongal, eLance, and Topcoder Will Change How You Compete | Working With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Who will be your next competitive threat? Will it be an established firm that ups their game, a young upstart company that bursts onto to scene, or a competitor from a different industry all together? What if your challenger isn’t a traditional organization at all, but instead a “talent platform” that doesn’t actually have employees? Talent platforms—such as Mechanical Turk, eLance, Topcoder, and Tongal—organize free agents and offer new ways to get work done. They’ve come on to the scene by stealth, often as seemingly innocuous job boards for temporary workers, but they’re turning into much more than that. They can now pose a real threat to established organizations.
