What Is The Difference Between Marketing Strategies and Marketing Plans?

Many people work hard on their marketing strategies. They try out every trick and advice they can find — have a blog, optimize for SEO, produce good content, produce videos, engage on social media, analyze, track, optimize for mobile and so on. And yet, the results are just not that favorable. The effort is there, all of the components are there and there is no increase in conversions or anything, really.

Well, the trick is not in what they are doing but rather in why they are doing it.

5 Tips On How To Omit Content Pollution on Your Blog

Do you remember the last blog post you’ve read? What was the content there like? Was it informative or dull, compelling or boring, clearly structured or chaotically arranged?

If it was engaging or jaw-dropping, that’s the right content. You probably followed it smoothly, naturally, without any effort. But if it was just a cluttered mix of words that didn’t make any sense and left you thinking “What have I just read?” — that’s content pollution, which is bad.

The matter is that blogging is so much more than writing posts in social media. It’s that creative medium that provides readers with both the information and a pinch of entertainment they want to digest. And generating effective blog content means nourishing the audience with compelling and original texts they find truly engaging to follow.

If you are wondering how to write a blog post that hooks and is devoid of content pollution, keep reading this article and learn five tips to make the most of your text entries.

The Difference Between Hiring a Writer and Hiring a Content Strategist

I was talking to a potential new client the other day, and he told me they had tons of writers. So why was he looking to hire Egg?

“We don’t have anyone who really gets our client. That’s what we need you for.”

His writers, it seemed, did their jobs. They wrote what they were assigned. But what the company needed was to hire a content strategist. You see, writers are a dime a dozen (and I truly hate to be able to say that), but professionals who can go one step further are rare. I agree: hiring a content strategist is the way to go.

Chatbots

The Importance of Chatbots In Social Media Marketing

We all know that Chatbots are an Artificial Intelligence progam, which are designed to stimulate conversation with users. Internet websites are flourished with Chatbot technology, and the users are getting the experience of natural conversation via robotic technology. For this reason, Chatbots have been described as one of the most important and advanced ways of interaction between the service and the users. The Internet has converted this world into a web village, and the need for quick conversations is a must in order to know more about the services a company offers.

There are a large number of users active online, and answering their queries is a very tedious task. Human staff and executives cannot be present all the time to answer the queries. And here’s where the term ‘Chatbots’ has its importance and necessity. Though the idea of chatbots, where robotic technology takes the place of natural talk is intimidating, it’s a fact that the robots have made our life easier, and even more comfortable than it used to be. This conversation stimulating technology has eased the burden of millions of Internet services to present a classy conversation with their users. Using a chatbot, you can talk through messaging applications, websites, mobile apps and even using the telephone.
