It explores and dissects why we, humans, behave the way we behave, what we do and the things we think and believe. The results are, more often than not, fascinating. Twitter, too, needs no introduction, at least to readers of this blog.

From the impact of images and video on Facebook and Twitter to the new crop of media-centric social platforms like Instagram and Pinterest, it’s clear that inbound marketers need to be turning out great visual content. I recently spent some time collecting a large Instagram database and analyzing it to identify the characteristics that make images work (or not work). Be sure to come see me present my all new edition of The Science of Social Media next week in Boston at INBOUND.

Visual Content Marketing Strategy eBook #CMWorld TED Talk Takeaways: 8 Ways to Hook Your Audience “You will live 7.5 minutes longer than you would have otherwise, just because you watched this talk.” This was the claim that video game designer Jane McGonigal presented to the crowd during her June 2012 TED talk. As the camera panned over the members of the audience, their faces showed universal skepticism: Was this lady serious? There was something else interesting about that crowd. Despite their doubtful visages, everyone in the audience was drawn in by McGonigal’s words. No one was checking their email, talking to their neighbor or looking at the camera circling in front of them; all eyes were fixated on the (potentially crazy) speaker. Great hooks, like McGonigal’s provocative opening statement, get audiences on the edge of their seats and give them a sense of what’s coming. Starting your presentation in an unorthodox way provides your audience with a much-needed breath of fresh air. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

An Introvert's Guide to Networking Every week, I get invited to another “must attend” business event sure to be full of important people who could affect my business. I know I should go, but it’s a chore. All too often, I end up standing in a corner clinging to the one person I know, feeling guilty that I’m not taking advantage of the situation.

That’s me. But I recognize the importance of this type of activity, so I stick to it — primarily because a few chance encounters at events have led to relationships that have made all the difference in my business. Have short conversations with lots of people. I find it difficult to form deep connections at events. Focus on what you’re good at. Although I find large informal groups a challenge, I know that I perform well in formal presentation settings or one-on-one conversations.
