We have seen SEO move toward more content-driven strategies, focused upon providing the client or the customer…

SMG Founder Eric Sachs Quoted by Forbes

Sachs Marketing Group founder Eric Sachs was recently featured in a Forbes article regarding the difference between legitimate marketing and subtle propaganda. Search Engine Watch dubbed 2015 as "Year of the Consumer," suggesting that consumers drive marketing demand and will be quick to take business elsewhere if they see shoddy marketing techniques and sneaky propaganda. To prove legitimacy in the marketing realm, transparency, influence, conscious advertising, and appropriate levels of innuendo are key - both for marketing firms and in-house marketers. Eric highlighted the poor technique of bad-mouthing competitors, explaining that this method only gives competitors free advertising while putting you on…

The Changing Community Management Industry

Community management positions are routinely extended to recent graduates and "social media natives," meaning those who routinely use various social media tools for personal or professional use.

What the community goals and values are? Community managers are responsible for creating a sense of community among the various divisions within the company and to "sell" the vision of community to each user, helping them understand and value the community. To do so, the community manager must understand each…
