We would also like to give a warm welcome to our spring interns: Sam Clapp, University of Pittsburgh; Sean McNamara, University of Pittsburgh; and Brittany Fradkin, Washington & Jefferson College. OUR EVER-EXPANDING FAMILY From the desk of Taylor Abbett, President of Tailored Marketing Inc. Many of our clients have asked us to keep them up to date on the latest marketing trends. So we are excited to announce the launching of a new lunch & learn series, Marketing U. The first one was a great success and filled up quickly. We are going to hold another session on April 3 beginning at noon for those who could not make the first date. We will be talking about the next generation of websites (see our write-up on responsive web design) and mobile loyalty programs. And don’t worry, we will provide lunch as well. If you are interested please contact Laura or myself. Stay warm, spring is right around the corner! DEAR READERS Over the holiday, we exchanged our view of Station Square for front row seats of all the construction of the Tower at PNC Plaza and the Hilton Spring Garden hotel. We are still in our beloved Arrott Building, just a few floors lower to suite 902. Despite all the heavy equipment commotion, it is nice to have a change of view and new arrangement of workspace to shake things up. Let us know if you want to stop over for a cup of coffee and a game of cornhole. 2013 Green Workplace Challenge Website, Sustainable Pittsburgh 2013 Whiskey Rebellion Festival Promotions, Washington County We have MovedMoved NEW ADDRESS: The Arrott Building 401 Wood Street, Suite 902 Pittsburgh, PA 15222 The Next Generation ofWeb and Mobile Loyalty Programs SAVE THE DATE April 3RD @ Noon MARKETINGMARKETINGMARKETING FRAGILE THISENDUP Taylor’s Office P I T T S B U R G H GreenWorkplace Challenge OverviewHome For Participants Leaderboard Oversight Committee Confidentiality Contact Search The Pittsburgh Green Workplace Challenge (GWC) enables businesses to participate in a friendly challenge program where they can receive due recognition for their sustainable actions and achievements.

With about one third of all internet traffic being driven through smartphones and tablets, if you haven’t gone mobile yet you should. But before you do, if you are thinking about revamping your website anytime soon, maybe you should take advantage of the most recent trend and consider a responsive web design. Responsive web design is an approach to web development that allows the information displayed on a web page to automatically adapt itself, or “respond”, to the optimal layout for any screen. Users are able to easily see all the content on your website while using any web enabled device. The adaptability of the web page is based on screen size, platform and orientation either in portrait or landscape for desktops, tablets and smartphones. Keep a lookout for our redeveloped website that is underway. And if you are interested in learning more, we will be holding a Marketing U event on the topic in April. For more information, contact me at kerri@tailoredmarketing.com. ADAPT TO YOUR AUDIENCE Written by Laura Osmolinski So Facebook has made yet another change to their platform, this time it actually matters and brands should pay attention. The new system, called EdgeRank, determines what content shows up in users’news feeds and ultimately reduces the reach of brands’organic page posts to a more narrowed group of people. This was done in an effort to ensure feed quality and to engage Facebook content relative to specific users. Some skeptics believe that it is just another revenue stream for Facebook as it will likely increase the use of purchased promoted posts (which, with the new algorithm, will have a further reach). So, What does this mean for business? We must simply change our posting habits. This can be done in three main ways. The first is to begin to post more photos as opposed to articles. Photos have proven to get as much as twenty times more engagement than links, statuses or videos. The second is to write more text. More text feeds into the EdgeRank algorithm as being of higher importance rank and therefore will reach more users. A good rule of thumb is to always try and get the“see more”link on your posts. Having consumers click on the“see more”link allows the post to rank higher within the EdgeRank Algorithm. The third, and probably most important, tip is to utilize post targeting. This allows you to segment your fans, a feature previously only available to advertisers. This includes age, gender, all education information, workplace, plus the old options like language, country, state and city. SOCIAL CORNER: FACEBOOK MAKES SOME BIG CHANGES Tech Tip: To see if any site is a responsive web design, just click the bottom right corner of your browser and drag the mouse up and left. If the site layout changes as your window gets smaller, it’s responsive.
