Why Big Internet Marketing Ideas Will Rule - New Media Leaders

Why Big Internet Marketing Ideas Will Rule - New Media Leaders | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it
Christo is an artist whose ideas change hardened skeptics. How do we lucky few Internet marketers become Christo? How can our ideas slouch toward BIGNESS?
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Join New Media Leaders
When my friend Phil Buckley asked me to join his new age Internet marketing think tank - New Media Leaders - my first thought was COOL!.

New Media Leaders (or as Iike to think of us New Riders of the Purple Sage) Include:

@1918 Phil Buckley - Best SEO I know.
@ MarkTraphagen - Recognized G+ Expert around the world.

@CommsNinja Amy Lewis - Community Evangelist for Cisco

@ScentTrail (me) - Atlantic BT Marketing Director & Content Marketer

Phil's idea, one I agree with and embrace, is the sum of our Internet marketing parts is greater than the whole.


My first post to this unique collective is Why Big Internet Marketing Ideas Will Rule:

Quick Web Writing Lesson - Curagami

Quick Web Writing Lesson - Curagami | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Web Copy
Writing web copy that wins hearts and minds is easier and harder than you think. Easier because tiny changes make huge differences in customer engagement and your website's ability to convert. Harder because learning to slow down and think about things like empathy, using OPW (Other People's Words) and the right way to use acronyms takes practice, discipline and courage. 

Here are the tips we share on Curagami:

  • Use OPW (Other People’s Words) – Trusted sources or industry gurus make excellent sources
  • Use Customer Words – Customers know you listen when they see features of User Generated Content (UGC)
  • Touch the Universal – R&D is hard, takes time and money is a “universal truth.”
  • Cliches – Cliches are another “truth” you can turn in your favor
  • Empathy Words – Use words that create a sense of empathy between YOU and whoever is reading your copy words such as “collaborate,” “teamed with” and “love.”
  • Acronyms – Acronyms can convey industry knowledge, but be sure to explain fully the first time you use an acronym
