Visual Storytelling: Creating More Persuasive Presentations. The crowdsourced guide to learning. Who are you writing for? Quantity or Quality? Who are you writing for?
Quantity or Quality? Some people really want a big audience. It shows in everything they do.

I guess they want to sell their books or their consulting or whatever else. I have fallen into that trap many times. I love writing.

As social media becomes less of an afterthought among brands and more of an essential ingredient in the marketing mix, it is increasingly difficult to stand out on these online channels.
There is only so much attention from consumers and customers to go around, and the social streams are overflowing with content in all shapes and sizes. So unless you want to be like the wallflower at the dance, being boring is not an option on social media. There are simply no excuses for not sharing a deep repertoire of content on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and everywhere else your audience is hanging out online. If your customers and prospects are spending time on Pinterest, Vine, SnapChat, YouTube, Tumblr, and Instagram, you need to establish your own solid presence there.

Jane Zantuck, head of marketing, National Gallery of Victoria, credits this success to a digital transformation across the organization following the appointment four years ago of gallery director Tony Ellwood and deputy director Andrew Clark. Over 4,000 photos have been uploaded to Instagram alone since the show opened eight weeks ago. ELDERS REACT TO NETFLIX.
How Beyonce and Bruno Mars Overshadowed Coldplay's Bland Uplift at the Super Bowl Halftime Show. What a perfect Beyoncé song name: “Formation.”
All great pop involves people acting in formation. So does all great change. And while fans scream that Beyoncé’s a “queen” and “goddess,” her core appeal really is as a drill sergeant. With Beyoncé in command, greatness is scalable, achievable, for the collective. Everyone waves their hands to the same beat. But in pop and in politics, “everyone” is a loaded term. The poor guys of Coldplay, meanwhile, actually think they can work solely at the level of the universal. The 15-Second Films Taking Instagram By Storm.
