As we close in on the end of another year, thoughts turn to thankfulness and the gifts we’ve received this year. Pandemic or not, Metta Digital Marketing has a lot to be grateful for. In a pandemic, we would be remiss if we didn’t say thanks to the community heroes: health care workers, first responders, teachers, cashiers, baristas, reporters, and other service workers. The past two years have been tough for everyone, and these people kept our community functioning. Be gentle, patient, and kind to those who show up to do the jobs on which we all depend...kindness matters. What’s on your gratitude list this holiday season?
Whether we are paying attention or not, seasons change, the world continues to evolve, and technology constantly changes with it. The state of your company’s website reflects the state of the company. Is your website up-to-date and accurately, effectively representing your business?
It’s no secret: successful marketing is a combination of creativity and math that has the power to influence perceptions and actions. We tend to focus on the creative side of marketing, because that’s what makes us smile, laugh, think, or buy. However, as digital marketers, we must place equal emphasis on the math, or metrics, side of the equation.
Growth is a goal of every business, whether growth in products/services, clientele, or revenue. However, growing pains are a real thing in every instance. Business growth involves capacity in terms of production, skills, and time, as well as prioritizing profitable work where time = revenue. For us, that means more websites to design, more social media management, more analytics reporting, more marketing strategy consulting, and more hands on deck.
Sure, you market your business online. You built a basic website 5 years ago, have Facebook and LinkedIn pages, and when you have time, you post updates or pictures. Isn’t that what digital marketing is all about? Well, not quite.
Loyal customers are worth the time and effort you put into providing great customer experiences. They tend to be repeat customers, refer your company to others, and leave positive reviews and social media comments. Their kind words deliver social proof of your business’s quality and credibility.
This past year has been hard. For all of us. At Metta Digital Marketing, we are grateful for the loyal clients with whom we’ve adjusted to new plans and new ways of conducting business. Continuing to work together has been mutually beneficial; we really are all in this together.
You want to improve your company’s rankings on search engines to help grow your business. Everyone wants to be first, but what does it take to be a top listing? SEO, SEM, PPC…what’s what and what is better? SEO and SEM share the same goal — driving quality online traffic to your brand, or business. The digital marketing alphabet soup has a lot of ingredients.
2020 not only changed our daily habits, but the chaotic year also changed the way most of us conduct business and interact as consumers. On-line sales skyrocketed, as people spent more time on social media, streaming services, and videoconferencing. Some of those changes are likely to last, as consumers embraced the convenience and ease of digital purchasing, working, and playing. Take a look at digital marketing trends to watch in 2021.
Nine months into a pandemic we didn’t expect to last this long, we now know we’ll be starting 2021 with several more months to go. During this time, consumer behavior has changed significantly and in ways that are likely to endure. Your business has probably made shifts in operations, but have your marketing tactics and messaging kept pace? Metta Digital Marketing can help you identify and implement strategies to start the new year strong.
