  69. 69.

Discuss. • Never design and send as one big image
  70. 70. When to Deliver • Traditionally best • Tuesday / Wednesday - 11am. • NEVER on Friday • Avoid Monday • Aim for people at their desks • Analysis • About 80% of email opened between 5 am and 5 pm • Roughly 62% opened between Tuesday and Thursday • Business customers most likely to open during working day • Personal email accounts are often checked during the day • Consider when you want the traffic / calls.

  83. 83. • When identifying the right social network for your business, consider the following: – Research the social networks that will work best for building your brand – Understand the needs of your target audience – Make connections and talk to people – Share your goals and identify supporters – Measure results – There are so many free and low-cost tools available to you. Use these tools to your advantage. Don’t wait for that million-euro check to come in the mail. It will not!
  84. 84. What posts work best? • Develop a varied post strategy – don’t template every post • Images and Video get most interaction but you have to mix with Status updates to optimise reach • Think Shorthand – posts with 80 chars or less receive 27% more engagement • When sharing company links – use an image with the link and some commentary – 65% higher engagement rate using images • Think frequency – too much is spam, too little could mean not being noticed • Think Humour and Personality – Don’t be shy boundaries – get responses from people
