  • @krinalmehta I am so sorry I missed your question - please accept my apologies. The answer to your question is YES. If a company establishes its reputation as the source for daily information and the place for industry-specific discussion among the cognicenti and subsequently fails to provide that, it would constitute a breach of un-spoken promise to that community. And even if the company stopped providing the platform and curation of that discussion with 'proper notice' and even if a very good business or personal reason were offered for stopping, it would threaten the power and draw of the brand from that moment on. The baton would pass to the next entity that chose to pick it up - the company or organization who then chose to put in the effort to provide that daily news, information resources, connect with key communicators and mavens in the field, received, edited, and curated the content, and managed the community discussion.

    Hope that helps.

  • An exhaustive presentation for all SEO professionals, be it conversion optimization, social media marketing, or organic ranking, you've covered it all with beautiful examples. Though I have a small query with regards to loss of brand association (Slide 21): do you mean that if seomoz stops being a daily information source, it is a threat ?

  • Well that is great, but honestly SEOmoz can't succeed solely on increasing PRO memberships. The truth is, there is a lot more to it than that. We have a recognized brand with expectations on it, and a community of over 300,000 people that come to us for the latest SEO information on the web. We can't afford to lose ground on either of those two. These are defining qualities of SEOmoz, and strong advantages over our competitors. So my three questions would leave me more complex answers, something like this:
  • The daily blog provides “life-blood” information to professionals in the search marketing industry. A decrease in visits to the blog indicates that we are slipping from “life-blood” to “interesting material”.
  • These are defining qualities of SEOmoz, and strong advantages over our competitors. So my three questions would leave me more complex answers, something like this:
