  • The Marketing Department of the Future 25 February 2015
    My latest essay is now on Moz: After leaving the porn website, I held various positions at global agencies before working now as a digital marketing and communications consultant. Today, based on the problems that I have seen and the fallacies that I have encountered, I wanted to propose a strategy to Mozzers on how marketing […]
  • How to Approach Owned and Earned Media 9 January 2015
    My newest essay is up on Moz! We all know content is king, but if your content marketing plan consists of blindly publishing daily blog posts on your website or submitting countless bylined articles (i.e., guest posts) to random outlets, your king will turn into the court jester. Marketing must have a sound strategy behind it to be […]
  • Online Marketing is No Longer a Bag of Tricks 5 January 2015
    Google was founded close to the height of the 1990s tech bubble. (See above.) By the time that the search engine became the top method to find things on the Internet, the United States was in a recession. Despite the Dow  Jones Industrial Average (DJIA)‘s rebound starting in 2003, the economy as a whole did […]
  • How SEO Will Not Change in 2015 26 December 2014
    What is the difference between doing “SEO” and doing “marketing”? The answer lies partly in Moz cofounder Rand Fishkin’s recent webinar on Cracking the SEO Code for 2015 (see the full presentation) in which he addresses the following issues (and more): Website speed Quality content that is designed for human beings Domain-level metrics and brand-building Here, I wanted […]
  • Is There Fraud in the Online Advertising Industry? 21 December 2014
    Bob Hoffman has called it “fraud” perpetrated by “criminals.” The retired founder, chairman, and CEO of Hoffman/Lewis Advertising — who now writes the Ad Contrarian blog and speaks at advertising conferences — had been referring to ongoing revelations in the digital advertising industry that a lot, if not most, of online advertising is a waste of money. […]
  • The Death of Linkbuilding for SEO 18 December 2014
    Over the past two years, SEOMoz became Moz, ThunderSEO became ThunderActive, and seOverflow became Inflow. Although I do not work for these companies, I would argue that they — and likely many more — have been rebranding themselves by removing affiliations to “SEO” and instead associating themselves with good, old-fashioned “marketing.” The reason? The phrase “SEO” has become […]
  • How to Pitch Reporters in Various Industries 17 December 2014
    In the end, journalists are just another audience in a company’s overall marketing strategy — and they should be treated as such in publicity and public relations plans. A month ago, I wrote an essay for Moz on the coming integration of SEO and public relations. The post included a lengthy infographic flowchart and a […]
  • How to Get More Good Twitter Followers 15 December 2014
    Having a large Twitter following brings many benefits — more fans who will retweet your posts, higher Klout scores, better branding, more media attention are just a few of them. So, many CEOs have been telling their Vice Presidents of Marketing or marketing agencies, “Get us 100,000 Twitter followers tomorrow!” I exaggerate only a little. If […]
  • The Future of SEO in 2015 14 December 2014
    Build, promote, and publicize a website that delights its target audience. Everything else will fall into place. This is the secret to good search-engine optimization for 2015 – but, frankly, it should always have been the best practice in the first place. Google is beholden to Internet users.
