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.
The last 20 years has seen the internet evolve from a little understood technological breakthrough to a vital part of society and our everyday lives. In that time, the quality and design of the websites we visit has also transformed as user expectations increased.
August 2nd 2013 sees the start of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (or Festival Fringe if you prefer), the biggest arts festival in the world. Around 1,500 acts will all descend on Edinburgh in a bid to get good reviews, possibly get spotted, find agents and of course to bring in the audiences.
We’re inspired every day by the things we see in online marketing and often there are key voices that we see time and time again sharing and creating incredible resources. In this post we asked 17 of the Koozai team to share the marketers who inspired them and to explain why. We’d also love for you to do the same in the comments.
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.
Real time marketing is the latest craze to hit the digital world. Brands are jumping on current events as they unfold while reaping the rewards of interacting with their target audience. Tube strikes, Oscar selfies and football transfers have all been successfully exploited by brands ready to market in the moment. So what are the best platforms for real time marketing, and is it cost effective?
Sadly headlines like the one above were popping up all over the media throughout the last year. As brands flock to establish social profiles and social marketing becomes more prevalent, we were bound to see an increase in blunders such as these.
In the modern digital age, businesses need to harness the power of an up-to-date website, as well as regularly maintained social platforms. More can be gained from using both of these platforms together, compared to a single entity alone – so long as they are both being used properly of course.
Usually when a company wants to enter the online space they will find a way to create an online presence, generally in the form of a website and work hard to get the website live as soon as possible. This is usually met with a disappointing flow of visitors to the website and a lack of website leads/conversions.
Before the 4th July 2013 most people (who could remember) knew Katie Hopkins as a former candidate on the BBC show The Apprentice in 2006. Of those of us who watched the show we remember her as the one we all enjoyed hating. She was the show’s villain for that series. Her outrageous claims on her CV that she would do anything to get what she wanted – including her husband whom she stole from his ex-wife, did little to warm the hearts of Sir Alan Sugar or the TV audience.
