I selected this article from Curatti written by John Jantsch because he explains not only the importance of an SEO strategy, but also how it has changed.

 

SEO is not about tricking Google search, but delivering relevant and original content.

 

How to Understand New Search Engine Marketing Methods

 

Your business can achieve improved search engine rankings and subscribers with attractive content. I agree that understanding how methods are done today can help you get seen online.

 

Jantsch explains both the website elements and SEO editorial plan that affect search ranking.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • A website needs to be seen as a marketing tool. Not only does it need an SEO backbone, but also appeal to the customer journey or experience.

 

  • Effective content is more about being relevant that eloquent. It should answer your audience's biggest questions or concerns.

 

  • Use keyword research not only to optimize your content, but to also learn more about your customers. Find out what they are searching for and why.

I selected this article from Curatti written by Mark Preston because he explains the meaning of blogging SEO, and how this applies to visibility.

 

Useful tips that will greatly improve your business content strategy.

 

How Your Blog Can Rank High on Google

 

Your business or personal blog can be used to attract a targeted audience for better search engine rankings. I agree that understanding how this process works will enable you to produce better content that Google will take notice of.

 

Preston explains how your social network and shares can build a strong presence online.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • A blog strategy focused on SEO is different from inbound marketing. The results are much slower with the latter and focus only on the website.

 

  • Bloggers who post at least 15 times a month may receive the most traffic, but not the most in quality. It is better focus on one outstanding piece per week.

 

  • The length of a blog post should be as long as it needs to be depending on the topic. This can range anywhere from 300 words to 5,000 words.

I selected this article from Curatti written by Aliona Tarankova because it explains the power and growth of social media and how it will evolve.

 

Social networks continue to be a powerful branding tool.

 

The History and Growth Behind Social Media

 

There are still only 31 percent of the world's population who are engaging in social networks. That means there is still a lot more room for growth -- especially in countries that are not as prolific as North America and Europe.

 

Tarankova provides the history of social media and what the future will look like worldwide. Internet access plays a big role in access as well as how developed a country is.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Marketing budgets have grown over just the last two years. The numbers could double in five years as social media plays a larger role in more places.

 

  • There are around 400 million people who have stopped using their social accounts. This is a short term problem and is a part of how the system works.

 

  • Over the last few years social media usage has slowed down. But this has not impacted the importance of having a marketing strategy in place.

Understanding Private Messaging in Customer Service

 

Technology has affected the way we approach brands and businesses. I agree that it's important to understand that not all questions are presented publicly on social media.

 

Fabrizio shows explains the current state of social customer service through private messages.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • The new approach of communicating with your customers privately should be introduced slowly. This will help them transition from just relying on making comments publicly on social media.

 

  • Speed up your response times with the use of integrated AI and bots. This is turn improves customer satisfaction as long as they do not know it is not an actual human who is replying to them.

 

  • Set up a customized welcome message on Twitter when they write a DM. Customers also have the option now of selecting from a multiple choice menu.

You don't need to know a celebrity to attract more customers to your business online.

In order to attract more customers for your brand you need trusted recommendations. I agree that you can accomplish this by building relationships with those who have a strong following and higher engagement rates.

 

Barker goes over how micro-influencers can help improve your marketing strategy.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • A customer will be more like to trust a micro-influencer than a regular connection on social media. Building a relationship with them can help increase your conversion rates.

 

  • Mid-level leaders are perceived to be more knowledgable. Your product recommendations can go a lot farther when they mention your brand.

 

  • An increase in the number of followers can cause a decrease in the number of likes for posts on Facebook. Fewer, high-quality connections are better for engagement.

Caruso goes over how the customer experience methods works and how this can help your business gain a competitive advantage.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Marketing, discovery and messaging set the tone for the B2B customer’s expectation. This is then portrayed and measured against the competition and allows you to set the bar high.

 

  • A great experience leads to more sales, especially when backed with real execution. This builds value in your customer's spending.

 

  • You can avoid having your customer become an after thought through the right focus and action. A lack of priority equals a lack of results.

Is Your Marketing Strategy Generating New Business?

 

It's important to get an accurate assessment of your social media marketing. I agree that B2B's need to back up their claims with hard data in order to win over their clients.

 

Kramer shows how to effectively gather the right information and metrics in order to build a solid marketing profile.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Your conversions are an important element into showing how well your social networks are attracting new leads. Take a look at the qualified leads these channels are delivering as well as the closed deals because of these.

 

  • It's more important to have social shares than engagement. That is because people don't often engage with content -- but sharing displays its relevancy.

 

  • Two way communication or feedback is a good sign that your community is interested in your content. You need to be building the right kind of audience who will want to buy your product or service.

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Consider keyword metrics like search volume and conversion rates. Ask yourself things like; how many people use the keyword ”HP laptop discounts” and buy HP laptops?

 

  • The main goal of great content is to grab the reader's attention. Understanding their needs is essential, but you must also dig deeper and find our more about buyer behavior.

I selected this article from Curatti written by Shane Barker because he explains how to improve your business's local ranking in search.

 

Useful tactics that will greatly improve your SEO strategy.

 

How to Improve Your Link Profile

 

There are many different factors that can affect SEO ranking. I agree that understanding a link profile will help your local business get seen online.

 

Barker provides great insights on how your link profile can bring leads to your website.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • The quality of links will affect your overall profile. If you have high authority websites linking to yours then this can greatly improve your ranking.

 

  • Make sure your anchor text is relevant to your topic. Avoid keyword stuffing and instead use a more natural approach in your pages and posts.

 

  • Build relationships with your local customers. Create regular interactions with them online and offline and include their testimonials.

I selected this article from Curatti written by John Jantsch because it provides insight into how to achieve your goals in generating new clients.

 

Lead funnels are great, but you still need a client generation system in place.

 

Why Your Business Is Not Experiencing Enough Sales

 

Building a profitable company takes several marketing methods in order to be truly effective. I agree that client lead generation is an essential part of growing your bottom line.

 

Jantsch explains why these techniques are important to attract the most leads and conversions.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • You don't just want leads -- you want customers. You need  steady flow of the right people targeted for your business niche, not just a large influx of prospects.

 

  • Build a system that generates a consistent appointments -- at least 10 to 12. Make sure these are qualified leads who are interested in what you have to offer.

 

  • Create valuable content that will resonate with your audience. This is the workhorse for your lead generation system.
