How We Launched An eBook on Marketing Strategy

Friday, August 18, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
We Launched An eBook Marketing Strategy – Here’s How We Did It When the idea for an eBook marketing strategy post popped up in a team meeting, it was discussed, unanimously approved, and quickly put on the content calendar. Once it was deemed I should write it, I began thinking about my intro (or my hook, as the youngsters like to call it). A quote, I thought. Quotes are fun and intriguing. But then I started researching strategy quotes and realized choosing the right quote is sometimes as hard as writing the post! In the end, I settled on a quote from the great Chinese general, military strategist and philosopher Sun Tzu, because ...  

4 Tips to boost Writers and Content Marketers Productivity

Wednesday, August 16, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
When a marketing campaign works, celebrating new leads and increasing sales numbers is the natural tendency. Sometimes, vital components of a marketing campaign – like design, email, content, and SEO – get completely overlooked. Each of these core elements requires the skill of an expert marketer. Unfortunately, many of these skills get underrated or misunderstood. Writing is perhaps the most misunderstood skill of the bunch. We all write in some capacity, which causes people who don’t write well to assume it comes naturally to those who do. But answering an email or sending a text isn’t the same thing as writing creative ...  

Trust is An Active Ingredient of Great Marketing Strategies

Friday, August 04, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
The title of this post could have been posed as a question, but let’s address the answer straight away: Yes, trust is absolutely an active ingredient of great marketing strategies. In fact, I’d argue that a marketing strategy without a heavy dose of trust is unlikely to ever achieve greatness. This is especially true in Cyprus. The reasons are many, but first, I want to discuss where the idea for this topic came from our recent insightful post about Why Time is Not the Enemy of Marketers that really resonated with a lot of readersme. I’ve been on both sides of the “time” coin. Formerly, as a m...  

The Importance of Leadership in A Digital World

Tuesday, July 25, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
Lately, most of WSI’s marketing team attended the HubSpot’s INBOUND conference. WSI organizes as well a yearly Global Convention for the international WSI network, so we are familiar with the benefits of hosting and attending conferences. In particular, the team raved about a talk by renowned speaker and author Simon Sinek. His INBOUND keynote was based on his book, Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t. Intrigued by the boost of energy and passion my team received from Sinek’s session, I began looking into his thoughts on business and leadership to see if I could learn a thing or two as well. I came acros...

Time is Not the Enemy of Marketers

Friday, June 30, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
Our friends over at GetResponse just published a post about how to find time for everything, using a Harry Potter analogy that is related to something I wrote earlier: In my recent post on Marketing and the power of belief, I talked about the difficulties of getting stakeholder buy-in for marketing campaigns. My main point was that full belief is the goal of any campaign pitch because without it, the campaign won’t ever achieve its goals. What I realize now is that many marketing campaigns, strategies and tactics fail to get full buy-in due to one common issue: the length of time they take to implement and deliver results. ...  

3 Tips for High Performing E-Newsletters

Tuesday, June 27, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
Most digital marketers in Cyprus send a periodical e-digest or newsletter to keep current and prospective customers up to date. And that’s a good move: According to the Nielson Norman group, 90% of consumers would rather receive updates by an email newsletter, while only 10% prefer Facebook. And marketers find them useful as well. The number-one use of email marketing is for newsletters (66%), followed by promotional content (54%), and welcome series emails (42%). Since email newsletters are so commonly used in Cyprus companies and pretty well-received by consumers, this should add up to a happy ending, right? Well, ...  

4 Quick & Easy Ways to Boost Traffic to Your Website

  “The Internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow” – Bill Gates – It’s hard to believe that the Microsoft Co-founder made this prediction back in 1999! His analysis has never rung truer. Even a cursory look at the business landscape today makes it obvious that having a strong, visible web presence is absolutely vital to ensuring a steady flow of sales leads to any business. On the Internet, as in the world of business, vying for clicks is as competitive as any marketplace, and your website may need that winning edge in order to overcome the aggressive fight for online supremacy. One of the most co...  

5 Top Metrics Every Digital Marketer Should Know in Cyprus

“Most people use statistics the way a drunkard uses a lamppost, more for support than illumination.” – Mark Twain Though Mark Twain wasn’t talking about digital marketing when he said that, he might have predicted something true, especially in current times when almost every good marketer pays close attention to their analytics reports. No matter the industry in Cyprus, knowing how people are interacting with your online properties can give you as a marketer a clear advantage over your competitors.   The question though is how many marketers and business owners use their analytic data to make meaningful, impactful mar...  

Marketing and the Power of Belief

Saturday, May 27, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
If there’s a trend in my recent posts on the truth about customer loyalty, it’s the running dialogue on what motivates humans to do the things we do. At first, human nature may seem like a heady topic for a humble digital marketing blog. But on second thoughts, marketing is about persuading a group of people (target audience) to do what you want them to do (buy your product/service)! In Neil Gaiman’s novel named American Gods the author develops a relevant concept: the power of belief. In the book, Gaiman’s main character, Shadow Moon, powerfully sums up belief: “It’s what people do. They believe. People populate the darkness;...  

How to Use Marketing Automation to Build a Steady Flow of Leads for Your Business

Friday, May 12, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
For those not familiar with marketing automation, this is a method of using software (and tactics) to help businesses nurture their prospects with personalized content over a period of time, thus increasing the chances of turning targeted prospects into loyal customers. Instead of blasting prospects with unwanted sales messages (that they just end up unsubscribing from), they receive relevant information and have a chance to absorb the benefits of a product/service at their speed, creating a mutually beneficial relationship in the process. At best, marketing automation can generate new revenue stream...

Facts About Customer Loyalty that Impact Your Marketing Strategy

Friday, April 28, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
  I recently wrote a post on the truth about customer loyalty. That truth, which I stumbled across in an excellent article by A.G. Lafley and Roger L. Martin, is that customers aren’t exhibiting loyal behavior when they buy the same products over and over. People return to a product because the buying process is simple and automatic, and they haven’t encountered a reason not to purchase it. In short, it’s good experiences that keep customers “loyal” and bad ones that push them away. What you say about your product or service matters, but not more than the experience it delivers. Once you get your foot in the door, the re...  

4 Reasons Why PPC Is Still Vital To Your Online Lead Generation Strategy

Tuesday, April 18, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
Most marketers are familiar with a traditional sales funnel where leads filter from the top down, encountering various stages of the funnel before converting to customers at the end of the sales process. However, with the increasing impact of social selling and social media, a lead can convert at any stage of the process. As a result, many are beginning to wonder if pay per click (PPC), the more “traditional” of the digital marketing tactics is still an effective method for generating qualified leads for businesses. As a specialist in the 4 pillars of digital marketing – search, site, social and mobile, I am as passionate about...  

7 Tips To Effectively Maximize Your Digital Ad Spend

Monday, April 10, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
All digital marketers know that pay per click advertising is a great tool to enhance site traffic and increase online leads. Its effectiveness can be attributed to the 3 common characteristics that all great marketing campaigns have – it’s targeted, predictable (to a certain extent) and measurable. The challenge arises when clients or marketing managers spend a considerable budget on pay per click advertising but do not see corresponding returns. If your digital advertising spend is not bringing you the results you want, it may be time to take a good, hard look at your current strategy to see if it needs fine-tuning. Th...  

Do You Know the Truth About Customer Loyalty?

Thursday, April 06, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
I thought I did, but then I read something that made me realize I don’t know the truth about customer loyalty. Or I don’t have a mindful understanding of it, even though my subconscious does (and yours does surely too); which is funny, because the truth about customer loyalty has a lot to do with the subconscious. Let me explain. The “something” I read is an article by A.G. Lafley and Roger L. Martin called Customer Loyalty Is Overrated . The following excerpt is the culprit of my aha! moment on the truth about customer loyalty: Research into the workings of the human brain suggests that the mind loves automaticity more tha...

  So, if you have been following me on blogs and LinkedIn, it’s likely you’ve learned a little bit about Paid Search Advertising and how it all works. If not, you can refer to the articles PPC effectiveness: Highly effective PPC tactics are most commonly used and Paid Search: How Does It Work?. Both articles will give you great insight into the fundamentals of Paid Search. But when should you actually use paid advertising? As a digital marketing consultant, I get this question a lot, and in order to answer it effectively, we must run through why using paid search is so important. Below are the top reasons to use paid searc...

Why Social Ads Should Be Part of Your 2017 Marketing Strategy

Friday, March 10, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
I have a friend who, for lack of a better way to describe it, often resists technology. For at least five years, he refused to get a smartphone. Instead, he lagged well behind the societal curve by clinging to his flip-phone. Don’t get me wrong, flip-phones were great and played an important role in the evolution of the cell phone. But there’s something fascinating about shunning a better and more efficient technology.Given how movies like Her and shows like Black Mirror depict the dangerous impact technology has on our society – or that most of us spend more time than we’d like with a screen in front of our face – it’s possible...  

Keep your Content Marketing Strategy up-to-date

Monday, February 27, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
  Over the last six years, content’s relationship with the marketing world has been a wild ride. Content was all the rage during the honeymoon stage. There were late nights, long conversations and no matter what, everything turned out rosy. The content itself didn’t matter – as long as you had more of it than your competitors, you were winning the content marketing battle. As content became mainstream and more companies joined the scramble to publish as often as they could, distribution – and even more frequent content – were the next big tenets of content marketing. But hey, things were still fun so why not enjoy it? A few ye...

Stop Overlooking Website Accessibility

Monday, February 06, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
  For a large number of people, accessibility is a part of everyday life. Accessible designs, devices and services are depended upon by millions of disabled people so they can interact with the world in much the same way a person without disabilities does. For everybody else, accessibility is something we have passive experience with. We notice accessible ramps and seats, but don’t engage with or give them any thought. For people without a disability who also don’t have a disabled friend or family member, it’s very easy to take accessibility for granted, which is probably a safe assumption about most people reading. As the...
