Finding profitable marketing niches in unexpected places

profitable market niches

I’d like to tell you a story of a weird way I made the most money in my life and how it relates to marketing strategy today. Actually, I made the money for my company … oh how I wish it was for me!

One of the best jobs I ever had was global marketing director for Alcoa’s packaging division. Part of my job was to come up with new ways to use aluminum (or “aluminium”) for packaging applications. The aluminum bottle, the Coors can that turns blue when it’s cold, embossed packaging, and many other ideas came out of our efforts.

But my most successful and profitable innovation is probably the least-sexy one of all.

Understanding How External Factors Can Impact Your Email Campaigns

As seen on:

Last month we were at this year’s Festival of Marketing event in London along with 3,000 other leading marketers to discuss what we can expect from the future of our industry. The event itself is a great initiative, and I was delighted to have been invited to speak on the Data & Analytics stage—discussing the myriad ways in which external factors can have an impact on email campaigns.

It’ll be no surprise to most marketers to learn that consumers aren’t reading all the emails they receive from brands—the average consumer receives upwards of 500 marketing messages every month, and will open fewer than 1 in 15 (so around 7%).

What’s more, though, is that when you’re sending an email you’re not just competing for share of market or share of wallet, but also for share of mind. If a consumer is only opening 1 in 15 marketing emails, then as a sender you’re competing for that read time, too. Put simply, time spen…

Why The Google Buy Button is Awesome for Affiliates

As seen on:

Someone asked me the other week about the Google Buy button and how it’s may impact affiliate marketing.  Although nobody can say exactly how it will impact it, the Google Buy button could really help value adding affiliates, potentially remove some of the poaching that low value partners may take credit for.  It could also help to drive more conversions for high value partners that introduce and re-introduce customers to a merchant’s store.

Before I get into this post, I want people to stop hitting the panic button and actually evaluate the potential impact (as of now) of the Google Buy button.  From what I can see, there is no threat to affiliate marketing.  If you take a couple minutes to read the short announcement from Google instead of reading the random posts about it, you’ll see that it will probably help the affiliate channel, not hurt it.

Here’s the post from the tech show where Google made the announcement so you can read for your…

Why Your SEO Campaign Will Fail

As seen on:

I would like to thank you for joining me on another one of my cool series. Over the last several months we’ve been looking at several factors that contribute to a successful SEO campaign. We explored factors like link building, authority blogging, high quality content, etc. However, with every plus side there’s always a negative so I want to explore some different elements this time around. For example, I feel in order for you to perform an optimal SEO campaign you have to know the elements to focus on and those to disregard. If your an experienced blogger or one getting started then this information will be very helpful to you.

This will be a “7” part series where I’ll be going over the fundamental factors why some SEO campaigns are a success and others simply fail before they get started.
