The Future of Social Marketing

Social Communicating

Social media has become the fundamental form of communication and there are no signs of that ever-changing; only enhancing as the years go by. Social media has become every marketer’s best friend. It allows you to receive maximum exposure while expressing your greatest ideas, promotions and information. Social media encourages creativity while educating your target audience. 

Are you using social media correctly and to the highest extent in order to validate your marketing efforts?

We know a picture speaks a thousand words, but what about other visually stimulating medias such as videos, info graphics and of course… greeting cards?

In the past few years, photo and video-friendly social media networks such as Instagram, Pinterest, Vine and Facebook have exploded in popularity. Twitter has revamped its entire timeline and profile page design to better incorporate images and even animated GIFs. Did you know every seconds, five tweets contain a Vine link?

All of this begs the question: is visual content the future of social media?

In a nutshell: yes. Our brains process images 60,000 times faster than text and we tend to enjoy visually appealing images that prompt emotion and influence us take action.

Sendcere combines the most important social media concepts; be visually appealing, prompt emotion and influence us to take action. Sendcere is a game changing social media platform in the market place, as it is beyond unique. We are so blessed to have this tool accessible at our fingertips.

We know where we are headed as a company with the power and impact we can create in the social media industry. We are on a path many have not taken and we are forging strong, hard and in unity to change the world one card and one gift at a time.

Here is an eye opener to see just how far we have come with communicating with one another, and how bright our technological future is.

Do you remember what we did before Twitter? How on earth did we share small but important messages with our friends and colleagues?

With a Post-It note, perhaps?

Back in those primitive, pre-Twitter times, a quick scribble on a Post-It note was a really fast and easy way to communicate with one or more people. You could even “pin” the Post-It note on their computer monitor to make sure it was seen.

Pinterest’s roots clearly began with the humble cork-board, while Facebook was born from the address book. Staring out of a window was the “YouTube” of our youth and the Rolodex was quickly pushed aside once LinkedIn was launched. The greeting card aisle has begun to collect dust since the era of personalized greeting cards with the birth of Sendcere; now the endless search for the right words has vanished.

Although social media has become the way of the times in regards to communicating, sharing information, inspiring ideas, and acting on promptings, there are still “Dos and Don’ts” when it comes to marketing with social media.

The SOCGuru Advantage

SOCGuru LogoBy now, you may have seen the new webinar hosted by Steve, Vanessa and Kody about the exciting new release of the Free Card option with Sendcere. If you have seen the webinar, did you catch the part about SOCGuru? You may be wondering what in the world SOCGuru is and how you can leverage this tool to maximize your social sharing ability and increase traction for your business. If so, you have come to the right spot to get the answer.

Founder, CEO and visionary Kody Bateman had an ingenious idea one day, “What if we could make it so simple and easy for someone to share a card that would instantly capture the attention of their friends on social media?” This idea sparked the concept of an intellectual tool within Sendcere that would provide every day, in-demand cards in conjunction with well-crafted social posts proven to capture the attention of others on social media. This tool is called SOCGuru, an expert level feature within Sendcere created for your social sharing activity.

Once the idea was born, Kody knew he needed to partner with like-minded individuals who could take his vision and bring it to fruition. He decided to extend the invitation to SendOutCard’s distributors, Gayle Zientek and Melinda Russell, to collaborate with SendOutCards on SOCGuru and create the absolute best material for the field.

“This has been an honor and I feel so privileged to have been apart of the creative process alongside Melinda and Kody.”—Gayle Zientek

Kody envisioned and identified five categories that were every day reasons and needs to send cards. “We understand there is a need out there and people want to send cards, so let’s make it even easier to do so” Kody Bateman. With SOCGuru we give people every day reasons to send a card, and even though they may not know the right words to say, we graciously provide suggestions for them to use if they wish. The SOCGuru intellect takes all of the guesswork out of the process and allows you to post with confidence and ease.

“These are simple cards to share quickly and easily with instructional posts to maximize your social traction and capture your audience’s attention.”—Kody Bateman

SOCGuru makes it easy to celebrate life’s moments at the drop of a hat. By utilizing SOCGuru you are providing the ultimate service and prompt for your social media friends; you are inspiring them to send, you are reminding them to send and you are providing a way for them to send. Sendcere and SOCGuru are the perfect pair for social media. Kody has put a lot of thought into this process and that is why this tool is so exceptional; it enhances every aspect of your social sharing capability.

“Learn from the mindset of keeping it simple, sharing effectively and getting results.”—Gayle Zientek

An Attitude of Gratitude

Gratitude: the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. 

 

Card-1024x623Have you ever noticed, sometimes it is much easier thinking about everything you don’t have or everything you wish you had? It is easy to fall into the trap of wanting and wishing rather than living in the moment. Having an attitude of gratitude can literally change the course of your day. By waking up in the morning with the mindset of living your day positively and being grateful for what you have, who you are and the things you have experienced, you will be whisked off your feet and feel the fullness of gratitude. 

“Gratitude is a powerful process for shifting your energy and bringing more of what you want into your life. Be grateful for what you already have and you will attract more good things.” – The Secret

Do you know what the miracle of the moment is? miracle           The miracle of the moment allows you to be present everyday, through every conversation, experiencing memories being made with your family and allowing yourself to grow. Living in the future and living in the past robs you of the moments happening right now. The miracle of the moment keeps your mind open and present to any opportunity that may come your way and will allow you to act upon your promptings.

“Focus. Otherwise you will find life becomes a blur.” – JPP


i-am-grateful.jpgIncorporating gratitude in your life makes it easier for you to live in the moment and enjoy what is happening right now. The more you practice living in the moment, you will experience the miracle it truly is. Gratitude is a gift and a skill; it takes practice and full release to allow you to feel grateful. When you are able to feel grateful for people, experiences and the life you live, you will receive a very special gift; living in the moment and being grateful.

“A moment of Gratitude makes a difference in your Attitude.” – Unknown

Be an example, have an attitude of gratitude and live the life you love, spread the joy of the miracle of the moment and you will find the quality of your life will increase tenfold.

“Listen to the voice within you, the voice that tells you who you are and celebrates your genius within. Listen to your voice and make the difference that only you can make.”—Kody Bateman
