While social media marketing was once dismissed as a fleeting fad, businesses today with a strong social media presence are seeing very real benefits by consistently interacting with their customers and getting in touch with them online as opposed to through a traditional brick and mortar store, hard copy mailings or phone calls.

4 Twitter Changes You Won’t Want to Miss!

There’s been some big news in the social media world recently: Twitter is rolling out four new changes that will give you more flexibility with each update!

Upcoming Twitter Changes

This is a picture of the Twitter bird sitting on top of a laptop.

Keep an eye out for these changes coming to Twitter soon!

As Twitter announced on its blog, “In the coming months we’ll make changes to simplify Tweets including what counts toward your 140 characters.”

Here are the details:

  1. When you reply to another user, the @username will no longer be included in the 140-character count, giving you a few more characters in your Twitter update.
  2. When you add an attachment (such as a photo, meme, GIF, quote tweet, poll or video), the media file will no longer use up your valuable characters, so you’ll have more room to include words in your Tweet.
  3. Twitter will give users the ability to retweet or quote tweet themselves, which will allow you to add context from a previous update you posted.
  4. Updates that begin with an @username will now reach all your followers. Currently, if you start your Tweet with @username, Twitter thinks you’re replying to another user and doesn’t post the update on your followers’ timelines, so many users that want to start a Tweet by referencing another user’s name, but still want all their followers to see it, begin the update with “.@username.” Confused? Don’t worry – soon this convention will become a thing of the past!

Watching Television for Social Media Inspiration

TV from the 1950's

Television has been a fan favorite since the 1950’s.

Television began in 1927 but didn’t really take off until the 1950’s. The appeal of television in this era was that it connected people from different parts of the world together. Major events, such as the debate of John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon and Walter Cronkite announcing the death of President Kennedy, had the entire nation glued to their TV sets. Social media today has become what television once was. Users head straight to social media to get their news, product information and reviews of businesses on computers and phones. If your company is thinking of getting into the social media game, here are ways to find inspiration from America’s favorite medium as you venture in to its current obsession. Continue reading

It’s no secret that social media marketing has huge potential for businesses and entrepreneurs alike. The benefits of a strong campaign go far beyond your bottom line. There are countless reasons why this type of advertising and promotion wins over the most leads and conversions.

3 Massive Benefits of Social Media Marketing

I could easily sit here and list 75 benefits of social media marketing, but let’s look at the big picture and how these platforms benefit your company:

1. You Build Trust

When you think about your favorite brands, you realize that you trust them. You’ve always known them to be good to you, therefore you remain loyal and continue purchasing their products. Your actions and efforts on social media help build that trust and loyalty with your customers.

2. It Builds Authority and Credibility

Your social media is powered by the content you create on your business blog. Once you’ve found your resource on making a website, and you’ve started producing this content, you’ll start promoting it on your chosen platforms. As people start to see your brand as an authority, you’ll gain credibility. This all points to increased trust, loyalty, and increased conversions.

3. Increased Customer Engagement

Social media offers a huge potential for better engagement and customer service. Since everything happens on these platforms in real-time, the opportunities for you to grow your audience and nurture your leads are endless. Continue reading
