Should You Break Eggs to Make IT Marketing Omelets?

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

IT Marketing

When it comes to IT marketing online, is it or isn’t it a messy process? Often, an MSP usually has some existing rankings before they hire an SEO firm to boost them to top-ranked status. Many novices to the internet marketing game might assume the process will be extremely orderly and they should see their MSP website just start moving right up rankings until they are on the top. However, is this a realistic expectation or is there any reason to believe successful SEO is more like having to break eggs to make omelets?

 

Competition is a Factor

Never underestimate your IT marketing competition’s response to your website suddenly overtaking their ranking. Do you really believe they will just stand idly by and watch your meteoric rise to top-ranked status? On the contrary, many of your IT competitors will have the attitude that you will move ahead of them on the Google index over their dead body. Of course, you can expect a volley of internet marketing updates that rival your SEO moves that can push you back down in the short term. If IT providers ignore their competition’s influence on their internet marketing initiatives, then it will cost them dearly. This is one of the contributing factors to a messy game of SEO where an MSP website come move up and then back down, before enough momentum and be achieved to finally slingshot past all the competition.

Google Indexing is a Factor

The other issue that can cause the IT marketing process of getting a website top ranked is the fact that there are many changes that must be enacted to transform the sites rankings. These changes can range from the creation of new pages, updating the URL, adding keywords, blogs, backlinks etc. These changes will cause your website to get re-indexed. The process of having Google re-index your website can be very scary as it can cause your site to temporally disappear off the index completely. Once your website is finally re-indexed, it can often reappear in a lower position that it has previously been indexed. This process can be racking and is very messy indeed! However, if the internet marketing is implemented correctly it will cause your MSP website to ultimately rise to the top.

 

If you’re currently in the process of marketing your website, then it’s important that you have a realistic expectation about the process. If you know in advance that you could see your website move up and down in its position several times and even disappear temporally, then these won’t shack your nerves and cause you to lose confidence in the process. This is the ultimate danger as many MSPs that aren’t forewarned about the messy process will lose confidence and pull out early, so consider your MSP business to be forewarned that a successful IT marketing campaign will be like having to break some eggs to make omelets!

Your MSP Business Strategy Must Account For a Continuously Fluctuating Market

Thursday, August 10th, 2017

MSP BusinessPersistent Change

Every MSP business has always dealt with change. Change is an essential component of any economic ecosystem. But change today is different than change several hundred years ago. The current free market system allows natural competition between businesses that grow unimpeded— well, mostly unimpeded. Let’s not get into unjust taxation here. The point is when free market ideals were initially endorsed several hundred years ago, economic transition was slower than today. As technology has advanced, so has economic flux. This is especially true in the information age characterizing modernity. Today, everything changes continually— this is especially true in technology. With that in mind, the following are four advisable characteristics your business would definitely benefit from adopting if you haven’t already: (more…)

Have You Got Burned by Companies Promising Their MSP Blogs Will Work?

Monday, July 17th, 2017

TANSTAAFL: There Ain’t No Such Thing as A Free Lunch

If you want successful MSP blogs, remember TANSTAAFL. This acronym describes a very real principle: there’s nothing in life for free. Anything worth doing takes work. It’s the same with SEO, and an effective marketing strategy accounts for the principle. Time, discipline, strategy, implementation, augmentation, and professionalism will yield success— but you can’t throw in the towel too early. Here are five steps toward optimizing your SEO strategy for greatest effectiveness:

• Get Your Head Around What Makes Up Top Ten Blog Posts
• Know What The Proven On-Page Process For Blog Posts Is
• Ensure Blogs You Post Have Real, Usable Value For Readers
• AIDA (Awareness, Interest, Desire, Action) Can Draw Clients
• Make Blog Posts Include Inbound Links (Broken Link Strategy)

Top Ten Blog Post Anatomy

Many MSP blogs fail not because the SEO strategy involved is sub-par, but because there isn’t enough “follow-through”. Many MSPs quit running the marketing race halfway through. They could have won if they kept at it, but grew tired too early. There is no instant gratification, and that’s the biggest enemy of marketing: impatience. At its core, internet marketing takes time and is fundamentally concerned with original article layout. To get in the top ten, you have to create quality content with actionable links that have enough exposure to steadily grow. Figure out what readers want in their “prose”, as well as what they’re trying to fix. Start with something catchy–your headline should grab the mind. A good picture is essential followed by an excellent introduction, the points that make your case, a conclusion, feedback invitation, and related posts for either sharing or comments.

Know Proven On-Page Processes

You want organic results; users are going to ignore them otherwise. You want a page layout conducive to reading and sharing. Quality content and other aspects of the page must be strategically designed. You’ve even got to get as in-depth as HTML coding because Google algorithms parse this to find matching results. Do it right and you’ll drive traffic from sites like Google for you.

Usable Value

Blogs must have useful information for your clients. You can’t just have word-salad. You want strategies, practices, tips, and things worth reading, sharing, and putting to use in an individual’s life. Use yourself as a template–you understand your MSP’s advantages and how to make the best use of them. What secrets can you give that won’t undercut your business model? These will be useful.

AIDA

Your blogs need to make readers Aware of your services and Interested in them. This will facilitate Desire, followed by Action— AIDA strategy. Do it right and you’ll draw in clients through your content, and even make some conversions.
Inbound Links
So some web pages go defunct, but still have links from content riddled throughout the internet. Too many broken links are bad for a search engine. Look for competitors who had content before, and went by the wayside— ask to substitute your links for theirs. Inbound links done right are very effective.

Is There a Google University That Teaches How to Write Top Ranked MSP Blogs?

Monday, July 17th, 2017

MSP MarketingSearch Engines Are Prolific

MSP blogs don’t come with a manual. Unless you go with a professional agency, you’ve got to learn things the hard way through trial and error. Google actually doesn’t want you to know how to get top-ranked. You’ll find no classes which will help you write top content on Google University. If there were such classes, Google would have to change their algorithms. It would basically be like giving savvy marketers and MSP businesses a hack to search engines.

The vast majority of people use search engines–specifically Google–in order to accomplish online aims. As a matter of fact, some 92% of adults in the US will make use of search engine tech in order to expedite online usage. (more…)
