More than ever before, people buy from people they know and trust. Being trustworthy -- and able to convey this trait to others -- is critical to being a successful online marketer. Garish, over-the-top landing pages; blatant self-promotion on social media; and spammy, keyword-laden copy will inevitably damage or destroy your online reputation. Being authentic and trustworthy is what will set you apart, helping you build long-term relationships with your customers and clients.
Within the past decade there has been a podcasting revolution going on, with the number of Americans who listen to podcasts doubling in seven years. Maybe it’s because they’re just so convenient and so much easier to consume, or maybe it’s because the format is just somehow perfect for storytelling. Whatever it is, podcasting is here to stay and is one of the most engaging forms of media out there.

Whether it’s on social media or your website, video is now one of the best performing types of content currently. Videos can help you reach a larger audience, drive more traffic and more engagement and to convert more people into customers. In this blog post, I am going to share 15 top video marketing tools that can help get you started with video marketing.
I’ve tested the Welcome Mat and Smart Bar apps as well but they didn’t produce anywhere near the conversion rate of the List Builder and Scrollbox apps (note: that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t test them on your site… it’s just that they didn’t perform that well on our site with the setup we used so we removed them so not to distract the visitor too much while we figure out new ways to test them).
Groups are specialized list fields that correspond to fields on your signup forms. They let you ask your contacts to self-categorize with preset responses that you provide. For example, a garden shop might ask their contacts what best describes them: a gardener, landscaper, or indoor plant enthusiast. After contacts self-select their interests, you can create internal tags based on group data, or send email campaigns to a segment containing one group, a few groups, or all of them.
SEO and social media are constantly changing. Google tweaks its ranking algorithm hundreds of times each year, and new social media platforms emerge constantly. In order to remain authoritative when it comes to online marketing, you must be passionate about lifelong learning. This means staying on top of industry news, attending conferences and regularly networking with others in the digital marketing space.
Great, inspiring post Sonia. I wrote a plan called ‘getting the new Turner Ink website done’. It’s got 17 points and yep I’m still at number one. But it’s g-r-ad-u-a-ll-y getting done with teeny tiny baby steps. If I hadn’t written the plan and stuck it to the wall I would still be weeping into my soggy cornflakes and would be no further done the line.
When building your online marketing plan, target one specific type of customer, or buyer persona. General information, like whether they are male or female isn’t going to work. You need specifics. Give them names and titles. Put together details that paint a larger picture of who these people are, their concerns, and their biggest pain points with regard to their business needs.
Customer reviews are the "social proof" that encourages people to join in on something. It's one thing for you to tell people to sign up for a campaign, but it's another thing for your happiest customers to say it too. Publish your best reviews from communities like Yelp right to your website. This adds genuine value to your landing pages when people are on the fence about submitting their contact information.
How to videos, tutorials or educational content are fantastic ways to engage with your target market and keep your customers happy. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on expensive equipment – simply shoot a tutorial on your phone and quickly edit and cut using a video marketing tool like Clipchamp Create. If you’re showing software or web content, you can screencast to record what happens on screen.

Traffic is the measure of people visiting your website or sales page. If no one sees what you’re offering, you won’t get any customers. Like a retail store in a busy mall or in the downtown core of a big city, you want lots of people passing by your store. Your website is your store. You want high traffic (lots of people visiting your website), you want consistent traffic (consistency helps with forecasting revenue), and you want targeted traffic (visitors who are in your target market).
