  • Social Networks Generate Least Loyalty In 2014 Brand Keys Survey Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and the other major social networks might want to consider this a warning: Social networks generated the lowest loyalty scores in the 18th annual Brand Keys Customer Loyalty Engagement Index (CLEI). This year’s study (which can be requested here) looked at consumer relationships with 555 brands across 64 categories — ranging from […]
  • Beyond SEM: When You’ve Maxed Your Search Ads, What’s Next? Advertisers frequently tell me, “If you can hit my CPA target, my SEM budget is unlimited!” This is great in theory but often limited in practice — at some point, there simply are no more new keywords, or landing page tweaks, or ad text tests that can increase an advertiser’s SEM spend. Two years ago, […]
  • Infographic: How Location-Based Marketing Delivers Ads To In-Store Shoppers Imagine a shopper in a store getting a coupon delivered to their phone for a product, because a marketer knows they’re actually shopping.

  • With Content Marketing, Link Building is Obsolete… Right? It seems that every day a new blog post is published claiming that link building is dead. It makes for a great headline, but it’s just not true. In fact, it’s very much alive, and will be for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately, the content marketing purists who preach the “build it and they will come” […]
  • Get To Know: The CMO For Tumbleweed Tiny House Company Debby Richman serves as Chief Marketing Officer for the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company. Founded in 1999 when it mounted its first tiny home to a trailer, Tumbleweed Tiny House Company designs and builds small, archetypal houses-to-go, ranging from 117 to 172-square feet. Along with delivering houses-to-go, Richman’s company also offers workshops, building plans, educational materials […]
  • The Viral Rise & Fall Of Flappy Bird Flappy Bird, the maddening free app that seemed to appeared out of nowhere two weeks ago, is a great lesson on how a simple “Share” button may help an app go viral or at least continue to generate buzz. And, on the eve of Flappy Bird going away forever, it also demonstrates how novelty can […]
  • Google France Home Page Now Carries Privacy Violation Notice, As Ordered As expected, the home page of Google France now carries a notification to users that Google was fined for privacy violations relating to the “unified” privacy policy change it made in 2012. A required link to the ruling against it might also be slowing the site of the French privacy agency. Notice Required For 2 […]
  • Esurance Awarded Its $1.5 Million Prize: What’s Next & Will The 200,000 New Twitter Followers Stay It was a risky move waiting until the Super Bowl had ended to advertise the start of a giant $1.5 million Twitter sweepstakes, a risk exacerbated by the fact that the game was a rout.
