Bob Garfield – ‘The future isn’t in hyper-local news’

Bob is a commentator and analyst for advertising age, a co-host of the Peabody award-winning mpr program on the media and the author of the chaos scenario. Bob will be our keynote speaker at the local online advertising conference in New York March 21st and 22nd of 2012 welcome Bob. Thank you very much p a lot of people predicting even yourself, I guess, predicting the death of traditional media operations, but history has shown that throughout time, new media never completely displaces old media.

That’s true, I mean. Has the landscape change so radically is to make history obsolete know it? History is an obsolete. There has been nothing in history in media equivalent to the digital revolution. This is not the difference from from Radio to television. This is not the difference between pre, VCR and VCR, and you know it’s not even it’s not even that difference strictly speaking between pre-computer and post computer.

What it has to do with is a wandering media right now, along the way, the plundering a whole lot of other document enterprises. The digital revolution is akin to the discovery fire it’s akin to antibiotics, to manned flight, to the automobile, changing human activity in a profound way and everything else that happened before in the history of media. Since the printing press has been small potatoes, history does offer some.

It offers some clues. The Industrial Revolution you know being right at the top of the list. When we went from an artisan, bespoke economy and single cobbler, making pair of shoes to factory made shoes, it changed the lives of pretty much everybody in the world and steam engine and the train. Transportation simultaneously did approximately the same thing and radically reordered human experience. And that’s: what’s that’s: what’s going on now, hyperlocal experiments haven’t been able to sustain themselves yet mmm.

How? How can a local media company find a financially sustainable model in such fragmentation? Well, my answer: is they probably can’t the the midst of fragmentation? The combination of incredible fragmentation, which limits your audience size and the the inexorable downward trajectory of advertising prices means that nobody? Nobody is going to have the critical mass to professionally and profitably deliver news.

In my opinion, the the future isn’t in hyperlocal per se as a standalone operation. In my opinion, weirdly, the intern, sir, is going to be in consolidation. I believe that in every market the winner will be the entity, whether it’s a local TV station in the public radio station, a local newspaper, a series of hyperlocal sites, banded together or some parties, as yet unthought-of to form strategic relationships for content and for revenue.

With other players in that market and then the the combination of organizations that get there first and create revenue streams, while simultaneously becoming the central hub for news and information and culture in their communities, they win, they scoop the pot and everybody else just disappears. So there weirdly, paradoxically this this vast vast vast fragmentation is going to lead into consolidation and I believe in market after market aftermarket winner takes all you.

Business Development and Consulting with Pam Gockley on SynergyCafe with MagicBrad

It’s the internet. Lifestyle show about career finance, relationships, spirituality and wellness, we’re moving the online chatter over to real life activity, and now please welcome your host of synergy. Cafe magic Brad, hey enough friends, magic Brad! Here, synergy cafe in the synergy collaborative and I’ve got a new friend online and she’s from over in the east side of the world over by the ocean.

There and her name is Pamela. Are you doing Pamela, I’m telling fabulous? Thank you magic. So it’s one hour. One hour over there from central time right, I believe, said yeah. I lives in Asheville North Carolina, for I think it’s just one hour. No big deal easy, breezy. Ok, so the first thing we want to do is find out who you are and do you have kids, you married. You got pets who the heck are you.

My name is Pam cockley and I started a business 21 years ago and have been off to the races ever since that during that time I actually got married to my partner. So we have separate offices and it works. So he does one part of the business and I do another part of the business, so we worked out really well. I have two for babies to kitty cats, who I love dearly, and I decided early on that. I did not want children by Troy face and you know you have to feed those things every day, so you know I thought it would be better for me not to go that route.

You know some people like, oh and like no, I decided not to have children um and I love my furbabies and have a great husband yay. So you said you started a business so well, that’s the next question is: what do you do? What is it that you do on this business? We started 21 years ago as a marketing company. We help businesses grow their business through connecting with your customers. So when the economy crashed into Nate, we everything changed, and I help businesses who have not made that transition to customer centric and are still thinking they can put ads in traditional marketing.

And they can tell people how great they are, which is not going to work. And I help them transition into a more customer-centric, modern way of doing business. Just like you – and I are talking today, this was not going to happen. That’s kind of the way that the world works nowadays and it’s more evident now than ever because of this internet thing, and I think it’s also very important at a business that doesn’t quite get this to say.

You know what I just don’t get this and to work with someone like you. That does get it, because it’s very, very time-intensive should I be on facebook. Should I be on linkedin? Should I do articles? Should I do podcast yeah yeah? Absolutely absolutely. If it’s not me work with a professional who has the credibility and the experience to do it, I rail against people who claim they can fix issues but have no solutions.

So then it around a while. Well, there’s there’s too many things to read these days for an individual, a single business owner to deal with all these different things. So it’s best to outsource to someone that does get that it’s and the nice thing is, you don’t have to have them as an employee. You can using this contractor. So when do you, when do you do your work? Do you do your? I personally. Are you a name or a PM person? You must be an AM person because you’re here now I am an a in person.

Boo, boo boo. I love. I love getting up early in the morning. Absolutely so, when you work with your clients or do you work, you’re like like a helper on call kind of person, we’re kind of on an on call because of the the Internet itself is twenty-four seven, so we do have our own server. We do do hosting. So we’re kind of available twenty-four-seven to our clients, absolutely got it. And then, where do you do your work? You actually go to the clients offices, or do you do it all remotely, or do you have an office that you do like a studio or something like that? You guys were kind of and the really nice thing is.

I do all three of those you know. I do have my own office, I can work remotely and I do my favorite is face-to-face, not all possible. I get face to face whether it’s in the same room or a skype. I do a lot of Skype meetings because I like to see people’s faces, because you can tell a lot about a person by how their how their body language is. Sometimes I don’t even listen to what they say so much.

I hate to admit that, but I just I just look: how they’re looking you know, farm and being face to face like this is easy. Oh you’re, a social media expert, huh, yeah uh-huh roll roll eyes shaking of the head, so I at all costs. I try to get it in the face to face, but if not phone call or email or texting works as well, I like to get the the article thing. That’s why I’m doing these all articles, so people can know who you are and not think that you could be anybody from the Philippines or who knows where posing as you and it’s nice to actually see you without a fake green screen beach behind you and I, Like what you mean it’s not on the internet, it’s not real come on.

So again I don’t like take too much time, but can you kind of summarize your process of how you do your work? Sure I’ve actually written two books once called the reputation factor and the other ones called the art of running red lights and in those two books I lay out how I fixed our business, so we were so successful with the transition to a reputation, centric customer-centric process Using a reputation strategy, I actually wrote a book on it and I help people either work through it.

If they need a little bit of accountability, if they’re overwhelmed, nobody can do this all on their own, but the book is available that you can walk through until you get stuck. Some people call me I’m like not sure about this part, so I created for stats called the ford fees, its discover where you are define where you want to go, you develop it, you get there and then you defend it. Unfortunately, in this world, with the internet, anybody can say anything anywhere.

You have to have an insurance defendable plan, emergency action plan in place. Well because that’s basically the steps I like steps, i’m a metrics person, so don’t tell me to go, write a resume. Give me the outline right the resume then I can do that so this is this is an outline for business owners and for personal and professional to follow their own, because people are do it. Yourselfers excuse me, so I wrote the book based on what I did to turn our business around.

I would never tell you to do anything. I haven’t already tried okay. Well, before I get into my favorite question, then I’ve got one other final question for you. But could you tell us how to get a hold of you, your website domain names and all that kind of stuff sure, because people have really taken the word reputation and have created a definition for that I don’t agree with. I created my own word.

It’s called rep, EP tates, or so its repertoire descamps or pamela gothic amor mighty websites. So I do a lot of speaking a lot of training and a lot of consulting as well. So this it takes a lot to transition a business, but with somebody beside you, it’s not that bad to do it’s not that bad, so you can either get me through my website or yeah. That’s pretty much! The easiest way to get me. My put those links on these articles when I propagate them all in stuff too, so we just find it with a quick.

So, okay, here’s my first club just a general question: what does the word abundance mean to you? Just you know couple sentences, since I turned 50 abundance to me is time it’s just time and making time for myself and rejuvenating myself and working on me, and I know what s it sounds selfish, but it is i’m not going to do good for anybody. If i’m not taking her, I totally nice right. I finally realized that looks like it.

That’s kind of like the oxygen mask in the airplane. You put it on yourself before you putting other people, because the reality is is if you’re somebody’s calling in here there we go he’s right. Who is it now for you? It’s a some other sky /. You must be interesting getting to hold of me. That is good, so I got some time devices here because I meant at the time thing, because it is the one thing that we all have in common it’s time, even though it’s made up on our heads of what time actually is, but you know the routes Earth spins and things happen, and it’s the same for everybody, so here’s my favorite question then we’ll assign this bad boy off and propagate it up to the universe.

Question is the big. Why why are you doing this? Why aren’t you a school teacher? Why aren’t you like a Olympic skier or have your own yoga studio? Why did you pick this for a career? I’m not sure I picked it. I think it picked me um. I think I’m very passionate about people finding and fixing things when I was first interviewed about 20 years ago. They named me the fixer and in business. It just makes sense.

This just makes sense, I’m terrible at sports, I’m competitive, but not for me, I’m competitive for my clients, which you know may sound a little trite, but this is where I should be, and finally it only took me 50 years to figure out. This is my passion, and this is where I need to be. I need to be right now, got it well, it’s refreshing them on most of the people. When I asked that question, it boils down to they’re doing it for other people kind of thing.

That’s kind of the why working for your clients and that’s a that’s encouraging to that? Maybe humanity can come back together again, so I’m working on it too. Okay. Well, that’s part of the goal of this is to get the online chatter back in the real life activity. So I appreciate you taking your time this morning and I will get this out into the internet and i’ll send it to send some links to you and if you could, synergize and propagate them up also will rising tide lifts all boats so to speak.

So, Thank You, Pam for taking the time she’s someone happiness. This is a magic bread signing off. You will

What is search engine optimization (SEO)?

It’S the Gateway that we have to the web. People that maintain websites are in many ways very concerned about how their sites appear in search engines. So, but I want a restaurant. I want to be on the top page results when people search for restaurants Ameria. If I run a company, when people are looking for things, I sell or services that I offer it’s critical that I get on one of those top search pages, particularly in my local area.

If I don’t, people are going to find my business and my numbers may go down so there’s a lot of interest, and this is something that you can find our whole blogs about. Search engine optimization or something that’s also known as SEO, and all sorts of advice about different techniques, blah blah blah. You can divide that sort of into two different categories: there’s black hat SEO, which has to do with things that the search engines don’t condone.

These are practices that are really aimed at manipulating the search results or manipulating a sites position in the search results, putting it higher than it should be. On the other hand, there’s also a great set of white hat SEO techniques that are designed to just try to make sure that your site appears properly in the search results. So you can, you can say you know, the black hat techniques are trying to boost your site above where it should be.

The white hat techniques are just trying to make sure that your site is where it should be. Can a search engine find out appropriate things about my site? Can it make sure that it understands what pages on my site are about? Can it make sure that those pages are returned by the appropriate search queries so right? You know that – and this has to do really with you know – adjusting the structure of the page and other pieces of information that the website provides to search engine and to the robots that crawl the web.

So you know various things you know picking good titles right. So making sure that your pages have a title and that the title is appropriate. The title has some information about the content on the page. That’S another one, adding keywords and descriptions. So the metadata that a particular page has has influence on how robots process the page and so making sure that those keywords are good and the descriptions are up to date.

Things like this. You know making sure that robots can find pages so setting up potentially a site map that allows robots to make sure that they can find every page on your site and then also provide some interesting metadata information about how important those pages are. And then, of course, you know making sure that the contents of the page are in good shape that they’re up to date that they are relevant, that they’re interesting.

You know to some degree. The reputation of a website, hopefully fundamentally has to do with the content that that site provides not necessarily some of these gimmicks that are designed to just make sure that things work well with search engines. But there are some straightforward things you can do to make sure that your site appears in the search results in the proper position. If you want to learn more about this again, you can spend days.

You know trying to find different frameworks to optimize your the weird things up here in the search engine if you want to. But fundamentally you know, given how important searches is a huge amount of interest in this area, making sure that search results are relevant and appropriate. You

Finding The Right Guidance To Improve Your Digital Footprint

When building your business, you will need to acquire a lot of information to ensure that you are doing everything right. However, when there is so much information that exists in physical books and across the internet. It can be difficult to pinpoint exactly where the ‘correct’ information is. More often than not, even when you find what you’re looking for. You might ask how reliable it is? Can I trust this source? This can be a difficult task, so how do you find the best guidance? Especially when it concerns improving your digital footprint.

What Is A Digital Footprint?

Digital footprints are the trails you leave behind on the internet, either actively and intentionally through social media or passively through the data you share as a business. This includes every blog post you publish and every social media update you make. These digital footprints play a huge part in the running and the future of your business. Your online reputation can be shaped by the digital footprint you leave, so it is worth considering how to improve yours.

Why Is It So Important?

As a business owner, one of your top priorities is marketing your business and attracting customers through increasing your outreach and building your digital presence. The success of this can make a difference between a company succeeding and not. In recent years digital footprints have started to play an ever-increasing role in marketing strategies, specifically in regards to online marketing. With an ever-increasing number of businesses operating digitally, for somebody to find your website, it can be similar to searching for a needle in a haystack. Even with the right marketing techniques in place, if you don’t increase the size of your digital footprint, you could still be missing out on big opportunities.

There are many ways that you can increase your online presence. This includes creating content for your website that is shareable on other platforms and engaging for your target audience, posting on your social media sites regularly, or you could even blog yourself. Combine this with original, interactive content that is consistent, and your digital footprint will start to increase, and you should see more traffic.

What Help Is Out There?

Another concern for any business is understanding what help is out there. Fortunately, you can employ experts to do all of this for you. Your time is precious if you run a business, or carry heavy responsibility. However, it is more than just a case of reaching out to experts; you also need to ensure that you understand the level of expertise and guidance these experts can offer you. This can help you determine exactly how they will help you improve your digital footprint and boost your business to meet its full potential, and this means doing some research.

Tips for Like4Like.org

Now I have been a member for about a year and I have learned a bit of how to play on platform. If you are not careful or do not follow the rules from the developers. You may be banned from your favorite social media platform. Yes, I have been punished by Twitter and Facebook. They will typically turn off  your liking and or sharing functions for a period of time. It is their way of making you aware that you are not allowed to abuse their network. If you think about it. It really does save their integrity. Below are two pieces advise that you should read so that you do not get banned or punished.

  1. Look at what you are sharing on your profile. Like 4 Like gives you the opportunity to view what you are sharing on your profile before you share it. I highly advice you look before you leap. I lost an entire twitter profile because I was not paying attention to what I was sharing.
  2. Do not get greedy! Space out the time spent liking and sharing. If you go to fast you will be punished. They will basically turn off the ability to like stuff if you go too fast or you do too much in a short period of time. SLOW DOWN! VERY IMPORTANT!
  3. Have at least one profile on several different social media networks. This way you can make exchanges on different networks in one session. It will help slow you down and will decrease the chances of being banned.

How to make the most out of Like4Like.org

The developers of Like4Like have made it so that it is very difficult for robots to gain access to their system. So all of the exchanges are made by humans. Well it appears that all of them are. You can really gain a lot of traction if you start interacting with the people liking and sharing your content. It is very important to realize that you need to connect with people. The L4L community only gets your foot in the door and that is all.

Optimizing your social media profile

To really gain all the good stuff that happens when using Like4Like.org. You need to build awesome attractive social media profiles. Here are some tips you should really practice.

  1. Upload a Profile Picture! Your face is the best.
  2. Fill out the about or description section! Tell people about yourself , use emojis and have a good call to action with in the description.
  3. Fill in where you are from! The developers of L4L give you the ability to target people depending on location. Just put your country in.
  4. Make sure to fill in your interest. This will give others a brief idea about what you like. Making it easier to connect with you.

Referral program

Like 4 Like has an awesome referral program. If you are into affiliate marketing then this would be a good program for you. I have to ask if you do decide to join their community. Please use the links that I provided with in this blog post. This way my L4L profile will be awarded.

Buying social media interactions

You can log onto the site and purchase points for social media interactions. I have done this and have found that sometimes the points spent doesn’t add up to how many interactions that appear on my social media profiles. Some of the likes and shares will disappear after you get them. They are most likely deleted by Facebook, Twitter and or YouTube. It started to get real bad when they started deleting accounts off their networks. Also some community members will delete their interactions afterwards as well. I think it’s because they don’t want the content they liked in the social media feed. If you are not adventurous with your content because you refuse to see anything different in your feed. Like4Like is not for you. The reality is that after some of the purchased points or the points that you get in exchange. Will be spent on social interactions that disappear.

So if you have a hard on for every point, then this is not for you. I have been using the system for a long time and have seen some like and shares quickly appear and shortly drop off. Maybe hours or days after they show up. However, majority of the social media interactions do stick. This is clearly Facebook, Twitter and YouTube’s policing. They have to do this so that the like button does become point less.

Report violators

The developers of the L4L have put I. A system to report violators. Yes, there is rules and if you do not follow them. Points are taken away or your account get banned. I highly suggest you read the rules and expectations before paying in the community. Also always report violators it help the community.

The cons

1. Facebook, YouTube and Twitter are known to drop social interactions after they are completed by community members.

2. You can be banned from Youtube, Twitter and Facebook if you are abusing their tools.

3. Every point earned may not see a return.

4. You still have to interact with people via messaging, or comment to really make useful connections.

5. A social media profile that likes or shares your content may not be complete and look fake.

6. Some of the social media profiles that community member are using to interact with are not used or barely monitored. Kinda like shell accounts.

Tips to avoid the cons

1. Slow down! Do 5 to 10 minute sessions at least a half hour apart.

2. Populate your social media profiles with content. Images and posts. Do not just post links to crap on your wall. That looks spammy.

3. Read the rules and exceptions of community

4. Write awesome comments

5. You get better results if you have people like your posts. Then invite them to like or subscribe to your page.

6. Stick with the community over time. You are rewarded free points the more work you put into it.

The value

I think you should think of this community as a window. A window into another community or even another world. A world that you may have never seen. It is no secret that a digital bubble is created around you the more you use your social media profile. You will be around people like you and you see the same content over and over. After time you no longer see out of the bubble. Like4Like.org will bypass that bubble. I know you will see some crazy stuff on the platform. I really enjoying going through Sound Cloud. There is so much music out there in the world and it is freaking cool.

Feel free to leave any questions or comment about Like4Like.org.

Undeniable Proof That You Need Website Management Services

In the world of modern business, a strong web presence is vital. While several components will contribute to the company’s overall online image, there’s no doubt that creating a great website is the main priority. Frankly, a professional website management service is the only way to guarantee success in the crowded environment.

What Is A Website Management Service?

Once upon a time, the average company website was little more than a digital business card. Nowadays, though, they need to provide visitors with so much more. The idea of simply building a static website will no longer cut the mustard, and the ongoing management will play a pivotal role in ensuring that the website continues to make a big impact.

A lot of work is involved in keeping a company site up to scratch, but professional website management service will take care of all aspects. These include;

  • Graphic design
  • Programming and coding
  • CMS management
  • Search Engine Optimisation
  • Copywriting
  • Digital protecting
  • Social media management
  • E-commerce platform installation
  • Performance analysis
  • And more.

Essentially, then, a website management service ensures that your business site meets professional standards time and time again.

Benefits and cost of website management on a balance scale

10 Benefits Gained From Using A Website Management Service

While it can be tempting to take on the challenge yourself, having your website and online presence managed by Allshouse Designs will aid the cause in a whole host of different ways. Here are just 10 rewards to be gained from taking this route:

  1. Save Time: Building and running a website requires a lot of hard work; work that will distract you from actively managing your business operation. Having a team of experts to take control of those web assignments on your behalf will save valuable time.
  2. Save Money: Outsourcing this part of the operation will save money (and not only because time is money) as you’ll no longer need the extra space or equipment for on-site staff. Likewise, a website management service will find the best solutions with regards to hosting and other features.
  3. Stay Active: Form the client’s perspective, nothing tops the frustration of constantly seeing 404 website errors. Something as simple as choosing the wrong hosting platform could spell disaster, especially if you don’t notice it. With a website management service behind you, this won’t happen.
  4. Increase Security: Online data hacks are perhaps the biggest threat to your business. From SSL certificates to DDoS attacks, the experts understand how to prevent the various dangers that could impact the business and its clients. Better still, the quick responses will contain the damage.
  5. Express Personality: Consumers want to use companies that ‘get them’. The experts know how to tailor a website management service to suit specific audiences. This can range from choosing the right layouts to creating engaging content that encourages interest and participation.
  6. Boost Visibility: Your website cannot be a success if nobody knows it exists. From on-page SEO to external marketing methods, a website management service gives your business the best shot at soaring up the Google rankings to attract increased traffic and sales figures.
  7. Embrace Integration: Furthermore, a website management team will integrate ideas such as social media posting and PPC management to ensure that all web content reaches the target market from all directions. This can truly take your web game to the next level.
  8. Stay Relevant: Let’s face it; the online arena is still in its relative infancy, and the goalposts continue to move each year. Taking on the web management process yourself is likely to mean following the trends. Using a web management team ensures that you’ll be ready to set them.
  9. Rectify Mistakes: By analysing the website’s performance, management teams won’t only focus on the positives. They can quickly identify where the site is underperforming before making the necessary upgrades to put things right. Persisting with it yourself would see those limitations stay.
  10. Maximise Appearances: Above all else, it’s very easy to spot a website that has been created by an amateur. A professional service will ensure that your site creates the right impression time and time again while the backend CMS can aid load times and ensure the site looks great across all devices.

 

Verdict

In today’s modern world, the company website has the potential to be your business’s most vital marketing asset. Given its significance to your operation, getting it wrong simply isn’t an option. If you want to ensure that yours hits the mark today as well as for many years to come, a website management service is absolutely essential. Making that investment could be the smartest thing you’ll ever do.
