The Rise of Visual Social Media

The Rise of Visual Social Media

Karen Webber, head of Marketing Communications at Axonn Media, the UK’s leading content marketing agency, has been noticing changes in content marketing and how users have become more and more used to creative visuals and social media. Take a look at what she has to say.

Audiences have never been as information-hungry as they are today, but competition for their attention online is rife. Our research found nearly nine in ten businesses market with content, and firms need to provide value in order to stand out. Increasingly, this means including great, creative visuals, such as infographics and videos, into content strategies.

In your textbook “Strategic Marketing” you describe classic marketing instruments and methods. What would you say is the main element that has changed in how marketing is approached in the past 10 years? 

I think the biggest change to how marketing is approached in the last ten years is the continued evolution of branding as a central tenet to strategy, specifically the realisation that customers can now talk with each other very easily using a variety of digital platforms and as such they co-create value with the narratives they share between each other alongside the narratives created by the brand owners.

This places much more emphasis on an understanding of customers’ needs and on the speed with which brands need to react to them and their comments, it also allows for the development of new products to be cooperative – the use of crowd sourcing for development, for flash mobs in marketing communications etc. are good examples on the way this is trending.

7 key reasons you need Social Media and Enterprise Marketing

This article is based on the free eBook "Social Media And Business Intelligence" This article is based on the free eBook “Social Media And Business Intelligence”

Today, Social media is part of the business ecosystem, not separate or autonomous. The question is less of implementation and has more to do with integration into existing business processes.  Beyond that, it has the power to change business in fundamental ways. It is this last point that leads many to think that social media is: new and its own autonomous entity.

First of all, social media is simply the current iteration of the Internet, with user generated content, semantic storage, APIs and far improved parseability via XML/JSON and the community of users as an asset.

Social Media allows a new cultural infrastructure that is more responsive to current and potential customer behaviors. Because this new social internet is becoming so interlinked with the business process, a better term is Enterprise Social Marketing.

Enterprise Social Marketing technologies have rapidly matured and can provide significant value, efficiencies and insight. More compelling is that these tools are giving competitors a cost, authenticity and reach advantage. Let’s list the reasons you need to implement an Enterprise Social Marketing solution.  (more…)
