Content Marketing

Community Marketing
People follow links.
Search engines follow links.
Connect your content to get found and build authority.

Tour Guide Press is a toolbox used to create, display, and connect ideas, information, and people. It is a business development platform to attract and deal with customers, and build brand awareness & authority. It is also a place to learn about and perform important marketing tasks, and to outsource work without breaking your budget.

Web Publishing is Good for YouVery few people make a purchase decision the first time they discover information about a company, product or service.

It is imperative to develop a content and relationship building sales funnel with a variety of ways to get your message in front of people,  keep their attention, and to convert the all-important Call-to-Action (which can be anything from social shares, to newsletter signups, to booking orders, or getting real testimonials, reviews and referrals)

Hosted BlogWebsite plans include proven solutions to attract an audience, develop relationships, and convert visitors into customers. Directory Listings include advanced features to boost brand SEO; Social Bookmarks, Events Calendar, and Job Board work to engage people and generate data signals for search engines.   

Topic CollectionsKnowledge Base, and Solution articles offer info and ideas. Forums are great for exploring and discussing what you might want to do and how to do it. The Marketplace is where you can hire help; and a Referral Rewards system brings it all together.

Community networking attracts attention to your brand or offer, builds name recognition, improves communication, and influences opinions. Marketing tasks become more effective, more affordable, and easier to manage.

How It Works
Authority Building

Community Marketing
Your Target Audience Deserves Respect
Trust Factors Are More Important Than Ever

The new paradigm of internet marketing is to continuously work to improve your Expertise, Authority, and Trustworthiness (E-A-T) score so that your Brand will be more visible and attractive to prospective customers, and to make sure existing customers don't forget about you and that they refer people to your business.

Because people and search engines are interested in solutions to problems and/or answers to questions, carefully crafted content marketing and social connections can boost 'data relationships' and 'authority signals'.

Search engines use these factors (and many others) to determine search results. And even more importantly, "mentions" help people discover and understand what you're about and whether or not they want to do business with you.  

Eric Schmidt, Google CEO

Authority Requires Certainty

By connecting brand identity with verified location (GMB, maps) and real author personas (social profiles & activity), together with niche relevant Engagement (comments, forums, solution articles, etc) - customers respond, and search engines reward you by showing information to interested people.

Crowd Marketing

Community Marketing

Know any influencers or thought leaders?
Want to be one?

Passive citations are good. Active engagement is a heck of a lot better.

Members are encouraged to comment, share, link, and promote each other to build authority and relevance for social profiles, content, and web properties. Generous referral rewards provide added impetus to take action.

Your existing and potential customers are prompted to read and create reviews and testimonials on the network and other authority sites.  Real reviews from Facebook, Yelp, Tripadvisor, and Google can be displayed in Directory listings and hosted Websites/Tier 1 Blogs.

Want to be an Authority in You Niche?
Stop Talking So Much About Yourself

Target audience Intent and Interests should be your marketing priority and it is worth the time and effort to figure out how to develop content and communications that are compatible with what people want.

The Community Network provides an endless supply of relevant and interesting "things to talk about" that engage your audience and connects your brand identity to "things that matter".

For Example: In your social media accounts you could refer to your community blog post that explores how your peers (different type company in your geographic location or similar company in different location) do something interesting that customers like, or makes managing things easier, or exhibits good corporate social responsibility.

Take it up a notch and Social Bookmark your post and then share that bookmark - which shows up in your profile Activity, that gets indexed and tracked by Google.

Community NetworkYou now have something new and different to show your current audience, that they will share, which in turn establishes user engagement 'data points' mentioning your brandlocation, niche, and solution to a problem (this is the Marketing/SEO holy grail).

This means that you can not just boost the authority of your original content and attract more visitor traffic to it, but you can also boost the SEO value of the links discussing it. This create a much bigger footprint of positive engagement and trust. And it takes less than a minute.

Website/Tier 1 Blog posts can be scheduled for automatic syndication across multiple social profile accounts, and social content can be displayed on your blog.

Socialized content attracts a much wider audience and strengthens search authority. Diversified messaging is part of a larger sales funnel directing your target customers to the point of sale. Leveraging the same content in different (appropriate) places has a multiplier effect.

Want Authority? Storytelling is a content trend that both people and search engines show interest in. Talk about what you like about other leading Brands. Indicate Location info. Be clear about the relevant Niche. Focus on reader Intent - identify what problem they are trying to answer, and where the solution can be found. Stay Active.
