Learn how I got hundreds of thousands of Facebook video views in 48 hours
I was thinking about strategies to increase traffic to my new blog site, BrutusReport.com. I'm not new to blogging, marketing, promotions, and E-commerce. At one time, i wrote blogs for an online marketing company. I have produced over 200 articles on different topics, such as wellness, home decorating, lifestyles, tips for city living, and beyond. It was a wonderful experience to research and write about different subjects. A well known Indian writer once said he didn't write about familiar topics, but those he wanted to learn more about (Chitthal).
Taking his advice to heart, I started creating written works to entertain and draw readers in. This leads to what I'm going to say about getting 150,000 views of my Facebook video in 48 hours. I have only five thousand followers on my Facebook page. And I didn't want to spend a dime on the video.
From long, sentimental posts to black and white photographs from childhood... let's face it, when it comes to mothers, all of Facebook is incredibly "thankful" for all that mothers do each and every day to make our lives so much sweeter.
In addition to all those heartfelt sentiments that were shared last Sunday, to kick off Mother's Day weekend, the social site brought back the purple flower reaction which allowed you to respond to posts with a reaction of "thankfulness"... instead of a simple Like.
SEO Costs can be broken out into two categories, things you can do now and get closure and things that go on for some period of time longer.
The first category is fairly cut and dry: identify what the problem is, work on fixing it, then move to the next problem. Simple as that. Like a puzzle, you put a piece down and search for the next piece.
The second category is a bit more complex. Here's where a significant chunk of digital marketing takes place. This is the ongoing process that never really ends. There are always more keywords that need to be optimized, there is always additional content that needs to be published, there's always additional socializing that needs to be done, links that need be found and data analysis is a never ending task.
Don't short-circuit your strategy by putting all your eggs into the short-term cost. You need a long-term strategy that will reap rewards for perpetuity. Look at it as an office space which requires ongoing expenses and maintenance.
Think about these costs as some percentage of every dollar you earn, as if you were putting it toward rent. This cost requires a line in the budget. Costs can always be reduced on one category and increased for the other, but a balance needs to be struck and revisited regularly.
Ahead of its time in the unlimited music streaming industry, Omnifone briefly enjoyed some high profile success in the early 2000s, but recently filed for bankruptcy (August 2016).
Now, TechCrunch has revealed that Apple has picked up some of Omnifone's assets, including some 16 members of staff, and probably some technology to go with it.
A quick analysis of the employee's LinkedIn profiles shows that they have changed employers to Apple, and are working in various roles, including some in iTunes and app development.
While Apple has a history of acquiring technology companies for their assets, this is not a standard acquisition following their usual processes. However, Omnifone does possess a number of patents which might be of interest to Apple, which fuelled speculation that they might have bought out the company for 10 million.
Recent studies of Twitter user behavior have indicated that business owners who respond to tweets in a timely manner will see improvements in their customer loyalty over time. Many common Twitter conversations revolve around a negative experience with a company when the business owner answers and wants to make amends. The question is whether this is an effective use of the company's time.
According to current research from both Twitter and Applied Marketing Research, responding to complaints is a positive way to build better customer rapport and correct problems. When a customer receives a response to a complaint, they're up to 20 percent more likely to spend more on a product or service from the same business. They're also up to 44 percent more likely to recommend the business to their friends and family.
