The Effects of Social Network Quality on Your Search Engine Marketing Campaign

Search engine marketing is more than just writing a high quality, keyword-specific article and great reception from different link builds. It also depends on the social network you are using.

Casual Vs. Business

Casual or consumer-oriented social networks such as Facebook and Twitter are useful for measuring your target audience’s reception to your products and services. Registering the company page as the workplace of your employees will not be enough to improve your search engine marketing standing. You will need them to register themselves in a business social network.

A business social network, such as LinkedIn, allows the boosting of brand and business integrity because of employee credentials. If the employees upload their official professional information, including educational attainment, years of experience, specialization and others, search engines can recognize the brand easily.

Reaching New Targets

Facebook is a marketplace of ideas, but a business-oriented social media network focuses on connecting individual freelancers and professionals with businesses and projects that may need their skills. Casual social networks help expand the existing market, but business-oriented social networks help in reaching new company targets by forging relationships, which also help improve the search engine standing of existing businesses, especially if mentioned on an official company publishing.

Adding Personality to Your Blogs

Company blogs can be very interesting especially if you update your investors, consumers and potential patrons about your new product line, the care and handling you do with your products and services, and addressing consumer problems. But these can sound monotonous and ‘too formal’ especially if they read like general-document material. However, if you add personalities to your blogs, you could fare well with your marketing strategies definitely.

Have a recognizable employee fill the position of your blog author. It could be written by him or her, or you could have someone else ‘ghost write’ for your blogger. The employee must be suitable to talk about the topic. For example, for design elements in your new line of laptop accessories, the designer must talk about the thought process of the designs.

This adds credibility to your blog author and also puts him or her in the position indicated. But his or her position is limited, which is why you will need to use other employees who are department heads or supervisors of the task that you need to discuss. You could build their authority if the product or service has positive feedback from your consumers.

With positive results, you could expand the topics of your blog authors from talking about different aspects of your business, to raising their opinion about the troubles people find with their product responsibilities. This makes for a colourful and more trustworthy approach to marketing your products.

Injury Compensation Claims: Cutting the Story Short

I learned the difficult way once when I made an injury compensation claim that you should only speak when you are spoken to and when what you are about to say holds value. I gave my claims expert from quite a hard time, but she pulled through and helped control the damages caused by my unnecessary details.

I knew what exactly happened during my motorcycle accident with an 18-wheeler truck. I remember each detail and I told this story when I made the police report. The police then dismissed my case as only a ‘slightly grazed’ accident that holds no major injury.

Unfortunately, in the next few days, I felt a sharp pain in my neck and felt disoriented. My medical professional confirmed my whiplash suspicions and that was when I called the claims expert from the claims management company above.

She said that I should not have told too many details to the police because other details were left out. At that time, I just wanted to skip from paying the paint damages on the 18-wheeler truck, but I should have known better that I was severely injured. The claims expert found it difficult to reverse the police report’s statement, but eventually she pushed through and we approached the 18-wheeler driver’s company, who gladly paid me compensation around £8000.

Well, sometimes, it helps to keep our mouths shut when needed and not to dismiss some things as simple because we might be skipping something important.

Why Content is the Most Important Element of Web Marketing

The reason you are probably reading this post is because a search engine recommended it to you as a substantial content related to your search parameters. If this post provides you important information, then it is good content. Search engines and reader attitudes online will always prioritize content and internet marketers should always take note.

According to Forbes, high quality web content will be in demand in 2014 as internet users favour high definition videos, substantial research on unique and interesting facts and better content storage for social networks. As social networks are obviously to stay synonymous with habitual internet usage, content can spread easier, but only if it is of high quality.

A website without content is meaningless because most internet users search for information, news and tips regarding different topics. If you only have endorsement texts and advertising on your website, it will be shunned even if you have great web design. However, if your advertising videos or media is controversial or humorous, it can gain a great audience.

Images will dominate the genre of content posted in the internet. Most internet users understand complicated information better using infographics, which mix up symbolisms with facts in a comprehensive flowchart that has fluidity in delivering its message. Photo-oriented social media websites had enabled picture-blogging rather than text-style blogs. These blogs had gained enormous fame in the last half-decade and may soon dominate the social network industry.

Content will always dominate the internet and the demand for high quality content is important for business blogs. Do not be too afraid to invest in content-improving ventures as they may well be worth the trouble.

The Kinds of Images You Need for a Good Marketing Website

Pictures could say more than words and adjectives are no match for a very good photograph, drawing or artwork in a website. You will want to post the best-resolution photos you have about your travel, the product or service you are selling, or the property you want to advertise. However, a high-resolution photo is never always a good idea for internet marketing. Images can be efficient for marketing through the following.

1. Faster Loading
A hi-res photo looks beautiful and detailed indeed, but if the photograph takes time to load on a fast connection, your visitor might shun the photograph. It would be better to use a low-res preview thumbnail that loads fast for people who do not mind looking at details. It also helps to pique the interests of people curious enough to see detail.

2. Color
Be sure to see if your images have the right type of colour when uploaded. Some website servers could mix and match the image you upload as packets may be going the wrong way. A re-upload, or a fix in the image formats may do wonders for troubles such as these.

3. Outsource
Most readers find photos more memorable if they recognize the photographer who shot the photograph or the artist who made the artwork. The signature popularity could be a horse for your website to ride on if you play it carefully. Inquire about outsourcing with well-known artists and photographers for marketing photos in your website.

Improving Your Internet Marketing Brand Signals

In real life, brand signals are your products or services’ affiliation with things that might not directly relate to your company. For example, a certain color combination could be an identifier for a company’s logo. In Internet marketing, brand signals work quite differently.

1. Social Media
A company’s social media is a good barometer of a brand’s fame in the real world. Search engines make use of social media to collect information about the frequency of consumer visits, consumer posts, shares, information that had gone viral and other details. Employees who register the company profile as their workplace in their personal social media accounts also helps develop online brand signals.

2. High Quality Media
High quality media, both online and offline, contribute to brand signals because consumers will recognize such content and copies, if uploaded by other users, could spring up in some video streaming websites. Related content could also show the affiliation of your media, which helps other users looking for other forms of media to find your company and raise your integrity.

3. Consumer Reviews and Contact
In social media, consumers could tag your company for certain things, such as suggestions, complaints or comments. The more people tag you using your actual commercial profile link, the more social media administrators recognize your company’s significance. The more reviews people link to your company profile, the better your brand signal online develops as well.

The Quality of Writing Needed for Internet Marketing

Internet marketing is the most affordable form of marketing for many small businesses, but quality still gains the biggest audience in the Internet. Audiences clamour for information that would be useful for them from a company or from an expert’s blog. If you want to use writing for your Internet marketing, here are a few things to remember.

1. Be Factual
The sign of a good copywrite or a blog entry is the presence of great and reliable sources. Once your article contains reliable sources, people could also consider you as a reliable source. Remember, the number and quality of links determine search engine recognition to your webpage or website.

2. Writing Style
Don’t be too stringent when it comes to grammar. As long as audiences understand your grammar and your message effectively without typographical error or glaring punctuation mistakes, you are in the proper way of writing. This is the first sign that your content is of high quality as well.

3. Share Your Thoughts
A blog is about personal sharing of views and the basis for such views through your sources. A company blog focuses on updating your customers about the latest stages in development and surprises you have for them. Be honest, but not to the point that you disdain formality in the language you use when writing.

4. Organised
Do not allow your writing to reflect scattered statements. Use each paragraph to split your ideas. Your first paragraph should always mention about a certain problem or general topic that the article will have and then this must be resolved by the last paragraph.

Great Ways to Improve Your Social Media Marketing Strategy

Social media is the most affordable way businesses could market and advertise their products. With people having the choice to view which media from companies and personalities would they want to see, businesses could use this to their advantage. But they have to know what their target market want to see precisely.

1. Your Target Market
Identifying your target market, like in all advertisement strategies, is highly important to ensure your media about products and services relate to them. Your media includes the language, the manner the updates for your social media is written, the timing of your updates and so on.

2. Short But Sweet
Social media users do not like seeing updates 250 words long. A 20-50 word update will do. Making your update short and sweet (and if you throw in a call to action, people will likely increase your exposure engagement) is the key to making a good update. If you have to put up an article, link the article instead with a 20-50 summary of what the link/article is all about.

3. Timing
If you’ve fulfilled step one, the timing your audience reads your updates depends on who they are. If you target the working audience, you could post updates before people go to work, when people are during their lunch breaks and when they finally get off from work. Elderly people may unlikely view your updates, not unless they use social media most of the time. For mothers, a round-the-clock update can probably interest them.

4. Frequency
People instantly unfollow pages and personalities in social media that post too frequently. People also want to view the updates from their other subscriptions and flooding them could result to a low market reception and possible banning from the social media website itself.

PPI Claims Processing: Financial Conduct Authority May Fine 12 Companies

The Financial Conduct Authority might fine 12 out of the 18 banks and financial institutions’ PPI complaint centres for ineffective PPI claims processing. Only six financial companies were cooperative and making great progress in reducing consumer PPI claims.

The 12 financial companies were not named and they ranged from high street building societies, credit providers and personal loan companies. These companies have dealt with more than 1 million PPI complaints and have paid out more than £1.1 billion for the consumer’s compensation package.

PPI is an insurance product designed to repay loans and mortgages in case of accidents and sicknesses. It is essential that consumers make use of a PPI claim calculator to know the specific amount of compensation they could get.

The FOS’ increased number of complaints by 26% had the FCA tackle the investigation with existing firms. The FOS estimated that they received a total of 266,388 PPI complaints in the first two quarters of 2013. Chief Ombudsman Natalie Ceeney said that the Financial Ombudsman is disappointed that banks and financial companies are still dragging their feet to assess the situation.

The twelve companies could be submitted for fining or for adjustment to improve PPI complaints handling.

If you find any difficulty in making your claim, you could choose to work with PPI claims management companies such as PPICalculatorCo for legal counselling and help.

The SEO and Branding Act: Finding the Right Balance

Many businesses rely on search engine optimization techniques to gain an edge against their local market competitors. While this is an effective strategy, it also has a few disadvantages. Internet marketing is not always about technicalities with search engines and the usage of tags. Here are a few things you should know to improve your Internet campaign.

1. Long and Short Term
Internet marketing campaigns could focus on a long or short term Internet presence. The risk of over-optimization is that your website and pages might seem spammy to many visitors. While the first few visitors you have might want to give your company a shot, this does not guarantee a long term Internet presence. A brand-oriented Internet marketing strategy, however, can.

2. Content
It is possible that you could boost a website’s search engine ranking by writing lacking quality of content. However, leading search engine Google’s latest update looks at content and social reception. It is highly important that you have high quality content in your webpages and your website itself.

3. Audience Reception
Any company website gets visitors and when visitors find interest in your website, they will share it to friends on social media. While you could also have the same probability just by using powerful SEO techniques and ensuring the quality of results you give to consumers, developing your brand and ensuring the trust of your consumers is a better option.
