What social media tools can do for your business?

Are you sick of being stuck with no growth on social media? Are you new to social media and looking to grow your business using it? 

Traditional marketing is long dead and far gone–TV advertising, newspaper ads, and road-side billboards are all outdated. Social media has now replaced all of that by making online marketing the norm when it comes to brand promotion. Currently, there are three different platforms that are dominating the social media space–Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok–and they all have their own unique qualities to offer each individual or business. 

If you are thinking about using social media to get your business up off the ground, here are a few tools that you might need to become even more successful.

Why should you use social media? 

Social media, while having been around for a long time in its various different forms, has become the most popular it has even been in the past 10 years or so. This is due the fact that so many more people now have access to mobile devices and Wi-Fi connection. This means that by marketing your brand on social media, your business has the potential to reach millions upon millions of people, if marketed in a desirable manner. Not only will you be able to reach a larger audience, but this audience can be international as well. 

Traditional marketing can tend to be quite pricy. However, social media marketing–unless you’re putting in a bit of extra cash to help you–can literally be completely free. Most social media sites require no sign-up or membership fee, and are completely free platforms. 

On social media it is easy to create brand awareness by following trends and seeing what other people are looking for, which will eventually contribute to the organic growth of your accounts and brand. One of the best benefits of social media marketing is that it can increase traffic to your website, which will ultimately put more money in your pocket. 

Which one is right for you?

There is a relatively large variety of social media platforms, although it is recommended to stick to the most popular ones. Having so many options doesn’t need to overwhelm you though, it’s all about knowing your target demographic and style. All social media platforms are unique and can have different, individual focuses dependent on your particular brand.

This mean that between platforms, the target demographic and and style of communication are completely different. For instance, Instagram is a place where the millennials hang out. Everyone has their own aesthetically pleasing feed to look at and every post is designed down to the very last detail, whereas TikTok is far more laid back and dominated by Gen Z kids. These short form videos can literally be anything you think of. Most of TikTok is not nearly as aesthetically pleasing as Instagram, but it is more authentic and fun. 

All the different platforms require different kinds of interaction from both the brand owner and the followers, from commenting and liking, to following, and even direct messaging. With Instagram having over 900 million users, Twitter, with an average of 152 million, and TikTok reaching an insane number of just over 1 billion users, these platforms are the best social media option for business and brands to promote themselves as they are all relevant and very popular. 

Twesocial 

One of the most important things when it comes to twitter marketing, is expanding the amount of people your marketing reaches. This can be difficult because the number of brands making use of Twitter tools to promote their businesses is rising dramatically, and those who began earlier probably have an advantage. Twesocial is an organic Twitter marketing service that was launched in 2016 to help users grow their account with real Twitter followers, without too much effort and time wasted. 

Twesocial will manage practically every aspect of your account from posting and posting times, hashtags, user interaction, and growing your follower base. Using a service like Twesocial can be very helpful when it comes to trying to get your brand account off the ground because initially it can be hard to be noticed in a sea of other content creators. Twesocial takes away all the hard work, only leaving you with the task of creating your own content. 

Task Ant

Instagram hashtags are such a prominent tool that should be used when social media marketing however, most people don’t really know how to use them correctly or which ones to use. Task Ant, launched in 2019, is a hashtag app that allows you to find the best hashtag for your content, as well as provide solutions to previous hashtag mistakes. 

Making use of an app like this can enable growth for your business by increasing your content’s engagement and reach. There are two different price options: the solo package for those looking to get started, and the growth package to maximize hashtag use. There is something for everybody.  

TokUpgrade

TikTok has quickly become one of the most popular social media platforms around, which also means that it might be a bit more difficult to get your content noticed. Much like Twesocial, TokUpgrade, launched in 2020, claims to increase profile views and visits through organic engagement. They can increase your engagement and target your audience to get real TikTok followers through a series of specific questions, as well as engage with your followers to keep them interested. 

Tok upgrade also comes with two different packages, the regular and the pro, which can either be paid weekly or monthly. It is important to note that this service is a little more costly than the others, but is definitely worth it in the long run as the potential for your brand’s growth is endless.

Counter-Strike: The Shooting Game Taking The World By Storm

Counter-Strike began life as a fan-made modification for Valve Corporation’s much-acclaimed title Half-Life 2. Created by Minh “Gooseman” Le and Jess “Cliffe” Cliffe, Counter-Strike was acquired by Valve in 1999 and saw its first retail release later on that year. Whilst it has never been the commercial behemoth that a series such as Call of Duty has become over the years, Counter-Strike has managed to establish itself as one of the most recognisable faces in the first-person shooter (FPS) genre of gaming, with three major sequels and various spin offs titles, the latest of which, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, was released back in 2012. 

Valve have established themselves as one of the best in the business for continuing to support their games with constant tweaks and updates to keep things feeling fresh and optimised, and this has proven to be the cornerstone for Counter-Strike’s enduring popularity within the video gaming community. 

It has also been one of the biggest driving forces for the Counter-Strike franchise being able to flex itself as the most successful FPS title in the world of competitive gaming, and a huge driving force behind its growth as a multi-billion dollar industry over the past twenty years. With the series continuing its soar in popularity ahead of 2021, here’s everything you need to know about Counter-Strike: the shooting game taking the world by storm. 

Gameplay 

The Counter-Strike series has built a legacy for emphasising team play, communication, planning and short sharp bursts of action, rather than the all-out action approach of competitor titles such as Call of Duty. Whichever game in the series you play, simply running around and trying to kill opponents is not an option at a reasonable skill level. 

The game pits two teams of five players against each other on a map in a best of thirty match. Rounds last 1:55 and teams are split into either the T (Terrorist) or CT (Counter-Terrorist) side. Terrorists can win rounds by either killing the entire enemy team or successfully planting and defending a bomb until it detonates after a forty second countdown. There are two bombsites on every defusal map, and Counter-Terrorists can win rounds by either killing the enemy team before a bomb is planted, waiting out the round timer without the bomb being planted, or defusing the bomb once it has been placed. 

Teams are given an economy for each round that they have to manage, meaning that planning ahead, saving weapons, choosing between armour, utility and weaponry each round can be a crucial factor in deciding the outcome of games even before a bullet is fired. 

All these factors have helped Counter-Strike develop one of the highest skill ceilings found anywhere in the gaming world, and subsequently developed an hyper-competitive professional scene.

Counter-Strike In Esports

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is the latest game in the series and, despite being over eight years old now, has actually seen its numbers soar over the past year or so. Not only is it one of the most watched games on online streaming platforms such as Twitch.tv with hundreds of thousands of hours digested by viewers, but 2020 saw it peak past the one million concurrent player mark several times for the first time in its history. As of February 2021, the game averages roughly 24 million users a month, over double the amount recorded in 2016. 

For the first time in the franchise’s history, Global Offensive was moved to a free to play model by Valve in 2018 and can still be picked up and played for absolutely nothing via Steam even today. 

Naturally, with so many players and so much interest, the competitive scene for the game is one of the most heavily invested in and fleshed out in the entire Esports industry. CS:GO betting has become increasingly popular for events and tournaments right across the world and, thanks to the influx of investment from the likes of Intel, Monster, Alienware and even the United States Air Force, the standard for competition hosting has risen substantially over the past couple of years. 

The very first Counter-Strike tournament was hosted in 2001 for the original game in the series at the Cyberathlete Professional League, and the likes of the World Cyber Games and Electronic Sports World Cup hosted Counter-Strike tournaments in the early to mid 2000s as the Esports industry grew. It wasn’t until the release of Global Offensive in 2012 however that the industry really began to ramp up, coinciding with the boom in popularity of games such as Dota 2 and League of Legends. 

Valve began hosting the very first Major Championship for the game in 2013 at DreamHack Winter, and have gone on to host two annual tournaments ever since. These tournaments tend to carry with them a prize pool of $1 million dollars and are still regarded as the most prestigious events in the game to this day.

WoW Classic: The Big Finale

Measuring Success

With all of the original content being added to World of Warcraft (WoW), and the next possible Classic expansion pack being announced in a manner of weeks, it’s a good place to look back at all of the experiences we’ve had with the game. It’s not a question of if the game is worth it or not because, of course, it is worth it. It’s more of a question of: Did this version of the Vanilla game patch live up to your expectations? The experience of playing this game was a rollercoaster, and not everything went well with the first try. That being said, you have to admit, it was pretty epic. The game stood the test of time these past 12 months, though many had doubted that the hype would last, even the game’s own developers.

The legendary server queues lasted for a while. Respected forum experts had predicted that it would only take a month until the masses will stop flooding into the game, when their first month of subscription ends. However, the experts and prophets were wrong–huge queues lasted until November 2019, when they finally began to thin out. By that time, the developers opened up a few new servers, which, weirdly enough, nobody really visited. They also increased the server’s capacity to accept more players. Still, the hype hasn’t faded away for some time, it was revived for a second wave when the quarantine kicked in. All responsible workers who moved to work from home often mistook the WoW shortcut with other work-related shortcuts on the desktop, which also increased its popularity. Based on all of those factors, the experiment with reviving Vanilla Wow was successful.

The Spirit of Vanilla

What a lot of players liked about experiencing this older version of the game is the feeling of playing a true RPG. All of the older mechanics in the game that made it more difficult and not very player-friendly at the same time encourages players to really get in the shoes of their chosen characters. It’s hard to get the same feeling in Retail (another WoW expansion) with all of the systems and mechanics that make the game’s interaction with the fantasy world as seamless as possible. The Classic game mode feels nostalgic, while also giving gamers lots of new memories like taking part in the server’s opening, or realizing what it means to farm yourself to sleep. Many gamers witnessed the opening of the Ahn’qiraj Gates opening for the first time, which in itself was one of the most essential events in the history of this game. The paradox of the spirit of Vanilla is an interesting one. 

On the one hand, you have the turtle-like speed of leveling in Vanilla, an almost meditative gameplay that creates a unique experience. On the other hand, in 2021, not a lot of us are ready to spend time in something as calm and tranquil. If 15 years ago, this game had too much content, today, it doesn’t have quite enough. We constantly desire to be entertained every second. That being said, there are a lot of ways to speed up the boring routine. One of the best methods to do so is using a WoW Classic boosting that speeds up the progress only when gameplay starts to feel like a drag, making World of Warcraft truly special.

How the gambling houses have shaped the popular taste

The casino industry has evolved a lot over the last few centuries. In Europe during the 18th century, the underground gambling halls morphed into the first legal casinos. Eventually, the same thing happened in the United States, with Nevada’s fledgling Las Vegas providing entertainment for the workers of the nearby Hoover Dam.

From those sawdust-covered floors, modern casinos developed with names like the Golden Nugget in the 1940s. The giant integrated resorts we know today began springing up in the 1980s, and online casinos came into existence in the late 1990s.

Today, most of Europe and a growing number of US states have legalized online casinos, though New Jersey continues to lead the way on this side of the pond, with more than 23 online casinos to choose from in NJ.

At every stage along the way, these casinos have influenced pop culture, changing what we watch, what we read, and what we listen to.

Casino’s Influence on Language

You may be surprised at just how many casino-related words and phrases you use in your everyday conversations. Casino and card games have been around for the best part of a millennium, with blackjack being the descendent of several card games that go back as far as the 13th century AD. 

Having been around for such a long time, words and phrases while playing these games have worked their way into the common vernacular. 

For example, “hedging one’s bets” is a phrase we use regularly to explain when we’re not committing to one particular option to protect ourselves from a negative outcome. In betting, you may hedge your bets by wagering on two opposing outcomes, while in life you might take a job interview while staying at your old job until you see which is the better option. 

All commonly used phrases include “all bets are off,” which can mean no one is sure about the outcome of an event; and “poker face,” which describes someone who is not displaying any emotion.

Casino’s Influence on Music

Speaking of poker faces, Lady Gaga’s hit song is one of the most recent examples of the influence of casino games in music. But there are plenty of others

The country and western singer Garth Brooks had a hit with Two of a Kind Working on a Full House back in 1990. The song leaned heavily on references to poker hands to discuss his relationship with his wife (two of a kind) and the fact that they planned to build a life together (a full house). The song contained betting references all the way through, with links like “I’m her wild card man” and “a real hot hand.”

Other popular songs that have been created by the influence of casinos and casino games include The Gambler by Kenny Rogers, House of Cards by Tyler Shaw, and Ace of Spades by Motörhead.

Casino’s Influence on Movies

Perhaps the most obvious influence that casinos have had on popular culture is in movies. Hollywood loves to set a movie in Las Vegas and its casinos, with at least 92 movies set in the city since 1941. 

Popular examples include Ocean’s Eleven (and its 21’st century remake), Viva Las Vegas, Diamond Are Forever, The Godfather, Casino, The Hangover, and 21. 

Writers often find the excitement and mystery that casinos offer are a great setting for their stories, with films like Ocean’s Eleven and Casino entirely based around the inner workings of the gaming business. 

Others, including many James Bond movies, use casinos in certain scenes as they offer a great way to show the characters outwitting their rivals. A casino setting is also one of the few places where a protagonist and villain could sit in the same room and talk without being forced to attack or fight each other.

Instagram Likes

In this article, you’re going to find the main tricks on how to make your Insta content popular and thriving amongst all the other lookalike content.

The more users register in Instagram’s system, the harder the whole process of online promotion actually becomes. This social media platform is probably the most strict when it comes to new guidelines and rules and that’s the additional reason why developing your content might become a big problem. That’s why paid promo services are much-needed and the offer on the market of these services keeps on growing daily. Yet things are not that easy anyway: because of how huge this market is, there are lots of scammers and indecent promo-managers who use bots and other machinery to promote their clients’ accounts. A chance to buy Instagram likes can really affect your online life positively and further, we’re going to tell you how exactly it can happen.

Remember this: you shouldn’t be trying to fool the techs that work for Instagram, so therefore, you cannot use the services that exist because of bots. Unreal and inefficient likes that are actually no people but just empty pages will lead you nowhere. To get yourself popular on the platform and looking like an already successful vlogger you really need to pay attention to the services that exist because of the cooperation between real people. Finding an agency that sells such services can be hard. Most of the time the opportunity to wind the number of thumbs up works just because a company has a certain pool of fake pages that are able to follow their clients and create a visibly successful profile. 

If you choose to buy fake services, your money will be quickly spent and the results won’t be there, because any social media platform’s techs are currently trying to get rid of all the fake accounts that are present on their website. It happens because people are visiting social media looking for social interaction, and fake accounts are just littering the space, making it inhuman and unhappy. You have to hold on a second and spend some more time on finding a decent company that sells decent services: but do you have time and energy for that? We don’t think so: people who’re trying to create quality content are usually over the head busy and cannot find a spare minute to read a single review. 

That’s why we’re here: we want to give you a small clue on how you can make your life easier: skip the research and come to Soclikes.com as we are the company that cares for their clients at each step of online promotion. We have been on the market for social media promotion for years and we have totally figured out how to work quickly, efficiently and with no risks for our customers. 

Promotion with Soclikes; step by step guide. 

If you’re new and you don’t know much about online promotion, you can always ask for help in the chat on Soclikes.com. We’re trying to always stay online and help our customers as soon as possible. You can ask about something that’s bothering you, you can ask what packages are the best ones to combine with one another and you can also ask for an individually created package if you cannot find something that suits your needs quite right on the website. 

Usually, the delivery itself takes us several hours from the moment that you’ve created your order and have paid for it, but sometimes it can take a little bit longer and can last through 24-72 hours. It all depends on the size of the pack that you have chosen and on the amount of work that our managers are going through right now. In any case, there is no need to worry if a service isn’t coming your way at the same second that you’ve paid for the pack. It’s going to be here in the exact amount that you have chosen and your likes count is going to grow immensely right behind your eyes. And all the likes that you’re going to get will be coming from actual living people who have their own accounts on Instagram and who’re willing to cooperate with us as a promo company, 

Our workers are always here to fix everything as soon as possible and they are constantly active in chat on Soclikes.com. If talking in the chat isn’t quite for you, you can always use our support team email address that you’re able to find in the contacts section. We’re trying to give our clients maximum informational and technical support to make them comfortable while buying from us. We also have tons of paying options available: from MasterCard and Paypal to rarer such as cryptocurrency and some specific online wallets. 

Don’t hesitate and postpone — you’ll never know how great the online promo can work for you if you don’t try it. We have the widest variety of available options and you can always create a promo campaign that would consist of several packs: in our opinion, this method gives the quickest and the most astonishing results in the shortest time.

How To Attain A Stable Wi-Fi Connection Throughout Your Home

There are few things more frustrating than slow internet when you are trying to spend some time online. This is infinitely worse when it happens in your own home yet there are so many people across the country who struggle with poor quality Wi-Fi at home. This is something which none of us should accept and no matter how big or small your property may be, you should be able to count on good quality internet with the maximum speed which is available to you. 

If your internet has not been stable of late, here are some things which you can try out in order to stabilize it. 

High and Central 

Firstly we need to look at the location of your router, if it is not centrally located in the property and it is not installed high up on the wall, then you may be struggling with connection speeds. Much like holding your phone above your head for better signal, the router should be high up for the same reason. 

Check Your Provider

Without going into specifics, it is important to remember that not all internet providers are able to offer you the same speed or the same strength as each other. For example I have recently switched to NodeOne Internet and the speed has increased rapidly because of the fact that they have fiber optic where I live. If there is no technical issues with your gear then checking your provider first is the best way to go next. 

Clear Obstructions 

If your router is not able to get up too high then at the very least you need to ensure that you have removed any obstructions around the router. Microwaves, home phones and even wires which have nothing to do with the internet can impact the router and affect it from doing its job properly.

Second Router

Another option here is to simply invest in another router. These days you can have 2 lines bringing in the same internet connection so there will be no need to have 2 sources of internet in the home. All you will do is input the same WAP password and you will have connection to both, ensuring that your internet problems are a thing of the past. 

Extend Your Wi-Fi

No matter who the company is the router can only stretch so far and what you may find that you have to do is buy an extension which will maximize the reach of the router. Much like when you share your mobile phone data to another person’s phone, you can use a plug-in toggle which works between the router and the space which it is not able to cover, offering further reach. These appliances can be bought at low cost and can make a big difference in the home. 

One thing that you shouldn’t do is accept slow internet for what it is, there is always a solution and you will be able to find it when you start to look.

This special paper stock cover allows you to color Dunbar’s artwork so you can create your very own Space Marine and save the Ultramar system from destruction in this extraordinary chapter of the Warhammer saga!

If I’m going to do a 40K comic as a mature creator I’d like to hit it hard,” Gillen explained in an interview with CBR. “The other part is, as the writer of the first mini in the Warhammer line I get to set the tone for everything else. Also, I get to introduce folks to the world. You asked me how I would explain Warhammer to somebody? I’d do that by giving them my mini.”

Make Happy Your New Normal

Never has there been a more pressing need for an app that makes happiness possible every day. And while mindfulness mobile apps are a dime a dozen, The Happy Habit app’s distinctive aesthetic sets it apart.

Designed and developed by Melbourne app development company, Wave Digital, together with creator of The Happy Habit, Fleur Chambers, this beautifully crafted app guides users to find and savour moments of happiness every day.

Fleur Chambers is an internationally recognised meditation teacher and the voice, creative mind and heart behind The Happy Habit. Her vision – to create a more intimate space for her guided meditations. With an existing following of more than 600,000 people across 30 countries, Fleur’s goal was to create a bespoke iPhone and Android app that made it easier to be mindful every day.

The Happy Habit app supports users to create a daily meditation habit. Features include the ability to select micro meditations, which are no longer than 4 minutes in length, and to set daily reminders. The app also provides access to hundreds of guided meditations designed to help users either create, grow or explore. Users can choose to listen to meditations with music or without. 

What is truly unique about The Happy Habit app, however, is its distinctive visual identity. This was achieved by designing a unique logo and colour palette, supported with idiosyncratic illustrations to breathe personality into a digital product. The result – an exquisite, organic and approachable visual design with a user experience that is intuitive enough to easily guide users on their practice.

Available on iOS and Android devices for free, and with over 750 downloads and almost 3,000 meditations played in its first 30 days, The Happy Habit app is quickly making happy the new normal.
