What is pay per inquiry, and why does it work

You need two things to profit from pay-per-inquiry: relationships with media outlets and a desire to advertise across a wide geographical area. Also called cost per lead, pay per lead or pay for performance, it’s a direct response marketing model whereby advertisers receive free ad time and space but only pay for results. The catch: You lose control of where and when the ads will run.

In a nutshell, your job is to entice consumers to call a customer service center. Media outlets often have unused air space, so making use of this unsold advertising space benefits both you and the media outlet. Marketers cycle their offer to their media partners, which produce trackable, measurable results. Your client merely agrees to pay a set price for each qualifying call.

A Brief History of Google Search Algorithms

Published in Online Tidbits

A brief history of Google search algorithms

Confused by algorithms? Who wouldn’t be, considering that Google changes its search algorithms hundreds of times each year. The point of these pesky formulas, however, is not as hard to grasp if you understand why they exist in the first place.

Google bases its search results on PageRank, its original algorithm dating back to the 1990s. PageRank was created to establish a hierarchy that would rank websites in search engine results according to importance and popularity. Generally, it does so by taking into account both the quantity and quality of links to a given page. Your website may not have received thousands of visitors, but if it’s the only online source of expert information on a given topic, it could still rank higher than a spammy page that has been viewed more times.

Many other factors determine the ranking of search results on Google. Take a look at the top three  and what they mean for marketers:

Using Customer Experience to Drive Social Media Engagement

Published in Social Media

Find out what people are saying about your brand

Online reviews are among the best forms of advertising. It should be no surprise, then, that customers tend to trust each other for brand recommendations. And more of them are turning to social media to spread the word about product experiences good and bad.

MarketingProfs reported that 93 percent of consumers who write product reviews are inspired by a positive experience with a brand — while 71 percent do so after a negative experience. And reviews are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of how customers convey their experiences through social media.

Find the conversations
Pay attention to what people are saying about your brand on social media. The reputation that others are spreading can have a huge effect on a brand’s image. When a customer uses YouTube to demonstrate your software, or posts photos of your new makeup line on Pinterest, they’re generating interest through likes and comments.

That customer-driven buzz often expands over time, as links are shared with friends and make their way to new communities with new fan bases. When customers are driving interest, it can take time to generate results, requiring patience and follow-through on the part of marketers.
