Storytelling Can Bring Your Brand to Life

By | Asbury Park, Branding, Eatontown, Graphic artist, Long Branch, Marketing, NJ, Oakhurst, Red Bank, Small Business Marketing, West Long Branch | No Comments

The Year of the Story: That is the label that has been given to 2014 and, with content marketing becoming one of the top marketing strategies among businesses, this came as no surprise. The Kickstarter campaign that started out asking for $10 to make potato salad yet ended up making over $55,000 showed us the true power of storytelling. People contributed, not out of necessity or desire for potato salad, but simply because they could relate to the story presented and wanted to be a part of it. Another story we saw making waves last year was Coca-Cola’s Share a Coke campaign, where people were compelled to get a Coke for a friend with their name printed on the bottle. This wasn’t about telling the public a story. It was about giving the public the ability to tell their own delightful…

Is Linkedin worth the time?

By | Asbury Park, Branding, Eatontown, Facebook, Graphic artist, Graphic Design, Instagram, Linkedin, Long Branch, Marketing, NJ, Oakhurst, Pinterest, Small Business Marketing, Social Media, Twitter, West Long Branch, YELP! | No Comments

Do you get business from Linkedin? I’ve been on linkedin since 2003. I have over 45 recommendations, 900 endorsements, and 1,500 connections. I was even recognized by Linkedin for having one of the top 5% most view profiles on linkedin in 2012. Yet as far as I know I’ve only gotten a handful of clients here. When I compare Linkedin to other social media platforms it just doesn’t stand up. I hear Social Media experts tout Linkedin all the time, but I wonder if they are just trying to sell or justify their services. SO my question to you stands: Is LinkedIN worth the time and if you are finding success on Linkedin how are using it? Thank you for your comments.

New Design Trends for 2015

By | Advertising, Asbury Park, Branding, Design, Eatontown, Graphic artist, Graphic Design, Long Branch, Marketing, Oakhurst, Red Bank, Visual Communications, Web Design, Website, West Long Branch | No Comments

They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but let’s be honest … a pretty cover doesn’t hurt when it comes to your marketing. That’s why — whether you’re creating lead generation content, social media content, calls-to-action, or infographics — your marketing materials should always be as visually appealing as possible. Great design always wins over a weaker design and visual communications has never been more important then it is today. That said, here are a handful of design trends that The Graphics Guy of West Long Branch NJ feels will drive better RIO in 2015 1. DYNAMIC WOMEN Unique lifestyles. Original looks. 2015 is all about the interesting female. Instead of cliché, over-idealized images, we’re saluting original, surprising women — quirks and all. 2. LETTERBOX LOOK Filmmakers got the memo years ago. Now the wide format is all the…

Why Most Social Media Experts Suck at Their Job!

By | Advertising, Asbury Park, Branding, Eatontown, Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, Long Branch, Marketing, NJ, Oakhurst, Pinterest, Red Bank, SEO, Small Business Marketing, Social Media, Twitter, West Long Branch | No Comments

Most Social Media Marketing Experts Don’t Deliver! If there has ever been a title that has been overused, it would likely be “social media marketing expert.” Everyone seems to know at least one person out there who has called themselves a social media expert, but not everyone really seems to know one that is able to deliver the amazing results that they promise. Most people also know how to use Facebook, twitter, or Google Plus, but does that necessarily make them a de facto expert? Absolutely not! Just like knowing how to use a hammer won’t make you a master carpenter, just knowing the mechanics behind Facebook is not enough to make you an expert in social media. Sadly, most social media experts only know the mechanical or technical side of social media marketing, and that’s just not enough. Social…
