    Does it ever seem like you have more adversity in your life than other people do? As if everyone around you is having an easier time of things than you are? You begin to feel sorry for yourself and think, “Why does this stuff always happen to ME?” It seems as if even though you continue to endure punch after punch and still keep your feet under you – life always has another crushing body blow in store for you. Every time you take yet another beating, persevere and turn a corner… someone is waiting around that corner ready to crack you over the head again with a sock full of…

    You have probably seen on many large & successful websites using a recommend posts type widget at the bottom and sidebar of pages. Things with images like “Recommended Reading” or “You might also be interested in” sections. I have tried various ones over the last 10 years and none of them really did a good job of matching content for our niche-focused websites. The other day when I was browsing around…like I always do…I came across Yarpp. First of all, Yarpp stands for Yet Another Related Posts Plugin, which I think is hilarious that they can poke fun at themselves like that.

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…

  • Content Journey—the Road Less Taken

    Kevin Lynch

    Robert Frost has intrigued generations with his epic but brief poem about choosing your path in life. Let’s use his poetic insights as a corollary for creating a viable content journey for B2B marketers. In any content journey, the customer is hero. The story of his content experience depends largely on that hero’s mission, pain points and needs. It’s also influenced by the cast of characters (personas) with whom he interacts along the way. The question becomes: Does the content he encounters help guide his journey to a successful end? According to CMI research, 42% of marketers…

    If you are like me, you are waiting for someone you know to send you an Ello invitation. Why? Ello, for lack of a more eloquent description, is an ad-free Facebook. No ads at its launch – or ever. All of this is explained to current and potential users in the Ello manifesto. A quick read indicates that this is not your typical social site. Ello was created in April 2014 by a group of artists and designers specifically to display large images beautifully in a closed social network. The network is in beta testing and membership is invite-only. Each Ello user receives five invites to send to…

    Pam Flores

    At a get together at a good friend’s recently, I was quite amused at the cocktail napkins that she passed out to all her guests. They read, “Let’s bring back the days when social networking was a cocktail party.” As a dental hygienist, social media does not really have a strong role in her job. She works in a business where face-to-face interaction rules supreme, whereas for me “social” has many layers. But, my friend’s napkins made me really think about one of the main functions I perform at ComBlu – media relations. Social media has undoubtedly transformed the discipline…

    It is that magical time of year again that brings us all together. I am not referring to the joys of the holiday season, however. I am talking about the joys of strategic planning for next year! If the following represents you (or someone you work with), then keep reading. Or, if you are just looking for some practical guidance on persona building, read on as well. Content strategy is hard. We intuitively know at a high-level what needs to be done, but often getting there can be a challenge. Many teams and stakeholders are still not on the same page; the good news is that they are trying.

  • 8 Free Keyword Research Tools for PPC Advertising

    Erica Opsvig
    2 Dec 2014 | 9:22 am
    Whether it’s SEO or PPC advertising, search engine marketing campaigns should begin with keyword research. This research is arguably the most important task for the foundation of all SEM efforts. It not only gives marketers insight into the mind of their audience, but helps bridge the gap between potential customers and the products or services they are looking to buy. Although keyword research is vital to both SEO and PPC, there are differences between the two. With PPC, you’re essentially bidding on keywords in an auction and paying every time someone clicks your ad.  Your ads…

K Cars: Bask in the awesome The Rockstar Method has its place with major brands, pure luck and the well-connected. Mere mortals like you and me, though, need allies, not rockstars.

    Storytelling is an ancient human occupation. There’s not a culture on Earth without its rich share of myths and legends—and its tawdry gossip and scary stories.

  • The Art of Overbooking

    Joshua Meehan
    17 Dec 2014 | 4:48 pm
    One thing all hoteliers have in common is the desire to sell rooms. All of their marketing efforts are aimed at putting heads in beds and growing their revenue because room nights are a perishable commodity- every unoccupied room is revenue that cannot be made back. Even with enough reservations to fill a hotel, there are always last-minute cancellations or no-shows. Because of this it’s common practice for hotels to purposefully oversell on busy nights. Of course this may prove to be risky if everyone shows up, but playing these odds can be profitable. It’s important for a hotelier or…

    With the abandonment of the Google Carousel and the recent introduction of the local 3-pack, hotel marketers are encouraged to re-evaluate their local marketing strategy to align with these changes in Google’s search landscape. The local 3-pack is now evident in search base results within the United States and may soon take into effect around the world. The new search engine result layout poses a significant impact on your hotel’s local marketing strategy and ranking capabilities. Hoteliers need to be aware of these changes and take proactive measures to ensure maximum exposure and…

    Joshua Meehan
    10 Dec 2014 | 4:59 pm
    Hoteliers operating smaller properties often don’t have the support they need to spend time developing a proper promotional strategy. Because of this, many hotels constantly run the same promotions or a “Manager’s Special.” But how special are these deals if they run 365 days a year? Time sensitive promotions help to keep a hotel current and can provide fresh content for their website and social media channels. Seeing an expiration date helps to build value in the promotion and can build a sense of urgency, encouraging guests to book before the deal ends. A good promotion needs to…

  • The Value of Discounting

    Joshua Meehan
    3 Dec 2014 | 5:12 pm
    A recent study by The University of Minnesota took a look at how shoppers perceive discounts and Value Added items when shopping. The study found that shoppers prefer to get more for their money than to receive a flat discount. But when presented with both options they will often choose the discount. That sounds contradictory, doesn’t it? The reason they choose the flat discount is simple, they aren’t doing the math. When presented with multiple discounts and offers, shoppers will take the easy option, even if they aren’t saving as much. When only presented with the Value…

    What is the last thing you want your visitors to see when checking out? This, maybe? This is the wrong page to see in a checkout during the holidays. This is the page we found when we clicked a button that is very important to a Fry’s Electronics, named “In-store Pickup”. It is the button visitors use to check out if they want to pick something up at one of Fry’s stores. The In-store Pickup button in the lower right generated the error. This is one of the most important buttons on the site, doubly so near Christmas when shipping gifts becomes an iffy proposition. Fry’s…

That’s right, we’re talking about Google. Google is like that close relative who’s always on your mind but is just impossible to buy for.

Impressions: the number of times your ad is shown Clicks: when someone clicks on your ad, AdWords counts that as a click. A click is still counted even if a user does not reach your website (ex: your site went down for a couple of minutes). Click-Through Rate (CTR): The number of clicks received divided by the number of impressions received, multiplied by 100. For example, an ad that is shown 2,000 and receives 20 clicks has a…

Granted, most websites don’t cost the same amount of money as a shiny new BMW, but if your website is the backbone of your business marketing (as most are), or a direct revenue producer, the cost of running it into the ground can end up massive.

It’s the physical space where your website files sit on a physical server that’s connected to the internet 24/7.

  • Digital PR. Killing the Old Media Gatekeepers Softly

    Derek Denholm
    1 Oct 2014 | 11:02 am
    If the dawn of the Internet age gave newspaper editors a headache, the ubiquity of smartphones and mobile devices is giving them a guillotine-worthy sore neck. The cull continues this week, with major newsprint entity Transcontinental throwing 20 more newspaper operations onto the funeral pyre. For marketers, this is the end of an era for traditional PR, where pitching the editors, or old media gatekeepers, was all that mattered. These days, it’s much harder to justify a media spend on print (and to a lesser extent, radio and television); you’re promised exposure to 100,000 or 200,000 or…

  • The One Big Problem With Large National Websites

    Toby
    30 Nov 2014 | 2:12 pm
    One of the biggest problems with conversion for large national multi-location business websites (e.g. franchises) has to do with consumer usability and global menus that lead customers away from local contact information. Site usability is poor as a result and consumers get lost easily once on the website and it becomes difficult for the customer to find local contact information – this greatly inhibits lead generation and sales. One of the biggest problems for large national websites that have many locations throughout the country is decreased conversion optimization efforts due to…

    Google likes to keep us SEOs and digital marketing professionals on our toes and they did a really good job in 2014. Here is a short summary of the SEO changes Google rolled out this year. Pigeon and Penguin In July, Google introduced the new Pigeon algorithm: a local search device that takes location services into account when making searches. For local businesses and sites, this development is hugely important to getting traffic that you want from the places that you want them to come from. This algorithm is largely useful to smaller businesses working on a small scale, but can cause some…

    While there are many ways to make money on your website, few of them involve complete control over the product you are selling. You can make great money through affiliate programs or advertising in the short term. But that money might disappear next month or next year.

To date, I’ve spent less time on LinkedIn to focus on Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+. LinkedIn is perfect for professional networking, so I’ll be more active there going forward.

Don’t rely wholly on this attribute, but you’ll often find that your content on Google+ happily outranks your content elsewhere. That said, Google+ can be confusing, because of the way it does things. For example, it’s not immediately obvious how you send someone a personal message, directly to them, that only they will see. If you’re new to Google+ here’s how to send someone a private message in…

For webmasters, determining where their own websites rank in Google search results in the age of personalized search is muddier than ever.

In addition, the redesign needed to provide ease of navigation and clear calls-to-action in order to…

  • 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…

    jess

    In a series of events that culminated in Sony’s cancellation of the highly anticipated Christmas release of “The Interview,” data was breeched, terroristic threats were made, and theaters quickly backed down from their plans to release the film as scheduled next week. Were our lives truly at risk, or has Sony taken viral marketing to the next level by turning a mediocre Seth Rogen/James Franco flick into a must-see for freedom-loving Americans? There’s ample information to support both sides, but if you’re looking for evidence that indicates marketing – rather than terrorism –…

    How does the government find vendors? How does anyone find anything these days? We Google – and so does our government! While federal agencies continue to look at GSA  Schedules (and others) to find contractors, that only accounts for about 10% of all federal procurement spending. That means 90% is being sourced elsewhere, and the nation’s most popular search engine is a top resource. The bidding process is difficult enough for vendors to navigate, but your contracting or consulting firm won’t even be considered if it can’t be found. Government contractors need both an impressively…

    In our last article, we discussed all of the major components of on-site search optimization, starting with behind-the-scenes meta data and moving into each part of the visible page content (headers, text, and images). Because so many different factors go into advanced content optimization for each piece of writing that gets published on a site, we decided to break that out as a separate article. The way SEO professionals currently handle content optimization requires a very specific mindset. We begin by asking ourselves a very basic question: What is this page about? In order to succeed, we…

While semantic technology is designed to draw its own conclusions as to the intent of the search engine user, it still uses your root keyword as the starting point for interpreting the contextual meaning of the terms entered into the search query box. Hummingbird doesn’t eliminate the need for proper keywords, it just searches beyond the keywords…

    Ellen Finkelstein
    30 Nov 2014 | 1:31 pm
    Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of setting up your site for more traffic. You do this by helping search engines, such as Google and Bing, to find your website when people search for topics that you cover. The search engines have LOTS of rules, called algorithms, that determine which sites appear when a person searches. The algorithms are a secret, but Google and Bing do offer guidelines and  analysts have figured out numerous principles, just by observing what happens. The more you know about these rules, the better you can apply them to get more traffic for your website.

We all waste some time and it’s good to take breaks — and to have fun. But you still need to be careful or you’ll find that some days go by without accomplishing anything significant. Types of…

New features have been introduced, such as a messaging feature, and the newly released Snapcash option.

  • Why Retailers Should Stop Copying Amazon.com

    Claire Vignon
    9 Dec 2014 | 11:00 am
    Amazon.com is a popular reference in the e-commerce industry, and for a good reason. Amazon tests every change on its site and never settles for anything less than high converting design and UX. I love Amazon for driving awareness and curiosity around A/B testing. However, I’m sometimes frustrated when Amazon lures my clients into thinking that everything it does should be implemented on their own website. A few days ago, a client of WiderFunnel’s wanted to increase the size of the cart in their header. Why? Because Amazon does it. It might be a valid hypothesis. If there is one…

Here is how Chris defined mobile optimization during his presentation: A lot of people think mobile is the difference between a desktop and a phone. Some people – if you are really advanced – are looking at tablets. This is not the reality. This is not mobile. The reality is there is an infinite number of devices now, and infinite number of screen sizes and iterations. And, they are changing all the time.

But first, let’s take a step back: what is ESR and how is it the most effective website redesign strategy? It’s no secret that the traditional website redesign process is broken. Many a well-meaning…

It’s the same type of philosophy you can apply to virtually anything, including your own job.

    Google seems to be giving the gift that keeps on giving this year with a new form of “continually optimized” Penguin update. In the past, Google worked on Penguin algorithms offline and then published the updated data live on a specific date.

    Several years ago I fell flat on my face in a business. It failed mainly because I didn’t understand marketing, more specifically Internet marketing. It also failed because I didn’t have a plan or a process in my business. (Perhaps I  should mention that making money wasn’t a choice for me, it was that or lose my house.) Because I didn’t understand marketing and didn’t have the right knowledge I couldn’t reach enough people to purchase my products and services.

  • Complacency is Cancer

    Tammy Hawk-Bridges
    9 Jul 2014 | 6:24 pm
    Take a moment of self-reflection. How do you take in information? Do you absorb it? Do you read it and think to yourself that you need to do it? Then a few seconds later the dog barks and you need to take him out – then the thought is lost? Do you revisit it? Do you just move on? The entrepreneur that thrives in today’s world is the one that admits they’re guilty of being complacent and creates systems in their business (and lives) to defuse it.  They know that the key to growing a business is having the appropriate steps in place to avoid falling into complacency.

Just be sure to put script tags around the javascript and style tags around the CSS. The code placed in this box is defined after wp_head which means that all linked scripts and styles should appear above it. This code will override any linked CSS above it. If CSS is placed inline, then you will have to change it at the source or override it with custom javascript.

    We know what it takes to define a brand. Whether it is defined from the beginning or not, every business has a mission. It starts with an idea, from a founder or group of founders, and they set off to bring their vision to life. If their vision involves products, the mission might involve innovation or value. If they’re branding a service, their mission could involve user experience or dependability. Even if it takes time to put it into words, there is a natural attitude that forms around a business that goes into their mission and values and with a little focused effort you can start…

    Vincent Nguyen

    “What’s the ROI of your mother?” That’s Gary Vaynerchuk’s response when he was continuously asked about the ROI of social media.

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. Facebook held its initial public offering (IPO) in May of 2012, and a few short months later, organic reach tanked by up to 80%. 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…
  • Forget About SEO and Start Focusing on Creating Great Content

    Nolan Wilson
    22 Nov 2014 | 2:07 pm
    Every time Google releases an update to its algorithm, it shifts the focus a little more to improving user experience. But there’s only so much a spider can tell about how a real person will experience a webpage – it’s hard to make conclusions about how someone feels when all you understand is numbers, like time spent on page, bounce rate, and link juice. That’s why content is so important. In fact, it’s the most important aspect of your SEO strategy (and I’m not just saying that because I’m a content writer). User experience essentially boils down to how much a visitor enjoys…

    As a small business owner, you probably don’t have a lot of free time, and the last thing you want to do is add another task to your to-do list.

    Starting a blog can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. Here are a few simple tips for beginners. Write About What You Know If you know a lot about food but have never fixed a car in your life, don’t write about car repair. This may seem fairly obvious, but a lot of bloggers write about what interests them (and that’s fine, if you’re educated on what interests you), and as a result their opinions are ill-informed and often simply incorrect. When you write about what you know, you will come across as an authority on the subject. Google specifically rewards three things when it…

    There’s a new marketing term in town and it is sweeping across the nation as we speak. Spelled either omni channel, omnichannel or hyphenated as omni-channel, while the battle for the grammar is still being waged, the meaning of the term is clear. Omni means universal or all. Unlike multichannel which means many, or cross channel which means across channel, this is a clearly defined proposition unlike what has come before it. Omnichannel marketing is about creating a marketing message which transcends the boundaries of user’s experience whether through online, in store or mobile.

  • Facebook Ditches Bing to Develop its Own Proprietary Search Tech

    Gyles Seward
    16 Dec 2014 | 7:17 am
    Rather suddenly over the last few days, Facebook has removed the ability to see Bing results within a Facebook search. This has been dropped in favour of using its own search technology and just bringing results from within the Facebook ecosystem. Presumably this helps to keep eyes on the website and therefore on the adverts too. Perhaps Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t see the need for other results. He’s previously bragged about getting “1 billion queries a day and we’re not even trying.”. There are other reports suggesting he thinks Facebook searching could supersede web searches one day.

Google claimed that they were closing the service in response to this as it isn’t monetised. The latest development in this spat is that AEDE, the anti-Google lobby group that represents Spanish publishers, now wants to stop Google News leaving Spain.
