Track5 Does Dallas

The ladies and gents of Track5 have just returned from our company excursion to Dallas last week for our attendance at the 2014 Great American Trucking Show.

Initially, I was concerned that I might be out of my element there but to my chagrin, quickly I felt like I belonged. In fact, by the last day I had traded my floral dresses in for

Twitter Hacks: Baiting Followers

One of the most relevant industries in the internet market is social media. It’s almost as if social status has turned literal, whereas some people’s relevance is actually determined by the amount of likes they receive on a Facebook status or by the number of followers they have on Twitter.

Tips to Make Your Blog Go From Blah to Bitchin

 

Everyone and anyone can frolic around all day and complain about how annoying social media is, how it’s taking over the world, and depleting the need for face-to-face communication. But, let’s face it. This day and age we are completely consumed by the recognition and praise we receive when people “favorite” or “like” our thoughts, accomplishments, comments, etc., on social media. It’s our, the commoner’s, way of feeling like celebrity; it’s our guilty pleasure.

Pin to Win: How to Use Pinterest for Marketing

Earlier this summer, the premier website for optimistic women who post wedding ideas even when they don’t even have a boyfriend, launched their
business sign-up. Now, companies can use new features like analytics and promoted pins to get the most exposure on the web.
