It seems these days that a new app or website is premiered every hour, lauded as the perfect new marketing tool that will revolutionize the marketing industry itself. Until tomorrow, at least. Marketers often spend more time and effort selling than they do innovating new products or services. It’s a cash flow life support system instead of a true growth tool. Their first and often biggest question is how. How does a company reach its customers without them knowing they have been reached? The first instinct appears to be the declared holy grail of the 2000s – social media. But is that instinct realistic considering the glut of options in an ever growing/crowded search environment? No, not if you want to be a standout in the vast world of search. A social media site such as Facebook was developed to…

Is Linkedin worth the time?

By | Asbury Park, Branding, Eatontown, Facebook, Graphic artist, Graphic Design, Instagram, Linkedin, Long Branch, Marketing, NJ, Oakhurst, Pinterest, Small Business Marketing, Social Media, Twitter, West Long Branch, YELP! | No Comments

Do you get business from Linkedin? I’ve been on linkedin since 2003. I have over 45 recommendations, 900 endorsements, and 1,500 connections. I was even recognized by Linkedin for having one of the top 5% most view profiles on linkedin in 2012. Yet as far as I know I’ve only gotten a handful of clients here. When I compare Linkedin to other social media platforms it just doesn’t stand up. I hear Social Media experts tout Linkedin all the time, but I wonder if they are just trying to sell or justify their services. SO my question to you stands: Is LinkedIN worth the time and if you are finding success on Linkedin how are using it? Thank you for your comments.

Why Most Social Media Experts Suck at Their Job!

By | Advertising, Asbury Park, Branding, Eatontown, Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, Long Branch, Marketing, NJ, Oakhurst, Pinterest, Red Bank, SEO, Small Business Marketing, Social Media, Twitter, West Long Branch | No Comments

Most Social Media Marketing Experts Don’t Deliver! If there has ever been a title that has been overused, it would likely be “social media marketing expert.” Everyone seems to know at least one person out there who has called themselves a social media expert, but not everyone really seems to know one that is able to deliver the amazing results that they promise. Most people also know how to use Facebook, twitter, or Google Plus, but does that necessarily make them a de facto expert? Absolutely not! Just like knowing how to use a hammer won’t make you a master carpenter, just knowing the mechanics behind Facebook is not enough to make you an expert in social media. Sadly, most social media experts only know the mechanical or technical side of social media marketing, and that’s just not enough. Social…

How Social Media Impacts Your SEO

By | Advertising, Branding, Facebook, Marketing, NJ, Pinterest, Small Business Marketing, Social Media, Twitter, Website, West Long Branch, YELP! | No Comments

How Social Media Impacts Your SEO Search engine optimization (SEO) should make your website more visible in search engine results. But it’s a common myth to think you’ll wind up on the first page with back links, page keyword stuffing, duplicate content development, etc. Those methods are old school and much of these processes are no longer relevant to major search engines like Google. These days, great content has more influence on how discoverable you are online. For example, try doing searches on Google, Yahoo, and Bing for the term “romantic restaurant New York”. Notice that blogs as well as social media and user generated review sites like Yelp dominate the first page of search results. This means info about you on sites like Yelp is often times more accessible to potential customers than your own website. With that in…

Social Media is big part of The Graphics Guy’s Marketing Strategy

By | Advertising, Facebook, Graphic artist, Graphic Design, Marketing, Pinterest, Social Media, Twitter | No Comments

Social Media is big part of The Graphics Guy’s Marketing Strategy Robert Hazelrigg ~ The Graphics Guy of West Long Branch, NJ talks about his experience with Social Media. In 2007 one of the clients I create graphic design for asked me to create a profile for them on Facebook. Back then there weren’t any business fan pages on Facebook. Facebook was barely heard of, and had yet to hit critical mass. At that time I was creating 6-7 news paper ads for them per week in all of the major markets. (New York Post, Miami Herald, Chicago Tribune, Boston Herald, Washington Globe… etc.) I was designing big full page ads, in big markets for big popular newspapers. It was at this time we started placing coupon in the social pages we had. The results was incredible. Very rapidly we…
