janlgordon's curator insight, March 22, 5:15 PM

I selected this article from Curatti written by Ashley Faulkes because it explains the process of running a blog and then turning it into a business.

 

The story of how one blogger became a businessman.

 

Going From Blogger to Business Owner

 

Starting a blog can involve a lot of learning curves along the way. I agree that content marketers need to fully understand digital marketing in order to be successful in business.

 

Faulkes provides his own perspective on what it takes to run a successful blogging business.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Start by learning as much as you can from leading blogging experts. Then brush up on your digital marketing skills in areas like social media, SEO, and email marketing.

 

  • It is not enough to just have a blog. Your business needs to be running your content, not the other way around. If you lack skills you just need to learn more.

 

  • When attending a conference hang out with a few like-minded individuals who will push you to grow. Read as much as you can about the topic of blogging for business.

How to Lead Versus Manage, to Improve Your Team's Success

lee matthews's curator insight, March 15, 6:51 AM
This article talks about how to lead versus how to manage, and how this could improve your teams success. This I feel is paramount when looking at how your organisation can improve and in turn, engage its staff for beyond expected outcomes that are safe and profitable. This statement can be particularly relevant to the ohs professional who can so often be viewed as the "bad guy" or " rule enforcer". I choose this article because it highlights that there does not have to be a black and white approach to leadership as historically has been the case. That accountability can be the onus of the individual worker and that an atmosphere of support can be created by management or indeed the relevant authority, so that self worth and achievement are the results. Reading and sharing articles like this make me happy to know that there is change coming through looking at not only, our processes but also our historical point of view around management in our ever evolving workplaces. 5yrs from now who knows what the workplace will be like.... how exciting

45 Customer Focused Social Media Post Ideas | Business Support | Scoop.it


A successful business knows and interacts with its customer base. That may mean you have lots of face to face time with customers in a brick-and-mortar store front, but in our age of digital relationships, it also means you need to be interacting with your customers online. This happens by building a strong brand, having a stellar website, and through your presence on social media. Your business should enjoy social media, embrace it, and view it as a valuable (and free!!) marketing tool.

The Importance Quality Metrics for More Sales

Via janlgordon

janlgordon's curator insight, March 20, 11:42 PM

I selected this article from Curatti written by Robert Caruso because it explains the importance of quality metrics when measuring the results of your business's marketing efforts.

 

Understanding the outcome of your marketing strategies can help improve your conversion rates.

 

Measuring for Business Success

 

You can be successful generating more sales with the right metrics in place. I agree that many businesses fail to understand the full scope of their activities online.

 

Caruso explains what quality metrics look like and how this can affect your bottom line.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • When it comes to taking a look at digital marketing your metrics should look at the quality rather than the quantity. This will then determine your investment of time, money, and resources.

 

  • You can have a false sense of success by focusing on vanity metrics, which relies on data from activities rather than certain activities. This provides very little actionable data to measure.

 

  • If you want to increase your sales then you need to dive deeper into actionable activity such as conversion rates, time spent on your website, cost per lead, ect.

Edan Joy Gelt's curator insight, March 22, 11:53 PM

What an intuitive piece about quality versus quantity.  I've actually had clients that have bought "likes" and "followers" thinking that the more followers, the better they appear as a business (power of social psychology). This fake dilution actually depletes their efforts in the social channel for a small, temporary illusion of grandeur.  The importance of a quality audience being offered quality content is what translates to the bottom line.  Likes, clicks and follows are not reflective of NOI.

Content Strategy: Think Bigger With the Mega Post

Content Strategy: Think Bigger With the Mega Post | Business Support | Scoop.it

When it comes to content strategy, a lot has been said about the importance of keeping a steady stream of fresh content flowing through your distribution channels. Marketers have listened. According to the Content Marketing Institute (CMI), 76 percent of content marketers produced more content in 2016 than they did in 2015. That content stream will only increase in 2017.


This trend has been with us for years. According to an October 2016 TrackMaven blogging report:


Over the last five years, the average number of blog posts published per brand per month increased by 800 percent. However, over the same time the average number of social shares per post (from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest) decreased by 89 percent....

I selected this article from Curatti written by Katherine Crayon
 because it shows you how your website design can impact your business sales.

 

The look of your eCommerce website directly affects your business's revenue.

 

Attract More Customers with a Better Website Design

 

To convert your leads into sales your website needs to immediately attract visitors. I agree that both optimization and design work together to achieve this goal.

 

Crayon explains 10 different ways your eCommerce business can make improvements to your website.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • You can track down your conversion problems by conducting a conversion audit. It is well worth the investment in order to find out where the holes are in your website.

 

  • A slow loading speed will drive prospects away. Make sure all of your pages load quickly and that it is easy for your visitors to find your products.

 

  • People use various devices to access websites. Find out which ones your visitors use including clicks and scrolling activity.

When marketers develop their social and mobile strategies -- which we strongly encourage you to do, if you haven't already -- these are important questions to ask. After all, you want to reach the right audience. So in addition to determining your buyer personas, you have to know where to find them. Not all of them are going to be using Instagram, for example.


Luckily, our friends at Tracx compiled all of that information into a handy infographic that breaks down the state of social media demographics -- who's using which social network, and for what.


With this information, figuring out how to best reach your personas on social media doesn't have to be such a daunting task. So read on, and start distributing your content in the right places....
