Use Tumblr Blog Feed to update your website’s content

Hello Everyone and season greetings!  I hope your holiday season is going well so far. I just wanted to take the time to introduce a new content management service from Allshouse Designs. The service basically makes it possible to have a search engine friendly integration of a Tumblr blog onto your business’ website. If you haven’t used Tumblr before. Check it out, even Jimmy Fallen uses it for the Tonight Show. I have installed the service onto allshousedesigns.com and on our latest client’s website Miss Erica’s Piano Studio.

Tumblr in general is a great blogging network. I like to describe it as if Facebook and WordPress  got married and had a baby. The baby would be Tumblr.  With Tumblr you are able to upload videos, pictures, content, links and more. My favorite feature is that you can have your blog post auto populate your business’ Twitter feed and Facebook wall. I am really enjoying it myself and it as motivated me to post more information for my clients to help them with their online marketing needs.

If you are interested in this type of service contact Alec Allshouse  and I will happy to let you know what it will take to integrate a Tumblr blog feed into your business’ website.

Want Site Traffic? Learn How Blogging Lures Visitors to You

Producing great content is a strategy that a few businesses overlook.  Let’s take this example: you just had your site designed (or redesigned).  You’ve got all of the features where you want them, the copy is crisp, the coloring is smart, and the back-end is search optimized.  Now what?

If no one is coming to your site to look at it, then it’s not doing its job.  Luring traffic in, whether for the first time or a repeat, is an important step in the process.  And the key to doing that is to show how valuable you are, how great your ideas are, how generous you are with solutions.  Providing content is a killer way to do just that.  Even better, a collection of great content builds on itself.  It compounds and expands.  As long as you keep adding content, you’ll have some great momentum going.

Consider these ways that you can use content to get attention and draw people to your site.

Blogging

Posting blogs that your audience agrees are useful is a great way to attract traffic to your site.  How do you find out what they think is useful?  Talk to your customers or clients and find out what their biggest worries and problems are in your expertise, and blog about those things.  The result: you’ll be the reliable, approachable, smart source that takes care of them.

Don’t be afraid to give away your whole process for free on the blog—if someone reading it has a DIY mindset, then they wouldn’t buy from you anyway.  Or, alternatively, they try what you do and realize that it’s easier just to hire you.  Your customers or clients ultimately want to pay for you to tailor your offerings to their situation—after all, you’re the expert here!

Aggregating

One option is to search the internet for topics that your readers care about and post a collection of those resources on your site.  There are three main benefits to this approach:

  1. You are recognized as a thought leader.
  2. You build a community who follow your posts and are eager to see what you choose to include.
  3. You get the attention of the original authors, who may share your content with their audience in turn.

But remember to post your reactions with a link.  Give credit to the writer, attribute the piece, and link back to the article.  Don’t, under any circumstances, copy and paste the entire article and post that on your site—even if you give credit.  It’s bad for SEO, and it’s generally seen as malicious.

Offering to Guest Post

Guest posting is where you reach out to another blogger that your audience might read and offer to write a post for them.  These blogs could be local or community blogs as easily as they might be interest blogs.

When you offer to write for them, the blog owner gets to take a break and let you teach the audience something that they wouldn’t be able to.  You, of course, get exposure with their audience.  The result is cross-pollination in the blog world, and everyone is happy—the audience learns more, the blogger looks well-connected by bringing you in, and you get to talk to folks that you might not have been able to otherwise.

Are you thinking about ways that you can share your knowledge, cultivate recognition, and bring traffic to your site?  What topics does your audience care about?  What topics will you write about?  Tell us what you think with your reply

What You Need To Know About Designs

If you think that web design is just about the stuff you can see, you’re not alone.  In reality, web design is also about bringing all of the back-end pieces together while talking to search engines so people can find your site.

Let’s look at a few of the pieces—both front and back—that you need to make an effective website.

Page Layout

The way that the features of your site are presented speaks to your target audience.  There is a certain cadence in where things are placed on a page.  And you have your choice of any number of feeds, text boxes videos, images, shows, features, forms, and other pieces to work into your page.  The way that those are set up should lead your visitors toward a certain goal—often that will be to buy or contact you.

Remember your layout needs to be intuitive and clear for the people you want to look at your site.  More often than not, that means that it should be accessible for people even if they’re not tech savvy.  Sometimes, too, you might need to keep a single element consistent on every page of your site—often this will be a menu.  And also, be sure to read through everything on your site.  Make sure it’s consistent—if you ask someone to contact you, have a contact form on the page.

Font Choice

There are literally thousands—maybe millions—of fonts available.  Which do you choose?  Generally, you have your choice of one font for body text, one for header text, and maybe one or two more that you use for special bits like an image.  The text that you choose will inform people on the tone of your site, so pick a combination that speaks to your audience clearly and on their level.  You can be serious, factual, comical, casual, gaudy—whatever.  But never use a font that’s hard to read!

The Coding Question

It’s not uncommon to find a designer that is more involved with the appearance of a site.  In some cases, it’s good for your designer to know how to code.  Like if your project is especially intricate, custom, or specialized.  In these cases, you might need to seek out a designer who is also comfortable working deep in code.

On the other hand, there are a lot of solid options for templates and pre-built platforms.  If you’re on a budget, don’t have any needs that are out of the ordinary, or just want to see the work get done, it makes more sense to just find a designer who can use and work with those templates.  Usually, that includes setting up the back-end so that search engines can find you easily.

What’s your web design project like?  Have you got an idea of how you want your site laid out?  Have you found a couple of fonts that you like?  Determined if you need a custom-coded site or if a well-designed template will do?  Let us know with your reply!

Marketing your business

Local Businesses: How to Get Better SEO from Everyday Marketing. It’s no secret that if your business works on a local level, selling or serving people in your community, that you’ve got a whole different set of challenges than a national or international business. But you also have some advantages that you hold over larger enterprises.

Take search engine results, for example. Many search engines give priority listings to local businesses when a relevant search comes up. And on top of that, local results will often come up first if the searcher is using a mobile device. If you’re a local business, you’re probably already getting the word out to people that you’re around so you can do business—this is just another way to get more leverage out of the things you’re already doing!

So how do you boost your online presence to become a local leader? Let’s take a look at a few things you can do to get more out of your marketing.

Community Involvement

Some people have their priorities completely backwards. They think that ranking high on a search engine is more important than going out and meeting with the people that they work and live around. These folks ought to flip their strategy on its head!

Search engines can and do take into account where your business shows up, especially if it’s involved in community activities. And you might think that some SEO holdovers are going to be enough to reach and hang on to the top spot—but they’re not. If you can choose between link building and shaking hands, go and meet people!

But while you’re introducing yourself, do everything you can to get listed on community boards, calendars, message boards, and social media sites to demonstrate that you’re a part of that community. You will definitely improve your ranking, but more importantly, you’ll be talking to the people who might want to buy from you.

If you catch wind of a trade show or business fair in the area, try to grab a spot. Demonstrate to your local market what you’re offering and why you stand out. But don’t forget to take videos and pictures that you can post, and talk about the experience on your blog or social media accounts.

Your community may not be very proactive about putting on these sorts of events, and that’s alright. If you don’t have any opportunities to join in, or if your offerings aren’t suited for mixed groups, you can put on your own demonstration for current and potential customers. It gives people a reason to buy from you or refer you, as well as give their impression about you on the web.

Guest Blogging

Take a look around to find blogs that speak to your community. If you’re in a B2C business, an online newspaper might be a good start. For B2B businesses, start by looking into local business networks.

Offer to write a post that they can publish, and make sure it will be something that’s useful to their readership. You might give do-it-yourself tips or information to help them hire or buy from someone like you—what insider information do they need to know? Make sure to include a link back to your site, often in the author’s profile at the end of the post.

Real-World Marketing

If you are building awareness of your brand in the real world, do it in a way that can point back to your website (which should serve as a hub for your whole marketing strategy). Use any resources that are available to you, like a local newspaper, newsletter, or business guide. Always include your website URL, but also use your social media contact information if you have the opportunity.

Submit to Localized Directories

Some sites act as a hub for local business information and views, like Manta, City Search, Yelp, Yellow Pages, and Foursquare. You can submit or claim your business profile on these sites to associate yourself with the location, and your customers and clients can leave feedback and recommendations that might lead to more business. The more positive reviews you have, the more likely you are to get new business from them.

Linking With Partners

Do you have local partners that help you do business in any way? Or maybe you’re part of a group or association of professionals? Talk to some of these other businesses about including links to each other’s site on a special ‘partner’ page. You’ll get more people seeing your brand, and it will have a definite impact on your search results.

But be careful of people who list a lot of partners. Search engines don’t take them seriously, and they may actually penalize you for being linked on their page. If a partner already has five or more partner links on their site, politely decline to list a link.

What do you do to get out into the community? How do you engage with people who will buy from you? And how do you turn that into better local search engine rankings?

We would like to see your answers by repleying to this post.
