It's effective, it's free (well, most of the time) and it's full of potential...but it's also overwhelming and can be a minefield if not carefully planned! Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Google+, LinkedIn... Social media marketing is a great way to reach out to customers, hear what they have to say and what they think. Learn about the different networks, how to implement strategies that work and when to post those important messages you want your audience to read. 

Photography is something we love. We're still learning with every shot and we enjoy the challenges the come with it. The moments and memories captured as we travel through Africa is an important part of our journey. We use Nikon as our weapon of choice (not for any particular reason) and a favourite subject is Africa's wildlife. We feature some of our own images as well as those of friends and collegues.

Every now and then we hit the road to explore some of Africa's incredible destinations. We tend to rough it as we enjoy the more remoter parts of the continent, but a few nights of pampering in a luxury lodge somewhere in an exclusive wilderness area does make the journeys so much more enjoyable... Some trips are planned well in advance, others are spur-of-the-moment weekends getaways where we pack the Land Cruiser and just go!

It's never been easier to make use of video to promote your business to the world. Video is the most consumed content on the internet.

Think GoPro, selfie stick and smartphone! Come up with a campaign that will grab the attention of your audience, and make them want to share it with their friends!
