Content Marketing: The past, present and future of successful marketing. Made famous by John Deere in 1892, content marketing has flourished, with marketers spending around 25% of their budget on content marketing alone in 2012.

10 Awesome Twitter Analytics and Visualization ToolsTwitter Tools and Twitter Tips Blog | Social Media, the 21st Century Digital Tool Kit | Scoop.it

After researching over a thousand Twitter Tools for the Twitter Tools Book I came across many tools that tried to add value by presenting a different way to visualize or analyze your tweets, the people in your network, and the tweets from the people in your network.

 

Many tools tried to add value and failed.  At least they tried.  The following tools, however, stand out in my mind as exceptional or entertaining and I recommend you check them out if you want to analyze and visualize your activity on Twitter....

Three Tips for Effective Content Marketing

Three Tips for Effective Content Marketing | Social Media, the 21st Century Digital Tool Kit | Scoop.it

Guest blogging is still as effective a tool as any to generate visibility and awareness for your brand website and it’s also a slow, yet efficient method to position your brand in comparison to the competition. However, it’s important to remember that you will want the best content to be uploaded to your very own website. In other words, don’t waste your copywriter’s talents on blog posts for other sites. While these may contain valuable links for your back linking profile and will help boost your writers’ authorship prowess, nothing will generate more of a buzz than good, potentially viral content on your very own site.

 

As all top social media marketing agencies know, nowadays it’s becoming easier than ever to get the ball rolling in terms of virality – and it’s all thanks to social media. It’s almost free and it allows you to target your audience through increasingly refined methods. It’s also an excellent venue for potential client support issues that may arise, departing from a particular piece of content....
