Everyone knows that Search Engine Optimization is critical to any digital marketing strategy, but what some people forget is that search rankings don’t improve by simply creating general content and blogging freely. If you want to excel in the SERP, you’ll need to combine SEO with a strategic content marketing plan. Once you execute on that plan, you’ll want to ensure you properly measure and track the results of your efforts in order to understand what’s working and what’s not. So, how do you do that?
Throughout my school career, I must have taken about a dozen quizzes, tests, and assessments providing information on how I personally learn best. In fact, this topic fascinated me so much, I actually completed my college senior thesis on visual-spatial learning. But why is it so important to know how you learn best? Or have some insight into how your colleagues, clients, family, or friends learn? Your understanding of how you learn can impact your efficiency, motivation, attention span, memory, and more. It can also heavily affect the way you speak, read, and write throughout your personal and professional life.
You did it! You planned an awesome webinar on something you’re passionate about. So, how do you get the word out there and get people to show up to see all the great things you have to say? You could try to just wait it out and hope people will find it organically, but chances are, that probably won’t work all that well.
Throughout my almost 5 years here at IMPACT, I’ve seen a lot of (positive) change. A team of 15 is now over 60. A small office has become a big one. We’ve gone from having everyone work from our Wallingford location to now having more people working from their homes across the country. And, I’ve made my way from an intern to an account supervisor, managing a team of awesome account executives & coordinators -- 2 of which are remote. (Shoutout to Iris, Dakota, & Amanda!)
If you’re reading this post, chances are you have an Instagram account. Considering there are 800 million monthly active users (and 500 million daily active users), I could also assume you’re regularly engaging with posts, uploading your own images, and communicating with other users, right? Wouldn't it be awesome is consumers did the same with your brand on Instagram?
How great would it be if every single one of your first-time customers kept coming back for more? Wouldn't it be even better if they loved your company so much that they told all of their friends about you?
As a fellow marketer, I’m sure you can agree with me that it’s important to have the right data and information in order to do our jobs, right? In fact, having access to the right data is important for any job. However, having data simply isn’t enough; it has to be relevant to your company and the goals you’re trying to achieve. In fact, can you even set SMART goals without having good data?
As we get ready to say goodbye to 2017, I can't help but reflect on everything I've experienced in the past 12 months -- especially from an IMPACT perspective. Attending CXL, winning the HubSpot Partner of the Year Award, meeting my new team members (who quickly became best friends), being able to continue to work with clients I've known for years, as well as beginning to work with new ones...the list goes on. And with this reflection of the past comes the curiosity of what's next to come. What does 2018 have in store for my career?
