All of us who have been in the online marketing industry for some time already know that high quality content is what people want. We have also been bombarded with post after post telling us how to make high quality content, especially since the whole concept of content marketing caught on in the past year or two.
And yet with all these “tips and tricks”, every content marketing specialist has given us to make memorable, innovate and downright awesome content, there is still a deluge of forgettable, copy-paste, and downright mediocre content flooding the Internet (including the countless “how to create quality content” posts).

With passion comes ambition. In this century, where technology is the forerunner in innovation and desire, this ambition is translated through the internet. Many create blogs, become bloggers, and write about their passion. However, even the best bloggers run out of ideas on what to write about and have to turn to other avenues. Learning new things about their passions and turning them into blog posts is part of the reality of being a blogger. Read More
“Life is never made unbearable by circumstances, but only by lack of meaning and purpose.” – Viktor E. Frankl
Many people today are constantly searching for purpose in life. Discontentment transcends age, gender, economic status and race. Fortunately, we are interdependent as a species. We thrive on affirmation and never hesitate to give advice. Such interactions don’t always lead to knowledge of the “ultimate goal”; but they do yield meaningful, shared experiences.
Answering a friend’s question.
Making a suggestion to a colleague.
Following the advice of a family member.
These are all great examples of shared experiences. Since technology has made communication much more convenient, idea and opinion sharing effectively found its way online. Capitalising on the human tendency for semantics, search engines are rapidly moving away from keyword-prompted results towards meaning-based answers to user queries. Read More
Content is the essence of what online professionals do. Day in and day out, an online professional has to consume content, as well as deliver it. In spite of all the developments and progress made in this ever changing realm, the cliche, content is king, still applies. You may dress up your platform with the prettiest elements, but without real, valuable content, you won’t have the staying power.
One could argue that creativity is the limit. There will always be something to write about, and if you are creative enough, you will never run out of good content. However, one can also argue that there might be times when it can be useful to use the same content on different pages. Read More
Blog scraping can be defined by the act of copying content from one blog and passing it off as your own. What truly defines scraping is copying the content exactly. As long as you are using your own words to detail facts, the act frees you from copyright infringement. This is aside from the fact that search engines such as Google are working diligently to remove “scraped” content from appearing high in search rankings. What labels one as a blog scraper?
Back in the good old days when blogging first started all you needed to do was WRITE great content and you were set. These days however the web has come a long way, making it simple for bloggers to create dynamic content that can grab a users imagination both on-site and off-site.
Whether you’re writing a political blog, a blog about technology or managing a site about healthy eating these five types of content can help better engage your audience while providing more ways to reach new followers.
1. HD Video
I recently purchased a new HD (1080P) camcorder from Samsung for $250 and it’s the best investment I’ve made in years. These days readers want to put a face with content and if possible they want to see example for what you write about (sweeping landscapes for a travel blog, tech reviews for a technology website, etc). HD video allows users to become even more engaged since they are likely to watch your videos in full screen mode which means they are giving you their full attention. Read More
This is a guest post by Roko Nastic, a webmaster and blogger who writes for Webmaster Format, a webmaster info website.
Before television, before radio, and before the internet, marketers used one form of communication to move products, offer services, and acquire customers: content. It formed the basis of every sales effort, the foundations of marketing for just about every business, and the backbone of almost every early company’s revenue stream. Without content, there wasn’t business to speak of.
Today, there are hundreds of ways to move products and push services. From pay-per-click online advertising to interactive mobile applications, the amount of space awaiting advertising or marketing in some form is truly staggering. But the oldest form of marketing out there â€“ content marketing â€“ still survives, largely because it is too effective for marketers to resign.
