5 of the best social media campaigns mocking #Bendgate

As you may have noticed recently, Apple released the iPhone 6 and 6 plus. A joyous occasion for many apple fan boys (and girls) and a way for Apple to deflect some of the attention away from the celebrity nude pictures leaked from Apple's "secure" iCloud. Not only did Apple contradict their previous mocking statements over Samsungs bigger smartphones with the plus, they produced a product that apparently bends in people's pockets.

Don't let Twitter get you down! - Part 2

Here is where I go through tweeting, probably something that may be the most daunting to a lot of you.  There's a lot of jargon and rules that go with tweets, but once you understand what goes where and why, it becomes Childs play!  

What and why do we us hash tags? - This is a hash tag- #. Simple enough isn't it, but why do we use them on Twitter. When you place a hash tag before a keyword or phrase (phrases that follow a hash tag, don't have spaces e.g. #throwbackthursday), that keyword or phrase are then easy to search for in the Twitter search bar. If you click on that word or phrase, it will show you who else has used that hash tag in their tweet.  Hash tags tend to give your post extra reach, as other users who do not follow you can see the tweet. This leads me on to trends and trending. Best practice with hash tags is to use no more than 2, don't spam!

Thinking with the end in mind

You may have a company that is just starting up, you may have a company that is well established but needs a new marketing campaign. Whatever your experience with business, marketing or marketing agencies, we see the same problems crop up with many companies that contact us. They simply don’t have an end game in mind, they think “We probably should be doing some kind of marketing” but haven’t got a plan in mind. Here are a few that we frequently see:

  • They don’t have any concrete objectives or goals they want to achieve at the end.
  • They don’t know what their budget is (or any idea of a realistic budget in mind).
  • They don’t have a time scale.
  • Their expectations may be too high for the amount of time and money they are willing to spend.

Now, this is not me griping about clients, and complaining about working, we love what we do (although sighs are frequently echoed around the office). This is just a little guide that will (with any luck) help companies utilise marketing agencies to their full capability and help grease the wheels to a mutually beneficial relationship. At the end of the day marketers are happiest when their client is happy!
