Posted by sarah.ruzgar in Weekly Tips , August 23rd, 2016


Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few months, there’s little chance that you haven’t heard of Pokémon Go. Just in case, Pokémon Go is an app that allows you to find and catch Pokémon (pocket monsters) anywhere – whether that be in your home, walking down the street, in your park or even in your office. You may remember the popularity of Pokémon the first time around, when everyone was collecting the cards and catching them on their Game Boys.pokemon-go-logo

As with all crazes, the app seemingly appeared without warning and in the space of a week became one of the biggest apps of all time. Suddenly everyone including your mother and your boss are on the hunt for a Charizard. (Fun fact: on 11th July it surpassed ‘porn’ as the most searched for keyword on Google!)

Weekly Tips: Four Ways to Use Instagram Stories & Snapchat to Drive Sales

Posted by sarah.ruzgar in Weekly Tips , August 9th, 2016

weekly tips

Snapchat is the fastest growing social network, growing to 100 million daily active users in just four years. However, last week Instagram launched their new Stories feature, an unashamedly similar feature to Snapchat Stories, as both allow users to post photos and videos sequentially, and are available to view for 24 hours.

The key differences between the two? Instagram Stories is more user-friendly and provides instant access to the stories of the people you follow, making it easier for content creators and brands to share and display stories to their followers. That’s not to say that Snapchat should throw in the towel – one of the app’s most popular features are their humorous filters which can alter the face of the user, make them look more attractive and even swap faces with others. Snapchat is also hugely popular with the teenage demographic, who make up 86% of their user base and may prefer to remain on the more network that has yet to be adopted by their parents.

weekly tips

Next to good performance, transparency and quality are some of the most commonly named qualities advertisers are looking for in their affiliate programme partners. The affiliate channel offers the opportunity to ensure this, firstly each partner and website are approved individually by the advertiser as only valid sales are paid and secondly the risk of low-quality traffic or click fraud is very low as traffic and sales can be retraced fairly accurately in the programme statistics.
