Do you Vine?
If not, I urge you to try it out for yourself to see if you like it. Vine is a fairly new video app available to iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, iPod touch (3rd, 4th, and 5th generation), and iPad users. What separates this innovation from the rest of its competitors is the ability to create clean, crisp, interesting videos related to a closed network. That is not to say that Vine will not expand to the Google Play Android market, however, it is currently popular as a result of its exclusivity. This app has caused a huge buzz throughout the personal use of it, but this has also transferred into the marketing and branding industry as well! Popular brand names such as Beats by Dre, Urban Outfitters, and Wendy’s have used vine to extend their branding efforts to target audiences within the mobile online community. The White House even utilizes Vine!

However, I cannot stress how important it is to consistently engage with your audience simultaneously throughout the development of online marketing for your brand. … Continue Reading

What’s that weird squiggly security field that appears each time we enter passwords online? We’ve all seen them before, and they’re called CAPTCHA Codes. They’ve been prompting us on a more frequent basis. This may have something to do with the fact that recently a group of hackers attacked 90,000 smaller WordPress blogs. (Gasp!) It is extremely important to create complex passwords and usernames in efforts to protect your online information. In February we posted an article, Online Social Hacking, to explain the dangers of internet hacking. We also used an example of Burger King and Jeep’s recent twitter hacks, which went public, and virally spread through headlines of publications like wildfire.
How are hackers able to access this information? … Continue Reading

What good is SEO without the comparison of data during a specific duration of time? You will have nothing to compare it to. SEO tends to be a very controversial topic, especially within the B2B spectrum of marketing. In previous articles we’ve covered the basic aspects of SEO as well as the benefits of its use (see Do New Companies Really Need SEO and Do Companies Really Need SEO Part II). Some view B2C SEO differently, and I’d like to touch on both perspectives within this article today. … Continue Reading

Do you blog? Pretty much everyone in today’s social media-driven society is asking that question, voluntarily promoting their own platform, or recommending their favorite subscriptions. The categories are endless: Fashion, Cooking, and How-To’s/DIY’s… You name it! If there is an interest in the topic, someone has already written about it and posted it onto their Tumblr, WordPress, or any other hosting platform available online. With that being said I am sure we are all familiar with the term “blog”, but what about Guest Blogging or Guest Posting? If you’re new to the wonderful world of blogging and are just breaking into the social media method of marketing for your business, you probably want to know what the difference is. … Continue Reading

This post is a follow up article which covers a story I wrote back in July entitled (you guessed it): Do New Companies Really Need SEO?
For those of you aren’t familiar with that post, I will give you a recap. A very dear friend of mine had just recently opened a brand new cupcake business in a small town. She was noticing progress in her sales, and since business started booming she inquired about social media and SEO integration. Initially, she hadn’t been very enthusiastic about the entire idea for many reasons. I proceeded to explain why it is very important to utilize these marketing efforts, especially when a business is doing well for itself. … Continue Reading
