A nifty little trick I found today ;)

Expanding on a post from earlier this week, this is why you should scrap your print ads and put your money into something more targeted.
I recently wrote and article on the Tank blog covering six things I think every business should be doing this year, and one of these was "Scrap Your Print Ads". I want to expand on this a bit. I worked (indirectly) in print for many moons, mostly for the Northcliffe and Daily Mail group.

I just figured this out and thought I'd share :)

#facebook   #socialmediatips  
So I just figured this out - in a rush of Holmes logic - and though I'd share. Sometimes, for whatever reason, you may need to know the age or your, or another persons, Facebook Page. If you try and scroll through all those posts you're likely to lag y'self to bits. Instead, go to Photos, ...

Are you measuring your return on investment from your social media channels? There's a lot of confusion about social ROI. Our Digital Strategist Nik says it's a lot easier than we may think, especially if you have a road map for success, and covers the basics over on our blog this morning.
