3 Ways Working With A Marketing Agency Is Better Than Going It Alone

Friday, December 07, 2018    Comments (0)    Permalink  
  We recently wrote about an important decision many brands and businesses face: whether to keep marketing in-house or work with an agency. It’s a great post that delves into the various factors that push large companies in one direction of the other. If you’re an executive, in-house marketer or part of an agency, it’s worth the read. In discussing our post internally, however, we realized we left out a large chunk of business owners: the ones who go it alone. Often called solopreneurs, one-man or one-woman shows, this group of smart and courageous individuals is actually g...

How can digital marketing help you grow your business? The way to succeed in business is to know where your customers are and have the ability to promote and interact with them there.

4 Reasons Businesses Should Use Instagram Stories

Friday, November 30, 2018    Comments (0)    Permalink  
  When Instagram Stories first launched in 2016, I thought to myself, “This is just a copycat of Snapchat”. I doubted this new Instagram feature would be able to compete with Snapchat, because “Hey, Snapchat did it first, right?” Two years later, it seems like Instagram has leapfrogged its competitors by constantly innovating and introducing new features to keep users engaged on the platform. But why should businesses use Instagram Stories? Firstly, Instagram Stories are a quick and easy way to engage with other users and followers. According to a study conducted by Microsoft,...

  As you delve into exploring the world of social media for your business, I’m sure these questions have crossed your mind: “Which platforms should I use?” and “How do I know which social media platform is right for my business?” Before you get ahead of yourself and leap onto one or multiple social media platforms for your business, it’s key to establish your business’ marketing goals first.

Advanced Technologies like Chatbots Rely on Traditional Marketing

Wednesday, September 05, 2018    Comments (0)    Permalink  
Chatbots are something that needs to be considered in modern digital marketing campaigns in Cyprus. They are very useful for campaigns where massive inquiries and massive responses are expected but can also be used successfully in low volume campaigns where the few visitors that arrive at a website or a social network page and need to be attended promptly. A correctly programmed chatbot can save time and effort from community managers and can provide a fast response to visitors inquiring about a product or service or an offer or promotion. Nevertheless, when we think about chatb...  

5 Tips for Taking the “Ego” Out of Your Content

Thursday, August 16, 2018    Comments (0)    Permalink  
When it comes to writing content such as blog posts, web pages, landing pages or email campaigns, many companies fall flat on their faces. And it’s not always because of the quality of the writing, the subject matter or even the content strategy. Perhaps the biggest offender when it comes to writing content that doesn’t get the job done is ego. More specifically, it’s injecting healthy doses of ego into your content that inevitably ends up turning off your readers and ruining the engagement factor. Imagine if you were on a first date or met a new business contact and the other p...

Without a doubt, landing pages are an extremely important part of any marketing strategy. After all, a landing page is a remarkably effective way to generate business leads and begin fostering that all-important relationship with your customers. Despite the lead generation potential of landing pages, it took a while for businesses to realize their value. And even until last year, brands were still struggling to create optimized landing pages, making all-too-common mistakes like using home-pages as targeted landing pages. Similar to many digital marketing tactics, truly impactful lan...

Wednesday, July 11, 2018    Comments (0)    Permalink  
When it comes to business growth, the natural thought is to pursue more sales, but the choice between where to get more sales from is often overlooked. Every business owner has a choice between focusing on acquiring new customers or increasing their value to, and therefore value from, existing customers.

You have the company registered, got the finances from the bank, now you’re pulling it all together: your business plan, your unique value proposition and your branding. You have the company name, but what are you going to call your website? In a perfect world, you would just stick a “www” in front of your business name, add a “dot-com” on the end, and your all set.

The Right Data Will Make All the Difference

Monday, May 21, 2018    Comments (0)    Permalink  
When it comes to data and numbers, conventional wisdom tells us to be weary of small sample sizes. For good reason; if you launch a digital marketing campaign and happen to convert a website visitor into a customer on the first day, you can’t realistically expect to convert every person who visits your website. It’s just common sense. However, the difference between a sample size that’s irrelevant and one that actually large enough to be valuable is, ironically, quite small. We recently saw exactly this in a social media campaign we’re running for a client, and it opened our eye...

  If someone was asking what a marketer’s most important goal is, how would be the answer? There is a pretty high likelihood that you answered lead generation, and yes, lead generation is extremely important. But what about the clients you already have? I get it. It’s so easy to fixate on capturing new business. After all, most marketing budgets and resources are spent moving leads through the funnel. But as enticing as new sales are, they shouldn’t distract us from working to keep existing customers as well. Boosting customer retention by just 5% can actually increase your rev...
