Mondovo’s Upcoming Pricing Change on 3rd October, 2017

When we launched Pay-As-You-Go back in September 2016, we were convinced that greater value was the need of the hour. Having spent over 11 years in this industry, we’ve tried and used nearly every tool set from every company there is. The one takeaway that we most commonly got was the lack of flexibility. That’s where Mondovo’s pay-as-you-go model came in. We gave our users the flexibility to pay for just the reports they needed when they needed them.

Post launch, for the most part, we were successful. Mondovo gained more traction in a few months than it did in the entire year or so preceding it. However, what became clear was the business model was not sustainable because revenues were not predictable.

We do still want to offer the same value proposition that we’ve offered thus far and yet do it in a manner that’s sustainable in the long-run. We can only continue to give you better data and tools if we’re growing ourselves. Hence the impending change of moving over to a subscription based model BUT based on the same pay-as-you-go concept.

So, if you’ve been a user of our tool, everything would work in the same way, with the sole difference being that there will be a minimum monthly fee.

We are still going to be the most affordable toolset available. Our pricing and feature set remain unmatched.

16 Practical Restaurant Marketing Strategies to Drive More Customers to your Restaurant

Get more customers to your restaurant
In 1995, less than 1% of the world population had an internet connection. Today, over 3.6 billion people use the internet. That’s more than 40% of the world population.

A huge chunk of this online population search for and find restaurants online. They look up menus, compare prices, go through reviews before going over to a restaurant or ordering food from there.

As per a 2016 Adweek survey, 25% of people have at least one restaurant app on their phone. As per another survey, 85% of those who search for food on their mobile phones go on to complete a purchase.

But they don’t stop at merely having discovered a restaurant that they might like, or after making a purchase.

Modern, tech-empowered consumers click pictures of the food that they have been served, go online to post their reviews, and share their experiences on social media—which in turn could enhance footfalls at your restaurants or dissuade people from further visiting your establishment.

The thing is whether you are online or not, your customers are. Talks veer around your restaurant, its ambiance, the food you serve, the service you offer, and more.

Look at the infographic below, these stats have been compiled from Toast’s Industry Report and Restaurant.org’s data:

67 key stats on how online user reviews can influence purchasing behavior

In a recent report published by WebsiteBuilder.org, it was determined that for every additional star in rating that a business gets, their sales revenues are bound to increase by approximately 5-9%. On the other side of the spectrum, studies have shown that around 22% of consumers will not purchase a product in case they have read a negative review about it, thus showing the strong influence that online user reviews can have on purchasing behavior.

There are some interesting stats about the impact of online user reviews outlined in the infographic below. More than 67 data points have been researched and published in the infographic.

9954 Visitors in just 7 Days. How one piece of EPIC Content transformed our site traffic

Back in March, we were having a problem with our Site’s Traffic numbers. They just weren’t growing as fast we wanted. This is a typical problem faced by most business owners or site admins and one that’s widely covered online. For reference, a quick search on Google on how to boost your site’s traffic will give you over 4.100,000 results. 4 Million search results (!) with no way to know which ones actually work and which ones are going to end up a colossal waste of time and money.

Since we knew that we had to do something really drastic to kick it up a notch (and without breaking the bank in the process),  we didn’t rely on the traditional approach of advertising or waiting for traditional SEO to take effect.

 

We decided to turn to Content, but with a twist. And to keep things interesting, threw ourselves a challenge to get 5,000 unique visitors to the piece of content we develop and to get that number within 7 days of it’s publishing. The content asset we created was truly something  special and after the 7 day deadline was up, we found that we had not only met our own target but exceeded it twice over with lots of good links to boot! Most amazing of all, the content asset became an evergreen one and continues to send amazing traffic and links our way.

How to Get Search Volume Data for 5K Keywords – at the Price of a Big Mac

As content creators, you must be having tons of ideas and keywords. I have them too. Long lists of keywords saved on .txt files, saved on word docs, categorized on sheets, scrawled down on random pieces of paper strewn around my work desk, resting on the cockles of my brain, and in my thoughts and prayers.

With such long lists of ideas and keywords staring at me from multiple corners, sometimes I imagine, where do I even start. Which keyword do I pick? Which ones do I avoid? And most importantly, why?

There has to be some rationale right. For, as marketers, we can’t afford to be swayed by emotions but rather must rely on hard, tangible facts.

This is where I leverage the power of Mondovo’s Bulk Search Volume Tool – our in-house search volume tool that lets you find search volume and CPC data for up to 50,000 keywords (unlike any other tool in the market).

The SEO Proposal Template that Wins 80% of Clients

a winning seo proposal

Some of you might be in a hurry and hence may not want to read through this entire post. If you want direct access to the “SEO Proposal Template That Wins You 80% of Your Clients”get the free download from here. However, I suggest that you go through the article as it’s loaded with important insights, suggestions, and tips to maximize the impact of your SEO Proposal.

How often has it happened that you’ve spent hours working on an SEO proposal for a new prospective client, only for it to result in a no deal?

It can be frustrating and hard to take the time to come up with a customized SEO proposal for each client and then for it to not get the desired response. You ideally would want your SEO proposal to have a high close rate!

Thankfully, there are a few things you can do to ensure your SEO proposal gets the treatment it deserves.

In this blog, I’m going to show you how to pitch your SEO services better so that you get a higher conversion rate

Additionally, I’ll be including a sample SEO proposal template you may use as an inspiration while preparing your own winning SEO proposal.

Step 1: Pitch Better

If you do a Google Search for the perfect “SEO agency pitch” or “SEO proposal templates for clients“, you get over 3 million search results all claiming to have the magic formula for the ‘perfect pitch’. Being an ex-agency man myself, I can tell you that there’s no such thing. Successful pitches are done by agencies that don’t do one thing extraordinarily well, they do 10 things better than the competition. Here’s what I recommend.

To start with, here’s what a pitch typically looks like from both parties p.o.v.

SEO Agency Pitch

Even a fresh-faced intern can see the difference. I’ve seen agencies put in tremendous effort in developing the pitch. Collecting every scrap of information possible and spending agonizing hours on revision after revision only to lose the pitch in the end. So what’s going wrong? Is data not important?
