Now, as online searches have dramatically moved away from desktops and more towards mobile devices, visual marketing is becoming more important than ever before as pictures and videos are continuing to dominate the content shared online. Visual content in real time
Last month we were very proud to have reached over 1,000 likes on Facebook, and the important part is that all of them were organic likes, as Manifesto Design has never paid for followers (i.e. bought likes). Why does this matter? Because whilst having 10,000 likes may well make your business look popular, it is important to remember the ‘social’ in social media. After all, social media is all about engagement, and having a large number of generic and distant followers isn’t what it takes to make your social media work for your business. This is an issue we see a lot of here in Marbella and a question we often get asked is “My business page has 2,000 likes, but our posts are not reaching very many people or receiving interaction, why?”
As social media experts in Marbella we believe it’s important to keep you updated on new developments and features such as the recently launched Facebook services, so that you can stay on top of the social media game! Last month our social media update blog took a look at the new Facebook messenger code. Today we wanted to make you aware of the new Facebook Services section that has just been launched, which allows local businesses to showcase their expertise in particular fields, highlight their unique selling points and promote the services they offer.
These past few years have seen social media grow drastically along with the sales of smartphones and tablets, which use applications. Apps like Instagram have created opportunities for many social media companies and we’ve even seen the creation of apps compatible only on smartphones or tablets. Although it would seem like a limiting move, some apps have blossomed wonderfully due to this unique selling point. A big part of social media development is software updates and new features that keep users on their toes.
It has been a busy few weeks in the world of social media, with a number of changes and updates being announced across all platforms. In case you missed any of them, we have put together a small guide of the most important updates that we think you should be aware of.
2015 was a great year for Manifesto Design as not only did we gain some fantastic new clients but we also added some talented and enthusiastic new team members.

Social media is everywhere. This new phase of our planet’s development has transformed every aspect of our lives – from the way we conduct our daily conversations to the way we build brand image and transfer information.From the emergence of this innovative form of communication comes a medium that transcends traditional journalism. With immediate and unfiltered content, information can be spread and received instantly by a global audience. On a personal level, this means connecting and sharing ideas with like- minded individuals who would otherwise be separated by land, sea and circumstance. At a global level, we see events unfolding in real time and reported by real people on the ground. This is modernised frontline reporting and some see it as the future of journalism itself.
