Just like to share the verse that blessed me today:
Matthew 17:20 NIV
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. ”
All too often the way brands interact with millennials on social media feels stuffy and detached. But as a major destination for the 18-34 year old demographic—41% of our U.S. visitors, according to comScore—we’re in a unique position to see what really works. Today we’re sharing a few things brands can do to make content that resonates with millennials.
Tip #1: Share normal human experiences.
This shouldn’t be hard: Millennials are people too, you know. They have the same feelings and emotions as everyone else. Bond over that, like with AT&T’s happy dance.
Tip #2: Make ‘em laugh.
If you’re funny, be funny. If you’re not, you can still get a smile out of them by helping them escape their normal lives. Patagonia inspires people to take adventures. Keds gets some help from celebrities. And Wendy’s takes cues from popular culture.
Tip #3: Use memes wisely.
Things move really fast on the internet and there’s nothing worse than being two months late for a meme. Such lame. Many smh. The great thing about Tumblr is how long content circulates on the network (a third of all reblogs a post earns happen 30 days after the initial post*). That means you can focus on evergreen content like this enduring and endearing piece from Madewell, which was published more than 18 months ago and is still earning notes.
We can’t tell you what’s best for your brand. All we can do is encourage you, as a marketer, to think about content that you’d post your personal blog. That’s how you’ll make content that actually resonates with the community.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 ; For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
at times my faith weakens,
i let certain situations and materialistic substances in this world cloud my vision and i lose sight of what really matters. Nothing in this life lasts forever. When life is “good”, sometimes i find myself becoming infatuated with ideas, and aspirations that matter only to shallow, selfish, greedy, materialist people. I catch myself slipping, falling closer to the false promises that this world has to offer, and farther away from what God wants me to be, and what He wants me to do.My head gets blown up with the idea that i have total control over my life, and that i can decide how things go. i have tendencies to plan precisely, but not once have my plans gone accordingly. my realization is no; i cannot control what happens to me, nor can i control how things unravel themselves. I can’t control the outcome of situations, and I can’t control who will stay, who fades away, who will become my next closest friend one day, then leave the next.i cannot control who likes me and who doesn’t. I do not have complete control over what might happen tomorrow or the next day. And even though i tell myself i don’t need anyone, i can’t do things alone. i can’t do anything alone.
i need to start over.
I need to learn to Let go, and Let God.
“ A creative person has to get up and present their ideas; it’s a lot harder than dancing in front of people. We have to create an environment that’s fearless.”
