If you are in the United States and have lost income due to the COVID-19 virus, you may be eligible to apply for assistance from the special fund set up by the US Congress.
Congress set a system of forgivable loans, known as the Payroll Protection Plan, available both to self-employed individuals and to small businesses.
The first available funds were quickly exhausted, with many people still needing help. So, on June 30th, 2020, U.S. Congress extended the Payroll Protection Plan (PPP) to distribute over $121 BILLION in more funds for forgivable loans to millions of self-employed U.S. individuals and small businesses who weren’t able to take advantage of the original funds.
You must apply this week, no later than Saturday (unless Congress passes a replacement program or extension), so this is an urgent matter.
Matt Rhodes and his brother John Rhodes took advantage of the offer. Now, based on their experience, they have written up a guide to help other online USA marketers who may be in need of this help.
If you are in the US and have lost income due to the virus, get this free information from the Rhodes brothers here: Free Payroll Protection Plan booklet.

Content remains the king on the Internet. It is a difficult task to constantly create fresh content to influence your audience.
To help you with the content creation for your social media channels, Social Media Examiner’s Lynsey Fraser has shared five ways you can repurpose your existing audio and video content.
Fraser says, “Looking for ways to create useful social media content from your videos, live video, and podcasts? Wondering how to easily transform that content for social media?
In this article, you’ll discover how to repurpose video and audio into multiple formats you can share on your social media channels.
Have Your Tech in Place
Creating content for your social media channels can be an arduous and time-consuming task. This is why savvy social media marketers will get the most out of any content they create.
When an opportunity arises to capture live video content, record a podcast, or film a webinar, have a plan in place before you start recording that outlines the key points, promotional aspects, and opportunities you can maximize when repurposing your content”.
Search Engine Journal’s Christine Zirnheld has published a new podcast episode ‘Facebook Algorithm to Favor Original Reporting’ highlighting how Facebook is going to treat original reporting on its network.
Zirnheld says, “This week on Marketing O’Clock, the team covers Facebook’s newsworthy algorithm change, free Google Shopping listings in the main search results, and more.
This week, Jess Budde, Greg Finn, and Christine “Shep” Zirnheld cover all the digital marketing headlines before you log off for the holiday weekend.
Facebook announced that they are updating their algorithm for news articles to prioritize original reporting.
If many articles related to a certain topic link back to one article as a source, Facebook would identify that article as the original report”.
With Instagram Stories, you can catch your audience’s attention and present the offers they can’s resist. You can boost product promotion by appealing the customer psychology.
Social Media Examiner’s Alex Beadon has shared five ways to help you promote your products with Instagram Stories.
#1: Use the Instagram Stories Countdown Feature to Create a Sense of Urgency
My first tip for promoting a product or offer on Instagram is to use the Countdown feature on Instagram Stories. The countdown sticker can be effective to:
- Count down to a special launch, whether it’s a promotion of a new product or a special offer.
- Count down the number of hours remaining in an active launch”.
Marketing funnels are key to the growth of any marketing business. You don’t want to sell a single product to a customer. You want to offer them a series of related products that build on their original purchase and make these additional offers at a time and in a sequence that makes sense for them.
Less than 24 hours ago, FunnelVio was released to the public (i.e., the tribe of online marketers around the world), and it provides a significant boost to your funnel-building capabilities.
This new funnel building tool creates individual landing pages if that’s all you need, but it also creates whole sequences of these pages to form yout funnel.
The process is fast and easy for any online marketer, even beginners, because:
1. It comes pre-loaded with 200+ ready-to-deploy beautiful pages that you can choose from to suit your niche. Use them over and over again.

4. It will clone any existing funnel with just 3 clicks of your mouse.
You should see the demo here to see how easy it is.
In your funnels, you will be selling things, of course. That means you need a way to take payment. Included in this software is a built-in check-out page with PayPal and Stripe, and 1-Click Zapier Integration
Your funnels are carefully designed to be responsive. All your pages fit perfectly on the screen the customer is using, whether wide, desktop, tablet, or mobile phone.

With every Google search algorithm update, your website traffic sees some kind of change – be it positive or negative. According to ReadWrite’s Toms Panders, many publishers have seen drop in their site traffic after Google’s latest core update released on May 4.
Panders has shared five ways to regain your web traffic.
He says, “Having armed with key data and metrics, I would like to share with you four major tips on how to recover from this traffic crack.
1. Get your blog featured in Google News
According to SimilarWeb.com Google News currently has over 500M monthly visits. As it is the dream of most online publishers to reach an audience this big, this is the chance to distribute your content to a readership that is already well-established.
The potential of Google News is incredible and can help you to become one of the most featured blogs in your industry.
Let’s compare Ahref’s results on how organic traffic has changed from April to June for two Setupad publishers -– Publisher A and Publisher B”.
Right keyword selection can help you to improve your search engine marketing performance. In-depth keyword research can help you to explore and select the most appropriate keywords for your business.
Ahrefs’ Joshua Hardwick has shared five tips to help you understand the importance of importance of keywords and use them for SEO.
Hardwick says, “Showing up at the top of Google for a relevant keyword might send lots of traffic your way, but how do you do that?
There are two ways.
PPC is where you pay Google to show your web page in the results for specific keywords. For example, if you sell email marketing software, you could bid on that term and appear at the top of Google’s search results when people search for it.
That’s what Campaign Monitor does.
This is known as PPC (Pay Per Click) advertising”.
Personalization in marketing helps you to reach out your target audience and persuade them to take an action. With right personalization strategy, you can enhance your marketing performance.
Content Marketing Institute contributor Ann Gynn has shared a four-step guide to help you create a simple personalization strategy for your marketing.
Gynn says, “Vishal Khanna, vice president of marketing and communications at HealthPrize Technologies, says the go or no-go decision for personalizing content should boil down to a single question: Is personalization integral to achieving success?
If it is, detail the goal for each piece of content, nurture campaign, etc. What does your brand want to achieve by personalizing it?
Allison Wert, senior marketing strategist at SmartBug Media, says brands must make personalization about providing value to the audience, not showing off how well they can “stalk” their prospects.
Or, as content strategist and marketing consultant Liz Willits explains, “It’s personalizing with purpose. Use personalization to help your audience and deliver content that solves their problems”.
As people increasingly use mobile devices to search the web, they are using their voices to search more often. Thus, by optimizing for voice search, you can enhance your chances of getting more website traffic from multiple devices.
Go Fish Digital contributor Pierce Brelinsky has shared five steps to optimize for voice search.
STRATEGIES FOR OPTIMIZING CONTENT FOR VOICE SEARCH
1. Write the Way You Speak
That’s right. Think about answering your question from a user experience (UX) perspective and try to write your content as you would if you were speaking to the user face-to-face. This helps make your content flow as though you were having a meaningful dialogue or conversation with your users in response to their questions.
Furthermore, readability makes your content easier to understand, especially when read out loud by a virtual assistant. A good rule of thumb for readability is to write at a high school or middle school reading level. These parameters translate to the lowest estimated level of standard education needed to understand your writing; they don’t necessarily mean that this demographic is your target audience. A handy tool to help make sure you’re on the right track is the Hemingway App, which can help make your content more accessible to your readers”.
