Cross-platform Social Media Best Practices

Marketing messaging, brand voice and social media messaging are often mistaken for the same concept, but they are three different methods that all influence your content strategy. How you communicate with your social audience, also known as social media messaging, is vital for brands to engage with their audience and create loyal customers.

Reddit Advertising Insights

Reddit has over 5 million monthly engagements across 1oo k communities and can be an effective advertising outlet. Because the social platform is a go-to source for research, the ads often relate to their search. In fact, according to Reddit’s data, “47% of Reddit ads are more relevant to the specific topic users were browsing than ads on other social platforms.”

Flying Cart Port

Urban-Air Port designed and built a transport hub for flying cars in the English city of Coventry. The interesting fact is they created the port knowing flying cars are a long time away from being sold to the public. Urban-Airport created the station not to promote the future of air taxis but to manage the logistics of the building, such as boarding and disembarking. So, although we don’t have flying cars around, at least we have the transport hub. Read more about this development in Wired’s article.
