    There's been a lot of analysis lately, and I'm not one who's stays satisfied with established processes for too long. In search of something to speed myself forward, I rediscovered another mainstay from the SEO's toolbox: the RankQuest Toolbar.

    From RankQuest:

    The Rankquest SEO Toolbar provides you quick access to more than 30 intuitive SEO tools. Once you download and install the SEO Toolbar you are only one or two clicks away from carrying out most of your day to day SEO operations. Alexa Rank* and Page Rank provided by Alexa and Google respectively ensures the popularity of the site.

    I trust SEO for Firefox for my popularity metrics, but the RankQuest Toolbar serves incredibly well for analyzing on-page statistics such as keyword density, HTML validation, and meta-tag focus.

  • Who Cares About You?

    Seriously – who cares? That’s not meant to be disrespectful by any means, but think about it for a moment. Do you know who your customers are? How old are they? Where do they come from? What are their budgets like? What are their interests? What are the most effective mediums to reach them? Are the end users the same as the decision makers?

    There are countless questions to ask, but all infinitely important because without them, YOU might be the reason money is walking out the door. You may think three-pepper ice cream parlours are the next big thing, but unless there’s a market for it, the long-sought marriage of hot and cold will have to wait a little longer.

    So, step away from your computer, sit down in a quiet spot, close your eyes, and think about your audience. If you were one of them, would you buy your service after seeing your website? Honestly? You may be seeing throngs of traffic, but if your message isn't the one your customers want to hear, sales aren't going to come.

    If this sounds like you, talk to us. We’ll get you on the right track and help you narrow your message down.

  • Why Internet Marketing Beats Traditional Marketing Every Time

    Traditional marketers are amazing. They come up with these massive plans that span months of preparation with multi-million dollar budgets to promote to people who aren’t even listening. They set up 1-800 numbers to capture leads, and send out dozens (if not hundreds) of promotional variations to keep tabs on what’s working and where. They are some of the brightest, most strategic people alive, but a few continue to cling to methods of old; they turn their heads at Internet marketing because they think it’s not tangible.

    As a terrestrial marketer by training, I have a truth I must share with my brethren: Internet marketing is more measurable than any real-world medium out there.

    When you look at rate cards, you see “Est. Readership”. Pass-along, non-subscription or other views are unaccounted for. So how can you be sure? Can you really measure how many times people pass by a billboard? How about look at it, or how many of those people convert? How accurate is your sample considering it’s a sample? Unless you’re capturing your entire audience, there’s always room for deviation. When performing variant testing, you bring people into a simulated environment which automatically skews results, so is it really going to work when it’s time to lay down the marketing budget and let the campaign fly? You can’t ever be 100% sure. There is always going to be some data that is tainted or slips through the collection process.

    When you look at metrics for online campaigns, you can find numbers all the way down to the single digits. You can capture how people found your website, how long they spent on it, which areas they visited, and which ones of them converted. Variant testing can be done inconspicuously, without any prior agreement necessary. Best of all, everyone who has contact with you can be tracked instantaneously; though emphasis lies on measuring successes, you can also capture failures and make immediate changes to your campaign.

    Not everyone is going to be on the Internet, but when you think about maximizing return on investment, especially in today’s tight-wallet economy, it doesn’t make sense not to use it.
