Why your company should be using Email Marketing!


Email marketing is directly marketing a message to a group of people through email. In its broadest sense, every email sent to current clients or potential clients could be considered email marketing. Email marketing is an extremely cost-effective way to communicate with prospects and existing customers. Similar to direct mail, email is a faster, cheaper and easier way to communicate with your prospects and customers.

Email marketing is used by many companies to send advertisements or to inform about what business they offer. It is a way of building loyalty, trust but more importantly brand awareness.

How to make your Videos SEO friendly

Video SEO

Online video marketing is the latest internet phenomenon with YouTube being the second largest search engine platform behind Google. A recent study showed that 70.8% of internet users watch online videos daily. 48 hours of video are uploaded to You Tube every minute, resulting in nearly 8 years of content uploaded every day. It’s not enough to just have a great quality video with good content, you must optimise your videos to boost maximum viewing and get it ranked on the major search engines.

Why make your videos SEO friendly?

Video SEO must be implemented to ensure that the search engines find your video content, index it, and display it when specific keywords are entered as search terms. With traditional web pages, Google crawls them to discover and index web content. Unfortunately, Google can’t read Flash very well (yet), and as a result, most video content is invisible to Google’s search crawlers, therefore it is essential to optimise the videos in every way we can.

The +1 option is getting a lot of buzz these days. Everyone wants to know how to best exploit the feature to get more traffic.

First of all, let me debunk a common myth. The +1 button does not affect your Google rank. Many people seem to think that getting a lot of +1s will boost their rank, but this won’t happen. That’s not what the button is for. The +1 button allows you to share a link to your stream on Google+. What this does is get the link more exposure through the Google+ network, but not on the Google search engine itself.

Online marketing should be a must for your company whether you are a long standing business or just about to open your doors.

Digital marketing for your business is an absolute MUST if you want to generate leads and drive sales! You can implement your digital marketing by having a competent agency carry out this for you and paying them to look after your online promotion.

Paying an agency to outsource your online advertising and marketing has its advantages and disadvantages. The main disadvantage is the cost.
