How to Blast Your Content Across the Globe

You hit publish and wait. Nothing. So you close your browser, go eat a cookie, and come back. Two hits. Your mother texts you to say she read your blog post. That brings it down to one hit. You’re baffled. The article went to all your social media accounts. There should be more eyes on your content than that. Well, you’re probably not getting your content out through the correct channels. Here’s how to blast your content across the globe. 1. Content Syndication If you’ve done SEO, you probably think you can’t republish your content anywhere else. Google will look at your content as plagiarism, right? That’s not exactly true. If the site on which you’re re-publishing is high enough authority and it’s obvious they’re republishing your content, then it shouldn’t effect your SEO. Thus you should use content syndication. Content syndication is re-publishing through a third party. This type […]

You Suck at SEO So, Outsource It!

You’re staring bleary-eyed at the screen. This is only your tenth topic and you’re just ready to smash your head through your monitor. I get it. The SEO numbers game is so damn mind-numbing sometimes. And if you just aren’t seeing results or it’s taking more time than it’s worth, then you’re probably ready to just quit. Don’t quit just yet. You can get other people to do your work for you. And it’s usually cheaper than you think, especially considering the time you save. Here’s how to tell whether you should outsource to an SEO service. What to Consider Most of the time, price is equally correlated with quality. If you’re looking for pro-level content, you’re going to have to pay for pro-level content from a pro-level managed SEO company. If you’re looking for something that’s great when it comes to numbers boosting, you can sacrifice on content quality. […]

What Internet Marketers Can Learn From The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

In the 50s, women weren’t supposed to do stand-up comedy. They were supposed to watch the children, obsess over their waist sizes, and cook (if they didn’t have a servant). But a brave few women did take to the stage and raise a middle finger to the patriarchy. These women went through hell to earn their right to make people laugh.

Is Brochure Marketing a Waste of Paper?

You’re walking down the street and a Green Peace volunteer hands you a flyer. You glance at its colorful graphs spelling out the planet’s doom. Then you toss it in the recycle bin. “What a waste of paper.” You think. But is it really a waste of paper? Sure, plenty of people did exactly what you did. But how many donated to the cause? How many became volunteers that day? Analog marketing and online marketing follow similar rules. It’s just that one deals in electrons and the other in recycled trees. Here’s why analog marketing tactics are still effective in very specific circumstances. 1. Boosts Trust We spend so much time garnering trust in online marketing. We build profiles. We create privacy policies. We make out NAP consistent across the interwebs. But what are we doing in the real world to create trust. Leaflet distribution is one of the easiest […]
