Are You a Poor Communicator? Stop the Damage and Improve Relationships | UniqCommunicationsHub | Scoop.it

"Communication – the human connection – is the key to personal and career success."
– Paul J. Meyer

 

Most of us engage in communication every day. Most of us also know that communicating with others can be a difficult and frustrating experience.

 

There are times when we mean well, but because of the way we say what we say, our message is misunderstood, with unintended and undesirable consequences.

 

Below are four of the most common mistakes we can make in interpersonal communication, which often lead to conflict and worsening of relationships.

 

The good news is that once we become aware of these poor habits, we can change the way we communicate, resulting in improved relationships. This article focuses mainly on recognizing ineffective communication.

 

For tips on effective communication, see links to resources posted below.

5 Social Media Content Marketing Trends to Watch Heading Into 2018 | UniqCommunicationsHub | Scoop.it

Just as traditional publishing advanced decades ago, digital marketing is following the same trajectory today. The only difference is the rate at which things are changing, and the fact that many digital brands forget to be human.

It doesn’t matter if you’re writing on stone or using augmented reality to get your message across: It must be interesting and relevant to motivate a reaction from the end-user.

Creating and distributing compelling content through social media is especially important from a branding perspective. The trick to the future of social media content marketing is using modern approaches at being human.

Here are five social media content marketing trends to watch heading into 2018...

Be on the lookout for the social media popularity trend to continue in 2018. Marketing is becoming very personal and centered around social media influencers. The platforms are the distribution mechanisms that allow wide visibility, and can be used narrowly to reach only a specific segment of the market. Take a look at the article...

Advertising in the 1950s Had No Chill | Ad Trends | Roundpeg

Advertising in the 1950s Had No Chill | Ad Trends | Roundpeg | UniqCommunicationsHub | Scoop.it

The history of American advertising has always fascinated me. It's amazing to see how much the visual aesthetic evolved as a result of the changing times.


Each decade had it’s own unique style of advertising, but one period of time really stands in stark contrast to what we’re accustomed to today. The 1950s were sometimes referred to as “the advertiser’s dream decade.” With the end of the war came a new desire for Americans to spend money. The television was now a common household staple and the advertising opportunities seemed endless.


It all sounds perfect, right? The great American dream! The economy was booming and everything was all jukeboxes and wholesome family dinners.Well, not so fast.


The golden era of advertising would cause some pretty massive controversies today. The sexism of 1950s advertising is infamous, and for good reason. Sure, we have plenty of offensive ads today, but few hold a candle to the callous ads of the “good ‘ol days.”...

This Lunar New Year, we move into the Year of the Rooster. But what does this mean?

The rooster is one of the 12 animals of the zodiac.. In Chinese and other East Asian traditions, each year is characterized by an animal: most commonly the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. Legend says that this is the order the animals crossed the finish line in a great race held by the Jade Emperor.

The Goldfish Conundrum: How to Create Content for Short Attention Spans | HubSpot

The Goldfish Conundrum: How to Create Content for Short Attention Spans | HubSpot | UniqCommunicationsHub | Scoop.it

The creation of mobile devices has made multitasking close to ubiquitous in the modern world. Between social media, live streaming, and digital news, it’s hard to imagine a time of day when we aren’t tempted to look at a screen while we’re doing something else at the same time.


Because of this phenomenon, it should come to no surprise that the average human attention span has fallen to just eight seconds -- shorter than that of a goldfish.


What’s more, 59% of people share articles on Twitter without even reading them, and more than half of all pageviews are under a minute in length. It’s clear that people aren’t reading as much as they used to, and content creators need to adapt their strategy to that reality.


In this post, we’ll discuss strategies and resources marketers can use to create content that will generate clicks, shares, and most importantly, more readers....

The next 12 months, the Year of the Fire Rooster, will not be an easy one for President Donald Trump, at least according to a noted Chinese astrologer.

“The easiest way for Western people to be lucky or make a lot of money would be to follow Trump’s clothing style and the layout and decoration of his office.”

63 Web Design Terms Every Marketer Should Know | UniqCommunicationsHub | Scoop.it

When you're new to marketing, especially on a small team, you might have to do a lot of things at a moment's notice. And when it comes to things like blogging and social media, sure, you've got this. But soon enough, you're being pulled onto design projects. One day you're mocking up an infographic; the next, you're designing an ebook. You feel woefully unprepared -- and that design vocabulary? It can feel like a foreign language.


Sound familiar?


We've been there -- and we know we're not the only marketers who have, at some point, needed to become fluent in this vocabulary. So we decided to share a larger glossary, to help us all step up our game a bit. By no means is this the be-all-end-all of design terminology, so feel free to add your definitions in the comments as well. Here's what we have, organized alphabetically....
