I've done freelance design/consultation for years, and it is something I really enjoyed.Helping companies figure out their marketing, website, and branding strategy is fun - and when it's successful we all win!Starting this year, I really want to start helping minority-owned businesses get started.This would just be a side-hustle since I have a full-time job, but I'm wondering how I can make this most productive for all parties.Is doing this pro-bono, one client at a time, smart?Or in the long run would it be better to charge a set fee?
I started marketing for fun two years ago.During that time, I began to love social media marketing especially instagram .I contacted some companies and worked for them for free to build a portfolio.I've given them thousands and thousands of followers by knowing how to target.Now that I think I'm good enough should I start charging them?Should I charge other companies?
Social media giant's latest launch attempts to edge out job listing sites Anything you can do, I can do better… Or such is the hope inside the walled-garden for Facebook, which is, yet again, attempting to edge out competition by creating similar functions to its competitors.The social media giant took a direct swipe at LinkedIn, Glassdoor, and other job listing sites, with the launch of a platform for US businesses to post open job listings natively to their pages and in the News Feed.This method of copying other brands' greatest assets is nothing new for Facebook.The social media company has a long-standing tradition of using this tactic to edge out close competition.

I've recently started a role at a digital agency as a media buyer/planner focusing on display and social ad buys.I have over 5 years agency experience but this is the first role where I was asked to set 2-3 goals for employee appraisal/review.This seems to be more common at bigger agencies.Just curious what other digital media buyers/marketers have set for their goals...

First off I'm brand new to affiliate marketing and have been doing extensive research on this topic for only about two weeks nowI'm curious about this "market"I've come across what seems the majority of people telling their story of affiliate marketing success but their main product is actually a how to affiliate marketing course...Is this how the industry works, affiliate market a course to affiliate market and on and on?
There is no digital marketing world.There is a fear, inside corporate walls, of a unified marketing budget.And a counter movement to keep online and offline disjointed, myopic, but better funded and in total control of their turf.More like a comical backwater banana republic.To talk about digital as some kind of separate entity is to not understand it.PepsiCo exec Mr. Jakeman, Digital Marketing is the most ridiculous term I ve ever heard
Back in the day, when our conversion optimization agency focused on athletic and outdoor brands, business owners would frequently come to us with an urgent request.Since brand differentiation is one of the fundamentals of strategic marketing, that put us in a tough spot.Our job is to help clients, not hurt them.Do you speak your piece and take the job anyway?Answering these questions led us to what may be marketing s best-kept secret -- something right in front of us all the time, but not visible until we focused on it.Our job switched from trying to prevent one client from wanting to mimic another client s success to helping each of them realize something crucial -- their insights were better than Nike s!
I recently watched the HBO special about Warren Buffet where he praises Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People".Warren Buffet took Carnegie s course at age 20 and described it as a moment that "changed my life".In this summary, you will find some of the book's key lessons.
According to a report on Shopify, global retail ecommerce sales are projected to grow to $3.4 trillion U.S. by 2019.Unfortunately, only a small percentage of internet marketers seem to be taking advantage.Related: Native Advertising, a Boon for the Media, Can Help You Cut Through the NoiseNative advertising is any paid content that is made to match the form of the platform it appears on without being disruptive.Native advertising is less obvious.Instead, it usually comes across as sponsored posts on social media platforms and other sites, as promoted tweets, feature videos on Youtube, suggested reading/viewing and more.
When was the last time you asked someone outside your team for a specific project idea?When our German team asked themselves this recent, they didn t have an answer.With all the day-to-day stuff it s easy to spend our time in what could be called a team bubble , assuming we as a team are the only ones who need to come up with brilliant ideas for the area we work in.But with a business of over 900 people, what was the best way to gather ideas from others?
I've been building an audience through targeted Facebook ads over the past few months, and have recently noticed that only about 1/4th of the paid traffic recently has been illegitimate either accidental or performed by a robot or spammer .As you'll see above, based on just the last 2 weeks, I've paid about $150 for three legitimate clicks.The rest of them are illegitimate but I'm still paying for them according to Facebook .This is complete bullshit and affects me and others who use the platform in more ways than one:I can't effectively retarget to this audience because I know most of them are either bots or spammers.I can't use this audience to generate a lookalike because they're not the kinds of people I want to target.
I am spearheading a campaign for an up and coming music recording studio and I need help brainstorming some ideas for a co-marketing campaign with a local record store.The music studio I represent provides mixing, mastering and production services.We also have digital marketing and music promotion services available for up and coming musicians.There is a small vinyl record shop next to the music venue I work at.I want to approach them with marketing campaign that would benefit them and the studio I work at.Besides asking them if I can hang some posters in the window, what other marketing ideas could I approach them with that would actually get my studio , and their store, more exposure?
Add this to your filtering mechanism when listening to prospects, managing internal buying committee, dealing with sales objections, handling upset employees, the list goes on.It doesn t apply everywhere and every time.But to assume that what you re hearing is based on logic and rational thought alone is short-sighted.When your sales team pushes back, it might be because they don t understand.Change could mean less commissions, which means less money.When your employees or peers get defensive, they might be thinking about job security.

Hey guys - I was the CMO of a unicorn for five years then left to launch a VR startup.So VR marketing is always on my mind.I just wrote an article for UploadVR about the Brand to Brain Connection that I think VR is going to enable.After interviewing lots of agencies about their VR efforts, it's clear that everyone thinks VR is the future of marketing.While today most branded VR is stunt driven - they have to get their impressions from press coverage instead of people actually experiencing - that is going to change soon.Before I left Quest I did a big VR event, bringing about 2,000 through a VR experience.
