Established SEO Opening Up to Social Media Marketing

Established Search Engine Optimization (SEO) guru Konrad Braun finally admits social media traffic may be worth pursuing if traffic volume is the desired outcome.

Kelowna, Canada - January 3, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

Konrad Braun - blogger at - recently shared his new-found belief in social media website traffic. Although he is usually a strong search engine marketing guy, he says there is something magical about getting traffic from sources like Facebook.

"Don't get me wrong" says Braun, "I absolutely love getting search engine traffic and still believe it to be one of the best sources one can get website traffic from simply because if people come to your site through the search engines, chances are pretty good they are looking for exactly the information you provide on the site. Meaning this type of website traffic is extremely targeted and is easy to sell to!"

When asking what opened his mind about social media traffic - specifically facebook traffic - Braun said: "It's really a long story, but basically what happened is my wife - a well known food blogger - was having a hard time getting a lot of targeted traffic to her website from the search engines. Like, she got some traffic but not a lot. Yet, when she shared her pictures and recipes on social media, she started getting a fair bit of traffic instantaneously."

Braun continued "Then one day took the Moolah Facebook Page Strategies course - a now popular facebook marketing course by Rachel Miller - and within a few short months she grew her facebook following from roughly 6000 followers to over 100,000 followers. Of course the traffic she was able to generate from facebook followed suit. It was just unbelievable."

When asked if he would consider getting out of search engine optimization (SEO) and go full force into social media traffic instead, Braun insisted "No, I don't think I will ever quit doing SEO just because I absolutely love it and more importantly, search engine traffic is still the most qualified traffic you can get to a website. What I could see myself do though is do both: Facebook marketing and search engine marketing."

Braun says doing both would insure he not only gets a lot of traffic, but gets highly qualified traffic to his website as well. Essentially harvesting the benefits and advantages for both.

Vettel needs to keep pressure on Hamilton in Germany

Jul 20, 2018

HOCKENHEIM, Germany — Sebastian Vettel needs to keep the pressure on Lewis Hamilton at this weekend's German Grand Prix. At the midway point of the Formula One season — the 11th of 21 races — Vettel holds an eight-point lead over Hamilton. Vettel started strongly, then Hamilton took over, and now Vettel appears to be in the ascendancy again. While he leads Hamilton only 4-3 in wins this season, Vettel's most recent victory was particularly poignant because it was at Hamilton's home track at Silverstone, where the British driver has had huge success. Vettel's win heaped more misery on Hamilton,...

Auto industry cries foul as Trump moves toward car tariffs

Jul 20, 2018

WASHINGTON — Having started a trade war with China and enraged U.S. allies with steel tariffs, President Donald Trump is primed for his next fight. He is targeting a product at the heart of the American experience: cars. Trump's latest plan is to consider slapping tariffs on imported autos and auto parts — a move he says would aid American workers but that could inflate car prices, make U.S. manufacturers less competitive and draw retaliation from other nations. The action has also begun to provoke a backlash among member of Congress, who have so far been reluctant to challenge Trump...

Tesla Model 3 buyers lose patience and maybe tax credits

Jul 20, 2018

DETROIT — In March of 2016, Keith Reynolds flew from California to Atlanta so he could claim his spot in line at 4 a.m., and get a three-hour head start on his West Coast competitors. Tesla was taking $1,000 deposits for its new electric car, the Model 3, priced starting at $35,000. And Reynolds had to have one. He managed to land near the top of the waiting list. Flash forward more than two years, through much-publicized production delays. Reynolds is still waiting. And now, like others in the U.S. on a waiting list of about 420,000 worldwide, he worries...
