A callout to me personally via Twitter direct message has led to a position as a panellist on a two-hour television show on Friday nights on Sky Television, a Rupert Murdoch owned station. Sky TV is not dissimilar to Fox TV. The politically inspired television show is one of the best I have seen, with a substantial cross-section of panellists, all with a point of view that resonates with the audience.

Should you take up a new opportunity or not?

The Epoch of the Hashtag

The metadata tags go back all the way to 1988 on a platform known as Internet Relay Chat or IRC. That pound (#) symbol was actually being used to group messages, images, and other content on the IRC.

Jump to 2003 where you have Chris Messina, a social technology expert, who asked his following how they would feel about using the pound sign to keep track of conversations on Twitter.

As an avid technology enthusiast, I am always looking up new and exciting technologies that may be instrumental in our clients future marketing campaigns.

One such technology asked for Marketing Eye's competitors, and did an analysis on where they sit from a digital perspective compared to Marketing Eye Atlanta. It was fascinating. Our company is a mere 4 years old in the US, and in year one, we realized that we outperformed all our competitors on Google listings/rankings and all areas of social media. It was something we were very proud of, as we don't spend all day pushing this medium, but a bit over 30 minutes in total including writing this blog.

I am an avid lover of everything about Twitter. From time to time I become somewhat obsessed and with a combination of Ashleigh Cameron who is now 20 years old and has worked for Marketing Eye for the past 3 years, from junior through to social media curator - we have forged an organic growth rate of 80,000 plus followers.

Not trying to buy and build, these followers are real and with 97% authenticity, we have done a really good job.

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?

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.

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?”
