The email content, on the other hand, is something you're always going to have to write. So here are 4 easy content hacks to give your email an extra edge. Read more: click image or title.

Four marketing mega trends nobody's talking about | Mark W Schaefer | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

This is the time of year people post their prognostications for the next year. The predictions will be … predictable: More video! More Snapchat! More podcasts!

 

Well, OK. It’s pretty easy to make a prediction based on what’s already happening. But there are less obvious tectonic forces rumbling through our marketplace. Here’s a view of some of the underlying shifts, the marketing mega trends, you need be considering in 2017:

3 ingredients to make your contents go viral | Internet Presence | Scoop.it
A guide to creating shareable, addictive and link-worthy viral content that appeals to different age groups and genders.

The web is a crowded and busy place flooding us with information every second of every day. Sometimes we skim and skip around this intricate thicket of articles, images, videos and infographics without paying too much attention to them.

And sometimes we stumble upon something so amazing we click the “share” button before we get to blink. In the second situation, we have just become a small wheel in the complex machinery that turns a simple piece of content into a viral one.

A Non-Designer's Guide to Creating Engaging Images for Social Media

A Non-Designer's Guide to Creating Engaging Images for Social Media | Internet Presence | Scoop.it
Learn how to create engaging images for all of your social media pages and profiles - no previous design skills necessary!

A great social media marketer today and an awesome advertiser in the 1960s have much in common.

David Ogilvy, the father of advertising, was famous for spending an inordinate amount of time on headlines. Why? Because that’s the line that people read the most, so it mattered a lot.

Ogilvy was a master at stuff like this — prioritizing what was really important.

If he lived through the age of social media, I’m fairly certain Ogilvy would say something like:

On the average, many more people engage with images as read the copy in social media posts. When you have crafted your social media image, you have spent eighty cents out of your dollar.

Images have never been more important in social. They’re the key to driving greater online engagement, much like a great headline in advertising.

The only issue here is that if, like me, you aren’t über-skilled in graphic design, creating eye-catching engaging images can be difficult. So how can non-designers like me still create incredible images for social media? One way is by learning simple, repeatable design principles.

Here are 3 key design principles that will help you create engaging social images every time! Read more: click image or title.

An easy-to-use formula for writing titles and headlines people can't help but click.

It's one thing to write great content, but it's another thing to get it read and ranked -- which is where nailing the title comes in. 

Titles are what sell the content. They represent it in search engines, in email, and on social media. It's no surprise, then, that one of the most common questions we get is around crafting titles.

How long should my headline be? What words should I use? What words should I avoid? Should I optimize it for search or social? Or both? 

Luckily, we've come up with a simple formula for writing catchy headlines and blog titles that you can reference from here on out. So let's just dive right in, shall we? Read more: click image or title.

10 Simple Ways To Think About Content Marketing

10 Simple Ways To Think About Content Marketing | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

Content marketing is not as complex and complicated as we make it be.

You don’t have to be an Einstein to be successful. Einstein himself said, “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”

So, let’s talk about a simple content marketing strategy!

Many marketers and sales professionals still struggle with the concept of modern marketing. They struggle with social media profiles, improving their reputation currency, and using content to develop an audience – so the by-product of all of these actions is more sales and higher value sales.

How to Successfully Promote Your Blog

How to Successfully Promote Your Blog | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

Many influencers talk about the 80/20 rule: you should spend 20% of your time creating content and 80% of your time promoting it. 

Although I think this ratio really depends on your job, needs and company, it does capture one thing: if you write amazing content but don’t shout out your did so, no one will hear you. And as far as promoting your blog goes, you can pick and choose on the list above the items that make most sense to your company. If for instance you work for a very technical B2B company and your target audience is above 50 years old, you might want to consider investing in LinkedIn rather than Facebook, leverage influencers and invest time in guest blogging. It all really depends on your audience, where they are and what they care about. There is one very important point I’d like to add to this infographic: it’s not content repurposing (which I thing is one of the leanest way to do content marketing, it saves an incredible amount of time), it’s content recycling.

How I Helped Polar Get to 40M+ Pageviews

How I Helped Polar Get to 40M+ Pageviews | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

http://snip.ly/bl2W


Polar recently got acquired by Google just two years after launch. Here's how I pitched it to the press and got it from 0 to 40 million pageviews monthly.

So you finally put the finishing touches on your website and pushed it live. Damn, it looks so good! Your business is now ready to be shown to the world. Yet nobody is coming.

Or, you push it live and get a few hundred signups in the first hour. This is because you got your stuff together with the press and received a few articles written about your business at launch. So you pitch to more media and got to 1M pageviews in the first month.

Is it hard? Sure. But you can do this. You do not need to hire PR firms to help. I did not.

I’ve done PR for six years on my own and have gotten 1,298 stories written about things I’ve pitched. Quite recently, I got a startup acquired by Google in two years after founding by just pitching to the press.

Before I tell you the story of how I did this I want you to remember one thing (if it’s the only thing you remember from this article): Whenever you pitch anything to media make sure to provide valuable content related to journalist’s beat. Notice the bold and underline.

Valuable content – that’s where it’s at, it will either make or break your pitch and that is what the press will respond to the most.

To become world-class (the top 5%) takes only about a month of focused, intentional work.

 

Breaking through those extra four percentile points to become a true master copywriter (the top 1%) will take you years, if not decades, of practice and dedication.

 

However, unless your entire career is dedicated to copywriting, all that effort is unnecessary. If you can break out of the realm of good copywriting and become great, the extra four percentage points are simply not needed to run a successful business.

4 Simple Ways to 10x Your Content and Drive More Traffic | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

If you want to create content that hits page one and quickly drive more traffic to your site, it must be at least 10 times the value of anything else.

The process of creating content for your website in hopes of attracting a wave of traffic has changed in recent years.

In the past you’d be able to throw up a simple 500-word article onto your blog and get a stream of traffic. As long as it provided some semblance of value and had a few keywords thrown in, it was good enough. Ah the good ol’ days!

Try doing that today and watch that piece of content be buried on the 800th page of Google’s search results.

In today’s race to produce content that hits the front page of the Google search results, your content must be more than stellar. It must be AT LEAST 10 times the value anyone’s looking for if you want it to hit the front page of Google, attract traffic, shares, and mentions.

The process of upgrading Visme started back in March of 2015. After eight months and thousands of man hours, we can comfortably say the new Visme is easier to use and all around more refined. It addresses over 30 user requests, incorporates new features and provides users with a much smoother experience.

When comparing the new Visme to our legacy version, users have reported an improvement of over 50% in productivity and a noticeable reduction in friction in their work flow.

If you are an existing user, you will not see any cosmetic changes in the Visme interface, but a cumulation of numerous small refinements (and new features) which will provide a smoother workflow and improve the overall user experience in comparison with the existing version.

What Does An Online Business Look Like Today? - The SiteSell Blog

What Does An Online Business Look Like Today? - The SiteSell Blog | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

Starting an online business today isn’t like how it was when the Internet was young and new. Find out what it takes.


Are you familiar with the California Gold Rush? Back in 1848, James Marshall found gold at Sutter’s Mill, and within a year there were hundreds of thousands of miners flocking to California to pan every river, stream and creek-bed for a handful of those valuable nuggets.

The promise of “free money” brought in settlers by covered wagon or sailing vessels, and since there wasn’t yet an established State or government, there were no laws or property rights.

But quickly, things changed. Government was formed, a constitution drafted, and within months the new state of California was formed. Legislation and regulation was put into place, and the ‘rush’ evolved into a more long-term period of resource mining.

That’s exactly how the early days of the Internet looked.

There was no legislation, no government… just people jumping in and taking advantage of the situation. While simply being first didn’t guarantee success (which we saw clearly with the Gold Rush, where discoverer James Marshall died poor and bankrupt years later), being first certainly made a lot of things easier.

As services like Web Crawler and Alta Vista developed databases and search capability for the Internet, being among the first to create a website and online business meant there was little to no competition.

If you wanted an online business back in the 1990’s, it was relatively easy to put up a webpage or two that offered a product or service, and achieve some real success.

But it’s not like that anymore. Read more: click image or title.

A Simple Plan for Writing One Powerful Piece of Online Content per Week - Copyblogger | Internet Presence | Scoop.it
Consistently good content creation is the backbone of online business. But how can you make that happen week in and week out to build your business?
Quality over quantity

If you believe Jon Morrow (and who doesn’t?), you know that writing one epic post per week is a better long-term strategy than writing mediocre content every day.

That’s what you’re aiming for in your start here: one weekly post that will attract attention, establish your authority, and encourage people to share your information.

And keep in mind, Brian Clark built Copyblogger.com by writing two posts per week in the beginning.

It all starts on morning one.

13 Quick Tricks to Drive Traffic to Your Blog in Minutes

13 Quick Tricks to Drive Traffic to Your Blog in Minutes | Internet Presence | Scoop.it
The secret to attracting more traffic is doing what others are not doing. This post offers 13 quick tricks to drive traffic to your blog in minutes.

It happens to the best of bloggers.

You produce stellar content that’s helpful and easy to read.

You even publish a blog post a week – or more – to prove you’re serious about blogging.

You genuinely care about your audience.

But sometimes, despite doing everything by the book, the traffic’s a dud.

That’s when the questions start – am I good enough to be doing this? Heck, does blogging even work as a legitimate business model? Am I wasting my time?

If that’s you, let me clear the air by quoting Jon Morrow, “Each and every one of us decides who we are. No, you may not be ready to be a popular blogger now, but you can become ready.”

Blogging works. We’ve seen a lot of proof around us for that. The problem is not blogging; it is doing things that don’t yield trust or traffic to your blog.

You see, a decade ago you could crank out a 300-word piece and get more content published, left, right and center. In those days, just having something published meant you could attract huge traffic. Because not many were doing it.

Gradually, the world caught up and more people started putting out better content. Longer, more in depth, more useful content. Bloggers started calling it “epic posts”.

Today, most of the world has caught up with “epic”. It’s no longer a differential point. It’s a given.

The secret to attracting more traffic is doing what others are not doing, or unwilling to do yet.

And what if I told you it could be done in under 30 minutes?

To make it easier for you, I have compiled a list of 13 quick tricks to drive traffic to your blog in minutes:
