Brian is a great web marketer and one of the POWER users of Scoop.it. Here is a great comment he left on Curagami about this post:
Marty I agree, I never promote my Scoopit homepage as it has no real value for my visitor. My Google analytics show I get very few visitors to the homepage which makes since because most visitors to Scoop.it are not members so can’t follow us via Scoop.it, but they are following other ways because 48% of them are return visitors.
Looking further into the analytics not many go to the topic homepage either, so I’m testing new ways within my marketing strategy for Scoop.it to engage.
Eg. Pop up and slide up call-to-actions as seen on my hhttp://www.scoop.it/t/marketinghits topic. This pop up also show when someone is coming to a shared post on my topic not just the homepage. Right now it a newsletter sign up, I’m thinking of doing polls, follow me, and maybe even a context are two. On my newsletter sign up is see a 1.4 ctr%
It sure would be nice to have some customization options for the homepage.
** Brian is the MASTER of organization. Check out his Scoop.it presentation (@Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.com ). That is a PR6 webpage using OPT (Other People's Templates) and tool (so impressive). Team at Scoop.it really listens to Brian because he has accomplished a lot with their tool. The Scoop.it team is responsive in general, so, thanks to BY and others, we may get a "homepage" we can use.
