Books. Like movies, people often think of books as selling themselves, but savvy marketers don’t sell books just to sell books, they sell books as marketing tools. Michael Port’s sales manual Book Yourself Solid is a great read for entrepreneurs, salespeople, and marketers, and while I’m sure Port enjoys selling his book, the book is a tool for driving customers to his coaching and speaking services. Although with self-publishing it’s easier than ever to publish a book, there is still the perception that it’s difficult and that only reputable professionals can publish a business book. Publish your own, and even if people don’t read it you can still use it as a form of content marketing every time you’re introduced as “Author of…”
Er is een klein verband gevonden tussen de positie in Google en het gebruiken van een zoekwoord in de ‘title tag’. We hadden een groter verband verwacht, maar misschien komt dit doordat Google de switch aan het maken is naar semantische zoekresultaten. Oftewel, Google geeft relevante pagina’s weer, ongeacht het feit dat het zoekwoord hierin terugkomt. Dit is mogelijk doordat Google steeds beter begrijpt wat er in een artikel/ in de content staat (hier volgt later nog een uitgebreid artikel over op deze website).
Understanding Mobiles: Understanding mobile devices is a significant aspect of digital marketing because smartphones and tablets are now responsible for 64% of the time US consumers are online (Whiteside, 2016).[42] Apps provide a big opportunity as well as challenge for the marketers because firstly the app needs to be downloaded and secondly the person needs to actually use it. This may be difficult as ‘half the time spent on smartphone apps occurs on the individuals single most used app, and almost 85% of their time on the top four rated apps’ (Whiteside, 2016).[42] Mobile advertising can assist in achieving a variety of commercial objectives and it is effective due to taking over the entire screen, and voice or status is likely to be considered highly; although the message must not be seen or thought of as intrusive (Whiteside, 2016).[42] Disadvantages of digital media used on mobile devices also include limited creative capabilities, and reach. Although there are many positive aspects including the users entitlement to select product information, digital media creating a flexible message platform and there is potential for direct selling (Belch & Belch, 2012).[44]
Vroeger maakte ik veelvuldig gebruik van Wordtracker. Zonet heb ik wederom deze tool getest, maar alom teleurstelling. De gratis versie is nog steeds beschikbaar. Echter na registratie kan je deze maar toepassen voor 20 trefwoorden. Verbazingwekkend is dat ik op trefwoorden als content management 0 resultaten krijg. En als ik bijvoorbeeld het trefwoord webdesign intype (een beetje een dooddoener trefwoord) ook dan krijg ik 0 resultaten. Een slechte demonstratie van een product. Uiteraard kan dit een tijdelijk probleem zijn, dus het is aan te raden om het te blijven proberen.

Een website is pas echt succesvol als deze vindbaar is en aansluit bij de verwachtingen van de doelgroep. Dit wordt bereikt door de content en dit is dan ook een van de belangrijkste kenmerken waarop Google websites indexeert. Content is overigens meer dan tekst alleen. Ook afbeeldingen, tools, video’s en ga zo nog maar even door wordt als content gezien. In de stap ‘content analyse’ moet u eerst in beeld gaan brengen op welke zoektermen uw doelgroep zoekt. Maar ook op bij welke woorden en termen de meeste potentie ligt. Natuurlijk wilt u op nummer 1 staan op het belangrijkste zoekwoord, maar dat willen al uw concurrenten ook. Het is daarom vooral belangrijk om de zoekwoorden te bepalen waar in potentie veel resultaat ligt en waar concurrentie steken laat vallen. Misschien minder volume, maar u realiseert dan wel een beter resultaat. Nogmaals: kwaliteit gaat boven kwantiteit.

The development of digital marketing is inseparable from technology development. One of the key points in the start of was in 1971, where Ray Tomlinson sent the very first email and his technology set the platform to allow people to send and receive files through different machines [8]. However, the more recognisable period as being the start of Digital Marketing is 1990 as this was where the Archie search engine was created as an index for FTP sites. In the 1980s, the storage capacity of computer was already big enough to store huge volumes of customer information. Companies started choosing online techniques, such as database marketing, rather than limited list broker.[9] This kind of databases allowed companies to track customers' information more effectively, thus transforming the relationship between buyer and seller. However, the manual process was not so efficient.
