Content Marketing is the marketing involves the creation and sharing of media, publishing, and distribution of content in order to inspire prospects, gain customer loyalty, and acquire customers. Content marketing is not about selling, rather on simply communicating with customers and prospects. It is a strategic marketing approach focused on creating and distributing valuable, relevant, and consistent content to attract and retain a clearly-defined audience — and, ultimately, to drive profitable customer action. The essence of this content strategy is the belief that if  businesses deliver consistent, ongoing valuable information to buyers, they ultimately reward them with their business and loyalty.

Powerful Social Media Marketing Nurturing Gets You More Results

A noticeable change in social media marketing is the overuse of automation tools like Hootsuite or SocialOoomph. Businesses have turned social media automation into something that seems to resemble broadcast radio. Posting large volumes of tweets and updates happen fast with automation tools. Now imagine every business, regardless of their industry, doing the exact same thing. Automated postings have inundated social communities to a point that no one is listening anymore. Unfortunately, businesses have overused social media automation tools to be the end of their marketing efforts. They are seeking efficient (not necessarily effective) ways of getting their message out, in a fast manner, and do so at a low cost. Low cost to these businesses includes low to no labor. Of course, these quick tactics are not effective and do more harm than good. The question we have to ask ourselves is how effective is broadcasting your message in bulk? How effective is it to wait for people to come to you? With every business broadcasting to the social communities, how likely is it for someone to listen on the other end? It is more likely people have become numb to the broadcasts and do not even recognize there [...]

Social Media Advertising Expenses Can Be Reduced By Targeted Tagging

  Social media marketing is continually becoming competitive. Pushing your updates, comments, or posts out to your connections is becoming less valuable. Why? Well, your connections are being inundated by others in their network bombarding them with other information. Whether it’s your blog articles, infographics or simply sharing a page on your website, your update, post or comments need to be found and seen in social communities. Why else are you spending time in social media marketing? The difficulty within social communities is the amount of content being published every day. Your content is becoming increasingly harder to find or even be noticed. Whether you are telling people what you're doing (Twitter) or confirming where you are (Foursquare) or showing people what you're doing (YouTube), you are spending time raising the awareness of your business. That time has to ultimately have a return on investment. If you're in the media department the first response would be to spend money sponsoring posts by advertising within the various social communities. For anyone in the marketing department following strategic processes or in non-media communications, you might be wondering what your options are besides advertising? Try tagging! Social Media Influencers Let's define an influencer, [...]

Home Care Services Applaud Mothers and Fathers

Home care or elderly care services are often provided by close family members such as siblings, children, parents and spouses. Whether you are offering home care for your mother or father or they are caring for you, family is always somewhere you can turn for love and support. Today, sons and daughters celebrate their mothers and fathers in all kinds of ways. Here are a few ideas to celebrate mom and pop throughout the year: Give the gift of a good meal. If your mom and dad live nearby, take them out to brunch or dinner. If they prefer to stay at home, or have difficulty going out for a dinner, make them a special meal while they relax. Say thank you. If your parents live far away, give them a call to let them know how much you appreciate them or even go see them for a weekend visit. Tell your parents what they mean to you. Write your own card to give to your dad or mom. Using your own words is more personal and meaningful than a store-bought one, and you can customize it to tell him or her just how important they are to you. One [...]
