I’ll never forget the first time I watched one of Lisa Irby’s video tutorials. I was searching on YouTube for blogging and marketing tips and found one of her WordPress videos was one of the first results on the page. That was back in 2009 and I’ve been a huge fan of Lisa’s ever since. We’ve chatted many times on each other’s blogs, on social media and in her online forum Website Babble, and quite honestly I consider her one of the most highly respected people I’ve met online. With that said, today it’s my great pleasure to introduce Lisa Irby to the fans and readers of Basic Blog Tips! Enjoy the interview with my online mentor Lisa Irby from 2Createawebsite.
Want to teach a course on Udemy? You can create a video training course and once it’s approved, your course will be available for sale across a network of over 6 million registered students and promoted in the Udemy Marketplace.

Bloggers and content marketers are starting to pay a lot of attention to a fabulous content development tool called Buzzsumo. And with good reason! Buzzsumo is a content development and research tool that is worthy of praise. I fell in love with the tool while it was still in beta back in 2014 and apparently I’m not alone because it’s been featured everywhere from Ian Cleary’s Razor Social to Mike Stelzner’s Social Media Examiner and this incredible tool even shows up as the subject of a Marketing Course on Lynda.com. At this point, you’re probably wondering, what’s all the buzz about Buzzsumo. There’s so many ways you can benefit from having this tool in your arsenal, so without further ado, here’s 10 Ways to Generate Viral Content Using Buzzumo!
According to the latest statistics from YouTube, “300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute”. This is just one of the many staggering facts and figures surrounding the success of the internet’s most prominent video marketing platforms. Here’s another fascinating factoid: “According to Nielsen, YouTube reaches more US adults ages 18-34 than any cable network.” It’s funny how things change, when I was in that age group cable TV was the next big thing, and today it seems everyone wants to cut the cord. With that said, these days when you think about the ever changing landscape of social media and content marketing, I’m sure there’s no doubt in your mind that YouTube is here to stay.
I shared my best Pinterest marketing ideas in this interview with Jeff Sieh. But first, let me tell you a little about Jeff. He’s the man behind the widely popular Google+ Hangout series called The Manly Pinterest Tips Show. Yes, that’s right, men love Pinterest too! Jeff is also making a name for himself in the world of video production and social media management with His Design Online, the company he started a few years back. I think Jeff is the perfect person to advocate for the wide spread adoption of Pinterest by men around the world.
For years YouTubers were frustrated by the lack of traffic data available for their YouTube channel. We longed for a system that would rival the data rich reports we’d come to know and love in Google Analytics, and the old, out-dated YouTube Insights, reports were merely scratching the surface. This left the video analytics door wide open for freemium tracking services like vidIQ, Cyfe and TubeTrackr to easily attract any video marketer who wanted detailed performance reports for their channel. All of that changed a few days ago when YouTube released Realtime traffic reports on the desktop version of YouTube Analytics.
Rob Cubbon is a London-based blogger that I connected with several years ago through blogging communities and social media networks. It’s been a pleasure to watch Rob build his reputation and authority online through his blog, freelancing and web design expertise. To date Rob has published several Kindle books on Amazon covering WordPress, passive income, home-based business and more. It’s been several months since the last time an interview was posted here on the blog, but I really wanted to share some of Rob’s story here because I know you will get inspired by what he’s done just like I did.
