Getting back to square one with your colleagues can sometimes be the best remedy for a company-wide rut due to being packed with work from the moment you step into the office, till you take that first step out at the end of the day.

Having the cream of the crop people on your sales team could be what sets you apart from everyone else in the industry! Let's say that you and all of your competitors are on the cutting edge of technology, making you all the best digital marketing choice on paper. But, if your sales team can build a relationship that is fruitful and lasts longer than any of your competitors... You win! It is very easy to forget the power of sales in a technology-driven world. The fact of the matter is, people still like people so until that goes out the door, the best men/ women will always win.

Social Media Marketing: Use These Social Media Tools to Boost SEO

SEO and social media marketing are two must-have components of any effective digital marketing. Any SEO expert would tell you that social media is too powerful a tool to ignore when it comes to branding.

Although social media marketing has been around for a while now, it has now become the most effective tool for increasing traffic and generating new leads. It is not uncommon to incorporate social media websites like Facebook and Twitter in a business development strategy nowadays. But to make these websites generate a reasonable amount of traffic, you will have to rely on various SEO tools.

These tools can enhance your social media efforts and SEO. SEO is the art of putting your content in front of the right people. It makes the content easier to discover so that it can be organically shared and re-shared on social media. Here are some ways to make sure that the right audience is seeing your content.

YouTube is Going Big Because it's NOT Going Home

Last month, YouTube launched its new music streaming service that lets users play music for hours on end for free. For just $9.99 per month, YouTube is offering a version of this streaming that lets you skip the ads and download songs... A little like Spotify Premium if you ask us.

This risky move into a competitive market has shown the world that YouTube is destined to stay one of the biggest names in video-sharing, even if it means throwing itself to the sharks with the hope of coming out alive and in one piece.

We give YouTube an A for trying!

The soccer-themed doodle that appears on Google's homepage will show you a live update of the scores, standings, news, brackets, and players of the World Cup matches after you click on it.
This is the type of user-friendly tactic Google is known for and every Digital Marketing agency should keep in mind when trying to figure out a fun, yet functional post for their customers/ users.

Social Media Marketing: Facebook News Feed Changes Brands Rank

Social Media Marketing: Facebook News Feed Changes Brands Rank

Facebook recently announced a radical change in its newsfeed algorithm. It’s going to rank posts by family, friends, and groups higher than news posts or general posts from brands and publishers. Most pundits are hailing this as a social media marketing game changer.

In his announcement, CEO, Mark Zuckerberg said the move was meant to encourage people to interact actively using the platform rather than passively consume posts that are fired at them.

Speculations are rife about Facebook’s agenda behind the move. Some say Facebook is coming off a rough 2017 where it faced harsh criticism after Russian linked actors placed fake news and ads and manipulated news feed to influence the public about U.S. presidential elections.

Facebook has already been seeing dismal organic traffic and users were found to be spending less time on the platform. In the wake of these revelations, Facebook’s revamp seems more self-serving than for th…
