@rachaelseda I love them! I think they're a great way to get people to participate in something your brand is offering. I've participated in a few of them by sharing some pictures. You should give it a try. Some brands offer really neat prizes! :)

Cool post, Rachael! I love Instagram and I think it's awesome that people are starting to use it more and more for business. What better way to show the visual appeal of your brand than putting up on Instagram which is strictly visual?  Thanks for sharing these tools!

How do you feel about the growing popularity Instagram contests? For example, "Share this picture with the hashtag #hashtag," or "Post a picture of yourself holding our product with the hashtag #hashtag."

Awesome post, Mack!  It sounds like she's really got the right idea.  I feel like that's how it should be with most brands--really focus on your current fans/clients, and go from there.  Obviously acquiring new customers is a necessity, but how can that happen if you don't have some sort of following to begin with?

 

But, when a rock star (or other brand) DOES get that new customer for the first time, how can they make sure they stay fans and keep coming back?

 

Super interesting topic.  I really enjoyed the read.

These are pretty interesting apps.  I've read up on a few of them, but I've never heard of Tweetwally or Perch.  Great post, and very helpful.  Obviously apps can make a difference for businesses because they're more convenient than even a mobile version of a website.  Do you see more apps like these becoming popular in the near future?

 @jedi_roach  @CatieRagusa I agree.  Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing!  Start with what you know, grow that, and then expand if necessary.

This was a really interesting way to put it, and a very helpful metaphor!  Creating social media accounts is only a small area of the battle, so why wouldn't you take advantage of a team of digital experts and support team?

 

Great post, Clive!

@pwerza Thanks for your comment! Brandon found his first few consulting clients at the beginning of the recession when he realized that he could put his knowledge about social media to use for other companies while he was using social media to promote the clinic. He said that customers began asking him how he was making it work in hard economic times, so little by little he began consulting until it grew into what it is today! But remember, he also said that it's not about the technology. Understand your market before you dive into every site there is. I hope this helped! Good luck with your consulting!

 @pwerza  @RankWatch  I'm glad you're trying BufferApp out and getting to know the program!  Both Hootsuite and Buffer have their own advantages for different functions.

 

Thanks for sharing with us :)

jcness,

 

Thanks for the update! I like BufferApp because it's so easy to use, and it hardly takes any time to set up your tweets each date (or even less often!).  I also love the idea that colleagues can join the fun an manage your buffer when you're unavailable.  I recommend trying it out!

Hey pwerza,

 

Great question!  I mainly use BufferApp as a content scheduler and in my opinion, it's better than Hootsuite for this. BufferApp buffers your posts into a predetermined schedule; whereas with Hootsuite, you have to define the post day and time for EACH post.

 

Hootsuite is great for other management tasks, but in my opinion, BufferApp is better for this specific task.
