  • The rankings have become volatile and are meddling the potential consistency of keywords. Google makes changes due to which there is a constant optimization from the competitor alongside your strategy.

Risk Management Strategies For Microsoft Dynamics

Anytime companies implement new software programs, there is always a chance that problems will occur. Microsoft Dynamics is no exception. In some cases, companies fail to implement the program correctly. In other cases, they may run into errors as they work through their projects. Although it is easy to blame the software for these types of problems, they are usually caused by user error. The software itself undergoes intense testing and is thoroughly checked to make sure it is compliant. Because of that, the odds of the program being the cause of the problem are relatively slim.

Instead, any errors most likely stem from improper use of the program. The likelihood of running into these types of errors can be reduced by implementing the program as carefully as possible.

Identify the objectives of your project. Prior to implementing the software, you should already understand what your objectives are. What do you hope to accomplish for your organization as a whole? What are your goals for this specific project? How can the Dynamics ERP and CRM help you achieve these objectives? How will you know if you succeed? If you fail to answer these questions before you begin, your chances of successfully implementing the program significantly decrease.

Train your employees. In order to get the most out of the program, you need to have people on hand who know how to run it. You don’t necessarily need to train every person in your organization. However, there should be at least a few people on your team who know the program inside and out so that they can deal with problems whenever they arise. Like other software programs, Dynamics is often updated by Microsoft. The people at your organization who work directly with the program should keep up with any changes – Usedynamics has some great, in depth information on the matter.

Create a plan for your project. Even though the Dynamics program is a cloud-based service that can help your company be more efficient, there are limitations to what it can accomplish. When planning your project, set realistic goals. In your plan, discuss vital details such as your projected workflow, any data migration that needs to take place, team members who will be involved in the project, and a basic sense of the overall workflow. Coming up with a detailed outline of your project also will help guide you when deciding what investments you need to make. As an added bonus, it can improve efficiency by preventing problems like duplication or poor coordination between different members of the team.

Prioritize good communication. Like other projects, a successful CRM or ERP project relies on good communication between departments at your organization. Thanks to the cloud-based nature of Microsoft Dynamics, project data is more accessible than ever. This is in contrast to past programs where all of the data was compartmentalized.

Planning your implementation. When you begin implementing MS Dynamics, there are a number of decisions that you need to make. For instance, do you want to update the program manually or automatically? Do you want to pay for it upfront or do you want to pay over time with installments? The answers to these questions usually will depend on how much money you have to spend, the requirements of your project, and the knowledge and technical skill level of your employees.

Evaluating your mobile needs. In today’s world, most software programs are judged on whether or not they are compatible with mobile devices. Evaluate the needs of your business to decide whether or not mobile compatibility is a priority. This will largely depend on how your employees work. For instance, if they work remotely, they are probably more likely to use mobile technology than if they work in the office.

A STEP-BY-STEP Guide to creating a SWOT Analysis for your brand strategy

When you set out to build your brand strategy – it’s always best to be number 1 in a new market – then number 2 or number 3 in an already crowded market. But, how do you build a great foundation for your venture?

The answer? A SWOT Analysis.

WHAT IS A SWOT ANALYSIS?

A SWOT analysis of your brand strategy would give you an idea about the strengths (S), weaknesses (W), Opportunities (O), and threats (T) of your brand’s ability to dominate the market.

SWOT ANALYSIS EXAMPLE

Let’s take real-life scenarios. A good friend of the writer named Sameer was starting a business where he would buy journals from India and sell it to the United States through an e-commerce store.

After a lot of research, he found a journal he liked and took his first step towards his goal. Upon the advice of the writer, he followed this step-by-step SWOT analysis for his product.

1 – Evaluate the Strength of your Idea

Sameer first did a quick Google research for the following keywords.

1 – Journals USA Buy

2 – Journals California Buy

3 – Self-improvement Journals USA Buy

4 – Gratitude Journals California Buy

He found some common denominators in the competitor’s websites.

Firstly, he found that there was virtually no copy under any of the products.

Secondly, he found that each of these websites had multiple journals for sale.

So, he found where his strengths lay;

  • He would sell just one journal on his website.
  • He would focus on a benefit-driven copy for his website.

2 – Swallow your Pride and Admit your Weakness

Next, Sameer needed to closely look at his weaknesses.

His biggest weakness was his marketing budget. If he were to take the Ad words route based on the projections, it would cost him close to $25 dollars to acquire a sale.

With a marketing budget of $500, he couldn’t risk running out of capital. So, he decided to explore alternate forms of advertising instead of Ad words.

 

3 – Look for Opportunities in Lesser Crowded Areas

Sameer had been hearing a lot about Instagram shoutouts.

Upon some quick research on Instagram hashtags, he found that the yoga handle has closed to 2 million posts.

Now, coincidentally Sameer practiced Yoga as well. So he decided to put his $500 dollars into marketing his business through shoutouts.

He found the best handles related to yoga and spirituality wrote a quick starter e-book on yoga which he used as a low tripwire offer of about $7 and then created an upsell page with the journal with a tagline “Journal like a Yogi”.

 

4 – Search for threats that can effectively shut you down

Sameer’s biggest threat now was the long lead time that comes with going through the funnel approach.

Upon his first couple of shoutout tests, he found that he got a 2% conversion on each shoutout expenditure.

So, at about $50 per shoutout – he would get close to 5 sales of his e-book. But no one was buying his journal.

He was $200 short and had just about $300 left before he ran out of his capital.

After looking at the analytics on his Upsell page – he found that a majority of the users bounced off within the first 10 seconds.

After a lot of dwelling, he decided to test a down sell page.

So after a user purchased his e-book he would then send them to the Upsell page for his journal.

Once a user clicks away from the page – he sent them to a down sell page where he gave the customer $20 off their first purchase.

After sending about 5000 people to his website – he saw that his tripwire e-book sales remained the same but this time he managed to sell one journal which helped break even on his shoutout expenditure.

This was a promising enough start for Sameer to continue on with this venture.

 

CONCLUSION

A SWOT analysis is just a tool you use to fine tune your business strategy. Do not make the mistake of spiraling down the analysis rabbit hole. An action is the greatest key to finding out if your theories are based on sound results or not.

Result driven advertising should help you here. Closely monitor what effect each one of your USP’s or offers has on your customer. Evaluate your cost per lead and lead time and then go about fine tuning it until you can fully automate the process.

Once you have found a good marketing strategy you need to scale up your operations and the best way for you to do that is to use a CRM software for marketing.

Kapture CRM is a cloud-based marketing SaaS provider that helps you automate a lot of the key tasks in your business.

Kapture CRM customizes its offerings according to the needs of your industry. The cloud-based platform can be used over a mobile application as well that is integrated over both iOS and Android platforms as well. Currently, Kapture powers 500+ brands in 12 countries.

SEO Ranking – Most Important Steps (Beside Keywords)

Everyone knows what SEO is and its importance in today’s marketing world. However, a lot of people seem to be confused by how exactly it works, and what’s important when writing in this style. So if you want your article to appear at the top of the searches, you are going to need to focus on more than just keywords. Of course, keywords are, well – key; but there are other things to pay attention to, and here they are.

Relevant content

k

There is a reason people focus on a single topic (or a relevant group) for their website. Sure, there are some websites – predominantly news focused – that cover a broad range of topics, but if you want your content to be optimized, and if you are just starting out, you want all of your content to be relevant to each other. Posting an article that is completely unrelated to your overall theme will throw people off and they might not return, or they might miss your main message completely.

Dwell time

One thing the algorithms look for is how long people actually spend on your site. If they just click to enter and realize it’s not what they expected then click right back out, it will hurt your rating more than help it. This is why misleading titles and introductions are a terrible idea, and why you should employ reader retention strategies. Nowadays, readers’ attention spans are getting shorter, and the “two-minute reads” are getting a lot more attention, but what happens when you want people to stay longer? Well, giving them more content is the easiest way. As soon as they are done reading the first article, they should be offered several others to choose from (all, of course, with eye-catching titles and intros). This will make sure your reader stays with you for as long as they have time.

Track progress

y

It’s amazing how many people think that statistics are just for science and that they don’t need to know any of that if they are just running a website. But let’s say you sign up for some SEO reporting that gives you a report on how you are doing on demand and you notice that there was a sudden drop of reader retention and dwell time. What do you do? You investigate. You look for the exact moment that the drop started and see what was done there. Did a campaign suddenly end? Did you post something that people just didn’t like? Did you hire a new writer whose style just didn’t vibe with the readers? All of these are potential reasons you are losing readers and not reaching the peak of the search page. Tracking everything allows you to combat changes and make everything run smoothly.

Good formatting and proper image size

Opening an article and seeing a wall of text is just not something that people want. You might think it’s a way to trick them into reading all of it instead of just the parts that they are looking for, but then you are missing the whole point of writing. All of your articles should be divided into logical paragraphs with proper headings, clearly distinguishable from the rest of the text. Your image sizes should also be optimized, not only for faster load time but for easier reading. Make sure you check how your article looks on several devices, to make sure that the photos don’t shift something to the side or end up in an incorrect place.

Most importantly, make sure that you are always working on your writing. The better the actual articles are, the more people are going to read them and the more they are going to boost your SEO rating. In the end, everything we do can only bring us up so far, but the main quality has to be in the writing itself.

The Worst Guest Blogging Mistakes

Each owner of a website that accepts guest blog posts is quite aware of the potential benefits. To begin with, guest bloggers can provide a fresh insight and more information about relevant topics, which increases the popularity of the website. Next, regular visitors to the site are offered an opportunity to enjoy a slightly different style of writing, which they may prefer to the one they are used to. Finally, the more content is created, the greater the traffic to the website, which translates into financial profit eventually… if the guest blog posts are not a disaster.

Many people aren’t careful enough when allowing (or writing) guest blog posts. For some, the most important is that some content is created. This is a major problem since quality needs to take precedence over quantity when it comes to running a profitable website. So, what are the most common mistakes found in guest blog posts that we need to avoid?

Content

People read your blog because they are interested in the content you’ve created. If you are skillful enough when it comes to writing, your readers will enjoy it more, but they are primarily interested in what you write, rather than how. Also, though you don’t want to bore people with your posts, you can’t really expect them to learn much from a short post (under 500 words, for example). So, finding the right measure when it comes to the topic and brevity is the key.

Visual aid

The way a blog is written also influences the impact it has on readership. Having long chunks of text rarely stimulates anyone to read the whole post. In most cases, such texts are briefly skimmed and though they may be informative and educational, the impact is likely to be missed. That’s why many successful bloggers resort to using bullets and relevant images to attract attention to the content. The former allows readers to find relevant information easily, while the latter has a great impact on search traffic since images are indexed by Google. However, make sure your choice of images is organic and relevant for the best results.

Not engaging the reader

y

Another common problem is the fact that many posts simply don’t engage readers, but simply present information. This is reflected in the choice of register and lack of questions, especially in the introduction. How many times have you started reading something and gave up very soon afterward, because you were just bored? Every reader wants to feel that you’re writing just for them. Of course, this doesn’t mean you have to become too personal, though some people may like it. Sharing personal experience is ok, but the trivial details of your life are hardly a matter of anyone’s interest.

Being too prolific

Although you can’t get traffic without posts, you can’t expect that multiple posts each day will help you achieve your long-term goals. It’s impossible to expect that you can maintain (let alone improve) the quality of your posts with hyper-production. This is particularly true for inexperienced bloggers. You don’t want the posts on your page to show symptoms of burnout.

Avoid blogging for blogging’s sake

The internet is saturated with posts about “how to blog” and your post on the same topic is unlikely to provide any relevant new insight unless you are positive you know something that others don’t. Readers are interested in very concrete topics and have come to your website because they thought they’d find what they are looking for or even be pleasantly surprised to learn something they didn’t expect. This element of delighting the visitor is one of those that make your page stand out among thousands of similar ones.

If you manage to avoid these common mistakes when it comes to guest blogging, you will stand very good chances of making the most of having someone else contributing to the growth of your readership and, consequently, bank account. So, be wise when it comes to using this powerful tool.

Make Your Company More Visible

When it comes to running your business, you want to be as “visible” as you possibly can. What do all the big successful companies have in common? They are all “visible,” and they can even be recognized by just their trademark, jingle, or even colors associated with the company. That is the product of tactful and repetitive advertising, and it can work for your company as well.

Giveaway items are a great way to promote your business for a couple of reasons. They make the recipient feel as if you value them and they will remember that you gave them something in return for nothing. It is a great way to establish a bond, and the giveaway item that you give them will continue to remind them of your first meeting as well as your business. It is necessary to make contact with a potential customer numerous times before they will actually engage or buy something, so your giveaway is doing a lot of the work for you.

Great things to give away include pens, apparel such as T-shirts or hats, food, water bottles, and calendars. These make great choices because they are inexpensive so you can invest in many of them to give out and they are also useful, or they are items that most people would want. There is a fine line here though. You want to spend as little as you can in your “freebies” since you will be giving them all away, and you want to keep your costs low so that you can afford the luxury massage table but you also want your promotional items to be something that people will want to keep around for a while.

If your massage business is just starting out, you have a lot of work to do to obtain recognition and to become reputable enough that you will draw in clients. The hardest part about starting a business is that you are the newbie and you haven’t had the chance to make a name for yourself and your services are unknown. Once you draw in a few customers, you will be able to get the word of mouth advertising started, and the best part is that it is free. It is also the very best kind since most people will take the advice of those they know over an ad that they saw somewhere.

There are a few ways to make your company more visible. You should start by registering for and going to a conference focused on your business. It’s a great way to engage potential customers. You should also branch out and visit local businesses owners to see if they are in need of your services. You could even offer them a coupon or incentive to try out your services. They may even let you put some of your business cards in their office for customers to be exposed to.

It is important to do this in person, as it is more likely that they will take you up on the offer than if you called on the phone. You could also join the local Chamber of Commerce. They often offer monthly events that may prove beneficial to your business. Trade shows are an excellent way to gain exposure and don’t forget to offer freebies and coupons to draw in customers. You could also host a workshop or free seminar. It’s a great way to introduce yourself, “sell” your service and answer any questions that your potential clientele may have.

Items that can be shared are a great concept since it is likely that more potential clients will be reached. Be sure to give out an extra freebie to every person so that they can pass it on. Be sure to include your logo on your freebies and to include a link to your website or social media account so that customers will be able to access more information on your company conveniently. Be sure to hand out referral cards as well. Referral cards will motivate people to tell others about your company since there is something in it for them. It is very important to promote your company when you are just starting out so that you can keep snowballing to success. You don’t want to lose your momentum.

Guest Posting Made Easy: What You Need to Know

Concepts like guest posting can sometimes be complicated, especially if you consider the many processes involved. Communicating with blogs, convincing them to let you post, and even planning your post does seem complex and overwhelming. However, there’s no need to complicate your perception of guest posting. Sometimes, it’s a matter of finding ways to make concepts easier to digest. And this applies for guest posting.

If you’re having a hard time understanding why guest posting is important in the first place, you might be interested to know the advantages it offers. Guest posting is connected to content marketing. Content marketing actually gets thrice as much leads as paid search, at 62% less the cost! Moreover, 61% of online consumers in the United States alone make purchases after reading blog recommendations. Imagine how this can benefit you when your services or products are recommended or mentioned in these blogs. Sounds cool, right? Now that’s what you call returns.

Guest Posting the Easy Way: How Do Pros Do It?

When you need a means to improve your content marketing strategy, opening guest posting on your website and/or guest posting to other sites can lead to conversions. Plus, there are many ways to pull off guest posting. You just need to understand the following basic principles:

  • Expose yourself to a target audience: Guest posting, especially when you do it to other websites, allow you to leverage on their target audience to expose your brand more. Writing a high-quality and valuable post will attract people to your website.
  • Connect with influencers and bloggers: Another benefit guest posting offers is the ability for you to expand and grow your personal network. Guest posting involves coordinating and communicating with bloggers and influencers, and cultivating your connections with them will help in the exposure of your website and business.
  • Get better shares and activity in social media: Bloggers and influencers will likely have their own respective social media platforms, aside from their websites. If you get a good post on their site, this post will most likely be shared with their channels. If this is the case, then you will also get more shares and engagement for your content, which will eventually lead to more customers and the potential for growth.
  • Improve your social media following: Likewise, if your guest post gets good views and engagement on influencers’ or bloggers’ sites, then you’re going to attract more viewers to your direction as well. This is because you’re piggy-backing on your contribution to an authoritative brand that vouches for your blog in return.
  • Cement your position as a reliable authority figure in your niche: Reputation can be best built with the help of others. If you want to improve your authority online, guest posting is one of the best ways to do it. When an authority blog or influencer in your market allows you to have a high-quality content posted on their blog, this cements your position as a reliable website or brand in your niche.
  • Improve and cement your backlink profile for search engines: You can then use the kind of “relevance” your blog is getting to cement your backlink profile. When you start tapping into authority sites for posts, you’re likely going to have your post linked back to by people that follow such authority sites. This essentially flows right back to your blog in the form of positive backlink. If you need help in these processes, don’t hesitate to ask for expert assistance. There are specialization sites, such as NO BS Agency, who can do the nitty-gritty for you.

The Bottom Line: Guest Posting Shouldn’t Be Made Difficult

Guest posting shouldn’t be difficult for you and your website. Whether you’re pushing to guest post to other sites or if you’re opening guest posting for them, remember that providing quality content for your respective audiences is the most important. Knowing this, and fitting your content with the brand of your partner site, can help you get the most out of guest posting.

When you implement these strategies, you will usually be able to grow your audience much more quickly than you would by simply posting content and interacting with other accounts. Even though the process takes quite a bit of effort, it is worth it in the end. Once you have an active, engaged audience, promoting your products and services through social media is easy.

Learn More About Your Target Market

The best way to make sure that your followers stay interested and engaged is by learning more about your target market. Once you come to understand your audience, you can do a much better job of tailoring your content and your posting schedule to their needs. Start by figuring out what type of content they prefer. Then, do some research to learn which websites and social networks they spend most of their time on. Once you know more about their habits and preferences, you can do a much better job of tailoring your content to meet their needs.

Put Together A Plan

Posting random content whenever you feel like it isn’t the best way to grow your followers. Instead, you should carefully evaluate their habits to figure out exactly what they prefer. Once you know more about them, you will have a much better idea of how often you should post as well as what type of content will get the most engagement. This will make it much easier for you to hit your goals with social media marketing.

Post Valuable Content

The last thing that you want to do is inundate your followers with promotional posts. People see so many advertisements online that they have a tendency to block them out. A much better approach is to look for ways to add value to the lives of your followers.

For example, if you are a clothing retailer, try creating a post that shows several different ways of styling one of your pieces. If you are promoting a guide, make sure to tell your followers exactly how the guide can benefit them. If you have a service-based business, consider creating how-to blog posts with free tips and information that they can put into action. Every time you add value to your followers’ lives, they trust you a little bit more, making them more likely to turn to you in the future if they need the products or services that you offer.

Create Unique, Engaging Content

When it comes to creating content, your primary focus should be on quality. Don’t try to cut corners when it comes to creating content to share. Instead, go above and beyond to create unique, original content that will keep your followers engaged. For instance, if you are going to post a photo, try to post one that you took yourself rather than relying on stock photos. Because stock photos tend to get used so often, people are more likely to overlook them. If you use original photos, on the other hand, they are more likely to stand out. As an added bonus, when you create your own content, you have complete creative control, meaning that you can make it look exactly the way that you need it to.

Use Influencers To Your Advantage

Search for influencers who are relevant to your brand. Don’t just look for people who have a large number of followers. Instead, look for people who post content that is extremely relevant to the types of products or services that you offer. When done correctly, working with influencers is a highly effective way to promote your brand.

Make Proper Use Of Hashtags

When it comes to reaching more people with your social media content, hashtags are crucial. Adding the right hashtags to your content will help get your posts in front of a lot more potential followers. Avoid using generic hashtags. Instead, think about which hashtags are the most likely to help you get results. As a general rule of thumb, generic hashtags like #fashion or #cute are a bad choice. Even though they get a lot of traffic, they are too general, meaning that the people viewing those hashtags probably aren’t interested in the specific products that you carry. Instead, look for much more targeted hashtags that deal specifically with your business. Although they may not get as many views, the people who are viewing them are usually much more likely to interact with your brand.
