Weekly Marketing Skinny • October 18, 2014

Posted on the 18 October 2014 by Ana Hoffman @AnaTrafficCafe

Don’t have the time to read all the marketing news, blog posts, announcements, and other content related to SEO/social media/online marketing published each week?

I’ve got you covered.

I sift through trillions (well, hundreds) of online publications to stay on top of marketing news that might affect your online business.

Let’s start with the news from Traffic Generation Café.


In case you missed the LIVE “Survey Funnel” training Ryan Levesque and I did this week, where Ryan taught his “Survey Funnel Formula” below:

…here’s the REPLAY of what you missed out on:

IMPORTANT: The replay of the training Ryan and I did will ONLY be up until Sunday, October 19th at 11:59PM PST

So if you’re interested (or even just curious) in seeing the funnel he’s been using to generate 2.8 million leads and 175K customers in 17 non-IM markets over the past 23 months…

Here’s the link one last time:

If you’re like the close to 100 people we had on the live call… I think you’re going to love this training.

It’s worth checking out the webinar JUST so you can get free access to the one-page flowchart Ryan and his team use to document his entire funnel from start to finish… If nothing else, you should download this flowchart.


Moz 2014 Local Search Ranking Factors Results are out.

Is your site mobile-friendly? If it isn’t, Google will now say so to mobile users in search results.

By the way, you should share this post right now before you forget – much appreciated!

Social Media

You can now listen to podcasts, music and other types of audio content on Twitter via Twitter’s new Audio Cards.

It’s official: Twitter will now show you tweets from people you don’t follow.

Facebook delivers a billion more desktop video views than YouTube in August… and here’s why it’s less than impressive.

Facebook has introduced Safety Check – a simple and easy way to say you’re safe and check on others.

Facebook now has stickers. Stickers for leaving comments on posts. Instead of using words. I think my IQ has just dropped about 30 points…

New on Google+: Set up +Post Ads campaigns directly from Google+.
