    Aaron Wall
    6 May 2015 | 1:22 am
    Yesterday Google shared they see greater mobile than desktop search volumes in 10 countries including Japan and the United States. 3 years ago RKG shared CTR data which highlighted how mobile search ads were getting over double the CTR as desktop search ads. The basic formula: less screen real estate = higher proportion of user clicks on ads. Google made a big deal of their "mobilepocalypse" update to scare other webmasters into making their sites mobile friendly. Part of the goal of making sites "mobile friendly" is to ensure it isn't too ad dense (which in turn lowers accidental ad clicks…
  • Google Mobilepocalypse Update

    Aaron Wall
    22 Apr 2015 | 7:27 am
    A day after the alleged major update, I thought it would make sense to highlight where we are at in the cycle. Yesterday Google suggested their fear messaging caused 4.7% of webmasters to move over to mobile friendly design since the update was originally announced a few months ago. The 4.7% of the websites Google pushed to go mobile friendly likely include some sites which would have been mobile friendly anyhow by virtue of being new sites on hosted platforms with responsive designs. But for the rest of the sites, was the shift worth it? That is a tough question. It is too early to tell.
  • Consensus Bias

    Aaron Wall
    15 Apr 2015 | 7:10 am
    The Truth About Subjective Truths A few months ago there was an article in New Scientist about Google's research paper on potentially ranking sites based on how factual their content is. The idea is generally and genuinely absurd. You can't copyright facts, which means that if this were a primary ranking signal & people focused on it then they would be optimizing their site to be scraped-n-displaced into the knowledge graph. Some people may sugar coat the knowledge graph and rich answers as opportunity, but it is Google outsourcing the cost of editorial labor while reaping the rewards.

    Information is a commodity. Corporations are passing around consumer behavioral profiles like brokers with stocks, and the vast majority of the American public is none the wiser of this market’s scope. Very few people actually check the permissions portion of the Google Play store page before downloading a new app, and who has time to pore over the tedious 48-page monstrosity that is the iTunes terms and conditions contract? With the advent of wearables, ubiquitous computing, and widespread mobile usage, the individual’s market share of their own information is shrinking at an alarming…

    18 Mar 2015 | 4:19 pm
    Google recently added highlights at the bottom of various sections of their mobile search results. The highlights appear on ads, organic results, and other various vertical search insertion types. The colors vary arbitrarily by section and are patterned off the colors in the Google logo. Historically such borders have conveyed a meaning, like separating advertisements from organic search results, but now the colors have no meaning other than acting as a visual separator. We recently surveyed users to see if they understood what the borders represented & if they felt the borders had any…

    Bing intends to expand its index of search results to include content from mobile apps, the company stated in an announcement today. In fact, Bing is building what it calls a “massive index” of content from apps across all three major platforms — iOS, Android, and Windows. Content on mobile apps typically exists in a vacuum, meaning its not crawlable, searchable, or indexable outside of the app itself. Google has made some progress with respect to indexing mobile app content, but even then it’s limited to only select Android apps. Bing wants its users to be able to find mobile…

You see the outcome immediately, but the cause is hardly ever staring you straight in the face. You first have to dig for clues (data). Then you have to try to piece them together (analysis), come up with a theory, and find the evidence to back it up (test). One…

Link building without good on site search optimization isnít going to be as effective plain and simple. Search engines have evolved greatly this is no longer 2005 where you could just buy some cheap links and spam profile links and do black hat tactics like referrer spam to get ranked. Today Google places a lot of importance on your site itself.
  • Improving Your Margins Through Up Selling Is Important With Online Ecommerce

    25 Feb 2015 | 10:06 am
    In our everyday life we are exposed to up-selling all the time. Every time we go through the drive through we are asked if we would like to super-size this or that for 40 cents extra, or if we would like fries with that. At restaurants they offer to upgrade our drinks to premium spirits for a small extra fee. Online it plays out differently but the process is much the same. Up-selling is just getting customers who are already committed to purchasing a product and are already engaged in the buying process to add more products to the shopping cart. The most effective way to do this is to…

    by Jayson DeMers SEO is a process that requires ongoing education and learning.

  • Paid search is still frustrating for searchers

    28 Apr 2015 | 10:10 am
    by Mike Moran When I speak to groups, I often ask how many people never click on paid search ads and many hands go up--usually half the room. It ain't true. Estimates are that around one-quarter of all search clicks are on paid search ads and it is 100% of Google's search income, so most people click on ads at least once in a while. But people raise their hands because they still get frustrated by paid ads and they wish they hadn't clicked on them. Part of the frustration comes from advertisers who use broad match for keywords. There's nothing intrinsically wrong with doing…

The reason for this change is to ensure users on mobile devices have a consistently positive experience. Google's decision mostly considers "mobile friendliness" of a site. Prior to its release, Google prepared website owners with a handy FAQ, communicating that the changes…

I am currently the in-house SEO for a real estate chain, but I am quite keen to start my own consulting business part time.

I can’t afford to pay per click the amounts that the big players are paying on Google AdWords and I’m not confident enough with Bing Ads to try that. I did experiment with some Facebook advertising, but the response wasn’t great so I don’t think it’s really where my market is.

  • Hard Numbers for Public Posting Activity on Google Plus

    Eric Enge
    14 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
    The debate on the activity level on Google+ has raged for years. How many users are really active on it? Is the place a ghost town? Why hasn’t Google shut it down already? Well, I decided to put it to the test, so I did a hardcore analysis of 516,246 randomly selected Google+ profiles, and this post has the scoop for you. Sit down and fasten your seat belts because here we go! Short Takes Since you create a Google profile regardless of how you sign up with Google, it should be no surprise that there are many people with profiles on Google+ that have never posted publicly there. But how…

You’ll never order flowers from a middleman again. So, over the years, as friends have lost loved ones, or celebrated weddings and new arrivals, I always look for a local florist in the delivery area and call the shop direct to place an order. I’ve ordered directly from probably 10-15 florists across the U.S., but never before has something like this come in the mail…

    Last week Andrew Shotland noted some traffic declines for a number of local directories that he associated with the Door Way Page Algo update. In that post, Phl Rozak  of LocalVisibility noted in the comments to that post that he had simultaneously seen an increase in pack results not just for real estate but for other search terms like “DUI law, water damage restoration, and possibly like Botox and liposuction”. I finally got around to looking and saw the clear increases in real estate searches. Late last week Dr. Pete of Moz alerted me to a dramatic uptick in the Moz Cast…

    Google has recently removed links from the Local Knowledge Panel in search to the Google Plus Local Page. Nicolai Helling now reports that the last links standing in Google Maps, to read and or write reviews on the G+ Page for Local, have now been redirected as well. The read reviews link now redirects to the Review Box that has been presented on the front page of search and the write a review link redirects to the write a review box in the same area. When viewed with the rumors of a restructured G+ and the removal of links from the Knowledge Panel to new posts, it certainly raises…

    Recently Google+ posts stopped showing up in the knowledge panel and Twitter content started showing up in real time in Google mobile searches. The only value to an SMB of using Plus and the only reason I recommended it was that it put messaging and an image on the front page of Google search. That post conveyed a positive brand message AND pushed “people also search for” competitors below the fold on many displays. It was a once a month, easy to implement tactic where an SMB could simply cross post content from Facebook. It would seem that Twitter content can now provide a…

    One compelling reason for an SMB to use Google Plus was the fact that their most recent G+ posts and photo would appear on the Knowledge Panel for branded search results. First noticed disappearing by Mary Bowling about a month ago, it is now gone for good. Google confirmed its passage by saying: “We’re always mixing things up on Search, and this change is no different. We’ve found that most people care about seeing hours of operation, directions, and photos when they search for businesses, so we’re making that information the most visible.

  • Why does your business have a website?

    Cameron Davis
    13 May 2015 | 10:08 am
    It seems like a ridiculous question.  Oddly enough – it’s probably a question that many business owners have never stopped to really think about.  “Why?”  “What is the actual function and purpose of this thing?” If the answer is something like, “Well – we just need one” or “so people call us,” there is a serious problem.  Maybe the better question is, “How is my website contributing to my business growth?” For eCommerce sites, the answer is more intuitive because in many cases the website is the business.  But for everyone else – especially local…

    The Spartan Project will increase Bing’s market share. Well it’s about time Microsoft got a new browser! When was the last time someone willingly used Internet Explorer? I know people use it (58% in fact), but I get the feeling it’s just from being the default on PCs, right? With a new “lightweight” browser, Microsoft hopes users actually choose Spartan. And they have the opportunity for Spartan (or whatever they call it) to lead users to use Bing instead of Google. Right now Bing has only 19% of the search traffic.

    Natalie Sullivan
    21 May 2015 | 2:13 pm
    Google is currently the leading search engine for mobile sites, with more than 90% of the market share. Their decision to concentrate upon mobile accessibility sometimes works to the detriment of their traditional PC-based market. Until recently, many Google website owners had sites which were focused upon the PC user, rather than upon mobile devices, but with Google’s decision to require mobile-friendly websites from its users, websites owners are now facing a choice: ignore the new directive, and risk sliding down the search engine rankings, or obey the directive, and try to make your…

In April of 2015, Google announced, through its project manager Lawrence Chang, that it had developed new ways to help you reach out to people who have already bought your app, and might want to contact you again in the future, and also to those who might not have realised that your app is available to them.

The hashtag is a clue to the type of information need the audience will have. You also have to be prepared with the right brand voice to use (one of authority and credibility) and make sure…

    Okay, we’ve all been there…and some of us it appears get more hassled by poor Customer Experience (CX) than others and at my age that’s something I well know! But if you’ve ever been an entrepreneur, a person who has had their own business whether it be owning a restaurant or a SaaS company or even a food truck…the fact is, our most important asset is NOT the bricks or mortar or even our employees….in my world it’s your customers.

    4 May 2015 | 10:49 am
    The term “call to action” means, well, just what it sounds like – it’s instructing someone to do what you want them to do, or calling them to action. For example, a successful call to action can motivate a customer to click on a link at the end of a blog post, reply to an e-mail, or “like” your post on Facebook. After your readers have finished reading your content, a call to action provides web visitors with the next step, leading them one step closer to converting from a visitor to a customer. Whether it’s completing a sale or downloading an article, a strong call to action is…

    When was the last time you were on YouTube? I’m willing to bet it was recent. TechCrunch reports that the average YouTuber watches 5 hours of video a month. Assuming that isn’t condensed into one day, that’s about 10 minutes of video a day. Sounds reasonable. You probably ended up on YouTube because a friend sent you a link to a short funny video (that time adds up). An advertisement probably played before the actual video. And there were also probably ads within the video and to the right of the video in the sidebar. Now, YouTube has over 1 billion users. If just 1% of them are online…

    Have you ever issued a website RFP and received limited responses? Did you wonder what went wrong and why design agencies failed to reply with earnest? You’re not alone. The breakdown in the RFP process can be attributed to both the RFP issuer and the RFP responders. And it is an issue that has been growing for years. On the client side, a lot of companies fail to publish a solid RFP, which makes it difficult for agencies to respond or even take them serious. On the agency side, design firms have grown so jaded about poorly written RFP documents that many won’t even reply. This breakdown…

Because owning your own products is one of the keys to long term online success. Yes, there are short term strategies that you can use to potentially make money here and there.

  • Pixels Please: Image Scaling in CSS

    Tom Bennet
    26 Mar 2015 | 5:30 am
    Until now, web developers have had very little control over how browsers render images when they’re scaled. Take Mario, for instance: This is a 24×32 pixel image, scaled up using Photoshop to preserve its crisp, blocky composition. It’s a great example of the low-res pixel art that’s long been a staple of retro and indie games. Let’s see how our image is rendered in the browser when scaled up using CSS: As you can see, the effect is suboptimal – the browser’s default scaling algorithm (usually bi-linear interpolation) has applied anti-aliasing to the image. Whilst good…

However, according to sources, around 70 percent of RTBF requests were denied by Google in the last year.

    Gideon Haden
    22 May 2015 | 6:00 am
    Some people love the thought of being able to do anything and everything under the sun. You look back at those old renaissance men who were carpenters/ mathematicians/ philosophers/ doctors/ painters/ sculptors/ writers/ cobblers/ bakers/ used car salesmen/ ballroom dancers/ cake aficionados, and you think – wow, I’d like to be like them. Being able to do absolutely everything is certainly an appealing idea, and with the internet being chock-full of how-tos and DIY tutorials, even seems possible. However, there is a big problem with trying to do everything, and that’s…

    Rebecca Haden
    21 May 2015 | 9:02 am
    Google Analytics goals can do some great things for you. By configuring goals in Google Analytics, you can see not just how many people bought your product or what percentage of your readers make it all the way to the bottom of the page, but also actionable things like which of your traffic sources has the best conversion rate (so you can direct your resources to the right places) and how your ads perform beyond the hits and clicks in the reports you receive. But sometimes setting up a goal isn’t the most efficient way to get the information. We’ve been working with the dynamic…

    Online appointments are already appealing as an idea. Your patients or clients can make their appointments fast, at any time of day or night when they feel the need, without having to stay on hold or announce their problems aloud in a hallway between meetings. From  your side of the phone, online appointment scheduling can increase revenue and save money by reducing staff time spent on the phone and also reducing no-shows. What’s not to like? But an American Medical News case study found that even in a practice where online booking was successful, only 35% of patients scheduled their…

    Your WordPress website has an admin area that can be accessed by you and anyone else you give permission to. As with most elements of WordPress, there’s a basic setup that comes with your WordPress installation, and then the details can be settled as your web team builds the website. Basically, you have control over who has access to your website. Your web team (the people who built your website) must have full access to your website, though some designers prefer to use FTP access rather than or along with Administrator access in the WP Admin area. Your webmaster must have full access,…
  • Is Social Media Bad For Us?… Again: Dangerous Trends on Social Media

    Gideon Haden
    14 May 2015 | 6:00 am
    Social media has many uses, and even makes for a lovely scapegoat. Recently, a number of dangerous dares and challenges on social media have prompted people to ask, again, is social media bad for us? Some folks take the stance that social media can promote reckless behavior. In a sense, this is true. However, it’s not that social media inherently makes people do crazy and foolish things. Social media just gives people a much larger audience. It’s a way to share thoughts, ideas, and yes, unwise challenges with huge numbers of people. Lighting yourself on fire, choking on spoonfuls…

    20 May 2015 | 3:48 pm
    Idiots Driving the SEO Train Imagine your position is to be the “thought leader” for seo at your company. Pretty cool, right? Finally made it to the “top of the mountain”. Then, about 24 hours before it goes live, you are told that your multi-million dollar site is switching from a subdomain BACK to the original “www” site, AND with the HTTPS layer on top of it. Best part? They never asked you to look at ANYTHING. So, this means a few things. 1.) I’m hoping that all my blathering for the past three years has sunk in to every level of development and…

    Search Reputation Vs Local Rankings Let’s get one thing clear – both are extremely important to any brand. But for the sake of this topic, which one is more important to focus on? Let’s use an example of a brand that has a location in every major metro in a country. The first step is to get ranked for “geotargeted term + keyword”. that’s the easy goal. Terms like “Austin colleges”, “art colleges Austin”, etc. So, the person searching finds the listing and is thinking about considering that school as a place to go into a ton of debt…

    Why I Quit Domaining Coming from me, this isn’t news. I’m not a major player that owns thousands of domains or even a few really good ones. Instead, I’m someone who *used* to make a good amount of money from the domaining industry. It was never enough to quit working, but it provided for some nice vacations and a few extra items around the house. But as I dove deeper into the realm of domains and tried to expand on the number of domains I could own, an evolution happened. People were starting to use the web in a smarter way. What do I mean by this? There was a time when…

Not a day goes by where at least ten new articles are talking about some algorithm change, or some other way to get links or create content that Google will favor. WHY?!

  • Facebook News Feed Trick

    3 Jun 2014 | 3:51 am
    Facebook News Feed Trick So, the reason it’s a called a “trick” is that this won’t last for too much longer. My guesstimate is that within six months of this getting published, Facebook will close the loop on this. In case you weren’t aware, your Fanpage posts are only seen by 10 percent of your fans. All the time and effort building your likes is being monetized by Facebook. They want you to spend even more to reach the connections you’ve already created! THE STRATEGY In August of 2013, Facebook introduced something called “Story Bumping”. To best…

    The great thing about content writing is that, given the list of keywords you have, you can more or less figure out what to write for the next due article. The other side of the coin, though, is that having to work with the same list of keywords over and over again—not to mention the volume of content you have to write on a monthly or weekly basis—can leave you fresh out of ideas and staring at a clean, blank page.

    In the marketing world content is king, it always will be. My first hand experience has shown this to be very true. Once upon a time my content was lacking on my AF sites (affiliate marketing sites) and my niche sites. I struggled with online marketing. I was putting in the time and effort but the sales were lacking. My content I thought was good, it was not. It took a hard look at the content I was producing or hiring others to do for me.

    Most industries fit very clearly into one of two categories – art or science. For marketing, however, the line is a bit more blurred. And depending on who you ask, you may get starkly contrasting answers as to which one it is.

That approach can not only influence their individual efforts, but the direction of their company’s marketing overall. So which direction should your strategy ideally lean?

    Currently Viral – May 21, 2015 We all know reddit attracts introverted geeks and there’s nothing like a post that empathizes with the introvert’s social plight amid a sea of like-minded socially awkward redditors. The image, originally posted on imgur, encapsulates who we’ve all felt at different times trying to edge into a conversation at a social event, whether we’re introverts or extroverts. The post is currently trending at 539 comments and counting in the /funny/ subreddit. This thread is significant because it’s probably the most empathy ever shown in one…
  • New to Google Analytics? Check out these Essential Easy to Use Features

    18 May 2015 | 10:19 am
    Many enterprises rely on Google Analytics to track customers wherever they are. The results allow businesses to optimize their websites and pages, pinpoint opportunities for improvement, and understand where their channels are the most successful. This is an easy way to attribute conversions and online transactions to a specific source or medium, whether it’s an ad campaign, organic search, or any other entry point that led to a consumer’s purchasing decision. Getting started and sorting through the vast amounts of information Google Analytics uncovers, though, can be difficult. Here are…

    Currently Viral – May 13th, 2015 Nothing says variety like an orphan attending Harvard, a big spider and a failed “prank”.   TIL an nine year old orphaned child from Rwanda living in a garbage dump told a charity worker “I want to go to school”. He is now 22, and attending Harvard. Everybody loves a feel good story. And this one is simply amazing. This young man lost his parents to the ethnic genocide that took place when he was just nine years old. However this didn’t stop him from pursing what education he could get and moving forward. It’s a really inspirational story.

  • Viral Wednesday: Cinco de Mayo Aftermath and More

    Shawn Cohen
    6 May 2015 | 9:07 am
    So yesterday was Cinco de Mayo, in case you hadn’t noticed. And American apparently needed a refresher course on what this Mexican holiday is all about. Thanks to ABC, NBC, and every other major news outlet out there, we never have to wonder again. If you already create a lot of video, it can be tough to score a viral post on a day like Cinco de Mayo—Buzzfeed’s Cinco video has fewer views than the international beer video they posted the same day (471k v. 397k at the time of this article was written, if it can be called an article. Whatever.). What Happened on Pinterest? However,…

  • How to Create a Viral Idea in a Boring Vertical

    Andrea Lehr
    21 May 2015 | 6:00 am
    As much as we love variety, let’s face it: Some things are just plain boring. This can feel especially true when you’re working with multiple clients – some days you’re offering endless ideas about comic book characters and movies; the next you’re trying to make any inch of linoleum seem cool. It’s a daunting task, but it’s not impossible. You can successfully create viral content within boring verticals; however, it requires you to conduct a focused research strategy and curate a very specific outreach plan. It all comes down to who will link to it and who will share it. Here,…

  • 7 Practices That Maximize the ROI of Negative Pitch Replies

    Andrea Lehr
    7 May 2015 | 6:00 am
    Nobody likes negative feedback. Even if you mask it as “constructive criticism,” it still stings. In promotions, it’s not uncommon to receive a negative response from an editor – some of the worst I’ve received is a simple, “No.” However, what you might not realize is that a negative response isn’t a dead end – it’s an opportunity to continue a conversation with the editor. They’ve opened the door to build a relationship and earn future placements, but the trick is how to get there. The best response should sound like the beginning of a natural conversation – you want…
  • How To Earn More Links for Your Campaign with Link Reclamation

    30 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
    Establishing a diverse, high-quality link portfolio is crucial to increasing your organic rankings. Between July 2013 and July 2014, more than 80 percent of companies increased their spending on tactics that earn links. When launching a campaign, you must be acutely aware of where your campaign spreads after the first exclusive goes live. Most campaigns that earn a top-tier pickup will spread through social networks, messaging systems, news sites, and blogs, allowing you to secure a cascade of links from your original placement. If you’re not monitoring this spread and optimizing it for…

Here we’ll walk you through the questions you need to ask yourself during the three phases in order to produce a campaign that will reach high levels of social traction.   1. What makes my target audience tick?

  • Content Creators: Always Check Your Facts

    Nick Greene
    18 May 2015 | 9:53 am
    There’s an old saying in tabloid journalism: “never let the facts get in the way of a good story.” Unfortunately, it seems like lately, the line between tabloids and legitimate publications is starting to become a little blurred. I’m going to come right out and say it: if you’re a content creator, you need to make sure you’re citing reputable sources. Take search engine optimization, for example. Although I’m not going to name any specific publications, there exists a ton of self-professed ‘experts’ on the web who do little more than…

    I’m always a little disgusted when I see people wielding the DMCA as a legal bludgeon. That’s not even remotely what it was intended to do, after all. It’s suppose to serve more as a shield – as a tool that can be used by legitimate content creators when someone steals their stuff. The DMCA should come into play when someone plagiarizes an article. It should be utilized when someone profits off of someone else’s music. It should be brought into effect when a user steals someone else’s video. What it shouldn’t be is a tool for censorship and…

  • The Ad Campaign For Ava Demonstrates Exactly How NOT To Engage With Your Audience

    Nick Greene
    27 Apr 2015 | 10:48 am
    I’m not sure if you’ve heard yet, but there was a rather interesting ad campaign being run on tinder a few weeks back during SXSW. Basically, there was this girl named Ava who started using the app in Austin. She was from New York; she was a twenty-five year old aspiring artist and a lover of city life. She also didn’t actually exist. Ava, as it turned out, was just a construct – a bot designed by the studio behind the upcoming film Ex Machina. How she – or I suppose, more accurately, it – worked was pretty simple. After someone made a connection with her,…

    At some point or another, you may consider expanding your customer base internationally; a strategy which like any successful digital venture, requires a great deal of forethought, planning and consideration. Rather than caving to the temptation of believing that an English language PPC campaign will work all around the world – which will more than likely leave you believing that it doesn’t work after all in light of quite a few pounds spent in poorly invested budget – let’s face facts: in most countries where they do learn and speak English, they don’t use it to an…

    Jesse Stoler
    13 May 2015 | 6:02 am
    There are people who would say that because I’m a link builder, I don’t believe in link earning. I’m not shy, so you’ll know when I don’t believe in something: trickle down economics, aliens at Area 51, George Clooney’s range as an actor, etc. But I do believe in link earning. I just don’t believe in how the digital marketing community has come to define it. The typical definition of link earning revolves around the idea that your site/content should be SO good that you don’t even need to promote it. The links will come. As a link builder,…

For digital marketers, that means you should be able to write compelling copy, devise creative strategies, code a landing page and design an email template. As nice as that sounds, the realities of the workplace often make that difficult to achieve. Professionals naturally develop core competencies in which they excel.

In fact, Bing is building what it calls a “massive index” of content from apps across all three major platforms — iOS, Android, and Windows. Content on mobile apps typically exists in a vacuum, meaning its not crawlable, searchable, or indexable outside of the app itself. Google has made some progress with respect to indexing mobile app content, but even then it’s limited to only select Android apps. Bing wants its users to be able to find mobile…

Instead, the customer now has access to a nearly inexhaustible amount of information that can help them answer product or sales questions even before starting the buying process with a specific company or person. Because of this, sales, as we know it, must now approach their audience in a…
  • Office Psychology Among Startups: How to Foster the Right Culture for Success [Guest Post]
    5 May 2015 | 1:13 pm
    Psychology in the workplace is inevitable since by definition, it involves working with people’s intellect, emotions and behaviors. In an article posted at Harvard Business Review, the author states that all organizations are political to some degree, and always will be, for underlying psychological reasons. Where startups are concerned, psychology in the workplace can be vital for success. For example, if a single employee feels, for whatever reason, that the new enterprise is destined for failure, this opinion can threaten the overall success of the endeavor for a number of reasons.

  • How to Generate Leads Online as an IT Company
    15 Apr 2015 | 1:13 pm
    The internet has changed drastically in recent years, causing the sales process to change significantly as well. Because of this explosive online growth, up to 80% of B2B sales cycles are actually completed before the buyer even considers contacting the vendor they are interested in. This change is significant for B2B companies, like IT management companies, but very few business owners and CEO’s have made the changes necessary to adapt their marketing and sales strategies to the new buying habits of their audience. How can B2B companies make this change? Inbound marketing is the process of…

    Today’s internet is incredibly fast moving. In my many years as an internet marketer I have observed (and been party to) the quickening pace, but things really seem to have accelerated over the past year. I am seeing lots of new sites popping up and achieving rapid growth, generating eye watering amounts of traffic in very short periods of time. And this rapid early growth is not fueled by SEO – at least not in the traditional sense. If google originally envisioned a truly democratic web, where the best content and ideas would be ‘voted’ to the top by the internet…

Can we predict the General Election this year? It’s hard to say. Where polls once weighed heavily between Labour and the Conservatives, we’re now seeing a sundry of parties slicing up the votes. The Green Party, UK Independence Party and the Scottish National Party have seen huge surges in support, creating new factors the British public (not to mention the campaigners) have never had to deal with before.

    Authority. If you are a regular reader of internet marketing/SEO blogs, you’ll see that word popping up a lot; become an authority, build your authority, authority this, authority that. It’s probably up there with ‘content is king’ as the most overused phrase in SEO, but you know what, there is a reason for that… It’s because it’s true. The thing is, once you become a recognised authority in your niche everything else falls into place. Link building becomes easier (in fact you probably won’t have to actually ‘build’ any links),…

As I walk down the street in NYC, I have to duck and dodge every few minutes to avoid running into someone with their head down, nose in their phone. No wonder mobile apps have become some prevalent. While I still contest that many (if not most) businesses don’t actually need to create an app (but rather just create a mobile-optimized website), many apps are the business onto themselves. And like any business, they need to implement a marketing strategy – or strategies – to succeed. One extremely powerful method for…

    The good folks over at Consulting Success have recently finished conducting their annual marketing for consultants survey. The results are quite interesting. One thing that Michael Zipursky (head honcho over at Consulting Success) points out is the difference in marketing spend as compared to 2013. Consultants are spending less on marketing. But income levels have stayed pretty steady. So that means they are more profitable. This is really in line with industry trends (as consulting is a booming market and is growing rapidly). Companies are seeking to hire consultants more than ever before.

                                   For a small business owner, mobile marketing may seem like a daunting, costly or time-consuming task. You may rely on a mobile phone and mobile apps to conduct business, but may not market or advertise your business to a mobile-first audience. The truth is, if you’re not creating a mobile marketing plan, then your business loses out on the majority of U.S. consumers. According to Google, more searches come from mobile phones than laptops or desktops. Thankfully, you don’t have to sacrifice time and resources to tap into the mobile market.

In order to determine the reputation of potential healthcare providers, patients look at online reviews to ensure their doctor is not only the best qualified but also provides an excellent bed-side manner. The better review your practice receives, the greater the opportunity to convince a potential patient he or she should choose you as their provider.

  • App Indexing – The New SEO Generation

    4 Mar 2015 | 4:57 am
    Back in 2012, I predicted that Google would use an API to crawl app content. My thinking was that Google’s current method of crawling Web pages with a spider was not only inefficient, but it was based on hyperlinks. Apps don’t use hyperlinks to connect content as Web pages do, so a much better way for Google to discover content in an app is through an API. Fast-forward to 2015 and Google has released the ability to index app content through an API called the Mobile App Indexing API. It’s a little different than what I had conceived back in 2012, but the premise is the same. My vision…

What do you need to know first and for most before choosing which social media platforms to use? Define your goals – you need a sense of direction – a clear vision of where you want to go and what you want to achieve from social media.
