[Twitter] How Small Businesses Should Utilize the Underdogs of Social Media — A Deeper Look at Snapchat and Reddit
Facebook and Twitter are arguably the most popular social networking sites of the last decade. While Facebook and Twitter will remain popular for a long time (and quite possibly the long run), small businesses should look to platforms like Reddit and Snapchat for alternative digital marketing distribution.

Here are a few good reasons you should consider a blog for your company: Websites are mostly static - Once a contractor has been to your website, why does he need to go back?

Somewhere today somebody is writing a post about how it’s better to have quality followers on Twitter than a ton of followers.

In 2013, Audi launched their new A3 car in South Africa to a Twitter frenzy. On Twitter, it is perfectly acceptable to ask people to retweet your messages so that their friends can benefit from what you are saying too; on the contrary, on Facebook you are penalized for this kind of activity. In the digital age, there are two things we hold very dear: social media and casual gaming. But there’s a correlation between the two you may not realize. This correlation can guide your social media presence in an easily comprehendible and effective way. Photo from cognify.co.uk. Rewards.
