Team Caffeine Bold Blend

Team Caffeine’s Bold Blend is our Friday boost of inspiration to help you kick start your weekend.

This is content we’ve hand picked from across the Internet because it gives us a buzz we know you’ll love too.

In this week’s round-up you’ll discover your true colors:

Whenever we’re asked how to succeed on social media, one of our first tips is simply to be a good person. Do what your mamma told you. Don’t lie or cheat. Listen before you speak. Be interested in other people.

That’s probably why this infographic on The 10 Social Media Superpowers resonated with us. The superpowers are actually powers we all have. Listening, sharing and being unpretentious, to name just three. Go have a look and see if you’ve got what it takes to be a social media marketer.

Talking of being a lovely person, we were delighted when Mercedes Bell dropped us a line to share an article on using Twitter Vine in education. Even if you’re not a student or an educator, you’ll learn a ton about how to engage your Twitter followers with video.

Lastly, if you want to get on with people then you’d better be good with names. In conversation, remembering and using a person’s name builds immediate rapport. That’s why email marketers will start mass emails with the first name of the recipient. Personalization works. And now you can do it on your website as well as in emails.

Bonus trivia: What’s the only time you want zero engagement on Facebook? Find out here.

Until next week, keep it buzzing!
