There is too much content and too little time to consume. 
What does your content strategy look like...?

Do you have a Facebook page for your business? Are you doing things with video? Did you know that it's important to do so? 

Did you also notice Facebook added more video functionalities? Featured videos and playlists! 

Really easy to use, I quickly made this as a reference, 3 steps to a better FB page. Have fun & do it!

The movie 'what women wants' shows very well how difficult it is to put yourself into your target audience's shoes.

I wrote about this on my personal blog:

I'm trying out something new and very special today on State of Digital: 

I'm posting not just 1, but 8 (!) articles at the same time. 'Netflix style publishing' to give readers all they need around one topic at the same time, no wait, no searching, it's just there.

In this case I to experts and looked back on 5 years of SEO and looked at these topics:

Hummingbird and Knowlegde Graph
The impact of Mobile
The Panda and Penguin updates
The SEO’s nightmare: Not Provided
The changing SERPS: Personalisation, Localisation and more
The biggest changes to an SEO’s job
The most important part of an SEO’s job

Overview of all here:

http://www.stateofdigital.com/five-years-seo/

Let me know what you think of this style of publishing!
A complete overview of five years of SEO, from Panda and Penguin, Not Provided, Hummingbird and Knowlegde Graph, Mobile and SERPS

    I am a very experienced and motivational speaker who travels the world speaking about digital audiences, digital marketing and related topics. I am a regular keynote speaker on different marketing and search events as well as for in company talks around the world. I have been speaking on major events like SES, SMX, A4U Expo as well as on smaller events like SASCON, ISS, Domainfest, and have spoken at events in different parts of the world like UK, US, Iceland, Iran, Ukraine, Spain, Sweden, Germany and many more. I have also been hired by companies like Bol.com, Sanoma and others to talk internally about marketing and search and social in specific. As a trained history teacher my talks are different from ‘regular’ speakers about online marketing related topics. The combination of history, psychology, new developments and marketing strategy and tactics, together with the art of story telling is a unique experience you are not going to forget soon.

    As the Social Marketing Ambassador for the Dutch Dialogue Marketing Association (DDMA) I have been working on closing the gap which exists between the early adopters in the industry and those looking to ‘do something’ with social marketing. I have set up the new website, created a Social Marketing Group, done talks with members who wanted to know more about the core of Social Marketing, organized clinics and worked on making the DMA more 'social' in general.

Story
Tagline
I help businesses get an understanding of their audiences by speaking, training, consulting and publishing.
Introduction

Is the constantly changing world of digital marketing making you feel like you want more grip and focus? Are you trying to get an understanding of how your audience behaves online and do you want to know what they want and how you can act on that?

I help businesses get an understanding of their audiences and the ever changing digital marketing space by speaking, publishing, training and consulting. Through online marketing strategies like Social Media, Search and Content Marketing we then get into a real communication with the audience.

I travel the world a lot because businesses invite me to come to their country to help them create more understanding and they widely considered to be an expert and influential on Digital and Internet Marketing.

See more about my consultancy work here: http://www.basvandenbeld.com/strategy/

This expertise I have built up over the past 15 years by working with diverse companies as a consultant (KLM, MTV, DMA, but also smaller agencies and businesses in a wide range of topics) and by speaking and training on Digital marketing and audience topics. I am an experienced award winning speaker in online marketing related topics, speaking all over the world, from US, UK to Iceland and Iran on big conferences and at internal events.

See more about my speaking work here: http://www.basvandenbeld.com/speaking/

I also write a lot about the topic. I’ve co-authored several e-books and whitepapers. I am also the founder and owner of award winning blog State of Digital, a website that tries to help marketers become the best at their jobs.

Find out more about State of Digtal here: http://www.stateofdigital.com/about/

Finally I am also a start up mentor. Working with different Startup incubators in Europe I try to help start up find their way in a fast changing industry and help them focus on what matters for their audience.
