Sociables: A Social Media Roundup (January Edition)
Working in social media is HARD. You can’t rely on just your trusty college degree to get you through with wild success. This is a very unique field, where the rules change daily. What was best practice yesterday may not be today. How people consume content changes all the time. Hell, there could be an entirely new social network dropped on the world at any given moment and if you really want to be a rockstar at your job, you need to be know about it, try it and understand it – almost immediately, so you can know if it’s the right place for your clients to be. So how do you accomplish this great feat of relentlessly staying up to date? Well, you have to read… A LOT. Lucky for you, social media gurus (such as ourselves) love to write about this stuff, so it’s pretty easy to get your hands on the deets. (You can just follow us on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn for a steady feed of it all–real time.) To be even more helpful (it’s just in our nature), we’ve decided to round up our top performing content from this past month for you – right here and now.
So sit back, grab yourself a cocktail (let’s be honest, you deserve it–you work hard) and get up to speed, Rockstars.
NEW RECIPE: New year, new health-kick. Well... hold on. Let's wait until NEXT weekend. We need time to recover and get back to ground 0 - and that means little to no drinking and prepping yourself for your resolutions... because everyone needs a prep week! Plan your exercises and schedule your week out with a vodka-espresso cocktail! And besides, the gym will be PACKED will resolution-minded people - wait a week or two (...or three) before heading over yourself and instead sip on a few of these cocktails. Stay tuned to the end of the blog for a simple recipe!
Happy 2017! With a new year comes new... well, everything! Goals, resolutions, and even marketing trends. If you don't know where to start with your 2017 marketing planning - check out this handy tip! (You won't regret it.)
Content marketing is nothing new to us. We all know how to write blogs and different pieces of content - but your efforts won't matter if you don't know how to measure it! This snazzy infographic will help you track and measure the metrics that matter.
In with the new, and out with the old. 2016 was a great year, but lets be honest - it wasn't flawless. There were definitely some social media blunders, and well - you'll just have to see for yourself...
I don't know about you, but one of my New Year's Resolutions is to get (and STAY) organized! And luckily, our phones are already ALL over that with hundreds of apps made to specifically keep us organized and ready to conquer the world!
Shocked? We're not! One of our favourite social media platforms reached 600 MILLION users and it's still growing! Just think about it - you're 1 in 600,000,000.
And now for the new year's drink you've been waiting for: Vodka-Espresso Cocktail! (Recipe from: www.delish.com)
1oz premium vodka (or tequila if you're feeling wacky)
1oz cold espresso
1/2 oz Tia Maria
1/2 oz Kahlua
Pour ingredients into a shaker filled with ice. Shake & strain into a martini glass (or three shot glasses).
Optional: rub the pith of an orange along the rim of each glass. Dip rim into cocoa powder spiked with a dash of cayenne pepper; and tap glass to remove excess.
