Future of Corporate Communication: The (Cat) Meme

My friends will hate me for saying this, but it needs to be said.

It doesn’t matter how much I try to tickle people’s’ minds – when I share heavier intellectual content on my personal Facebook timeline, I got a like or two, almost never a comment. But if I post a picture of a cat – it goes viral.

What people seem to like to do on social media are simple things: gossiping around, cheer when others post results from their RunKeeper apps, watching strangers’ food pics on Instagram, and smile at funny cats and pass them on.

Will that kind of behavior have an impact even on corporate communication?

Targeted Marketing: 5 Steps To Niche Your Business For Success

I’ll tell you a story about a now closed down business in my neighbourhood. They tried really hard to attract customers. On their sign they spelled out they had pizza, wedding cakes, full english breakfast, or porridge for those who liked it light. They could serve you sandwiches, all kinds of them, or sell you a take away latte if you were on the run. They could bake you the finest pastries or whip up the pasta of your choice. They were open from early mornings to late nights.

They tried to be everything to all. It didn’t work.

All I Want (in My Social Media Feed) for Christmas is You

Dear social media manager,

it’s Christmas time and I’m about to write my wish list. For the sake of it, I would like to clarify that I do not believe in Santa.

Why? you might wonder.

Let’s put it this way: nowadays I’m the one who dresses Santa, prepares his sack and tells him when to ring on the door. So, I’m pretty sure there’s no point sending my wish list to Santa.

Instead I send it to you. (I got a feeling I can get more response this way).
