Latest News Headlines - What Should Yours Say?


Are people reading your headlines in your latest news / blog? How can you be sure? You want a great headline that really captures your audience - that's what we all want!

In this article David Ogilvy famously said, “On average, only 1 out of 5 readers gets beyond your headline.” Make sure your article solves a problem for your audience. What does your audience need? What problem are you addressing? One of the keys to a great latest news post is creating content that achieves a goal.

Need some direction? Not sure where to start? Don't know what to talk about? On our monthly marketing system calls we always start with your customer questions. It's so important. Listening to your customer can make or break the future direction of your company/organization. Give your audience the answers they are looking for. "In other words, 'They ask, you answer.'"

If you find yourself needing help getting your latest news feed off the ground or want someone to help maintain your blog providing insightful content that makes sense and speaks to your audience, connect with Michael Given (941) 500-4530.

Content Strategy - Do You Have One?

Mar03_Inspirational“Content Strategy” has become a buzz phrase in our industry. It’s what all the cool kids are talking about with their clients. Don’t get us wrong…we’ve been talking a lot to our new clients and current clients about their content strategy.

The truth is - traditionally websites have been a digital dumping ground for content. Meaning - everything you have ever written, gathered, thought, heard, said has made it to a page on your website - somewhere.

But the question is and should be - Is that content achieving any of your goals? Is it providing a solution to your client? If the answer is no - it may be time for a change.

    If you are sitting down to take a serious look at the content on your website, consider:
  • What does your client need/expect from you?
  • What is the purpose of the content?
  • Who is the content for?

Make sure you are providing clarity, being a solution to their problem, informing them of buying decisions, and directing change - whatever that change means to your business.

If you start there - the whole idea of “content strategy” can work for your business, no matter the size.

Michael Given Weighs in on Selfies as Passwords

Michael Given recently sat down with Sarasota’s own Joes Panek with "What’s Up, Joey?” to discuss the future of selfies as passwords. What does Michael Given and Kim Kardashian have in common?! Why, selfies! of course.

The future of digital security may be facial recognition technology - is it for you? Selfies may be the new password - what do you think about that? You maybe saying - this isn’t for me. But as Michael points out, Facebook is already using this technology. So, it looks like it’s here to stay.

The bottom line is… “Selfies are back!”

“If Evernote Was a Person, I’d Give it a Hug"


Our feature of the month is our beloved app: Evernote. Evernote has the ability to change how you do business - really it does! In this article, Evernote teaches you how to “Achieve Your Most Successful Year Yet”…who doesn’t want that?! If you do not know how to get the most out of Evernote, make sure you read the article, it’s full of great tips.

Although everyone on team Karma uses Evernote differently, we all recognize the power of the tool. In a digital world, what’s better than an app that’s able to “store ideas, notes, web clips, receipts, recipes, important documents, event details, and more.” It’s so true - "using Evernote on every device and it’s a tool that is flexible and incredibly powerful to use as to structure all your goals this year."

Don’t give up on those 2015 goals yet. There is still time to get organized, get focused, and win (using Evernote).

Monthly Marketing System - Does It Make Sense for Your Business?

Monthly Marketing System

If you are sitting there thinking to yourself, "How do I create content that will help me grow my business, make more money and allow me to have more free time?” Then the Karma Marketing + Media monthly marketing system is right for you.

How does it work? Karma Marketing + Media connects with you monthly to determine what’s happening with your business? As a business owner, manager, or company leader, you have to be looking toward something. We just need to talk about what that is - maybe it’s something like a company vision, a soft spot in your business cycle that needs to be fixed, a new product, new service/offerings. Maybe you are a business that follows a seasonal calendar - or functions around calendar holidays. What is coming up for you? What excites you? And what do you want future/potential clients to know about you? There’s something happening and we'll get to the bottom of things.

We all can agree the economy is getting better. We’re all getting more business. We’re all getting busier. But the truth is we all need to take a breath and think about our own business, and be able to communicate that to your virtual marketing department, which is us.

We want you to be successful. Really successful. Start 2015 off right and begin the marketing system that will change the direction of the business. Michael Given (941) 500-4530 for details or more information how how a Monthly Marketing Package can change your business and free up some of your valuable time.

Karma Block Hours - Why Would You Need Them?


Great question! Do you want access to a Graphic Designer? A Copy-righter? A Website Developer? A Social Media Expert? One-on-one time with Michael Given? Karma Marketing + Media Block Hours can be used for any and all combinations of the above Karma experts. Maybe you don’t know what you need - that’s ok too. Purchase the Block Hours now and use them any time in the future.

Monthly Marketing System members - Block Hours are used in combination of the plan to enhance our marketing efforts.

If you need more hours than my plan allows for custom graphics, further web development, etc. we suggest purchasing and utilizing some block hours. We’ve had some pretty decent success with just ten hour packages of block hours or twenty hour packages that can get used above and beyond the marketing plan, or the monthly marketing packages. So let’s say you’re on the $750 plan, but you want some additional website changes. Well then that ten hours that you have pre-purchased can just be used for whatever it is you need done with the website.

Block Hours can be used in situations where more print or product related artwork is desired as well. Utilizing Block Hours for access to your own graphic designer (graphic design services) - may not be in the plan that you've chosen, so Block Hours supplement the artwork time. This also works for any types of services that aren’t in the plan that you initially selected.

If you would like to make some small (or not so small) changes to your website, marketing, logo, social media voice - then purchase Karma Block Hours and let us take care of the rest.

Block Hours are purchased in blocks of 10 hours. Now until January 15, 2015, Karma Block Hours will be only $90 per hour! Purchase your Block Hours today and be ready to hit the ground running in 2015. Call Michael Given (941) 500-4530 for details or to reserve your hours.

How Does Karma Do It? How Do We Generate Content About YOUR Business?


Generating marketing content specifically for your business is easier than you think.

Here is a little about our process:
When we connect on our monthly marketing call, the call is recorded.

"Why do you record our calls?", you may ask.

Because that is how we have hacked the system to get your ideas, thoughts, and words into content that can be used to successfully market your business. This saves you a TON of time by not having to actually write copy. The copy is created as quickly as you can talk about your services, products, specials, events, product features, etc.

During your call, we ask strategic questions that get to the heart of what you want to focus on for marketing your business. After the call, it goes straight to transcription and then we kick that transcription over to our copywriter for editing.

The content from our monthly calls is edited and crafted for your marketing channels:
  • Website Blog / Latest News (up to 5/mth)
  • Website Content Updates (FAQ's, New Pages)
  • Social Media Messaging (Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest)
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Constant Contact E-Blast Design & Mailings

This provides consistent messaging provides useful and engaging content for your potential and current customers.

If you would like more information on how this actually works, and if it works, connect with Michael (941) 500-4530 for more information.
