If you’re serious about growing your business, building a healthy email list should be one of your top priorities. When it comes down to it, your list is one of the only online assets that you have 100% control over. Having a solid social media presence is absolutely essential (here’s why), but you’ll always be at the mercy of new and changing algorithms (think Facebook’s Edgerank). And achieving high search engine rankings is great too, but again, you’re at the mercy of changing algorithms and updates.
You might be doing all the right things to generate leads -- landing pages, gated content, contests, and more. The problem might be that the design or copy itself isn't driving the engagement you need. A/B test (also known as "split test") different aspects of your list-building campaigns with different versions of the same content. This includes the call-to-action text, the color of the gated offer, the time of day you're posting to social media, and even where on your website these signup forms are placed. Sometimes a small change can drive hundreds more conversions.

Saber Blast – This is the simple and intuitive email marketing software I created after I got tired of using Aweber and Mailchimp. Most people don’t know about it since it’s still new but if you’re on the market for an email marketing solution, this offers a lot of valuable features that the competition doesn’t. For instance, Saber Blast helps you increase the number of email subscribers you capture, provides automated follow-up (easy to manage autoresponder) and recommendations on who is and isn’t a lead from your email list based on their engagement levels. At it’s core, it’s designed to grow your business. It has minimal features when it comes to the design of your newsletter since we believe that’s actually a distraction from taking the revenue-growing action of creating great content to quickly and painlessly send to subscribers.
It’s not as clear cut as it seems. There are many content marketing tools that fall into multiple categories, but I have placed them in the category that best represents them. For example, Marketing AI measures analytics for your content, then helps you better optimize your content. In this case, should Marketing AI fall into the Analytics or Optimization tools group? In this case, I placed them in the Analytics group. However, Parse.ly is a relatively similar tool I decided to place into the Optimization category.
Altimeter. In April of 2013, Rebecca Lieb of Altimeter started a list of 15 content marketing vendors. We were flattered to have Curata included in the initial list. More recently, Altimeter has published a content marketing vendor landscape which includes over 100 content marketing tools. However, the list does not include some of the broader categories we have included here.

If you use (or plan to use) social media channels to connect with customers, consider applications that monitor social media conversations, track the results of social media marketing activities and allow you to measure the results of these campaigns. While social media marketing functionality is sometimes included in marketing automation platforms, many vendors also offer this as a best-of-breed solution.
As you already know, search engines have the power to send you thousands of visits per month. In fact, if you optimize for the proper keywords, a single page on your website could be receiving over thousands of visitors from search engines on a monthly basis. Massive traffic is why you can’t ignore SEO. While it takes time before you start seeing results, the outcome would be worth the effort.
All the tools suggested in this article are really effective. Thanks for sharing the list of quality tools for blog marketing which support them in blog marketing. I’ve read it thoroughly, I’m a tool-lover and I surely must try some of the tools which are new to me. Actually a few I require to look into; well most really. That’s a nice (and of course along) list of tools which can be applied to larger efficient marketing, for blogging. I am a newbie and often meet the problem of coming up with the new content though, but some of the tools that you stated above were pretty helpful for me.
Hi Kal, thanks for your comment. I am not sure what happened to those people whom you mentioned in the comment. Are they alright? I guess, as the writer I am at liberty to include marketers whom I like or have interacted with. For this post I have included only those marketers with whom I have some level of interaction. Harsh for example wanted to hire me for his blog. I have known Matthew Woodward since the time he started his award winning blog and so on.People like Frank Kern are so busy that they won’t even notice if I have written about them and they don’t actively blog too, I guess.
Why It Is Important: “It helps me keep all of my communications straight. It integrates with the majority of the tools out there, so it eliminates redundancy. I can login to most tools with it as well, so I don’t need to remember passwords. The HubSpot CRM is an amazing tool, for example, so with the Sales Pro add-on, it supercharges the way I use my email and makes my inbox an extension of my CRM. It’s the most efficient part of my business. I love it!” 

The timing of this closure has everything to do with the internal pressures I mentioned and nothing to do with the external pressures such as Microsoft. Were Microsoft not placing any pressure on BuildFeed, I doubt there'd be an issue, but it's also true that had I not made some mistakes in the past, there would be little to no internal pressures and we wouldn't be looking to close either.
Stop Motion is really intuitive and will help you make fantastic videos with the stop-motion technique. The app is available for iOS and features a host of interesting in-app purchases, such as green screen, image import or sound effects. You can watch and edit your video frame by frame, and use the app's brand new thumb menu to control all the edit options available for each frame.
In the lead-up to the Instagram Domination 2.0 launch, our goal was to populate our mailing list with warm leads and to gradually start turning up the heat. We did that by always making sure we never abused our mailing list by sending them spam, and building up a solid foundation of trust with our subscribers by constantly providing them with valuable content we knew they wanted.
Much like Hubspot, Social Media Examiner is really good at giving things away. Their homepage has a huge call-to-action to sign up for a free ebook. When you’re scrolling down an individual blog post, you see another CTA—a popup offering instant access to a free video. With events and webinars and many different forms of media, Social Media Examiner has lots of opportunity to appeal to subscribers in many different ways.
Marketing your products and services on the internet can be one of the most effective and lucrative ways to generate sales for your business, if you do it properly. Over time, the tactics you use will change, but as is true of anything, there are unchanging fundamental principles that will enable you to succeed regardless of which tactics you implement.
Buffer – This one is the simplest and most practical for the purposes of promoting content since it will automatically try to share the content you pop into its feed to your social profiles at the most relevant time, maximizing exposure. The main downside they scaled back on their free plan so now you’re limited to connecting 2 or 3 social media profiles before they required you to upgrade. Regardless, it’s still very affordable and worth the $20 per month they charge.
You might be doing all the right things to generate leads -- landing pages, gated content, contests, and more.

A/B test (also known as "split test") different aspects of your list-building campaigns with different versions of the same content.

Digital marketing includes email, social media and Web marketing, and everything needed for content marketing and multichannel campaigns. Online marketing consists of meeting customers at many different touchpoints, and using content to move them along their journey, including important segments like search engine optimization (SEO). It's purpose is to build customer trust, produce conversions, gain customer loyalty, and turn those customers into advocates for a given organization.
Jesse – thanks for your note, but Google is merely focusing (still!) on placing a solution. If you email me, I’ve just written a paper on the entire set of systemic issues that need to be managed that are outside our purview and idiosyncratic, based on change, consensus, buy-in, relationships, etc. There are 13 distinct steps (starting from an idea) that buyers go through to enlist colleagues, figure out if they can fix a problem internally, etc, that buyers go through before they can bring in a new solution. Sales enters at step 10. The Google material isn’t doing anything really different. [email protected] and, btw, my first name is ‘Sharon Drew’ 🙂
Medium Businesses looking to improve efficiency. Medium companies are in a constant development process, and they need to improve lead management by nurturing buyers to a sales-ready position, and by scoring them to examine which ones are more willing to buy. They need marketing software to automate the process, and to let agents focus on more attention-demanding aspects.
Online marketing is usually a long-term endeavor. For this reason, it’s critical that you maintain your focus over the long haul. This means setting attainable goals -- both short and long-term -- and not being swayed or distracted by irrelevant trends or fads. It means staying on task and seeing your plans through to completion, even when those around you may be trying new strategies and shifting course. While it’s certainly important to remain flexible and adaptive, changing your focus frequently can significantly eat into your productivity and leave you in a constant state of flux.
Simply Measured provides a selection of free reports you can use to analyse various social media accounts, including Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Google+. Even more in-depth is its Social Traffic Analysis, which works in conjunction with Google Analytics to give an overview of your site’s social traffic, presenting it in a visual and easy-to-read format.

Traditionally, companies price products and services using basic information like product cost, competitor pricing, perceived value of the product from the customer and demand. With big data, you can use many other factors to make pricing decisions. For example, you can use data from completed deals, incentives and performance-based data. Big data emphasizes making pricing decisions as granular as possible, particularly in the business-to-business (B2B) sector, as each deal is different from the next.


It can seem overwhelming when you think about the ever-evolving world of digital marketing. Where do you start? What are the first steps you should take when getting your feet wet in this critical area of study? In the following article, we will walk you through all the necessary steps to get you to a comfortable place of understanding what digital marketing is and how to use custom tools and strategies to your advantage?
Make a daily habit of one hour of action on your biggest goal. You’ll be astonished at how quickly you start to make progress. Ready, Fire, Aim author Michael Masterson recommends an hour of work on your dream goal every morning, as a way to start your day with a terrific rush of productivity. I’ve been doing just that for the past few months, and I’m starting to get used to the “whooshing” sound as the pieces fall into place. Not only does it work, it feels great too.
Another important aspect to consider is whether the cloud provider meets compliance and security requirements. Your firm is accountable to staff members, clients, business partners, and regulators. Therefore, you should select a provider that has implemented a technically sound and comprehensive security system. Map your security control requirements such as availability, integrity, confidentiality, privacy, and accountability to the provider’s capabilities. Ask the potential provider about the processes and systems they use to protect your sensitive data. Do they meet general as well as industry-specific compliance and security standards? Do they offer special measures to meet the unique security requirements of your specific industry? Get satisfactory answers to these queries before you make the investment.

The most successful companies online are those that establish themselves as THE authority for what they do in their respective markets. Over an extended period of time, there is no marketing substitute capable of trumping genuine authority. With “traditional media,” big brands have a huge advantage because they can afford to “rent” access to a target audience from the few companies that control it. In the new media world of the web, this is no longer the case.

People will leave your website without converting into an email subscriber. But in that very moment when someone decides to leave, you have one last opportunity.

This gives you one last chance at selling an individual on your newsletter and one last opportunity to capture their email.

You develop a strong relationship with your email subscribers through showing up in their inbox on a consistent basis. Note that I don’t mean you should be sending them emails every day and night. What I mean is you should think of them as you think of your closest relationships such as your friends and family. You should send them regular messages. It could be once or twice a week.
