Back in the day, traditional marketing efforts might have won over the crowd. You may have even been able to get away without an online marketing strategy! However, in today’s digital age, not having a marketing strategy can immensely hurt your business.
Over the years, social media has had a significant impact on our daily lives. Not only has it been used for leisurely purposes, but it has become a useful marketing tool for businesses as well. Social media is here to stay and continues to evolve. Since 2016 is almost over and the new year is quickly approaching, it is important to stay up-to-date with the latest social media trends in order to integrate these changes into your marketing strategy.
Almost daily I come into contact with a business that is using a gmail address. Occasionally I even still see Hotmail or AOL. Yikes. If you have a website and you are not using a branded email for that domain, you are making a big mistake. What is a branded email? It’s an email address that is domain specific. For example let’s use Macy’s department store. What would you think if they sent you an email from email@example.com instead of firstname.lastname@example.org?
Around the web consumers are constantly hungry for content, with long form content still proving to be successful. In a world full of content, how do you ensure consumers are viewing your content?
Well that’s simple, give them an appetizer to their daily dose of content.
With Instagram en route to becoming the most used social media platform on a daily basis, the use of high-quality images, across all your content, is more important than ever.
If you struggle with content marketing, you’re not alone. Not knowing how to produce it or where to publish it, you might feel a little lost, but that’s okay because a lot of people do! When it comes to your business, you want to make an impact with your content, so worrying about these things are a good thing. When it comes to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, there’s always that question of what goes where, or can it all be the same? The answer is no, it shouldn’t be the same because each of those platforms are different.
