Don’t Just Say It, Display It: Visually Enhance Your Professional Story on your LinkedIn Profile [SLIDESHOW]

Udi Milo, Linkedin – Blog
Posted by @fgomezcordoba

There are hundreds of ways for us to express ourselves in our daily lives. From the clothes we wear to the words we choose to use, the pictures we share and the music we play — the possibilities are endless.

This is equally important in the professional context, as no two professionals are alike. For the first time, you will now have the ability to showcase your unique professional story using rich, visual content on your LinkedIn profile. This means you can illustrate your greatest achievements in the form of stunning images, compelling videos, innovative presentations and more. From the analyst who makes annual predictions on tech trends to the 3D animator who is looking to fund a new short film, the opportunities are limitless for how professionals can now use the LinkedIn profile to help showcase these unique stories in a visual way.

To begin sharing your achievements and creations on your profile, simply select “edit” on your profile then follow the prompts in your “Summary,” “Experience” and “Education” sections. Other members can also “like” or comment on what you’ve posted.

Need a little inspiration? Here are a just few examples to help inspire you as you start exploring this new way to showcase your career and work.

This is just a glimpse of what’s possible. The ability to add your visual content to your profile will begin rolling out to members in English speaking countries today. We look forward to finding new ways to bring this type of rich media across your LinkedIn experience. Stay tuned, there’s more to come.

In the meantime, we look forward to seeing how you choose to display your professional story on your profile.

SafeFrame – thnxz @iab

The SafeFrame 1.0 technology is a managed API-enabled iframe that opens a line of communication between the publisher page content and the iframe-contained external content, such as ads. Because of this line of communication, content served into a SafeFrame is afforded data collection and rich interaction, such as ad expansion, that is unavailable in a standard iframe.

To avoid disruptive ad behavior and the potential security risks of serving ads inline with the page, publishers may choose to have ad content served into an iframe.

An iframe is a sort of mini HTML page within the publisher-hosted page. Using the iframe, ad content is sequestered within the boundaries of the iframe and unable to access any information about the page where it is served. Without access to page content, ad content within the iframe cannot expand, interact dynamically with site visitors, or collect any data necessary in determining ad effectiveness.

The iframe solution protects the publisher, but it also limits ad capabilities and decreases the value of inventory that is restricted to iframes.

SafeFrame’s API-enabled iframe opens a line of communication between webpage code and the ad content in a controlled and transparent way. This communication allows for rich interaction while protecting the publisher’s page from undetected changes that might otherwise damage page integrity.
Some key benefits of SafeFrame for digital advertising include:

via MediaPost | Engage:Affluent

In my world, we think a lot about reaching affluent audiences with targeted rich media. Of course, rich media isn’t the only way to reach luxury buyers – search engine marketing is also incredibly effective and complimentary to the rich media experience. Since search is extending well beyond the desktop, brands now have to think about targeting audiences by device as well as by keyword phrase.

To talk more about this, I’ve invited my friends at Morpheus Media, who’ve just completed a study on tablet search behavior across five luxury brands, to join me here. Basheer Bergus, Paid Search
Strategist at Morpheus, shares what they’ve learned…

IAB: A Global Network


Competition for consumers’ hearts and minds is no longer bounded by geographic frontiers – digital marketing, news, entertainment, and content are all global.
