With more time at home in isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic, people are turning to social media more than ever before. Now at an all-time high, social media use is an avenue for staying connected with loved ones, political engagement, shopping, and so much more. While financial institutions seek to take advantage of this massive, concentrated audience, the tension of general economic unrest can make it tricky to navigate the best ways to connect.

No matter how well the intention should have played out, a campaign that falls flat often loses all the stakeholder support and is replaced with new efforts. That can be stressful whether you are in in-house marketer, a freelancer, or an agency under contract.

Posted by Alexa Audet on Jun 30, 2020 1:30:00 PM

 

There's an old saying in marketing called The Rule of 7. Discovered by former advertising executives of the 1930s, the Rule of 7 is the average number of times a person must be exposed to your messaging before taking any action.

It was largely reactive, rather than proactive and responded to the trends of the day, rather than setting trends. As professional marketers expanded the social media space, being proactive and building trends became the pathway for much of the traffic.

I remember the first time I heard about a business social media app, like Facebook, but for adults or work. I was in high school. I took a class that was supposed to get me ready for the real world. More than just building a paper resume, the course was designed to help me think about career aspirations, what I would do, and where I could go. One of our focuses was setting up a LinkedIn account to open our eyes to the world of online networking.
