The role of Influencers in Digital Marketing

Introduction

“Stop putting everyone else first. Put yourself first. And go for it.”

Eve Mayer

Who is an influencer?

We have always, as young people growing up, looked up friends, families and some prominent members of the society for inspiration. These people shape and influence our decisions on what we buy or use.

The word influencer was used as far back as the mid-1600. It was used to connote a different meaning than, is presently used. The word influencer was used in reference to the divine mastery or the force and power to change the positions of heavenly beings.

The word influencer had evolved over time, with the meaning upgraded to suit activities of the modern time. It is currently used to mean people with broad fan followings on top social media and content marketing channels like Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube and with the power to affect the purchasing decisions of others because of their knowledge and expertise, influence or relationship with their followers. They can influence their audience to click, read, buy, or subscribe based on their recommendations.

It is important to state that these individuals are not the tools of those who engage them, but are part of those who are now classified as social assets. Brands can then collaborate with these influencers to achieve the organizations marketing objectives.

Influencer Marketing

It is said that consumers have become blind, have developed blindness and deafness and are only willing to see what you make them see, hear or read. Unlike celebrities, influencers are spread all over the internet and can be anyone and from any part of the world. What makes them famous is their huge following and their impact on the web and on social media. The online consumer is fatigue and confused by the share volumes of ads targeted at them in a day.

Influencers have their own niche followership that hold on every word, they put out, regardless of which social media platform they adopt. They are personalities with numerous and devoted following on one or multiple social media platforms, they are viewed as experts within a specific topic. With regular uploads of content within that topic, they earn trust from their followers. Their recommendations serve as a social proof of products or services by their audience, and therefore potential customers, might be interested in. Through influencer marketing, a company is able to portray a human face through its brand.

Influencer marketing is a digital marketing strategy, where brands partner with a social media influencer to spread messages about the brand.  In this relationship, the individual acts as the face of the brand’s product or service to win interest among consumers. Influencer marketing is one of the most efficient means of promotional and sales enhancement.

Influencer marketing has affected the buying and sales behavior of many people and therefore brands that do not join on board early, will soon start losing control over the brand.

Influencer & Affiliate Marketing

Influencer marketing has affected the buying and sales behavior of many people and therefore brands that do not join on board early, will soon start losing control over the brand.

Influencer and affiliate marketing are both strategies or components of of a digital marketing. The two may sound similar but there are differences in them might.

Under affiliate marketing strategy, brands promote their products through individuals on social media and blogs who are called affiliates.

The affiliate marketer’s job is to refer sales to an advertiser’s website and get them to spend money – they know their audience is engaged and ready to buy.

Whilst the Influencer’s role is to help increase brand awareness, they are focused on introducing you to their followers, rather than converting their followers into a sale. Here, brands collaborate with social media influencers to promote a product.

Conclusion

Any influencer strategy is geared towards brand exposure and visibility. And all these are components of what is now called digital Marketing. Influencer marketing is one of the most efficient means of promotional and sales enhancement and this had been known to man since the days of Adam. Since influencers already have their own audiences with some in their millions possibly higher than the clientele of some businesses, it is important that a collaboration is had between the parties to maximize traffic and possible revenue growth for brands.

Great Tips for successful blogging

blogger

Introduction

Been a top-tier blogger is not an easy task. Every successful blogger started somewhere. “Write, write, write,” Henderson says. “Leave your perfectionism at the door and just put your work out there. Get feedback, adjust, and move on.
Without creating and putting your product or service out there, no one will find it. Just start. “Write as often as you possibly can,” says Erin Loechner, design and lifestyle blogger at Design for Mankind. Get in the habit, work on your craft. Discover your voice. It takes great practice and patience. Do it anyway. Sit down in your chair and type it out. Edit later. Publish later. For now, just write.” Find a niche that you know people are interested to read about and write something about that niche. I love digital art marketing , and I write more about that stuff.

Set up your expectations on what you want to get out of it at the end of the day. Are you trying to make it a lifelong business? Is it a channel to express yourself creatively? Or it is just a side hobby? Create an expectation, so that you can be certain what the definition of a successful blog is to you.
Have one goal and measure it. You need to measure your blog’s performance to know you’re on track. It could be anything, like monthly visitors, numbers of comments, how many times your site crashes. But the best metric I found running my blog is the number of email subscribers. Most visitors land on my site once and leave forever. Only people who subscribe to my email list are true readers.
Write blog posts that people are searching for and keen to share. To make your blog successful, you need to watch and monitor how your posts are faring. Yes, you can share on all sites, but the best strategy to grow your blog without burning out is to create evergreen content that people are searching for. Invest some time and effort to do some keywords research, then spend more time and effort to craft a post that is worth sharing.
Talk about it, both online and offline. Unless you’re already a big name, if you don’t talk about it, nobody is going to know about it. (Truth: even if you’re a big name, nobody is going to know about it if you don’t talk about it.)

Proofread your article before pressing the publish button. As tempting as it may be, resist the urge to hastily click “Submit” after you finish with the writing. “Once the blog posts are planned out,” Balkhi of WP Beginner says, “a common mistake is not going back through to take a look at some finer points of the blog post to ensure it reads well for your visitors as well as search engines.”
Prepare your post for publishing by working through a checklist to help you optimize the content, start mobile research with a search engine and readers.

Conclusion

Do not wait for the perfect time. The right time to start your blog is now. Stop waiting to be the perfect writer before you start your dream of becoming a blogger or a writer. Adopt these great tips and start today!

THE IMPORTANCE OF GREAT CONTENT IN AFFILIATE MARKETING

Introduction

“Content is the atomic particle of all marketing”

unkown

Narrow down to who your audiences are, and create content that will bring them back to your blog/site or social media page every time. How do you achieve this, by continuously offering high-quality content for free? The best strategy I recommend is to focus on the creation of great content that naturally incorporates affiliate links in text form. The content would attract visitors from search sites, as long as it remains useful, informative, and educating. You can, while it would indirectly “sell” relevant and useful products or services through simple and non-flashy text links. Provide readers with detailed information written in short, yet sweet paragraphs. Make use of digital assets—videos, GIFs, comparison charts, high-def images, infographics, etc.

It is vital to create and develop a relationship with your audience on a consistent basis, because they know what is currently converting and how their other top affiliates are performing. The better your relationship, the more information you will get from your followers. Content-rich articles get a better ranking and more organic traffic from Google. The number one way to get more affiliate sales is to educate your audience about the products, instead of just offering products. It is important that your readers are able to trust your content. If your readers begin to like you, they will try to support you throughout your affiliate marketing relationship.

Twitter Marketing is like a powerful strategy, where businesses can spread, and you can reach the end customer. Twitter can help you reach out to an incredible number of people in a short time. To use Twitter for marketing activities, you must adopt a strategy of consistency and grow your account over time. And then boom, you have the advantage.

  • A compelling profile
  • Great content
  • The use of videos and images
  • Tweeting at the right time
  • the use of some advanced tactics
  • Drive Traffic to your website

1# Set Your Objectives

Success on any social media platform requires goals that are clear and measurable. How can you track and check for success and progress, if you do not know what the target is?

You want to create SMART goals: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound. So “going viral” doesn’t count. These goals must align with the business objectives and must be an indicator of success. ii. Optimize your Profile

Making the perfect Twitter profile is an essential rule for strategic Twitter marketing. Your Twitter handle is your @niche, name, or your identifier on Twitter. This is important because it helps people locate and find you. The profile represents the brand identity, and this is what people associate you with on social media. It is the beginning of your marketing strategy, and thus important that you are thinking about it!

2# A compelling Profile

Use a profile picture that represents your niche. Use a username that is simple and reflects the name of your business. The name must also help people remember your business.

Write a great bio related to your business or industry niche. Having a great bio is a key element for any Twitter profile. This is your place to communicate to new visitors of your profile exactly what it is that you do. The Twitter bio is indexed by Google. It is the first point of contact for all prospective followers.

It is also important that you include the following in the bio; Location: include your physical location if you have one; you can also use “worldwide” or post a phone number.

Website: your homepage or a landing page where you want to drive customers.

Background image: include a Twitter background image to further display your company. Don’t leave it blank!

Pin some important tweet, Your pinned tweet is the first tweet people see when they visit your profile, so make it an interesting one that represents what’s going on with your brand. You can always change your pinned tweet!

Include keywords in your bio, like #digitalmarketing, #contentmarketing, etc. So, one smartest way to go about creating your Twitter bio is to add relevant keywords and hashtags.

3# Great Content

“Content is where I expect much of the real money will be made on the Internet, just as it was in broadcasting.” Bill Gate

Content marketing is a deliberate effort at giving away valuable information contents in order to retain a client for possible future sales. Study the interests of your followers and provide them with the content they value.

The most important Twitter marketing lesson is that every interaction with your customer matters.

As a result, you should be ready to provide the best customer experience all the time. Any content you put across on Twitter must be informative, interesting, interactive, personal, and promotional. Creative storytelling should always be a part of your advertising strategies. People like validation and reassurance, so take the time to give them that. Let them know you are there. Let them know that you care that they are following you, and you appreciate them.  It will only entice more followers.

Develop a content series, this will help you to create themed content every time.

Examples include:

  • Highlighting your customers
  • Sharing surprising facts about your industry
  • Profiling leaders in your space
  • Providing quick how-to tips in your space
  • Fun tweets

4# Share engaging videos and images

Videos do better when it comes to resolving and providing directions on the internet than written text. Video contents are taking over and ranking first on most search engines. People are three times more likely to engage with Tweets that include visual content. Videos and images are a great way to show your audience your product line or how to use an item you sell. Videos also make the content feel more personal. Images and videos in tweets help to increase your engagement. Today’s audiences are hungry for a visual experience. Include video, images, and GIFs in your Tweets. Visual content catches people’s attention when they’re scrolling through the feed.

This encourages deeper engagement.

5# Tweet at the right time

“People are getting started on their day. They’re taking the morning to get caught up on articles, scroll social media for news, and get their brains ready for work. Later in the afternoon people are heads-down on projects or in meetings, and they have less time to engage.” Nick Martin, Social Engagement Specialist

Tweeting during UK and East Coast office hours drives the best results in terms of clicks and engagement, and on weekends, mornings are still best.

6# Other tactics to use

  • Engage or host Twitter chats
  • Broadcast Live videos
  • Offer customer Service
  • Advertise on Twitter

i. Twitter chats

This is where you engage your followers to get a topic trending. These users discuss a specific topic simultaneously with a common or shared hashtag. It is done by hosting a Twitter chat on a topic relevant to your brand or expertise. Twitter chats usually last an hour and with prepared questions and discussion points. It is a great way to build trust with followers and to show loyalty to community members. A Twitter user usually initiates these chats at a specific time. It is an excellent way to share hashtags related to your niche business or industry. This helps others to learn the latest news and trends in an industry. Twitter Chats promote interactions and engagements on your profile. This gets people talking about your brand. It also creates a more personal experience between your audience and your business.

Initiating and participation in a Twitter chat shows how active your brand is on

ii. Live Videos

Broadcasting live videos is an excellent way to announce your brand. Live-tweeting is a potential way to get a topic trending on Twitter. It is when a user tweets, his/her reactions to an event as it happens. An example is the live-tweeting of a product launch. If you organize an event and want your followers to live tweet about it, then create your own hashtag. You can then share the event with your audiences, so they can spread and follow it.

iii. Advertise on Twitter

Promoted Tweets: This is a way to increase engagement and expand your reach to a wider group of users beyond your follower base. These ads look just like normal tweets, except that they are tagged “promoted” at the bottom, and they appear in the regular Twitter feeds of users who might not be following you yet.

Promoted Trends: A good way to get people talking about your business is through specific hashtag. Promoted Trends appear at the top of the trending topics list in the trends box on Twitter. They, too, are clearly labeled as “promoted,” but otherwise, these ads look exactly like other trending topics, and users can interact with them in the same ways. While Promoted Tweets target specific users, Promoted Trends are visible to all users during their promotion period, including on the Twitter mobile app.

iv. Drive Traffic to your website

Twitter can help you direct traffic to your website — there are a number of ways to include your website’s URL on your profile, as well as add links to your web pages and blogs in your tweets. You can drive traffic to your by;

  • Add your website URL beneath your bio on your Twitter profile.
  • Incorporate links to your website in your tweets.
  • Retweet any content that includes direct links to your website and/ or blogs other people have shared.
  • Embed tweets on your website with a Twitter Timeline.
  • Set up Twitter Ads to drive users to a specific landing page on your site.

Conclusion

Twitter is a great platform to build a strong audience and also make money. With the volume of daily tweets every day, no serious company in this competitive modern environment can ignore this powerful social media tool. Organizations can propel the brand and get it in front of their customers, if only they learn to use the platform more effectively. Books like the TWITTER GOLD and TWITTER STRATEGIES are perfect for individuals and organizations who want to go deep and make the best out of the great platform.

The Ultimate keys to harvesting emails

Introduction

Lead Magnet

A lead magnet is anything that you provide to someone in exchange for their contact information. They are designed to pull in, or “magnetize” more leads. Lead magnets are important, as they show your first opportunity at providing value to your audience. It’s your chance to shine and show people that you know what you are talking about, and show how excited you are to be talking about it. As the term might suggest, lead magnets are used for lead generation. A lead magnet is a great way to show that you care about what you are talking about. It’s a great way to build an audience. In marketing, a lead magnet is a free digital product or download. It encourages website visitors to leave their email addresses. And opt-in to an email list. That’s why lead magnets in marketing are called opt-in bribes and content upgrades. Lead magnets usually target website visitors who are not yet ready to buy any item from the store. If they leave their email addresses, they become secondary conversion goals. Businesses will send targeted marketing materials continuously until they convert into actual buyers. It often starts by creating a relevant free product. Online businesses try to identify different queries that bring them to traffic, and then create a free digital download around that topic. The most popular free digital downloads are e-books, white papers, newsletters, and webinars.
After creating a free product, online stores create forms for website visitors to complete to receive a free product. Businesses take their time in designing and optimizing these forms for a higher chance that visitors will leave their email addresses and opt-in to an email marketing list. Online businesses then place these forms on the most suitable part of the websites. Website visitors who engage the website may click the lead magnet, sign up, and complete the form. Once completed, the free product is immediately sent via email automation. The website’s visitors then become part of an email marketing list that is targeted regularly until they are converted into purchasing a product.
Do not overcomplicate this process. Write a 3-10 pages e-book relating to the niche you are selling, and upload it to your landing page or email platform. This written book become the lead magnet.

CREATIVE FABRICA

For Your lead magnet to be effective, it should: Be free (with sign-up)

  • Make a promise
  • Engage with key points
  • Add great value to your customer
  • Satisfy a need or solve a problem (at least give direction to solving the problem)
  • Appeal to your target audience
  • Provide needed information
  • Have a clear call to action.

The title and cover — the title and cover is what gives your lead magnet its magnetic force. Makes sense, right? Your big chance to showcase the value of your offer comes through;

(i)  How it is called and

(ii) How it’s presented.

Your “book” will indeed be judged by its cover. Don’t think that the rest of your lead magnet can be rubbish. No! You may be able to get away with growing your email list with a lead magnet that makes a big promise, but delivers little in substance. Do not forget, this flimsy strategy will backfire in the long run. You will not only succeed in convincing your lead magnet to push your prospects’ buttons in all the right ways.

The How to: Customers want guidance

So much of what takes place online is essentially a Q&A exercise. Everyone’s looking for answers, instructions, and guidance of some sort to a problem in they are wrestling with. The “how to” is the essential way to fulfil these requests.

CREATIVE FABRICA

How to lubricate your lead machine?

1/ Try making your headline a list

This works the best if your lead magnet contains a list of items, a checklist or a number of solutions to a problem. As we all know, nothing works best at engaging the audience than openly stating what your lead magnet contains. Straight information about your lead magnet’s content. Example

  • How to Decorate Your Home Office;
  • How to solve your company’s high labor turnover issues
  • Twelve Ideas that cost less than $50.

It focuses on a specific problem. There is no mystery about what solutions they’re going to offer. Notice how the specificity adds to the magnetism. There is a promise of actionable and trustworthy information, a reader will be able to start implementing in their business or life right away.

2/ The command

But you could also be super bold and make a powerful statement about your eBook or checklist. One way to do it is by using “the ultimate” formula.

For example:

  • The ULTIMATE guide to digital marketing
  • The ULTIMAT guide to Affiliate Marketing
  • The ULTIMATE guide to making money online

The word “ultimate” is precise and definitive. You could also put it this way;

  • Unrivaled guide
  • Complete guide
  • Really good guide
  • The last guide to _____ you’ll ever need
  • The definitive guide to Affiliate Marketing

3/ Simply tell your readers why they experience a particular problem

This is the “reason why” approach, titles is as simple as listing the main problem your eBook targets. For example:

  • “Why you are not making money on Twitter.”

However, you can also use this formula to write list-based titles, i.e.:

  • “5 Reasons why your calls to action don’t convert”
  • “10 most common reasons for low website conversions.”

4/ Compel customers with action

The command approach to writing a great lead-magnet-title is simple and effective.

These are in the form of a directive or command that starts with a verb examples like: Gas-Up, Optimize, Decorate, and build. Think through other options relevant to your audience.

You may be able to help a potential customer save, grow, expand, accelerate, win, dominate, start, end, control, train, learn. All verbs, all good.

Conclusion

Lead magnet is very important to the harvesting of emails, and emails are the foundation for any effective long term relationship with the customer.

All these and more are included in my e-book, the Ultimate Secrets for making money online and more. The book also guide readers on how to create landing pages, step-by-step guide on how to create and sell e-books, how to effectively make a living and move away from the 9-5 routine job and more.

How to stimulate your brand visibility on Twitter

Introduction

“Products are made in a factory,

but brands are created in the mind.”

-Walter Landor

Twitter is a social media platform where users share their views, and members are known for good content. It is more of a content-based platform, where content is king!

Over 500 million tweets circulate on the platform every day. So with these shared volumes of tweets per day, it is the best platform for the advertisement to raise awareness, for customer service, and perfect for your brand promotion.

The Twitter platform can help brands in the following ways:

❖ Brand promotion
❖ Brand Loyalty
❖ Gain followers
❖ Gain valuable information
❖ build community engagement
❖ Content is King
❖ The handle problems via the direct messaging feature

Brand promotion

With the rise of social media, there are no barriers to reaching the customer. It is thus a great opportunity for Twitter users to establish rapport and create relationships with others. This will enable you to reach out to those audiences within your niche industry. Doing this can be a great opportunity for you to promote your business and
Products.

Brands can use the platform to start relevant conversations, engage with their community, and then build a loyal following.

Brand Royalty

You can prove your knowledge and expertise by the type of content you share. In this way, your audience perceives you as an authority in the industry. By this, the platform allows your audiences to ask questions about your products and services.

Gain followers

Make your business known by tweeting regularly. The more you tweet, the more followers you get on Twitter. Make it easier for people to find you by hosting regular tweet chats. You can also host contests and giveaways, and other interactions with your audience.

Gain valuable information

With the rise of social media, there are no barriers to reaching the customer. It is thus a great opportunity for Twitter users to establish rapport and create relationships with others. This will enable you to reach out to those audiences within your niche industry. Doing this can be a great opportunity for you to promote your business and
Products.

Brands can use the platform to start relevant conversations, engage with their community, and then build a loyal following.

Community Engagements

Using Twitter is a great way to create a community with potential and existing customers. Create your own community of followers by providing them with valuable content. You can achieve this by creating hashtags that define you and your business. Use these hashtags to help your followers locate you among the crowd.
By initiating certain relevant conversations, you get the opportunity to know your customers. You can do this by finding a topic that connects with your customer base and start a chat about it. It can also help you gain recognition in your industry and a stronger relationship. Keep an eye on people that tweet things relevant to what you do! You can easily engage with them, help them, make friends with them, or even sell to them. Millions of people talk about a million different things each day. You can also use tools that will track the keywords you’re interested in and jump into the conversation where possible! This way, you will slowly but steadily get yourself new followers, leads, and clients.

Content is King

Despite being only limited to a few words, the Twitter platform requires content that provides value to users and is informative in the best possible way. It is a formal platform to describe in limited words the required information, which is neither too long nor too short.
Good and well-explained content never goes unnoticed, and the more you explain about your business, the better your audience will find it.

The handle problems via direct messaging (DM)

Direct messaging has evolved over the years, especially for brands. This is major for troubleshooting your customers’ issues and handling their problems. So the way you interact with them is important. It’s smart to handle individual customer complaints and issues through DMs for a couple of reasons. For one thing, you don’t want other users to see the problem and think less of your company. Also, there is no character limit on DMs, which gives you the freedom to help customers. By default, only users you follow can send you DMs. You can set up your Twitter account to receive messages from anyone. Even though you can make it easier for all customers to contact you. Go to Privacy Settings and enable “receive direct messages from anyone.”

This is a chapter in my latest e-book titled The Twitter Strategy. This book covers all strategies needed to win on Twitter. It went much deeper into how to get your brand noticed, make money on the Twitter platform, the best strategies to get the audience’s attention, and some tips that have been hidden for some time now. Get it for as little as $3.00!

I can also recommend an excellent e-book, as the Twitter gold, for anyone who wants to take the Twitter platform to a much higher level.

Conclusion

Twitter remains one of the best digital marketing mediums available out there for advertisement promotion, customer service, and perfect for your brand to be noticed out there.

How an excellent digital marketing strategy can impact your brand

Introduction

There is a popular conception out there that engaging in social media marketing activities means digital marketing. No! Social media marketing is a subset or just an aspect of digital marketing. It is only one channel of online marketing. These two concepts have been misunderstood and sometimes used interchangeably, probably due to their shared online nature, but the two as said above are never ever the same.

Some of the links in this article are for affiliates

Social Media Marketing

ActiveCampaign was built on the idea that an excellent customer experience must go beyond the traditional marketing touchpoints, like email. Delivering a personalized, high-touch experience is easy in the very beginning, but as a business grows— adding channels, additional teams, locations, customer segments, etc.— the complexity of managing relationships is too much, and that personalized connection doesn’t scale (this is why we’ve all received sales emails for products we already own, been asked to review a product we returned or had disjointed experiences across success reps while trying to resolve a support ticket, etc.) This is why email marketing, marketing automation, service and support tools, and CRMs end up wasting time for organizations instead of supporting their growth.
