    It’s hard to ignore the importance of social media marketing in today’s marketplace. It’s the number one place where your customers and prospects choose to spend their time.

No matter what niche or industry you operate in, you need to be active in social media if your brand’s messages are going to have any chance of being heard. Social media offers you the opportunity to engage in relationship-building…

    This is a post that has been in my drafts for over a year and it’s been drastically altered many times. It is something I should actually write a book about because I am so passionate about it and I feel it’s the true secret to success.  I could easily write 60,000 words about it and that is on my list of things to do… someday… Until then you can read my autobiography here =). Many times in your life you have heard people say “Why Me?”. Usually, every time I have seen this is when someone contracts a horrible disease, is going through crazy times, or has…

    Recently I got my monthly reminder to send the monthly recap as December came to a close. But it’s the 1st of January so then I thought, well maybe I should do a year review. But it’s actually much bigger than that. My Google Adsense check, otherwise known as THE Check, was issued September of 2005.  Yup. I started making my first dollar 10 years ago this year.  My Adwords account was created January 15th 2005.   I remember the first time I made a dollar in a day. I was so excited to show my wife. It evolved slowly and didn’t do much for a bit.  I actually took it off if…
  • YARPP is legit

    18 Dec 2014 | 7:00 am
    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.

    Many firms in the highly commoditized financial services industry struggle with the same thing: how to build awareness and credibility for their expertise, and truly differentiate themselves from other players in the space. After all, one company’s money is as green as the next, right? One way financial service firms can achieve true differentiation is by developing and publishing value-added thought leadership content that offers information clients can really use across multiple channels and formats on an ongoing basis.

    My favorite reads of 2015 have been around the technological advances depicted in Back to the Future II. I firmly believed that when I walked out of that movie theater in 1989 I would be riding a hoverboard today. Even though we are not ready for flying cars, there are some interesting trends to note. Last fall Get Satisfaction released a market industry report on online community trends.

    6 Jan 2015 | 11:18 am
    When I started to think about what content stood out for me in 2014, it was all about the visual.  I’m not alone.  Most people (65-85% according to Trend Reports) consider themselves ‘visual learners, forming meaning and organizing thoughts based on what they see more so than what they read.’ Not surprising, stats abound on how image-centric content boosts engagement and e-commerce.  It also explains the explosive growth of social networks like Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr and social app, Snapchat. So with that, here are a few standouts and what we can learn from their ability to…

  • The Keys to Long Tail Keywords

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

    Do you remember when the words “Marketing” and “Measurable” were rarely found in the same sentence? (Unless “not” also made an appearance in that sentence) If you think of marketing as an immeasurable process that money is thrown at hoping to see some sort of ROI, then I have good news! You are mistaken! There is a better way to do marketing! It is called Inbound Marketing. STEP BACK: Now, let us go back for a moment. If immeasurable marketing is what you think of, you are probably thinking of outbound marketing, or the act of sending a message outward…

    Anybody who’s been in this business for a while knows their ABCs: Acquisition Behavior Conversion It’s built into Google Analytics, for God’s sake: And it’s a tried and true methodology for measuring. Problem is, we’re measuring to take action. If the lifecycle begins and ends with acquisition and conversion, we’re missing a lot of workflow steps as marketers. Every campaign needs planning and post-mortem phases. That’s the real job — not the numbers, but what we did to attain those numbers and what we’re going to do in the future to beat those numbers.

John Cusack in 2012, fleeing the mighty wrath of the Pacific Ocean as it gleefully swallows California into its watery maw?* Here in the Pacific Northwest,  mentioning “seismic activity” brings back memories of the 2011 NFL playoffs, and a run that not only remains one of the best plays in Seahawk history, but also as the seismic event by which all other seismic events in the area are measured by.

Instead the best stories agree with what the audience already believes and makes [them] feel smart and secure when reminded how right they were in the first place.” Back in September, Starbucks rolled out its first global brand campaign via YouTube called “Meet Me at Starbucks”.

    Sometimes, the only way to understand a site is to look deep into the technology stack and gaze upon its dark, dark soul. But we at Portent try to avoid contact with evil beings. Instead, we use force-directed diagrams. I got my nerd on big-time and whipped up a few examples: A healthy site thriving in its native environment A sad, lonely home page, stuck out in the wilderness Duplicate content invading and driving out native species Pagination tunnels as they whip to and fro in the tides A site relaunch that nearly gave me a heart attack A web site as it explodes, spawning sub-sub-sub-sub…

It said, “Which raindrop caused the flood?” My teacher never referenced it once during the duration of the course. However, ten weeks later, it all made sense. What is this IMC you speak about? There are a few definitions for Integrated Marketing Communications, but my favorite is from the Northwestern School of Journalism: “IMC is a strategic marketing process specifically designed to ensure that all messaging and communications strategies are…

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

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

    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?

    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…

    Joshua Meehan
    28 Jan 2015 | 4:44 pm
    Recently the FCC has put their foot down on the fight over WiFi Blocking in hotels. They have ruled that commercial establishments cannot restrict consumers from using their personal Wi-Fi hotspots. With how important internet access is for travelers these days, hotels caught doing this are subject not only to fines, but also open themselves up to negative reviews and a tarnished public image. So why run this risk in the first place? For those properties that are still charging for WiFi, guests bringing their own access could diminish a revenue stream, but how many reservations are they…

    A recent article posted on HotelSpeak highlighted Shrine Hotel’s new strategy for keeping potential guests on their website. They are experimenting with displaying their rates with the OTA offerings. The idea behind displaying this information is that it will keep the guest from leaving the site to compare OTA prices. Provided the property has rate parity most guests will choose to book direct. If successful, this strategy could help reduce a property’s OTA contributions. But, in the ongoing fight against commissions, are ideas like this enough? The real power of the OTAs comes from their…

    For a lot of travelers, after a guest checks in they may not have an interaction with the hotel staff until they check out. This could potentially lead to the guest’s expectations to go unmet and may result in negative reviews or requests for reimbursement. To help combat this, Expedia is launching a new Real Time Feedback system for their hotel partners. This system will reach out to guests who book through the OTA after they have checked into their hotel and verify that they are satisfied with their accommodations. Thankfully any hotelier can implement this simple idea and improve their…

  • Concentrating Solar Power Systems

    15 Jan 2015 | 8:43 pm
    If you have ever seen a field with several mirrors pointing toward the sun you may be looking at a solar power system. These systems work to concentrate the sunlight to one area and use the heat to heat up the liquid that flows along the pipes. This system is called Parabolic-trough system. This type of system heats oil that is flowing through the pipe. The oil is hot and that is why it is used to boil water to power a steam generator which in turns powers electricity. The reason that this system works so well is because the U-shaped mirrors attracts and collects the suns heat which is then…
  • Solar Energy – The Future of Generating Energy for the Home

    5 Jan 2015 | 2:46 am
    Solar energy for residential houses is nothing new. It has just been relegated to the background in lieu of rising cost of real estate; newer more advanced building materials, design and the limitation of resources. Since man started building homes, sunlight played a major influence in the design. In fact, even in the more advanced urban planning method of the Ancient Chinese and Greeks, the orientation of the buildings is as much as possible directed towards where it could capture the most sunlight. The ancients might not be as intellectually sophisticated then to use catch phrases as…

    I am a huge fan of TrackMaven. Their competitive intelligence software for digital marketers is as good as it gets and they consistently produce some of the best data-based content marketing research available. They recently published a new eBook called The Content Marketing Paradox: Is More Content Really Better? It's a must-read for content marketers.

  • A Breakdown Of The Social Media Sales Funnel

    21 Jan 2015 | 8:53 am
    In the past, businesses just needed to place advertisements on TV and magazines to convert people into customers. Today traditional ads are no longer the best way to reach people as 92 percent of consumers trust peer recommendations and word-of-mouth over all other forms of advertising. The rise of social media and the Internet in general has affected the way businesses and consumers interact with each other. Gone is the traditional sales funnel that led people on a linear path to becoming paying customers. Instead, it is now replaced with a social sales funnel that accounts for the more…

Most of the people I work with are CEOs of technology companies and professional services firms - they expect to see results fast. That shouldn't be surprising. They wouldn't be where they were if they didn't push hard for results. But the reality of content marketing is that it takes a long time to achieve overnight success. You can't publish a few blog posts and see an immediate increase in site visits and leads. But if you are consistent in producing high quality content that…

    Andy Calloway

    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…

The reason for this is that you need to inform your audience of news and information going on in your marketplace, and to be frank, you might not be the best source for that information.

  • Content as a Service (CaaS) in 2015

    Bernadette Coleman
    22 Jan 2015 | 2:00 am
    You may have heard of SaaS, software as a service. The term refers to a newer way for software vendors to offer their products to consumers. Rather than sell software that the consumer installs on his or her computer hard drive, SaaS provides software over the Internet for a subscription fee rather than a hefty, one-time price. This has two big advantages over software that is resident on an individual computer hard drive: the consumer buys only the level of service that he needs and maintenance of the software becomes the vendor’s responsibility, not the customer’s. It’s a much more…

    Not long ago, I shared my opinion that marketers were being overly worried about duplicate content, specifically for sharing their articles and posts in a variety of places. This belief is based on two different details: first, that Google realizes there are common and legitimate reasons for duplicate content to exist (even for ethical marketers who aren’t trying to game the system), and second, that the search engine optimization benefits of posting fresh content are really a secondary business goal. Our first goal should be to attract interest and build credibility; having Google crawl…

  • Are You Paying Your Ad Agency a Percentage of Spend? You’re Smarter Than That.

    Sarah Johnson
    27 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    The goal of advertising is ultimately for a business to make money, right? If a company pays its marketing agency based on percentage of spend, however, they could be doing quite the opposite. The number of marketers who assume that paying a percentage of spend is just “how it is” is shocking. Here’s why: the agency a company pays is also trying to make more money for their own company. If they’re paid based on percentage of spend, there’s financial incentive for them to continue spending more and more on campaigns. There’s a common explanation amongst…

  • 3 Tips To Make Your Business Blog Work

    Angela Booth
    20 Jan 2015 | 1:24 pm
    Is your business blog making your company look bad? I’ve been working with a content marketing client, who asked me to look at business blogs across a range of industries, and create a report. Yesterday, we looked at content marketing mistakes and how to fix them in a slide deck. Today, let’s look at some easy tips to make your blog work for your business. Some companies do a fantastic job of integrating their blog with their overall marketing. They get it. A blog isn’t an obligation, or something “for the search engines”. It’s a publication. Consider blogging to be instant…
  • Simple Content Marketing: 4 Tips for Success

    Angela Booth
    19 Jan 2015 | 1:22 pm
    Hate writing? Me too, at times, even though it’s what I do. Whenever I don’t want to write, I check to see if I have a plan for what I want to accomplish with that piece of writing. Usually, that’s the problem: I don’t have a plan which is easy to execute. Similarly, when my content marketing clients have challenges, the first thing we look at is their plan. CMI created a good one page content marketing strategy plan you can check out. Create your objectives, goals, and strategies, then create your plans for your content. With your plans in place, let’s look at some tips for…
  • 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…
  • Productivity in 2015: Save Your Sanity

    Angela Booth
    11 Jan 2015 | 7:58 pm
    We’re barely two weeks into 2015, and if you’re anything like me, you’re exhausted already. I just realized that I spent the entire working day being hugely productive. But I didn’t do my most important task. Productivity isn’t easy. You can be immensely productive, doing things that while important, aren’t essential. My solution: My 1-3-5 List I LOVE my bullet journal, but its tasks exist as lists, and it’s all too easy to migrate tasks. You jot tasks down as you think of them. You can prioritize, but you get used to glancing at the day’s list, and are lulled into…
  • 5 Ways to Energize Content Marketing in 2015

    Angela Booth
    21 Dec 2014 | 3:54 pm
    2015 is a bright new year. Will this be the year that you make content marketing work for your business? If you feel that your strategies aren’t working as well as they should, let’s look at some ways you can energize your efforts. 1. Consider your readers: your ideal customers Too many companies try to create “viral” content which goes nowhere. Or, even worse, becomes wildly successful… but your sales results are a big fat zero. To add insult to injury, your viral content increases the cost of your bandwidth. Focus on your customers. Create a persona (an avatar if you like)…

  • Altitude Pro Theme – Latest Parallax Theme from Studiopress

    Pragati Bidkar
    27 Jan 2015 | 1:09 am
    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?”. I literally…

    Pragati Bidkar, Is blogging a silver bullet or bitter pill? It is neither, in my opinion. Blogging can reap multiple benefits but it is certainly not a panacea. Having fantastic expectations from your blog is a sure formula for failure. If you are reading this, you are either a blogger or are very eager to start blogging. Well, the time is right, because we are all highly motivated and feeling positive at the beginning of a new year.

    27 Nov 2014 | 10:55 pm
    Pragati Bidkar, Black Friday has changed a lot over the years. Sales are starting earlier each year. Many big stores right from Walmart to Macy’s offer online deals. But nothing can beat the anticipation of lining up outside a store on a chilly morning, with a list of the deals you just have to grab. I still fondly remember my first Black Friday sale when we drove three hours to the nearest shopping outlet across state lines. In recent years, the whole Black Friday excitement was marred a bit because Friday was never a holiday at the finance company where I worked.

    While content plays a significant role in B2B content marketing, its benefits can only be reaped if it is applied the right way. Content can be used for product or service promotion, lead generation, and making a connection with prospective and existing customers. However, marketers often tend to overlook the potential that content can bring into B2B marketing. Content must be used in a smart way.

Google has recently amped up the fight against black-hat link building practices, doling out severe penalties to those who step out of line.

    The selection of negative keywords is every bit as important to the success of your pay-per-click (PPC) campaign as your choice of targeted keywords. Negative keywords act like a gatekeeper for your PPC account – helping protect you from unproductive and wasteful search queries that can drain your ad budget with little or no hope of ever seeing a return on your investment. If your business is currently running a Google AdWords or Yahoo/Bing Network Ad campaign without using negative keywords, you’re probably wasting money and not getting the results you’re paying for.

    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.

    13 Jan 2015 | 11:26 am
    In mid-November 2014, Mozilla announced that Yahoo would become the new default search engine for Firefox. This change took place as part of a new five-year partnership, replacing Google as the incumbent search engine. This shake-up created quite the buzz in the search world as SEO and PPC professionals watched to see what kind of shift in traffic was to come, both for organic traffic and paid. Although Firefox trails behind Chrome and IE in search market share, the 3rd-largest browser drives millions of queries a month and a shift in providers would likely impact the search market…

    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…

Recently a conflict of interest with Google’s app store policy forced the company to rebrand their app completely.  The resulting app store optimization (ASO) of the Amazon brand allowed the newly relaunched Amazon Shopping app to surge in rank from 300 to 1st place in less than two weeks.   We compared the app’s performance before and after ASO to see how smart rebranding coupled … Continue reading →

    The app analysis industry has been going through some massive changes in the past year. When trying to valuate an app in the past, app developers and advertisers learned to rely on metrics that told only part of the story. Number of installs, for instance, was considered a good indicator for an app’s popularity, as well as rating and ranking in the app store. These metrics, while undoubtedly important, can’t give a clear picture of an app’s real value since … Continue reading →

  • Living the dream 4 – More Digital Nomads share their story

    17 Dec 2014 | 2:12 pm
    Today, I’m going somewhere very different to meet another Chiang Mai Digital Nomad. In Part 1 of this article I explained what I’m doing here in Chiang Mai, and in Part 2 and Part 3 I explained what Digital Nomads are and introduced you to a few I have met. I’m going out to the rainforest to meet Dani Leis in a little village called Pong Noi. Dani has been kind enough to send her friend (and the best tuk-tuk driver in Chiang Mai), Rung to fetch me. Rung is something of a legend and could easily merit an article of her own… We blasted through the streets of Chiang Mai…

    Tim Felmingham
    11 Dec 2014 | 7:12 pm
    In Part One and Part Two of this article, I explained what I am doing here in Chiang Mai. I’ve come here to meet some Digital Nomads who have given up a conventional lifestyle and moved to Chiang Mai to follow their dreams. In this part, I meet two more Chiang Mai Digital Nomads who have been kind enough to share their stories with me, and tell me about their experiences doing what could be called ‘living the dream’. Abandoning the drudgery (and security) of the 9-5 job, working online instead, and using the independence that offers, to up sticks and live somewhere exotic.

    As I said in part one of this article, I’ve come to Chiang Mai to meet some people who have rejected a conventional work-orientated lifestyle in favour of a more free and flexible life, using their ability to work online as a way of following their dreams and living somewhere exotic. Digital Nomads These people are often referred to as ‘Digital Nomads’, which reflects the fact that because they do their work online, they are free to work from anywhere. Or at least anywhere they can get an internet connection, which these days IS pretty much anywhere. Another term for them is…
  • Living the dream – what’s it like to live the laptop lifestyle?

    Tim Felmingham
    3 Dec 2014 | 11:38 am
    Have you ever wondered what it would be like to quit the 9-5, move somewhere exotic and chase your dreams? So have I and I’m off to Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand to meet some Digital Nomads and find out. After reading The Four Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss, in 2009 I successfully ditched conventional work in favour of earning a living online — a passive income which meant my earnings were no longer related to how much time I spent working (you can read about how I did this here). That is the first part of the lifestyle revolution which Tim Ferriss opened my eyes to, and it changed…

When you think of apprentices today, you’ll likely envision manual labor: carpenters, electricians, and the like.

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).

    22 Jan 2015 | 5:58 am
    Successful slogans aren’t just a blend of a few words. They’re one of the most important elements of an advertising campaign and can turn an ordinary, forgettable message into something worth remembering since the best slogans stay in the memory of consumers for years.

So what should you do if you want to come up with a great slogan and you don’t want to spend a half of your budget to hire a naming agency? First of all you…

To figure it out, it is first necessary to understand what a hashtag is and how it works. Hashtags do an excellent job of filtering. They point to specific conversations…

    The Feel, Felt, Found method of handling sales objections is cliched and old school. And boy, is it ever effective! Even if you don’t know it by name, you have probably heard it in some fashion before. It is used to handle an objection or concern from a prospect, and its three components are: I understand the way you feel, others have felt the same, but what they found… Simply put, this is a strategy to help your prospect see things your way.

If you aren’t familiar with internet memes, I’ll walk you through what they are, how to make one, and some different uses for them. What Is a Meme? The definition of a meme is, “An idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture.” But for all intents and purposes, what we are discussing here is an internet meme.

  • A Complete Guide to Buying Your First Solo Ad

    Brent Jones
    16 Jan 2015 | 2:59 am
    When I searched for what is a solo ad on Google, I was provided with this instant answer: A solo ad is a one time email blast you buy from a vendor that has created a “list” of people they have collected. Put simply, some internet marketers will accept payment in exchange for sending an email you have written to their mailing list. To be clear, this is not the same thing as buying the mailing list itself. A solo ad does not grant you access to email addresses. Rather, you are allowed to compose a message – better known as a swipe email – that the list owner will send…

In reality, that is just the first step. How you optimize and popularize your website is what really attracts new clients.

    It has been said that the attention span of an average human is about 8-seconds. So when it comes to sending emails to your subscribers, it’s apparent that you don’t have much time to impress them; they are either going to take action with your email or send it to the trash folder in the blink of an eye. While many factors come into play with subscriber engagement, if the images in your email aren’t optimized for speed or to grab the reader’s attention, there is a good chance you will lose your audience.

    Marketing automation is an essential part to anyone’s email marketing strategy, because it gives insight into your subscriber’s lifecycle and allows you to market to them properly. One effective form of marketing automation is triggered emails. For those who are not familiar, triggered emails are automated responses based on a specific action taken (or not taken) by a consumer or a meaningful change in their behavior or profile. These timely, relevant and personalized responses create an invitation to advance the communication between a marketer and their customer. A great example of a…

Then, they were translated into many other languages, and currently used throughout the world based on the assumption that the traits and tendencies assessed in the instruments universally exist across cultures and languages. This assumption is actually well-tested, and yes, the constructs of interests assessed in many popular instruments are often indicated to be existential universal.
