Social media monitoring entered the marketers' lives rather suddenly, becoming common practice in no time. Yet, it can be not extremely straightforward for the less experienced in the field. One of the frequent questions about social media monitoring is this: what keywords should you monitor? This is an important question, so let me start from the beginning.
One factor of social media marketing that people often tend to underestimate is the use of emojis. Emojis, as insignificant as they may look, can serve as a language of its own. What most people fail to realize is that now, you can use emojis to communicate with your audience in a visual manner. Let's see how to do it right.
Being a digital marketer means always staying up-to-date with the new and upcoming trends. Changes happen fast. New SEO rules, new social media advertising costs, new tools that transform the life of a marketer. Sometimes, almost unpredictable things happen, like the appearance of a new super-cool social media platform that simply wasn’t there yesterday. But sometimes the trends rise and fall relatively slowly. It’s important to pay attention to them, see how they progress from year to year, stick to them whenever it makes sense and abandon them whenever the hype or the usefulness has decreased or is about to. This post is mostly about the second type.
Everything changes. Five years ago, you could easily market your products through ads and could make a nice amount of revenue. If your ads were featured on larger websites, you’d basically be set for some time. Unfortunately for some, that time has passed.
Quora is a community-fueled question-and-answer site. It's as straightforward as it gets: after registering a profile, anyone can ask a question and anyone can answer one. Questions range from relationship advice to feminists of the Second World War and have everything in-between. How can it be useful for us marketers?
Let's find out.
Instagram is an exceptional photo-sharing social media platform. It's young, it's extremely popular, and it's the most engaged platform after Facebook. 32% of U.S. teens cite Instagram as their favorite social network. But there is more. 53% of Instagram users follow their favorite brands on Instagram, and 44% use Instagram for product research. That's more than any other social media platform! So you need a really good reason to discard Instagram marketing. And "my product isn't pretty" isn't a good enough reason. I get it: Instagram marketing can be intimidating. It seems that the only brands that can win with it should sell mouth-watering food, clothes or beauty products. And that's pretty much it. Truth is, it might be easier for them to come up with the appropriate content but their competition on Instagram is higher as well. Although you might need a bit more filtering and creativity to sell, say, fridges than you would to sell flowers, your efforts won't be wasted. So I highly suggest to consider Instagram marketing. And hopefully this article will help you with this.
There’s no doubt about it: our modern, technology-laden world is primed for creative marketers looking to develop exciting content to promote their brand’s products or services. However, while internally-created content certainly can be used to effectively generate buzz, increase engagement, and drive sales, the fact is that your marketing team can only do so much.
