If you know the startup ecosystem here in Hamilton, you then know of our own Lion’s Lair Gala competition where startups compete for big money and prizes…and as just last night we celebrated our Lions’ Lair 2013 evening – you know I was there.

As last year, I was actually a contestant in the competition and ended up in the top 10 Finalists, I couldn’t offer up any prizes or sponsorships – but this year my online marketing firm, KKT INTERACTIVE Inc. offered up a full SEO Campaign (a $12k package) to the prize pool as our own contribution to the overall successs of the gala.

Tuesday is Infographic Day this Week!

Filed under: SEO 

hummingbirdBeen jammed, but did find a couple of real winners in the infographic world over the past couple of weeks that I had to save and then share.

Today the first one “up” is this great infographic from the folks over at www.positionly.com and it’s entitled “SEO vs the New SEO!” and yup, it’s well worth the click/thru. How so?

Well, for us the first thing we usually have to tell a client is that what they’ve heard, read and seen bandied about when it comes to SEO tactics is usually old, dated and not so true any more.

kkti-shizzle-2WARNING right up front…the link below will take you to a great funny absolutely great site that uses some pretty cool technology to translater any domain URL into what can only be called “gangsta slang” rap. It DOES have bad words. It MAY offend some viewers. It perhaps should NOT be viewed at work or where others can see your screen.

That said, here’s the link and I found it via a Google+ notice from Ian Lurie an SEO practitioner I love to read and it’s about the funniest thing I’ve ever seen.

First, of course I plugged in my own Canadian SEO site at www.kkti.com and yes, what a hoot!

On the Hunt for Better Online Marketing Counsel?

search-1Okay as our regular readers know, we love what we do! We truly like to get into the office and online every single day and as early as possible, to help our client roster succeed at getting new traffic sent to their sites and we do it over and over again – but always remembering that the search engine target is a moving one….one you need to keep your eye on all the dang time!

That said, we also of course “bump” into all types and kinds of other viewpoints and whenever such opinions (backed up by tested empirical evidence that is) help us learn more, we know that this is also very important counsel and we try to incorporate same into our own online marketing practice on a daily basis.

Google+ Matters for SEO Campaigns, eh!

Filed under: SEO 

g+Okay, like many other online marketing types, I too thought WooHoo when Google launched their own social media platform Google+ a couple of years back – well at least I thought it was a good thing to challenge all of the other social media giants already established like FB and Twitter, Reddit and Tumblr etc…

My thinking over that timespan hasn’t changed and while the jury is still “out” on the value of a G+ account and the resulting buzz, what I know so far is that yes, G+ is becoming more and more important for any SMB and their own online SEO Campaign!

SEO & Infographics: The Legend Lives On!

google_targetOkay, you know that I like SEO, right? Well, love is perhaps a better verb here…and at the same time when an SEO tactic begins to get traction, i.e. using a certain method or process to gain some SEO rankings is something I also love reporting on, right?

If you answered “yes” to those two questions then it’s because you must be a regular visitor here and know that I love the legendary link between SEO and Infographics and have written substantially on that link too before as well.

And that’s what this blog piece is about today….as I’ve now got some tangible proof on the popularity of Infographics and also a great link to an SEO expert and her take on how to promote just that kind of SEO tactic!

google_bizPixWe online types know, that Google has been working hard to improve the way people discover local businesses and to do that they’ve added some pretty cool features that any SMB can take advantage of to promote their business.

One area that is still pretty new and we’d like to feature here is the ability for any business to showcase their actual bricks & mortar venues from the street and right into their front door!

To do that today, I’m going to be using a great local #HamOnt example, our own McMaster Innovation Park and show you what they’ve recently done to showcase their own beautiful premises!

Why Hiring Contractors instead of Employees is Better!

contractorOkay, not to start off a whole war on this topic but just to present what we think is the best way to run our own SEO practice, I thought it perhaps apropos to post on this topic as I now face the normal contractor issue of finding new ones.

Yes, we did just lose a contractor who had been with our Canadian SEO firm KKT INTERACTIVE Inc. for over 3 years…he was a valued important SEO type that I loved working with and I wanted to talk about that search for his replacement.

First, why a contractor over an employee you might want to ask…which is of course a valid POV. Why indeed?

mentorWe have always believed that the primary resource of successful Mentors is their knowledge of the norms, values and procedures of their business channel….and the willingness to pass that along.

It’s said “…it’s not what you know, but who you know…” and what we’re going to post today…is all about the exact opposite…i.e. what you need to know to be a Startup Mentor.
