Are You Investing in Your Business for the Long Haul?

  • October 29, 2014

One of the biggest challenges facing small business owners is how to balance the daily obligations and tasks with planning for the future.

It is often difficult for managers and owners to figure out how to achieve that balance, but it is essential for long-term growth.

Call of the Urgent

Many small business owners focus on whatever is most urgent.

If they are just starting out, it may be marketing to gain new customers. When the marketing pays off and they face an influx of new business, they must deal with the challenges that come along with it.

When the wave of business has slowed down, they often have to start from the beginning. It can become tiring over time as they attempt

Blog on a Daily Basis (If You Can)

  • Skye Leist
  • October 28, 2014

According to HubSpot’s 2013 State of Inbound Marketing Report:

Seventy-nine percent of companies who have a blog report a positive ROI for inbound marketing this year, compared with just 20% of those companies that do not have a blog. In fact, 82% of marketers who blog on a daily basis acquired a customer using their blog, as opposed to 57% of marketers who just blog monthly – still an impressive statistic!

Basically, this data is telling us that blogging on a monthly basis is good, but blogging on a daily basis is even better. If you’re currently in the “monthly basis” group, it’s time to seriously consider ramping up your blog posting frequency. Yet, the most important thing to think about is whether or not you have the resources to do so. If ramping up your blog posting frequency means that the additional content might be rushed or the quality might not be as great, don’t even think about it. But if you ca

Vast Majority of Mobile Users Visually Engage with Native Advertising

  • Edward Newcomb
  • October 22, 2014

At a recent IAB UK Digital Upfronts event, Yahoo revealed research showing that mobile users aren’t turned off by native ads. In fact, mobile users are twice as likely to say that they don’t care if content is an ad–as long as it is engaging.

Yahoo research indicated that 85% of mobile users “visually engaged” with native ads presented in the context of a stream of content, which is 21 percent higher than the number of users who engage with other mobile channel display ads.

“The mobile stream and the integrated impact of advertising and content sitting so well together, so that people don’t filter out ads, is the upside and benefits of what native is about,” Patrick Hourihan, Yahoo EMEA head of research told Marketing Week.

In a recent SearchEngineWatch.com report, Adam Stetzer proposed that native advertising may be the missing link in many small business content marketing plans.

Snapchat to users ‘this is going to feel a little weird’

Snapchat launched their first in-app ad today and with it came the all-to-familiar, we hope this will save us, apology.

This one might be my all-time favorite:

This weekend we’re placing an advertisement in “Recent Updates” for Snapchatters in the United States. It’s the first time we’ve done anything like this because it’s the first time we’ve been paid to put content in that space. It’s going to feel a little weird at first, but we’re taking the plunge.

The app caters to young users and it has a reputation for naughty behavior, so I get the thinly veiled, double entendres but still. . . .

 An advertisement will appear in your Recent Updates from time to time, and you can choose if you want to watch it. No biggie. It goes away after

A Lot Of First-Page Google Results Are Using HTTPS

  • Skye Leist
  • October 18, 2014

[ Search]

Two months ago, Google announced that HTTPS is now a ranking signal used in its algorithm. The company had been pushing the use of HTTPS (HTTP over TLS/Transport Layer Security) for quite some time, and called for “HTTPS everywhere” at Google I/O earlier in the summer.

This week at SMX East Google indicated that 30% of first-page search results have HTTPS URL, which seems to say a lot. Barry Schwartz at SMX sister site Search Engine Land reports:

Gary [Illyes] explained that while only 10% of the crawled and discovered URLs on the web are HTTPS URLs, that 30% of the first page search results contain at least one or more HTTPS URLs. So if you are looking at all the queries done on Google, 30% of the first page of the Google search results for each of those queries have at least one HTTPS URL listed in the results.

He didn’t know why that was the case but he said it was indeed something Google noticed and wanted to share.

Google said when it announced the ranking signal that it would be a very lightweight signal at least for the time being. The c
