You probably know this already, but LinkedIn is amazing. When it comes to networking with professionals, there is simply no better place to hang out. Not Snapchat. Not Facebook. Not Huzza. Not Blab. Nada. LinkedIn is the professional’s jam.
This presidential campaign may be the craziest, most divisive one in the history of the United States. At least that’s what social media would have us believe. Don’t worry. I’m not going to get all political in this post.
I’ve experimented a lot with posting frequency on social media. Mastering this one skill has been pivotal in growing my social and blog followings into the hundreds of thousands.
With SnapChat and live streaming taking the world by storm, it’s getting easier to look at Twitter and the older social networks as antiques on the digital web. Success on SnapChat sounds cooler than on Twitter, but success is success regardless of which social network you succeed on.
It’s no secret that beautiful, eye-catching imagery is a great tool to getting your brand noticed on social media. Tweets with images tend to get 150% more retweets than ones without and images are easily the most shared and fav’d content on Facebook.
As the old saying goes, “the pen is mightier than the sword.” This is definitely true when it comes to Facebook marketing, and I’ve found that the words I use (or don’t use) play a huge role in audience engagement. It’s a science really.
Social media now has over 2 billion users worldwide. That’s nearly 25% of the population of the whole planet! And if your business has a target audience who responds well to visuals (think cooking, travel, or fitness) then Instagram is a platform that you cannot overlook.
Remember when Twitter was just a baby? Some people loved it. Some people scoffed it. Most people didn’t understand it. Despite limiting messages to 140 characters and being over a decade old, the microblogging site Twitter still boasts over 65 million active users.
I probably don’t need to tell you how important social media is to your business’s success. It is quite literally the fastest growing trend in all of human history! Social media has grown even faster than the Internet itself!
