Instagram: A Snapshot For Business Success

February 27, 2013

Instagram, the photo editing and sharing app for mobile and tablet has reached stardom. Bought by Facebook for a staggering US$1 billion, it was a solid testament from the social media giant on the future of instant photo sharing.

Putting the power of photography back into the hands of everyday users like you and me, the lure of Instagram is its easy way to capture and create beautiful shots for instant sharing onto multiple social platforms. The powerful connection forged between users on Instagram is not to be underestimated; some 80 million are now snapping and sharing away with a passion never seen before.

How can your business leverage the power of Instagram?

First, connect your Instagram account to your existing social networks, like Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and Flickr. The Instagram app is designed to make sharing to multiple platforms a snap so when you take a shot, everyone within your social circle can see, like, and comment instantly.

Second, use hashtag, but sparingly. Clever use of hashtags make it easy for your photos to find new admirers and it is also a creative way to convey a message to your users.

Third, use photos to tell a brand story. Instagram is renowned for its simplicity – take a photo, apply a filter, and upload. Take it a step further to promote your brand on the platform. Product launches, event exclusives, and daily shots are all great material for Instagram.

Fourth, get your fans snapping. Instagram makes it easy for you to get your fans to create content for you. For example, you can ask you fans to snap photos based on a particular theme, and hashtag it. Creating a buzz online has never been so easy, or so engaging.

How are you using Instagram for your business?

How to Use Social Media During Emergency

February 24, 2013


The increasing influence of social media is undeniable. It is a multi-tasking platform spreading promotion, awareness, and information across the globe within seconds. With its vast audience and speed of sharing, social media can be used to spread awareness about an impending natural calamities, such as hurricanes and tsunamis.

Government offices around the world now have specially created pages on social media where the public can ask queries and get information on a one-to-one basis regarding natural disasters. These social media accounts can also offer readers an up-to-date status on changing emergency conditions.


Not only used for prevention, social media is also being used to generate funds for rehabilitation of the disaster struck areas. After the Haiti and Japan Earthquakes, people used Twitter, Facebook, and blogs to keep track of the whereabouts of their family and friends, as well as offer donations and voice their solidarity with the disaster victims.

Hurricane Irene generated 12,000 tweets alone, providing instant access to information about the disasterous hurricane’s course and after-effects. Videos uploaded on Facebook and YouTube moved viewers into action through rescue relief and donations to help those most effected.


Social media can bolster the social networks of post-disaster survivors and, in turn, prevent the negative consequences and quicken disaster management efforts.

The Great War of Microblogging: Twitter vs Sina Weibo

February 23, 2013

With Sina Weibo launching an English platform to entice microbloggers to use its service, the battle ground is drawn. While both Twitter and Sina Weibo have their own merits, the decision to go for either or both is not an easy one.

PRDA Asia recommends that you evaluate both platforms with these findings.

With its engaging features such as Medal Reward System, Hall of Fame and rich media integration, Sina Weibo bodes well with entertainment and celebrity content. Twitter on the other hand stays true to its simplicity-is-king philosophy and is therefore an appropriate platform when it comes to business and professional content.

Though Sina Weibo is also available in English, a large majority of its users are in China and write in Chinese. Businesses wishing to enter China market will do well on this platform.

On the other hand, Twitter is largely a non-Chinese platform. Apart from its high usage rate in the English-speaking business world, increasingly more China companies reach out to English audience on Twitter.

It is also crucial to point out that, unlike Twitter whereby freedom of speech is upheld by-and-large, Sina Weibo accounts are regulated by the Chinese officials. Tales of government censorship and content control are rife. Twitter exists in a free yet mature market, while Sina Weibo exists in a less free, and growing market, so consider this when you decide to use Sina as a microblogging platform of choice.

Your choice between either platforms will depends on your target audience, business purposes and languages used.

Twitter: Fastest-Growing Social Platform

February 22, 2013

Social media is the biggest phenomenon to hit brand awareness and marketing in recent years. With more than a billion users and a net worth of the same value, Facebook is just one of the top social media giants out there. With increasing numbers in social media platforms and users, Twitter is now exceeding Facebook as the fastest growing social media platform.

The last quarterly report for 2012 by Global Web Index indicates a whopping 21% of the internet users use Twitter on a monthly basis, equal to 288 million monthly active users. The number of Twitter users increased by a sharp 40% in the last quarter of 2012, with users in USA increasing by 94%, but Hong Kong takes the lead with active usage. Twitter has altogether grown 714% since July 2009, with only 35.47 million monthly active users.


How did these sharp figures come about? One reason could be that the number of smartphone users has seen an increase this past year, with active mobile internet usage increasing from 37% to 43%. Furthermore, advertisements, sports and media personnel have given Twitter the exposure it needed. With every brand boasting a Twitter account, it was only a matter of time before Twitter gained significant lead in the race as the next social media giant.


With such a rapid growth in social media marketing, companies are eager to reach an ever-growing audience and consumer market. Contact JamiQ to see how we can help your business expand on social media.

Using Pinterest To Pin Your Business To The Leaderboard

February 21, 2013

In the age of oversharing, engaging your users using visuals (instead of text) seems to be the new trick on the social network block. The beauty of carefully curated photos and the love for liking, sharing, and commenting seem to be a match made in heaven, and Pinterest is one of the best platforms available at the moment.

You will do well to enlist Pinterest in your social media network; here’s five tips to get you ahead of the pack:

#1 Confirm that images do, in fact, represent your business

As a visual platform, Pinterest can only work its magic if your business and images go hand-in-hand together. It is a no brainer for fashion stores, restaurants, travel operators and beauticians to hop onto the bandwagon, but can it work for a financial institution? Make sure you you can utilise Pinterest’s platform for your specific business.

#2 Keep it nice, keep it clean

The layout of Pinterest is incredibly clean and pleasing to the eye. Pin your images with care, and be selective. Organise them into appropriate themed boards so that your users can enjoy your content most easily and most efficiently.

#3 Share the love

As a business, it is natural to promote your own content, and yours exclusively. However, the key to success on Pinterest is the value of the community. Be sure to balance your Pinterest with self-promotion and sharing other pinboards and images related to your business for success.

#4 Make your content shareable

This may seem obvious, but you may be surprised by how many businesses that forget to make their content shareable. Images on your website should be made instantly pin-able to Pinterest using the available plugin. Make it easy for your users to show you some pinning love.

#5 Get inspired… by your competitors

The idea is not to steal, but to learn. Browse around pins and boards of other similar businesses, and learn why some are more successful than others. This could serve as a great jumpstart to your Pinterest effort.

Everyone loves a good visual, so start pinning today.
