    Even though travel review websites are gaining popularity and significance among travelers, many hoteliers still do not leverage travel reviews to their hotel’s advantage. It is very important to respond and interact with guests through reviews, in order to prove that their voices matter, fix any issues that are mentioned and improve the credibility of your hotel. On the positive side, many hoteliers may have several ideas on how to respond to positive and negative reviews. However, it is important determine which responses and behaviors to avoid in order to consistently convey a…

  • Negative SEO in the Legal Industry: A Desperate Move that’s here to Stay?

    30 Jul 2014 | 2:06 am
    In the past two months (or so), we have seen instances of negative SEO being implemented in major markets by firms that our clients compete against.  As we work through cleanup measures, I am left wondering if this is something that is becoming more widespread in the legal niche.  Perhaps it is the fact that some of the (previously) visible firms in those areas took a hit from Google’s algorithm update a few months back, effectively wiping out campaigns they had thrown a good deal of money at.  Did that lead to a sense of desperation and a need to fix it regardless of the…

    Every time a new iPhone comes out I have raked in a few easy thousand bucks. Step 1) Get a bunch of cash out of the bank. Step 2) Get some kids you know and trust to goto phone stores where they have lines and camp out at midnight this Thursday night. Step 3) Give them each plenty of cash to cover the iPhone Plus. I always try to get the smaller versions first. So they will need about 1200 MAX for the biggest one out of contract. If they can with contract should be half that or less. Step 4) Get iPhones at store. Go home list on eBay for the full amount you just paid $50 shipping (shipping…

    Watching Apple’s latest keynote/product launch,  the marketer in me,  couldn’t help but be amazed at the amount of work they do in presenting the product.  Its nothing new for Apple but I think its the reason for their success. The iPhone & the new Apple Watch are extremely innovative and ahead of its time but most of their products since have had competitors that were already doing a lot of the new features they are. Apple’s presentation of these products is truly amazing.  It reminds me of one of my kids favorite movies – Megamind. Check out Apple’s…

Our research in this area always focuses on two objectives: uncovering emerging approaches and determining alignment with best practices.

    So you have all these great ideas for your business marketing: an app that will take over the world, an e-book that will change the industry as we know it, a banner ad people will actually click on. Ideas and passion are fuel for successful campaigns, but you also need the structure that strategy provides to propel your product into your customer’s hands. Creativity and strategy work hand-in-hand. If campaigns are solely strategic, they have a tendency to be unoriginal. Purely creative campaigns can lack direction or may not connect with the target market. Combining the logical with the…

    So, you’ve paid your money, you’ve waited 4-6 months and now you’ve done it… You are on the first page for one of your keywords! What does that really mean? Absolutely nothing. Why? Because there is a huge distinction between traffic and rankings. I like rankings, but I love traffic! Isn’t the whole point of higher rankings to have more traffic to your site? Literally, this morning before I started my writing, I was emailing with a potential client who said that he wanted a quote to increase his rankings.  He said that his current SEO marketer was doing okay, but he felt he could…
  • What You Don’t Know About Your Website

    Travis Matheny
    11 Aug 2014 | 6:34 am
    You may think that your website is nothing more than pictures and info about your products or company, but from the moment your visitor shows up, your website is using multiple factors to communicate one of two powerful messages: buy or don’t buy. Your website is designed to do something specific. It is made to get your visitors to embrace a certain message or to take a certain action. That’s why your website needs to look good at first glance because it says a lot about who you are and what your brand is about. As they say, “first impressions last.” People see your website as their…

    Small Businesses need technology now-a-days to market, keep in touch with customers and to organize and make transactions.

As of January 2013 Google plus has surpassed twitter with 359 million active users. Here are ways on how to grab people’s attention. 1. Let’s start with the basics and that would be your profile.

  • Golfing and Socializing (or What’s This Social Media Sales Crap?)

    John Danenbarger
    10 Sep 2014 | 4:31 am
    By John Danenbarger, Do you play golf for business?  Or even thought about it…not as a pro, but to make connections? Many years ago, because of the business I was in, I decided to take the big leap to join a country club so that I could meet “the right people.”  Of course, I never admitted that to anyone in the club.  I even tried to act as if I really didn’t need to work. Golf and Socializing Yes, membership was terribly expensive and the season was short in New England.  But one good client could pay for the cost of my club membership, and besides, it was good…
  • Spark a Real Conversation for Your Business on Twitter and Facebook

    John Danenbarger
    25 Aug 2014 | 10:56 am
    Whenever we write a post on Facebook or a tweet on Twitter, we hope to generate a reaction. Ideally, we’ll see lots of likes or retweets, plenty of comments or replies, and the kind of sharing that turns a piece of content viral and spreads the brand’s name across the Internet. At the very least, we want to see some sort of response — and, if we want organic Facebook reach to stretch beyond a tiny percentage of our page’s followers, we need that response. It doesn’t always happen. Part of the work of social selling is creating content, then checking the response to see which topics…
  • Twitter Users Talk Brands, But Mostly to Themselves

    John Danenbarger
    17 Aug 2014 | 4:54 am
    By John Danenbarger, A study released earlier this year by Pew Research Center has good news and bad news for marketers active in social selling. The good news is that people are discussing brands frequently enough for researchers to see clear patterns in their conversations. The bad news is that when they discuss those brands, they’re mostly talking to themselves. The study, made in association with the Social Media Research Foundation, used NodeXL, an open-source template for graphing network data, to track Twitter conversations and portray them as a network map. The…
  • Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn… Three Wrenches to Unlock Social Selling

    John Danenbarger
    12 Aug 2014 | 4:54 am
    By John Danenbarger, Open a toolbox and the contents can all look the same: a row of metal handles with different-sized heads at the end. But those differences are vital. Each wrench is meant for a different nut and a different bolt, and if you use the wrong tool for the wrong job, you won’t get the result you want. The same is true of social selling. Although social media platforms can look as similar as a set of wrenches, they have different marketing roles and each needs to be used in a different way. It’s not just the demographics of the platforms that differ —…
  • Facebook Tells Users to Unfollow Pages, Emphasizes Social Selling

    John Danenbarger
    4 Aug 2014 | 3:34 am
    You might think that Facebook would want its members to follow Pages. You might think that the more Pages its members follow, the more valuable those followers will be to brands and the more brands will remain active on the site. So you would expect that Facebook would encourage members to hit that follow button as often as possible, then make it difficult for them to unfollow. In fact, the opposite appears to be happening. Some users have recently reported seeing a pop-up on Page posts in their news feeds, encouraging them to stop following the Page. It looks like this: That is not what the…

    Too often, website developers get some initial input from their clients and then go away to design and develop the website. This results in two possible outcomes. In the first outcome, the designer gets it right and the client is happy. Everything's good. More often, the client isn't happy and either asks for major revisions or accepts the website and walks away unhappy. Neither of these outcomes is good for either party.

    I’m old enough to remember a time when businesses debated whether or not they needed a website, but those days are gone forever. Today, your website is more important than it has ever been. When your salespeople leave a message and give a company name, the prospect is more likely to visit your website than to call you back. That’s why your website matters more than ever.

    1 Jul 2014 | 7:02 am
    Following the recent rants of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver on his comedy news show, I lamented that my dream of a perfect-equality, utopian internet could be corrupted by FCC rules which will allow ISPs (Internet Service Providers) to charge additional fees for preferential access to deliver online videos and other content at faster speeds. It occurred to me that this new paradigm would set up an inequitable online superhighway with a fast lane for travel industry partners with big bucks and a slow lane for everyone else. With the exception of large corporate interests,…

  • Measurement: Don’t Get Caught in the Weeds

    Adrienne Sheares
    19 Sep 2014 | 10:26 am
    NPR is pretty much a pillar of American society. Even if you’re not a listener, you probably know someone who religiously listens to the network on the way to work, school, during work or while straightening up the house. Like all modern businesses, technology created new competition NPR. Nope it’s not CNN, the WSJ or another radio news program; it’s iTunes. People listening to NPR in the car is NPR’s bread and butter. What happens to the network in our mp3/iTunes culture? During the final day of AMEC Measurement Week, NPR’s Lauren Bracey Scheidt, product manager for consumer…
  • RIP AVE and Hello Big Data for PR

    Adrienne Sheares
    18 Sep 2014 | 3:24 pm
    Over a decade ago, data and PR were rarely used in the same sentence. Now, with the explosion of resources for measuring and tracking, PR pros can no longer run away from data. To succeed in modern day PR, practitioners need to embrace having the ability to track PR like never before and leverage it to achieve success. But how do you sort through vanity metrics and avoid data overload? During the fourth day of AMEC’s Measurement Week in NYC, two sets of measurement experts focused on how agencies and PR pros as a whole need to be looking at success. Here are some key takeaways: It’s Time…
  • Vine for PR: Powerful Messaging in 6 Seconds!

    18 Sep 2014 | 4:45 am
    …Vine: a mobile service that lets you capture and share short looping videos. Like Tweets, the brevity of videos on Vine (6 seconds or less) inspires creativity. Source: Twitter While its now longer the new kid on the block in social media, Vine is proving itself to be surprisingly strong as a tactic for public relations. And, although it might seem to be a tool designed solely for use in business to consumer communications, PR professionals are using Vine effectively to deliver creative and impactful messages, build relationships and even pitch media and online influencers. Vine, a mobile…
  • Think Different: Regulated PR and Mythical Formulas

    17 Sep 2014 | 4:04 pm
    If Day 3 of AMEC’s Measurement Week in NYC had a one-word theme, it might be “different.” Laura A. Grover, senior digital strategy director at Quintiles, discussed how regulated industries use social media, while providing universal social best practices. After that, K.C. Brown, general manager of Cision Global Analysts, discussed why measuring PR doesn’t have a one-size-fits-all formula. (Hint: It has to do with differences.) Without further ado, let’s get to some of the days best insights. Social Media in a Regulated Industry Individuals and brands have adopted social media for…
  • 4 Ways to Offend a Journalist on Social Media

    Susan Payton
    17 Sep 2014 | 4:45 am
    While it’s known that more than half of journalists use social media to find sources for stories, they’re not always keen on being pitched there. Every journalist has her own preferences about being approached on social, and it’s easy to burn bridges if you’re not careful. That being said, here’s the fastest way to offend and get on a journalist’s blacklist. 1. Not Reading Their Stream Just because a journalist is on social media doesn’t mean he uses it for his reporting. If you’d looked at his Facebook profile before sending a friend invite, you might have noticed his stream…

  • How to Protect Your Website From Brute Force Attacks

    8 Sep 2014 | 8:14 am
    Brute Force Attacks are the simplest method hackers use to gain access to a website. These Internet “bullies” try different usernames and passwords repeatedly–even using specially made “bots” that generate random sequences of characters, until they get in. Their easiest targets? Those who use simple passwords like ’123456′ and usernames like “admin”. Due to the nature of these attacks, you may find the number of http requests (the number of times someone visits your site) is so high your host server’s memory goes through the roof,…

  • Are You Networking or Just Connecting on Your Social Media?

    15 Feb 2014 | 9:00 am
    Social Media is important to the success of your business.  Are you using it to your advantage? Most businesses use LinkedIn to connect with other businesses, but is that all there is to LinkedIn?  Try this–it works! When I connect with someone on LinkedIn, I send that person a message to let him or her know I would like to meet them, either at their place of business or mine. For me, LinkedIn is not just about making connections; it is about REAL networking. By actually meeting my new connection, we may be able to do business with each other, or know another business that could use…

Holliday Lake is very family friendly with a large beach, picnic shelters, snack shop, playground, hiking trails, fishing spots, campground among many other amenities and things to do. Kids will have a blast playing on the beach, jumping off the swim platform, and climbing on and sliding off huge floating water toys in the designated swimming area, which always has a lifeguard on duty during operating hours. You can also canoe and kayak, play volleyball, build sandcastles–or hunt butterflies! We shot pictures and…

    In July, Bill, Cindy, Robert and I made it to James River State Park. We started filming Virginia State Parks to create virtual tours that will be added to their redesigned website. At James River State Park, we shot video of the children’s discovery area, a section of the park with tunnels, trails, a water pump, musical instruments, and other things for children to run around and play in. The children’s discovery area is very shaded, which makes it great on even the hottest days (like that day!). We filmed children of all ages – from infants to teenagers – having a…

    16 Jul 2014 | 1:52 pm
    Even after so many success stories for companies using social media to build brand and get more customers, some companies are still skeptical. Sure, Coca Cola and Old Spice can create amazing campaigns garnering millions of “Likes” and impressive boosts in sales. But what about the small to medium-sized business that doesn’t have a million dollar creative budget with a dozen well-paid brand ambassadors to get the word out? Small companies and even startups can still compete, but they do have to get creative with their engagement. In just a few months, Karma Collective built its business…

  • The Limits of Social Media Control at the World Cup

    Derek Denholm
    17 Jun 2014 | 3:53 pm
    Marketing communications used to be about controlling the message. In the age of social media marketing, it’s getting more common for organizations to latch on to an existing meme or popular user-generated content as the starting point for an online marketing campaign. Particularly for small to mid-sized companies that don’t have Coca Cola’s multi-million dollar online advertising budget, executives are fine with losing a bit of creative control if it means they can latch on to an existing YouTube video, twitter handle or blog that’s already getting plenty of eyeballs. Not so with the…

    I was sitting on a bus to work the other day. The traffic was slow thanks to Sydney peak hour. My eyes were getting a little tired so I looked up and saw the advertisements on the buses. The printed banners displayed were from Virgin Mobile. The messaging was: “If you’re looking up here, you’ve probably run out of data” I had a little chuckle – how people interact with information in their daily lives has changed so much. More people look down to their mobile and it’s not surprising to anyone that most of life’s activities, from shopping for…

    Sometimes, in an attempt to maximize web traffic, small- and medium-sized businesses get so caught up in reaching wider markets that they overlook a growth market right under their noses — their own local prospects.

    With approximately 90% of Web traffic starting from the search engine results and three quarters of that from the first page of the results alone, it should be obvious why SEO must become a major part of your digital marketing strategy. SEO has been around since the dawn of the Internet, and although the industry has changed enormously over the years, the goal to increase a website’s standing in the search engines has never changed. SEO has long been considered by many to be somewhat of a black art, largely because of its association with spam and other black-hat marketing tactics.

I've often heard that if you can do something for 21 days straight, it will become a habit and you'll never forget to do it again - and as it turns out, that advice is wrong.

    21 Sep 2014 | 4:37 am
    My writing journal for Sunday, September 21, 2014. You can find all the writing journal entries here. It’s Sunday, which means that it will be another short writing day. As usual, I started the day off writing fiction, and managed 1,400 words. It’s going slowly this morning. Sometimes the writing flows as slowly as molasses in winter. It’s aggravating. I hate it, because I’m usually a fast writer; I can focus and get it done. Of course, annoyance just makes it harder to focus. :-) Next, I do a little more on the client’s book proposal for a memoir. I need to be ready to start…

    If you want to be productive, you need good productivity tools. Not only can the right tools save you time, they can make you smarter as well. I’ve always been interested in productivity software; I used to review software for computer magazines, back in the day. Hands down, my favorite productivity app of all time is the dear departed Lotus Agenda. Agenda fans have been looking for a replacement for 20 years. The program had a steep learning curve. But once you’d figured it out, with the help of a couple of thick manuals, Agenda did what no other software has done as well: it made you…

I manage two scenes: 2,500 words. Next week, I’ll begin a new ghostwriting project: a book proposal for a memoir. I’ve already done several interviews with the client, so I have lots of material. In preparation for starting on the memoir, I spend a couple of timer sessions reading through what I have, and developing cluster diagrams. Time for Honey’s breakfast.

I managed to complete the nonfiction book edits; that’s now ready to go off to the client. I need to complete the rush copywriting job; that will take a while. I make a good start on it. Time for Honey’s breakfast, and my own. I read email while I eat my toast, and have a couple of extra-strong coffees. All the student feedback will need to wait until tomorrow. I have a meeting late this afternoon. It will take several hours, so I won’t be able to write tonight.

  • Six Red Flags that You’re Selecting the Wrong Outsourced Marketing Company

    Emily Homrok
    2 Sep 2014 | 12:00 pm
    The obvious purpose of outsourcing any function is to make your business function better than it already does – but many companies end up making their situation worse by selecting companies that don’t work out.  I overhear the horror stories at client onboarding meetings.  Situations like a company hiring a ‘marketing expert’ whose end product was convincing the company that their lobby needed to be redecorated and then helping them do so.  Stories like marketing companies who outsource every aspect of a campaign and then have no answer as to why things aren’t…
  • Are You Seeing Accurate Ranking Results when You Google Yourself?

    Jon Lister
    21 Aug 2014 | 1:43 pm
    Google wants to give every searcher the “best” possible results when they use the search engine.  To accomplish this, their developers have created and implemented personalized search; a means of providing results for search queries based on each person’s search history, websites they visit, online buying habits and even their physical location. For webmasters, determining where their own websites rank in Google search results in the age of personalized search is muddier than ever. Personalized results limit the prospect of searchers finding new websites and information, since the…
  • Negative SEO in the Legal Industry: A Desperate Move that’s here to Stay?

    Bernie Clark
    30 Jul 2014 | 2:06 am
    In the past two months (or so), we have seen instances of negative SEO being implemented in major markets by firms that our clients compete against.  As we work through cleanup measures, I am left wondering if this is something that is becoming more widespread in the legal niche.  Perhaps it is the fact that some of the (previously) visible firms in those areas took a hit from Google’s algorithm update a few months back, effectively wiping out campaigns they had thrown a good deal of money at.  Did that lead to a sense of desperation and a need to fix it regardless of the…
  • The Ethics of Bidding on a Competing Law Firm’s Name in Adwords: States Weigh in

    Craig Toncic
    23 Jul 2014 | 9:25 am
    Advertising is an area where attorneys must tread carefully and review both statutory and ethical implications before taking action. While a lawyer should never delegate his or her duty to perform a thorough review, working alongside an experienced and trusted legal marketing company can decrease the likelihood that an ethical violation or other wrong-doing will occur. However, as you will see, it is essential to note that the lawyer is the most familiar with the laws and ethical obligations imposed in his or her jurisdiction or jurisdictions. Let us take a look at a fairly widely-reported…
  • Virtual Legal Practices: Beware of Rapidly Shifting Ethics Rules in your Jurisdiction

    Craig Toncic

    Technological innovation is reshaping the practice of law in ways that didn’t seem possible 10-15 years ago. As recently as the turn of this most recent century, and, if you needed a lawyer you were likely to seek a word-of-mouth referral from family, friends or perhaps from another professional you did business with. Upon receiving a recommendation, you would then probably call the office and arrange for an in-person meeting at a law firm. For many practices, the rapid pace of technological change seems to have confined this whole process to history. Today, those seeking a lawyer…

    Are your marketing communications relevant, personalized, and behavior driven? Is your marketing program driven by critical data? Do you have a single view of your customer? Are you maximizing all channels? While these are goals that all marketers aspire to, the answers for most marketers are “no.” (Or for the ultra-sophisticated, the answers might be, “not as much as I would like.”) If we all know that’s where we want to go, why aren’t we there yet? There are many different practical reasons, but a big, less practical reason is this: As busy marketers, we rarely allow ourselves…

    Despite handing customers the mic and giving them easy access to corporate decision makers, the vast majority of organizations are finding that customer satisfaction is low. How can that be when so many business and marketing professionals are making a conscious effort to monitor their social, digital and customer service channels…and respond accordingly?

    In big business today, the role of Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) is increasingly positioned as a critical one when it comes to corporate success. Today’s buyers are savvy, demanding, and connected – a dangerous combination for the companies striving to keep them happy in a competitive market.

    A contact page is one of the most important and least utilized components of the average website. The contact page is where visitors to your website can find the information they need to reach out to you in whatever manner they feel most comfortable with – whether that’s by sending an email, picking up the telephone, licking a postage stamp, or stopping by your store or office for a face-to-face conversation. Many website contact pages offer little more than an email address, telephone number, physical address if appropriate, and perhaps a message or contact form; the downside of this…

  • Is Your Site Leaking Traffic? Here’s How to Fix It

    Gary Korisko
    9 Jun 2014 | 11:00 pm
      Your blog is leaking visitors. And if you’ve read my last post, you know exactly what I’m talking about. They visit, look around for a few seconds – and leave as suddenly as they came. Most estimates say that the average web site visitor will give you only 10 seconds (or less) to make a great impression before they click away. If you don’t make a dramatic impression… *poof!* They’re gone forever. The painful truth is that if you can’t wow new visitors in the first few seconds, everything else means nothing. Your epic content. Your voice. Your podcast. Your webinars.

Without constant strategising, you may miss out on valuable opportunities that are associated with shopping seasons and events such as summer, Valentine’s Day, and Christmas, to name a few. In SEO, you would want to rank for a keyword, search phrase or theme before the Christmas period, because magic doesn’t happen overnight.

  • Hispanic Heritage Month is for Connecting, Not Empty Translations

    19 Sep 2014 | 10:49 am
    For those of you that may not know its history, Hispanic Heritage Month kicks off with El Grito on el 16 de Septiembre. It’s based on Mexico’s revolt and eventual independence from Spain. Here in the U.S., September 15th – October 15th is celebrated as Hispanic Heritage Month, and is not just limited to those of Mexican descent, but recognizes and celebrates Latino cultures from other Latin American countries as well. I’m happy and proud that our heritage is honored for the month. But it’s important to stop and remind ourselves (and others) that this is a celebration of a very rich…

    If a great commercial or advertisement appears on the air, and no one is there to see or hear it, does it make a sound? We don’t think so. Advertising takes more than making an awesome commercial (though your commercials should certainly be awesome). Someone has to see the commercial. And not just anyone – your target audience. That’s why effective media buying is so important. In this article we will take you through the ins and outs of media buying and share some tips on how to do it right. What is Media Buying? Media buying differs from “earned” or “owned” media. It falls…

  • Does the HTTPS Ranking Update Matter for Your SEO?

    Joel Solomon
    10 Sep 2014 | 12:00 am
    It goes like this: Google regularly tweaks their algorithm, but once every few months, Google announces a major change. The SEO world starts to talk, articles get passed around, and everyone gets excited about how to adjust their strategy to account for the new ranking signal. But sometimes the chatter gets going a little too quickly, and well-meaning SEOs devote far too much effort in things that don’t really make much of an impact. Just last month, Google announced that it now officially includes HTTPS as a ranking signal in its algorithm. This isn’t a big surprise, given Google’s…

    When you look at the social media landscape as it stands today, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Twitter was one of the first big success stories of Web 2.0. You can’t watch a live TV show without seeing a hashtag flashing up on the screen, and every plumber or tradesman seems to proudly display the Twitter bird on the side of their van. In reality, Twitter was actually a bit of a late-comer to the party, only really making a real splash in 2009/10, when Facebook and MySpace had already entrenched themselves as social behemoths. Founded in 2006, Twitter only topped 1 million…

    It is often easy when pursuing a digital marketing campaign to forget about the importance of offline marketing. According to a February 2014 study by Ascend2 and Netprospex, only 25% of B2B marketers worldwide have direct mail that is integrated with email campaigns. Email marketing is great, but by and large the open rates on an email are much lower than the open rates that come with direct mailers. Furthermore, if you don't have an online point of contact - direct mailers can be a good way to add offline contacts to your online database as well. Indeed, some of the best results come when…

Unlike many other marketing channels where this might mean falling behind the competition or having your strategy become worthless with time, SEO differs in that not paying attention to developing trends can not only mean that your efforts will become less effective, but also that your old strategies will actually begin to hurt your business.

Through some intervention and through additional careful link building and link earning, you are able to…
