When Katie Parr isn't writing young adult novels, doing kickboxing, and watching cat videos, she's cramming her brain with online marketing strategies and dreaming up creative content. Katie currently serves as the Digital Marketing Specialist for the Washington Pavilion, a center for the performing arts, visual arts and sciences in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Thanks for the tips! I can't wait to try out those online editing programs. :)
Interesting article/infographic! Thanks!
Definitely! Here in Sioux Falls, South Dakota (the most populated city in the state), we have so many flourishing small businesses due to our favorable economy. Many of the start-ups use social media across the board and have an active Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn page. Some even utilize Instagram if their business lends itself to visuals. Not too many use YouTube or Google +, though we here at tCloud Solutions recommend taking advantage of these growing and successful networks.
Many social media marketing companies exist in Sioux Falls just to cover all the businesses in the area and provide competition in the marketing field. While many start-ups have social media pages, they aren't all using it in the most effective way, hence why there are so many marketing companies around, such as the one I work for.
However, some of the more established companies in the city and in more rural areas of the state are slower to embrace social media, especially if they are owned by older adults.
Hope this helps! :)
Very insightful post! Thanks! :)
Hi James! Thanks for the comment. :) You're absolutely right; selfies can be used effectively in a business promotional setting. I think it's really been working for many companies, especially clothing companies or those offering a specific product.
