Cross-Media Strategy and Its Role in the Success of a Marketing Campaign

Monday, December 18, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
How often have you heard the term multi-channel thrown around as a marketing jargon? Quite often, I bet! You may have also heard about the concept of “cross-media” used whenever a marketer has presented a strategy. In today´s advertising world, campaigns are being designed to constitute a mix of “traditional” and “digital” media. Agencies understand that consumers and buyers are impacted by several kinds of media. Therefore, they are more frequently combining both traditional and digital media into their campaigns. This is referred to as cross-media campaigns. Do keep in mind ...  

5 Secrets to Generating Leads with Content: Blogging Best Practices for Small Businesses

Monday, December 11, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
Worldometers reports that 2,229,710 blogs were written today. And, it’s only 10:h35 in the morning, Cyprus Time! One blog is published every second, 59.3 million every month. So how many blogs are published every year? Do the math! The point I am trying to make is that there is a staggering amount of content available on the internet. Between 1994, when the first blog was created, until now, the online space has been flooded with content. With the popularity of blogs as an inbound marketing tool showing no signs of abetting, all businesses small, medium, and big continue to ad...

Monday, December 04, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
Most digital agencies in Cyprus promote themselves as omnichannel marketing experts in their briefs and creative pitches. Omnichannel marketing and other similar terms are the current buzzwords in the marketing world. Some marketers are doubtful, and may think might think these concepts are short-lived, more of fads. But when approached right, you will understand that it is not so. So, what is omni-channel marketing? Well, according to Sara Skrmetti, Senior Director, Social in MediaMath, it means aligning your technology, data, metrics and organizational structure around a sin...

Wednesday, November 29, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
  Google has released the new Chrome browser version 62, which is estimated to affect 60% of Web browsers. One of the primary focus of this update is a warning related to missing or improperly configured security certificates. Users who access any website, which does not have an HTTPS certificate installed, will be notified that the website is considered “Not Secure”. This means that if a website does not have a properly set up or configured security certificate, there can be negative rank and organic traffic consequences as this warning will undoubtedly have an im...  

E-Commerce in Cyprus and the EU Consumer rights Directive

Monday, November 27, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
From June 13th 2014, the EU has strengthened and harmonised the Consumer protection rules. The Consumer Rights directive applies the same way in all EU countries (including Cprus!) which means that consumers europe-wide can always be sure about the rules that apply when cross-border purchases are made. In the same way, traders, e-commerce owners and other businesses in EU countries also know what they have to provide in terms of consumer rights.   What does the directive mean for e-shops in Cyprus?   So called hidden charges are banned as well as other cost tra...

Friday, November 24, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
Your landing page plays a vital role in the lead generation process. This is most often the place that visitors will land when finding your PPC ad, clicking your Facebook post, even finding you in a search. Whether or not visitors sign up and become leads will always come down to their initial experience with your business. Despite the benefits that landing pages have to offer, many businesses treat these pages as an after-thought. Your landing page gives visitors their very first introduction to what you have to offer. In just a few seconds, those visitors will either be intere...

AI-first marketing will perfect customer experience

Saturday, November 18, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
In the midst of all the hype about artificial intelligence (AI), you may occasionally pause to ask: “What’s new here?” After all, did we not have machine learning applications 10 (or maybe even 20) years ago? In the marketing domain specifically, you may be asking how today’s AI is different from, say, an application that has been personalizing real-time content insertion for several years. The best way to answer that could be to consider the evolution of AI in the areas of driving and transportation. In the past, the applications of AI included drive...  

How Will Artificial Intelligence Influence Marketing Decisions in the Future?

Wednesday, November 15, 2017    Comments (0)    Permalink  
Although the term “artificial intelligence” or AI has been popular for decades, recent discussions on “cognitive learning,” “cognitive computing,” and “cognitive algorithms” have made everyone more conscious of the implications AI has on our daily lives. AI is one of those topics that generate contradictory feelings. On the one hand, we are impressed by the concept. We are also enthusiastic about the opportunities AI can open up as it touches all kinds of lives. On the other hand, though, there is fear. The movie industry has played a crucial role in not only familiarizing AI bu...

I hate to say this, I really do, but I’ll say it anyways. A significant number of companies in Cyprus are, as of today, losing customers. And they don’t even realize it’s happening. Why?

Let me explain: Way back in 2015 during the brief run of our podcast, WSI’s co-founder, Dan Monaghan, discussed the value of businesses keeping their eyes on the digital horizon. To quote Dan directly, he said that, “Being aware of the digital horizon – even if it’s way off in the distance – is one of the best things a ...

Time flies, doesn’t it? It seems like only yesterday I wrote my marketing predictions post for 2017. Yet here we are, less than three months from Christmas and then onto 2018. This time of year tends to get busy, with preparations for Thanksgiving, Halloween and Christmas taking up much of our extra time and energy.
