Lindsay’s SEO and SMM Alert – 11/12/10 Addition

I’ve been at the 2010 Glazer Kennedy Info Summit the past two days. And although I have been to many of these conferences over the years, I always enjoy the little nuggets that I get. Whether a much needed reminder of something I’m currently not implementing or something new to take home, my father always said that if you can walk away from these trips with one nugget that you take home and implement than your trip was a success.

I’ve gotten several- but here’s one I picked up very early in Dan’s presentation yesterday morning: Proprietary Language. (Now, keep in mind this is different than industry jargon.)

Proprietary Language (specific terminology used to describe your group, your product, your niche) does two things for people who buy:

  1. It gives them a sense that they belong to some, like a fraternity
  2. It gives them a sense of superiority.

We learned as kids the difference of being an “insider” and an “outsider” and the products that do the best are the ones that inherently build the relationship with their prospect by creating a clear distinction of being “in the know.” This is why membership sites do so well. Are you currently using this in your business? What’s exclusive and VIP about what you currently offering? If the answer is ‘nothing,’ then maybe you should try it.

Back to more learning!

Have a great weekend!

Local Business Listing Optimizations Becomes Important for all Businesses

Fact: “The recent search results change at Google not only displays the regular organic search results, but if there are local business listings that are relevant to the requested search they are showing up above fold and tend show more results than the organic website results.” What does that mean for you?

The 3 C’s of Social Content: Consumption, Curation, Creation

“The social landscape is populated by individual presences, but charted by its connections and how in turn, they move information between them. These conduits represent the opportunities for brands and media to participate in and steer the sharing of useful and mutually beneficial content. Much in the same way that people align through diverse behavior, Forrester research tracks how this behavior factors into the adoption of social technology.”

Timing is EVERYTHING in Online Marketing

I agree with this article 100%. If you aren’t very good at time management, I suggest you get there and quickly. Online marketing is a game and if you do not manage your time effectively you will waste a lot of it. One of the things I always talk about is to make sure to establish some sort of schedule for yourself, otherwise, chances are, it will never get done (I am guilty of that myself! :))
