This summer was one of the best the Mingler team has had. Some of the team decided to launch the summer by taking flying lessons at the London Flight Centre in Elstree. They had a fantastic time and what a great way to kick off this summer's antics!? The next big thing to happen was we got invited to be on the Committee for Watford's Dragon's Apprentice, which sees school teams learn the nuances of the business world and set up their own, with all proceeds going to charity. The summer months were also packed with dancing to a new beat, as we organised Watford's Biggest Charity Zumbathon, which we're pleased to confirm was a big hit!
As you can see, we have had an amazing summer and have a ton of other exciting things lined up...!
The way we take pictures and who we share them with is changing.
Instead of taking photographs of important life events and sharing them with a few people we are now sharing them with everyone on our friends list. All social sites are being engaged with from Tumblr and Instagram to those old faithfuls, Facebook and Twitter. We now share photos with the companies we are with and the places we go.
'If its not on Facebook then it didn't happen' has become our chosen mantra.
And these days, images aren’t just something you look at — they’re the centre of most of our online engagements, as people share, comment and engage with image creators.
The key to business marketing with images is to keep it in the moment. The other thing is to post graphical quirky things alongside the more serious stuff. Ones that are funny always catch the eye of consumers, they are visual stimuli and so, will increase engagement.
Remember too, the public are interested in the 'behind the scenes' parts of the business. They want to get snippets of what they wouldn't normally see. Pictures which depict a process are always high on the engagement scale as well.
Our 5 Top Tips to Image Success
Social media can be such a mind blowing task as it is, without being restricted by timing. Well, research has been done and it can be seen, from the picture, that these are the best times to maximise impact and reach the most amount of customers. These times have been based on the research of when consumers are most likely to log on.
The question is, will you bow down and follow the lead?

Twitter is the perfect solution for our time-poor lifestyles; tweets cut out the waffle and stick to the main message. Clearly, an effective twitter account is important - which means, many followers and lots of retweets. The following diagram provides some great steps towards achieving more retweets, which in turn means more followers.
