2/28/2017 - 5 Services Your Agency Shouldn't Offer in 2017
The success of a marketing agency isn't just tied to what you do (and do well) but also to the services you don't provide. The services we're going to discuss today are -- in our judgment-- firmly in the "don't" column. They're either paths that have already been well-trodden by other big players, obsolete tactics that are starting to lose relevance, or services that don't fit well into the modern marketing playbook. view more…

2/27/2017 - The No BS Approach to Influencer Marketing
Since I’ve been monitoring the topic of “influencer marketing” through BuzzSumo Alerts, the number of articles surfaced has gone from a few per week to 5 or 10 per day. Out of that rising wave of expression from industry websites and blogs is a mix of news, tips, trends and 100% pure B.S. Rising popularity makes things shiny and as influencer marketing enters the shiny object phase, it’s more important than ever to separate the facts from the fake. Whether it’s practices that will get you in hot water with the FTC or the waste of a perfectly good budget on micro-influencer wannabes promising viral hits galore, there are plenty of distractions from realizing true influencer marketing ROI. We’ve been working with influencers in earnest since 2011 and the lessons learned have been invaluable. A big part of what I get to do with our agency is to test ideas and approaches over months and even years in order to bring data-informed recommendations to our clients. I’ll tap into that experience for this post. A BS-free approach to influencer marketing starts with this important understanding: The most practical and useful way to engage influencers in a way that creates value for everyone involved is through content. In fact, 80% of marketers say content marketing is what working with influencers has the greatest impact on. Accept that truth and your path to influencer marketing ROI will be much shorter, painless and enjoyable. In a marketing context, influence is the ability to affect action - not attract 1,000, 100,000 or a million fans, friends and followers. To create action you need content and relationships. Therefore, my definition of influencer marketing is: Developing relationships with internal and industry experts with active networks, to co-create content that helps drive measurable business goals. Let’s break that down: Developing relationships: Most influencer marketing involves the completion of a task. It might be an exchange of money for the creation of video posted to YouTube or occasionally replying via email to a quote request for a roundup blog post. These are both transactions and a transactional approach is not what wins hearts and minds. Companies that approach influencer marketing with relationships in mind, will use co-creation of content to help build those relationships. The stronger the relationships, the better the content and the more actively involved the influencer will be in collaboration and promotion. That means allocating time to connect the dots with influencers and your longer term content and social media plans, monitoring, engagement and communications. Not just an email when you need 50 words for a post on Wednesday. Internal and industry experts: Influence is not limited to one type of person and brands can benefit greatly if they expand their view to include a mix of influencer types. That means looking internally at subject matter experts and executives that, with a little training, could contribute in a very meaningful way. Beyond the professional influencers and industry experts are members of the media, customers, prospective customers and members of any communities that the brand is active in. All must be considered when developing relationships to grow your brand's influence and the influence of those you work with. Active networks: Expertise is not rare. A community of people that are actively paying attention and influenced by a person with knowledge and an opinion is less common and far more valuable for marketing. That means internal and external influencers that publish and engage to attract a network are often better collaboration partners because they have channels of distribution for their work. Co-create content: Without content there is no communication and no influence. It's fine to engage someone with creative talent and a large audience to create media without the brand's proactive involvement. That's less about influencer marketing than hiring someone to make and promote media. An influencer that collaborates with the brand is investing something meaningful into the project and that investment often brings inspiration to make it successful. When a brand is able to pull together a highly relevant group of influencers and has inspired them to see the greater good of the project, it's amazing what can happen with the content and promotion of it. Brands need to find a way to make influencers care about the content and the project's success. If they don't care, they won't share. Drive measurable business goals: Benchmarks and goals are essential for any marketing program and influencer content is no different. Influencer collaborations that are evaluated purely on participation, social shares or advertising equivalency fall short of meaningful ROI. Mapping marketing to business goals is especially important with influencer marketing because the value of influencer collaboration can extend far beyond marketing to PR, customer success, and even talent acquisition. Make sense? A relationship and content-focused approach to influencer marketing makes it a dynamic, responsive and proactive asset that grows in momentum and value over time. “When the brand and influencer relationship is mutually beneficial, both parties are going to get the best results out of the engagement.” Amisha Gandhi, Senior Director of Influencer Marketing, SAP By the way, Amisha and I are teaching an influencer strategy workshop at Content Marketing World on September 5th from 1-4pm. Check it out. Going into an influencer marketing effort with an understand that you’re building something of value over time, not spending value on short term, disconnected campaigns, will make a world of difference in how successful the investment will be. Let’s play a game of calling out influencer marketing B.S. - I’m going to list 5 statements that seem to be making their rounds and you can tell me if you feel they are legit or if they are B.S. 1. Influencer Marketing is best for B2C 2. It’s better to pay influencers for quicker results 3. Influencer Marketing is mostly for big brands 4. Only the famous and socially connected are influential 5. Tools are optional for Influencer Marketing Do you agree with all of these statements? Or just a few of them? Any of them? Please let me know in the comments or on Twitter / LinkedIn / Facebook. Better yet, chime on during the free webinar Ann Handley and I are giving on this very topic Tuesday February 28th at 12pm ET.

2/24/2017 - Online Marketing News: Mobile Email Stats, YouTube Kills 30-Second Ads and Execs on IoT
Your Guide to Email-Open Statistics on Mobiles [Infographic] Well over half of all email users are opening their email on mobile devices. It's important that marketing emails are mobile friendly, because although a majority of emails are being opened on mobile, most conversions are coming from desktop. MarketingProfs YouTube Kills 30-Second Unskippable Mobile Ads for Shorter and More Interactive Formats Beginning on January 1, 2018, YouTube will kill the unskippable 30-second ads users see on mobile videos. Brands can still buy 20-second and 6-second bumper ads. YouTube has reportedly made this change as part of their 'commitment to providing better ad experience'. AdWeek 73% Of Execs See Internet Of Things Impact On Business A recent study showed that 73% of business executives said the Internet of Things had at least some impact on their business, while 21% said it has a major impact. However, there are a number of obstacles in the way - high cost of investment, concerns about security and regulation among others. MediaPost Reports: Digital, especially mobile, driving trillions in offline retail spending Digital media contributed to a reported $1.26 trillion in local retail sales in 2016, according to a recent report from Forrester. This is a large section of the overall $4.5 trillion local retail sales last year. Forrester predicts that in 2021, mobile devices will influence $1.4 trillion in local retail sales. MarketingLand Google to sunset Google Site Search by end of 2017 Search Engine Land reports: "Google has confirmed with Search Engine Land that they are discontinuing support for the Google Site Search product. Google said they are directing those consumers to either the ad-powered product named free custom search engine or the new cloud search product." Search Engine Land Google fights online trolls with new tool The Washington Post reports: On Thursday, [Google] publicly released an artificial intelligence tool, called Perspective, that scans online content and rates how “toxic” it is based on ratings by thousands of people." That 'toxicity score' will help users determine whether or not they want to participate in the conversation. The Washington Post On Snapchat’s Ad Performance, in Comparison to Industry Benchmarks A recent report was published that showed around 69% of SnapChat users either always or often skip ads. That figure increases to 80% among their top audience - 18 to 24-year-olds. But those numbers are far less shocking when compared to other media giants like YouTube and Facebook. Social Media Today Google Reduces Star Rating Threshold: Why Businesses Should Take Notice Google has lowered the threshold of reviews it takes for your 'stars' to show up next to your company's business listings from five reviews to one. To combat the potential negative effects of one bad review, Search Engine Journal has a few tips, like following up with an email, and asking your customers for reviews.
