Your top social media questions, answered

Great social media marketing never stops, and neither do all the learning and best practice tips you can pick up about it. In May, we embraced education with a little celebration...of Cinco de Mayo, with a Wildfire twist. All month long, we welcomed our community of fans and followers to submit all their burning questions about social media, marketing, best practices and the like— and in exchange, we'd pick a question a week and answer it in a video, straight from our social marketing expert, Wildfire's Chief Evangelist Maya Grinberg! That was five videos over five Fridays— Cinco de Maya! so

Now that our month-long celebration of social media is concluded (and make sure you check out our June promotion) we're putting all the videos in one place for you, for the easiest access to five weeks worth of learnings.

Week 1: Do you have any examples of brands that have found success in using social to drive ROI?

We sure do! 

Week 2: Do you have any special recommendations on how to build my fanbase and increase social media engagement?


Week 3: What are the best ways to get consumers to share photos and videos that feature a brand?

There are many ways, we'll share three in the video. 

Week 4: How do I get the most engagement from my social campaigns?

It really depends what you mean by engagement, so let's talk about that. 

Week 5: What's the difference between social ads and regular ads?

Social ads are one form of digital marketing, but they have many unique differentiating features that we detail in in this video. Watch below to learn about optimizing social ads, segmenting your social audience, and how social ads software works.

Thanks again to everyone who participated and asked us all their burning social media questions! What did you think of our video series? Tell us in the comments below, we'd love to hear from you.

Perfumes:my favourite right now!

L'IMPERATRICE. I love the fragrances, try different ones and feel the feelings that they give me.
In this moment, my favorite perfume is D&G L'Imperatrice, exotic fruits and pink flowers make this perfume a fizzy but also decided fragrance for a woman with a great personality...a very must-have for my

summer and a pleasure for the senses.
But what is your favorite perfume? I am very curious and always looking for new fragrances...Tell me!

The inspiration: 
Personality: the diva!
Exuberant and dynamic, for L'Imperatrice, life is a movie and she the true protagonist. Everyone turns to his passing, her vibrant magnetism radiates charisma and strength of character.

Succulent exotic fruits and pink flowers pave the way to a musky base. A appetizing combination of watermelon and kiwi balanced by the theatricality of pink cyclamen for an inebriating fragrance: bright and cheerful, incredibly attractive.

L'IMPERATRICE. Amo le fragranze, provarne di diverse e sentire le sensazioni che mi regalano. In questo momento il mio profumo preferito è D&G L'Imperatrice, frutti esotici e fiori rosa fanno di questo profumo una fragranza frizzante ma anche decisa adatta a una donna con una grande personalità...un vero must have per la mia estate e una goduria per i sensi.
Quale è invece il vostro profumo preferito?Sono curiosissima  e sempre alla ricerca di nuove fragranze...Raccontate!
Personalità: la diva!
Esuberante e dinamica,per L'imperatrice la vita è un film di cui è la vera protagonista.Tutti si voltano al suo passaggio,il suo vibrante magnetismo emana carisma e forza di carattere.

Succulenti frutti esotici e fiori rosa aprono la strada a una base muschiata. Una appetitosa combinazione di anguria e kiwi equilibrata dalla teatralità del ciclamino rosa per una fragranza inebriante: brillante e allegra, incredibilmente attraente.

Spring is back

FINALLY. Finally spring seems to be back here in Italy, I was fed of gray and cold days as if we were back in the autumn. And with the return of good weather is also back the desire to take some outfit pictures, finally wearing colored clothes like the blouse and the jacket from Bershka and espadrilles, I was dying to wear them, they are absolutely my favorite summer shoes, matched with my beloved Asos "stained" jeans that I do not know why after just two washes seem to have been narrow at least two sizes. It 's the first jeans I
purchase from Asos and I do not know if this is the rule for their jeans or if I'm simply unlucky.
Spero che l'outfit vi piaccia, vi abbraccio! 

FINALMENTE. Finalmente la primavera sembra essere tornata qui in Italia, non ne potevo più di giornate grige e fredde come se stesse per tornare già l'autunno. E con il ritorno del bel tempo è tornata anche la voglia di scattare qualche foto outfit, indossando finalmente capi colorati come la camicetta e la giacca di Bershka ed espadrillas, morivo dalla voglia di indossarle sono in assoluto le mie scarpe estive preferite abbinate ai miei adorati jeans "macchiati" di Asos che non so perchè dopo appena due lavaggi sembrano essersi stretti di almeno due taglie. E' il primo jeans che acquisto da Asos e non so se questa è la regola per i loro jeans oppure se sono semplicemente stata sfortunata. Fatemi sapere se è mai capitato anche a voi.
Spero che l'outfit vi piaccia, vi abbraccio!

My week end wishlist #5

 NEW WEEK END NEW WISHLIST.Ciao a tutti,come è andata la vostra settimana?Mine full of ups and downs between study, work hardships created by the weather and my birthday (I turned 24, I'm starting to get old!). Now we are in June and the desire for a summer that seems more and more a mirage insinuates itself  strongly in my mind, so my wish list for today is inspired by sun, sea leisurely afternoon walks, in short, a selection of items to dress our summer.
And this time my wish list has something different, because I created it on Stylight, a super trendy comunity where you can find a huge selection of items from the e-shop of all Europe!
On Stylight you can save the pieces that you like most organizing them into boards in which you can add photos, videos, quotes, etc...I found it a very nice idea to express your own style and be inspired by that of others, and there are so many items, I for example I got lost in their accessories selection. If you happen on Stylight, go find me on my profile, now I'm a real addicted!
But back to the point, what do you think of this new mode of wish list? And what about pieces that I have chosen? 
Happy weekend!
NUOVO WEEK END NUOVA WISHLIST. Ciao a tutti, come è andata la vostra settimana?La mia altalenante tra studio, lavoro disagi creati dal maltempo e il mio compleanno (ho compiuto 24 anni, sto inziando a invecchiare!). Ormai siamo arrivati a Giugno e il desiderio di un estate che sembra sempre più un miraggio si insinua prepotentemente nella mia mente, per questo la mia wish list di oggi è proprio ispirata a sole, mare lunghe passeggiate pomeridiane, insomma una selezione di capi per vestire la nostra estate.
E questa volta la mia wish list ha qualcosa di diverso, si perchè l'ho creata su Stylight, una comunity super modaiola dove potete trovare una vastissima selezione di capi provenienti dagli e-shop di tutta Europa! Su Stylight potete salvare i pezzi che più vi piacciono organizzandoli in boards ai quali potete aggiungere foto,video,citazioni ecc.. L'ho trovata un'idea molto carina per esprimere il proprio stile e farsi ispirare da quello degli altri, in più gli articoli presenti sono davvero tantissimi, io ad esempio mi sono persa nella loro selezione di accessori. Se capitate su Stylight, passate a trovarmi sul mio profilo, ormai sono una vera addicted!
Ma torniamo al punto, cosa ne pensate di questa nuova modalità di wish list?E che ne dite dei capi che ho scelto?
Buon week end!

The list:

BamBam printed shorts 65
Steve Madden sandals 129
Roxy swimsuit 70
Rocket Dog wedges 50
Jarlo dress 60
Noemi B headband 66
Le speces sunglasses 59,95
Melissa odabash dress 280
Nixon watch 80
Valentino bracelet 120
