With the shift in the search marketing (SEO) landscape over recent years away from heavy focuses on keyword optimisation, it is high time for all digital marketing functions to become key elements of an SEO strategy, and for other marketing (including offline) functions to also support growth in website traffic.

Measuring The True Value Of Audience Engagement Across Digital Media

The success of your digital marketing initiatives can be easily measured by engagement. The level of interaction created between your brand and your audience in the digital space can be very telling when it comes to the effectiveness of your marketing efforts. But, not all engagement is created equal and it's important that you mind which types of engagement are most valuable to your brand.
      Engagement is typically defined as a click, comment, share or even a hover — virtually any action that connects the user to your brand. For each online medium, the engagement tactics can vary dramatically, as can your expectations for ‘success.' Generally knowing your options and how to best leverage the landscape can help to release your campaign with the greatest possible effectiveness while managing stakeholder expectations from start to finish.

Pitfalls and Profits of Using Rented Lists: The Devil is in the Details

Is using a rented list all that bad? What's all the hype?
      Those questions may have crossed your mind while searching for ways to expand your organization's message to a greater audience. It's an intriguing idea really, but honestly, it falls into the get-rich-quick schemes that are plastered across most marketing landscapes. And for those who keep their lists pristine and treat each member or subscriber as an ounce of gold, the thought of using a rented list is unfathomable.

3 Tips to Maximize the Synergy of Social Media and Content Marketing

I'd really rather not advertise on social media, simply because of the old saying "... you know your web site sucks if there's advertising!" But t least Brett Relander softens the bane of sucking badly ... he writes :
      Are social media marketing and content marketing two disparate entities, or could they perhaps be a marriage made in heaven? Unfortunately, many brands approach both as if one has nothing to do with the other. The simple fact is that social media marketing cannot function without content. If you have no content, you have nothing to share, tweet or post. Without valuable content, you cannot drive engagement on social media. Therefore, it only stands to reason that content serve as the heart of any successful social media marketing campaign.
