Social Media Marketing News
I knew there would come a time that social media would contribute to high referral web traffic, but I just didn’t realize it would be so drastic. In 2016, social media accounted for double the amount of traffic than in 2015.
What happened in the past year for our business to see such a major swing? You could say we’re posting more content, creating more value, and connecting with more like-minded people. All of that, I would say is true, but I think a few more things come into play.
Just like the Hollywood stars, our magazine contributors have achieved greatness over the years and we want to hear from you with nominations for…

VAR marketing: DIY (do it yourself) or ship it out? That is the question of the day. For everyone with the attention span of a rooster on crack, the Twitter answer is ship it out unless you have a lot of money or can afford to hire Anya C (if you have to ask…retire now).
For everyone else, I think the question is not one of DIY versus shipping it out, but rather this: Can you afford to market your business effectively on the web? Or are you just wasting money like back in the trade show days where you attended just because not being there seemed to be worse than the fact that they generated no business.
Our friends over at The Partner Marketing Group posted a great blog about “Ensuring Social Media Success in 2015“. From getting your images, icons, and banners ready for the year to making sure your profiles are up-to-date and keyword-ready, getting your social media “ducks in a row” just got a whole lot easier with this blog post!

A whole magazine with a hashtag theme? What else could you need? Well, if you’re not really active in social media, probably a little more information about what they are and why they are so important.
If your experience with hashtags is #Sharknado or the Jimmy Fallon/Justin Timberlake video (look up “Jimmy Fallon hashtag” on YouTube; really – do it – it’s pretty funny), then you probably are wondering why you should care.
The Partner Channel Magazine Fall 2014 Issue is on the way to your desks and is all about the hashtag. Fellow Partner community members have shared their hashtag thoughts with us to get the excitement started. The stories below are from our friend, Adrianne Machina at Tornado Marketing– thanks for sharing!
