5 Social Media Marketing Trends to Watch Out For in 2018

Results Driven Marketing Your Google Girls and Guys

Make sure to keep an eye out for these five social media marketing trends that are taking over the digital marketing world in the upcoming year.

Social Media Marketing isn't a position for the timid, it is a lifestyle that must be learned, lived and executed!”

— Mike Bannan

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, December 31, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Did you know that on an average, we scroll through at least 300 feet (90 meters) of content daily? Not every brand’s campaign grabs our attention. It is a difficult and competitive game, as brands are trying harder to grab our attention, while our attention span has been reduced to a mere eight seconds. Brand strategy in the coming years will try more than ever to connect with their audiences across a variety of social platforms. It becomes imperative that your campaign works, more so taking into account the speed of feed. We have curated a list of five trends that we believe will impact your social media strategy in 2018.

1. Adopt chatbots: Gone are the days when chatbots meant unresponsive, hilarious and outright ridiculous software. Today, chatbots can do a lot more than just solve customer issues or order pizza for you. Various studies state that 20% of business content could be machine generated by next year. When we teach machines how to create authentic and engaging stories, the potential for advertising and marketing will become multifold. Chatbots interact with the users and deliver the solutions that they are looking for at the speed of light. Bots are developing to become smarter and empathetic. This engagement feels personal, from the user’s perspective. Chatbots are definitely a must-try social media marketing strategy in 2018 for your business.

2. Momentary content makes for good engagement: Snapchat was the early adopter of momentary content. Instagram and Facebook followed suit, owing to the huge popularity of Stories format in a short time. These content are ephemeral and disappear in 24 hours. Brands are creating a whole new digital marketing strategy for their momentary content marketing. Having your stories appear at the very top of your follower’s feed keeps your brand at the top of their mind. Many brands do a live story session with a subject matter expert. This helps the user look out for the brand more so as to not miss an informative session. Ephemeral content marketing strategy is something that you should try in 2018!

3. Augmented reality boom: Augmented reality blurs the line between reality and computer-generated content by enhancing what we see, and hear. The adoption of augmented reality on mobile phones is a quick and easy way for brands to reach their target audience. Many brands are taking their products right inside the homes of users through exclusive filters. IKEA has released an app called Place which allows users to preview how the furniture would look in their homes before they buy. As more people get warmed up to augmented reality, more people will start to feel like they are missing out on things and want to become a part of it. However, you would also have to check where your strategy fits. Make sure your AR adds value for the user and don’t simply create one for the sake of it.

4. Influencers are here to stay: Influencer marketing has grown so much over the last two years that the popularity has made it difficult to know whom to trust. Consumers expect genuine reviews from genuine influencers. Brands must seek to work with relevant influencers with industry background or knowledge. Viewers are already bored of seeing brands engage popular influencers who promote teeth whitening and a mobile phone app with the same vigor. In 2018, try and create worthwhile relationships with influencers and maintain them. Influencer marketing is going to become more authentic with brands moving to real experts instead of social influencers.

5. Make more videos: We are addicted to mobile phones, and we love our videos. In 2017, 90% of the most shared content on social media was in video format. If you are not using videos yet, you will have to quickly start using them and master the art of capturing the user’s attention in the first 3 seconds. Video is the quickest and the closest way you will come face to face with your target audience. As with everything, you need to have a clear strategy before creating a video. Taking advantage of Facebook Live and Instagram Live is also a smart strategy. Ensure that the video is of the highest quality and engaging. You will also have to consider making the best design and make sure to add subtitles to attract users when they are watching with sound off.

Japa Mala Beads Announces Best Selling Mala Beads for 2017

ASHEVILLE, NC, USA, December 28, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Mala bead importer and manufacturer Japa Mala Beads is excited to announce their top 25 best selling mala beads for 2017. Mala beads are similar to a Catholic rosary—malas are beaded necklaces or bracelets and have a tassel at the end. Mala beads are used for counting Sanskrit and Tibetan mantras as a form of meditation in the Buddhists and Yogic traditions. Even though mala beads are considered a tool for meditation, many people are now wearing mala beads as trendy yoga jewelry and as a lifestyle statement.

Japa Mala Beads sold over 2300 mala beads in 2017 in retail and wholesale purchases. They currently have over 160 different mala bead designs in stock. Eighty-eight percent of their malas are handmade in their mala workshop in Asheville, North Carolina. Their other malas are imported from India and Nepal. Japa Mala Beads also carries mala bags, wood boxes, altar sets, and mala stacks in their online store.

Several of Japa Mala Beads’ 2017 bestsellers are classic mala designs that continue to stand the test of time. “Our Snowflake ObsidianWrist Mala and our Rose Quartz and Mother of Pearl Full Mala were both added to our line in March, 2010. Snowflake Obsidian is a powerful protection and grounding gemstone and our customers love that we’ve paired it with Black Onyx to help boost memory, concentration and mental focus” says founder and president Timothy Burgin. “Combining Rose Quartz and Mother of Pearl can have a strong effect on the physical and emotional heart center and our customers are delighted how this mala has encouraged more kindness and compassion in their lives.”

Only one of the 2017 bestsellers was added this year. “Our Rose Quartz and Cherry Quartz Wrist Mala was added at the start of this year and instantly became a big hit,” says Burgin. “These two forms of quartz have a magical effect on healing and removing fear, resentment, trauma and anger from one’s heart.”

All of these top bestselling mala beads are currently in stock. Due to the availability of certain semi-precious gemstones, several of these designs are limited additions that may sell out quickly.

Japa Mala Beads has been making and importing mala beads since 2004. Their unique malas are “designed by an artist and strung by a yogi.” Most of their beautiful mala beads are handmade in the USA using only 100% genuine gemstones. They use the most durable stringing materials available and have one of the best breakage guarantees in the business–108 days! All of their bracelet and necklace malas have suggested Sanskrit and Tibetan mantras listed. Over 160 different mala bead designs available plus over 30 types of mala bags and boxes to store malas or use to gift them.

— Kevin Bruneau

CRANSTON, R.I., UNITED STATES, December 28, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — CRANSTON, R.I. – Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers will ring in the new year in grand fashion with a 379-lot Winter Antiques & Fine Arts Auction on Saturday, January 6th, featuring fine items pulled from several prominent New England homes. The sale will be held online as well as in Bruneau & Co.’s gallery located at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston, beginning at 11 am Eastern.

Kicking off the auction will be 100 lots of fine art from several estates, including pieces from a gentleman’s collection out of Dorchester, Mass. Art will be followed by 19th and 20th century decorative arts, to include fine bronzes, elegant and unusual chandeliers and Part 1 of a collection of more than 60 lots of Chinese Export porcelain out of New York.

The furniture category will feature many large pieces of French furniture, plus several large armoires, marble-top stands and dressers, an extensively carved three-piece parlor set and more. Items of interest will include a circa 1900 strand of pearls by Tiffany & Co.

“This auction holds a sweet spot close to my heart,” said Kevin Bruneau, company president and auctioneer of Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers. “It was exciting to be able to handle and catalog such an extensive collection of fine Chinese Export. Asian antiquities are my favorite category.”

The Part 1 Chinese Export collection (Part 2 will be offered in early 2018) features an armorial blue Fitzhugh porcelain teacup, made circa 1800 for England’s Duke of Gordon and Marquees of Huntley (est. $300-$500). The teacup, formerly in the collection of Helena Woolworth McGann, sits on a finely ground foot rising into a flared bowl. It’s decorated with the Gordon family crest.

Also from the collection is a set of three Chinese Export American sailor sweetheart porcelain articles, consisting of two teacups and a lobed plate decorated with a sailor’s homecoming scene of a woman standing on a shore near a large anchor, awaiting a clipper ship flying an American flag. All three pieces retain paper labels from David Overall Chinese Export (est. $400-$600).

A strong candidate for top lot of the sale is a fine bronze sculpture of a female nude by Mexican-born realist Enrique Alferez (La./Tex., 1901-1999), titled The Bather (1983), 8 ¼ inches tall (est. $10,000-$15,000). “It will be exciting to see how the sculpture performs, seeing that it’s been off the market for over seven years,” said Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. specialist and auctioneer.

A French late 16th or early 17th century oil on board allegorical mannerist painting, depicting the conversion of St. Paul while traveling on the path to Damascus, is expected to hit $3,000-$5,000. It’s believed to be Huguenot (Protestant) in origin, relating to the School of Fontainebleau (1530-1610). The art comes with extensive research and paperwork from several respected institutions.

Original artwork will also feature an oil on canvas still life table-top painting of fruit by Robert Spear Dunning (Mass., 1829-1905), a founder of the Fall River School and a revered still life painter (est. $2,000-$3,000); and an oil on canvas laid on Masonite study painting of dogs in a landscape attributed to Henry Bernard Chalon (English, 1770-1849), framed (est. $300-$500).

Wonderful French Art Deco furniture pieces, from an estate in Newport, R.I., will be highlighted by a pair of circa 1920 figural servers being sold as single lots, each with an estimate of $2,000-$3,000. Both servers are burl veneer and mahogany, standing on reeded bun feet, supporting a shapely body. One is elephant themed, while the other shows birds and foliate and has a mirror.

From the same estate is a late 19th century French three-piece Louis XV gilt and white painted wood parlor set, consisting of two armchairs and a matching sofa, with shapely frames and the upholstery in amazing condition (est. $800-$1,200). And speaking of elephants, a late 19th or early 20th century European Moorish cast iron marble-top elephant pedestal, 40 ½ inches tall, of the finest quality and an exposition-worthy example, has a pre-sale estimate of $2,000-$3,000.

Other lots to watch include a fine and rare Italian Baroque carved walnut figural table stand, made circa late 18th or early 19th century, 35 inches tall, beautifully carved with figured busts of wolves, blossoming bellflowers, putto and more (est. $3,000-$5,000); and a pair of Egyptian Revival bronze bookends by the American sculptor Ephraim Keyser (Md., 1850-1937), titled The Wireless, depicting a nude male whispering into the ear of a Sphinx (est. $1,500-$2,500).

Internet bidding will be made available through Bidlive.Bruneauandco.com, Invaluable.com, LiveAuctioneers.com and Bidsquare.com. Phone and absentee (left) bids will also be accepted.

Jared Hadaway To Host Talent Show For Community To Raise Awareness For Children's Club

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, December 27, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Many schools, camps, and organizations hold talents shows because they are entertaining, involve the community, and give citizens an opportunity to show off their unique skills. Jared Hadaway is planning to host his talent show at the local community theater for the city.

Hadaway is in the early with planning the talent show for students and residents. A committee is currently being organized consisting of students, parents, and local city leaders.

"This committee will be liable for overseeing the planning, promotion, and implementation of the talent show," explains Hadaway.

Funds From Show To Go To Charity
The critical aspect of the talent show has become the fundraising plan. Everything sold at the talent show will go towards the charity the committee chooses.

Shirts, food, tickets, and program money will all go towards the charity. Attendees will have the confidence knowing each dollar spent go towards a worthy cause.

Another offering to the audience will consist of flowers, ribbons, and other favors that they can give performers. Hadaway hopes all flowers and other gifts become donated by local businesses.

"The talent show is a way to bring the community together," adds Hadaway. "Not only the citizens and performers but local businesses and government."

Hadaway has already spoken with local theater officials about holding the talent show. Setting a date will be the next priority.

"The theater has all the technology and stage room for the show," says Hadaway. "Plus, it can hold hundreds of people in the audience."

Separate Prizes For Each Age Group Of Participants
The talent show will have independent age groups and individual prizes for winners. But Hadaway hopes to have gifts for each participant. Again, these awards expect to become donated from local businesses and citizens.

Hadaway has also spoken with students from the local high school about the talent show. The students expressed their excitement to show off their talents to the community, but also help a local charity.

"Students would love to show off non-academic skills that they wouldn't be able in a school setting," explains Hadaway. "From performing music to a special skill, all are welcome."

Planning a talent show takes months of planning. Hadaway hopes a late spring date will bring more students and attendees out before summer vacations take effect.

Because of the months of planning and setting a date for later in the spring season, Hadaway believes students can learn a new talent for the show. These skills and abilities could include magic, musical instruments, or standup comedy.

"Allowing enough time for participants to practice their act and will give them more confidence," says Hadaway. "This confidence will help them on show day and their nervousness."

Hadaway plans many of the parents will help backstage with some of the younger children. A familiar face will assist in hindering stage freight before a child goes on stage.

"Practice makes perfect," adds Hadaway. "I know setting a date for later in the year will help everyone involved. And it gives the committee plenty of time to promote."

Next Step Of Planning
Once Hadaway sets a date and has the local theater confirmed, flyers will become available to various locations in the city. These areas include the schools, shopping plazas, and government offices.

The last aspect of planning is choosing a charity. The committee will decide, and all attendees will know the money will entirely become donated to the cause.

"There are so many charities and organizations that could use the help," says Hadaway. "I wouldn't be surprised if we choose more than one charity and split the funds. Every dollar will help."

In the end, Hadaway believes the community will come continue to support the participants. He also believes that some participants could turn some heads and lead to further opportunities.

Mary Ann Benigno Hopes To Host Community Carnival In The Spring

SARASOTA, FL, UNITED STATES, December 26, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The winter season has just started, but Mary Ann Benigno is already looking forward to the spring. The reason is that Benigno is early plans to host a community carnival.

While this task would be too massive for other individuals to take on, Benigno is excited about the possibilities. While the goal is for all attendees, she also hopes to raise money for a local charity.

"There are many options in a carnival for our community," explains Benigno. "Also, I have to travel miles to attend a carnival. So I thought why not hold one here in our community?"

A person might think a carnival consists of boardwalk games and clowns. But Benigno explains there are more features of a festival.

"Vendors, games, rides, bans, and other fun activities are part of every carnival," explains Benigno. "Each of these different types of activities can help raise money for a charity, but in fun ways."

The plans are still in early developments, but Benigno has made significant progress over the last few weeks. She was able to narrow down a venue and prospective vendors for donations.

"The vast area behind the church would be great for the carnival," says Benigno. "Not only can the open space be used for rides and vendors, but the inside school of the church can also have a use for different activities."

Also, the area will provide enough space for food trucks. These food trucks will be the source of food for patrons during the event. Because each food truck holds their kitchen and services, it will make for easy cleanup when the carnival is over.

This aspect will also allow for different types of foods sold, making everybody able to have their appetites filled. Attendees can decide from traditional carnival food, or get the unique cuisine that will be featured.

"There will be something for everyone; I can promise that," proclaims Benigno. "Not having to hire kitchen members, gather food, and then cleanup will reduce overhead costs."

Plus, the business will be great for the local restaurants which utilize a food truck. Benigno plans to have a percentage of sales for food as donations to the charity.

As for entertainment, Benigno plans on having multiple bands play throughout the day. These groups will range from students to established acts. As for the headliner, Benigno is holding that as a surprise for when she announces the official event.

"I don't want to spoil the surprise, but I will say the headliner is worth coming to the carnival," Benigno says excitedly.

Children should have plenty of games to choose to play. Again, a percentage of money gathered during the carnival will become a donation to a local charity.

Because the carnival will become held at the church, it's appropriate the church programs benefit from this event. Not only will a local charity receive a sizeable donation, but the church will receive funds as well.

The carnival will be free for all members of the community and surrounding cities. This free festival will allow more people to come and participate.

"Rides, games, and vendors will give patrons plenty of opportunities to spend money and have fun," says Benigno. "Everyone will know funds are going to a charity and the church."

The various rides will be accessible after patrons purchases tickets. Tickets will become exchanged for the different activities.

For vendors, different tents and tables will be available for purchase. Any small business can purchase a table and sell their products.

Money from these vendor huts and tables will go directly to the charities. Benigno expects a large turnout so that vendors will benefit from the foot traffic.

"I'm looking forward to announcing final plans in the coming months," says Benigno. "This will be a fun event."

Cooking & Baking Market 2017: Key Players – Amazon, TK Maxx, Sainsbury's, John Lewis, Home Bargains and More

Cooking & Baking Market

PUNE, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, December 26, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ —

WiseGuyReports published new report, titled “Cooking & Baking”


"Cooking & Baking 2017", report offers comprehensive insight and analysis of the cooking and baking market which includes: pots & pans, ovenware, baking accessories, baking utensils and bakeware.
It provides in-depth analysis of the following: the key issues impacting the market, strategies for success, market sizes and forecasts to 2022, retailer profiles, retailer market shares and consumer shopping habits and spending motivations.

The market is expected to decline -1.1% in 2017. This will come off the back of strong comparatives, following a number of years of impressive growth partially driven by the cultural phenomenon, The Great British Bake Off. Inflation is set to hit 1.0% in 2017, double its 2016 rate. This is a direct consequence of the fall in the value of sterling, which is making imports more expensive, and forcing mid-market players to raise prices. This will be offset by the discounters and the grocers showing greater preparedness to take the hit to margins amid an intensifying competitive landscape. Volumes are set to decline -2.1% in 2017 – particularly in categories such as pots and pans, and ovenware, where existing ownership is high and products typically have longer replacement cycles.

TK Maxx
John Lewis
Home Bargains

– Ovenware is set to represent the weakest performing cooking and baking category over the next five years. Products such as roasting trays/dishes and oven trays tend to have longer replacement cycles, making it more difficult for retailers to entice demand.
– Expenditure on baking products is set to increase 10.5% over 2017-22. Expenditure growth in the category is being subdued amid rising maturity and the increasing influence of the discounters. While there are signs that the baking at home trend has peaked, this category should still benefit from relatively strong interest.
– The 25-34 age group had the highest percentage of shoppers stating that they had bought a branded cooking and baking item, at 63.8%. Retailers with a highly brand-led offer should focus on targeting these shoppers, using celebrities or food bloggers that are popular among this demographic to endorse their branded range.
– Nearly 90% of cooking and baking shoppers purchased an item instore while just over 30% bought a product online. This emphasises the importance of showcasing products well instore and online to inspire them to buy.

Key points

– Understand the major trends driving growth in the cooking and baking market such as the popularity of cooking from home and the impact of shows such as MasterChef and the Great British Bake Off on sales. Use this information to better communicate your cooking and baking offer to shoppers.
– Identify the extent to which own-brand and branded items are important to differing shopper demographics as well as the most popular brands in cooking and baking to inform buying decisions.

Kathy Johnson’s 5 New Year’s Skincare Resolution Tips

Skincare expert and entrepreneurial Mom of seven, Kathy Sanders founded FarmMadeSoap.com. She offers hand-made natural goat milk soaps skin types, and are especially sensitive and dry skin and conditions such as eczema or acne.

FarmMaidSoap.com offers 72 goat milk soap choices made with goat milk rich in nutrients that help protect, nurture and moisturize skin with natural glycerin, vitamin A and selenium.

Skincare expert Kathy Johnson of FarmMaidSoap.com offers 5 easy tips for better skin & shares “Requisite Resolution” that helped her skincare business blossom

FarmMaidSoap.com’s toxin-free natural soaps contain nutrient-rich fresh goat milk that protects skin with vitamin A, selenium and more.”

— Kathy Johnson of FarmMaidSoap.com

CORBETT, OR, -, December 22, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — New Year’s Resolutions are usually about less weight and more exercise, but rarely about the body’s biggest organ: skin. Kathy Johnson, who turned her hobby into a national natural goat milk soap skincare firm, FarmMaidSoap.com, offers easy to follow and continue common sense skincare resolutions for great results.

A Mother of 7 homeschooled children ages 7 to 27, Kathy noted, “My FarmMaidSoap.com ‘Requisite Resolution’ is that goat milk soaps I make for my customers be the same quality as soaps I make for my daughter, 6 sons, husband and me.”

Kathy said, “My 2018 Skincare Resolution Tips will improve skin and maybe your disposition too.” They are:
1. Drink 8 glasses of water a day to stay hydrated, but take shorter showers as water dries skin.
2. Avoid toxins in antibacterial liquid soaps the FDA warned about, and skip chemical-laden store brands.
3. Nurture skin with Farm Maid natural soaps as wintry humidity drains moisture & summery sun hurts skin
4. Sleep 8 hours, treat yourself and try to relax to lessen stress.
5. Eat meals with proper balance of protein, carbohydrate and fat along with plenty of fruits and vegetables.

Kathy said, “Farm Maid Soap bars contain the lustrous glycerin other soaps companies remove to sell at high prices. Pampering skin is less about if you can afford good soap and more about if can understand what good soap is and that economically priced natural soap is plainly better for your skin then popular store brand bars.”

“On our farm in Oregon, we make 72 goat milk soap bar choices for all skin types from average to dry or for conditions such as acne, eczema or psoriasis. Made for everyday use our soaps also create a spa-like pampering bathing experience,” said Kathy, who refers to herself as the “Farm Maid” of FarmMaidSoap.com.

Interviewed on shows as NBC’s “Portland Today” in Oregon and iHeart Radio’s “Tom Rotin Morning Show” in West Virginia, Kathy said, “Naturally-nourishing, lustrously-long-lasting and family-fairly-priced, FarmMaidSoap.com’s toxin-free natural soaps contain nutrient-rich fresh goat milk that protects skin with vitamin A, selenium and more, including skin refreshing alpha hydroxyls. Also, I use sustainably-sourced coconut and palm oils blended with skin-soothing non-GMO soy, essential oils and other skin loving ingredients.”

The entrepreneurial Mom of 7 is helped in business by husband Jay and her kids in age-appropriate ways on their Corbett, Oregon farm, which you can effectively visit online at www.FarmMaid.com, which offers America’s widest array of 72 goat milk soaps at affordable prices for all skin types and preferences. Other of her products include Acne Skin-So-Clear goat milk soap, toner, treatment and lotion, Arnica Muscle Rub, goat’s milk lotion, soy candles and more, all online at FarmMaidSoap.com and Facebook.
