By now the COVID-19 virus has impacted hundreds of small businesses in our community. People are postponing travel plans, they are not spending their dollars on local restaurants or retail – and are canceling events left and right. This is wreaking havoc on small businesses.

As soon as the outbreak runs its course – we encourage you to consider keeping your dollars local whenever possible, in order to help these small businesses bounce back. Because for small businesses – every dollar counts and ultimately benefits the community we live in.

Shop Local: Instead of buying on Amazon or big box stores (I know, I know… it’s convenient…) – consider seeing if that product is sold locally (even if it costs a few dollars more). Not only does that help a small business, but it also helps the environment by reducing the amount of packaging materials and the impact that expedited shipping can have on the earth.

Eat Local: Buy locally sourced food (at a farmers’ market or grocery store) or eat at restaurants that support our local farmers. This offers higher quality food and more sustainability while reducing the carbon footprint that food can have on our environment.

Bank Local: Another way to keep your money in your community is to literally keep your money at a local community bank or credit union. Generally you will receive lower costs and better service while supporting the local economy.

Social media 2020: The top features, formats and trends to get familiar with this year - Marketing Land

2020 ! Last year saw continued growth and innovation in social media opportunities for brands with new features, content formats and dynamic creative capabilities designed to bring brands closer to their customers. For social marketers, a successful strategy involves tapping into audiences in compelling ways that can grab attention in passing moments.
Here is some insight into what to look for in 2020!

Video, machine learning, and shoppable posts are among the top trends to look out for in 2020.

01/11/2020

A professional bio on a social network is an introduction – a foot in the door so your potential audience can evaluate you and decide if you’re worth their time.

Here are a few simple rules to write a foolproof bio.

First off, make sure it's 100% original !

Show, don't tell: “What have I done” Who I am”

Tailor your keywords specifically to your audience.

Keep language fresh and avoid buzzwords like the following:

Answer one question for the reader: “What's in it for me?”

Make sure to include a call-to-action in all of your social media bios.

Take a look at our checklist below and check your newly written bio against it. If it's missing any one of these items, try your best to go back through and add it—it will ensure it's up to spec and ready for prime time.

Here's the list:

Your bio is 100% original
Your bio attempts to make a great and unique first impression
Your bio is visually pleasing (includes emojis)
Your bio is short and sweet (preferably under Facebook's limit)
Your bio is full of relevant keywords

Passed the checklist?

Awesome—now get out there, and upload that new Facebook bio! Then sit back, don't relax, and keep posting awesome content that keeps the good impression going.

Interactive Content

91% of buyers are looking for more interactive content online and in 2020, content marketing will shift its focus to give the people what they want. Shoppable posts, AR/VR, 360-degree video, quizzes, and polls are just a few examples of interactive content.

This type of content is new and original, helping it cut through noise
It gives visitors a reason to stay on the page
It’s extremely shareable (almost everyone has seen someone share results of a silly quiz like “What kind of cheese are you?”)
The shareability increases your brand awareness
Last but not least, people just love to interact!

Is your website mobile friendly ?

Of internet users, 80 percent own a smartphone, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that there’s been a HUGE increase in mobile search traffic over the past few years. In 2016, history was made when mobile traffic outpaced desktop. In October 2016, 51.3 percent of all web visits came from mobile while 48.7 percent came from desktop.

Since January 2015, smartphone web traffic has seen a 68 percent increase in the U.S. This means your site should be easy to view and navigate on both desktop and mobile. The easiest way to do that is with a responsive website. This kind of site adjusts content to fit on a variety of screen sizes..

I often hear horror stories from my advertisers about companies they have previously worked with.

There's a lot of contradicting advice out there. Some recommend only hiring people with lots of experience, while others swear you should hire only those who are green and willing to learn. Some suggest you hire a team of generalists who can do a little of everything, while others suggest a team of specialists is ideal.

So what is the best way to make a decision?

Look for marketers who are strategic and tactical. You need to find the balance between strategic marketers who plan for longer-range campaigns and tactile marketers who work on current ones, realizing that over time that balance will shift.

Have the right perspective. Don't just hire an agency based on its history. Hire its future, its vision. Look at what it thinks about the most important consumer trends.

Find out how well it gets technology, how deep and central to its culture that is, and whether it understands how to use social media.

Remember : Relationships fail when client expectations are not met and dissatisfaction is ignored. Here are some great questions you should ask before hiring me an agency :

What services do they provide?
What is their area of expertise?
What results have they achieved for their clients?
How many examples of success can they share?
What are their clients saying about their service, success, expertise, etc.?
What vision do they have for your organization?
Is their vision for your organization aligned with yours?
What tools and resources will they use to achieve results?
What is their client retention rate?

Most importantly— do they outsource their digital services like websites, Seo, PPC and social Media .

Digital marketing is essential today . Carve some time out of your schedule to find the right agency 🎃 It doesn’t have to be scary

Why Should You Have A Real Estate Instagram?

Numbers do not lie ..

Numbers Don’t Lie

Let’s talk about the Instagram data, shall we?

Prepare yourself…

500 Million users monthly
300 Million users daily
4.2 Billion likes per day
216,000 photos posted every minute
30% Of the total US population uses Instagram
More than half of all millennials are on Instagram every day

Here are the top ten reasons why Instagram is one of the best platforms for real estate lead generation:

You don’t have to compete with Zillow
You can rank quicker with a real estate instagram hashtag than with traditional methods of online SEO
Your recent posts can get to the top of user’s search results easily
Instagram has 10x more engagement than Facebook
On average, Instagram users are a more affluent demographic
You can message anyone on Instagram directly, including prospects
You can edit your photography right on the app and post stunning photos in seconds
Instagram Stories – the best way to showcase your brand – is the press release of the 21st Century
An image is worth a thousand words
A video is worth even more!

Tips to know ..

The first thing that comes to your mind when you think about ranking a website is content or backlinks. But they’re not the only ones! In fact, two other factors play a significant role in SEO – crawlability and indexability. Yet, most website owners have never heard of them.
