Disruptive Shift In Digital Strategy – A Study by Ignite Visibility San Diego-based Ignite Visibility recently released a new study which highlights a growing shift in digital marketing. The study surveyed businesses in six revenue brackets – under 1 million, 1 to 5 million, 5 to 10 million, 10 to 20 million, 20 to 50 million and over 50 million – in order to gain insight into how they would be investing in digital marketing over the next two years. Additionally, the study analyzed which digital marketing channels would be most popular. “It’s incredibly important to be forecasting ahead and making sure you have the right digital strategy,” says Ignite Visibility CEO John Lincoln. “ We’re dedicated to bringing best-in-class insights to the industry so marketers can have the most effective strategy in place.”     The findings reveal an overall shift toward online marketing channels across all business categories. They also reveal that many smaller businesses still struggle to effectively measure ROI and conversion rates. Furthermore, social media is by far the hardest channel for businesses to manage. “We’re seeing a large shift from offline to online because digital channels are more trackable and generally produce a higher ROI,” continued Lincoln. In the study, we also say clear divisions in the business size and type of digital marketing channel they liked the most. But overall, social media marketing seemed to be a big pain point for all marketers.” To view the full study visit Ignite Visibility (New Study) 300 Marketers Reveal Disruptive Shift In Digital Strategy – Ignite Visibility Study reveals key findings in how marketers will shift marketing dollars through 2021.

The Best Blog Traffic Building Techniques

The Best Blog Traffic Building Techniques
The Best Blog Traffic Building Techniques Launching a blog might be easy but running it successfully is a tough call and you might want some serious, genuine insights on the inside secrets. Hence this post on “The Best Blog Traffic Building Techniques” which will serve as a kick starter to find your easy way through. 1. Identify Your Target Reader Your task is to find your target reader and then identify the social networks that reader prefers. Content marketing success starts with knowing how to find your target audience. After all, how can you begin creating content before you know who your audience is? Good content marketing takes time. You can’t afford to waste that time with content that isn’t perfectly focused on your target market. You need to find who your people are. But how? It’s true that great content tends to naturally attract an audience. It does not, however, guarantee that it will be the best audience for your brand. That means visitors that are likely to: a. Connect your content to your product. b. Buy your product because of your content. Blogging Like a Professional to Generate Revenue Defining who your real audience is will help you focus not only on creating great content but on creating the right content. It makes it easier to create content that makes you an authority in your industry, rather than creating content for its own sake. Before you can create content that resonates, it helps to know your intended audience (as well as who they are not). An audience definition should ideally connect these three things: 1. Your product or service 2. Your main audience demographic 3. Your content’s mission 2. Determine The Traffic Potential Of Target Social Networks From my experience, the social media sites that send the most traffic to blogs in general are: 1. Facebook 2. Twitter 3. Google+ 4. Pinterest 5. LinkedIn The results vary depending on your target reader. If your blog post is more oriented around professional readers and business you might have more potential traffic from LinkedIn and Google+. If your target reader is more visual it might make more sense to focus exclusively on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram. Once you start getting traffic from social networks you’ll be able to evaluate the traffic to determine if your target reader is visiting your blog. In your analytics, watch bounce rates on your posts. Segment out traffic from social media networks. You’ll be able to determine if traffic from certain networks provide better traffic than others. 3. Ways Of Driving Country-Specific Traffic Top level domain extensions like .com and .org usually rank higher on global search engines, but in order to have your blog or website target a specific country, buying a country-specific domain is always a good idea. You may notice that most Aussie bloggers are using the .au domain extension, and they rank pretty high in Australian Google. Similarly for India, you can target .in or .co.in as your domain extensions with good results in India. For traffic from the U.K. (United Kingdom), grab a .co.uk domain extension for the best results. 4. Google Webmaster Tool Geo-Targeting Google Webmaster Tool, a free tool from Google for bloggers and webmasters, will be very helpful to a blogger or webmaster seeking country-specific traffic. This tool allows you to set which country your website is targeted to, which helps you get traffic from that targeted country. Log in and verify your website in the Google Webmaster Tool, and under Configurations > Settings you can specify which country you wish to target. 5.
