We’re talking informative posts about your company on all social media platforms you participate in. It is important that social media users see that you have your own brand, ideas, and story to share. Here are our top 5 “tools of the trade” for posting original content:
7 Common Misconceptions About Social Media
It is no secret that social media is becoming predominantly popular today amongst marketers and businesses alike. However, if you’re a business that is still not on social media then you most likely have a misconception about social media.
Social Media
Instagram is more than pictures, and facebook is more than a stalking tool. These two popular social media platforms are just a couple of content driven marketing tools that your business can use to generate leads. Think of it as an equation:

Content = Leads = $$ = Recommendations = $$$$

Seems simple enough, right?

Then how are so many businesses getting it wrong?
ESPN, You Did It Again

ESPN, You Did It Again

Jul 22, 2016 Written by
ESPN has developed quite a reputation, and depending on who you talk to, it could be one of two things. First, Bill Simmons of HBO does not have the kindest words for his former employer, to put it lightly. Second, the masses have long known ESPN for its comical commercials that feature star athletes and analysts alike. Recently, ESPN aired a commercial featuring David “Big Papi” Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox alongside two of his teammates. Without giving away too much, the commercial deals with his impending retirement at the culmination of this season. This isn’t the first time ESPN has used sports culture to push its name out there. These six commercials embody wit, humor, and much more along the way. Below are some short teasers for the commercials that have people rolling on the floor (literally) with laughter.
Travel- It's Good For Marketing
In the quiet city of Udaipur, India, there is a small restaurant that is highly rated on Trip Advisor...but by appearance alone it is not much of a restaurant. The small “cafe” is a home for a family- including kids and grandparents. There is one dining table right next to the kitchen. Upon entering the cafe it is easy to see the second floor landing where one can find the grandfather watching cartoons with the children or washing his face before bed.

What Do Wedding Invites and Email Campaigns Have In Common?
Planning a wedding is very stressful. Everyone you know has an opinion, anyone you talk to will give you advice, and your family, well… you know them, they fall into a category all on their own. There are so many things you need to get together, a venue, dress, photographer, food, cake, DJ or band, etc. Then you have to consider the wedding invitations. In putting together mine I approached it in a similar way I would approach an email campaign.

Apple’s Magnificent iPhone
Just bought a new iphone? Welp, there’s probably already another one in the works. And of course as soon as it comes out we will all just have to have it. Because it is so different from the one we bought not even a year ago right. Why do we have to have something that’s brand new even if we have the exact same one at home already, it's just slightly older? It still works fine and looks pretty good. However as soon as that new one comes out we abandon it like there’s no tomorrow.

Thanks
Nurturing quality leads and maintaining good client relationships is almost a job of its own, especially considering how difficult it can be at times. I think we all know that burning bridges is a foolish idea, no matter how right it feels to give them a piece of your mind. That’s a slam dunk, no-brainer, gimme-putt in the business world today, but is that enough? If we avoid burning bridges, can we consider it a job well done?
Oh Honey, You Do NOT Have The Eye…
Your third eye, it’s real.

In Buddhism, your third eye, often denoted as a small dot between the eyebrows, is a representation of your minds eye. Many followers of the religion also believe the eye to be a representation of wisdom. Some Hindu philosophers view “the eye”, as an extrasensory perception, that is, being able to see things in your daily life not plain to the naked eye. In other words, the eye allows you to look beyond what you see.

In business, as in both the Hindu and Buddhist faiths, it’s important to open up your third eye; In my line of work, we call that your Marketing Eye.

What does that mean?

We hear this all the time from clients:


“My product and/or service is amazing!
It has so many capabilities and endless possibilities- it can do this and it can do that…
We need to do this and we need to do that right now!”


While the end product is in fact amazing, these entrepreneurs are so head deep into their product that it consumes them. It consumes them so much to which they have lost sight of their initial goal. Establishing their brand. Yes, it’s great that your product does so many things and will be able to do much more in the future, but ask yourself “Is my brand well known right now?” if you answered no then take a step back and focus on pushing out current content that tells your brand story. Once your product has traction then you can start releasing and pushing out new content.
Creating a Lead Magnet
We’ve all heard the expression “money is in the list,” and it’s true. So, to build the list what is your best tool? I’m a fan of the lead magnet. A lead magnet is defined as an irresistible and ethical bribe offering a specific chunk of value to a prospect in exchange for their contact information. Creating a good lead magnet is different than just creating something. It has to be relevant to what you eventually want to sell, and it has to be of value to your audience.
What You Should Do When Marketing To A Niche Community
Being gluten free is a trend that has been getting more and more popular recently. Some are doing it as a diet just trying to cut some unwanted fat out of their lives, whiles others have to because they are allergic or intolerant to it. Either way gluten free options are beginning to pop up everywhere you look.

What is gluten? It is a protein that is found mainly in wheat that provides elasticity to the dough. When you think about how many things are made with wheat flour, it already cuts out a lot of the normal everyday food a person might eat. Say goodbye to bread, most cereals, cookies, and pasta. Now these are just the things we know contain flour, but gluten can be in other foods as well where flour is absent.
