Market Your Way To the Top by Entrepreneur.com
Entrepreneur.com: What is marketing?
Mark Stevens: Marketing is the most misunderstood work in business; ask 100 people what marketing is, and you’ll get 100 different answers.
It’s true, everyone thinks of marketing in a different way, but not to be cocky or anything but honestly I believe the way I approach marketing is simple , easy and most of all, very very effective. It takes time, no doubt about that, but it works out great in the end.
That article covers alot of aspects of marketing specially for people that don’t know where to start or how to approach that topic, it’s definitely a good read.
In my opinion everyone has their own unique way of marketing or as I say it Commercial and Social Marketing 😀
Explaining your production process to your clients by FreelanceSwitch
For me, this is the funnest part of making a business, actually telling your customers how good the product/service actually is, make it sound interesting, exciting and unique most of all. If you leave an impression of a unique product/service then you’ll start a whole chain reaction of viral independent potential customers spreading the word about you.
Do you do affiliate marketing on your blog? by ProBlogger
I say NO to aff marketing on blogs, it defeats the whole purpose of a blog, I mean you’re supposed to have a blog to spread information, news, articles…etc not turn it into a sales blog where people are always confused if it’s a tip/article or just a sales pitch, it decreases trust between you and your readers, stay away from this at all costs (unless you’re being paid a shit load of money upfront that is)
Are 404 Pages Always Bad for SEO? by SEOmoz
In all my years of SEO (personal and commercial) I have never gave any sort of importance to 404s, honestly I think if you optimize even the crapiest things on your site it starts looking like a cheap factory settings knock off and you start losting your position in SERPs and other traffic areas. Keeping it simple the ol’ fashion way is much easier and better as well.
In one article you see that people actually do want wiki out of the picture but it’s links are worth alot more then you can imagine, it get’s you a shit load of relevancy points, and the fact that wiki calls itself a web encyclopedia and all that, we all know its a non-profit organization but if you read the next article you’ll see wiki making a move to a place where it could become profitable, the move to take over google news is a bit low in my opinion, if you can get even 20% of google news to go to your site around the clock thats it, you’ve made it now you can make serious money, but I’m sure wiki isn’t doing that for the money (sarcasm)
What Does $14 Million Worth of PageRank Look Like? by SEOBook
CircuitCity.com is back after Systemax purchased the brand and domain at bankruptcy auction for $14 million. Systemax also owns TigerDirect.com and acquired CompUSA last year. CircuitCity.com was quickly relaunched last week to capitalize on the remaining brand strength and traffic to the website.
That right there is the story of the day for me, now that’s what I call a good investment, even if they can’t get the stores open for offline sales they can still make a really good amount just through online sales. Kudos to Systemax.
