Social Media advertising: How to get the most out of your ad budget

Social Media advertising: How to get the most of your ad budget

Social media advertising is often considered a microscopic element to your marketing with no real value. Wrong! In fact, once sneered at as ‘fun’ or ‘oh that’s nice’, social media advertising has to be taken seriously as one of the most effective tools for your business. In a fast-paced technological age where 3 billion of us are using social media (90% of which on hand-held devices) platforms like Facebook, Instagram & Twitter subtly teach us how to advertise on social media, leading to higher engagements & new prospects along the way.  Fun fact- whether we’re refreshingly honest or in denial, we spend an average of 2 hours & 22 minutes a day using social media! 

How To Boost Sales With A Content Strategy

Why Is A Content Strategy Important?

Digital content can somewhat go under the radar. However, put quite simply, without it, no companies would make money & others wouldn’t exist. Content represents the voice of your brand & holds the key to growth & survival. Through a content strategy, we all grow organisations using website content on one digital platform or another. If you’re aiming to generate bundles of sustainable, long-term traffic without actually dipping into your funds, I’d always recommend content marketing.

“Last year, the demand for creative written content increased by 83%”

However, with most corporate sites having been around in one form or another for decades, a refresh is often seen as a quick task that simply updates branding and content rather than an opportunity to truly deliver what your audience wants. With this kind of approach it is easy to overlook design issues and approaches that could make the user journey much more intuitive, engaging and in turn deliver better results.
