Link Friday: The Infographic Edition

Posted on Friday, May 25, 2012 by Alan

After the recent popularity of our infographic about Rhinelander’s famed Hodag, this week’s Link Friday will focus on how infographics have become a common and useful marketing tool.

That’s all from us. Have a good holiday weekend, everybody!

Link Friday: The This-Is-Getting-Embarassing Edition

Oof, 6 o’clock? Really?

Your humble link aggregator apologizes for the late hour, but hopes he can make it up to you with this week’s collection of links. Here we go:

Have a good weekend, everybody!

Link Friday: The Black Cat Edition

Posted on Friday, April 13, 2012 by Alan

You haven’t broken any mirrors or walked under any ladders today, have you? Friday the 13th is bad enough, what with the hockey-masked killers chasing coeds around campsites and all.

So consider yourself lucky, since you’re getting another edition of Link Friday.

  • Have you used any of these ‘social travel’ apps to plan your trips? Pretty cool look into the potential future of our industry.
  • This eye-catching infographic from VentureBeat shows the economic value of all (OK, not all) the social networks out there.
  • Is this promotion too risque? A model for Stussy (they’re still a brand? 1993 will be happy to hear that) will ditch articles of clothing depending on the number of likes the brand’s Facebook page gets.
  • Here’s another interesting promotion coming to us from across the Atlantic: TNT put a big red button with a sign that said “Push to add drama” in the middle of a sleepy Belgian town square. Here’s what happened.
  • The Internet is ruining our brains? That’s unpossible.

Over and out from P&BHQ. Enjoy your weekend, and stay lucky today!

Link Friday: The Double-Live-Gonzo Edition

Mea culpa. I apologize. A thousand pardons.

I know the readers of Link Friday (all 12 of you) were broken-hearted when last Friday came and went with no sign of your weekly blog post. Things were a little crazy around here last week, with a new employee starting (welcome, Sarrut!) and everyone preparing for the Governor’s Conference on Tourism in Green Bay.

To make it up to you, here’s a double dose of the cool things we’ve found in the last couple weeks in the fields of destination marketing, social media and the like:

Thanks for reading, everybody! Have a great weekend, and we’ll be back next week (promise!) with more links for all y’all.

Link Friday: The It-Felt-Like-It-Should-Have-Been-Friday-on-Thursday edition

Posted on Friday, January 27, 2012 by Alan

Long, busy, productive, successful week over here at P&B. I think I may sleep through the entire weekend.

Anyway, on to the things we liked this week:

  • Facebook rolled out its new Timeline look for all users this week. (I’ve had it for a while and like it, but don’t use as many of its features as I should/could.) Brand pages are still waiting for the new format, but PR Daily says Timeline could have a huge impact if it’s rolled out for businesses.
  • Sticking with social media, here’s a list of 11 deadly social media “sins” put together by the folks over at ClickZ. (I’d like to say I’ve never done any of these, but I like to be up front with my readers…)
  • Kindra put on her hipster glasses and let us know about this super-cool annual report from chic eyewear retailer Warby Parker.
  • Ericka (aka E2) shared this infographic — in handy periodic table form — breaking down the do’s and don’ts of SEO (search engine optimization).
  • And if you didn’t see it, we did a super-awesome infographic of our own this week.

That’s it from P&BHQ. Until next week!
