LinkedIn Algorithm – How does it Work?

It used to be that you only add the contacts that perhaps can offer you something in terms of employment or people you have worked but I strongly  advise my clients against that practice nowadays. LinkedIn is all about networking and one of its most powerful tools is the connections one is able to make with other professionals of a variety of industries as well as the relationship he maintains and builds with them through his posts, articles and other interaction. So one might argue, “ok then, I might as well add as many contacts as possible to maximise the views of my posts or content in general. The more the contacts I have, the more the likelihood of my articles being seen by a greater audience. Well, it is not exactly that simple. Having spent quite a significant time studying and analysing some of the documentation put out by…

How to makes Ads less Ad Like”

I am not entirely certain why (or how) but I have ended up strangely reading more than 60 articles on Facebook this week which is more than 70% of my total article consumption. This was not a conscious choice as I went about reading my daily marketing news, technology and Social media updates but is a clear demonstration of how prevalent the platform has nowadays become in our everyday lives, hence also polarising interest in Digital Marketing circles online. I often come across Ads on my Social Media that genuinely are way too “adversarial” to have the desired effect. Maintaining a positive relationships between your audience and ads is crucial nowadays but equally quite difficult to achieve without the necessary knowledge and skills.

Choosing the right Social Media: Estate Agencies

What should you post? Where should you post it? Who should do the posting? How do you know if it’s working for your company? Social media marketing can be a great means of connecting with your potential customers as it allows you to portray your brand message, team spirit and unique personality and values in a fun, informative and engaging way that your website can never do. Nonetheless, managing your social media can also be expensive (to outsource), frustrating, confusing time consuming, costly to outsource and potentially damaging to your reputation. If you’re writing any kind of content – blogposts or articles – social media gives you a megaphone to amplify it, allowing you to reach huge numbers of people instantly. And even when you pay to distribute it, it’s still currently better value for money than any other advertising channel, bar none. However, managing your Social media shouldn’t be a chore but part…

As always, Facebook is constantly working on improving their platform and more importantly growing its revenue from their multiplicity of advertising options. Nonetheless, that constant evaluation of their platform also offer them insights as to the types of ads, promotions etc. that do not necessarily work as other.

Brands will no longer be able to convert Page posts like profile picture changes and place recommendations or profile pictures into ads any longer for example. Facebook announced, on Thursday the 24th of August, that it is curtailing the types of organic posts that Pages can convert into ads as it looks as they aim to make their ads more precise and…
