  • Direct Meets Digital: How Direct Marketing Has Evolved With Technology

    Direct Meets Digital: How Direct Marketing Has Evolved With Technology

    Direct marketing has gone through a number of transformations over the years.

    And while certain aspects have changed, strategically driven direct marketing is still as viable as ever in helping businesses attract today’s discriminating customers and meet their high demands.

As a result, marketers can focus less on appealing to the masses and more on modeling and optimizing advertising to target individual prospects and customers. Here’s a look at some of the ways that direct marketing has evolved with technology.

  • Proper Data Insights Need Tools and Talent

    Proper Data Insights Need Tools and Talent

    Contrary to popular belief, the big data process isn’t a funnel. For whatever reason, we’ve come to think the more information we dump in from the top, the more actionable, quality insights will come out through the bottom. That just isn’t the case. We’re creating more data every day than any other point in history, but not all of this information is a golden opportunity. Most of it’s just noise. The real key to success is being able to navigate through the clutter and determine what pieces of information are pertinent.

  • The Best Blogging Services Infographic

    The Best Blogging Services Infographic

    While actually setting up a blog is easy, the process of starting one requires a few decisions that will impact the success of your online venture. For instance, what will be your niche? If you want to make money blogging, how will you monetize your blog? Should you use a free blogging platform or choose to self-host your site?

    Although a self-hosted blog built on WordPress.org’s software will offer you maximum flexibility, control, and monetization opportunity, not every blogger is looking to turn their blog into a business and make money online. For hobbyists, a free blog from WordPress.com, Blogger, Tumblr, Wix, Weebly, or even SquareSpace can still provide the basic benefits of blogging.

    Gary Dek of StartABlog123.com has put together a useful comparison chart where he compares the best blog sites. Check below the fold to see which free blogging platform fits your needs.

  • It's all about WordPress 4.2 and 4.2.1

    It's all about WordPress 4.2 and 4.2.1

    Last week, when WordPress announced that Version 4.2 was available, I planned to take my time upgrading my site. Then word came that WordPress 4.2.1 was made available. Sure enough, WordPress has provided a critical security release for all previous versions of their CMS and the developers were strongly encouraging WordPress users to update their sites immediately. Apparently, the WordPress team were made aware of a cross-site scripting vulnerability which could enable commenters to compromise a site. 

    The good news is that updating your WordPress site to 4.2.1 also gets you all the brand new features found in the just just-released WordPress 4.2. WordPress is branding this major version upgrade as the one to help you communicate and share, globally.
