I like it. Twitter may have recently changed the way their character limit works, but you have to admit that it can still feel a little too limiting - especially when you're trying to share a link to something! But thankfully, there is a little trick which can help to make your Twitter marketing a little easier and it's all thanks to Google's handy free tool, the URL shortener.   In any social media marketing, you're going to have to include links to your

Sharing Other People's Content on Facebook

Great site. Do you struggle to think of ideas about what to share on your Facebook page? I can appreciate that thinking up something fresh and new every day is going to be quite time consuming and also something which is going to require a lot of creative thinking. You need to post regularly, or the Facebook algorithm will cause you to appear less often in people's newsfeeds, so something is always better than nothing. But the good news is, even if you can't think of your own

By Adam  |  22 Aug 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

Which is best? There's only one way to find out. If you picked somebody at random and asked them which two social media networks were the best, they'd probably say Facebook and Twitter - almost everybody knows them! So if you were looking to do some social media marketing, it would be best to use these two sites. But what if you only had time to use one of them? If you're a small business, you might be running everything yourself and social media marketing takes time! It

Should You Use Google Plus for Social Media Marketing

By Adam  |  12 Aug 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

Lovely logo. When people think of social media, they probably think of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest – all of the big ones. The social media network which people are rather unlikely to think of is Google Plus, because Google Plus is generally considered to have been a bit of a failed endeavour. Nonetheless, this is one website which you might wish to include in your online marketing campaign, because it does have certain strengths.   While Google Plus might

Social Media Marketing Strategy

By Adam  |  5 Aug 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

You'll need this to celebrate if you follow this strategy. A lot of people would like to do social media marketing, but they have no idea about what to do. So often you'll see business Facebook pages, business Twitter pages and other social media pages where there's an extremely small number of followers, a very small number of posts and a huge period of time since the first update: it's clear that that business has had an unsuccessful experiment with social media

Facebook Business Page Management

That look when you get too many notifications. With more and more people signing up to Facebook every day, it can be a great platform for you to use to promote your eCommerce website. It's true, Facebook does have its downsides: for example, their system is kind of rigged so that if you don't pay them, marketing will be much harder, but it is still worth doing and can still be effective.   One thing I'd like to advise, though, is that you set up a whole new Facebook

By Adam  |  18 Jul 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

This person just finished reading this blog post. Are you somebody who has trouble with Twitter's character limit? Maybe you have a lot to say about your eCommerce website? Maybe you like to write long funny posts which wouldn't work if condensed for Twitter? Maybe it just takes you a long time to explain what your business is or what your products are and you'd like to be able to do that occasionally?

Google's URL Shortener

By Adam  |  15 Jul 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

Its own URL is pretty short, funnily enough. When doing marketing over Twitter, one thing which a lot of people grapple with is their very restrictive character limit. On the one hand, this stops people from waffling on, brings them straight to the point and helps to make tweets nice and punchy.
