So, here’s a few common misconceptions that you might keep in mind when looking for an online marketing agency that would be a good fit for your organization…Myth 1.  Social Media Marketing Companies only work with Social Media:Most GOOD social media marketing companies are shifting more and more to becoming full service inbound marketing agencies. The shift is mainly driven by the need to demonstrate clear ROI from social media efforts. And to get conversions from these efforts you typically must continue to track traffic when it LEAVES the social platform and heads to a business’ website.To accurately follow these leads and conversions, an agency will need to help your business integrate email and sales for following up. You will also need a well-developed content marketing strategy as this is often why people leave the social network and head to your website in the first place. continue reading »last_img read more

Sherwood senses lack of respect

first_img Former Norwich and Blackburn midfielder Sherwood feels he would need a full season to put his own stamp on the team. “People will always judge on what I’ve come in and done,” he said. “You’re absolutely right, it’s imperative to have a pre-season and bed your ideas in. And also I’m doing it with a lot of uncertainty around my future. “If you have a supply teacher who comes into your school, sometimes they’re not treated with the respect that a headmaster is.” Midfielder Sandro, who has fallen out of favour since Sherwood’s appointment, announced on Thursday that he is under the impression there will be a change at the top following Sunday’s final Barclays Premier League game against Aston Villa. “He (Sherwood) will leave at the end of the season,” Sandro was quoted as telling ESPN Brazil when asked about his own future. “Then, new coach, new everything. I do not know anything yet, but I’m happy to have my name talked about with a club the size of Sao Paulo. Anyway, it would be very difficult to leave on loan from here. “If I was to leave, it would have to be permanently and it is not close. Other teams have come, however, with little money. The chairman (Daniel Levy) negotiates every transfer, this was the case for (Gareth) Bale, it is not easy.” Tottenham head coach Tim Sherwood believes the uncertainty surrounding his future has left him as vulnerable as a school supply teacher. Sherwood hit back in his press conference ahead of the Villa game, questioning where Sandro had acquired such information while also admitting his situation means players are starting to knock on his door. “If I need any information I’m better off asking the players,” Sherwood said. “He is not the first player to have asked me. He hasn’t actually asked me, he has just given his opinion to someone. “I’m not sure if the chairman has spoken to Sandro but obviously someone has told him, the players see a lot of speculation. “It begins to be more than that, I have had a lot of players come to me and say their agents have told them that I’m not going to be here next year, it is a very difficult situation but I have got to get on with it.” Despite the rumours over his uncertain future, Sherwood has a good record in the Premier League and a point at home on Sunday would guarantee qualification for next season’s Europa League. Sherwood also confirmed that England right-back Kyle Walker has no chance of being involved in the game as a pelvic injury continues to leave the 23-year-old’s World Cup hopes in the balance. The 45-year-old has been dealing with constant speculation over his job at White Hart Lane since he penned an 18-month contract in December, having replaced Andre Villas-Boas. The likes of Frank de Boer, Louis van Gaal and Mauricio Pochettino have been linked to the Tottenham hot-seat for some time now – with Sherwood refusing to be drawn into the ongoing chain of rumours.
