We think it’s safe to say that there’s been enough time for social media platforms to have reached a large enough scale for the major players to really start hitting their stride. It’s expected that the amount of time that users spend on their social media accounts will increase and if this is the case, it’s time for companies to start thinking about ways in which they can increase their audience with social media marketing.
For that reason, here are even more social media trends we’re expecting to see this year:
It’s usual for companies looking to establish a logo for their brand to encounter a number of questions regarding complexity, use of colour, size adaption and whether or not a use of imagery should communicate their product or service. By analysing some of the world’s most well-known brands, we’ve established five common factors that probably have something to do with their success.
For many, a new year undoubtedly means a fresh start. If your goal this year is to make your business a success, you might be looking to start with your business’s website and it’s SEO. Your site’s SEO is determined by a number of factors, such as user experience, back links, social media presence, how regularly new content is added, and successfully improving the SEO of your website will in time increase the number of visitors to your website. One of the most popular free tools used to track a website’s performance is Google Analytics.
As we come to the end of 2017, it’s time for business owners to start thinking about the year ahead and make plans to improve their search engine optimisation (SEO). Of course, getting the basics right is essential, but some trends are expected to become prominent as we head into the new year. Below, we've rounded up four.
At Jumping Spider Media, we believe that social media is a must for any business. Having an active presence on sites like Twitter and Instagram can set you apart from the competition and increase brand recognition, but keeping up to date with the latest trends can be tough.
Any successful social media campaign is likely to involve visual media such as images and videos. But if you’re a small or medium-sized business and don’t have the funds to commission original photography every time you want to post something visual, then you may want to consider using other people’s images and manipulating them for your posts.
Meta descriptions and titles are used to tell both users and search engines what information can be found on your webpage. Meta titles can directly affect SEO as this is the first thing Google looks at when crawling your page and is, therefore, the first indicator for Google when it is looking to rank your page. Meta descriptions, however, do not have a direct impact on SEO but they do affect rankings as they can have an impact on the click-through rate.
A landing page is a one that receives traffic from anywhere apart from other pages on your website. These are visitors coming from social media, emails, PPC campaigns, and organic search, for example, who are directed to a range of different landing pages. A good landing page will encourage conversions and are tailored towards exactly what the visitor is looking for. Landing pages allow you to separate visitors and direct them towards specific information.
Updates are necessary every now and again, so why should your blog posts be any different? Not only is this important to ensure that your content remains up to date and original, but to sustain your website’s SEO efforts as best you can.
Overseeing brand consistency can be a challenge for any company or organisation, but it is critical. Sometimes even the smallest details such as colours, logos and tone can change the way that your company is perceived by potential clients, customers and partners.
