If one line summed up the business world in 2017 it’s …

“People Just Want Better”

Every review of the year on a global scale has highlighted what a shit year it’s been – so businesses have been heads down and asking “What can we do to change our world right now, how do we master the basics of business and how do we rely on ourselves and our network to build a better world”

Our most read marketing blog of the year went straight to the heart of this – businesses whether on a local level, regional level, country level or international level need to help each other


1. ARE YOU DEMOTING YOUR FRIENDS SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS?

It’s only when you understand how social media works that you know your friends and family are demoting your business posts

Not intentionally. It’s not like your friends and family sit there harbouring some grudge from 5 years ago and deliberately try to sabotage your business, rubbing their hands as they secretly want you to fail

The truth is most of your friends have probably never even heard the phrase social media algorithm, never mind know how it works

Facebook says the average user has access to about 1,500 posts per day but only will see about 300.

That 20% of posts you you see is dictated to a certain extend by your interactions

That’s why this blog is so important – if you care about those close to you – read this blog ASAP!!!
