You either love it or you hate it! SMS Marketing has seen a large boom in the last couple of years due to the increased utilisation and strong attachment we now have with our digital hand bricks, also known as our phones. Wherever we enter our mobile number into, whether that’s buying a pair of shoes online and adding your phone number in to the contact information or being scraped from a data base and sent numerous marketing SMS messages. No mobile number is safe in this day and age.
So, the party has unfortunately ended for 2018, but now is the perfect time for future planning and creative forward thinking to kick some marketing goals in 2019.

We live in a society of constantly changing perceptions, opinions, and beliefs. But one things for sure, female entrepreneurs are here to stay, and they're making a greater impact on our overarching society and the business world more than we probably think.

It makes me wonder whether this will be an increasing successful marketing platform that will see skyrocket into more success and opportunities for brands in the future or is time running out for digital influencers?
When a new generation comes about, marketers are faced with a constant challenge of reaching, engaging and connecting with this audience. It estimated in 2020 generation Z will accommodate for 40% of total consumers, becoming one of the most powerful consumer force in the market. Now that’s one scary thought!
As a society and individual's, we feel ever so inclined to express and share our own personalised content with the world. There is a cloud of pressure to display such intimate details to the encapsulating world of social media and its digital spaces. We have built and created a culture where we live to document our every move and moment rather than just living them, in their present form.
Let’s talk business. The increase of company involvement and their integration into the digital world has seen businesses either crash and burn or exceed with flying colours. This is mostly due to their correct utilisation and implementation of SEO.
