    23 Jul 2015 | 6:04 am
    Whether your business is big or small, brand reputation is hugely important. You need to be constantly thinking about how you want to be known and remembered by your leads, customers, and website visitors. Most business owners would probably say that they want their company to be well-thought of, but don’t necessarily have a plan to execute on. So here’s a workable plan, also known as – what I like to call – the eight be’s (you’ll find out why in a second). Here’s how you can build your online business with brand reputation in mind.

    Most entrepreneurs with any experience will tell you that finding a business partner isn’t easy. So, when you’re a “nobody”, that can present some additional challenges. You’re probably not going to be able to partner up with someone more known than you are. At the very least, it’s not going to prove easy. But working alone is hard, and having a partner can add a lot of perspective to your business. You can share in your tasks, keep each other motivated, leverage your connections, and pool your ideas together. That’s a good thing, because sometimes…

    Does the marketing world really need another content marketing tool? This was a hotly debated issue at the recent Social Media Strategies Conference in Chicago. Pam Didner, formerly responsible for worldwide social media and content marketing at Intel, had a strong viewpoint on this issue. “For many marketers, especially those newly responsible for content strategy and execution, the lure of one-stop shopping for a technical platform and software solution are very difficult to resist.” Pam went on to say that the most asked question she faces is, “which solution do you recommend?” But…

  • 10 Tips for a Successful Post-Mortem

    Kyle Eliason
    16 Jul 2015 | 9:23 am
    I love meetings. Actually, let me clarify. I like creative, strategy-focused meetings like a brainstorm or its emo cousin, the Post-Mortem. What is a post-mortem? To some, it’s an examination of a corpse in order to determine the correct cause of death. To other more well-adjusted individuals (no offense Dana Scully), it’s a discussion (usually at the end of the project) to identify and analyze elements of a project that were successful or unsuccessful. It answers the question, “How’d we do?” Many people find the name “post-mortem” too macabre. They’d rather call it a…

That’s a very necessary balance. If all you have are risk-takers you’ll probably run aground in a hurry. If everyone on your team is risk-averse, you probably won’t make any progress. As Internet marketers, we’re usually called upon to be the risk takers. We charge in with all sorts of ideas for change. We assume everyone will fall all over themselves to implement those ideas.

    Over a recent weekend, I spoke with a friend who had spent the past couple of months coaching a little league team of 8-year-old boys. The kids had a good season, he said, emphasizing that “good” didn’t necessarily mean “winning.” Sure, they won their share of games, he said. But they lost a couple of heartbreakers, too. Still, he said, all of the kids had a good season. Some really improved their skills. Others picked up some confidence in their abilities. And at the end-of-the-season party, the kids talked about great catches and good hits instead of victories or losses. For these…

Consider the recently-published “Craigslist killings,” a list of 84 people whose lives were cut short over the last 8 years through encounters with people they met via the online classifieds site. Some were involved in encounters that were already risky enough,…

    Nearly 20 years after the Internet became a thorn in the side of newspapers, the old-school print industry continues to take steps to soften the blow that the Web has had on its business model. The problem is that newspapers, as part of their effort to become one with the digital side of news, keep making the same mistake. They keep chopping the journalism side of the business, the side that creates the original content that keeps visitors – and the eyeballs for their ads – clicking on their sites. This time around, it’s the mighty New York Times that’s slashing newsroom jobs…

When I started blogging in 2004, there were no social networks to contend with.

    One of the most awesome rides I have taken to date was to The Dragon’s Tail up on the border of Tennessee and North Carolina.  Driving there from Cumming Georgia up Rt. 129 was awesome.  I met my friend Steve Whittle up off Exit 17 on Ga 400 at 7am on Tuesday, May 27th and we headed out.  It was about a 3 hour ride up with a stop for Gas along the way. The ride to get there was magnificent.  We rode through mountains, past streams and in and out of valley’s.  Below are some pictures from some of the awesome photography companies like KillBoy.

    Managing marketing is a big issue, but managing your life is much more important. I have talked a lot about  marketing management. But, today I want to write about managing your life. The analogy in management is that you have to measure it, and by measuring your life you have to define the correct KPIs (Key Performance indicators). “the wealthy, will be happy… … but, first you need to define and understand the diverse sources of capital & wealth” As Peter Drucker accurately stated; “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it”.

The answer formed his now celebrated ten principles. 10 Principles of Good Design: 1) Is innovative – The possibilities for innovation are not, by any means, exhausted. Technological development is always offering new opportunities for innovative design. But innovative design always develops in tandem with innovative technology, and can never be an end in itself. 2) Makes a product useful – A…

The Millennials, also known as Generation Y have the largest generation population and will take up most of the work force in the next 5 years.

  • Using Social Media to Compete With OTA’s

    Nigel J. Rodgers
    10 Jul 2015 | 9:00 am
    It is well known that OTA’s and hotels are in a long standing battle for customer bookings. Whenever an OTA books a room for a hotel, that hotel must pay the OTA. This can be pricey since about 58% of people booked hotels through an OTA in 2014 according to one study. This can be frustrating for hoteliers. When rooms are searched for, an online travel agency like Expedia or Orbitz is most likely to rank the highest on a search results page. In order to compete and get people to their sites, hoteliers must raise their ranking. In May I wrote an article about how hoteliers can use their…

Except when they don’t. So this daring infographic, conspiring with the numbers to perpetuate some of our favorite stereotypes definitely caught our eye. We were interigued because you could replace the word “Men” with “Relational Shopppers” and the word “Women” with “Transactional Shoppers” and this infographic would still make sense.

Now, let’s go in-depth on the first step — Identify the Action You Seek. While this step is obviously about goal setting, I avoid that term in favor of using language that focuses on action. Otherwise, it’s too easy to conceive goals in a vague, often immeasurable way.

    It’s time to review your content marketing activities and assess how, or whether, they have delivered the results you expected. Even though many businesses have a regularly updated Facebook page and Twitter account, most don’t know how to measure the return on their content marketing investments. What’s a “like” worth? How about a “retweet” or a comment on the company blog? The truth is that you can’t make much headway in evaluating content marketing unless you first have a clear content marketing plan.

    In 2006, a web analyst at Intuit wrote a blog post that really resonated with me. At the time I was just getting my feet wet in the world of Web Analytics, with the release of Google Analytics the year before finally making analysis affordable. Here I had this free tool, Google Analytics, and barely enough knowledge to be dangerous. So I started reading every source I could find on the topic, filling my RSS reader (yes, that was a thing then) with every blog I could find. But the most useful posts were from this guy at Intuit.

    It’s not you, it’s me…. A public statement from both parties tell only one story: YouTube will no longer require a Google+ profile when you want to upload a video, write a comment, or create a channel.

    Often, the hardest part of launching a new website or getting a marketing plan off the ground involves getting content from different members of the team or organization. Having multiple perspectives and ideas is helpful, but it can also turn something that seems simple into a herding exercise. There’s a good reason getting content from your team is never easy. Unlike those of us in the marketing world, your employees or coworkers have responsibilities, deadlines, and tasks that have to be finished – their jobs aren’t 100% marketing “fun” the way ours are.

    There is an interesting dichotomy floating around on the Internet. On the one hand, the web (and social media specifically) is supposed to be fostering creativity and individual expression. On the other hand, the partisan and anonymous nature of the Internet is fuelling a stronger and stronger herd mentality. A distance that causes people to act as they were wearing a mask. The result is that more and more people are acting different than they would in real life.

As company decisions increasingly become data- and customer-driven, it’s tempting to go into feedback overdrive and attempt to collect as much data as you can get your hands on. But asking for too much feedback can actually have harmful effects, such as a decline in response rates or lower-quality feedback. Ironically, you could end up having less data with diluted value.

Sadly if you’re relying on tags and keywords to make your ebooks discoverable, you’ll hit a snag. Some authors on Amazon cram their titles with a dozen keywords, so your book is pushed back ten or 30 pages deep in the search results. Authors have complained about keyword-cramming for years. Sooner or later Amazon will conduct a purge. In the meantime, do some easy promotions yourself. It’s not difficult, and it needn’t take much time. The process I…

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.

    7 Apr 2015 | 11:51 am
    Slovenia, which shares similarities to Austria and Südtirol in terms of its good food and architecture, is a good bet for a long weekend break. 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. We stayed in Ljubljana for 3 days, which allowed plenty of time to explore the area. The city center is approximately 1 square kilometer and where you should spend most of your…

Depending on what kind of conversion you are hoping to achieve, creating a conversion funnel can help optimize your social media marketing efforts.

It is expected that in the year 2020, more than 40 zettabytes of digital information will be produced globally – that’s 5200GB of data for each person on the planet.

    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…
  • 5 Mistakes to Avoid in Keyword Research

    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. Using head terms (keywords that are only one or two words long) made up of industry jargon will not give you the best…

    Sam Gooch

    Link building techniques have been used and abused since the very beginning of search engines, and while Google has been in a constant battle to prevent websites from manipulating its search results through acquiring unnatural links, a lot of ground has been covered in recent years, particularly with the release of its spam fighting algorithmic update, codenamed ‘Penguin’. This makes it even more important to stay up-to-date with the latest link building techniques, especially as many of the overused methods that previously sat in a bit of grey area have since moved over to the dark…
  • 14 Days to Discover WooRank

    In the beginning, WooRank was a tiny, automated website review tool. We did two things – let you review a site, and let you download the review as a PDF to send to a client or boss. That’s why, when we switched to a freemium subscription model, a 7-day trial made sense; you could easily explore the tool completely and know whether it was useful to your business in 7 days. Since then, however, we’ve grown. And I don’t mean there’s just a little bit more to love – I mean WooRank went through a full-on three year growth spurt, which resulted in a tool that’s more useful…

    In life and in digital marketing, little things count. From the position of your brand logo, to your choice of website color scheme – there are a wide range of factors that come together to affect an online visitor’s perception and overall experience.

If most of your online visitors find a particular aspect irksome or troubling, you could risk losing a huge chunk of your market over time, so it’s important to make your website easy to…

  • A Detailed Guide on Link Evaluation to Improve Link Profile

    Shane Barker
    27 Jul 2015 | 3:10 am
    When Google was launched in 1998, a “link” was one of the chief factors among all other SEO off-page factors. Later on, many new ranking signals were added to improve search quality. Google also launched many spam fighting updates like Penguin, Panda, Hummingbird, and Pirate. So, what’s most important in SEO today? Moz has collectively compiled data on search ranking factors based on survey and correlation. If you study each factor and correlation, then you can deduce that “Link Profile” is now more important in SEO. A link profile indicates how well a website is connected…

    Danielle Kogan
    28 Jul 2015 | 9:43 am
    Growth hacking is a relatively new term, coined in 2010 by Sean Ellis, an expert in startup marketing and growth. It’s often thrown around as a marketing term, but it’s not exactly marketing. It’s a new business philosophy. Whereas marketing is more about creating profit, growth is about organic, sustainable change. You’re aware by now that content marketing is a mainstay of the current consumer model. What you may not realize is that content creation is necessary for the concept of growth hacking to even exist.

    Jeff Brewer

    Mobile first refers to the business approach that assumes employees are primarily using mobile technology such as smartphones and tablets to be more productive. On the other hand, a mobile only approach to business assumes mobile devices are the only tools being used for most applications. Mobile devices are often referred to as the “second screen”, meaning they are usually people’s first choice over a desktop or laptop. However, statistics have shown that 60% of users access digital content through mobile platforms. In terms of your marketing approach, this means there may be…

    A Twitter influencer list is a marketing strategy that’s used successfully in advertisement and endorsement campaigns.

Think of a product brand name that you started buying because it was associated a hero, celebrity or athlete, or a goal that seems to be so far out of reach, yet one person you admire against all odds…

    You are using pay per click advertising effectively, or so you think. You know this much… that users do go to your page, but then they leave. Sometimes they go to another page on your website, sometimes they click on the link to check your facebook page and sometimes they go to a competitor’s page and never come back. What they do not do is fill out a form, call your business or buy your product online.

    You have a budget of $200.00 per day to spend on Google AdWords, yet you’ve only been able to spend $20.00 for the entire week. You wonder if your ads are even showing. A quick look at the AdWords dashboard confirms that the ads are in fact showing, but now you are even more frustrated. It cost $20.00 for one single lousy click. The low click-through rates on the ads have driven down the quality score of the keywords to the point where you must pay a prohibitively high price for every single click.

As a local business you know that can’t compete with the national competition on price because they leverage their economy of scale. They use their volume-based economies of scale to make offers with razor-thin margins, offers which any local business is unable to match. You feel frustrated and see no way out.

It is clear that you are not connecting with them – however, instead of ending the bad blind date with an awkward hug outside the restaurant, your poor customer interaction ends with you going out of business. This is a real problem. Users come to your landing page from your PPC ad, and you can almost feel the air as your marketing message swings and misses.

    What a year for crisis communications, with the latest coming from Ashley Madison. The online dating service that helps people cheat on their spouses, boasting the tagline “Life is Short, Have An Affair”, has built their reputation on being a discreet service with a focus on protecting users’ identities. Hackers breached the site and have begun to expose the identities of the members. Does this mean the brand is marred beyond repair? It’s an interesting study in crisis communications management. The consequences of a crisis come in many forms: financial impact, legal filings,…

    Warm sugar cookies. Microwaved fish. Fresh roses. Can you imagine each scent? In our tech-focused culture, we are familiar with visual ads of all kinds. Banners flash, pre-roll videos play, pop-ups pop up, and we learn to focus our vision on solely the information we’re seeking. Brands looking to separate themselves from the pack must focus on delivering the whole package. It’s not what the brand looks like; what does it feel like? A key element to crafting an experience is scent. You may remember an Old Spice commercial stating, “Scent is the strongest sense tied to memory,” and…

    23 Jul 2015 | 7:39 am
    Earlier this year, Forbes released its annual list of the world’s most reputable companies. The list saw BMW, Google and Daimler named as having the strongest and best reputations in the world. To qualify for the list, companies must be achieving revenues of at least $6 billion in the US or $1 billion globally and obviously, be very well known. The 20 companies selected were then included in a three-month long survey to 61,000 consumers in 15 countries. Consumers were asked to rate how much they trusted each company and how they felt about each company relating to four main areas of esteem,…

    The 2008 economic crisis destroyed public faith in the UK banking sector. I’m going to talk about how firms can build and restore the reputation of the UK’s finance industry. Reputational damage of the economic crisis The economic crisis inflicted serious damage on the reputation of the UK finance industry. A YouGov article which quotes the words of “one of the most senior global players” in the sector explains why. They said that “banks lost control of their businesses and had to go cap in hand to ordinary folk to continue to run them.” They also commented that “banks are…

    Reddit has moved the goalposts when it comes to managing their site. The so-called ‘front page of the internet’ has changed its mentality towards removing comments on its online forums, which prompted me to consider impacts this may have. Five posters, known on the forum as subreddits, had their comments removed – the first time this has happened on their site since it was established just over a decade ago. Announcement According to the Washington Post, over 172 million people use Reddit each month and the social media site is well-known for its ‘anything goes’ strategy. The…

    You might have seen Igniyte’s Managing Partner, Caroline Skipsey, appear on BBC Breakfast this morning to discuss the Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) report on fake online reviews, just released today. Igniyte was asked by the CMA to help in their investigation of companies and review sites and they used Igniyte’s research in their report which revealed that over half (51%) of UK companies have been hit by unfounded criticism and malicious postings or have been targeted by trolls in the past year.

  • France orders Google to apply ‘right to be forgotten’ globally

    French data regulator – the CNIL – has given Google a time limit of 15 days to apply the ‘right to be forgotten’ to all of its Google domains, not just its European ones. The order comes after the CNIL stated it received “hundreds” of complaints from French citizens who’d had their applications refused when the CNIL believes Google should have complied. The Google Spain ruling – most commonly referred to as the ‘right to be forgotten’ – was introduced in May last year following a ruling by the European Court of Human Rights, allowing individuals to apply to Google to…

  • List Building 101 Tip #47 — Offer Free Products and Put an Opt-In Box on Those Pages - Internet Marketing Muscle

    Bill Davis
    28 Jul 2015 | 7:00 am
    One method for building your email subscriber list is to offer free products that people can download in exchange for opting in. Place your opt-in form on the download page itself, or even as a requirement before they get their free product. People absolutely love to get free items that are high quality. This will start your list out right as people will be interested in what you have to say since you gave them such great value for free. So the caveat here is that your free report is high quality, unique, and offers your visitors information that is enormously useful to them. The post List…
  • List Building 101 Tip #46 — Put An Opt-In Box on Your Thank You Pages - Internet Marketing Muscle

    Bill Davis
    27 Jul 2015 | 7:00 am
    If you have an information product for sale, the chances are good that some people will buy your product even if they have not already signed up to your list. Since you don’t want to lose contact with these customers, you should make sure there is an opt-in box on your thank you (or product download) pages. Obviously, this goes hand-in-hand with the last tip. Some people force their customers to opt-in before they get their product. This is not recommended most of the time as it can really irritate people who have bought your product and just want access to it. What you might do instead…
  • List Building 101 Tip #45 — Put An Opt-In Box On Every Page Of Your Site - Internet Marketing Muscle

    Bill Davis
    24 Jul 2015 | 7:00 am
    Many people make the mistake of only including an opt-in box on one or two pages of their website. If list building is a large part of your business plan (and after reading this, it had better be), you need to make sure your opt-in form is on every single page of your site. If someone lands on a page of your website that does not contain an opt-in form, you’ve lost a potential lifetime customer. By placing an opt-in box on every page of your site you know that everyone that lands there will have a chance to sign up. Making this simple change can dramatically increase your signups!
  • List Building 101 Tip #44 — Consider Using A Pop-Up or Pop-In - Internet Marketing Muscle

    Bill Davis
    23 Jul 2015 | 7:00 am
    There are a lot of differing opinions on using pop-ups or pop-ins with opt-in forms. If you have a pop-up on your webpage, a box will come onto the screen with your opt-in form when someone visits. Some of these even darken the rest of the webpage so that the only thing people can really see is the opt-in form. This is called a “light box.” Keep in mind that some potential customers will find this annoying and will simply leave your page. Still, many marketers have found that it greatly increased their opt-in rates. This is something you will have to test. As I alluded to in Tip…

    Bill Davis
    22 Jul 2015 | 7:00 am
    Many people who are new to list building put their opt-in form on just one tiny area their webpage and wonder why no one is signing up. If your opt-in form is not clearly visible and without priority placement, you’re going to get very few sign-ups. It is a much better idea to make it very visible and above the fold. That means that as soon as someone lands on your webpage they should be able to see your opt-in form without having to scroll down at all. This is especially important for mobile viewers. You should also make sure that your form is large enough to read and uses contrasting…

    LeadPages is probably the most popular Landing Page generator, used by many (if not all) of the top marketers. But is it right for you — or is there a better alternative to LeadPages? If you’re using WordPress then yes, I believe there is a much better (and cheaper) alternative to LeadPages, using a WordPress landing page plugin. One of the biggest objections to using LeadPages is the cost — it’s a constant monthly fee as opposed to a one-off charge — so you are forever paying for it, unlike a product that you purchase and then it’s yours forever.

    Running a two-sided marketplace, we see interesting arguments from both the buy and sell side. Consider these two questions: “Why would anyone pay money for a website that can be built from scratch for next to nothing?” and “Why would anyone sell their profitable websites rather than just keeping/growing it themselves?” The former is clearly a website builder—someone who can’t understand why anyone would buy when it could be built from scratch.

    Freeman Dyson, an English-born American theoretical physicist and mathematician, once said – “Technology is a gift of God. After the gift of life it is perhaps the greatest of God’s gifts. It is the mother of civilizations, of arts and of sciences.” The “we have a tool for that” era has taken the world by storm. Technology amazes us every now and then – it is wonderful to see how tools make some of the hardest jobs as easy as abc.

    Retargeting is like the “cool” guy in High School. You know the one: tall, leather jacket, motorcycle, dark sunglasses … you know, the one who got all the ladies… we all knew one at some point.

The one not hanging out with the in-crowd who have all been to your website, but instead chills with the ones who haven’t been there at all.

    Hey Lorrie the first question that I always ask people is how many setbacks and seeming failures did you have to push through to get you to where you are today? I love asking this as I believe so many people fall short of their dreams and goals when they just needed to keep persisting when the going gets tough.  I have lost count of the setbacks, failures and “no’s” I have experienced in my career. I think one of the reasons I am where I am today is because I don’t let negativity get to me. Everything happens for a reason and I have a choice to chose defeat, learn from it and often,…

When we bring a new product to market we begin by developing a product with the right functional features. Through our promotional messages and use, we and our consumers add emotional (brand) attributes to it. Then we sell it at some price in some distribution channels.

  • How to Use Quora to Build Your Authority

    Many bloggers overlook the question-and-answer site Quora, which is an untapped source for traffic. It’s the best authority-building social network because the “currency” of Quora (upvotes) depends on the quality of your answers to the questions others ask. If your website provides how-to posts, training or guru content then Quora is a perfect resource for driving traffic. There’s a good way to use Quora, but also many bad ways. The bad ways will get your answers taken down and your hard work destroyed, so it’s important to be careful. When done right, though, the quality of the…

    Link acquisition remains a key component in any search engine optimization strategy. Google and other search engines still rely heavily on the inbound links pointing to a site to help them assess the authority, trust, and topical relevance of webpages. But to me, effective link builders look beyond how search engines evaluate links. Even if you acquire good links, there’s no guarantee your organic visibility will improve. Remembering that links are portals for potential customers to learn more about products, services or solutions will serve any link builder well.  The best links are those…

  • 6 Lessons Learned From 100K+ of Website Flips

    Greg Nunan
    27 Jul 2015 | 2:55 am
    I recently finalized the deal on my fifth website flip in 2015, with a combined value over $84k all up and in going through the sale process repeatedly have gathered quite a bit of recent information on the website flip process, how to maximize earnings and prepare a site for sale. All up, I’m now over $100k of flips in just a tick over 12 months and believe me when I say that I have made some mistakes along the way. I’ve certainly learned some valuable lessons about how to maximise the value of sites prior to a flip, and I’m now applying the key learnings to all the sites I’m looking…
  • My Failures For The Last 9 Months and Why I’m Sharing Them

    Tung Tran
    6 Jul 2015 | 7:00 am
    When we fail at something, our natural tendency as human beings is to hide it. We fear of losing credibility or being looked down upon by others when sharing our own failures. But who doesn’t have any failure at all in his/her entire life? It’s just an inevitable part of our journey to success. And yes, even the billionaires fail often too. Instead of hiding and shying away from failures, we should embrace them, learn from them and quickly move on because they’re just things of the past. In this article, I will be sharing with you my failures over the last 9 months and some of the…

  • How to Repurpose a Press Release

    Carrie Morgan
    17 Jul 2015 | 10:16 am
    What is the difference between repurposed content and copied content? How can PR pros make use of it to expand coverage? What are a few ways to repurpose a press release? These were just a few of the topics we touched on during a recent #PRprochat Twitter chat –  let me go into a little more detail.

  • Want to Build Trust Online? Don’t Neglect Customer Reviews.

    Carrie Morgan
    14 Jul 2015 | 11:02 am
    Reviews matter, yet so many companies let them grow by default and inattention, rather than a focused effort – rarely monitoring what is being said unless a crisis flares up, grabbing everyone’s attention like firecrackers lit inside a public library. Most restaurants and retail businesses make an effort – smart ones realizing just how much new business they fuel – but monitoring is slim-to-nonexistent for many other types of businesses and there’s no effort made to grow the volume of reviews. I believe the roadblock is often lack of ownership and…

  • Calling Bullshit on SEO “Experts” Who Say Meta Tags Don’t Work

    Carrie Morgan
    6 Jul 2015 | 5:30 pm
    The trouble with reading blog posts about SEO is that everyone believes they know what they’re doing. Argumentative about it, even, as we all fiercely defend our little podium of truth. But like many things in life – which we conveniently forget – everyone’s truth is different, especially when it comes to SEO. It’s deeply intertwined with levels of experience in an infinitely complicated field. It’s also a matter of semantics and context – something often lost in translation when we write. “Truth” is actually opinion and perspective. If…

    Sean Oliver
    23 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    A/B testing has long been a critical driver of growth on the web, but its role in mobile app development is still beginning to take shape. It has been less than a decade since Apple first introduced us to the iPhone and induced the massive proliferation of mobile apps and the huge community of mobile app developers who support them. It’s easy to forget that the first modern mobile app came out only seven years ago, and many of the mobile app teams today are still trying to figure out the perfect formula to acquire, retain, and monetize their users.

  • 3 Ingredients for High Converting Landing Pages

    Robin Johnson
    2 Jul 2015 | 3:00 am
    First impressions matter. And, for many online visitors, a landing page is the first impression or interaction they’ll have with your business. Visitors will typically arrive at a landing page from Google AdWords, social media, display advertising, or as part of a product launch campaign – the goal being that visitors to the page complete a desired action like sign up or submit their email. Optimizing landing pages on your website enhances the user experience and is a much more effective, ROI-friendly way to drive conversions than by just throwing more traffic at the page.

    A general theory suggests that “good bounce rate falls in between 30% to 50% “.

Here are some tips: Remove Unnecessary Items from your Design If your website contains the design of 90’s. I recommend changing it swiftly.
