April Fools- Happy Pranking!

Today is April 1st. Everyone knows that means it’s April Fools’ Day or All Fools’ Day. This is a day to “duck and cover” if you work or live with pranksters.

April Fools’ has been a tradition for centuries, possibly dating back to France in 1582. People didn't want to start the new year on January 1st and continued to celebrate it at the end of March/beginning of April. These people became the butt of jokes and hoaxes.

Why Everyone Should Fail

What ever you do don’t be afraid to fail!

Don’t be afraid to try something new, because you’re scared that you aren’t going to be good at it. As Nike says “Just Do It”! People fail all the time and when they do they only become stronger.  It is because of the mistakes we make we learn what and what not to do moving forward. It goes off the phrase “you don’t know what you don’t know and you wont know until you try” 

Fear and insecurities are the single biggest threats when becoming successful. Fear it’s self can significantly paralyze you and your business growth.

Does Your Brand Stand Out From The Crowd?

Recently, everyone in the Atlanta office took a personality test. If you follow our blogs you can see that we have a very diverse group here in ATL! This helps keep us on our toes and gives us the unusual ability to see a problem from different angles for our clients. But enough about us, we know our personalities. What I want to know is - do you know the personality of your brand?

It seems so often that we focus on external perceptions of what we should or shouldn’t be doing. 

For me, 2016 is about, sharing what I know, giving all I got, and helping others achieve their goals. 

I’ve always felt that I’ve lived with abundance, even as a kid I had the sort of personality that led me to help, share, and try to look at the “bright side of life”. But this year I decided to step it up a notch, and actively consolidated my abundance philosophy across all aspects of my life and business in a tangible way.

Here’s how I’m doing it, and you can do it too:

What's Your Dominant Personality Trait?

The other day Marketing Eye as a team decided to take the Myers Briggs personality test. What an eye opening experience this was for all of us. We came across the conclusion is that our team is very diverse. Before taking the test some personality traits were obvious, but others were hidden talents that had not been discovered until completion of this test. Not only was the test great for gaining more insight into our co-workers personalities but it was valuable for personal reflection.

How to Get More Likes On Instagram

Do you ever wonder why you’re not getting a ton of likes on your Instagram picture? It is most likely due to the fact that you have adopted bad photo habits. Believe it or not, Instagram isn’t just an app where you can snap a quick picture, post it, and magically have a 100 likes within the hour (unless you’re an animal). How many likes you get on your Instagram photo depends on picture quality, wittiness of caption, use of hashtags, frequency of posts, and of course the content you share across your target audience. Below is a list of 5 quick tricks to help boost your likes on Instagram.

What Can Snapchat Do For Marketers?

Social media, a virtual world designed to share, to exchange information, or to notify all of your contacts of how photogenic your cat is. Many social media outlets have assertively established their importance in the marketing industry. However, as these platforms evolve, it is key that marketers take full advantage of them.

While all channels of social media aren’t applicable to every business, if used efficiently they can be a creative avenue to reach target audiences. Currently, snapchat is the new wave.

Snapchat is a mobile application that allows users to send and receive "self-destructing" photos and videos called snaps. Additionally, users can post snaps creating a montage like “story” for all their followers to view. Snapchat has successfully distinguished itself from other media platforms with their live, then disappearing content characteristics.

Okay, enough back story. What can Snapchat do for marketers? Oh, how the possibilities are endless with this one, so here’s a few.

Often we hear our clients say, “but we don’t need social media,” or “social media isn’t right for our target market," or "we don't need to worry about that now” but we are here to convince them otherwise.

Social media is a powerful tool that NEEDS to be part of your marketing strategy.  Whether it is facebook, twitter, instagram or youtube these platforms can be used to your advantage.

How To Create An About Page That Stands Out

Writing copy for an about page can feel a little awkward especially if you happen to be writing about yourself.  It can feel like bragging but remember most people are reading your about page to learn about you. They want to know who you are, if you can be trusted to do what you claim, and if they can connect with your brand on any level.
