Prepare for Social Media Trends in 2019 | 7 Ways

How many of you had a MySpace account? I did, and I spent A LOT of time optimizing it. I don't recall ever getting a lead from it though. So here we are in 2019 and we're still optimizing our Social Media accounts. Just wondering, how's it working out for you?

Do you monitor your return on investment of both time and money? Are you generating revenue from your efforts? I'm not sure if I am, but I still do it.

One thing of which we can be certain is that there will be changes in this coming year on how we utilize Social Media and which ones will dominate. It's pretty clear that Facebook is on the ropes after their problems with sharing too much information this past year.

So what should we do? Lindsay Tigar from The Ladders has published "7 social media trends to prepare yourself for in 2019" this morning and I found it informative and helpful. I believe she is taking a realistic view at Social Media and that you might profit from giving it your attention.

Why You Should Use Video Marketing in 2019

I must admit, I've not yet jumped on the video marketing bandwagon. I just haven't figured it out yet. But, that doesn't mean it's not a good idea.

When I'm scrolling through Facebook, video is what captures my attention. I spend a fair amount of time in YouTube; I find video podcasts more engaging. So it's probably true, I probably should join the crowd and start video marketing in the coming year. Sometimes it seems that just as I learn one technology I need to learn another.

Anyway, I found "Video Marketing: Why You Need to Use It in 2019" by Marie Singer at Market Business News and enjoyed it. It's short and to the point and I found it well worth my time. Hope you will too.

Fragmentation in Local SEO Efforts Reported by Moz

Do you know the distinction between Local SEO and National SEO? There is a Massive difference, so you need to understand what is required to be done to your website when you find yourself a local brick and mortar or local service versus someone selling products or services to everyone.

With the introduction of the mobile first index it really is getting harder and harder to rank in the search and map results for businesses outside of the local centroid. Imagine if you happen to be plumber in Durham, NC and you are willing to service customers in a 25-mile radius from your location. Well it's entirely likely that within this 25-mile radius you'll find 10 or more zipcodes. If I'm on the Eastern side of this area, I'll receive entirely different results from someone looking for a plumber on the Western side of this area. Your pool of prospects is shrinking as Google provides more local results to mobile searchers.

So, what now? Greg Sterling, a Contributing Editor at Search Engine Land offers "Moz ‘State of Local’ report shows confusion, fragmentation in local SEO efforts" as an informative source of information on what others are dealing with the changes. This is solid information you will want to know to compete in the search results today.

Online Reviews, Are They Valued Differently by Men and Women?

Let's start at the beginning; do you publish your reviews online? Are most of your clients’ women or men? Do you believe they respond differently to reviews?

I've talked about online reviews on my blog before, and you know how important I think they are. I have analyzed in-depth, the reaction to search listing with and without reviews and I can tell you without hesitation that the number of stars on your listing, and whether you have any, are equally if not more important than the position, provided you're somewhere on the first two pages.

Now, a new variable has been added. Jamie Pitman of BrightLocal has published an article titled "Do Men and Women Value Online Reviews Differently?" and I found it fascinating. If your target demographic is one or the other you really should read this. If your target demographic is both, you really should read this.

Small Business Marketing Strategies That Can Help You Succeed

Many of the small businesses that I speak with tell me that they just can't afford to market their businesses. I truly don't understand this way of thinking. Here's what make sense to me. If you spend $100 on a Facebook ad and receive $150 dollars’ worth of business from that advertising why wouldn't you continue to invest in advertising? I believe what these folks are saying is that they are concerned that they won't receive a return on their advertising investment. In my opinion, that’s a really poor reason to not try.

So if you're looking for some marketing strategies that can help you succeed you're going to really enjoy "Marketing Strategies That Can Help Small Businesses Succeed" from The Economic Times. Within this article is a list of a few proven strategies that are helping businesses across the world to succeed, you really won't want to miss this.

Is Your Business Keeping Up with Evolving Mobile Search?

What percentage of your website visits come from mobile search? If you don’t know, open Google Analytics and select Audience > Mobile > Overview and then look at the Users column to determine the percent of mobile vs desktop traffic you’re receiving. My guess is that over 50% is coming from mobile.

If that’s the case, then you really need to read “Mobile Search Is Evolving—Is Your Business Keeping Up with the Changes?” by Zac Johnson. Zac leads you through the key items on which you should focus. Mobile is a different ball game from desktop and you really need to get mobile right or your conversions and traffic will suffer.

5 Ways Real Estate Agents Can Improve Their SEO Visibility

What is the purpose of a Real Estate Agent having online visibility? Do you want to market yourself or are you trying to market properties? My suggestion would be to market yourself.

If you are an expert in your neighborhood you will become the default go to person for properties in that neighborhood. What I believe prospects want to know is how are the schools, what are the taxes, how will they benefit from living in the neighborhood.

So how do you accomplish that with your online presence? I would keep your website as an online brochure and your social presence as your real marketing. You could have a blog on your website where all the content you publish online is available, but you should be out on Facebook as well with continuous posts of what's happening on your farm. Events, news, changes, start gathering everything you can find and then start to publish it bit by bit.

Adrian Fisher the Founder of PropertySimple has published an article titled "5 SEO Trends Real Estate Agents Can Use in 2019" that offers you additional ideas on how to improve your online presence. I found it worth reading.

Protecting Your Company's Online Reputation

When was the last time you bought something without checking the reviews? One of the first filters I apply to an online search is to sort by number of stars or to only see 4 and 5 star items. This is true whether I’m searching for a local barber shop, restaurant, or something on Amazon.

Many of my clients just want to ignore the reviews and hope against hope that nobody reads them. They’re delusional.

Everybody loves to get good reviews; it’s the bad reviews we fear. There are jerks out and about and it’s just not that difficult to annoy someone who’s already in a bad mood.

So when you get a negative review, I implore you to not ignore it. Responding to a negative review with a sincere desire to make whatever the complaint is right is a better indicator of the type of business you are than a positive review.

Pam Baker of ECT News has written a very informative article titled “How to Protect Your Company’s Online Reputation” I found it well thought out and thorough in its advice and I encourage you to give it a read.
