  • Sit Down Super Bowl. World Cup Final Was The Most Talked About Sports Event Ever On Facebook Now what will we talk about? The World Cup, which wrapped up Sunday with Germany’s 1-0 victory over Argentina, was the Facebook’s biggest social media event ever, with 350 million users participating in conversations about the month-long event, according to the social network. Those users — more than one-fourth of Facebook’s active roster of 1.28 […]
  • How To Do Audience Research That Helps Focus Your Content Marketing It’s Sunday afternoon. You’ve popped around to see your gran, and she’s asking after your health. “Well, Gran,” you answer, “this weekend I got totally wasted and fell asleep in a trash can.” An unlikely response?

The plaintiffs’ main arguments are the following: Google maintains a mobile search monopoly through Mobile Application […]
  • The Power Of Real-Time Display For Back-To-School While many schools have recently let students out for summer break, back-to-school (BTS) shopping is already top of mind for marketers. This season, eMarketer estimates about $50B will be spent on retail e-commerce sales, including a wide range of products and categories from apparel and electronics to school and office supplies. eMarketer’s recent report explains […]
  • Removing The Fog From The Marketing Cloud Consider this: just 20 years ago, a retailer having a website was a huge novelty. Back then, the main purpose was to connect customers to service reps or find a store, and it took years before you could effectively showcase and optimize products like you can today with a marketing cloud. Websites and e-commerce have […]
  • Acquisition Isn’t Oz: Follow The “Yellow Brick Road” Of Email Marketing Success Attracting new prospects to your enterprise is obviously key to a successful business, but that is just the beginning of the process.

The “Start To Success” program offers direct access to a Facebook representative to businesses that commit to spending at least $50 a day for a month (in other words at least $1,400). Facebook Page administrators started […]
  • Just Like Facebook, Twitter’s New Impression Stats Suggest Few Followers See What’s Tweeted Twitter has new analytics available that let anyone understand exactly how viewed their tweets are. Those stats also clear something else up. Just like Facebook, what you share on Twitter isn’t seen by all your followers. Facebook has been under fire for over a year as brands have noticed that their posts have gotten less […]
  • Twitter Revamps Analytics To Show Impressions & Engagement On Organic Tweets Twitter gave its analytics dashboard a major upgrade today, offering advertisers a deeper look at how well their organic tweets are performing.
