Social Media

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.

Videos can help to improve engagement and are a useful tool for repurposing work that has already been done such as a blog, website content, email newsletters, presentations, testimonials, case studies and social media.

As long-term LinkedIn members, we’ve noticed many changing trends across the platform, including what to post, how to engage with others and why you're there in the first place. Everyone has an opinion. But we ask 'Has LinkedIn lost its way?'

Google Analytics is a great way to see how much website traffic you are getting but how do you track when someone has completed a specific action on your website?

With websites having to become more interactive, user friendly and ultimately quickly hook visitors in, many organisations are now investing time and money into conversion rate optimisation (CRO) – see our earlier blog explaining CRO.

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.

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.

Today, most people would agree that thriving businesses need to invest in marketing to attract new clients, maintain existing relationships, raise profile and stand out from the crowd.

With 2020 being such an extreme and difficult year, many businesses struggled financially, and marketing may have been the first thing to be cut or stopped.

As much as we aspire to be like a social media influencer, we aren’t all exactly comfortable in front of a camera, especially when we are talking about ourselves. With the ever-increasing digital shift and need to communicate online as well as the pressure to keep ahead of the game and bring our marketing to life, being in front of camera is now a necessity. Creating video content can generate business opportunities as well as build brand awareness, generates social proof and boost search engine optimisation (SEO).
