Instagram - How To Optimize Your Reach

Instagram: How To Optimize Your Reach

The first thing you see when you visit Instagram’s webpage is their tagline: “Capture and Share the World’s Moments” – which is the purpose for the multi-billion dollar company (now owned by Facebook). What users actually use it for, however, can vary in a multitude of ways. This is great news for businesses because they […]

Reinventing Your Brand - Hudson’s Bay

Reinventing Your Brand: Hudson’s Bay

I briefly wrote about the Hudson’s Bay in my article, “Retail Marketing: Be Seen and Heard”, but I wanted to elaborate on the genius that is behind the mass retailer. Bonnie Brooks didn’t only make The Hudson’s Bay a trendier shopping destination but her business strategy re-positioned the entire brand perception. Reinventing brands is something […]

Facebook Marketing: A Starter’s Guide

Facebook last reported having 1.1 billion active users a month and since its inception in February 2004, it can unanimously be agreed upon that it is one of the most successful social networking sites ever created.

Retro Marketing - Holiday Greeting Cards for Business

Retro Marketing:Holiday Greeting Cards for Business

Who would have thought? The year 2013 and holiday greeting cards are a thing of the past. Or are they? I believe that sending out holiday greeting cards may be perceived as a blast from the past: I refer to it as retro marketing. I also happen to believe it’s a good thing… on many […]

Content Creation - Part of Company Culture

Content Creation: Part of Company Culture

Content creation is used by businesses to showcase their expertise, know-how and provide useful information to their potential target. Many businesses have had to play catch up  and in order to “get into social media” have hired an in-house content marketing specialist… and let them go at it…with a huge sigh of relief.

Leveraging with Mobile Application Development

When we think about a Mobile Application, the first examples that might come to mind may be: Instagram, Angry Birds, or Whatsapp. While some applications are great for socializing and passing time, there is a lot of opportunity for apps to make life easier; to accomplishing a task faster; to finding something in mere seconds.

Leadership - What it Takes to Succeed

Leadership: What it Takes to Succeed

I started at 3H not too long ago – and during my job interview with Miriam Hara (Partner, 3H Communications), I already got the sense that she was a force to be reckoned with. I’ve worked with quite a few female executives in leadership roles over the past decade and I always observe the types […]
