When running a blog or a website, you probably want to get loads of visitors and traffic to be a perfect competitor. With the right strategy, you can reach your target and convert visitors into potential customers.   Keyword research is one of the best tactics to boost traffic on your website without spending much money. Using long-tail keywords can make sense if it comes to getting more targeted traffic in search engines.   At the AMA Content Marketing Conference, Chris Baggot [...]
How do you get to be the best? 'Know yourself to improve yourself' said famous positivist philosopher August Comte in the 19th century. 'Know yourself, know your worth', echoed famous rapper Drake more recently. Regardless who you feel closer to, they’re both right.   One of the cornerstones of becoming the best – or just better – in any field is understanding where you are right now and how you can move past that.   In SEO, that means understanding where you stand co [...]
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 [...]
  If you’re into gadgets (and since you’re following us, chances say you are), you’ve probably watched at least one “unboxing” video already. You get to see someone – usually just someone’s hands – take out something from its original box, remove the wrapping, maybe even turn the device on, all this while an off-screen voice tells about how it looks and how it feels. Most unboxing videos don’t really go into a proper review of the product’s technical specifications or [...]
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 [...]
There is a common saying that “no job is finished until the paperwork is done”. And this quote is just as true for any profession - from a small eCommerce business to the Government - because generally talking, the only way a client can judge how well you’re doing the job is by reading the reports frequently. If something wasn’t included in the report, the client usually assumes it didn’t happen. If the report is inadequate, the client assumes that the job done is inadequate. If the re [...]
There is a place where we all go when it comes to finding answers about various things on the planet, from the definition of the sewing needle to the history of money. Interesting things are to be discovered on Wikipedia. What we've recently found out is that even more appealing things are to be found "underneath" Wikipedia. From the revenue Wikipedia started with, continuing with the editors' controversy and, what drew our attention most, the advertising policy of the big online encyclopedia. W [...]
  Finding who is influential is crucial for promotion in any content publishing strategy. There are many ways to figure out who is influential and who is not, the trick is not to rely on one source but to steep yourself in the niche and those who are influential will become self-evident.   It is important when you set about creating content that you know and understand the audience which the content should be for. Rather than producing broad content that tries to please as man [...]
