A new company called Info Media Consultancy is transforming the way businesses in the United Arab Emirates market themselves

A new company called Info Media Consultancy is transforming the way businesses in the United Arab Emirates market themselves, according to Managing Director Hani Masgidi. “After the world financial crisis, businesses need to find new ways to attract and retain customers if they are to remain competitive. The good news is that with proper guidance, this form of marketing is both cost-efficient and highly effective.”

Info Media Consultancy offers a variety of services to their clients. In most cases, Mr. Masgidi recommends that a company start with a customized strategic marketing plan. This plan focuses on optimizing your online presence for both user experience and search engine optimization. “Many companies don’t realize the impact your website has on your bottom line,” says Mr. Masgidi. “Make the necessary changes and you will see an immediate increase in both leads and revenue.” Some of the components of the strategic marketing plan include search engine optimization (SEO), email management, video marketing, user interface analysis and internet advertising.

Info Media Consultancy has several advantages that make them stand out over the competition for UAE marketing consultancies. For one thing, they are on the cutting edge when it comes to online marketing practices. “There are innovations in internet marketing every day,” explains Mr. Masgidi. “What worked a month ago may no longer be effective today, so you need to choose a consultant that monitors trends constantly.”

In addition, Info Media Consultancy realizes that to be truly successful today, a company has to compete in a global economy. As Mr. Masgidi notes, “We deliver world-class services on a multilingual platform, and we have strategic alliances in place which enable us to assist our clients whether their business is primarily local or international.”

Press Release Submission Website List Released To Help All Webmasters Get Traffic For Free

Press Release Submissions is a great way to get free website traffic for websites. Until now, lists have consisted of non-working websites, websites which actually sell something but don’t offer submissions mixed in with a few quality websites. Internet Marketing Services has researched thoroughly the marketplace and has created a quality list for all people to use for free to help anyone who has news of any kind to announce to the public.

The goal of Internet Marketing Services is to enable everyone who has a website and is willing to work at it, make their website important and popular for free or with little costs in doing so.

This Press Release Submission Website List was created by viewing each and every website placed on this list which totals now over 380 each. Also, to help Webmasters choose which websites to submit their press releases to within their budgets, a list of costs charged by some websites is listed along with the Google and Alexa rankings to help in their selections along with the many, many free submission websites. In addition,Internet Marketing Services has successfully used press releases and offers the list of the websites they used to do so. Since that time, there have been many more websites discovered plus added on the internet and they are also part of this researched

Internet Marketing Services reports that upon completion of submissions, usually within 2 or 3 days, a surge of website traffic is experienced which is faster than other types of marketing available to Webmasters. Also, they warn Webmasters to realize this must be news and not sales so they should spend some time reading other press releases that are readily available on the internet. There are many events or situations that are newsworthy that are lost which could benefit Webmasters if they knew what they need to do and what information they need to coorelate in order to submit a quality press release to news reporting entities.

It is also recommended that a webmaster submit their press release to as many websites on this Press Release Submission Website List as possible within a 3 day period as each website they submit their press release to has various ways of handling the press release, i.e.; some only place it on their website, some submit to RSS new reads, some submit to a list of newspapers, some submit to high profile news entities such as google news, etc. so most of the effort is not duplicated when using the list. The webmaster must make sure the date, etc. are correct when submitting.

In addition to this Press Release Submission Website List, there is information on the this website to help Webmasters captialized on this marketplace that is not used very much but is helpful for increasing web traffic. The Press Release Submission Website List is located at this URL for convenience: http://www.internetmarketingservicessite.com/press-release-submission-list.html.

Bigmouthmedia And Econsultancy Unveil UK’s First Social Media & Online PR Survey

Bigmouthmedia and Econsultancy will reveal the results of the UK’s first extensive survey into the use of Social Media and Online PR at a specially convened industry summit later this month.

The results of the research, which will provide the most detailed data yet available on the extent to which UK companies have embraced social media, the methods of engagement currently employed and the value being derived from such activities, will be unveiled to an audience of invited delegates in London on November 25th. Organised by bigmouthmedia, the event will also see presentations from Facebook, Microsoft and Futurenet on the phenomenon’s far-reaching impact upon the business world.

“The social media revolution has evolved from emerging trend to mainstream communications channel in a remarkably short space of time. Yet despite the increasing prominence of platforms like Twitter, until now there has been no solid data available on how companies are using it and the benefits they are deriving from the practice,” said Leanne Rinning, Online PR Manager at bigmouthmedia.

“We are delighted to have partnered with Econsultancy on this research. The preliminary results are already in, and while some of the results may surprise the audience, I’m confident that our survey will cut through the hype and provide real insight into how to get the best out of this rapidly shifting channel.”

Rinning, who will give a presentation on planning, executing and measuring online campaigns, will be joined on the day by Facebook’s Josh Smith, who will speak on the impact of advertising on social networking platforms. Kate Box of Microsoft is scheduled to provide her take on how traditional digital and social media can work together, while Futurenet’s Jessica Healy will also give an account of the publishing world’s struggle to come to terms with the phenomenon.

“Social media is simply about listening and interacting with your customers, using channels that many staff will already be familiar with, such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Digg. It is in many ways about common sense, yet there is a lot of uncertainty in the business world about how to engage it,” said Econsultancy Research Director Linus Gregoriadis.

“By engaging with customers you increase satisfaction, which is a proven way of generating repeat business and referrals. There are very few companies that wouldn’t want to do that, and we believe that after attending this event, guests are going to leave with a much clearer view on how to go about it.”

The event, which will take place at 76 Portland Place, London, will include lunch and networking drinks. There are a few places available, but attendance will be strictly limited. Registration of interest can be done by contacting socialsummit@bigmouthmedia.com.

Bigmouthmedia Has Announced The Appointment Of Former Nokia Vice President Mark Bole As Group Chief Executive Officer

Bole joins Europe’s largest independent digital marketing agency with a wealth of high-level experience in the technology sector. An accomplished senior executive with a track record of running successful pan-global operations, he will take over the day-to-day management of bigmouthmedia’s offices in Europe and the US as the company embarks upon the next stage of its development.

“I am delighted to be joining bigmouthmedia at such a pivotal moment in its development. It has a fantastic brand, a gilt-edged client list and is uniquely positioned to gain competitive advantage in an exploding sector, so I’m very much looking forward to being part of the next stage in the company’s growth,” said Bole.

Bole has 20 years experience working with dynamic, fast growth companies. He spent 12 years at Nokia in a variety of roles across the mobile giant’s European and Far Eastern operations before ultimately rising to the position of Vice President. After leaving the company in 2001 he served as President and COO of the telecommunications software company Incomit prior to its acquisition by BEA systems in 2005 and most recently was Chief Executive Officer of mobile social media services provider ShoZu.

“The search for a new Group CEO has been intensive, and I believe that in Mark Bole we have picked a winner. He has held roles at a very senior level with several technology heavyweights, and has coal-face experience of running complex multi-territory European organisations as well as mergers, acquisitions and the challenges these events can throw up. He is supremely well qualified for the position” said Steve Leach, Executive Chairman at bigmouthmedia.

The announcement will see Leach – who founded bigmouthmedia from an Edinburgh basement in 1997 and turned it into a multinational company operating in ten countries and 30 languages – transition to an executive chairman position directing group strategy.

“My initial vision was to make bigmouthmedia the biggest brand in search and I think we’ve done pretty well on that front, but now this agency is ready for a new, even greater future. While my time as CEO has been both enjoyable and demanding, I believe the company will benefit from a fresh perspective, and am taking on a new role to allow that to happen,” said Leach.

Free 2009 White Paper Teaching Value Proposition Concepts

Marketing firm eXubrio Group LLC introduced an updated free white paper by Michael Lanning on the basics of value propositions and value chains. “The white paper, titled ‘Delivering Profitable Value,’ explains the concepts of value propositions, value chains, and value delivery systems,” said Paul McAfee, Co-founder and CEO of eXubrio Group.

Michael Lanning, chairman of The DPV Group, LLC, wrote this white paper based on the consulting work his firm does for companies worldwide. Michael initially created the well-known concepts of the value proposition, and value delivery system, as a strategy consultant with McKinsey & Company. Michael further developed these concepts into a comprehensive business philosophy, framework, and methodology, as discussed in Michael’s book “Delivering Profitable Value.”

Delivering Profitable Value (DPV) is a radically different management process for profitably generating long-term growth. It begins with deeply studying the behavior and experiences of customers, thus uncovering opportunities and threats that cannot be revealed either by listening to customers or by studying one’s own competencies. DPV calls upon managers to use this understanding to make a disciplined choice of what changes in the customer’s experience the business will cause. This is choosing a winning value proposition. Managers also must learn to design each business as a value delivery system. This is the rigorous alignment of all resources and processes in order to deliberately provide and communicate each element of that chosen value proposition.

Marketing firm eXubrio Group offers the Delivering Profitable Value process as one of its business strategy development services with permission from The DPV Group. Readers can find the “Delivering Profitable Value” white paper at eXubrio Group’s web site: http://www.exubrio.com/white-papers. “This process forms the foundation of the work we do for our clients,” McAfee said.

Leaf And Vine Winery Marketing And Wholesale Providing E-Commerce, Event Calendars, Blogging And Social Media To Help Micro-Wineries Gain Exposure In Highly Competitive Market

Leaf and Vine Winery Marketing and Wholesale is a new company formed to help small boutique wineries gain wider recognition for their product in an industry dominated by corporate wine producers with huge marketing budgets and staff. Because so many small wineries have slight budgets and little to no staff to perform promotional or sales tasks on a consistent basis, Leaf and Vine offers plans designed to help micro-wineries gain exposure using inexpensive, online tools.

Earlier this year, the company launched one of those on-line tools, their e-commerce site SelectWinesOnline.com, specifically for boutique wineries that do not have the means to sell on-line. Client wineries simply provide the inventory, and SelectWinesOnline.com handles the rest – all transactions, fulfillment and shipping are processed by the site, which is fully compliant and licensed for wine sales to several different states. The site is constantly undergoing search engine optimization, and Internet traffic to the site is boosted by a paid search engine placement program, which results in SelectWinesOnline.com’s page one, top spot on Google and Yahoo searches.

In addition to the on-line sales tool that SelectWinesOnline.com provides for Leaf and Vine clients, the site also functions as a one-stop marketing shop. There is a blog that provides free marketing tips (with plans to allow client wineries to also post content), and an event calendar that promotes winery events to city, county and regional community calendars. That calendar, WineEventsNow.com, was launched one month ago, and because it is built on a social media-type platform, already receives over 700 hits a day. Lastly, winery clients benefit f r o m Leaf and Vine’s daily marketing efforts on their multiple Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Leaf and Vine Winery Marketing and Wholesale also offers web design, advertising and print materials design, and blog creation, social media plans, email campaigns and newsletters. Their marketing department and sales reps have many years experience in various gourmet food and leisure product industries. For a complete list of services visit www.leafandvine.com.

Internet-Based Advertising & Marketing Company And Its Core Network, Clickbooth.Com, Report Staggering 12,654.4% Growth For #5 Spot In The Country

Inc. Magazine has ranked IntegraClick, an online marketing corporation located in Sarasota, FL and its core network, Clickbooth.com, 5th on its annual list of the top 500 fastest growing privately-held companies in the U.S. The list is the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s entrepreneurial sector.

Technology companies, such as Intuit, GoDaddy and Oracle gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500. The company’s innovation for offering unique, customized online marketing solutions was also recognized by its number one position among the Inc. 500 list for Advertising and Marketing businesses.

“We are pleased to be recognized by Inc. – not only for impressive sales growth, but also because of our innovative business model which is entirely based on successful ROI delivery,” said CEO John Lemp. “It is proof that our model hits a sweet spot in the marketplace. In a tight economy, companies are even more focused on performance-based marketing opportunities. In the cost-per-action (CPA) model, advertisers pay only when the desired result is achieved – such as a sale. “This totally eliminates the marketing risk from the advertiser,” continued Lemp.

The 2009 Inc. 500, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. magazine (available on newsstands August 17 to November 15) and on Inc.com, reported aggregate revenue of $18.4 billion — up significantly from last year’s $13.7 billion — and a median three-year growth rate of 880.5 percent.

The companies on this year’s list are also responsible for creating more than 55,000 jobs since they were founded, making the Inc. 500 perhaps the best example of the impact private, fast-growing companies can have on the overall U.S. economy. The largest company on the list, flat-panel-TV maker Vizio, broke the $2 billion revenue mark. Complete results of the Inc. 500, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found on Inc.com.Despite the ongoing recession, the 2009 Inc. 500 offers a glimpse of the future of the U.S. economy.

“If you want to know which companies are going to change the world, look at the Inc. 500,” said Inc. editor Jane Berentson. “These are the most dynamic, fast-growth companies in the nation, the ones finding innovative solutions to problems, creating smart systems, and inventing products we soon discover we can’t live without. The Inc. 500 list is Inc. magazine’s tribute to American business ingenuity and ambition.”

The 2009 Inc. 500 measures revenue growth from 2005 through 2008. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by the first week of 2005, and therefore able to show four full calendar years of sales. Additionally, they had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent — not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies — as of December 31, 2008. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2005 is $200,000; the minimum for 2008 is $2 million.

IntegraClick Has Been Honored As One Of Florida’s Best Companies To Work For 2009 By Florida Trend Magazine

To qualify for consideration, all of the candidate companies must have been in business for at least one year and employ 15 people or more. The results will be published in Florida Trend’s August issue and online at FloridaTrend.com.

For IntegraClick, Florida’s Best Companies To Work For 2009, is a designation that is especially meaningful, given the number of companies who participated in the survey in this category. In the survey, a midsize company is one that employs between 50 and 249 people. Midsize companies in Florida vastly outnumber small and large size companies.

IntegraClick’s Director of Public Relations, Chastanna Taylor, says making the list was very meaningful. “Knowing that the midsize category would be the most competitive makes this achievement an extra bonus.”

Many companies located in Florida completed the two-step process to be considered for this designation. IntegraClick is the only company in the SW Florida region to be recognized in the midsize category.

All of the participating companies, including IntegraClick, were asked for information about their demographics, corporate philosophy, practices, systems, and workplace policies. The second part of the process involved company employees. They were asked to evaluate their employers and reveal whether or not they found their work environment to be a satisfying one. The results of the two surveys were added to give each company a final score by Best Companies Group (www.bestcompaniesgroup.com), who also administered the online surveys.

Taylor also states, “The key to our success as a company lies with our people. To be the best, we need to hire and retain the most qualified candidates available. Our managers are second to none, and they set the tone for how our business is run.

4checks’s Affiliate Program Switches To Google Affiliate Network

Since 1999, 4checks.com has been a leading search portal for personal checks, business checks, and other banking accessories. Because the company knows that affiliates are fundamental to generating growth, it works hard to provide them with the most innovative technologies available.

personal checks

On May 18, 2009, Kathy-Ann Viau, 4checks’ Affiliate Manager, officially switched the operating platform to Google Affiliate Network. Because Google provides extensive reporting tools to advertisers and publishers and boasts unparalleled expertise in the affiliate area, Ms. Viau thought this switch would be most beneficial to the 4checks program and its affiliates. Additionally, Google is a very reputable brand, which will help guarantee a smoother transition for affiliates. The affiliate of Direct Response Publishing commented that “It’s always a little [un] nerving moving over links because I have about 8 websites to do, so lots of work, but I think the decision to move to the Google [Affiliate] network is excellent.” When asked about the new affiliate program, Ms. Viau said, “Though it was a difficult decision to move away from our existing networks, I am very excited to be starting this new chapter of the 4checks program. Partnered together with the Google Affiliate Network I expect tremendous success for the 4checks program.”

Limousine Search Engine Advertising and SEO Services By Be Found Marketing

Be Found Marketing, a marketing firm specializing in organic website optimization, has launched a specialized marketing and SEO service for limousine companies. The service provides market-exclusive search engine and local map optimization for limousine rental companies seeking to dominate local search results.


“Limousine operators rely more on search marketing to acquire new customers than most other businesses,” says Steve Williamson, spokesman for Be Found Marketing. “By focusing on SEO for limousine companies, we provide a unique market advantage for our clients.”

Studies into local business marketing trends reveal that over half of all searches for local businesses are initiated in search engines. An estimated 95 percent of Google users never click past the first page of results, and over 70 percent of them rely on organic rather than paid search results. Higher organic search rankings prove to be cheaper and more effective than any other form of advertising for local businesses online.

The growing importance of search rankings underscores the need for limousine operators to market creatively and aggressively. Limousine companies don’t benefit from a brick and mortar presence like many local businesses – they rely on search marketing and directories as a result. With the significant decline of Yellow Page directory usage and the explosive growth of local business search online, limousine companies are faced with new challenges. “General marketing techniques are not enough to succeed in the highly competitive local limousine industry,” says Williamson. “Our exclusive clients benefit from our understanding of local markets and our specialized limousine marketing techniques.”

For information about available markets, pricing and a free consultation, visi twww.befoundmarketing.com/limosine_SEO.html or call 888-287-7370.

About Be Found Marketing:

Be Found Marketing is an internet marketing firm specializing in organic search optimization, paid search optimization, map optimization and online tracking. The firm provides innovative and cost-effective marketing solutions for limousine companies seeking to generate higher search rankings and return on investment.

Bigmouthmedia’s Norwegian Team Has Won The 2009 Gulltaggen Award For Best Search Strategy Of The Year

Unveiled as the winner at a prestigious ceremony in Oslo, bigmouthmedia Norway was awarded the region’s most prominent SEO prize for its work promoting the education site Sonans.no. Judges praised the company for mounting a campaign that exploited a full range of online marketing techniques.

“We’re honoured to receive this award. While bigmouthmedia Norway has enjoyed a lot of success internationally, we haven’t been as visible as we would like to be on our home turf. It’s therefore great to finally be able to show everyone what we’re made of”, said Freddy Aursø, Managing Director of bigmouthmedia’s Nordic offices.

He continued, “Winning this award proves that ethical search engine optimisation works. By designing a strategy utilizing organic search, paid search and a variety of other digital marketing techniques we have seen great results throughout the entire campaign.”

Founded in 1999, over the last decade the Gulltaggen Awards have become recognised as Norway’s most important digital marketing industry prizes. This year’s event took place over two days in Oslo, with a daytime conference followed by an evening ceremony honouring the companies and individuals that the judging panel hailed as “the new heroes of digital creativity”.

The award for best search strategy is a new category, and bigmouthmedia’s integrated SEO and PPC campaign for Sonans Education made the company its inaugural winners.

“We’re delighted to have our efforts in Scandinavia recognised with this award.

The whole team has worked extremely hard to earn this honour, and I’m very pleased that their expertise has been rewarded,” said Steve Leach, bigmouthmedia Group CEO.

He concluded, “Awards like this confirm that our Nordics offices are building the same reputation for excellence enjoyed by bigmouthmedia teams around the world.”
