I had the pleasure of talking to many talented people including Jeff Dickey from NextCast
Hi, My name is Hayley I am the Project Consultant of Webmosa. This is my first appearance on the Webmosa blog. I am excited and have lots of fun stories to share with you.
One of the greatest advantages I get working for Webmosa, is getting to sit front and center to the fabulous advancement of internet technology. EVERY DAY there are new programs, apps, and scripts being made to take what used to be a simply industry, into revolutionary kick-&*# marketing platform.
If your website is even just a few years old, you could very well be missing out. Here are just a few of my favorite things
This is a fantastic question, and one that is quite popular. SEO stands for “Search Engine Optimization”, and it short, it is what helps websites show up for searches. Often people think that simply by owning a website, people will just visit and become customers - this is wrong, very wrong.
One of the best tactics of marketing is to put yourself in the shoes of the customer. If YOU wanted to buy from YOUR industry, how would you do it? Most likely, there isn’t one well known area where all of the industry businesses just hang out, making shopping easy for the customers. So the real question is ‘how do you find YOU’? Thousands of people every single second perform a Google search to answer a question the face, often their question is how they can find a business to solve a problem they face. The solution to this, is SEO.
A website is a program, which is full of tens of thousands of lines of coding. Plain and simple, it is a big.... fat.... mess of text!
Webmosa has officially passed the 3 year anniversary, and one of the most frequent dilemmas we have faced before signing a new client is explaining to them how we differ from build-it-yourself websites, or having a friend/family member build it for you. All certainly have their pros and cons, here we will lay it all out!
Why do we have so many social networking sites? Don’t they all basically do the same thing? And if they don’t, can’t Facebook just keep taking the best attributes of each site and mandate new upgrades like they seem to do every 3 months? Changes and upgrades that spark fear and outrage into the hearts of users who eventually learn to utilize the new platform, and then love it. I think it’s safe to say that the late Steve Jobs was onto something when he stated, “it’s not the consumers job to know what they want;” and we’ve seen Facebook implement this strategy repeatedly with success. But what about Google+? (Don’t have it yet? Want it? Click Here)
When it comes to advertising to people in bulk, it can become a costly affair, sometimes producing minimal results. Especially under economic difficulties, people look for inexpensive means to broadcast their message. There are many companies that offer a service to bulk email thousands of people, however sometimes this requires a service subscription, and can be either be costly for small businesses, or simply be too large of campaign to suit their needs.
In 2005 a company purchased MySpace for close to 580 million dollars; just 6 years later it was resold at a price nearly 35 million dollars. In those painful 6 years, Facebook astonishingly acquired the spotlight and became the social media giant it is today. There is much speculation as to why MySpace failed, even with its enormous head start; personally I believe it is because they sold out.
What made Facebook great was the exclusivity, and cleanliness of the program. While MySpace had loud profile pages, Facebook was simply blue and white. Instead of being bombarded by advertisements on MySpace, users could choose what to read and see on Facebook.
The whole purpose and reason Facebook became successful was because they were exclusive, it was to be a clean and prestige online community. Unfortunately, what made Facebook so great has now been plagued with so many fake accounts and scammers alike. If you are not already aware, you can Google “facebook fan boost” and find hundreds of companies willing to sell you fans for next to nothing prices. On paper this might look exceptionally appealing, but be careful of those you choose to do business with.
Recently I was in a meeting with a prospective client who showed a great concern about the content writing aspect for their website. Though slightly relieved to find out that Webmosa handles most of the writing for clients, but the prospect then showed another concern which was how could our writer possibly understand their unique market? This is actually quite a simple task; here is how to accomplish it with just 3 main objectives:
Blogging has many great benefits, but the absolute goal would be if your post could go viral. Though there is no way to guarantee those results, there are certainly ways to increase your chances.
