One of the best Podcasts ever (IMHO), and now it's on Google Play Music!

Beyond Social Media is a hoot!

Each week, B.L. and David review the best of and worst of Social Media, along with the latest shiny new objects and even a few statistics.

What I especially like about this podcast is the little bit of her New York Values edge that B.L. brings to her commentary. David's opinionated too, but with Midwest sensibilities.

Check 'em out, and subscribe if you like.

It's a fun way to keep up with the latest in Social Media with an emphasis on marketing for the small business.

Video helps convert website visitors

Valuable podcast interview for those considering using video to convert website visitors to customers.

Check out 19 minutes into the show to learn the mistake people make when using video ...
 
PODCAST: How to Boost Your Website’s Conversion Rate Using Video (Ep. 20)
What if you could make 20% more revenue using the same traffic and sales process you currently use? 
And to get those results, all you need to do is add one great video to your website? 
It almost sounds too good to be true. But is it really? Click here to listen: http://www.wirebuzz.com/boost-website-conversion-rate-using-video/

As a matter of fact, videos can dramatically improve your conversion rate without changing any other inputs, making video an excellent tool for increasing your sales and marketing results.
 
However, you can’t just put up any video and expect results — the video needs to be designed for the job you’re asking of it. 
That’s why in this episode of Video Marketing Mastery, I’ll be talking to @113358019127073178834, the founder and CEO of @114001303886407670775, a conversion rate optimization expert.  

You’ll discover: 
What “conversion optimization” is and how to use it
Why increasing your conversion rate dramatically improves marketing ROI
The proper way to use video if you want to increase your conversion rates
You don’t want to miss this show! 

NOTE: You can listen to the episode here
http://www.wirebuzz.com/boost-website-conversion-rate-using-video/

In This Episode, You’ll Learn:
What “conversion optimization” means and why it’s an unfortunate term
Why “conversion optimization” should really be “marketing optimization,” because it’s not just about metrics, but really understanding your customers
How video can be used to increase conversion rates (if used properly)
What the quality of your videos says about your brand
How to apply the 6 Factors of CRO as a framework for creating effective videos
Why it’s more cost-effective to test your message before creating a landing page video
How big your audience should be to start A/B testing
Why a basic understanding of statistics is critical to the testing process
If websites with less traffic can use ads to drive test results faster
Some common mistakes marketers make with video (and how to avoid them)
Why video works better with good copy and images (not the only thing on the page)
Why you should never use autoplay sliders or video backgrounds on your website

Introduction
The great Wayne Gretzky once said, “Skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.”

With that in mind, I took a year to listen & learn about social media. It took about nine months to feel as if I really “got it” (and another three to figure out my "niche”).

So, here is what I learned.

  • Secrets of social media for small business
  • Give it the best you’ve got and give it away freely.
  • As in real life, it takes time to build trusting relationships.
  • Also just as in real life, sincerity, honesty and an open heart help.
  • When the customer/client/patient is ready to buy/act/choose,
  • You’ will already be there, ready to sell/provide/serve.
  • Consider it the “Universal Principle of Reciprocity.”
In other words,  ”Skate to where the puck is going to be.
