Will Content Continue to Rule?

In the movie Little Women, Jo March’s (Saoirse Ronan) inky fingers give her away as the writer rather than just the bearer of someone else’s manuscript; as she claims initially in the newspaper editor’s office, she’s nervously visiting. The editor decisively strikes through many pages before accepting a story and making an offer of payment. Thrilled to the core, Jo March runs through the streets for she had sold her first piece of content!

Content - readers love it and writers enjoy creating it. The types of content are many and good content has driven industries like printing, publishing, broadcast, film, search engines, AI etc.

History of Content

Scripts and artwork carved and painted onto rocks, metals and other media, have survived the ravages of time to tell us of our collective civilizational histories. Somewhere in our distant past, human intellect created ink, and inks, in turn, helped grow human intellect. It was used to write edicts, laws, religious texts, epics, medical formulations, sensual poetry, taboos, etc., on palm leaves, papyrus, cloth, skins, tablets, etc.

Every blogger is interested in getting as much traffic as possible. For them, a large number of visitors is a kind of reward for their efforts and hard work, because creating good content requires serious effort. It is important for a blogger not only to retain old users, but also to attract new ones. The most effective ways to get new traffic are guest posting, SMM, and content syndication.

User-generated content has superseded other marketing trends and fallen into the advertising feeds of brands. Today, more than 86 percent of companies use user-generated content as part of their marketing strategy.

Furthermore, you can embed your social media feed on your website also. you can use the Social Stream Designer WordPress plugin that will integrate various social media feeds from different social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and many more. With this plugin, you can create a responsive wall on your WordPress website or blog in a few minutes. In addition to this, the plugin also provides more than 40 customization options to make your social stream feeds more attractive.

  1. Consumer Survey
    The customer survey provides powerful insights you need to make a better decision for your business. Moreover, it is great user-generated content that is useful for identifying unhappy consumers and those who like your product or service.

In general, surveys can be used to figure out attitudes, reactions, to evaluate customer satisfaction, estimate their opinions about different problems. Another benefit of customer surveys is that collecting outcomes can be quick. Within a few minutes, you can design and load a customer feedback survey and send it to your customers for their response. From the customer survey data, you can find your strengths, weaknesses, and get the right way to improve them to gain more customers.

  1. Run Contests
    A contest is a wonderful way to increase awareness about a product or service. Contest not just helps you to enhance the volume of user-generated content submissions, but they also help increase their quality. However, when you create a contest, it is important to keep things as simple as possible.

Additionally, it is the best way to convert your brand leads to valuable customers. The key to running a successful contest is to make sure that the reward is fair enough to motivate your participation. If the product is relevant to your participant, then chances are they were looking for it in the first place, and giving it to them for free just made you move forward ahead of your competitors. They will most likely purchase more if your product or service satisfies them.

Furthermore, running contests also improve the customer-brand relationship and allows more people to participate in it. It will drive a real result for your online business. If your WordPress website has Google Analytics, then track contest page visits, referral traffic, other website traffic, and many more.

The business reviews help your consumers to make a buying decision without any hurdle. While you may decide to remove all the negative reviews about your business, those are still valuable user-generated content that provides honest opinions from real users. Customer feedback can help you with what needs to be improved with your products or services. This thing is not only beneficial to the next customer but your business as a whole.

Reviews are powerful as the platform they are built upon. That is the reason it is important to gather reviews from third-party review websites like Google review, Facebook review, and many more, or direct reviews on a website. It is the most vital form of feedback that can help brands grow globally and motivate audience interactions.

However, you can also invite your customers to share their unique or successful testimonials. It is a great way to display your products while inspiring others to purchase from your website.

  1. Video Content
    A great video is a video that is enjoyed by visitors. These different types of videos, such as 360-degree product videos, product demo videos, animated videos, and corporate videos. The Facebook study has demonstrated that users spend 3x more time watching live videos than normal videos. With the live video, you can get more user-created content.

Moreover, Instagram videos create around 3x more comments rather than Instagram photo posts. Instagram videos generally include short videos posted by real customers on Instagram with the tag of a particular brand. Brands can repost the stories as user-generated content to engage more audiences and create valid promotions on social media.

Similarly, imagine you are browsing a YouTube channel, and you look at a brand being supported by some authentic customers through a small video. So, it will catch your attention. With the videos, they can tell you about the branded products, especially the unboxing videos displaying all the inside products and how well it works for them. That type of video is enough to create a sense of desire in the consumers.

The Role of Continuous Integration in Agile

l tasks, developers can focus on more enjoyable, value-adding work. And because the delivery lifecycle doesn’t have to wait for human intervention, bottlenecks are eliminated and time to delivery is faster.

Additionally, any errors are found easily and resolved quickly because small batches of code are released frequently.

Continuous integration has many benefits, including:

  • Rapid integration
  • Improved visibility
  • Increase coordination and communication
  • Improved quality
  • Reduced risk
  • Fast resolution of issues
  • Reallocation of resources to strategic objectives

8 Fallacies of Continuous Delivery

A quintessential piece for anyone working with distributed systems is the Fallacies of Distributed Computing by L Peter Deutsch. Even when working with modern platforms such as Kubernetes, the assertions made in the Fallacies of Distributed Computing prove to be very true around latency, bandwidth and system administration.

Continuous Delivery practices and systems are increasing in popularity. When designing, implementing or maintaining Continuous Delivery systems, fallacies do exist. Similar to the eight Fallacies of Distributed Computing, there are eight Fallacies of Continuous Delivery.

1. You Will Always Deploy Successfully

A common pitfall in any system development is to build for the happy path. Because software requires innovation and iteration, deployments will fail, and a failure and recovery path needs to be accounted for.

In lower environments, confidence-building steps such as automated tests will have a higher failure / not-passing rate, as confidence is built into the deployment and feedback loops allow for corrections to eventually pass the test coverage.

2. Your Administrators Will Stay

People never stay in the same position forever. Deep expertise in bespoke deployments is at risk with those with tribal knowledge off-board. This also causes a steeper learning curve for those who onboard as platform administrators or onboard their application to the Continuous Delivery system.

**3. Deployments are Always Homogeneous **

A deployment is a culmination of potentially multiple teams and their respective services. There are several approaches to deployment, but because of variations in the scope of changes, rarely are two changes exactly the same. Certain deployments require downtime, while others may require a rolling or canary release strategy.

**4. Rollback Cost is Zero **

The time to decide or make a judgment call to rollback or roll forward certainly carries a cost. Depending on the criticality of the impacted system(s), the clock is ticking, battling the technical point of no return and impact to the business. Once a rollback or roll forward decision is made and executed, validation still needs to occur.
