best 3 min fudge sauce

The Best 3 Minute Fudge Sauce Recipe!

"This is a family favorite. When I was a kid my mom would buy a store made Angel Food cake and serve big fat slices of it for dessert with this fudge sauce on the side - it’s so good you’ll want to lick your plate clean. Fabulous on ice cream and especially banana splits! It’s decadent, delicious and goes fast! If you have any leftover (not usually the case in my house) it’s even amazing cold. Try it by the spoonful when the kids are asleep!"
- Beth Foreman aka A Media Marketing's Data Ninja!


Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1 square chocolate (or 3 tbsp cocoa)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • dash of salt

Directions:

  • Boil for 1 minute at full boil
  • Cool
  • Makes enough for 4-6 dishes of ice cream

The AMM Team LOVES the Fudge Sauce samples!

amm video tips

4 Tips On Expert Videography:


1. Rule of Thirds
Imagine that your video screen is dived by 4 gridlines into 9 equal pieces. Line up your important visual elements on the lines or where the lines intersect for a better composition. Enable the camera grid on your phone to help you use the rule of thirds, also you want to have little headspace above your subject.


2. Mix Up Your Shots
Use a mixture of shots to keep your audience’s attention. Mix it up with wide shots, close ups, still shots – once you master these three then try some moving shots (pans, tilts and zooms). The more experience you gain the smoother it will become for you. Take different shots of what you’re talking about to mix it up. Move back and forth between your face and the subject that your discussing.


3. Shoot Horizontally
Make sure that your camera is set to shoot horizontally and focus the camera where your face is going to be (lock the focus on that spot). Hit record when you’re ready to roll.


4. Video Editing
Use your preferred video editing program – add a beginning and end, text, lower thirds, transitions, music and voice over if needed. We recommend using iMovie on your iPhone!

how_to_increase_website_traffic_in_five_steps
What’s one common goal that the majority of business owners have in common?

To maintain a successful business that continues to attract and engage more customers. Your ideal audience is searching the web daily looking for the specific brands, businesses and services that suit their needs. Don’t let the right audience pass you by! A Media Marketing’s website team is excited to share five excellent tips on how to increase traffic to your website!

Step One: The Fast Lane Is Paid Advertising!
Paid search, paid search engine optimization (SEO), social media advertising and display advertising are the quick and popular routes to drive more traffic to websites.

  • Paid search = advertising with sponsored listings of a search engine or a partner site by paying either every time your ad is clicked (pay-per-click - PPC), or when your ad is displayed (cost-per-impression - CPM).
  • Paid search engine optimization (SEO) = the process of maximizing the number of visitors to a specific website by increasing the visibility and having the website appear on the top of the list of results that is returned by the search engine.
  • Social media advertising = allows business owners to target their ideal audience and drive instant traffic and conversions with Facebook, Instagram Twitter, and other social media channels.
  • Display advertising = online advertising that comes in a variety of visual forms, including banner ads, rich media and more. Display advertising uses images, audio, video, text, flash and more.

Strategize how you’re going to build your brand and achieve higher website traffic for your business. The right audience has to be able to easily find your website online and on their mobile devices! Define your paid advertising objectives and decide how much you want to spend to reach your target audience. If you’re looking to grow sales on your website, then include targeting high commercial intent keywords as part of your plan to increase website traffic.

Step Two: Make Your Mark On Social Media!
Social media is one of the best and most proactive ways to reach your target audience. Establish your business or brand on social media and begin to engage your customers on some of the popular channels like: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and Pinterest. Select the social media channels that suite your business and begin to maximize your audience! Create a social media content calendar for 30, 60 and 90 days to help you strategize your message overtime, plan for your holiday announcements and monthly highlights. Allocate a social media budget for your content calendar and make sure to run ads and boosts specific posts to amplify your message.

Step Three: Create A Wide Mixture Of Content!
The last thing you want to do is make your audience bored or unsatisfied with your website, content and social media marketing efforts. In order to avoid driving business away, make sure to create a mixture of content that varies in kinds and sizes. The more diverse content the better! Remember, your audience consists of different people who are going to prefer reading various kinds of content. Create a wide assortment of content for your website and social media channels to satisfy the different kinds of readers in your audience. Mix in short and sweet social media posts, video blasts, attention-grabbing photos, text blogs, infographics and data driven content for the biggest impact. Promote the variety of content on all of your social media channels.

Step Four: Grab Attention With Eye-Catching Headlines!
Amazing content cannot go far without an attention-grabbing headline! Don’t let your rich content go unread due to the lack of researching your headline. Think of headlines as search terms, what are the most common searches for your content’s topic? Begin to research popular headlines and search terms for your content to maximize your reach. Take your time when deciding what is the correct headline, don’t rush it and think in search terms.

Step Five: Don’t Forget About On-Page SEO!
On-Page SEO isn’t going away anytime soon, it’s sill a crucial and very important part of your website and content.

  • On-Page SEO = optimizing the individual webpages to rank higher and gain more relevant traffic in search engines. On-Page SEO includes content and HTML source codes.

Spend extra time building your on-page SEO correctly and reap the benefits of increased website traffic and audience growth. Create internal links that promotes new content, be very specific with your image alt text and use detailed meta descriptions. On-page SEO will be your new best friend for growing organic website traffic.

facebook_video_ads 

Facebook is one of the best platforms for business owners and brands to connect and reach their target audience. Video ads on Facebook are a very powerful and beneficial tool for increasing user engagement. Make an impact on your audience with these tips for better video ads on Facebook.

Make A Lasting First Impression!
Take a moment to think about how many posts the average Facebook user sees in their newsfeed. There’s not enough time to read and pay attention to every post. Facebook users actively scan their newsfeeds and make quick decisions about what posts they pay attention to.

Successful Facebook video ads have to catch the user’s attention in two to three seconds and have a short duration, usually thirty seconds or less. When video ads fail to catch the correct attention, they result in low engagement rates and little to no outcomes. Take a look at how your Facebook video ads are performing and analyze your audience retention to see what is working best for you. If you’re audience’s organic retention is dropping after the first couple seconds of watching the video, then you need to change your video ad algorithm.

What are some of the most common causes of low audience retention for Facebook video ads?
• Long introductions or any introduction
• Too many logos and credits at the beginning
• Cramming too much information in one video
• Lack of entertaining visuals and music
• Talking heads without context
• Poorly made video How To Improve Your Facebook Video Ads:
• Make the biggest impact on your audience in the first few seconds
• Engage your audience and make them curious about what comes next in your video
• Multiple videos in one series, keep your audiences’ attention with cliffhangers at the end of the videos!
• Prompt your audience to watch more videos on your website
• Deliver your message as quickly and best as possible

Eye-catching Thumbnails Increase Views
Take the time and go through the selection of video thumbnails that Facebook gives you to choose from. If you aren’t finding the exact visual your looking for, upload a custom thumbnail. The less text on your thumbnail the higher priority Facebook will give your video ad. Even though Facebook removed the 20% text limit for images, they still prefer and favor images with less text for thumbnails and posts.

Create Custom Video Audiences
Strengthen your Facebook video ads by creating custom video audiences. Facebook has updated the option to create custom audiences from video based on how long they’ve watched your previous videos: 5 seconds watched, 50% watched, 90% watched, etc. Combine audience engagement for multiple videos to result in a more effective custom audience and create effective lookalike audiences. Analyze your custom audience and learn more about the users who are engaging with your content with Facebook Audience Insights.

Maximize Your Video Views
Once you start to build your Facebook campaign, you’ll have an option to choose an objective to maximize your delivery. Select whether you want to run your Facebook video ad to generate more conversions, drive traffic, increase post engagement, improve reach or maximize video views. We recommend setting the Video Views as the ad objective for the most successful results. Is your campaign objective set to generate clicks and conversions? If it is Facebook shows the ad to users who have a higher chance of clicking the link. Sometimes this results in a lower video retention because the audience isn’t watching the full video before they click the link. 

Carousel Ads and Video Options
Are you trying to drive your audience to an external website? Videos catch attention and strengthen your link or carousel ads. Amplify your message with video and cover more information than just a plain old static image. Take it up another notch by customizing your video’s headline, link description, call-to-action buttons, etc. You can even use multiple videos in a carousel ad and really engage your audience.

Don’t forget, keep your videos short!
Remember, the attention span of the average user is shorter than a goldfish, who are believed to have an attention span of nine seconds! Make short high quality videos to convey your messages and use them as attention grabbers and grow your brand’s recognition. Start using videos on lead generation campaigns to really maximize results!

Target Mobile Devices Connected To WiFi
Many users have deactivated the Facebook auto play option to save data on the mobile plans. If they haven’t deactivated it and aren’t connected to WiFi, then the video may perform slowly or stop working which can hurt your video’s impression and drive your audience away. Don’t pay for impressions if they are going to possibly be a waste of time and money, especially if your audience can’t enjoy watching your video ads on WiFi. Select the placement at the Ad Set level of your campaign to adjust the Facebook settings.

High Quality Video Content
Once you’ve mastered how to get the most out of your Facebook video ads, you now have to start making high quality videos! Your audience is going to decide whether they trust you and want to do business with you through your videos. High quality video content makes a lasting impression, keeps your growing audience engaged and continues to promote your business.

amm-new-twitter-updates-2016

Get ready to do more with Twitter’s 140-characters!

Is it hard to believe that Twitter began with simple 140-character text messages?

Twitter has continued to evolve into an artistic and creative canvas for users to express their text messages with photos, videos, vines, hashtags and more. Recently, Twitter has included new abilities for users to create polls for their community, interact with GIFs and share Periscope broadcasts.

What other cool new options will Twitter have for us next?

Changes that will simplify Twitter:

  • Tweets will no longer count characters for @names, replies and media attachments (photos, videos, GIFs and polls).
  • Twitter replies with not be deducted from the 140-character count.
  • Media attachments including GIFs, videos, polls and quote tweets will not use any of your valuable characters.
  • The ability to Retweet yourself is coming back! Once this change takes place, you will be able to quickly Retweet or Quote Tweet yourself - when you decide to share a new thought or bring more attention to an important tweet.
  • @Usernames on Twitter will no longer use the @ sign to reach all of your followers. After this change occurs, users will be able to Reply or Retweet it to reach a wider audience.

Expect these Twitter Updates for 2016 to take place over the upcoming months!

Why are there so many new Twitter updates?

More room for the freedom of word expression accompanied by everything you would love to share! Twitter wants its users to feel the ease of conversing with others, without having to worry about a restrictive 140-character count.
