How to use ThingLink to create an interactive mind map
Have you ever wondered how to add interactivity to your mind maps? Wouldn’t it be great if you could package explanations with the content of your mind maps, without creating something cluttered and hard to read? You can accomplish this goal by using a tool called ThingLink.

ThingLink inserts a layer over the top of an image or video and enables you to quickly and easily create interactive hotspots. Each hotspot can contain a text box and hypertext link. This makes it possible for publishers, educators, brands and bloggers to create interactive experiences for their audiences.

In my new report, I will help you understand what ThingLink is, how it works and why you should consider using it. I will then share a simple step-by-step process for creating an interactive mind map featured here:

It's time to stop stupid mind mapping recommendations

All too often, when business websites cover mind mapping software, they rely on freelance writers who highlight a random collection of programs – and ignore some truly great ones. Their recommendations mislead business people who are seeking mind mapping solutions to their information management challenges – and cause them to underestimate the true power of mind mapping software.

In this new article, I explore this growing issue, explain why it's a problem, highlight some examples of it and then tell you what I'm going to do about it.
