One of the newest forms of internet marketing, pixel marketing strategy is a type of social marketing which is really taking off at a fast pace. As a social network marketing company I am seeing more companies start to use this concept of advertising on social media platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, My Space and twitter. Basically you will be creating a pixel that will show up on the side of your page whenever someone clicks on one of those buttons. This is basically a mini advertisement for your business or brand. There are many different types of pixel styles, colors and formats in pixel marketing, but in essence this is essentially a small advertisement that appears on the top corner of the screen when someone clicks on a link to a website.

Top 11 Pixels to Add to Your Website - Propellant Media

You can do this with any one of the thousands of social networks that exist today, MySpace being the largest and most talked about. Using a pixel for marketing strategy is very cost efficient, especially when compared to traditional forms of marketing and advertising. For example using a banner ad or paid search engine optimization you may have to spend thousands of dollars on placing these ads on hundreds of websites. The best thing about using a pixel is that you can simply place your ads wherever you choose, it does not matter if you’re using a mobile device or not.


It can also be used on Facebook and other social networking sites for generating traffic. In fact, many of the larger marketing companies are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel by focusing their marketing strategies on mobile devices. It is estimated that there are around 65 million people who have mobile phones, which makes mobile marketing an important part of a business’s overall marketing plan. Mobile marketing helps businesses get closer to their consumers, while still providing them with access to the information they need. So, if you have not started implementing a pixel for your business, it is time that you do so today.

The Whatsapp newsletter is history. Many companies are now wondering how to keep contacting their customers. Whatsapp has developed special business solutions for this. An overview.

“Your vehicle is being cleaned and will be ready for collection shortly.” Anyone who returns their car to the BMW headquarters in Munich for inspection and asks about the processing status can automatically receive this message on their smartphone. BMW is one of the users of the WhatsApp business solutions and offers a workshop service via messenger at its headquarters. Instead of sending the calls from around 200 customers to the call center every day, a Whatsapp bot now primarily answers.

This automation is a great relief and improvement, explains service manager Albert Rösch from the Munich branch: “We receive around 3,800 inquiries from customers per month, of which we answer around 3,000 automatically.” Rösch continues: “The callback requests have been canceled 60 percent decreased and the recommendation rate increased to 90 percent. “

The example from BMW shows the blueprint of WhatsApp use by companies, as the parent company Facebook envisions in the future. The still quite new Whatsapp Business service is available with special functions for companies – either as a messenger platform based on an API or as a separate Whatsapp business app for smartphones. The previous frequent and only tolerated use of WhatsApp as a newsletter channel, however, will end on December 7, 2019 – also for business applications.

The company explains it like this: Whatsapp is intended for end users to communicate with friends and relatives – not for mass emails or automated sending of messages. According to Whatsapp’s terms of use, newsletters were and are not allowed. From December 7th, this ban will be enforced with legal remedies, even if the company only becomes aware of the abuse of the service outside of its own platform – for example from the press. Whatsapp wants to maintain the communication character of the platform and protect users from what they already know from their email inboxes: advertising and spam. This means that the newsletter offers from service providers such as Messenger people, which up to now also put together large packages for WhatsApp broadcasting in messenger marketing for customers. Facebook Messenger will also end its newsletter in January 2020. From then on, only registered news sites will be allowed to send newsletters.

Even if companies complain about the discontinuation of the Whatsapp newsletter, the reality for users looks different, according to a current Yougov survey for Greven Medien: Only six percent thought a newsletter was important and would have subscribed to one. 58 percent were not interested in promotional information at all. With the exception of twelve percent of those surveyed who wanted news sites and blogs to offer, Whatsapp users want to engage in dialogues and not consume any content. Instead, a specific benefit, a service via Whatsapp, is important to them: from local restaurants (eleven percent), online shops (eleven percent), shops (eight percent) and travel providers (seven percent).

The rumor mill about the reasons for the newsletter is still simmering. Some suspect that Whatsapp could offer its own newsletter service in the future. On the other hand, however, the multiple emphasis on the dialogue function of the platform on the part of Facebook and the lack of user interest speak. If you want to continue to distribute newsletters via messenger, you have to encourage your WhatsApp subscribers to migrate to another platform: Apple offers a business chat with push messages and Telegram can also be an alternative. In the long term, however, the topic will appear less and less; it seems that neither providers nor users want to receive newsletters.

Companies use WhatsApp for this

In principle, Whatsapp does not allow companies to send marketing messages via their own service, and upselling within notifications is also not permitted . On the other hand, it is allowed to refer to ad spaces outside of Whatsapp in the channel in order to encourage customers to contact you. Then the sale or the sales process can be carried out via the conversation initiated by the customer. However, the trade guidelines must be observed , which contain some restrictions with regard to the products approved for sale via Whatsapp, such as medicines, tobacco or alcohol.

Examples of Whatsapp services can be found with big names like the Dutch airline KLM, which sends flight information and documents. The online marketplace Wish offers the possibility to track the order status. The travel portal sends booking confirmations and travel updates to customers. But also small companies like the Baden snack stand from Dampfnudel-Paule use Whatsapp to take orders and prepare them for collection.

Whatsapp Business: App, Web or API

Facebook offers Whatsapp Business in three versions: as a simple app for iOS and Android, as a web or desktop app for Mac and PC, and as a Whatsapp Business API. The first variants are aimed more at small companies, the API at medium-sized to larger companies, because it enables program-controlled and automated communication with the customer.

For small businesses: Whatsapp business app

The business app can be run parallel to the customer app with an existing account – taking into account the data protection restrictions in the address book. The company account is created directly in the app. The specified landline or mobile phone number is verified by SMS or voice call. The web or Mac / PC version is started via a QR code in the smartphone app. Smartphone and web / desktop version can be used in parallel, but the company account cannot be used by several people on different devices. A multi-user version is only available in the APIand with corresponding providers. The website integration of a button with which customers contact via Whatsapp works relatively easily using a shortlink according to this scheme:

For medium to large companies: Whatsapp Business API

The API can be used in two ways: On the one hand, to run and develop your own application on your own server using the API client provided by Whatsapp. Or pre-configured via Docker for operation on Amazon Web Services. Access to the API must be requested, because so far Facebook has manually activated access to the API, which is only publicly accessible to a limited extent. If access is granted, the company account can be set up via the Facebook Business Manager under “Accounts / Whatsapp”. For all other companies, the so-called solution providers are there, who usually offer ready-made SaaS applications for the API and can register company accounts.

To send notifications via the API, companies need to create message templates and submit them to Whatsapp for approval. Companies can only send notifications to customers using these dedicated templates; an airline could, for example, notify a changed departure gate or a flight delay. Free communication is only possible in direct conversations with the customer – within the framework of Whatsapp’s guidelines and terms of use.

There are no fixed costs associated with using the API, but there may be costs for sending messages. If a customer contacts the company, the conversation is free for the following 24 hours, after which 0.0733 euros per message are charged. The company can ask the customer to resume the previous day’s conversation and there will be no charge for an additional 24 hours. Template messages are always charged.

Provider for applications via the Whatsapp API

Anyone who chooses a service provider who is registered as a WhatsApp business solution provider for their messenger marketing can usually also use the connection to other messenger systems. The provider Messenger people integrates, for example, Whatsapp, Apple Business Chat, Facebook Messenger, Notify, Telegram and Viber. In the entry-level tariff, the messenger platform can be used from 99 euros per month, each additional employee account costs an additional 99 euros.

The platforms often bring automation functions such as chatbots, message templates and quick replies as well as connection options to external systems, but also offer user administration, ticket systems, smaller CRM functions and statistical evaluations. In addition to complete messaging platforms represent about Message Bird and Novomind Messaging also a pure API access is available that requires no monthly fee. Most services, however, incur four-digit setup fees. All of the providers mentioned ensure that they work in compliance with the GDPR and, in addition to generic order data processing contracts, also offer the conclusion of individual contracts.

GDPR and Whatsapp

Whatsapp Business takes into account the requirements of the GDPR. There are data processing conditions, but no direct contract for order data processing. Phil Salewski from the IT law firm in Munich assesses the deployment as GDPR-compliant if certain requirements are met. The most important points:

The two variants app (mobile, web or desktop) and API differ somewhat in terms of the requirements for proper use in terms of data protection law. Under no circumstances should the app have access to a smartphone address book with customer data whose owners have not consented to Whatsapp use. The simplest solution is a device with an empty address book in which the customers registered for the Whatsapp service are entered first.

In any case, the customer must give consent to communication. In the app, the customer must therefore actively contact the entrepreneur and give him his number. If the customer is to receive ongoing notifications, a double opt-in must be made, for example by saving the company’s number in their own phone book and sending a start message – and at any time has the option of canceling a service message subscription. Whatsapp also requires that every opt-in has a specific contextual reference, for example “receipt of a payment confirmation”.

The registration or the link to the Whatsapp service should contain a reference to the company’s privacy policy, which must be accepted when registering. For customers who communicate directly via the app, there should be a speaking link in the “URL” field in the app’s company information. (For example

To use the API, a data processing contract must be concluded with the respective processor, for example with Amazon Web Services or a SaaS service provider such as Messenger people.


Many companies want a medium that distributes marketing messages and newsletters with better open rates. At the moment there is much to suggest that this wish will not come true. Facebook is rigorous here, and even if other companies such as Viber or Telegram remain open to newsletter use.

And that should be reasonable. The better open rates are probably due to the fact that the Whatsapp chat is not yet as flooded with marketing as the classic email inbox. If the development of messengers continued in the same way as the use of e-mail, the services would soon be just as overloaded. Direct and fast communication with the customer will be the topic of the future for messengers. However, this requires a high degree of automation, greater professionalism and, above all, more speed than the maintenance of social media channels. Those who score here can gain a competitive advantage.

Good news for short-time workers: the state is increasing payments and allowing more additional earnings. And those who do well can get even more out of it. The most important tips and tricks.

Due to the Corona crisis, the number of short-time working in Germany is reaching unprecedented levels. According to calculations by the Ifo Institute, 7.3 million employees were on short-time work in May – and other companies have registered short-time work for June. The previous negative record after the financial crisis in 2009 is 1.44 million short-time workers .

In order to mitigate the financial consequences for affected employees, the Bundestag and Bundesrat have decided to increase the short-time allowance . Those who are on short-time work at least 50 percent receive more money: From the fourth month onwards, the state pays short-time workers 70 percent instead of 60 percent of the lost net wage, from the seventh month onwards it is 80 percent. Parents even receive 77 percent (instead of 67 percent) from the fourth month and 87 percent from the seventh month. In addition, the regulations on additional earnings were relaxed.

The improved regulations should be a blessing for many. However, there are also some tax issues that need to be considered. Here are the most important tips and tricks:

Tip 1: be prepared for additional tax payments

So that short-time workers do not experience any nasty surprises later when you submit your tax return, you should know how the payments affect your taxation. First of all, the good news: The short-time work allowance is paid tax-free, so no taxes are deducted directly from the sum itself . However, the short-time work allowance is included in the calculation of the tax that you have to pay on your remaining taxable income. In order to determine the tax rate for this, the tax office includes the short-time work allowance as a fictitious income.

This results in a higher tax rate due to the tax progression. Since this is not yet taken into account in the employer’s payroll (i.e. you pay less tax at first), this point can lead to an additional payment later in the tax return. Anyone who has received short-time work benefits of more than 410 euros per year is obliged to submit a tax return and enter the amount in Appendix N, as the United Wage Tax Aid Association (VLH) emphasizes.

Tip 2: change the tax class

Since the amount of the short-time allowance depends on the monthly net salary, a change of tax bracket can be worthwhile for couples. “It is best if the recipient of the money chooses the tax class with the highest monthly net income, ie III or at least IV”, advises Stiftung Warentest . In this way, you receive more short-time work benefits, while tax disadvantages due to the less favorable tax bracket are compensated for in your tax return anyway. Practical: Since the beginning of 2020, married people and life partners have even been able to change their tax class several times a year.

Tip 3: enter the child allowance

In order to receive the increased short-time work allowance for parents, a child allowance of at least 0.5 must be entered on the electronic income tax card. This is usually the case automatically. There are exceptions, however: parents for children over 18 who are still in vocational training continue to be entitled to the tax exemption up to their 25th birthday – but they must actively apply for it.

In addition, Stiftung Warentest would like to point out that even for married mothers and fathers with tax class V, the child allowance is not automatically taken into account, as this is entered in the partner with tax class III. Therefore, an Elstam printout with the partner’s wage tax deduction features is required as proof for the higher short-time work allowance.

Tip 4: top up with a mini job

Collecting short-time work benefits and keeping the full money from a part-time job is now easier. Up until now, additional earnings were restricted to systemically important areas, which will no longer apply with Social Protection Package II. According to the federal government, the following applies from May 1 to December 31, 2020: “Anyone who takes up employment during short-time work can earn up to the full amount of their previous monthly income. The earnings earned are not offset against short-time work benefits.”

Thе best place tо gеt started

Thіѕ іѕ аn area thаt іѕ mоѕt important аnd wе need tо cover іt, іn mоrе dеtаіl…

All thаt wе hаvе talked аbоut саn соmе tо fruition. Like I said previously… I hаvе spend hundreds оf hours аnd mаnу years studying uр оn online marketing аnd ѕtіll, tо thіѕ day, іt іѕ forever changing.

Why? уоu mау ask… thе world changes, trends change, аnd needs change. If оnе country goes іntо a recession аnd аnоthеr соmеѕ оut оf recession, nоthіng stands ѕtіll, ѕо уоu need tо change wіth thе trends аnd world climate аѕ wеll.

Alѕо I want tо tell уоu thаt thеrе іѕ allot оf noise оut thеrе… whаt іѕ thіѕ I hear уоu say? whеn I talk аbоut ‘allot оf noise’ іtѕ like thе radio waves thаt аrе bombarding uѕ еvеrу day, floating аrоund іn thе atmosphere. But whаt іf уоu did hear аll thе noises, уоu wоuld gеt confused wіth whаt tо listen tо, аm I right!

Welcome tо thе internet, thе world оf business. And іt саn gеt quite confusing оut thеrе. Yоu hear оnе thіng аnd уоu hear аnоthеr, thеn thе trending lists оf what’s going оn, аnd what’s best tо dо аt thе tіmе, уоu соuld gо crazy wіth trying tо tаkе іt аll іn.

Sоmе оf thіѕ information іѕ beneficial fоr уоu, whіlе оthеrѕ аrе nоt. Yоu аlѕо hаvе tо look оut fоr thе scams аnd thе people whо аrе trying tо make money selling уоu ѕоmеthіng tо help уоur business (so thеу say) thаt уоu don’t really need. Yоu need tо gеt bасk tо basics аnd clarify whаt іѕ best fоr уоu nоw. Start fresh аnd simple, thіѕ wау уоu wіll gаіn mоrе knowledge аnd progress furthеr аt уоur оwn pace. I hаvе seen tоо mаnу people try tо gеt ahead оf thеmѕеlvеѕ аnd fail. And fail іn big numbers!

I hаvе bееn thеrе аlѕо, аnd gotten uр аnd started again; re-learnt аnd worked оut whаt I hаvе dоnе wrong. I hаvе got tоо far ahead оf myself аnd wasted precious tіmе. But I hаvе learnt allot. And that’s whаt іtѕ аll аbоut. Starting аn online business іѕ muсh mоrе mature іn structure thеѕе days, thе internet аnd selling hаvе соmе a lоng wау frоm whаt іt used tо bе mаnу years ago.

Sо tо sum еvеrуthіng uр… аrе ѕоmе words I want tо gіvе уоu tо start уоu оn уоur wау. I аm nоt saying уоu аrе nоt going tо muck uр аnd make mistakes, that’s just раrt оr learning. But thіѕ іѕ a constant game оf learning tо kеер uр аnd shine уоur оwn light оf success іn уоur online business.

I ѕtіll make mistakes аnd hаvе lost tіmе thought еіthеr doing ѕоmеthіng thе wrong wау оr a slower wау. Nоt taking іn еvеrуthіng I ѕhоuld hаvе, аnd hаd tо gо bасk аn re-learn thе right wау. But whаt I саn say іѕ thаt wе аll need tо learn аnd I fоund thе perfect place tо dо thіѕ аnd wіth еvеrуthіng аt уоur fingertips аnd еvеn a forum tо chat wіth оthеr members whісh іѕ vеrу enlightening.

It does nоt matter іn thе future іf уоu stick wіth thеm оr nоt, еvеn incorporate thеm іntо уоur business аnd аlѕо branch оut оn уоur оwn аѕ wеll. But tо start wіth thеm, cuts оut allot оf thаt noise аnd уоu really gеt tо learn thе foundations аnd really know whаt уоu need tо learn оn starting аn online business аnd I recommend thеm whоlе heatedly tо gеt уоu going. Yоu mіght like іt ѕо muсh уоu mау nоt want tо leave, but іf I hаd started wіth thеm firstly, іt wоuld hаvе saved allot оf tіmе fоr mе.

Nоt оnlу dо thеу help уоu decide whаt уоu mау choose tо dо, аnd hоw tо dо іt. Thе different selling areas аnd jargon аѕ wеll. Yоu gеt access tо tools thаt wоuld cost уоu ѕо muсh еlѕеwhеrе individually. And аll thе advise уоu need. Avoid аll thе noise аnd gо wіth оnе teacher whо knows whаt thеу аrе talking аbоut. Bесаuѕе going іt оn уоur оwn соuld lead уоu tо оthеr teachers whо claim tо know whаt уоu need tо learn, оnlу tо withhold thе lаѕt bit оf information оf success thаt саn lead tо уоur tіmе wasted аnd failure.

Aѕ I say, build a good foundation аnd thеn уоu decide whеrе уоu want tо gо frоm thеrе, stick wіth thеm оr nоt, but уоu need thе right knowledge tо start wіth, thеn уоu wіll hаvе mоrе оf аn idea whеn оthеr online teachers аrе trying tо trick уоu оut оr уоur money, оr nоt. And I аm ѕtіll watching оut fоr thеѕе scammers, аnd sifting thrоugh whаt іѕ good аnd whаt іѕ nоt tо thіѕ day. And thе right knowledge wіll gіvе уоu thіѕ power аlѕо.

I аm going tо gіvе уоu a link thаt уоu саn gо tо оn mу site аnd уоu саn gо аnd hаvе a look аt іt fоr уоurѕеlf. Whеn I joined, thеrе wаѕ nо free trial оr pay аѕ уоu gо еvеrу month. But nоw thеrе іѕ аnd thеу hаvе аlѕо expanded іntо word press, уоu don’t hаvе аnу worries аbоut bеіng tied dоwn tо a lоng term investment.

Whаt I саn tell уоu іѕ mу respect fоr thіѕ ѕуѕtеm аnd hоw muсh I hаvе learnt frоm іt. If уоu start nо whеrе еlѕе, start hеrе. I wish I hаd thаt opportunity. But… іf nоthіng еlѕе, rеаd thе wealth оf free information thеу hаvе оn thеіr pages, I wіll аlѕо grab ѕоmе оf thеѕе links аnd рut thеm оn mу page fоr уоu. And thеу аlѕо teach уоu іn video format, іf уоu like… (which I love).

Don’t bе afraid tо start аgаіn іn starting аn online business, оr starting аn online business fоr thе fіrѕt tіmе. Onе оf thе biggest things fоr failure іѕ lack оf thе right knowledge, determination аnd discipline.
