Artificial Intelligence and Android Apps

How is AI paving their ways in Android app development?

Apps were smart but they are getting smarter with the addition of newer technologies like AI, AR, VR, and ML. With the enterprise and business facing crucial competition, they are striving to add every possible innovative addition that provides them a competitive edge and something extraordinary than the usual Android apps. Looks like AI has some significant impact on the business and enterprise apps. According to the reports of Statista AI is expected to cross $17 Billion by the end of 2020. I bet you want to be a part of this booming industry.

The best way is to start incorporating it in the Android apps. It will take your apps to whole another level. Here is how.

  1. Face Detection

This is a cool feature which accompanies with added security. There was a time when such features were just in high-security places. But, now it can be integrated into your Android apps as well. Face detection is all about identifying the user’s face in digital images. This technology is already in existence, you just need to integrate it into your Android app and make it cool, innovative, and highly secure. Also, the market is at the inception stage of accepting and implementing it which can give your app a competitive advantage.

  1. Landmark Detection

It’s a very unique AI feature you can integrate it into your Android app. It helps to locate particular points in the 2D image. With such feature, real estate apps would be highly benefited. If you are having trouble getting required users to your real estate app, AI can be the solution to your problem. It is basically the core part of the complex research process. It is part of the improved security process for payment transactions. With this feature, the payment will be safer for users. People can lay trust easily.

  1. Smart Reply

We have seen what this feature has done to Gmail. People just loved the smart reply feature.

It’s just great how they combined AI and ML technologies to avail highly personalized experience. By integrating smart reply feature, the user can save a lot of time during a conversation.

Effectiveness of AI

The user needs to type a word and there will be a suggestion about the next word or to complete an entire sentence. This will be a great addition for the business Android application. Well, the Android app development company might charge a bit extra but the investment is worth the return. Not every Android app has this feature which will surge the demand of your app, number of visitors, and hence increasing the engagement as well.

  1. Personalized Experience

Creating a customer base might be a bit easy but, maintaining them is tricky. There are always new things entering the market and the chances of user shifting to other apps are high. If you provide the users with a personalized experience, they are bound to stick with your app. Artificial intelligence offers predictive analysis according to the user’s likes and behavior and also show recommendation based on it. This way the user will find things that they like and won’t have scroll the entire app for that. Apps like Facebook, Netflix, Amazon Prime, have already adapted AI in their app and users love it.

  1. Text Recognition

It takes two processes to integrate this feature into the Android app. The first is detecting texts from media files in video and image formats. The second is getting the detected text. The feature basically breaks the text into different segments to detect the text. This feature has a lot of potential for modern businesses. At present, there are several word-based Android game apps that make use of this feature to provide gamers with the task relating to words.

  1. Image Labeling

Android developers can make use of this AI feature in varied ways. An image labeler app can allow the developers to give an interactive label to the image. Classifying an image would be a lot easier along with giving a label to rectangular ROI and pixel semantic segmentation with the technology. The user will feel more attached to the images and objects of the android app with image labeling.

  1. Chatbots

Considered as one of the most revolutionary innovation in the Android app development field; chatbots are great when it comes to communicating with the audience, collecting information and data, and availing the users with the enhanced services. Healthcare, insurance, and eCommerce are the industries that are going to benefit the most if they integrate chatbots into their apps.

Android App Ideas
Android App Ideas

Also, it’s a cost saver. You will be relieved from hiring a customer executive to answer the users 24/7. Chatbots will give a human-like experience.

Conclusion

Well, AI has already paved its way into the Android app. I suppose it’s high time if you are considering hiring an Android app development company to deploy your app, choose the one having the abilities to integrate AI. I suggest you don’t wait till the time when every single app has this functionality and your extra cost doesn’t even pay you off. It’s just to sustain the market. At this stage, the innovation can give you a higher return.

Snov.io – email outreach and automation tool for business

Hello Guys!

Today we are introducing the Snov.io platform to let you know how revolutionary the software for businesses is. Snov.io is an email automation tool helping businesses revolutionize and automate email marketing.

As everything in the world is evolving, the Snov.io team thought why not evolve email marketing and take it to the next level by leveraging automation technology. This is why they’ve developed an email outreach and automation tool for business, drip campaigns, to revolutionize email marketing.

Today, you will learn what drip campaigns are and how they work to improve our businesses. Here we go!

What is a drip campaign?

Drip campaigns are automated email sequences delivered to the users, subscribers, and clients according to the pre-defined schedule depending on their interaction with the received email. Little tweaks and changes need to be done by your side; the email sending and tracking are managed automatically by the tool.

Snovio Email Drip Campaign Setup Dashboard

Once the campaign is set, the tool automatically sends emails according to the schedule, triggers, and set delays. There are many benefits an email drip campaign can offer you.

Would you like to know more about these benefits? Easy!

Benefits of Snov.io Email Drip Campaigns

There are many benefits an email drip campaign can bring you. Mainly, there are 4 major benefits you’ll face; let us discuss them.

1.     Scheduling

Scheduling is the best feature of the tool as it lets you send emails to your customers’ list at the time and days specified by you. The schedule is the best option to set the email deliveries at a particular time and days according to your needs. Let Snov.io send emails at the time and days specified by you in the campaign.

Scheduling - Snov.io
Scheduling – Snov.io

2.     Timing

There is a perfect time to do any task and the same thing is done in email drip campaigns as well. In drip campaigns, every email is sent at a perfect time to increase the chances of its readability and conversion. More readability means more conversion that skyrocket your business, and triggers are here to track the actions of your prospects over the emails.

3.     Personalization

One of the most significant things is personalization. Adding some personal value makes every recipient feels special. Instead of sending bulk emails, send very few triggered drip emails with a personalized approach and make every person feel special as if they are receiving a personal treatment.

The best way to personalize an email is by adding the recipient’s name, company name, event, or any other special details that make a recipient feels unique.

4.     Automation

Automation is the last but the best feature the tool has. All in all, it is represented by the above-mentioned scheduling, delays, and triggers. You can automate the process of sending emails according to the necessary days and time. Let Snov.io analyze how your subscribers and clients interact with received emails and send follow-ups depending on this information.

Experience the next generation of email marketing

It’s natural that people get offended by receiving a lot of unwanted emails to their mailbox. Especially when they realize they are a part of bulk recipients. And what happens next? They just delete all the emails sent by the sender and simply block the sender.

Snovio
Snovio

So the time of doing bulk email marketing is gone as it is an old school approach already. However, we do not say that this is not beneficial, but not that much as it used to be in the past.

Now, you have a new way of sending triggered, targeted, and improved emails to your recipients by sending those emails through drip emails. Instead of sending emails in bulk, send them a sequence of emails with a customized, relevant, and targeted approach at the best time to read.

Final Words

We’ve been using the tool for 8-10 days and have already seen its potential of getting converted leads through email marketing. We would like to advise you to give it a try and we are sure you will love it.

As a digital marketing and tech blog, we are capable enough to capture a great number of email-based subscribers by the tool. Nobody wants to receive bulk emails as people don’t have enough time to waste reading unnecessary emails. It’s better to make them feel special and send them a few emails but best emails with the most relevant information.

5 Steps to build more Creative and Effective Social Media Campaigns (Guest Blog)

Are you experiencing a creative drought? Or are you reprimanding your social media campaign with creative ideas, but some of these ideas get stuck in approval? You can come here in some ways with a more creative campaign to achieve your business objectives today, even if you are in the campaign planning process.

Running a social media campaign can be much different than running a managed social media profile.

Unlike your ongoing social media marketing campaigns, campaigns are for specific purposes and are only for a specific duration. This plan you take to run a social media campaign can be different from your usual social media marketing strategy and digital marketing strategy.

Talking to customers

Depending on your business, it goes on a call or takes a survey form. However, you are using this feedback, know that how people give money to you can do it not only for your product but also to understand that your industry is large enough to think and experience.

If you are not in such a situation, you can speak directly with your customers, try and schedule your customer success with some time. These are people who are constantly conversing with your audience and can tell you what pain points they are trying to solve. Then you can create custom social media campaigns on those specific challenges.

Do not forget the best practices SEO

All social media platforms have their own search engines and many of them can be indexed by Google, Bing and other third-party search engines, making SEO an important component of any campaign or competition.

Before launching your campaign, compile a list of targeted keywords, as well as any relevant hashtags you want to socialize. Once your list has been created, conduct basic query searches to find out what types of content are being discovered or what kind of content is coming in. The principle insights can help you refine your keyword list, ensure relevance, and potentially get a glimpse of the competition.

Collaborate with content

Do your social and content teams work together or do you rarely run on parallel tracks that are intersecting? If the latter is true, then you are losing.

When your content team is reporting socially (or not) well, they can create good content for your social team. When fits within the framework of brand messaging, product offerings, and large marketing enterprises, your social team can be more strategic about how content is posted when ads are continually updated about what content needs advertising. This intersection can really be a magic.

Run a Competitive Analysis

Regular competitive analysis helps you build a benchmark for your own brand. For example:

  • What is the average daily engagement for the brand you are looking at as your competition?
  • How often is their hashtag (#) used on a weekly basis?
  • What is a successful campaign for your primary competitor in terms of investment, follower growth, and the depth of connections (e.g., straightforward comments against comments and conversations)?

Keep in mind that benchmarking brands against you are not required to be competitive in banks or in your industry as well as for the dollar: they are trying to encourage specific brand voice or visual association with your target audience.

Social Media Optimization
Social Media Optimization

Search for your social media audience

About 79% of adults use Facebook-but are your customers actively engaged with the brand there? It’s important for your audience to understand things like who buys your audience, which age group is most difficult to sell, and what is the highest level of revenue for your returning customers? For social media, getting to know your audience is equally serious.

First, your brand must view the demographics of your most valuable social channel. As we have mentioned before, you should take note of your social media marketing policies. That’s why you need to find the most relevant channels with your goals.

Engage with your audience and do not ignore

Social media channels are created in the form of networks. This means that their main objective is to have a place to talk, discuss topics, and share content. Your brand cannot forget these basic elements of “networking” and efforts are not made to ensure the chances of conversations or engagement.

Through social media, you get respect in the form of a brand by being present and talking to your audience. This is the reason why social customer care is very important for brands wishing to raise awareness of the audience. It’s all about engagement.

Learn from innovative CMOs and marketers

It is necessary to think and think about doing research on marketing executives (including myself!). Read interviews with CMOs from best-class brands, and focus on wide-ranging initiatives in your company. The strategies and messages set at a higher level always have a marching effect on departmental orders-if not now, then the next quarter. Understand bold, innovative approaches, and you will be able to come up with and perform creative campaigns that meet your business goals in your organization.

Spend time listening

Hearing your friends comes naturally. You want to hear what they have to say, and it is easy: they are sitting on the table with you on brunch, or you are writing back and forth in the storm. Since you are involved in this uninterrupted exchange of information, and listening carefully, you know about as many friends as you know about yourself. There is no truth about your relationship with your social audiences.

With our social audiences, we push information (proprietary material) and measure the effect of that content. Sometimes we forget to begin by listening to our audience and actually creating content about their care. We push content that is not perfect. It seems that this is telling your friend about a golden retriever puppy, whom he wants to adopt and wants to ask for your advice, and you are answering by listing your favorite properties of Labradoodles – Is not right. We, marketers, become terrible in this trap. Here’s how you can change your thinking.

Make your sympathy

Sympathy is created when you pay attention and listen deeply. It comes naturally in friendship: If your friend is hurting, you are hurting. When you share the painful news of your friend’s divorce, you will not scroll through your Instagram feed, right? The same concept can be applied to your relationship with your customers and/or social audiences. Do not engage yourself so much with your proprietary content (what your brand is saying) that you miss your audience’s view and feel at social, forums and blogs.

Bonford

What is Bonford and why are people talking about it? (Guest Post)

In the business world, once in a while, something big happens that makes heads turn. In certain industries such occasions are rare. One such tectonic shift has been initiated by a fairly new company called Bonford. Never have I ever seen such class and sophistication in men’s fashion industry and that too at such affordable rates. I think they’ve really made an achievement here.

What is Bonford?

To put it in simple words, they are luxury leather Shoe Company. Even after being fairly new they’ve been competing head-to-head with the companies already dominating the market. They’ve gained my admiration and the markets’ respect in the short time they’ve been running.

Now I’ll answer the question going through your mind, what’s so good about them? What’s the entire hullabaloo about? And the most important of all should you invest in them?

Take a deep breath and bear with me. I’ll answer every question as we move along.

Who are they? As I said, they’re a new company manufacturing and selling men’s leather shoes. With the motto “go big or go home” they’ve hit big in the Indian shoe market.

What makes them so great? If I’m writing about it them, then there are a lot of things that put them on a pedestal.

Real leather a.k.a top grain leather

There are different kinds of leather available in the market and chances are you’ve been getting the short end of the deal with cheap or faux leather in the name of “genuine” leather. Genuine actually means the leftover part of leather, the one that nobody wants. They combine those leftovers and call it genuine leather. Don’t get me wrong, the source is good; the quality, on the other hand, is not.

Bonford Luxury Leather Shoes

Bonford constructs their shoes with a single piece of top grain leather. According to the leather chemist.org, top grain is, “The first cut taken from the grain side of a split hide from which nothing except the hair and associated epidermis has been removed”. Basically, it’s the most expensive kind.

Blake construction

A result of an industrial revolution, Blake stitching is when the upper part of the shoe is wrapped around the insole and stitched to the outsole with a single stitch. I made it complicated, didn’t I?

Bonford Luxury Shoes

Simply put, Blake stitch is a single stitch that gives a clean look to the shoe. After a long wear, you can resole it easily. Oh and this makes the shoes extremely flexible.

Handcrafted and painted

The top grain leather is stitched to the cast by exceptionally experienced hands giving them a visible clean look. The coloring is also done by hand.

According to their website, the painting process is quite long with several steps of coloring treatment giving the shoes a smooth marble effect. The edges are also coated with hot wax to waterproof and seal the leather.

Price

The price, I feel has been carefully set keeping the Indian market in mind. We Indians, we wish for the best quality to be as affordable as possible.

Bonford has just done that. As compared to other competing brands, Bonford has managed to sell all that and more at a very reasonable price. I mean where else can you find such craftsmanship and quality at such a good price point.

To answer the final question

Should you buy a Bonford shoe? Isn’t it obvious already? A good leather shoe isn’t an investment you should hesitate to make.

All in all, I believe they’re giving a tough competition to global brands like Tresmode and Louis Philippe. They understand their customer’s needs and have exceptionally tried to help the common man in upgrading his shoe style.

Let us try to figure this out so that we can get a complete picture of the second-hand car market in India.

If you want to buy a super luxury car, then you have to look at the following aspects to get the best bang for your money.

Buying a used luxury car guide

1. Reliability of the car that you wish to buy: The first thing that you must look for when you buy a second-hand car is its reliability. Just because a car costs several lakhs of rupees does not make it a reliable car. You must look at the past performance of the model that you wish to buy in the Indian road condition to figure out how reliable car is and how good is the service of the company if something goes wrong with that car. You should try to find out whether the spare parts of that model are widely available in India and find out whether there are enough service centers in your city where you can repair the car that you wish to buy if it breaks down.

2. The resale value of the car: When you are trying to buy a super-premium car, then you should also keep the resale value of the car in the back of your mind. Nowadays, people do not keep their cars for several years, but they generally sell after three or four years of driving and then buy another car. This ensures that they always ride those cars that are technologically the best the market has to offer. However, when they like to buy a second car, then it would be advantageous for them if they were able to sell their old car for a good price. This is possible only if the car they have purchased is of a well-known global brand, which is known for its quality. Anyone who will buy the second-hand car from them will also look at the reliability should carefully. Therefore, try to find those luxury cars in India that sell at a premium in the second-hand car market of India and choose one of them.

3. Availability of the spare parts: The issue of spare parts is one of the most important factors that you must take into account when you are looking for a premium car in the second-hand car market. The more you ride your car; it is inevitable that there will be wear and tear in your car for which you need to fix by replacing some parts. There are many exotic car brands in India, which produces amazing looking models, but due to a shortage of spare parts is cars are very hard to sell. There are certain brands like Audi, Mercedes, BMW, Porsche and a few more that have an extensive sales network in most cities in India. Therefore, if you buy a model of any of these brands, you will find it easier to get their spare parts compared to other brands, which are not so widely available in Indian market.

4. Maintenance cost of the car: If you want to buy a luxury car, then you need to take into account the maintenance cost of that car. You have to understand that the older the car is, the more money you have to spend on its maintenance. In addition, the price of spare parts and servicing of such cars are very high, it may drain your finances in the long-term. Always try to find those second-hand luxury cars in India, which are only three or four years on the road. The newer the car is, the less money you will have to spend on its maintenance.

5. Figure out your requirements: when you plan to buy a luxury car, you must figure out for what purpose you are trying to buy it. If you want to buy it for your family, then you need to look at the space issue carefully. Many well-known brands sell premium models that cost lakhs of rupees, but not provide good cabin space. Therefore, first figure out your needs and then look at those models that will fulfill those needs.

6. Insurance for the car: You need to understand that if you buy premium cars, then you have to pay a large amount for the insurance of the car. Therefore, when you buy a second-hand premium car, make sure you look at all the benefits and cost to make an informed judgment whether you to require that car or not.

Once you have made up your mind to buy a second-hand premium car and have selected the model, then you need to look at the following things in that model to conclude an advantageous deal for yourself.

7. Look at how much kilometer it has run: Make sure that the car you wish to buy was not used extensively. The less it was used the less wear and tear, you will find in the car.

8. What is the service record of the car: You should always look at the service record to find out how many times it was repaired to understand the condition of the car. If the service record shows that the car was repaired multiple times, then it proves that the car was used roughly. It is always prudent to avoid buying such cars.

9. Find out the manufacturing date: Always look at the manufacturing date of the car that you wish to buy. The older the car is, the harder it is to find it, spare parts.

These are some of the points that you will find in buying a used luxury car guide that you should consider when you are in the second-hand market looking for a luxury car.

Top 10 SEO Insights by John Mueller from Google

Top 10 Insights on SEO from Google’s John Mueller (Guest Post)

The insights on all things SEO are invaluable, especially when it comes from John Mueller. Recently, the Senior Webmaster Trends Analyst at Google answered some pressing questions on the use of nofollow links, dangers of duplicate content, and more. Most of his answers got featured on Reddit’s “Ask Me Anything” session. Here are 10 things an SEO can learn from his comments, including excerpts of the answers he gave to the users on Reddit.

Insight #1:  On Hiding Design Features on Websites’ Responsive Version

The essence of the question is simply this: would hiding some design features for enhancing user experience (UX) have a negative impact on rankings, now that websites are gravitating towards mobile-first indexing.

From Mueller’s answer, it can be inferred that although some design features have to be compromised on mobile-optimized version of web pages, important UX elements have to be fully loaded on the page just as users open it. He substantiated that Google understands why certain layout features would have to be hidden, but still, it is important to promote user interaction for better conversion rates.

Insight #2:  On Whether Google Plans to Ignore the Nofollow Directive

Nofollow directive is a value added in Meta tags for a webpage’s HTML source code, to suggest Google not to follow external links within the site. This has been used by several websites.

Does Google Ignores Nofollow Links?
Does Google Ignores Nofollow Links?

Mueller said that Google has no plans to ignore nofollow all of a sudden since it does not cause any issues but find it as useful to the search engine. Although, he did point out that there is a tendency for things to evolve in due course. So, one cannot rule out an algorithm update that may invite changes in future.

Insight #3:  Do Websites with Better Organic Click Through Rates Rank Higher?

This refers to the number of clicks, which a site appearing on SERP receives divided by impressions. Those in the SEO profession seems to think that organic CTR contributes to search rankings, but the Google executive says that it perhaps is not as influential as most people feel it is. His answer suggests people do “weird things” after a search, like stepping back, and that indicates that clicks on a ranked site are not an accurate measure of its quality. Besides, there are ways to encourage higher rankings and that is to optimize long-tail keywords, Meta descriptions, etc. Here is the best content marketing strategy of 2018 to follow to promote your website naturally in search engines.

Insight #4:  On Whether Google Algorithms Differ in Countries

A Reddit user doubted if there are inconsistencies for rankings for different zones, as denoted by the country code on Google websites. This raised the question whether the search engine uses different algorithms or ranking factors based on nations. Mueller says Google try not to adopt distinct algorithms per language or nation since it is more scalable to create something that is uniform for the web. He puts the inconsistencies, such as rich snippets launched in select markets, down to local content.

Insight #5:  How do Spammers and Bots Influence Search Trends and Volume?

The essence of the question is whether bots and spammers can be held accountable for non-organic trends, which illicit marketers can take up. In response, Mueller says that Google is doing their best to block and filter those, although captcha pops up to even the most reasonable search queries. There has to be a way to help people get what they want without having to prove they are no robots, and Mueller rightly feels there should be an easier way to block and filter bots and spammers without having to rely too much on captcha.

Insight #6:  Creating Different Pages for Each Question and Answer

A Reddit user asked since his website has articles on a range of topics, whether it would be possible to create articles for each question and answer without violating Google’s duplicate content guidelines. Mueller suggests a different idea: work on quality, not quantity.

Insight #7:  John Mueller’s Definition Of a Wrong SEO Advice

He says a wrong SEO advice is one that has no effect on rankings in the long run, especially. He equates it to advising a business to change invoice printing paper – something that involves time and effort for no real beneficial outcome.

Insight #8:  On the Frequency of Publishing Content and Ranking

It has been a misconception among site owners that publishing content frequently can attain higher search rankings. He says that Google algorithms do not give preferential treatment to websites that publish content regularly than other websites.

Insight #9:  SEO Tip to Avoid Duplicate Content

One method SEOs use to avoid duplicate content, which may impact rankings, is to rewrite the source content with subtle differences. That is by using synonyms and associated words to make the content unique. According to Mueller, this can be counterproductive to a website. It is always best to make content as unique as possible.

Insight #10:  The Mobile-First Index

The mobile version of a site is a priority when it comes to what Google includes in the index, making it the main version over the desktop version. This change is rolling out to only those sites, which the search engine considers ready for the move. This is why Mueller states webmasters not to panic. In other words, until the site is ready to be launched as a mobile-friendly version, he advises sticking to quality content on desktop version to get indexed and then crawled. The logic is to take time to come with the best mobile-friendly site that ranks higher.

Content Marketing Tips by ShouTech

27 actionable content marketing tips for modern day Digital Marketing (Infographic)

Did you know Content Marketing roughly generates 3 times as many leads as Traditional Marketing and costs 62% less?

Whether you are a Content Marketing pro or a newbie who has just entered the industry, it is never a bad idea to go back to the basics and review them.

Understanding the consumer psyche is the ultimate way to seek success in Content Marketing industry. Instead of writing what you want to share, write what the reader is willing to read. Thus, it is advocated to create a buyer persona before you start producing content. This is an ideal way that will lead to much higher conversions. As a Content Marketer, if you realize this fact, half the battle is won.

Identify ways to build and maintain a deeper connection with the reader. This can be done via storytelling approach which is not only engaging but helps the reader relate to the content shared.

Additionally, take care of producing lengthy pieces of content as it is truly effective in positioning as an authoritative topic. Also, it is effective in improving the search engine ranking. According to Backlinko, ‘content with more words can cover a wider breadth and are likely preferred to shorter superficial articles’. Ideally, the content length has a correlation with the SERP position. However, it can be accomplished only with strong SEO practices.

In the hoard of creating a long form of content do not compromise with the quality. Remember, nothing replaces quality and authenticity when building an audience. There is so much content available online. In the pool of so much content, trace ways to stand out from your competitors by producing unique quality-based content.

Further, tap on influencers to multiply your content reach. Make reference to influencers by linking to their content or quoting them within your Content Marketing activities. Riding on their brand identity will not only produce the better result in real-time but also save a lot of time.

Besides this, repurposing old content in a new way is one Content Marketing tip that will never fade away. This will bring freshness to the existing content thus providing certain unique value to the readers.

Moving on, ‘Great visual content must enhance the story being told.’ Content coupled with relevant images, GIFs, videos, infographics act as the perfect blend as these visual elements substantiate the text well. These days readers are not keen on reading it all, if the same information is displayed in the form of graphics, the impact becomes double.

More so, blogging on a regular basis is another important yet not much-paid heed upon Content Marketing tactic. This way, a level of consistency is maintained and the readers get hooked on your content as they’ll look forward to your content. In addition to this, ensure that you promote the content thoroughly on different social media channels. ‘94% of B2B Marketers Use LinkedIn to Distribute Content and is the Most Used Social Media Site’, as reported in LinkedIn Selling.

Moreover, to help develop your reputation and visibility online, syndicate your content to reach a new audience and drive referral traffic back to your site.

Another worth considering Content Marketing tactic is to create a series of content to drive repeated traffic. In a nutshell, do not generate one-off pieces of content. This will keep your readers hooked to your content.

Do not miss out on having a clear and dedicated Call-to-Action (CTA) to trigger the reader to leave his/her credentials either by leaving a comment in the section or filling-up the form. It could either be in a textual format or a graphic too! Also, track and measure the performance of the Call-to-Action used. This will help you analyze what is working best for your audience.

Practice the art of guest blogging on popular industry blogs and link back to your website to generate traffic from organic and paid sources. By getting involved in guest post submissions, you get the chance to explore new audience that will help boost your SEO.

Make email marketing an inevitable element of your Content Marketing strategy! 8-% of businesses report that email id directly related to their primary revenue. So, now you know what not to miss at all!

Leveraging the aforementioned content marketing tips is an assured way to turn around your marketing strategy and fetch the desired number of sales conversions.
