Facebook Live Video Number 1: The Impending Eruption!

Tue, 26 Sep 2017 09:07:21 +0000

What do you do when you get a couple dozen breathless emails from people planning a vacation to the place you live, folks who need to make a decision fast as to whether they should cancel their vacation or not, because there’s a volcano that’s about to erupt there…..? Well, what I did was my […]

eQuake Earthquake App Review

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 15:31:17 +0000

Sept. 2017, Bali, Indonesia: Mt. Agung Eruption So I’m sitting within 50 miles (~80 kilometers) of Mount Agung, a volcano that’s about to erupt, probably, on the island of Bali, Indonesia in the Indian Ocean. How’s your day going? They’ve evacuated thousands of people living within a radius of roughly 6 miles (10 km) of […]

Facebook Live: Why You Need To Use It

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 05:45:02 +0000

Way back in March of 2016 Facebook announced that its algorithm would be favoring live video content even more than it does regular native video in News Feed. Remember that Facebook didn’t arbitrarily decide to do this: naturally it’s a response to user consumption patterns. When a company tells you not only what’s working best […]

How Email Marketing Works

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 13:07:26 +0000

I received an email from a Digital Media Minute reader in response to a recent post on Internet marketing newsletters I recommend subscribing to, where I listed nine newsletters that have helped me a lot over the years. The reader complained that I’d pointed to these examples of great newsletters without really explaining how email […]

How I’ll Fight The Panda Once More

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 14:13:16 +0000

I bought Digital Media Minute back in late 2008 from a web developer. He’d had added content virtually every day–sometimes multiple posts per day–since he started the site in 2003. When I bought DMM it had over 3000 posts on it, almost all of which were indexed in Google. At the time the traffic was […]

The Robots Aren’t Coming For Your Job–Get Back To Work!

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 14:54:12 +0000

What I like is something that surprises me. If it goes against a generally accepted principal, something that gets repeated so often that we stop questioning it, even better. Robots taking jobs is a perfect example. In this article from Wired magazine by James Surowiecki (remember ‘Wisdom of Crowds‘?) explains why, while robots have started […]

New WordPress plugins and themes are released constantly. As I was looking at different layout ideas for a new site I realized I was using a time-saving tool some people might not know about. To tell me quickly what WordPress theme and WordPress plugins a site is using I use Themestats. Even before you look […]

A Future For Viral Sites?

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 14:19:23 +0000

Are Viral Sites Dead? So I confess, I’ve been thinking about creating a viral website. OK I said it. I mean of course a site that depends on organic sharing of its content from readers on social media sites like Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, Reddit, etc., rather than focusing on SEO traffic or paid traffic. […]

Could Themed Newsletters Raise Your Email Open Rate?

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 07:59:26 +0000

If your website has a subscriber list–I assume you have a list!–there are two potential problems you’ll always be trying to sidestep, and themed newsletters might help you do so. One is the challenge of keeping your content fresh and interesting enough to get your emails opened and hopefully engaged-with. The other is simply coming […]

Google Search Results–What’s The Trick To Getting In? I recently got a letter from a reader, saying in part: …..it seems that I must not have set my site up quite correctly, as my post is still not coming up in any Google search results. I’ve tried everything I can think of (alt text for […]

YouTube Live And Facebook Live: Making The Jump To Video

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 12:44:13 +0000

I was pondering this preference Facebook is giving to video, especially live video, in terms of organic distribution. Engagement with video content is relatively high vs other types of posts so you’re rewarded for helping Facebook keep its users/your audience engaged. It’s no secret that YouTube also is favoring live video in the search algo. […]

Artificial Intelligence Comes To Marketing

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 13:39:42 +0000

The future arrived faster than we—or at least I—thought it would. Check out Adgorithm’s Artificial Intelligence named Albert, billed as ‘the first Artificial Intelligence marketing platform for the enterprise’. At first I though that the main advantage it gives you is a (much) faster way to optimize your paid campaigns. But it also addresses targeting […]

Lastpass Review (Just Get It)

Sat, 09 Sep 2017 13:20:29 +0000

Along with rants about Internet marketing I try to regularly include pointer posts to tools and utilities that have made my life easier, if not changed it entirely. Today’s humble pointer falls closer to ‘life changer’ than it does ‘makes life easier’ and actually I’m not kidding about that. Earlier today I was looking at […]

Facebook And Native Ads–A Hidden Edge That Could Have Make You Rich

Fri, 08 Sep 2017 14:38:24 +0000

I was drawn into this little series of tweets from Chris Mims, saying that having been a creator of ‘hot takes’, he knew that the trick–or one trick at least–was to appeal to the reader’s prejudices. Having done quite a bit of affiliate marketing using paid traffic in my day, I’m sensitized to listen to […]

Why Understanding Ad Targeting Is All The Edge You Need

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 14:28:27 +0000

From my talks with clients I’ve concluded that there’s a huge gap between what ordinary people (including business owners) assume about online marketing generally (and paid CPC/CPM specifically), and the improved methods new marketing technology offers to promote whatever you, a client, or even a political candidate needs to get in front of people. Not […]

The Fastest Way To Become A Good–Or Even Great–Marketer

Wed, 06 Sep 2017 14:30:42 +0000

Have you ever run affiliate marketing campaigns using paid traffic? I think it’s best way to become a better marketer in the shortest possible time. Why do I say that? Isn’t the best way to just buy the right courses and study for months while you learn and take notes? Well, no. Just the opposite […]

Have You Ever Seen The Rain? Check Wind, Clouds, Rain And Much More With Windy.com

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 13:22:08 +0000

My vote for the prettiest website I’ve seen in a long time goes to Windy.com. I went in looking for real-time info about Hurricane Irma, coming into the Caribbean as I’m writing this as a category 5 hurricane. I found a site that offers real time information on wind, cloud cover, temperature, precipitation, ocean wave […]

Increase Instagram Engagement–This Tool Could Change Everything For You

Mon, 04 Sep 2017 13:29:57 +0000

For a recent e-commerce client (selling a food product) we found that our best engagement by far was from Instagram. Considering the product is premium pickle juice meant to be used in mixed drinks especially, we weren’t surprised. My client had a ton of excellent images of attractive people enjoying all kinds of adult beverages, […]

How To Live In Bali As A Digital Nomad

Sat, 02 Sep 2017 14:55:24 +0000

In 2005 I bought a little place in Bali, Indonesia. In that time I’ve seen profound changes here, most of them good in my opinion. Bali sits in a sweet spot between exotic and familiar, inexpensive but comfortable. Why would I be mentioning this bit of personal info and talking about how to live in […]

I want to point you to two SEO tools I’ve been using for a long time now, tools that work together to let me do two major SEO tasks very, very quickly: finding related keywords and get keyword volumes/CPC amounts. Even better, they are free. Sometimes a lean tool with fewer features is best, and […]

Editing Google Analytics User Access–When It’s Not Your Website

Wed, 30 Aug 2017 08:45:36 +0000

A friend of mine was considering buying a website and asked my opinion on it. After checking to see that the site did in fact have Google Analytics installed (just click your right mouse button and look for ‘view page source’), I told him to ask the seller to add me to their Google Analytics […]
