When we are working with clients who have spent months developing marketing strategies internally, there are always small "pieces of tinder" or simple mistakes left unseen that turn into fires later when it’s time to launch.

As tempting as it can be to sit back, grab a glass of eggnog, and regale anyone who will listen about the awesome things you’ve done for your company over the last twelve months, that’s probably not the best steps to set up success for the next year.

The phrase “dialing for dollars” is becoming less of the norm as digital inbound and outbound marketing has taken the lead qualification and made it much more effective. Understanding how to leverage both behavior- and demographic-based scoring models will not only guarantee that the right leads are receiving the right content, but also ensures that sales is working with leads that are truly interested in the services or products being offered. Behavior scoring involves identifying various sales-ready behaviors and actions, and associating point values when completed. Certain [...]

Social media has become a critical component of modern brands’ digital marketing strategy no matter how you slice it. The capabilities social media marketing can provide and the huge audiences it aggregates serve as powerful assets for marketers of all brand types and company sizes.   There was a time when social media was more akin to a distraction than a viable marketing channel for businesses, but high adoption rates have changed that. According to Pew Research, 69% of all U.S. adults now use at least one social media platform, up from 5% back in 2005. Looking just at those [...]

By |April 18th, 2019|Content Marketing, Creative, Marketing, Social Media|

Many brands think they have social media down to a science, but they are actually using approaches that keep their social profiles far too distant from other marketing channels. The result? Branded social media activities become more like a fan page than a business trying to use social media to convert customers. According to the Data & Marketing Association, 51% of social media marketers use the channel primarily for brand awareness campaigns, more than any other function combined. Additionally, social media purchase conversions remain extremely low, with 45% of people saying they’ve never bought something based on a social ad. [...]

By |April 4th, 2019|Uncategorized|

Marketing automation sets most of your repetitive marketing functions on cruise control. It allows your company to focus on value added tasks and personable service during critical 1:1 touchpoints.   Yet, many companies out there are not seeing the convenience and scale they need to make marketing automation work for them. Like an unfocused driver on the highway, they set their cruise control to the wrong speed or activate it during the wrong situations. This makes them have to constantly intervene rather than sit back to let the system do the work.   Worst of all, many companies do not [...]

By |March 7th, 2019|Marketing, Social Media|

Marketing in this day and age can get cluttered fast. Like a kitchen cupboard full of appliances, things can often get added to the marketing apparatus without an eye on long-term need or how it fits within the larger organization. Over time, the whole thing can feel like a mess, with some people in the organization wondering how a marketing tool got mixed in there and why someone wanted to have it in the first place.

3 Digital Marketing Mistakes That Are Costing You Money

By |February 21st, 2019|Social Media|

In a small way, marketing is like placing a bet. You invest money on activities that are supposed to pay off by bringing you in more customers or getting existing customers to spend more. When these gambles don’t pay off as expected, you end up with a net loss. And since marketing efforts can often be pricey, many organizations accidentally bet on the wrong horse and end up paying dearly for the lesson. Sometimes, these losses are unavoidable — the result of something you couldn’t have predicted or a pure stroke of bad luck. Other times, they are the result [...]
