Snapchat Adds Ability to Insert Links into Snaps (and Some Other Stuff)

Snapchat has always been a bit difficult for smaller businesses to utilize on a regular basis due to its limited organic reach, 24-hour limit of content on the platform, and difficulty to directly connect with users.

At least one of those problems, connecting directly with users, has crumbled a little with the introduction of user-created links for Snapchat posts.

Instagram Launches Automatic Spam and Offensive Comments Filter for Your Accounts

Spam is annoying, but, we always like to look at comments flooding beneath your pictures as a sign that you’re doing something right. I mean, people are taking notice of your content.

Of course, that superficial flattery really only lasts so long until you’re pulling out your hair over having to get rid of spammy or offensive comments.

Hey, Instagram to the rescue!

How ‘Normal’ is your Business’ Social Media Activity? Let’s Look…

Being “normal” is boring. We know that. In fact, our whole approach to our clients’ social media, videos, and other marketing initiatives is to stand out from the “normal.”

However, understanding what other businesses are doing, especially ones that are similar to yours, is an effective way of taking stock in just how healthy your social media and other marketing practices are holding up. 

Which Social Media Platforms Should Your Business Be On?

It’s easy to get caught up in the hype of the latest social media platform. Take Snapchat, for example. It went from something that people used to send risqué pictures a few years ago to each other to something that the latest summer movie blockbuster is using to advertise their release dates. Your mom probably knows how to use it, too.

But, just because many people are using it, does that mean that your business needs to be on it? Yes and no.

Let’s take a look at some of the larger social media platforms and give a rundown on if you should be on them.
