How I Made it to the Front Page of BuzzFeed Twice, and How You Can Too

BuzzFeed has quickly become one of the most popular websites on the internet, attracting 150 million visits every month. BuzzFeed has also been spending a lot of time on crowdsourcing content within their community section, making it a valuable traffic source to many different websites.

In 2014, I spent a lot of time analysing the content within BuzzFeed to get a better understanding of what makes a great article. This lead me to compile all of my findings into a huge case study (which has just gone live - link below).

Not only that, but using this data I managed to get my content promoted to the front page of BuzzFeed (twice), getting it seen by over 150,000 people. I cashed in on some very powerful links, tons of traffic and more social engagement than I ever could have hoped for. Now I'm going to show exactly how I did it and how you can too.

Don’t Give Up On Facebook Advertising Before Trying These 4 Things

Another superb article on the +Unbounce blog that gives four simple pieces of advice to try out within your Facebook advertising campaigns. For me, the first point is so crucial. Anyone that's looking to run an online advertising campaign should at least have a rough idea of their customer acquisition cost - if you don't, this article will show you how to calculate it (plus much more!).

Over my career, I’ve used KAS Placement Sales and Marketing Recruiters for two searches. Here is my synopsis on them as a staffing firm: - Great customer service. They are always available. - Intelligent. KAS knows executive search very well and we received above and beyond what we expected with job applicants. - Dedicated. Call most sales or marketing recruiters in NYC at 7 p.m. and they will not be in the office. Quite the opposite with KAS. - Friendly. It seems that they care about their clients and we established a very trusting relationship over time. - Outside of the box thinkers. The staff at the company brings fresh ideas for successful recruiting and we loved what they formulated for us. Overall, awesome experience. KAS Placement did sales staffing work for us quick and we now have a better sales division. Thanks, KAS!

The quality of the food was great. The menu was very limited though and a number of dishes were in available, leaving little choice. Great atmosphere though and would recommend coming down for a drink...
