Mitch Meyerson says, “When it comes to Facebook, some people talk about metrics, such as the perfect time to post, the perfect length of a post, or the perfect way to post a link. But none of that matters as much as posting content that your audience cares about. Yes, there are strategies that work better on Facebook in terms of getting more visibility, but when you focus on providing good content consistently, your audience will make sure they go out of their way to find you. There’s no doubt that Facebook is increasingly becoming a “pay to play” platform with pages getting less... [...]

‘Twitter Is Now Placing Ads Within User Profiles’ – Re/code

Kurt Wagner says, “Your Twitter profile may soon include a new decoration: Advertising. Twitter is bringing promoted tweets, the app’s signature ad unit, to people’s profile pages as part of a new test. That means when you visit the page of another user, you may find a targeted Twitter ad waiting for you a few tweets into that user’s stream. The ads are separated from other tweets by a small bumper that creates a break in the stream, and a label that reads “Suggested by Twitter” — you can see an example at the bottom of this post. A company spokesperson confirmed Twitter is testing... [...]

’10 Ways to Improve Shopping Cart Conversions’ – ‘MarketingProfs’ Blog

Eugene Dediu says, “After your website visitors arrive at your online shopping cart, it’s simply a shame if your cart then fails you by not helping you achieve the conversion. Depending on what type of business you have, “conversion” can mean different things. For e-commerce websites, the main goal is a sale. Some websites are built with other goals in mind, however, and some have multiple goals. Maybe you create a website with the intention of collecting email signups and whitepaper downloads, or maybe the main goal is driving in-store visits or booking reservations or... [...]

Zapable was launched yesterday by Andrew Fox and his brother Chris Fox. It’s the latest, and arguably the best, app builder software available to marketers. It builds a wide range of apps that can be used for many marketing purposes, but one opportunity that shouldn’t be overlooked is building apps for local merchants.

‘How to Break the Rules and Create Great Content’ by Jay Baer

Baer says, “Scott Stratten’s viral, social, and authentic marketing agency, UnMarketing, keeps him pretty busy. So do his books, like UnMarketing and UnSelling, his UnPodcast, and being one of Forbes’ top social media power influencers. He’s known for his sarcastic tone as he points out brand fails on Twitter. When asked why he goes negative, Scott says this strategy is twofold: It matches his personality, so it’s genuine. UnMarketing came about 13 years ago because Scott was angry that the only way to market to someone was to interrupt them. Tweeting with a sarcastic edge just... [...]

‘What to Write in Your Broadcast Emails’ – Aweber Blog

Kristen Dunleavy says, “Have you ever been so excited about your latest project that you just wanted to scream about it from the rooftops? Well, consider broadcast emails your business’s megaphone. Broadcasts are perfect for delivering your company’s news, whether you’re announcing a new product, promoting a limited-time sale, or keeping readers in-the-know with your latest email newsletter. That’s the big difference between broadcast and follow up emails. A follow up email series contains evergreen content that you send to people at any time of the year, but broadcasts are for time-sensitive... [...]

‘Modern Software Platforms Are In Hypergrowth’ – Forrester

Michael Yamnitsky says, “As companies get serious about digital transformation, we see investments shifting toward extensible software platforms used to build and manage a differentiated customer experience. My colleague John McCarthy has an excellent slide describing what’s happening: Before, tech management spent most of its time and budget managing a set of monolithic enterprise applications and databases. With an addressable market of a finite number of networked PCs, spending on the front end was largely an afterthought”. Modern Software Platforms Are In Hypergrowth The... [...]
