    So the last couple days I have been raving about the Engagifire pop up software.  F’in amazing.  Its unbelieveable and at only $27 lifetime…  I dunno how they do it.  Well I have talked about that enough.  Today is the last day they will have the “Flash Sale” and I don’t think its a scarcity thing. There is no possible way they can do a one time price for all that does and host it.  I bet it goes to $99 a month soon.

    With International Women’s Day just behind us, it seems like a good time to take a look at some of the best women-empowering social campaigns.  I was particularly drawn to those with real staying power, that go beyond ‘holiday promotion’ and demonstrate more of a commitment by the brand to effect real change. Central to many of these campaigns is the impact our choice of words has on girls’ self-images.  Equally striking is how brands use powerful storytelling – often in her own voice – to bring the issues to light and help change the conversation.

    Yesterday I talked about how I was looking at replacing my Bounce Exchange popup that collected leads to this new thing. I get Bounce Exchange for free (it starts at 5k/month) but honestly I wanted more functionality and this looked promising. So yesterday I talked and thought I would implement it over the weekend. But its so simple to setup I had it running in under an hour. This thing is unbelieveable and the best thing is it does not require wordpress. That is a HUGE thing for me cause a lot of times I want to collect leads but not inside of wordpress or then code out my own popup. Pain in…
  • New Report Shows How Email Remains King For Getting Your Message Out

    As you all know I am a huge proponent of permission based email marketing… So I always keep up with the news related to it. You know the saying… “Dance with the girl that brought ya” ? It could not be truer than with email marketing. So many people get distracted with the new, cutting edge, techniques that they forget about the time tested proven year after year ones. eMarketer recently published a report that states that 37% of consumers send or read email messages “a lot” — ranking email above the 20% posting and reading messages on Facebook, Instagram or other social…

I was hooked and joined various internet forums to connect with others and learn more about making money on the internet. On Sep 19, 2004 (yes I just looked it up) I joined the Digital Point forums.

    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.

    So yesterday I was dropping off my daughter Hannah’s running shoes which she left behind before she got on the bus.  On the way home, I noticed that one of the signs outside of a local eatery here in town was hanging half down and it’s the only sign visible for this restaurant on the side of the building facing the road. Being that I just ate there last week with my wife and the owner talked with us for at least a 1/2 hour while we ate our lunch, I felt a connection to the place.  Rather then just letting it go, I picked up my phone, used Siri and called the restaurant and let…

Money. Where did it all go? Well, lets just say that the Boxer family had a good time, did some cool stuff and lived a little bit outside of their means. Just over the past three weeks, I’ve made some adjustments to my spending habits and have…

  • Publish or Perish?

    Kevin Lynch
    24 Mar 2015 | 6:44 am
    For anyone working to advance their career in academics, the maxim of ‘publish or perish’ is deadly accurate. Moving up the department ladder to tenured status requires producing a steady stream of scholarly articles, which are rarely read by anyone other than the author and their committee of peers.  This luxury of scholarly pursuit may be acceptable behind the ivy covered wall of academia, but nowhere else. Yet for far too many B2B marketers, the ‘publish or perish’ paradigm also holds sway. Faced with multiple channels to fill and editorial calendars to keep pace with, too many,…

    To say that mobile advertising’s growth is meteoric is to have what my brother calls a “keen grasp of the obvious.” U.S. users are now spending the majority of their time consuming digital media within mobile applications, according to comScore. Combined with mobile web, mobile usage as a whole accounts for 60% of time spent online. Many companies think that because they don’t offer an app or sell online, that they don’t need to pay attention to mobile. Think again. Just because you don’t leverage in your products or services does not mean people are not using mobile to find you.
  • Content: The Bridge for Uniting Sales and Marketing

    Kathy Baughman
    3 Mar 2015 | 7:27 am
    The “war” between sales and marketing is legendary inside many organizations. Sales thinks marketing provides little value and marketing thinks sales is uncooperative and places the blame for underperformance on them. Content, which should be a bridge between the two, reinforces this disconnect. Sales: “Marketing creates content that is useless in my world.” Marketing: “Sales doesn’t use our content even though this is what customers want.” According to SiriusDecisions, 60-70% of B2B content produced by marketing goes unused, sitting on sales portals and website shelves. One of…

    This month we have turned to dig up the possibilities and opportunities that lie within long tail keywords. With as much as 70% of searches falling into the long tail keywords category, it seems quite obvious that having a great understanding of this topic is very important, especially to those in charge of drumming up search traffic. What are Long Tail Keywords? Long tail keywords are defined as a search containing 3 or more words which in turn produces a more specific group of search results. Here is an example: “Coffee shop in Minneapolis” vs. “Coffee” The first…

  • Internet Marketing For Asshats

    Ian Lurie
    18 Mar 2015 | 1:34 pm
    Evil is easier! There are internet marketers. Then there are 100% pure internet marketing asshats. They stomp their moral compass to bits in the interest of earning more dollars (or pounds, or drachmas, or whatever). These are a few examples of their tactics: Commit libel Asshats write headlines that imply horrific things/inappropriate or reputation-destroying behavior, like ‘Is This Model Snorting Coke?’ then explain why it’s very unlikely. That way, you get tons of pageviews. All you had to do was destroy someone’s reputation. And yes, that’s marketing.

MozCon is put on by Moz (formerly known as SEOmoz) an SEO software/tool company in Seattle and MozCon, in the past, has been more commonly known as an SEO conference. As such, I’ve noticed that those that are firmly entrenched in PPC or paid search, haven’t ever been or have little experience with the Moz toolset or brand. But, then there are those that are really familiar with Moz and know what an honor this was to be asked; which meant I got two questions before and after the event:…

  • Don’t be a Craigslist Killing: Raising Awareness for Safer Face-to-Face Transactions

    Greg Collier
    23 Mar 2015 | 8:21 am
    Conducting business with a stranger always brings a certain amount of risk – both for buyer and seller. But, in this digital age of classified advertising, where individuals are conducting one-on-one transactions for used cars, sports tickets, furniture or even intimate relationships, the risk of harm grows exponentially. 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,…

    I have only one question for the person who deflated 11 of the 12 footballs for the New England Patriots when they played against the Indianapolis Colts for the AFC Championship earlier this month. Was it worth it? I mean, here we are, counting down the days until the Super Bowl, the biggest game of the year, and instead of listening to radio hosts and TV analysts talk about the strengths of a running game or weaknesses in the defense, I’m listening to questions about quarterback Tom Brady’s integrity and suggestions that Coach Bill Belichick be suspended from the Super Bowl.

  • Slashing journalism won’t bring new readers, more revenue to newspapers

    14 Oct 2014 | 6:25 am
    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…
  • NFL Under Fire: What Happens after the Buck Stops?

    23 Sep 2014 | 4:24 am
    For sake of full disclosure, I’m a big fan of NFL football – the rivalries, the loyalty of the fans, the final-second plays that lead to victories and upsets. What I’m not a fan of is the off-the-field behavior that has dominated headlines early in this season. In a league as large as the NFL, there’s bound to be a few bad seeds in the bunch. But the gravity of these allegations – domestic abuse, child abuse, sexual assault and more – have put a spotlight on the NFL’s inability to control bad behavior. Sure, the league issued fines and suspensions – but for the…

    Any business owner needs to stay ahead of the trends, and unfortunately, that applies to trends in crime. I’ve said before in blog posts and TV interviews that we don’t carry personals because they can be used as a front for prostitution and human trafficking. We don’t carry pet sale ads, as they often trade in animals that have been bred through puppy mills—breeders who literally breed animals to death, leaving them undernourished and caged without proper exercise or loving contact. We simply won’t even take a chance at supporting criminal industries, so we don’t run the ads that…

    Who doesn’t love charty goodness? Everyone that I know does. Dynamic charty goodness on a dashboard? Yes please?! With that said, you can imagine how excited I was when I came across Dashing, a Sinatra based framework that lets you build beautiful dashboards. However my excitement was short lived when, while I was working on my home dashboard (weather, RSS feeds, the daily Dilbert cartoon), I discovered the RSS widget I was using wouldn’t pull in feeds from StackOverflow. Well that’s a no go, so I updated the existing widget and created RSS Feeds (Updated). Using the…

    A colleague recently posted in a private Facebook group, asking where she could post content to expand her reach and build new relationships. There are so, so many options for sharing your content, and you can get bogged down trying to cover all the bases. However, as a business owner,  if you’re not publishing on LinkedIn, then this is where I suggest you start, if you too, like my colleague, want to expand your reach. LinkedIn has been growing stronger as a platform in the last year or so, and is becoming a contender for getting more eyeballs on your content. With the opening up of…

All of those are good answers. But the list is missing one very important component you may not have thought about in the past: LinkedIn. Promoted (and used) as a professional networking tool, it is usually seen as a means of direct communication with others within your industry. You have a conference to go to, and a quick search will bring up others who have been posting about going. So you can set up…

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.

Being that I just ate there last week with my wife and the owner talked with us for at least a 1/2 hour while we ate our lunch, I felt a connection to the place.  Rather then just letting it go, I picked up my phone, used Siri and called the restaurant and let…

    Jason Jackson
    31 Mar 2015 | 9:12 am
    Independent hotels have to wear many hats to ensure their hotels are operating properly, but this workload can often come at a cost. Some day to day operations can be time consuming and often be put off or forgotten completely. Thankfully, as new hospitality technology comes out, the hotelier’s job continues to get easier. The latest in these tools are the new cloud based Property Management Systems. The biggest advantage of these systems is the cost. Traditional PMS installations and service contracts can often be expensive, and many are outdated. Hoteliers pay once and won’t look for…
  • Collecting Guest Surveys to Improve Your Hotel

    Sandra Martinez
    20 Mar 2015 | 5:20 pm
    With how many reservations move through hotels every year, there is a wealth of data available to the hotelier who is willing to put the time into analyzing it. With the powerful reporting tools available through a hotel’s distribution channels, PMS and booking engine, it’s easy to spot booking trends and begin rate forecasting. But what about the data that walks out the door after each check out? Every guest that stays at a hotel has a wealth of knowledge that only a fraction of them are willing to share, and when they do it typically comes in the form of a review. TripAdvisor and Yelp…

    Traditionally when new competition moves into a hotel’s territory there is enough time to prepare and adjust marketing and pricing strategies. New constructions can take several months to years depending on the size of the property, so this traditional type of competition is easy to see coming. However, with the recent popularity of home/room sharing services like AirBnB and HomeAway, the competition is seemingly unknown and can change over nights. Travelers looking for a unique and local experience are already going to shy away from large brands already, but traditionally they would look…

    Let’s face it: first impressions count. And when it comes to finding a hotel, review sites can have a huge impact on whether a prospective customer decides to book with you or not. But despite all of this, many hoteliers don’t have time to manage the comments that are left on these review websites. In fact, statistics suggest that only 56% of hotels respond to TripAdvisor reviews – despite this being one of the world’s most visited travel sites. Whether the review is good, bad, or indifferent, responding to them can have a whole host of benefits. Although some reviews…

    Brian Massey, The Conversion Scientist

    Split tests are a favored tool of economists, direct response mailers and website optimizers. The primary challenge when creating a split test is being sure that you’re measuring exactly what you think you’re measuring. As my grandmother used to say, “The road to bad conclusions is paved with uncontrolled variables.” Yes, we are a geeky family. When your variables get out of hand, all hell breaks lose, and you end up testing something you didn’t intend to test. When comparing humans, nothing beats twins for experimenting.

    Growing up, I led a relatively modest life in rural England. I lived on a large farming estate with my parents and two sisters. My dad worked (and still works) for the estate as an agricultural worker. After staying at home with the kids, my mum worked hard to build a career in accounting with no prior knowledge. And she succeeded. I’ve always been taught that we should make the best of ourselves that we can – whether that be through education or on the job work experience. That means not living off the state unless we fall into hard times and not expecting something for…

But rarely would I get that with my daughter. The teacher proceeded to ask me if I’d noticed any issues with my daughter’s speech. I felt defensive and said I hadn’t. That was the truth.

  • Is Your Digital Marketing Driving You Mad? Tips from The March Madness Playbook

    Diana Wells
    23 Mar 2015 | 2:00 am
    March Madness is here and those brackets are heating up! If you are into college basketball or your spouse or colleagues at work are into it, then you have no doubt been asked to play the brackets. Some groups play for quarters, some play for chores and, of course, there are those that play for the big bucks (I am not one of those). Then, you have the manner in which each person or group chooses to play; the “oh, I’m just joining in the fun, but don’t care either way” method, the “I hope my team wins” method and the ever popular “You are going down and I will never let you…
  • Internet Explorer is Going Away: Microsoft’s Project Spartan To Save the Day?

    Diana Wells
    20 Mar 2015 | 2:00 am
    It would seem that the rumors and the wishful thinking of many (if not everyone) have come true and Microsoft has now confirmed that Internet Explorer is going away. (Yippee!) In the midst of the cheering that I am sure followed such an announcement, they have also said that they are working on its replacement, which currently remains nameless but tagged as Project Spartan. Microsoft’s Project Spartan – The Hero? If the project name, even though temporary, means anything then this new Microsoft browser should be clean, powerful and focused on nothing but its duty to those of us using…

    I gave two presentations at this years SMX conference in Munich. The first presentation is a version of a talk I have given several times in the past year about digital measurement strategy, and is also the subject of this companion blog post. While I hope to cover all of the slides from this presentation in future posts, today I wanted to talk specifically about the need for strategy in digital marketing. There is too much industry focus is on tactical marketing and tools to get the job done. I have been in countless meetings where the focus was around which tools we should purchase to…

    Don’t Click.     I wanted to let my tip hang there. I was annoyed recently after seeing so many posts come across my RSS feed with extremely specific numbers in the title (yes, I still use RSS to discover content). I know that these are designed to add credibility to the post, and that bigger and more specific numbers are thought draw more clicks. But that doesn’t mean that I love this tactic. It seems to be everywhere right now, probably because it draws in a large number of links and social shares for those who employ it. Or maybe they are just copycats who see others and do…

    About 1% of the posts I write get more than 100 social shares. Probably 50% of the posts get no shares beyond my auto scheduled social posts. It is enough to want me to give up writing at times. But there are always moments that keep me pushing forward, and they always come from the most unexpected places. Like the time that I wrote this blog post that had about 500 views when published. I considered it a failure for months. Then at a conference the CEO of another agency told me that he loved the post. He said that he sent it around the office and made it required reading.

    Hiring quality PPC managers was always very difficult. I reviewed thousands of resumes, had hundreds of phone screens, tons of in person interviews and even made a few hires along the way. With so many data points to reference between candidates, I started to develop a profile of the ideal PPC candidate. The best candidates had qualities that rarely made it into a job description or a resume. Sure, being Google AdWords certified would help you get a phone interview, but you still needed to prove yourself worthy. So what was the #1 quality that I found for great PPC Managers? It wasn’t a…

If you’re a business owner, establishing a personal brand identity can also help you to build authority in your field and positively impact your business. Social media has revolutionized the model industry and has given a voice and a platform to the mostly random, anonymous, beautiful models. While the previous generation of supermodels—Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, Cindy Crawford—managed to launch successful sideline careers after their peak modeling days, savvy models now are preparing for the…

    Google controls the online world. The company’s global search market penetration is nearly 60 percent, so when the search giant speaks it’s natural that marketers listen—especially when Google announces sweeping changes to its mobile SEO rankings system as it just did. Beginning April 21, Google will start ranking websites optimized for mobile users, partly via responsive web design, higher than sites it deems as unfriendly to mobile users. A majority of digital media consumption and local web searches occurs via smartphones and tablets. Between August 2013 and August 2014, mobile web…

    Mark Zuckerberg took the stage at Facebook’s annual F8 conference today to announce some of the big updates coming from Facebook in 2015. The big message was a plan to build, grow, and monetize apps. Zuckerberg kicked off his presentation by sharing how many of last year’s goals from F8 were achieved and surpassed, such as bug fixes and response time. This year Facebook has promised to continue to improve upon these goals by fixing over 90 percent of all bugs within 30 days and integrating a dashboard to monitor fix time. While nobody likes bugs, the main focus was on Facebook’s shift…

    As working web professionals, we’re faced with walking a tightrope of information and explanation everyday. Basically, what we do is technical by nature. But, it has very real ramifications in the daily lives of our (usually) non-technical clients. One of our core tasks in the studio, then, is attempting to clarify how the technical minutiae of the web can affect things like user experience, conversion rates and other things of value to our customers. In this spirit, then, of debabelizing the arcane language of the web, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the emerging…

    Whether you’re a small business owner or an in-house marketer, you’ve probably had the experience of managing the redesign of a corporate website or a smaller individual project. Depending on how those have gone for you, you might perhaps substitute another noun or sentence fragment for the word “experience.” “Challenging but gratifying” is one realistic description we’ve heard many times from new clients. “Nightmare” or “clusterf*ck” are, unfortunately, other descriptions we’ve heard more times than we would like.

    Over the years, we’ve made the decision to offer design services ‘pro bono’ to a select few non-profit clients. Usually, the circumstances behind our decision to take on work of this sort result from one of the following: We’re slow and have the time to offer our services for a charitable cause we support. The non-profit serves a membership with potential clients for us. A combination of the first two. Having made the decision to take on this sort of work a few times, here are some observations we’ve come to (sometimes, by way of a tough learning curve…)…

    Throughout my life, I’ve lived among fitness addicts. Many of my friends have been working out for decades; they’ve witnessed every trend come and go, from aerobics to Crossfit. ® A lot of them possess skill sets which rival those of people who train for a living. The other day, I was having coffee with one of these friends and he let me in on a training secret. He told me that, long ago he’d given up self-training. Instead, he relayed, he’s been paying a trainer three times a week for many, many years. “Why,” I asked, “would someone who has been training…

    I just finished reading an article about emerging layout standards in CSS which recently appeared in ‘A List Apart.‘ The article, written by the fellow who proposed CSS way back in 1994, details the development of new proposals within the CSS spec, which – if implemented — will allow for multi-column formatting (like a print periodical) and the flexible placement of images within layouts. After I finished reading the piece – which was well populated with code snippets – I couldn’t help but notice that the article dovetailed with one of the many issues that send me to my…

If you answered with anything else – maybe WordPress, Hootsuite, Buffer, or HubSpot – you might be making the classic mistake of confusing tools with solutions.

  • Why My Contact Form Is Not The Best Place to Pitch Me

    16 Mar 2015 | 4:30 am
    Here at Kayak, we have a pretty open stance about ethics when it comes to sales and marketing – we prefer an inbound, attraction-based approach where prospects seek us out based on our being helpful and valued. We’re simply not in the habit of thrusting ourselves into the faces of prospects. A side effect of that philosophy is that we tend to get really, really annoyed with people who try to take shortcuts when they’re attempting to earn our business. Which brings me to a particular pet peeve: salespeople trying to solicit me through the contact forms on my website. I suspect I’m not…

    10 Mar 2015 | 5:00 am
    Imagine for a moment that we travelled back in time to the 1800s, into the dusty centre of an old Wild West town and transported the local snake oil salesman right off his wagon, forward into 2015. How hard would it be for him or her to adjust to the present day? Possibly not that challenging actually, for there’s still plenty of decent (though uninformed) businesses searching for SEO answers. Before I ruffle too many feathers, it’s important to point out that there are many SEOs who are doing great – and ethical – things for their clients when it comes to helping them be more visible…

    Recently, I found myself Googling for “big island real estate” as part of a new client project. Imagine my surprise when a trio of business listings appeared near the top of the page as local search results. Otherwise known as the Local Pack, this group of listings – presumably – is intended to display local (nearby) business listings. A quick peek at Google Maps – and a quick glance at fresh snow outside my office window – confirmed that we do not, in fact, have any Hawaii-based Realtors any closer than around 3,000 miles from my offices in Calgary.

  • Marketing Persona Lessons from a Simple Bag of Tea

    20 Feb 2015 | 4:30 am
    Sometimes, the most important lessons you can learn about online marketing – and indeed, dealing with people – aren’t the ones you get from blogs, surveys, or brainstorming sessions. In fact, I was recently reminded how important things like perspective and insight are from a simple cup of tea. It all started with a visit from my mother-in-law. Being Chinese-Vietnamese, her English is a bit broken (to be fair, though, it’s infinitely better than my Chinese or Vietnamese). That means two-way communication between us can get a little bit interesting at times. I asked if I could get her…

    This article was originally published on CareerCast. These days, it seems like every college grad expects his degree to be a ticket to the top of an organization. While Millennials feel they have a lot to contribute — and their enthusiasm is admirable — their lofty ideas are actually impairing them in the long run. Recently, I was taking a train back from New York City with three Yale students. While discussing upcoming job possibilities, two of the students said they had interviews with McKinsey in Dubai. They felt this opportunity would place them in a more prominent position than…
  • Native Advertising: Old Practice, New Name?

    This article was originally published on SteamFeed. Why don’t consumers trust native advertising? On the HBO talk show “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver,” Oliver said that native ads try to fool consumers by posing as editorial content. In the way he speaks about it, native advertising is a new fad that only exists in its current digital form. But little does he know, native advertising is only a new term for the digital age. Marketers have been trying to reach their target audiences with relevant, timely content for decades — namely in the form of affiliate marketing. When you…

    A reader asked me about writing a book, and getting it published. Her goal is to promote her coaching business; she hopes that her book will give her visibility. It can certainly do that, but if you’re writing a book for your business, you need to ensure that your goals match those of your publisher. Your goal: to promote your business. Your publisher’s goal: to sell lots of books. The bigger the publisher, the more books the company aims to sell. This means that you’ll need a good hook to gain a publisher’s interest. Celebrity books sell (some of them) because they have a…

And no, I’m not looking at WordPress when I say “too complex.” WordPress is perfect for what it does; it’s my favorite platform, but I’m not enraptured when it comes to usability. If you just want to write a quick post, it’s challenging. You know that you’re not going to be done and…

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…

    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,…

  • Facebook 101: Native Scheduling vs 3rd Party Apps

    Godot Media
    3 Feb 2015 | 8:40 pm
    Facebook lets you schedule posts up to six months in advance (this is called Native scheduling), so why all the fuss around third-party scheduling apps (like Swayy and DrumUp)? That’s because third-party apps come with several added features that you’ll find extremely useful as a social media marketer. What you can do on Facebook, and what you can’t If you’re scheduling posts natively on Facebook all you can do is set the date and time when you want your post to go public. You’ll still have to spend a considerable amount of time creating or curating the content…

    Can you think of a time when you made a purchase simply because you liked what you saw? Of course you can; we all can. Emotional appeal plays a significant role in influencing consumer behavior. The first step to creating a strong sense of brand attachment is to establish an emotional connect with your buyer. Ads with an emotional appeal work better An analysis of 1400 case studies submitted to the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising (IPA) found that ads with an emotional appeal were more effective than those with a rational appeal, as well as those that took a combined approach.

    On page SEO is the foundation stone on which your website must be constructed for better search engine ranking. On page and off page SEO are interdependent. If you do not have either one of them, your website’s chances of ranking high in search engines is meagre.

    Retargeting is one of the most exciting innovations in online marketing in recent years. It has consistently provided a higher ROI than other forms of targeting and is a vital part of almost any advertiser’s toolbox. If you don’t know where to start with retargeting, here’s a quick introduction. What is Retargeting? When a user visits a website, opens a promotional email, uses a search engine or almost any other action online, they are showing intent or interest in a topic. Many of these users don’t buy a product or service on the first interaction with an advertiser. Before…

Most notably, I’ve seen a lot of disconnect between clients and producers, who are at odds about how much it should cost, how the process should go, and how much time should be put into making a great video. And unfortunately, there are a lot of producers out there who will jack up the price of your video with add-ons that you don’t need if they see the opportunity.

    There are countless reasons why online video consumption is exploding. To name a few – people find video content more compelling than text,  remember visual content better, and video informs their purchase decisions.

Despite statistics show that this page on the website is probably the most visited one after the home page and maybe the Services page, very few websites contain a carefully worded ‘About Us’ page. The reason is not hard to guess. It is not, in the strictest sense, a page which clinches sales or converts leads into sales. But this part is only apparent.

On Twitter, it is the number of retweets that you get for your post. More retweets mean your post is visible on Twitter timelines that is beyond your own circle. It does a world of good to get retweets on your posts. It opens up new territories and therefore, the potential to expand exposure of your brand name.

That is because there are textbooks and archives to back claims and much is written about in the traditional sense. That is not the case for SEO. There are no century-old buildings housing departments to teach SEO. There are books and journals available in print and online but much of it is written from practice and experience.

A lead magnet is a valuable piece of content that a business offers in exchange for your email address.

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. These aren’t scholarly questions that get theoretically analyzed in MIT textbooks. These are practical nuts and bolts questions about how to get real marketing to really work – questions that…
  • Forget Setting Marketing Goals. Focus on This Instead.

    30 Jan 2015 | 7:11 am
    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…
  • Does Your Business Need a Lead Magnet?

    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…

To put it simply, the SEO technique that was perfectly acceptable yesterday may very well cost you a ranking penalty and loss of revenue tomorrow. In the ever-changing world of SEO, domain authority is one of the few constants that have survived the various algorithm updates, and it remains one of the most important factors that Google uses to determine…

    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.

    I have a confession to make. I haven’t always been as comfortable in my own skin as I might let on. For years I’ve been at odds with myself. Having spent over 20 years in sales and marketing, I’ve walked the line between my area of expertise and my moral compass. I love working in sales. 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. It’s the darker, greasier side of persuasion that often puts me at odds with my beloved field of expertise. The side I don’t…

    In the age of information, consumers rely on online reviews in order to make purchasing decisions. Healthcare decisions are no exception. 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.

We talked about why there’s been so much growth for native advertising – a digital ad strategy that promotes the brand by being embedded into its context.

Now however, the key to advertising success might be the complete opposite – blending in. One of the fastest growing trends and newest frontier in the online ad landscape is native advertising.

The search engine will now help mobile-friendly sites, as well as apps, rank higher in order to help users “get the most relevant and timely results”. This change is good news for mobile users as it should encourage sites that aren’t already mobile-friendly to finally jump on the moving bandwagon. This news comes after Google’s…

The first is because “…brand owners’ competitors and, more importantly, their customers are already there.” And second is that there are “new opportunities in the mobile world for brand owners to promote their brand and to nurture an affinity for it in the minds of their customers.” Recent data reports support these suggestions.

With the younger generation leaning away from the “retro” sites where their parents dwell (Facebook and Twitter), the more visually based apps and platforms are becoming hugely appealing. Launched back in 2011, Snapchat is already claiming over 100 million monthly (active) users and over 400 million ‘snaps’ sent daily.

High-paying customers stood in long lines to marvel over the new technology, buying the phones just so they could make a call without being connected to any sort of wire.

With a few years,  mobile phones were able to entertain, with games offered like handheld pinball machines, as well as become more useful, with … Continue reading…

So far, Google, the search engine giant, has been implementing the ruling only in sub-domains.

    Google has been doing a lot of tests on mobile. Really, it is a new world of usability and user experience that no one has 100% figured out yet. So you can expect a lot of innovation in the area. This week, Google started testing a feature for how they display their local Google My Business pages. Basically, it is a blue button with a down arrow. When you select it, it shows you more local results. You can see a picture of it here. I actually really like this feature. I think it is even easier than the swipe feature they were testing for mobile local. When you click the drop-down, you…

  • How to Find Duplicate Content on Your Website

    Barb Dittert
    31 Mar 2015 | 3:42 pm
    What is Duplicate Content? In terms of SEO, duplicate content refers to a piece of text on a web page that is exactly the same as, or very similar to text on another web page. Search engines don’t like duplicate content, plain and simple; and when Google flags a web page as “duplicate”, that specific page will likely suffer in the SERPs. In fact, if it’s difficult for a search engine to tell which page between two or more is the original source, all the offending pages may be considered duplicates. Common Types of Duplicate Content Search engines don’t like duplicate content,…

    25 Mar 2015 | 6:45 am
    One of the challenges of running a social media platform like Pinterest is the fact that people generate a lot of content. Deciding which pins to show, out of the thousands that could be shown, has a huge effect on the effectiveness of Pinterest marketing campaigns.

    When Facebook launched in 2004, it was lauded for its ability to connect brands with their followers for little or no cost. All you had to do was post content on your page, and everyone who liked your page would see it. Unfortunately for Facebook (and for users), this wasn’t an effective method of generating profit.

The organic reach of Facebook posts has been on the decline since its IPO. It now sits at a measly 6%, which leaves social media marketers, large…

From blogging, to forums, to social media, to email marketing, the entire online space thrives when users connect with one another. Blogging is no different, and experts like Gary Vaynerchuk and Seth Godin have been trying to tell us this for years. Here are five strategies you can…
