Say your goodbyes: it's now impossible to make "post by others" show on your Facebook business page timeline. We have a super popular post about how to make that possible, but it dates from a few years, and Facebook business pages have changed a lot since then. However, we still receive questions and comments about why the advice in that post doesn't work anymore; it's because you simply cannot do it anymore. The new Facebook business page has a completely different structure. But it doesn't...
This week was busy with dad stuff, but lots of other things happened on the digital marketing blogosphere. Let's have a look at this week's reading list. First, Facebook will let you review your marketing file and edit it. You know when you click "I don't want to see this ad"? You'll now be able to see what Facebook does with this information. They'll also let you choose what kinds of ads you want to see. Are you going to use this new function or do you just glaze over any and all ads? There's...
I've talked a little about hashtags before in relation to Instagram. But you also probably know that hashtags are also used widely on Twitter and, even though less often, on Facebook and even Google Plus. Even though hashtags come and go with the news and trends of the day, there are some that have been around for a while and are still widely in use today. Hashtags are an essential part of social media marketing, not only because they show that you understand the medium, but also because they...
As a digital marketing professional, I'm lucky to live in one of the most social (media) cities in Canada. Many of our social media influencers were among the first to take up Twitter as a community-building tool, and we have some of the foremost social media professionals this side of the Rockies doing their work in our beautiful city. It might be because social media work is rather flexible and can be done from anywhere; where else but in Victoria would you want to live if you had the chance...
Everyone tells you your small or medium sized business MUST be on the social media channels. There are a growing numbers of channels, each of them becoming increasingly important in its own way. So you've signed up for the four best-known social media channels: Facebook. Twitter. Google+. LinkedIn. You've written (or had someone else write) a blog post, and now it should be posted on all four channels. There! Done. Right? Not so fast... For small and medium businesses that don't...
Lent is a 40-day period during which practicing Catholics give up something--usally a bad habit like smoking or drinking--to commemorate Jesus' 40 days of fasting in the desert. But it's not just good for individuals. As business owners doing internet marketing, we can also develop bad social media habits. Want to give up something for Lent? Start by these less than desirable things we do on Facebook and Twitter...
Remember when event notifications used to be fun? When they were real invites to real events you actually wanted to attend? With people you liked? Not any more. If you’re like me, your inbox is flooded with invites to bottle drives in faraway lands, “concerts” at skeezy coffee shops and obnoxious theme parties at a friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend’s house. And to make matters even worse, if you don’t give a definite answer, you’re bombarded with notifications every time someone changes a detail...
Lack of engagement. Robotic presence. Potentially awkward timing. We all know your business can suffer due to excessive auto-posting, but what about your personal life? Ever thought about the consequences of spamming your friends with intimate details that may harm your reputation—both online and off? The world will know you’ve become a lazy sloth It’s great that you’ve started jogging. It really is. And it’s awesome that you’re broadcasting your ever-improving run times (and weight loss...
When done right, Facebook contests are a fun and relatively easy way to expose your business to the masses. But how do you do them right? As you may have noticed, the official Facebook promotion guidelines are an intimidating, confusing mess. It takes a great deal of time and concentration to figure out what’s going on, so most businesses end up ignoring the rules and running their contests willy-nilly. But what most business don’t know is that if Facebook catches on, or if one of their...
1000 Facebook fans for only $14! 10000 Twitter followers for only $150! Sounds like a heck of a deal, but when has it ever been a good idea to buy friends? It’s not like in the movies, where nerdy boy pays popular girl $1000 to date him for a month and they end up riding into the sunset together on a lawn mower. Fake online friends won’t love you. They won’t converse with you. They won’t spread word of your business and they won’t fulfill your dreams of Facebook success. Because they’re not...
