Your subscribers and followers create hope for your business to make more sales. By staying connected with them, you can continue to expand your brand.
Content Marketing Institute contributor Robert Rose has shared some useful tips to help you measure the value of your subscribers.
He says, ”
As Drucker himself said, “It is the customer who determines what a business is. For it is the customer (alone) who, through being willing to pay for a good or for a service, converts economic resources into wealth, things into goods.”
Great marketing adds value that customers are willing to invest in and that can create wealth for the business. But not all customer investments involve a purchase. They can include things like time, attention, referral, personal data, and brand loyalty, all of which can be converted into wealth for the business.
Media companies understand this. As one television executive stated almost 20 years ago in the book Audience Economics, “I can’t think of another business that makes one product, but sells a different product. We make programs and put them on the air. We are not selling the programs; we are selling the people that watch the programs.”
If you watched the recent documentary The Social Dilemma, you have another understanding of how relevant this model is in today’s digital marketplace”.
DeepCrawl has published ‘The SEO’s Guide to Google’s Core Web Vitals’.
This comprehensive guide covers the following:
Norledge says, “At the end of May in 2020 Google announced they would be releasing a set of metrics called the Core Web Vitals. These are focused on speed, responsiveness, and the visual stability of a page.
These scores are set to be rolled into the core algorithm in 2021 and become a ranking signal. The SEO community has had a few months to get their head around these scores and it’s only going to become a bigger focus as we get closer to 2021.
This post will cover how SEOs can effectively audit, and provide insights to developers on how to improve these metrics”.
A YouTube of Facebook live video strategy can help you to reach your audience in real-time and promote your products and services. It also enables you to stay in close touch with them.
Social Media Examiner’s Luria Petrucci has shared an article highlighting three useful ways to create a live video strategy for Facebook and YouTube.
She says, “Live video can help you grow your audience, business, and revenue. But just because the social media algorithms love live video and prioritize it, live streaming isn’t a magic pill. You need to develop a live video content strategy that’s unique to you to get results.
Here’s the secret: Intention. It’s truly as simple as that. Instead of just going live, you need to know the intention behind the live content you’re creating. In other words, ask yourself, “What’s my goal for this particular live stream?”
You need to be clear on two things:
- The goal while you’re live
- The goal for the replay itself
Now let’s look at three intentions or goals that you may want to consider for your live video”.

Entrepreneur magazine has published a new video ‘Top 5 Podcast Strategies’ featuring James McKinney.
The Entrepreneur team says, “There are more than one million podcasts in Apple Podcasts. But simply hitting “record” and starting a podcast will not lead to long-term success or being ranked highly on the Apple Podcast charts. In this video, “Startup Story” creator and host James McKinney unpacks the five strategies that helped his podcast appear on the Apple Podcast charts after just two months.
With Spotify’s acquisition of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” podcasting has become more popular than ever. That said, less than 50 percent of the 1.1 million podcasts on the Apple Podcast platform have released new episodes in the last 90 days. While there might be many factors leading to this, poor execution is undeniably one of them.
Employing these strategies won’t guarantee a successful podcasting journey, but they will provide you the clarity you need to ensure your show starts in the right direction”.

Topic clusters help you to organize and present your blog content to the visitors. The clusters contain the topic and sub-topics of your blog for informing your audience what you have to offer them and secondly, to persuade the search engines.
SEMrush contributor Connor Lahey has published a step-by-step guide to help you understand and use topic clusters.
Lahey says, “Regardless of your organization’s industry, you can boost your digital media marketing efforts by delivering thoroughly thought-out content. In this next section, we’ll cover the steps you will need to create topic clusters.
Step 1: Decide On Your Core Topic
To begin, you should start by deciding on the core topic. Whether your business publishes blogs about health and well-being or computer software, you can use this strategy to create a curated topic plan. Whatever topic you choose, they should fit into topics that are core to your business. In doing so, you showcase the value that your business can provide to potential clients.
This step is essential, as it will be used to create your pillar page. From there, the content can be broken down into subtopics, which form your topic cluster pages. For example, if your business provides student loans, you might consider a pillar page that discusses the need for student loans and other options for paying for higher education. Your cluster pages should then break down into the fine details of student loan options that your business provides”.
By building effective Google advertisements, you can grow the chances of conversions.
PPC Hero contributor Khushboo Aulakh has shared an article highlighting two ways to find missing search terms for Google ads.
She says, ”
Google Ads reduced visibility for search terms in September. Most advertisers are reporting a 20% drop in the number of search terms being reported.
There are two workarounds to this, and if you have auto-tagging enabled in your Google Ads account, you can find the missing search terms in Google Analytics. Here’s how:
Using vLookup to compare queries in Google Ads vs. Google Analytics
In your Google Ads account, go to Search Campaigns > Search Terms. You’ll notice the total search terms reported.
Make sure the date ranges are the same for your Google Ads and Google Analytics views. In Google Analytics, go to Acquisition > All Traffic > Source/Medium. Click on google / cpc”.
