Starting a blog is a great way to better user engagement and educate users about your products and industry. Check out these blogging tips to help you get started.

Blog Efficiently.

To best maximize your blog posts, lifestyle pieces are a must.

Social Media Management

Do’s and Don’ts of Social Media Management

Ever wondered what habits to do and to avoid for social media management? We’re here to help.

Does your business regularly engage in social media? Are you tweeting, liking, and Googling your way to company success? If so, you may already know the best social media practices to follow. In the digital world of business brand building, there are some standard do’s and don’ts of social media management.


This is, without a doubt, the most difficult of the social media platforms to be successful on. The endless changes to the newsfeed algorithm forces you to review your strategies and results continually. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Don’t worry about page likes.
  • Do be concerned about post likes, comments, and shares. These three functions tell you what content engages your followers, and what to should post more of.
  • Post different content, ranging from videos, text, images, and links.
  • Leave at least 3 hours between posts in order to let content sit and establish the most reach.


Ever managed several accounts on Twitter? You’ll know that this platform requires patience and discipline.

  • Make good use of relevant hashtags, and tag users on every Tweet. Irrelevant hashtags can damage your content, as well as attracting spam accounts.
  • Retweet content that you find relevant and interesting, especially from local businesses and users. This gives followers a better user experience and captures more referral traffic.
  • Avoid over-Tweeting at all costs! There’s a sweet spot where 4 to 7 tweets a day is ideal, too much is overkill, and too little is useless.
  • Post at various times during the day so that followers get fresh content on their feeds.

As you can see, there are certain guidelines to follow if you want to get the best results for your business.

Responsive Design Support Is the Most Important Feature for Your Website

Responsive Design Support Is the Most Important Feature for Your Website

All websites have to be unique to stand apart from the competition, but what do the best websites all have in common? Responsive Design Support.

Websites include features that are unique to their industry and that set them apart from the competition. Some companies may keep a detailed summary of their inventory, others may have some interactive interface, but what do the best and most successful companies have in common? They all have responsive design support. Regardless of your site’s needs, the most critical components are mobile friendliness and responsive design support.

What is responsive web design? 

Responsive design allows a site’s layout to change as the screen size changes. Consumers’ screen vary in size from the monster monitors to the small mobile screens. In order for your website to look optimal on any display, a responsive web design is essential.

  1. Supporting the Multi-Device User
    We live in a world where we can access any website without ever being in front of our computer. Even when we are at home, we may just opt to use our phones or tablets because our computers are in the next room and we don’t feel like getting up. If a consumer visits your website and it doesn’t fit their screen, you run the risk of them leaving and taking their business elsewhere.
  2. Improved Search Engine Rankings
    Google rewards websites when they can accommodate more consumers by ranking your website higher on the search page. As of April 21, 2015, Google began rewarding sites that were built for multi-device support.
  3. Your Future is Open
    Responsive websites give you the best chance at supporting newer devices and screens in the future. If a new device hits the market, you’ll have less to do when trying to accommodate the new technology.

Why Content Marketing Outside Your Niche Is Important

Why Content Marketing Outside Your Niche Is Important

Content marketing that’s outside of your niche or comfort zone can help you reach out to a new audience. 

The end goal of content marketing is to become a leading expert on the topics that relate to your industry. When starting out, sticking to your niche is important because it is your industry, and you have to own and dominate it. But there’s only so much you can write regarding one topic until you’ve exhausted your resources. Before you reach this point, consider writing topics that are outside of your niche to keep your content flowing. It may be out of your comfort zone, but it could be worth it. Here are a few reasons why content marketing outside your niche is important and why it’s a good idea to do so.

Why Creating Different Content Is Important

  1. Reach a Bigger Audience
    Your potential client list has yet to be untapped because your content is hitting such a small target. You don’t have to start aiming outside your target, simply make your target bigger. By writing about other topics, you can reach a larger audience and possibly introduce others to your business.
  2. Increase Social Media
    Utilization of social media is essential for any company in the 21st century if you want to be discovered by potential clients. By covering many fields and releasing that content into multiple media streams, there’s a bigger chance of people finding your social media website and, by association, your brand name.
  3. Keep Your Sanity
    Writing about one topic all day long for the entire year can not only be mentally exhausting, but it can actually hurt the content itself. Even the most exciting topics can become dull after a few weeks. Mix things up at work, and mentally, by writing about something new. (Your mind will thank us.)

Stromsoe Insurance

Stromsoe Insurance is a huge name in the industry, so we knew that their website had to wow visitors. Because of this, the homepage opens to a full-page image. As we all know, a picture is worth a thousand words, so why not let the visuals do the talking? The use of large imagery and straightforward statements is a refreshing change from the text-heavy sites that now look outdated.

Stromsoe Insurance also features a blog, one of the most powerful tools for online marketing. A blog boosts SEO rankings and generates more organic traffic, as well as demonstrating expertise in the insurance industry. After all, who doesn’t want to work with a professional in the business?
