We all have responsibilities, whether it is to our family, financial institutions, the community in which we live or even to ourselves, living life according to the personal ethics we have chosen. Your website also must live up to the obligations you deemed necessary from its initial launch. As time marches on, many businesses lose sight as to the importance of their online presence. I’m not talking about how active your company is on social media or how frequently you blog, rather, I’m referring to the duty your website has to lead your audience to actually choose, and then purchase your product.

The Internet has certainly changed nearly everything we ever knew about marketing … but not everything. Today I want to talk about something that many of you already know, but few actually practice: The art of carving out a market niche. In today’s information-overloaded world, if you say three things you’ve said nothing. The ability to focus your message has always been a marketing recipe for success.

4 Cutting Edge Marketing Strategies To Ignite Your Sales

There is an increasing overlap between what we call marketing and traditional sales. The change in how buyers shop – online searches, browsing your website, talking to one another (i.e. with your current residents and other prospects) on social channels – requires that you begin ‘selling’ before you ever have the chance to speak in person to a prospect.

True, marketing has always been (or at least should be) sales in print, but it is in that area between marketing and sales where you have the highest potential to capture the attention and hearts of your buyers. The trouble is that most builders, retailers or communities are often unaware of these online prospects, and so believe that we can’t sell to those we can’t see. Well, just because you can’t see them does not mean that they can’t see you, or that they aren’t paying keen attention to what you have to show and say.

They are there. They are watching, avidly consuming what information you give them. Give them the right message and content, delivered in the way they want to consume it, and you’ll eventually see them pull into your parking lot or picking up their phone to you to engage with you in person.

Why Your Marketing Company Should Do More Than Just Web Design

Posted September 23, 2014 by admin

The company you hire to manage your Internet marketing should be a comprehensive, strategic marketing machine — not a one-size-fits-all vehicle that regurgitates the same boring website template, with little to no regard for impact or results, for every business in every industry. Not all businesses have the same goals or offer the same products and services, so it’s ridiculous for your advertising agency not to tailor your strategies to your industry and needs. A reliable, results-driven marketing company takes the time to understand your industry as well, if not better, than their own. Continue Reading →

Website design, the centerpiece of your marketing

The Internet has become the gravitational center of the marketing world, and your website is the centerpiece of your Internet success. A good website provides more traffic and allows you to easily connect with your customers. It should hold the attention of all visitors, not serve as their first stop before moving elsewhere. If your website isn’t doing this or, worse, you don’t even have one, then you’re not using the Internet’s power to its fullest potential. And, you’re missing out on substantial opportunities to grow your business!  Continue Reading →
