    My writing journal for Friday, October 24, 2014. You can find all the writing journal entries here. The mystery novel went well, as usual, with 2,200 words. Then on to the two nonfiction books, with 1,800 words. Honey’s breakfast, and my own, while catching up with email. It’s predicted to be warm today, with showers later, so I left for my walk. As soon as I got back, I caught up with client phone calls and messages. Friday’s my day to update clients on their projects’ progress. Next, I analyzed traffic, and brainstormed content for clients’ websites and blogs. This afternoon,…
  • How to Leverage New Media & User Experience in Your Digital Marketing

    Digital Marketing Blog
    20 Oct 2014 | 1:20 pm
    Since the launch of the Kindle back in 2007, the publishing industry has changed forever. The explosive growth of ebooks has been ongoing and in 2011 digital books outsold print for the first time on Amazon. Although outside of this online marketplace, paperbacks and hardcovers are still outselling their electronic counterparts, this is still a strong indicator of a rapidly growing trend that demands our attention. Given our modern technology, practically everyone has a smartphone, tablet or other marketing, social media marketing, user experience
  • How to Choose WordPress Hosting

    Ekcetera Marketing and Design
    Kelly Garrett
    17 Oct 2014 | 10:20 am
    So you want a WordPress website? Now it’s time to buy a domain and hosting. Your domain is like the address on your house, and hosting is the lot that contains the house. It’s the physical space where your website files sit on a physical server that’s connected to the internet 24/7. By purchasing hosting service, you’re essentially renting space on these machines along with a staff of people to monitor the machines, make repairs, support customers, and assure the servers are running and connected to the internet as much as possible. Now that we’ve got those…

  • Elements of Association Content Strategy

    Colleen Nolan
    31 Oct 2014 | 1:57 am
    Content, content everywhere but not a strategy in sight! OK, maybe content would not have made it into the final draft of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, but the sentiment is true.  Associations produce incredible amounts of content. And much of it is high quality, thoughtful and relevant.  But it is often hard to find and is surrounded by other outdated and off-topic content that muddy the waters.  For associations interested in spending less energy and resources to produce content that aligns with your member’s needs, content strategy is a must. The following are the seven essential…
  • Content Delivers Value to Associations

    Colleen Nolan
    29 Oct 2014 | 1:37 am
    Earlier this week I announced that ComBlu had published a new eBook: Taming the Content Vortex.  The eBook was developed to help associations overcome some of the barriers to adopting a content strategy. While it has only been a few days, already the feedback on the eBook has been very positive. We are hearing from association content developers and even executive directors that content is important, but that it is difficult to get the Board and staff to rally behind content strategy. But fear not! I’m here to help. For those of you in charge of coming up with the answer to: “Why should…
  • Content Strategy is Vital to Associations

    Colleen Nolan
    27 Oct 2014 | 10:51 am
    Association managers have a pretty tough job. Not only do they have to run a business, but they are also running a membership organization. Sometimes the different sides of the association have different goals and objectives which can create a swirl on deadlines, obligations and stakeholders. With so much going on you might think: Who can afford to also focus on content strategy? The truth is you can’t afford not to. For associations, content strategy is not another thing you have to do on top of your current job – it’s something you can use to be successful in the areas that matter…
  • The Maturity Model for Brand Publishing

    Kathy Baughman
    20 Oct 2014 | 8:58 am
    While many organizations are still in the early stages of brand publishing, many others have scaled their programs and are monetizing their investment in content. The steps between these extremes present a maturity model for brand publishing. Several models exist for content marketing maturity models that essentially define four phases: chaos, tactical, strategic and monetization. Most, however, offer little insight into the core competencies required at each phase. ComBlu recently researched content maturity models and extrapolated information from multiple sources and augmented these…
  • Don’t Confuse Content Marketing and Thought Leadership

    Kevin Lynch
    13 Oct 2014 | 9:36 am
    The tsunami of social platforms and networks for sharing content has greatly expanded the opportunity for “thought leaders” to spread their gospel. But has this proliferation of information provided clarity or is it simply more noise than substance? I believe the jury is still out. Confusion over the difference between thought leadership and content marketing is part of the problem. Too often the terms are used synonymously. Although similar, they have distinct roles in the content ecosystem. True thought leadership needs to take the long view on topics and issues.  It’s typically not…

    If you’ve worked in the world of the internet at any point in the past few years, there is a good chance you’ve heard of the hot new technology that is HTML5, and there is a similarly good chance that what you’ve heard is largely hype and buzzwords.

  • Google to Localize Call Extensions. Hurrah?

    Timothy Johnson
    21 Oct 2014 | 8:30 am
    Starting in early November, Google will allow advertisers to use local area codes in their call extensions that utilize Google forwarding numbers.  Previously, you had two options: use your own number and lose the ability to track calls in AdWords, or use an (866) forwarding number randomly assigned to your ads. With this new feature, local advertisers will get the added benefit of call tracking while keeping the friendly feel of a local area code number in the search results. How do I set it up? Easy! Google will automatically transition all eligible local phone numbers where available.

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

    Greg Collier
    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?

    Greg Collier
    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…
  • The Boss Always Answers to Someone – Even in Professional Sports

    Greg Collier
    6 May 2014 | 6:37 am
    I sometimes hear people say, with a tone of envy in their voices, about how great it must be to own a company, to be the boss, to call all the shots and not have to answer to anyone. Those perceptions of what life as the boss is like – especially that last one about not having to answer to anyone – are kind of funny to me, largely because, at some point, we all answer to someone. As the owner of a small business, I’m the one who makes the business decisions for Geebo. But in reality, I’m far from being the one who calls the shots. The customers – whether they’re the…
  • Risky Business: Watch for Business Models that Boost the Bottom Line but Tarnish the Reputation

    Greg Collier
    14 Apr 2014 | 12:30 pm
    There’s an interesting debate going on in San Francisco with Airbnb, where a crackdown on short-term rentals – especially those being advertised on online sites like Airbnb – are leading to lease violations and eviction notices. The site, Airbnb, connects people looking to make a few bucks by renting out space in their own homes with visitors who are looking to save a few bucks by using alternative accommodations when they pop into a city for a short visit. It’s kind of like they’re hotel rooms, except that they’re not. They’re residential homes and apartments. And in…

No one sees my offers!” Think about it. You know Facebook has become a “pay to play” network for businesses. You own and run and business.

Apple isn’t the first company to incorporate NFC into their phones, companies have been doing it since 2006.

    When using Twitter for your hotel, a good rule of thumb is to share other users’ content along with your own content.

    It comes as no surprise that for many businesses, Yelp has become one of the leading referral sources generating the most traffic to your business’ website. There are over 138 million monthly visits to Yelp worldwide and 500,000 reported calls everyday. These statistics goes to show how powerful Yelp can be for a business, big or small in generating a sale or/and lead.

    With all the constant changes in online marketing, it can be difficult to keep up. Trends are constantly shifting, and your marketing approach needs to do the same. A recent study from Software Advice, a company that reviews hotel management tools, shows that almost 60% of travelers watch online videos about their destination. Of the travelers surveyed, 50% of them preferred to watch these videos on the hotel’s website and away from traditional sites like YouTube or Instagram. This shift in trip planning is a unique opportunity for hotels to attract more direct bookings. So what kind…

    Brian Massey, The Conversion Scientist
    29 Oct 2014 | 5:59 am
    It’s like a virus on the web: Rotating Headers, also called “Sliders”. Designers recommend them. Content Management Systems provide widgets to implement them. And everyone is copying their competitors, which makes them spread. Those of us that test websites know one thing: We can almost always get a higher conversion rate with a static image then with rotating header images. Why Sliders Hurt Conversion There are two primary reasons that sliding header images hurt conversion. 1. Load Times It takes a long time to load each image. Header images are generally large.

And no one knows better about the element of risk than the social media powerhouse and munchy-machine, Taco Bell. The fast food giant made a super bold move yesterday in an attempt to grab the attention of their hungry millennial clientele.

And we know Yahoo’s got an eye for fun. I mean, come on, she’s got an exclamation point in her logo! Could it be Bing? Hmm… Whoever it is should have made sure the site of the party was designed properly; nothing deters visitors and party-goers like a 404. Seriously scary stuff.

    31 Oct 2014 | 9:13 am
    What is a good click-through rate, anyways? Simple answer: There is no simple answer.  Don't let this metric scare you today! Let’s cover some vocabulary first. 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…

    So you want a WordPress website? Now it’s time to buy a domain and hosting. Your domain is like the address on your house, and hosting is the lot that contains the house. It’s the physical space where your website files sit on a physical server that’s connected to the internet 24/7. By purchasing hosting service, you’re essentially renting space on these machines along with a staff of people to monitor the machines, make repairs, support customers, and assure the servers are running and connected to the internet as much as possible.

Your domain is your address, or the house numbers on the front of your house. Hosting is the location where your house sits. You need to have a domain to tell the world where your website lives. You need to have hosting to house the actual website. They are not one in the same and you must have both.  Whether you’re hiring someone to create your website, or doing it yourself, it’s usually a good idea to get your domain yourself. At least be…

The people who matter to me and the business I work for just aren’t there, for the most part. That’s Robert Scoble weighing in on Facebook’s superiority over Google+ in a fascinating discussion on social media expert Joel Comm’s Facebook page.

    Do you remember Google Wave? It was supposed to be the search giant’s real time messaging platform, a way for people to stay in touch easily and all the time. Or something like that. No one was ever quite sure what it was for or what it was supposed to do. It launched in May 2009 and in August 2010, Google announced that Wave was no longer being developed. It might have been the privacy snafus that killed it, but it might also have been the lack of clarity, the complex features and the general lack of demand. Even big companies make mistakes. Even firms with as clear an understanding of…

    A company that produces content about cars recently launched a new product. Not surprisingly, it also created a new Facebook page. The company’s original product is very successful. It has plenty of readers, strong advertising and a talented team that understands the topic and knows what its audience wants to see. Its Facebook page has about a quarter of a million followers. The page is updated several times a day using both original content as well as content shared from other pages in the same field. Mostly it shows pictures of fast cars. Those posts typically win a reach of about 20…

    6 Oct 2014 | 11:12 am
    One neat little trick on Facebook’s pages is the “Pages to Watch” feature. You can see how well other pages are doing in comparison to your own. You’ll see the total number of page likes, the number of new page likes since the previous week, the number of posts they’ve made recently and the amount of engagement those posts have generated. It can be a pretty galling experience. You might think that your battles against Edgerank are the same as everyone else’s, which your low reach and minimal engagement are a result of Facebook pushing harder for page owners to pay for boosts.

    In general, it’s a good idea to steer clear of any strategy that looks like it should be wearing a black hat. But there’s one method being used on Facebook that’s highly effective, is helping businesses, is making money for the owners of Facebook pages — and Facebook, so far at least, is choosing to ignore it. The strategy is a little trick that makes use of video content, by far the most effective form of content on Facebook.

  • 3 Pro Tips for Improving Inbound Leads

    28 Oct 2014 | 4:00 am
    If you ask any SMB business manager if they need more leads to hit their goals, they will invariably say yes. But are all leads the same? For must businesses, the answer to that question is no. If I'm targeting companies in the IT infrastructure business, a lead from the retail sector isn't worth much to me. If my targeted buyer is a CFO, a lead that is a product manager probably isn't worth much to me. What that SMB business manager is really saying is, "I need more qualified leads to hit my goals." If her company can improve the quality of their leads, they can actually hit their goals with…

But how exactly have Oreo and a handful of other brands since this epic tweet made such a splash with real-time tactics? MWW’s Alissa Blate shed some light on how to effectively do real-time PR and marketing in a recent webinar. Here are some of the top takeaways from her presentation. Missed her presentation?

  • 5 Essentials for Practicing PR in Real-Time

    Erin Feldman
    24 Oct 2014 | 4:45 am
    News happens fast, seemingly more so when you work in PR. You not only have to monitor the news but also respond to it with relevant, timely stories. You have to practice your PR in real-time. It’s a daunting task, but these five essentials can help turn it from impossible to possible. 1. Data Any real-time initiative is steeped in data. Data, such as the figures obtained with social monitoring tools, show you what’s happening in the here and now. You can assess what’s popular. You can tell when audience perception shifts for good or ill and respond accordingly. In addition, you can…

  • Our Digital Marketing Heals the Sick and Saves Lives

    Derek Denholm
    8 Oct 2014 | 3:31 pm
    OK, technically, we can’t connect a particular tweet or blog post with someone who got out of hospital with a clean bill of health. Still, our marketing efforts have helped Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation raise hundreds of thousands of dollars over the course of many big community events. That money helps purchase hospital equipment used to treat thousands of patients in the community hospital serving the Tri-Cities area in Vancouver’s Lower Mainland. We started volunteering with the ERHF a while back because we believe in giving back. Soon after we started working with them, it became…
  • 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…

Like most entrepreneurs, I often wish I had a bit more time to meet smart movers and shakers and learn new tricks at events like this.

    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…

    Smart use of social media networks like Facebook and Twitter enhances your local search strategy in three important ways: It captures leads. Social media takes your message to places where thousands of prospective customers are already congregating. Take Facebook, for example. Millions of members have volunteered tons of psychographic data to Facebook, as well as left a digital track showing what pages, ads and other links they’ve clicked on in the past. This means that Facebook can target users not just by basic demographic data (although that information is useful), but by their…

    Once you’ve said what you want to say about your business in online listings, you need to turn your attention to what others are saying. Most often these ‘others’ are customers who review your company’s products and services on sites such as Yelp, Home Advisor, Judy’s Book, Trip Advisor and Google+ Local. Some sites — Open Table, Zagat and Urban Spoon, for instance — review only a single type of business, in this case, restaurants. Free vs. Fee Some sites are free and others, notably Angie’s List, charge a fee to join. Usually the fee is assessed on consumers, not on business…

Part one can be found here. BRAND PERCEPTION Brand perception is different from brand engagement.

This is an important point of distinction for brands to make. While awareness of a…

  • Why Showing Beats Telling in Social Media

    28 Oct 2014 | 4:00 am
    Recently, I shared a strikingly simple but elegant concept I picked up from Social Shake-Up in Atlanta, Human-to-Human or (H2H) communication from Bryan Kramer. Today, I’d like to give you another that really stuck out in my mind: showing beats telling. This is something a lot of us have heard before in our lives, starting with grammar school lessons on description and continuing through our careers as business marketers. Today, though, it’s especially relevant because of that big topic – authenticity – that is becoming so important in the way we communicate with our connections and…
  • Are You Outsourcing The Social Aspects of Your New Business Efforts?

    25 Oct 2014 | 4:00 am
    One of the more common sentiments shared at Social Shake-Up in Atlanta – and a personal cause of mine – was the advice not to outsource your social media and customer relations communications to a third party. In other words, don’t ask your agency to do the talking for you. As skilled as social organization may be, we really shouldn’t be doing it for you. Why? Because the relationships you have with your prospects are important. In fact, those relationships are what will keep your business in business for years to come. Having a finger on the pulse of your most important buyers, and…

    Sometimes, you come across a marketing concept so simple and effective you wonder why everyone didn’t think of it ages and ages ago. I know I’m certainly not the only person who’s gotten that impression from Bryan Kramer, who spoke at Social Shake-Up in Atlanta. Bryan argues that traditional marketing categories (like business-to-business and business-to-consumer) are not only misleading, but actually problematic. They get it all wrong because communication – and especially communicating via social media – isn’t about the traditional B2B channels or B2C synergy… it’s about…
  • Is This What the Collaborative Economy Looks Like?

    14 Oct 2014 | 4:00 am
    The Collaborative Economy – a keynote at Social Shake-Up with Jeremiah Owyang – left an unexpected impression on me that’s had me thinking for weeks. Jeremiah’s idea isn’t complicated: that people and businesses are getting together to fund, share, and promote new ways of doing things, and that’s changing the way businesses and industries work. The longer-term implications are less straightforward, though... For example, how many of us could have predicted the rise of crowd-funding, where long lists of small donors fund and launch projects that might not…

While reading level is always a consideration, I’ll be the first to admit it’s something I don’t focus on too heavily, in favour of fluidity and authentic thought flow. That may be changing, though, thanks to a presentation I watched at Social Shake-Up by Ira Haberman of Atomic Reach. His company offers software that can help you analyze the reading level of your content and how well it matches the level of the visitors who are coming to your…

    This article originally appeared in Under30CEO. If you don’t have kids of your own, you probably know as much about working parents as you do about different brands of diaper cream — not a lot. Conventional wisdom may tell you that employees with children may not be as productive or reliable as those without. After all, kids get sick, parents have to pick them up from school, and employees with small children in the home aren’t going to be too happy to take your late-night phone calls. But this attitude fails to take into account all the extra skills a parent picks up raising a family.

Over and over again we heard how e-commerce sites are tired of trying to game the system. There’s been a major sea change in digital marketing over the last few years. As the industry matures, digital channels are no longer seen as separate silos. They’re being integrated into overall strategy with a renewed focus on brand integrity.

    If you’ve been to a major conference recently, chances are you’ve been scanned. Most conference badges now come equipped with QR codes that allow attendees with smartphones to scan your badge and capture your contact information. This often happens when you have a discussion with someone at a booth or in exchange for a giveaway. Other people may ask to scan you if you just look their way as they try to fill their ‘scan quota.’ Technology has changed marketing dramatically over the last twenty years and now it’s even changing the way we interact in person.

As valuable as onboarding is to revenue and growth, off-boarding is equally important to product iteration.

Below we offer up five signs that your marketing is ready for an upgrade. 1. Stock photos have taken over your campaigns, and you aren’t using them ironically. Stock photos have their place, but that place is usually contained within a video showcasing ridiculous stock photography. Of course, not every image you…
  • Hello, Ello! There's a New Social Network In Town

    10 Oct 2014 | 8:08 am made a splash when it launched in beta last week, describing itself as the only social network dedicated to “beauty, simplicity and transparency.” The site promises an ad-free user experience and minimal, anonymous data collection via Google Analytics. Social giants Facebook and Twitter have come under fire for targeted advertising, manipulative practices, and deceptive privacy policies, making Ello an appealing option for users who prefer to do their socializing without sponsors. If the new network is able to attract a mass exodus of users from other platforms, it’s likely to…

Now with this, those who have been previously penalized by Panda will have an opportunity to emerge and rank provided they possess content of…

    30 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    If you own or manage an independent brick and mortar business, chances are you’re facing stiff competition from one or more of the large multiple-location chain stores. These are the “big dogs” that are frequently able to out-maneuver you with a larger advertising budget. Trying to compete head-on against these competitors is usually a futile gesture that is doomed to fail from the start. To successfully level the playing field and claim your fair share of the consumer’s dollar, you need to maximize your visibility in the local search results. Why Google+ Local is a Must An estimated…

    A business persona is a carefully cultivated representation of the image, personality, values, and reputation that marketers want their company to be associated with. For example, IBM is seen as the dorky all-business type with no sense of humor, and Twitter is the cool kid that everyone wants to be like. Your persona is the embodiment of your brand philosophy and unique selling proposition, and represents the public face of your company. It reflects the values that you bring to the marketplace and helps answer the basic question of why someone should choose your company over one of your…
  • Will Bigger Smartphone Screens Impact Paid Search?

    Jeff Brewer
    28 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    Despite the fact that smartphones are gradually replacing the desktop as the preferred method of accessing the Internet, mobile device conversions continue to lag behind those of desktops by a considerable margin. A recent RKG Digital Marketing Report found that the smartphone revenue per click (RPC) is 66 percent lower than for desktops, mainly due to lower overall conversion rates for smartphones. Even when cross-device conversions are factored in, smartphone RPC is still 63 percent below desktops; a cross-device conversion occurs when a search is initiated on one device such as a…

    Warning: This is controversial! I’ve been around for a long time and remember life before Panda. What’s that? Panda was a change in Google’s search results algorithms that was rolled out in February, 2011, with follow-ups after that. The purpose was to reduce the rank of “spammy,” low quality websites so that people who searched for content would be more likely to get useful content. The results was that many article directories such as no longer appeared in searches. This is also my personal experience. Before Panda, when I did searches, I…

      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.

    Why You Should Use Solo Ads ==>Check Out Udimi Here<== Whilst we can probably all agree on the one hand that Solo Ads can be extremely profitable when they’re facilitated by a good Solo Ad Network, we know too that VERY few Solo Ad Networks really live up to our expectations, unfortunately. Finding people on these networks is usually pretty easy, but, you don’t know whether you’re dealing with an honest seller, an honest buyer, or just a fly by night operation whose primary motive is just to make a quick buck, and get out of there ASAP. So, security is probably the…

    3 Sep 2014 | 3:55 am
    How to Get Your Email into The Inbox Many people have been saying that email marketing is “dead”, but with a look at some statistics from 2014, it becomes obvious that email continues to be one of the most effective marketing tools available. In fact, it’s said that 95% of consumers use email, and 91% of users check their inbox at least once a day. So I would say that in itself is a pretty good argument as to why you should use email marketing in your business. However, just because a lot of people are using email every day, doesn’t mean it’s becoming easier to get your message…

    How to Fail the Right Way One of the main reasons why people who try to make money online end up failing is because they are scared stiff of the concept of failing. Failure is this big ugly word that they would rather not hear. It’s a concept they want to run away from; it’s a concept that makes them sick to the pits of their stomach.   If this is how you respond to the concept of failure, I have some sad news to tell you: you are responding like 90% of other people out there.

Moreover, if you see an increase in sales or referrals, the source of the referrals would be virtually impossible to identify. With any campaign, it is also important to measure your results to know how your efforts have fared. Was your campaign successful – did it achieve the…

Long before a prospective follower decides to be-friend your company page on Facebook, they are more likely to follow your Twitter feed, or at least, be part of a re-tweet chain.

I’m sure like the rest of us you look at hundreds of websites in a given week, some of which you frequent regularly, and others you pass over as you move around the internet. The great thing about the internet is you can still come across websites that look like they were designed in 1997 (and probably were).

Peyton, being the ultimate competitor that he is, was not happy about this – as he was on the field, trying to make plays. The noise lead to a false start, but more importantly, it lead to some intense shaming of the scoreboard operator: “I have no problem with our fans. Our fans are great.
