Tips and Techniques for an SEO Site Audit #pubcon

Welcome back! It’s time to talk SEO Audits, and how you can DIY. Up on stage to lead us on our journey are Rob Woods and Overit’s own Senior Strategist Jen VanIderstyne. You would have thought Jen would have shared her slides with me beforehand to make this part of my job a litle easier but, alas, then you would be wrong. I’ll remember this moment, Jen. Rob is up first. First, we want to talk about why you should do your own SEO Audit. What are the benefits? Why…

Mining Deep Facebook Data to Radically Profile Site Visitors and Email Lists #pubcon

Still here. There’s really no better way to end a day than trying to keep up with Aimclear’s Marty Weintraub so that’s what we’re gonna go. Brace yourself, this is gonna get nuts. I’ll do my best to keep up. Marty’s sharing his current Spotify playlist and the music he’s really into. Marty says this is his 9th Pubcon. If you would have asked Marty years ago if he thought he’d be able to take his customer list or actions that deem “success” and then do FB targeting around them…

Influencer & Micro-Influencer Identification #pubcon

Influencer & Micro-Influencer Identification #pubcon

Still with us? Good! Next up we’re going to talk influencer marketing with the very smart Kristina Libby and Matt Siltala. We’re starting this session a little early. That’s how I like it. Up first is Kristina. She starts by quoting Lazerfeld & Katy Theory from 1940 which found opintion leaders are most succesful in conveying an idea to people who share certain demo criteria. Krisitina performed an influencer survey to learn more about the influencers themselves — what’s important to them, how do they want to work with brands, etc?…

In-House Content Marketing #pubcon

In-House Content Marketing #pubcon

Lauren Polinsky (MGM Resorts) and Kate Morris (Craftsy) are up to talk about in-house content strategy. Kate starts off saying that she and Lauren are both very, very old. Perhaps not age-wise, but definitely experience-wise. We’ll take that. She mentions that we’re not here to just talk about blue links on a search page. It’s about showing up in the One Box. It’s about Voice Search. It’s about giving people the answer to the question they’re searching for.  It’s about videos. It’s all content. Content isn’t just the text on the page….

This crazy ride all started in a pub in London. Since then, it has…

The “Death” & Rebirth of Email Marketing

The “Death” & Rebirth of Email Marketing

If you haven’t heard, Facebook has started testing an alternate newsfeed for unpaid business page posts. The rollout has been slow but in the countries it has been tested in, the results aren’t looking too promising for small businesses.  It’s now even more important – no, necessary – that small businesses build and cultivate email marketing lists as their own personal assets rather than relying on third parties, like Facebook, to drive web traffic and sales. Déjà vu, anyone? If you remember a few years back, 2013 to be exact,…

Get Overit At #Pubcon!

Hello! It’s just about our favorite time of the year! When some chosen few get to board a plane at an ungodly hour, head west, and arrive in time for Pubcon Vegas. This year, I’m excited to say that it will be myself and Jen making the trip. She’s speaking; I’ll be providing blog coverage; and we’ll both be around to meet, mingle and have a little fun. Here’s a little bit of what you can expect: Catch Jen Dishing on SEO Audits On Wednesday morning, Overit’s Senior Strategist Jen…

This Is Who We Are Now: Navigating Angry Audiences

This Is Who We Are Now: Navigating Angry Audiences

Earlier this week, Jen sent me an article about McDonald’s relenting to rabid ‘Rick and Morty’ fans. You’ve probably heard the story by now. If not, The Ringer provides good backstory/context of what happened. Check it out and come back. The tl:dr version is McDonald’s ran a super-limited ‘Rick and Morty’-inspired Szechuan Sauce promotion, only it severely underestimated the demand, and people went ballistic when they couldn’t get their hands on the spicy sauce. They didn’t go I-have-some-feelings-about-this mad, they went rioting-in-the-streets mad. Here’s a quick snapshot of what you missed:…
