Apple easy, Google fast: The experience management culture

Technology has taken centre stage in the success of companies today. With the likes of Uber, Amazon, and Deliveroo changing the way we live, shop, work and consume content, innovation is happening faster than ever before. In light of economic uncertainty, it’s become even more vital for businesses to deploy cutting-edge technology to maintain competitiveness.

Over the course of the next year, board-level conversations will be dominated by ways to ensure a seamless customer experience, formulating tactics to embrace disruptive technologies, as well as grappling with the implications of the future workplace. 

Digital disruption is affecting nearly all businesses:
Consumers can now order a meal, book a taxi and do their shopping with a few clicks of a button, without even leaving their living rooms. As a result, customers are increasingly expecting services to be ‘Apple Easy’ and ‘Google Fast’ in all aspects of their lives, demanding quick and seamless experiences across the board.

Customer experience management will continue to be a driver of success across all sectors in 2020. For many organizations, this means going back to the drawing board and incorporating customer-centricity at the core of their business models. As digitally native brands take a data-driven approach to provide frictionless experiences, customers will no longer tolerate dated technology with legacy systems and antiquated processes.

In the retail sector for instance, roughly 93 percent of UK internet users are expected to do online shopping by 2021, the highest online shopping penetration rate in Europe. However, as the e-commerce market becomes increasingly saturated, and the high street continues to decline, customer experience will be the central factor to help incumbent brands cut through the noise in the market.

Experience management extends beyond the end user to include other important stakeholders such as suppliers, partners and employees. Over the next 12 months, companies will increasingly need to acknowledge the need for a close link between good employee experience and exceptional customer service.

Engaging and retaining employees requires a big shift in company culture. A data scientist might choose to work in Silicon Valley not just for the financial benefits but for the culture of innovation it fosters and the opportunities to grow.

This results in companies such as Facebook and Uber – already excelling at customer experience – attracting the best talent. To avoid this brain drain, companies must look to emulate this culture and provide similar opportunities on this side of the pond, creating a superior experience for their employees.

How AI is Disrupting Google Search?

How AI is Disrupting Google Search?

 A good view from Eric Enge on how Google is improving its search result quality with Rankbrain – its newish AI powerered algorithm.

However, and it’s a big however, 50% of new millennials don’t use search at all – they are simply told stuff by other people – combined with AI assistants like SIRI and Google NOW being pre-emptive. . . search may actually be decreasing. . .

From Fast company: “A new study offers a peek behind the scenes at how Google structures its search results. The study focuses on how Google’s RankBrain algorithm, which was first announced in October 2015, parses the English language. It’s one of the most detailed efforts to understand the algorithm to date.

“Google improved in about 55% of the queries that they didn’t understand back in July of 2015,” study author Eric Enge told Fast Company. “Honestly, I think that’s pretty amazing.”

Enge, who works for marketing consulting firm Stone Temple, focused on how RankBrain works compared to other Google machine learning products. He then made inferences on RankBrain’s behavior and results, which is something Google has not extensively discussed publicly.

In order to conduct the study, Stone Temple compared a sample set of 1.4 million pre-RankBrain queries to Google’s current search engine. They then analyzed a small remnant of search queries from the older set for which Google didn’t provide appropriate results.

After the launch of RankBrain, 54.6% of search queries that previously returned irrelevant results began returning appropriate results.

Some of these hard-to-resolve searches included queries like “What is low in the army” (Where the searcher is believed to have been searching for “what is low rank in the army”) and “Why are PDFs so weak” (Which, in the older version, first showed PDFs with the word “weak” rather than results about the security of PDF files). Stone Temple also saw what appear to be improvements surrounding specific phrases like “What is,” “Who is,” and “Where is.”

“We also found certain specific classes of phrases they handle better,” Enge said. These certain misspellings, such as when users misspell “Qatar” (the country) as “Cutter.”

One of the things Enge emphasized in the report is that he believes RankBrain has a negligible effect on SEO. He writes that it “simply (does) a better job of matching user queries with your web pages, so you’d arguably be less dependent on having all the words from the user query on your page.” The biggest changes from RankBrain, he added, have to do with increasing search quality and creating a likely framework for Google to apply further machine learning improvements to its search engine”

QuickTalkWithAmod Demystifying SEO Myths Of SMB Owners When Talking To Digital Marketing Agencies

Over the years talking to clients on their SEO projects and it’s been really fascinating to see typical & similar questions coming up in most sales calls.

Question1: I have started my website a year ago, but this competitor of mine is doing roaring business online or this brand company just in the same market wow they have got such a amazing online presence and I want to reach there. How can I do that?

Answer: I think I would really want to appreciate the client’s vision to be able to reach that brand or the competitor.

However, we also need to really understand the kind of effort that has gone into making it a brand or on taking the competitor to that level where they are roaring business.

It’s been a very carefully drafted marketing plans that have implemented not for 1 2 5 but 6 10 years that has got them to this place. In some cases, brands may fast track it by pumping into paid advertising funds & get their brand up very fast.

If that’s your vision, it can be planned that way as well. If you really want to grow organically with lesser resources. Then there is absolutely no second route than to really plan your campaigns well & keep building it organically to the level that you can establish yourself as a brand in the market. And make no mistake it is possible it just needs courage as well and the vision to early-stage yourself to become the online brand.

Question 2: Amod, I have worked with 1, 2 or 3 SEO agencies in the past and I have absolutely zero output & that’s why I’m very skeptical even talking to you.

Answer: This has happened because of the issues from both sides

a) Customer side since the vision not clear & unaware of how to plan it correctly.

b) At the agency’s side, they were not sure of how they would want to grow or not clear on the strategy not doing enough homework on the business to be promoted. And therefore they just offer standard packages X Y and Z. No, it’s no work. As a customer, if you are looking for such kind of packages no matter how many numbers of agencies you work with it will not work. We will have to find agencies that would understand your business, your vision is and then create a joint marketing plan to stage your growth.

Make no mistake you will have to put in the investments needed and therefore you can start small and scale according to your vision. This would be the right way to go about it. Rather than losing time, effort, cost working with agencies packaged deals and it’s your business that’s going to suffer because losing time, the money, etc. Money can be acquired again, but a time that’s lost in a dynamic marketplace like this can be a big loss. Hence the suggestion would be trying to find agencies who really understand your business and able to stage-wise take you to the next level.

Question3: Amod, I am able to understand your line of thought and really agree with approaches staging it to reach the next level. But, because I’ve got a bad experience & not really sure how this is going to go. Can I pay you at a later stage?

Answer: Well if this question has arisen, I think my approach or the way I’ve explained to you had actually not reached you. Because if you are convinced that the approach that was planned for you by understanding your business by staging it to the next level, this question wouldn’t have arisen. You have to be very clear that OK this is the way to go, this is the kind of investments needed to move to the next level and then you can plan it that way.

So commitments in terms of investments are equally important when you are starting out. Of course you can definitely work out modalities in such a way to ensure that the cash flows are not disturbed you can break down the payments in parts perfectly fine so as long as it suits both teams it’s perfectly fine. This is exactly where both teams need to work together. So they can tell each other constraints and work out a model wherein the money moves between the two teams based on how things progress perfectly fine.

But by saying that you would like to pay later it’s like you do not trust your agency.

And if you do not trust your agency results will not come no matter how great that agency is. Therefore show your trust in the agency you pick, make the investments, make a deal in such a way that it is comfortable for both. Slight risk at both ends. Start stage sees how things work and then you can really go on and on and track.

I hope I was able to help demystify some of the myths that exist in SMBs owner’s minds about SEO agencies and I’m sure there be many more.

In recent time every business wants to make their presence on Social Media. Then if you are using Facebook, Twitters, LinkedIn and other social media platforms to promote your business, then you must know about the social media etiquette rules that your business should follow.

If you are trying to break the rules, then your marketing results will plummet.

But no need to worry because there are some copyright rules and regulations for social media that your business needs to follow if you want to stay away from expensive legal trouble?

With that in mind, here we explain some basic copyright rules to follow when you promote your business online and engage with people through social media marketing. There are 5 basic copyright rules are:

  • Assume Your Use is Not Covered by Fair Use
  • Make Sure You Own It (or Have Permission to Use It) before You Publish It

These are the five basic social media copyright rules that you have to follow and avoid copyright infringement. So now we discuss in details about this copyright rules:

1. Assume Your Use is Not Covered by Fair Use:

Fair use could be a sticky, cloudy, messy, confusing, insert similar adjectives of your alternative, slope. Fair use was created to allow limited use of a copyrighted work for reasonable purposes without having to actually get the owner’s permission to use it. Fair use doesn’t mean free use.

Ask yourself these four questions before you deem your use of someone else’s creativity:

  • What is the purpose and character of the use of the work?
  • What is the nature of the copyrighted work?
  • What part of the work was used compared to the whole?
  • What is the effect of the use of the work on the potential value or market of the original copyrighted work?

2. Make Sure You Own It (or Have Permission to Use It) before You Publish It:

Owner and author (or creator) both are different things, and the difference between owner and the author can mean the difference between your getting into big and expensive trouble or not…read more

How Can Audience Profiling Help Reduce Marketing Costs And Improve Online ROI?

Who is your online audience?

In most cases cusotmers say well, this is online right, so anybody can come & see my website.

Well, in this video we are going to see why audience is so crucial for defining online ROI for your business?

There are 3 ways How You Can Define Your Online Audience?
Let’s get start
ed

1) Know Thy Business:

Treat your audience as if you are sitting right in front of customer across the table.

So if you customer is sitting across, before he makes buying decision.
Those questions need to be answered to yourself & then you’re content to be positioned in that manner. Because you would want to talk to your potential customers right?

You won’t want to talk to everyone at the street about your product. You would want to talk to customers who are going to give you time who are interested in buying from you.

Know your business, what are the questions, what are the problems. Do not optimize you online content for search engines, optimize for your customers problems & solutions that you provide to them.
Because, make no mistake your customers are looking at solutions on the web not searching for random website.

2) Purpose Of Your Audience:

Now this will vary from business to business. But you need to clearly understand, identify & established what the purpose of that audience is when he comes to your website or online presence.

  • Is he coming for information?
  • Is he coming to take some action? Or
  • Is he coming to make some transaction? May buying from your store.

That purpose will be very clearly identified, established & presented to your customer.

Because many cases I have seen retail websites, giving away too much information without the main transactional calls. On the other hand I see lot of B2B websites giving a lot of transactional CTAs without providing right information. This is going to take your customer away. As I said customers are going to come to your website for solutions to their problems.

Therefore you need to be able to position yourself, your content, messaging in such a way you & they are very clear when they come online as to what they want & what has been delivered to them.

3) Audience Demography:

This is also an important aspect, but highly overlooked. Because you may have the relevant, engaging content, but if you are not hitting the right demography they you may be losing big opportunities.

Example: Is your business geared towards interacting with CEOs or you are trying to educate mid management through your online presence or you are trying to provide information to base level executives? Is that clear? Is it clear on your website? Do you know who is going to watch that content? Have your positioned your content? If you have very basic information given out & CEOs coming out watching out your content are they going to be impressed at all? No. Or you really give out high end stuff & your audience is the base level executives looking to find information so that he can create reports to present it to his boss, even he is going to get stuck. Because the way they will interpret, deceive for the language is going to be extremely different right?

So you really need to know who is going to read that content & how they are going to interpret it towards taking business actions & business decisions. So understanding of that demography becomes so crucial.
So those were 3 ways of establishing your online audience, there are so many other factors well but I have tried to cover top 3 according to me.

Money Keyword in SEO

Money Keywords In SEO – What Are These And How To Identify Paying Visitors?

Question:

What are the money keywords in SEO?

Answer:

Below is brief about the answer to the question.For detail explanation please watch the video.

Any keyword that generates a relevant click through to your page is a money keyword.

This is in opposition to popular belief that keywords that are highly searched are the money keywords. This may be true for some business domains/verticals.

However, the real game is not bringing in traffic to the website, but to get them to pay for your service or inquire for a future purchase. That is where money changes hands and hence always keep a watch on keywords that bring “relevant traffic” as opposed to “a ton of traffic” to your website.

Example: “latest iPhone X ” may generate a ton of traffic for my iPhone franchise website but am not sure why that search was fired for – did the visitor want to know features or wanted to compare with older versions or wanted to buy that phone. I will get mixed traffic although a lot of it.

Instead, if someone fires in “exchange offer for iPhone X” – does that ring a bell? Does it clearly tell that the visitor is looking for options to buy (rather exchange his phone for another one) – this is money and hence a money keyword? This may have lower traffic volume but highly relevant and targeted.

Hope this blog was helpful to you.

How To Build An Online Business Sustainable Long Term With Changing Technology?

In this ever-changing online world where things changed over six months.
What approach should be taken to be able to grow the online business sustainability?

Very interesting question and to that my answer was If we takes care of these 3 aspects, we would be able to build a sustainable and stable business over the long term.
Let’s see what they are.

1. Intent:
In the online world, a billion searches are happening every day for various reasons. For example, you are an online store selling mobile phones what could be the more pertinent search for you? An iPhone history our latest iPhone X Model which is more relevant for you? The second one Right? Which means understanding the context of what that search is so important for your business.

Because if I were to optimize for iPhone history which has been searched 10K times. It’s not going to bring your business. It just going to bring me traffic where people are trying to search for the iPhone history.

You want people to buy from you, Right? Therefore, capture the intent of the keywords being typed in and then optimize your online presence for that intent. That will always deliver relevant traffic for you and relevant traffic means business.

2) Content:
Once you’ve established intent on the search. You must quickly able to position the content that addresses that specific intent. So if in the previous example: latest iPhone X model Right? The content should be positioned to show various versions of the model, colors & specifications & everything that the user wants to know when he is making that final decision. What’s more? There should be also things like giving him comparisons to other models so that he can make an informed decision and at that place itself.
If he has a query, he should be able to connect with you as well. So positioning that content is so very important. So you understand the intent then you position your content to be able to convert that relevant traffic into an engaged one.

3) Engagement & Enablement:
The part of the content was to ensure that you create your content in such a way that the user remains engaged on your website or your online presence. So there are some questions, he is talking to you, looking at videos, reviews. He is able to ask questions. It’s all engagement.

And once you’ve got him engaged you have to be able to give him the power to make those buying decisions and to be able to simplify his buying experience. So you have an e-commerce facility on your website so he can make that purchase decision. You have a facility where he can request a quote, he can compare models, and you can give him offerings of accessories along with his purchases.
All that is enablement for the customer to make that buying decision.

So if you go through this root INTENT | CONTENT | ENGAGEMENT WITH ENABLEMENT

Irrespective of whatever happens in the online world, technology will change, the competition will increase, and search engines will go up and down. But you are directly targeting the customer. If we do that then that is no harm to business your business would always remain stably sustainable. Yes, you will have to make those changes. You will have to adapt to changing new technology and environment.

But the primary focus is the customer. So if you really understand your customer, you will be able to deliver long term business for your customers and grow your online business.

I hope this blog was helpful. If you have any questions please write to us on the email is shown on your screen.

How Keyword Stuffing Affects Your Website?

How Keyword Stuffing Affects Your Website?

In this #TechKnow Session Parveen explains, how keyword stuffing affects your website?

Keyword stuffing doomsday for your online presence.
The SEO industry has evolved over the last 15 odd years (since 2004 – the year Facebook was launched and Google was just establishing itself) – this question should be answered as – bad legacy from our generation to the next.
Are we still teaching the millennial gen to create content by stuffing keywords?
Let’s please move in the right direction.

To answer your question – Search engines will penalize your content/webpage/website/blog if they find you put in keywords just to rank on their search. Unless you have something valuable for your reader (and search engines track that too) keyword stuffing is end of the road for your website for sure. Your site could be de-indexed permanently (and there are a ton of such examples. Sites that made thousands of dollars per day, were wiped out in an instant).

You should focus on:
Content should read naturally (hence some writing skills to sprinkle your keywords organically in your content)
Understand how search engines read your content? Your Meta content? Learn this thoroughly
Shift focus from search engine to your visitor/reader. That paradigm shift is needed.
Believe that helps!
