Instagram Releases Much-Requested Feature

Good news this week for those that handle multiple Instagram accounts, the photo-sharing service has announced that users can now toggle between multiple accounts within the app, without having to log out of one and log into another.  This is a feature that Instagram users have been clamoring for, for quite some time, and starting Monday morning, users already have been able to see that feature.

This is particularly exciting news for small business owners that now have the ability to quickly switch between their business’ account and their personal accounts, not to mention social media managers out there who have long struggled with handling the log in and log out process for several Instagram accounts.  The update, which is version 7.15 for the app, allows up to five separate accounts.

For more information on how to get multiple accounts set up for yourself, check out Buffer’s article here.  And, be sure to follow Robintek on Instagram!

Industry News: SEO

You Keep Saying SEO – What Does That Mean?

SEO is a hot term in the marketing world today, and it seems like it’s one of those things you need, even if you aren’t exactly sure why. In the digital marketing realm, SEO is the cornerstone to any good strategy for businesses of all shapes and sizes.

First things first, what does it stand for? SEO is search engine optimization. We can almost hear you saying to yourself, “great, I’m still not sure what that means.” Search engine optimization is the practice of ensuring that a website can be found on search engines, by “baking in” relevant words and phrases for your business, as well as generating new content for the site (blog, updated FAQs) and having links to your company social media channels.

Why is this important? If you’ve put forth the effort to have a great looking website, the objective is to have as many eyeballs see it as possible, and for that to happen, the effort to make it optimized for Google (and Bing, Yahoo, etc.) needs as much attention and care as the aesthetics of your website itself. It doesn’t stop there though, as there are directories out there everywhere (YP.com, WhitePages, CitySearch, etc.) can list your business under specific categories, and having accurate name, address, phone number, and URL information (NAPU) is very important.

Google is the Goliath of the search engine realm, so any SEO efforts need to be made with them in mind first. What does Google want to see in order for your site to come up as highly as possible? Things like the title of the webpage, the meta description, and the headers need to be “keyword-rich” with the most relevant terms that users will type into a search engine to find your type of business. For example, if you have an antique shop, terms like “antique” and “vintage” should appear frequently.

Going beyond the keywords and phrases that will help your website get found, it’s not enough to just do those things once and leave it be. Google rewards sites that are constantly generating new content, whether that is in the form of a blog, or updating a frequently asked questions page, or even frequent posts to your social media channels. Reviews are ever increasing in popularity and importance to search engines. Google business pages now prominently display star ratings based on the reviews they’ve received.

As if that is not enough, Google also looks favorably on websites that are responsive to mobile devices, meaning they will shrink and reshape themselves on the screen of a phone or tablet, without sacrificing the integrity of the site and its content (not to mention, making sure you can still read it!)

Still not convinced as to why SEO is important for your website? Consider these numbers, courtesy of Paper.li and Forbes:

  • 97% of consumers now search for local businesses online
  • 78% of small businesses get at least a quarter of their new customers via social media
  • 75% of users do not scroll past the first page of search results
  • Over 82% of internet users use search

Robintek has the expertise to help with all these things, from redesigning your website to be sure it is properly optimized to feeding your business’ accurate NAPU info to over 75 directories in one fell swoop. The process might seem overwhelming, so let us know how we can be of service to you!

“Uniform and logo designs are usually attributed to faceless corporations or leagues. You know the usual sound bites: “Nike designed these uniforms,” or “The NFL created this logo.” It’s rare that the specific people involved in a sports design project are identified, and rarer still that those people are made available to discuss their work.”


20 Actionable Tips to Build a Winning Visual Brand Identity

Here are some useful tips to keep in mind when trying to build a visual brand identity. More at Canva.com.

“Your brand identity is defined by how your audience perceives you. A long-standing analogy is to view your brand as a person. Let’s take it one step further and view your brand as a friend to your audience. And, instead of seeing your audience as a nameless, faceless crowd, focus on the one, ideal person that you’re targeting, or befriending, with your brand.”
