  • 4. Two Major Disciplines of Marketing• Marketing divides into to distinctive areas: – Creative Side (“design”) – Business Side (“marketing”)• 90% of Marketing is Internet Marketing – Therefore, the keyword phrases searched upon most for these two areas: • “Website Design” • “Internet Marketing”• If 90% of Marketing is Internet Marketing, it makes more sense to create and hire Internet Marketing freaks and add or outsource the other 10% (research, branding), rather than trying to add Internet marketing skills to 10%’ers.• Content is still KingPage 4 forwardm.com
  • 5. Cloud-Based IT• Fix or build the production pipeline before working about production• Monumental shift to cloud-based IT services – More secure, less expensive, lower complexity, greater flexibility – Content is King and moving to cloud preps you for content production• Old: Microsoft, HP, IBM, Dell, Windows, Yahoo, Gmail, MS Office, local hard drive based file storage, desktop based software tools, flash drives• New: OpenDNS, Dropbox or Box.net, Google Apps, Google Android, Google Chrome OS, QuickBooks Online, LastPass, tablets, social media accounts, personal branding, return on investment (personal and professional), Samsung, Apple, HTC, Motorola/Google, Bing, Google Docs or Office 365 (soon), Mint.com, Online Banking• Hurricanes, pregnancy & bad ethnic food are no excuse – Get it done wherever you arePage 5 forwardm.com
  • 6. Marketing Research• It all starts with marketing to determine the strategy and benchmark the progress (i.e., ROI)• Industry research (First Research)• Competitor research (SpyFu, Web CEO)• Self audit, usually of your website (Web CEO, SpyFu, Grader.com)• Related Google Search Trends• Buyer Personas (Insighting Ideas)• Keyword Research (KWR) (Market Samurai, Google AdWords tool)• Content Topics for content message & writing, photos topics, video scripts, on- site SEO, PPC Advertising (Google Adwords), etc.• Determination of the metrics to gauge progress & adjust coursePage 6 forwardm.com
  • 7. Brand Marketing• Selection of Brand (research in advance, first to use, not first to own)• Protection of Brand (USPTO.gov, MyCorporation, symbol usage)• Monitoring of Brand (Radian6, Trackur)• Engaging around discussions involving Brand (TrafficGeyser)• Logo Portfolios – CMYK & RGB – 2D and 3D – Logos, Icons & Favicons – Landscape & Portrait – Plain, with URL, with Slogan, with icon, text only – For print, web, video, social media accounts, brochures, etc.Page 7 forwardm.com
  • 8. Design Services• Logo Design• Presentation Template Design• Landing Page Design• Blog Design• Website Design – Old: static page websites by Adobe Dreamweaver • Expensive software, highly trained webmaster, desktop-based, technical to access – New: database driven content management system, namely WordPress • Cloud-based via browser access, easy to learn, accessible via tablet/phone,; blogging, SEO, SMM, rich media management built in from the ground up; mobile site ready• Webstore Design – eBay’s Prostores, VolutionPage 8 forwardm.com

  • 10. Content Writing• Skills: writing, keyword research (KWR), SEO, website editing• Tools: keyword density tools, Market Samurai, Web CEO, WordPress• Content is Everything; writing the content is the hardest part• Content writing is best when it comes from the client – Search Engines & Visitors alike both know B.S. v. Real Thing despite different approaches of analysis• Takes the longest, often requires much rewriting, goes directly back to the business plan and mission statements (which must be KWR’d or they will fail)• A technical or professional writer who isn’t an Internet content freak is fairly one dimensional and useless• Practice on your resume: 1 page, mission statement, 3 selling points, contact info, social media accounts, clean formatting, keyword researched• Bulleted and numbered lists are loved by people and search enginesPage 10 forwardm.com
  • 11. Review of Tuesday’s Application Assignment• This is the age of personal branding, which must be maintained forever• Get your personal domain for the rest of your life (i.e., TomKing.com)• Get your personal email address for the rest of your life (i.e. tom@tomking.com)• Get your personal resume website for the rest of your life (www.tomking.com)• Get personal business cards (i.e., free from VistaPrint)• Connect who you are with how to get in touch with you• Brand your resume, biz cards, social accounts with new email & web site• Build your website for job interviewer who has 10 seconds to decide if he or she wants to spend an additional 60 seconds.• Make your message and brand equally focused, understandable, positive, humblePage 11 forwardm.com

Human Resources & Training8. Thursday’s Student Application Assignment9. Conclusion: Branding It All TogetherYouTube Social Media Primer (5 minutes) :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGzAHbBmcnkPage 12 forwardm.com
  • 13. Commercial Photography• Search Engines agree a picture is worth a thousand words• Embedding a photo on your website from Flickr or other photo sharing site is worth double the SEO value• Everyone should have an SLR camera and take a photography class – Especially is you are a marketing, design, content, or social media professional• What happens in Vegas … goes on YouTube, Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, SlideShare, Photovine, Google +, etc. Assume your kids will live their life as you documented yours.• Get a professionally done headshot for social media accounts & resume• SEO a key aspect of photos• People learn differently; give them same message in multiple ways. Photos, videos, written word, presentations, audio files (Podcasts, etc.)• Photoshop an essential skill to photography (get certified)Page 13 forwardm.com
  • 14. Video Production• If a photo is worth a thousand words, search engines believe a video is worth a million words! [not literally, but you get the idea]• The #2 search engine in the world is … YouTube• Embedding videos from sites like YouTube gets you double the “link juice”• 30 – 60 second videos that are relevant, recent & unique are best• Keyword Research the scripts of the words, as soon they will be transcribed! [Hello, Google Voice technology]• Assume that whatever you video will be viewed by your next job interviewer• Skill set that is related to photography, though software editing is difficult to learn (i.e., Adobe Premiere) … get certified• Vimeo for long videos, YouTube for under 15 minute videosPage 14 forwardm.com
  • 15. Search Engine Marketing (SEM)• SEM is the optimizing of content based on KWR so search engines will know how to index your content• SEM is both a marketing and creative skill set for web designers• Content is the “most important 30%” of how you rank• Back Links is the other … 70%• Social Media distribution key for the ability to deliver back links• If your content sticks (30%), you won’t get the back links (70%)• 80% of all B2B searches done on Google• Yahoo is dead, replaced and run by Bing• All Facebook searches performed by Bing as part of alliance with FB, Yahoo• Skill set easy to outsource to India or the Philippines, but local language differences have impact• Local search results now given priority over nation search resultsPage 15 forwardm.com
  • 16. Social Media Marketing (SMM)• SMM is merely a name for a class of content distribution tools• Everyone is caught up on SMM rather than the message• “Content Marketing” should be the buzz word instead of “SMM”• Popular services including WordPress blogging, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Flickr, YouTube, SlideShare, Digg, PRWeb• Email marketing with tools like Constant Contact are sort of a hybrid of Content Marketing (message) and SMM (emails that generate links to content, such as social media accounts or primary websites)• Unless you can measure the impact of efforts on SMM, hard to justify• 90% of SMM content is crap (i.e., “I just took a crap”)• Other 10% of SMM content represent real differentiation opportunity for Biz• Start using above tools solely as part of your personal branding strategy in parallel with your personal branded websitePage 16 forwardm.com
  • 17. Mobile Marketing & Mobile App Development• Mobile Apps & Mobile versions of websites are critical for businesses• Tablets and Chrome OS are exciting product launches in this space• Android-powered phones have already beat iPhone• However, iPad destroying Android tablets … but this will change – Watch for Google Nexus Tablet resulting from Google’s acquisition of Motorola• Metrics: if you can’t monitor & measure it, don’t do it• Your content marketing should just extend to mobile as another of distribution• AppMakr is a good mobile app generator if you do lots of social media distributed content• Companies have same resistance today that they had towards websites 10 years after 1994 launch of web, except mobile adoption is gaining at faster rate: adopt or slide back (iPhone launched in 2007, mobile apps in 2009)• Use Airplane mode during classes and meetings; at night – Colleagues, family and friends want your attention, not your intensity or superiorityPage 17 forwardm.com
  • 18. Website Analytics• Website Analytics (using mainly Google Analytics) are web-based metrics to collect user data on your website or otherwise tagged item (documents, mobile apps, social accounts, etc.)• Most ignored and intimidating aspect of Internet marketing. Why? It tells you if you are failing and or flying. [Hint: 90% of the time, you are failing]• Allows you to monitor, measuring, analysis and adapt• Highly technical skill set for deep analysis• Usually is “culture changing” for a company, similar to content marketing• True ROI measuring starts with products like Google AnalyticsPage 18 forwardm.com
  • 19. Human Resources & Training• 90% of Marketing is Internet Marketing• 90% of Internet Marketing is rapidly changing• Team Member training & certification is essential• Job candidate certification requirements weed out the great from the good• 90% of students landing in their first job without certifications are useless – Employers spend another year training• Degrees state what you learned; certifications state what you can do• Get 2-3 certifications for relevant work you want to perform, put on resume – Google Analytics, Google AdWords – Market Motive, Online Marketing Institute – WordPress, Adobe Photoshop/Premiere, Web CEO• Plan on this for your team members in your venturePage 19 forwardm.com
  • 20. Review of Thursday’s Application Assignment• After you get your email address for life (i.e., tom@tomking.com), sign up for and start using a few strategic social media accounts and start using them solely for the areas in which you want to work (blog and publish other content relating to your upcoming career).• Register these accounts, integrate into personal website and resume: – Use KnowEm.com to research account name availablity – LinkedIN, Facebook and – Google + once added to Google Apps accounts – Flickr, YouTube – SlideShare for whitepapers and presentations – Add the mobile apps for all these to your Smartphone (Android, iPhone, etc.)Page 20 forwardm.com
  • 21. Modern Marketing: Bringing It All Together• Develop your strategy with the aid of keyword research• Keep your content message on point with your strategy• Keep your content relevant, recent & unique … it will find an audience or you are in the wrong business• Remember that different people assimilate info different: embrace diverse content distribution methods … namely, social media; not because it is fun or cool, but because you can measure its effectiveness• Monitor the Internet for content by others relating to your brand, then engage• Move all your IT and content tools to the cloud; embrace mobile• If you can’t measure it, rethink how you deploy the activity• If 70% of how you rank in search engines is back links, don’t focus only on the website design and content (the other, most important 30%)Page 21 forwardm.com
