“Change is the only constant in life.”
While Heraclitus didn’t essentially coined the phrase with respect to Social Media, it has held true for Social Media more than anything else in the recent years. With Facebook having picked up in 2006, next came twitter, then Google + and now there is a pool of social media networks for millennials, professionals, DIYers as well as for those keen on finding dates.
Actually speaking, Age is not just a number. It can be one of the most relevant demographics for social media marketers and businesses. Infact, 2017 saw social media campaigns being concentrated on targeting ads based on age more than anything else, with Facebook topping that list.
According to the most recent social media statistics, Facebook has been moving toward an older demographic. A 7.6% share increase for senior, among the largest in all demographics has been projected by marketers. The young millennial demographic (18 to 24), on the contrary, is expected by marketers to decrease through the year.
Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr have been trending younger with minimal senior engagement as Facebook grows older. The age group among 25-35 however remains the strongest across the board for all other social media platforms.
The web had quite official become a mobile-first world after the mobile-friendly algorithm update was launched by Google. However, having moved beyond the mobile era, today, we have stepped into the messaging app era. Social networks have been overtook by the Messaging apps as the dominant mobile platform.
Not only do these messaging apps enable users to connect through text or long distance calls but also bring to them their favorite publications, brands, and services. Isn’t it wonderful to have a personalized and consolidated package with everything you love? Even better is to be able to take it along everywhere.
In March, 2016, messaging app proved that social networks were the old hat with combined users on top four messaging apps equaling the combined users on top four social networks. If that isn’t a social trend, what is?
Haven’t we been through the time when first-page ranking on Google influenced the consumer more than anything else? However, with time, our dependency has grown more on online reviews or comments than on what Google has to say. While Google is still in the race, but if it is a purchase we have to final, our search has been lingering more in the social sphere.
88% consumers have been influenced through various online reviews or comments on Youtube, Facebook, Yelp or other platforms. Pinterest plays the biggest role in this monumental shift targeting the largest demographics of shoppers dominated by women with young families aged in early thirties.
While we might believe it is still in the shifting phase, the shift from search to social has taken place already going by data on social media trends. The major share of visitors on websites was once made up by organic search, however, that has now changed. One-third of the traffic to websites is now driven collectively by top 8 social networks.
The first in Political history to harness the power of social media was the Barack Obama Campaign. Now, one of the most important areas for politics has shifted to being social networking websites. Social media is now a necessity and not a novelty for Politicians.
With billions of active users on mobile devices and social media, it is definitely a smart political move to take to social media. Moreover, if data is to be believed, over 66% of social media users do not shy from engaging in political activities or debates. The number is only growing with presidential candidates broadcasting for themselves and against each other on social media.
Don’t we all remember the war of words Donald Trump had with Fox News on Twitter? Infact, his competitor, Hilary Clinton used YouTube to announced her presidential candidacy. Thus, the politics on Social media is definitely a trend still in growth.
Didn’t all marketing campaigns, primitive or modern, aim to deliver a memorable experience for the user. With so many changes, this objective has remained unchanged through years of marketing. Infact, to deliver an experience has only gained more importance with years gone.
The days of successful products delivering commodity are not replaced by the idea of culture. The question then is how is the culture built? It is built on fundamentals of social media by rallying groups together through incentives towards social justice, inclusion into a club or simply a mood.

I did my research because I know a lot of SEO companies exist and wanted to choose the right one for me. Wisdek's reviews on BBB were good and they explained themselves quite well in my opinion. I approached them for a website design and online marketing program. They took the time to understand everything that I wanted to include in my website and made recommendations even before I signed with them to ensure everything was user friendly and also stayed within Google's guidelines. Next, they treated me with respect and advised us of how long it would take to get ourselves noticed online. All reports are delivered on time and everything is explained to us monthly. Due to their efforts I have been able to gain more clients and people to my website so If you are looking for a company that will simplify the Website and online marketing process to you and show you realistic results at a good price, Wisdek is the way to go.
We started working with Wisdek in June of 2016. We have approached them with an idea that shortly became our core business. They developed our website within one month. We were very happy with the process and communications. We just opened our store location and Wisdek's technicians helped us set up email, hosting and Google maps. We are very excited to start our search engine optimization campaign and grow our business nationwide.
My experiences with Wisdek SEO has exceeded my expectations with the impressive scope of the program. Like many business owners, we find it difficult to stay on top of many of the changes and updates on the SEO industry to stay ahead. We have to rely on experts like Wisdek to do all of the research required to keep up to date with the internet visibility needed to support my business. I look forward to the upgrade, and I look forward to a continued partnership with Wisdek.
We've asked Wisdek to develop our new site and we were quite happy how this project turned out. We've got ourselves involved further with Wisdek by expanded into SEO. They've helped us grow our business locally during first three month and thereafter globally. We still work with Wisdek on daily basis.
We've worked with Wisdek right from the beginning to develop and launch our SEO equipped website. We've grown tremendously on account of their SEO and funnel optimization services. Thanks to Wisdek we were able to take our initial steps onto the market in a quick, safe and inexpensive way. We made the decision to jump in with both feet an utilize almost every unique service that they offer and we're glad we did. Today we have over 1 million clients that are getting organized, getting promoted and getting paid using our application.
I’ve been with Wisdek for over 2 years now and I am very pleased with their service. What was promised, was delivered. About 3 months after I started I began to enjoy good rankings across Google, Yahoo and Bing. Also, the cost was not unreasonable! Wisdek’s service delivers more leads than posting an add in an old fashioned printed directory and is more affordable than print listings were 5 years ago!
Today I have expanded my services with Wisdek from my beginnings in SEO, to PPC and Content Network Advertising. The return on investment has been incredible. I truly believe Wisdek offers their clients cutting edge marketing services and puts businesses where people are searching. I would like to recommend Wisdek to anyone who needs consistent leads for their business.
Northgate Chiropractic & Massage Therapy Centre in Calgary has used Web based advertising and marketing since 2004. As a result of continual investment and effort, our web site always came up first in local searches. The payoff came 3 years ago when people really began to use search as a way of finding our services. Last fall, our internet traffic slowed considerably and we noted that our search listing had dropped from first on page one to the middle of page four, literally making us disappear.
One of our service providers, Eran Hurvitz of Wisdek, explained to us that Google had changed their rules for search and were imposing a penalty on our web site for having back links. (The very thing they promoted previously as improving our web site standing). This penalty resulted in our listing being dropped to page four. There were thousands of these links and it looked like a significant job to remove these links. Eran offered the services of Wisdek to clean up these links and petition Google to remove this penalty. It was initially estimated to take 3 to 6 months to complete this task. To our great pleasure, Wisdek achieved the penalty removal in just over one month. We are now back on top for our local area and are very pleased with Wisdek’s service.
I would strongly recommend Wisdek and for web based service.
Wisdek has provided me with a service I need to make my business grow. It has saved me a substantial amount of time by outsourcing and has allowed me to generate more revenue and build more customer relationships.
My clients are international, there is no better way to reach them than online!
Our Firearm Safety Training business did not exist before we started working with Business Media and Wisdek. Business Media built us a beautiful SEO-Ready website from scratch that is now pulling in leads left right and center. Wisdek applied their most affordable SEO package for local coverage, and it was so effective that we started to rank all across the PROVINCE!
Business is so good that the phones are now ringing daily. We are happy to report that we will be opening a second location as well as a massive firing range in the next few months to capitalize on the overflow. We are actually going to upgrade our campaign with Wisdek to push our business even harder!!
