Epiphanies

Reading “You Are A Badass” by Jen Sincero, I came across this gem.

Marketing Machine 2: Your Website

The second installment in my Social Media Marketing Series.

To build durable customer relationships, you need your own website.

 

All the pieces of online marketing–the ability to track visitors, test ideas, measure results, and build a client base-

-revolve around your website. This is the heart of the Marketing Machine. Every service or tool you use feed into your website, because this is where you build durable, recurring customer relationships. Social media platforms may be perfectly willing to sell you market-segmented ads, but you don’t own it–you’re just renting space in their shop. The connections and relationships they sell you are transitory and variable, depending on how they choose to promote your posts (or not).

Marketing Machine 1: Social Media That Works

This is the first in a Social Media Marketing series I’m writing (in coordination with the Workshop I’m running at the BIC, every third Thursday through the new year).

An Automatic Conversion Machine

Here is my inaugural social media marketing article. I think I’ll have a lot more to say about this; I really think small businesses and entrepreneurs could get a lot more out of social media if they understood how it connected to the success of their website and their marketing funnels.

An Automatic Conversion Machine

Content management systems like WordPress and Joomla make it easy to start a blog to educate and engage customers and build your brand. There are so many good reasons to have a blog, and yet the number of abandoned company blogs suggests people aren’t getting enough value out of them. A company blog is like home fitness equipment: it can be a game-changer for those with time, commitment and a solid plan. But they can also seem like an expensive waste of effort that’s soon abandoned. Unless you have clear g

I’ve got a new client

I’ve got my first client here in Fall River; after my big move last November I’m back on the horse! Look for my posts there regularly.

Company News: New Project Manager

Hi, I’m Annie Colbert, and I’ve been making technology simple for customers since AOL chat rooms were cool. In late 2016, my family moved to the East Coast from Portland, OR. After getting settled, I attended an event at the Business Innovation Center in Fall River, met Chris Nielsen, and became a new Content Developer and Project Manager for CNP Integrations in July.

So how did I get so jazzed about the art of communicating clients’ messages to customers?…

Nomad World Map: Blog Your Travels | ClarkWP WordPress Magazine

Here’s a little review I wrote over at the ClarkWP Mag on a nifty little plugin for globe-trotters to blog their travels.

…A typical way all the features might be put to use would be to plan the route of an upcoming trip. Then, as content is written about these locations, they can be either edited to be associated with posts rather than just dates, and new locations with posts can be added…
