With over 400 million people using Instagram Stories every day, there’s no denying that there's a large opportunity to reach potential clients within the platform. Instagram Stories create an incredibly versatile platform for sharing and amplifying content.
The Facebook Pixel is the way of the future, shaping the way we optimise our social ads. Like a digital super sleuth, it inconspicuously observes our online behaviour, taking notes for future reference (or in this case, future ads).
It’s been an interesting month. Facebook continues to run televised ads on its privacy commitments in the wake of user concerns and an increase in account deletion. Meanwhile, Snapchat’s Australian user count has risen after the roll out of new features.
Influencer Relationship Management (IRM) draws its roots from Customer Relationship Management (CRM).

Basically, it covers anything necessary to maintain positive and strong relationships between businesses and their influencers.

When emojis first broke onto the scene in 2010, business professionals had one of two reactions. Either they took no notice of the messaging update or they had an instant loathe for the little yellow smileys.
