Quora Ads vs Reddit Ads-
You didn’t even know Quora & Reddit offered ads? So now that you do, you’re asking which is better. Depends on your needs. Just like any other platform. Pros & Cons detailed.

“If you want to target niche communities, then Reddit and Quora are definitely two channels to focus your online advertising efforts on. As of right now, the competition is lower compared to other platforms, so it’s worth testing it out.” – George Carey-Simos, writing for WERSM

Using Topic Clusters to Drive SEO Performance-
Sorry SMM, keywords are no longer the golden geese of getting high Google rankings. Topic clusters are the way to go as consumer search is evolving. More local search is reason for change too.

“Topic clusters are a relatively new way to think about how to write and organize content. From now on, no blog post, article, or other digital content should exist only to include the odd long-tail keyword phrase. When you write, you must think about where your content fits into the bigger picture – a picture that a topic cluster content model builds for you.” – Eric Goldstein, writing on Jeff Bullas .com

Snapchat Launches Instant Create Ads-
Advertisers with limited resources now have a way to quickly reach the highly engaged Snapchat audience. Instant Create ads involve a simplified 3 step process.

“Part of the problem in getting advertisers over to Snap has been the pressure of creating high-quality Snap ads, with Snapchat users, traditionally, not being highly welcoming of ads within their streams. Instant Create aims to address this by not only simplifying the targeting process, but also by providing templates based on the top Snap ad formats.” – Andrew Hutchinson, writing for Social Media Today
