February 2017
A bit slow off the mark this month. Firstly a Happy Valentine's Day to everyone. May you receive all the goodies you're hoping for!

One nice thing to receive, though not specifically for Valentine's Day, is more social media attention. There's a great site called  Buzzsumo that is an industry leader in this area. I pop over from time to time to read their research and grab ideas. Some recent research from them has shown that the typical social media post can receive a 2.3 times engagement boost JUST by adding an image. With so much content out there, this simple trick could mean the difference between any engagement or getting lost in the dust of the posting stampede.

 

LinkedIn is a very under-utilized tool for businesses. Worked properly, you can receive great attention from others in the community and, despite the naysayers, business as well. I can vouch for that, after starting to put more effort into the platform thanks to my friend Amanda Collins of Grammar Doctors.

And continuing with the Sumobuzz theme for this month, they have a good article about using LinkedIn too. In it they discuss successful headlines and topics.

Love 'em or hate em', even most 5 YOs have one, and so do all your customers and potential customers. With 90% of all buying decisions starting with an online search, and 60% of them occurring on a mobile device, being mobile friendly is a big deal. CitrusKiwi has been building their sites using mobile-friendly architecture for years. 

In a recent Moz article, they identify Google moving further and further this way as a trend for 2017. With this push to mobile, local search is now even more critical to get right. That's Google My Business among others.

Lastly, something inspirational from baseball legend, Babe Ruth. He said, "Every strike brings me closer to the next home run." Don't give up just because you had a swing and a miss, or a foul strike. You never know whether or not the next one will be the home run that wins the series!
