We do a lot of newsletters here at TLD, and we get great feedback – people saying they love our newsletters and always read them.
Email newsletters happen to be one of the best types of marketing out there (as usual, if it’s done well). This is because:
Most people say that the best source of business usually comes from existing clients.
Either referrals from clients or repeat business.
So, there is something to be said for focusing on this.
But it can feel awkward asking your clients for referrals. I know we are meant to do it, and “if you don’t ask you don’t get” and many people swear by it. Personally ,I still find it hard. Being in the UK it’s maybe harder for us.
We have a tradition at TLD to suprise people when it’s not even their birthday anymore. It started years ago when Tamlyn had a surprise party in the office after the boys plotted the surprise on Skype.
April was an unusual month. As you may know, we have a number of South Africans who work for Top Left Design – Tamlyn, Amy, and JP – and in addition, I used to live there and half my family is South African. Amy lives in Cape Town, and Tamlyn was getting married (to Jack, who is English) in South Africa.
Amy and I decided it would be a good idea for me to visit South Africa, and she and I would both go to Tamlyn’s wedding together!
I came across this excellent webinar from the idio Co-Founder & COO Andrew Davies.
Twitter: Forrest Gump
Here is the second edition about how movies can use social media platforms. In this post, I will review Twitter profile of classical drama Forrest Gump. Activity and variety are two main factors I will review.
Twitter profiles of movies are usually active up to about a year after a film’s release. And some are never really properly active at all even if they have set up the profile.
With Google announcing that around the 21st april, your site’s “mobile friendlliness” will affect your search results, a lot of people are worried. This is because to create your site again, to make it responsive or to make a mobile version, takes time and money, and that may not be something your business has budgeted for.
We get it. As a small business, unexpected costs are the WORST!
Anytime you have to upgrade your PCs, invest in new software, replace a team member, or pay some regulatory body, there are costs which don’t necessarily align with your business’s income and profit. Annoying!
With Google working on changing their search algorithm it’s now widely known that your website needs to be “mobile friendly”. But did you know there are different types and definitions?
We are film lovers and social media lovers so I thought to do a few deeper studies on how individual films are represented on social media platforms.
Facebook is definitely the most widespread platform to stay in touch with fans even years after a film premiere. It’s interesting to see how an animated movie which is dedicated to kids uses social media on a platfor which has a lower age limit – Facebook. Disney’s Frozen is the most successful animated movie ever.
It’s my annual tradition to write a blog against all odds on International Women’s Day – no matter where I am or what I am doing. To show the portability of publishing – and accomplishing something extra on any given day. The first year I was in Austria on a skiing trip, and last year I was in Singapore and wrote about achieving #Inbox Zero.
