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.

“Then and Now” Vintage Social Media Info Graphic
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.
