Celebrating 10 Years in the Blend

10 Years in the Blend – A Celebration and a Trip Down Memory Lane

It was way back in January 2008, and I distinctly remember talking to a Dutch banker on the little island of Don Dhet (Laos) in the middle of the Mekong River who was telling me about his sudden redundancy from his City of London high finance job.

Around that time, I was living in Shoreditch, near The City and the words ‘redundancy’ and ‘banker’ never appeared in a sentence together. As we all know now, this was the start of a global recession that unfortunately continues to this day.

Conversion Rates

“It’s much easier to double your business by doubling your conversion rate than by doubling your traffic.” Jeff Eisenberg

BLSM4.1

Companies today are extremely focused on building their customer base and establishing a massive market for their products. It seems as though traffic is king when it comes to online interactions and the focus for many marketing campaigns. Companies feel as though if they can draw someone to their page, they should be able to make a sale of their products. By making efforts to massively draw traffic into their page regardless of where it’s coming from, many companies are successful in making sales.
However if the end game is sales, does it not make more sense to reach out to a small customer base to ensure continuous sales and a higher conversion rate?
Continuous sales are every startup companies dream. It will take a long time to build up a customer base to the point where a company can feel comfortable enough to expand. While many companies are making efforts to simply branch out and find new customers they forget about their existing customers for whom they could sell extra products.
Focusing more so on the conversion rate for the sale involves a bit more work than simply directing traffic.

A good social media account will be able to establish real interaction and loyalty with new customers so that a company has a much better shot at the conversion rate for continuous sales. Drawing traffic into your website is a great way to help boost your websites ranking, get your name out there and gained more notoriety, however it is the sales that will ensure the longevity of your business.
If you are a company that is struggling for sales turned to social media accounts and methods that you can use to connect with your customer base. Looking into social media management as well as online newsletters as a strategy for connecting with customers is a great way to double your conversion rate and double your sales through existing customers and visitors to your website.

Social marketing

Are you a Follower?

“On Twitter we get excited if someone follows us. In real life we get really scared and run away.”

Social marketing

Isn’t it amazing how far we’ve come with social media even within just the past few years. From the initial creation of a few websites where people could connect, eventually spawned more intuitive systems such as twitter that now connect us in ways we never thought possible. Twitter has started a revolution in connecting people across classes, cultures and creeds. Ultimately a follow online could be all that it takes to open up a new online community.

Twitter is also heavily used by celebrities, television shows and the news media to connect their content directly to users as well as hear feedback from members of the general public. With interfaces like twitter our idols, our news and the consumer businesses that we use every day are much more accessible.

As annoying as it may be to have someone constantly looking over your shoulder and following you, on Twitter this type of mentality is encouraged and celebrated. Keeping up on tweets and sharing tweets is what helps to gain you more followers. As much as we might hate having real-life stalkers, online stalkers can make us feel good and appreciated for the content that we are posting.

 

Because of these feelings it seems as though the twitter pages with the most online “power” are that with the most followers and supporters. Still it is amazing just how much a single tweet can spread throughout the community. With just one good insight, you can start a trend and trends happen on twitter hourly if not daily. While it is advantageous to build a large following so that content that you post on twitter is seen by a large community, you would be surprised just how far good content can go even if you are starting with just a few followers on your twitter page.

Understanding the best strategies for Twitter is really important for your business, so you should it wisely. In case you need more help, feel free to give us a comment or contact us here.

The Best Way to Engage Honestly with the Marketplace

“The best way to engage honestly with the marketplace via Twitter is to never use the words “engage,” “honestly,” or “marketplace.”

marketing online

So many companies and individuals get extremely hung up when it comes to connecting with their marketplace. While there are many people using Twitter for promotional materials it is very important to consider that you shouldn’t make your tweets overt advertisements.

People can get very tired of the same tweets over and over again and desire some type of engaging content in order to keep them following your page. Remember while it is important to advertise your product online is much more important to connect with your customer base to establish a brand loyalty and rapport.

Connect with your audience

Producing some promotional materials or even something as simple as answering some user questions online can really help to connect and make you more honest and engaging in your own marketplace. Social media is something that you have to work at it you may want to consider even using management systems to stay on top of all of the incoming tweets that you might get in a day.

Social media is not something that you can just automate or post out once a day. You need to make yourself available to respond to tweets and also to treat engaging content regularly. So many companies try to force interaction by asking questions and simply posting statements over and over again on their page. By producing excellent and engaging content for your Twitter page this is how you can form interaction.

When and how to tweet

Making timely responses, re-tweeting users posts and replying when they ask questions or all in good practice to developing a brand loyalty online. Twitter is a tool that is meant to be used for interaction and interaction isn’t something that should be forced. The best way to sell products using Twitter and beginning an interaction with the fan base is by not letting people realize that you are trying to sell them anything at all. A great product will sell itself with great marketing strategy.

There are plenty of ways to do online marketing but if you don’t know how to do it wisely you could be harming your business. Contact us today to boost your online presence.

Social Media is About the People! Not About Your Business

“Social Media is about the people! Not about your business. Provide for the people and the people will provide for you.”

“Social Media is about the people! Not about your business. Provide for the people and the people will provide for you.” – Matt Goulart

Social media

Many companies focus on social media with the standpoint of increasing their business sales. In reality social media is all about increasing the notoriety of your business as well as establishing loyalty with your customers. You can certainly drive sales through social media by posting new products and offers through your Twitter page, Facebook page or any other social media account that you might have but social media isn’t all about the sales.

Establishing a direct link between your customer base and your company is the true purpose of social media. Creating engaging content and regularly responding to your customers is one of the best ways that you can provide a high-quality social media experience. Instead of continuously posting links to new products, pose questions about how your products could be improved, work on forging relationships with valuable customers, and produce promotional material that lets people feel more connected to your company.

Make it personal 

By providing people with a link to your company that makes it feel more personal to them and offers a real connection to your products, you can work at establishing more loyalty. When people know how a product is made, who is working at your company and the types of ideas that you may have for the future they will be much more on board with everything that your company is planning as well as any future releases that you might have in mind for your product lines.

Taking consumer feedback online is also a great way that you can rapidly improve your products and understand some faults that might exist within your current product line. By providing this link to the people who are regularly purchasing your product and visiting your store locations, you can work at making them part of your company family I providing for them. Sales will result from this type of connection.

We would love to hear your questions and your feedback is very welcome. If you want to understand more about Social Media or get more attention for your business, feel free to contact us here.

1. What is the first reason why adding a post the right way to my website is important?

When you discover how to blog for business the right way it’s a win-win-win situation for everyone because your readers will love your content and spend longer on your page, reading the content, watching videos, making a comment and sharing it on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ Linkedin and now even Pinterest!

“Before We Reveal The 14 Killer Mistakes When Making A Post, Lets Look At A Typical Blog Post!”

how to blog for businessI’m not going pass comment on the blog post above, I’m sure you have seen dozens like it before. It’s not very exciting though is it?

Did you know that to cut and paste and article and add a photograph on a blog is only about 5% of the potential you can get out of it. There is little to no SEO benefit to it and it doesn’t invite any readers to invest any time it or indeed share it. Read on if you want to discover how to blog for business successfully…

 

“If Your Headline Doesn’t Exist You Are Leaving Money On The Table As Your Prospects Will Be Off In A Flash To Your Competitors Websites!”

 

Now, lets have a look how to make a blog post that ROCKS!

 

how to blog for business

…So What Were Those 14 Killer Website Mistakes That SEO Companies Make again?

1. Headline #1. First we need a compelling headline that includes the Keyword or phrase you want to rank for. This is called a H1 tag in SEO lingo. It works in two ways. Firstly like a newspaper headline it makes the post sticky and people stay on the site, and secondly it notifies the search engines what your post is about at helps the post rank online for that phrase.

2. Internal Links – We need 2 or 3 (anchor text) links that conect through to another relevant page on your website. These are often called hyper links by people, they are the  links that are in the actual text, In the example below the phrase ‘perfect teeth’ links to the ‘Before & After’ Page.

how to blog for business

3. Name You Photos – Photographs should be named with the keyword that you want to rank the page for when they are uploaded to your site.

This is called an ALT tag in SEO lingo. If the photo doesn’t load for some reason a name placeholder with the keyword will appear. More importantly the search engine bots reads it and this tag helps to tell Google what the page is really about, this increases the optimization of the page for the relevant keyword.

This is something that most websites are not optimized for and shows the difference between the experts and the cowboys.

how to blog for business

4. Video, Video, Video – Every blog post should have a video on it. If you don’t have a video you have produced yourself then take a relevant video from Youtube and embed it on the page. Try to find a relevant video with high viewing figures for best results.

Why do you want a video in your blog post? It’s what we call ‘sticky content’. What I mean by this is it will keep your viewers on the page longer. This helps to give a vote of confidence to Google that your site is a good site. This will boost your rankings, also remember Google own Youtube, so they like to optimize there own stuff, so do it!


Become The Known Local Expert With Video!

Now I’m only an armchair psychologist but the first point to note is people do business with people. We don’t do business with businesses! So you need to establish yourself as the rock star or celebrity in your area of expertise. The quickest and most effective way we can do this by using video

Video allows the viewers to get to know, like and trust you. When they know, like and trust you they will do business with you. That’s human nature.

Think about your business relationships for a moment. You probably meet some people and play golf, wine and dine others and even recommend them to your peers. You invest your time with these people because you know, like and trust them and then life becomes a little easier. We all would like an easier life, right?

5. SEO Trick – A cool little SEO trick that most people miss is to copy the name of the video and paste it above or below your video on the page. Then link the video name back to the Youtube page. Don’t ask me why this seems to work well, but it does!

how to blog for business

6 Headline #2 – Think of your blog post as a newspaper or magazine article. In magazines they break the copy up with headers, sub- headers and photos (and lots of ads). For the benefit of our readers and the search engine we use a H2 tag. Never use two H1 tags, as this will confuse the search engines.

7. External Link – Similar to the links in #2 but this time we don’t link to another relevant page on our website but we will link out to an ‘authority site’, a site liked by Google. Doing this is like making a vote of confidence to them but you get recognized and associated with them in Google’s eyes.

In the above example it’s the business Facebook page. It could be an industry association, University, Youtube Channel or even wikipedia. This demonstrates to the search engines that you are confident enough to allow your reader to further their understanding of your blog topic.

We only want one external link on the page as we don’t want to loose our reader. If possible make the link ‘no-follow’ so you don’t leak any Google juice from your site.

 8 See (3) ALT tags!!

“Are You Still With Us? Keep Going…Learning How to Blog for Business isn’t Difficult. To Do If You Have The Expert Knowledge…

But Many Don’t Know How To Do It… Or Have The Time or Invested Interest To Do It!

9. Headline #3 – The first headline is called a H1 tag, the second headline is called a H2 tag, the third headline is called a…. yep you guessed it, a H3 Tag (See #1 and 6)

10. Contact Us – At the end of every blog post ensure you have an internal link that takes your readers to your contact page. Remember we want to make it easy as possible for everyone visiting your blog to contact you by any means possible.

Your website is your shop window to the world. We need to entice them in and walk through the front door!

11. Call To Action – Have a clear call to action. Don’t be afraid to tell your readers what to do next. If you don’t tell them they will disappear. Tell them to contact you, write a comment below, tweet the blog post or share it on Facebook. If you don’t ask, you don’t get, but be nice!

(Hint, Hint!) If you like this report you may want to share it with your friends and business associates!!

12. Who Are You – Include your business name, full address and contact information at the foot of every blog post. This again will help you achieve better rankings in local search results.

“Nearly There… YES! It’s Time Consuming Reading. Let Alone Doing This For Every Post However…”

13. The Final Thing – Take the headline (H1) of your post and ensure it is the last thing on the page. This should be in the regular font and not a H1, H2 or H3. I like to change the color of the font too, don’t ask me why; I’m just strange like that!

14. There Isn’t A 14 – But I didn’t want to finish this paper on 13, I’m not superstitious but hey it’s the number 13 right!. So I thought I’d let you know that all the blogs we build have a ‘Translate’ button on them. Not everyone speaks English (I know I struggle sometimes) and as we are in the business of communication, it makes perfect sense to be able to communicate to as many people as possible. This little button goes some way of doing that.

“If You Want Success Online Would Do You Settle For Just 5% Or Insist On A 100% SEO’d Blog Post? Most SEO Companies Don’t Do It, It takes Time! But Doing It Right Can Make All The Difference To Enhance Your Profits, So At Blend Local Search Marketing We Ensure That It’s Done 100% Every Time”

If you’re just getting started or you need a better marketing strategy, here is a look at some of the best online marketing methods you can use for great website promotion.

Method #1 – Article Marketing

One of the top online marketing methods to use for website promotion is article marketing. This strategy works by writing articles on topics related to your website and then submitting them to an article website. When you submit your articles, you have the opportunity to add a resource box at the end of the article. Within this resource box, you can include your website address. People looking for good information on a particular subject often search for good articles that offer that information. Writing articles can help you establish yourself as an expert and you can get your website address out there, building helpful backlinks to your site.

Method #2 – Search Engine Optimization

Search engine optimization is another online marketing method you’ll definitely want to use. This method focuses on what you can do on your own website to optimize it for the search engines. You may have a great website, but if people cannot find you, you have a problem. Using SEO techniques on your website can increase your rankings on popular search engines, bringing in more targeted traffic to your website.

Method #3 – Social Media Marketing

The Best Online Marketing Methods

STOP! DO NOT Read this Blog: Be Local, Be Vocal, Vocalyze

Be Local, Be Vocal, Vocalyze

DO NOT Read this blog… Vocalyze! Listen, we are always on the look out for new ways to amplify our marketing messages and those of our clients. Vocalyze does exactly that!

vocalyzeVocalzye is web-text-to-speech technology that creates a real-time audio stream of your blog. “It does what… it reads your blog?”  Yes, but it gets even better…

Vocalyze can be easily installed on a WordPress blog as a plugin. (Also available for Blogger and Tumblr) You can download the Vocalyze WP plugin from here. Once you’ve configured it and installed the Toucan button on your page you’re set and ready to go. Now anyone visiting your blog can click on the button and listen to your posts instead of reading them. This is an ideal solution when you’re multi-tasking, have site-impaired visitors to your blog or at the end of a long day, like me, have just very tired eyes!

Now listen up! This is where Vocalyze gets really interesting. It also comes as an App so you can listen to any website from your smart phone – iPhone & Android. It’s a Free download and you can grab it here for iPhone. This wonderful App allows you to listen to your favorite websites or blog while you are commuting, walking the dog or like my business partner Lee, on the treadmill at the gym. It’s a great time management tool! There is also a Twitter integration feature in Vocalyze, so you could try adding your favorite comedian to your list for a few laughs.

The synthesized voice alternates between male and female and generally sounds pretty good… for a robot.
