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.

Mejorar la vinculación de cuentas de Analytics y AdWords


Vía
Central de ConversionesEl Blog oficial de las herramientas de medición de Google

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. Anteriormente, vincular las cuentas implicaba varios pasos en muchas páginas dispersas entre dos productos, y este proceso ahora se ha consolidado en unos cuantos pasos en un asistente de vinculación.

Una vez que el nuevo proceso de vinculación se lance en todas las cuentas de Analytics en las semanas venideras, podrás crear vínculos adicionales desde la sección de Administración de tu cuenta de Analytics. (Si iniciaste sesión en tu cuenta de AdWords, también puedes vincular las cuentas al ir a Tools and Analysis > Google Analytics [Herramientas y análisis > Google Analytics] y seguir estas mismas instrucciones). Solo haz clic en AdWords Linking (Vinculación de AdWords) en la columna Account (Cuenta) y luego haz clic en el botón New link (Vínculo nuevo) para iniciar el asistente de vinculación.

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
