Nobody runs for VP. They support the ticket in elections and run interference when in office. Donald Trump should change that paradigm. He would be the perfect counterpart for most of the GOP candidates.
Outsourcing is never an easy option to consider, no matter what the circumstances. Essentially, outsourcing means we are handing over the reins to something we consider deeply personal. Add in the mix of emotions surrounding personal business ventures, and outsourcing becomes a whole new ballgame. When it comes to social media and deciding whether or not to allow someone else to handle our efforts, we hope we’re making a safe investment. However, what if you’re not getting your money’s worth? When is it time to get a second opinion?
Yes, the question requires clarification. We’ll get to that. First, let’s quickly go over the news itself for those who don’t know. Ellen Pao is out as interim CEO and the original CEO Steve Huffman is back in the top spot at Reddit. This comes after a tumultuous couple of months that culminated in a revolt. No need to rehash details. If you’re a Reddit user you already know and if you’re not a Reddit user you probably wouldn’t understand.
If you’re one who checks Google Analytics often to see how your traffic is doing, you’ve problem seen a lot of sites popping up in analytics over the last year or so that don’t make sense. It would seem like these you’re getting traffic from strange sites, particularly those selling SEO or other marketing services.
2015 will be remembered for many things, perhaps the biggest thing in the automotive world is that it was the year that luxury cars truly took on a new appearance. For a long time, the standard in luxury cars went to a handful of different manufacturers, but recent years have opened the doors for a couple of newbies to claw their way onto the scene. Kia, with great confidence and some genuine swagger, was one of those newbies.
How many of you hear over and over again “Do you have a blog” about your company? Before I go any further, because this can get deep, do you know what blogging is? I don’t want to leave you in the dark with this subject. Blogging is an interactive form of publishing your content on the web. It has become a dominant way of self-publish the past several years.
As a policy, we’ve always chosen to obey the “once and nevermore” philosophy with our social media posts for clients. We handcraft each post and that post will appear one time and on one dealership’s Facebook page. Once it’s used, it’s done forever.
To those of us who have been in the industry for long enough and have enough clients through which to see results, we’ve known all along that inbound links are still an important component of the Google search algorithm. News about the death of links have been proven once again to be greatly exaggerated.
At some point in the last couple of years, someone started spreading a “best practice” that it’s good for websites to automatically play videos once people click through to them. This is not a best practice. It’s annoying at best. At worst, it can prevent people from visiting your website ever again. One of those people is now, officially, me.
Let’s put the TL:DR version at the top for the sake of expediency. A portion of the liberal mindset is the reason that Reddit is in the process of failing. It’s not political liberalism – that’s something that has helped Reddit maintain its pull over the internet and the real world. It’s not its cultural liberalism – diversity and openness have contributed to the appeal of the site. The liberal mindset that is killing Reddit is the concept of emotional socialism. Reddit management, a small but outspoken portion of its users, and scorned members of the media tried to tear down the pseudo-freedom that the community enjoyed in the name of anti-harassment.
