The unfortunate mistake made Thursday that cost New Media Strategies their contract with Chrysler should be viewed as an opportunity to make a tremendous step forward in their social media marketing.

    [Blog] What Is True Link Building?
    That could include press releases, social media, some types of guest blogging, certain link requests, and even some traditional types of link building exercises.

Particularly important was the meta keyword tag. It was not unusual to visit a website, view source, and see hundreds of keywords stuffed into the meta tags that didn’t even appear on the page. Google showed up on the scene in 1998 and suddenly back links became the most important thing. Webmasters scrambled to get the best links from the best websites.

    In other words, if you write a blog post and find out three days later that it has attracted thousands of unsolicited links, there’s your great content. Great content is everyone’s goal. That is, everyone who attempts to market their business, product, or service online. But why is great content so important? Can’t you do the same thing with mediocre content? That seems like a silly question, but there is a lot of mediocre content on the Internet. And a lot of bad content. After all, not all content can be great. It’s content that gets attention without effort.

    Many marketing blogs suggest starting out by asking an open-ended question— much like a certain fastidious standup. For example, if you’re writing a blog for a health insurance company, and you know that a pain point for customers is that they’re confused about what medications are covered, a blog post about how to find out whether a medication is covered under their insurance addresses that pain point and recognizes those customers, without ever stating the goal outright. That’s not too far from what marketers do when they identify a pain point. Image: Flickr
