Outreach is exceptional. It gives you a great head start when you most need one - it teaches you what people in your niche best respond to and it makes you more popular. There are endless benefits to it. And while these are widely discussed, we’re going to go through some poignant examples of outreach (with their dos and don’ts) and their results.
The key takeout is being able to make a comparison between the different types of situations the following people found themselves in, and [...]
As you may have already found out or experienced on your site, Twitter share counts are no longer updating on the share buttons starting with the 20th of November this year. This means that all share buttons out there that relied on the Twitter share count endpoint are no longer providing share counts. This includes Twitter’s own official tweet button. Basically, Twitter seems to be de-emphasizing one of its defining metrics: the share counts. The impact the big social network's decision ha [...]
So you’ve got a blog. Don’t tell yourself that great content alone should do the job. It’s a trap. The world’s most essential information will remain unknown unless you deliver it consistently. This little cold, hard fact here is where we all started from.
What you’re about to read is a general guideline with examples. Finding your brand voices is more than just establishing a consistent communication strategy - ‘the how?’ and ‘why?’ are at least as important as t [...]
Dealing with the truth isn't always an easy job. But your best product can get lost on the way without a solid network to confirm its value. This is why investing in strong professional relationships and building a powerful audience around your products is something that deserves your best attention. And while this is a troublesome process in itself, gathering the most pertinent solutions isn't a walk in the park either.
Almost a third of the B2B marketers admitted that their posts [...]
Fluctuations in traffic happen to the best of us. Yet, there is no excuse for poor content strategy on your website. There are two types of content from the point of view of relevance over time: the first category includes any article written based on a trending subject. Its advantage is that, treated properly, it boosts your website’s audience overnight - of course, the inherent drawback is that people will shortly lose interest in that specific subject. The second type of content does noth [...]
There is too much content in the world to keep up with it. At the end of 2013 it was estimated there over 14 trillion live webpages on the Internet. Out of those, just 48 billion were indexed by Google. So if Google is the Internet made visible, we can basically see about 0.3% of the whole online content. At least we could. It’s not just that the Internet is unfathomably huge, it also grows at an absolutely staggering rate. With this soaring growth, having access to the all the content out the [...]
To upcycle content is to take components from original content and though creativity transform them into fresh pieces of content across different media and for different content platforms.
Creating content costs a lot of money. Good content which attracts and engages your target audience takes a serious amount of time and investment.
Getting the most out of your content spend is essential in achieving a good ROI on content investment, which is why you should always upcycle content rather start [...]
Analyzing and tracking the social footprint of any website on the three big social networks: Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus is of a great importance and we are very proud that we can offer you this possibility through our old Social Visibility module. Yet, we feel it's time to broaden our (and your) spectrum of marketing platforms with 2 important different networks: LinkedIn and Pinterest. Each unique, each with a huge potential, each with a particular look, feel and advantage. However, th [...]
How many times didn't we think that a message can either be formulated in an emotional or a rational way? In fact, this should be more of a mixture than a decision between the two. Scientific research proves that people whose emotional side of the brain is damaged are not able to make any decisions. Consequently, no decision is ultimately exclusively rational, which brings a new perspective on content marketing strategies when it comes to addressing their target. While objectives can be generall [...]
As content creators we spend most of the time focused on niches, or sectors, when we should be creating content for tribes. I first read about the concept of Tribes in a book by Seth Godin. Since then I always make sure my content appeals to a specific and influential tribe, rather than targeted at a niche. There are lots of advantages to targeting tribes and at the very least, learning the technique can add another effective tool to the toolbox.
In many ways niche marketing is ol [...]
