The internet took the world by storm and advanced digital technology to a whole new level. It provided us new ways to transact and do business. E-commerce was born, and people could buy and sell across the world from their computers.

We found a different way to interact and stay connected. Social media sites played a great part in all that. Almost everyone is on social media nowadays for one reason or another.

As you must have noticed, wherever people congregate physically or virtually, there is a potential for business. The social media players apparently know this, and use it to their advantage.

This gave rise to what is now officially tagged as social commerce. To put it simply, social commerce is a cross between social media and ecommerce. And the name rightly did justice to the merger.

Social Media Trends: Is Vero the Next Boom or Bust?

Posted by Jonathan Bales on May 24, 2018 8:30:00 AM

When someone becomes fed up with a brand's product or service, they often jump ship to a new brand that has better features. This happens all the time in several business industries but what about in social media? Will everyone jump on the most recent social media trends such as Vero?

Vero, a relatively new social media platform, is poised to steal the mantle from the "illustrious" social media front runner, Instagram. The creation of Vero, by Ayman Hariri, is spearheaded on the premise that they offer a format and set of features that are less restrictive than the likes of Facebook and Instagram. So does it measure up?

No Algorithms?

For the better part of 3 years Vero has flown under the radar at around 150,000 registered users or so, until just recently, when the app passed 3 registered million users and is continually climbing. The platform created by Vero looks to alleviate the issue of Instagram applying an algorithm to your social media experience by displaying chronological posts, not selling of personal data and the reduction in the amount of advertisement exposure. These have been some of the grievances that many users on Instagram and Facebook have been loathing ever since recent algorithm changes that were rolled out over the course of the last 2 years.

4 Points to Consider When Establishing Your Brand Voice & Social Media Personality

Posted by Jonathan Bales on Apr 19, 2018 8:30:00 AM

With over 2.5 billion social media users across the world, social media is seen as an integral medium that businesses and marketers feel must be utilized to reach customers. However, not all organizations on social media are experiencing success with thousands of followers and patrons among their social media accounts. This situation sheds light on the current landscape of social media and how many businesses are improperly approaching social media with an ill-advised strategy.

The idea of social media is almost a little too enticing for businesses to pursue, and how could it be ignored when almost every marketing agency and business blog is raving about how important it is to have a social media footprint. However, the underlying issue here that businesses face, is how they they operate in the realm of social media. The majority of businesses approach social media as another tool to help their businesses grow without understanding the makeup of how flourishing social media accounts work.

[Guest Blog] Opportunities & Dangers of Social Media for Business: Everything You Need to Know

Posted by Sarah Daren on Apr 10, 2018 8:30:00 AM

Social media is gaining traction as an essential marketing resource for every field and industry, including the restaurant business. Currently, younger generations represent the largest group of the digital population, and usage declines across the demographic spectrum as the age range rises. Approximately 90-percent of young adults use social media, and American seniors weigh into the social media mix at 35-percent. Although most of the population uses social media, it’s not enough to simply open a Facebook or Twitter account and expect patrons to find your establishment. An effective social media presence includes digital assets that are updated with complete and accurate information as well as a strategy that comprises interacting with target consumers regularly.

A Pew Research report reveals that the social media audience has expanded from an infinitesimal 5-percent in 2005 to nearly 75-percent of the population. As a result, social media has gained influence that rivals major media outlets like television and radio, an outcome that has led business experts and legislators to pay more attention the marketing resource. Despite this, social media is a powerful tool for reaching affluent consumers. Consumers with disposable income are more likely to take an interest in specialty eateries, making social media the ideal meeting ground to attract hungry clientele.
