"6 "Could Tell You, But Have To Kill You" Internet Marketing Secrets Shared" - via Haiku Deck | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

These secrets are hard to share not because of how SECRET they are, but because of how automatic they become after Internet marketing for almost 15 years.

6 Internet Marketing Secrets
* use WordPress Themes.
* Solve Brand Conflicts.
* Tease Clicks Don't Drown Them.

* Test Video Marketing.
* Align Website Nonverbals.
* People and Stories Sell not Cool Tech.

This last bullet is the hardest to convince #startups and #smbs. Real estate agents want to show their MLS widget, the same widget every other real estate agent has. Startups want to show their widget.

PEOPLE and STORIES are what makes great website content because we BUY with EMOTION and JUSTIFY with LOGIC.

Visual Information & How It Affects Website Traffic [Infographic]

Visual Information & How It Affects Website Traffic [Infographic] | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it
Educate yourself about the importance of visual information on your website. With infographics, you will gain a lot more traffic for your growing website.

Visual information is processed faster by the brain, with 90% of all the information that we take in is visual. But the thing with visual information is also that unless it’s a really good story or article, people don’t want to read through a whole page of text when he or she could do something else more fun. So, throw in an infographic with visual information, and you’ll have a winner...

Website Design: 5 Working With Templates Tips - Marty Tips

Website Design: 5 Working With Templates Tips - Marty Tips | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Had fun creating CureCancerStore.org with my friends Eric and Cynthia Garrison's Agile7 template. As I worked I was reminded of a few tips that may help any web designer, and aren't we all web designers now, work with templates including:

* SEO Don't Forget it.
* Adjust YOUR Perspective Not Other Way Around.

* Get Creative and Modify What is THERE.

* Improve Shopping Cart LATER.

* Tables and old HTML are TOUGH.

This last bullet is important. The world is HTML5 and CSS3 and if you don't have CSS skills templates are both a Gift from God and a Curse from the Devil. If, like me, you still can write <tables> don't expect them to look like what you expect because their display is controlled by CSS (style sheets).

I tend to bull forward and do the best I can until a firm understanding of where and how we are making money. Once I understand how the site makes money I can invest intelligently in designers with more talent than me (not hard to find those btw lol).

This post should help anyone know how to work with templates better to design a website or blog and templates are in all of our futures because they are great, getting better and cheap.

Why You Need User Experience Thinking - Kluge Interactive

Why You Need User Experience Thinking - Kluge Interactive | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

My friend Dean Peters is right. YOU may have been your website's users at some distant point. Not so much now. Internet marketing teams look at their creation constantly. 

Let's call the resulting "snow blindness" Internet marketing blindness because the closer a team is to a website the less they see or can see. Great Tweet from IM Guru @DeanPeters.  

 

Here is Dean's note from LinkedIn: 

"*Why Do You Need #UserExperience Thinking* ? Because You are not your Users, and I quote: "Many people think they know their customer. Often, they don’t. In the User Experience (UX) Community, we are fond of saying ' _you are not your user_ .' Repeat that mantra over and over until you live it..

Be sure to follow Dean on Twitter. One of those rare people who every time you interact with him you LEARN something. M
