It simultaneously seems like forever and yet has passed as quickly as a jolly weekend away with good friends. Which I guess is a good summing up of The Media Marketing Co, given the industry we are in and the speed at which it has evolved, as well as how and why we started – and have continued.
Our very own 10 year challenge
In 2009 I wrote an eBook called ‘WTF Can Social Media Do For Your Business?’.
Obviously it was before some of the main social media platforms of today, such as Instagram (2010), Pinterest (2010) and Snapchat (2011), even existed! However, there was still a lot to get excited about with Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn and YouTube.
I can still feel the excitement I felt then, and I am quite impressed I was so spot on with how it was going to evolve and that we rode that wave. As one client said on our 5th birthday in 2014 –
Claire, I remember when you started up and the world was sceptic. Now, the quandary is how to fill the digital gap. Good spot back then – congrats to you all! Natalie Bruins, Marketing Director.
So, we’re going to backtrack through 10 years’ worth of content on our blog for our 10 year challenge. We will be looking at how things have changed and writing a series of articles. Obviously the evolution of Social Media over the last 10 years, but also the changes to SEO, content, advertising, publishing and PR, as well as how businesses have changed and evolved under the influence of social media. Sign up now so you don’t miss them. I can’t wait!
What About the Next 10 Years?
It’s one thing to look back, but we’re always looking forward the next big thing, so I will taking an in-depth look at current trends in business, social media and marketing, and trying to predict where it might be in another decade. A bit daunting given the changes we are seeing in society at the moment, but I was pretty much spot on in 2009 so hopefully I won’t be far off with the next one!
Now, where did I put that crystal ball…?
