Below I’ve listed my top 5 reasons to advertise on Facebook.
These days, if you're single, there are countless ways to meet someone new - which means the modern dating world can be tricky to navigate.
Think back to what dating was like in the ’90s. There were Dating agencies, lonely hearts columns, useless matchmaking with friends setting you up with their ‘amazing’ friend or even just picking someone up in a bar. There was a lot less stigma towards playing the field before eventually settling down with ‘the one’. Fast forward to the present day and the dating game and how we go about finding ‘the one’ has changed massively due to technology.
When I see the word ‘guerilla’ it comes across as very intense and I think of a form of combat and conflict. Add the word ‘marketing’ to it and it sounds like companies are trying to create some sort of combative communication with their audience.
However, guerilla marketing and guerilla warfare do share some similarities in that it aims to surprise the audience and essentially ambush them with an unconventional marketing strategy, high energy and lots of imagination. Guerilla marketing campaigns aim to strike the audience at a more personal and memorable level that is due to leave a lasting impression.
According to Google Trends ‘memes’ are so commonly shared that it is becoming a more popular search term than ‘Jesus ‘ and with many people spending more time on social media today than they do watching television.
This gives brands a challenge to stand out amongst a sea of competitors.
Memes tend to resonate well with all age groups and what makes them special is their ability to communicate attitudes, feelings and situations. Also, they can take the form of text-posts, photos, videos and gifs. This sharp rise in popularity and formats have companies jumping on the meme bandwagon and inserting them into their marketing strategies.
