  1. hey jasleen,

    thank you and your team for creating this very intriguing infographic – i really liked it!! and i think you’ve covered some very interesting points!

    just a few q’s and observations!

    (some of us would love for your team to demystify some of the points by sharing examples – that of course could be the next article!!!) eg. Turn your email outbox into a blog post – i reckon SETH GODIN’S emailers make a great example of it – it’s such an awesome thought and does so well for each of us!!!

    – does the 1000+ word form article really work still? everyone is switching over to short videos, rather vlogs! folks are consuming everything via mobile and seem to be watching more and more videos now! any data on that?

    – ‘Create a Buyer PERSONA before producing content’ (you might want to correct the typo “personal” in your infograph)

    – this is something i like encouraging 🙂 Repurpose Old Content to Breathe Fresh Life 

  2. ps: would love for your team to also share any recent data on optimum time to share content over social media in india

    this is the latest i could find (and it’s not india specific)
