The One Thing That works and you only need to update once every 6 months is the sections in your Page. Who you are. Why. How. What you do. What you sell. Most importantly. Why your fan is better off buying from you and not the competition.
Here are some quick points on Why all that hustle comes to naught on Social Media Sites
Viral Posting – Even if you do get great engagement; going for the viral post that has great engagement is exhausting. Viral posts gets you in first place today in your niche. But if you miss it tomorrow, you’re lost in a blackhole of content most viewers set their thrusters against. Viewers and facebookers are becoming more and more immune to “great” viral posts. In other words it’s getting harder to please them.
Platform Updates – UGH! now I gotta learn all the differences or even take another course on how to use LinkedIn to have a strong Profile! If the platform decides to update cause they want to capture better data, earn more from their users, step up their value proposition…Your business is screwed. Ignore how they want you to use their platform and you’re left by the wayside.
It’s amazing how many business owners I talk to and they still think that when they post on social media its gotta be about their business and their product. They say, “For people to know about me I have to post about me on Facebook” It’s like the lawyer turn politician. Before he was your friend (he needed your business) now that he got your vote; he’s too busy for you. Posting. Posting. and Posting about your business is telling your visitor. Listen to me. What I’m saying is important.
Social Media is FREE – but at a very hidden, very volatile expense. Your Time. Here is where the Hustle really kills you. You post and post. and you pay no attention to optimising your profile. All your great content is lost in weeks of content. Don’t get busy at work and miss the update from Social Media gurus who post about what you need to back up on your social site because they’re launching a new platform. LinkedIn just recently updated their platform and the Free version just lost a lot of priviledges. Did you download your contact list? Oh well.
Tip on running a promo. Create an event. Talk about the benefits of the promo from several angles over the next few days or weeks during the promotion. Don’t post the same graphic again and again. And again.
5 years of a great highly engaged fan page. You’re working hard in your business. Then one day you happen to be driving through a different neighbourhood and you see your competition opening a new location. 3 Days of detective work tells you that it’s their 3rd branch. They have a Facebook Page. They have less fans than you. But wait! most of their posts click through to a website…:(
Social Sites Love your hustle but they don’t care about your business. Use Social Sites to drive your fans to a website; your one pixel in cyberspace where you are King (or Queen) of your destiny (and keyword)

Robert Adelson, Esq., a well-known Boston business and contracts law attorney has engaged with WSI for SEO services for his executive employment law practice. For over 20 years, Attorney Adelson has provided his clients with outstanding legal representation in areas of employment agreement, executive compensation, equity and separation matters.
A frequent speaker and author, Rob has written numerous articles in the areas of employment agreements, non-competes and restrictive covenants, compensation, stock, stock options and executive equity terms.
His articles have been published in The Culpepper Letter, Family Business, Boston Business Journal, Genetic Engineering News and Mass High Tech: The Journal of New England Technology. In addition, Rob’s work as an executive employment attorney in Boston has been recognized in the Boston Globe, the Boston Herald and other publications.
The goal of the WSI engagement is lead generation. WSI conducted a careful analysis of the web presence and digital marketing activities performed by his previous marketing providers. The results showed that he has a 12-page responsive website, a 70-page older non-mobile-friendly website, a free WordPress blog with hundreds of pages, a Findlaw profile and four highlights, and a monthly e-newsletter campaign that drives traffic to the WordPress blog.
There was much duplicate content on these web properties and a strategy for content marketing, link building and driving website traffic was lacking.
WSI’s digital marketing solution:
– Rebuild the 70-page website into a NEW responsive website that complies with Google’s mobile friendly standards. Responsive websites enjoy improved Google search results rankings.
– Redirect the 12 page responsive website to the new website, preserving the links.
– Duplicate content was cleaned up.
– Next, perform comprehensive keyword research on the subject of executive employment and selected specific keywords that were then mapped to the relevant pages of the website.
The keywords focus on what Attorney Adelson does, as well as what he is, i.e., executive employment lawyer.
– Employ advanced on-page optimization techniques. The pages were optimized for the selected keywords and their stems. Here are several examples of keywords that have been optimized on the executiveemploymentattorney.com site:
With the on-page optimization complete, the SEO will now focus on improving the popularity of the new SEO pages through a comprehensive content marketing and local SEO program.
The off-page SEO program will include registering the website in local business directories, posting on its Google+ page, writing new articles, posting Rob’s speaker slides on Slideshare, and increasing his positive customer reviews. In addition, monthly blog posts will be written and syndicated to blogs established on the popular blogging platforms Tumblr, WordPress, Blogger, and Weebly. Monthly newsletters will include landing pages on the website to drive traffic to the website.
Each month of the SEO implementation will be monitored and carefully tracked. Key metrics that will be measured each month include links, rankings, organic visits and leads from organic visitors. We expect to achieve significantly increased lead generation rates from these SEO efforts.

This makes the local digital presence essential for their success to fill all 65 classes!
They came to eSpark Marketing with two specific goals for their online presence
Upon examination of their website and their current SERP positions, we constructed an SEO strategy to focus on each service area individually, starting with their most coveted buyer persona; the person interested in learning how to become a dog trainer or improve their dog training skills for an occupation or hobby within the dog industry.
Afterwards, we remapped the website, rewrote content, conducted on-page SEO optimization and off-page SEO optimization. All with the aim to achieve more qualified traffic and thus increase conversions. Then came the increase in clients! Besides search engine optimization, our plan also included social media ad campaigns, social media in-house training and improved analytics reporting.
That new innovative marketing took off! In the first year of business for the AZ Dog Smart Academy (newly expanded name), the marketing brought in dozens of new students and introduced a whole new generation of certified dog professionals to the valley of the sun!

Google Small Business took a quick survey from a group of marketers and reported that 45% of them did content marketing. Of those that did content marketing an alarming 20% were not sure what content marketing really is.
Content is shared by marketers, businesses, and much more individuals. Everything that is posted on social media (images, captions, hashtags, videos, gifs,…)is content. Everything posted on your website pages as well as blog posts is content. Ads, news articles, are all content.
If you are a website owner and want to create content; just look around you and observe what content is engaging. Observe the distance of the device from the person. Yes. The smaller the device the more engaged the person is.
So should an accountant have video content on his website? Yes. Serious people; business owners, lawyers, CEOs, all watch videos.
A bride to be is obsessed with her wedding. But she also needs to lose weight. A building contractor needs to figure out how to maximise the granite stone slab for his client’s kitchen. He also needs to communicate better with his teenage son.
What does content for your website have to do with the examples of the building contractor and the bride to be? Most website owners ignore the fact that their perfect buyer persona is a complete human being.
The content on your website needs to connect with one or two aspects of your buyer persona. Below I share briefly the 4 Pillars of Content Marketing.
Your website and social sites should satisfy these content elements.
While everyone is avoiding creating and uploading content you could work on improving your content and who it connects to.
Don’t wait for your accountant to walk out on you ’cause he knows by the looks of your books you will soon not be able to pay him. You’ve already invested in a website. Or is it a written off expense? Supercharge your content marketing strategy. Convert visitors into leads and eventually into customers. Call me to materialize higher conversion numbers. In the not too distant future you would hear the sweet words from your accountant approving your next major investment.
Selling from your website and constantly saying on every content that you put on the web…”Buy From ME!” (please?) only chases people away.
