Social Media Marketing Tips, Articles and Resources

Social Media is a very significant aspect of online marketing, given that more and more people are utilizing different social platforms. It has been a efficient channel for driving traffic, as most of social-driven visitors tend to consume web-based content more compared to other inbound channels.

You can check out more of my social media marketing tips and strategies below, in which most are focused on integrating social-related methodologies to other forms of online marketing, such as SEO, link building and content marketing.

Photographer

Few years ago, one of my childhood friends offered me to start a digital photography business with him, though it may not be of my interest, I always opt myself to be a solid wingman in supporting my friends’ personal/professional ambitions. I’m no fan of art, but I do know how to sense and distinguish things that may look appealing to others – commercially or artistically.

Personally, I don’t know anyone who owns a professional photoblog or photography-related website, but I guess this post may serve as an advice for my future self if ever I decide to start a business related to this field, and probably this will be somehow useful to my readers as well.

Circle

Welcome to my third edition of curated/roundup post series. This volume is a short one and will be highlighting the recent updates and works from my circle (those that I communicate with over the web) and also some other cool posts, which I think are worth sharing.

I will be contributing regularly (as a blogger) to Traffic Travis and Affilorama’s blog so you might want to check them out as I will be sharing more SEO-related posts there weekly/monthly. I was also invited by Technorati to be a contributor on their business channel and I’ll be publishing posts there every month.

1 2 Punch Marketing

There are no known universal solutions or formulas to a successful web marketing campaign, knowing that every industry has to adapt to its own given nature. In fact, online marketing strategies that work for other niches not necessarily means would work for your niche for reasons such as the size of its target audience, the ability of the industry to be of extreme interest and/or its natural marketability/profitability/sustainability.

However, there is one, which I personally believe can work on any industry over time of efficient execution, where the process will only require you two things to focus on – the quality of content and the quality of conversations.

Emerge

Earlier today, while writing a blog post for Affilorama, I came across a local site that really caught my attention. It is a blog that supports a movement – Janette Toral’s Influential Blogger – which I think what our country somehow needs at this point of information age.

What I really liked about this project was that they (Janette and the sponsors) are encouraging local bloggers to step up in hopes of uplifting our countries’ blogosphere by letting participants share and nominate the blogs that they think are influential as based on the award’s requirements…

brand development

Brand is the core element of most lucrative online businesses and websites today. From a cool business name to a striking logo or to a unique identity, a site’s brand appears to be its solid ground, which makes most of its parts possible to be scaled, given that a highly trusted brand looks more appealing not only to its targeted audience, but to other related market as well.

With today’s modern and powerful age of marketing, there are many channels – and probably more coming – that businesses can utilize to get their products/services in front of their target audience in areas of online marketing such as search engine optimization, pay-per click, social media marketing, affiliate marketing, mobile marketing and email marketing.

Social signals is one of the most notable addition to Google’s search ranking factors this year, as it is a strong indication of user activity or behavior on pages all across the web. These signals are basically retrieved from popular social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and perhaps soon via Google +1, determining pages that receive a lot of attention and social popularity in order to be returned as results to relevant search queries.

The main principle of Google and Bing in using these signals is to locate fresh, relevant and significant materials over the web (news, resource, etc) through viral sharing and natural prominence.

Traffic_by_digirazi

Today was quite an exciting day – mainly because I was already excited to write this post up just after waking up. What I think I felt this morning was destiny talking to me directly.

I guess the perfect way to begin this short story is to start off with how the day started. My morning routine is not quite unusual; it usually starts with me going online on Skype, checking my mail, my new Twitter account, my blog’s dashboard and smoking my first stick of the day.

getting editorial links

An editorial link is a one-way link placed within the body of a content that is given naturally by other websites to specify a resource. Basically, it’s a form of citation on the web, which generally indicates that the destination of the link is the original source of the procured data, idea, concept or statement.

In link building, I personally believe that these types of links – editorial or one-way in-content links – are the most powerful and the ones that really carry weight in signaling search engines that a certain content is offering so much value and they should return this piece on their results for people to see.
