Local Business Wanting Better Page Ranking to Attract Local Customers

Featured

Getting your site ranked up high on the search engines is tougher if you have a lot of competition. Unless you stand head and shoulders above your competition, you are likely to be way down on the first page or even on page two of the rankings. It is tough to compete in some markets. If you are a niche seller, you might be able to get a top ranking without a lot of SEO help. Since I am in a really competitive market, I went to http://mikeyon.com/what-is-seo/ to see what he could do for me on a local level.

My problem was that I was offering a local real estate service, but a lot of national players were coming up before me on the search page results, even when doing a local search. That was not right at all. Continue reading

I Needed to Have More Fans and Plays

Featured

I have been posting my music to the Reverbnation website for a couple of years. I was slowly gaining fans, but my numbers were still bleak compared to others who started posting just recently. Some of the songs that I listened to were not that good either, at least not compared to what I do, and I knew that I had to do something different to get more fans and plays on the site. I was not sure how to do this though, so I did a search for buy Reverbnation plays. I figured there had to be a company out there that could help me with this, but I was surprised to see just how many there are. Continue reading

Buying Twitter Followers to Improve My Numbers

Featured

I know a lot of companies use Twitter to move their products, and I am no different in that respect. I don’t have a physical product though. Mine is simply a blog that I write every day. I make no money off of the people who read it, but I do make money from the advertisers who post on my blog page. Because of this, I knew that I had to build up my following on all social media sites. The one I had the most trouble with was Twitter, but then I found I could buy Twitter followers.

I had not used Twitter a lot up to that point. It was not because I didn’t like the platform, because I actually do now that I have used it a good bit. I just didn’t know enough about it. I knew that I had to show a loyal following already before others would take me serious there. It just made sense, because I would be the same way with someone I was going to follow.

Got a Job for an Album Cover

Featured

Popularity Contest Now On DatPiffI was sitting in the library today when this guy came up. I did not know who he was, but he knew me. I had been working for a guy who emcees parties around here. He wanted to buy datpiff views and promote his mix tapes, but he needed to have a cover to go on his mix tape. It was a simple job. I did it in about an hour and a half without any difficulty. I charged the guy very little. In fact he gave me thirty bucks and a twelve pack of craft beer. He tried to argue that Pabst Blue Ribbon was a craft beer, but that was not our deal and I got him to get me a 12 pack of some really great India Pale Ale from the grocery store on Walker Avenue, they have a huge selection of really good beer on sale there.

At any rate this guy liked the album cover, even though I did not think it was a very good design. Continue reading

Great Prices for Purchasing Followers for an Instagram Account

Featured

I am going to try to build a great Instagram account, because that is something that I have been assigned to do by my boss. At first, I am just going to be working with a fake account, and not an actual official account for the company that I work for. I think that it is best to start out this way. However, I want to try to buy instagram likes to inflate the perceived popularity of the account, and see what the effects of that are.

I am actually going to make a few different accounts, and post similar types of content on them, but vary some other variables, and see which one works out the best. Continue reading

Corporations on Social Media: Great for Consumers?

Featured

These days, companies really can’t afford not to have a social media presence. At least, that’s what they say, so I went looking to see whether I could find companies who had one. Did you know that LinkedIn has a Facebook page? That impressed me in a strange way. And of course, I was able to find behemoths like Walmart, category killers like Walgreens, and consultancies like mandrien on twitter.

Personally, I like that they’re all there. Not so much because, hey, I have a Facebook page or a Twitter account and this makes those companies Just Like Me. No, more because this means they care enough that if I wanted to talk to them, or even just was bothered enough by their service, or their competitors’, I feel like they would make a point of noticing my complaint or my interest.

It’s like complaining about a business on Yelp, but you often get even faster response times, from what I hear. For example, a friend of mine had some issue with a Walgreens pharmacy in her city. They must have had one of their customers’ phone numbers wrong, because they kept calling her whenever that other person’s prescription was ready. She doesn’t take any medication regularly, so this eventually got her annoyed enough that she mentioned it in a Tweet. Not one to Walgreens (she didn’t even know they were on Twitter), just one to her friends.

She told me that the company’s Twitter account sent her a Tweet within about 10 minutes and had the problem fixed for her later that day. It’s not remotely possible that that would happen just by writing a company anymore, is it? I don’t believe so. Heck, I was impressed that it happened at all.

If that’s the brave new frontier that companies are willing to broach when they come to Twitter and Facebook and other places that their customers hang out, I think it’s a great thing. We all deserve customer service like that, and I like to think that companies will only come to socialize with us this way if they’re prepared to give it!

Tips on Setting Up a Solid LinkedIn Profile

Featured

Social media is exploding, and LinkedIn is one of the best sites when it comes to making professional connections with others. However, many people aren’t sure how to set up their page to maximize the effect their profile can have. It is always a good idea to look at an example of how someone else has set up their page; it can help you to craft something, with your own spin, that is professional and noteworthy. The Rusty Solomon linkedin site is a great page to look at, both as an example of how to set up a Linkedin page and a good reference for consulting work.

In addition to using an example, remember that keywords are your best friend. Prior to filling out your page, think about what keywords are important to you and your business. Continue reading

Zillow could dominate Internet home searches | HeraldNet.com – Business

real estate website , is seeking to buy No. 2 Trulia for as much as $2 billion in cash and stock, according to people with knowledge of the matter. An agreement may be announced as soon as next week, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because the information is private. Talks are ongoing and may not lead to a deal. The companies help buyers and renters find information on homes, generating revenue by selling advertising and charging Realtors to place their listings prominently. Together Zillow and Trulia had more than 85 million unique visitors in June, accounting for about 89 percent of all traffic to the 15 most-visited real estate sites tracked by ComScore. A combination would make it hard for rivals to compete, said Steve Murray, president of Real Trends in Castle Rock, Colorado. It’s a blockbuster, said Murray, whose company provides research and consulting for the real estate industry. What this says is, Zillow has been and has locked up the absolute dominant position in online real estate in the United States. Seattle-based Zillow rose more than 15 percent to $145.76 a share Thursday, giving it a market value of $5.8 billion.

RBC’s Smaller Internet Stocks to Buy With Big Upside Potential – Yahoo Finance

Todays affluent travelers are looking for the best value for the money. The research shows they are trading down on experiences that are not as important (i.e. fly coach to their destination), in favor of indulging on those experiences that mean the most to them (i.e. staying in five-star luxury once they arrive). Danziger says, Travel marketers can thrive in this season of austerity if they deliver on the specialized needs and desires of the discerning luxury travelers and give them the most bang for their travel bucks. That doesn’t mean charging less, but delivering more. Many different companies studied in the report found success without resorting to discounts.” Danziger points to AKA Hotel Residences as a successful competitor that identified white space in the hospitality market for high-end extended stay accommodations.

Luigi Is Ice Cold In This Japanese Commercial For Mario Kart 8 | Digital Trends

The fact that the thumbnail for the video is the stare itself is too much of a coincidence. With a rendition of You Raise Me Up playing in the background, the commercial appears to be standard fare with Mario looking determined, Donkey Kong in a mean power slide, even Peach blowing a kiss to the camera. Then Luigi appears, unleashing his icy cold stare on an unsuspecting Baby Rosalina. That amount of menace directed towards an infant?

When some people hear the term IoT they immediately associate it with a refrigerator reminding us to order milk or our Fitbit wearable device tweeting how we just crushed a 4.1 mile run. Neither of those use cases are very compelling to most of us which makes it hard to fathom how experts can predict that by 2020 there will be greater than a one trillion dollar market that vendors will be trying to claim a piece of. The problem with IoT is a lack of education, marketing and PR. The majority of people have not been informed on what use cases are driving these astounding revenue predictions. Sure we have all heard of connected cars, wearable devices, and appliances with sensors, but what has not been marketed enough is the real business value that these things create. To further the cause of promoting awareness to the future impact of IoT, lets answer these three key questions: What kind of data are these devices collecting? What are the different types of Things or categories that are getting connected? What are the different use cases that are driving the revenue predictions? (Photo Credit: with modification from http://prabhjotsingh333.deviantart.com/art/Banglo-Exterior-292784248 ) IoT Data There are a wide variety of data types that IoT can capture.

The Marketing Destination Has Changed As Ad Clicks Pointing Outside Of Facebook Are On The Rise – Forbes

Meet the Yelp for Medical Marijuana Dispensaries – Yahoo Finance

Jun Groups CEO, Mitchell Reichgut, points out some areas that have impacted on the destination of a click.As advertisers spend more developing branded content and digital experiences, they want to drive audiences directly to those destinations. At the same time, social platforms have made it more complicated for brands to communicate with fans. These behaviors indicate that the social channels are shifting from owned audiences to more traditional paid channels as they have matured. In 2012, people were focused on Likes and follows. Now, leading brands have built their followings and are using social platforms to run pre-roll and display that direct their audiences to owned and operated content. Where do the clicks lead? (Image: Jun Group ) Debra Aho Williamson ,aPrincipal Analyst for Social Media at eMarketer, can see the reasons behind this shift in attitudes, It used to be that marketers saw Facebook as a place for social interaction and building a fan base. However, when Facebook started to reduce the organic reach of brand posts, the game changed, she told me.

The rate is now $8 a foot for the upper three floors, plus utilities, with the first floor at $12.50 per square foot.

Today’s upbeat tone was set early with the June Nonfarm Payrolls report pointing to the addition of 288,000 jobs (Briefing.com consensus 210,000). In addition, the unemployment rate unexpectedly dropped to 6.1%.

Done Rating firm cuts NJ’s online winnings estimate Credit rating firm slashes estimate of New Jersey’s online gambling revenue, to $120M By Wayne Parry, Associated Press 9 hours ago 0 shares Content preferences Done ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — A Wall Street credit rating firm that was among the most pessimistic about the prospects for Internet gambling in New Jersey has cut its already-conservative estimate on the state’s first-year online winnings by more than half. Tuesday’s move by Fitch Ratings comes a day after New Jersey reported a third straight monthly decline in the amount of money won by the state’s Internet betting operations, partnered with Atlantic City casinos. The online casinos won $9.5 million in June, and have taken in $63 million for the year. That prompted Fitch to cut its estimate of New Jersey’s 2014 Internet winnings to $120 million to $130 million, down from the $200 million to $300 million it had forecast in December. “Several factors we had expected to drive sequential growth have not materialized, including a ramp-up in players’ awareness of online gaming as a result of operators’ marketing efforts,” the company wrote in a note to investors. “The number of online gaming accounts increasing 8 percent in June to 378,564 from 351,136 in May, and tripling since December, has not translated into increased revenue.

My hiring strategy started out as posts in Facebook. I had more than 2,500 friends there and they would refer people they knew to SEO Hacker. Which is completely fineat least it came from a connection somewhereuntil weve exhausted that strategy. And we didnt exhaust just my Facebook, we exhausted all my current teams Facebook connections. So we got all the people we could from Facebook connections and referrals. There were some who I had to lay off. There were some who just suddenly up and left and never came back. There were some who politely said their goodbye. In all, weve had some people come and go in our early years. Of course, as the founder of the company and the main leader, it breaks my heart to see good people leavein whichever way.

It saw something, whether in the marketplace and/or internally, which means its likely other businesses that depend on branding should be looking hard at things, too. I didnt see the title change coming in my book, though. I thought that marketing departments would get disbanded altogether, and that their expertise would get distributed across the enterprise. I thought marketing would cease being a departmental function, and instead become an area of subject matter expertise that would be embedded in operations. This change is already happening at most companies, even if they dont recognize it.
