My New BFF: The Rise of the Social Media Influencer

Last year, Forbes.com published an article that said word of mouth was the most important form of social media for marketers. The idea was simple: having 100 customers who are passionate about your brand and willing to share it with their network was better than having 10,000 unengaged fans on Facebook. As consumers, we see […]

Apple Watch Puts Social Media on Our Wrists

Yesterday, Apple, the company known for innovation in technology and design, officially came out with its entirely new product, the Apple Watch (which comes in three different styles, Apple Watch, Sport, and Edition). Though customers will need to wait until April to purchase this wearable device, Apple used yesterday’s “Spring Forward” event to showcase some of the features to be expected from its Watch.

The conventional wisdom that once closed its doors to aspiring designers and customers, is now encouraging […]
