First of all, my website editor is extremely jumpy right now.
Yep, Weebly is now 100% mobile.
Weebly Switches to Mobile View
Weebly just made a big transition to mobile, at least that’s what it looks like from the new views. Yep, everything is more “close-up” and has that mobile-y feel to it.
I don’t use mobile and many of you know that. I’m desktop through and through – when you write thousands of words a day you have to be.
That can be frustrating. We know that back in April mobile surpassed desktop for search queries.
We also know that ads are getting 20% more views on mobile than desktop.
I guess I’ll be left behind, huh?
One post that caught my eye today was put out on Quick Sprout.
It’s called Who Wants to Become Business Partners with Neil Patel? In it he mentions a book he’s writing and some new business ventures he’s embarking upon.
That means he needs help. There’s an application for copywriters and you can email if you’re interested in helping on the book.
Pretty cool opportunity, huh?
Transitioning Away from Google+
A post that I was nodding along to earlier today was on Search Engine Journal in an edition of #MarketingNerds.
Brent Csutoras has been thinking a lot about using Pinterest more than Google+. He mentions the frustrations that Google+ users have, especially when the network removes popular things like hangouts.
All in all, it got my ass in gear. Yep, I went over to Pinterest and pinned a bunch of images from obscure Montana blog posts.
These are things like maps of fur trapping forts in the 1820s.
Yeah, pretty damn niche.
I figure people will search for that, and I know from Google’s image search that I’m already ranking well for that.
Will Pinterest help me more? I think so. Global Web Index had a great graph in May that showed Pinterest has experienced a 97% growth from 2014.
Tumblr is another I should keep my eye on – they grew by 94%. Kind of makes the transition away from Google+ a little easier, right?
Lots of content marketing sites and social media marketing sites do podcasts on Friday.
What do you think of that?
I think they do it to slack off a bit, to be completely honest. It’s kind of like – hey, no writing day!
Well, maybe not. I dunno – I just don’t listen to marketing podcasts. I did a couple times on Copyblogger when they were getting that going, but it just didn’t do it for me.
I like the written word. I can skim the hell out of that. Podcasts, eh…not so much.
So keep writing…please!
Is Online Advertising Effective
A scary post appeared on Marketing Land today. It quoted Nielson ratings as saying just 48% of people trust online ads.
Now, that was only polling 30,000 people across 60 countries so…what?
Well, I’m not that sure, but I just wanted to point this post out to you because it has some awesome graphs and charts on advertising to generations and which types of social ads are the most effective.
Not too bad, huh?
Stay up to date on things, if you can.
I find it’s a lot easier to do that if I have my bookmark bar organized and up to date.
I’ll be talking about that soon on this site, and I’ll be discussing a bit more too.
Topics like Facebook ads and shopping cart abandonment will also be discussed.
Check back often – I know you’ll get some tips.
