Social Media Marketing: It's Like Word of Mouth on Steroids

"...the single most powerful way to build your brand and engage your target audience is through social media marketing..."

The value of social media marketing spans far and wide. Businesses online and local, large and small, have realized the benefit to their bottom line. Doctors, Accountants, Lawyers, Trainers, and many other businesses and professions have also flocked to social media for branding power and growth. The single most powerful way to build your brand, and engage your target audience is through social media marketing. Companies and individuals want their name to be at top of mind when people think about them. Whether the reasons are for public relations or the bottom line, a good social media campaign is a lightning rod for success.

In the past, having a flashy website and being on the first page of Google were the most important considerations in a marketing campaign. Today a site's ability to engage visitors has taken precedence over appearance. Blog based sites that are tied into social accounts have become very popular for many individuals and businesses.

"...In the past, having a flashy website and being on the first page of Google were the most important considerations..."

The old method of marketing and gaining customers online was to build a flashy website, drive visitors to it, and make your pitch. It was like having a grandstanding salesman preach to a silent audience. There was little or no engagement. It worked if you had a hot product and good search rankings, but the explosion of social media has offered more ways to accomplish the same goal.

Today's approach is more personal even for the biggest brands and companies. It involves inviting people to the website, and inviting them to follow all of the corresponding social networks through which a more personal, and romanticized pitch is made. During this process a captive audience is created that you can interact with indefinitely. These are people that have specifically expressed interest in you, or your product or service and will recommend it to friends and family. 

Experts have often referred to Facebook as "the new internet". While that's debatable, it's ability to reach and influence people when combined with other social media accounts is unmatched. Word of mouth referrals are a statistically superior way of gaining new customers. Social Media Marketing is like word of mouth on steroids. You create meaningful content on your website and disperse it through numerous different mediums ranging from forums, to video sites, professional sites, social sites, and more. During this socialization process, people interested in what you have to offer are invited to join your group of followers. You are then able to reach out to this group with future updates, promotions, and more. Keep the content relevant and interesting, and you'll keep your following. As you build your audience, followers will tell their friends and family about you just as they would in the real world. The difference is that when they post an update on their social network it will not only reach the intended person, but will likely reach that person's friends, family, business associates, friends of friends, friends of family, and their business contacts. This results in an exponential increase in the amount of people that are reached and informed about your brand, product, or service.

While all of this is happening you are simultaneously improving your ranking in web searches. Google and other search engines have started indexing the social networks, and that trend is expected to continue. At the end of the day, traditional marketing pales in comparison to what the digital world has to offer. Would you rather run a TV, Radio, or Print advertisement that costs hundreds if not thousands of dollars and is gone after it runs? Or would you like an advertising opportunity that grows daily and pays dividends long after the initial message is delivered? Companies, Brands, Celebrities, Doctors, Lawyers, Accountants, Politicians, and many others have leveraged the power of Social Media Marketing.  

Contact us if you'd like us to handle yours. We work on a monthly retainer and we keep our portfolio small. This allows us to work closely with clients on a very personalized basis.

Duplicate Content will Penalize your Website

Duplicate content is content that appears on the Internet in more than one place. That “one place” is defined as a location with a unique website address (URL) - so, if the same content appears at more than one web address, you’ve got duplicate content.

Duplicate content can sometimes impact search engine rankings. When there are multiple pieces of, as Google calls it, "appreciably similar" content in more than one location on the Internet, it can be difficult for search engines to decide which version is more relevant to a given search query. 

Duplicate content can present three main issues for search engines:

    They don't know which version(s) to include/exclude from their indices.

    They don't know whether to direct the link metrics (trust, authority, anchor text, link equity, etc.) to one page, or keep it separated between multiple versions.

    They don't know which version(s) to rank for query results.

When duplicate content is present, websites can suffer rankings and traffic losses. These losses often stem from two main problems:

    To provide the best search experience, search engines will rarely show multiple versions of the same content, and thus are forced to choose which version is most likely to be the best result. This dilutes the visibility of each of the duplicates.

    Link equity can be further diluted because other sites have to choose between the duplicates as well. instead of all inbound links pointing to one piece of content, they link to multiple pieces, spreading the link equity among the duplicates. Because inbound links are a ranking factor, this can then impact the search visibility of a piece of content.

The net result? A piece of content doesn't achieve the search visibility it otherwise would.

In the vast majority of cases, website owners don't intentionally create duplicate content. But, that doesn't mean it's not out there. In fact by some estimates, up to 29% of the web is actually duplicate content!

Let's take a look at some of the most common ways duplicate content is unintentionally created:

1. URL variations

URL parameters, such as click tracking and some analytics code, can cause duplicate content issues. This can be a problem caused not only by the parameters themselves, but also the order in which those parameters appear in the URL itself.

For example:

    www.widgets.com/blue-widgets?color=blue is a duplicate of www.widgets.com/blue-widgets
    www.widgets.com/blue-widgets?color=blue&cat=3 is a duplicate of www.widgets.com/blue-widgets?cat=3&color=blue

Similarly, session IDs are a common duplicate content creator. This occurs when each user that visits a website is assigned a different session ID that is stored in the URL.

Session ids or parameters can create duplicate content

Printer-friendly versions of content can also cause duplicate content issues when multiple versions of the pages get indexed.

printer-friendly page versions can create duplicate content issues

One lesson here is that when possible, it's often beneficial to avoid adding URL parameters or alternate versions of URLs (the information those contain can usually be passed through scripts).

2. HTTP vs. HTTPS or WWW vs. non-WWW pages

If your site has separate versions at "www.site.com" and "site.com" (with and without the "www" prefix), and the same content lives at both versions, you've effectively created duplicates of each of those pages. The same applies to sites that maintain versions at both http:// and https://. If both versions of a page are live and visible to search engines, you may run into a duplicate content issue.

3. Scraped or copied content

Content includes not only blog posts or editorial content, but also product information pages. Scrapers republishing your blog content on their own sites may be a more familiar source of duplicate content, but there's a common problem for e-commerce sites, as well: product information. If many different websites sell the same items, and they all use the manufacturer's descriptions of those items, identical content winds up in multiple locations across the web.
How to fix duplicate content issues

Fixing duplicate content issues all comes down to the same central idea: specifying which of the duplicates is the "correct" one.

Whenever content on a site can be found at multiple URLs, it should be canonicalized for search engines. Let's go over the three main ways to do this: Using a 301 redirect to the correct URL, the rel=canonical attribute, or using the parameter handling tool in Google Search Console.
301 redirect

In many cases, the best way to combat duplicate content is to set up a 301 redirect from the "duplicate" page to the original content page.

When multiple pages with the potential to rank well are combined into a single page, they not only stop competing with one another; they also create a stronger relevancy and popularity signal overall. This will positively impact the "correct" page's ability to rank well.

Fixing duplicate content issues with 301 redirects

Another option for dealing with duplicate content is to use the rel=canonical attribute. This tells search engines that a given page should be treated as though it were a copy of a specified URL, and all of the links, content metrics, and "ranking power" that search engines apply to this page should actually be credited to the specified URL.

Addressing duplicate content with rel=canonical

The rel="canonical" attribute is part of the HTML head of a web page and looks like this:

General format:

...[other code that might be in your document's HTML head]...
<link href="URL OF ORIGINAL PAGE" rel="canonical" />
...[other code that might be in your document's HTML head]...

The rel=canonical attribute should be added to the HTML head of each duplicate version of a page, with the "URL OF ORIGINAL PAGE" portion above replaced by a link to the original (canonical) page. (Make sure you keep the quotation marks.) The attribute passes roughly the same amount of link equity (ranking power) as a 301 redirect, and, because it's implemented at the page (instead of server) level, often takes less development time to implement.

Below is an example of what a canonical attribute looks like in action:

Using MozBar to identify canonical attributes.

Here, we can see BuzzFeed is using the rel=canonical attributes to accommodate their use of  URL parameters (in this case, click tracking). Although this page is accessible by two URLs, the rel=canonical attribute ensures that all link equity and content metrics are awarded to the original page (/no-one-does-this-anymore).
Meta Robots Noindex

One meta tag that can be particularly useful in dealing with duplicate content is meta robots, when used with the values "noindex, follow." Commonly called Meta Noindex,Follow and technically known as content=”noindex,follow” this meta robots tag can be added to the HTML head of each individual page that should be excluded from a search engine's index.

General format:

...[other code that might be in your document's HTML head]...
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow">
...[other code that might be in your document's HTML head]...

The meta robots tag allows search engines to crawl the links on a page but keeps them from including those links in their indices. It's important that the duplicate page can still be crawled, even though you're telling Google not to index it, because Google explicitly cautions against restricting crawl access to duplicate content on your website. (Search engines like to be able to see everything in case you've made an error in your code. It allows them to make a [likely automated] "judgment call" in otherwise ambiguous situations.)

Using meta robots is a particularly good solution for duplicate content issues related to pagination.
Preferred domain and parameter handling in Google Search Console

Google Search Console allows you to set the preferred domain of your site (i.e. http://yoursite.com instead of http://www.yoursite.com) and specify whether Googlebot should crawl various URL parameters differently (parameter handling).

Depending on your URL structure and the cause of your duplicate content issues, setting up either your preferred domain or parameter handling (or both!) may provide a solution.

The main drawback to using parameter handling as your primary method for dealing with duplicate content is that the changes you make only work for Google. Any rules put in place using Google Search Console will not affect how Bing or any other search engine's crawlers interpret your site; you'll need to use the webmaster tools for other search engines in addition to adjusting the settings in Search Console.
Additional methods for dealing with duplicate content

    Maintain consistency when linking internally throughout a website. For example, if a webmaster determines that the canonical version of a domain is www.example.com/, then all internal links should go to http://www.example.com/example rather than http://example.com/page (notice the absence of www).

    When syndicating content, make sure the syndicating website adds a link back to the original content and not a variation on the URL. (Check out our Whiteboard Friday episode on dealing with duplicate content for more information.)

    To add an extra safeguard against content scrapers stealing SEO credit for your content, it's wise to add a self-referential rel=canonical link to your existing pages. This is a canonical attribute that points to the URL it's already on, the point being to thwart the efforts of some scrapers.

    Self-referential canonical links can safeguard against duplication caused by scrapers
    A self-referential rel=canonical link: The URL specified in the rel=canonical tag is the same as the current page URL.

    While not all scrapers will port over the full HTML code of their source material, some will. For those that do, the self-referential rel=canonical tag will ensure your site's version gets credit as the "original" piece of content.

What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?

The majority of web traffic is driven by the major commercial search engines, Google, Bing, and Yahoo!. Although social media and other types of traffic can generate visits to your website, search engines are the primary method of navigation for most Internet users. This is true whether your site provides content, services, products, information, or just about anything else. Search engines are unique in that they provide targeted traffic—people looking for what you offer. Search engines are the roadways that make this happen. If search engines cannot find your site, or add your content to their databases, you miss out on incredible opportunities to drive traffic to your site. Search queries—the words that users type into the search box—carry extraordinary value. Experience has shown that search engine traffic can make (or break) an organization's success. Targeted traffic to a website can provide publicity, revenue, and exposure like no other channel of marketing. Investing in SEO can have an exceptional rate of return compared to other types of marketing and promotion.

SEO work is included for all clients of CSI. We also have SEO premium contracts for purchase which provide deeper and/or more specific SEO efforts than what is included in our basic retainer. SEO focuses on growing visibility in organic (non-paid) search engine results. It is a long-term play that pays tremendous dividends because once you begin coming up in the rankings it provides you with essentially free traffic. It's 100% profit, and differs greatly from doing things like paid search (i.e., Google adwords) or paid Facebook advertising. SEO encompasses both the technical and creative elements required to improve rankings, drive traffic, and increase awareness in search engines. There are many aspects to SEO, from the words on your page to the way other sites link to you on the web. Sometimes SEO is simply a matter of making sure your site is structured in a way that search engines understand.

Hashtags: Using them Properly

One of the surest ways to expose yourself as a social newbie is to use hashtags incorrectly. Take a moment and visualize this. When you use hashtags in a boldly incorrect way, you appear in the online world like the drunk guy dancing at the wedding; yearning for attention "look at me!, look at me!". You think you're cool, but you really look silly. Just like social graces in the real world, there is an unspoken manner of engagement in cyber world. Those cool little tic-tac-toe sharpies for example are governed by a bit of online etiquette. Ever been to a formal dinner and witnessed someone proudly tuck their napkin into the neckline of their shirt like a neanderthal? Slurp their drink? Begin eating their salad with their desert fork? Or what about the ones who try and convince you that belching out loud is the sign of a good meal or some other fortune. 

Many businesses, and important causes use hashtags effectively, and as intended. But Jay-Z, Adam Levine, Scarlett Johansen, and a long list of celebrities use hashtags too. They're famous -- they can pretty much do whatever they want and appear cool. 

Somewhere along the line people have jumped on the "cool" bandwagon hashtagging #rainintheforecasttoday #differentfartsmells and full on sentences like #iloveitwhenthestorehasmyshoesize. They have gone hashtag crazy, shoving them down our throats with every chance they get. This SNL short emulates these digitally uncultured marauders perfectly. 

If you are not using hashtags publicly, then why are you using them at all? The whole point of hashtags is to group similar information to an idea or cause so that a tremendously large group of people can easily find that information. Unless you are a celebrity, author, or person of interest making public posts, it's kind of pointless to using them save for that occasional post where you do it to add a bit of context. Most of the world protects their privacy when using facebook, instagram, and other social platforms. They have a set group of people in their social circle that they trust; not much different than their real life circle of friends. It rarely benefits you to mix your work and private life; at least not without some sort of privacy filtering. If you are not thinking about your social platforms this way  you are breaking etiquette, but that's a subject for another completely different post. 
So what is the right way to use hashtags? 
First off, do you know what the hashtag you want to use actually means? Don’t make any assumptions here; make certain you’re absolutely clear on what the hashtag is, that you've done some research to see if it's original or what comes up when you use it, what it means to its intended audience, and any subtextual clues that you may be missing. Looks can be deceiving, so if you’re even slightly in doubt, don’t hesitate to do some research before you make a commitment. There’s no better example of how this can blow up in your face than DiGiorno’s tweet, which used the hashtag #WhyIStayed to promote its pizza. On the surface, the hashtag looks innocent enough, but again, you can’t make that assumption. The hashtag was actually being used by survivors of domestic abuse to raise awareness and support for other victims—making DiGiorno’s marketing stunt appear insensitive and offensive, not to mention foolish.
Is the tag (or tags) you are using relevant to your post? It should be, and it should be obvious. Is your hashtag clear, or does it require people to figure out some sort of cryptic message? One word hashtags are nearly always guilty of being cryptic. Why not just state your message with a clear hashtag or add additional ones to convey a clear message, instead of keeping the world guessing?
You should consider how your personal (or business) identitity uses hashtags. For example, let’s say you’ve found two or three hashtags that genuinely fit your intended message, and you commit them to a single post. This is fantastic. But what happens if you use those same hashtags again in your next post? And the next one? And the one after that? Reusing the same hashtag strategies over and over can also turn your audience off, so be sure to switch things up and keep it fresh.
The Most Important Question: Are You Using Hashtags for Hashtags’ Sake?
There’s one big question you need to answer. Are you using hashtags just for the sake of using hashtags? This is probably the biggest characteristic of a social newbie. That is; are you without clear direction or strategy, and only capitalizing on the idea of hashtags because you think it will support your personal (or business) identity? If so, you need to take a step back. Hashtags can be valuable, but only if you use them appropriately and strategically.

Effective Online Marketing for Nonprofits

Most nonprofits realize the value of good online marketing and social media integration. The benefits are stupendous to an organization's branding, mission, culture, and fundraising. Where many fall short is in the delivery. Many organizations skimp on budget allocated toward marketing and have volunteers with little or no experience running the online and social media marketing. The result is amateurish social media accounts that don't reflect the integrity of the organization, and the brunt of the marketing is done by simple posts to the accounts. Ineffective logos, typos, and grammatical errors run rampant. A true online marketing plan handled by a professional starts with clean professionally designed social accounts, properly curated and meaningful content free of errors, and a percentage of social posts, website updates, and email blasts, all of which are tied into in-person grassroots events. The "results of this "cross-pollination" between online marketing and grassroots marketing is exponential. 

Another area that nonprofits struggle with in their marketing endeavors is "bureaucratic creep". 
Bureaucratic creep: the slow growth of bureaucracy, referring to how processes and systems tend to generate more and more rules and paperwork until that process itself takes up all of the time and no time is left to actually accomplish the goal. It comes from the verb 'to creep' meaning to move very slowly and quietly and secretly.
This over-planning, over-analyzing behavior causes organizations to spend excessive lengths of time deliberating on the details and conceptualization of their websites and social media plans to their own detriment. Most nonprofits are not rolling out "Steve Jobs like" technologies and software, therefore there is no need to go overboard with conceptualizing your online marketing. Get your ideas together, and let a professional handle the planning and execution. Lean on your internal team to contribute content and do what they do best in their natural positions, not to waste 3 months deliberating on the website setup. 

Some common mistakes nonprofits make in their marketing:
  • They do not have social media accounts, they don't list them on their website or leverage them properly.
  • On the opposite extreme they rely only on social media posts to drive their marketing, and do not use press releases, email marketing, or any of the other powerful marketing tools available today.
  • They don't have a solid online brand identity: Brands are Psychology, Art, and Science brought together. Brands convey a uniform quality, credibility and experience. Brands are valuable. A brand is a nonprofit's face to the world, and we maximize it by harnessing the power of social media and technology. It is the organization's name, how it is visually expressed, and how it is extended through communications. A brand is also how the company is perceived by its customers including the associations and inherent value they place on it. It is a kind of promise. It is a set of fundamental principles as understood by anyone who comes into contact with it.
  • They do not leverage the power of web video.
  • Their site, and social accounts are not designed well. They are amateurish.
  • They are not employing "viral" marketing strategies in their affairs.

Gorilla Marketing for Youth Sports Leagues

Contact Us to Get Started
Football, Soccer, Baseball, Lacrosse, Basketball, Little League -- in the old days teams were sponsored by places like Johnny's Pizza, and everyone practiced and gathered informally for a weekly game. Kid's wore donated t-shirts for uniforms, equipment was cheap, and field time was free. Flyers were distributed in schools and parents spread the word about registration by word of mouth. It's a different era now. It's very costly to run any of these sports leagues, and because society is so busy it's often difficult to get the word out through traditional methods.

All sports leagues have one thing in common: with rare exception, they have not met their full potential due to poor or lack of marketing. They put up banners in town and resort to word of mouth for registration which isn't sufficient to reach everyone. If you're in the circle you're in the know, but if you're outside of the circle or just moved into the area you may have no idea for example that your town even has a youth football or wrestling team. Many organizations are run by volunteers who aren't marketing experts, and as a result they have rudimentary websites full of typos and grammatical errors, absent social marketing engagement or social accounts that are set up incorrectly, no email program, and they are far from professional. Others have fancy websites with all sorts of snazzy graphics flying in and out on the home page, but they are nothing more than pretty representations of the organization and do nothing to drive marketing or engage their community. A few others market to limited email lists, but fall well short of a professionally run, full-blown email marketing campaign. Believe it or not there are still leagues out there that don't even have a professional web site, use Gmail or AOL for their announcements, and ascribe to using free 3rd party services like WIX, League Athletics, or Stackvarsity.com to host their website. These type of websites serve little purpose other than having a stamp on the internet.
