Taking advantage of trends online and in real life can set your company and brand apart from the competition almost instantaneously. Take for example the Twitter trend, don’t you wish your company jumped on that bandwagon in 2006? #ThrowbackThursday is another trend that businesses are starting to finally use in conjunction with their social media campaigns. Fast forward to last week, this past weekend, and today….let’s talk Pokémon GO!
What is Pokémon GO? The real quick, kinda n00b explanation of it is…Pokémon GO is a mobile app version of a card game & cartoon that was popular when I was in high school. I was never a fan to be honest, but now I kinda am. I personally love how it incorporates real world locations & is getting people outside. The goal is to catch the Pokémon, evolve them, battle at … Read More »

I have always been, and will probably always be a huge supporter, and user of Twitter. I’ve had an account since its early days…you know, the days where there was so little happening that the main page was a live feed of the stream. I remember that after 10pm Central the newsfeed would primarily be in languages I am unfamiliar with. I also remember that people would talk…yes I do mean REAL conversations. Over the years I’ve experienced great success with Twitter, not just for my own personal account, but also for clients. So many ask how, and while the tips are so basic, it’s truly about the follow through.

I’ve worked from bed, sick, with this guy.
I’ve updated client accounts on HubSpot from a rest stop in southern Missouri.
I’ve worked from my phone, Tweeting from client accounts from Lake Carlyle in Illinois.
I’ve worked from friends houses…many times.
From airplanes going to all sorts … Read More »
