What is Meerkat?! And should you be using it?
Meerkat is one of the newest Social Media platforms - a live stream program connected to Twitter. A mix of SnapChat, Twitter and Webinars with the exclusivity of LiveStream that cannot be repeated, replayed or watched later.
Now how does this affect your marketing? It allows you to engage face-to-face with your potential clients, let them know the real you, make new friends, and engage with your followers. Users can send you messages as you film your video, and you can reply in real time.
Social media has always been about engagement, and building relationships, and this has become much easier with this incredible platform - Even the creator is still unsure as to whether this truly will be the next big thing - But I have a feeling it's going to have a big impact on the marketing world!
So how can you use this for your business?
- Showcase your day to day life
- Host Q&A's
- Run Tutorials
- Introduce people to your favourite friends and places
- Engage with new clients
- Entertain your followers with your quirky-ness
Make sure you do two things - Showcase yourself, people want to know the real you! And make sure you provide them value. That could be entertainment value, or educational, but ensure your videos are worth watching, sharing and most importantly coming back to!

Ever wished you could get your product in the hands of the illusive influencer? But don’t know where to start, how to know who to trust, or what a good price is?
Let me introduce you to my new obsession
Keeping your Facebook page up to date is probably one of the most difficult and complained about parts of having a business. It's one of the first to be left behind and I know for a fact something we all feel guilty about!
So what can you do about it?
One of the core elements of marketing is the split test. You hear people talk about how you need to test and measure a campaign, but how exactly do you do that?
Learn how to use Facebook's Audience Insights to create new audiences, learn more about your target market, and create better content.
Dear Instagram Users,
Stop using Auto-Comment Bots.
You may have heard that Facebook is changing their algorithm. Again. And to be honest they will probably do it again. But, I'm happy about it. Want to know why?
Because the algorithm ensures that the best possible content is seen in people's newsfeeds. More than 30 billion pieces of content are created on Facebook each month - can you imagine if all the content shared in your network was shown on your newsfeed?
