    Social media is an integral part of content marketing, and these days there is an array of options for social sharing that goes way beyond Facebook and Twitter. While those platforms are popular and highly useful, additional apps such as Medium (for blogging), Instagram (photo sharing), Pinterest (a sort of digital scrapbook) and SlideShare (for presentations) also have a role to play in effective content marketing. How To Best Use Social Media Since the year is just getting underway, I thought it would be interesting to check out the latest research on how to best use social media to…

    I have never talked about this publicly until yesterday when I presented on it at the Traffic and Conversion conference.  For most of the time it was out of selfish reasons as I didn’t want to “out” myself and burn down what I was doing… but that happened eventually cause I got a little greedy and pushed it too hard.  The good news is I have no doubt this would work for anyone for anything you’re doing.

  • Content: The Bridge for Uniting Sales and Marketing

    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…

    My Good friend Neil Patel over at Quick Sprout posted a great infographic explaining how to create a great sales video.  Creating a info/sales video that converts well is a delicate balencing act between giving information about your product and driving sales.  Also when its your own product a lot of times you focus on showing it off and all the information but forget the sales part. This is a great guide.  Check it out below.  Great stuff Neil!

    During a conversation last week with some clients and colleagues, we were talking about business benefits of a product – one of which was achieving “agility.”  It is a hot topic of conversation in business today across multiple functions — IT, Marketing, HR, and Finance. The approach, with its roots in software development, is gaining in popularity in a much broader context. But we felt like we were playing a bit of Jeopardy and our answer was not surprisingly in the form of a question – “what is agile?” And what does it really mean for our customers specifically? The…
  • Platform Sprawl: Growing Issue for Brand Publishers

    Kathy Baughman
    10 Feb 2015 | 12:27 am
    Content operations remain a hot button for marketers. One of the most vexing challenges facing CMOs today is platform proliferation which has led to technology overload and too many sources of data. The rise of content marketing has compounded the problem through the rapid introduction of new technology designed to streamline content operations. The unintended consequence is a more complex ecosystem whose nodes often conflict and make it more difficult to create, publish and manage content in an efficient and meaningful manner. Fighting marketing platform sprawl has CMOs working closely with…

    Conflicting goals for content marketing can create ineffective business results when audience needs do not come first. The pressure to produce new and relevant content can actually result in fewer ‘leads’ if the authors are not continuously working to address the ‘must-haves’ of their readers. Content creators have to be vigilant that their organization’s ultimate goals for improved ROI can be achieved by providing issue-specific and relevant information at the right time and place—and in the format preferred by the audience. Making this challenge even more daunting, content has…

Google is formalizing its stance on “mobile-friendliness” as a ranking signal worldwide. Not only that, but they’re boosting content from indexed apps in organic search results.

    It used to be that, when Google announced yet another tweak to their algorithm, I rubbed my hands with anticipation. Now, it just makes me tired. Yesterday, Google announced that mobile-readiness is now a worldwide ranking signal, and that indexable apps will influence personal search rankings. I should be excited. I’m just tired. Not because I’m over 40. Not because I’m annoyed at Google. I’m tired because I know that every SEO on the planet will now scramble to create a half-baked Android app, littered with links, an effort to rank. Somewhere at Google, some…

    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. We’ve had tales as long we’ve had language; further, we’ve had them as long as we’ve had visual imagery, as the magnificent Paleolithic cave paintings of Europe and the [...] Why Brand Storytelling Works is a post from: Omar Kattan - MD & CSO at Sandstorm Digital FZE The post Why Brand Storytelling Works appeared first on Omar Kattan - MD & CSO at Sandstorm Digital FZE.

  • Making hotels interactive with iBeacons

    Joshua Meehan
    26 Feb 2015 | 4:49 pm
    iBeacons are gaining momentum in the technology word, but they have tremendous value to the hospitality industry. iBeacons are a small communication device that, with the user’s permission, uses Bluetooth technology to trigger activities, launch websites, play videos or offer coupons and information on a traveler’s smartphone. With a little imagination and the right infrastructure, a hotel using iBeacons can transform itself into an interactive property that tech savvy travelers will love. iBeacons work off the users proximity and can be programed to do a variety of things.
  • The Fight Against the OTAs starts at Check In

    Joshua Meehan
    20 Feb 2015 | 5:12 pm
    In any industry, a lack of competition can come with a decline in innovation and an increase in price. Without a larger field of competitor there is nothing to incentivize OTAs to keep commission rates low or introduce new products and services to the market. With only two major players left in the OTA space, Expedia and Priceline can make and play by their own rules. Their almost complete dominance of this space can make it extremely difficult for new players to enter the field and remain competitive. They can’t outspend these giants for ad space, so gaining attention and acquiring…

    At the beginning of every new year, there are always new trends to look out for and new opportunities to increase revenue. Just in the year of 2014 alone we experienced a rise from the usage of desktop devices to non-desktop devices (cellphones, tablets, etc). According to, 38% of web visitors and almost 40% of the page views were generated from non-desktop devices alone last year. In comparison to 2012 where less than 17% web visitors and 14% of page views were generated from a non-desktop device. With such a huge increase in just several years, this essentially means that…
  • Boost Revenue by Selling the Time Between Reservations

    Joshua Meehan
    13 Feb 2015 | 12:01 pm
    For most hotels, cutting all ties with the OTAs isn’t feasible. Their reservations make up a sizable portion of a hotel’s business mix and without them many properties wouldn’t stay open. Coming off the heels of their Travelocity acquisition in January, Expedia has purchased Orbitz for an estimated $1.3 Billion. This essentially leaves two major players in the OTA field, Expedia and Priceline/ In the last two months Expedia has gone from controlling around 30% of the market to over 70%. With only two major OTAs players left in the game, far too much power is taken…

    As the new year rolled around, many hotel internet marketing companies featured webinars discussing new strategies that hotels should be implementing for 2015. Of all these new trends mentioned, one of the most necessary themes was that of content marketing and the importance of consistently telling your hotel’s story to the traveler consumer.

    Online reputation management (ORM) is an important aspect in the online marketing arena. While it is used to improve a business’s or a person’s reputation on the World Wide Web, ORM carries a negative connotation to some professionals and business owners. That is because it is sometimes wrongly equated with posting fake consumer reviews on various popular websites, including social networks. In reality, the proper practice of ORM does not rely on fake reviews, but on positive content, genuine consumer feedback, and sharing via social media. Having ORM performed on a business may also…

    Through their website, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are able to compete with larger corporations that are equipped with bigger marketing budgets. It’s no surprise that SMB owners ranked “website” as their top digital marketing solution. They also think it’s more effective than email and social media. With owners putting this much value on their website, it’s normal to think that they are also investing heavily on site troubleshooting, maintenance, and optimisation… or so we thought.

Most of us wouldn’t dream of going for extended periods of time running on old, dirty oil, or with a filter that needed changing ages ago. So why isn’t the same true of your website? 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 often surprises me when I ask email marketers, “How is your campaign going?” and they answer with something similar to “Very well! Our open rate is 30%, which is above the industry average by 10 percentage points.” I cringe. Not because the open rate isn’t important, but because using it as your key primary indicator (KPI) often misleads your email marketing campaigns. What’s wrong with the open rate metric? It’s not 100% reliable, to say the least. The open rate is counted when a small 1×1 pixel image is loaded by the subscriber’s email client. A preview pane in…

The reason I knew their business was that I had spent 25 years in it prior to starting my company (the professional services industry, specifically management consulting.) Since I stumbled onto that lesson, I've focused my sales…

  • How Does Content Marketing Really Get You Sales?

    Chris Green
    26 Feb 2015 | 7:41 am
    First of all, I need to make the following disclaimer. Content marketing is not magic. You don’t pop up a blog post or two and the sales start flooding in. You don’t create one or two videos and suddenly you’re the talk of the internet. It requires hard work. It requires you going beyond the efforts of your competition. Still with me? Good, we lost a few people just then, hopefully your competition… Right, lets get stuck in. What Exactly is Content Marketing? Just to make sure we’re talking about the same thing, we would define content marketing like this:…

    Content, content, content. I waffle on about it all the time. Done a blog post? Great, post it elsewhere but you know what, it’s all too difficult. Well, it’s just got a bit easier… When you’ve just written a blog post, not many people are going to read it straight away, so you want to get it in front of people’s noses. One way is to email it to everyone, but another way is to post it somewhere else a little more popular than your website.

  • How To Post Your Instagram Pictures Directly to Twitter

    Andy Calloway
    23 Jan 2015 | 5:28 am
    Instagram, Twitter and Facebook have had a bit of a love-hate relationship over the years. Facebook owns Instagram and yet as much as they try, people will still use Twitter. Instagram allows you to post an image to your timeline and at the same time share it with Facebook and Twitter. However, the two don’t play nicely and instead of the image being visible in your timeline, there’s just a link to Instagram. This has put people off integrating the two, so here’s how to get past that little problem! Why Is It Important? Images are proven to get better engagement than text…

    See that website over there? The one that’s higher up in the ranking than yours? How’s that so? How come they’re getting all the gravy? We’d all like our websites to be number one for something, but more likely than not, some other site is sitting there and we don’t know why. Thing is, Google knows why and for many years now we’ve understood that Google isn’t a magic box that reads people’s thoughts. If a site is above ours in the ranking then it’s there for a reason and everyone is telling us that the reason should be transparent. So how’s it happening then? Luckily,…

    27 Feb 2015 | 8:32 am
    As more and more of our daily activities and interactions occur online, PR firms are abandoning the notion of separate online and offline marketing channels in favor of integrated marketing solutions that embrace both. While television, newspapers, and various forms of printed media are still viable tools of public relations professionals, they are no longer the primary sources of information and entertainment for consumers in this country. Consumers now turn to online searches and internet news resources when they seek information, and rely on blogs, social media posts and streaming content…

    According to a recent Google blog post, on April 21 Google will start using mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal for websites to make it easier for users to get relevant, high quality search results optimized for their mobile devices. If you don’t have a mobile website, or your website is a few years or more old, it’s probably not.

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

    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…)…

    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…
  • Why you may have paid too little for your shiny new website…

    David Hitt
    13 Jul 2014 | 10:31 am
    Like all developers, new work for us usually comes as the result of our successfully winning a ‘request for proposal’ or, in less formal circumstances, submitting a proposal in response to a work request we receive via an in-person meeting or over the phone. Regardless of the means through which we’ve learned of the new work, though, our response is always the same. We begin by attempting to understand all the concerns or requirements of the job. We then ask ourselves whether the scope aligns with what we’ve learned over the years in designing similar sites for similar…
  • Managing Essential Digital Assets: The Five Deadly Sins to Avoid

    David Hitt
    15 Jan 2014 | 1:52 pm
    As a working web professional, I often find myself stressing minutiae to our clients at the expense of fundamentals. It’s a mistake we all make, I think, from time to time. My personal conceit is forgetting that skills and concepts which are basic to my daily work life would be boring for me to elaborate on with our clients. After all, they became routine to me a long time ago so they surely couldn’t be of interest or use to anyone else, right? Then I get a call from a former client that went something like this… Client: “Hey, yeah, I think you guys designed our website for us a…

  • What You Need to Know about Local Search Results

    4 Mar 2015 | 4:30 am
    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. I might have written the…
  • 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…
  • Will Colour Choice Affect Your Website Visitor Experience?

    17 Feb 2015 | 5:00 am
    Colour is a part of everything we do. From selecting our clothing for the day, to picking out the vehicle we choose to drive, colour makes a continuous impression on us each and every day, but does it have any impact at all on the websites we choose to visit, and if so, why? The following is a special guest post by Amy Wax, a colour consultant (and creator of the award winning Color 911 app) from New Jersey who regularly surfaces in my Google Plus stream. Feel free to reach out to her directly. Her links and bio can be found at the end of this post. With intros out of the way, let's take a…

    I had the great fortune of writing and posting some of my best articles around online marketing ideas over on Social Media Today last year as one of their Best Thinkers. In case you missed my articles there, here is a roundup of a few of my favs, in no particular order: Are You Breeding Clones, Copycats, and the Occasional Inspiration? When you begin from a position of true innovation, it doesn't really matter what you used as a starting point – even if it was someone else's breakthrough – because your end goal is different. That shows you are thinking in different directions, which lays…
  • Slave-Free Since Always: No Unpaid Marketing Interns

    3 Feb 2015 | 4:30 am
    One thing you’ll notice if you stop in to see us at Kayak, is that our team is quiet eclectic. From young people to industry vets, we run the gamut. What you won't see though, are unpaid marketing interns. A marketing and ad agency staple since the stone age, bringing on interns each spring has been a way to vet prospective hires skills, check their knowledge, and assess their team-fit – all quite well and fine – at virtually no risk to the business. And that's where my issue with the practice surfaces. I'm pretty much against the concept of slave labour. Are Unpaid Internships Good for…

  • Four Elements Your Business Needs to Be Sustainable

    Robert Glazer
    4 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    This article was originally published on Dell for Entrepreneurs. As consumers, it’s easy to assume that the brands we consistently rely on have a strong foundation that’s built to last. But for many companies, that’s just not the case. One-hit wonders litter the business landscape. Robert Croak, the man behind Silly Bandz, came up with the animal-shaped bracelet concept after a visit to a supplier in China. As the bands grew in popularity, his company released new themes to boost their collectability. But logistics problems and copycat companies forced Croak’s business to invest in…

    3 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    Consumers want not only the convenience and accessibility of online shopping, they also want a seamless transition between all their shopping experiences – both online and offline. And, of course, they want to get a good deal when they make a purchase. Unfortunately, many retailers miss prime opportunities to connect with shoppers because they only invest in online advertisers to drive online sales, and offline advertising to drive offline sales. The concept of using online budgets to drive offline sales is not always understood or implemented correctly. But the winds are shifting.
  • It’s Best to Avoid Link Building, Just Ask Google

    Sarah Johnson
    26 Feb 2015 | 6:00 am
    Google finally came out and said it: link building is bad. Of course, they were a little more politic than that. The company is famous for obfuscating when it comes to questions about their search algorithm. And can you really blame them? It is, after all, their secret sauce. Last week, however, we got as definitive an answer as we ever have on whether or not to pursue link building. During a Google+ hangout, Google’s webmaster trends analyst John Mueller said sites would be better off avoiding link building altogether. One of the participants asked Mueller, “Is link building in any way…
  • How Inaccurate Attribution Can Hurt Your Affiliate Program

    This article was originally published in Internet Retailer. A shopper may research several sources and see a number of ads before purchasing online, and retailers struggle to attribute sales accurately to marketing channels. Doing it badly can reward the wrong programs or affiliates. But there are ways to do it well. When a soccer team scores a goal, which player deserves the credit? Of course, the easiest answer is the player who kicked the ball past the goalie, but it might not be the most accurate answer. After all, scoring isn’t the only statistic that matters.

  • Writing a Book for Your Business: Hooks

    Angela Booth
    6 Feb 2015 | 7:49 pm
    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…

    Who needs another blogging platform? No one, if you believe that current platforms are perfect. After 15 years of blogging, and after trying just about every platform — I know that no platform is PERFECT. Each and every platform is either too simple (not enough functionality) or too complex. 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…

  • Sponsored Content: Ads That Get Read

    Angela Booth
    13 Jan 2015 | 7:59 pm
    If you’re not doing content marketing yet, you’re thinking about it. This study reports that 86% of North American B2B businesses are using content marketing in 2015. Sponsored content, also called “native advertising” is a form of content advertising. In a sense it’s the successor to old-style magazine advertorials. But where advertorials — I’ve written more than a few in my time — plugged the advertiser’s product, sponsored content doesn’t. It’s going for the click, and aims to look innocuous, to blend in to its surroundings. That’s where the “native” comes…

  • 9 Simple Ways to Get NO Blog Comments

    Pragati Bidkar
    25 Feb 2015 | 1:00 am
    Pragati Bidkar, Blog Comments are huge! We all know that. They mean someone is standing in your store, OK, your virtual store. Remember what Charlie Trumper preached? People don’t want to enter an empty store. The moment a reader sees comments on a post, they probably head there first. No Comments means your post is not that popular. It doesn’t mean its not good! I should know that, because I have many good posts that have no comments. Comments affect many technical things like MOZ rank, Alexa rank, Google rankings etc. Ultimately it affects where you land on the…

    Dave Landry

    Dave Landry, Email marketing campaigns can be a beast to master. As anyone that has ever deployed an email campaign knows, it’s easy for an email to be filtered into a junk mail folder, destined to be deleted without being read. That’s a scary prospect for any business that is spending valuable time, resources and money on email marketing. So, how can companies and marketing teams avoid this fate?

    Pragati Bidkar, My earliest understanding of the parallax concept came from sunglasses. Yes! As a teen, I was totally fascinated by sunglasses. They seemed so chic and grown up. Checking out sunglasses from street sellers was a favorite thing to do while hanging out with friends. Raybans they weren’t. And very frequently they skewed the world view. Some smart kid said this was ‘parallax’ and it became a buzz word amongst smart alecs. So every time we checked out a fancy pair of shades, someone perked up, ‘Have you checked it for parallax?”.

That’s because third-party apps come with several added features that you’ll find extremely useful as a social media marketer.

You have a sales page that describes the e-book and people can click a button to purchase it. Did you know that for a typical set-up and an e-book that sells for $9.95, you keep 93% of that price?

    25 Jan 2015 | 9:16 am
    You probably have an opt-in form on your website. If not, you should! You need an opt-in form to add to your email subscribers. Most online marketers that I know in the United States use a double opt-in procedure. When website visitors fill out the opt-in form, they get an email with a link to confirm their email address. Most bulk email programs use double opt-in by default. But is double opt-in a good idea? Well, this is a controversial topic. Let’s look at the pros and cons of double opt-in.

The consensus will significantly alter the way the Internet is structured, and therefore hold great impact for any business and end-user on the web. Net neutrality means that all online data should be treated the same. This may seem quite vague, but it basically entails that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and governments can’t discriminate traffic based on user, platform, or content.

    Why did my aunt join Facebook and why does she always post listicles and click-bait from BuzzFeed? Are her emotional triggers just that easy to pull? It’s because she makes up just one of the millions of blips that ‘LIKE’ BuzzFeed on Facebook. It’s because she’s part of their target audience.

  • 4 algorithmic changes Google should implement

    Valentin Boulan
    2 Mar 2015 | 2:04 am
    Google’s algorithm is a very complex combination of on-site and off-site parameters. As SEOs, we’re fascinated with how Google determines ranking, and every tiny change or perceived change get a huge amount of coverage within the industry.

I recently signed up to test and give feedback on Google’s alpha version of their new Search Queries report, and I was one of a delicate few Webmasters selected to try out the new report. The current Search Queries report will most likely be replaced with the Search Impact report. When released to the public, the Search Impact report will be located in the Search Traffic section in Google Webmaster Tools. The new report will…

    Having an appealing website also means have inviting graphics or images. I do a lot of WordPress training workshops and one of the most often requests is for free image editing software. Most of the people attending my workshops are not designers nor do they want to be; they are simply wanting to learn how to manage their own website. And for this reason, they don’t want to invest in expensive image editing software knowing that it will not be used that often.

    You’ve finally decided to act on that idea you’ve been mulling over for months, and started your own start-up. Maybe you’re still in your best friends’ garage, or maybe you’ve moved on, and you’ve bought your own office space, or factory, or manufacturing company. Whatever it is, your idea is new, solid and out there to change things. And you know it. But in spite of all the energy you’ve thrown into this new company, it just isn’t getting the sort of coverage you hoped for, even after you spent a lot of time – and money – building an…
  • Mobile Design for the Modern Business

    Ivan Serrano
    21 Jan 2015 | 7:15 am
    When the mobile phone was first developed back in the late 1980’s, it was the size of a brick and weighed about as much; it was the invention of the century, or decade, at least. 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. The invention spread like wildfire – and developed just as fast. 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…

    Apply Pay has been a big topic of discussion recently. Apple is taking a crack at the mobile payment market in hopes of faring better than Google and their Android system. The technology that is used to make mobile payments work is called NFC (Near-field communication) and it’s been around for a while now with Android phone. Even though most people viewed it as really cool, it wasn’t widely used. There’s quite a bit of speculation as to why people didn’t use it, but security seemed to be at the top of the list.

  • Have a Small Business Idea? Here’s Some Considerations

    Tammy Hawk-Bridges
    19 Feb 2015 | 6:38 am
    One of the worst things you can do? Create a business with absolutely no foundation other than it seems like a cool idea. When I left corporate America and entered into the world of entrepreneurship I thought that being a smart business woman gave me a leg up. Boy, was I stupid! I had a very cool idea, all my friends and family said so! But I did no research on my market. I didn’t know who my buyer was, and what’s worse I couldn’t reach enough of them to support my business. So guess what? 13 months, tons of lost time, tons of lost money, lots of tears later – big…

    Tammy Hawk-Bridges
    11 Feb 2015 | 7:05 pm
    If you want to grow your reach and make more money in your business the process by which you make that happen is called marketing. 1 million new micro businesses start up every year (A micro business is made up of 1 or 2 people.). 80% of those 1 million businesses won’t break 50K in annual revenue (Notice I didn’t say profit- I said revenue). Why? There are lots of reasons but in many cases marketing is the missing piece. They’re too small minded about their business. (Sorry, I’m not trying to be mean here, just honest :-).) Small Mind = Small Profits Most people will get…
  • Entrepreneur Education – Declutter To Make More Money in Your Business

    Tammy Hawk-Bridges

    You know what’s really cool about what I do? I get to tell people how to make more money. If they have a valid business idea, I can tell them how to build a process to bridge the gaps and be more profitable. Given the right person that’s willing to roll up their sleeves and get really serious, I can succeed every time. However, one of the things I learned first as a sales trainer back in my corporate days that still holds true today in my life as an entrepreneur mentor is that people who are messy and unorganized will struggle. You cannot build profitability in chaos. When I was a…

    One of the questions I get asked a lot is, “How did you grow your consulting business so fast?” I never mind answering this question because it’s one of my favorite things to talk about! After my first business failed and I lost a ton of money I learned the error of my ways before going into business number two. I made two major mistakes that caused my demise: I didn’t understand marketing. I didn’t have a strategy or plan. I just worked hard all day long hustling with no purpose. So when I went into my next endeavor I prepared to not only play a very serious…

While it’s true that some brands have great success on Google+, most marketers struggle to get their G+ campaigns off the ground. It’s often hard to find, let alone engage, your audience on G+. In fact, Forbes has gone as far as to call G+ a “ghost town”. But if you do locate your target audience and create engaging content that people want to share, G+ can take your social media and content marketing efforts to the next level. We may not like G+, but it’s an absolutely…

  • Why Doesn’t My Audience See My Facebook Post?

    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. 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…

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…

    Creating emails that are brimming with compelling content and engaging visuals is essential to a successful email marketing campaign.

According to the BBC News channel, some industry insiders feel that this is not a positive move by Firefox, with Google holding 67% of US desktop searches and a whopping 90% of all searches made…

In my opinion, no matter the number of tools and platforms available the core of the marketing strategy remains the same. Raise awareness, stay in front of potential customers, retain purchasing customers, gather more referrals and measure your results. It’s easy.

Strangely enough this is one of the keys to success online and mostly everything in life. Consider this. Procrastination is all about your mind making up excuses or giving you urges in order for you not to take action on a task. What are these excuses and urges? They are basically itches. If you scratch the itch you are giving up to the urges and excuses. You are making the decision to procrastinate whether consciously or not. Most of the bad things in…

    Saying hello is easy. A new subscriber comes on board, is highly engaged with your emails, and as a result is boosting your deliverability rating. Over the customers’ lifecycle, the enthusiasm to open every email wanes and engagement rates dip. You send out a thoughtful and creative reengagement campaign, and then you follow up with a winback campaign to the remaining non-responders. In the end, you’re left with a whittled-down list of inactive subscribers, and a burning question: Now what?!
