How Does Social Media Generate Leads?

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?

All About #Vibez

When people look at you, they don’t just see you. They see your clothes, your hair, your face, and your air. You’ve probably heard the air around you called different things, some call it your presence, others your aura, but I like to think of it as your vibe, which is a little different.

Your presence is how people feel when you’re around them, and your aura is a field of energy that emanates from inside of you. Your vibe is what you send out into the universe. The most important thing about vibes is whatever you send into the world around you is what you get back.This may sound like a bunch of mumbo-jumbo, but it’s important for nearly each aspect of our everyday lives.

Twitter Changes!

I’m sure you’ve seen something about all the changes Twitter announced this week. If you were lucky enough to be unplugged then, know the world has changed. Twitter is changing a few rules in the coming months. The 140 character rule that originated so tweets could be text messages, is just one of them. Anyone that spends their time trying to fit everything in 140 characters with a link, an image, and appropriate hashtags, is going to appreciate the 140 character loophole.

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?”
