Digital Marketing Services – A1 USA Real Estate Fri, 20 May 2022 14:41:55 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Digital Marketing Services – A1 USA Real Estate 32 32 A digital marketing expert explains why AI-generated content violates Google’s guidelines Fri, 20 May 2022 14:41:55 +0000

London, United Kingdom – May 20, 2022 – There has been a lot of discussion within the SEO community about AI-generated content and whether it violates Google’s content guidelines recently.

The guidelines were introduced to ensure that content has a strong AET, which is essentially how Google delivers the most relevant, effective and highest quality pages to internet users.

According to Google Webmaster Guidelines and Google Search Advocate John Mueller, regardless of the AI ​​tools used, AI-written content could result in a manual penalty as it is considered spam. However, Google’s systems aren’t always able to detect AI-generated content – which is why there may be practical uses for AI writing tools, and why many reputable organizations use them. for many years for automating search and cross-referencing without any problems. But, Mueller clarifies that if the spam team were to see it, they would see it as spam. So action will be taken.

So, in order to avoid being removed from search engine results and losing your organic visibility, Google advises to avoid this method for now. However, the use of AI tools for auto-generated content is nothing new and has been used for fact-checking, identifying emerging trends, and even writing full-length articles.

Speaking about this increased use of AI-generated content in the digital marketing industry, James Speyer, Senior SEO Account Strategist at The Brains, says:

“Google doesn’t and never has liked shortcuts. They’ve gone to great lengths to reduce the number of people ‘gaming’ the system, from developing more advanced methods of passing link authority to the introduction of an optimizing semantic language to stop exact match keyword spamming AI-written content is simply another way to game the system – a quick and easy way to generate pages that allow websites to produce masses of low-level content without the need for credible research or editorial standards to produce. Lots of rankings, no effort. So, although Google has no legal power to prevent webmasters from using this content, it can clearly consider it unacceptable under its guidelines, removing websites from its index if detected.This is not a perfect method, and it will not deter everyone from practicing. ue, but for companies built on search revenue, it makes the prospect of using AI to produce content much less attractive and much more risky. – James Speyer, Senior SEO Account Strategist, The Brains

How Adirondack Folk School Learned Digital Marketing Skills – Mon, 09 May 2022 18:56:11 +0000

By Olivia Dwyer, NAFC CPR Program Navigator

A flooring factory seems an unlikely place to find a social media mastermind. But that’s exactly where Scott Hayden headed soon after becoming executive director of the Adirondack Folk School (AFS). It was June 2016, and Hayden wanted to meet Eric Matthison, the owner of Square Nail Rustics, and find out how he used Facebook to find clients and grow his business.

After Matthison cut the ribbon on the new site for his wide-plank flooring and rustic furniture business, Hayden asked if he could buy Matthison’s lunch and talk social media. In December 2015, Square Nail Rustics had 20,000 likes; that number would double by December 2016. Amid this growth, Matthison said he was too busy for lunch breaks, but Hayden could bring lunch to the store if he wanted to talk. Hayden did, and he still remembers what Matthison said. “He said focus on who, not what,” Hayden said. “It marked me.”

And, Haden wondered, who would be “the who” for the Adirondack Folk School? Simply put, anyone whose personal interests match the unique opportunities AFS offers.

Founded in 2010 and based in Lake Luzerne, NY, the nonprofit arts and culture organization offers non-competitive classes and workshops in Adirondack arts, crafts, and traditions. In 2022 alone, the AFS course catalog includes 280 courses from 47 expert instructors in 20 areas of craftsmanship – from fiber arts to blacksmithing to Schreiner’s course on making bark picture frames. birch. Classes are limited to eight students and each participant leaves with a finished piece of work.

“We attract people who value craftsmanship and the fulfillment you can only gain by making something you’ve worked hard to achieve,” Hayden said. “If we can connect the right ‘who’ to the right ‘what’, that’s how we can make an impact.”

Over the next few years, Hayden and AFS program manager Amy Fasulo, the school’s only full-time employees, turned that work ethic into a digital presence. They created AFS accounts on Instagram and Facebook, tested online advertising options, and created content with photos of classes in progress and completed work. And when they heard about an eight-week digital marketing series available for free through ANCA’s Center for Pandemic Response (CPR), they saw a chance to learn from the experts.

“Given our limited capacity and budget, we try to take advantage of every opportunity to advance our mission,” Hayden said. “We jumped at the chance to become more efficient in reaching our ideal market and growing our audience.”

First, Hayden filled out an ANCA CPR Interest Form. Next, Hayden spoke with a program navigator to identify his organization’s challenges. Next, the ANCA CPR created an individualized resilience plan for AFS by recommending technical service providers available through the program for free or at low cost. This included the digital marketing series presented by the North Country Chamber of Commerce and Workshop, a full-service advertising agency in Lake Placid.

Valued at $3,000, the program was offered free of charge to 33 ANCA CPR clients, who learned website development, search engine optimization, content strategy, public relations and influencer marketing, web analytics, and how to prioritize and budget for digital media. “The ANCA CPR program has helped us use best practices and look at data to analyze who we’re missing down to zip code,” Hayden said. As the series concluded in March 2022, the recordings are available to businesses and organizations registered with ANCA CPR.

AFS has already seen the benefit of implementing ANCA CPR services. Recently, a Massachusetts woman signed up, along with her daughter and granddaughter, for a stained glass class in July. Hayden pieced together the digital path she followed to AFS: She Googled “chair canning,” which AFS once offered but dropped. This search resulted in Google ads with related keywords, including one for Adirondack Folk School. One click took her to the AFS website. A few others found what she was looking for: a hands-on learning experience to share with multiple generations.

Just as AFS connects curious minds with unique opportunities to create beautiful crafts, ANCA CPR introduces small businesses and organizations to technical service providers supporting COVID-19 recovery and building a prosperous future. “It’s so important that we keep our small businesses, whether it’s a restaurant or a cultural organization,” Hayden said. “We appreciate ANCA’s forward thinking in reinforcing what makes our region special.”

ANCA CPR customers continue to access free expert knowledge. On April 26, experts from CITEC Business Solutions, the Cooperative Development Institute, and the SUNY Canton Small Business Development Center discussed what they offer at the Strategic Tools for Small Businesses Navigating COVID-19 event. 19. Watch a video recording of the workshop on the ANCA YouTube channel.

In May 2022, these experts will lead workshops on strategic planning, participatory management and business growth planning. See the complete program and the description of the workshops, and send an e-mail [email protected] register.

The ANCA CPR is funded by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration and the Mastercard Impact Fund, which is administered by the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth.

Experts say changes are imminent on Twitter, a CEO swap is likely Sun, 01 May 2022 13:10:30 +0000
  • On Monday, Elon Musk offered to buy Twitter for $44 billion and take it private.
  • The potential takeover has sparked speculation about the future of leadership at Twitter.
  • Consultants and experts say changes are imminent and a CEO swap is likely.

Elon Musk has a new technology platform to control. On Monday, Musk, the founder of Tesla, SpaceX, Neuralink and The Boring Company, offered to buy Twitter for $44 billion. This acquisition would place the richest man in the world at the head of one of the most powerful

social platforms


The potential takeover has sparked speculation about the future of Twitter’s leadership and whether Parag Agrawal, the company’s recently appointed CEO, will remain in the role.

Known for his visionary leadership and out-of-the-box thinking, Musk took Tesla from a fringe brand to the world’s most valuable auto company and recently sent a civilian crew of four into orbit in a SpaceX spacecraft.

Experts who spoke with Insider said it’s hard to predict the moves of such an unpredictable character. “It’s impossible to know what Elon Musk will do next,” said Richard Levick, president and CEO of Levick, a crisis public relations firm.

Levick’s company represented Musk’s private spaceflight company, so Levick has first-hand knowledge of Musk’s penchant for unpredictability.

“I remember one night in particular, he called at 6 or 7 at night and said, ‘I’m flying to Washington. Can we have a press conference at 9 o’clock tomorrow morning? ‘” Levick said. “We were successful, and the press conference was a success, but I share this story because I think it indicates that no one knows what Elon Musk is thinking, and sometimes not even Elon Musk.”

Insider spoke with experts including Levick; a reputation management consultant; and a CEO consultant on how Twitter’s executive leadership could crumble under Musk. Their two biggest predictions were that changes are imminent and that a CEO swap is likely.

Change is on the horizon

Musk went public with his grievances with Twitter management. On Tuesday, Musk, who has more than 88 million followers, posted a barrage of tweets criticizing two of the company’s top executives.

Jim Baker, Twitter’s deputy general counsel, faced trolling after Musk confirmed a tweet by right-wing activist Mike Cernovich accusing Baker of committing fraud as FBI general counsel. Twitter policy and legal chief Vijaya Gadde also faced online harassment after Musk describe his decision to restrict a report on the platform as “incredibly inappropriate”.

Experts say Musk’s rifts with top executives are clear indicators that Twitter’s leadership will change under his watch.

“I think you’re going to see a painful cascade of carnage,” said Eric Schiffer, president and CEO of Reputation Management Consultants. “It will be an emotional boost for many executives who were in a comfortable position.”

Musk has also made clear his intentions to turn Twitter into a bulwark of free speech. In response to his tweet Criticizing on Tuesday “the extreme antibody reaction of those who fear free speech”, he said: “By ‘free speech’ I simply mean what is within the law. I am against censorship that will way beyond the law.”

Levick wondered if Musk would be able to invoke the kind of free speech rights he envisions globally on the platform. “They don’t have the First Amendment in China,” he said. “European regulators are far ahead of the Americans when it comes to internet regulation. How will he deal with the Digital Services Act that the EU has just passed?”

Musk has expressed his intention to make Twitter private. Jay Baer, ​​a digital marketing consultant, suggested this would make it easier to implement sweeping changes to the company’s leadership and revenue model.

Last year, Twitter reported total revenue of around $5 billion. “I think he really believes that with a few changes there could be a colossal medium-term increase in revenue and profit,” Baer said. “At the end of the day, I don’t think he’ll make a move like this unless he sees a financial benefit.”

Yet, although some have hailed him as a decisive leader, Musk often confuses observers. “I think it’s very difficult to interpret what he’s doing and his intentions. I think we’re wrong to assume that he will necessarily become deeply involved in day-to-day operations,” said Tom Goodwin, CEO consultant .

A CEO swap is likely

Agrawal, who replaced Twitter founder Jack Dorsey as CEO last year, took the helm at a critical time as the platform introduced revenue-generating features such as its subscription product Blue and Ticketed Spaces, which allows creators to charge for exclusive access to their content.

Following Dorsey’s announcement of Agrawal’s appointment, Musk posted a meme of Agrawal’s head edited out of the body of Joseph Stalin, the Soviet leader known for his strict censorship. In an April 13 filing, Musk said he had “no confidence in management.”

Experts say Musk’s strident criticism of Agrawal indicates the CEO’s firing is likely.

But Baer said if Agrawal was to be expelled, it should not be seen as the result of incompetent leadership.

“Given the amount of turmoil internally and globally during his short tenure, I don’t see too many ways he could have done better,” Baer said. “Talent acquisition is on the rise. Twitter is the NFT leader among social networks. The platform is more vital than ever as a cultural touchstone, globally.”

At a company-wide town hall following the Musk acquisition announcement, Agrawal told employees that Twitter’s future under Musk was uncertain, Reuters reported.

Musk’s tendency toward brashness and off-the-cuff tweets raises questions about his approach to free speech and his ability as Twitter owner to use the platform as his personal megaphone. And experts who spoke with Insider say that while Musk has proven himself as a leader, anyone’s guess is what he will do next.

TruckPro, FleetPride and MAC Trailer top April M&A news Fri, 29 Apr 2022 06:07:14 +0000

After a very busy February and March, each of which saw momentous acquisition announcements in the supplier segment, M&A activity slowed in the dealer, aftermarket and supplier segments in April .

National aftermarket chains were again busy, but few other deals were announced.

TruckPro was the first company to make the news this month. He announced the acquisition of Denali Drivelines, an Alaska-based service and rebuilding company. “This acquisition will strengthen our current operations and footprint in Alaska and provide customers with access to broader product offerings. We are excited about the decades of superior powertrain and transmission expertise their team brings to TruckPro and it is a privilege to welcome our new associates to the TruckPro family,” said TruckPro CEO Chuck Broadus. .

Fullbay followed on April 6, when it announced its recently completed acquisition of Dieselmatic Digital. the digital marketing agency focused exclusively on diesel repair shops. “Dieselmatic is a perfect fit for Fullbay and our customers,” said Patrick McKittrick, CEO of Fullbay. “Their existing brand equity combined with their demand-generating digital marketing services expands our reach and capabilities. Dieselmatic will generate more business in stores, while Fullbay will help stores run this business as efficiently as possible. »

The next milestone of the month came in the fleet management sector when Rand McNally purchased Fleetsu Pty Ltd. Fleetsu is a cloud-based data analytics fleet management solution provider that enables customers to manage their fleets more efficiently. Aaron Dannenbring, CEO of Rand McNally, said, “Fleetsu takes our existing expertise to the next level as we now offer the industry’s best connected fleet platform, which complements our already strong hardware, shipping, logistics and publishing. »

The only manufacturer to add capacity in April was MAC Trailer, which acquired Bullet Trailer and its Washington production facility. “This expansion is a critical step toward continued growth in the Western region,” said Bill McKenzie, president of sales, MAC Trailer Enterprises. “The Bullet will complement our already diverse dump trailer applications. We have added production facilities in Texas, Oklahoma, Oregon, Montana and now Washington to continually reduce transportation costs and effectively support our western dealers.

The latest acquisition of the month came from FleetPride, which hit 300 sites nationwide with its purchase of Murray’s Diesel Repair of Shreveport, Louisiana. “This is a momentous acquisition for FleetPride,” CEO Mike Duffy said. “Not only are we excited to welcome the entire Murray Diesel Repair team to our business, this acquisition also pushes FleetPride to more than 300 locations across the country. It’s only fitting that a strong, talented and dedicated team like Murray’s Diesel Repair is the one that helped us get there.”
