Location. Location. Location. Facebook Real-Estate.

Progressive Media Concepts - Social Media Marketing and Management
If you are looking to buy a new piece of property, we all know the value of that real-estate increases depending on the location. Whether it’s waterfront, lakefront, beachfront, by a train station or in the middle of nowhere North Dakota, value is dependent on location. So how can we use location as a benefactor when it comes to online marketing?

Facebook has the answer…
…Geo-targeted updates. What we mean by this is Facebook now allows its users to geographically target an audience by language and country down to a specific city. This may not seem very beneficial to small business owners or up and coming artists who have not established a large following, yet in the broad spectrum of marketing, this is a very valuable tool.

The Beauty of Blogging

27 Dec

The Beauty of BloggingWhile creating and building Progressive Media Concepts’ blog sites, our team came across the differences, unique functions, and importance of WordPress, Tumblr, and Blogger. First off, each blog offers a variety of themes that are designed for use on their specific site. As a blogger, you have the option to choose from an array of free templates, or pay a one-time fee for a theme that is not as widely used in Blogland. The themes provided by WordPress and Tumblr are formatted in such a way that there is little room for layout customization. Blogger has a smaller selection of themes, but allows its users to rearrange and add page elements. You are capable of placing gadgets anywhere you want with Blogger, which helps to de-clutter the page and give it a more symmetrical look.
