Insight24 - YouTube for B2B Podcasts and Video?

Webcasting and rich media producer ON24 is beta testing a new portal / directory site for B2B webcasts, podcasts, corporate videos, and online demos called Insight24. With content in over 30 business and technology categories, Insight24 has been called "YouTube for B2B podcasts, webcasts etc." but the better analogy might be that it's KnowledgeStorm for online audio and video.

Insight24 allows companies to freely upload podcasts, corporate video and other rich media assets into a categorized, searchable directory. It enables businesses to leverage and increase the ROI of their rich media investments, and virtually any type of rich media, from any source (not just ON24 clients) can be uploaded. The site also provides an RSS feed to keep registered users up to date on newly added content.

Although Insight24 is likely to attract some viewers as a destination site, the real value to businesses that take advantage of this will be through exposure on syndication partner websites. That's where the KnowledgeStorm analogy comes in: as KnowledgeStorm provides value to businesses by syndicating white paper and case study content to its 250 or so content partners (including Computerworld, InfoWorld, Informati0nWeek and BusinessWeek), Insight24 will provide a similar service for online video, podcasts and webcast content. This is likely to be the revenue model as well, eventually charging content providers for leads (registrations) generated by the content.

It's an interesting model, and one likely to work well for ON24, provided they are able to lock in high-quality syndication partners. It won't turn the company into the next YouTube, but they may become the KnowledgeStorm, Bitpipe, TechTarget or TechRepublic of rich online media.

AHREFS tops the marketing blunder list of 2018

It’s Early in 2018 and AHREFS tops the marketing blunder list It’s only the first week in February and you are reading about the Metrics/Data supplier that has provided us with fodder by creating a huge marketing blunder, Ahrefs.

Ahrefs is world's biggest third-party database of search queries with refined monthly search volume and research metrics.  Their data is used by untold numbers of digital marketers across the world.  Arguably they are the industry leader in this type of data.  The only thing that they changed was how a tiny item in their metrics was being calculated. 
About a week prior to the effective date of the change, Ahrefs notified users that a change was coming to how they calculated a domain rating or DR.  They also stated that many sites would see their rankings drop.  I agree that a need for change was warranted.  What I don’t agree with how they calculated the change and its ramifications for roughly 75% of all websites.  

This past Friday evening around 11 P.…

Tip #3 to improve your digital marketing

Do Your Research You may have ideas for what is going to work best for your audience based on past experience with your ads, but taking the time to conduct thorough research and have data to support your actions is important. You may anticipate that your customers will behave a certain way, when in fact they go in a completely different direction. It’s essential to be prepared for this ahead of time and use the information you collect from research to planning your marketing strategy. Elliot Simmonds explains this concept below:

“ A lot of people use sponsored posts and other paid advertising, and it seems that many are happy to simply pay the money and watch the views and clicks roll in - even if some of those clicks are from individuals tangential to the product or service they're promoting. Most platforms allow you to specifically target your sponsored posts and ads, and my tip is to do so following a period (even if it's only a short period) of actual research. Your gut i…
