    Effective-Tips-on-How-to-Use-Instagram-for-Business-Purposes-1

    Instagram is one of the most popular social media these days. You are not using your smartphone or tablet enough if you are not using Instagram. Instagram is very popular among those who have iOS, Android and Windows phone. Instagram can be used for both personal and business purposes.

    The best thing about Instagram is that you can make your photos look like professional photos even when these photos were just taken randomly anywhere. With Instagram, you do not need to have good Adobe skills to beautify and edit your photos. You just need the filters that make editing pictures a lot easier than the usual. Just one click and you can already see how a filter can change the aura of the photo

    I don’t know about you, but I love infographics. I’m not talking about hastily put together images with some random stats to ride the infographic craze. I mean infographics that are heavy on the info, with some real meat to them.

    Recently, I’ve been trawling the interwebs for additional information on content marketing. Here’s what I found.

    I’ve got several go-to moves when I’m playing basketball. The crossover. The fadeaway. The tear drop.

    I’ve got several go-to moves when I’m writing social media updates, too. Title case. Text only. Signatures.

    I imagine you’ve got your own favorites, too.

    Combined, there are a litany of ways to compose, style, and organize a social media update, even in just the words we use in our updates. I’m always on the look out for new experiments to try with the way I write a social media update. My latest hunt turned up 71 fun ways. Let me share them with you.

    fight-marketing-trends-do-what-works

    Marketing best practices and tools are constantly changing and evolving so put your dukes up and be prepared to fight off those crappy trends that won’t work for your company. What’s that saying…. “well if they all jumped off a bridge would you do that too?!”
    Since marketing practices are constantly changing and new things are popping up here and there… by the time you notice a “trend” it is already too late. It happened and you missed it. Yet you may choose to implement the trend instead of focusing on the bigger picture –what is best for your company.

    the traditional promotional means, which she called boring. Instead, she simply posted a video featuring the new album cover and pictures of her with the caption “Surprise!” on Instagram.

    That was enough for Beyoncé, one of the best-selling music artists of all time. Within the two days of that post, more than 430,000 “Beyoncé” albums were sold on iTunes for
    $15.99 per download.

    Of course, the wildly popular album would have been a hot product no matter how Beyoncé chose to promote it, but the story is yet another testament to the power of social media, says marketing entrepreneur Robert Danard, CEO of Spriza, Inc., a social network company. “It’s no secret that the 18- to 34-year-old demographic is the most coveted one – they are the future of any product, and if you want to reach them, then you have to have a social media strategy,” says Danard, who started his career a decade ago by founding an early social media site.

    Anyone keeping even half an eye on media trends in the last few years will be aware of the terms ‘event television’ and ‘second screening’. Television has always been social, but the twenty-first century has seen social groups remaining connected around the world through technology. That places unique demands on broadcasters, but it also places demands on the fans.

    How can you join in the global discussions of a TV show if you can’t watch it live?

    Outside of sports or major cultural events, there are very few programmes that are simulcast around the world. That said, big shows are starting to get air dates in international markets within a week of the initial broadcast, and some of the big hitters (such as HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’) will get that rebroadcast within twenty-four hours.

    And then there’s [easyazon_link asin=”B00FAVRHBE” locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”actiocutprint”]Doctor Who[/easyazon_link].

    There’s something intriguing about wandering anonymously through the day, going wherever you want, doing whatever you want — no questions asked, no calls from the office.

    Too bad that rarely happens anymore.

    Thanks to social networks like Twitter, a worldwide broadcast of your every move and mood is just 140-characters away. We’ve come a long way since 2008, when many of today’s most tweet-happy users (myself included) complained about their fears of being followed and argued that the minutia of someone else’s life isn’t interesting enough to distract their attention.

    If you care about your company’s future, you must pay attention to emerging trends and get a head start on the next big marketing craze.

    The first businesses to use the Internet, social media, and other online tools for marketing gained huge advantages in fast-paced industries. (It will be a while before a company dethrones Netflix, Amazon, or Google from their top spots in their industries).

    The way people use the Internet changes with time, and it affects other forms of media and marketing. Here are four emerging internet trends business owners should keep an eye on.

    By now, most marketers understand the importance of [easyazon_link asin=”1482014092″ locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”actiocutprint”]social media marketing[/easyazon_link]; not only is it an inexpensive way to build a following and promote your brand’s content, but participation in social media could also become a major factor in the ranking algorithm for search engines like Google. If you’re like most marketers, you’ve focused on the “big three”: Facebook for the biggest audience, Twitter for the fastest updates and public profiles, and LinkedIn for the B2B business professionals.

    In addition to the big three, there are a number of other social platforms that have gotten attention: YouTube is the biggest and most popular platform for any video-based marketing, and Google+ is used often because—let’s face it—it’s a Google product, and they reward its users with better rankings according to correlation studies by Moz and SearchMetrics. But there are countless platforms beyond the most popular options, with hundreds of millions of users between them, that most marketers aren’t taking advantage of yet.
