Finally, when creating articles for guest posts or article marketing, ensure that each article is only published in the one place. Having an online presence is very different to an offline one. Offline, you can publish a catalog and no one really cares if some descriptions are very similar if not identical (apart from name or color references). Online, the opposite is true. If you have products that have identical or near identical descriptions, then you could find that some of that content never appears in search results. The reason? It’s not just on your main website either.

Jeffrey Henning wrote about the etiquette of eavesdropping and presented a webinar on consumer attitudes towards social media market research. Marketing WOMMA takes strong positions on its members' marketing activities, but the closest it comes to mentioning monitoring or research is when it commits to "promote an environment of trust between the consumer and marketer."

This video is f rom Jay Today is my near-daily 3-minute video where I talk about social media, content marketing, business and life. You can’t handle the truth! That’s what a lot of brands think when they have to share news with their customers. But guess what brands? When you’ve got something to say to your customers and instead of telling them the truth you wrap it up in this enormous layer of BS, guess what? You look stupid, and your customers trust you less, not more. I had an amazing experience last night checking in at the Four Seasons Boston. Understand?”

Seth Godin, a veteran Internet marketer and one of the first business bloggers, is well known for his short bursts of blog content. They’re only about 200-300 words each, if that.

Are longer blog posts better than shorter ones? In general, more content is better than less. In most cases. In fact, Google has recently penalized content pages for not having enough content on them.

[Marketing] Why Failure is an Option
Failure IS an option, so that shouldn't stop ideas being progressed it should just strengthen the filtering process, the need to understand the market and focus on superb execution. Failure is often said not to be an option - Why? First of all that is not true, and secondly failure does not have to be bad - as Dad used to say, it is a success in finding out that didn't work! Seriously this kind of 'no failure' mindset can never work for a successful business, because if failure is not an option then you will always take the risk- free option which means less innovation, less creativity.
