Inbound Marketing Tip: Where Did You Get That Photo?

Posted by Jaco Grobbelaar on Mon, Aug 12, 2013 @ 07:55 AM

Mark Twain channeled the frustration of many artists when he wrote, “Only one thing is impossible for God: To find any sense in any copyright law on the planet.” from Mark Twain’s Notebook, 1902-1903.  Michael Kahn wrote this line in Photography, Copyright, and “Derivative Works”in November 2009. The quote applies to those who want to control the use of their work as well as to those who think that with the advent of the internet current copyright laws are archaic. As inbound marketers we have learned the inbound marketing tip concerning the "article appeal rule" that states that pictures make a huge difference.

Two Landing Pages Properties and Five Ways They Work

Posted by Jaco Grobbelaa on Sun, Jan 22, 2012 @ 05:36 PM

You have spent a lot of your marketing budget setting up your website. Your homepage looks real good and reminds you of the old newspaper ads of old. So why aren’t people converting using it?

Conversion about keeping your customer focused. A homepage full of your products is the opposite of focus. Even if you only have one service for sale, your homepage is full of details, again the opposite of focus.

What you need are specific “landing page” that you can manage and optimize in controlled isolation. Technically a landing page is any page on your website that customers arrive at or land on.  It should be created as a stand-alone page, as a promotion specific site.

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="240" caption="Early blog machine"] [/caption]

At a Chamber of Commerce meeting recently someone mentioned that they were using niche blogging, but you didn’t have a chance to ask what that was. So what is niche blogging?

You already have a blog set up for your business, but what would happen if you set up blogs that could be used in your business from different angles. In other words what if you took a vertical move and created more than one blog that crossed several industries?
