Why I’m Wary About Scheduling Facebook Posts

Facebook rolled out some new changes the other day, including stronger initiatives for advertising through promoted posts, new admin “roles” for Pages, and post scheduling. In the past, we’ve always discouraged people against scheduling their Facebook content ahead of time. Facebook did not have a native option to schedule posts, so people used third-party syndicator […]

Who's in Charge of Your Brand?

Katie sent us all a great article from the Content Marketing Institute that talks about the importance of brand consistency across social media.

Not All Social Media Agencies and Services Are the Same

Working for a social media agency where we take our practice extremely seriously, it’s not a surprise that I feel irked when I see Internet “marketers” blithely tack on social media as an add-on service to their list of professions.
