We were thinking: we were blogging here for quite a while now. So this #EncourageAYoungWriterDay, we decide to pay it forward and give some blogging tips for all you young writers out there.
One of the best exercises for writing is starting your own blog. Creating a space where you can speak out your mind or write about things you’re most interested in can help you practice and be better in your craft.
However, blogging can be a daunting task especially if you’re just starting. All this information about getting your post noticed or ranking in the search results with the use of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) techniques make you want to take a step back a bit. It’s too technical for a start, and we totally understand that.
Here, we have a few tips for you to start out. Forget about SEO and keywords first. Let’s start with simple blogging tips and habits that can help you improve and build on a niche through writing.
It is that time of the year again. The end of March marks as one of those days when the world unites to take care of Mother Earth and bring forth issues about the environment for Earth Hour. That one event that dedicates an entire hour in turning the lights off to minimize electricity use and, thus, carbon footprints.
For others, they go the extra mile by not just turning off their lights, but other appliances as well such as their computers, television sets, and cooling or heating systems. Anything to consume as less power as possible.
This could be a downer for some, especially to those who have lots of tasks and activities which are dependent on electricity. But are these activities really necessary? Or can’t we really pause or take a break from them even for just an hour?
This Earth Hour, we at Rocket Social would like to give you ideas on what you can do during an hour with less-to-no electricity. Who knows? You would enjoy this hour more than you thought you would. So stretch out those legs, feel the comfort of your environment, and enjoy the night with just the power of fun and enjoyment.
Haven’t created a LinkedIn profile yet? We understand that. Maybe you never really saw the need to make one. After all, you update your resume regularly, you’re diligent in reaching out to companies, and there are online job search websites with their very own pre-formatted resume. So what do you need LinkedIn for?
It’s no question why some people don’t have a LinkedIn profile. To some, it’s just more cumbersome. Resumes are still the most convenient, popular option when it comes to employment reach.
However, technology has evolved and has affected every industry – including human resource. While some companies still accept your printed resume (some will still ask for it, really), but talent scouting and sourcing has gone online. This is where LinkedIn comes in handy for HR personnel.
With thousands and millions of talents that could qualify, it would be a whole lot easier for recruiters to do a quick search online and trim down their sources – and LinkedIn is the best place to easily find qualified individuals.
Not convinced yet? Rocket Social gives you 10 reasons to finally create that LinkedIn profile.
Looks like we’re all in it for a surprise from our beloved Snapchat! The social media platform has announced that they might possible launch a new feature soon. Soon enough, we’ll be seeing games in Snapchat.
Yes, you got that right. Games. In. Snapchat.
According to Cheddar, there have been talks that Snapchat is creating a whole new gaming platform inside the application itself. While this is not new for any social media application, Snap Inc. is looking into gaining back (or more) users to the app, and hopefully, additional revenue for the company.
While all of these are still plans at hand, here’s what we know and what we think of this move.
The social media industry has always been challenging when it comes to online marketing. There’s always something new that comes up and you’re never so sure if you want to spend time and effort in investing marketing forces there. Something comes up and dies down most of the time, right? And what’s left in the end are your usual staples: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
When a new social media platform called TikTok came out, you might have asked: should I consider this for an online marketing effort? TikTok is a short video social media platform. Yes, just like what Vine was.
When Vine officially signed off, people are looking for that short video format that they all love. Funny, witty, 6-second videos drove people’s creativity at a whole new different level. Somebody just needed to step in, and TikTok came to the rescue.
However, the entry of this new social media platform has now sparked debates in the online marketing world. Some online marketers are now considering what they call as TikTok marketing. But would this be worth it in the long run? Would it be there for the long haul? Or would it just disappear like all the others?
Let’s get to know TikTok and see why people are so crazed about it, and why it is confusing online marketing efforts recently.
