“It’s getting harder. Instagram recently unrolled a new feature called Algorithm, which sorts your feed not based on chronological postorder like we’re used to, but based on several intricate factors. Some of these factors are influencer/audience engagement, relevance to your interests, and time spent viewing a certain post.”

“Content marketing, social media marketing, even email marketing…these are all two-way streets – if you allow them to be.
In other words, it’s not enough to ‘set it and forget it’ by publishing a blog post, scheduling a post on Facebook, or sending out an email blast; you need to actively engage with the members of your audience that respond to these campaigns.
In this way, you’re not simply promoting your product to consumers; you’re promoting your value to individuals who are in need of your services. In doing so, you tear down the wall that acts as a barrier between supplier and customer, and forge a more authentic relationship with the people who need you most.”

“A significant part of sporting events is the unpredictability. While it is important for advertisers to connect with users in real-time, a pre-planned strategy is just as vital for driving real paid social success. Run ads on Facebook for a few days leading up to the tournaments, switching assets often in order to stave off saturation. Once the competitions begin, use Custom Audiences to re-engage with users who have watched your pre-phase content and encourage them to tune in to the ads you will be serving during the events.”

“As part of your content marketing plan you should consistently share content that provides helpful insight into relevant trends and news on your topic/industry.
Creating concise, step-by-step ‘how-to’ content or share your best tips and tricks will not only help you achieve great engagement with your content, but over time will establish your authority or thought leadership. This is vital to develop a following or community that is eager and hungry for your content.”
