Why LinkedIn is an Important Marketing Strategy for your Brand

The social media network for professionals has really grown up. What was once viewed as solely a job-hunting destination has now evolved into a multi-faceted media channel, a place to consume thought-provoking content, digest POVs and commentary from industry leaders, share articles and access updates on-the-go via the beautifully designed LinkedIn app.

The vast majority of readers leverage media as a means to put forth a view, interests, and opinions to their network to generate interaction and help develop their social and professional connections and standing. The role of the media is to be a conversation starter, and LinkedIn is an ideal forum.


Even if your brand already shares on Facebook still publishing content on LinkedIn resonates with the specific audience you’re targeting. LinkedIn is just another platform for your content, which is always a good thing. Secondly, this channel has its unique offerings: LinkedIn users are engaged and hungry for smart content, and unlike Facebook followers, are less worried about being entertained and more interested in learning something.  

Here are five reasons to stay up-to-date with LinkedIn:
1. A new audience is waiting to consume your content—the platform has 225 million unique global users.
2. You can mine for leads and industry news on the site, in a number of ways: LinkedIn Today is a hub for custom content sharing. Channels allow users to receive tailored news and sift through stories. There’s the option to “follow” Influencers who opine on trends and share actionable business tips.  Global leaders, from Jack Welch to Sir Richard Branson (who has 1.8 million followers as a LinkedIn influencer vs. 402K followers on Facebook) have amassed loyal followings.
3. There’s an opportunity for increased brand awareness. Starting a company page is a relatively low lift and puts your content right in front of readers. LinkedIn is an excellent vehicle for sharing insights, as well as educating potential customers on your products and services. Long story short: Position yourself as a thought-leader.
4. LinkedIn can “drive enough traffic to crash your servers.” Add LinkedIn share buttons on your website and share your own content at least once a day.
5. You can connect with your readers. Start a group and host monthly discussions with those who join. The logistics and quality of comments is more fluid on LinkedIn than on Facebook.

Snapping in Real Time is a New Hyperconnectedness

From texting to status updates, photo sharing and hash tags... Sure, everyone’s on WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Twitter and Instagram too. But Snapchat is where people share what’s happening in their lives in real time. For hyperconnected #teens, snapping is like talking—only with videos, doodles, and filters.

Spectacles: the camera-glasses that have become the season’s must-have millennial accessory. They capture the world the way people see it—which is thrilling to watch. 
Memories: Memories enable Snapchat users to share photos and videos captured outside of Snapchat to your stories.
Circular Video:  With circular video, Snapchat has solved the age-old argument of whether video should be recorded and shared in landscape or portrait. And as more and more people begin to consume video on mobile devices and tablets, circular video could become the norm (and personally, I hope it does).
Here’s a quick demo of circular video in action:


From almost nothing in 2012, Snapchat has grown spect…

"Whatever Will Be Will Be" (Que Sera, Sera) | Children's Song

When the ultra-talented actress/singer Doris Day first recorded the song "Que Sera, Sera - Whatever Will Be, Will Be", she did not have much fondness for the song. After the final notes of Frank DeVol's arrangement of the original 1956 version of "Que Sera" echoed out of the recording studio and into silence - Ms. Day commented in deadpan fashion: "Well, that's the last you'll ever hear of THAT silly song!". You see, Doris looked upon it primarily as a children's song - lightweight - and she did not think it would have lasting appeal. Fate and popular taste begged to differ.




My impression upon hearing this 1964 version was that here, Doris infuses the song with a certain degree of extra warmth which is not evident in the 1956 version. In the original version, she sings it sweetly enough, but at the same time it is pretty much a "matter of fact" presentation of the song. Here, the love that she now has for the song in 1964 is qu…
