Does anyone know of any Web sites that feature marketing campaigns that were successful?

Question by JB: Does anyone know of any Web sites that feature marketing campaigns that were successful?
I’m looking for examples of marketing strategies that worked worked and why. And if numbers are included that’s always good too …

Best answer:

Answer by Trixi
If you are talking about online marketing, then there are some sites where you can learn about your competition. Try It used to be free, but now you have to pay to use it. It lets you look at the keywords, bids and other information about other companies online advertising. It’s pretty cool.

As for strategies that work, here are a few to get you started:
1. Capitalize The First Letter Of Each Word – people are more likely to click
2. Never say “Save 30%”. No one cares. Give an exact number, like “Only $ 199”.
3. You can’t say Best, but you can say “unbeatable”.
4. Always run a few ads and decide which one brings in the most sales
5. Use analytics. You can get a great analytics program for free from google. Try to sign up
6. Join an affiliate program. There is usually a sign up fee, look at “commission junction” for example, but after that fee, you only pay a commission on sales, so you only pay if you are making money. It’s a win win 🙂
7. Lastly, Google, Yahoo and MSN all offer tools for you to find keywords… Use them, but with a grain of salt. Those tools are not designed to give you conversions, they’re designed to make money for Google, Yahoo and MSN.

5 Easy Steps to Successful Internet Marketing – Website Content

The reason why a user visits your website is because they are after information. Whether they are seeking the opinion of a professional, a product, service or review, people are looking for information and answers to questions. Just keep answering the question “What’s in it for me?” (WIIFM), as this is the only question that matters to the customer. Text content equals importance on the Internet. You should only have quality, informative content that is easy to understand so visitors can share your message. The most important rule a website must adhere to, is to create an abundance of focused, original content. This will interest your visitors, prompt conversion, encourage word of mouth and attract links from reputable sites. A website that lacks quality content is a failure to both search engines and visitors. Just as you should insert particular content into your website, you should also remove any text that does not assist you will the sales process. Put yourself in your customer’s shoes and walk around in them for a while to get the feel of things. This is only a metaphor — Do Not put on your customer’s shoes and play kickball in them! I doubt the customer would appreciate it (unless perhaps you were hired to, because this is your forte), and most likely won’t remain your customer after that. You will be in a better position to meet the needs of customers if you learn more about who your target audience is. The more you know about your target audience, the easier it

Michael Fisher of Coldwell Banker discusses On Location’s successful viral marketing campaigns

Michael Fisher, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Coldwell Banker, talks to SEO-PR President Greg Jarboe about the success of On Location’s viral marketing campaigns. Fisher is very happy with their YouTube channel, and how it energized their network by showcasing what video can do for them. Fisher says that the future of real estate will involve video because it’s fairly simple to get started and to organize the campaign. Fisher gives as an example of a successful video campaign the test case of a woman from Salem MA, who has a bubbly personality and is perfect for video. Her onscreen talking about the property not only makes the property feel better, but also gives the potential consumer the essence of what she is going to be like and how she can help market her property. She also has a great video bumper that she uses for all her video listings. Its a coffee mug on the beach on Boston’s north shore with seagulls in the background, she picks up the mug takes a spit and puts it back down, all you see is the mug with a little lip mark on it, and she says ‘That’s why I live in New England’. Videos like that get the viewer excited about moving to the area, and when she comes in and tells you about the property, you are sold 10 seconds into the video.

How to Develop a Successful Social Media Campaign – with Eric Enge

In this video interview, Internet marketing expert Eric Enge outlines the various steps involved in developing – and experimenting with – a social media campaign. First, says Enge, you need to define your objectives and decide how you’ll measure success. Typical objectives might be: to lower the cost of customer service, or to build your brand, or to get new customers. Next, you need to figure out where your audience is, on what social media sites they can be found. One approach is to see what your competition is doing, but you’ll need to experiment here. Now, determine what resources you need to accomplish your objectives and develop your content. You’ll need to plan content that is relevant to your business and fits your audience well. Since this kind of content creation is so closely related to your business, it is difficult to outsource completely. Stay in close touch with content creators, since they don’t understand your business or market as well as you do. Experimentation – and mistakes – are an essential part of the process of finding success with social media. You might position this to your boss as ‘the ramp-up time before we see a benefit.’ Finally, measure so you can learn from and improve your campaign in the future. Eric Enge is the CEO of Stone Temple Consulting (, a holistic search engine optimization firm offering expertise in SEO, PPC, and social media optimization. This interview was recorded on August 17, 2011 at the SES Conference

Does SEO take a lot of time to do on your own to have a successful business website?

Question by : Does SEO take a lot of time to do on your own to have a successful business website?
I work at very small company (2 employees) and we are thinking of building and optimizing a website to sell our fitness equipment products. We don’t want to pay anyone or hire on anyone to do this, but want to handle the set-up and SEO ourselves. We no little about this but are quick learners. We are thinking this will be easy and only take a couple hours a day. Is this insane?

Best answer:

Answer by MarcapPub
SEO is actually a very simple concept, despite the fact that so many try and complicate it, and try to sell their over-priced services which are rarely, if ever, effective. i.e. NO one can guarantee you a top 10 position on Google, despite so many claims to that effect. All you really need is a good meta-tag section. It will look something like this:

A short title of your website goes here

That’s it. Submit it to the search engines.

If you Google “meta tags”, you will likely find many variations of the above, as well as perhaps a better explanation of each “tag” than I have provided. But this should at least get you started.

Good luck!
