How to Advertise using Smartphones?

Smartphones have revolutionized communications and the application of mobile phones in business. These smartphones have become very useful in business and are used in varying degrees of success as advertising and marketing tools. Advertising on smartphones works for communication carriers, businesses and smartphone applications developers.

When you are considering using smartphones in your advertising and marketing strategy, there are several ways you can use them and integrate their users into your advertising plans. Since smartphones run software programs, called applications, you can develop an application for your customers to install on their phones and easily access your products. These applications can also be used to provide support services to customers and gather feedback about the quality of your products and their ease of use.

You can also place advertisements that pop up when the application is being used or run as banners in the application’s interface. These advertisements should not take up much space or be bothersome to the phone user. You can additionally provide an option of turning off the advertisements to users. Applications that are paid for can have advertisements based on whether the application is registered or if it is a free version that the user has installed.

The other option you can take is the sending of bulk text messages. This requires that you have a database of the phone numbers of your target consumers and then send them text messages informing them about your products and other relevant information. Text messages are cheap to send and some carriers offer unlimited text messages on their networks. Smartphones allow for easy sending of bulk messages and scheduling can be done so that the messages are sent at a specified time of the day.

Looking for payment system to install on your blog? PayPal is one of the most convenient, secure, and widely trusted online payment systems for vendors and customers alike. You can install a PayPal button on your blog or website and start accepting credit card payments from customers within minutes!

E-commerce has steadily risen to dominate the online space in recent years. Through the availability of fast Internet connection, as well as easy access to computers and mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones, anyone can search for products, read reviews, compare prices, and purchase items at the best prices online, anywhere and anytime.

There is indeed tough competition in e-commerce and you don’t want to be left behind. Make payments so much easier for your customers by installing a PayPal button on your blog.

What is PayPal?

PayPal is an alternative payment method that allows any business or individual with a registered email address to send and receive payments online. This provides convenience to both customers and business owners because it’s a more secure and cost-effective option.

Customers prefer to use PayPal as it allows them to keep their credit card details secure. There’s no need to them to provide sensitive credit card information online. Instead, they only need a PayPal email account to complete a transaction.

To start administering payments using PayPal, you can install a PayPal button on your blog. There are two types of buttons you can install: one is for asking website visitors to make a donation via PayPal, and the second is through the addition of a PayPal shopping cart. Your choice would depend on the type of product or services you are soliciting payments for.

For instance, the donation button is often found on independent websites where users can download products for free (eg. artworks) with the option to make donations. The PayPal shopping cart is popular for most e-commerce sites.

You simply install an icon to your blog and link the button to your account to start receiving payments. But before anything else, you would of course need a Pay Pal account. If you don’t have one yet, here’s what you need to do:
  • Visit the PayPal website and sign up for an account.
  • Fill out and submit a registration form, then return to the PayPal homepage.
  • Login wth the the email address and password you submitted for registration.

Useful Guide to Write Engaging Blog Contents!

Engaging, according to Merriam-Webster's dictionary, means “very attractive or pleasing in a way that holds your attention.” This word is easy to describe but complicated to achieve.

engage readers

In blogging, holding the attention of the readers can be tricky. Once a blogger or a web administrator attracts people to read, holding them to finish the article will only last nine seconds or less. According to Ted Selker, an expert from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, people who often browse hundreds of web pages grows shallow interest to a lot of things. Their attention span and concentration skills falter because there are many sites they can visit.

Why is it Important to Engage Readers?

Readers are the movers of your web traffic and activity. If they don't engage in reading your contents, sharing, and commenting on it. The site can loose indicators of a quality website. Remember, Google has high standards in choosing which website they'd like to appear in search engine results page. Your backlink is not enough to tell whether your page is good for Google. It must have steady stream of traffic and activity, which your readers can only do if you keep them engaged.

Engaging readers can also lead to:

  • Better Traffic
  • Improve Sales (e-commerce websites)
  • Improve Rankings
  • Promote Community of Readers
  • Improve Social Media Activities
  • Build Stronger Influence

How Do I Engage My Readers?

As mentioned, attracting them is easy but engaging them can be tricky. Many web admins think regular posts are enough to engage them. But they always falls short in soliciting comments and shares.

The way writers make their articles has a lot to do with why this happens. To help you improve your site activity and engage readers, here are few tips that you can do:

Make your article short

Short articles are your best weapons against short attention span. Hold readers' attention in a 500- 600 words content. They can read the article fast, so they have enough time to leave comments.

If you have so many things to write, there are other ways to shorten your blogs, here are few:

  • Embrace Line Breaks
  • Use Subheadings
  • Apply Bullets
  • Bold/ Italicize Words
  • Use Numbers

Long-tailed vs Short tailed Keywords: Comparison of their Efficiency

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is a tricky business for the fact that Google just keeps on moving the goal posts. Again and again they keep changing what we should and shouldn’t do, and now that the Google Hummingbird update is out it seems that the search engine results may start evolving via the type of content web masters put on to it.

seo keywords

The efficiency of long and short tailed keywords is now up for question, especially since some people think the Google Hummingbird update is going to do away with long-tailed keywords and maybe even the reliance on keywords we have. Here is a quick comparison of short and long tailed keywords.

What is a short tailed keyword?

It is just another name for a keyword, although that term is also confusing. A keyword may also be a key phrase as there may be more than one word in it. “Homes in Atlanta” is technically a keyword and key phrase (making it a short tailed keyword too); just like the words “Homes” and “Atlanta” are keywords in themselves. 

What is a long-tailed keyword?

A long-tailed keyword is more like a phrase that could be mistaken for a fuller search engine query. Using the example above, “Homes in Atlanta” is a short tailed keyword, whereas “Cheap homes in Atlanta” or “Cheap homes for sale in Atlanta” are long-tailed keywords. Can you see how the long-tailed keyword may be a full search query? You can imagine how someone may just type “Cheap homes for sale in Atlanta” into the search engine and click to search.

One is more efficient at tight targeting

A long-tailed keyword is more descriptive, which means it is better at targeting. A person typing in “Cheap homes for sale in Atlanta” is going to get more targeted results than a person who just uses “Homes in Atlanta.” As you can imagine, if you happen to have the same long-tailed keyword on your web page then whoever searches for a similarly specific web page are going to find you.

Search Engine Optimization: Understanding Your SEO Figures

Your SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is all to do with making your website more search engine friendly. When you run analytic programs it is usually to see how your SEO is coming along and how your website is doing regarding traffic numbers and such. Here are a few SEO terms that you may have heard and what they mean.

SEO Figures

Unique Visitors

These are the amount of people who have looked at your web page. They are called unique visitors to give you a better idea of how many people actually visited as oppose to how many times the page was visited. It rules out the people who may have come back to your website several times in one day.

RSS Feed Visitors

This is a powerful metric that few people appreciate. If people are signed up to your RSS feed then they are doing so in order to keep up to date with the things you are posting on your website or blog. The fact that they keep coming back means you are doing something right and it is a very good sign for the health of your website if the RSS feed visitor numbers are slowly rising.

Organic SEO vs Google AdWords: Which one should you go for?

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is about making your website more search engine friendly. Organic SEO is a little misleading in this case. Most people do not realize that organic SEO means simply creating optimized pages and letting nature (online intercourse) do the rest. Most people think that organic SEO means running and maintaining yours on and off page SEO on a full time basis, and that is what this article assumes it means too.

seo vs google adwords

In essence you should go for both

This is truer than the fact that Snow White had neck ache from always looking down. You should essentially go for SEO and ranking up your website, and you should go for Google AdWords. The trouble is that Google AdWords is not a long term solution for most people, but that does not mean it cannot be. There are quite a few people who have a self sustaining Google AdWords account.

Google wants you on Google AdWords

This is truer than the fact that Doc from Snow White was sent to prison for practicing medicine without a license. Every time Google creates an update their profits soar and this is for two reasons. The first is because websites with Google Adsense on them seem to mysteriously rank up, and the second is because people fall from the Search Engine results and have to start paying for Google AdWords adverts if they want traffic.
