Week 3A: Social Media and Business

When purchasing products or items from a business they typically send you follow ups regarding wanting a review of the item or service. Therefore if something is to go wrong you can reach out and try to resolve the issue. Most of my experiences with reaching out to a business to learn more about it or resolve something have been pretty good. Although I have noticed for more well known companies they take longer to reply, and don't always understand the point or what you are trying to get across. This can be frustrating but is understandable as they have higher traffic on their sites. 
I believe that using social media to get noticed or for problem solving can be easier. That doesn't mean it always is but it can be. I think that once you put something into the public eye that they feel more pressured to make sure that there is a fix to the problem to ensure they only have positive feedback. For example if you were to leave a review on yelp or under an instagram post people woul…

Week 2A: Social Media Discussion

I believe that social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter are geared more for personal use than for business. Although both sites/apps can help advertise products and share it with others, they seem more personal because people tend to post their thoughts or photos of themselves. People are also more geared to follow people and content they want to see, which is usually lifestyle posts or so on. I also don't believe the initial intentions of either sites was for advertising or promoting of businesses.

For businesses I have seen the use of Facebook and Yelp the most. People are able to leave reviews and rate the companies through these two sites and apps, and therefore I think they're a little more efficient because people are getting reviews and insights from people who have tried "products" or services from these places. I believe that word of mouth is the most efficient way to build up a rep for a company, and that by having reviews from real people it ensur…

Week 1A: My Template

Hello and welcome to my blog! 

I chose this template because I love traveling and nature. Even when indoors using technology (like right now) I hope you can make some time to go outside and enjoy what the world has to offer. When I look at my blog page it is very comforting and relaxing which I feel is important. The color scheme is very pretty and inviting and I hope that it intrigues you into reading and following along with my posts. 

When choosing a template I wanted to make sure it was relatable to me, or something that represented me in a way. Especially since you cannot see me and are only basing an opinion off the words I write. I hope overtime to make my blog more creative and interesting to you, the readers. I like how you can add your own creativity into your posts with the fonts and colors. 

Look forward to posting more soon, and thanks for stopping by! 

Best, Ava
