New twitter rules will affect us all –

  • the recent introduction of 280 characters means more detailed messaging, bigger story outlines
  • new posting rules stopping repeat posting of tweets
  • outlawing multiple accounts using same posts

Social media marketers react to Twitter’s new rule restricting simultaneous tweets with identical content across multiple accounts.

It also includes the chance to manage your customer relations, giving you the chance to engage with all of those people out there, current customers and those you are hoping to capture, and from that build more of a brand, more of a presence. As always it needs to be done right, preferably with the right imagery, still and video, to go with it all. You also need to choose the right channels and the right schedule for posting and engaging with others.

Seasons change – new marketing opportunities

Autumn grows, leaves fall …
… another season

…colours change
– the backdrop for your brand changes

The change in seasons gives you an opportunity. Yes, I know it can be one of those tiresome things needing more effort but then it is also an easy way to have content and design ideas ready and waiting to plug in to a new campaign.

We will see a change in the natural environment – trees having leaves change colour, giving a new palette around us outside, then shedding leaves etc. We see a return to school for the kids, sports moving on, a change in the clothes we wear, skies, lengths of days and nights, temperatures lower. Each of these may be a point of interest.

With the change season so the natural palette changes. Should yours? Should it give you an opportunity or an excuse to make some design changes? alter the palette of what you are offering up?
