Twitter’s deal with Stripe, Big Commerce, & Shopify means they’re serious about tapping into the holiday shopping market. You’ll see plenty of tweets with “Buy” buttons for the upcoming holidays. Want to join in the shopping spree? There are many ways to go about developing a hashtag campaign, but winning ones all have four qualities called FOAM. If you’re using Twitter for events, Tracy, Marketer from Eventbrite suggests we geo-tag our tweets for amplification. If you tweet about Game of Thrones while watching Game of Thrones, you’re apparently not alone. TV audience uses Twitter over the internet to connect with the show. And remember how Coke recently launched Twitter’s first ever branded emoji? That generated $100,000 worth of free Twitter impression in a day. Tweet about it – in 140 characters because those 140-character-capped days may be over, very soon.
The big news is that Instagram ads are now open to all businesses worldwide. They project $600M mobile ad revenue worldwide this year. Whether or not they’ll reach this goal is unclear, but what is clear is you need to add Instagram as a marketing channel. Leveraging Contextual Influencers and Paid Ads are a good bet but make sure you’re transparent when using posts generated by your users, or you might end up like Croc. They may not have broken any laws, but definitely lost the trust of a loyal customer and her friends. Being organic is spreading into visual advertising, thanks to Instagram. Being “perfect” visually lost merit. Be “raw” instead. Oh, and the older the Influencers, the less following they have on Instagram.

I believe Twitter’s new product that will let you go longer than 140 characters will be called Medium http://t.co/AUHxwkyL4v

How many times do you tweet a day? Global brands with respectable followers tweet 12 times a day – what does this mean for your company? If Twitter was a place, it would be New York. The fast-paced nature of the platform means reaching your audience can be difficult. Make sure you’re using the right keywords to reach the right audience, at the right time! #TwitterTips #SMM #SocialMediaMarketing A photo posted by Keyhole.Co (@keyhole.co) on
