Social media trends 2015

Social media trends 2015

It’s in with the new and out with the old this 2015 as we explore the anticipated social  media trends of the year 2015. Is vlogging still cool? Does Google+ actually have a chance in this competitive and entertaining world of social media? Is SEO really that important here? All these and more will be answered so stay sharp and take notes because we’re going on a trend analysis.

Is it time to ditch the book? More specifically, the Facebook?

As we all know, Facebook has long been sitting on the throne of popularity and engagement since it basically pushed MySpace and Friendster into the ditch of the forgotten. It has been a leading choice not only for connecting with your close friends and family but for business strategies as well.  

However, it seems the tides of fortune are beginning to shift and has unveiled new contenders for the most coveted throne. Visual medium sites like Instagram, Pintrest and Snapchat are fast gaining new users while Facebook seems to have reached a plateau and started to look unpopular to this current generation.

Google+: The amount of negatives is too high on this one

It has long been foretold that Google+ will most probably not amount to much. However, despite that, there are advocates and preachers doing their best to keep it alive. Unfortunately, despite their best efforts, that rather morbid bit of prophecy seems to be on the road of fulfilment.

In fact, it has been foreshadowed by the departure of their chief evangelist Vic Gundotra as well as the failings of Google Authorship which could possibly lead Google+ into the ditch of the forgotten where the fallen social media sites lay at rest.

My phone is my life.

Smartphones with screen sizes of 4.7 and over are no longer a rarity and are on the fast track to being a commodity. So now, mobile users can easily access their internet accounts and are more prone to stay on the phone rather than the computer or laptop. This means mobile phones are starting to level up from being a secondary channel to a primary one.

Therefore, it you’re planning to make a site, a blog or anything viral. Make sure that it is mobile friendly.

Give me a signal.

As we all know, social media has been fast dominating the world with its trends and entertainment making it a very important influence in how we do things. Add this along with the nice healthy growth of the online marketing ecosystem and you get Google getting a dependency issue with social media signals for their SEO that used to be a different field all together.

Now, it seems the worlds of social media and of SEO are on the prospect on merging because of Google’s recent choices and actions.

To answer the previous question, of course, it’s still cool!

Vlogging and YouTube has become a very large part of our online surfing lives. This is especially true for those within the age range of 18 to 54 years old which if you think about it, is a pretty big reach with lots of engagement potential.

It has opened up a different ways to infiltrate the market because these present a more genuine and personal approaching to things making it less fake and more like an honest to goodness suggestion. Famous YouTube stars are like a landmine of exposures and advertisement, and only a fool would deny that.

It’s time for B2B World Domination.

Unlike Facebook who is currently at a possible standstill, LinkedIn still holds its reign over the business to business (B2B) social network and will most likely still be able to keep its position this 2015. In fact, an estimated percentage of 88 of B2B marketers are already using it with the numbers still growing. Also, its publishing platform sets it apart from other social media sites making it more unique and catered to its own audience.

Keep out.

Personal privacy has always been and still is a battle for social media. Especially with jerks who like to use their hacking skills for evil. No one likes their privacy being divulged into the world which why posting things in social media sites has always been a bit of a risk if you don’t want the wrong things being seen by the wrong people.

With these threats to personal safety and privacy, social media sites have devised their own ways of keep people out. For Ello, it took on an advocacy to its users that they are not products and that the company would never sell its user data for money.

In the case of Snapchat, Whisper, Telegram and the like, they allow their users to chat or converse with their friends privately as well as having the ability to remain anonymous while conversing with people you don’t really know.

And there we have it folks, the social media trends of 2015 to keep you updated and alert of the trends to come.

No more teens on Facebook?

No more teens on Facebook

“Pst, did you hear? Word on the street is that Facebook is going downhill. People are deactivating left and right… It has turned into this hive of stalkers and losers that seem to get off on trolling and ruining other people’s lives… Join the cause, dude! Facebook is gonna be the next Friendster.” Okay, the aforementioned statement is pretty much a much exaggerated scene of what happens to be extracted from a person with a hyperactive imagination and needs to set some facts straight unless you want a case of libel or slander. So are there no more teens on Facebook?

No, Facebook is not going to be the next Friendster.

However, there is a kernel of truth that can be taken from this over-the-top statement. In fact, one could say that this social media giant has been experiencing a serious decline in popularity as shown by the influx of people opting to leave and deactivate their Facebook accounts.

That’s right folks, Facebook is not as cool or hip as it used to be.

“Oh, those are just old folks who can’t get the hang of it. Can’t teach an old dog new tricks, they always say.”

Wrong.

It should be clarified or rather, specified that this certain group of people who are leaving the comforts of Facebook are in fact teens. You read that right, according to the study done by iStrategyLabs in 2014, the youths of today with ages ranging from 13 to 17 in the US are flying the social media coop which caused Facebook a 6% drop.

“Oh, come on. It’s just a measly six percent! That can’t really mean much, could it?”

This is where things get a bit iffy. In a layman’s point of view, this is just a small easily recoverable percentage. But if we are talking about the big boys, this ‘measly’ six percent could amount to a larger loss than it appears.

Try and think of millions.

Yes, the possible loss is that big. But hey, this is only an estimate, maybe they really didn’t lose much after all. No one can really say how much was lost except for the people concerned. But back to the issue at hand, Facebook as a social media site is not getting much of the audience and reach it used to have.

“Okay, so it’s not as popular as it used to be. It’s a fad. What comes up, must come down.”

Well, not exactly. As mentioned before, six percent may or may not be that much of a deal but here’s the thing, unlike Facebook, its competitors like Twitter and Pintrest are experiencing the exact opposite.

Yeah, this is pretty much a very hard blow to the gut where Facebook’s concerned.

In fact, in using the same age group, it was noted Twitter had a 2% increase of social media users, from 46% at 2013 to 48% at 2014. Pintrest also garnered a raving response of 40% in a survey asking if it was safe and trustworthy as well as it being enjoyable. Facebook not only got a decrease of users but just got 9% of its users claiming that it is a safe and trustworthy site, most even said that Facebook is not as fun as it used to be.

“Whoa, so it Facebook gonna go poor or something?”

No, it’s not. There is a silver lining to this rather grim story. I’m sure you are all familiar with Instagram and Whatsapp. These are one of the most popular apps to date and shows no sign of decline as of yet. Why am I talking about these two? Well, some of you may not know this but the Facebook Corporation owns these two apps and as of now, unlike their social media site, a large influx of teens is gravitating to these two apps.

So if you think about it, these two pretty much help compensate for the loss of popularity as well as income.

Redesigning your website – what really matters check-list

Redesigning your website

You know, ads are like the face of the company. They’re technically that first few things that will actually draw a consumer’s attention towards your product, and whether we like it or not we need to put our brains to work and come up with something pleasing and catchy. It’s a mind-racking process of edits and revisions until you get it right. Believe it or not, it’s the same thing with websites. Your web design is literally the face of your company. If your consumers don’t like it then you’re in for a very bad time. But no worries, I’m here to help by giving you a basic guide on redesigning your website.

Strategy and Planning: Your keys to success

As we all know, the glorious combination of good strategic planning can yield us unparalleled results of success. Here’s the thing though, we can’t all be strategic geniuses that have the capability to analyze the flow of things and magically come up this awesome plan and design to ramp up the income.

But, we can improve ourselves and lessen the percentage of error. How?

Step One: Know what you need to do. You need to know which part of your site that needs a bit of tweaking and the part that’s just fine the way it was. Take note that not all consumers appreciate you deviating from the standard operating procedures that they have grown used to. So you might want to reconsider changing the positions of certain buttons.

Step Two: Establish your goals and objectives. This is a particularly essential step in your way to success. We all have that general goal to increase our sales and expand our reach but we need to be more specific. In the place of starting your opening questions with what, use how much instead.

How much of your sales will increase?

How much people do you intend to reach?

You need to give out numbers. An estimated range and time frame for you accomplish. Be specific and realistic with your goals.

Step Three: Analyze and plan. After everything, you need to go back to your numbers and analyze the situation at hand. This is where all the data and notes from Step One come in. You need to see if the wanted changes would be a good thing or something completely unnecessary. This is where everything comes together and where you can easily tailor your next move for the best result.

It’s all about connecting the dots.

Extra Tip: Use tools like Google Analytics, Alexa and Topsy to keep you from going insane with all the numbers, flow charts and percentages.

Consumers: The people who are always right

Every strategy should be tailored to your product and audience – with special emphasis on the latter. Whether we like it or not, our consumers have more say on our design and content than us. By getting to know who our consumers are, we are more likely able to provide things that are more catered to their liking.

Do not forget, the customer is always right.

Appearance and Functionality: Yes, it really does matter

In terms of appearance, I can tell you that there is no correct or wrong method for web design in terms of appearance. Why? Remember the consumers and how we are technically catering and modifying our site to suit their fancy and how everything would basically plummet if we don’t?

Yeah, that’s why.

But here are some basic tips to keep in mind:

  1. Have a clean simple finish. Minimalist designs are usually ideal for this kind of thing because we want to draw attention towards our product and content. We do not want anyone getting distracted or have pain while being on the site.
  2. Functionality thumps aesthetics, always. People won’t really care that much on layout unless it’s is that glaringly displeasing to the eyes. They will appreciate functionality and content more. They will more likely stay on a site that loads faster than a pretty one that puts sloths to shame.
  3. Make it sharable. Social media plays a large role in marketing. And in this day and age where everyone likes to broadcast and share their lives to the world, it would be pretty handy to have those share buttons on your page.
  4. Keep your content. Do not compromise your content. Do not cut corners. This is what keeps your consumers following. This is what keeps them loyal and interested. Lose this, and you’re done.
  5. Personalize. Keep it real. Keep it you. Make your brand stand out by giving it a unique quality that makes people more interested.

There you go, a basic pack for your web designing needs. Use it wisely.

How customer support can grow your sales

You’d be surprised how many businesses view customer service as unimportant. But the fact is, customer service is much more crucial to success than you’d think. Not only can it improve your impression on the public eye, but it also has the power to greatly increase your business’ profits. So how can you ensure your business is providing excellent customer service? More than just the standard advice of ‘be human’, or ‘listen’, here we’ve assembled a list of some very easy-to-follow tips that will make sure your customer support will cause your sales to soar.

 1. Assume Favor Returns

Remember the phrase ‘do unto others as you’d have others do unto you’? Well in a way, this same concept is used in nearly every human interaction, including that of customer service. An experiment involving restaurant waiters recently examined this: whenever a waiter brought candy to the table along with the bill, tips went up. And when candy was brought a second time, the tips increased even more.

We can apply this same fact of human interaction to customer service. If we offer nice things to the customer, they’ll return the favor and stay loyal to the company. Try offering the customer an ebook or free credit to their account, something that would surprise them (without breaking the bank).

2. Go the Extra Mile

It is common to think that the most successful customer support only requires the friendliest and most delightful of employees. However, one survey of over 50,000 customers showed that the most important thing to a customer is when the support lowers the number of steps the customer has to take. With all the resources your customer support has on hand, this can be an incredibly easy tip to follow. To apply it, just ask: what steps can I remove to solve their problem faster? If the customer needs to first fill out a registration form, do it for them. If the customer needs to return a faulty product, send them a return shipping label. It’s details like this that your customers will remember, making them less hesitant to use your products in the future.

3. Send Handwritten Letters

In this day and age, handwritten letters are really only sent by loving grandmothers and little kids without a computer. So imagine the reaction if your customers receive a handwritten note from a member of your customer support? The support team at Stride tried this, and had amazingly positive results. Customers felt a personal connection to the company, which of course led to both increased loyalty and profits in the long run.

4. Throw Out the FAQ’s

At this point, a FAQ page is simply standard for a business to have online. But helpful as they are, they just don’t make sense for company productivity. Here’s why: say there’s one specific problem within a business. In the typical scenario, all the customers facing the problem will consult the FAQ page, fix their problem, and say nothing at all about the issue to the company. Now if you remove the FAQ page, the company directly gets to hear about the issue and realize how big of a problem it is with customers. According to that, the business can then decide to take action and ultimately fix the issue, preventing customers from ever again having the same problem. Makes sense, right?

5. Track Customer Stats

Every business has those customers who sign up for the long-run, and then those that sign up for 10 minutes and completely forget about the whole thing. One way to try and avoid this second pesky group is to keep track of customers’ number of logins, and length of time spent on the site. One study found that if you record and group these statistics over 30 days, you will find a list of people in each of those two groups. Then, for the customers who seem to have forgotten your business, send out a friendly email from customer support. It was especially useful when the email offered advice, or even a personal Skype help session, to the customer. Never forget: your customer support is human, make every effort to prove this to your customers!

How to AB test without hurting your Google rankings

How to AB test without hurting your Google rankings

In life, there is such a thing as balance. There is always an up to a down and a ying to a yang. There is the inevitable presence of negatives within the positives in the things we do. Take AB test for example, sure it’s a good way to experiment and test our web designs and strategies to gain a wider scope and increase our sales. In fact, one could almost say that split testing is a necessary endeavor one must go through if you want to stay on the online business. But here’s the thing, we can’t really say split testing goes to be of little consequence. There are certain disadvantages in split testing that has a tendency to hurt our Google rankings, which as we all know can be quite vital in terms of audience reach and boosting our sales.

But, what if we manage to keep the advantages and taper the disadvantages to a certain degree that it would not hurt our rankings too much. Here are some tips to start you off.

Tip One: Spiders are friends, do not filter!

Here’s a question. Do you still cloak your content? Do you still have the tendency to filter out the spiders when you’re doing tests?

You do, do you?

Well, stop right there!

Filtering out the spiders and using the ‘user-agent’ code is such an arcane task and not really recommended because Google prefers to see things that way users see it. So no, do not make a magical doorway where Google gets to see what you want it to see.

This filtering method is usually common amongst the older versions of split testing tools therefore, just simply deactivate the features that does the redirecting and filtering. That way, you can avoid being demoted in the rankings by the big bad spiders.

Tip Two: Thou shall not pass, Google!

Okay, here is where we get a bit torn. We want to show Google our pages but we do not want it to index the wrong one. Therefore, the issue is not in the terms of openness but more along the lines of it being misunderstood.

Worry not, I have a solution.

The first thing you do is to find out what Google is allowed to see. You can do this by accessing your ‘robots.txt’ file, which basically gives you a quick generalized rundown on the guidelines on what and what-not to access.

Now, some will put up with it like the good little spiders they are. Others will not.

You can remedy this dilemma with the use of password protections and other blocking alternatives that won’t damage your rank.

Tip Three: Stop. Wait. Do not delete!

One of the most common errors a person makes when split testing is deleting the less effective page. Now, this is an understandable action to do. After all, this design or strategy is really not reeling in that many customers to your product so it is only within the bounds of common sense to just be done with it, right?

Wrong.

Why, you ask?

It’s because despite it performing poorly in a statistical point of view, you must keep in mind that these pages did manage to catch other people’s attention. This means will have an untapped market and on the process, lose a percentage of prospective customers who will end up getting the ‘404 error’ page instead.

And nobody likes that, especially Google.

Therefore, in the place of deleting those ineffective pages, you should just do some redirecting or overwriting instead. That way, you would not lose those prospective customers these pages actually managed to catch.

And there you go my fellow split testers, some basic start off tips on how to lessen your burdens when it comes to split testing. Hope this helps, good day.

Facebook at Work is launched, just not for everybody

Facebook at Work is launched

On January 14th 2015 Facebook unveiled their new app that the company promised months ago “Facebook at Work”.

The app is here to rival LinkedIn and make us spend even more office  time on FB than we already do.

Preview of the Facebook at Work app is already available on iTunes

This office-focused app for the web, Android, and iOS for the time being will only be available to a limited number of companies involved in a small pilot project. According to FB the app is still in the early stages of development. The app looks and feels like the Facebook that we are all used to, but apparently there will be no ads in the “Facebook At Work”

“We’re putting the app into the app stores so that we can begin testing the product,” said Lars Rasmussen, the engineering director at Facebook, head of the project.

It seems that Facebook has already been running a few tests of the “At Work” app to a tiny selected number of partners across the globe. Initial audience for the app is companies that have 100 or more  employees.

There are still more questions than answers but we will keep you updated on the matter.

How to make more online sales after the holiday boom is over!

more online sales after the holiday boom

During the holiday season, people don’t act like they normally do. We are more generous, eat more, drink more, and most importantly, spend more. This is, of course, a dream come true for marketers and business owners.The only problem is on January 1st: when we plump and hungover people finally come to our senses. After the holiday boom, sales consistently take a nose-dive as consumers suddenly go to extremes to limit their spending. So how can you survive the holiday boom aftermath without going out of business? If you follow these practices, you’ll be sure to make just as many online sales after the holiday boom is over as you did before New Year’s.

 Use Your Greatest Weakness

This first tip is the most important: use the New Year spirit of fulfilling resolutions to your benefit. At this time of year, everyone wants to either get into shape, gain more control and organization in their life, or start a new hobby. All three of these things just so happen to be perfect opportunities to market! Consider what your business supplies, and out of that try to figure out what would sell to people eager to turn their lives around. The sales of exercise equipment, protein bars, musical instruments, cabinets and drawers (for New Year’s cleaning!) all should take a significant spike at this time of year. Focus your marketing on these types of items, and your online sales are off to a good start.

Release Something New

Most marketers have pulled out all the stops during the holiday season, only to finally take a break during January. How can you survive this? Set your business apart from those staying quiet and use this opportunity to release a new product. Not only will the customers’ attention go back to you instantly, but your competition will most likely be still recovering from the holiday boom.

The only downside to this is, you’ll need to start planning for the new product release during the already busy holidays. However, if you start this project early, say in October, you’ll be more than prepared to survive the holiday sales depression.

Have Yet ANOTHER Sale

If you thought tip #2 was painful, I imagine this one will make you cringe even more. But the cold hard truth is, if you want your online business to thrive rather than plummet after the holidays, this drastic action needs to be taken. So, get your employees ready for an after-holiday sale.

The easiest one to pull off is simply a clearance of all your holiday items (customers love clearance sales). You could also try offering free shipping, discounts for bulk purchases, or even throwing in a free gift for being such loyal customers.

 Use the Email Addresses

If you’ve done the holiday season right, that means by now you’ve collected a fairly decent list of customer email addresses that you can now use as a marketing tool. These people, most of the time reluctantly, have given you their email address and will most likely forget that they did within a month. So jump to it! Remind the customers of their business with you, and use the above three tips to get them to come back and purchase even more.

Keep Going!

It’s easy to get discouraged this time of the year, and accept the fact that your sales just won’t be as high during the new year months. But this is not the right attitude! Keeping your attitude positive and working just as hard as you did during the holiday season is what is going to save you from plummeting sales. Your customers are still out there, after all, you just need to remind them that you haven’t given up.

New Calls to action on facebook Pages

New Calls to action on facebook Pages

Facebook just introduced new feature for FB Pages: Calls to Action

Pages are an important destination for people on Facebook and the company is looking for new ways for people to interact with businesses through them. On 7th January Facebook announced a new call-to-action feature that will help Pages drive business objectives.
Designed to bring a business’s most important objective to the forefront of its Facebook presence, call-to-action buttons link to any destination on or off Facebook that aligns with a business’s goals.
Page admins can select from a group of call-to-action buttons — like Shop Now or Sign Up — to add to the top of their Page.
The seven calls to action available are:
  • Book Now
  • Contact Us
  • Use App
  • Play Game
  • Shop Now
  • Sign Up
  • Watch Video
For online retailer Dollar Shave Club, using the call-to-action button helped boost its customer acquisition efforts:
Over the course of a three-week test, the Sign Up call-to-action button delivered a 2.5x higher conversion rate versus other comparable social placements aimed to drive new user acquisition.” — Brian Kim, Director of Acquisition, Dollar Shave Club
The call-to-action feature will roll out worldwide this year.

You can schedule posts on Instagram easily – here is how!

schedule your Instagram posts

The Instagram Generation. Whether you view it as a complement or not is up to you. Nevertheless, it doesn’t really change the fact that Instgram has become a large part of most people’s lives. Yes, there are actually a small minority of individuals who does not use this app but let’s focus on the majority here. Instagram has always been a great way to document or share parts of your life to the world. It’s like being a celebrity with you bringing along a built-in cameraman on your phone. It would be great if you can document everything in real time but let’s face it, the world is not perfect and a lot of factors can hinder you. Therefore, we opt for the next best thing.  Scheduling. In fact, here are some awesome tools to aid you if you’re willing to invest and fully maximize your Instagram experience – learn how to schedule posts on Instagram.

Tool #1: The Adviser (Takeoff)

Remember the Unfollow app? Well, this particular app is actually part of it. Okay, we all know that this thing is a tool for scheduling. Granted that it doesn’t post things for you and that it is not equipped with the magic of photo editing, it does give you lots of nice hashtag suggestions as well as tips on what time is a good time to post your photos for your followers.

But what of the photo editing? I need to edit my photos. Worry not, it has a compensation of allowing you to open it on Instagram or a different photo editor.

See, it is really easy to use and allows you to use multiple Instagram accounts under it was well as team members (if you have any, of course). What’s more, it’s free but if you want to go premium the price can go up as high as $9.99 and more.

Tool #2: The Social Butterfly (Instapult)

One notable feature on this tool is that it can invite other administrators to post giving you a chance to connect to more people as well as manage multiple accounts if you’re the type that likes to post things for a specified audience.

It only does single-image upload but it comes with photo editing features as well. The sign up is free with a weeklong trial period and a monthly maintenance fee of $12. It also offers a premium package.

Tool #3: The Pacemaker (ScheduGram)

This tool is really handy for those who have multiple accounts and seek to pace and organize themselves to avoid mistakes when posting.

In addition, aside from scheduling its features also consist of photo editing such as cropping, retouches and effects once you upload the image. After giving your image the most desired pizzazz, you can go on to the next step which is the scheduling. You’ll eventually receive an email notifying and requesting permission to post the photo.

This baby costs about $13 per month with a seven days free trial.

Tool #4: The Reminder (Latergramme)

Did you ever have that post you wanted to post but forgot to post it? Or even worse, that post which you regretted posting and allowing public eyes to see?

Well, this tool might just be the one for you because despite its ability to schedule and organize your photos from both a browser and a mobile iSO app, it cannot post the photos itself and rather just reminds you that you need to post a certain photo at a certain time.

For this, you have a free sign up with a fee of $9.50 per month with premium and business accounts available if you’re interested.

There you go, some of the best Instragram scheduling tools the technological deities have to offer. Granted some of these are bit pricy but let me just me remind you how great these tools are for traveling, conferences, strong bouts of creative boredom and many more. Enjoy.

Pinterest smart feed – if you’re serious about promoting on Pinterest

Pinterest Smart Feed

Updates, you either hate them or grow to love them. I say grow, because despite all the great things updates can open up, there is the grueling and sometimes annoying task of getting used to it. Take Pintrest for example. It has launched an update known as Pinterest Smart Feed, where instead of seeing a chronological order of posts in your feeds, you’ll get to see posts that are not only catered to your interests but it is of high quality as well. And by high quality, I mean, it’s pretty and popular.

The Smart Feed’s algorithmic basis is not only pin and source quality but of ratings as well, granted that this feature may not really appeal to everyone but it’s a great way for you to discover new things and of course, motivate yourself to pin up great material.

Here are some tips:

  1. Beautification

Let us not delude ourselves. There is that inner aesthetic in all of us craving for beauty. Pretty pins get more attention than average ones. And right now, with the prospect of quality and ratings, everyone needs to up their game and invest a bit more effort in their posts.

One way to up your game, aside from giving your audience great pins, you can give your pin an extra oomph by tailoring them to the Pintrest layout. Tall and vertical is in. More specifically, an image with a ratio of 2:3 to 1:3:5.

Simple right?

Also for those dabbling on the typography scene, make your text visible not only on the big screen, but on the mobile as well.

  1. Word Caution

People are here for the pictures, not the needless block of words you have the audacity to call a description. Here’s a bitter pill to swallow, people on Pintrest (no matter how much they try to deny it) do not like to read too much.

Therefore, it is best to keep things short, simple, but nice enough to give your image that poetic and artsy touch. Words are powerful things but you already have a picture worth and a thousand of it, use them well.

Another to keep in mind it to avoid hashtag abuse, keep it relevant and around seven hashtags maximum. And no, I do mean it is okay for you to make long sentences out of it. Stick to the standard keywords and SEO techniques. You could also try altering the image or file name of the picture you post to make it easier to find.

  1. State your source

Have your teacher ever asked you that gut wrenching question, ‘what’s your source’? And you answer, ‘Wikipedia’. Yeah, that kind of disastrous faux pas that led you down to the dark road of lack of credibility and doubt. Same with Pintrest, you need to link in quality sources that are not only trustworthy but interestingly helpful as well.

  1. The Big Button

“OOOOHHH, what does this button do?” If you still remember this quote, your childhood was awesome. Anyways, let’s talk about buttons. To be more specific, it’s about placing the ‘Pin It’ button or widget on your blog posts to make it easier for people to share your works.

  1. The Social Construct

Some of you may be groaning at the screen right now. Yes, there is such the need to socialize with people if you want to be popular. It is a standard requirement that you are not overly adverse to human socialization.

But then again, considering the medium you’re aiming to use, I see nothing wrong with you trying to go an extra mile on being friendly and keeping tabs on what your followers are interested in as well as what’s trending.

There you go, some tips on how to up your promoting skills on Pintrest Smart feed. Don’t let the update discourage you with all the competition. Look at it in a better light, fire up some motivation and do better than ever. Work for it. Earn it.
