+ Yes, Reach and Engagement Metrics Still Matter
Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

A read an article recently on a very widely followed digital marketing firm’s blog titled something like “Useless Metrics You Shouldn’t Be Tracking.” (The title has been changed to protect the hapless.) I was surprised to see that the basic gist of the article was that you should ignore reach metrics pretty much entirely. Wow! […]

+ SEO Beyond What’s On the Page
Friday, August 21st, 2015

There’s more to SEO than just keyword-focused content on each website page. My latest column on Biznology.com discusses why social media, mobile-awareness and a secure site all matter for SEO success. Read the full piece here.

+ Three Secrets to Memorable Content
Friday, August 14th, 2015

Sure, we’d all like our content to go viral, but that’s not realistic and quite honestly, it’s not even necessarily effective marketing. (Though it certainly can be – see Blendtec and Dollar Shave Club, among others.) A better goal – and one that’s more achievable – is to create content that is memorable. For content to be […]

+ Search and Filtering on Your Website
Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

Great content is great only if your audience can find it. And if they make it to your site via organic search, PPC advertising, social media or other means, it’s heartbreaking to think they still might not find the most relevant content. That’s why search and filtering features on your website are so important. My […]

+ Twitter vs. TV Advertising
Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

TV advertising works. You may not like it, and as a digital marketer, you may bristle at the idea that it’s effective. But it’s hard to imagine marketers spending some $76B a year on something that’s completely ineffective. (Which doesn’t mean they’re not slow in adapting to digital’s strengths …) The folks at Twitter probably […]

+ Content Marketing Against Instead of For
Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

My latest piece on the Biznology blog is up. This time around I’ve focused on the anti-matter of content marketing: marketing that takes a stand against something rather than for something. Seems an odd idea at first glance: isn’t it always better to be positive? And yet, a quick scan of the headlines shows you that people […]

+ Online Advertising and Encouraging Engagement
Thursday, May 28th, 2015

About three quarters of consumers in the US do more multitasking while watching TV ads than while watching digital ads. That’s either fantastic news for online advertising or a poorly worded survey question. (If you’re still multitasking but not doing so “on another device” is that really any different?) Either way, the survey, Deloitte’s Digital […]

+ Is Online Advertising Getting Better?
Friday, May 15th, 2015

Nobody likes advertising, except when it rises to an art form. (Think budget-busting Super Bowl ads.) And even then, well, one person’s treasure is another’s trash. In part this is because advertising is either forgettable, as in much of the local print advertising most of us see, or it’s intrusive, like the broadcast TV model. […]
