Short vs Long Form Content: The Truth about Content Length

Long vs Short Form Content: The Truth about Content LengthEveryone’s talking about how awesome long form content is. In fact, several people have released studies showing how long form content performs better than short content.

Jungle Scout Review: Amazon E-commerce Tool for Product Research

Jungle Scout Review: Amazon FBA E-commerce Tool for Product ResearchWhen I launched my first e-commerce store in 2004, using SEO to get search engine traffic from Google was probably the easiest way to start making money with an online store. All I had to do was trade links with other related e-commerce stores and the search engines would send targeted traffic to my site.

A lot has changed since then… Google made it harder to get ranked and now you actually have to do real marketing. But Amazon opened up its doors to third party sellers and now just about anyone can start selling on Amazon.

The good thing is that if you want to sell on Amazon, you can get started for free and if you want to launch your own private label brand, an investment of $1,500 to $2,000 might be enough to get started. And once you get your product launched, it’s often mostly passive income, which is great if you are working full time or have other obligations. You just have to monitor your sales and keep the product in stock.

But how do you find a good product to sell?

I did a good bit of research on Amazon not too long ago and one of the tools I kept hearing about was Jungle Scout, which is a tool designed to help find items that can sell well on Amazon. Jungle Scout offers a web app that lets users search a database of Amazon items for products to sell and a Chrome extension that allows users to display information about a page of products.

This review covers the web app and some of the drawbacks.

49 Instagram Marketing Tools to Grow Your Instagram Traffic

40+ Marketing Tools to Grow Your Instagram TrafficOver the past few years, I’ve spent a good amount of time exploring other social media networks and experimenting with marketing on them.

One social network that I’m particularly excited about is Instagram. Instagram is one of the fastest growing social media networks with over 400 million users and I’ve heard of people growing followings exceeding 100k on Instagram alone.

Additionally, Instagram’s ability to convert users into buyers seems to be higher since Instagram is based on social interactions rather than ads.

I decided to do some research on Instagram and some of the tools that people can use to manage their presence on that platform and market themselves. I’ve provided a list of tools and articles that you might find helpful if you want to get into Instagram marketing.
