Social Media Aarrgghhhh

Friday, February 17th, 2012

There’s facebook and twitter and reddit and linkedin and youtube and googleplus and stumbleupon and on and on and on.

And now there’s a new kid on the block. Pinterest is just one more social media site that businesses will worry about not being on. Apparently, it has just overtaken twitter, google+ and youtube (see story) so it’s something that has grabbed everyone’s attention.

Business and social media

So should business be on these social media? Should we be on all of them? Are we just wasting our time and resources or is it free advertising - at least until they’re monetized and then we can move on to the next one!

Does anyone remember myspace? Myspace was the biggest thing since sliced bread - millions were on it and everyone said it was the place to be. How many businesses put resources into that just to see it dwindle once it got monetized and everyone moved on.

Will Pinterest go the same way? Or will it be the next facebook? And if it does, will facebook become the next myspace?

From a business perspective should we be on these systems as actual people representing our business or should we just leave it to the kids, and use our time developing advertisements to show on all systems. A bit too old-style?

The new way to advertise

Has the game changed completely and is this the new advertising medium. Instead of spending on google adwords and msn adcenter, should the budget be re-allocated to employing someone full-time to build and maintain a presence on all these fronts.

Let’s face it, it’s so time consuming if you want to have a proper relationship rather than just push out promotional material once a day. That’s a big cost but one that could be borne if we could definitely say that it brings a ROI.

So, as the girls on the L’oreal commercials say, “because, I’m worth it.” Or am I??

What I want to know is whether the traffic converts? All very well, telling me how many clicks these sites are giving us, but are they just looking or are they buying?

Leading online resource offers the greatest collection of teddy bears for Valentines Day

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

That time of year again is almost upon us, the time where love, passion and sometimes even heartbreak, spill over. February 14th is the undoubted day of joyousness, the one day in the year it is both acceptable and actively encouraged to publicly convey love for one another. For some Valentines Day is nothing more than a glorified commercial opportunity, for others, it is one of the most memorable days of the year and for the remaining, it is a period which is neither cherished nor dreaded, one which simply arrives once per year. Valentines Day is perhaps most exhilarating for the secret lover, the individual who can no longer resist the lure of another. Teddy Bear Friends is the online home of the internets most impressive selection of valentine’s bears – ideal for all partakers – expectant girlfriends, hapless boyfriends and eager secret valentines.

Valentines Day can, for some, be an intricate balance. Failing to impress a long suffering girlfriend will result in the inevitable - the individual being placed firmly in the dog house for indefinite periods of time. Presenting the unexpecting boyfriend with something overly provocative, something perhaps a little feminine and risk denting his fragile ego. Worst still, reveal for the first time, a lacklustre valentines gift to a secret valentines and say goodbye to any ideas of long term romance. This is where Teddy Bear Friends is so very useful, providing the ultimate collection of teddy bears for Valentines day which includes an impressive range of Valentine bears for all genders, tastes and budget sizes.

For the animal loving, Teddy Bear Friends boasts an adorably cute Valentines bear range to satisfy even the most devout. How about the ‘Valentines Day Jumbo Puppy’? This little guy sports a red bow, is covered in jet black fur and carries a plush red love heart – the cutest canine to be had this Valentines. Or why not consider the ‘Little Panda Bear’ – innocently wearing a beaming love heart whilst staring on affectionately – the ultimate signal of showing he cares. Customers can also purchase Valentine teddy bears of real individuality, one which boasts a message of true personality. Whether the customer is ‘Head over Heals’ in love or simply wants to shout ‘Be my Valentine’, there is a loveable gift to suit all.

Leading Teddy Bear Friends website offers this season’s cutest love

Friday, February 3rd, 2012

Nothing says “I Love You” more compassionately than the delivery of a cute bundle of teddy bear affection. The staple of the love struck valentine, the love teddy is one old favourite which can not fail to impress. Regardless of the effort expended, for the lucky recipient, to receive an ‘I love you teddy’, is like receiving conformation of passion. It encapsulates all the little nuisances a person sometimes fails to convey ordinarily – love, affection, admiration, longevity, romanticism, the list could continue. The problem lies of course, with choosing a bear which combines class with affection, one which could, by no means, be confused with tack and impulse. Teddy Bear Friends is the online home of the teddy bear shop, hosting a range of this Valentines Day’s most memorably adorable love bears.

Who says a love you bear has to be restricted to the female realm? This Valentines present is one which is as versatile as endearing. Many a boyfriend or husband would be equally as pleased to receive such a gift. That is the point of Teddy Bear Friends, due to the enormity of bears on offer; customers can select one which is entirely suitable for their needs. If buying for a lucky girlfriend, customers may opt for a love bear more decorative, one more decadent and covered in hearts. If buying for a male on the other hand, something a little plainer, one which is cute and distinctly boyish would suffice. In this instance ‘Lenny Lion Musical Gund’ may be more appropriate, combining aspects of masculine prowess with hardcore rock and roll.

As well as the vast collection of cuddly love teddy options and fluffy animals, there are those which could appeal to the tastes of either sex. The ‘Kyndall Frog Gund’ is one such example – a lovably cute fictional frog, clad in the softest green exterior and clutching at a very large heart. The heart reads ‘Hugs and Kisses’ – what better or more adorable way to showcase ones feelings to a loved one?

Having selected the ultimate ‘I love you teddy’ customers can finish off their shopping with the purchase of one Teddy Bear Friends equally gorgeous Valentines Day cards. So, if in search for something original this year, be sure to review the love bears at
