No doubt you’ll already have heard about the latest, and some would say biggest, scandal to hit social media company Facebook. In an exposé made by the Guardian newspaper it was revealed that the data of around 85 million of its users was acquired unethically by analytics company Cambridge Analytica. Worse than that, it would seem that the company then used this data to skew the opinions of voters in the run up to the US Presidential...

Knowing your return on investment (ROI) is crucial if you’re going to spend your marketing budget wisely. Although ROI is well known to be a key performance indicator (for everything, not just online marketing), 76 per cent of marketers are still either not measuring the ROI of their AdWords campaigns, or are not doing it properly. The result? Thousands of chief executives who still don’t know whether all the money they are pouring into AdWords really...

The online world is a fiercely competitive place to do business, but it can be a profitable one too. Here in the UK, ecommerce is worth around 533 billion pounds a year, and accounts for around 17 per cent of all retail sales. It’s the only industry which has seen sustained growth in double digits, growing at around 11 per cent in the UK, and seven times faster than the global retail average. In order to harness...

For both big brands and small businesses, Facebook is an advertising goldmine. With access to all of the 2.2 billion users currently active on the platform, there are few marketing tools that can pack a punch quite as impressive as this social network. Last year, for the first time, the number of Facebook advertisers passed the five million mark, proving just how widespread this marketing stream has become. This growth has been exponential, ramping up around 50...

Google is a multibillion dollar company with products and services offered in a wide range of industries from advertising, marketing and search engines, to hardware, software, internet, even a $38 million wind farm in North Dakota, USA. With everything that Google has ties to, it is interesting to find that almost 97 percent of Google’s annual revenue comes from their advertising platform. That is over $30 billion per year. This goes to show that keywords are...

Google AdWords is a sure way to get your business noticed and to develop it into a successful leader in your market. Your business’ ad will be listed in one of the world’s leading search engines and on popular, relevant web pages where it will be seen by millions of people every day. This is an easy way to increase sales and build your brand. Many small business owners still don’t know what Google AdWords is or...

Google AdWords has proved itself repeatedly as an effective marketing tool for small to medium business startups looking for growth and brand recognition. Some marketing professionals choose to use AdWords exclusively for their clients while others like to add other marketing methods to increase sales. Which is best for you and is there a comparable marketing method that you should be using alongside your AdWords campaign? What is AdWords? First, let’s take a look at what AdWords...

The goal of your business website is to attract more customers and increase sales. Sure, it does a lot more than that, but its primary goal is more customers and more sales. Keeping that idea in mind, the business owner has to ask himself or herself the question, “Does my website really do what it needs to make my business successful?” After many business owners ask themselves this question, they usually turn to a web development agency...

A recent report focusing on market shares of some of the industry’s leading search engines, listed Google’s UK market share highest with an astonishing 88.09% of all queries. Is that number shocking? No, but it is much higher than expected and well beyond Bing’s 7.25% and Yahoo’s 3.48%. Why does Google hold such a strong lead and what has happened to Bing and Yahoo to make their numbers so dismal? The answer is features, effectiveness and...
