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.
We love the Web. Seriously, we do. But sometimes, achieving what you want is a little harder and takes a little longer than you’d really want. It’s for that reason that we’ve put together a list of 27 of the most useful extensions for Google’s Chrome browser.
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.
Following up on my post around the 7 Principles of The Future Employee, I wanted to share another concept which is the 10 Principles of The Future Manager. When it comes to the future of work it’s not just employees that are changing, managers are also having to change the ways in which they lead and in fact are HAVING to become leaders. These are 10 core principles or characteristics that managers will and must possess going forward. This image is taken from my book, The Future of Work.
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.
If you feel like your stuck in a rut, check out these motivational posters by Be Happy. The company believes that "Words are Powerful" and they've put inspirational sentences on everything from posters and t-shirts to cards and mugs. Like Ira Glass's great advice for creatives, these powerful words might just help you see the brighter side of things.
As Be Happy states, "Life isn’t all fun and games, but the cloud always has a silver lining. We’re tired of all things negative in the world. Instead, we want to focus on what’s good, and on giving us the nudge to get even better. We believe that starting your day off with a bit of inspiration prompts you to think about your day, open your mind to details you might not normally notice, and puts you in the path of amazing things."

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.
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.
"It's the Spanish painter and inventor of Cubism to which new Apple employees today pay design homage," Snow notes, referencing the computer giant's internal training program. So what can the master painter teach you about creativity? Snow lays out several lessons, including:
After a long wait, we finally have the future of Android. It was first unveiled as “Android L” in June 2014 before being officially named Lollipop (I was hoping for Licorice but oh well). There are some small changes and some big changes with some entirely new inclusions as well that make Lollipopmore than just a bug fix update; it’s a proper overhaul of the entire operating system. Let’s dive in!
We’ve seen a number of great keyboards for iOS emerge after Apple finally added support for third-party keyboards in iOS 8.
You can get everything from the ever-popular SwiftKey to GIF keyboards or even an auto correcting emoji keyboard. Crimson, however, brings a unique way of typing to the iPhone that builds on the familiar iOS keyboard and improves on it.
Two months ago, we told you that Adobe and Google were hard at work bringing Photoshop to the browser. Essentially, this version would run off of a server, allowing you to use as weak of a machine as you like, since the program isn’t relying at all on your computer’s processing power.
Microsoft hopes to put the kibosh on that with Microsoft Sway, its new presentation app.
Sway lets you drag and drop photos, videos, files from your computer, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, or cloud storage. It works via a web browser or an app for your phone, and the presentation is stored on the web.
Social media was not a part of the business landscape when most boomers and Gen Xers hit their stride. But today, regardless of role, industry or seniority, being social media savvy is a major advantage for both personal branding and for doing your job better.
How does Google do it? How are they so innovative? In my new book BOLD: How to Go Big, Create Wealth and Impact the World (coming out February 3rd, 2015, Simon & Schuster), I team up with my coauthor Steven Kotler to provide a playbook for the exponential entrepreneur. One of the [...]
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.
