Everything You Need to Know Before Advertising Through Social Media

by Alexandre @ Long Tail Logic – Social Media Management and Search Optimization

  The rise of social media has generated endless new opportunities for advertisement. With these new platforms, targeting a precise audience for advertisement has never been so effective. The plethora of available advertising avenues also means that one has a lot to consider when starting a new campaign. Every social platform has its own rules and should be researched before advertising on it. Even before that, though, the first goal is to prepare your campaign. Have a quick look into this article, to see the 6-steps strategy to smart advertising. Once you have clearly defined your goals and what you expect from your campaign, it is time to have a look into the social platform you can use for advertisement. You still need to decide where to advertise. Knowing the why and the what is one thing, but with the rise of the “social web” advertisers now have many more different options for how and where. As always, it is important to have a good look into what others do before jumping into an unknown activity. Where do the best social marketers advertise? According to Business Insiders here is a review of how much is spent on social media:   Clearly, Facebook is the number one place where marketers decide to advertise. That means two things: first, you cannot dismiss Facebook from your list of places to advertise, because both your customers and competitors are on it. But the other interesting point would be to look into other places to advertise, because your competitors might not be advertising on them, or they might be much cheaper! To simplify your work, I summarized the key points of advertising on the most interesting social networks for a marketer.   Advertising on Facebook With more than a billion users, and over 50% of those users active on any given day, Facebook is the actual leader of the social networks. You have the virtual opportunity to reach over a billion potential customers with one ad. With its sophisticated system of “likes” and center of interests, Facebook produces an algorithm that makes targeting customers as easy as child’s play. You can target exactly the people who will be most receptive to your advertisement. Age, gender, occupation, interests, and more… It has a user-friendly interface, so even if you are not familiar with Facebook or other advertising solutions (like Google Adworks for example) you will have no trouble creating a campaign on Facebook. First, go to http://www.facebook.com/advertising and click on “create an ad”. You need a Facebook account to start using the advertisement system. You have three possibilities: “sponsored stories”, “promoted posts”, or “Facebook Ads”. The “sponsored stories” will reach your customers in their newsfeed, and the Facebook Ads will stay on the places designed for advertisement (mostly on the right side of the screen). Facebook recently added the “promoted post” functionality. Here is a great article from SEOMoz that compares the reach of promoted posts and sponsored stories: http://www.seomoz.org/blog/facebook-promoted-post-vs-sponsored-story-test The rest of the process for creating the ad is standard: you will be asked to choose a destination tab (the landing page that your ad will point to), a title (just like blog titles, use a catchy title to grab the attention), an image, etc. The next step is focused on targeting. You will select the audience you want to reach with your ad. Location, age, gender, and more. Facebook is known for having the most precise targeting available, so use this to your advantage! The last step is pricing. This is the key: the more you pay the more people will see your advertisement. You have the choice between CPM (you pay for the visibility of your ad, per “impression”), or CPC (you pay when people click on your ad). The click-through rate is often very low (most of the time <0.1%), but the CPC option usually offers you the best return on investment. The cost of Facebook advertising will depend on your target. The Cost per Click for example can be anything between $0.03 to $5 or more depending on your industry. This can still be a great deal, depending on the conversion rate of people who click through your ad and how much a conversion is worth to you. This is the key point that will determine whether your ROI on this campaign will be high or low. You should start with a small budget. Many people focus on a reasonable $50 to start with. There is no point in flooding your ad in one day all over the Internet. Refine it through small trials and iterations, and increase the reach and budget once you’re satisfied with its performance. How effective Facebook is for advertising: A brand? Because it only displays messages from the brand to the customers/fans, Facebook ads do not provide something “special” that would make the site unique for branding. Of course a fan page helps with company branding and community building, but advertising alone will be much more effective for specific products/services/events rather than just for the name of the company. Advertisers understand that, and you can clearly see that the ads on Facebook are usually for a product/service and not for the company itself. A service/product? With the amount of people reachable with any ads, Facebook is a place one can’t ignore when promoting a service or a product. The billion users make it almost impossible to select criteria with no results. A popular strategy is to combine Facebook ads with a free Facebook fan page, by directing those who click on the ad to the Facebook page. If, once there, they are convinced to ‘like’ the page, they will automatically see future updates and posts by the page in their newsfeed. An event? Facebook has a specific system of events that is widely used. Events are often used for marketing, and Facebook is the only social network set up to support marketing events specifically. Correctly used, it can be extremely effective.     Advertising on Twitter Why […]

The Challenge of Calculating Social Media ROI

by Charlie @ Long Tail Logic – Social Media Management and Search Optimization

Social Media ROI has a well earned reputation of being hard to calculate.  A quick Google search, for example, reveals dozens of articles on the subject without much of a consensus on the solution.  Search Amazon and you’ll find books on the subject that end up being more about implementing social media strategies than actually measuring their impact.  This difficulty and disagreement stems from two facts.  First, the traditional formula displayed on the right often doesn’t appear to work due to the nebulous nature of the gains social media provides.  Second, social media marketing provides quite a few diverse benefits that vary depending on the particular case.  In the end, the most difficult aspect of calculating the ROI of social media is identifying the wide variety of benefits. Unlike most marketing methods that generate a single measurable return such as sales or traffic, social media can provide a wide variety of less tangible benefits.  For example, common benefits include direct and referral traffic, direct sales, ad impressions, customer service savings, brand equity, market intelligence, and improved search engine ranking.  To be fair, it is beyond me to calculate the particular value of some of these benefits — brand equity for example.  Most benefits, though, are quite measurable, despite occasionally being a challenge. Lets look at sales.  Quite a few regular activities in social marketing generate sales, directly or indirectly.  Coupons or promotions cause immediate sales.  Responses to customers can encourage purchases and retain customers after bad experiences.  Insightful or fun posts that get shared can generate new customers who later buy, and can drive traffic to your website.  Once again, the solution is to segment.  Value customer interaction just as you would in your contact center.  Apply your website’s conversion rate to traffic generated.  Use unique coupon codes on social media so you can separate it from the same promotion elsewhere.  Simply calculate the value of each type of interaction separately. A lot of marketers end up focusing on traffic as the primary objective of social media marketing.  This is a reasonable approach for a number of reasons.  While there are a number of effects of social media marketing that don’t result in additional website traffic (like customer service and branding), the great majority do.  Also, focusing on traffic removes outside factors that can affect the sales impact of marketing on social media — conversion rate in particular.  In the end, though, it comes back to figuring out what applies to your particular business.  Determine what needs to be measured, and actually measuring becomes much simpler.

23 Ideas to Make the Most of Online Marketing for Your Local Business!

by Alexandre @ Long Tail Logic – Social Media Management and Search Optimization

4 General Online Marketing Tips to Get Started With Make Sure Your Company Website is Set Up for Conversion Converting means that you turned a visitor into a customer. The first thing to look for is an efficient website: good-looking, non-aggressive to visitors (no wild pop-up appearances or heavy flash use), user-friendly (the information is easily found), finished (no half-done pages), and a precise purpose that is consistent with the purpose of the company. Add a Blog to Your Website Blogging is a real asset to your website. Not only will it bring in surprising traffic from social sharing and search engines, but it will help create a link between you and your customers. It gives a more “human” touch to your business and no one should ignore that. Keep an Eye on the Enemy In his Art of War, Sun Tzu quoted an ancient Chinese proverb: “Know yourself, know your enemy, and you shall win a hundred battles without loss”. That is true for every business around our planet. Competition is good, competition leads to innovation. Take advantage of it! Look at your competitors and learn from their mistakes as much as you learn from their success.  How are they managing their online marketing? How efficient is their social media management? How high are they ranked in Google for the same keywords you use in your own website? Think “Long-Term” Effort Search Engine Optimization (SEO), marketing and community-related actions take a long time to become efficient. You build your reputation and your community with time: give your customers a chance to get to know you and your business. If you don’t want to have a long-term vision, you should be planting turnips, not doing online marketing. Keep calm and carry on with your efforts.   4 Essential Local Content Marketing Steps Make Your Content as Local as Your Business Is Your website and your blog should often refer to what you do in the specific area you are working in. If you are local, prove it!  This will pay dividends when it comes to your local search ranking. Schedule Frequent Blog Entries Having a blog is nice. But you know what is even nicer? Having a useful blog. You can easily cultivate a following for your articles as long as you post content that is related to your business or area on a regular basis. Pick some ideas HERE to boost your blog’s traffic. If you always publish the same day of the week, people will start expecting your publications. For example, this theatre in Ann Arbor uses a blog and posts an article at least once a week. Start a Customer Newsletter As long as you don’t send one 3 times a day, newsletters are often welcomed by customers. Once a month might fit perfectly, as it keeps your clients aware of your presence without annoying them. It’s a nice way to create another link between you and your clients. You can show your newest products, promote your latest blog entry, distribute your latest offer, or advertise upcoming events. Use Pictures … A Lot! Pictures of your staff, your local business, or even regular clients help create a human relationship between your company and your customers. Using real pictures in your website and through your social media network shows everyone that your company is not only a business but a human adventure. You are local: touch people by showing them local things! A famous local person comes into your business? Take a picture and share it! Everything you can do to make your customers feel like you care about them as human beings is great and worth a lot of effort. For example, this Café in Ann Arbor uses a lot of pictures taken on its location. We can see real customers enjoying their meals, and the trust given to the website is therefore increased.   4 Ways to Link Online and Offline Marketing Leverage Calls to Action Online that will Link to Offline Actions A “call to action” is an invitation for visitors to take a specific action. It can be following you on social media, joining a group, or printing a coupon. The visitor becomes an actor, and he is now linked to your company through this “call to action”. You can use this concept to make your customers take online actions that will have offline repercussions. Let’s say you own a restaurant, a “call to action” could be to ask visitors to complete a quick survey about their favorite meal in the restaurant, and they will win a 20% discount on their next meal. You made the customer take an action towards you, you made him remember what he liked about your restaurant, and you incited him to come back! Use Local Online Advertising With Google, Facebook or even Stumbleupon you can target people in a very specific area. If you want only people living in your town to see your ad, you can make that happen! You could even advertise only to people searching on cell phones in your area. Local online advertising can be very effective and is affordable: you invest only in the precise traffic you want! Use Tools to Bring Offline Visitors Online and Vice Versa Linking online and offline marketing is easier and much more important than you could think. You can help achieve that by using various tools, such as QR codes. They link your online and offline marketing for anyone who has a smart phone, and they cost nothing! Why should we avoid something free that may help? Learn more about how to use QR codes in your marketing. Include your social icons in all your brochures and posters, or even on the front door of your business! Make sure every customer is aware of the benefits of joining your online community. Do not hesitate in taking pictures of some customers (with their permission, obviously) and using them in your social networks. It links the “real” with the “virtual”. Transform Paper-Based Loyalty Cards into an Online Benefit If you […]

The 5 Best Ways to Drive Shocking Traffic to a Brand New Blog

by Alexandre @ Long Tail Logic – Social Media Management and Search Optimization

  In this article we will guide you to an incredible amount of traffic immediately after the launching of your blog. We’ll see why Guest blogging is so important, and how to make the most of Social Bookmarking. After a quick view at professional social groups and how to use them for traffic, we shall get into the huge taboo of paying to advertise your blog. We’ll finish by looking into backlinking and how to make the most of those who copy your content. The first step is to create a quality blog (one can never insist too much on that). Once you have mastered the concepts of WordPress (for example) and you have a blog you are proud of, you can start thinking of how to attract as many people as you can to it. We will assume here that you prepared a lot of content ahead, and that you already have 15-20 articles of a good quality. Select your 3-5 best pieces of art, and do not publish them! Save them for later — you’ll understand why shortly. Select some others to be published in the future according to your schedule — regular publications are very important in blogging: not only for SEO but to ensure your audience that you are able to bring good quality content on a consistent basis.   3 free, easy-to-do and very effective steps to quickly boost your traffic   Social bookmarking What is social bookmarking? It’s basically the same concept as the bookmarks you insert in your book to remember where you left it. These sites allows the users to “bookmark” sites or pages that they find valuable for others to see. Depending on your content you might prefer one or another social bookmark, but the important part is to share some (or all) your content there. You will benefit from their traffic and SEO. People will read your articles there and, upon finding good quality content, they might share your articles with their friends. Don’t forget to add an author’s description, and always link to your blog. Here are five very popular Social Bookmarking sites: digg.com reddit.com stumbleupon.com newsvine.com diigo.com   One important thing to remember, though: if you just come to these sites to publish your content once in a while, your links may go unnoticed.  To increase the impact of sharing on these sites, visit them on a regular basis and share other’s content, for example. Being part of the community gives more credit to your publications.   Social Media groups We know you are already comfortable with social media, and you are probably already using it to publicize your work.  There is more you can do, though.  Most of the professional social sites like LinkedIn have groups you can join. So do it! Join every group relevant to your area, and share your articles on them! Share the ones on your blog, and those which you Guest Posted on other’s sites. Make sure you share every article, but be careful not to spam! Don’t share everything right away — follow the same schedule you’ve developed for your blog.  Just as with social bookmarking sites, participate in the community and more people will pay attention to your posts.   Guest blogging Now that we have a decent blog with a lot of content in it, it is time to catch some traffic. The first move would be to look toward Guest Blogging. What is Guest Blogging? You approach a famous blog relevant to your own blogging area, and offer them free content. The famous blog already benefits from great traffic and SEO. You could get some of theirs by having a great article on their homepage! This is why you should keep your best articles in stock and not publish them right away on your blog. Blogs are chronological, the most recent content is on the top. Why would you want your best stuff to be immediately buried? You want to promote your best articles so people will want to come to your blog, subscribe, etc. Not all blogs will welcome you warmly. Lots of famous blogs are often approached by similar requests and refuse to look at any proposal of that type. So how can you find where to guest blog? You can start by looking through Google, and/or going through this list of 500 places to syndicate your content. You can also look through this list of 100 blogs that are welcoming guest posts. Once you’ve found it, don’t pressure the blog! Prepare a nice pitch to convince them that they need your (free and amazing) content! Spend some time going through their publications; make sure nothing has ever been posted on the topic you are offering, etc. The important part in this preparation is to constantly remember that the blog may be contacted dozens of times every day with the same request. You need to make sure that if they accept a guest, you will be that guest. Make sure you don’t post the same article in two different guest posts. That would give your blog a bad image. Advertise your blog! Why and how you should do it.     Make no mistake, as the Romans said: nervi belli pecunia. Money is the sinew of War. By implementing the free techniques described above, you can reach a certain amount of traffic quickly. But in order to achieve maximum success, you should reinvest in your blog. People have always been reluctant to pay for advertising their blog. Nobody minds paying for advertising their website, their company or even their personal events. Bloggers, on the other hand seem to view advertising themselves as taboo and swear by organic methods. Well if you are a thirteen year old girl and you write about how wonderful your school day was, yes it might be overreacting to pay for advertising that. But if you are serious about what you do, and you really want your blog to be successful, why shouldn’t you invest some of your money along with your time? You already spent a […]

Everything You Need to Know Before Advertising Through Social Media

by Alexandre @ Long Tail Logic – Social Media Management and Search Optimization

  The rise of social media has generated endless new opportunities for advertisement. With these new platforms, targeting a precise audience for advertisement has never been so effective. The plethora of available advertising avenues also means that one has a lot to consider when starting a new campaign. Every social platform has its own rules and should be researched before advertising on it. Even before that, though, the first goal is to prepare your campaign. Have a quick look into this article, to see the 6-steps strategy to smart advertising. Once you have clearly defined your goals and what you expect from your campaign, it is time to have a look into the social platform you can use for advertisement. You still need to decide where to advertise. Knowing the why and the what is one thing, but with the rise of the “social web” advertisers now have many more different options for how and where. As always, it is important to have a good look into what others do before jumping into an unknown activity. Where do the best social marketers advertise? According to Business Insiders here is a review of how much is spent on social media:   Clearly, Facebook is the number one place where marketers decide to advertise. That means two things: first, you cannot dismiss Facebook from your list of places to advertise, because both your customers and competitors are on it. But the other interesting point would be to look into other places to advertise, because your competitors might not be advertising on them, or they might be much cheaper! To simplify your work, I summarized the key points of advertising on the most interesting social networks for a marketer.   Advertising on Facebook With more than a billion users, and over 50% of those users active on any given day, Facebook is the actual leader of the social networks. You have the virtual opportunity to reach over a billion potential customers with one ad. With its sophisticated system of “likes” and center of interests, Facebook produces an algorithm that makes targeting customers as easy as child’s play. You can target exactly the people who will be most receptive to your advertisement. Age, gender, occupation, interests, and more… It has a user-friendly interface, so even if you are not familiar with Facebook or other advertising solutions (like Google Adworks for example) you will have no trouble creating a campaign on Facebook. First, go to http://www.facebook.com/advertising and click on “create an ad”. You need a Facebook account to start using the advertisement system. You have three possibilities: “sponsored stories”, “promoted posts”, or “Facebook Ads”. The “sponsored stories” will reach your customers in their newsfeed, and the Facebook Ads will stay on the places designed for advertisement (mostly on the right side of the screen). Facebook recently added the “promoted post” functionality. Here is a great article from SEOMoz that compares the reach of promoted posts and sponsored stories: http://www.seomoz.org/blog/facebook-promoted-post-vs-sponsored-story-test The rest of the process for creating the ad is standard: you will be asked to choose a destination tab (the landing page that your ad will point to), a title (just like blog titles, use a catchy title to grab the attention), an image, etc. The next step is focused on targeting. You will select the audience you want to reach with your ad. Location, age, gender, and more. Facebook is known for having the most precise targeting available, so use this to your advantage! The last step is pricing. This is the key: the more you pay the more people will see your advertisement. You have the choice between CPM (you pay for the visibility of your ad, per “impression”), or CPC (you pay when people click on your ad). The click-through rate is often very low (most of the time <0.1%), but the CPC option usually offers you the best return on investment. The cost of Facebook advertising will depend on your target. The Cost per Click for example can be anything between $0.03 to $5 or more depending on your industry. This can still be a great deal, depending on the conversion rate of people who click through your ad and how much a conversion is worth to you. This is the key point that will determine whether your ROI on this campaign will be high or low. You should start with a small budget. Many people focus on a reasonable $50 to start with. There is no point in flooding your ad in one day all over the Internet. Refine it through small trials and iterations, and increase the reach and budget once you’re satisfied with its performance. How effective Facebook is for advertising: A brand? Because it only displays messages from the brand to the customers/fans, Facebook ads do not provide something “special” that would make the site unique for branding. Of course a fan page helps with company branding and community building, but advertising alone will be much more effective for specific products/services/events rather than just for the name of the company. Advertisers understand that, and you can clearly see that the ads on Facebook are usually for a product/service and not for the company itself. A service/product? With the amount of people reachable with any ads, Facebook is a place one can’t ignore when promoting a service or a product. The billion users make it almost impossible to select criteria with no results. A popular strategy is to combine Facebook ads with a free Facebook fan page, by directing those who click on the ad to the Facebook page. If, once there, they are convinced to ‘like’ the page, they will automatically see future updates and posts by the page in their newsfeed. An event? Facebook has a specific system of events that is widely used. Events are often used for marketing, and Facebook is the only social network set up to support marketing events specifically. Correctly used, it can be extremely effective.     Advertising on Twitter Why […]

23 Ideas to Make the Most of Online Marketing for Your Local Business!

by Alexandre @ Long Tail Logic – Social Media Management and Search Optimization

4 General Online Marketing Tips to Get Started With Make Sure Your Company Website is Set Up for Conversion Converting means that you turned a visitor into a customer. The first thing to look for is an efficient website: good-looking, non-aggressive to visitors (no wild pop-up appearances or heavy flash use), user-friendly (the information is easily found), finished (no half-done pages), and a precise purpose that is consistent with the purpose of the company. Add a Blog to Your Website Blogging is a real asset to your website. Not only will it bring in surprising traffic from social sharing and search engines, but it will help create a link between you and your customers. It gives a more “human” touch to your business and no one should ignore that. Keep an Eye on the Enemy In his Art of War, Sun Tzu quoted an ancient Chinese proverb: “Know yourself, know your enemy, and you shall win a hundred battles without loss”. That is true for every business around our planet. Competition is good, competition leads to innovation. Take advantage of it! Look at your competitors and learn from their mistakes as much as you learn from their success.  How are they managing their online marketing? How efficient is their social media management? How high are they ranked in Google for the same keywords you use in your own website? Think “Long-Term” Effort Search Engine Optimization (SEO), marketing and community-related actions take a long time to become efficient. You build your reputation and your community with time: give your customers a chance to get to know you and your business. If you don’t want to have a long-term vision, you should be planting turnips, not doing online marketing. Keep calm and carry on with your efforts.   4 Essential Local Content Marketing Steps Make Your Content as Local as Your Business Is Your website and your blog should often refer to what you do in the specific area you are working in. If you are local, prove it!  This will pay dividends when it comes to your local search ranking. Schedule Frequent Blog Entries Having a blog is nice. But you know what is even nicer? Having a useful blog. You can easily cultivate a following for your articles as long as you post content that is related to your business or area on a regular basis. Pick some ideas HERE to boost your blog’s traffic. If you always publish the same day of the week, people will start expecting your publications. For example, this theatre in Ann Arbor uses a blog and posts an article at least once a week. Start a Customer Newsletter As long as you don’t send one 3 times a day, newsletters are often welcomed by customers. Once a month might fit perfectly, as it keeps your clients aware of your presence without annoying them. It’s a nice way to create another link between you and your clients. You can show your newest products, promote your latest blog entry, distribute your latest offer, or advertise upcoming events. Use Pictures … A Lot! Pictures of your staff, your local business, or even regular clients help create a human relationship between your company and your customers. Using real pictures in your website and through your social media network shows everyone that your company is not only a business but a human adventure. You are local: touch people by showing them local things! A famous local person comes into your business? Take a picture and share it! Everything you can do to make your customers feel like you care about them as human beings is great and worth a lot of effort. For example, this Café in Ann Arbor uses a lot of pictures taken on its location. We can see real customers enjoying their meals, and the trust given to the website is therefore increased.   4 Ways to Link Online and Offline Marketing Leverage Calls to Action Online that will Link to Offline Actions A “call to action” is an invitation for visitors to take a specific action. It can be following you on social media, joining a group, or printing a coupon. The visitor becomes an actor, and he is now linked to your company through this “call to action”. You can use this concept to make your customers take online actions that will have offline repercussions. Let’s say you own a restaurant, a “call to action” could be to ask visitors to complete a quick survey about their favorite meal in the restaurant, and they will win a 20% discount on their next meal. You made the customer take an action towards you, you made him remember what he liked about your restaurant, and you incited him to come back! Use Local Online Advertising With Google, Facebook or even Stumbleupon you can target people in a very specific area. If you want only people living in your town to see your ad, you can make that happen! You could even advertise only to people searching on cell phones in your area. Local online advertising can be very effective and is affordable: you invest only in the precise traffic you want! Use Tools to Bring Offline Visitors Online and Vice Versa Linking online and offline marketing is easier and much more important than you could think. You can help achieve that by using various tools, such as QR codes. They link your online and offline marketing for anyone who has a smart phone, and they cost nothing! Why should we avoid something free that may help? Learn more about how to use QR codes in your marketing. Include your social icons in all your brochures and posters, or even on the front door of your business! Make sure every customer is aware of the benefits of joining your online community. Do not hesitate in taking pictures of some customers (with their permission, obviously) and using them in your social networks. It links the “real” with the “virtual”. Transform Paper-Based Loyalty Cards into an Online Benefit If you […]

The Challenge of Calculating Social Media ROI

by Charlie @ Long Tail Logic – Social Media Management and Search Optimization

Social Media ROI has a well earned reputation of being hard to calculate.  A quick Google search, for example, reveals dozens of articles on the subject without much of a consensus on the solution.  Search Amazon and you’ll find books on the subject that end up being more about implementing social media strategies than actually measuring their impact.  This difficulty and disagreement stems from two facts.  First, the traditional formula displayed on the right often doesn’t appear to work due to the nebulous nature of the gains social media provides.  Second, social media marketing provides quite a few diverse benefits that vary depending on the particular case.  In the end, the most difficult aspect of calculating the ROI of social media is identifying the wide variety of benefits. Unlike most marketing methods that generate a single measurable return such as sales or traffic, social media can provide a wide variety of less tangible benefits.  For example, common benefits include direct and referral traffic, direct sales, ad impressions, customer service savings, brand equity, market intelligence, and improved search engine ranking.  To be fair, it is beyond me to calculate the particular value of some of these benefits — brand equity for example.  Most benefits, though, are quite measurable, despite occasionally being a challenge. Lets look at sales.  Quite a few regular activities in social marketing generate sales, directly or indirectly.  Coupons or promotions cause immediate sales.  Responses to customers can encourage purchases and retain customers after bad experiences.  Insightful or fun posts that get shared can generate new customers who later buy, and can drive traffic to your website.  Once again, the solution is to segment.  Value customer interaction just as you would in your contact center.  Apply your website’s conversion rate to traffic generated.  Use unique coupon codes on social media so you can separate it from the same promotion elsewhere.  Simply calculate the value of each type of interaction separately. A lot of marketers end up focusing on traffic as the primary objective of social media marketing.  This is a reasonable approach for a number of reasons.  While there are a number of effects of social media marketing that don’t result in additional website traffic (like customer service and branding), the great majority do.  Also, focusing on traffic removes outside factors that can affect the sales impact of marketing on social media — conversion rate in particular.  In the end, though, it comes back to figuring out what applies to your particular business.  Determine what needs to be measured, and actually measuring becomes much simpler.

How To Add an Amazon Affiliate Store to a WordPress Blog

by Charlie @ Long Tail Logic – Social Media Management and Search Optimization

While most of our work in WordPress revolves around content marketing and search engine optimization, we occasionally need to monetize a blog (usually personal, not corporate).  Becoming an Amazon Affiliate is one of the easiest ways to immediately start building an income from a high traffic blog.  Within fifteen minutes of setting up your account, you can have banner & sidebar ads on relevant products integrated into your site, and you can add an affiliate link to any product you reference.  Once that is done, it may also be worth your time to set up an aStore for your blog — especially in light of how simple it is to integrate.  Setup requires comfort accessing and editing your wordpress theme files, and that’s about it. There are a couple ways to add an Amazon Affiliate store to a wordpress blog.  You could build your own store using wordpress posts as item pages.  This is very time consuming, but pays dividends in terms of design and SEO.  You could also create your own aStore theme to match your blog design.  What I recommend, and what I’ll be going over here, is using the default aStore design, but matching colors with your WordPress theme.  This isn’t a perfect method, but it’s effective and extremely fast.  I’ll be using a store I recently added to Geographical Perspectives as an example. Start by logging into your Amazon Affiliate account.  Click on the blue aStore tab, select ‘Add an aStore,’ and select the tracking code you would like to use.  The next screen will allow you to select the products you want to offer in your store.  For the purposes of this tutorial, I’d recommend selecting a large category and adding relevant keywords: This will fill your store with products and allow you to see spacing and final appearance before you manually build up your product list. Next we need to configure the appearance of the store.  For this step, you will need to get color values from your wordpress theme.  Many themes allow you to adjust the color scheme.  If this is the case, you can simply go into the appearance control panel and copy the color code.  If this doesn’t work, you can use the Print Screen key to take a screenshot of your theme and past it into a photo editor.  Use the color picker to select the colors you would like to use for the header, background, text, and links, and copy the color code into the Amazon Affiliate theme editor: Once the colors are matched, enter a name for your store and turn the header off.  We’ll be integrating this into your blog, so you won’t need a separate header.  When you hit continue, you’ll encounter another page of preferences.  The only suggestion I have here is to turn customer reviews off — they tend to take up a great deal of space.  Without them, you can cut down a great deal on the vertical space you need for your store.  Once you’re done, click ‘Finish & get link.’ Your store is now complete — all we need to do is integrate it into wordpress.  Clicking ’embed my store using an inline frame’ reveals the code we need to do this.  Now that we have that, we’ll need to create a template in WordPress.  To do this, copy your page.php file from your theme directory in your WordPress install.  Rename the file ‘store’ or something similar, and add the following code to the top of the page: <?php /* Template Name: aStore */ ?> Also, delete the following code from the file: <?php get_sidebar(); ?> In the content area of the template, replace the existing code with your iframe html you just got from amazon.  Save this and upload it back into your theme folder.  In most cases, the resulting code will look something like this: As you may notice, I edited the code Amazon provided, to better fit my needs.  I changed the width to 100%, reduced the height considerably, and changed scrolling to auto.  I’d highly recommend doing all three of these things. Now simply create a new page on your blog, select the ‘store’ page template under ‘Page Attributes’ on the right, and publish.  Add this page to your navigation, and you’re done!  Feel free to check out the result of this method here, and leave a comment if you have any questions!

The 5 Best Ways to Drive Shocking Traffic to a Brand New Blog

by Alexandre @ Long Tail Logic – Social Media Management and Search Optimization

  In this article we will guide you to an incredible amount of traffic immediately after the launching of your blog. We’ll see why Guest blogging is so important, and how to make the most of Social Bookmarking. After a quick view at professional social groups and how to use them for traffic, we shall get into the huge taboo of paying to advertise your blog. We’ll finish by looking into backlinking and how to make the most of those who copy your content. The first step is to create a quality blog (one can never insist too much on that). Once you have mastered the concepts of WordPress (for example) and you have a blog you are proud of, you can start thinking of how to attract as many people as you can to it. We will assume here that you prepared a lot of content ahead, and that you already have 15-20 articles of a good quality. Select your 3-5 best pieces of art, and do not publish them! Save them for later — you’ll understand why shortly. Select some others to be published in the future according to your schedule — regular publications are very important in blogging: not only for SEO but to ensure your audience that you are able to bring good quality content on a consistent basis.   3 free, easy-to-do and very effective steps to quickly boost your traffic   Social bookmarking What is social bookmarking? It’s basically the same concept as the bookmarks you insert in your book to remember where you left it. These sites allows the users to “bookmark” sites or pages that they find valuable for others to see. Depending on your content you might prefer one or another social bookmark, but the important part is to share some (or all) your content there. You will benefit from their traffic and SEO. People will read your articles there and, upon finding good quality content, they might share your articles with their friends. Don’t forget to add an author’s description, and always link to your blog. Here are five very popular Social Bookmarking sites: digg.com reddit.com stumbleupon.com newsvine.com diigo.com   One important thing to remember, though: if you just come to these sites to publish your content once in a while, your links may go unnoticed.  To increase the impact of sharing on these sites, visit them on a regular basis and share other’s content, for example. Being part of the community gives more credit to your publications.   Social Media groups We know you are already comfortable with social media, and you are probably already using it to publicize your work.  There is more you can do, though.  Most of the professional social sites like LinkedIn have groups you can join. So do it! Join every group relevant to your area, and share your articles on them! Share the ones on your blog, and those which you Guest Posted on other’s sites. Make sure you share every article, but be careful not to spam! Don’t share everything right away — follow the same schedule you’ve developed for your blog.  Just as with social bookmarking sites, participate in the community and more people will pay attention to your posts.   Guest blogging Now that we have a decent blog with a lot of content in it, it is time to catch some traffic. The first move would be to look toward Guest Blogging. What is Guest Blogging? You approach a famous blog relevant to your own blogging area, and offer them free content. The famous blog already benefits from great traffic and SEO. You could get some of theirs by having a great article on their homepage! This is why you should keep your best articles in stock and not publish them right away on your blog. Blogs are chronological, the most recent content is on the top. Why would you want your best stuff to be immediately buried? You want to promote your best articles so people will want to come to your blog, subscribe, etc. Not all blogs will welcome you warmly. Lots of famous blogs are often approached by similar requests and refuse to look at any proposal of that type. So how can you find where to guest blog? You can start by looking through Google, and/or going through this list of 500 places to syndicate your content. You can also look through this list of 100 blogs that are welcoming guest posts. Once you’ve found it, don’t pressure the blog! Prepare a nice pitch to convince them that they need your (free and amazing) content! Spend some time going through their publications; make sure nothing has ever been posted on the topic you are offering, etc. The important part in this preparation is to constantly remember that the blog may be contacted dozens of times every day with the same request. You need to make sure that if they accept a guest, you will be that guest. Make sure you don’t post the same article in two different guest posts. That would give your blog a bad image. Advertise your blog! Why and how you should do it.     Make no mistake, as the Romans said: nervi belli pecunia. Money is the sinew of War. By implementing the free techniques described above, you can reach a certain amount of traffic quickly. But in order to achieve maximum success, you should reinvest in your blog. People have always been reluctant to pay for advertising their blog. Nobody minds paying for advertising their website, their company or even their personal events. Bloggers, on the other hand seem to view advertising themselves as taboo and swear by organic methods. Well if you are a thirteen year old girl and you write about how wonderful your school day was, yes it might be overreacting to pay for advertising that. But if you are serious about what you do, and you really want your blog to be successful, why shouldn’t you invest some of your money along with your time? You already spent a […]

19 Keys to The Perfect On-Page SEO!

by Alexandre @ Long Tail Logic – Social Media Management and Search Optimization

What is On-Page SEO and Why is it So Important? On-page SEO consists of ensuring the details search engines (such as Google, Bing or Yahoo) look for in your webpage’s content are set up ideally. It encompasses everything from the URL to the titles of the images you are using: basically any detail that will be registered by search engines when they index your site and try to determine both what your page is about, and how valuable your page is to searchers of that topic. If you want your page, blog, article, or website to be ranked #1 on Google, this is something you must consider.   12 Things to Check for On-Page Optimization   Research and Define Your Targeted Keyword The first step in the process is finding the keywords you want to be ranked for. You will put all your efforts onto those precise keywords, so choose wisely! You will increase your chances of ranking highly if your keywords are not used a lot by other websites.  Also, if there is high demand for your precise keywords, you’ll receive more traffic when you succeed in ranking. How is this possible? Fortunately, you can check the competitiveness of keywords with various online tools, such as Google Adwords, Semrush or Word Tracker.  Developing a keyword strategy is a topic worthy of a blog post of its own (or several), but as long as you seek to find the highest volume search terms with the lowest competition, you will be on the right track. Use Your Keyword in Your URL The first thing the engines are going to see is your URL and domain name, so put make sure your keywords are prominently featured in them! It works in order: the first word of your URL is the best spot, the second right after, and It goes on. If you have a long URL, use hyphens ( – ) between each important term, and get rid of useless words that will dilute your important ones (like “and” “the” “to” “for”, etc.). If you are using WordPress, the Smart Slug plugin automatically removes the connections words such as “the” or “a” in your URL. Optimize Your Page Titles When thinking of an attractive, traffic-driving, sexy title, you must also consider Search Engine Optimization. You should use your keyword in it, the closer to the beginning the better. Also, note that your title must be fewer than 70 characters if you want it to be displayed completely by Google in the search results. Seventy is the maximum limit, but you should stay under 65, as the place occupied by characters depend on the characters you use. Create a Quality Meta Description The meta description is a different sort of SEO tool. Google does not consider this content in search engine page ranking, but you must add it if you do not want Google to use an automatic clip of your content as the summary of your page. Make sure the description is clear and engaging, as this is what sells search users on your page over other search results. Try to keep it fewer than 155 so the Search Engines will display it properly. Use Your Keyword and Vary it It is kind of obvious but needs to be said: you have to use your keyword in your content. Four times at least to make it clear for the engines that this is the keyword they want to rank you for. Vary it! Use abbreviations, plural, singular… You may want to use several synonyms also, to target related keywords for improving your ranking in the general topic you are talking about. Start Your Main Text With Your Keyword As we said for the tittle, search engine spiders will crawl your content from the start to the end. The closer to the beginning of your first paragraph your keyword is, the better! Optimize Your Sub-titles To organize a page, there are titles called Headers. Header 1 (H1) is the first title, Header 2 (H2) is the subtitle of Header 1, and it goes on… Google only considers H1, H2 and H3 for ranking. You should use and optimize these sub-titles and make sure your keywords are in H1, H2 and H3. Use Your Images Images are very important: for each image you can configure a Title and an “Alt tag”. “Alt Tag” corresponds to the text displayed when the image cannot appear. When you pass your mouse over an image, the Title appears in a small box. You want both the Title and the Alt tag to contain your keyword. It is better if the two are different, as search engines recognize new and re-used content. Make the Most of Your Internal Links Internal links are great. They are used in a variety of ways, such as linking to other, similar articles you wrote to invite your audience to go further in the research. It is great for your traffic, but also essential for your SEO. When using them, make sure your anchor text is wisely chosen. The anchor text is the text displayed as the “link”, the “click HERE” instead of “click on http://www.youshouldclickhere.ltl “. You can use your keyword in the anchor text, and that will help your SEO. For example: you can find more information about webmarketing for local business here. Add Some Pertinent Outbound Links By adding pertinent links to other websites, you can manage two things. First, you give the opportunity to your readers to go further. It is a sign of reliability. Secondly, search engines take the presence of external links into account when they rank your page.  Having external links consistently correlates to higher search result ranking.  For a more detailed explanation of this, check out this article on the SEO value of outbound links. Note that if you make the link open a new tab by using the [target=”_blank”] html tag, you are likely to keep your visitor on your site, whereas if by clicking on your […]
