Micah’s byline top 3 for Muck Rack in July

You might remember us talking about my byline in probably the top website for PR/media folks called Muck Rack. I offered phone pitching tips for PR pros and it performed quite well. As of this posting, my article has 40 shares on Facebook and 150 shares on LinkedIn. I thought that was pretty good, but apparently it’s really good.

Snapchat video traffic catches Facebook

Snapchat video traffic catches Facebook

Is Snapchat catching up to Facebook’s traffic? Not completely, but it looks like their video traffic has finally caught up. Fortune has an article that says that Snapchat’s video views are now five times what they were from this same time last year. That’s pretty insane. Marketers need to take note of this and if you haven’t employed a Snapchat strategy, maybe you should look into it. The article goes on to say that Snapchat’s video traffic is now equal to the views on Facebook: Snapchat’s video traffic has surged to 8 billion daily video views from 7 billion at […]
