As a policy, we’ve always chosen to obey the “once and nevermore” philosophy with our social media posts for clients. We handcraft each post and that post will appear one time and on one dealership’s Facebook page. Once it’s used, it’s done forever.
At some point in the last couple of years, someone started spreading a “best practice” that it’s good for websites to automatically play videos once people click through to them. This is not a best practice. It’s annoying at best. At worst, it can prevent people from visiting your website ever again. One of those people is now, officially, me.
Let’s put the TL:DR version at the top for the sake of expediency. A portion of the liberal mindset is the reason that Reddit is in the process of failing. It’s not political liberalism – that’s something that has helped Reddit maintain its pull over the internet and the real world. It’s not its cultural liberalism – diversity and openness have contributed to the appeal of the site. The liberal mindset that is killing Reddit is the concept of emotional socialism. Reddit management, a small but outspoken portion of its users, and scorned members of the media tried to tear down the pseudo-freedom that the community enjoyed in the name of anti-harassment.
The headlines are starting to run. The rumors continue to roll. Every four years, we begin the new but intense cycle of political social media. One might say that it’s every two years, but let’s face it – the general audience on social media doesn’t get that excited about anything other than the presidential race. For the third time, we’re all about to go to war.
If you’re a Democrat, you’re probably thinking that there are so many Republicans running for President that it will be hard to decide who to attack. If you’re a Republican, you’re probably groaning every time a new candidate is announced because it means more confusion on the ticket and more debates to watch. Nobody should be groaning. This is a very good thing. This is America.
For years, the Internet Revenue Service has been an absolute joke of an agency. We don’t tend to get into name-calling or editorial elaboration on this site too often, but today’s revelation of a major security breach of personal information for 100,000 Americans is simply too insane to allow to slide without commentary.
Other countries have less stringent emissions regulations and overall governmental influence over the vehicles on their roads than the US. Because of this many manufacturers, including the ones that were born here offer a wide array of vehicles that would not be able to travel the roads in the US due to the massive regulations our government imparts on the vehicles offered here.
Hello friends, fans, contributors, enemies, unknown folks, and alpacas. After seven awesome years of focusing on social media pretty much solely, we’ve decided to expand the scope, posting frequency, and style of this site to include “important” news. While we’ll still be posting plenty about social media, marketing, and other important topics like these, it’s time to focus on more prevalent issues in the world.
There are two major components to a good blog. Sure, there are plenty of other components such as design, site speed, consistency, purpose, niche relations… actually, there are so many that I could write a full-length article just listing the different components, let alone going into detail about them. Still, there are two primary components that can overcome poor performance on all of the other areas.
Just about every company, from age-old corporations that got going before the lightbulb was common to brand new organizations that are online-only, want to use social media to get more visitors to their websites. How exactly can these companies accomplish this, though? It takes more than just opening up a Facebook page and waiting for friends. Some companies have done an incredible job leveraging the power of social media to improve their traffic and make the new word-of-mouth work for them. Let’s look at a few of the most successful cases from the recent past to see what makes for a great social media strategy.
