Sociables: Social Media Stuff Our Team Is Chatting About
We've said it once, and we'll say it again. Social media - this industry we're in - is CONSTANTLY changing on us. New networks, new best practices and new algorithms are constantly popping up to blind side us social media professionals and kick us on our butts. So to keep our social feeds from failing, we have to stay super tuned in.
We have a Slack channel called #thingstomakeussmarter where we all share the most recent blogs and updates we find with big news. Here's the skinny on what we're talking about behind the scenes at Mad Media lately.

No, you don’t have to make sure your place has latest marble island. No, your walls don’t have to be super decorated. Get creative with these ideas to upgrade your pics!
BONUS! Outside of chatting about all things digital marketing, we often talk about how we can best communicate and work well together. As a remote team that works collaboratively on big clients projects - that’s vital. Employers, leaders, managers -- make sure to check out this read to help better lead your team:
As with any team, it’s important to know your players.
