  14. finite List: 5 MEDIA TYPEs
  15. Eg Slides The 34% of the 16k total views came from embedded media. 30 Embeds in total. Other people’s blogs are more effective than yours. You need to let go and utilize media in every post. Note: 265 downloads. That’s dark social at work. You don’t know where that got shared. 16k VIEWS SlideShare LINK. Highlights Embeds/Views - 1151 - 809 linkedin.com770 - 719 - 455 397 - 261 - 199 - 118 - 104 - 44 - 13 - 11 - 3
  16. Eg Videos Embedding accounted for 66% of this video’s 51k views. This is proof that MEDIA and BLOGS trump MEDIA or BLOGS Media and blog work best together. YouTube Link 51k VIEWS
  17. Eg LISTs 50% of this list’s 166k views are via multiple embeds. If you are not using media, you are missing out. Great quality content will get found, but not always on your blog. A search on YouTube or Slideshare won’t find your blog, it could find your content. Listly Link Listly 166k VIEWS
  18. Eg Images Just to prove a point (and not to convey any form of Presidential approval), I thought I’d share this image because it’s had so many views! More proof of the power of Media Platforms. Flickr Link Flickr images are easy to embed 2.4m VIEWS
