Taking into account both how fast these numbers are expected to grow and how enormous social media user bases have already become, it would be foolish not to start using these platforms for marketing as soon as possible.

However, no matter how beneficial social media can be for a business, it’s not all daisies and roses and beautiful pictures on Instagram. Developing marketing strategies for your social campaigns takes a lot of work, thorough market analysis, and social data mining.

Posted by Joe Chilson on 12 April 2019 10:00 AM

I recently finished moving into a new apartment. It was the culmination of a two-month process which was stressful, complicated, and time-consuming. In the end, it was worth it. I’m in a nicer apartment now, in a better neighborhood. Nobody moves because it’s fun or easy. They move because they know they need to.

eCommerce platforms work exactly the same way. If you’re considering moving your store from one platform to another, you have a bumpy transition ahead of you, but the benefits you’ll get on your new platform will make it all worthwhile. I’ve overseen a ton of eCommerce platform migration projects. I want to help your migration go as smoothly as possible by pointing out the most common pitfalls in platform migration.

It’s likely that you have visited an eCommerce store in the past few months.

If we were to ask you to describe how it looked, could you? Probably not...

But if we asked you how it made you feel, it’s likely you could tell us if you trusted the site, if it looked visually appealing, whether or not it worked well on your mobile device, or if it was easy to navigate.

In this article, we are going to take a look at some of the basic building blocks that make an eCommerce store successful. We are going to look at the importance of trust, ease of navigation, visual appeal, and using the site on your mobile device.

How Trade Show Marketing Can Help Improve Your SEO Results
Posted by Leslie Pierce on 08 April 2019 10:00 AM

At one time, search engine optimization (SEO) was all about playing to an algorithm. With tiny scraps of information from Google, marketers crafted broad-spanning but formulaic SEO strategies, hoping their sites would rank higher.

The world’s biggest search engine has evolved greatly since the days of simply appeasing an algorithm. While that’s still important, the Google of today is mostly concerned with encouraging a better user experience. That means the engine now favors websites that feature valuable content (not click-bait), mobile friendliness, fast load times and other user-pleasing features.

This is good news for quality-centric marketing teams, especially with regard to trade shows and event marketing.

Posted by Zara Walker on 04 April 2019 10:00 AM

A great website is the perfect calling card for most businesses. Sometimes you have a site that serves purely as a digital business card. Sometimes it’s to generate leads. Of course, for eCommerce businesses, sometimes the site is your actual storefront.

At any rate, you usually start with a great design. A logo here, a carousel banner there, and then some concerted effort in writing the content. Once your site is ready, you might even decide to invest time and effort in drumming up traffic to your website.

Why Social Media and SEO Are Becoming More and More Linked
Posted by Danish Wadhwa on 02 April 2019 10:00 AM

Most online business owners think that social media and SEO are two separate entities and have their own distinct goals.

That’s not true: social media and SEO are linked to each other for providing relevant and useful content to the audience. Both social media and SEO complement each other and help enhance the overall online marketing efforts.

There are more than 2.77 billion social media users in the world. The uninitiated may think that social media is only useful for getting in touch with people. However, if used wisely, it is one of the most powerful tools for growing your business online. Although social media does not directly contribute to search engine optimization (SEO), the links you share help increase exposure to your brand, which in turn increases your traffic, sales, and revenue.

Furthermore, a website’s position on search engine search results is correlated with the number of social media signals it possesses. If you analyze the sites on the top positions in Google and other search engines, you will find that most of them have strong social signals. Hence, any good online marketing strategy should have a solid SEO and social media marketing plan working together to get the best results.

Let’s take a look at how social media and SEO are linked and how you can use the former to increase the latter for your website.
