Google is hungry for SEO and it wants you to EAT

It looks like Google are taking the phrase ‘you are what you eat’ quite literally in their latest SEO update.

I hope you’re hungry, because in today’s article we’ve got some fresh EAT information for you to chew on. We’ll touch briefly on the new Google SEO ranking guidelines and how you can amend your […]

Under the influence: using customers to collect customers

No matter how fantastic your product or service might be, getting the attention of your target audience can be a tremulous task – especially for small kiwi businesses. In a world where we tend to roll our eyes at obvious advertisements, it can be hard to target the trustworthy marketing zone wherein a potential customer can feel comfortable and eventually keen to try your product. Times are changing. Just as the internet morphed into the user-bolstered 2.0, companies are looking to the customers themselves for brand-boosting opportunities. With a little social media smarts… you might just see your customers magically […]

Three reasons why a rebrand is going to be the best bet for your business

Do I really need a new logo? Is it worth it? The old one has worked fine for us these past few decades…why should I bother rebranding? You wouldn’t show up to work in a garish pastel pantsuit, so why should your logo stay stuck in the 80’s-90’s? Even a few early 2000 logos are lacking that modern, timeless factor that many 2010-7 logos are strongly sporting these days. A relevant rebrand is every bit as important as updated technology for your business, so what’s stopping you from investing in that redesign? If it’s going to take a little persuasion […]

How to handle hate: keeping your profile professional

The ‘single star review’ is never a welcome notification for small businesses currently utilising social media for marketing. The lonely 1 star out of 5 will generally be followed by a client’s (often expletive-laced) narrative regarding an unsatisfactory experience they’ve had with your business. Sometimes the single star won’t be accompanied by any comments at all, and the ‘reviewer’ will just be seeking to bring down your overall rating – an issue we’ve faced ourselves at Tailgunner. Then there’s blatant negativity. A comment will come out of nowhere on one of your posts – cold and uncalled for. How are […]

The benefits of video for business: websites

  Soaring sales and increased conversions If you’ve got products to sell then video marketing is your new best friend. Studies show that by merely featuring a product video on your site’s landing page, you can increase conversions by more than 80%! Why? Well, sight is the most dominant of our senses so it therefore makes sense that videos would captivate and influence us more than a paragraph of text or a catchy theme song. If pictures tell a thousand words then continuous moving pictures will be able to simultaneously stimulate and inform your potential customers in a matter of […]

Continued: Choosing the right social network (Pinterest and Instagram)

  Instagram This crisp, clean, visually-focussed social network is perfect for clients with eye-catching imagery to share. Instagram sells the concept of an experience, which is why brands often employ popular Instagrammers to share images of themselves using the product: faithful audience members – in an effort to mimic the Instagrammer’s lifestyle – will shop for the same products that they see featured in the photos. While Facebook draws attention to and offers information about your brand, Instagram aims to do this visually by instilling a desire within your audience to acquire the items or places promoted in your eye-catching […]
