The effectiveness of geo-targeting is only going to further improve as mobile use grows and location data becomes more accurate and available. The Local Search Association (LSA) just released data that found that, for the first time, mobile devices surpassed PC use in search for local businesses and services. As I reported last month, the majority of searches (52%) for local information on mobile devices occur either in the car or away from home or work.


Auf diese Weise hat die junge Anwältin mit relativ wenig Aufwand herausgefunden, wie sie sich gegenüber den Platzhirschen ihrer Branche am Markt behaupten kann. Sie hat in die Tat umgesetzt, was in Fachbüchern mit Begriffen wie SWOT-Analyse oder Stärken-Schwächen-Analyse beschrieben wird. Was so klingt, als bräuchte man dafür eine wissenschaftliche Ausbildung und mehrere Monate Zeit, lässt sich also ganz einfach auf ein Normalmaß herunterbrechen, das sich in angemessener Zeit bearbeiten lässt. Das Ergebnis ihrer Analyse kannst du übrigens in ihrem Businessplan nachlesen.
1. Bedrohung durch neue Wettbewerber: Neue Wettbewerber erhöhen den Druck auf bereits bestehende Unternehmen auf dem Markt. Je niedriger die Markteintrittsbarrieren, desto leichter können neue Wettbewerber sich auf dem Markt positionieren. Für Sie als Gründer ist es deshalb wichtig, die Eintrittsbarrieren genau zu studieren, um so die Gefahr durch neue Konkurrenten einschätzen zu können.
You should always track and monitor the effectiveness of your PPC campaign. You should know what things are working for you in a better way. If you are publishing your ads on the Google search platform using the Google Adwords tool, use Google Analytics to get better insights into searcher’s behavior. You should measure the bounce rate of your website. Bounce rate will tell you how many searchers visited your site but did not perform any action. You should also track CTR and conversion rate of your campaign. This will help you to optimize your PPC campaign and your landing page.
Twitter is also a great place to get guidance about what's popular as it relates to your search terms. Just type a word or phrase into the search bar and see what trending topics come up. You can also use social media monitoring tools like Hootsuite, which allows you to create a stream based on a particular phrase and monitor mentions of it, or TweetReach, which gives you a similar quick analysis. 
Subtracting the COGS, FBA fees, and Miscellaneous from the Selling Price leaves $9 in profit per unit (27-4-11-3=9). So we can spend up to $9 to get a sale and still be profitable. To calculate our ACoS threshold for our break-even point, simply divide the net income from the Selling price, ie $9/$27=.33. This leaves us with a 33% ACoS threshold, meaning that we would be making money on any keyword that has a Cost of Sale at 33% or less.
E' importante tenere presente che, anche la concorrenza impiega strategie PPC per la loro pubblicità su internet, quindi posizionarsi nelle prime posizioni non è mai un compito facile. Con i nostri servizi di Ottimizzazione PPC , potete aumentare e solidificare il CTR e le conversioni delle vostre Campagne PPC, in modo da essere sempre un passo avanti rispetto alla concorrenza.
The basic content strategy you’ve put together—what you want to create, and how—should give you a good place to start. Now it’s time to break that strategy into potential topics and keywords to cover on your channel. Once you have a topic, like “dog training” or “styling a scarf” you can start to test the relevant words and phrases you think customers will search to find answers.
If you take a look at our recent Million Dollar Case Study recap, Greg shows how he is investing more heavily at the start in our product Jungle Snugs, even when the ACoS is more than break even. Also keep in mind, this money is being taken out of your top line revenue from Amazon, rather than cash being removed from your bank account. So we see it more as an early investment from our top line to ensure success later down the line.

Längst nicht jedes Produkt kannst du im Alleingang und vollumfänglich selbst herstellen. Sofern du ein neues oder verbessertes Produkt auf den Markt bringen willst, bist du von Lieferanten abhängig. Finde heraus, wie viele Lieferanten es gibt – je weniger, desto höher deren Verhandlungsmacht. Überlege, wie du dir die Gunst deiner Lieferanten sichern kannst und was du unternimmst, wenn deren Gunst schwindet.


To keep things simple, you may try IP based redirects on your server. You can setup simple redirects based on geolocation, using .htaccess or httpd.conf on your Apache server (mod_geoip). The GeoIP API (MaxMind) will enable you to quickly configure your server to divert traffic according to the originating IP. Your web analytics and optimization should do the rest. All you need to make sure it that you have a couple of landing pages to test your assumptions on.

Because of our idea that you should have one brand and several (hundreds) keywords, we’re not big fans of keyword domains at Yoast either. By using a keyword domain you bind your companies past, present and future to a single keyword. And with the abundance of new top level domains (TLDs) now available, you’ll have a very hard time buying all of the TLDs with the same keyword to keep out the competition.


More specifically, who gets to appear on the page is based on and advertiser’s Ad Rank, a metric calculated by multiplying two key factors – CPC Bid (the highest amount an advertiser is willing to spend) and Quality Score (a value that takes into account your click-through rate, relevance, and landing page quality). This system allows winning advertisers to reach potential customers at a cost that fits their budget. It’s essentially a kind of auction. The below infographic illustrates how this auction system works.
Another easy, yet possibly expensive, way of testing geo-location is using a PPC platform such as AdWords. You can set your campaign targeting to very specific locations and languages, as well as set the destination URLs of your individual ads. Similarly, this will require a set of landing pages for each campaign, but delivers results very quickly. You may be able to run a fast, data rich, and location-based conversion analysis with little more.
If you are launching in a competitive category and you know this to be the case, then you may indeed have to invest more heavily at the start to get ahead. It obviously varies by product and category, and this is why we often advise new sellers to go for non-competitive categories with high demand. That’s not to say you should never launch in a competitive category though – and props to you for going for it!
Hi!! Newbie here! So my boss wants our product to be the first few products to be shown at the top when you search for example “plus size tops”. I am using Manual campaign, added “plus size tops” to keywords, using suggested bid with a daily budget at $50. However, I still don’t see our product whenever I search using “plus size tops”. What am I doing wrong?
This chapter will discuss how to best structure your campaign within Google AdWords. These basic building blocks are campaigns and ad groups contained within those campaigns. How you structure this will depend upon your business and marketing and the main takeaway here is that there is no single way to structure a campaign. Just be mindful of what matters when it comes to advertising and measuring the results of your campaign.
Just like in your title, you’ll want to prioritize using your keyword at the beginning of your description, although it doesn’t have to be the first word in the sentence according to YouTube. This is a good signal to YouTube that yes, your video is actually about that keyword, but it can also help users decide they’ve found what they’re looking for and that they should watch your video.

Hey Israel, that certainly would make sense…..the most important thing to do is focus on the relevancy of the search term to your product, with the key question being: “is this customer likely to purchase my product?” of course you don’t know for certain, but unlike Google AdWords or Facebook, you are not trying to get impressions to build brand awareness, you only want a sale. you can also use the Keywords section (up to 5000 characters) to target these keywords which are you are not certain about. I’d recommend combing through your Search Term Report to see which searches actually result in a sale. Hope this helps!

16. 16 @peakaceag pa.ag Was ist das Google Live-Label? Seit Oktober 2015 als fortwährender Test in den mobilen SERPs vorhanden! Basiert nicht auf strukturierten Daten (á la Schema.org), sondern wird geparsed.

It doesn’t take a marketing expert to know that marketing is a complex endeavor. With so many moving pieces, it can be hard to decide what you should focus on. What mediums do you prioritize? How do you narrow down your target audience? How do you rank better on search engines? Should you have a social media campaign? And if so, which social media platform should drive that campaign? And where in the world do you even begin to dig into this stuff?
Keyword research is a time consuming and continuous activity. Create your list of core keywords at the time of campaign planning and you should constantly refine and expand your keyword list for long-tail, low cost and highly relevant keywords. Another important step in keyword research is to review high cost, under performing keywords. Remove these keywords from your list.
When setting up conversion experiments that test different page elements, it may be valuable to make a prior segmentation that is location-based. Testing different ideas and approaches when location is taken into account, usually creates very interesting insights. What will work better for your funnel – showing your traffic from Spain pages in Spanish or English? Will you quote Euro or Dollar?

In reality, even profitability focused campaigns will have limits when it comes to budget, so our focus is often maximizing profitability within the budget we have allotted. This can mean bringing in fewer conversions at a lower cost per acquisition (CPA) and eliminating elements of campaigns that are under performing compared to your acceptable conversion goal. Mining search query reports, establishing negative keywords, bidding down on keywords with high CPA’s or no conversions are all techniques we employ in order to maximize our profitability within the parameters given.
The use of semantic search has completely changed the way we perform modern search queries today. A decade ago, people stuck with what was short and simple. If they wanted to find the best pizza places in New York City, they would type in “Pizza New York.” However, with Google’s Hummingbird update and the algorithmic improvements to semantic searches, people now are more inclined to type in “Where is the best pizza place in New York City.”

Brands love to be front and center and who can blame them? Essential to becoming a well known brand is achieving awareness and name recognition, and well branded companies tend to do well at drawing in new customers. In the world of search, the best way to build your brand is by showing up in the top position of search results. Preferably you can do this for both organic and paid results, but at the very least you can often buy your way to the top of search results with a high enough Maximum CPC bid. You will also want to enhance your brand even further by adding Sitelinks to your account to showcase the depth of products and services you offer and occupy even more real estate in search results.
Once you know your target audience, you can easily aim your advertisements towards areas where your target audience would be. Bonobos, an online male clothing store, did a great job of this when they were launching their Guide Shops pop-ups. The “store” would serve purely as a try on and styling area. Once you ordered clothes, they’d be sent to your house directly.
To make the most of that investment, it’s important to plan for keywords that you know are a good fit for your brand, and that people are already searching for. Afterwards, optimizing your videos to help YouTube make the match for those keywords is critical. It’s one of the best ways to ensure your videos will work hard for your business long after you’ve published them.
Instead of immediately sponsoring a Search Engine Marketing (SEM) campaign for certain keywords, keep an eye on your competitors for the best moment to do it. An SEM campaign implies a daily expenditure that most companies can’t afford long-term, so they won’t keep it up for long. If you are determined to spend some money on it, don’t just go crazy and then measure your ROI. After 3 – 4 months of watching, you should know if it’s worth it for your business to spend money on search engine ads. For an advanced strategy, try to identify your competitors’ timing for purchasing search engine ads, and try to replace them when they are not actively sponsoring results.
Repeat this exercise for as many topic buckets as you have. And remember, if you're having trouble coming up with relevant search terms, you can always head on over to your employees on the front lines -- like Sales or Services -- and ask them what types of terms their prospects and customers use, or common questions they have. Those are often great starting points for keyword research.
Probieren Sie allgemein gehaltene Keywords aus, um herauszufinden, womit Sie die besten Ergebnisse erzielen. Auch allgemeine Keywords sollten immer möglichst relevant für Ihre Anzeigen und Ihre Website sein. Vermeiden Sie jedoch identische Keywords in Ihrem Konto, da von Google immer nur eine Anzeige pro Werbetreibendem und Keyword ausgeliefert wird.

Use Google Keyword Planner and your list of potential search ideas to create a list of terms/phrases that align with your brand and that, ideally, aren’t highly competitive. Google ranks competitiveness in Keyword Planner, seen above. You can also get an idea of how competitive a keyword search is by looking at the price of the suggested Adwords bid. Competitive search terms are typically much harder to rank for.
Damit hat sie automatisch alles richtig gemacht. Das Ziel einer Wettbewerbsuntersuchung ist es nämlich nicht, den Bankberater davon zu überzeugen, wie rosig die Erfolgsaussichten des eigenen Unternehmens sein werden, sondern sich selbst – in Abgrenzung zu den bestehenden Angeboten – am Markt zu positionieren. Im Unterschied zur Marktanalyse, die viel zahlenlastiger ist und in der es darum geht, wie groß der Zielmarkt ist, wie er sich entwickelt, wie viel Umsatz gemacht wird und wie viele Unternehmen es gibt, beschreibt die Wettbewerbsanalyse, wie diese Unternehmen agieren. Welche strategischen Ziele verfolgen sie? Wie treten sie auf?
If you're struggling to think of more keywords people might be searching about a specific topic, go to Google.com and take a look at the related search terms that appear when you plug in a keyword. When you type in your phrase and scroll to the bottom of Google's results, you'll notice some suggestions for searches related to your original input. These keywords can spark ideas for other keywords you may want to take into consideration.

These days, organic SEO is all about creating the highest quality content that is actionable and informative around a specific topic. While your content will no doubt contain keywords referencing said topic in places like heading tags and body copy, search engines are well-versed at filling in gaps about content topics without needing to be bludgeoned by keywords. Keyword research can never—and should never—be used as a crutch for poor content quality. However, exercises like those described below, can play very important roles in helping you define and measure your content strategy as well as mapping your content topics to real users’ needs. Words matter. 
As I hope I’ve illustrated, in the golden age of martech, it’s time to stop squandering valuable website visits on impersonal, generic experiences. You can now leverage useful information about where your visitors are coming from and, by extension, come up with creative offers that will be relevant for them. Small details significantly enhance customer experience, and I hope you can use the above three examples as a springboard for some experiments of your own.

In order to develop the best recommendations for actions regarding your internet strategy, specialists from the specific fields business economics (strategy, marketing), communications, design, web programming and search engine optimization work together and use applied analysis methods from the corporate analysis, market and competitive analysis (selected competitors), marketing research, market observation and competitive intelligence, media analysis and internet marketing analysis (incl. keyword analyses, internet market competition analyses). mediadefine.com
If you aren’t aware of buzzwords in your industry or the terms your potential audience will search to try to find you, you need to do some more research or you will definitely be losing people. In Jerry’s case, he has office space for rent as individual desks in a common room. He needs to realize that the term his potential audience will use to search for that is ‘coworking’. A five-minute keywords change would provide Jerry with a clearer vision of his website’s performance and a greater likelihood of being found through search. Check out the revised keywords below:

Chris Gale, Client Services Director at Odyssey Mobile Interaction says: "As location-based services continue to grow, more of our clients are exploring proximity marketing via mobile. When applying 'geo-targeting' to our clients’ mobile marketing campaigns, it enables us to reach the right audience, in the right place, at the right time. By being able to add a deeper layer of relevance to the message, our clients have experienced higher levels of engagement amongst users."


Working on common practice tasks such as negative matching, keyword expansion and more are the right things to do for an account, and there’s a proper place and time to do them. Without a policy governing how to manage our PPC accounts, we’re “stringing tactics together,” which creates misalignment between volume of work done versus meaningful work that’s impacting results positively.
Say your e-commerce site focuses on college students. Target promotions to local coffee shops within a couple miles of your store front that students frequent. Students that bring in a receipt from the coffee shop to your brick and mortar store get a special discount. You can push this email campaign to users that are within a 10 mile radius of the coffee shop and your store.

With a clear understanding of our objectives and audience, we can now determine how we want to target our prospects across the AdWords network. There are multiple targeting options available, from location to demographics and display ads to video ads. The trick is to tailor your adverts to deliver the best results based on how your users browse the web. This chapter provides you with the primary elements required to accurately target your campaign.


Nehmen Sie mit der Checkliste von formblitz Schritt für Schritt Ihre Wettbewerber ins Visier. Die Konkurrenzanalyse für Existenzgründer ist auch als Bestandteil für Ihren Businessplan verwendbar. Zentraler Bestandteil dieser Checkliste sind die Stärken und Schwächen Ihres Mitstreiter, Lösungsvorschläge, wie Sie als Existenzgründer diese Dinge besser machen werden. Mit diesem Dokument können Sie bis zu vier Wettbewerber hinsichtlich Marktposition, Preispolitik und Marketingstrategie vergleichen.
For example, it’s important to look at the response based on urban, suburban or rural locations. Someone living in northern Indiana may consider driving 25 miles to your store to be no big deal. Most customers or prospects could make the drive in less than half an hour and, therefore, they will visit your store. However, if the prospects live in the River North neighborhood of Chicago, they aren’t going to want to go to your store in Wrigleyville because that’s going to take 50 minutes.
If you don't know the difference between head terms and long-tail keywords, let me explain. Head terms are keywords phrases that are generally shorter and more generic -- they're typically just one to three words in length, depending on who you talk to. Long-tail keywords, on the other hand, are longer keyword phrases usually containing three or more words.

It's important to check that you have a mix of head terms and long-tail terms because it'll give you a keyword strategy that's well balanced with long-term goals and short-term wins. That's because head terms are generally searched more frequently, making them often (not always, but often) much more competitive and harder to rank for than long-tail terms. Think about it: Without even looking up search volume or difficulty, which of the following terms do you think would be harder to rank for?
After setting your campaign goal and choosing the right platform for your ad, the next step is to plan your ad targeting for your most relevant audience. There are two types of targeting. You can target audience for a specific geographic location and you can also optimize your campaign for a specific device type, operating systems and wireless networks.

Use these consumer characteristics to time and target your marketing. For example, airports on weekdays are a great source of business travelers looking for high-end restaurants, while weekends and Spring Break bring more leisure visitors and families looking for more casual dining options. Likewise, dance clubs and bars can benefit by promoting 18 and over events targeted at universities whose student bodies are largely between the ages of 18-21. These are just a few examples of how venues define audiences that can be effectively targeted.
One of the best tools you can use to do your keyword research directly on YouTube is Keywords Everywhere, a free Chrome extension and Firefox plugin. It works directly in the search bar, so all you have to do is type in a word or phrase you’re thinking of targeting, and Keywords Everywhere will display the monthly search volume, competition, and cost per click to advertise against the keyword.

IT is more cost-effective to target already existing demand to increase your market share for more qualified leads.

And be sure to subscribe to our blog for weekly updates on the most innovative industry-leading tactics!
Once your ad is displayed, it’s likely to be clicked by only a tiny percentage of people who search for such a broad term, making it less likely to be displayed in the future. And even if you create an ad that’s broad enough for those searchers to reliably click, they’re unlikely to find exactly what they’re looking for on your landing page. You’re paying a lot for poor-quality traffic.
Instead of immediately sponsoring a Search Engine Marketing (SEM) campaign for certain keywords, keep an eye on your competitors for the best moment to do it.

The Java program is fairly intuitive, with easy-to-navigate tabs. Additionally, you can export any or all of the data into Excel for further analysis. So say you're using Optify, Moz, or RavenSEO to monitor your links or rankings for specific keywords -- you could simply create a .csv file from your spreadsheet, make a few adjustments for the proper formatting, and upload it to those tools.
