He will be answering various questions related to Digital Media & other Internet Marketing stuffs . So lets start with the interview.
Please introduce yourself to our readers. Can you tell us something about your content writer journey. How and when did you enter into this?
I’ve been in internet marketing for around 10 years and have always been involved in a number of different areas –Paid Search, affiliate marketing, SEO, content strategy and marketing.
Through our company – LouderOnline, we focus our efforts on inbound marketing that all stems from a strong content strategy and marketing system.
What is your educational background and who suggested you to this digital world ?
I have a technical background and have been in IT related roles prior to starting work in internet marketing. I actually jumped in to internet marketing one day when my fiancé( now wife) and I were looking at ways to combine our skills – me IT and her Marketing, so that we could figure out how people were making money online.
I spent 6 months 15 hours a day learning the in’s and out’s of it all until we finally made $0.40 online one day. We were over the moon with excitement. The reason we were so happy is we realized early on that making money online is fantastic because it can be automated to a large extent, and it can be almost infinitely scalable.
The very next day we turned that $0.40 in to $400 – and the rest is history.
What are the best Press release websites you are using ?
If we are ever required to help distribute press releases for clients, we do so through http://www.pressreleasemonkey.com
How has the importance or value of content changed over the time you’ve been in online marketing?
It has changed a lot. As search engine algorithms have improved they continue to fight off low value content and links. Developing high value , quality content and then distributing this content are the sure fire steps to a solid SEO \ inbound marketing campaign.
How to build a community for promoting your business or client business ? Any tools you recommend ?
It all starts with ensuring you have a steady stream of high value content. Once you have the content base, deciding where your target audience hangs out online is essential. Different industries, products and businesses have audience in different places, so doing your research up front is essential to choosing which social platform(s) to begin engaging on.
One of the worst things to do is be of the opinion that you need to have a prescence in all social networks. It spreads resources too thin and puts a strain on social media strategies, content strategies and content development requirements.
Do you think using fake names for client business can help their promote business very well.. Suppose you promoting your client business on Forum & Blog commenting platform, would you use fake or spammny names to promote client business. Please explain in detail.
No I don’t recommend fake names for client work. We like to keep everything above board and ensure that there are no problems moving forward. We would not recommend the use of fake names if there are other options available.
And who are your blogging role models ?
Neil Patel, Jon Morrow, Pat Flynn.
Why Content Marketing is playing keen role in SEO 2014. Do you think that only content marketing is king, other seo techniques are dead?
Technical SEO will always be important and should never be forgotten. Content is king, but ignoring all other areas of SEO is a mistake.
