Looking Under the Hood of Your LMS

Most LMSs offer advanced methods “under their hoods” that grant direct access to the LMSs’ data and features. But these methods often get overlooked or written off as too complicated to use. While acronyms like API, LTI, and SSO can seem intimidating at first, once you understand how they work, you’ll wish you’d looked under the hood of your LMS sooner. Using these tools can expand the functionality of your LMS and may even save you the work of switching to a new one.

What Your WordPress Website May be Missing

There is a reason why WordPress powers nearly a quarter of the websites online today. WordPress is easy to use yet powerful enough to manage the largest websites. It is this ease of use, however, that makes too many WordPress websites less successful than they could be. I am a big supporter of do-it-yourself website building. But it pains me to see so much work go into a website only to have the creators’ efforts go unrewarded because important elements of a healthy and successful website are o

A Practical Guide to Social Advertising

With Facebook continuing to tighten its grip on the reach of promotional updates, and other social media platforms sure to follow suit; it is time to be realistic about whether your social media marketing strategy can survive without including at least some social advertising. Digital ad spending surpassed print ad spending in 2013, and is projected to top $100 billion by 2018. And social ads continue to outperform display ads in click through and conversion rates every year.

Changes in Social Marketing - Independent

As the new year begins, major social media networks are, or soon will be, providing some new and some different options. For best results, keep the changes described below in your mind while you develop social media marketing campaigns. Facebook “reach”—in other words, how many of your page’s fans actually see a given update—is determined by the Facebook feed algorithm, which takes into account a number of factors meant to improve a user’s experience on the social network. (To keep up with spec

Putting the Sexy Back in Identity Authentication

In my opinion, if geek is the new sexy, the guys who work on identity authentication protocols are studs. Unfortunately, the only time we hear anything about identity authentication is when our Internet or “digital” security is threatened. Case in point: Heartbleed. And even then, the media seldom turn to the real geeks in the trenches. They tend to cover the more futuristic solutions like eyeball scanners. But what is happening right now on this front? Is there anything we – as average digita

Underrated Tools for Driving Traffic and Improving Discoverability - Independent

Are you tired of reading more “new” tips about the same old social media tools? Me too. So here are some of my favorite underrated online tools that can drive traffic to your Web- site and improve book discoverability. Quora is a crowd-sourced Q&A site that has recently gained a lot of popularity. The idea behind Quora is that members post questions; other members answer those questions, and members then vote on the answers. If a member’s answer is voted up, the member earns a certain number

Mind your own social media business!

Are you as frustrated as I am with the ongoing trend of overgeneralized social media marketing advice? Admittedly, I can get sucked into reading those articles just as easily as the next guy. I can also start freaking out, thinking I am doing it all wrong and should just stop marketing altogether. Then I do a reality check by asking myself: Does this social media “advice” really apply to my business, my goals, or my target audience? Social media marketing may be out of its infancy; but it is still learning to walk. Luckily, the tools have been in use long enough for marketers to get a general f

Keys to Conversion

“Sure, getting discovered [or getting exposure] is great, but how many sales were generated as a result?” That’s the question people consistently asked during my two sessions at IBPA’s 2013 Publishing University, even though the session topics were quite different. One session was about improving a book’s online discoverability using search optimization techniques, and the other was about increasing a book’s online exposure using content marketing tactics.
