By Jennie Lyon / November 4, 2019

Do you know what a hashtag is? Or how to use them? Do you remember the very first time you heard the term “Hashtag?” Nowadays, if you are even slightly aware of social media, then you know what a hashtag is.

Well, here is a quick primer that will explain everything…

The Anatomy of a Facebook Ad

By Jennie Lyon / October 1, 2019

Writing a Facebook Ad is easy, right? You throw together some text with an image and watch the clicks roll in! Uh, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but that’s a surefire way to end up with a Facebook Ad disaster! Social Media Ad creation is an art onto itself. Much like writing all kinds of social media, it’s a unique mixture of both marketing copy, target research and graphic design meant to attract the eye, intrigue the mind, and eventually, lead the user to your Website or Landing Page. There are a total of seven elements…

Adapt Your Social Media Content Across Every Social Media Channel

By Jennie Lyon / September 10, 2019
JLVAS How to adapt your social media content across every social media channel

Cross-country marketing can be a fascinating thing. Companies can take the exact same product but market it entirely differently depending on the country they are in. For example, there might be completely different advertising campaigns for a product like Pepsi in Mexico, Canada, and the United States. This is despite the fact that they’re all located on the same continent, two of them primarily speak English, and it’s the same product. It all has to do with local conventions of the media, cultural differences, and values when it comes to marketing. Marketing on social media is a little bit like…

How to Create a Core Lead Magnet that Converts

How to create a core lead magnet that converts

Does your website have a core lead magnet attached? Imagine this: You’re looking for a digital marketer (a pretty big stretch, huh?) You go onto a website, but the only things that are offered on it are paid products. There is no real way to see what kind of content they create for free. Instead, you have to go in blind and hope that they can meet your content creation/social media/email marketing/ funnel creation/ technical needs etc. And for some, that can be too high a price. Now, when you come to my website, I offer free content right off…

Ignite Your Business with My SEO Tips!

By Jennie Lyon / August 20, 2019

I’m sure that you’ve visited websites that read… a little bit oddly. They keep mentioning the same word or phrase over and over again. “If you’re looking for the best car repair in West Palm Beach, Florida, then you will want to visit our West Palm Beach car repair shop. We offer the best car repair service in West Palm Beach, Florida. WEST PALM BEACH!!!”  This kind of search engine optimization is a holdover from the early days of search engines. Back then, they could be fooled into thinking that your site was a leading one simply by stuffing it…

Recycling Your Old Content: Give New Life to Your Blogs and Opt-Ins

By Jennie Lyon / June 11, 2019

If you’re new to Jennie Lyon Digital Marketing & Virtual Assistant Services, you might not know this about me: I’m a big believer in recycling. Wait, did I say “believer?” I meant fanatic! For years, I’ve had a sister company called Sweet Greens, all about taking care of the planet. One of my favorite things to do is walk over to the beach with my son and pick up the bottles and other garbage that accumulates down there. And, as you can imagine, when you embrace clean, environmentally-friendly living, it can impact every other aspect of your life. And that…

Are You Connecting with Your Audience via Video?

By Jennie Lyon / June 4, 2019

Remember the old adage for those with gigantic cable packages? “300 channels and nothing’s on?” That certainly isn’t a problem anymore. Ignoring the phenomenon of cord cutting (I mean, how many people really want to pay for cable today?), you can find just about all of the entertainment that you want from Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, YouTube and other video services. Streaming video has mostly replaced traditional cable, offering people the ability to watch whatever they want, whenever they want. You no longer have to scroll through guides to see what’s on. Instead, you just type (or speak!) what you…

Pinterest: The Big Secret of Social Media Marketing

By Jennie Lyon / May 7, 2019

If I asked you to name the biggest social media networks, what would immediately come to mind? Facebook, of course. Twitter would probably be up there too. Some people in a younger demographic might say Instagram (A rapidly ascending favorite). One that you might not think of is Pinterest, and that’s a real shame. While most people only think of Pinterest for personal use, its application for business and social media marketing is rarely used to its full potential! How Pinterest Works If you’ve never used Pinterest, you need to know that it works a little differently than most other…

The Framework of a Great Social Media Campaign

By Jennie Lyon / April 30, 2019

When you were a kid back in elementary school, did you ever trace? Tracing was like a gateway into drawing. You just put a piece of paper over top of the original and draw a copy. No, it wasn’t your work, but it was a great way to learn the basics. I’ve always found that frameworks act in much the same way for learning a new skill, like creating a social media campaign. When you first start out, you might not have a clue how all of the moving parts work together, but if you have a framework to base…

Take a Break from Social Media with the Help of a Virtual Assistant

By Jennie Lyon / April 23, 2019

Have you ever thought about deleting your Facebook account? Trust me; you’re not alone. There comes a time when everyone feels fed up with all of the social media drama: Terrifying news stories about privacy issues, “vaguebooking” when your friends post vague and worrying statuses, or just the general feeling that everyone else is living their best life but you (spoiler alert: they aren’t). When this kind of thing happens to my friends, I almost always suggest taking a break. You can deactivate your accounts for a while and take a breather, no problem. That is, you can for your…
