Social media promotion is one of the most beneficial ways to grow your business online. By tapping the right opportunities, you can continue to expand your online presence using different social media tools.
Constant Contact’s Patrick Gillooly has published an article highlighting best social media platforms for business.
He says, “The following breakdown by platform will help you best assess your social marketing strategy:
- Facebook: With nearly 2.5 billion monthly active users, Facebook is the biggest player in the game, making it the best place for businesses whose goals are to promote brand awareness, generate leads, or to retarget audiences that have already engaged with their brand. Facebook typically yields a significant return on investment as well.
- Instagram: Instagram has similar benefits to Facebook, with two exceptions. Instagram’s audience skews a bit younger than Facebook and Instagram allows for more opportunity to garner engagement without a budget, since it’s easier for businesses to gain an organic following on Instagram than it is on Facebook (thanks to Instagram’s discover page, hashtags, and location tools.) Instagram is
also a great platform to utilize influencers and influencer marketing”.
Keyword density refers to the number of times a specific keyword appears on a webpage compared to the total word count. By measuring the keyword density, you can plan your own SEO strategy.
HubSpot has published ‘‘ to help you understand keyword density.
Caroline Forsey says, “How do you calculate keyword density? The formula is straightforward: Divide the number of times a keyword is used on your page by the total number of words on the page.
Here’s an easy example: Your page has 1,000 words and your keyword is used 10 times. This gives:
10 / 1000 = .001
Multiply this by 100 to get a percentage, which in this case is 1%.
There’s also another formula sometimes used to assess keyword usage: TF-IDF, which stands for “term frequency-inverse document frequency”. The idea here is to assess the frequency of a keyword on specific pages (TF) against the number of times this word appears across multiple pages on your site (IDF). The result helps determine how relevant your keyword is for specific pages”.
SEMrush has published ‘Beginner’s Guide to Meta Tags for SEO’.
This guide is intended to help marketers improve their SEO performance by discovering and integrating meta tags for SEO performance improvement.
Connor Lahey says, “If you’re new to SEO and learning how to add it to your digital marketing strategy, a great place to start is learning more about meta tags. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the basics and best practices of using meta tags to optimize your webpages. You’ll also learn how simple techniques can help search engines recognize your webpages and increase their ranking. Here’s what we’re going to cover:
A video is an irresistible tool when it comes to marketing and promotion. It helps you make your marketing message more persuasive.
Merkle’s Jay Miller has published a new blog post titled ‘How Marketers Can Fully Leverage the Power of Video’ to help marketers improve their marketing with the integration of video.
He says, “Smart marketers are already ahead of shifting consumer proclivities toward streaming video and now all marketers need to take this development to heart.
Video strikes emotional chords and can convey empathy and tone. It’s proven to drive a 9X improvement in recall vs. text, which is why I remember Seinfeld quotes from 30 years ago, but struggle to recall an article I read yesterday. And, video has an uncanny knack for taking up a LOT of consumer time; consider your viewing habits over the last few months. But, despite its striking engagement properties, video has historically had significant marketing challenges. It’s been a medium that’s static, focused on mass-audiences – and has been costly to create, manage, and scale. But what if I told you that finally you can leverage video’s engagement power while mitigating those challenges through dynamic, individualization and delivered in real-time and at scale? Merkle, along with our technology partner SundaySky, is doing just that”.

A well-maintained blog helps you to stay connected with your audience and establish yourself as an authority in your domain.
Blogging Wizard contributor Adam Connell has shared 17 tasks to prepare your blog for the new year.
He says, “In this post, you’ll discover 17 high-impact tasks you can work on to set your blog up for success in the new year.
1. Remove unnecessary clutter
Have you been blogging for a while? If so, you’ll likely benefit from taking some time to declutter your blog.
If you use WordPress, it’s worth looking through your plugins and ask yourself: do I need all of these?
Keep the plugins that help you and ditch those that don’t benefit you (or your readers) – you may end up improving page load times as a result.
Next, you’ll want to look at removing clutter from the front-end of your site”.
I wouldn’t want to be completely passive. My mind and my body need exercise. Mental muscles as well as physical muscles need to be challenged or they will go flabby. My wife spent 6 weeks in bed with COVID-19, and now she has to rebuild her strength.
When it comes to earning a living, it’s nice to not be tied to a desk or a factory floor, or a shop or store. On the other hand, it’s good to keep involved in your business, just don’t get tied down.
There’s a new tool that has just been released that will help you cut back on your active involvement in your business (no more 60 hour seeks): BuzzPress.
BuzzPress builds viral websites; traffic included
The nice thing for those of us who aren’t programmers or webmasters, you don’t need any technical expertise or SEO expertise to build thse viral websites. The expertise is built into BuzzPress.
As the traffic grows virally, so should the results. Thus, you could have a steady stream of passive income, regardless of your background, your skills, or your experience.
And what you need to do is really this simple:
2.Setup its automation system, so you can generate traffic on autopilot
3.That’s it; there is no step 3 necessary, although you can build more sites to compound your growth.
Next month, I will be 78. I need to cut back on my daily business activity. Viral Marketing is a path toward that goal.
Even though I used to be a programmer, I am happy to say that there is no coding involed in building these site. The coding has all been done and it’s stored inside BuzzPress.
Furthermore, you don’t have to invest in online ads, so your expense is minimal. Just follow the two-step process.
If that sounds like something that you’d feel interested in, it’s all explained here: BuzzPress.
BuzzPress was released over the weekend by its creator, Ariel Sanders. It hasn’t been promoted heavily, perhaps because of the holiday in the US. But it appears to be a useful tool for building a website that gets viral traffic.
If your site attracts visitors virally, your increasing traffic will build your business for you. Thar’s what Sanders says his new software will do for you, with:
➤ No coding Required
➤ No expensive Hosting Required
➤ Plenty of Content, Increasing Daily
➤ No Huge Learning Curve
➤ No Monthly Fees
➤ Simplicity, Not Confusion
If that sounds good, read on.

Here is how it works:
1. It is an easy-to-setup website builder. Within minutes, you can build a highly-converting website.
2. Using it, you convert your visiting traffic into leads, commissions, and sales.
