Content – Design, Styles, Marketing – 6

The colour you use adds not only emotion but points to other basic areas of meaning. It is part of the message. It has its own psychology.

There is a real difference in the effects that, for example, a bright, full, basic colour will have upon someone looking at your content in comparison with that provoked by a softer, gentler, perhaps pastel shade will generate. There is a difference between the strident, blaring simplicity of one and the more subdued suggestions of the other. This can and should be echoed in the accompanying text. Are you shouting a statement or telling a story perhaps with a little decoration? Are you making a plain statement or suggesting a scene, a background, gesturing towards a series of feelings.

Similarly your choice of illustration – accompanied by its own palette and the emotions it brings along – makes a statement, it aids in telling the story, it also suggests what all of your content should be bringing to the table. You are looking to have particular groups, segments of the viewing public relate to your content in an effectively positive way. One should reinforce the other and so on – colour, image, text, channel, timing.

New year, new design trends. One of the great things about web design is that it is constantly evolving. You can find trends or even just hints of things to come almost by chance as new ideas seem to populate all at once. This month’s examples are a lot of fun with websites using space in interesting ways, new online shopping experiences and the return of pastel color palettes. Here’s what’s trending in design this month: 1) Exaggerated use of space The right amount of space can make or break a design. Whether it is white, a background color or surrounds text or images, “empty” space in a design can speak volumes. Exaggerated use of space is one of those design trends that can be a lot of fun, and when used well it can be rather effective in helping users know just how to look at or use a website or app. Open space is an extension of minimal styles that have been popular for some time, but with one major exception: Rather than a symmetrical outline with space all around, these designs

Content marketing isn’t nearly as important as doing content marketing correctly, and knowing that it ultimately comes down to the audience and how well they’re

If there is one basic watchword to use in terms of content marketing is this;

  • make your content resonate with your target audience
  • tailor it to suit

There are all sorts of styles you can adopt:

  • gentle humour
  • vibrant straight-talk, the big bang
  • scene setting

These are just a few ideas. The first things you need to do are to analyze who your targets are, your target audience and your potential buyers. What age range are they in? What income bracket are they in? Gender? Tastes? Interests? Are they pub types, fine dining restaurant types, football terrace types, day out with the kids in the park, drive to the seaside, ski in Switzerland? All of these qualifying questions and the full range of similar will help identify what your targets will react to in a positive manner. The you need to deliver it – through channels your targets will use, at the time they are likely to be usiing those channels and in a way that will catch their eyes and make them remember it all and you.

When you have built a characterisation of your targets, then you can start to build, to create something that becomes a branding and mrketing stream. You build by fitting one to the other, but do it creatively.

Content Marketing – styles, copy, design … 1

This is definitively a digital world in which we live. Much of this globe has its lives centred around what is and is not presented via the web. Business is no different and so even for the small business having an online presence is a must. How that presence is cast is something else. It is not just about making a bland or bald statement of what your business is about – it is so much more. We have to put out there all of the basics – contact details, places, opening times, what is sold, what services are offered etc. On top of all of that we have to do it in a way that catches the eye, intrigues the mind, makes it all interesting to potential customers or clients. This means doing all sorts of things:

  • adding suitable imagery, photographic or graphic,
  • saying the right thing, in other words presenting the right copy, having the right taglines
  • perhaps adding video, styled in a particular way, coloured, styled well with good audio
  • it may mean doing it via audio itself, a podcast or such
  • choosing the right channels to present it all.

What we have to sort out along the way is how we present things – what sort of style we are going to use.

… and here are a few things just to get you started …

Content marketing is an effective way to reach your target audience by offering relevant content that addresses their needs. Here are some tips to success.
