Here are a few of the directions I see the interwebs going in terms of business.
1. More BIG internet media and content publishing companies. Refinery29, DailyCandy, Thrillist, Huffington Post, etc. Already sites dominating in the huge mass-markets like news and fashion and health, etc. I think there is big opportunity in creating "big" content sites serving smaller, more targeted audiences.
2. More people realizing email beats social media any day of the week. Many big internet companies are shifting their focus heavily toward the inbox.
3. More people realizing SEO is dead. Darnell Jackson says "SEO stands for Sexy Entertaining Outrageous." I agree.
SEO now stands for Sexy Entertaining Outrageous.
Did you hear the story of the new Linux powered machine gun?
I don’t care what side of the gun rights debate you’re on you have to admit this sounds cool. Who wouldn’t want to read more about this new open-sourced-software machine gun technology?
Google understands this and I predict they will continue to send their dangerous SEO animals like Panda and Penguin to scare off the BLAND in favor of high quality content that’s packed with FLAVOR.
How to make your content more sexy, entertaining, and outrageous?
Get off the sidelines when it’s controversial ie GAME time. I wish I could tell you how stupid your updates on twitter look when there’s an amazingly huge international story trending. Here you are posting “5 ways to build back links.” Who do you think want’s to read that BS, now?
All of this is CENTRAL to the new project we're starting in the men's lifestyle/dating space.
More soon... maybe.
Finally, I am probably taking my book down off of amazon next month. I came up with a much better way to use the contents of the book... If you've been on the fence, now might be a good time to pick up your copy. It's under five bucks.
