Featuring in the North East England Chamber Knowledge blog, we explain why it is important to maintain marketing momentum, but also to keep an eye on the constantly evolving marketing tools, tactics and strategies.
Are you bringing your marketing to life?
2019 has seen a surge in the use of video on social media platforms and it is now a focal point in many marketing strategies.

Marketing life does go on
When I returned from maternity leave after 9 months, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect in the world of marketing, social media and digital marketing.
Apart from coming back to work and remembering how to write an email (to name but a few basic functions), I was apprehensive about the pace and would change be so great that it’s completely new and different. Would there be more social media platforms, would email marketing end, would automation define everything?
Thankfully, AI hasn’t defeated us yet and even though a lot of the basics are the same, there are some noticeable changes over a relatively short time, particularly with social media.

Firms who invest in effective digital marketing such as social media, pay per click (PPC) and search engine optimisation (SEO) can often see great results within a relatively short space of time. Through easily trackable analytics, it is easy to see the actual impact of this increased marketing activity. In turn, brand awareness grows, the number of new enquiries increases and the business expands. But what happens if you stop marketing because you're too busy?
