Fresh Ideas for Making the Most of the Web
10 Social Media Goodies to Share for May the 4th
May brings two fun social media promo opportunities - Mother's Day and May the 4th, aka Star Wars Day. Most of you can come up with a creative promo Mother's Day idea but if you're looking for something unique and geeky, go for Star Wars. "May the 4th" is a lispy reference to "May the Force be with you". In terms of online marketing, it's a fun way to tap into Star Wars mania and connect emotionally with your audience. Get your May the 4th goodies!
New! Pixel Lava Partner Program
Most of us ask for recommendations or read reviews when searching for everything from a restaurant to a new car. I've always offered a simple referral commission and I recently realized that my favorite projects have come to me this way so I'm expanding the program. Now anyone can sign up as an Affiliate and earn $80 commissions. Fellow graphic artists, marketers, agencies etc. can sign up at the Colleague or Team Member level to expand their service offerings, grow their revenue by marking up my rates, and get access my Partner Portal packed with special perks. It's a win-win! Sign up this month and get a free Referral Card Power Pack by mail with your custom cards in an artsy case with a cool Pixel Lava sticker. Why not sign up for free right now?
May is for Moms Too
If you're not into #MayTheFourth, be sure to take advantage of the more universal holiday Mother's Day - it's on May 13th. For most businesses and nonprofits it's a great opportunity to come up with some kind of creative coupon or greeting, just remember to use the hashtag #HappyMothersDay to get the best audience reach. And in the meantime, happy Mother's Day to all the Moms! ~ Ame
