Despite the many tools we use in today's working environment to try and keep on top of our heavy workload, whether it be online ‘to do’ lists or an incredibly organised Google calendar, it is still incredibly easy to find ourselves distracted by even the smallest of things in the office.
With the recent boom in the vlogging industry, Vloggers have become interactive digital celebrities with brands taking note of the vast array of partnership opportunities to enhance PR and digital strategy. However simply working with Youtubers isn’t your only option when it comes to using Youtube to expand your brand’s awareness.

Social; it’s really not going anywhere. In fact, according to a recent study from Econsultancy and Adobe it formed a much bigger part of a marketer’s arsenal than predicted in 2014. The study of over 6,000 marketers concluded that social was last year’s most exciting opportunity for 16% of them. That’s joint third on the list with mobile, and only 1% behind both content marketing and customer experience. Additionally, with Facebook and Twitter incorporating more enhanced advertising technology (such as Multi-Product Ads or Relevance Scores on Facebook and Product Cards on Twitter), it’s only going to get easier to convert customers from the social networks!
