It’s that time of the year again!

With Christmas just around the corner, we’re sure that people have started writing down their Christmas wishlists.

This season is one of the most awaited season for the whole year. It’s a time when we would share a hearty meal with our family and be thankful for all the blessings we received all year round.

As a way of showing gratitude, it has been part of our culture to give gifts to our loved ones during this celebration.

However, this special occasion brings along with it overcrowded places and long queues since everyone will be busy buying gifts. Despite this, many of us brave these places and queues just to make sure that we make our loved ones feel special.

However, with the development of technology, we are now offered an alternative solution. To avoid the holiday rush, more and more people have been turning to online shopping for a hassle-free Christmas gift buying.

With this opportunity, this is your chance to beef up your social media accounts to attract more clients to visit your page and purchase your products.

We have consolidated five simple ideas to give your social media account the Christmas spirit.

Technology has developed rapidly over the past years. From buying bulks of encyclopedia to get the information you need, technology made it possible to get your answers with just a few clicks.

However, development did not stop there because we are now witnessing a rise of yet another technological revolution – the voice search. If you think that getting answers with just a few clicks is fast enough, something made it better. With voice search, you can now get your answers without using your hands.

Each year, more and more people are getting comfortable using voice search. Voice search might have been unimaginable in the past because doing it might make you appear like you are talking to yourself. And talking to yourself has an attached stigma which is that of a mental health problem.

That’s not the case anymore. According to the recent statistics, more and more people are now using voice search especially with the convenience of AI powered virtual assistants like Siri, Alexa, Cortana and many more.

Therefore, it is important to ask: How will this new technological development affect your business?

In this post, we will outline the things that you need to know about voice search: from the statistics on the use of virtual assistants to understanding the characteristics of voice search and the different SEO strategies you can use to fare through the voice search revolution.

Business advertising used to be very expensive during the times when popular media platforms were newspaper, radio and television. It was quite impossible for small businesses to publish a business-related advertisement because the rates were not affordable.

But with the advent of the internet and social media, businesses (small or big) are given the chance to promote their products.

One of the most popular and viable platform for business advertising is the social media giant, Facebook. With billions of users around the globe, your audience reach can be limitless (theoretically).

If you’ll take time to observe your Facebook account, you can see your business minded friends are already taking advantage of the platform. For instance, one of your friends might have posted some of her pre-loved clothes for sale or you might be seeing posts of another friend promoting her baked products.

In cases where you’re looking at short term business, Facebook can be very helpful. You sell products and promote it without spending a dime. But if you are looking at a long-term and a more sustainable business, that’s not necessarily the case.

If you want to maximize the potential of Facebook as a marketing tool, then it is a misconception to think that you don’t have to spend money for it.

Let’s take the case of Julia who decided to stop working full time to focus on selling her baked goodies online. She posted pictures of her items in a Facebook Page she newly created for her business. She even set the privacy setting of her posts to public, so it can be easily shared and will be easily viewed.

She didn’t want to spend money, so she invited her immediate family and friends to her business account.

But it is important to ponder on the following questions: Was she able to reach her target audience? Was she able to maximize the potential of Facebook as a marketing platform for her business? How can she set herself apart from other online clothing stores? How can she draw more followers or more clients to her Facebook page?

Influencers for Your Business

 

Getting an influencer to represent your brand has been an important thing for most brands lately. This is called Influencer Marketing.
