Kaila Strong's favorite social media platform is Pinterest:

Q: I know you’re an avid Pinterest fan. Can you tell us in a few words how that can be used effectively in company’s content marketing campaign?

A: Pinterest is great for just about any company. I encourage others to think about the visual assets you have that others enjoy. Think about experiences related to the products or services you sell. Create a grouping of images that represent that. I’ve seen clients of ecommerce stores find success on Pinterest by simply allowing pinning of their images. You’d be surprised how many individuals use Pinterest to “bookmark” interesting products to go back and purchase. One client of mine had a pinner pin items for a Pirate birthday party. That pinner purchased the products 20 days after pinning! Let your images and products speak for themselves on #Pinterest simply by encouraging others to pin.


How to make your blog popular within ONE MONTH. "I am currently 100% focused on writing quality posts and growing my social networks. SEO, backlink building... is not on my priority list. If I made all this happen in such a short time without Google's help. I can go on without it as well. It's much more fun being creative than competitive "


@BradSKnutson talks about content marketing in general and his experience with in particular!

Q: When did you start using ViralContentBuzz? How did you find us?

A: I’m not sure if I remember how I found VCB, but I have a faint memory of reading a blog post Amanda DiSilvestro (@ADiSilvestro) wrote and thinking VCB looked like a great place to boost my social media efforts. I have to say, regardless of how I found VCB, it’s been a great tool and one I recommend to everyone.

Instructor Biography

Gerald Weber, Professional SEO and Entrepreneur

I've been involved in internet marketing for small businesses since 2003

I started my love affair with social media in June 2008 when I joined Twitter. Shortly after that I signed up for StumbleUpon followed shortly by publishing posts on my company blog. This is about the same time I became heavily involved in social promotion and content marketing.

  • *Early 2003 I worked for a local Houston SEM firm
  • *In December 2005 I Founded Search Engine Marketing Group
  • *In Sept 2012 I Co Founded Viral Content Buzz

I started in the SEO/SEM field initially as a sales person. Although I was very good at it I eventually grew to actually hate sales. So I decided to get involved in the production side of the SEM industry. My specialty is helping small business with their visibility online. I don't simply employ the use of individual tactics. Rather I create comprehensive marketing plans for small businesses.

My areas of expertise include:

  • Local SEO/SEM
  • Social media marketing
    Content Marketing
  • Blog management and promotion
  • Pay per click management
  • Conversion tracking
