Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

Majority of the companies are dependent on printing materials of different varieties, which serve both as announcement channels as well as advertising tools. Effective brochure printing is an important part in the whole method of promoting the product or the service of a company. There are other factors in this group to make the same effect as brochure printing does for an industry.

You will probably not be able to differentiate between really genuine business houses from a kind of make-belief business organization on the face value of a business card or pamphlet. The depictions there are approximately similar and speak of only good qualities. If you compare brochures of different companies, you can easily mark the difference in the status of companies.

Good companies consider brochure printing as an investment to make a positive impression into the market to create possibilities for better income. This is not possible for those companies, which pretend to be big ones. The brochure of a business house is a true reflection of the class of the company. It is a summary of the company’s past achievements and excellence attained in the trade.

A customer will be able to recognize the worth of a particular company and can decide to award contracts. It is a tool to differentiate the status of a particular company in the market from other competitors. Hence it is a wise decision to opt for a high quality brochure printing venture for reliable and efficient companies.

The next step would be to discover the ingredients of an efficient brochure printing activity. A qualified brochure has to be planned by professional approach. The ingredients, which are, the matter and the form of the brochure have to be top class. The look of the brochure should reveal that it had incurred quite an expenditure on this account.

A satisfying appearance of the brochure projects the positive outlook of the company to the consumer. You have to pay due attention in the choice of color combination, the shape, the size and even in the scripts used in the brochure. A clean brochure speaks of the efficient nature of a famous company. The most important thing in brochure printing is the message.

Adwords Management: Avoiding the ‘Google Slap’

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Proper management of your Google Adwords campaign will prevent your campaigns from getting what is commonly referred to in the internet marketing world as the “Google Slap.” So exactly WHAT IS the Google Slap? That’s when Google decides that you have done something that is either against their policies, quality guidelines, or against the law and they decide to “slap” you for it.

Sometimes that punishment results in your website being removed from its index and search results. Other times, it may be an “adjustment” downward for your page ranking. Here is how Google puts it in their own words:

“Google may temporarily or permanently remove sites from its index and search results if it believes it is obligated to do so by law, if the sites do not meet Google’s quality guidelines, or for other reasons, such as if the sites detract from users’ ability to locate relevant information. We cannot comment on the individual reasons a page may be removed…” (Google Webmasters/Site Owners Help Manual)

The “Google Slap” is mostly used when referring to cases where organic listings are penalized. Organic listings are free search results that appear below and to the left of paid ads; however, make no mistake about it; you can get “slapped” for running bad Adword campaigns as well. An example of having one’s Adword campaign being slapped would be where perhaps your ads were costing $3 a click and suddenly Google raised your minimum bid to $10.

Here are some of the common mistakes people make in their Adword campaigns that result in Google slaps: -Poorly written ads with extremely low click-through rates -Using too many broad-matching keywords, which really have no relevancy to the terms searched on; this will also result in low click-through rates, which will get you “slapped” with higher ad prices. -Low quality scores, where there is no relevancy between the keywords searched on, the Adword copy, and the landing page. -Using a destination URL that is not congruent with the display URL in your ad -Deceptive advertising; DON’T do this.

There are many other ways to get yourself slapped, but I think you may be getting the picture. Now, what you REALLY want to get from Google is what is referred to as “Google Love.”

Google loves for its searchers to find what they want; in fact, if you can figure out a way to make sure that your products or services are exactly what a searcher is looking for, Google will LOVE you. It’s really that simple. Many people try to over-complicate this.

Google loves for its searchers to be happy and they will reward you will lower-priced ads if you can consistently and effectively make this happen. Many advertisers don’t know it, but the ads at the top are not necessarily the ones who are paying the most. The Google bidding process factors in something called a “quality score,” which is the great equalizer. Quality scores assure Google that an advertiser cannot simply “buy” their way to the top position without giving the searchers value in return.

I don’t know about you, but I would rather be loved than slapped – especially when we are talking about my Google Adwords campaign. If you follow Google’s guidelines, do your market and keyword research, and spend some time learning about effective Adword campaign management techniques, I promise that you will feel lots of love…and not only that…you will find yourself with a profitable Adwords campaign.

Adwords Management is All About Being Relevant

Friday, April 24th, 2009

Do you which people are successful with Adwords management? The ones who are going to get the most out of Adwords management are the ones who actually take the time to make their campaigns perfectly relevant.

Most people are losing money in Adwords management for one of two reasons; Either they do not know how to make their campaigns have perfect relevancy, or they don’t have the time and necessary software required for all managing Adwords. If you’re an Adwords advertiser there is simply no excuse for not ensuring that your Adwords campaigns have perfect relevancy.

Why is relevancy so important? It is the key to paying less for your clicks and getting the most out of your Adwords investment. Wouldn’t you like to spend less in Google Adwords and get the same amount of clicks you’re getting now? It’s very doable. As a matter of fact, if you take the time to make your campaigns perfectly relevant you could actually spend less than what you are spending now and get even more clicks!

Making campaigns have Relevancy is so important in Adwords management because it decreases the amount you have to pay per click, causes your ad to get shown higher in Google and in most cases causes your ad to get more clicks. When a searcher does a search in Google for the keyword “acoustic guitar” and sees the keyword “acoustic guitar” appearing in your ad, the searcher will naturally be more inclined to click your ad because they see that it is relevant to what they just searched on.

You’re absolutely failing in Adwords management if you’re not making your campaigns have perfect relevancy because you’re pretty much telling Google that you’re just an ordinary Adwords advertiser who doesn’t mind paying increased amounts for your clicks. Don’t be fooled that’s exactly what will happed to you too.

I’m sure that if you have already noticed in your Adwords account that Google keeps upping the minimum bid prices for several of your keyword. Guess what It only gets worse. A large portion of Adwords advertisers end up having to shut down their Adwords campaigns because they simply can’t afford to keep spending so much in advertising costs for so little traffic.

If you’re not getting the amount of traffic you want from Google Adwords then it’s obvious. There’s something majorly wrong with your Adwords campaigns. Google Adwords is a great way to get a very steady stream of traffic pumping into your website and if you know what you’re doing in Adwords management you can get as much traffic out of your niche as possible by getting your ad shown higher in Google (more clicks) and by decreasing your click costs? How do you do that? You do it by making your campaigns relevant ofcourse! If you’re not sure how to do this, then I highly suggest you find an Adwords management company to get the job done for you. Don’t wait Succeed!

Adwords Management is NOT All About Keyword Research

Friday, April 24th, 2009

Most Adwords Management companies want you to believe that Adwords management is all about keyword research. Take it from an Adwords Management expert; This is totally untrue! Keyword research is only a small part of the Adwords puzzle. Focusing on keyword research and keyword list building alone can easily be fatal for your Adwords campaigns. As a matter of fact, keyword research is totally useless if you or your Adwords management company focuses solely on keyword research alone. You can have the biggest, most targeted keyword list in the world and fail miserably in Google Adwords.

Here’s a good reason to stay far away from Adwords management companies that go on and on about their “keyword research”. Keyword research can be VERY expensive if it’s not done the right way. I see keyword research as a crutch for many Adwords management companies. After all, how hard can it be to build a large keyword list, sit back and watch as a client spends countless dollars testing out a new keyword list then simply seeing which keywords are profitable or not.

My point is keyword research is something that is very cost efficient and doesn’t require a ton of wasteful spending. Keyword research is also something that should be done very gradually to prevent wasteful spending on large amounts of keywords that don’t convert into sales or clicks. (This would damage your campaign history too).

Watch Out- If you stumble upon a company that talks about keyword research without telling you about the following things, watch out. If they don’t mention these next few thing to you then 1) they don’t have what it takes to protect your wallet from wasteful spending, 2) They’re not doing much work for youAT ALL.

Adwords Management is Not All About Keyword Research In fact Keyword Research implemented without these next techniques is flat out, dangerous, stupid and lazy!

Adgroup Relevancy- Adgroup Relevancy is extremely important in Adwords management simply because Google HATES campaigns that have little or no adgroup relevancy. Regardless of how many hours it takes to set a campaign up like this, even if it a brand new keyword list your campaigns should be set up with perfect relevancy. Each keyword should be put into an adgroup all on its own or either be put into an adgroup with just a few closely related keywords. It may take hours to set up a campaign like this but it’s a crucial step in decreasing outrageous click costs.

Ad Relevancy- I can’t tell you how many times lack of ad relevancy KILLS Adwords campaigns. Google is obsessed with relevancy, of course and expects to see that your ads are perfectly relevant to the keyword that was searched on. Each one of your keywords an ad written especially for that individual keyword with the keyword searched on appearing at least twice in the ad. Why don’t Adwords management companies tell you about this? This is a crucial part of keyword research! First of all you will get sorry results and high click costs if your ads don’t have perfect relevancy! Secondly how can you possibly get accurate results from “Keyword Research” if you’re contaminating your research with ads that don’t convert and that cost a fortune?

Landing Page Relevancy? What the Heck does that have to do with keyword research? Don’t be fooled. Landing Page Relevancy has a heck of a lot to do with keyword research. Think about it What exactly is the purpose of keyword research? The purpose of keyword research is to find which keywords are:

A-Profitable (Are People searching under this keyword looking to buy my product?)

B-Cost Efficient- (Providing a great return on your click cost investment)

C-HORRIBLE – (You need to find which keywords are not bringing you targeted traffic and sales. You know, the ones that cost you so much money but don’t bring in a dime. You need to find these keywords and DELETE them.)

Landing Page Relevancy is where with a combination of special programming and Search Engine Optimization, you make your landing page perfectly relevant to your keyword list. This keeps customers on your site longer and makes Google charge you far lower costs per click. Whatever you do make sure that you don’t fall for the whole “Keyword Research Speech” most Adwords management companies are giving because Keyword Research is “nothing” without the strategies I mentioned above.

Having Trouble Managing Your Adwords Campaign? Change the Headline!

Sunday, April 19th, 2009

A good Adword campaign starts with a good headline. A great Adword campaign starts with a great headline. And knowing how to write great headlines is a very valuable skill in any business. The failure to understand how critical this skill can be is a huge mistake that we see from both Adwords newbies and professional Adword management companies.

Good keyword research and bidding skills may get your ad shown in a top ad position when someone does a search, but if you don’t have a compelling headline, you may be wasting a lot of money. On the other hand, you can have poor ad placement, ranking near the bottom of the page, but if your headline sticks out, then you will end up “stealing” clicks from your higher-ranking competitors.

So if you don’t know how to write good headlines, where can you start? Start by looking at some of the ads that appear when you search for your keywords in Google. Now, if you are a student of mine, you already know my philosophy about the top ad position. Hint: “The top ad position is not always the place you want to be, and the company advertising there, does not necessarily know what they are doing.” But there ARE instances when the top ads will have the best headlines. Look at those ads and pay attention.

Another method that I like is to use a research tool, such as Spyfu or Keyword Spy to see which ads of a competitor have consistently been in positions #4-6. Many times you will find that your competitor affords to rank lower because they have strong headlines that out-convert higher-ranking ads. Read those headlines and learn from them as well.

Also, it may be beneficial to look OUTSIDE of your industry for Adword headline ideas. How about a real (at the time of this writing) live example?

Let’s say I am writing an ad for an attorney and need an inspiring headline. I will now search for a babysitter to get ideas. So I just typed “need a babysitter” into Google and here is an incredible idea from an ad whose headline is: “Need a Local Babysitter?” I love the word “local”. I can now use the headline “Need a Local Attorney?” or write another headline that includes the word “local”. At the time of this writing, a quick search on “need an attorney” showed no ads on the first page using the word “local.” My ad would definitely stand out!

You may be wondering, “Can I steal headlines? Is that plagiarism?” There is no rule that says you cannot use the same headline your competitor is using. But you must remember, 99% of the time the advertiser is doing SOMETHING wrong. So if you are going to copy a competitor, I suggest you copy only what works. Sure, I like to look at competitors’ ads and take notes. I even recommend starting a digital “swipe” file, where you take headlines that you really like and copy them to a document and keep adding to that file for future reference.

There are many free resources on the web that can train you to write good headlines and we will cover some great headline-writing techniques in a later article, but the most important thing is that you recognize your return for investing time into learning how to write a great headline. If you can’t afford to invest your time, then hire a copywriter who knows how to write headlines and ad copy for search marketing ads. Many Adwords management companies also have specialists who are experts in writing headlines and ad copy that can turn otherwise so-so advertising into highly successful Google Adwords campaigns.

Articles Submission

Saturday, April 18th, 2009

You can get good results for your website with proper use of article submissions. Find out more about this by searching “Article Directories” or “Ezine Directories”. If you own a business on a website, you need to at least check article submitting out.

You could tap into one of these sound, colorful market subsections once you glean a few essentials for performing with a field item. In this chapter, we show you how you might tap into these field markets. While considering a field market, envision the market as far as a pie.

The entire pie signifies an whole market; one that’s typically well developed. Although cut out one piece of that pie, and that piece gets to be a tinier market all on its own. You no longer focus on marketing the whole pie.

You now thin your concentrate to that lone cut. The pet industry serves as a genuine planet illustration. As a entire, pets now make up a $34 billion industry, containing money exhausted on everything from veterinarian visits to feline grub.

You might practice in the field and become the master! Before you launch your field-concentrated site, you need to quiz your hypothesis. Perhaps you’ve created the exact item.

Regardless of these high expenditures, less than five per centum of pets in the Joins States are covered. If you’re keeping up with the math, that means that 95 per centum of that market is up for snatches. To reply to the requests of this client base, web sites like Fast Care Pet Coverage and Pet Plan now offer online estimates and enrollment to pet owners. Affirm that pet coverage makes up only two per centum of the total pet market. That’s still an $80 thousand-thousand piece of pie these businesses might like.

As you see, a field market could be profitable, particularly for a tiny online business. Naturally, you get to like these benefits with a highly targeted market. If you’ve finished your research, you typically have no trouble discovering your clients. And since you’re handling a more thin concentrate, you might get to know your clients incredibly well.

Build a dense plan for marketing to your field market. Occasionally, you might find grasping this kind of client more perplexing than advertising to a broader client base. In any case, you’re mentioning a highly targeted and extremely precise client.

Targeted e-mails and pod casts additionally make for an effective advertising spending limit. While you grant items that are difficult to materialize by, your clients often seek you out. Your job is to make the best of your directory listing enhancement.

Might you talk their language? Speaking the chat means being current on present phraseology, hot themes, and issues of relevance. Draw in your clients by granting well-timed, educational content on your Web site that aids the items and services you offer for that precise field.

Search “Article Submitter 2.5” and “Ezine Article Submission”X to learn about submitting articles online. When you are doing these searches, add “Web Directory”. Do not miss out on what might be exactly what your site needs.

How To Create An Effective Marketing Plan

Friday, April 17th, 2009

If you’re looking to succeed with a basic marketing plan, then youll need to focus on some core elements of a plan that targets the right audience and produces a result. For your marketing to be truly effective, you should consider using multiple media and a number of touches.

There is so much competition today that the messages you use need to be incredibly focused. The impact of any campaign is directly correlated to the quality of your list and the effectiveness of your offer.

After years of trial and error, I have found that marketing results are relatively consistent when you apply the same techniques. These techniques apply to any industry and any type of campaign you may be running. Consider building your marketing campaign based on the following strategies:

Set specific marketing goals. Before you start, think about what you want your marketing campaign to accomplish. Most marketers focus on conversion but you need to define what that means for you and your business. Some marketers are looking for a sale while others are looking for a download. Before you get started, consider what action you want your respondents or visitors to take and how you are going to measure the result.

Segment your market. Don’t try to market to everyone. If you do, your campaign will not be successful. On the other hand, if you consider the specific audience you’re looking to attract and find them, your chances of success increase tremendously. Review your current customer and find others like them if you wish to generate a positive return on investment.

Identify key messages points. What are the messages that resonate with your audience? Have you used headlines or email subject lines that have performed extremely well in the past? If so, use them to create a baseline and try to improve in later campaigns. You need to speak in the language that resonates with your customers if you are going to grab their attention and gain their trust.

Test your offers. The only way to run a successful marketing campaign is by testing various offers. Your offer is an essential component for driving results. Your best bet is to test multiple offers simultaneously by splitting your list or testing offers. Once you find and offer that works, try to beat its results during the next campaign.

Use an integrated marketing approach. Dont settle for a single email, post card or ad. Rather, discover the media that your segment uses to get their information, do research, and buy their products. This will help you determine the best way to reach them. Once you develop a campaign, tie together as many of these media types to convey your message and offer.

I’ve discovered that using these marketing techniques are essential for producing a positive return on your marketing investment. In addition, be aware of campaign timing. Even if all of the above criteria are met, your campaign may still fall short if you havent exposed your audience segment to the right message at the right time. It all comes down to timing.

Review each of these steps before creating your next marketing campaign. Your marketing is only going to be successful if you set specific goals, segment your market, use key messages that resonate with your audience and create a compelling offer. I encourage you to experiment with different media to get your message across and deliver a winning campaign.
