With changes in privacy concerns and social media algorithms, brands need...

No matter how good the ad or content that lead the users to your website is, the page that they land on is all the more important for the conversion. Landing pages are standalone web pages created with the conversion in mind. Advertisers will often ask why is the conversion rate low or bounce rate high, but this is something that publishers have no control of. Their task is to...

Before we get into all the juicy details, let’s first define native advertising. While it’s often mistaken with content advertising, it’s not necessarily the same thing.

If anyone doubted that multichannel marketing is the optimal advertising strategy, 2018 surely convinced that one person.

However, smaller businesses will often struggle with this model, losing dollars without remarkable results.

As a brand selling to clients, you should never ask: what can we do to make it look like we care, you should ask: what can we do to show our clients that we care? Cue in Dove's brilliant Real Beauty Sketches that parallels how we perceive ourselves and how others perceive us. An artist drew women based on their own description and based on the description of a stranger....

Alex was walking down the street, consumed by thoughts about the meeting he was going to have in the morning with an unsatisfied advertiser. As a campaign manager, he had to find a way to keep them happy and returning each quarter with more budget. The numbers didn’t tell a good story.

As time progresses so do the Google Search algorithms. The days when it was enough to dump a lot of keywords into content in order to rank high are long gone. While writers might fear that writing for search engines means that they’ll have to take away from the natural flow of user-oriented writing, this is far from the truth. The ranking factors are more and more focused on what...
