This week sees London host the long awaited Olympic Games. With the event being dubbed as the first truly Digital games, it got me thinking; Digital Marketing has truly changed the way sport is consumed, packaged and sold to consumers. Let’s take a closer look at what I mean.
Today we have Liam Veitch from Tone Agency who takes us behind the lead generation process at his agency, by explaining how inbound marketing techniques and tools can be a great way to draw in extra conversions.
Last week I attended the Spring Symposium with MarkMonitor at the Museum of London, where the main topic of discussion is brands and how to protect your brand online.
Some very interesting presentations and a lot of the information was new to me, having not worked directly on a site that would suffer with counterfeit products being sold on domains pretending to be the actual brand.
What I want to discuss in my post here though is one area that really caught my attention; the expansion of new Generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs). gTLDs will allow companies to turn their brands into domains (.brand/company name). They will also allow companies to create broad product groups like .finance, .bank or .shop.
The internet industry are calling gTLDs ‘dotBrand’ and are set to fundamentally change the internet and how websites do business online.
Alongside “SEO is dead” posts (we’ll get to them another day) the other thing I hear constantly is that SEO ruined the Internet. Their argument for this is that through the pursuit of adding keywords, gathering links and leaving web footprints, that the online environment is worse because of SEO. In reality SEO has helped the web in a lot of ways, and you don’t have to look far to find the real offenders who are damaging the Internet, with the term digital marketing being dragged through the mud in so many places. In this article I share the worst offenders in my opinion.
Join me as I take a look at the trends in content marketing so far this year and look forward at what 2013 holds for the rapidly changing digital landscape.
I’m going to start by saying the obvious: “Happy Valentine’s Day.”
Sorry I didn’t get you a card, I did try emailing you about some ideas I had, but you never replied.
Villanueva found that a customer acquired through word of mouth was more profitable to a business than if they were gained by other means. He also found that opinions regarding brands shared between online users are more influential on consumer behaviour than any other traditional type of marketing, such as offline advertising. This, coupled with the growing emphasis placed on social signals for SEO purposes, means what people are saying about brands online (electronic word of mouth) is now more important than ever.
Customer feedback is one of the most important tools at your disposal. It’s an opportunity to get real people’s responses to your services, your brand and your products. It’s a free, open forum for your customers to speak their minds – and whether positive or negative, customer feedback is a huge asset.
No I’m not a relative, I’m not even a fan, I could only name you around three of his songs at the most; no it’s just that I’m also Andy Williams.
