Good Users Go To Hashtag Heaven

Hashtags are everywhere. And with good reason — when used correctly, the right hashtags can increase engagement, reach new audiences, and help marketers track campaign performance.

Target the Best Social Content Length

They say more is better but I can think of several examples where that’s just not true. More dental work, for one. More time spent in line at the DMV, for another.

Autoplay Enables Eye-Popping New Cinemagraphs

You know, media users are pretty savvy. They can spot an advertisement in their feeds and scroll past it with a quick swipe of the thumb without even registering the name of the business, let alone the message. This, understandably, isn’t what advertisers want to hear. But the truth of the matter is that even when an ad is natively placed right in the middle of our information streams, advertisers...

“What’s The Best Time to Post on (Insert Social Media Platform Here)?”

This is one of the most common questions we get from clients who want more out of their social media marketing efforts and it’s a fundamental piece of any good marketing strategy. We all wish there was a magical formula for finding the right hour and day to post that would guarantee our content receives the most likes, shares, and engagement from our audience every time. Unfortunately, it’s not...

What do you post about on Facebook? Maybe you’re the kind to post updates about the daily details — what you ate for breakfast, what errands you ran, and what you wore to run them. Maybe you’re the kind to post only when you have brag-worthy news, like your recent promotion or the rare tickets you scored to see a massively popular band. Maybe most of your posts are about your feelings,...

Would you want to live where you work? With the overall trend toward a better work/life balance over the past few years, it seems to make sense to eliminate the daily commute between your house and your job.
