Team Caffeine’s Bold Blend is our Friday boost of inspiration to kick start your weekend.
This is content we’ve hand picked from across the Internet because it gives us a buzz we know you’ll love too.
In this week’s round-up:
- The highest ROI way to increase signups: Make a minimal homepage (Andrew Chen)
- The Social Media Landing Page – The Underutilized Page You’ll Kick Yourself for Not Having (Social Mouths)
- 3 Social Media Questions Every Brand Should Ask Itself (Fast Company)
- Infographic – 5 Killer Strategies to Dominate Social Media’s Big 3: Facebook, Twitter and YouTube (Socialnomics)
Here’s a quick exercise to blow your mind. Take a nosey at the home pages of the world’s fastest growing companies. Dropbox, LinkedIn, Pinterest or Quora. What do they all have in common? They’re minimalist. All you can do is log-in or join. Mattan Griffel explains in detail why minimalist homepages work so well.
Sticking with the theme of web pages, check out this guide to social media landing pages from Social Mouths. Are you missing out on conversions because you don’t have a landing page?
We’ve got some more uncommon wisdom from Hayes Davis, who in addition to having a cool name also asks some difficult questions. Is the customer always right? Do you really want customer feedback to be public, as it is on social media?
Last, as this week’s bonus, we’ve got an infographic showing you how to rock it on social media’s big three. After reading this, you’ll be ready to sit on the King’s throne at Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
Until next week, keep it buzzing!
