Portfolio Review: MAS Motoring Social Media Package.

The MAS Motoring Project was an exciting one for Codastar, as it enabled us to create a strong cross-platform brand image for the company – unifying their now strong social status.

MAS Motoring were fairly new to the Social-sphere, so wanted to make a lasting impact on their new and existing friends and fans. As well creating the cover image and integrated the profile image to fit, Codastar put together an “About Us” App with everything they need for social success. The new App features calls-to-action throughout in various styles; from recommend a friend, contact forms, and multiple social media icons.

The new Linkedin business page now includes a branded banner, as well as an interactive image encouraging users to visit/link through to their Facebook page. The services page is now populated with key offers from the company, ensuring that users are left in no doubt in where their specialities lie.

With the recent changes at Google+ HQ, the new page is very much an image-focused one. With a prominent logo and eye-catching cover, the page also features external links to other social sites, as well as a summary of their business and why they deserve your ‘follow’.

Finally, Twitter continues the cool and collected business theme and palates, with strong images and logos ready to kick start their twitter antics.

Hashtags on Facebook explained

Hashtags on Facebook

After a recent episode of the Game of Thrones series on HBO generated 1.5 million mentions on Facebook, it seems almost a perfect time for the social network to roll out hashtags across the board following in the footsteps of Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest. This new introduction will allow users, businesses and brands to interact and track conversations (providing they are made by public pages) and get an idea of the bigger conversational-picture.

Facebook’s Greg Lindley wrote:

“Every day, hundreds of millions of people use Facebook to share their thoughts on big moments happening all around them. To date, there has not been a simple way to see the larger view of what’s happening or what people are talking about.”

What does this mean for business? How will this impact social sales and marketing strategies? Codastar investigates.

Facebook Posting: when to post for maximum engagement?

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..”

Good ol’ Mr Dickens, he had it right all along. Little did he know that when it comes to social media (especially Facebook!) that this is more important than almost anything else you need to know.

Alas, the webisphere is awake 24/7, and we all need to sleep – so how do we keep on top of everything?

After a recent study by Viralnomics, it seems there is more to posting than we first thought.
