Calgary Social Media Marketing

The irony of social media marketing is that too much of it seems to be about social media marketing. This irony might not be the case if you only use Facebook or Twitter but, once you participate in LinkedIn and Google+, the conversations get a little boring. In fact, most social media conversation attempts fail.

Would you read a book if 50 percent of what was written was someone's uninteresting self promotion or if he or she published chapters from someone else's book? The art of good story telling may be lost.

To avoid the traps of social media marketing it is important to have a well thought out strategy. Below are some photos of our Calgary clients and a discussion of Calgary Social Media Marketing strategies.

    Our key to social media marketing success is to find ways to integrate the social life of key company players in to a firm's or brand's overall marketing strategy. Interesting hobbies and acts of giving are excellent ways for the general public to get to know your company.

  • Sometimes a social media marketing strategy can have unintended consequences - for the better. If you google the term Calgary Bridal Shops, the first image is a bridal shop going out of business sale. This image sits on DavidHowseMarketing.Com blog. After the sale, David redirected the image to CanadaBridalWHolesale.com

Calgary Marketing Strategies

Harmony Fashion is a new Swarovski Elements jewellery company in Calgary. Their current goal is to be known as having the largest Swarovski jewellery collection in Calary. After we setup their website and social media accounts the next step was a steady stream of promotion. Advertising is not the best use of social media but if Twitter and Facebook can boost sales by 10 percent just on posting photos and links this it would be smart to start such a tactic asap.

Fancy Cufflinks is another new Calgary business that focuses on men's cufflinks. Their strategy was very similar to Harmony Fashion except for a piece of unexpected luck. Check out the photo on our home page (bottom left corner). TV's Say Yes to the Dress star Monte Durham was thrilled with his new cufflinks from Fancy Cufflinks that he sent them this photo. Also note the Harmony Fashion banner in the background. Marketing collaborations can be very productive.
