Three Ways Digital Marketing Will Change Post COVID-19

For the first weeks of COVID-19, it felt like the end of the world was indeed finally here. The stock market was falling, companies were laying people off, people were forced to work from home, grocery shelves emptied, and, almost every country in the world had infections and deaths soaring - there seemed to be no end in sight. Many of us who have been through other crises before could not help make comparisons of past crises -- the dot-com bust of 2000, 9/11 in 2001, the financial crisis of 2008. However, even the most…

Understanding Your Customers and Prospect During Uncertain Times

Everybody’s dealing with the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak. This public health pandemic is having a critical impact on supply and demand. It’s times like these that marketers need to be even more aware and sensitive to the expectations of their customers and prospects.

Forget the “Two Minute Rule” for Video – a Good Story Will Drive Engagement

Of all business videos in 2018, 73% were less than two minutes long, reflecting a 33% drop in length compared to 2017. Countless Digital Marketing studies urged marketers and advertisers to hold their videos to a two-minute maximum because attention spans are shrinking. Studies even showed that two minutes was the magic number—the length of time most likely to evoke the highest engagement. But the pendulum is swinging, and, frankly, those studies were overhyped. The content should dictate the length, not some arbitrary…

MarTech Primers: Inbound Sales Vs Inbound Marketing

Sales and Marketing - two departments always in conflict about demarcating their specific roles and responsibilities. Being an Inbound Marketer and a Specialist in Content Marketing, I can very well understand the root cause of this problem. Many companies do not differentiate between these two functions. Over and above that, many companies have a single team to perform both. Too much of bashing, isn’t it? Let us focus on the topic i.e. how is Inbound Sales different from Inbound Marketing and how these two functions can…

The disrupter became disrupted. Brandless is not the only Direct to Consumer (D2C) brand experiencing the negative effects of oversaturated markets. In the past, D2C brands relied heavily on Performance Marketing, with 98% of such brands believing that…

Connecting With Customers on the Ground Is Not yet Dead

As our lives become busier and online shopping continues to disrupt the traditional retail sector, you only have to look at the decline of our high streets to know that there is a revolution going on in the way that we shop.

B2B Marketers: It’s Time to Start Leveraging OOH

B2B marketers have never been accused of being flashy or adventurous. Most of the time, they focus on driving measurable results in the most efficient way possible. That usually entails Content Marketing, Account-Based Marketing (ABM) or even direct Mail. Out-of-home (OOH) advertising, on the other hand, has traditionally been thought of as a consumer Marketing tactic. But that is changing, especially for technology companies. Businesses like Zoom, ZoHo, Zendesk, Cisco and Salesforce—to name just a few—have all invested…
