Content Creation fun on #SocialSong Saturday, Morfo Style
The Twitter Love Song Goes Morfo in the Weirdest #SocialSong Saturday Yet
I admit it – I shamelessly use #SocialSong Saturday as a platform to position myself as an out-of-the-ordinary content creator. This week, however, I may be a little too out of the ordinary – you tell me.
It’s all because I stumbled across the Morfo app a couple of days ago and couldn’t resist employing it, howsoever amateurishly, in this week’s version of the Twitter love song. The app allows you to animate straight-on facial photographs, and give them voice. For better or worse, that’s what I’ve done with and/or to the following (all of whom, for very different reasons, I find more than worthwhile to follow on Twitter):
@dannysullivan OK, it takes no peculiar insight or imagination to suggest following the sultan of SearchEngineLand and MarketingLand, Danny Sullivan. Still, it occurs to me that many of my friends and followers come more recently from TraditionalMarketingLand and may not know who the leading gurus in various disciplines are (for other suggestions, look through my other #SocialSong Saturday posts, including the very first). If you’re looking to learn more about search-related issues in particular, it’s hard to do better than the much-shared Danny Sullivan.
@remtonar Remington Tonar weighed in this week with a tweet about a branding-meets-religion article I wrote for Branding Magazine several months ago. Since the only “calling” I ever felt (and somehow ignored) was to be a minister, his mention of being a “theologian turned brand strategist” quickly caught my imagination. Remington runs a “boutique consultancy” called Culture Concepts focusing on ”stakeholder cultures” (words in quotes are from his website).
@MikeHale is a Chicago-area guy like me, who I’ve actually had the pleasure of meeting in real life (rare these days). His Twitter profile bills him as a “WordPress & .Net Developer. Puppeteer. Guitarist.” What more could you ask for… except perhaps to see if he can make a puppet play guitar. His blog is a good source of practical information, fulfilling his promise to “help small companies make big communities.”
@bradshorr Brad Shorr runs the B2B practice at the digital marketing firm Straight North. I found him through a Content Marketing Institute guest post he wrote on a subject near and dear to my heart and wallet – how to be more creative with content marketing. We had a nice little Twitter exchange about it, leaving me hoping for more creatively focused advocacy from this agency leader.
Let me know what you think of these Morfo-ing shout-outs (but don’t judge Morfo’s potential based on my clumsy, newbie “productions”). And please let me know, too, what great new content creation tools you’ve discovered in the last few weeks.. after all, knowing what capabilities you have at hand often helps inspire the content you create.
