What do you know about western culture?

Many a time, our politicians blame western culture which, according to them, is polluting  our culture. Some times we also blame western lifestyle for increasing dis-trust in our society. But before we agree or disagree with that, do we actually know anything about western world. How correctly Hollywood represents the western society. Have we ever given a thought on how they have become the wealthiest in the world. Why every new tech company comes from that part of the world? Is it sheer intelligence blended with luck or there is something which makes them the most powerful and wealthiest countries of the world?

Truth About Western Clture

Amit Chaturvedi went to Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, in USA to complete his higher studies. He has written some of his experiences and truth about American Lifestyle. The Business Insider has published his experiences on its website. We, at Digitalimpulse did a survey to find out what other international students have to say about this article. To our surprise almost 100% of our respondents said that what Amit has written is absolutely true and it has been a point of discussion for them when they visited America for the first time.

The most surprising thing about America

  • Nobody talks about grades here.
  • Everyone is highly private about their accomplishments and failures. Someone’s performance in any field is their performance alone. This is different compared to India where people flaunt their riches and share their accomplishments with everybody else.
  • The retail experience is nowhere near as fun/nice as it is in India. Because labor is cheap in India, there is always someone who will act as a “personal shopper” to assist you with holding your clothes, giving suggestions, etc. In America, on the other hand, even if you go to a Nordstrom or Bloomingdales, there is almost nobody to help you out while you’re shopping. Shopping in America is more of a commodity / chore than it is a pleasurable activity

Quick Review of LinkedIn Sponsored Update – Marketers’ Dream and CEO’s delight

Well! All LinkedIn page managers must be expecting this for few months specially after the introduction of Analytics tab on LinkedIn Company Pages. LinkedIn has formally introduced the sponsored update feature for company pages. (Unlike Facebook individuals can’t promote their status updates). We tested this feature on our own LinkedIn company page (http://www.linkedin.com/company/digitalimpulse).

Our main purpose of the campaign was to test the various features of the sponsored update. Though it is too early to make judgement but following are quick observations which can help you use LinkedIn Sponsored Update feature more effectively.

  1. LinkedIn sponsored update feature is really expensive. You need to bid a CPC of at least Rs. 136 ($2.25) of CPM of at least Rs. 205 ($3.5) to get your ad running. In this budget you can Boost your Post for whole day on Facebook.
  2. You can select the target audience in LinkedIn way. That is you can target professionals from desired region, industries, companies, functions, seniority, designation etc.
  3. Our average CPC was almost Rs. 106 ($2).
  4. The best part of LinkedIn Sposored Update is Free Social Action. It means while promoting your content users can follow your company page on LinkedIn without visiting the page or clicking the sponsored link.
  5. And the delight is all Social Actions (Follow, Comment, Like & Share) are completely free.
  6. Immediate approval of ads makes it easy to run ads quickly.
  7. Most of the clicks are valid so LinkedIn analytics match closely with Google Analytics Data. (Unlike Facebook where invalid clicks is a major challenge)
  8. Dream of Marketers/Brand Managers – to reach target audience – comes true here. Yeah, it is not an exaggeration. You will realize it when you find out that all the audiences which were engaged were your true target audience. For e.g while creating ad I selected entire professionals from India. But after completion of the campaign I found that only marketers had interacted as content was relevant only for them.
  9. Reasserting the fact that “Content is the King”
  10. Compatible with all devices i.e. desktop/laptop, mobile and tablet.

Title of the Post/Article

When any content is posted on a webpage or a blog, the content management software automatically adds the page title in the URL of the page. Since the URL is being made out of a title, it is obvious that the title should be a very good one and clearly explain the content as have optimum keywords in it.

Keywords

Keywords are the words or phrases that essentially indicate the target words of your content. These words are the ones which should definitely appear in your text and your webpage or blog title. In the website these keywords are to be defined in the “Metatag” in the head portion of the page. In the context of the blogs and community of the page, process is automated and you would need to fill a box with keywords or “labels “separated by commas.

Description

Another tag which is used in HTML to describe in short what your page is all about is known as the description task. If you are making your own website, use this tag and ensure that a summary of your page, including your keywords is defined in this tag.  The description is what you see in the search result. It needs to be ensured that not too many keywords are stuffed together in the description.

Keywords in the text

Once you have a specified keyword list for your blog and website make sure that they appear in the main text, the right number of times. There is no specific formula to define the right number and that is something you have to make work out by yourself. The number of times the keywords appear in the text defines the keyword density on the page.

Use keywords in the links

When you are inserting a link in the text, there are two ways to go about it. One is to straight away copy and paste the link URL INTO YOUR CONTENT. The other is to convert a word or few words of your text into a hyperlink. This way you can use keywords in the hyper linked text.

Links

There are two types of links in a website that affect the search engine optimization, namely; Forward Links and Back Links. Forward links are the ones you specify or link to into your website. Forward links are important because they indicate further reading on the subject or a validation of what you are saying. The more popular or relevant is your forward link, the better it is for your page.

Back Links to your page indicate that your content has been validated as good by someone else, who has taken time to link to your website.

Update Content regularly

 

Google or other search engines decide the frequency of updating your website in their search index based on the frequency of fresh content being added to the website. If you continue posting fresh content regularly there are better prospects of getting indexed faster on the search engine.

Length of the post

It is not advisable to have short posts. A good post featuring on the top of the search engine is always comprehensive and provides good content to the user.

Promote

Promote your content. This can be done by using any of the techniques such as search engine advertising and social media optimization.

Things to avoid in Search Engine Optimization

Link farming or harvesting

There are people who pay offer hundreds of rupees for backlines that can get them more traffic and references. However with smart crawling techniques as adopted by google it becomes difficult to fool a search engine for long.

Pages that have only link

Avoid having pages which have got only links and nothing much to offer.

Selecting highly specific list of keywords

In order to get great returns from your search engines, narrow down on specific topics that your website is all about. The visitors should be specifically interested in what you have on offer through your address.

It always beneficial to use search phrases with at-least 2000-5000 monthly services as less than 1 percent of search leads to clicks and anything less than that would not lead to good search traffic.

Using the keywords in the first line of your ads

Google reads the mind of the researcher through the keyword they select. Hence users are telling you what they are most interested in through their Google search habits. You should mirror back the subject of your webpage by reflecting those keywords in your digital ads.

Use the keyword again in ad-specific landing pages

For any successful ad-word of pay per click campaign must have a great landing page. Advertisers pay heavily in advertisements but link the page to a home page and then leads do-not get converted into sales. Web users are fast to look for relevant content in a page and do-not spend excess of time on a website unless they find a page to be highly relevant.

Capitalize on First letter of every word in your copy

Capitalizing relevant words in your online ad leads to improved readability and higher click through rates.

Do not always run after the #1 spot

The order in which advertisements are displayed determines how much each advertiser bids for the key-phrase. Digital advertisers run after number one position and measure the success of a page only through high ranking on search engines.

However the marketing truth remains that while ads appearing first have the highest click-through rates, they are often the last would that are converted.

Hence instead of spending your entire marketing budget on advertisements that cause higher clicks and no conversions, it is essential to have an intellectual ad word campaign.

If you’re a business house looking for bottom line growth through new leads, advertise now with DigitalImpulse Adwords Management services!

Internet in the light of Indian business

Speaking in context of India, internet has revolutionized the business class. The majority of Indian population resides in remote villages where the primary occupation or business is agriculture.

The farmers are not aware of the market price of their crops and they sale the yield at very nominal prices. Internet has created a growing desire among people in rural India to be part of the modernization process.
