Leuk om ideeën te krijgen en te creëren.

Great example of what Prezi can do.

Ian Korman's curator insight, February 3, 2014 3:19 AM

Prezi isn't new but it is still pretty innovative. I recommend using just to stick out from the PowerPoint crowd. You will really stick out if you use it as creatively as they did in this video.

5 Tips to Stay Ahead When Marketing Your Business

5 Tips to Stay Ahead When Marketing Your Business | HE in FE Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it

The current state of media and marketing is constantly changing. And a forward-thinking approach is necessary. Here are 5 tips to stay ahead: 1. Create More Opportunity You have the ability to make useful things faster and better than any corporation. Relying on publicity to get attention is like bungee jumping off a bridge. The adrenaline is groovy, and Cloud 9 is fun. But…then what? Publicity can bring opportunity. But it shouldn’t be your only path. Why? Fame is fleeting. You want to bubble up from the bottom, not float down from the top....

Social Media Marketing and its Current Importance

Social Media Marketing and its Current Importance | HE in FE Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it

When people follow your business pages in Facebook or your account in Twitter, they are also likely to get to visit your company website, and even encourage their friends to visit.

 

That makes social media marketing a very important tool for lead generation. In addition, search engines now give more ranking points to websites that have an upright presence in social media. This is good because most of the traffic that you will get in your website will come from people starting off with search engine queries....

Two Terms Marketers Need for Today's Media Landscape

Two Terms Marketers Need for Today's Media Landscape | HE in FE Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it

The web has made media a complicated, jargon-filled world. Marketers need a way to simplify it....

 

... In the past short while, we have seen a rise in new ways for advertisers to connect with consumers like never before. We're also seeing an increasing amount of media budgets shifting from traditional channels to digital advertising. You can't throw a marketer down a flight of stairs these days without hearing terms like real-time bidding, big data, retargeting and native advertising tumbling off of his tongue. It's beginning to make social media, mobile marketing and plain-old digital advertising seem somewhat antiquated.

 

So, where do you, the business leader, place those ad dollars? Do you spend them with the latest and greatest shiny object? Do you stick to your traditional guns? Do you sprinkle them around in the hopes of hitting the jackpot on the advertising table of roulette? What we need is a framework that helps us transcend the many different ways that consumers are connecting with brands and lets us see the bigger picture....

The Dark Side Of Reputation Management: How It Affects Your Business

The Dark Side Of Reputation Management: How It Affects Your Business | HE in FE Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it

9 Ways to respond to reputation threats online... There's an increasingly dark side to online reputation management A week ago I had no idea the hornets’ nest I’d opened when I wrote about the things to do when your business is disparaged online....

 

... Loaded for bear, my first questions to Ruddie were about the irony of a reputation management company being the focus of unanswered complaints. His responses surprised me. I learned several things that I believe are valuable news and that will even alter some of the advice I’ve been formerly giving to our agency’s clients. My thanks to Ruddie for his contributions to the following points. For example...
