It feels like yesterday that we heard the news about Instagram reaching a higher amount of members than Twitter. When others asked us why we weren’t surprised this had happened, we responded that we discovered our love for Instagam a long time ago. It’s fun, fast, visual and interactive. What’s not to love?
To top off our Pinterest in Belgium series, we wanted to obtain some insights from a popular Belgian Pinterest user or Pinfluencer. We did a short interview with 22-year old Belgian student, model, fashion pinner and blogger Paulien Riemis. Although Paulien doesn’t run any business, her experience with Pinterest can teach us valuable lessons. At the time of writing, Paulien has pinned over 33.000 images and acquired over 20.000 followers.
We are constantly bombarded with tips on how to create engaging content for brands on Facebook. And everywhere we look we read advice on how big brands can succeed in gaining more loyal fans. Without a doubt some of these formulas work well, but have you ever noticed how most examples always use love brands, global brands or sexy brands? I, for one, have never read a case about a local cleaning service’s Facebook content strategy… I’m not saying that Coca Cola’s content manager’s life is easy, but all these articles on killer content recipes made me wonder: how are Belgian brands doing?

Hi, my name is Marie-Odile, I am currently doing a Master in Public Relations at the University of Louvain-la-Neuve. During my last year of studies, I wanted to experience the day-to-day activities in a digitalconsultancy agency and ended up at Cleverwood. It’s been two months since I joined the team for my internship and my days at the office were full of good times, a lot of learning and a touch of cheerfulness.
