As the mobile world goes, so goes the world of marketing. Recent data only serve to underscore this point. Statistics from Pew, for example, put mobile device usage in the United States at about 200 million people. And of these cellular, smartphone and tablet users, a healthy 74% rely on their devices for web browsing and news updates in real time.

SONY DSC

Putting your business on auto pilot doesn’t have to be scary. You already automate all time– like flying in a 747. You have paid your ticket. You are boarding the plane. You have found your seat. The plan takes off. It handles fine. You trust in the pilots to get you there safely. Then about an hour later, you see both the captain and the co-pilot taking a coffee break at the same time. Do you panic? No! Why not? You have come to the realization that the plane is now on “auto pilot.” But here’s the thing: You trust the airline, the pilot, the co-pilot, and the equipment to handle the plane fine on “auto pilot.” If you didn’t, you wouldn’t have flown with that airline. The same is true with automation with your business. Read More

5 Tricks For A Better Facebook Ad Campaign

Image representing Facebook as depicted in Cru...

Many online marketers try starting a Facebook Ad campaign once and to their standards fail, leading to never exploring Facebook advertising again. I’ve had many online marketers tell me that the blame rests completely on Facebook, and that it’s just not a great place to advertise online. Is it really Facebook’s fault or is it the online marketer who can’t find a way to make his/her ads work?

A little bit of both I think. See… some brands just won’t do well on Facebook regardless of the effort you put in. Some brands cover boring topics, and boring topics tend to not do so well on Facebook. Especially with Facebook advertising. Read More

How Google Get You to Their Site – Top Lessons in Internet Marketing and ‘Real Company Stuff’ From Google

But there’s a bit of a paradox there if you look closely, that being that Google is the perhaps the only site on the web to whom SEO doesn’t apply. There’s not much point in Google trying to get to the top of the SERPs, seeing as you’d have to be on their site already for that to be any use…

So what does Google do when they need to get hits/attention? How do they ensure people keep talking about their service and keep coming back? They do what any business has done for years: proper, old-fashioned marketing and PR.

This is something that’s very relevant to other webmasters today too. With the changes to SEO lately causing a lot of disruption in the industry, it’s this kind of old fashioned marketing and promotion – or ‘Proper Company Promotion’/'Real Company Stuff’ as it’s being called – that a lot of web marketers are turning to instead. So what can we learn from Google themselves when it comes to generating buzz for our site and making people want to share? Here are some of their best techniques…
