What Happens When Your Emails Get Blacklisted?

enCOMPASS_blog-image_blacklisted.jpg

Email is a critical platform for marketing and outreach, something that most business owners are well aware of. You put attention and care into the marketing emails you send, and hope that each message is actually read. Of course, it doesn’t always happen that way. In fact, some emails never make it to customer inboxes at all—not because of a technical mishap, but because the sender has been blacklisted.

How to Improve Your Brand’s Facebook Reach

enCOMPASS blog image Facebook

Facebook is all about connecting—connecting individuals to their friends and family members, but also connecting brands to their consumer base. Actually, using Facebook to facilitate meaningful brand interactions has become increasingly difficult for small business owners because Facebook has made a number of changes that put small companies at a disadvantage. For one thing, recent algorithmic shifts favor personal Facebook pages over business accounts—meaning the posts from a small business page are less visible than they used to be. In addition, Facebook continues to emphasize the need for paid ads in addition to winsome content, which means that small companies looking to expand their reach often feel as though they must up their budget to do so.

Getting Started with AMP

enCOMPASS_blog-image_AMP.jpeg

If you pay any attention at all to what’s going on in the world of SEO, you’re probably familiar with accelerated mobile pages—or, as they are more commonly known, AMP. For the uninitiated, here’s a speedy synopsis: AMP is effectively a coding language that allows for websites to be designed with speed in mind, ensuring that, when the site is opened on a mobile device, it loads quickly. AMP matters because more and more search engine queries are happening on mobile devices, and users don’t want to wait for their content to load; Google, meanwhile, takes loading times into consideration when determining rankings, and AMP content is now being indexed by Google’s algorithms—meaning it’s a good way to enhance your website’s mobile SEO.

enCOMPASS_blog-image_WebsiteTrust.jpeg

The Internet can be a dangerous place, and we all know it. For as much as we take online communication for granted, we’ve all seen the reports about online scams, malware, information theft, disreputable e-commerce merchants… the list goes on and on. The point is, consumers know that they have to be careful with the websites they frequent, and especially with the websites they entrust with their credit card information. As a business owner, the onus is on you to create a site that exudes this trust, and that makes it easy for consumers to feel comfortable with your online offerings.

enCOMPASS blog image Penguin

The layman might assume that Google is a fairly static, non-changing entity—but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Actually, Google’s search engineers are constantly tweaking and revising the algorithms to provide users with a better search experience. Most of these adjustments are exceedingly minor, but some of them are significant—and one of the most significant Google search updates in recent memory is the one known as Penguin.

Why Ecommerce SEO Fails—and What to Do About It

enCOMPASS blog image SEOFails

This has always been a basic concept of retail: You’re not going to sell any products if nobody knows that your store exists. This was true in the brick and mortar era, and it’s still true today. Online stores can have perfect business models, outstanding products, incredible prices, and amazing customer service—but if the store itself is not well marketed and made highly visible, it’s simply not going to do well. It is imperative that ecommerce merchants do anything they can to make sure people are aware of their store.

New YouTube App Places You in the Director’s Chair

enCOMPASS_blog-image_youtube.jpg

While the benefits of video advertising are well-stated, many business owners remain reluctant to embrace YouTube and other video marketing opportunities. The most common objection is price. It is widely believed that effective video marketing requires professional-level film equipment, advanced video editing technology, and potentially even space at a real recording studio. None of this is the case, and in fact many business owners make successful YouTube ads using simply their iPhones and some basic editing software. For those looking to dive head-first into video marketing, the DIY method really does tend to work well.

enCOMPASS blog image CitationService3

Troubleshooting Your Content Marketing Campaign

enCOMPASS_blog-image_troubleshooting.jpg

The potential of content marketing is by now well-established. Most business owners know that an investment in regular content development and deployment can yield big dividends—increased brand awareness, a better online reputation, increased client trust and loyalty, and so on. While the potential of content marketing is very real, however, it’s by no means a guarantee. Many businesses invest in content marketing, but—often due to tactical errors or strategic lapses—don’t get those dividends.
