(From the article): Writing your latest blog post and hitting publish is just the beginning when it comes to growing your subscription base.

If you truly want to gain the attention of your target audience (and Google), then you will need to spend time promoting your content in multiple locations.

 

While there are many different ways to go about promoting your blog, I am going to focus on what I have found to be the most effective.

Over the years I have compiled a detailed list of where, how and when to promote your latest blog post.

Unless your job is in marketing or sales - the following holds true:


"The secret to social media success is to focus on attracting a small number of people with whom you actually wish to interact. The more you think of your “followers” as actual people, the closer you will come to using social media in a highly powerful manner."

Give mobile marketing a 'push' [Infographic] | Responsys New School Marketing Blog

Give mobile marketing a 'push' [Infographic] | Responsys New School Marketing Blog | SMB Success | Scoop.it

Responsys recently commissioned a mobile marketing survey of 1,200 U.S. consumers and found that 68 percent of consumers who have downloaded apps, have enabled the push notifications. Among younger consumers (18-34 year olds), it’s nearly 80 percent. As you’ll see in the infographic below, push is a channel that marketers should not be ignoring.

 

What makes push such an interesting marketing vehicle is that while it’s primarily used today for interacting with consumers via smartphones and tablets, push can be applied to any device that’s equipped with an app. As Responsys’ SVP of Emerging Channels Michael Della Penna discussed in aprevious blog post, by 2020, there will be 75 billion devices connected to the “Internet of Things.” In this scenario, push emerges as an important technology that will enable marketers to expand the reach of their communications.

 

The catch of course is that marketers must prioritize the customer experience – and their preferences – above all else. A sure fire way to sour a customer relationship is to send an unwanted or irrelevant push notification to a highly personal device, like a smart watch. Smart marketers will get a head start on this future reality by understanding how to orchestrate push with other marketing channels and optimize the holistic customer experience.

Study results show that 68% of app owners, use "push" notifications. However, it is unclear if that usage rate is related to "why" they downloaded the #app. The reported findings also suggest a strong #crosschannel aspect to #mobile message usage.

malek's curator insight, February 6, 2014 8:57 AM

Why Push alerts?

Push alerts will grow in importance as a channel for applications to communicate with and re-engage users.

Let me state that in theory, push notifications seem elegant, a way to prompt a mobile user at the right place, at the right time, regarding the right piece of information

Ray Fowler's curator insight, February 7, 2014 2:30 AM

The "Internet of things" has radically changed the way we work, think and play and everything is only an app away. Digital interaction is now 24/7
