Trending at TwoSix: Story Extenders, Facebook Traffic, and Millennial Meeting Planners

This week we are encouraging our readers to:

  • Extend the stories of their blogs
  • Find out what the best time is to post on Facebook
  • Engage millennial meeting planners

This blog will provide you with the tools you need to get started on these timely tasks. Let’s get started.

Tip of the Week: For each blog, identify two story extenders to keep the engagement rolling.

One of the worst (and most common) blogging mistakes, is post and run! Don’t leave your content behind, and extend the story. Before sharing your blog, identify two opportunities to extend the story across another channel.

Here are some examples of story extenders:
Relevant Pinterest Board
YouTube video
Facebook photo album
Twitter poll
Snapchat Lense

How can you extend the story of your next blog? If you are stumped, consider signing up for a Tactical Content Planning Process with TwoSix Digital to ease the process.

Fact of the Week: Facebook’s highest traffic occurs mid-week between 1 and 3pm.

Tisk tisk. Looks like the majority of people are having fun on Facebook during business hours! Regardless, this is an interesting factoid for marketers to know.

NOTE: This is not necessarily the best time to post. Generally, it is recommended to post between 7pm and 9pm. The best way to find an ideal posting time is to look at your Facebook Insights. Once you are in your Facebook Insights, select “Posts”. There, you should find a graph which shows when your fans are online (both days of the week, and times of day).

This article explains four interesting tactics that real DMOs are taking to attract young meetings planners. These tactics include immersive landing pages, UGC campaigns, VR tours of spaces, and (believe it or not) cookies.
