At this point, it’s fair to assume that everyone has heard about the importance of content marketing lately, and it’s clear that for a digital marketing campaign to be successful, creating interesting and useful unique content has to be a major consideration. We’ve written a few posts about it over the past few months, and we even run a conference dedicated to making the most out of it. So, what do we do to create brilliant content for our clients? Some of our favourite kinds of content are below.
In this week’s Internet Marketing Podcast Kelvin interviewed Natasha Woodford. Kelvin and Natasha recently started their own digital recruitment business called Clockwork Talent. The recruitment business, which is located in the old terminal building at Gatwick airport, aims to find the right jobs for the right people.
Kelvin and Natasha talk about the recruitment process and some of the things that work well in recruitment, they also provide some helpful tips that employers, recruiters or indeed candidates can do to find the right person at the right time.
Google has been personalising everyone’s searches more and more – with that it’s necessary for us SEO’s to understand the effects of this and why certain search results appear when the conventional rules of SEO don’t apply.
This is a very important issue to consider especially if you’re servicing a local area with your products. Depending on the location of where you’re searching you’ll be receiving different tailored results. For instance, shops which have different locations will feature differently depending on where you’re searching from.
Your location history is also taken into account, this includes smart phone, desktop and laptop searches regardless of the fact if you’ve turned off the location sharing option. Google will look at your previous activity that corresponds to your previous locations and tie that in with its suggestions and ranking results.
In this week’s episode of the Internet Marketing Podcast, Kelvin and Andy discuss Google penalties. Nowadays, it’s a lot more likely for websites to be affected by a Google penalty. But not every drop in your rankings automatically means that you have been penalised. Through the invention of Google’s Webmaster Tools, they’ve been increasingly helpful in letting webmasters know if they have been penalised or not. Andy and Kelvin also discuss what to do when receiving a Google Penalty Message.

It’s that time of year again where the digital marketing world pays Brighton a visit.
BrightonSEO conference tickets sold out in a flash and once again we’re expecting big numbers, over 2,000 digital marketers from around the globe will be walking through those famous Brighton Dome doors for a 2 day digital extravaganza of workshops, roundtable events and presentations.
One of the hardest things once you’ve created a website is not to maintain it but to build a following and a fan base. Obviously coming up with a unique idea for your site in the first place is a long process but when you’ve got past that initial hurdle you’ll begin the quest of trying to build up your name.
Who are your fans?
You need to take a step back and analyse who you’re chasing. If you don’t do this research I don’t think you’ll fully be able to grow your fan base properly. Split them into groups, stick with 3-4 as these will be your strongest target audiences. So if you were promoting a music site, you’d perhaps circle – artists, producers and avid listeners of a particular music genre.
In this week’s episode of the Internet Marketing Podcast Kelvin and Andy give us some insights into Graph Search, which is the new search engine from Facebook. The idea behind Graph Search is that you can look up anything that has been shared with you on Facebook, and others can find everything you’ve shared with them. This helps you to find people, places and things and explore Facebook in a totally new way. At the moment, Graph Search is only available to a small bunch of test users, but as soon as it is rolled out it is expected to become very influential and important for individuals as well as for businesses.
