Digital marketing agencies like Markentum are known for their expertise in online marketing trends, best practices, and strategies. It can be tedious, time-consuming, and probably something you’d like to leave to a team of experts to handle alone. However, one of the best ways to get the most out of your digital marketing agency is to be involved!
“If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.” This quote is attributed to Peter Drucker, although there is a dispute about its attribution. I first heard it from Markentum CEO and my friend, Tom Hurlburt, many years ago.
When you hear the words “data-driven marketing,” what comes to mind? Maybe a bit of initial disinterest and expectations of long-winded conversations about numbers? Perhaps, the memory of seeing a graph depicting what you were told was a “good” example of healthy growth without understanding why or for what reason?
From search results to social media efforts and everything in between, content is what can convert a website visitor into a long-term customer. The key to effective content is to provide information that solves a problem your audience may have, answers a question, or educates them on a relevant issue.
On average, do you know how many interactions you received on a post about your activities? Or, how many clicks you received on “Schedule a Tour” focused posts? When implementing a social media marketing strategy for your community, it is crucial to leave room for changes within the plan as you start to see the data unfold.
As digital trends continue to change, and social media platforms become a more dominant tool, content marketing continues to be at the forefront. If you look at the digital marketing landscape, it’s multiple networks, tools, and websites pushing out the same thing – content.
Whether you’re selling cupcakes, running a hair salon, or operating a senior living community, being able to get a report of your marketing efforts is essential. At Markentum, we believe that monthly reports provide crucial information about past performance, current performance, and what your business should be doing in the future.
In a world where technology and data are constantly evolving, it is important to evaluate if your business is properly measuring your digital marketing analytics. According to an article on Inc.com, it is reported that between 60% and 73% of all data within a company is unused. It is crucial that your organization is not only accessing your digital analytics properly, but that this data is utilized in ways that benefit your organization.
Before the age of the internet, marketing rewarded those brands that were the loudest and most repetitive. If you could get your brand of cigarettes into the JCPenney catalog with an attractive doctor saying, “It’s great!”, your brand would most likely take off and be gobbled up by every household in America. But, times have changed.
