The Social Media Dimensions Blueprint (Infographic)

The Social Media Dimensions Blueprint (Infographic) | Writing for Social Media | Scoop.it

Like all new technology, social media changes fast.

Just trying to keep your head around all of the different platforms, how to approach them and, of course, how to design for them can be a full time job.

Social media has proven itself as a crucial component of a brand’s marketing mix, but with the many different platforms, it can be very difficult to put forth a consistent brand image online.

The [Ridiculously Exhausitive] Social Media Design Blueprint features all of the major design dimensions for all of the major platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIN, YouTube, Pinterest and the most recent entry, Instagram.

RPA's new VP and director of creative social media, J Barbush, seeks passionate everyday brand fans and stories.


Hey -- here's a company doing brand storytelling the right way! What a great article -- complete with examples and a video. The company? Honda!


What are they doing right?

Listening first Finding authentic customer stories that have a connection to Honda Connecting with those customers and making them feel comfortable in sharing their story Sharing those customer stories but NOT as a campaign Recognizing that brand storytelling is iterative and evolves over time


The way they are doing these steps creates engagement. And I loved the story and the video.

Effective storytelling for business

Effective storytelling for business | Writing for Social Media | Scoop.it

As content takes its rightful place at the forefront of marketing, I'm seeing many marketers fail at basic storytelling.


Marketers are ineffective when they use the classic "customer testimonial" format and pop that onto their blog or make it into a video. "Here’s our product. It is great. Here are customers who say it is great. Now buy some of our product." This just doesn't hold people's attention.


How interesting would a book or movie be were it to have this plot?:
Boy meets girl.
They fall in love.
They get married.


That's what most people do with their business writing.


Effective storytelling

The best stories drip with conflict. They have a hero and sometimes a villain. There is a story arc. As a writing teacher once told me: "Writing without conflict is propaganda."

Two Pens's insight:

All business have conflict: lack of sales, poor service, employee malaise... 

The issue is often that management doesn't want to talk about the negative but you have to have a hellish situation in order to make a story compelling.
