Let Social Media Market Your Brand

reply

The marketing world has changed significantly in the past few years. If you are not employing social media to market your brand, your business may be suffering. This article explains some of the steps you should take in order to let social media help market your brand.




First things first: create a website. Whether you pay for a ".com" website with just the title of your business or brand before it, or you make use of a website that you can create for free, make sure the title of your business or brand is apparent and recognizable in the URL. If you want to increase exposure of your brand, it is important that it is visible in the most obvious sense.




A great way to increase brand recognition for your business is by starting a blog. Again, make sure the name of your business or brand is in the title of this blog, so that readers associate the blog with your business. You can employ this social media marketing tool to track your audience. The answer to who is reading your blog could also be the answer to who your marketing should target.




Tweet. Twitter has become a very popular tool for social media marketing and it looks like it's here to stay. Tweets are like status updates, with a limited amount of characters for each, keeping the posts short and sweet. You can make use of this social media website to get promotional messages out into the world wide web, further increasing the exposure of your brand.




While websites such as Twitter and Facebook may appear to only be for person-to-person connection, they can be used for so much more. Join Facebook and you can create a page for your business that fans, patrons, users or "friends" can "like". Using a tool like Facebook to increase brand recognition is a proven strategy that has helped many businesses.




Facebook and Twitter are not the only social media websites that you can use to market your brand. If your business is not yet listed on Google and Yelp, list them. If they are, claim them so that you can manage the information that is being shared about your ...

Learning How Not to Use SEO

reply

In order to drive consistent traffic to your site, it is important to make sure it receives a high ranking on the major search engines. There are many techniques that can be used to increase your ranking, some which are very effective, and many more which are not. This article will help you avoid some of the common pitfalls in SEO marketing.




The most important thing to do is make sure your content has value to your potential customer. An old tool was to stuff a web page full of meaningless keywords, just to increase rankings. Search engine robots have gotten smart to this technique, and this keyword-stuffing can now get your page a lower ranking, or even deindexed completely. Obviously this is not what you want, so make the effort to get unique, meaningful content for your site. In the end, not only will this get you a higher search engine ranking, but your customers will enjoy your site more.




Another common pitfall is to pay people specifically to link your page or drive traffic to your site. So called "link farms"� will do nothing for your ranking as the search engines will simply mark these links as invalid. Paying for traffic is a waste of money for most people, as profiting through these services is a whole other profession with its own unique rules and challenges. The people who click are being paid very small amounts to do so, and are bombarded by so much advertising that it is extremely difficult to get your message through.




Another group you should be cautious to pay for services are "SEO experts."� The internet is full of scammers, and you need to make sure that anyone you pay for work like this is legitimate. Make sure you check their references, and take a look at their previous client list to see how well their work has actually succeeded. SEO is a difficult task, and getting help from someone with experience is not a bad idea, but you definitely need to be sure you will be getting what you pay for.




Also important is to make sure your site is not seen as spam by potential users, as well as the search engine robots. Many people use a spam technique to try and create links back to their web page by entering it every forum or free link posting they can find. It is a good idea to use forums to promote your site, but you need to make sure the forum's terms allows for links in your signat...

Increasing Your Profits Using Internet Marketing

reply

While it is not always possible to quit your day job, or at least not right away, internet marketing can be a great way to generate some extra income. In a tough economy every source of income should be explored, as traditional jobs can be very volatile and unrewarding. By using some basic techniques you can create an online income source that you can rely on to help you through tough times.




The first step is creating a great website. However, that doesn't mean your site has to be complicated or expensive. In fact, a simple, clean site that is easy to navigate will serve you much better. Keeping things simple will be less expensive for you, and refreshing to your customers. That doesn't mean you should skimp on great content, just that the content should be easy to find and easy to view. Have a close friend you can trust preview your website to get an idea of what a potential viewer sees when they first visit your site.




Especially if you are looking to earn some money on a budget, SEO is extremely important for your site. SEO stands for search engine optimization, and includes all of your efforts to improve your rankings on the major search engines. Do your research and remember that this is an ever-changing field. Don't feel you need to hire an expensive guru to do your optimization for you. All you need to do is follow some basic rules and fill your site with meaningful, targeted content.




Consumers have developed an extremely accurate bull detector, so outlandish claims about your product may net you a few customers, but it is not really worth the effort. Besides which, the internet is full of people who are far more experienced at making a quick buck than you are, and you are unlikely to see any real success trying to pull one over on people. Worse, you will ruin your online reputation which will damage your ability to market an authentic product in the future.




Once you start getting a few customers it is important to listen to anything you have to say. Repeat business is extremely valuable, and even better, a satisfied customer can turn into multiple customers through word-of-mouth promotion. If a customer lets you know about an issue, or even just wants to ask a question about your product, then it is in your best interest to help them. The i...




Using internet marketing can be a great way to make a small income, but only if you're prepared to do it right. You need to do you...

Improve Your Article Quality With These Tips

reply

Article marketing can be an amazinginly powerful tool, but it all comes down to the quality of the articles that you have. They need to be at a high enough caliber that people are engaged in them and respect your thoughts and abilities. To get there, use the tips below when developing new articles.




When writing new articles, keep to your niche and aim for 500 to 1,000 words. Article marketing is all about building trust through thought leadership, and if you publish content that you are insecure on, especially content outside of your niche, it can have the opposite effect than you are looking for. People may wonder about the relevance of your overall content to their needs and your capability to be a professional resource for them. As well, keeping your article lengths to between 500 and 1,000 words helps guarantee that your article is long enough to hold value for the reader, while short enough to perform well in the multi-focused, fast-paced world of the Internet.




Write compelling titles and introductory paragraphs. As mentioned, the Internet is a fast-paced, highly competitive medium, where reader interest can be as quick as a mouse click. You only have a few seconds to make an impression in any article you write, so you need to grab it in your title and the first few sentences of your introduction. If you don't engage your readers here, the chances are they will surf away from your content within just a few seconds. Keep your title and introduction relevant (it's important for search engine optimization), but don't be afraid to push the envelope.




Use short paragraphs and small words. This is not a statement on the education level of your readers, this is a statement on the medium itself. The Internet performs the best when content is easy to read and quick to digest. There are many reasons for this. Screens are harder to read for extended periods than paper. The screen only lets you see so much content at any given time. It's an image-driven medium that prefers soundbyte-like sentence structures than long-form writing. The list goes on. No matter what reason, make it easy for your readers to enjoy your writing. Keep it simple.




Re-read your work; never publish with spelling and grammar errors. Yes, everyone has a spelling mistake every once in a while, but...

A good business person will seize the opportunity to learn something. This is all part and parcel of being in business and stuff happens, so go with the flow and keep moving.

There are all kinds of situations in which you can see your site stats are not good but without a clue about it. This is not the end of the world and can be addressed and corrected.

Focus on what you have to do each day and then don't worry about the rest of it. There are things to totally stay away from and others you shouldn't worry about.

Finding the Ideal Domain Name Can Be Easy

reply

Never rush out and register a domain name until you realize what your business goals are. If you want to build a strong business, then learn about all you can accomplish with the right name. You do want to avoid creating a negative impression with the domain. If you have never looked at a domain in that way, then you should read the following and learn.


How easy or hard you make it on your audience to remember the name of your site will help or hurt you. In tune with that strategy, make your domains easy to spell and avoid difficult vowel or consonant patterns or letters that follow each other that can cause confusion. Tongue twisters are out as are any words that form a different and possibly embarrassing meaning when strung together. Pay attention when you are registering your domain, and you would think everybody does but that is not the case. So take your time when looking for your domain name and remember what you have read here today.


Try to be very distinctive with the name you choose because that matters online. There are exceptions to that general rule of course such as if you want to use a keyword phrase. Keywords in domains is not as powerful as it used to be, so the importance is debatable. There are lots of ways to brand your business, and if that's you then the domain plays an important role. In the end you are the one who has to decide your goals and what is the smartest thing to do. So there are many things to take into account including how memorable your name will be.


The domain that gives a good idea about the site is fine as well as the opposite which goes for awareness of your brand. They are numerous and have come and gone over the years. The fact that so many IM marketers fail could be related to insufficient thinking before and after they get started. On the other hand, even domains that are strictly keyword phrases can be successfully branded. No matter what your domain is, if the content and information is first class, then that can counter a terrible domain name. Locating a domain name for your online or off-line business is actually very easy as you can now see. Of course you need to do more research in this area as there's more to learn. It is best if you avoided being lazy about this unless you truly don't care about your business. So it is important to know that your domain has more of an impact on your potential visitors than what you may have thought. It is our sincere hope that you will choose the right domain to help you get an edge on the competition and succeed with your business.
