Digital Marketing integrates business process and technology to drive higher-value lead generation and customer retention through data-driven demand creation.
Using these methodologies you'll create higher value leads and higher value customers while becoming the thought-leader in your space.
My typical client includes senior "C" level executives and small and medium size enterprises who want their organizations to deliver on the promise of Internet Marketing.
After an initial consultation I'll design an end-to-end Internet Marketing system that meets your needs, requirements and commitment and train your organization to use it.
Digital Marketing focused organizations have the ability to become truly "customer-centric" because Digital Marketing focuses the organization on discovering what customers want and delivering them the targeted information they need - when and where they need it. When done correctly this is marketing that builds lasting customer relationships.
Shouldn't that be your marketing goal?
Digital Marketing is 21st Century Marketing. The way you must be doing it. The question is - when will you begin?
Digital Marketing is a strategy that combines and incorporates various aspects of SEO (Search Engine Optimization), Content Creation and Delivery and Social Media Marketing. This is personalized marketing that earns you new leads and customers because you've become the trusted thought leader in your space.
Digital Marketing is a skill set that must be learned, understood and implemented with commitment to the principles and to a plan. It is not a tactic or an activity, it's a strategy.
Digital Marketing's relative time commitment is not that different from traditional marketing methods - in fact Digital may require less time and it's certainly more cost effective. Digital Marketing merely shifts where and when organizations spend their resource and the tools you require are, for the most part, free or low-cost Web based solutions.
This is marketing that is scalable and it can be implemented by any organization or individual. Digital Marketing supplements or even replaces traditional (and expensive) "outbound" waterfall methods with an insight driven strategy that is far less costly and far more effective.
Digital Inbound Marketing has got to be a vital core competency in any organization. If you are outsourcing any part of your digital marketing effort including SEO or Social Media Management, you're making a big mistake.
I've been a proponent of outsourcing for over four decades. I have always believed that if a function is not a core competency that outsourcing provides many benefits. But Digital Marketing is not a function you should outsource - not any of it, and I've been telling this to clients for a long time. If you outsource Digital Marketing functions to agencies you are giving away digital assets of tremendous long-term value.
An important new article from McKinsey & Co. illustrates exactly why.
To quote McKinsey "Most companies rely on digital agencies for things like optimizing search marketing. In such cases, they may be ceding digital capital, since they never develop a full understanding of consumer segments or what inspires a customer who searches for their products. Seeing such capability building as an investment may change the logic of using third parties. Similarly, when companies look to established tech players for partnerships shoring up weaknesses, they should be cautious: some seemingly high performers may be on the wrong path and could burden you with outmoded standards and platforms. Alternatively, if you deal with strong players, you may be leaving yourself vulnerable by letting them lead."
That's it in a nutshell. It's your digital capital that's at stake. You've got to build, retain and own your own digital assets. If you don't you'll soon regret it.
