Facebook? I Don’t Care! – via @NoupeMag / noupe.com

The Maple Kind is a website with a distinct claim that reads “Where infographics meet comics and bullshit!” What urges its creators is to make you chuckle. This sure does sound much simpler than it is, but it definitely implies, how the following infoographic shall be read. Therein, the Maple Kind argues, why we need a new button on Facebook (a few more than one more, in fact). This new button shall be named ” I Don’t Care” and is bound to be the most widely used expression on Facebook, once it has been instated. Though the infographic in fact made me chuckle, The Maple Kind does not follow a far-fetched approach. Take a look at your own use of Facebook. What would you use more often? Like or I Don’t Care? I know what I would do, but I don’t see Facebook as anything of value for modern society anyway…

Web Designing from Evolution to Revolution [Infographic]


Via inspiredm.com
Here’s a nice infographic I came across today, released by Brush Lovers, fine curators of quality photoshop brushes, styles and patterns.

The term “web design” implies a great range of activities such as website planning, website creation, modeling, matching the right elements (fonts, banners, etc), coding, and arranging all pages in such a way that the end result will be a user-friendly and easy-to-use site. This infographic follows the journey of webdesign from its inception to the present days. Enjoy!

How to Optimize Contact Forms for Conversions


by NEIL PATEL

Contact forms are something that we all have on our sites, but it is something we don’t give much time and attention to. I know I used to think very little of them until I boosted my conversion rate on NeilPatel.com by 26% just from removing 1 form field.

I know a 26% boost in conversions doesn’t seem too big, but it will impact the site’s revenue well into the 6 figures each year.

For that very reason, I thought it would be fun to create an infographic that not only explains how you can boost your conversions by modifying your form fields, but also shows you the results well known companies achieved through a/b testing their forms.

The Engagement Marketing Cycle


See on Scoop.itGabriel Catalano human being | #INperfeccion® a way to find new insight & perspectives

Engagement marketing refers to the marketing strategy of directly involving the customers in a relationship with the brand.

For small and medium businesses, engagement marketing is especially important, as so much of their business comes from repeat customers and word-of-mouth referrals.

The new book, written by Constant Contact CEO Gail F. Goodman, centres around the Engagement Marketing Cycle, a three-step approach to driving word-of-mouth referrals and turning them into socially visible, public endorsements that bring new customers to a SME’s door:

In Chapter 1 of Gail outlines The Engagement Marketing Cycle.

What is the Engagement Marketing Cycle? It’s 3 steps to help you get repeat business.

“…need for social producers” | lgmsocialmedia.es


 

I can’t be the only one to notice this…infographics, “viral” videos, Like and Retweet campaigns, they all seem to be trying a bit too hard lately. For example, most infographics I see today are no more than visual press releases with graphical elements tied to information…and then more information…but wait, then more information. If this was just about visualizing scrolls of information, then anyone using free infographic generating tools and a list of interesting data points could make pinteresting graphics. The key is to think less about the packaging and more about the story you want to tell. But even more importantly, it’s time to put the social in social media and craft the story you want people to talk about and share.

It’s not every day that I focus on social media tactics. However, I’m sharing this post to address a growing concern among social media and digital strategists and those to whom they report as to why their content performs at lackluster levels. Much of what we see in our news feeds and social streams is adequate but not yet representative of what’s possible. However, if creative professionals and brands overall do not understand what it takes to make content or campaigns engaging, optimism and support for experimentation fades and as such, budgets dwindle.

Rebecca Lieb, my colleague at Altimeter Group, tracks digital advertising and media. Along with Jeremiah Owyang, they published a new report on the integration of Paid, Earned, and Owned Media. She shared with me the importance of not only shareability, but also integration into an overall content strategy, “A common content marketing misapprehension is that it equals social media. Content production is tactical. Its desired result, good content, must be informed with strategies and goals related to customer experience, journeys, sharability and its correlation and integration with both paid and earned media.”

20+ Tools To Create Your Own Infographics


hongkiat.com

A picture is worth a thousand words – based on this, infographics would carry hundreds of thousands of words, yet if you let a reader choose between a full-length 1000-word article and an infographic that needs a few scroll-downs, they’d probably prefer absorbing information straight from the infographic. What’s not to like? Colored charts and illustrations deliver connections better than tables and figures and as users spend time looking back and forth the full infographic, they stay on the site longer. Plus, readers who like what they see are more likely to share visual guides more than articles.

While not everyone can make infographics from scratch, there are tools available on the Web that will help you create your very own infographics. In this article, we’re listing more than 20 such options to help you get your messages across to your readers, visually.Read Also: The Infographic Revolution: Where Do We Go From Here?

How Are Healthcare Professionals Using Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC]


By Shea Bennett | mediabistro.com

Did you know that a recent study of 1,229 U.S. hospitals revealed that 814 had Twitter accounts?

That sounds pretty impressive, but it placed Twitter just third in the survey amongst the major social networks. Surprisingly, Foursquare (946 accounts) bagged the second spot, with Facebook (1068 Pages) comfortably leading the way.

The evolution of social media amongst healthcare professionals has been driven by a greater need for transparency, and a 2012 consumer poll revealed that 54 percent of patients are comfortable with their medical providers seeking advice from online communities to help better treat their conditions. Less than one in ten stated that they were “very uncomfortable” with the idea.

This, and other data, can be found in this infographic which takes a closer look at how healthcare pros are using social media.
