Two Huge Lies

Our culture has accepted two huge lies.
The first is that if you disagree with someone's lifestyle, 
you must fear them or hate them. 
The second is that to love someone means you agree with 
everything they believe or do.
 Both are nonsense. 
You don't have to compromise convictions
 to be compassionate. -Rick Warren
Hate or Love.
It's your choice.

Facebook Promoted Posts

I've noticed more posts this week about Facebook starting to charge business pages fees for posting.
With the recent IPO of Facebook, there are a lot of rumors and speculation about what is going to happen now that it has gone public.
“Facebook is a free service, and we use ads to support that free service” says Elizabeth Diana, communications manager at Facebook.
At this point in time, the only charge that a business page will incur from Facebook is if it chooses to place an advertisement on the network or use its ‘promoted post’ option. FB has been testing this option along with few others in New Zealand.

Facebook has a unique way to target users for advertisers, because they have so much valuable information about who we are & what we like. You know that half of us use the network every day. FB Ads & Promoted Posts can be targeted based on any combination of location, language, education, work, age, gender, relationship status, likes & Interests.
Businesses using the Promoted Posts option to have posts show up on more news streams.
By default, Facebook only shows you items in your news feed that are from friends that you are actively interacting with or posts that have gotten a lot of likes or comments by your friends (the definition of their ‘Top Stories’).
Based on this approach, Facebook’s data suggests that the typical profile post typically only reaches 12% of your friends and they are working on ways to allow more important posts to reach more friends.
Promoted Posts allows business pages to have posts bypass the normal algorithm and show up on more new feeds of their fans, which means more people will likely see it.
So Biz Page Owners it's up to you to pay to promote. Questions on if you should promote your posts? Contact us today.

Social Media Team Approach

Representing a company externally carries a lot of power & responsibility. Most companies look for  communication skills,self starter, business/marketing knowledge, understanding of company. Something that is overlooked is management skills, navigating politics, negotiating skills & excellent client communications.
Something that we consider paramount when working with clients on social media marketing is turning the role upside-down, focusing on integrating social media throughout their organization. We drive the campaign of the company, per the CEO's vision without being one voice, but rather having the team members create the overall voice at all company levels. 

For complete success we must ensure all company profiles are claimed, optimized, promoted & managed. We want to create invaluable intimate industry & company-specific knowledge. This distributed approach to content creation gives you greater flexibility to respond to critical issues & opportunities. Plus we stay on top of the latest social media tools, trends & tactics.
Start rethinking your current social media strategies. If you’re lucky you may only need to refocus your current team members. If you don't have this person(s) in place we would be more than happy with an opportunity to elevate your company today.
