The Branding Before Christmas

As if the crisp chill in the air, increasing wattage of fairy lights and introduction of gin baubles (yes, really, this is not a drill) wasn’t enough of a giveaway, the arrival of Christmas 2016 has officially been heralded by several hours worth of new festive adverts. Forget that sap Monty the Penguin, motheaten Mog the Cat and the slightly-too-melancholic Man on the Moon, this year’s seasonal stars have landed and stolen the nation’s fickle hearts away, ready to get people spending. However, amongst the trampolining dogs, mutilated carrots (very festive Aldi) and animated characters revelling in the ‘simple joy [...]

The Changing Face of Influencer Marketing

For anyone even slightly invested in the digital world, it’s hard to imagine it without ‘the blogger’. Rarely is a new product launched or promoted these days without a recognisable face from online realms merrily endorsing it, and social channels would be nothing without regular visual updates of influential blog writers’ latest exploits. Rewind even a mere five years however, and the term ‘blog’ was only really associated with weekend hobbyists, unchecked ‘Livejournal’ templates and monthly posts about recalcitrant pet cats. In an almost unprecedented ascent of the digital media ladder, bloggers have gone from overlooked dabblers, straight to the [...]

Building Brand Reputation – Everybody’s Responsible

Although undeniably important, link-building is just part of increasing brand awareness. Here at SESOME, we like to focus on reputation rather than just link building - we believe achieving links is just a happy byproduct of designing and delivering engaging campaigns. Link building for its own sake used to be the preserve of the lone (and slightly myopic) SEO, and in all honesty, few purely SEO-based endeavours are likely to succeed. With the increasingly negative perception of link-building, not to mention the threat of penalties, this silo-ed approach is now neither recommended nor effective. These days, ranking in Google directly [...]

A Tale of Two Brandings – how to build brand loyalty in the social age

Back in the olden days, when the internet was still a madcap idea and meals came largely in cans, advertising a product was fairly straightforward (despite what Madmen may lead you to believe). With single brand names and iconic commodities like Hoover, Post-It and Jacuzzi monopolising markets, persuading consumers to choose your product was simply about any advantages it had over the existing behemoths. Unsurprisingly though, things have moved on in the world of marketing. Now in 2016, the age of Instagram stories and live tweeting, the entire manner in which companies are advertising, and who they are advertising to, has [...]

‘Pics or it Didn’t Happen’: The Dominance of Visual Content

It’s an undeniable fact that in today’s digital marketing world, visual content is king. Image-led social platforms like Instagram and Pinterest have never been so in demand, and with newer kids on the block Periscope and Boomerang following close behind, the power of a visual cannot be understated. However, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this phenomenon isn’t that new a thing. After all, the notion that ‘a picture speaks a thousand words’ has been woven into our collective conscience for hundreds of years - so why has visual content only become so unquestionably dominant in the last few? To contextualise [...]
