Sociables: A Social Media Roundup (November 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: Well it's November now - we're quickly approaching winter. But that doesn't mean we still can't enjoy all that pumpkins have to offer! This includes a boozy pumpkin milkshake, and wait for it... it's served IN a mini pumpkin! How crazy and festive is that? Stay tuned to the end of our blog for an incredibly simple recipe.
Yes, yes - it's true! You can now turn your Facebook and Twitter obsession into a career... or six! Go ahead, show your parents that technology is evolving and social media can now pay your bills time and time again.
We'll be honest with you - marketing isn't always easy. In fact, it's rarely easy! You have to be on top of the daily news EVERYDAY (yes, even weekends! Social media never stops). It's also important to constantly be improving marketing tactics - because efforts that worked last week, could quickly change tomorrow!

If you haven't noticed yet, Instagram is making it easy for businesses to advertise to the social media platform users. And not just with paid advertisements! Creative minds at these businesses make sure that the aesthetic and layout of their photos are high-quality and will increase engagement (which isn't easy to do!)
And to end off our list - for some fun! We know it's hard coming up with clever captions for your Instagram pictures. You have to be clever AND funny, and that's not always easy to do. These witty captions will cleverly portray your feelings every day of the week.
