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.

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.

Traveling is always something that can produce a lot of instagrammable pictures. New place, new experiences, new posts!

When you travel, you’ll definitely have more posts than what you normally have on regular days. It’s easy to have some instagrammable posts if you are traveling with other people. You can ask them to retake the shots until you’ll have your post worthy shot.

But what is particularly challenging is when you’re traveling alone. Oh no! Does that mean that you’ll only be posting your selfies? Will your travel be one of those times where you wish you had an Instagram boyfriend to take your pictures?

Well, worry no more! Let’s take independence to a whole new level.

Traveling solo? No problem!

Learning to take instragammable pictures when traveling alone is something you can learn and be very good at.

So be worry free and bring back good memories with you because in this post, we will teach you how to create Instagrammable posts when traveling solo:

There a lot of things to be thankful for. But do we say thank you enough?

Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away. It reminds us of all the things we should be thankful for. For businesses, it is an opportunity to express gratitude to all the people who have been vital to its success.

In this post, we will be talking about how to make Thanksgiving truly meaningful for your business by saying thank you to everyone who contributed to its success through social media.

Saying “Thank You” is not a difficult thing to do and yet we don’t practice it often.

A simple “Thank You” can lighten up someone’s day. These two words can easily boost someone’s morale and it can motivate them further because you made them feel appreciated. This is what Thanksgiving is trying to remind us every time we celebrate the occasion.

Thank You might just be two words, but these two words are truly powerful.

In business, practicing gratitude can come a long way. Now it’s time to reflect, how often do you say thank you to people who have helped you with your business? We sure hope the answer is “very often.”

But in case your answer is a bit unfavorable, then it’s never too late.

This Thanksgiving don’t forget to say, “Thank you!” to everyone who contributed to the success of your business. And a better way to do that is through social media. It’s time to tell the whole world how much you appreciate these people.

Here’s how you can say thank you to those people and make Thanksgiving meaningful for your business through social media.

 

Bullies – they are everywhere. They never contribute a lot of good to the society and, most especially, the person they are targeting as well. Not putting a proper context on a single post can lead to people’s misunderstanding; thus, igniting harmful judgments. This still happens even if the post was of good intent.
 
Last week, a news report came out of a man who started a hate campaign against a Kerala student who was selling fish to make ends meet. Noorudeen Sheikh initially took photos of Hanan Hamid selling fish after her classes in college. He, then, broadcasted through Facebook live that Hamid is a fake after seeing her with superstar Mohanlal. Hamid said that she was working as a junior artiste in a film (aside from selling fish) to help pay medical bills for her ailing mother.
 
Sheikh’s accusations ignited negative comments about Hamid. They believed in the presumption that she was pretentious to get sympathy. Worse, they said all those without knowing the truth. Their judgments were based solely on Sheikh’s account.
 
This issue could have been avoided. The intervention of the police and the government helped a lot in minimizing harm towards Hamid. If not, she could have been attacked further. But why do we need to go through this measures? How damaging is social media bullying?
 

Last week, we discussed about the basics on creating your personal brand. Knowing what you’re passionate about, creating your online persona, your voice, and your look.

Now, we move forward in choosing the platforms that you should capitalize on. As we mentioned the last time, it would always be better to choose which social media platforms you should focus your campaign on. There’s nothing wrong with using them all. However, it might seem like you just want to get them all even if it’s not necessary to have them.

Each social media platform have their own strengths. Aside from popularity, their functionality should be your number one consideration.

So what are the strengths of these social media platforms and which niche would best use them?

 

Don’t you just hate spoilers?
 
How about people who just keeps on talking and posting about things you don’t even care?
 
Or those posts that are just too hypocritical for you?
 
We get it. Sometimes, there are just posts that we don’t want to see. Take the first example for instance; let’s say The Avengers: Infinity War.
 
Those who had the advantage of seeing it first keeps on blabbing about the movie, sharing news, reviews, and other online commentaries, without even the decency to consider those who haven’t seen it. Don’t you just wish you can snooze it all for a day or two?
 
Well, Facebook’s now got you covered with their new feature that allows you to filter your news feed based on keywords you don’t want to see.

how to use itv

 

Last June, Instagram just launched its new addition to their long list of features – the IGTV.
 
IGTV is Instagram’s long-video format platform that allows creators to upload up to one hour of video on their “channel” (as they call it). Currently, this is only available to select creators – those who have IG accounts with a huge following (Selena Gomez, Kim K, Kevin Hart, and Lele Pons to name a few).
 
Both creators and audience can access IGTV by tapping on the orange TV button in the app, or download a stand-alone IGTV app.
 
Once you click the button, it will instantly play content from people you follow or what the algorithm thinks that you would like based on the accounts you follow and your view behavior.
 
Anything is now possible with Instagram with this TV feature. And while it is still a young one, it would be best to prepare to dive into the bigger picture and plan out on how you can maximize IGTV for your brand.

Have you reached that point where social media is just too much for you?
 
We believe everyone has or have been or will eventually go through this phase. With millions and billions of people online (plus the dummy or bot accounts), social media is bombarded with content. No amount of filters would work. However you find a way to avoid people or content, it will somehow find its way into your timeline.
 
Plus, (and let’s admit it) there’s a lot of negativity online, too. Going through your feed is just one stressful task. You need to de-stress. Or better yet, detoxify.
 
If you’re not sure how to do it, we’ll give you a bit of a guide to follow.
 

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.
 
This is the type of marketing which taps people called an influencer – celebrity or not. This influencer would then post about your product or service depending on your terms and conditions as to how they post about it and how often.
 
Basically, it’s a cheaper but more efficient way of getting someone to endorse your brand.
 
But looking for an influencer could be tricky. Of course, one would like to go for people who are famous and has a huge social media following, but it could cost you a lot. Plus, it isn’t the only qualification.
 
Here are a few points you want to consider before getting an influencer (or two) for your brand.

In this digital age, businesses now engage with their customers online. You could barely find a business that is not online or in social media, especially those who have online shops.
 

Maybe you’re doubting if you’ll dive into the trend. After all, social media efforts take a lot of time.
 

But do consider this: social media platforms are free. And with your target market just within reach, maybe it’s something worth investing on.
 

So if you’re not yet on social media, you might want to consider these to finally decide and help increase your store sales.

Just a month to go and we’ll be halfway through the year.
 
If we talk about social media and online marketing, the past months were a blast. There were a lot of improvements and new features that really helped push forward businesses towards their goal.
 
But we all know that no business have done it perfectly. There would always be some setbacks, even questioning ourselves why isn’t it working?
 
There could be many answers to that question. For one, not one formula would fit every business. Every online marketing strategy would differ for each company.

Spring is here! And it’s one of the best season to take beautiful, colorful photos that would fit best in your Instagram feed. Especially those spring break selfies! Yey!
 
If you have an astounding IG reputation for good quality photos, now is the best time to step it up a notch. If you’re still starting to have a bit of ‘fan-base’ or following online, then give in to experimenting with your photos.
 
The best thing about spring is the natural light. Gone are the gloomy winter days. Take advantage of the light and sunshine and take awesome photos around you. Whether you want to take photo of people or environment – or even selfies – this is the perfect season.
 
But what’s an Instagram photo without a bit of fun, eh? Sure, #NoFilter sounds cool and takes a lot of skill. But there’s nothing wrong with playing around with your photos and edit them a bit, right?
 
Here are a few Instagram and VSCO filters and settings you can use for those beautiful Spring snaps!
 

get more facebook fans

 

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced last month that there will be changes in Facebook’s algorithm. Most specifically, with what the people can see in their news feeds.
 
According to Zuckerberg, they want people to see more of their family and friends in their news feed than ads and posts from pages. That is including business pages. And that speaks a lot for companies who relied so much on their Facebook marketing.
 
(Also read about Instagram’s new algorithm in Videos, Shopping, & More for Instagram this 2018!)
 
Obviously, this change is going to affect your business if you’ve been pouring a lot of money and effort on building up the number of followers. And this is the worst news for those who really PAID to gain followers.
 
But don’t fixate on the problem so much. All is not lost and just for naught.
 
If you know how to navigate around this new algorithm, you would still be able to target your audience. While it might not be the surefire way to do it (none of the Facebook Pages practices are, anyway) but it will somehow give you the helping hand.
 

use boomerang on instagram

 

Instagram’s Boomerang was one of the biggest trends in social media marketing last year. SM experts and gurus have predicted that it would still be one of the trends this year.
 
With the rise of video marketing’s popularity, Boomerang rides in on that category; since it’s not totally a video – and not a GIF, either.
 
Basically, Instagram Boomerang is a burst of shots stitched together to create a moving picture. Unlike GIFs that moves forward then loop back to the beginning, Boomerang moves forward AND back, then loop.
 
Taking creative Boomerangs would surely kick in some fun on your IG stories and posts; something that your audience would really love.
 
But how do you take creative Boomerangs exactly? Well, there’s really no exact formula but we could give you a few tips to start with.

It happens to the best of us. Personally, that is.
 
Creating a social media presence requires a lot of careful attention to details. Just one wrong move – a word, an image, a comment, reply, etc. – could spiral you to your downfall. Even your very product and service can create a spark and ignite worse issues.
 
We sure make a few blunders here and there, but what if t happens to your company’s online marketing? Would you be ready then?
 

It is the new year! And with the new year comes new trends in online marketing.

Most online marketing websites would suggest optimizing your social media accounts. And why not? Every platform is now a big thing in online marketing.

Instagram has grown and has become one of the most influential platforms to many users especially to generations X and Z.

Facebook is still in since most mobile users are on Facebook.

While Twitter has set a decline, LinkedIn is skyrocketing lately.

With this info in mind, what should you do for your online marketing efforts this 2018? Brace yourself for the new year and map out your social media marketing plan with these tips in mind.

Most of us think of Christmas as a tradition in relation to religion. It is a cultural celebration, yes; but with culture comes the religious belief of the majority.

 
While for Christians, this is a celebration of Christ’s birth, other religions don’t see Christmas that way. But that doesn’t mean they don’t celebrate Christmas at all.
 
There are many Christmas traditions that are not related to religious beliefs or practices. This season can still be celebrated by anyone.
 
So don’t worry about diverting your online marketing strategies for the holidays.

Long gone are the days that you have to personally walk in and submit job applications. For years, technology made sure that it would be convenient to both the applicant and the employer to find a perfect match. Job search websites came, then followed by social networking sites like LinkedIn which lets you create an online resume for recruiters to see.
