The Billion Dollar SEO Empire built under the guise of Google Ventures     Have you ever taken some time to reflect on Google’s massive list of acquisitions and mergers? I mean seriously actually sit down and looked at what Google as actual has accumulated over the years? It's quite staggering. Here's just some of their properties.   For a full list just take a look at their plethora of properties here from advanced robotics to digital marketing CRM's they have their net cast across every field. It’s a bit scary if you do. Actually, it might make some of you go hide in the woods before the robots arrive and take over. For the uninitiated, check out this list on Wikipedia and just scan through some of those prices. Is this for real? Yup, they throw around gazillions of dollars like it’s monopoly money. But that isn’t all, they invest in more than just this list of mergers and acquisitions. This is where “Google Ventures” comes in, their investment arm which allows them to dip into all kinds of cool stuff. And that is where things can get a little sketchy. What happens when...

Is online video advertising and marketing the new big thing or all hype?     These charts show a glimpse into the ROI of the potentially lucrative world of Video Marketing through Ads, Affiliate Offers, etc   Your video ad metrics are likely failing you—at least when it comes to helping you understand ROI. A new study from the Nielsen Media Lab and HIRO Media suggests that there’s hardly any correlation between engagement-based metrics (like click-through rates and views) and ROI (intent to purchase). So while it might be nice to brag that your Facebook video got a million views, those views still don’t tell you how many people remembered the ad or decided they wanted to buy your product. It shouldn’t be surprising, then, that 43 percent of marketers say they have difficulty proving the ROI of their online video ads, according to an eMarketer report. Without knowing how to show business results, it’s difficult for marketers to optimize going forward. To help out, Nielsen looked at three non-engagement-based metrics and studied how they affected consumer behavior: 1. Player size: small (300 x 250) vs. big (640 x 360) 2. Content environment: content relevant to target audience vs. non-relevant 3. Site ranking: comScore top 1000 vs. comScore top 10 Here’s what Nielsen found.   1. You might be burning...

Here's their thoughts and predictions on future trends in the industry.   With Digital heavy hitterz like Superstar Sean Si of SEO-Hacker (one of our Influencers), The OG of Growth Hacking Nasty Neil Patel of KISSmetrics (awesome company name broheem), Ziggy Zac Johnson, host of ROTE podcast & CANNOT FORGET "Vicious" Venchito Tampon of..well venchitotampon.com fame.   Drazen Prastalo, founder of IncomeMesh.com Affiliate marketing won’t change drastically in 2016, those who were successful in 2015 will remain successful if they continue to follow the same principles. The affiliate formula is always the same - find out what people need or desire (pain points) and put the solution in front of them. Now, what separates successful affiliates from unsuccessful ones is persistence (most of the time). Yes, we all fail from occasionally, but the ones who keep going are the ones who succeed in the end. From my personal experience finding the solution for people’s problems and showing it to them in a clearest way possible, is the way to go. Sure, traffic matters, but you don’t need tens of thousands monthly visitors to make money...
