Social Media Stats That Matter 2019

Social media is daily life these days and has been for a while. Before you say it, yes! I do remember the days before social media – I am that old – I just refuse to admit to having a dinosaur as a pet! It is not only daily life in general for people, worldwide, it is also daily business life. Having the right social media presence is a must for even the smallest, most local of businesses because the people up the street and down the road pay attention. You never know, they might just react in a positive way to what you post.

Are you trying to figure which social media platforms are best for your business? Would you like to know where you should spend your social media marketing budget?

Even small businesses are getting into putting their businesses forward via social media. F4mmedia can help in a few ways. With all of this you need to have the right message, the right content going out on the right channels at the right times. This means having a suitable tagline or slogan. Then back it up with the right expanded message. Also add the right illustration or video or audio. Set the statement, the message in the right background and deliver it to the right people when and where they will notice it.

It is all a case of making things fit along with being informative, or a little entertaining, perhaps even adding a hint of a wow! We try to add illustration, for instance, that ranges from a plain display of what is offered, sometimes an image or three that adds to the whole of the brand, background or landscape, sometimes adding a more theatrical setting for all that is said. Sometimes it is a case of employing real art, adding imagery to a stream of words that gently or forcefully makes people think – taking them somewhere different. All of this, with the copy, the text message as a whole, tells a story – it may be a case of telling the same story once more, with a different twist, sometimes extending the whole brand story with a completely new chapter. It is delivered in the right way, we look for the best channel possible – you don’t hope to read a book in the cinema, do you? You don’t expect to eat chinese food in a pizza house. So, when looking for B2B contacts you look rather more in LinkedIn rather than Snapchat, when you are looking to sell goods locally particular Facebook groups have real use for you.

Twitter is one of the “older” social networks. Still, I often have the impression, that especially with young entrepreneurs and small businesses, Twitter is also one of the most undervalued networks.

Did you know that the earliest advertisements date back to 4,000 B.C.? That’s right, in early civilization, business owners would paint on highly visible rocks encouraging people to visit their store. 6,000 years later, the paint’s a little different, but the principle is essentially the same. But what if I told you everything is primed to change in a massive way? What if the rocks we’re painting our messages could soon be direct sales channels? The following is a thought-experiment that begins to explore what’s possible.

Video Tips for Company promos

There are so many ways you can approach video for your business. There are a huge number of styles you can employ. Choose a style that fits your brand, fits your message and appeals to your target audience. Think of a continuous line from your logo, to your website, to your graphic content, to your promo videos.

A lot of use is being made of a number of visual styles in website design, graphic design for business and in videos:

– minimal, still being made use of

– geometrics and polygonal backgrounds and textures

– flat design with a hefty use of icons and a bold use of colour.

Threads of these stylistic variations can be used in video. Of course, such basic forms as a direct statement to camera remains as a useful option for many businesses. Also what we may refer to as ‘big picture’, using a scene with particular characters and a suitable setting, added voiceover, soundtrack and text, perhaps as a lower third, is of great use.
