The Other Side of the Google – Google Tools

0

When most of us think of Google, we tend to focus almost exclusively on the Google search engine. If we are bloggers or online marketers one of our primary concerns is optimizing our websites to rank high in the Google search results in order to drive more and more traffic to our websites and blogs. You should be aware though that Google has a wealth of inbound marketing tools, that largely go unnoticed, that can help you drive more traffic to your sites for both free and paid marketing. I’m talking about tools like Google Adwords, Google Places, Google News, Google Reader, Google Alerts, the Google+ Social Network, Google Analytics, and Google Docs to name a few. We will briefly examine a few of them here.

In my opinion, Google Places definitely gives you the most bang for your buck, especially since it’s FREE! It is one of the easiest ways to get your business listed on the first page of Google when people in your local area search for your type of business. Google Places will get your business found on both Google Search and Google Maps. Let’s face it, most people would be more comfortable doing business with someone in their local area than they would with someone in another state or country. You often hear that people tend to do business with those they know, like, and trust. Nothing develops trust like face-to-face contact. I think if you aren’t using this, it could be a real boon for your business. Just go to google.com/places to create your Google Places listing. Be sure to optimize it for the keywords you want people to use to find you. You should enhance your listing by adding images and videos so as to help capture your audience’s attention. You also want to be sure to provide links to your website and current contact information.

Google Adwords is the vehicle for paid advertising where you can purchase Pay-per-Click (PPC) ads. These are the ads that show up on the right-hand side, and sometimes in a shaded area at the top, of the Google Search Results page. These are known as Sponsored Links. These ads also show up on many other websites via the Google Display Network through the use of Contextual Targeting. Contextual Targeting uses your keywords and themes to find the best placements for your ads across the GDN. For example, if you are marketing vitamins, your ad can show up on certain health and wellness sites. Adwords actually has a Context Targeting Tool that allows you to create ad groups based on the keywords you enter. When it comes to the Sponsored Links, because there is so much competition for the top spots, you need to be smart about picking your keywords so that you can rank higher in the ad placement order than your competitors. Adwords has a Google Keywords Tool that can help you create a thorough keyword research strategy. You can use Google Keywords whether you are using paid (Adwords) or free marketing. There isn’t nearly enough time to adequately describe Adwords and paid strategies. You really should educate yourself about paid strategies like PPC before embarking on this type of marketing, as it could get pretty expensive if you are not careful. You should also know that about 75% of searchers will click on the organic (free) search results and only 25% of online searchers will click on the paid ads.

Google Analytics is one of a number of Google tracking tools. This one is for websites and basically provides you with a wealth of information about the visitors to your website, where they came from, how long they stayed on your site, and what actions they took while there. This also is a free service. It can provide the data you need to measure the effectiveness of your ads, capture pages, and other marketing efforts so that you can tweak your marketing to improve sales and conversions. Other tracking tools includes Adword’s Conversion Tracking and Conversion Optimizer. Conversion Tracking shows you which visitors to your site actually performed the desired actions. The Conversion Optimizer uses the Conversion Tracking data to adjust your ad placements on the Google Display Network to get your more profitable clicks at a lower cost.

Google News and Google Alerts are basically used by marketers to generate content ideas. Google News allows you to stay on top of the latest information about your industry, so that you can take advantage of the newness of the information to write a blog post about it before your competitors. Similarly, with Google Alerts you can be instantly alerted about news and messages related to keywords that interest you. So instead of monitoring Google News, you can be alerted when something that interests you comes across the wire. You can filter the alerts to limit them to the type of content you’re interested in, for example, news articles, videos, blog posts, etc. You can also get them in a daily or weekly digest if you prefer. Google Reader is similar in that it can be used to generate content ideas. You can use it to subscribe to websites, blogs, and RSS feeds so that you can stay on top of industry happenings.

Google+ aka Google Plus is a relatively new social network that can drive both search engine and social media traffic to your site. You can set up any number of circles on your profile for different categories of associates, and share content with the whole circle or select individuals within the circle on a message by message basis. Another thing you can do to increase traffic to your site is to install the +1 Button on your website. Similar to the Facebook Like Button, this button allows you to easily share links and promote results in the Google organic search results. Research of over 5,000 sites has shown that you are 3.5 times more likely to receive traffic if you have the +1 Button installed on your site. There are now also Google+ Business Pages that are relatively simple to create. Google+ Business Pages will allow you to better develop relationships with prospects and customers. There is also evidence to suggest your Business page will be more apt to show up in the Google search results, and just like any other page, you should optimize it as best you can. Google also created a Direct Connection integration between Google+ and the search engine, so that all anyone has to do is put a plus sign (+) in front of your business name in the search window, and Google will skip over the traditional search results page and go directly to your Google+ Business Page.

Again this is just a taste of what is available out in the Google universe. If you think any of these tools could help in your marketing, you owe it to yourself to do a deep dive on the tools of your choice to get more information. This is especially true if you are considering paid marketing. One thing is true when it comes to getting traffic from Google is that you will pay one way or the other to get listed. You can pay cash directly to get immediate results in the form of paid ads in the Sponsored Links and on the Google Display Network. Or you can pay with the time that it takes to create content and optimize your website or blog to be listed in the organic or free search results. Paid marketing strategies are a short-term solution that yield immediate results. Search Engine Optimizing your site for free traffic is a more long-term strategy as you can conceivably receive traffic forever organically, whereas paid marketing can only generate traffic for you as long as your budget for the marketing campaign allows. Once you stop paying, the traffic dries up. Which ever way you decide to go, I hope that this information can help you pick the right tools.

Too Many Employees to Make Any Money

0

Employees cost money. With high wages, insurance for them and the rising taxes and most importantly, with the drastically reduced reimbursement from insurance companies for services, one must keep the number of employees at the lowest possible level.

Or does one?

Only if you want to stay poor, despite being a doctor, and want to overwork yourself, have rarely time for family and if you want to worry about the money you are not making in case you do go on vacation.
Only if you want a stressful life and want all life’s enjoyments drained out of your life.
Only if your premature aging means nothing to you
Only if you are suicidal.

But if you want to realize the dreams you had when entering med school and opening your practice, then you better listen well to what I have to say.

What I say is not mainstream, but let’s face it, mainstream management of any private health care professional means working till 100 because of lack of money.

It means worrying about making payroll and not enjoying the so needed and wanted vacations and then having to catch up with making money, bills and work when coming back.

Even if the situation described above is a bit milder for you personally, doctors are seldom coming close to their original dreams.

So what to do? Am I suggesting that even though you have payroll problems I want you to hire more?

You bet I am.

But never mind what I want you to do or any other guy wants you to do.

Just start looking at life and start really observing what is going on.

Newton did not invent the Law of Gravity – he only observed it. No more than I am asking you to observe that more employees opposed to less is the answer in most (probably all) cases.

People, and only people, have life in them. And only life can help you to get a life. No machinery and no medicine can keep people alive without people administering and controlling them. Hell, it was people who invented any machinery and any gadget, not machines.

People and only people is the answer.

Let me tell you an all too common money-draining situation in just about all practices.

There are enough people to service the existing patients. That is if all employees are at work, if nobody is sick or on vacation and if all employees are at their best.

All the above rarely happens. There always is an emergency of some kind, which requires extra work and other regular work has to be put off for a bit. There are many, many days of sickness amongst the employees, and people quitting or getting fired usually puts a hold on patients’ service at least, if not also putting a stop on income producing activities such as treatment plan selling, delivering, billing, etc.

The stress and the lost money, which such a situation creates, is grave enough for it to be not ignored and to make some changes.

But what I have to say next should make you start to hire so fast, like there is no tomorrow.
Because there really is no tomorrow if you don’t – at least not the tomorrow you envisioned when opening your practice.

Even if there are enough people to serve all your patients well all the time, they only serve the patients you have.

What about getting more patients? Are you trying to get large numbers of new patients with a few flyers every so often, a yellow page ad, a recall system that reaches most patients only once a year, having lunch with a few doctors here and there?

If the creation of new patients and existing patients coming back is not handled with the same professionalism and the same tenacity as running the medical part of the practice, one will of course have continuous money problems.

So, even if you can hardly make payroll, hiring more employees, not less, usually is the solution.

Of course, the new employees must be treated as if they work for a completely different company – the marketing company.

If you simply hire more employees and put them into the practice, you can be assured that you will get no increase in production but only in payroll.

Even if you keep the new employees separate as a new company or at least a new division, then you still must know the fundamental basics of marketing which are as sound as the Law of Gravity.

You also must know how to organize and give orders, so that the job gets done.
A few examples of a wrong order would be:

The target is $ 100,000 this month.
Or
Let’s be friendly and professional.
Or
Let’s work hard.
Or
Let’s give it all.
Or
Let’s ask for referrals.
Or
Let’s get in some new patients.

Sound familiar? Gets nothing done. Not possible. Not executable.

Anyhow, where and how to market as well as how to get the job done by giving executable orders is too long for this issue and is available in several different directives I have written.

Hmm, perhaps, I have just asked you to forget everything you have ever learned about practice management and to defy the basic standing order of a penny saved is a penny earned. A penny saved is NOT a penny earned – it well could be $ 10 dollars lost.

And if I have talked no sense then keep in mind that all the sensible management advice from all those experts has made just about all doctors work harder and harder with less and less income.

So, the choice is yours: Do what is taught by all the authorities and do what all docs do, and be overworked and broke – or take a deep breath and do what I asked you to do.

Be normal, and get what is normal (stress and little money) or be un-normal and get what those people usually get: Amazon.com success, Starbucks popularity, or having 3-6 practices with 20 doctors working in it and all the time in the world to spend the gargantuan monies you will make despite not being in the practice.

When you are ready to be un-normal, give us a call.

Best Alternatives to iOS Maps

0

The Apple-Google tussle during the launch of iOS 6 had created quite a buzz. The result was Apple launched its latest operating system without built-in Google Maps. Apple came up with its own Maps called Mapplegate and launched iOS 6. However, the decision to go along on maps didn’t work in Apple’s favor forcing Apple Inc. CEO Tim Cook to offer a rare public apology.

Since the in-built maps app has several inherent problems, looking out for alternatives is essential. As a daily commuter or a regular driver, installing a functional app is essential. Fortunately there are several alternatives to the in-built maps app. Furthermore, the good news is that Google has also launched Google Maps for iOS 6 as a standalone app.

5 Best Alternatives to iOS Maps

Google Maps:

Google Maps has always emerged as the best app in this category and this time it comes as a standalone app competing with the existing iOS in-built map app. The result of the break out with Apple has been that the new Google Maps app is much better than what was available on Apple earlier. Google Maps has enabled voice navigation, gives out bike routes and has enabled caching map for offline use too. Google Maps can be freely downloaded.

Garmin StreetPilot Onboard U.S.A:

Garmin has been the world leader in GPS navigation for a long time and quite naturally the app is power-packed with great features. The features include photoReal images of complex junctions, 3D mapping of buildings with lane guidance, speed alerts etc. The app also has a voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions of important junctions. It is also a pedestrian-friendly app. The upgraded version costs $ 37.99.

MapQuest:

The MapQuest app for iOS has been made by AOL and can be freely downloaded. Using the app, you get voice-direction on upcoming lanes, turns etc. You can also find the cheapest gas prices in nearby locations and get the traffic updates via the Live Traffic Cameras. You can also use MapQuest to find nearby restaurants, hotels, airports, parking garages etc. On the downside, the app isn’t ‘Retina-ready’ thus making images pixelated and blurry.

Waze:

Waze works more as a community-based application where users can feed in live traffic updates. Waze is a fun-filled free application using which you can give live updates on where you are currently located you and meet up with friends easily and quickly. During emergencies you can also report accidents and hazards. The app also works well as a voice-guided navigation tool.

vTransit:

If you are a public transport commuter and want regular updates on bus, train timings, vTransit will work just fine for you. Priced at $ .99, the data shown on vTransit comes directly from Google Maps. It thus comes with the assurance that the routes are accurately shown. For a daily commuter, all possible routes to a particular destination is highlighted in the app. The app can be used both in iPhones and iPads.

EBay Alternative Site Tips! Expanding Beyond EBay

0

There is no question that eBay is the biggest online auction game in town, but are there viable eBay alternative sites for sellers? Over the past several years, changing eBay policies and increasing seller fees have produced a rising degree of anger and frustration among sellers. The result is that many have found other selling alternatives, some have given up altogether, and ever greater numbers of sellers consider taking their business to other auction and ecommerce marketplaces. My own research shows that regardless of the ill feeling, eBay continues to thrive and new sellers continue to flock to eBay trying their hand at auction success. If you are one of the dissatisfied, or merely wanting to expand your selling options, this article will attempt to point you in the direction of some of the alternatives.

It is important at the outset to keep in mind that not all marketplaces are the same and do not behave in the same way. The various sorts of venues available to you will each have their own characteristics, and you will find that not all products will do equally well in all selling environments. For example, a site which primarily deals art and craft goods may not be the best place to list auto parts. Thus, one market place may have certain biases that favor some products over others. My point is that although there are alternatives, it may take a bit of trial and error in order to make the site work for you.

If you want to branch out from eBay, there are many, many options such as selling goods from your own online ecommerce store that you run from your private hosting. However, since you are selling on eBay, you may prefer options that do not require you to have your own hosting. Personally, I really like the privately hosted ecommerce option, but that is a very different business model. Your options include auction and non-auction sites. Non-auction alternatives will ideally have a substantial traffic flow, have a substantial marketplace, and include a free means of either listing your items or building an online store. Another option that appears to work will for certain product categories is classified ad sites, such as Craig’s List.

If you plan on replacing eBay, then ideally you will want a site with as much buyer traffic, name recognition, and reach as eBay plus lower fees plus a management more attentive to the needs of sellers. To my knowledge there is no other auction site that gets as much traffic as eBay and commands as much market share. The only market environment that competes with eBay for traffic, revenue, and name recognition is Amazon.com. According to my own research, Amazon’s seller fees are much lower than eBay, but it is also a much different kind of marketplace. If you haven’t considered Amazon before, go see for yourself. The link to the merchant program is at the bottom of the page. I have no direct experience with management behavior towards its merchants, though it is reputed to be more sympathetic than eBay.

Google Product Search (http://www.google.com/products) is another market to consider. You can find details and instructions on how to list your products at http://www.google.com/intl/en_us/products/submit.html. Listing is free, and it is up to you to promote your listings. Although the shopping traffic may not be as great as eBay, it is Google, after all, one of the most highly trafficked sites in the world. And speaking of Google Product Search, you may want to check out Bluejay.com. This is another non-auction venue. Again, not as substantial as eBay but not to be ignored, either. Bluejay provides its own marketplace plus access to its online site builder for no cost. However, Bluejay also submits your listing to Google Product Search, which is an added punch. One more player in the field is eCrater.com. ECrater is big enough to provide its own marketplace, and it, too, includes a free site builder, and allows you to import all of your eBay products into your store.

In the event you are only interested in selling your goods through online auctions, you still face the problems of traffic and marketplace discussed above. Fortunately, there are options! One viable marketplace is Overstock.com. You may think of Overstock as primarily a vendor, but Overstock also hosts an auction environment at http://auctions.overstock.com. Put this on your “Must Check Out” list, because even though Overstock isn’t as big as Amazon and eBay, it is still huge. Another site that should be on your shortlist is Ubid.com, which claims to have over 5 million members. Ubid is another huge thriving online auction site. Keep in mind that no other site has the traffic of eBay, but escaping eBay’s fees may require that your “retool” your business model a bit.
