Search marketing is a popular inbound marketing strategy.

Search influences a purchase enormously.

Up to 72% of buyers start research for a product or service by consulting Google.

Smart SEO marketing guarantees you a steady, ever-increasing flow of traffic, leads, and sales. But to nail it and reap all these benefits you need excellent SEO copywriters. Sadly, most brands trip up when hiring writers. Consequently, they don’t see results.

In this post, I will reveal three common mistakes companies make when hiring an SEO copywriter. Better yet, the post will suggest fixes for the missteps.

Mistake #1: Asking for academic degrees

A significant number of companies require degrees like BA In Communication Science or Creative Writing for writers to join their staff.

But that’s a massive blunder.

Microsoft in June announced a sweeping racial justice plan, including an initiative to spend $150 million on diversity and inclusion programs, and double its number of Black and African American managers and senior employees by 2025 in the U.S.

“We have every confidence that Microsoft’s diversity initiative complies fully with all U.S. employment laws,” Dev Stahlkopf, corporate vice president and general counsel at Microsoft, wrote in a blog post published Tuesday. “We look forward to providing the OFCCP with this information and, if necessary, defending our approach.”

The OFCCP asks Microsoft to “prove that the actions we are taking to improve opportunities are not illegal race-based

Hiring an SEO firm or agency to improve your search engine rankings is not a decision that should be taken lightly. You need to make a thorough research and obtain proposals from a few different agencies before making a decision. You also need to ask some questions on what strategies they will be working and if there is something that does not sounds you right it’s good to look for another agency.

Here are five main points for you to consider before hiring an SEO agency:

  1. Ask for a list of their past and current clients: A reputable SEO company should be open to share a list of their former clients. These references can help you to gauge how effective they are as well as you will know that the person did the specific work on SEO campaigns. Moreover, their clients may not give you a specific analytics, but they

Applying Technology in Hiring

May 1, 2020 | technology | No Comments

Human contact, whether through professional networking, social connections, or by earned reputation still matters significantly and should in no way be minimized when describing the recruitment and hiring process. If anything, it’s paramount. However, another very important track to cover when developing one’s career is the one driven by existing and emerging technologies meant to streamline and optimize the employment process.

Today this ranges from online job boards advertising positions, to Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) that parse resumes for HR and recruiters, and now Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning tools, designed to assess the employability of candidates. How to advantageously position yourself for these digital aides and gatekeepers needs to be a key component of a well-planned career growth strategy. Let’s take a current look at each of these technical features.

Online job boards are not very new, in short supply, or complicated. They are little more than interactive … Read More
