Social media and SEO: What you need to know - Adam Houlahan

Social media and SEO: What you need to know - Adam Houlahan | Blogging, Social Media & Tools | Scoop.it
Using social media for business marketing is not the only reason to embrace social platforms for commercial reasons. Social media is also a great tool to use for search engine optimisation (SEO). What is SEO? SEO, or search engine optimisation, is the process digital marketers use to encourage organic traffic online to a particular website. It requires having your website and content appearing high in search engine results, and it doesn’t involve payment for this to the search engines. SEO requires the clever and strategic use of various techniques, tactics and tools to increase the number of visitors to a website. This is done by affecting a placement of high ranking in search results. Since the majority of internet users conduct searches online and rarely look beyond the first page of results given, it is crucial for businesses to be on page one of their search result in order to be seen by the highest number of online users. The higher a website ranks in search engine results, the more likely it will be visited by users – it’s that simple. By undertaking search engine optimisation, a website is more accessible to a search engine and to end users –more info

The importance of storytelling and how social media can help - Adam Houlahan

The importance of storytelling and how social media can help - Adam Houlahan | Blogging, Social Media & Tools | Scoop.it
Human beings love stories. We tell and listen to them every single day. Think about your conversations – on the phone, over a coffee, at the dinner table, in bed at night with your significant other. Think about your leisure: watching television or a movie, going to the theatre, listening to radio chat programs, watching the news and reading books. We are all held captive and entertained by stories of all kinds. They are the way in which we humans communicate and we connect with each other. Stories are an intrinsic part of culture and society. Through stories we define our values, dreams, opinions and desires. Humans have been telling stories since antiquity. Oral stories have been passed down the generations and after the advent of writing, they were written down. Anthropologists believe that storytelling likely originated as a way to calm fears and to excuse failures, as well as sharing tales of heroic deeds and influencing others. The oldest known surviving tale from antiquity is the epic of Sumerian King Gilgamesh, and from there followed myths, legends, fairy tales and other stories that reflect the wisdom, experiences, knowledge and beliefs of those who originated them. What is social storytelling?more info

Promote your small business locally on social media - Adam Houlahan

Promote your small business locally on social media - Adam Houlahan | Blogging, Social Media & Tools | Scoop.it
While it’s certainly true that, thanks to the internet, even the smallest business can be a global contender, many small businesses have their focus on local markets. When local consumers can find you online, your business can grow a loyal customer base – and let’s face it, many of us prefer to support local businesses when we can. One way to achieve this is via local search engine optimisation – making a small investment in digital marketing go a long way. And one of the most cost-effective ways to promote your business on the internet is through clever social media marketing. Why local? According to market research, more than 80 per cent of consumers use the internet to source local businesses – and to compete, a local business needs online visibility. Buying locally, or using a local service provider, saves money and is highly convenient. While there are numerous ways to affect great search engine optimisation results, one of the easiest and cleverest ways to enhance your overall digital marketing strategy is to take advantage of social media marketing. Social media is a fantastic way to spread the message about your business, brand and website. Google+, Facebook and LinkedIn, formore info
