Analyzing the Impact of Video Email on Audience

Email is one of the most powerful tools for reaching your target audience and boosting your sales. With developing technology, you can use email to share a variety of content. Video is one of them.

Content Marketing Institute has shared an in-depth article analyzing the impact of video email on the audience.

The CMI team says, “This week, new research into video email gets synapses firing. A content collaboration taps into the drive to create. And a helping hand in the greeting card aisle turns into a savvy way to introduce a new service.

This is your audience’s brains on video emails

It might be time to reconsider your text-only email strategy. Vidyard recently sponsored a small cognitive neuroscience-based study that found video emails made business professionals feel happier – and they remembered them better, as Email Insider reported.

The study (gated) involved 39 business professionals who were monitored via EEG (brainwaves), ECG (heart rate), GSR (skin conductivity), eye tracking, and other sensors to assess their responses as they viewed the emails. First, all were shown an inbox containing a set of seven emails: the first and last three were in text format, while the fourth email in the list contained a one-minute video from a coworker explaining corporate gifting options.”

Accelerate Your SEO Success – SEO Data is the Key [Guide]

Your website’s SEO success depends on factors such as high-quality content, effective keywords, useful backlinks, security, crawlability, and loading speed.

Digital Marketing Depot has published a new guide ‘Accelerate Your SEO Success – SEO Data is the Key’ to help you achieve SEO success.

The DMD team says, “Since the pandemic began last year, there has been a marked shift in attitudes towards SEO, with all eyes on companies’ digital presence as the primary shop-front for customers.

Regardless of whether this is sustained, or if it eventually normalizes, companies have had no choice but to pay more attention to their digital presence, and how users find their site online.
In order to create a successful SEO program, it is imperative that we take the opportunities presented by this particular moment in time to drive towards a bigger and more integrated role in business. Unlike most digital marketing channels, SEO performance can be impacted by anyone in a company whose work touches the website, for better -or often for worse.
SEO practitioners’ goals are twofold: to capitalize on SEO opportunities and to minimize SEO risk. This can be done in silo to an extent by increasing the parts of the site that can be influenced by an SEO practitioner, but without real oversight and operational integration there will always be changes made to the website that will be out of the SEO’s field of vision.
This guide’s aim is to provide actionable insights on getting one step closer to operational organic marketing maturity using data.”

Ahrefs on Implementing the 4 Ps of Marketing

The 4 Ps of marketing are the key categories involved in the marketing of a good or service. They refer to product, price, place, and promotion.

Ahrefs contributor Mateusz Makosiewicz

He says, “In this article, you’ll learn how to connect each of the 4 Ps into a coherent strategy to effectively promote and sell your product or service effectively in four steps:

  1. Understand the product you’re working with
  2. Decide on a price
  3. Choose a place to sell your products
  4. Create a promotion strategy

1. Understand the product you’re working with

Most of you probably already have a product or service in mind—or at least an idea for it. After all, that’s the first step in the marketing mix. But before you move on to the next step, take a moment to double-check you’re on the right track. At the very least, you should be able to answer these fundamental questions:

  • Who is the target market?
  • How big is the market?
  • What features does the market demand and value?
  • How is your product different from the competition?

Learning the answers to these questions is a job for market research, which you can learn more about here. If you don’t have time for that right now (it can be pretty time-consuming), write down your best guesses so that you have something to work with. You can always refine it later on.”

Are You Tracking These SEO Metrics?

An effective search engine optimization strategy enables you to improve your site traffic and make more sales. To achieve desired SEO results, you need to track and improve upon certain metrics.

Business 2 Community contributor George Konidis has shared a list of nine important SEO metrics you should track.

He says, “When evaluating your SEO strategy’s success, there are near-endless metrics you can monitor. To help you focus on the right metrics — regardless of what your business is about — here are the top nine SEO metrics and how to track them.

1. Organic traffic

Let’s start with the obvious one. Organic traffic is the traffic you get from the search engine results pages (SERPs) without paying for ad placement.

Your overall traffic can be from multiple sources (search engines, social networks, direct searches, other sites), and narrowing your focus to organic traffic shows your website’s visibility in search for keywords related to your business and niche. So if your SEO strategy is working, the number of visitors you earn from search results should steadily go up.

To track organic traffic in Google Analytics, log in to your dashboard and select “Add Segment” in the default Audience Overview”.

A Guide to Building a Content Marketing Team

To achieve content marketing success, you need to have a team of dedicated people who sync with each other and continue to put in their best efforts for goal achievement.

Business 2 Community contributor Josh Ritchie has published a brief guide to help you build a content marketing tem.

He says, “A good content marketing machine is a thing of beauty, each piece well-oiled and optimized for ultimate production. But like any machine, if a piece isn’t working the way it should be—or missing entirely—the whole machine will suffer. (We’ve seen and experienced this more often than we’d like to admit in the teams we’ve helped counsel.) Unfortunately, when a content marketing team isn’t functioning to the best of its abilities, the symptoms aren’t always blatantly obvious. It’s less about the mistakes made and more about the opportunities missed.

  • It’s the lack of expertise that could have turned a basic blog post into a cornerstone piece of content.
  • It’s the social strategy that needs a little more fine-tuning.
  • It’s the analytics that go unanalyzed—or, worse, aren’t properly set up.
  • It’s the process inefficiencies that eat up time.

Of course, the truth is many marketing teams are limited in how many people they can hire or outsource to, so they are often forced to do more with less. It’s no surprise that things slip through the cracks. However, even the smallest organizations can make great strides—as long as they have the right roles covered.”

Ahrefs Shares Seven Niche Market Examples

Finding the right niche is one of the most important things to do before you start developing your business. Your skills should fit into the are for which they are suitable.

Ahrefs contributor Joshua Hardwick has shared seven niche market examples to help you identify right niche for your business.

He says, “If you’re trying to think of a winning idea for a product, service, or website, it’s tempting to think big. But this isn’t always the best way forward because popular markets tend to have a high barrier to entry.

That means you’ll often need lots of money and resources to compete with the big players that already dominate.

For that reason, it’s often better to target (and dominate) a niche market.

In this article, we’ll look at some successful examples of companies targeting niche markets and how they attract customers.

  1. Lefty’s
  2. Nomad List
  3. The Modest Man
  4. TomBoyX
  5. Bee’s Wrap
  6. Divvies

AWeber’s Guide to Successful Email Marketing Campaigns

Email marketing is used by thousands of businesses of all sizes around the world. It is one of the most popular forms of marketing due to its low cost, wider reach, and instant impact.

AWeber contributor Kelly Forst has published a guide to running successful email marketing campaigns.

She says, “To get great results, you need to do more than send out random emails. Your campaign should be carefully planned out and tracked for effectiveness. Here are crucial steps to take when running an email campaign.

Identify your goals

You should never make a move without having specific goals in mind. Your marketing goals should be clearly defined so that you and your team can be on the same page. Establishing goals may seem intimidating, but they serve as a benchmark to see if you are getting the kind of traction you need from your campaigns. Always write SMART goals—Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Timely.

Segment your audience

Your audience is filled with a wide variety of individuals at different stages in their journey with you. Treating your email marketing as a one-size-fits-all content hose is not going to benefit anyone.

When you segment your list, you can send out relevant emails to specific parts of your audience. You don’t want to send out a local event announcement for people in another country. You certainly wouldn’t want to send the same introductory emails to a loyal customer that you would send to a new lead.”
