How to get 5 star Facebook reviews

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

How to get 5 star Facebook reviews. Just ask your customers. IF you’re doing your job right they will be more than happy to give you a review. Be proactive with your online presence. If you have 50 great authentic reviews from your clients getting one from a not so friendly person doesn’t affect your review average. Also having straight 100% good reviews doesn’t seem realistic these days any way. So don’t get mad and emotional. Try to rectify the situation with the client as best as you can and go on servicing the great clients you have.

 

If you need help with your Facebook give us a call!!!

How to get the most out of Linked with Conversation Starters

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
Are you getting the most out of your social media? If not why !?!?!? Here are some great tips to start with. You can do all the reading you want but the most important thing is DO IT!
 

Conversation Starters on LinkedIn

Conversations are the cornerstone of business relationships, but finding a great opener isn’t always easy. The new LinkedIn messaging feature can help!

Now available in the LinkedIn mobile app (and coming to desktop soon*), LinkedIn offers personalized conversation ice breakers pulled from the profile data from you and your connections. These conversation starters can help you spend less time thinking of what to say and more time having meaningful dialogue.

Types of conversation starters include:

  • Updates on professional activities, so you can congratulate connections on starting a new job, a work anniversary or when they’ve published an article on LinkedIn.
  • Shared experiences, so you can build rapport over previous employers, educational backgrounds or mutual group memberships.
  • Shared connections to help you connect over contacts you have in common.

How it works: Within the LinkedIn app, locate the messaging option in the menu, then select the pencil and paper icon to start a new message. Next, enter or select the name of the contact with whom you’d like to connect. Tap the lightbulb icon to see a list of personalized conversation starters and select your favorite.

Compose the rest of your message using a personal and conversational tone. And make sure to give them a reason to reply by asking for their advice or opinion.

LinkedIn conversation starters are an innovative way to help you break the ice, rekindle professional relationships, and make the most of your LinkedIn experience.

It’s no how fast technology is advancing for businesses. As a business owner your responsibility is to understand it or at least understand it enough to hire someone who can take care of it.

5 Things to Know about Sarahah

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The Hot New Anonymous Messaging App

Sarahah is currently leading the App Store charts in a handful of counties. But you might be wondering, what exactly is this app and how did it break into the coveted Top 10 list? Sarahah is a new anonymous messaging app from Saudi Arabia and this is everything you need to know about it.

1. What Does Sarahah Mean?

In Arabic, Sarahah means candor and honesty.

2. How Does It Work?

sarahah 2

Sarahah is unlike other anonymous messaging apps from the past. With Sarahah, a user creates an account, generates a link and shares it on their social media. On this page, anyone can leave an anonymous comment for the user.

The app supports privacy features as well. By default, you don’t appear in search and you can’t receive messages from non registered users.

3. Who Is Using It?

Sarahah was designed to be used in a workspace environment as an anonymous way to get a bit of constructive criticism. The website’s tag line reads “Get honest feedback from your coworkers and friends”. And there is a dedicated section on the site about how Sarahah can be helpful at work.

But Sarahah is topping the download charts because of teenagers who are currently on summer vacation. Teenagers are putting up links on their Snapchats to get the word out.

4. How Is It Different from Other Anonymous Apps?

Sarahah is unique in a couple of ways. Previous anonymous apps like Yik Yak were more of social networks. Someone could post something anonymously and anyone (either close by or online) could read the post. This is why Yik Yak was ultimately used for bullying and negative remarks.

But in Sarahah, the user is actually soliciting feedback by signing up for an account and creating the link. They’re also then deciding where to share the link so that only specific people can have access to it. The combination of these two features has so far kept the interactions as mostly positive.

New York Magazine talked to teenagers using the app and the response was mostly positive. Sam, a high-school student from North Carolina said: “Honestly, I’ve only gotten good messages.”

But of course, as this is an anonymous, hateful comments are bound to happen.

5. Will It Suffer the Same Fate as Others?

Most of the anonymous messaging apps we’ve seen so far are dead. Either because the company couldn’t survive or they were inundated in law suits.

It’s possible that Sarahah will go out the same way. Or maybe because how it works, the negativity will be kept to a minimum.

Succumbing to Google’s SEO?

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Are You Marketing or Succumbing to Google?

I find this article funny. It’s shows an industry mindset that refuses to let go despite the fact they know they are engulfed by the age of technology and online everything. The person that wrote this article uses Google for everything in their personal like but still resists those everyday implications when it comes to the fading industry they live in.

 

If your organization hosts a website, you probably already know the importance of seeding key search terms on your site. Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, is the method used to improve a website’s position on the results page of a search engine. The more relevant your site to the search term, the better positioning you’ll get in organic search results. The challenge is to stay true to your brand while leveraging those keyword terms.

Recently, a client rejected some copy I’d written for a new piece of fulfillment content because it did not reflect their brand voice. When I pointed out that it closely mimicked something I had found deep in their website, the reply was something like “Oh that was just for SEO. We would never actually talk about our brand that way.”

SEO Tags

With the bulk of leads being driven by digital channels, keywords have become the backbone of every digital marketing initiative.

  • H1 tags (the header words you use to title your content) and meta descriptions (the copy that appears underneath the search result headline) should absolutely reflect key words. But if you’ve ever conducted search and read the meta descriptions they often appear to simply have the search word “inserted” into the middle of the sentence, and as a result, the sentence makes very little sense.
  • Permalinks (the name of each URL page in your website) need to leverage keywords. For example, if your business is Joe’s Plumbing and consumers regularly search for the term “rusty pipes,” it would be optimal for you to have a page with a permalink such as http://www.joesplumbing.com/rusty-pipes.
  • Keyword density is the number of times a keyword appears on your website, but many websites go overboard trying to “please” Google search engines. FYI, Google will also consider the use of synonymous keywords, so you don’t need to bog every page down with the word “rusty pipes” in order to boost your rankings.

 

Backlinks

Clearly it’s not possible to have every keyword embedded multiple times on your website. And, it’s a lot of work to have duplicate Web pages tweaked to ensure the permalink replicates the keyword term and they are keyword-dense.

In our fight to get our brand to the top of the organic results, are we compromising our brand values and brand voice? Are we simply crafting content so we can ensure Google knows we’re constantly updating our pages to optimize search engine results? Are we busy building relationships with bloggers and news outlets in order to ensure we optimize the number of backlinks?

Somehow it all feels like we’ve lost control of our brand and our marketing integrity as we bow to the Google algorithm gods.
