Marketing Online – Changes Day By Day – A Dynamic Industry

Posted on Posted in internet, seo, website

Marketing online is becoming or already is the most dynamic marketing industry in existence. For example, how often is a new ABC, CBS, NBC, or FOX going to come along on television? Rarely, but in the online world we have seen king of the throne change quite a few a times. It is a never ending game of musical chairs. To see an example of how quick top 100 rankings change on the Internet check Alexa to see how traffic trends continuously change.

Keeping our clients listed at at least 30% of the top websites in the United States is a priority for us. Currently we keep our main clients ranked in 50% of the top 10 websites in the country. Is this priceless? Does your website sell? If it does we can get you all the right traffic. We are even working to help our clients increase their conversions and sales using a great new tool called Google Analytics. We are mastering the features of the program to apply are findings to our clients sites to deliver maximum results.

We are doing well marketing our clients, but getting better every month. As a result we decided to cap the number of clients we are taking in a marketplace. Two lucky people per a marketplace. Because after all there are only 10-20 results people look at the major sites and search engines. We are also helping our clients become the most informative people in their industry hosting and maintaining their blogs. This is important because people tend to feel more comfortable purchasing from the people that inform them the most about their services.

Online Marketing will never stop evolving and for all we know and neither will, search engines may not exist in five years. That is why it is critical to choose an Online Marketing Agency dedicated to creating you an Online Presence beyond the search engines. Today's market is still driven by Word-of-Mouth along with other forms of marketing. This means that Joe's brother may tell him about what he found on the Internet. Or Jane may tell Susie about a great blog she read on rejuvenating her smile with porcelain veneers on her dentist's blog.

Our client's still see results surfacing from marketing they were doing 1 month ago. How is this so? Well how many domain names do you have written on a piece of paper on your desk? How many sites have you added to your favorites (bookmarks) intending to do business with them one day? Traditional SEO is over, yes I said it done / dead, and depending on strictly SEO is a facade. Online Marketing is the key and SEO is just one of the pieces of this puzzle.

We practice what we preach, are business has quickly evolved over the past 9 months to deliver the results our clients should expect. This is a multi prong approach and not suitable for every client.

How many successful marketing campaigns depend on one medium …

If You're Serious About Being Healthy – Get In Front Of A Computer

Posted on Posted in internet, technology

Marketing companies are constantly inventing new and expensive fads to help us exercise, lose weight and get healthy. But if we're really going to get results, it's probably just best to do more and more of the things we already enjoy. Frankly there are not any shortcuts to good health and fitness, the only real way to be healthy is through a good diet and good exercise.

To get results, we need to commit to a regular schedule, ideally we should be doing something every day if possible. But whatever our personal circumstances, I do not think there's a single one of us that does not find that difficult with so many demands on our time.
Of all the choices of exercise available, yoga is perhaps the most versatile, allowing us to exercise almost anywhere, without the need for any special equipment – we do not really even need a mat.

This means that we can exercise anytime morning to night, wherever we feel comfortable, at home, at work or in our hotel room when we travel.

For most of us, the limitation of yoga, is also one of its most important aspects. To practice properly, we have to know the postures, and the correct sequence to do them. But now we can all get our own private professional yoga instruction.

Ancient practices, modern technology

The latest technology now allows us to follow video based yoga instruction, without having to buy the videos or DVDs. Instead we can access a full library of videos online at the click of a mouse. Our high-speed computers can stream the videos over the internet to our homes or wherever else we want to practice.

Convenience and quality – all the better for us

Having access to a range of different yoga routines and instructors gives us the benefits of going to class, without the hassle or its limits. Online yoga classes give us:

  • Yoga instruction on demand so we can practice yoga according to our own schedules. Fit a session in before work, at lunch or in the evening – there's no need to check your yoga center's class schedules.
  • Yoga where you are No need to fight traffic, pay for parking or even make a special trip to our yoga center. We can just practice at the click of our mouse, wherever we feel comfortable. Even our hotel room when you travel.
  • Clear visual and audio instruction – Using the same technology as the Hollywood movie studios, we can get full screen, High Definition (HD) quality streaming video online. We do not need to wait and we do not even need to waste electricity downloading the videos overnight. It's as convenient as putting on a DVD.
  • More health improving yoga poses – Having access to a library of online videos means we get a wide range of routines and a greater range of yoga poses and their unique benefits to your body and mind – just like you'd get in class.

The Most Important Step Before You Start An Internet Business

Posted on Posted in internet, website

There’s a very simple way to almost ensure that your new Internet Business will be successful before you even start it, – and that’s by doing your homework. It seems an obvious thing to say, but so many fail at the first hurdle by jumping straight in without a correct plan of action. As the saying goes, – ‘fail to plan, plan to fail’.

The common mistake made by budding online entrepreneurs, is creating (or taking stock of) a product and then trying to sell it via their website. Those Internet Marketers who really know the secrets to online success however do the complete opposite; they find a hungry market first and then simply provide them products tailored to their interests. It’s a devastatingly simple concept, but then most of the best and most successful methods usually are!

So what does this homework entail and how do we go about it?

As well as being the biggest marketplace ever seen, the Internet is also the best possible research tool to find out about specific markets. It allows us to go through many different processes to determine the overall popularity of ‘niche markets’, – and the fact that it gives us so many methods in which to undergo market research, means we should get pretty conclusive results.

Wordtracker and Google’s own keyword search.

Check some of the keywords or phrases that relate to your market – see how many people have been using them to search. Ideally you’re looking for upwards of 2000 daily searches for a very popular niche.

Google AdWords Advertisements.

Type in your niche subject into Google and check if there are many people already advertising their products with Google AdWords. These advertisements are listed down the right side of Google’s search results. If you see the same adverts repeated continuously then it’s safe to assume it’s because they work and that the product on offer is selling well.

Google Search Results.

While you’re there check the search results themselves for sheer volume of sites. You’re not necessarily just looking for commercial sites related to your proposed niche, more just websites in general to get an idea of the level of interest.

YouTube Videos.

How many videos are listed when you type in your particular subject, and how many views have the videos received? YouTube is a fabulous research tool; more and more people are searching for and publishing video content all the time. The figures that YouTube attach to each video allow us to see exactly how many people have viewed in a specific time frame.

Groups, Forums, Message Boards, Facebook.

These are places where you find groups of people all interested in the same topic, have a look to see if those catering for your market are a hive of activity. Facebook in particular is gaining in popularity at an astonishing rate; you will get a pretty clear idea of the popularity of your niche by checking out the Facebook groups centred on it.

Running Gear Review – Nike Plus Vs Garmin Forerunner 205-305 GPS

Posted on Posted in computer, gadget, internet, website

As a gadget and tech junkie, it was to my good fortune that my initiation into the world of distance running rough coincided with the appearance on the market of several new high-tech running gadgets: the Garmin Forerunner 205 and 305, and the Nike + system . I have used both the Garmin Forerunner 205 and Nike + for greater than 6 months each, and what follows is a review and comparison of my experiences with them.

The Nike + System
Back in 2007, I was just beginning my life as a runner, and I was looking for tools to help me progress. The Garmin Forerunner and Nike + systems both had instant appeal to my techie side, though I was initially hesitant to invest the several hundred dollars (at the time) needed to buy a Forerunner. I was also swept up in the excitation surrounding the introduction of the Nike + system, and my first pair of "real" running shoes were Nike + ready. Since I owned an Ipod Nano, and had shoes that could accommodate the little Nike + foot pod accelerometer internally, I decided to give Nike + a try. In the interest of full disclosure, I'll say at the outset that I no longer use the Nike +. However, that does not necessarily mean that I would not recommend it to anyone since it does have its benefits and uses. The Nike + certainly helped my running in those early days, and the motivation provided by the on-line Nike + challenges was great. I liked being able to gauge my pace, track distance, and record my runs on-line. But for a perfectionist like myself, the Nike + has some major drawbacks.

The most serious problem I had with the Nike + was that it was only really accurate if I ran at the same steady pace on every run, and stuck to more-or-less flat ground. Any deviation from the pace you calibrate it at messes up both the pacing data as well as the distance recording for your run, and at times I found these measurements to be quite far off. Now, for many runners this is not a big deal, but if you like to mix up your training and include things like interviews, tempo runs, and long, slow runs, the Nike + comes up way short. Furthermore, for me as a road racer, tenths of a mile and accurate pacing data matter a lot, so these shortcomings presented some major problems. That being said, I'm glad that I used it, and it did help a lot when I first started out. Even after I upgraded to the Garmin Forerunner 205, I did still continue to use Nike + for treadmill runs (this probably goes without saying, but GPS does not work on a treadmill). The Nike + recordings on a treadmill are accurate enough, and in my case are more accurate than the readout of my treadmill's own data console (it has never worked …

A Great Debate: Real Drums Vs Programmed Drums

Posted on Posted in internet, programming

This is a great hot-button issue that has become more and more prevalent in recent years with the introduction of professional-sounding drum programming software. But are programmed drums better than a real flesh-and-blood drummer?

I came across a really interesting article while going about my daily internet surfing. It really is a very good article providing unbiased looks at this issue from both sides. It comes to us from a man named Joe Gilder, who manages an excellent little musical blog called "Home Studio Corner." HSC is an excellent down-to-earth resource for anyone who owns a home studio. Look it up and check out his stuff. I bet you'll like what you find.

As for this issue, personally I will always advocate for a real flesh-and-blood drummer. There are just just some things that a human drummer can do that a program simply can not replicate. I'm not just speaking on an aesthetic level either (things like skill level, sound quality, etc.) but rather I'm speaking more to the deeper human element of a recording. For example, the chemistry that exists between band members when they're really locked in to what they're doing is something that can not exist and can not be replicated by a program. Not that programmed drums (such as work done with Superior Drummer) doesnt sound excellent when there's an engineer who really knows what they're doing behind the helm … but there is simply nothing like a real human drummer. Records are not supposedly to sound like robots played the instruments (except maybe EDM, I suppose.) They're likely to sound human.

Once again I'd like to make it clear I'm not bashing programmed drums. I think they have the ability to sound incredible. I just prefer a real human being behind the drum set. Call me old fashioned, but that's how you're supposed to record a record. I've also seen it many times (not all times, by any means) where a band goes into the studio and programs their drums and their record comes out sounding like a million bucks, but then you go see them live and you're just sitting there scratching your head because it's nowhere near the same, especially with the drums. I've seen it get to the point where it's like it's not even the same guys playing the music in front of me that played it in the studio. Just not even close to the record. I like to call these types of groups "internet bands," because that's exactly what they are. A live performance from a band is supposed to be nothing short of mind-blowing. Something that can not be captured on a CD, which is one of the reasons people are going to see it live, coupled liking the music. …

HDMI Splitter – What Exactly Is HDMI Technology And Where Can You Use It

Posted on Posted in internet

High Definition Video and Audio has lead to new heights in immersive entertainment experiences. With increased pixel density and better surround sound options, the home theater experience has become a reality. Of course these improvements in entertainment quality required a better streamlined connectivity option which is provided by the High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI).

HDMI has been adopted as the preeminent interface for providing the most complete and immersive entertainment experience. As the idea of ​​what that immersive experience should be changed, the HDMI standard has been revised to address these improvements. Early HDMI simply addressed the provision of quality video and audio signals to a compliant display. Newer revisions, however, include the ability for the display to provide information back to the source and create the more complete experience.

Now it is possible for the display to share the source device's internet connection through the same HDMI cable. It is also possible for the remote control to control multiple devices in remote locations through the Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) feature. Equally important are other features such as the Audio Return Channel (ARC) which allows the display to send audio back to an audio receiver and speaker system. Perhaps the greatest improvement of all is the ability to include 3D video at resolutions as high as 4Kx2K. All of this means that the home entertainment center is able to rival the experiences of many professional cinemas.

Home entertainment is not the only area of ​​the market that has benefited from these improvements. Hospitals, advertisers, hotels, and bars are all taking advantage of these new features. It becomes easy to imagine situations where these institutions may need more than one display that has each of these features showing the same content. This is where devices such as an HDMI Splitter have been adapted to meet a very specific need. Whether it is a bank of televisions in a bar, or spread out across the lobby of a hotel to provide information to guests, the applications are nearly limitless.

Cat5 HDMI Splitter Extender products can also be used to provide information to health care professionals and their patients in locations safely removed from harmful environments or sensitive devices. These are typically used for long distance HDMI signal transmission over Cat5e / Cat6 UTP or STP cables. They maintain perfect image quality and support video resolutions up to 1080p. The biggest advantage of using these HDMI Splitters is that they eliminate the need to run long HDMI cables. …

Electronics Industry Invests in Fashion Conscious Gadgets

Posted on Posted in gadget, internet

While gadgets have traditionally been attractive because they do novel or impressive things, many gadgets these days are designed with thought put into how they look. This is true for mobile phones more so than any other type of gadget. For example, the Motorola Razr phone was as much of a fashion statement as it was a useful device. "Was" is the operative word when considering the Razr because it has recently gone out of style and the number of units of the model sold have plummeted. That's illustrative of one of the dangers of making electronic devices that are designed to satisfy the fickle notions of fashion that many people have. That said though, a lot of companies are doing it anyway. For example, LG electronics which is based out of South Korea has jumped onto the fashionable mobile phone bandwagon. LG- which has been known for producing low cost handsets in the past- has more recently collaborated with Prada to produce a handset that bears the Prada name. The Prada phone was developed with image in mind when it came to everything from the look of the actual phone to the icons that go on the screen to the ring tones and to the hard leather case and lint cloth that comes with it.

The Prada phone also has a fair amount of functionality built into it including the ability to take digital photographs. It also has touch screen features and can be used to surf the Internet. The Prada phone is also a multimedia device that can be used to listen to music, look at digital photos, and watch video.

Another venture into the fashion world of LG can be seen in its newer sliding phones. With these gadgets the screen on the phone slides up to reveal the keypad. In addition to being flashy, these phones have some practical benefits as well. The most obvious benefit of this design is the fact that it allows for a larger screen on a more compact device.

In addition to practical concerns, this device also has a fair amount of flair built into it as well. One model has a polished black casing, buttons that glow red, and a screen that becomes a mirror when it's turned off. There's another model that features a shiny metal casing along with similar features to the one mentioned above.

There are a number of problems associated with making phones that are stylish. One problem is economic in nature. Namely, because fashion trends are so fickle and change so quickly, a company that focuses on making fashionable electronic products could quickly see all of its efforts to go the way of the Razr phone if the winds of style blow the wrong way.

The other problem with fashionable electronic devices is that in many ways, achieving a certain look presents engineering problems. For example, polished metal is stylish these days, but metal does not allow mobile phones to transmit and receive signals as …

Website Promotion Strategies – Using PPC Marketing

Posted on Posted in internet, website

As an effort to get website traffic, many website owners have already begun using pay-per-click advertising. When Google introduced Adwords, webmasters were impressed that they only had to pay a fee when someone actually visited their website.

Examples of PPC Marketing

Google AdWords allows advertisers to create advertisements (based on content) that ever appear on the search results page of the Google search engine. Websites that give the OK to allow these kinds of advertisements to appear on their pages will receive monetary compensation in return. Every time someone clicks on an ad displayed on a web page, the owner of the site accumulates profit.

Yahoo also offers pay-per-click advertising, although Google is the industry leader and most recognizable. Yahoo's pay-per-click program used to be called Overture, but is now called Yahoo Search Marketing.

Together, these two services make up the largest pay per click systems on the World Wide Web. However, many other individual sites provide website owners with different sponsorship capabilities, such as ExactSeek, ABC Search, and Enhance.

PPC Marketing Benefits

The attractiveness of pay per click is seen in the level of targeting available to advertisers. With PPC, it is rather uncomplicated to market to the kind of audience you wish to reach. Many site owners have positioned advertisements that only appear when specific search terms are used or on websites that cater to a particular kind of readership. This method increases the quality of traffic that visits a site – bringing in visitors that are more likely to show interest in the type of products or services you are offering.

Another benefit of pay per click advertising is the fact you only pay for the clicks to your site. There's no need to pay simply for exposure, you only pay for actual visitors who are interested in what is being sold at your site. In addition, tracking your results is not a hassle, because in-depth statistics (given in real-time) show you exactly how your marketing is doing. This is one reason PPC has gained a great following among online businesses that solely use the Internet for advertising, as well as traditional companies (bricks-and-mortar) that are searching for effective methods of marketing.

Because pay per click marketing allows webmasters to track and target their results, the offline advertising such as magazine, newspaper, and television have suffered a decrease in advertising sales. PPC has also replaced CPM (cost per thousand impressions) advertising that once served as the original foundation used to sell advertising on websites. With CPM, advertisers had to pay for their advertisements whether they produced traffic to their website or not. This method did help the branding of a business, but did not help much with getting sales. And advertisers were not able to track or modify their efforts because they had no way of assessing the effectiveness or progress of their ads.

If you want to get the best results possible from your pay per click campaigns, it is recommended to become familiar with how …

How To Select A Good SEO Company!

Posted on Posted in internet, seo, website

I once read a remark that if a SEO company can not top (at least) for the keyword "SEO" in Google, it can not be a worthy company.

I know a lot of people might come up with the same logic while searching for the best SEO Company for his site. But let's take a look at the scenario from some different angles.

Why do you target some keywords in your website? The answer is obviously to get targeted visitors who are looking for some service – those who are my potential customers.

But does the word SEO have the potential to bring me genuine customers? For example if my site ranks 1st on Google for 'SEO Services' and 'SEO', which one do you think will get me desired visitors who are willing to buy a service? The answer is obviously SEO Services. And at the same time the competition for SEO Services is comparatively less (but tough) then SEO.

Most of the good SEO companies get clients on recommendations. For example, if I like XYZ Company's job, I will recommend it for my friend's site. And that XYZ get more clients – simple.

Another big reason is that a lot of SEO companies do not want their name to be associated with the term SEO to search engines.

But if some SEO companies say that due to heavy work pressure that could not concentrate on the ranking of their website – do not believe them or do not work with them either. If they can not find time to work for their mother site, how much time can you expect for your own site?

Now, the problem is somewhere else – every one claims them to be the best SEO Company. And unless I get recommendation from some reliable sources, it is tough to decide their credibility.

So how to find the best SEO company?

To start with it is better to go for local SEO companies (for example search for Florida or Ft Lauderdale SEO and website marketing in search engines if you are from that region). If you are new to internet marketing, this is the best option to start as they are comparatively cheap and you may get someone in your extended friend's community who can give you some feedback about them. At least you can reach them physically at any point of time.

If some companies say that they will help you guaranteed top ranking in Google or Yahoo for a very competitive keyword like SEO Services and they will do it within one month – do not work with them. Getting a good search engine rank is a long term process and no one can guarantee it. And even if they do it with some black hat SEO techniques, it may harm your business in the long run and this sort of ranking is normally not sustainable for a long period.

Ask for their track record – if they have done some good work …
