    We’ve heard just about every excuse there is explaining why business owners don’t practice content marketing.

When consumers see your posts on social media, they’re more interested in your content than they are in your writing ability. As long as your thoughts are clear and intelligible, your though leadership should take over. Nevertheless, content creation intimidates many…

    A month or so ago I was watching this video on YouTube with John Reese,  Frank Kern, and Tony Robbins were talking about their frustrations in that people who buy their training programs rarely take action.   The really interesting thing is when they talked about how the SAME people keep buying products  for thousands of dollars and then email them email them saying they don’t know how to get started. That video really got me thinking.  After all – I have sold over 25,000 units of my 2 training products  (over ten million dollars worth) focused on educating people on how to…

    A couple years ago my good friend,  Dan Martell, told me he was investing in a new site called Udemy.  A marketplace type site where you can upload your courses and sell them to people.  They handle customer support, refunds, merchanting and all of that. There seems to be a couple of these that come along every year and they all reach out to me (and im sure anyone who has training products online for sale) and I ignore them.

    During the onboarding process for new clients at Portent, the Social Team is frequently asked if there exists a more buttoned up approach to managing employee access to a company-owned Facebook page. Social media as its own business practice has become increasingly commonplace within organizations, and most teams are rightfully hesitant to provide administrative access to company pages through an employee’s personal Facebook account. The simplest solution in the past was using third-party social management tools – Hootsuite, Buffer, Cyfe, Sprinklr, to name a few –…

    When I heard that Portent was looking for a full-time social media intern, my first thought was, “What in the world could a social media intern do that could possibly take a whole days’ worth of work?”  To be completely honest, and I know this goes for pretty much every other recent college grad and/or parent when I say this, I thought all a social media position entailed was posting content about the company in a very low level, simple way.  My idea of someone who ran social media for a company was of a person posting material at home, in a bed, and taking a total of about 30 minutes…

It was simple, probably four or five pages, promoting the coaching business my former husband and I had just launched in Canada. We were way ahead of the curve with that site.

    As online travel agencies continue to use their large marketing budgets to dominate the Google real estate, hotels will need to use a more creative marketing strategy to better connect with guests and encourage more direct bookings. Relying on OTAs, like Expedia and Priceline, to sell your rooms will not maximize your inventory nor will it generate a greater ROI than encouraging direct bookings. An advantage of having a vanity site coupled with a multi-channel marketing strategy is that you, as the hotel, have the opportunity to build a relationship and brand loyalty with your guest.

    Why are these conversion rate optimization experts laughing? At first, the questions sounded pretty serious: “How often should you be emailing your customers?”  “What’s the best wording for a CTA (call to action)?”  “What should every conversion rate optimization team include?” Brian Massey and Joanna Wiebe of Copyhackers teamed up to answer questions like these in their off-kilter but on-track Ask Me Anything About CRO webinar. If you didn’t get to watch the original broadcast, then don’t worry. This was too much fun not to share…
  • Turn an Image into a Landing Page Power Up

    Brian Massey, The Conversion Scientist
    14 May 2015 | 10:20 am
    Oli Gardner will make you blush when he rips your landing page copy from its safe HTML home and shows you what it says as a plain text file. I got to thinking, what if we just pulled the images from your website? Would they be able to tell the story of your value proposition? The Role of Images on a Web Page Too many designers see images as a way to break up the copy on a web page. They use filler images, stock photos and silly graphs that have no meaning. Images are a powerful way to convey your value proposition – the reason that a visitor should consider your offer. This is true for…

    We’re all familiar with changing the oil on our car, right? It’s a necessary part of owning a car. Most of us wouldn’t dream of going for extended periods of time running on old, dirty oil, or with a filter that needed changing ages ago. So why isn’t the same true of your website? Granted, most websites don’t cost the same amount of money as a shiny new BMW, but if your website is the backbone of your business marketing (as most are), or a direct revenue producer, the cost of running it into the ground can end up massive. Yet, so many business owners don’t…

    I am used to seeing display ads all the time, well pretty much every time I do a search on Google, so have therefore become a bit immune to them. However I was browsing the web one day and a display ad caught my eye, it was one by travel brand Expedia. It was different from your standard display ad as it provided me with a fact before ending on its final call to action screen. It made me aware that ‘3000 euros are thrown in the Trevi fountain everyday’.

For the most popular people on Twitter, the number of messages received makes the system unusable.

    One of the basic truisms used in developing an inbound sales process is to “sell people how they wish to be sold, rather than the way you want to sell them.” This requires, for some, a dramatic shift in how they view the sales cycle and, even more fundamentally, how they communicate with people in general. The biggest skill most salespeople need to develop to truly excel in this type of selling is simply the ability to listen. Salespeople have a reputation for talking too much and trying to overpower buyers with glowing details about their solutions. This approach can be likened to…

What caused that traffic? Or didn’t our website go down last year for a few days? When was that? There are all sorts of situations that your Google Analytics account can’t account for. That’s where YOU come in. YOU are the person who best knows the story behind the data in your account. But holy crap, how are you supposed to keep all of that info in your head? I’m here to tell…

    22 Jul 2014 | 10:09 am
    Are you about to be the owner of a brand new website?? Woohoo! This is some seriously exciting shiz – I mean who doesn’t love a brand new look? Let me briefly interrupt this joyous occasion to ask… Have you given any thought to the impact your redesign might have on your search engine traffic? You know, that good ol’ SEO stuff you’ve been putting some consistent work into. Or maybe not so much consistent but you get a pretty decent amount of traffic from The Google. Did you know that your website redesign could potentially fudge all that up? Sad to say but it’s true. It…

  • How To Celebrate Holidays and Market Your Local Business

    Diana Wells
    19 May 2015 | 2:00 am
    If you go to a site like the National Day Calendar, you will see that there is a holiday for just about anything you can think of making a holiday for. While some of these are silly, the larger more well known holidays can be a great opportunity to get more customers through the doors of your business. While it would lose its effectiveness if you celebrated all of the silly or lesser known holidays, if there is one or two fun holidays that relate specifically to your business, then by all means latch on to it and create a celebration of your very own. Next week is a very important holiday.

    This post in 3rd in a series on content curation, which is where you read other content on the web and share it with your online audience, via your blog in most cases and sometimes social media channels. Once you have identified the topics that are relevant to your audience, as we explored in part 2 of the series, you need to search for good content about those topics. One of the best ways to do this is by using hashtags — those short subject titles that are attached to social media posts preceded by the # sign. Hashtags are used to categorize and group content according to theme,…
  • Content Curation Part 2: What Should I Curate?

    Bernadette Coleman
    14 Apr 2015 | 2:00 am
    Last week I began a series of posts on content curation, a type of content marketing where you select, organize and add value to content created by others. In doing that, you are playing a role similar to that of a newspaper editor or museum curator. You are plucking gems from the rushing river of content that appears online every day and presenting the best of it as a service to your clients. There are bonuses for you in content curation too. First, by monitoring content topics and choosing the best pieces, you automatically keep current with developments and new ideas in your field. Also,…

    22 May 2015 | 11:00 am
    Last week I shared a list of Google Analytics Resources for beginners and intermediate level users. Many people viewed these resources and shared on social media. Even the Google Analytics marketing team picked on the resources and shared. Thanks to all who spread the word! This week was another week of an intense teaching schedule that prevented me from writing a full blog post. Given the success of beginner and intermediate resources, I am providing some more “advanced” resources as well. Of course, advanced is a relative term, but these resources are helpful for those who…

    I am in the middle of a teaching bonanza. Since last week I have been working with 90 students on 3 unique programs, with 13 days teaching out of 14 available weekdays. Somehow I thought that in between I would be able to write a coherent blog post with my spare time in between. That doesn’t seem to be working very well. Instead, I am simply going to share resources that I have shared with my Google Analytics beginner and intermediate classes. These are additional resources that are based on the discussions we had during our 8 classroom hours learning the ins and outs of Google…
  • If the Samsung PPC Ad is Great, Then is This PPC Ad the Worst?

    Jeff Sauer
    6 May 2015 | 7:00 am
    By now, many of you have seen or heard about the brilliant PPC ad placed by Samsung. If not, here is a refresher. Search for iPhone 6s on Google, and you may see an ad like this: Screenshot found at Blueclaw Search  Note: I was not able to find this ad while searching today, so I can not confirm that this ad is still running. This ad is truly brilliant. It takes full advantage of all of the real estate Google provides advertisers. And it turns a brand search for Apple into an opportunity to showcase what makes a Samsung model better. While these ads usually only deflect a small percentage of…

    I planned to be silent about Google’s announced mobile algorithm update for several reasons: First, I’m not a news source, so I leave revealing of news to those better equipped to break stories (Search Engine Land being one of my favorites). Second, I didn’t see what the big deal was. Google is prioritizing mobile friendly websites in mobile search results. About friggin’ time! Personally, my mobile search history is approximately 95% looking up names of movie characters. Whatever gets me closer to the answer of “who was that guy in that movie” is aces in my book.

    21 May 2015 | 4:48 am
    I don’t know if whomever came up with the expression, “the customer is always right”, is more deserving of our scorn or pity. This misguided soul must have had a challenging time running their business, catering to every client's wish and whim. If you've ever lost sleep over a client service issue, you'll know exactly what I mean. Here are a couple of reasons why I feel the customer might not always be right, and why its important for us all to be honest about it. 1.

  • Is User Generated Content a Shot at Fame, Fortune, and Marketing Glory?

    13 May 2015 | 5:00 am
    Hardly a week goes by when I don't come across some kind of request from a company or organization asking for speculative work submissions (also known as "spec" creative, co-creation, or user-generated content). While these are often portrayed as a shot at fame, fortune, and glory, the reality is they are largely a waste of time for participants and organizers alike, with barely some form of short term awareness generation for the brand while exploiting the participants.

  • Keeping Your Business Afloat in a Downturn the KAYAK Inbound Way

    7 May 2015 | 5:00 am
    If there’s one thing business owners universally fear, it’s an economic downturn. Although there are a few industries that benefit, or at least remain stable during a rough patch, even those tend to face increased pressure and competition in slower times. But, an economic downturn doesn’t have to mean big trouble for your company. The easiest way to attract new customers when times are tight – not to mention keep the ones you already have – is to look at the way you attract customers in the first place. In my view, the best way to grow your business during a downturn (any time…

After all, having lots of fresh, interesting content is the cornerstone of a healthy online marketing plan and your online strategy. And yet, it’s entirely possible that content aggregators can snag what you’ve created and use it in a way that actually hurts you.

And, anytime you wrote something brilliant or insightful, there would be multitudes of readers ready to jump in, comment, and add their own thoughts. In the real world, though, people are busy… no matter how great your idea is. Holidays, heavy work days, and even personal distractions can divert their attention in an instant.

    We occasionally get asked by our clients, “Is Bing relevant?” What they’re really asking is, “Should I be using Bing for my business?” The answer to the first question is, yes. The answer to the latter is, it depends. The reality is it’s rare to hear someone say, “I Binged it,” or “You should Bing that topic.” Whereas “Googling” has become a ubiquitous part of our lexicon. Everyone does it and knows what it means. That, in addition to the resources and unique algorithmic formulas that they’ve applies to their search engine, has allowed Google to secure over 60…

    This article was originally published on SteamFeed. Few companies face as much backlash as Facebook whenever there’s a slight shift in the wind for marketers. Last year, the social network came under fire for the declining organic reach of brands’ posts, and Copyblogger went so far as to say goodbye to Facebook for good. It’s clear that the heyday is over for businesses looking to promote their offerings on Facebook for free, but that doesn’t mean the social giant isn’t still a highly effective channel for customer acquisition.

    At least once a week, a client complains that they’re all out of content ideas. I created a quick mind map of easy types of content for them. The map usually sparks lots of fresh ideas, and inspiration. They realize that they have content which can be repurposed. You have more content than you think you do Often, all unknowing, a client has a mass of content that’s able to be repurposed. Product manuals, for example. Yes, I know that sounds dry and horrid, but if you’ve ever searched online for a product manual for a stove or a washer, you know that generally all you’ll find is a…

    I worked as a diving instructor in the Maldives for a few seasons, and I had the privilege of living there for a couple of years. Maldives is a phenomenal place for diving: the water is warm, the sea is flat, and the marine life is stunning. The Maldives is one of those places where diving is “comfortable.” I mean, it may be challenging underwater because of strong currents and the dive site formations, but overall, it’s convenient, warm, and easy to dive. Guides take excellent care of your equipment (from washing it to filling your tank on the boat), and you’ll be touring on old…

So, I decided to travel with a couple of friends and spend Easter weekend in Ljubljana, the nation’s capital that sits in the country’s center. Situated just an hour’s flight from Zurich, it seemed like a great compromise between traveling abroad and a short plane ride.

When to go You can enjoy Galapagos’ weather year-round, but when you go will strongly affect what you’ll see, especially underwater. If you want to dive with whale sharks, you should plan your trip for the cold but dry season, spanning June to November. The water…

    Godot
    28 Apr 2015 | 3:25 am
    To gate or not to gate? This has been a much debated marketing question, subject to oscillating public and professional opinions over the last decade. Most businesses might have already given in to the practice of putting high-value content behind opt-in forms that require users to provide some information about themselves. Still, there is no denying the fact that making your content freely accessible to the users results in a greater number of downloads and better brand recognition. One of the main reasons why the debate on gated content remains unresolved is because it’s tough to…

    2 Apr 2015 | 4:15 am
    Keywords are an important aspect of your SEO campaign. The problem, however, is that you are spoiled for choices. So, it is not inconceivable that you can make mistakes while choosing keywords. What’s worse is that you may not even be aware that you are erring. Below are five common mistakes that should be avoided while choosing keywords: Not understanding how people search: While you may know what your customers need, your customers may only have a very vague idea.

    In the year 2004, McDonald’s employed a new marketing strategy that Larry Light, its chief marketing officer, called “brand journalism”. But, what is brand journalism and its relation to marketing?According to Light, it was not possible for brands to communicate what they represented to their customers through means of just a single ad. It was also not possible to approach marketing with a one size fits all strategy. What was needed was the segmentation of their customer base to appeal to each group separately. In other words, provide each potential customer with what they want,…

    In recent years, Google began reducing the amount of keyword data that it made available through its Analytics platform. This came in the form of the dreaded ‘not provided’, which gradually consumed keyword data, leaving us with a fraction of what we once had. However, thanks to the ‘Search Query’ Report in Google Webmaster Tools, website managers were able to extract useful data relating to their top keywords and pages based on the number of clicks and impressions received. This could be filtered over a specified time-frame within the previous 3 months, with other information…

    Andrew Percey
    27 Apr 2015 | 11:50 pm
    A “landing page” is the first page that a new visitor to your website experiences. A “Google AdWords landing page” is the first page that you send new visitors to when they click on your Google PPC ad. You need a visitor’s first experience with your business to be fantastic. You want an ideal prospect to immediately understand why your business offer is perfect for him. You want him to easily see how he can take the next step.   Example landing page from Unbounce.com   That’s challenging enough to accomplish in a landing page.  The folks over at…

This year, together with my podcast partner Kenny Goodman, we crafted a very special all-new seminar to address the burning marketing questions that we hear over and over again from new company founders.

    I don’t make New Year’s resolutions.  No, I’m not a humbug — I just don’t think that successful goals are built upon an arbitrary calendar date.     But I do set goals. Lots of ‘em. 5-year goals, yearly goals, monthly goals… which then break down into weekly and daily tasks. This goal process is based on a truly spectacular book that I gush about regularly: “The One Thing” by Gary Keller. And so I thought I had this whole goal thing figured out… until I read an article this month by James Clear over at Entrepreneur…

    Andrew Percey
    4 Dec 2014 | 7:31 am
    It’s a safe bet that you’ve requested a whole bunch of lead magnets recently, even if you didn’t know it. What’s a “lead magnet,” you say? A lead magnet is a valuable piece of content that a business offers in exchange for your email address. It’s that simple.     A lead magnet could be a special report (like my current lead magnet), a white paper, a tool kit, a cheat sheet, a presentation, a video, a podcast, a coupon, or anything else that your ideal prospects would perceive as valuable. And that’s the key, because the purpose…

Whether your site has been around since the dawn of the internet or you just launched last week, it’s never too late or too early to review your work. A thorough UX review will help you see your site the way your customers do. Even if you’ve only just launched, the way your navigation and messaging are perceived might surprise you. That’s where user experience optimization – also known as UXO -- comes into play. This is a process that involves developing, designing, planning and evolving the user…

    13 Apr 2015 | 9:44 am
    Corporate storytelling is one of the standout methods that major companies use in order to promote their business further and engage their audience. The main purpose of corporate storytelling is to generate conversions via storytelling while enticing people to check out their products and services. This is about winning the acceptance of a service, product or concept that’s new on the market, making people convert at a premium pricing and improving the revenue margin. When people read a story, they are much more inclined to convert. This is why corporate storytelling is such a success.

    Kathryn Brewer

    Video is one of the most talked-about marketing platforms in recent memory, and with good reason. Adding video to your marketing mix is a highly effective method of increasing audience reach as well as boosting the overall impact of your branded messages. What’s more, video provides more opportunities for improving your page rankings in the search engine results. In short – if you’re running marketing campaigns without video, you’re clearly short-changing your business, and handing the high ground to your competitors who are already using video.

According to Google, the majority of search engine queries are now being conducted on a mobile device – specifically a smartphone – rather than on a desktop computer in 10 countries including the United States and Japan. Mobile search queries include browser-based searches as well as searches originating from Google’s mobile search apps.

    The debate over inbound versus outbound marketing is a tough call to referee. While outbound marketing has taken its fair share of hits in recent years, it remains a viable marketing option under certain circumstances. What Exactly is Outbound Marketing? Outbound marketing is frequently referred to as interruption or intrusion marketing. An advertising message gets blasted out to prospects who happen to loosely fit the demographic profile of the marketer’s target audience. In this sense, outbound marketing interrupts their lives in the frequently vain hope that at least some members of the…

Properly done, it’s a challenging and fulfilling profession that benefits all parties involved. But as there usually is, there’s another less altruistic side to this coin.

In order to determine the reputation of potential healthcare providers, patients look at online reviews to ensure their doctor is not only the best qualified but also provides an excellent bed-side manner.

In the realm of B2C marketing, your tangential understanding of human-to-human marketing perhaps related it to bringing a better sense of customer service. For B2B marketing, maybe you equated the concept to increasing more personal contact with businesses. While human-to-human marketing does incorporate some of those aspects, it goes far beyond basic concepts. With those who work in marketing finally understanding that connections with…

However, there is a way to keep the new ideas rolling, create awesome content, and then to make that content convert better than ever: Better Audience Targeting. Specific, narrow targeting has many benefits. The most obvious is that it speaks more directly to your audience, increasing the chance of conversion.

    Finding ways to repurpose content is one of the most important aspects of content marketing. You can get more value out of your blogs and articles if you learn how to repurpose them.

    We’ve heard just about every excuse there is explaining why business owners don’t practice content marketing. The worst of them all is when they say they won’t create content because they can’t write well. Thought leadership plays a bigger role in content marketing than your writing skills.

Are so-called growth hacking professionals really just jargon addicts with a background in startup marketing? To be clear, none of these rumors are true, though there could be some truth to all of them. The most succinct definition comes from Sean Ellis, who states "A growth hacker is a person whose true north is growth." The term was coined by Ellis in 2010.

    admin
    22 Apr 2015 | 5:48 am
    Net neutrality is also known as the network neutrality, net equality and Internet neutrality. Net Neutrality is an Internet which enables and protects free communication.

    In this post you are going to learn how to build a loyal  and perhaps even hungry audience for your blog. This is a Guest Post from Jason Quey. I enjoy writing. There’s just something special about putting pen-to-paper that has kept me blogging through thick and thin. But writing quality articles for your blog can be time-consuming. And at times frustrating. When I first started, I would spend 10 hours trying to write amazing content to share and grab someone’s attention. Try as I might, I’d get a measly 125 visitors. Even at $20 an hour, that means the article cost me $200…

    Choosing the domain name is an important step in the early stages of any type of website or blog, but it can be a big challenge with so many domains already registered.

    You hear a lot about traffic, but not as much about leads. But the truth is, leads are what people are really after – we just don’t express it that way. There’s an assumption that traffic will just naturally convert to leads, but that isn’t always the case. And what if you don’t have traffic, but want to generate leads for your business today? In that case, you have to pursue other avenues.

  • On-Going Traffic from Pinterest

    Marc Andre
    20 Apr 2015 | 5:12 am
    Back in January I published a post about how I was able to more than double my traffic from Pinterest in just 30 days. A few months have gone by since that time and I wanted to follow up to show the results over a longer period of time. One of the reasons I love Pinterest is because, unlike most other social networks, it has the potential to be a consistent source of traffic. Facebook can lead to huge traffic if you get a link shared on a popular fan page, or if your content is shared/liked by loads of users, but that traffic is always short-lived. The life of a post that gets a lot of pins…

    It’s no secret that email subscribers are key to growing a successful online business. With that in mind, building a list of subscribers should be a priority regardless of whether you are running a blog, e-commerce site, membership site, or any other type of website. Being able to stay in touch with the people who are most interested in what you have to offer will help you in countless ways.

    The Times has reported that Google may face legal action over its decision to reject some Right to be Forgotten requests. What questions does this raise over Google’s application of the ruling one year after it was made? The right to be forgotten ruling The Right to be Forgotten on search engines such as Google was established in May 2014 by the European Court of Justice. The Court ruled that search engines are responsible for the content they direct users to. This means that Google must remove links to inaccurate, inadequate, irrelevant or excessive information about a user if they ask the…

    The web is accessible to most, the technical barriers and costs of having an online social presence are low. Yet many companies aren’t taking advantage of this growing channel and the opportunities it can bring. Unfortunately, all too often I see individuals and clients who have waited until their brand suffers a negative hit before making changes. It’s proven that having a poor brand or company reputation can negatively affect sales, damaging a company’s profits and consumer base. And it’s far easier to build a positive brand presence, than it is to repair a damaged brand from a…

    And yes, sometimes they do. You may say that’s great; we have a good brand, high levels of customer service and we want the world to know. Unfortunately, search engines don’t currently distinguish the truth from hearsay which means untruthful, negative content can rank more highly in search engine results than accurate content. To understand how this can happen, we need to understand the algorithm that Google is currently using to determine the order of search results. Search engines assume that the more popular a site, page or document, the more valuable the information it contains must…

    Ever wonder why someone can write 8 blog posts per week when you can’t even finish one blog post per fortnight? Well… me too. For most of us, our passion for content writing is comparable to fireworks — it burns brightly and fiercely in the initial stage of passion, and quickly fizzles out within seconds, or in our case, days. And part of the reason is due to the lack of content to write. Or so we think. Most of us just aren’t too sure what content we can write. So I decided to look at the different type of articles on the web and realised there are about 6 general types of blog posts…

I can build really neat websites, damn it! But that’s backwards. What we really ought to be doing is seeking to help people. In that quest to help people, you will find an audience.

    We know that Google now wants our site to be on HTTPS. Not only does it help your rankings, Google will also be showing a warning of some kind in Chrome 42 for non-secure sites.

Be it to register for a website’s newsletters, to apply for a service, to give feedback for a product or simply to create an account, we often come face to face with online form filling. However, forms in their essence are not very interesting. Creating fields for a form or filling vertically stacked requirements for details are supremely boring tasks.

    If you have been blogging for a while, you might hear how important it is to build an email list. And that’s true, but what they often don’t say is that your list is worthless if you don’t frequently follow up with them. It’s like getting a girls number, but not calling her out for a date.

You are writing for those people who are most likely to appreciate your writing and the style you have developed. Write like you would talk in a personal conversation with a friend. I still remember my dutch teacher talking in her robotic monotone voice. She was a very effective hypnotist, and put me and the rest off the class to sleep. My point?

We were talking about geeky SEO stuff, when someone tossed out the word “CRO.” “What’s CRO?” one SEO asked. There is a dearth of knowledge among SEOs regarding CRO. I totally get this. There are too many acronyms, too many specialties, and way too much marketing jargon. For a long time, I too existed as a SEO without knowing what CRO was. I was content not to know that I didn’t know what I didn’t know about CRO. In fact, when I first heard of conversion rate optimization, my first response…

    April was a pretty surprising month for us. After barely hitting our Q1 goal with an exceptionally good March, I was worried we’d see a dip in April as we worked on closing out the deals from the previous month. In an exciting turn of events, we ended up closing $385,432.60 worth of website sales in April – putting us well on our way towards our $900K goal for Q2. With another great month in a row, this continues to highlight our biggest challenge – inventory. We have to keep up on sourcing and attracting new and repeat sellers if we want continued growth.

  • How A Russian Syndicate Scammed Us For $25K

    Justin Cooke
    1 May 2015 | 6:34 am
    “Buddy… we’ve been scammed.” Words you do NOT want to hear from your business partner ten minutes before your weekly team meeting. It’s hard to describe how getting scammed feels, but if you’re reading this and it’s happened to you, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. It’s one part feeling like you were punched in the gut, another part rage at the person that scammed you, with a dash of embarrassment at putting yourself in the position in the first place. I immediately had questions: How did this happen? How bad is the damage?

    It’s no secret that I love to pore through the street photography tag in the WordPress.com Reader and share images that catch my attention.

    Bing will follow in Google footsteps and unveil its own mobile-friendly ranking algorithm in the upcoming months. Unlike Google, it will not set a date for when the algorithm will set in and is taking a slower approach to it in order to better communicate the changes and reduce potential whiplash from webmasters. Despite the announcement about the importance of having a mobile friendly site, Bing is still focused on relevancy to user queries.  Sites that are relevant but not mobile friendly will most likely still rank.

    Learning how to build links is an essential part of being an SEO specialist. The number of referrals to a site is based on the SEO-jargon: link popularity. Google uses the number of quality links to measure the quality of a website or webpage. Webmasters are permitted to create as many links as possible in order to generate traffic.

Ideally, a marketer wants their message to be ingrained in the customer, that a particular product comes to mind as the solution to their problem or situation. People with runny noses reach for a Kleenex instead of a tissue, hurt kids look for Band-aids instead of adhesive medical strips, and no one runs into the convenience store for a can of canned tire sealant instead just saying a can of Fix-a-Flat. A recent study suggests that Pinterest is a good platform for influencing the future buying behavior of consumers. Pinterest…

Personally I prefer to create something of value (this article…) throw it out there and wait for the persons who can see the value to make the connection.Optimistic? Yes, very! Effective? Yes, somewhat. Annoying? NO!And that last part is the important part. You catch more flies (and you my reader is not a fly) with honey than with vinegar.

    Data in itself is nothing but cost. Unless you do something to extract value out of it and make it worth something, data is nothing but an expense. Because unadulterated data is nothing but cost, then it seems accurate to say that “data”, actually is a problem. Which means “big data” is a “big problem”. The fact that there is so much data is not an opportunity, it is an obstacle. Only once you add the “science” to it, it becomes an opportunity. Broadly speaking, Data Science is the opportunity associated with data. It has to be better understood, that it is not in data we…
