At last, we’ve seen a smidge of normality with face-to-face networking, events and meetings appearing in the second half of this year, but no one could have predicted the ongoing pandemic situation and remote way of working. It’s safe to say, marketing in 2021, has still very much been online.

We are delighted to have been shortlisted as finalists in the Marketing Agency of the Year (under 20 employees) category at this year’s North East Marketing Awards.

Videos are now a very popular choice when it comes to consuming content and many professional services and B2B firms are using video as part of their marketing strategy to raise their profile and increase conversions.

With the ever-increasing technological advancements, especially through automation, organisations are risking falling into the trap of presenting themselves as robots rather than humans. Social media, in particular, is flooded with content, making it increasingly difficult to stand out and connect to a target audience. Covid 19 especially has made us more distant than ever, with endless Zoom calls replacing face to face meetings and events, businesses may have started to lose the ‘human touch’ and now is the time to embrace a more personal experience to reconnect with their target audience.

CRO is a marketing acronym you may have heard of or read about. But what is it and do you need it? Let’s break it down into its component parts to understand it better…

Whilst it does take time and effort to boost SEO rankings, you need to have great content to attract prospective clients to your website and keep them there! It makes more sense to invest time in producing great content and achieve results than wasting time on writing poor content and seeing no return.
