5 Ways Content Marketing is Changing Business

Content marketing as a concept has been around for decades. In today’s high-paced world of social media and checks-and-balances, producing content has become a business in and of itself. The way content marketing has been envisioned, implemented, and assessed may have changed a lot in the past 20 years, but the basic principle hasn’t: marketing is all about telling customers why they need your business.

Here are five ways content marketing truly is changing the face of business in 2013.

5. It’s now necessary for businesses to define exactly who they are. Perhaps the best and worst thing about content marketing is that it forces companies to take a good, hard look at their ideals, standards, and brand identity. Gone are the days when businesses could plead ignorance or stay “above the fray.” Content marketing means creating relevant content which can only be accomplished once you know who your business is and what it stands for.

4. Businesses now have a more equal playing field. It’s a sad fact that mom and pop shops appear to be a dying breed in much of America, but content marketing is helping decrease the distance between Big Business and Main Street. Thanks to the internet, good content can (and will) be shared regardless of who created it, so having something valuable to say is no longer the sole privilege of Fortune 500 companies. In fact, small businesses may actually have more to gain by effective, regular content marketing.

3. Companies now have more control than ever over how their brand is portrayed to the public. One of the best things about content marketing is that it allows marketers and whole brands to choose a stance. Designating your company as an expert in a particular segment of your industry, for example, by putting out regular blog posts and articles can drive business from that segment. Content marketing isn’t just about disseminating information, either. It’s about responding to what your customers are asking from you whether it’s data, explanations, or testimonials.

2. Customers are able and encouraged to make highly-informed decisions. Before the internet, customers often found themselves blindly choosing between businesses – perhaps with the help of a consumer reporting magazine, at best. With so much content out there nowadays it’s not only possible it’s advisable to do loads of research before making any big money decision, for consumers and B2B transactions. Giving potential customers loads of info on who your company is and what it’s an expert on before they get to the purchasing phase can help set the stage for them to buy from you.

1. Businesses have more accountability than ever before. It is no longer possible to ignore customer complaints or hide behind an automated phone line. Content marketing goes hand-in-hand with social media in that it requires a sense of honesty and openness never before seen in business. Don’t just think of content marketing as a chore – it’s an opportunity! It’s a chance for your business to talk directly to your current and potential customers, whether that’s providing free info, negating a negative news piece on your industry, or just giving valuable advice. Content marketing means you have to face your customers head on, but that’s a good thing. Businesses competing openly means better experiences for the customers.

An Introduction To Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is easy nowadays - thanks to the introduction of the internet. The internet has made it cheap, easy and affordable to become an affiliate marketer unlike those days when marketing had to be executed through use of telephones and other equipment to get updates on the manner their programs are coming along.

So, with improvement in technology, affiliate marketing for beginners has become easy. Let us assume that the marketer is working from his/her home, a day will resemble something like this ….

Upon waking up, he/she takes breakfast; thereafter he/she turns on the laptop or computer to check out the current developments of the network. As far as affiliate marketing for beginners is concerned, the marketer has to update some new things and keep track on statistics and therefore he/she has to update him/herself on regular basis.

Affiliate marketing for beginners can be explained as follows.

As a beginner, you should be aware that the real affiliate marketing environment does not require you to have your own website. Neither does it involve dealing with buyers, complaints nor production and maintenance. It is among the easiest methods of launching into stress free business and earning profits.

Assuming you have decided to enter this industry, what should be the next aspect that you need to do? Multiply your earnings, right? How can you do that?

Reviews on affiliate marketing for beginners gives the following 3 guidelines on how to increase your marketing commissions

  • Get to know the profitable programs and products to sell. Definitely, you need to market goods and services that will allow you to get the greatest rewards within the shortest time possible. There are several hints you need to take into consideration in selecting such programs. You need to choose those products that have a good commission structure. Go for products that fits your target customers. Moreover, choose those that have sound track records of dealing with their affiliates with ease and on time. You can find several affiliate programs that would not compel you to be meticulous. You can inspect them by just doing some online search.
  • It is important to keep the details of those who are interested in your products. You need to have their email addresses. This is because you need to do follow-ups on them since the probability of customers going for a product on their first solicitation is minimal. You need to contact them back multiple times to remind the buyers to buy from you and therefore you should be able to contact them. Collect contact details of every prospective buyer before you send them to the vendor's website. If you can get a hold of their contact details, you can go ahead and submit other marketing-related messages to the buyers. By doing so, you will earn progressive commissions. Publishing a newsletter or magazine will also help in multiplying your earnings. Publishing highly sought after content on the web such as Pure Leverage reviews is proven to attract the most prospects. It is always advisable to recommend an item to an individual whom you know and this is the function of the newsletter.
  • Negotiating for higher commissions from your merchant is also essential. If you are successful, definitely your merchant will not hesitate to increase your earnings. Remember that your merchant values your services and you should not shy away from negotiating for a higher pay. However, you should ask for reasonable pay that will not develop a bad image out of you.

7 Ways To Do Better Email Marketing

Email Marketing
Entrepreneurs who are utilizing the web to sell their products and services employ various strategies in their campaigns, one of which is through email marketing. By means of sending out emails, they can reach their customers to give the latest news on their products as well as current promotions that can attract more sales. Email marketing aims to connect not only with current customers, but also to those who they see to be potential buyers and patrons. If done effectively, sales can be significantly given a boost through this form of marketing. This is why every businessman should be aware of the ways to better their email marketing.

Plan Well Before Execution

Sending out emails seems like a no-brainer, but if you want to get the right response from your customers then you should plan your campaign well. Identify your objective and build your strategies around it. Not all newsletters should be written using the same format and template. Some may need to be more persuasive if you need immediate actions from your readers, while some may simply be a way to connect and build your relationship with your customers.

Do Not Spam

Email marketing is very cost-effective since you do not have to spend a lot of money on it, but this should not be a cause for you to spam the inboxes of your customers with daily emails. Instead of gaining their trust, you will be doing otherwise and your emails can end up in the spam boxes. Schedule your emails, send them appropriately, and make sure that they contain relevant content.

Well-targeted Customers

There are many ways to get a hold of a mailing list nowadays. However, if you want good results on your campaigns, it is still best to opt for a permission-based subscription. The main advantage of this is that you are assured that the people in your list will be those who are interested in your products in the first place. Therefore, this gives a positive effect on your conversion rates. It is also proper ethics to approach people who gave you permission to do so; rather than just barge in on unsuspecting email readers.

Quality Content

Now that you have determined your objective, developed your strategies, and identified the email recipients, it is time to work on the content of your emails. The most important part is the subject line, so keep it clear and enticing. Provide the necessary information in the body of the mail, starting with the most relevant going to the least. Keep the email short, as most readers have no time to go over lengthy mails. Make sure that your contact details are also provided and close the email with information about your company to attract trust.

Compatibility to Mobile Devices

Most people use their mobile devices to check on their emails, so it is also wise to use an email format that is compatible for these devices if you want your email to be readable anywhere and anytime.

Test Your Emails

Some marketers forget this crucial step. It is important to test your emails on various platforms to ensure that they will work. You may be waiting on end for a response from your readers only to find out later that your email did not reach them at all. Although a good autoresponder service like Pure Leverage often has no hiccups, it’s still good practice to do a test

Develop Your Email List

Keep your current list and edit it accordingly based on the response you get. You may need to delete some if you are asked to, and you essentially have to improve your list to include more potential buyers.
