Guest blogging is a time-honored tradition on the Internet and it’s been a great way to acquire inbound links since the time links became important to SEO.
When Google came down hard on links from content farms and other spammy sources with a combination of algorithm updates and a wave of manual actions, guest blogging became the go-to method for link builders around the world.
Thanks to its relative ease and scalability, guest posting remains the preferred tactic for link acquisition despite Matt Cutts’ statements about it a few years back.
However, that doesn’t mean guest posting is immune to the law of diminishing returns. When you have thousands of link builders from all over the planet constantly contacting webmasters for guest posting opportunities, the landscape is bound to change over time.
Site owners now realize that they’re being targeted for links and not for editorial reasons. As a result, a lot of high-authority sites have adapted to the situation by making guest posting guidelines more stringent.
In some cases, site owners take advantage of the status quo by agreeing to receive payments in exchange for guest posting opportunities.
In this post, we’ll take a look at the reasons why a lot of outreach campaigns have low success rates. We’ll also discuss how you can significantly improve your chances of securing guest posting opportunities without using fancy-schamncy techniques and expensive tools.
In our experience, successful outreach for high-authority sites begins with the development of better content ideas.
Quick Backstory

Let’s start with a disclaimer: there’s really no rocket science involved in our agency’s link building process. If anything, we tend to stick more to the fundamental practices of SEO.

START A 14 DAY TRIAL!
However, we do take pride in polishing every aspect of our process to make it as effective as some of the more advanced tactics out there.
This applies to the fiber of our operations and that includes the conceptualization of topics we propose to outreach targets.
The idea hit us in 2015 when I pitched to speak at SMX West in San Jose. This is one of the world’s most prolific SEO events and being selected is notoriously difficult.
The organizers would open up some sessions for speaker pitches and provide overviews of what each one will be about. Aspiring speakers can then craft specific topics based on the overviews and submit a form with details on how their presentations would go.
I believe a big reason why I got in was the topic I chose. The session’s title was Creating Dazzling Content & Ensuring It’s Seen: Step By Step From The Audit To Analytics.
Obviously, this was a content marketing session and I anticipated that most pitches would focus on the content creation and promotion aspects of it.
Those are sexier facets of content marketing and most people know a thing or two about them, making them easier to prepare a pitch for.
What most people probably didn’t pay attention to was the fact that the theme says from audit to analytics towards the end. If you’ve been doing SEO for a while now, you’ll know that analytics isn’t necessarily the easiest thing to talk about.
That goes double for conferences: people tend to space out when a speaker starts talking about numbers. Being aware of that gave me exactly the opening I needed: I knew that if I pitched to talk about the analytics of content marketing, my entry would instantly stand out and it would be met with little to no resistance.
Analytics is something that few marketers specialize in and the number of people who can talk about content analytics comfortably is even fewer.
When the crowd zigs, you should zag.
A couple of weeks after sending in my pitch, I got this email and the rest was history:
Received outreach email
Being a hipster with topics worked out so well that we started applying it to our outreach operations. These days, we no longer send out generic, template-based messages that get tagged by spam filters or get ignored by webmasters who’ve seen a few too many guest posting requests.
We do our best to submit topics that suit the target sites well, yet the webmasters have never seen before. As we got more comfortable with that, we noticed that our outreach success rate increased to better than 50% in some campaigns.
What You’ll Need

Achieving better-than-average outreach success requires better-than-average resources at your disposal. Here’s what you need to have if you’re serious at significantly improving your outreach batting average:
A Subject Matter Expert – This is your most crucial resource. This could be the writer himself or an industry insider acting as a consultant. The subject matter expert’s job is to identify content gaps within a target site and come up with ideas that would resonate with the webmaster.
SEOQuake – Great, free tool for exporting SERPs to a CSV file.
Microsoft Excel – For opening and organizing link prospects.
NetPeak Checker – For bulk-checking domain authority and another link KPIs.
Basic knowledge of Google search operators – For finding relevant sites that are likely to let you guest post. It also helps check your prospect shortlist’s content library, allowing you to figure out what topics they haven’t written about yet.
You can sub out NetPeak with pretty much any link intelligence tool or an aggregator of several tools. We just happen to think it’s the most convenient to use.
The same goes for SEOQuake. Other tools can be used to export search results and their corresponding metrics, so feel free to use another tool if you’re not a fan.
The Link Prospecting Process

If you already have an efficient process for finding dozens – if not hundreds – of qualified link prospects, feel free to skip this section. If you’re still refining your tactics for finding contextually relevant sites with good degrees of authority and willingness to accommodate guest posters, feel free to follow these simple steps:
1. Go to Google Search Settings and set it to never display instant results. Then, set the number of search results per page to 100.

2. Go back to normal Google Search and type one of these special queries (search operators):
Intitle:[keyword] “guest post”
Intitle:[keyword] “write for us”
“keyword” “guest post”
“keyword” “guest author”
“keyword” “become an author”
keyword” “become an contributor”
If you’re not familiar with how search operators work, they’re basically filters within queries to narrow down the results you get. The operator intitle basically tells Google that the keyword accompanying it must be present in the title tags of the results it displays.
The words in quotation marks, on the other hand, signify that the search results shown should only point to pages that mention that combination of terms in that specific order.
3. The SERP should yield 100 listings – or less if there aren’t enough in Google’s index which suits the specifications of the search operator.
4. If you’ve installed SEOQuake in your browser, you’ll see that the organic listings will have their ranking numbers affixed to them. You’ll also see a few new options on Google at the top left section. One of them will say “Export to CSV.” Hit that one and save the data.

5. Open the file with Excel. Right now, all the data in each row will be in one cell like this:
google excel file
6. To address this, highlight column A and go to Excel’s Data tab.
7. Click on Text to Column. Choose Delimited, then, choose Semicolon in the next page.

8. Click Finish and the data should now be arranged neatly into separate columns.

9. You can now extract all the URLs and check their respective domain authorities with NetPeak or other tools. In our agency, we usually target sites that have Das of 25 or higher. However, you can go for sites with lower DAs as long as they have legitimate followings and strong Alexa numbers.
10. Sort the URLs according to DA. Remove the ones that fall below your minimum requirements.
11. Manually check each site that remains in your list for duplication or signs of being spammy. You can also check if they’ve possibly been penalized with tools like SEMRush which will give you ideas on whether they’ve lost significant organic traffic recently or not.
12. Once you have your final list, go to each one and check the requirements for guest posting and the site’s editorial guidelines. You’ll want to add a column in your Excel sheet with notes on what each one specifically requires.
Once you have your shortlist, it’s time to start crafting topics that will catch the webmasters’ respective attentions.
Crafting Topics and Identifying Content Gaps

Most link builders will approach webmasters with a list of topics that have direct contextual relevance to the keywords they’re optimizing for. While this is generally a good idea, a better way to go about it would be to create the topics after you’ve studied the prospect site closely.
Trying to scale and automate your outreach campaign too much usually leads to the following flaws which kill your success rate:
The topic has already been written about
The outreach email did not reflect adherence the webmaster’s guest posting guidelines
The email looks like it was blasted to dozens, if not hundreds, of prospect sites
The email is too long and poorly written eliciting TL:DR responses from recipients
To avoid these scenarios, we follow this protocol when crafting topics and reaching out to webmasters:
1. List Your Target Keywords
List about five target keywords that bear strong relevance to your site’s own content themes. You can include your main target keyword, but make sure to include very specific terms that are inherent in that niche. Make sure the keywords are distinct from each other and not just permutations of the same phrase.
For instance, if you’re building links for an SEO agency, your list might include the following terms:
SEO
Link building
Technical SEO
Local SEO
Web analytics
Notice that only the first one is directly about general SEO. The succeeding four are keywords that pertain to subtopics under the SEO umbrella.
These keywords will be the basis for the article ideas you’ll be formulating. The ideas will depend on the results you get from step 2.
2. See What’s Been Written
Use the site:www.example.com “keyword” search operator to see what articles have already been written in the prospect site about your desired keywords.
Let’s say you wanted to guest post on Convince & Convert, a popular digital marketing website with a blog that’s well-respected throughout the world – and a domain authority of 76.
An SEO agency’s site will receive quite a boost with a link from them, but you’ll have to pique their interest with your topics before they grant you the privilege of guest posting. If you offer to write about something they haven’t covered yet, you’ll greatly increase your chances.
As seen in the screenshot below, trying to land a guest posting gig with a general SEO topic won’t be easy as there’s been a fair bit of buildup for this topic over time. Using the search operator site:www.convinceandconvert.com “SEO,” we can see what the site has already covered:

As mentioned earlier, the key is to zig when everyone zags. As every other guest poster tries to pitch general SEO topics, you can pitch about more specific things such as link building and analytics. Let’s put that theory to the test by applying the same search operator to more specific keywords:
Using site:convinceandconvert.com “link building”

Notice that only the first and third results are directly about link building. The other articles mention it, but are not directly about it. This is where your subject matter expert comes in . You can show him the results and he can come up with a topic that’s distinct yet complementary to what’s already there.
When you use the site:example.com “keyword” search operator, you’ll be able to determine whether or not the target site is willing to host an article about your keyword.
In this case, there are pre-existing articles on link building, so it would be logical to assume they’ll allow more guest posts about it. The search operator also allows you to see what’s been written so you can avoid being redundant to what’s already there.
Here’s another example: the site SmashingMagazine.com has a DA of 88 and is generally about web design and development with an emphasis on UX.
If you’re building links for an SEO agency’s site, you’d love to guest post on a site like this because of its topical relevance, very high DA and the exposure to its robust audience. Let’s try a head-on approach and see what comes up when you run a site:smashingmagazine.com “SEO” query:

Notice how the first page is a mix of listings that talk about general SEO topics, technical SEO and web design/development in relation to SEO. The site does not seem to stray much into the realm of off-page SEO and other related facets of optimization.
This could mean one of two things: that they stick closely to their core content themes or that they need people like you to write about topics other than what they already have.
Again, your subject matter expert should be the one taking a look at the content libraries of these sites and identifying possible topics that haven’t been written about.
3. Reaching Out to the Prospect Sites
Once you’ve identified the possible topics to write about, it’s time to reach out to the webmasters of your target sites. In most cases, you’ll be asked to fill out an online form or send in an email. Read the instructions carefully and don’t skip any bullets or numbers.
Some sites require topics when you first reach out to them while others want to see the first drafty of the content piece off the bat. Sometimes, a detail as small as a formatting error on a subject line can disqualify a submission from consideration.
For our agency’s part, we like keeping outreach emails direct to the point. We make it a point to be polite, but we keep formalities to a minimum.
The recipients of outreach emails know what you’re after and there’s hardly a point kissing up to them. Flattery may earn you the webmaster’s good will, but it’s the quality of your content ideas that get you results.
Here’s an example of successful outreach emails:
ShoutMeLoud.com (DA 54)
This one was a simple case of finding what areas of SEO this site hasn’t written about. In this instance, it’s link building.

Straightforward pitch, quick answer. Simple.
Smashing Magazine (DA 88)
This one was a little tougher. My first round of SEO-related topic ideas were declined because the site was veering away from SEO and wants to write more UX-related content.
I revised my topics to ones that intersect between UX and analytics and I was lucky enough to be given consideration.

Here’s the response:

Not the easiest topics to wrote about, but that’s what a subject matter expert is for.
Convince & Convert
This one went surprisingly well. The Convince & Convert blog wants to focus more on social media and mobile marketing topics, but I was also given the green light to write about more SEO-oriented subjects.

One pitch, five opportunities to guest post.
OnExtraPixel (DA 61)
I had to crop this one due to the fact that there were a lot of fields to fill in their form. Nonetheless, here are the topics:

It took a little time, but I eventually received this response:

You may notice that in this particular niche, you can get a lot of easy opportunities by writing about things that are not quite considered common knowledge. Expert-level technical SEO and analytics, in particular, seem to always do well.
Of course, you’ll have to have a pretty good SEO specialist to create these topics and a writer who can deliver on the topic’s implicit promises. If the subject matter expert and the writer are one person, all the better.
Overall, our success rate for this campaign was at 54%. I believe that’s pretty decent since I talk a lot with industry peers and the average seems to be at the 15% mark. In low to moderate competition verticals, you should have a better success rate than mine. S
EO is particularly challenging to build links for since webmasters have a pretty good idea that you’re chasing links when you volunteer to guest post. In less competitive niches, prospect sites are usually grateful that someone would want to contribute.
Ultimately, the key is having the cooperation of a subject matter expert. As long as you’ve got that, you should be able to come up with great content ideas that will appeal to webmasters.

3 Things You Must Do Before You Submit To Article Directories

To all writers and non-writers out there, now is the time to start digging up those creative writing skills back.
With modern communication technology comes the popularity of information-based marketing, which is one of the oldest and most effective techniques in getting targeted prospects to sites and converting them into buyers. This is why article writing, submissions and publications are also getting popular.
There are already many tools that people can use to make the process of distributing their articles more easily. Though this is invaluable in getting the contents more exposure, which is only half of the story.
Let us take a look first at the common mistakes that some people make before submitting their contents to article directories:
1. Confusing the reason to promote the articles with the reason to write them.
In article writing, there are three key benefits why you are promoting them; branding, lead generation and promotion, which are all part of your optimization efforts.
But there is only one reason why you write an article, and that is to inform your audience. If the article is not focused on this primary and most important purpose, it will fail to achieve the three promotion benefits because no one will be interested in reading them.
You need to figure out first how to get people to read what is in your article, then make them click on your resource box. You can achieve this by producing better contents.
2. Failing to maximize the promotional opportunities of article marketing.
You may know already that your articles can help you generate additional links back to your site. But do you know that you can get more visitors and better search engine results from that same articles?
Mention keywords at strategic places. Just be sure not to overdo them. Some are even using anchor texts which is also an effective method. But it is important to know that majority of the directories are not able to support this.
Remember that is not only about the links back to your site. Part of doing well in your article marketing is getting picked up by publishers with a large number of audiences and gaining the ability of leveraging other brands because of the quality of your work. Better search engine results also are great benefits.
But these things do not put much money in your pocket. There are other factors that can turn your article marketing efforts into an opportunity that can boost your earnings. Not just increase the number of visitors to your site.
Start out with a plan and see to it that your article will serve the function that you intended it to have.
3. Publishing content that does not help your readers.
Maybe in the process of writing articles, you are thinking that all that is you wanted is links back to your site. And any visitors it can generate are fine.
Guess what? Not all article banks and directories are going to accept your content automatically. Oftentimes, they have some guidelines and specifications on the articles that they are accepting.
You can double the number of sites you can submit to by writing articles that the directories want to share with other people. All it takes is one publisher with a hundred thousand readers to increase your potential audience overnight.
Write the articles that publishers want in their publications if you want your article marketing to work the most effective way for you. This also means you have to obey the standard guidelines, spell checks, researching on a good topic and even hiring a writer to produce a good content on your behalf.
In the end, it is all really a matter of choice on your part. You can start getting a little exposure from increased links back but on a very basic level. Or enjoy massive exposure from a little extra time making quality contents.
It will be your choice. You may not be aware of the fact that an article submitted on directories is not meant to have the same level of exposure as highly-targeted content ones geared on a narrow group of people.
Learn the difference between these two and it will surely help you know what kinds of articles to write and to submit.

Bitcoin crypto currency /computer mining hardware
July 15, 2018
0

When selectinging the right equipment, you need to reconsider the three main categories of Bitcoin mining hardware. Each of these groups is more powerful and achieving that the previous ones. You need to understand how Bitcoin works to select the proper tools and equipment. We are going to help you set up everything and help you decide which hardware is the best for you and which one will accommodate your needs when you are performing the mining process.

What is a hash rate?

This represents a number of calculations your hardware can perform every second. In the mining process, you are required to solve mathematical problems, and the hash rate is measured in megahashes, gigahashes, and terahashes per second. The higher your speed is, the more likely you will be able to solve problems and transaction blocks.

Energy consumption

bitcoin compWe all know that computer hardware isn’t energy friendly and especially if you are using an advanced equipment for Bitcoin mining. So, when you are choosing a device, you should be aware that power is measured in watts. Keep in mind that you don’t want to spend all your earned money on electricity to mine coins that are not worth it. You need to determine how many hashes you are getting for every watt consumed. To perform this, divide the hash number by the number of watts. Keep in mind your electricity bill at the end of every month and try to find the balance.

Mining Hardware

There are three main categories, and we will explore each of them.

CPU/GPU Bitcoin Mining

This is the least dominant category and represents your computer. In theory, you can use the computer that you have to mine Bitcoins, but, in reality, it will be too slow compared to powerful machines that are on the market. Of course, you could boost up your graphics, and it is designed for advanced mathematical polygons which are required in high – end video games. You can purchase ATI and Nvidia because they are the best on the market and they can cost hundreds of dollars.

FPGA Bitcoin Mining

The full name of FPGA is Field Programmable Gate Array, and that is an integrated circuit which needs to configurated after being built. The mining hardware manufacturers have an opportunity to purchase these chips in volumes and then prepare them for Bitcoin mining before they are put into equipment. Considering that they are customized for mining, they provide excellent performance and outstanding results. You can get 750 Megahashes per second, but keep in mind that this is the high – end.

 ASIC Bitcoin Miners

ASIC is the most potent tool for Bitcoin mining, it has only one purpose, to mine coins at remarkable speed, with moderately low electricity consumption. In other words, this is a dream come true for every Bitcoin miners. It can produce rate between 5 and 500 Gigahashes per second, and some vendors are even offering ASIC devices which can reach 2 Terahashes per second.

10 Easy Ways to Earn Money from Facebook

Facebook is a household name around the world. This social networking platform has over 2.2 billion registered Monthly Active Users (MAUs) and the number is growing rapidly.

While Facebook allows you to stay in touch with relatives and friends, it also offers excellent opportunities for people to make money. There are several direct and indirect ways by which you can earn money from Facebook in 2018.

All you need is a Facebook account and some ingenuity to cash on the world’s favorite social media platform.

Why Facebook

Facebook ranks as the world’s third most popular website, surpassed only by search engine Google and its video sharing channel, YouTube. This means, whatever you do on Facebook has immense impact around the world.

Realizing that people also need to make money through social networking, Facebook has launched several tools that allow people to earn. The website has global reach and allows posting text, pictures, video and audio content for registered users.

How to Earn Money from Facebook

Considering the above facts, here are 10 beast and ways and means that can help you make money with Facebook. You can use one or multiple ways to make money from Facebook as per your convenience.

Refer: 3 Best Google Online Jobs

1. Facebook Marketplace

Facebook Marketplace is a free facility offered by the social networking website. It allows you to list various items, services and deals and promote them directly within the Facebook community.

The service allows you to reach thousands of people through your own social network while allowing Facebook friends to notify others about what you are selling. You can sell any item or service that meets Facebook Community Guidelines.

Similar to classifieds, the buyer can contact you, inspect the goods and finalize price, shipping and other details.

However, if you have an eye for unique stuff, you can make more money. A lot of items sold on Facebook Marketplace are rare and can fetch higher value in brick-and-mortar stores. Buy the stuff and resell it either online or through stores.

2. Affiliate Marketing on Facebook

Affiliate marketing is a system by which you promote a product, brand, service or company through a Facebook page or groups to your contacts. Thousands of merchants including Amazon, Flipkart, VCommission, Shaadi.com and many other pay you to promote their products.

You can do so by joining affiliate marketing programs offered by these organizations and posting their content on your Facebook page. Every time an interested party looks up the advertisement or content you have posted and becomes its customer, you stand to make some money.

3. Advertise Your Business on FB

Facebook has emerged as the single largest common platform on which every business- from home based ventures to the largest banks and consumer goods companies have a presence.

I have seen many common people are promoting their training, consultancy, selling home-made products or even custom-made dresses and jewelry through Facebook business. There are multiple options to promote your product on Facebook.

You can also interact with customers through the instant messenger service available on Facebook.

4. Create Facebook Content

Facebook encourages people who have unique skills or knowledge to take time and create digital content that can be sold through an app called 22Social. Content that can be sold includes PDF files, audios and videos.

Facebook also provides an excellent online tutorial for people who wish to monetize their content using 22Social and the social media platform.

All you need is a Facebook page, a free 22Social account, verified PayPal account and free or paid account to digital hosting including Dropbox, Vimeo, YouTube, Google Drive and SoundCloud, among others.

5. Earn by Selling Facebook Likes

This is a very debatable way to make money with Facebook. There are forums that support selling ‘likes’ for a Facebook page while others deem the system as illegal. Regardless, there are several marketers who will pay you to send a Facebook page to your ‘friends’.

Your friends have to simply click the ’like’ button on that Facebook page. According to various reports, including one published by National Public Radio (NPR), people charge as much as US$ 75 to give 1,000 likes for any Facebook page. Others advertize the service on sites like Fiverr.

6. Influencer Marketing on Facebook

Influencer marketing is not for anyone who has a large following on Facebook. Indeed, most people do not permit people to ‘follow’ them on Facebook because their content can land them in danger, if it is dealing with sensitive issues like politics and religion.

However, influencer marketers look for people with large followings and huge network of friends. They offer money to promote a brand or ideology through your Facebook page.

The system came under scrutiny of American and other law enforcement agencies after it was revealed that some sort of ‘influencer marketing’ could have been done by certain countries during election campaigns in the US and elsewhere.

Offering your Facebook following for influencer marketing for brands of products is however harmless.

7. Earn from Facebook Ads

Facebook Ads is a facility extended by the social media giant to corporate and individual users. It allows you to create and pot advertisements of various sorts that target a specific group of people based on age, location and other demographic parameters.

If you have a small home based business, you can make money by advertizing through Facebook Ads. The social media firm offers free and paid packages for Facebook Ads, depending upon your usage and target audience.

Additionally, you can also offer services of posting advertisements on behalf of businesses who wish to remain anonymous. Several large companies looking at hiring staff do not divulge their identity.

8. Manage Facebook Accounts

Managing social media accounts, especially Facebook page of a company or celebrity is very lucrative work from home option. There are scores of social media management jobs you can find online.

These jobs that require you to manage Facebook pages can be done fulltime or even part-time to make extra money. They are advertised under various designations like Social Media Manager, Facebook Assistant, Social Media Specialist and myriad others.

9. Facebook Groups

People open group pages on Facebook for various reasons. There are two categories of Facebook groups- Open and Closed. In an ‘Open’ group, people can join anytime. The other is a “Closed” group where membership is by invitation or application only.

Opening a Facebook group enables you to work as micro-influencer or a cause, political party or business. You can invite friends to become members of the group and invite others too. Upon reaching the desired level of membership, you can ‘close’ the group. A ‘Closed’ group allows you to influence members about anything.

10. Direct Advertizing

A small business can post advertisements directly on a regular Facebook page to attract customers. These advertisements can be about employment, classifieds, products and services. Many small businesses use Facebook purely as a forum to post their advertisements.

A lot of jobseekers also browse Facebook pages of companies to find employment opportunities.

In Conclusion

Facebook allows linking with various apps that allow you to open an online store or get memberships. However, the company is currently reviewing its policies governing apps as well as security levels of apps after reports of data leaks rocked the world in March 2018.

Hence, we prefer not to comment on these money-making apps that can be linked with Facebook. As we can see from the highlighted examples, it is very easy to earn money from Facebook. All you need is the inclination and time to cash-in on the social media platform.

Ultimate Guide to Twitter Ad Best Practices

Whether you’re new to Twitter or a pro, creating Twitter ads is guaranteed to yield many benefits for you as a business.

Twitter is an interest-based platform. People follow brands or certain personalities because they’re interested in a certain topic. Therefore, observe your audience first of all and then you can develop a strategy of what kind of tweets you want to send.

Do you want to send content of your own or do you want to piggyback on existing content on twitter?

With the twitter ads interface, you can create campaigns on Twitter that align with your business goals, pay for only the specific actions you want and track results over time.

If you are just getting started with Twitter ads for your business, here is a guide Twitter ad best practices.

 

Have a Goal

First, think about what the goal of your advertising campaign is.

Do you want to gain followers, capture email addresses or drive app downloads? Whatever it is, Twitter ads can help you reach it.

Let’s say you are a camera retailer who wants to drive customers to your website, select the option of website clicks or conversions.

Twitter will guide you through the process and provide you with creative templates that have been optimized for whatever you’re trying to do.

Setting precise goals will give you direction as you in Twitter advertising.

 

Timing and Frequency is Key

You may be asking, how often I should write a tweet?

Do not overdo it by tweeting too much. This is because people will engage with you and it will be enough for you to send the same tweet once every two or three days.

You should also be aware of the time you send your tweet or ad so that you can optimize your campaign.

The first traffic starts around 6 or 7 a.m. and then there is a small peek at lunch again.

However, if you want to reach the widest audience, tweet in the period between 6 and 10 p.m. and you’ll have the most views and best responses to your ad.

 

Targeting

Targeting basically represents who you can actually target with your ad or your tweet.

Make sure you use the precise targeting options to make sure your tweet reaches the right people at the right moment.

Targeting options on Twitter include keywords, interests and followers or tailored audiences.

Keywords

Keywords are when you can actually jump into the conversations of your customers. Twitter involves a person actually having a live conversation.

For instance, if a person is talking about weight loss and you have a weight loss product, you could put up an ad and have your ad or your tweet show up when that person says they want to lose a couple pounds.

If you have a travel product and maybe a person says they need a vacation, you could target that specific keyword and jump into the conversation.

Keywords also take place in the search bar on Twitter.

When someone is searching for a specific keyword, you can have your ad show up as well.

If there’s someone tweeting or searching on Twitter about your company or about a topic or product that you have to offer, make sure that you’re there.

Run a keyword targeted campaign using at least 30 to 50 keywords. You can add usernames, hashtags and keyword phrases into any keyword Promoted Tweet campaign.

Just make sure you keep it extremely relevant.

Followers

When it comes to followers, you’re able to actually target the people who are following other people.

Think about your particular niche, are there leaders or people that are just making it happen in your niche?

If you have such people that have big Twitter followings and you have products that are similar and you’re providing value, you can actually target all of the people following those leaders.

It is a great way to put your content in front of the right market.

Interests

If you are an entrepreneur or in a business field like authors or if you are into fitness, you can target by interest.

This is because it is broader and will open you up on to the millions of people on Twitter and you’ll be able to connect with all of them.

If you are in a situation where you want more traffic and a lot of clicks, then interest is definitely the way to go.

 

Set a Budget

Twitter ads help make the most of your marketing dollars because you only pay for the actions you want. You need to have a budget for your Twitter advertising cost.

If you are a camera retailer, you’ll only pay when someone clicks on the link to your website.

If you have a new brand and not a very big budget, you can be successful on Twitter by using existing content on twitter like hashtags.

There are a lot of events happening on Twitter and those hashtags act as a brand.

You can start by using them and will target people discussing the hashtags. You don’t always need to create your own copy and your own hashtags to begin with.

If you already have a brand and a huge budget, then you may want everyone to know about your latest product.

Twitter has a platform called firstview and basically what they are offering is doing 24 hours advertising.

Big brands can just buy a premium of the firstview and get the first Promoted Tweet.

People will open their app on Twitter and the first video that they’re going to see is the video from your brand.

You also need to bid and budget competitively. Your estimated audience reach and suggested bid can change depending on which niche you’re targeting is.

If you want to remain competitive with your bid in each specific campaign, keep in mind that you’ll only pay about a penny more than the second-highest bidder.

Adjust your campaign daily until you find an audience reach that you’re comfortable with.

 

Proactively Pause Low Performers

You don’t want to waste impressions on low performing keywords or ads and you want to be able to allow as much of your budget as possible to high performing ads and keywords.

Make sure that you go through it each day and optimize.

After your campaign is up and running, twitter ‘s reporting tools will help you analyze the metrics tied to your goals so you can easily measure and optimize your ads.

 

Optimize Your Tweets

Also, plan to have four to six direct response tweets.

Ensure you have a clear call to action and a URL at the end of the tweet.

Do not include any other clickable links in the tweet such as usernames or hashtags and make sure that you include photos because they have higher engagement.

 

Twitter Ad Best Practices for Your Business

Discussed above are some tips for optimizing the Twitter ad best practices for business success.

Twitter ads are an easy and powerful way to take your business to the next level.

Rather than just text, always attach a kind of visual or ideal even video in your ads.

Make sure you understand exactly who you can target on Twitter, the different types of campaigns you can run and all of the different ad types that you can use to your benefit.

Do not be among those who don’t utilize all of the different benefits and advantages that you have when it comes to marketing paid advertising.

What Is the Advantage of Using TV & Radio Media for Advertising?

As with most other media used for advertisement message delivery, television and radio offer distinct advantages. Radio and TV are five of the media that form what is commonly referred to as the traditional media. The other components are newspapers, magazines and the internet. Companies typically build ad campaigns that rely on one or more of these media along with other support media.

TV Reach

Reach is a major advantage with TV ads. Despite criticism for high costs, advertisers have the best chance to reach a large audience through television. Reach is the total number of people exposed to your advertising message. Companies focused on generating brand awareness often have reach as a major objective. It is not uncommon for the most highly rated prime-time television shows to have 10 million or more viewers on a given night.

TV Creativity

Television also offers the greatest creative opportunity among the traditional media. It has visual elements like print and audio like radio, but it also has dynamic movement. Advertisers often try to tell stories within their ads that have an impact on the audience. Creativity can give greater meaning to a brand beyond its basic product. With TV, you can target emotional connections, incorporate characters that the audience can relate to and offer multi-sensory appeal.

Radio Costs

Radio is typically viewed as one of the lower-cost traditional media. Depending on how you look at it, this either leads to, or is a result of, the fact that local businesses constitute a significant amount of radio advertising. Radio does not require the video equipment and logistics of producing more expensive television commercials. Radio spots are also less expensive than TV placement, and they are often sold in packages of a certain number of spots in a rotation.

Radio Timeliness

Radio and newspapers offer the most timely ad placements of any of the traditional media. This benefits the advertiser in two ways. One is that the turnaround time on getting an ad on air is very brief. A common time frame of a radio ad is three weeks production and two weeks to develop a total media buy. This is to produce an ad of strong quality and to buy significant air time. Small businesses can often produce and place on ad in just a few days. Timeliness also means that you can deliver more timely messages to promote current business activities and promotions.

Advantages & Limitations of Television as an Advertising Medium

Television has been used as an advertising medium nearly since the day the device was introduced at the New York World’s Fair in 1939. Television — and its ability to help marketers reach a mass audience — quickly established itself in American households, write the authors of the book “Electronic Media: Then, Now, and Later.” Television advertising is one of the most popular ways of conveying a mass message. In fact, advertisers in the US spent $59 billion on TV advertising in 2010, according to the marketing industry website, Emarketer. It offers numerous advantages, offering a powerful impact and reaching a wide audience. However, television as an advertising medium has certain limitations that inhibit its effectiveness.

Advantage: Convenient and Flexible

The television is a convenient and flexible advertising medium, owing to its widespread popularity and the ease with which a message can reach millions of viewers internationally and nationally. Television advertising allows advertisers the flexibility to use various approaches and different combinations of audio, video and text to make ads memorable and emotional, depending on the product or service or the target audience.

Advantage: Strong Impact

Television advertising uses audio and visual effects to create a lasting impact. Marketers interact color, sound, sight, drama and motion to ensure that their message is strong and persuasive. Additional tactics and props, such as attractive models, elaborative sets, enchanting graphics and audio-visual effects further enhance impact.

Advantage: Mass Coverage

According to an article published in the New York Times, 96.7 percent of American households own television sets. This amounts to more than 300 million people who have access to television. Cable networks, 24-hour programs and satellite channels have further hiked television viewership in the country, making the television a substantially lucrative mode of conveying an advertisement.

Limitation: Intrusive

Consumers often bemoan the intrusive nature of television advertisements and find ways to avoid commercials. This limits the effectiveness of television advertising. Consumers either take time out during a commercial to make a trip to the refrigerator or surf programs on other channels. Furthermore, different technological innovations enable consumers to block advertisements all together. The V-chip is a device that consumers can program to block unwanted content on television, including advertisements. TiVo is another similar device that allows users to store television programs without commercials.

Limitation: High Costs

Television advertising costs more than other forms of media, such as radio, magazine, newspaper and Internet advertising. Quality commercials are expensive to produce. Typical production costs range between $200,000 to more than $1 million for each commercial, writes William Arens in his book “Contemporary Advertising.” Airtime costs are equally high, ranging from $200,000 to $400,000 for a 30-second slot, according to Arens. These costs can prevent detailed messages from being delivered and most advertisements end up being brief and fleeting.
