Pinterest for Business

You may be on top of your game in terms of your business’ social media (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Linkedin), but most businesses aren’t aware that using Pinterest may be just as beneficial.

If your goal is to stand out from your competitors and to further develop your company, then Pinterest might be just the platform you need to experiment with next! As an informal, visual platform, Pinterest is the perfect way to bring a sense of fun and creativity to convey a less formal side to your business and really connect with customers.

Snapchat Backchat

You may be aware of the latest developments in the world of Social media. As of yesterday (Tuesday the 2nd of August), Facebook-owned Instagram launched a new ‘Stories’ feature, which bears a remarkable likeness to the popular photo and video-sharing app, Snapchat.

Visual Content Marketing: Give it a Go!

We often associate content marketing with written pieces, including blog posts and online articles. However, the visual aspects of digital marketing such as striking graphics, captivating videos and attention grabbing images are also regarded as important elements of content.

We have worked closely with BST for a number of years and were involved in the creation of the organisation’s refreshed logo and original website, so were thrilled to be given an opportunity to tender for the new project.

Could Social Media be the Key to Politics?

MAXX has recently shared quite a few extracts from our favourite blogs and publications about how social media has been used in the US Republican and Democrat nomination campaigns, particularly a certain Donald Trump. But could social media be set to influence one of the biggest votes in British politics: the EU Referendum.

Video Marketing- The power to draw in potential business

If you’re feeling like you’re neglecting something from your list of marketing activities, it’s highly likely that video marketing is the missing link! Online videos are swiftly becoming one of the most popular ways for people to search for information on services and products. With 52% of marketers worldwide naming video as the type of content with the highest ROI (Business to Community), businesses and brands across the globe are rapidly discovering that video enables them to communicate more efficiently and effectively than most other forms of content (regardless of the industry!).

Introducing Holly Snowdon

Hello, I’m Holly, the new girl! Once upon a time the thought of being the new girl was an incredibly daunting prospect. However, as soon as I entered the warm, creative atmosphere of the MAXX office (complete with charming old beams and multiple bowls of brightly coloured sweets), all the usual ‘new girl’ worries seem to ebb away.  Having been greeted by each employee with a warm smile and a few friendly words, I was instantly made to feel at home at MAXX and I hope to soon become a valuable member of the team!
