Postaga Outreach Campaigns

Expectations for a Campaign: Open Rate / Reply Rate / Funnel Higher Quantity = More Responses Personalization = More Responses EX: Can you update your blog with my new link? Skyscraper: Find top ranked article on a topic. We want to OUT-RANK this article. (Ahref or Ubersuggest to get list of their backlinks, export the links and reach out, "I think my article is better") Don't reach out to everyone - audience matters. Make sure your recipients are relevant or you'll waste your opportunity in case that recipoient evenutally is relevant. Personalization / be specific Research + Merge Fields are Key Due diligence POSTAGA - Merge Field - Hi {First Name} - Prospecting (linkedin? website?) blog article on OUTREACH / AUDIENCE / LEAD process -not specific to a tool but for M.T. training -the entire process, how to find an email, add to audience, add to campaign, reach out, add to bitrix, ALL of that. postaga -> mailchimp -> bitrix ORRRRR are these 3 separate articles linked to each other ORRRRR 3 separate artciesl with same subtopic "outreach campaign" PROVIDE VALUE OFFER SOMETHING IN YOUR EMAIL RECIPROCITY "we have x followers and blah blah and we can help you" send a "Follow up" "sequence of emails" 3 - 5 POSTAGA PROCESS!

Mailchimp

Setup

  1. Sign up for a FREE Mailchimp account.
  2. Set up your Merge Fields:
    Audience Dashboard -> Settings -> Audience fields and *|MERGE|* tags
  3. You should configure this page so that it matches up with the columns in the audience files that you will be importing.
  4. THe Merge Fields should be in the same order as columns in the imported file(s).
  5. You can also add any useful fields that are present in the imported file(s) and remove unused fields.
  6. Use the Data Type of "Website" if you're adding a field that contains a link (URL).
  7. This screen also ties with Tag names that you will be able to use in your email campaign templates.
  8. If you do the above prior to importing, then when you perform your audience imports (Audience -> Add Contacts -> Merge -> File) the Merge Field mapping will be streamlined / automatic.
  9. Remember to tag your imports with the Tool and Industry used to prospect the audience!
1 audience use segments, tags, groups to separate tags = label (matrix tools added) Platform / Industry groups = preference center (user picks in a form) segments = data you already have, use to send more targeted marketing setup a "tag" of matrix tools test users? and then a segment for us? to send test emails to? run a test campaign "PREVIEW SEGMENT" "INTEGRETATION" "AUDIENCE AND ADD SEGMENT" BRAND AND PERSONALIZATION AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE ADD VALUE with PITCH TAGS = THE INDUSTRY (OR THE LIST IT CAME FROM MAYBE A TAG FOR WHAT PLATFORM) ===========2=========== notes on mailchimp INTRO audience - marketing crm, audience dashboard, tags/segments/groups (CAN ADD NOTES FROM BLOG HERE) -- 1 audience with tags/segments/groups -> start with a test tag?

Intro to Power Business Intelligence

Definitions: Power Platform

  • "Business Intelligence" comprises the strategies and technologies used by enterprises for the data analysis of business information. BI technologies provide historical, current, and predictive views of business operations.
    • Structured
    • ETL (Extract, Transform, Load
    • Database / Data warehouse / Data lake
  • "Data Analysis" is an approach to data that seeks to find insights and indentify patters or trends (Nuggets of Insight).
  • "Data Mining" = Analyzing large amounts of data.
  • "Big Data" = High-volume, unstructured, real-world generated data.
    • Volume
    • Variety
    • Velocity
    • Variability
    • Veracity (How reliable?)

5 Stages of BI

  1. Collect and store data
  2. Transform "Big" data into "BI" data
  3. Present Key Metrics
  4. Evaluate data to discover patterns, trends, and insights
  5. Sharing reports and findings to empower others (Visualizations and Presentations)

Pricing

  1. Free (just hit X on logins)
  2. $9.99/month/person for sharing
  3. Enterprise Level

Row-Level Security

  1. Need a subscription (because it's useless without sharing)
  2. Service Admin

Import Apps

  • Mailchimp
  • Twilio (SMS)
  • Marketo
  • Insightly

Data Analysis Expressions

  • Related
  • Switch
  • SelectedValue
  • IsBlank
  • and &&
  • concat &

Power BI Data Analysis Expressions
Power BI Dax Relationships
(RELATE is Based off Model) Power BI Drag and Drop Relationships
Power BI Dax Switch

Direct Connectivity

  • [clustername].azurehdinsight.net
  • Power Platform

Importing Data

  • Manual Refresh
  • Schedule Refresh
  • Direct Query (never stale)

Direct Query

  • Instead of Importing data into the file, you are connected to a Data Source.
  • File -> Options -> Data source settings (also in Transform data dropdown)
  • Get Data -> Azure Sql Database
  • Options for Authentication (not available on Importing data)
  • Creates a Composite Model based on the link to the data (keeps relationships)
  • Never goes stale because it updates as you click
  • However you do have some control over this if performance on the Database is an issue
  • File -> Options -> Options -> Current File -> Query Reduction
  • On-prem (non-cloud) data sources require a Gateway (Power Bi -> Download -> Data Gateway)

Matrix Tools ~ Social Media Marketing

Matrix Tools Implements 3+ Social Media Marketing Campaigns for each Platform!

  1. Daily - Client Images - (Scheduled via Buffer or Manually Posted)
  2. Weekly - A.I. Generated Content - (Scheduled with Approval => Auto-pilot via Quuu)
  3. Monthly - Promotional Posts - (Manually Posted)


Setup

Matrix Tools "Social Media Strategists" will be given logins to 2 main applications:

  1. Buffer = our scheduler
  2. Quuu = our A.I. Content Generator

We also recommend using a "Website Copy" tool in order to pull down all of a website's images.
I prefer Cyotek on Windows and Wget on Mac and Linux.
Pro Tips: You can install and run Wget via the command line via

sudo apt install wget
wget --recursive --convert-links https://nashvilleinktattoo.com



To Do for each Client

  1. We will need Admin access or Credentials for each of the Client's Social Media platforms (these Credentials can usually be found in Bitrix).
  2. Create a new local folder, something like /Desktop/MatrixTools/SocialMedia/{client-name}.
  3. Now you can use your "Website Copy" tool to copy their website down into your new folder structure.
  4. If you would like, you can delete everything except for the IMAGES!
  5. Log into Buffer.
  6. Add any new Social Media platforms to Buffer.
    How to add Social Accounts to the Buffer scheduler
  7. Now if you would like, you can log into Buffer and manually post an image to each platform every day.
  8. If you do not want to do this every day, you can schedule the "Daily - Client Images" in advance via Buffer's scheduler.
    How to add Posts to the Buffer scheduler
  9. Within the Image Posts, remember to add a link to the Client's Website and/or a friendly message.
    How to create and view posts in Buffer
  10. You might want to move or delete each image after you've uploaded it to Buffer. This should ensure that you do not post duplicates.


A.I. Generated Content

  1. Log into Quuu.
  2. Add the new Social Media account to Quuu (you can do this by Refreshing the Buffer connection).
    How to use A.I. to generate content with Quuu
  3. Pro Tips: Initially, set this to Manual so we can approve the content for the first couple of days. If all of the A.I. content is relevant and positive to the client, then we can come back and toggle this setting to put it on Auto-pilot!
    How to setup A.I. to generate content with Quuu
  4. This will auto generate content that will then be shared (thru Buffer) to Social Media platforms.


Costs

  1. Quuu = $100 (for Life!)
    • This gives us 6 Social Media Accounts for 1 LIFETIME payment!
    • Matrix Tools, LLC was provided with a very special offer: the Quuu Ultra Plan for Life!!
    • This is the reason we can offer A.I. Generated Content to our Clients for such a great price!
    • It's such a great deal that it's a competitive advantage for Matrix Tools
    • The next level would support up to 10 Social Media Accounts but would cost $228 per year!
  2. Buffer = $0 or $144 per year
    • The FREE Buffer plan supports 3 Social Media Accounts.
    • The next level would be the Pro Plan for $144 per year, which supports 8 Social Media Accounts.

I wanted to share a simple and free method to add SSL to your website, so that it runs under HTTPS (HTTP Secure). This is done for security reasons and will also give your site a boost on search engines. First, you will go to SSL for Free. This is a great site to create and manage your SSL certificates.
To verify your site, you can go to Manual Verification and download a text file to a .well-known/acme-challenge folder on your site.
SSL for Free After clicking the new file to verify the site, it will allow you to download a trusted SSL certificate for free and you will also get a private.key. SSL Files
  • If you're having problems hitting the verification file, you might have to adjust the permissions on the .well-known folder or files.
  • If you're using .NET Core and still having problems, try this code in Startup.cs in the void Configure function:
// SSL app.UseStaticFiles(); app.UseStaticFiles(new StaticFileOptions { FileProvider = new PhysicalFileProvider(Path.Combine(Directory.GetCurrentDirectory(), @"wwwroot/.well-known")), RequestPath = new PathString("/.well-known"), ServeUnknownFileTypes = true // serve extensionless file });

Another helpful trick I learned is to add a web.config file into the "acme-challenge" folder with the following contents:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <configuration> <system.webServer> <staticContent> <clear /> <mimeMap fileExtension="." mimeType="*/*" /> </staticContent> </system.webServer> </configuration>

Finally, with .NET Core deployments, I have found that there can be an issue deploying the .well-known directory, so I found some additional code for the .csproj file to help with those issues:

<ItemGroup> <Content Include="wwwroot\.well-known\**" CopyToPublishDirectory="PreserveNewest" Exclude="$(DefaultItemExcludes)" /> </ItemGroup>

If you're running on IIS, there is one additional step in order to convert these files to a .pfx file. For this I recommend using this SSL converter site. SSL Converter
Now you will have a .pfx file with a private key. On Windows, you can just double click the file to add it to your local machine's certificate store. Now in IIS, when you bind your site to port 443, your new certificate will appear in the SSL certificate drop down list!

You can read more about my IIS bindings strategy here.

I'd like to look into a way to automate renewing of certificates!
What sites and tools do you use?

This is an easy tutorial explaining how to create a custom email address or alias.
First, you will need an existing Gmail account and you will need a method of forwarding emails to that address.
For example, I use a great site called Namesilo.com to register domains.
It has an Email Forwarding feature that allows me to chose any email for my domain and forward it to any Gmail account.
(In other words, the redyoshi.com account can forward any email *@redyoshi.com to my current Gmail inbox, or any other existing inbox.)
Namesilo.com
After your domain manager sets this up you should run a test by sending an email to your new address and verify that it shows up in your inbox.

Now you can receive emails from that address, but that's only half of the battle, we still need to be able to send emails from that address.

To do this in Gmail, as a pre-requirement, setup an extra security feature called 2-step authentication.
Click here to enroll in Google 2-Step Verification
2-step Authentication
  • First, you'll need to create and copy/save an "App password" from this link.
  • Then you'll go to your Gmail settings - Accounts and Import - Send mail as - Add another email address.
  • For the SMTP server use: smtp.gmail.com
  • The Username is your Gmail email address, but instead of your Gmail password, use the new "App password" that you saved.
  • If you're still having problems logging into your Gmail account on this step, you probably need to make sure 2-step authentication is activated.

And you're done! Now you should be able to send and receive emails from your new address.
Just for a reference, I got this information from this support answer. I will also show the answer below, however, the support answer fails to mention the very important trick about the "App password".
Google Alias You can also reach out to Matrix Tools and they can do all of this for you, or if you have any questions just contact them at contact@matrix.tools

Finally, by going to Gmail's settings, I recommed adding a custom signature for any new alias.
At Matrix Tools, we use the following template to ensure a consistent signature:

-------
{Name}, {Position}
Matrix Tools, LLC
www.matrix.tools
[IMAGE - https://www.matrix.tools/iamge/seo.gif]

(Using Bold Text and Small Image)
Gmail Custom Signature

The following is my strategy for Website IIS bindings.

There are basically 4 different addresses that all point to your website. You have an http and an https, as well as a www. and a non-www. version. You should be using https for security and SEO reasons (you can read more about how to setup SSL for free here), and then you will have to pick if you prefer the www. or non-www. version as your main address. I use "https://www." for all my sites, which means that the other 3 addresses should all point to that one. This is accomplished via IIS (Internet Information Services) bindings.

IIS bindings are used to bind a URL address to a website folder that exists on the machine. This is how the machine knows what files to serve to the user when they visit your URL.

Below you will see IIS Site Bindings that enure all traffic to "https://www.redyoshi.com" is served the correct files for the RED Yoshi site.

IIS Site Bindings
"Require Server Name Indication" if you have multiple sites using SSL on your server.

The "Basic Settings" dialog box controls the location of those files.

IIS Site Settings

Now we need to setup another IIS binding for the other 3 addresses and have it redirect to our https version.

Example:
IIS Site Bindings 301

Right click on Sites in IIS and click Add Website...

I will call this one "RedYoshiHttp301", and instead of pointing to the actual files, I will point to any other location. This location will be used to store the configuration.

(I like to create an 301 folder in the website for this.)

IIS Add Website

Now that RedYoshiHttp301 exists we will setup 301 Redirects for it, in order to redirect to the https version.

Click on the "HTTP Redirect" feature in IIS and setup a 301 like this:

IIS HTTP Redirect

Now click on the "URL Rewrite" for this new site and add 3 rules to improve SEO.

The 3 rules keep everything consistent https address, lowercase, and without the trailing / in the URL.

IIS URL Rewrite

That's it, you're done!
