Take Note

When’s the best time to send a webinar email promotion?

Much like social media, timing matters when sending your emails. Even the best content can get lost among hundreds of emails if sent at the wrong time and day. That’s the last thing you want, especially when trying to promote a webinar. According to a report conducted by the webinar software company ON24, 63% of webinar attendees were driven by email campaigns sent in the middle of the week.

An Analogy For SEO

Teaching SEO to a non-specialist is a challenge, but using a shared knowledge metaphor can help people retain information. Search Engine Journal (SEJ) came up with one that we're sure you’ll never forget – Google as a librarian.

How to market video on each social media platform

Leveraging video on social media can be a successful marketing tool, but each social channel requires a different approach. No social media is created the same. 

YouTube has proven to be the most effective video platform, with 55% of marketers using the resource, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only one that brings results. Learn tips to tailor your video specs, time to post, video length, and more for these popular social media channels in Social Media Today’s article
