Multi-channel exposure: The new way to market

Marketing is, and always has been, about capturing the attention of your potential customers, building brand awareness and eventually converting this attention into business. The methods have changed, from TV, newspaper and radio, to the current world where these things still exist, and a multitude of other options have joined the market. To win at [...]

Measure, reflect, react: The key to marketing success

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying: You can’t change what you can’t measure. This certainly holds weight in many aspects of marketing, especially in the digital space. And while measuring and gathering data is relatively easy in the digital world, it’s how you reflect upon and react to this information, that makes all the difference. [...]

The most important marketing question

You could be forgiven for thinking the most important marketing question of 2019 is “How many social media followers do you have?” It’s not. Now, as always, the most important marketing question you should ask yourself is not about marketing at all. Marketing should exist to support your business goals, so the first thing you [...]

How to reach the right audience

How social media infiltrates the B2B world

Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube weren’t around 20 years ago. Humans have been marketing in some form or other for thousands of years, so it’s no surprise we’re still learning how best to advertise on these new platforms.

Did Facebook just kill the internet with a print magazine?

In what at first glance looks like a sign that the world has gone mad, Facebook recently released a print magazine called Grow. Facebook tells us it’s a logical step that stemmed from business executive events it has been holding in the UK. We already knew that sometimes a screen just doesn’t cut it. The [...]

Content marketing that actually helps your customers

Traditional advertising has the flavour of telling your customers how good you are or what your products can do. Content marketing, in order to be successful, must take the path of providing your customers with something they need. The premise of content marketing is simple: be of use to people and when they are ready [...]

Catching clients in a funnel

As a business, the world of marketing can be daunting, with numerous channels and limited time and budgets. And if you’re not a marketing expert, it’s more confusing trying to understand how to best market a company for optimum results. The other day I was searching the internet for a specific business on Google and [...]

You get what you pay for with free media

When people ask me whether using PR firms and press releases is effective, I generally tell them with free media you really get what you pay for. Which is to say: nothing.
