Google+’s new +Post ads – which were introduced in Beta to some huge brands at the end of 2013 and yesterday were opened up to all brands with 1000 or more Google+ followers – are something of a revolution, combining social media advertising and native advertising together into one. This innovative approach allows Pay-Per-Engagement which could be a game changer when it comes to extending your reach and growing your following.
This is the second post in a two-part series on helping digital marketers and website owners develop a framework for an effective content marketing strategy. It will make most sense if you have read part one, which covers the essential stage of preparation in detail.

If you work in digital marketing or own a website then this post is for you. It’s the first part in a series of posts about exactly what you need to do to create an effective content marketing strategy. Anyone can create content, and it’s not that hard to create great content. It is, however, not so easy to create the right content that is presented in the best way possible at the most appropriate time to make people do what you want them to do. That takes some skill, so if you want to increase your know-how and get better results have a read of this.
Today will mark the sad occasion of my last newsletter. Like the inevitability of Miley Cyrus’ staggering array of public outbursts leading to rehab, there’s only so many times you can challenge people on the street to tiger bread fencing matches before you’re carted off in a white van.
While I’m still allowed to be near a computer, however, I might as well bring you up to speed on recent events in SEO. Although the handcuffs make it difficult to type, you can expect offensive defence from Bing, a new animal update from Google and a crazed popcorn fan. Continue Reading
There are many things that, while socially unacceptable, are fairly enjoyable pastimes. And it would appear that attempting to write a newsletter in Jamie’s Italian while dressed in a morph suit listening to Harry Potter audio books is one of them.
