‘Why You Need a Facebook Video Strategy Right Now’ by Jay Baer

Baer says, “Facebook doesn’t just want to help you promote your website. Maybe they want to replace your website? Facebook announced that they are making yet another change to the news feed algorithm. This time they have determined that if you spend a disproportionate amount of time on a particular Facebook post, even if you do not engage with that post, even if you do not like it, if you do not comment on it, if you do not share it, if you just spend time on it, so you stop scrolling and you watch, read, etc., if you’re reading the comments, etc., then they will give it extra love, and... (Read More ...)

‘The One Ingredient Your Content Marketing Program Is Missing’ – Content Marketing Institute

Joe Pulizzi says, “Through keynote talks, workshops, and webinars, I’ve had the opportunity to present on the topic of content marketing more than 200 times in the past four years. In almost every one of those presentations, I relayed the following information: “Content marketing doesn’t usually fail because of content quality. The main reason is because it’s inconsistent or it stops.” Most marketers simply don’t want to hear this. With all the exuberance around content marketing, they want to hear that if they execute against a reasonable strategy, success will come in six months... (Read More ...)

‘Steal This Trick: What Confident Content Marketers All Have in Common’ – ‘Copyblogger’ Blog

Sonia Simone says, “There are a million techniques that make your content better and more popular. (Probably a half-million just here on Copyblogger.) Strong headlines, smart copywriting techniques, storytelling, humor, etc. But there’s one insider trick that makes the rest of it easy. It starts from the very beginning, when you’re figuring out what type of content you want to produce. Start by picking a crowded topic Copywriter Gary Halbert famously advised copywriters to look for a “starving crowd.” In other words, if you want to open a restaurant, put it where there are already... (Read More ...)

‘The Key to Driving Consistent Growth: Understanding Costs’ – HubSpot

Doug Davidoff says, “I have a confession to make. I’m a revenue (sales) guy. I can think about, conceive and vision growth opportunities without even trying. On the other hand, thinking about (and understanding) costs doesn’t come so easily to me. I’ve learned that understanding your costs is crucial to creating profitable revenue consistently, sustainably and scalably. Unfortunately, very few small and mid-sized companies understand their sales cost structure well enough. This creates two potential problems (one obvious and one not-so-obvious): If your costs are too high, you’ll... (Read More ...)

‘Five small businesses with brilliant Pinterest pages’ – ‘Econsultancy’ Blog

Jack Simpson says, “Recently I wrote a post covering what the top five UK ecommerce brands are doing on Pinterest.  But why should corporate giants have all the fun? I’m sure there’s an oxymoron somewhere in that sentence, but in any case I thought I’d look at some smaller ecommerce brands to see what they’re doing to compete. Farmdrop When it comes to shareable content on social media, everyone loves a good food pic. That’s why people in restaurants pick up their phone before their fork when their dinner arrives (*unimpressed face*). London-based local produce delivery firm Farmdrop... (Read More ...)

‘How to Make Your Webinar As Effective As Possible’ by Jay Baer

Baer says, “Posting on social media sites, sending out e-newsletters, creating videos, and blogging are some of the preferred content marketing tactics among companies. However, one tool that is often overlooked is the webinar. According to the Content Marketing Institute’s 2015 B2C Content Marketing survey, 93 percent of marketers utilize social media content, 80 percent use e-newsletters, 74 percent produce videos, and 67 percent blog. Only 31 percent hold webinars or webcasts. Webinars can be extremely valuable to a company’s marketing strategy. Some advantages include: The opportunity... (Read More ...)

‘Visual Content Marketing: Building Digital Stories That Really Connect’ – ‘Marketing Land’ Article

Jim Yu says, “Visual content has been dominant in the marketing and personal communication worlds. In recent years, professionals have begun to notice that rich media do much more than look nice — they increase engagement, understanding, and can tell the brand story. When people think about the best ways to communicate with their brand audience, they often assume that written content is the best path. But the human brain actually processes visual content faster than text. That might explain why Forbes found that among senior executives, 59 percent would rather watch a video than read an... (Read More ...)

Lindsay Kolowich says, “Of Facebook’s 1.25 billion monthly active users, 44% Like their friends’ posts at least once a day — and 29% do it multiple times a day. That’s hundreds of millions of people interacting with content on the social network on a daily basis. So what motivates people to Like Facebook posts — and share them, and comment on them? And why should businesses care? Research has found several psychological reasons behind why users enjoy using Facebook so much. For example, studies observing people browsing on Facebook found psychological indications... (Read More ...)
