The Most Comprehensive Blog Marketing Infographic You’ll See, Ever

Blog

The word “ever” is a bold word. It means that you’ll never see an infographic that’s this long, this comprehensive, ever the rest of your life. Normally, I would never make such a claim about anything. Babe Ruth’s 60-homer season was never supposed to be broken, either.

However, I can say with confidence that this one will not be beaten. It’s huge. It’s so huge that I had to split it up into four parts to have the images hosted on the site, then decided to just keep it hosted on the source site because it really does need to be seen in all of its glory. Hattip to Venchito Tampon Jr from Digital Philippines for bringing this to us.

22 Content Types to Keep You Blogging

Content

One of the hardest parts about blogging is staying consistent and pumping out enough content to keep your readers coming back for more. It’s a challenge, not just because of the time necessary to stay consistent and abundant, but also because it’s possible to run out of ideas. Don’t get me wrong – there’s not really such a thing as running out of ideas completely – but we can hit a road block and sometimes we need to get some inspiration.

Other times, all you need to do is take a look at the infographic below that will give you some examples of types of posts to help keep your juices flowing, your fingers typing, and your content bursting. This graphic comes to us through Copyblogger.

The Rise of the #Selfie

JD Rucker Selfie

Call it a kick that I’m on, but I’ve officially doubled the number of “selfies” that I’ve taken just in the last couple of days. Prior to this week, I had taken 2. Now, I’ve taken 4. It’s a selfie phenomenon. The reason for all of these selfies is that I just uncovered a second infographic about the photo type that is also worth sharing, officially doubling the total posts about selfies on this blog as well. The first selfie infographic was posted just the other day with a much-less admirable attempt at my own image.

Fishing on Facebook for Traffic and Sales #Infographic

Fishing

The majority of businesses on Facebook fall into one of two mindsets. They either use their Facebook feed for sales and marketing only and wonder why they aren’t getting any engagement or they believe that Facebook is strictly a branding tool and there’s no need to try to sell anything or drive traffic to their website. Thankfully, there’s an easy way to prove that both concepts are incorrect.

Canned Social Media Marketing in an Hour Per Day

Can of Social Media

Under normal circumstance, I do not like the types of social media strategies that try to can them into basic processes with time limits. Sure, it’s good to have guidelines, but I find that they’re normally too limiting to allow people to make the right decisions. This infographic is somewhat like that, but it’s design is just too cool in its simplicity to ignore it altogether.

The History of Infographics (an #infographic)

History of the World

When I first got into the infographic business back in 2008, it often took a long explanation to prospective clients in order to get them to understand what they were and what they did. Today, that’s not a problem as dozens of new infographics are unleashed into the world every day.

Infographic on Long Tail SEO

Wikimotive Long Tail Cat

Long tail keywords are becoming a very integral part of small business SEO. Essentially, long tail keywords are longer (duh!) and more specific keywords. These keywords are less common than short keywords individually, but when taken as a whole, they account for the majority of searches and search-driven traffic. There are a few large benefits to long tail keywords, and they shouldn’t be overlooked by marketers in any industry.  [Read more…]

Marketing With Style (Infographic)

Color Painting

Have you ever really thought about why we react to certain colors the way we do? It’s a primal response, one we’re all but helpless to resist. Colors simply evoke emotion in us, cutting straight through all of our higher functions and slamming into our lizard brains. The power of colors is only further enhanced by other design elements, and that’s why graphic design is so very important. When you’re building pages for your Business SEO or other marketing efforts, the slightest tweaks to shade and shape can make or break the success of a page.  [Read more…]
