Web Ranking in Niche Markets

By: Linda Yarbrough, The Media Mix

You can achieve high web rankings in your niche markets. Adhere to search engine guidelines to deliver targeted traffic to your site. Don’t use tricks that can get your site banned from the search engines.  And don’t chase the latest short-cuts.  Just dig in and provide your prospects with the information they are searching for.  Study your competition to understand how your web site fits in search engine rankings  … and where the potential is to rise to the top in your category.  It takes lots of hard work and research to target traffic with solid content.  But it pays off with increased long-term traffic …. targeted traffic.  Begin by dominating your niche market with multiple keyword combinations and long-tail-keywords.


Top 5 Tips for Email Marketers

How to avoid the dreaded “Unsubscribe” Request

It’s clean out email trash day around here again … and I’ve got to shout out (or at) email marketers!

1. The quickest way to a Trash Bin is to oversend emails. Seriously, stop email overkill. I have found myself on the opt-in list of many Internet Marketers who are sending up to 8 emails a day … every day!

Oh my. Do they really think we can’t go a few hours without hearing their latest offer or words of wisdom? Or we’ll forget them if not hounded by email? If your writing isn’t more memorable than that – give it up!

Social Media and Your Business Website


Like most business owners with a website, I am exploring the world of Social Media to determine where to put my best efforts. If you’ve been chasing the latest internet social media trends you are probably by now dizzy from information overload.

You just can’t do it all … and do it all well!

In my mind that means you have to experiment and use Stats Tracking to measure results. You’ll also want to measure other responses to make your decisions: Are sales up or down? Are phone calls to your business on the rise or non-existent? You can tell by the questions your customers ask what they have read on the internet that led to a phone call, email or walk-in. If you can’t, then ASK.

had a call this morning from a gentleman name DJ. He’s located in a small town in Alabama. He was on our website www.themediamix.com and wanted to talk with me. He said he might want to buy air time on NBC and could I tell him 5 – 10 steps about how to go about buying TV media himself.

I told him that for local media, he could call a station or cable network directly and ask for the Sales Department. They would assign an Account Executive who would be glad to come out and get him set up with media time.
