Whether you’re prepared or not, the Digital Age of marketing is upon us. To avoid getting lost in the crowd, it is imperative to transition your brand into the digital world. Digiday “The Authority on Digital Media, Marketing and Advertising” published an article last week that explored the battle of brands to stay relevant and embrace digital. Here’s what we learned from their article:
1. BE CUSTOMER-FOCUSED
Building relationships and keeping the customer as your main focus has always been key in traditional marketing and continues to be true in digital marketing as well.
2. BE OPEN TO CHANGE
Be flexible to try to new things. Don’t get lost in the printed collateral clutter. Make your presence known online and off.
3. TAKE RISKS
No one is ever remembered for “playing it safe.” Sure, it might be a risk to try something out-of-the-ordinary —but all press is good press, right?
4. ANALYTICS ARE YOUR FRIEND
Don’t just make reports, read and learn from them. Listen to customer complaints and suggestions, then makes changes.
5. DIGITAL FOR ALL
Digitial should be infused into all aspects of your brand, not just here and there.
