I’ve been thinking. 2014’s almost here and do you know what I think is going to be your biggest challenge with Internet marketing in 2014?

Getting your message heard.

The fact is, everyone’s getting bombarded with more and more messages everyday. Whether it’s on your phone, tablet, desktop, TV, it’s only going to get worse in 2014. So how can you start to break above the noise?

There really is only one possible answer: You have to make your content and messages so good that they can’t ignore you – just like my emails 😉

Hear me loud and clear, to win in 2014 you must deliver delivering high quality content that meets the conversation that’s going on in the mind of your prospects and clients.

Quit looking for corners to cut and short term tactics. Start playing the long game and become an authority in your industry by putting out only the very best content you can.

In this way, you’ll have people stop and listen to your message. You’ll demonstrate leadership and you’ll attract more business. It’s our secret weapon and one that makes us an unstoppable force in perhaps one of the most competitive industries there is online, SEO.

Imagine applying these strategies in less competitive niches – it’s like taking a gun to a knife fight. Now here’s me leading by example: I scour the web looking at hundreds of news items to bring you only the very best and most important. Useful huh? So, here’s what I spotted this week:

SEO in 2014: How to Prepare for Google’s 2014 Algorithm Updates {good bits}

Low Hanging Fruit of Social Media {this is getting more and more important}

How to set up Google Authorship {do it already}

How many links on a page should we have? Is there a limit? {Worth thinking about}

50 Google Now Voice Commands {this is part of the future of search}

HP will enter 3D printing but not via acquisition {this is going to be a huge industry}

3D printer boom lures new wave of Japan entrepreneurs {the trend is rising}

The Tim Ferriss Experiment Premiere: Rock N’ Roll Drums {cool}

And how about our news.

#1. I’ve had loads of requests for round ups, interviews and guest posts. Here are a couple from this week.

Anyway, I better get back to my Christmas present shopping, I’m going to see if I can do it 100% online this year.
