Business etiquette and body language blunders

 

There are certain behaviors we all know will raise eyebrows and offend people. Standing too close to someone while talking, double-dipping, and a feeble handshake, are all examples of behaviors that others find off-putting.

Particularly in business, it’s crucial to avoid the common pitfalls and adhere strictly to etiquette, especially when in a foreign setting.

While Westerners are suspicious of people who avoid eye contact, East Asian cultures don’t consider looking someone in the eyes a must. In fact, many Chinese and Japanese consider steady eye contact provocative.

But there are also more subtle, perhaps culturally specific faux pas, and committing them can be as easy as inadvertently checking the time while speaking to someone, or nodding too frequently.

Then, of course, there are the behaviors we don’t even catch ourselves displaying, but which nonetheless cause others to take a dislike to us, such as fidgeting and clenching our fists, or crossing our arms during a conversation.

We’ve looked at a selection of common etiquette breakers, and some you may not have considered before.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RANK IN GOOGLE?

A week, a month, a year plus? The question of how long it takes to rank top of Google is one that we’re asked almost daily. Unfortunately, it is a difficult question to answer as there are just so many variables to consider: existing domain authority, competition, on-site ranking factors, off-site ranking factors… The list goes on.

If you’re ready to put in the hard yards (or hire an SEO specialist to take care of things for you) then SEO can be a very worthwhile exercise, but it’s by no means a short-term strategy. Exactly how long does it take to rank in one of the lucrative ‘top of the first page’ positions on Google? The short default answer has to be – “it depends” but we couldn’t sleep well at night having left you with an answer like that!

Fortunately, thanks to the help of a superb study carried out by the team at Ahrefs, we think that we can do one better than to simply answer with our own question relating to the length of string. So to give you something a tad more quantifiable than a copout – “it depends”, we’ve created this infographic (below) to shed some light on the topic.

How To Track And Validate Website Sales Leads By Marketing Channel

A broken bone is relatively easy for a doctor to fix, but what if that doctor didn’t know which bone was broken? Putting the patient’s entire body in a cast might solve the problem, but it’s terribly inefficient — not to mention unpleasant for the patient. Knowing as much as you can about a problem makes it much easier to solve, and the same principle applies to optimizing a lead generation website.

Here at PPC services agency Straight North, we’ve found that many online marketers don’t have all the information they need to improve their websites. That’s because they rely on the raw conversion numbers from Google Analytics, which don’t identify which conversions are true sales leads and which are dead ends. Implementing lead validation and tracking into their lead generation websites can give these marketers the additional level of information they need to succeed. The following presentation details the step-by-step process of implementing lead validation and tracking into an Internet marketing campaign. Read it, and you may be able to better identify the problems lurking in your data.

Matt Cannon is Director of Web Services at Straight North, an Internet marketing firm in Chicago that offers SEO, PPC and web design services. Cannon manages all web development activities, making sure that every project is applying current development standards and techniques.
