How to use surveys for great #SEO and branding. Starting now...

With +Bruce Clay, Inc. and +Andy Crestodina
 
Can a marketing survey help establish your brand and increase customer traffic long-term? How?

Of the many types of content available to marketers, the market survey falls into the lesser-used end of the spectrum. #Surveys take a lot of planning; they require lots of people's participation; they need technology to make them work; and results require some scientific analysis. And those steps are just the beginning, to give you something to talk about! With so much work involved, how can running a marketing survey be worth it?

Our guest, +Andy Crestodina, has a theory he calls "The Missing Statistic," which makes surveys like marketing gold. In this Hangout On Air, we'll find out about his experience earlier this month, when +Orbit Media Studios released a survey of 1000+ bloggers (http://www.orbitmedia.com/blog/blogger-analysis/). The results have been widely discussed as "great research, great content" (per +Copyblogger), with key findings pinning down, maybe for the first time, many characteristics of how bloggers do their work. But nowhere have they discussed the why and how of the survey itself.

Join us for this information-packed half-hour event hosted by +Paula Allen, our lead technical writer.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Bruce Clay, Inc.. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Make sure that when you share to Public, you don't select any other circles. You picked one or more circles and then clicked the "Also Send Email" option which notifies everyone of your post. ;)

Very handy! Thanks for spreading the word, +Devan Perine.
 
Best picture sharing sizes for each social media account

LOVED this little guide from +Peg Fitzpatrick on the #dtmvisual  webinar today with +Guy Kawasaki and +John Jantsch (sponsored by +Canva)

So so so helpful.

Also, I've been using +Canva for the past couple weeks and am LOVING it. Not just saying that to say it, but literally I've been using it for most pictures and designs for +EnMast Business Owner Community. And their customer service is the BOMB.
