The idea of using Snapchat to advertise was more a piece of marketing to get followers and develop a continual interest in your business.

It isn’t always you or your team’s fault when your brand gets bad exposure. No sighs of relief should be breathed yet, though. Facebook (as usual) is to blame. Well, actually it is most display networks, but we are focused on Facebook here. The past year or two, brands started to notice Google was allowing any old brand’s ads to run alongside extremist videos as well as on radical news sites. Read More
Retail makes up the largest category of internet ad spending, representing about 21 percent of total revenues, or roughly $15 billion annually. Contrary to popular belief, people still prefer to shop in stores instead of online, over 90 percent of consumer retail happens in the store. That’s trillions of dollars spent in the real world versus $294 billion online. That’s why the development of cost-per-(store)-visit ad models (CPV) are possibly very significant. Read More

With the Internet serving as a helpful tool for researching merchandise, customers don’t rely on salespeople for knowledge as much as they used to in the past. They walk into a store with an idea in mind and walk out without interacting with the store’s employees for more than a couple of minutes.

Forget Facebook’s new Reactions. That’s not the biggest change in online marketing this week by a long shot.
Just when you think you know Google, the search engine giant decides to change up how it displays results.
We blogged about the change to the local listing pack — formerly known as the 7-pack — back when it was rolled out in August. Now, Google has given itself another makeover, creating a sleeker Search Engine Results Page (SERP) with some notable change-ups.[bctt tweet=”See how Google’s #SERP changes impact your #SEO & #onlinemarketing efforts!”]
Here’s what you should know about Google’s new look — and its implications for your online marketing efforts.
Thinking of starting your own blog, but worried the platform you choose might go the way of the dinosaurs? Or are you concerned that no one will read your content if it’s placed on your own website?
Exactly where to start your blog is a big decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly or made hastily. With so many choices — integrating a blog on your own site, using an external blogging platform, or using new long-form options in social media — it’s key to understand and weigh all the benefits and drawbacks.

That’s where SEO comes in.
