Creating Links is Easy When You Know How

Author Mike Coats    Category

Many talk about links, backlinks, lists, SEO, features, optimizations, but they forget one great aspect: they need to keep it simple. It’s really professional to try and reach your targeted audience in various ways, but you need to focus on easy solutions that provide a great deal of success and more importantly, they are able to create the connection that you want with your targeted audience. Let’s take the idea of creating links. How important are they to your website?
Before jumping in to any answers, there is an aspect that you should really take into consideration when it comes to your website: the content that you want to offer needs to be so good, that the user will fall in love with the style of the writing. Many think that having a PR (public relations specialist) around is a waste of money, but he knows how to handle the copywriting in order for the outside target to be hooked. Before creating a link to something, you need to be certain that the end of the line has something great to offer to those users.
One of the most common ways to generate some really powerful links is through written materials like articles, stories or pamphlets. The idea here is simple: you can create content that is related to your field and outsource it to various environments that are interested in such materials, like blogs, social networks, ebooks, and so on. The idea here is to put the link to your website at the bottom of the article so that the reader can access it and read more about what he or she is interested in.
Another great way to advertise your website through links is by using the PPC system that Google AdWords provides. There are other tools that work great, but this is the most professional one and it works really well when it comes to complex strategies. This way of creating links is easy because the tool places the ads wherever you choose to and if you know where your audience “hangs out” you can easily point them in that direction.
Furthermore, there is the idea of images or videos that have backlinks to your website. Many people don’t take the idea of YouTube very serious, but a strong video can generate a lot of heat and if you point out the direction towards your website for more such details, you can easily increase the traffic that is driven to your website.
To conclude, using links in order to promote your website in the online environment can be a smart choice to do. SEO helps a lot when it comes to keywords and searches, but you can’t relate only on a single feature when the entire reputation of the firm is at stake. You need to play on multiple fronts in order to obtain the maximum amount of profit that you can from investing in an online marketing approach. Many have done it before you and their standards are pretty high. Can you match them?

Why Ethical Facebook Likes are the Only Way

Author Mike Coats   

From sport, to life to SEO there’s no point in playing anything but the long game and the same is true for Facebook and social media. There are no real shortcuts and generally anything that offers easy results not will catch you out in the long run.
One of the most blatantly easy ways to receive instant gratification from Facebook in recent times has been to purchase Facebook likes from an Internet ‘marketing’ company.  Yes, for around £20 per 1,000 likes you can be right up there with the big hitters. However, there are a number of issues with the process.
Facebook
Recently, Facebook made an announcement that it has been purchasing software to clear out these accounts – most of which are unutilised, created through malware or are bogus. According to estimates from the social media network, around 1% of all Likes on Facebook are fake likes.
Though one in every hundred Likes being false may not seem like a big deal - it is. Consider Coca Cola in this equation for example.  With over 50m Likes they hypothetically could have up to half a million fake likes. Now if you do the calculations based on the price of Likes above - around £20 for 1,000 you see the size of the market. Now add to this the fact that there are most likely billions of Likes on Facebook and you get an idea of the size of the industry. Throw Twitter Fake Followers into the mix and you may find it hard to comprehend its size.
Imperative for Business
Fake Likes are in a lot of ways merely vanity. Having thousands of followers comprised of fake accounts and malware based followers misses the point of Facebook marketing in a lot of ways. Sure it may affect the Edge Rank algorithm to an extent, but as a long game it’s damned and for both Facebook and businesses it’s an imperative that it is. Fake Facebook likes don’t add to engagement and essentially it’s akin to giving the world’s greatest speech to a room full of zombies – worthless. Creating content to share with thousands of fake accounts doesn’t work or frankly make any sense, whether you’re a Sheffield IT support company or a fashion retailer from Mumbai.
Why Such a Move
However, just so you know Facebook isn’t ridding the site of fake Likes simply for reasons of a moral crusade. As you are most likely well aware, Facebook’s share prices have tumbled and some expect them to fall well below $15 a share. This fall has been partially been down to scepticism of its worth.
Consider the implications for Facebook as a business if it let the cancer of fake Likes take hold further. Marketers who are currently a little dubious of the value of Likes would end up really falling out of love with the social media site and be far less willing to plough time and money into it in a battle for Likes.
Such a trial of confidence is not what Mark Zuckerberg et al need now and would result in a further share tumble as advertising revenue is hit, aside share prices. For Facebook as well as marketers and businesses – ethical Facebook Likes are the only way.

Spreading The Word On Facebook: 5 Ways To Improve The Reach Of Your Posts

Author Mike Coats   

If you are an online business attempting to make a splash on Facebook and are spending hours each week crafting daily posts to reach your audience, we have bad news for you: Only about 1 in 6 people will see what you post. This is pretty disheartening isn’t it? In other words, the majority of people that ‘like’ your business page will not see what you post as it will not come up on their live feeds.

Edgerank
It’s not just search engines that use algorithms you know! Edgerank is Facebook’s algorithm which is used to determine the content that deserves to be placed on top of the pile. The value of your content is considered according to:

Ÿ  Affinity: The number of times a fan has ‘engaged’ with your page’s content in the past. This figure will include page visits.
Ÿ  Popularity: The kind of engagement you receive. Posts that receive large amounts of likes or comments will rank high in this section.
Ÿ  Decay: Eventually, your post will get old and have less engagement which means it starts to decay. This makes it less relevant and less likely to appear in the live news feed of a Facebook user. The really bad news is that you normally get about 3 hours before your post starts to decay!

Maximising The Reach Of Your Facebook Page Posts
Establishing the reach of your brand on Facebook is an essential factor in any successful online marketing strategy. If you’re fed up with spending hours on posts only to find that a small fraction of people are actually reading, follow the tips below.

Promoted Posts
This is the tip you’re least likely to use since it involves actually paying for something! In a nutshell, you pay Facebook to promote recent posts and give your brand a greater level of exposure. Although the percentage of fans that receive your organic content will rise, there is no indication as to the level of that increase.

Use your page’s sharing tool to promote any post type you want including videos, offers, status updates and photos. Fans of your page will see these promoted posts as will friends of people who interact with your post. Your posts will suddenly have a shelf life of around 3 days. However, you need to have at least 400 fans to avail of this offer.

Community Page
This involves finding the right target audience for your marketing campaign. What you ideally want is a community who are all on the same page in terms of what they expect from your brand. Giveaways are an excellent way to attract attention but the prize must be something related to your industry or brand. Instead of getting as many ‘likes’ as possible, a community page can help you get ‘liked’ by individuals who have a genuine interest in your brand, are more likely to engage and will hopefully become customers one day.

Timing Is Everything
You should be aware of the time zones the majority of your fans live in. This will of course vary depending on whether you are targeting North America, Europe or Asia. When in doubt, post at various times of the day and analyse the posts that received the highest level of engagement. You should also investigate the performance of your local rivals to see when they get their best results. As we’ve already mentioned, the shelf life of your posts is short: Post when most fans are in bed and they won’t get to see it in the morning.

Be Succinct
Various studies have shown that lengthy Facebook posts are less likely to be read. Although Facebook is not quite as strict as Twitter when it comes to brevity, you need posts that are quick and easy to digest so users can easily engage with comments and perhaps start a debate. Keep up to date with current industry trends and events as these are convenient posts to start discussion with.

Don’t Be Content With Low Quality Content!
It should be obvious that posts need to be well thought out and not fluff-riddled nonsense. You should also try and mix things up by adding videos and photos occasionally. According to industry experts, photos are by far the most engaging type of content to post on Facebook. Apps such as trivia quizzes and puzzles are also excellent methods of encouraging engagement.

If you wish to increase the number of people viewing your posts on Facebook you must find ways to improve fan engagement. It seems clear that Facebook’s algorithms reward brands that actively try to reach out to fans by encouraging discussion and participation. This is far better than using your Facebook page as nothing more than an advertising vehicle. If all else fails, you can avail of promoted posts but if you have a clearly defined Facebook content strategy, you shouldn’t need to pay money in order to be visible to users.
