A Beginner’s Guide to Fargo-Moorhead Hashtags

Since the movie Fargo and the TV show Fargo have been produced, a perception of what people are like around here has been developed: laden in fuzzy down parkas, braced against the cold as we unconsciously exclaim “uffdah!” at any given moment, and drawing out our vowels when we talk. Ya, you betcha.

#HighFiveFriday to @FargoConnect for Keeping It Social at #FargoConnect16

When it comes to social media and events, taking offline conversation online can make all the difference for engagement. Encouraging attendees to share insights and connect with others digitally opens up another way for participants to connect with one another. And what’s more, individuals who may not be able to physically be at the event can follow the conversation via social media, expanding the overall reach and broadcast of an event as a whole. The team behind @FargoConnect knows and embraces this, which is why they’ve earned this week’s #HighFiveFriday.

How the 80/20 Rule Can Inspire Your Content Marketing

As content marketers, we generate a lot of unique, original content. And most of the time, the creative juices are flowing enough that coming up with content is easy. But, no matter how good we are, we all have those days. Those days filled with moments of quiet frustration and staring at our computer screens. So, we search Google for the latest viral hit to use as inspiration. (What really caused Chewbacca mom to take over the internet? We may never know.) It’s times like these where marketers wish they had some sort of cheat sheet full of content marketing ideas and strategies […]
