Hilary Topper from HJMT Communications gives more expert sales and social marketing advice

In this week's show we're going to focus on Land Rover, a case study. I don't know if you're familiar, but Land Rover recently hired people who Tweet, Tweeters to Tweet about their new vehicle. And they looked for Tweeters who had followers of more than 3,000, 4,000, 5,000 followers in the right demographics to talk about their new car.

And I think what's interesting about that is that it's taking a different approach. It's almost like targeting bloggers to review your restaurant, or targeting bloggers to review a cookie. They are actually targeting people who Tweet on Twitter to review their car and to talk about it. I just think that's really interesting, and I thought I'd share that with you.

The point here is that you could use Twitter in different ways.

You may think that what Land Rover did-- you may think that it was wrong or it was right to do, but what I'm trying to get across here is that you could be creative on Twitter and throughout the social media and social networking. So that's something to really think about when using social media.

With a big number of link exchange scripts on the market it is vitally important to know what factors differ a good script from a script that will waste link building campaign and threaten the success of your whole site's existence. You can use this review as a list of checkpoints to qualify any link exchange tool for professionalism and effectivity.

Crucial factors of link building:

(1) Quality and relevancy of link partners.
(2) SEO nature of link exchange directory and its pages.
(3) Expenses on link building and link management.
(4) Link exchange conversions.

Let's make a step by step test drive for Auto Link Exchanger over these points so that you could apply the same strategy for estimating other link building solutions.

(1) Quality and relevancy of link partners.

No doubts. The quality of links is a huge advantage. Search engines will not penalize a site for having back links on bad sites as you physically cannot control all sites that link to you. But if you are reciprocating to these sites and these sites don't have relation to your niche or don't have much trust - your link building can become a big trouble.

When Google is estimating the page to which you are reciprocating, their bots take into account (a) page rank of that page, (b) trust rank of the site, (c) relevancy. Auto Link Exchanger applies the same principles as its searching algorithm finds relevant sites and places link on pages that are nicely indexed and properly represent their niche. You can even choose Auto Link Exchanger's setting to pick sites that are higher than PR 2 or 3 or 5 - up to you.

(2) SEO nature of link exchange directory and its pages.

The old days when links could be piled on category pages are over. Search engines will not penalize you for it. But those who use the latest SEO fashion to create link directory pages get solid advantage over those who create old style SEO-weak directories.

Close to a must today is having keywords in category titles, descriptions, URLs, in the content on the pages. Plus it is also crucial to blend relevant content with links right on the pages. Pages should have RSS feeds.

Auto Link Exchanger automated all these factors. With a number of settings made the tool is automatically creating SEO-wise pages, updates RSS feeds to search engines, delivers relevant news on pages and blends them with links. Also gives extra visibility to links by automatically showing PR picture and Alexa Rank close to each site.

(3) Expenses on link building and link management.

Link exchange is expensive: find links, exchange them, create link directory, control the links on other sites - this can turn into a big monthly budget on SEO team. You can cut down these expenses if you do all these jobs yourself, but you must be prepared to spend most of your daily time on this job.

Auto Link Exchanger automates most of the link building processes that include: building link directory, integrating necessary SEO elements into it, finding link partners, managing link exchange, controlling the backlinks. The only aspect that site owner should do with Auto Link Exchanger is installing the script and making its settings.

(4) Link exchange conversions.

Link exchange conversions are one of the biggest despairs of link building. Old-fashioned procedure of sending beggy email and waiting when someone will build links with your site gives very low conversions. Even if you make your emails customized it gives around 10% of clicks on these emails, and only part of opened emails will give you link exchanges. This results in very low percentage of successful link exchange conversions.

Auto Link Exchanger uses revolutionary principle of finding link partners that gives 50-60% link exchange conversions. And this is without sending beggy emails. The tool is shortcutting you directly to the pages and your links get on them - webmasters just need to approve which happens within first 15 minutes - up to several days. In some niches 80% conversions were reached with Auto Link Exchanger's link building.

Using the same factors you can scale the value of other link building solutions on the market.

And if you want to test advantages of Auto Link Exchanger in action, you can get a free copy of this tool here:

Despite the buzz and excitement about Twitter's potential as a social marketing platform, there are still people out there for whom Twitter just won't work.

In this new business television show, Twitter for business expert Mark Shaw shares his latest social marketing tips on how to know if you are one of those rare people who just can't get value for their business from Twitter.

In the show, Shaw divides his business advice into ten reasons that Twitter may not work for you.

Each of the reasons also contains a practical social marketing tip on how to use Twitter effectively as part of your small business marketing strategy.

Shaw has based each of his ten social marketing tips on real experiences he has had with businesspeople and personality types who just can't seem to leverage Twitter for their small business marketing strategy.

Viewers can watch the business television show right here for free to hear Shaw's ten reasons that Twitter might not work for you.

For the impatient, however, here are the first couple of reasons.

Firstly, says Shaw, if you are selfish, Twitter will not work well for you. This is because Twitter is essentially about sharing – sharing your contacts, sharing information and advice, sharing links.

You will only get the best social marketing results if you understand this and follow the unwritten Twitter 'rule book'.

Similarly, says Shaw, you need to enjoy engaging with people if you want to see great business results from your Twitter-based social marketing strategy. After all, social marketing is not called social for nothing.

To make social marketing work for your business, you need to engage with your followers, customers, and contacts.

Twitter marketing requires an entirely different approach from the old days of broadcast marketing, where you simply pumped your message out into the world and hoped that someone would take notice.

Twitter is fast becoming one of the most powerful social marketing platforms available today. But as with any networking platform, Twitter’s potential as a business development tool is only realized when you have a strong community of contacts.

Social marketing and Twitter-for-business expert Mark Shaw shares is latest online business advice on building a large Twitter following in this new business television show from yourBusinessChannel.

Many new Twitter users, says Shaw, find that building up their contacts is a challenging and difficult process. However, there are a few basic steps that anyone on Twitter can follow, to get lots of followers who are interested in what they have to say.

Shaw begins his social marketing tips by recommending that you use the search functionality on the Twitter website to find any Twitter users who you are already connected with on other platforms, like Facebook or Gmail. This is the logical place to start, he says on the business television show.

Once you have a few followers, he says, have a go at sending a tweet. Don’t feel like you need to rush into being a power user, just take it slow to begin with, watch and learn and make sure you feel confident with how Twitter works.

Remember, there is no time limit and no rule that you need to build you network up quickly.

Shaw shares many more tips on leveraging maximum benefit from Twitter for your small business marketing strategy. He explains how to use a number of key Twitter applications to find users who share similar interests to your own. The Tweepsearch tool, for example, lets you search other people’s profiles for relevant keywords.

Another good way to build up your following is to add your followers’ followers. Just go to your friends’ profiles and start clicking. This is not a highly targeted web strategy, but it pays to try everything and see what works best for you.


“A business without a sign is a sign of no business”. This is an advertising banner or quotation that can be seen in large billboards along the roads and on the side or top of buildings that is vacant. Television and radio would say, “This program would not be shown or be heard without advertisement”. It is true since most of us are watching the free television channel and programs are produced by payments of advertisements.

Business owners understand how important an advertisement is. It is in this manner that they would tell to everybody that they are selling products and offering services. They would not have sales, which in turn give them profit, if people would not notice and buy their products and avail of their services.

However, it is not happy to note that there are people who would try to steal money from advertisers and business owners by offering cheap advertisement packages and not delivering the agreed service. Business owners and advertisers should be informed of this because they would become victims of a scam.

The scam here is when the advertiser paid for these different kinds of services but none or some of them are not really even performed. The main point to consider here is to whom is the advertiser transacting with. To avoid being ripped off doing a background check by knowing the following will help.

  • past successful projects as evident on customers comments

  • a good reputation that will be confirmed by his references, (people that he's had past transaction with and that are also reputable)

The pay-per-click ad campaign is when an advertiser would pay a certain agreed amount by the search engine developers every time a user clicks on that banner. This was a good idea before it was not touched by hackers who developed a certain program to automatically click on that banner which increases the amount to be paid by the advertiser. The next paying scheme was the “pay per action”, which is harder to hack since the advertiser would only pay the search engine developers an agreed amount every time a sale would be done on that customer.

One thing is for sure, advertising in the Internet is not easy but it is fun, especially when one understands fully the power of the Internet. It is not a unidirectional means of advertising like the television or radio, but it is an interactive avenue for both the advertiser and the prospective clients.

Internet marketing is quickly becoming one of the most popular advertising options available. The Internet reaches a worldwide audience and is available 24 hours a day. For this reason more and more potential customers are turning to the Internet for a variety of reasons including researching products and services and making purchases. As more and more consumers turn to the Internet for these reasons, it is important for businesses to establish an online presence. This is so important because failure to do so may result in their competitors gaining an edge over them in competing for sales. While it is important for business to begin Internet marketing campaigns it is also important for these same businesses to realize basic advertising principles still exist and they cannot neglect these principles. Most importantly those who advertise online have to be aware of who their target audience is and how to reach this audience.

As with any marketing campaign, business owners should do some market research before they launch their Internet marketing campaign. Ideally this will involve hiring a research consultant with a great deal of experience in conducting and evaluating this type of market research. The results of this research should determine the basic demographical information for the target audience. The results should also include information on how to reach this target audience. A business that cannot afford to hire a consultant to conduct this market research should still make an effort to obtain this information on their own. This can be done through informal polls of current clients. This information may not be as comprehensive as the information obtained in a more formal study but it can still provide a great deal of insight into the best way to reach the target audience.

Once this information is obtained, it is important to tailor the Internet marketing campaign to appeal to the target audience. There are a number of different variables which can be modified to ensure the right message is reaching the right people in a manner they can understand and in which they can relate. Some of the ways in which your Internet marketing campaign can be tailored in this way include the aesthetics of your website or advertisements, the wording of your copy and the use of more advanced design features such as audio and visual or interactive tools.

The aesthetic appeal of a website can greatly contribute to how the website is viewed by the members of the target audience. A website which is designed to attract the attention of an older generation with more conservative tastes should include muted colors, clean design and conservative graphics. This will help to ensure the target audience enjoys the website. Conversely if you are looking to appeal to a younger audience with more liberal viewpoints you might chose to design the website with bold colors, eye catching graphics and creative design features.

The copy you include on your website should also take your target audience into consideration. Consider the examples of a conservative and a liberal audience listed above to create a better understanding of how the copy on your website can appeal to the target audience. When marketing to a more conservative audience, the copy should be tailored to use formal language and use facts to back up viewpoints. However, when you are marketing to a more liberal audience or a younger audience you can consider using less formal language which is likely to appeal to the target audience. You can also focus more on emotion to express viewpoints.

Finally, when a website is created for the purposes of Internet marketing it is important for the design of the website to appeal to the target audience. You may wish to include audio and video clips on your website but these clips should appeal to the target audience. For example if your website sells skateboards you might consider incorporating audio clips from punk rock bands as opposed to country music bands. There may be some skateboarders who enjoy country music but in general punk rock music more closely represents the skating culture. Keeping these details in mind is very important for Internet marketing.
