Welcome to my Thursday feature. Here’s where I link three useful and interesting articles from excellent information sources that deal with social media and marketing subjects. As you know, changes are always happening in the world of social media. We have a lot to keep up with!
Video is all the rage in social media right now. It gets stronger engagement than other types of content. I’ve discovered, however, that my clients are not all that fond of seeing themselves on camera – and come to think of it, neither am I! Kim Garst of Boom Social to the rescue. Check out her article ‘How To Make Wicked Good Videos Even if You Are Camera Shy.’ She tells us that Facebook has already had 4 billion video views this year! Let her walk you through getting yourself on camera.
Let me quote you a statistic from Convince & Convert: at last count on Google, “there were 60 trillion indexed pages, which is double the 30 trillion from 2013.” How in the world will your content EVER get seen? Read ‘Winning the Lottery Is Easier than Finding Your Content’ for guidance on getting past all that noise.
I’ve said many times that Facebook is still the big gorilla in social media. You need to have a business page. For help on how to make your page and your business stand out, I suggest reading Rebekah Radice’s ‘5 Facebook Marketing Techniques to Get Your Page Seen.’ She says with a little commitment and planning, you can make new contacts daily on Facebook.
