Creat a LinkedIn profile now.

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.

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.

How many messaging apps do you currently have on your phone? Do you feel it is becoming too cumbersome maintaining all those? Don’t you wish messaging integration would be a thing? It would surely solve everything, don’t you think?

During the advent of social messengers, people have been crazy on the platforms they prefer. Some use WhatsApp, Viber, WeChat, etc. Then, social media platforms now allowed users to send private messages to each other. Facebook has one stand-alone in Messenger, while Instagram and Twitter have integrated messaging in their respective applications.

Given a plethora of choices, many people shift from one app to another to communicate to different people for different purposes. Facebook Messenger seems to be the easiest pick since you can now send messages even to people you are not friends with. Other choose Viber to share photos because, as they say, it doesn’t deteriorate the quality and resolution of the photos. And many other reasons for each app.

But as we said, it can be cumbersome to maintain all apps at once. Not only does it eat up storage or memory on your phone, it can draw in confusion when you have to contact people all at once.

Messaging integration seems to be the answer to this. And, luckily, Facebook CEO and Founder Mark Zuckerberg has thought about doing this.

Call-to-Action straight in your Facebook Stories? Yes, that’s a possibility now.

Facebook is trying to brew up something new for Facebook Pages out there, especially those who love to use Stories as part of their online marketing strategy. They are currently testing a call-to-action feature right straight in your business’ stories.

Currently, pages are only allowed to post Stories like everyone else – a simple promotion photo or short video. But soon enough, businesses can now push their customers to act (or react) to their advertisements right away. Through call-to-action buttons, online marketers and various businesses can now make their Stories more than just a display of promotional creativity.

This feature is something that advertising or marketing are looking for. Something that would boost the purpose of a Facebook Story. Not only does this change the game in online marketing, but it pose a new and exciting challenge in Story production.

First, let’s get to know what are the available call-to-action functions for now. Next, we’ll discuss how you can maximize these functions to help you boost your online marketing efforts.
