UK Ponycon 2018

UK Ponycon 2018

On Saturday the 13th of October, I had the pleasure of attending the 15th Ponycon, held in the Nottingham Conference Centre. I was joined by 999 other pony fans, and let me tell you, it was well worth it! Sadly, as I went without my daughter, I was only able to stay for one day, however much I would have liked to have stayed the weekend. There were many events, which I am sure my 5 year old would have loved- karaoke, destroy the fakie, design a crown etc, but I went purely to stalk all the glorious stalls of...

As lovely as it will be to have a...

Tips for Increasing Facebook Engagement for Businesses

Following on from our recent blog post about increasing Instagram engagement, we decided to share what we’ve researched into increasing Facebook engagement. Due to the new algorithm that Instagram and Facebook are putting into place, many small businesses have been seeing a drop in their engagement (and as a result, their sales). Facebook will also soon be split into a personal feed, and a business feed. This, coupled with the new algorithm, mean that being relevant is more important than ever. Facebook judges your posts relevancy based on post interaction, which means that in order to be seen, your posts need more...
