Outreach is a balancing act between delivering quality pitches and maximizing your time. High caliber link builders send out a lot of emails and are always looking for ways to speed up the process. Here are a few techniques to help you save time during your next link building campaign.
I know what you are thinking, “Ben how did you get to talk with Jonathon Colman about Agile Marketing? Are you twins separated at birth, did you bribe or black mail him?”
Well none of those are true, simply Jonathon is a great marketer and person who is hard not to hear about and gravitate to in our industry. I’ve learned a lot from him through Twitter and would definitlely suggest following him on Twitter and Slide Share. Well I won’t hold you up any further from hearing what Jonathon Colman had to say, Enjoy!
Today a lot of marketers are struggling to find ways to stay on top of social media marketing. Being able to connect with those who are talking about your brand or sharing your content can be extremely powerful, but also extremely time consuming. Most of us don’t have time to monitor Twitter, but wouldn’t it be great to be able to quickly answer questions like:
Who is sharing my content?
What content is being shared?
What does my sharing timeline look like?
Well today I’m going to be showing you how to answer all of these questions in minutes with Topsy a free instant social search tool.
One of the perks to working in online marketing is brushing shoulders with great people like Anthony Pensabene who is a twitter networker, marketing strategist, and content muser. In this interview you’ll get to see the refreshingly witty writing style and spunk of Anthony, enjoy.
I had the pleasure of meeting John at the SEER Interactive Moz Event. He is passionate about photography, hacking excel, and of course SEO as a consultant in NYC for Distilled. He is a great SEO with some great advice so without further adieu I give you John Doherty.
The other day I was getting ready to write a blog post and got it started in Google Docs. While I was writing in Google Docs I stumbled upon several tools that they provide that have helped me to complete more quality blog posts in less time. So I figured I’d share what I’ve found.
Most online marketers have a few blogs that they follow to keep a pulse on whats happening in the industry and to inspire improvement. Over the last few months Jason Acidre’s blog has constantly put out great content that has made me a better SEO. He ails from the Philippines but does SEO work for clients from the US to the UK all the way down under to Australia. Jason is a smart SEO with a lot of hustle, and glad he could share some of his tips.
I’ve been reading a great book called “Call To Action” that SEER Interactive encourages all its clients to read, so i made sure to pick one up and start reading it.
One of the biggest “aha” moments I’ve had so far while reading this book is when they discuss how a company should emphasize a products “Uses” and instead of trying to explain all of it’s “Features”. This is such a small distinction but as I started thinking about some of my favorite presentations I realized that this is exactly what they did. They focused on a few features and then emphasize on all the different uses of those features, and the big impact that those will have in the person’s life.
I am writing this post as I am in the middle of unpacking from my move out to Philadelphia to work for one of the top SEM agencies in the country, SEER Interactive. It is still a bit surreal and I find myself reflecting back to see how I got to this point only after graduating couple of years ago from BYU-Idaho and started a job in a completing different field.
I have learned a lot on what it takes to discover and go after my dream job and I’d like to share to help those who are still looking.
