Social media isn’t as easy as, “If you build it, they will come.” Your tweets are scheduled, your Facebook has a nifty About Me section. You’ve even got some witty status updates, but no one is clicking. If you’re low on followers (or if you seem to be at a stand still), it may be time to rethink your strategy.
Headlines, headlines, read all about it! Copy, blog posts, newsletters, infographics, and more — What do they all need? An attractive headline. Here are the 9 key components of an effective headline.
You’ve got a website and are on all the major social media platforms — Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. But does it feel like you’re not getting many leads or much customer engagement? Then it may be time for a revamp.
Customer testimonials have become a gateway into your business. Google, Facebook, Yelp, TripAdvisor — your potential customers are looking at what others are saying. You should always respond and we are going to show you how — for the good and the bad.
One often overlooked aspect of marketing is the concept of a buyer persona. A buyer persona is a fictional representation of your customer. It uses data to generalize the types of people that are looking to buy from you — and who you’re looking to sell to.
We all know digital marketers want good results when it comes to SEO, and one of the best ways to earn a high ranking is through link building. But, we aren’t going to lie to you: it is difficult, even if you have a perfectly outlined strategy. Getting others to share your link on their site can be a bit tricky.
In the age of technology, it’s no secret that having a strong social media presence can be a powerful tool in the success of your business. Here are 9 social media don’ts to make your social media work for you.
It has happened to all of us at some point. You think your content will blow your followers away. You publish and wait. Still waiting… And no one shares it. Why isn’t your audience engaging? Was all that hard work for nothing? Yes. Slightly joking, but there are legitimate reasons why your content may not be getting shared with the social world.
Business owners often get going on their business and then think about marketing later. While we don’t advocate that approach, we understand how it happens. But when your business starts to grow (or doesn’t!) and you decide you want marketing, be sure you are fully prepared to commit, because marketing is a long-term relationship.
If you Google content management systems for your website, you are bound to get several different platforms from which to choose. But trust us, content management systems (CMS) are not universal. So how do you know which one is right for you and your business? One thing is for sure, make sure you test the waters before jumping in.
