America’s Businesses, Always Changing

The American dream, something the world wants and everyone can have…. or well used to be able to have. Times have changed. Little mom and pop places are being replaced with huge corporate businesses like Walmart and Publix. Even little restaurants are falling behind to the national expansions of places like Chili's and LongHorn. They can still be found though, you might just have to look harder than you imagined.
Marketing technology is an essential part of the marketing mix. To understand fully the implementations of various technology platforms, is hard and near impossible for most fulltime marketing managers navigating today’s competitive landscape.

This week, we have been completing our yearly in-depth training sessions with our U.S. based team. That means reminding ourselves about all areas of marketing, and what role technology plays in powering marketing performance.

Like most seasoned marketers, we break up the marketing technology mix into six categories; marketing experiences, operations, middleware, platforms, infrastructure and internet.

In case you have been living under a rock, the “millennial generation” is adults that age from 18 to 34 years old. This generation has been causing a lot of chaos for marketers and brands alike. With a generation so connected to the world and their cellular devices, how do you reach them? It seems that nothing can captivate their attention. Brands are panicking and the attention span of a millennial is shrinking. Is time running out? Maybe and maybe not.

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.

Dress For The Social Media Platform

Someone recently ask me… “how do you tell what kind of voice you use for each social media platform?”

The question really got me thinking. Each platform has a specific personality.  All postings should be based on your audience, but you have to think about how they want to hear your valuable information. Do they want to read an extensive study? Would they prefer a humorous anecdote. What are they looking for? An easy way to make that decision is: What kind of attire is your audience wearing when they read your post?”

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 Are You Really Going To Make Money?

I absolutely love hanging around ATV listening to every single tech entrepreneurs story and dream. They all have "Big Dreams" and that is the mandate of being here at Atlanta Tech Village - but there is one problem. Can they make it commercial?

If everyone is walking one way, walk the other

Often in public speeches I talk about how social media was Marketing Eye's game changer. It took us from doing the hard yards marketing with what dollars we had left to do so, to sitting back and taking orders - literally.

When we started out on social media, we were reluctant. What do we share? How do we share it? What would our target audience be interested in? We had so many questions, but due to the infancy of social media and blogging at the time, we were able to experiment. I would write one blog, and see the results. It may have been a pure marketing blog with really good content and would get a few hundred readers.


Then I would write a blog about being an entrepreneur, and it would get a few thousand readers.
