“We are calling regarding your current website placement in Google. We have an opening on the first page of Google for your website, and we can get you placed there, for a huge increase in your local visibility. It’s available now, but only on a first come, first served basis, and it’s important that your owner of the company call me right away at this direct number in California: (949) xxx-xxx. Thank you.”
This is such a sales pitch! But, I give them 5 stars for ballsy-ness. How well do you think this pitch works in today’s “social, thank you economy”? And, will this be a long-term, personal client relationship?
If this is the only way they are marketing their business, I feel sorry for them. (and especially since they are not doing research. they called an optimization company. pretty lame.)
Today’s world loves and craves rich media and quality content.
Entertainment and education both are important to our lives, online and off. However, if you are a small business owner, creating content can be as hard as waking up to a jarring alarm clock (soothing sounds from an iPhone doesn’t help!)… you are a bit confused, shocked and feel like placing the cover over your head, you’re caught off-guard.
But, creating content for your business can be made easy. Especially if you know how to leverage technology and what you already have – your business knowledge and experience. You can do this efficiently yourself, or even get your assistant or family member to help you.
The idea is to start simple, test it out, and make modifications as you go. Plan-Do-Review-Modify will work in your favor.

You’ll learn the important next steps beyond simply blogging, and what strategies, tools, themes and plug-ins you should use for your business.

Making money from viral traffic is a bit different than making money from any other kind of traffic.
People who land on your website generally come there for a specific piece of content, because a friend of theirs shared it. They often don’t know who you are or what your site is about.
As a result, most people find that the bounce rate on viral traffic is much higher and their conversion rates much lower. That said, there are still many ways to make money from viral traffic.
Here are innovative ways to get some (money) traction for your action:
There is an idea that says: “build it, and they will come”. I’m here to tell you it’s a fallacy…unless you think about, plan and execute your _____________ (insert what you are creating here)…..well, “just right”.
And, when it comes to the Internet at large, there is nothing worse than assuming that business or traffic to your websites and social media properties will just “happen”. There is a clear path to success online, if you know how.
Now, much is written on this topic. There are many ways to drive traffic (visitors) to your pages, videos and multi-social (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, etc) platforms and back. And, it’s not just online. Billions of dollars are transacted each year from very successful offline campaigns. From lumpy-mail, postcards, tearsheets, brochures to email marketing, social media, PPC (pay per click) and SEO (search engine optimization), for example.
Truth be told: there are only 3 ways to become a success online with your personal or company brands.
Once restricted to use by individuals (students), Facebook has become a valuable business tool, both as a communication tool, but also as a (social) traffic and leads generating one.
If becoming a Facebook social media marketer makes you wonder where to begin, here are five things you should do on Facebook for your company and small business.
We assume that you have a profile set up on Facebook already. You’ll need to set up and verify your account via the mobile option and email.
Let’s get started.
The seemingly unstoppable rise of social media has changed how people make connections and how they communicate.
In the mere seven years since Facebook was launched – it wasn’t the first social networking site but it has grown into the undisputed market leader – social media sites have spread their tendrils everywhere.
Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter architect Jack Dorsey probably never envisaged their creations being used to ferment revolution but, while for many users they remain merely a way to keep in touch with friends, family and casual acquaintances, they’re increasingly being employed for other purposes.
Jobs are both advertised and sought using social media sites and businesses both large and small are realizing that these sites can make wonderful resources.
Let’s look at some of the issues and topics around social media and global cultures.
As a brand new business, it is essential that you take steps to move in the right direction in terms of social media marketing.
Hiring a Social Media Marketing Small Business strategist can go a long way in helping you meet the ever changing needs of business in social media and social networking.
These specialists are well versed in everything that it takes to succeed in social media marketing on the Internet today. For example, you may believe it’s important to reach a higher follower count on Twitter, but the number may not matter as much as you think, and your audience doesn’t “speak” on Twitter.
You’ll save money and time by starting out correctly. Trying to save a little money initially may / can come back to hurt you.
Just like when building a new house… you want the ground it stands on to be sound, and all the doors and windows are correctly placed from the blueprint documents, etc.

Sometimes small business owners can become so preoccupied with developing a marketing plan, acquiring customers and formulating ways to generate capital that they forget to purchase one of the most important things that can protect their online business in the long haul: insurance.
Truth be told there are many risks associated with launching an online start-up.
You need to ensure that incase there is any kind of property damage, loss, or if someone sues you, you will be fully or at least partially protected.
That said, this post are just ‘some’ of the major insurance policies/plans a small business owner should look-in to in order to receive some decent coverage.
