Earned media and customer engagement are two of the primary uses of social media for business. With high-quality content and influencers, companies can build large committed audiences. However, you can no longer market to those who unfollow. Fruitland Buzzstream surveyed 900 social media users to find out why users unfollow, and what behaviors companies should avoid. 21 percent of survey participants said they unfollow brands that post repetitive or boring content. 19 percent say they would unfollow a brand on Facebook if the brand posted too often more than six times a day. Other activities that cause users to unfollow are offensive activity by brands, and content unrelated to the brand.

Those in charge of charity budgets are met with a tough job; fully dependent on donations and grants, ensuring money is spent effectively is paramount.

We already briefly touched on a number of pro bono opportunities offered by global tech giants in this article, but today we’re diving a bit deeper into the first, and perhaps most important, one: Google Ad Grants. First initiated in 2016, Google’s pro bono programme for Google Ads opened up a world of opportunities to the non-profit sector.
