It’s a good question! And the answer is yes, of course you should. In fact, you probably need paid social media marketing more so now than ever before!Read More
A rapidly emerging entity of digital marketing is social media advertising. Social media are fun, creative, informative and engaging platforms that can boost business revenues.
If done strategically, one high-quality, valuable post can singlehandedly increase following in a matter of hours!
Imagine if that was your company’s post. You could be looking at new leads and skyrocketing conversions, which, in turn, increases sales or brand awareness. No matter what your business goals and objectives are, social media will come to the rescue and help you achieve them.Read More
Social media. It’s a rum old thing, ain’t it?!
It seems that every day there’s a new platform introduced, one bought out by someone else, one dropping off the radar.
Just as soon as you’ve got your head around one social media platform, it turns out that its no longer down wiv da kids, and they’ve all moved somewhere else anyway. There’s just you and your Nan left, liking each other’s cat videos.
Or, at least, as a thirty-something with a nine year old son, that’s how I feel! I’ve no sooner figured out one social media channel he’s using, and he’s lost interest in that one and has moved on to something completely new.Read More
When it comes to the social media marketing policy for your business, it’s often hard to know what you should and shouldn’t be putting out into the world.
In fact, this is the very worry we hear most often from our clients when discussing social media, so we know the fear is real.Read More
I’ve been writing these predictions blogs for years and every year I get somethings right and most things wrong. It’s the unpredictable nature of organic search marketing that keeps us SEO consultants gainfully employed. So take what you’re about to read with a pinch of salt!
When 2018 began, the total number of social media users in the United Kingdom (UK) reached over 39 million users, with estimates going up to 42 million users. Breaking it down by platform, this translates to:
- 76% on Facebook
- 43% on Twitter
- 39% on Instagram
- 24% on LinkedIn
- 27% on Pinterest
That’s a lot when you consider that, at the end of 2016, the population reached a record-high of 65.6 million. Read More
More and more, traditional marketing strategies are either going out the window or being saved for the big boys.
Since the big boys obviously don’t need little old me writing their marketing strategy, I’m going to talk to the rest of you, rest of us anyway. How do you compete?
What Is A Blog?
This week’s blog is about guess what? Blogging!
Which kind of makes sense, seeing as I have been writing blogs for Grow Traffic for a few weeks now, and I haven’t really understood the benefits, other than to indulge my love of writing for my favourite SEO company, and get paid for the privilege! Win win I say!
But before we look at the benefits of blogging, who will read your blog, and how to begin if you’ve never ventured in to blogging before but want to get started, we need to look at what actually is a blog? Read More
Unless you have been living in a cave for the last ten years, or you have recently landed here from another universe, you will be all too familiar with the way Social Media is the ‘thing’ to increase your personal profile, connect with friends and colleagues, and use as a source of information for anything, from planning days out to emergency plumbers when the boiler is on the blink!
Which begs the question, just how important is social media in growing your business online? Or put another way, can you really afford not to have an online profile for your business?
As anyone who knows me will tell you, I’m a Words Person. Not a Numbers Person – as my son is keen on reminding me – and rarely even a Pictures Person – if you’re going to stick me in an art gallery, you’re going to have to explain to me what I’m looking at. But give me words – anyone’s words; Shakespeare’s, Duffy’s, Attwood’s, hell, even Val McDermid’s – and I’m in heaven. Read More
You might say I should have better things to do with my life, but for the last few years I’ve been blogging about why content is king. It’s been the mantra of we SEO copywriters and content marketers for ages now, despite the intermittent prophecies that the content bubble is about to burst (it might, by the way, but I think we’re safe for now). But is it still true that content is king?
Happy New Year!
Having not written a GT blog for some considerable time, I have now been given the honour of writing our first blog of 2018 – and what an honour that is! I know, you’re jealous. I would be too.
And so, as it’s the start of a shiny new year and we’re all feeling positive and looking forward to all the good things that lie ahead (come on; it’s only the second week of January…we’re still positive!), the GT team are going to take it in turns to make some predictions on what this year may have in store for each of our areas of expertise. I know, the world and his dog are doing it, just bear with us…we need the keywords! 😉
So, as copywriting – or SEO copywriting, to be more specific – is my thing, I’m going to give you my predictions for SEO copywriting and content marketing in 2018, based on the questions I’ve most been asked recently. So, whether you’ve been content marketing for years or are a content virgin, you can make sure 2018 will be the year you finally start to grow your business online. Read More
As busy SEO consultants, our obvious number one priority is delivering results for our clients. We deliver actionable insights, that ultimately help them achieve their business goals. But how do we achieve our goals? More specifically, what tools do we use to help us achieve our business aims? Not from an SEO or marketing perspective, but the behind the scenes, daily running of a business sense.
Over the last year, we’ve heard a lot about fake news. Even before that there were questions about celebrities and social media stars connections with large brands. Who believes the photos in glossy magazines haven’t been airbrushed? Or that celebrities write their own autobiographies? Increasingly, the general public is getting wise to the reality of the people they aspire to be like. And I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read a post and believed Clint Eastwood has died! So what does this heightened awareness of ‘the fake’, do for influencer marketing? Read More
