Gary Vaynerchuk is a Social Media Marketing influencer, well know author, Youtube and a Podcast host. In this week’s podcast we have extracted the top 10 skills that every Digital Marketers should learn from Gary Vee ! Do What You Love !

The 151st episode of Digital India Podcast on FIR Podcast Network is brought to you by staff and students of  Web Marketing Academy
 
Gary Vaynerchuk is the chairman of VaynerX, a modern-day media and communications holding company, and the active CEO of VaynerMedia, a full-service advertising agency servicing Fortune 100 clients across the company’s 4 locations.
 
Some example blog posts we discussed:
Keep in Touch with Gary Vee :

In the late 90s, after identifying “the internet” as a land-grab opportunity, Gary transitioned his father’s local liquor store into one of the first wine e-commerce platforms resulting in growing the family business from $3-60MM in sales during a 5-year period.

During his time in the family business, Vaynerchuk also started one of the first long-form episodic video shows on YouTube in 2006 called WineLibraryTV, filming 1,000 episodes over a 5-year window. Gary’s wine knowledge, charisma, and uncanny ability to engage with his community landed him appearances on national television with Ellen Degeneres and Conan O’Brien, as well as establishing him as one of the most followed people on social media during its nascent years.

Not only did Gary leverage content creation and the rise of social media for his personal brand, but it was the seed which would become the pillar to his now 9-year old advertising agency VaynerMedia, servicing brands with an ever-expanding variety of offerings.

10 Things every Digital Marketer can learn from GaryVee:

  1. Being a practitioner in Digital and social media,
  2. Create time for your customers, potential customers, fans or followers,
  3. Being open and transparent, 
  4. Create and publish content, don’t wait for perfect timing. Don’t look for perfection, Learn from mistakes,
  5. Ignore the haters online,
  6. Create, repurpose content, but come with up valuable, useful content,
  7. Stay up-to-date,
  8. Own your mistake, 
  9. Be nice to people and have empathy,
  10. Be energetic and express your passion towards what you love doing.

If we’re talking about Facebook, there are various formats of posts but most people stick to just images, videos and carousel. There’s a lot to experiment. You can add notes, this again is a feature most people aren’t using. You can have polls and then there’s also Facebook’s live feature. Then there’s also a feature called ‘frames’ that helps in brand awareness. Go to Facebook camera effects – create an account, it will automatically fetch your page and ask you to create a frame, here you upload your created frame – add the proper title, description and keywords.
Now, coming to Facebook Messenger, many features like we see on Instagram or Snapchat and also has an additional features like cutting a video. FB messenger tool is sufficient to create an instant picture.
If you have a page on Facebook, you can target audience organically too under Preferred Page audience or you can also restrict or exclude audience.
Another feature for pages is Branded Content – request from the brand you want to partner with – request FB to add this feature to your page – brand associations.

Coming up with a marketing plan on paper and practically applying it is not the same. I’m sure a lot of you who have been part of this scenario can relate. And this is exactly what Mr. Narendhiran, Marketing Manager, Hacker’s Earth shares with us in this Podcast.
The 145th episode of Digital India Podcast on FIR Podcast Network is brought to you by staff and students of  Web Marketing Academy
Mr. Narendhiran was responsible for coming up with a marketing plan for an event – ‘India’s biggest Hackathon’.
He talks about the various ‘hiccups’ he came across starting from proposing the plan. He didn’t think of considering the budget before proposing the plan to his manager. This may sound amateur to us but, Mr. Narendhiran expresses how every mistake had helped him learn, grow and explore.
He mentions how and why he chose the platforms; be it E-mail, Google’s Display Network, Facebook, Linkedin or Twitter.
He even explained what offline channels he chose and its impact on the changes that reflected in analytics.
How he was able to use IFTTT for Google Display Network to solve another ‘hiccup’ he encountered and got approx. 1200 results from it.
He takes us through every decision he took (offline or online), why he took it and what impact it had.
Though he achieved the set goals through his marketing campaigns, Mr. Narendhiran talks excitedly about the mistakes and problems he stumbled upon and the hacks it led to.
One learns more from the mistakes he makes than the success he achieves.
The only flaw with the mistakes you make is not learning something new.
And Mr. Narendiran’s humble learnings encourage us to make new mistakes so we are encouraged to explore more.

The 144th episode of Digital India Podcast on FIR Podcast Network is brought to you by staff and students of  Web Marketing Academy
Podcast Summary:
Customer Experience is not customer service, customer success, or sales.  It’s the the sum of all interactions a customer  has with an organization beginning from awareness of a need, through purchase and usage.
The modern customer, whether in India, Canada, or Japan has counter-measures to block out corporate marketing efforts. Why do they do this? Because of an avalanche of SMS’s, emails, and targeted advertising.
Strategies like content marketing allow the modern marketer to present useful information when the customer is looking for it, and is structured to put the customer in control of when and how they receive the information.
Understand how your customer thinks and feels, know what she says and does, then compile this into a customer persona, and map their experience using a customer journey map. Armed with this kind of information, a content marketing strategy will add real value to your customers, build awareness, and maximize conversions.

This podcast answers more such similar queries and blogging and what the future looks like.
The 142nd episode of Digital India Podcast on FIR Podcast Network is brought to you by staff and students of  Web Marketing Academy

Siddhi stumbled upon a few hitches and had queries that led us to this podcast. We try to explain why blogging is such an integrated part of the internet. A lot of people feel blogging is dead as other formats are gathering more engagement. While there are others who look at it as a lucrative platform.

Is any of this true or just myths?

Suresh shares how he stumbled upon blogging and discovered it’s power
and shares examples of his experiences as he answers questions.

A recent Annual Report by Facebook:

Source: Facebook IQ: https://www.facebook.com/iq/

“The team at Facebook IQ has compiled its first-ever annual report to help marketers plan for the year ahead. In The Annual Topics and Trends Report, we share some of the conversations that have been on the rise in 2017 and that we anticipate will take hold in 2018.

Due to the size of the Facebook platform, we have a unique vantage point to see which conversations are growing at scale and taking hold, and which are simply a flash in the pan. Our findings are grounded in real data and real insights from the 2 billion people across Facebook.

The trends we feature are starting to take hold and enter the mainstream. This is not necessarily their point of conception, but rather as they are going from niche to norm.

These are the trends people are talking about, that the market is ready for and you should consider, as you think about creative planning and product development.”

Vloggers – Not just Digital Marketing Vloggers but here are some of the Vloggers you might want to check out.In this week’s podcast Aman, Siddhi, Pooja, and Suresh shared some of the Vloggers you might have to follow:
The 135th episode of Digital India Podcast on FIR Podcast Network is brought to you by staff and students of  Web Marketing Academy
We have selected a few vloggers their work and basically their journey.

Vloggers are like Bloggers but with video content.

Not only is their journey amazing but also is the way they come up with content and how they engage/influence their audiences.

  1. Nas Daily: 1 Minute Vlog Daily. Over a year ago, Nuseir Yassin, the face, and mind behind viral videographer Nas Daily, quit his job at Venmo in New York City. Since then, Yassin, 25, says he’s at “33 percent,” which is the fraction of his life already lived, and even wears T-shirts with a 33 percent timeline every day. Today, despite his past as a Harvard graduate, he travels and makes videos everything, something so many people aren’t able to do until the latter part of their lives.  Source: Resource Magazine: http://resourcemagonline.com/2017/06/why-nas-daily-quit-his-job-at-venmo-to-make-facebook-videos/79257/ His Facebook page has all the videos  https://www.facebook.com/nasdaily/ his website: https://www.nasdaily.com/
  2. Pewdie Pie https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-lHJZR3Gqxm24_Vd_AJ5Yw who has a youtube channel with over 5 crore subscribers. He’s a comedian but started his vlogs with gaming and that’s’ why they fall under his vlog name ‘Let’s play’. He has also been associated with controversies concerning anti-semitism given his comic work but that hasn’t decreased his fan base amongst the youth.
  3.  ‘Superwoman” – Lily Singh https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfm4y4rHF5HGrSr-qbvOwOg! Her journey is an inspiration to young girls. She’s a vlogger, comedian, actress, rapper, musician, author etc. She has also taken initiatives to empower woman and decrease the hatred for females in society for which even Youtube recognized her.
  4. Why Gary Vaynerchuk, GaryVee’s Vlog is one of the most motivating, inspiring vlog on Social Media:  Gary Vaynerchuk is a serial entrepreneur and the CEO and founder of VaynerMedia, a full-service digital agency servicing Fortune 500 clients across the company’s 4 locations. Gary is also a prolific public speaker, venture capitalist, 4-time New York Times Bestselling Author: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCctXZhXmG-kf3tlIXgVZUlw

  5. Google Webmaster Central YouTube Channel has great resources for Webmaster, Search Marketer, and Website Owners :official YouTube channel for Google Webmasters, where you can find information and tools to help you understand and improve your site in Google Search. https://www.youtube.com/user/GoogleWebmasterHelp

In today’s Information overload, how do we know which content to consume, which content to ignore and where to find the right content. We have this FOMO: Fear of Missing Out, but with so much noise on the internet every produces content and want to share their content. How does one decide what type of content should we consume? This Podcast content comes from a LinkedIn Post which Suresh wrote. 
 
We talked about Discovery Content, Bookmarkable Content, and Timely content
 

What is content?

In the simplest terms, content is information – practical, functional, tactical. Want more definitions? Check out the Top Rank Blog that has 40+ definitions from experts in the industry.

What is Content Marketing?

Definition by Joe Pulizzi of Content Marketing Institute. “Content marketing is the strategic marketing approach of creating and distributing valuable, relevant and consistent content to attract and acquire a clearly defined audience – with the objective of driving profitable customer action.”

Content Marketing Institute has a great resource on definitions of Content Marketing as well in the Getting Started section.

Amazon is in the news again with its project Udaan. An initiative that Amazon rolled out to expand its reach in Rural and semi rural areas by partnering with offline partners. Started in May 2015. We discussed the What, Why, How, Who and partners for the Project Udaan
The 119th episode of Digital India Podcast on FIR Podcast Network is brought to you by staff and students of  Web Marketing Academy
The following was originally posted in ET
Started in May 2015, Amazon rolled out Project Udaan to expand its reach in rural and semi-urban areas by tying up with offline partners such as kirana, medical stores and mobile shopping outlets so that local entrepreneurs could assist the uninitiated in shopping online. What started with just two partners, including business correspondent Vakrangee, which also acts as a last-mile link to villages, and 15 stores across two locations in Maharashtra and Rajasthan has now penetrated deeper into the hinterland. (A business correspondent is authorised to collect small deposits and extend credit on behalf of banks.)

 
Wooing the Village
Udaan now boasts 18 partners, 6,000 stores, delivery in 1,700 pin codes across 650 locations in 21 states and union territories. The target for next month, before Diwali, is to scale up to 10,000 stores. The results are beginning to show: some 75% of new customers for Amazon come from tier-III cities and smaller towns and villages. That share can only grow once Amazon rolls out one-of-its-kind exclusive outlets with assisted ecommerce platform StoreKing in rural Karnataka. (Tier-II, -III and -IV comprise semi-urban centres, and tier-V and -VI rural centres.)

Suresh also addressed India’s outlook to the changing scenario and if traditional marketing techniques were still viable.

Questions regarding SEO, search-ads were also addressed and skills that could help enhance your knowledge were thrown light upon.

The Jio Phone’s effective price is Rs 0, that means to buy this phone you have to pay Rs. 1,500 which is fully refundable after 3 years. Plans start at Rs.153 with unlimited data, voice, and SMS per month. However, the voice will be always free.

 

The company has also provided two sachet packs, at Rs. 24 for two days, or Rs. 54 per week, for users who don’t want to commit to Rs. 153 as an upfront payment. It has an SOS feature as well, which can be activated by pressing 5. The Phone also supports for NFC that enables quick payments, and the ability to cast content.

 

One interesting feature we see here is JioTV which has the support of mirroring your screen on a TV, via a cable that can even be plugged into CRT TVs, which come with a plan of Rs.309 per month called as Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan offer. The other interesting thing is phone also responds to voice commands, which is unprecedented for a feature phone anywhere in the world. The beta testing of the phone is from August 15 and pre booking starts from August 24. We can expect the phone to go on sale from the first week of September.

 

We think Jio’s initial impact has been more in urban/rural areas as Ambani Said No Indians should suffer because of unaffordability. We talked about the how this feature phone will have an impact in Digital Marketing World.

How I survived during uncertainty? You can too……
– Suresh babu
 
2005. I didn’t have a place to stay….
 
When I was Florida, I was working in a Gas station, met a person who comes regularly to the gas station. She told me that she is in an emergency had to leave to another state and she asked me if I can move into her apartment and continue with her lease, a few days passed the security came and asked me to vacate the apartment since I don’t have a lease on my leave. 
 
I moved all my stuff in my car, didn’t have money to lease an apartment, stayed in a motel and lived in my car for a few days.
 
I was working part time as a web marketer, my boss John and Priscilla noticed that my car was packed, they asked me and I told the situation, they gave me one room in their house asked me to move in until the situation is taken care of, till date, I am grateful to John and Priscilla. 
 
This led me to be dedicated, the craving to learn new things in digital. I invested my time in learning and implementing and that was my foundation for where I am today.

The Social Media manager is a motivated individual with experience and a passion for designing and implementing the Company’s content strategy, creating relevant content, blogging, community participation and leadership

What they look for:

  • Experience, and they expect you to prove that experience

  • Made some mistakes during the campaigns? Great you must have learned from the mistakes, keep them handy

  • Motivated Individual: What they expect is for you to take initiatives. Take initiatives & instead of just giving ideas, give a detailed plan for executing those ideas. How to get things done. This is a great opportunity to become the go-to person in the organization.
  • Need some motivation? watch some of the GaryVee’s Videos:

2. Research the Company & Culture:

Any organization hiring you will want to know are you fit for their culture. After all you are going to be part of their culture. Understanding the company, culture that you are applying for will take you a long way. This JD is for ABC company.

Do your research. Look at their websites, social channels, blogs.

Here are few ideas:

  • Look at their website page load time, Usability/design improvements. Take a note
  • You can take a step forward and if you are going to handle their content and social media how would you go about? Prepare a detailed digital/social/content plan. During the interview you can give the plan
  • When you click on the newsletter, you can see the last newsletter published in Jan 2016. Before that they were publishing newsletter on a regular basis. You can ask them why they stopped?
  • You should know the importance of email marketing/lead generation through valuable content.
  • In the about us section you get a sense of the people, the team. Learn more about the team.
  • If you know the interviewer, do some research on their LinkedIn profile

Sample questions

  • Why do you want to work for our company?
  • Why do you like digital/social/content?

Where can you find the answers? Their about us section, blog, social media channels, events. Read the latest blog post, tweets, comments

3. Do you have the expertise and are you a good fit?

Companies like to know how well you know your subject and how your knowledge will help the company.

From the JD:

“Exhibits the ability to jump from the creative side of marketing to analytical side, able to prove why their ideas are sound. Displays in-depth knowledge and understanding of Social Media platforms, their respective participants (Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, Google+Local, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest etc.) and how each platform in different scenarios ”

They expect you to be both “creative & analytically sound”

Be prepared

  • Numbers, reasonings, scenario based answers and case studies
  • What social media tools you use? Why, how often?
  • What metrics matters according to you and why?

Read this book: Analytical Marketer: How to Transform Your Marketing Organization:

Fast Company’s article: Three Questions I Ask Every Job Candidate To Test Their Soft Skills:

From the JD:

“Is a Team player with the confidence to take the lead and guide other employees when necessary. (ie: content development, creation and editing of content, and online reputation management)”

Questions:

  • Are you a good team player?
  • Have you trained your team in the past? In what areas have you trained them? Do you have a reference.

Answers:

Team player: Do you have any awards, recognitions from your organization?

Have some comments for your blog post, videos. Get some screen shot. If you are a #digitalmarketer and don’t have a blog, video or no presence in social media channels, You are NOT a good fit. These are basics

Training: Have you trained anyone under your guidance. An example: you hired an intern who has no idea about video, you trained him/her and now he/she is a pro. Give that example backed with stats and analytics. You can show that video to them

From the JD:

“ Makes evident good technical understanding and can pick up new tools ”

In 2017, you have to be technical if not it’s time to pick up some technical skills.

  • SEO is getting technical, learn how to use AMP in your website
  • Do you know how to integrate custom conversion tracking to a website
  • A/B testing, custom landing page for ads, Google tag manager are all needed for a digital marketer.

In todays podcast, we share interesting stories from Business Today 25th Anniversary issue: Toward a Smarter India. Technologies and Innovations that can transform the country. http://www.businesstoday.in/magazine/issue/january152017 .

 In this issue we took a particular story and discussed that story in the podcast: A tale of two villages

Gujarats Akodara has turned cashless, while nearby Daramali has gone smart – by P.B. Jayakumar ​

We discussed how a village with a population of less than 2000 become the Country’s First Digital Cashless Village and it has Wi-Fi, while almost every household has either a tablet or a laptop. Around 70 per cent of Daramali’s residents have smartphones.
We went thru some of those stats and what we can learn about consistency, adapting change. A hostel for cattle :)
Here are some snippets from the Business Today Jan 2017 Issue:
“Akodara and Daramali, two villages in Sabarkantha district, Gujarat, separated by about 25 km, are similar in many respects. Both have a population of less than 2,000, with Patels as the dominant caste. The Patels own on average one to five acres of land and 20-30 heads of cattle. Both villages cultivate the same crops – cotton, wheat and castor – and have a literacy rate of around 90 per cent. But while both are pioneers in their own way, Akodara is nationally renowned while Daramali remains obscure”.
“Akodara has been much lauded as the country’s first ‘digital, cashless village‘, its achievement endorsed by none other than Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself on January 5, 2015, when he ‘dedicated’ the village to the nation. But little-known Daramali’s achievement is perhaps more impressive, as it has shown how a focused grampanchayat led by a woman sarpanch can, despite limited resources, usher in digital ‘smartness’ .

“And even though “near me” appears to be a mobile-driven phenomenon, across our client base we are still seeing more than 50 percent of the traffic from these queries coming from desktop — and more than 80 percent of the clicks.” – Search Engine Land

Max Holloway, Senior Search Manager at Pi Datametrics.

Colleen Harris at CDK Global investigated whether adding “near me” would help by undertaking a study of 82 auto dealers over a five month period. She found that clickthroughs went up by 81%, compared with businesses that didn’t use “near me” (8,833 clicks vs 4,365 clicks). Impressions increased too, though by just 15%. Good enough!

Do you know that content writers, bloggers, content developers … spend more time creating awesome titles than the actual content piece? Do you know why?

According to one of the most shared articles on Copyblogger, one of the best sites to follow if you’re in the content writing and publishing business (Who isn’t nowadays, anyway?), titled Writing Headlines That Get Results:

“According to some of the best copywriters of all time, you should spend half of the entire time it takes to write a piece of persuasive content on the headline. So if you have a blog post that is really important to you or your business, one that you really want people to read, you should downright obsess over your post title.”

The JLL City Momentum Index has ranked Bengaluru as the most dynamic city in the world, ahead of Silicon Valley and Shanghai. Hyderabad also features in the top 10 list at the fifth position. The results of the rankings are in line with the view held by many of the leaders of the e-commerce giants that are based here, who vouch for the fact that Bengaluru is the destination of choice for new generation companies. However, they also agree that this is due to a combination of factors, primarily the moderate weather and the abundance of skilled labour due to the established IT ecosystem.

This information was given out by Gary Illyes, Webmaster Trends Analyst at Google.

If you’ve been in the digital marketing space and working on SEO for a while, you would most certainly know what structured data is and why Google and other search engines recommend we use it.

People understand the underlying meaning of your web content but search engines have a limited understanding. By providing additional cues with extra HTML tags, search engines and other applications better understand your content and display it in a useful, relevant way.

According to an article titled What’s your biggest digital marketing challenge? From May 2016, the biggest challenge for marketers is the ever evolving nature of digital marketing – the new platforms, technologies, programmatic buying, native ads, and the like. From what I get from this article, it’s clear that strategy is getting confused with tactics. 
Back in 2010, Zappos ran series of ads reiterating themes such as “Powered by service” and “Happy to help. 24/7.”

Today facebook is like the new tea shop or barber shop, thats where we go and thats where we spend our time consuming content in multiple format, first it was text, images, video and now Facebook is launching Facebook Live Audio.https://media.fb.com/2016/12/20/introducing-live-audio/

We are excited about the Live audio being a podcaster, I have been using podcast for more than 10 years now thats where I update myself with latest news and happening,

History of podcast: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_podcasting

Adam Curry Daily source code: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daily_Source_Code

With the launch of Facebook Audio we will see a lot of Music, Radio stations, Celebrities jumping into it first, then publishers and podcasters like us. In India it will have an impact, lot of them will be passive listeners, there is plenty of opportunities for new movers who want to use this space.

According to our Podcast data, we saw a hike in 2016 before it was mostly from US, Europe in the last six months, more downloads are happening from India, which clearly indicates that people are starting to listen to podcast, our students for example, use podcast to upgrade their knowledge.

We look forward for 2017 where audio will play a major role in terms of education, marketing, branding and social media.
Wish you and your family Happy Holidays from Web Marketing Academy staff and students .

It’s a little past mid-October and it’s raining festive offers here in India. We have Diwali, the festival of lights, coming up this week. The last few months had some important festivals as well. As you can imagine, retailers, both online and offline are doing all they can to acquire new customers and maximize sales.

But we have offers going on almost through the year nowadays and e-commerce platforms have been strictly forbidden to offer discounts below minimum operational price (MOP) & comply with FDI regulations.  Has this shift affected the appeal of festive offers for Indians? Are vendors and retailers feeling the pinch? That’s the discussion for today.

                     STORYTELLING FOR BRAND EMOTIONAL CONNECT 

The 59th episode of Digital India Podcast on FIR Podcast Network is brought to you by staff and students of Web Marketing Academy

What can a good story do for a brand?

·         It creates curiosity and intrigue

·         It helps a brand connect emotionally with its customers

·         It offers greater value for an idea

·         It helps a brand build a persona

·         It makes a message much more memorable

Some stories that brands created and that have stayed with us :

  Cadbury

 Google Chrome Tanjore Commercial

  Amazon Kindle

  Google India

Filmmaker Andrew Stanton, creator of PIXAR’s John Carter, Finding Nemo, Toy Story, Wall-E and other big hits (TED Talk)

The Silent Indian National Anthem JANA GANA MANA by deaf & mute children. It left many of us in tears. These were powerful stories.

We have an interview with Prahlad Kakkar in Episode # 55.

Tips to sharpen your storytelling skills

·         Follow the work of top storytellers –  Javed Akhtar, Teejan Bai, The Bauls of Bengal

·         Watch TED Talks.

·         Attend book readings by authors and similar sessions.

·         Whenever you have a piece of content to write, shoot or talk, think, how can we make a story out of this? This can also apply to case studies, whitepapers, videos and podcasts.

·         Tell stories to your children, friends.

·         Practice storytelling skills.
