Today’s digital initiatives are more fluid and far-reaching. They require the ability to tell a cohesive brand/product story — in a more episodic manner — using brief messages and conversations across multiple channels. It’s important for your company to craft a consistent online identity across the various channels in your digital marketing mix.
While the digital marketing adage “content is king” still holds true, the key for an effective website today is to let SEO considerations take the initial lead — then empower them to serve as a functional foundation and content infrastructure that drives engagement and conversions.
With its one-size-fits-all messages, “buckshot” marketing was often an effective approach in the bygone days of mass-media domination.
For decades, the lead generation and management process has been typified by a method you might call The Big Handoff. Once the Marketing function hands off qualified leads to Sales, there is often no end-to-end method for tracking a prospect through the decision journey to ensure that: 1) the prospect feels his/her needs are truly being met; and 2) the prospect is getting the most relevant information, at the right times, to inform and nurture the decision.
