4 Video Hosting Platforms to Enhance Marketing Strategy – vía @kuno


There is no doubt the use of online video is rising. With amount of people uploading and sharing at an all-time high, there is no reason not to start using online video. So then the question becomes where will you put these videos you create?

Videos are large files, so you are going to need a service that not only provides you the room to upload, but also provides a large amount of bandwidth. Obviously, you want to use a platform that helps build your brand. And finally, you will need a service that reports back to you on how your videos are performing.

Here is a short list of video hosting services that can help you get started with video marketing.

YouTube

We have all heard of and use YouTube—some probably on a daily basis. YouTube is a useful and, most importantly, free service to host your videos. As Barb said yesterday, YouTube has many facets for businesses to take advantage of for online hosting. YouTube allows you to advertise your videos, build your brand and even track their performance with YouTube and Google Analytics.

Vimeo

Vimeo is a hosting service created back in 2004 by a group of filmmakers looking to share their videos. It started out as a website that allowed people to connect and share their visual content, but has now grown into much more. Vimeo remains a place to follow, connect and explore the vast array of content it hosts, but the platform is being geared more toward businesses now.

Vidyard

As Vidyard says themselves, the system was built for marketers. It is a simple system and allows you to sign up for a free 14-day trial of the entire system before you have to pay. This helps you see what it has to offer and decide if it works for you. Much like Wistia, Vidyard allows you to customize your player and thumbnail to help drive viewers. Where Vidyard excels is its integration and analytics.

Hoy estamos felices de anunciar algunas mejoras útiles que facilitan que los dueños de las cuentas de Google Analytics y AdWords vinculen sus cuentas.

Estos son unos beneficios específicos de combinar los datos de AdWords y Analytics:
Todas estas características dependen de la vinculación de las cuentas de AdWords y Analytics, y este proceso es más fácil que antes.

How to Accurately Measure Your Site’s Metrics – Part 1 | thnxz to @SiteProNews


According to a recent presentation on web metrics by Google, the world’s digital habits have dramatically changed in the past 3 years. In 2009, the internet boasted a healthy 1.5 billion users, and just last year, this figure topped out at over 2.3 billion. That’s a 53% increase in just a few short years. Buying habits have also continued to shift. In 2009, when a customer arrived at a brick and mortar store, 70% of their purchasing decisions were already made. Last year, that figure bumped up to 90%.

We live in a multi-channel, multi-screen world, and the sheer variety and volume of paths and choices a customer has to make results in a complicated challenge for marketers. Deciphering how and where your audience is making key decisions continues to be a gigantic hurdle for businesses hoping to understand the true meaning of their metrics.

KPIs que una estrategia de contenidos debería medir – Gracias a @ignaciosantiago


La analítica web y los Indicadores Claves de Desempeño (KPIs) ya no son lo que eran, han evolucionado mucho, y gracias a herramientas como Google Analytics, Omniture, etc, han facilitado enormemente la tarea del reporting en el marketing online y el trabajo diario de los profesionales del sector. En los tiempos que corren, “no sales por la puerta de tu casa“ sin saber los KPIs web básicos, incluyendo el engagement y el ratio de conversión.

Mientras el marketing de contenidos se ha posicionado como una de las estrategias claves en el marketing online a la hora de mejorar los resultados entre B2B y el posicionamiento SEO (con la ayuda de Google Penguin), los profesionales del marketing siguen en la edad de piedra en lo que se refiere a medir la efectividad y el impacto cuando tienen varios tipos de contenido. Por ejemplo, considerando los White Papers como una buena técnica de generación de leads, muchos profesionales del marketing simplemente se centrarán en el número de descargas, pero la pregunta sigue en el aire: ¿Qué puede hacer ese profesional para entender mejor la efectividad de este tipo de contenido?

Las tácticas que funcionan a la hora de medir una página web o un embudo de captación de clientes tradicional no siempre se convierten en nuevos tipos de medición del marketing de contenidos. Para white papers, eBooks, eNwsletters, o cualquiera que sea el formato que elijas, te presento una lista de los KPIs que deberías estar midiendo para tus estrategias de marketing de contenidos:

Los visitantes únicos (UVs) es la métrica estándar de cuántas personas únicas han visitado tu contenido dentro de un marco de tiempo determinado. Este KPI proporciona una base interesante para comparar qué tipo de contenido te trae mayor número de visitas.

8 KPIs que tu estrategia de Marketing de Contenidos debería medir visitantes unicos 

Sin embargo, es importante tener en cuenta que no todas las visitas únicas tienen el mismo valor. Por ejemplo, una visita única a un White Paper es más útil (en principio) que a nuestro blog, si hablamos de generación de leads, sobretodo si esa visita tiene una duración de la visita mayor (que ira en aumento con el tiempo).

Saber donde se lee tu contenido es importante para comprender donde puedes asignar más presupuesto y recursos en función de donde está tu audiencia. De esta manera tus campañas de publicidad pueden llegar a incluso usuarios que antes no tenías en cuenta.

4 Improvements To Google Analytics Real-Time Reports


Thursday, March 28, 2013 | 8:58 AM

 

Real-time reports provide useful insights for businesses that help them understand how their systems are reacting, instantly, such as when you send out an email campaign or engage in marketing that has a temporal nature. It provides alerting / intelligence, giving insight into things that are new or different such as a sudden increase in site traffic. Real-time also lets you win social by capitalizing on trending topics. For example, if you noticed a blog post you published previously is suddenly gaining attention due to something happening in the news, you could highlight it on the front page of your site to draw additional attention and ‘pour fuel’ on the social fire.

Today, we’re announcing 4 improvements to real-time reports. You can now:
  1. Analyze Events in real-time
  2. Breakdown real-time by Desktop/Tablet/Mobile traffic
  3. Create shortcuts to your favorite real-time segments
  4. Compare real-time filtered data against overall real-time data
Let’s go through the changes in more detail:
1. Realtime Events Report
With the real-time events report, you can now not only see the top events as they occur but also filter on particular event categories (and actions). Additionally, you can see whether particular segments of visitors trigger different events and debug your events deployment in real time.
To access this report, navigate to the real-time section of Google Analytics and click on the Events section. You should see a report similar to this:

Clicking on any of the Event Category will drill down and show all the Event Actions and Event Labels for that particular category.
If you are trying to see what events a particular segment of visitors generate, that is easy as well. Any filters you set up in any part of real-time are preserved in the Events report. For example, in the above screengrab we have set up a filter here to see what events are triggered from visitors coming via organic search.
2. Content Breakdown by Desktop/Tablet/Mobile

View Only Mobile Traffic (And 3 other uses for Google Analytics profile filters) // thnxz @CrazyEgg – blog.crazyegg.com


 by 

Google Analytics profile filters rock.

The most common use is to include or exclude data in your reports based on some kind of parameter.

You might want to:

  • View only (or exclude) data from mobile traffic
  • View only (or exclude) data from a particular domain
  • View only (or exclude) data from a particular location

Here’s Google’s definition of a profile filter:  A profile filter is used to limit or modify the data that is included in a Google Analytics profile.

TRANSLATION:  It’s possible to create a set of Google Analytics reports (a profile) that, for example, shows you only the data from your mobile traffic and gets all the rest of the data out of your way.

Once you know how to build new Google Analytics profiles and profile filters you can apply them in numerous situations.  We’ll get to a few other applications at the end of this article.

First, let’s build a profile that only shows us data from our mobile traffic.

Step 1 – Make sure you have a master profile

Before you get started, you want to make sure that you have one profile set up for your website that contains all of your traffic.  For most of us this “catch all” profile will be where we spend most of our time.  If you are already using Google Analytics to monitor your website, this profile will likely already be set up.

google-profiles

Step 2- Set up a new profile

In this example, I will set up a new Google Analytics profile for my new blog,Content Measures.

Here’s how to create your new profile,

1.  Click on ADMIN at the top right of any Analytics page

2.  Select the PROFILES tab and click on + NEW PROFILE

new-profile

3.  Name the profile MOBILE USERS and click on CREATE PROFILE

Congrats!  It’s that easy.  You now have a new profile.

But, this profile is loggin all traffic just like your master profile.  We need to create a filter on our new profile so that it only records data for your mobile traffic.

Let’s get busy creating the profile filter.  Don’t worry, it’s easy.

Step 3 – Create a profile filter

1.  Click on the MOBILE USERS profile

mobile-profile

2.  Click on FILTERS, then + NEW FILTER and enter the following settings,

filter-settings

Bingo.  You’re all set.

What you’ve done here is set a filter so that your new profile will only include traffic data from mobile devices.

Now, let’s take a look at how you might use this data.

Realice un mejor seguimiento de los enlaces gracias a las mejoras de la función Analítica de página

La función Analítica de página ofrece datos de clics en el contexto de su sitio web y es una herramienta eficaz para analizar las páginas del sitio y optimizar su contenido. Anteriormente, esta función se limitaba a mostrar los datos de clics de cada URL y no del enlace real de la página. Asimismo, ofrecía información sobre los enlaces, pero no sobre otros elementos como, por ejemplo, los botones. Nos complace presentar una nueva función que resuelve esta situación y permite que Analítica de página dé un paso más. Más información.

Pan-Session Analysis With Google Analytics


 

Marketing Measurement & Optimization

Multi-Session Analysis With Google Analytics

When it comes to analytics, I am a big fan of pan-session analysis. Pan-session analysis provides insights across multiple visits by the same person. For almost every website it is an incredibly, powerful way to understand your visitors better.

Online-behavior.com

By applying the insights you derive from this analysis, you can further optimize your visitor’s experience and conversion rate.

In the following paragraphs I will describe five different pan-session analysis techniques that deliver great insights.

  • Frequency and recency analysis
  • Time and visits to purchase analysis
  • Pan-session funnel analysis
  • Multichannel analysis
  • Customer analysis

Let’s start with frequency and recency reporting.

1. Frequency And Recency Analysis

Frequency and recency metrics and distributions show you how loyal your audience actually is. Do your visitors only come once and never return? Or do you have a great deal of visitors who come to your website even more than three times a week?

Let’s take a closer look at two reports. First, the ‘count of visits’ report, which shows the frequency of visitors (direct link to report):

Count of Visits report

Almost 80% of the visitors to this website visit the website just once and don’t come again. That doesn’t look very good. Let’s dive into the recency metric, in the ‘days since last visit’ report (go to this reportand click on ‘days since last visit’ tab).

Days Since Last Visit report

The recency graph on itself doesn’t look bad. Almost 90% of the visitors visited the website within the last day. But, we have to subtract the new visitors to get a good overview of the returning visitors percentage and how often they visit the site.

With the combined overview of recency and frequency metrics I would conclude that this website really needs to invest in building a stable base of loyal subscribers / visitors.

Posting new content (a blog?) and offers on a more regular base would definitely help to keep the visitors engaged with this website.

2. Visits And Time to Purchase Analysis

In order to find out more about the product buying decision cycle, the visits and time to purchase reports deliver very useful information. You can find these reports in the E-commerce module of Google Analytics (if you have E-commerce implemented, here is a direct link to report). An example of a “Visits to Purchase” report is shown below:

Visits to Purchase report

In this case roughly 40% of the visitors convert within the first visit and 70% needs one to four visits to come to a buying decision. Wow, 20% of the conversions on this website take place after seven or more visits. What’s happening here?

A lot of websites contain landing pages that are too much focused on making a direct sale. It is extremely important to segment your visitors and apply different tactics to make them convert. The “time to purchase” data shows a similar distribution as we saw earlier:

Time to Purchase report

Now it’s time to segment your data further and find out which visitors convert the highest (visitors from a geographical region, certain campaign traffic, etc.) and which visitors don’t. You can use different strategies for each visitor segment. Leer más “Pan-Session Analysis With Google Analytics”

Best Of 2012: Google Analytics, Big Data & Visualizations


Marketing Measurement & Optimization

This week Adam Singer, Product Marketing Manager at Google, posted a call for people to create “wrap-up” posts for 2012. When I read the call I immediately went to Google Analytics to check Online Behavior account to find out which posts got the most pageviews during the year.

Since I was a bit surprised with the results, I decided to share the numbers. But first a few words on why I was surprised and what I intend to do with this information, after all, analysis without action is not worth sharing!

My biggest surprise was to find no videos in the final list. The site has a section packed with amazing videos from the GAUGE Conference and from the eMetrics Summit. Since filming those videos take a considerable amount of resources and time, I won’t be posting new videos in the coming year.

Another surprise was that there were no cartoons in the list. Our cartoons section is really awesome, and I would expect them to be more popular. But since they take less time and resources to produce, and since I really love them, they will keep being updated frequently.

Without further ado, here are the Top 10 Online Behavior posts on 2012, in order of pages viewed. I have normalized their pageviews into a 10 point scale, where 10 is the most viewed and 1 is the less viewed.

1. Google Analytics Content Experiments – A Guide To Creating A/B Tests – Grade 10

In this post I go over the new Google Analytics Content Experiments, a tool that can be used to create A/B tests from inside Google Analytics. This tool has several advantages over the old Google Website Optimizer, especially if you are just starting the website testing journey. Content Experiments provide a quick way to test your main pages (landing pages, homepages, category pages) and it requires very few code implementations.

GLOSSARY… términos usuales y cotidianos!


staysafeonline.org

We encourage people to use this glossary in presentations, teaching materials and other documents. Select the terms you think are most appropriate for your audience and use them in resources.

Avatar—a personalized graphic file or rendering that represents a computer user or user’s alter ego, often used on Web exchange boards and in online gaming; can be a real-life digital photo, but is more often a graphical representation.

App—a web application, accessed over the Internet, for a mobile device (e.g., smartphone, tablet) that works much like user-installed software on a computer allowing the device to perform specific tasks.

Bandwidth –also called “data transfer rate,” the amount of data that can be carried online from one point to another in a given time period, usually expressed in bits (of data) per second (bps) or bytes per second (Bps). Dial-up Internet accounts, which use a standard telephone line to connect to an Internet Service Provider (ISP), have a very narrow bandwidth (about 50 Kbps or 50,000 bits per second) and take a long time to download data. A broadband Internet account can move data at anywhere from 128 Kbps to 2,000 Kbps or more and can download large files, such as video files, much faster.

Blog—from “web log,” a regularly updated personal journal, conversation, commentary, or news forum on virtually any topic that is published on the Web and may include text, hypertext, images, and links; typically displayed in reverse chronological order, blog posts invite comments from readers creating online communities of individuals with shared interests over time; updating a blog is “blogging,” someone who keeps a blog is a “blogger,” and blog entries are called “posts.”

Botnet—a network of private computers, each of which is called a “bot,” infected with malicious software (malware) and controlled as a group without the owners’ knowledge for nefarious and, often, criminal purposes; computers are typically infected when users open up an infected attachment or visit an infected website.

Browser—short for Web browser, a software application that locates, retrieves, and displays information resources on the World Wide Web. An information resource is identified by a URL (Uniform Resource Locator), and may be a web page, image, video, or other piece of content. Popular browsers include Microsoft Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, and Apple Safari.

Byte—a unit of digital information commonly consisting of eight “bits” (a binary unit and the smallest increment of computer data) used as a measurement of computer memory size and storage capacity (usually in terms of MBs or “megabytes,” and GBs or “gigabytes”). Bits and bit rates (bits over time, as in bits per second [bps]) are also commonly used to describe connection speeds.  Leer más “GLOSSARY… términos usuales y cotidianos!”

How to Increase Your Blog and Website Sales Conversion Rates with A/B Split Testing


Jeffbullas’s Blog

A/B Testing has been used by a number of online entrepreneurs for a long time now. With the huge benefits that it promises, this is not that surprising. Small businesses, medium-scale enterprises and large companies all benefit from A/B Split Testing.How to Increase your Blog and Website Sales Conversion Rate with AB Split Testing

But for you to be able to utilize this tool to its maximum potential, it is a must that you first have even a working understanding of what it is and how it works. This is actually one of the common pitfalls for some online entrepreneurs. They do not reap the full benefits of certain tools because they have not applied it well. Do not be one of them. Do your research and apply the best practices.

 What is A/B Split Testing?

This is one of the first questions that need to be answered. Essentially, this is a technique wherein two versions of a webpage, email or personal message is sent to customers. But in these versions, almost all the elements are the same except for one.

The goal here is to track the changes in customer behavior. So when a specific action or change in behavior is recorded, there is only one factor to which the change can be attributed. This is the sole element which was tweaked.

Another thing that you have to keep in mind with A/B Split Testing is that the choice of customers receiving the versions is random. This way, bias or prejudice will affect the results of the test. Also, an appropriate sample size which is well-calculated is also necessary.

The fact is, A/B Split Testing can be pretty simple. You can even do this by yourself if you have the tools. Speaking of tools, there are many available online. A good example would be Google Analytics.

Steps in Conducting A/B Testing

First: Determine why you need to do an A/B testing. Leer más “How to Increase Your Blog and Website Sales Conversion Rates with A/B Split Testing”
