These Products Have Packaging You’ll Swoon Over

Monday, May 15th, 2017

Hire a genius designer = get genius packaging. If done correctly, your product’s packaging could be as good as your product (maybe even better?!) and it’ll be exactly what draws eyes. We typically like to say, “Wherever the eyes go, business grows.” (That may or may not have been made up on the spot, but it’s so true.) Sure, packaging that looks nice gets attention; but packaging that stands out, tells its own story, and has functionality all on its own is pure brilliance. We found inspiring examples from BoredPanda. Check them out here:

#This #Is #How #To #Not #Use #Hashtags

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

You’re sitting there, eyes glazed over from the sugary mess you devoured and suddenly you’re wondering whether to find a way of time travel or to make amends with the regret of consuming the entire box of oatmeal crème pies. You know the feeling. This is the same thing.


When social media users see a company or brand overindulge in hashtags, the familiar nausea returns. Too much of a good thing is never good. We’re here to tell you to put down that last treat (hashtag), and embrace the phrase, “a little goes a long way.”


4 points to pay attention to:


- Don’t make your hashtags irrelevant. Incorporate trending topics or hashtags without appearing (for lack of a better word) desperate.

- Specify. Specify. Specify. Specific hashtags target a precise audience. This will guarantee valuable engagement.

- Make time for research. Check to see that your hashtags aren’t associated with content that’s inappropriate for your brand. This applies to tags you’ve created and tags that already exist.

- Short & simple. Try and keep it that way and your customers and fans can remember your hashtags just as easily as the latest Bieber hit.

Perky Rewards

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

Implementing perks to your advertising campaign is the essence of marketing your brand. If you’ve already collected a generous following, throw in a bonus for your allegiant audience with a bit of a “bribe” and you’ve sealed the deal with your consumers. Use especially established brands as a guide, such as AT&T; they’ve recently launched a very cheeky campaign that advertises their bring-absolutely-anyone-just-to-fill-a-seat “Ticket Twosdays” promotion. With a little bit of incentive and imagination, your brand can “bribe” too.
