Last week, Facebook announced that it would begin testing advertisements on its popular Messenger chat app among a small group of users in Australia and Thailand. These ads, Facebook noted, will appear on the homepage of the app, and not within messaged conversations. Messenger is the second most popular messaging app in Thailand, according to figures cited in a recent report from We Are Social and Hootsuite. Close to half (48%) of the country’s population polled in Q4 2016 said they use the platform. Messenger continues to trail Line—but not by much—and holds a solid lead over WeChat, which 20% of respondents reported using.

Why are high performance websites crucial for SEO?

Article | May 28, 2021

Search engine optimization is one of the most important subdomains in digital marketing where organisations try to get visitors from search engine ranking pages to their website. The most vague approach by businesses is to just post content on their website, create backlinks of it and expect to rank number one on the targeted keywords. However the reality is that search engines consider a lot of factors in ranking a web page such as website’s loading speed, responsiveness for mobile device compliance, good user experience, rich snippets, keyword frequency in content, interest of visitors in content and then comes in the turn for backlinks and domain authority. Why SEO is Mandatory for Websites? SEO requires continuous efforts everyday due to 3 major factors. First is search engines rank the latest content on top most position at first and later on adjust the rankings according to other parameters. The second issue is changes in google’s algorithm bi-yearly which has the tendency to suppress the rankings of all web pages of a website. The third is your competitors who are creating better content to outbeat your website. We need to understand that a business can put in limited efforts on content marketing and backlinking, depending on their budget. The above mentioned factors are continuously vanishing the results derived from their previously made efforts so the high performance websites, customizations and rich snippet integration to ramp up the performance of complete websites. In one of our previous experiences we have seen web pages jump up from 3rd page of google search to 1st page in a day after deploying a faster version of the website. The initial journey of SEO can be done placidly with content management systems initially but later on comes the saturation point where to procure more traffic either we have to increase workforce or add more integrations. These integrations are very costly on a content management system for a website with huge user traffic that’s why such businesses should build their custom websites and get access over source code. To do so they can outsource the project to a software development company, hire developers from an offshore company or hire their own in house developers. One more factor that contributes in converting leads to customers is user experience which can only be improved with tracking user behaviour, user feedback and testing new UI improvements done on the basis of suggestions. The same journey is followed with any new functionality built after users demanded it via feedback. The above mentioned points suggest the conclusion that high performance websites and technical teams can help businesses to derive exponential growth in traffic if the SEO and technical team work hand in hand.

Is customer experience enhanced by branding e-commerce shipping boxes?

Article | May 28, 2021

While an entire marketing industry exists around the concept of experiential packaging and its impact on the customer experience, the focus has been mostly on inner boxes. The Wall Street Journal reports retailers are attempting to offset shipping costs by selling ad space via package inserts that are placed on the inside of boxes, but printing on the outside of shipping boxes still remains a largely untapped market. While the outside of corrugated shipper boxes has been largely ignored, that seems to be changing. Some retail giants, such as Amazon, are driving the trend of branding shipping boxes. It has been more than four years now since Amazon made headlines by plastering its shipping boxes with advertisements for the movie Minions. Amazon has continued to use its shipping boxes to promote its own products.
