Succeeding online today is all about attracting the attention of people. However, this is not a very easy thing to do since there is so much content out there today. Even in your particular industry in niche you probably have hundreds or even thousands of competitors online. Among the best ways to attract attention online is by using Twitter. A good Twitter strategy can help people notice you and improve awareness about your brand.
It’s a well-known fact that people are visual.
They like things that attract their eyes. Color, images, movement, all these things bring them in and make them stay and brings them back.
So why do so many business bloggers forget this little tidbit? Why are their sites filled with words and empty of color, photos or images?
The new big thing in social media, Pinterest is all about the pictures. This growing monster is something all businesses should keep an eye on and utilize as soon as possible.
Everyone can see everything on Pinterest, which makes it ripe for the picking. All you need is one great image and people will come flocking, people will click on the link embedded in the image and end up at your website or blog.
Of course, the image will need something to back it up or it is sort of pointless, but still. The idea is there.

Why is it that between 25% and 50% of people report feeling overwhelmed or burned out at work?
It’s not just the number of hours we’re working, but also the fact that we spend too many continuous hours juggling too many things at the same time.
What we’ve lost, above all, are stopping points, finish lines and boundaries. Technology has blurred them beyond recognition. Wherever we go, our work follows us, on our digital devices, ever insistent and intrusive. It’s like an itch we can’t resist scratching, even though scratching invariably makes it worse.
Tell the truth: Do you answer email during conference calls (and sometimes even during calls with one other person)? Do you bring your laptop to meetings and then pretend you’re taking notes while you surf the net? Do you eat lunch at your desk? Do you make calls while you’re driving, and even send the occasional text, even though you know you shouldn’t? Seguir leyendo “The Magic of Doing One Thing at a Time”

Death is a subject that few are comfortable with. Yet, making death your best friend can enhance your life in ways you might not otherwise imagine.
“Death is the only wise adviser that we have. Whenever you feel, as you always do, that everything is going wrong and you’re about to be annihilated, turn to your death and ask if that is so. Your death will tell you that you’re wrong; that nothing really matters outside its touch. Your death will tell you, ‘I haven’t touched you yet….In a world where death is the hunter, my friend, there is no time for regrets or doubts. There is only time for decisions.” Seguir leyendo “Need Some Great Advice? Ask Death”
They started out as a social media experiment and then suddenly everyone wanted a piece.
Today, so many infographics have gone viral that it’s practically impossible to ignore them. You’ll find them tweeted by your friends who want to share an interesting new find, promoted by companies eager to display their growth trends and utilized by even the White House for its progress reports.
No matter what you are searching for online, whether employment statistics or endangered animals, you are sure to find an infographic for it. If you, miraculously, aren’t able to recall any that you have seen, take a look at this list of the 10 best infographics of 2011 via Nowsourcing to catch up.
Infographics are useful because they turn historically lengthy and tedious bulks of data in to something that’s much more interesting: a visual.
As a society heading into the new decade, we want to read less and see more. While this doesn’t bode too well for book publishers, it’s opened a whole new creative area for designers.
An increasing number of companies and clients are recognizing the benefits of infographics and want their data jazzed up and dressed for the prom. They know that their assiduously compiled information has a far better chance of being read, appreciated, shared and widely circulated if it looks less like an annual report and more like the next big meme. And if you aren’t convinced yet, here’s an infographic on why you should use infographics.
While the graphics used in infographics have become more eye-catching and sophisticated, they are not too different in purpose from the charts and graphs we used to make in high school. After all, the objective is still to present data in a more visually engaging and accessible way.
However, print and web designers are having a hard time transferring their existing skills to infographics because, as the many aspiring infographics designers will tell you, designing good infographics isn’t as simple as it looks. Sure, you still need the same essential aesthetic and technical skills but you should also be able to effectively translate data into visuals. Most importantly, you need to ensure that the infographic acts as an informative tool and not as a visual distraction.

When it comes to getting more traffic, attention and higher rankings, there is one concept that is starting to have a huge impact on those goals…
Increasing the number of shares your content gets across social media.
That means if you write a post that gets 500 tweets, 100 likes and 40 +1s…and you do that consistently…your bound to grow your traffic and grow your search engine rankings.
So how do you get people to share you content across the social web? Here are 10:
Never force people to hunt down your social sharing buttons. Instead, make them obvious.
For instance, I use a social sharing plug in that allows my buttons to scroll up and down the post as people scroll through it:
The other place to include buttons is at the end of the article.
Most of your readers won’t read your content and think “I want to share this.” That’s why you have to encourage them to share it.
Unfortunately, too many people simply drop the social sharing bar plug in at the end of the post and then hope people will use it.
You have to tell them to use it!
Here are some other tips on encouraging social sharing… Seguir leyendo “10 Ways to Get More Traffic, Attention and Higher Rankings Through Social Sharing”
Our working memory turns out to be much more limited than people generally acknowledge. What do you get when you add ten plus ten? That’s easy. Twenty. Yet you don’t really need working memory for that, the answer is stored in long term memory. What about adding 128 with 287? You can do it, but it takes working memory. Adding up just six digits is quite an effort. What about mutiplying 23 and 56, without paper or a calculator? For most people it’s too much. Your working memory maxes out.
Running a site doesn’t only require Web development skills. Any site where the users can add content and communicate with each other requires a great deal of care and attention if it’s going to be a success.
Increasing user participation on your site is achievable if you aim for the old adage KISS, or keep it simple, stupid. Beyond that, there are a few things you can do to get more people to interact with your site. Here are seven tips to set you on that path.
I’d suggest losing registration altogether if you can. But if your site requires registration, best to make it as simple as possible. A quick click here, a quick click there, and hey presto – one registered user without the barrier of a signup form.
