Digital marketing is one of the fastest and the most money making trends for advertisers today then they were a few years ago. In fact, according to the director of business development at Reptile, Jonathan Laberge, to initiate a data driven or result-driven digital strategy to day is the best possible solution to get a companies numbers up since it is solely based on metrics and analytics from a companies’ website. Additionally, initiating these long-term relationships with a company’s customers or clients can be critical for a result-driven digital strategy, Laberge claims in his Forbes article.
Top tech trends
Likewise, businesses need to be on top of the most advanced technological trends daily, especially if they want to have their customers returning. When consumers want the best product on the market, they are going to go mobile. With smartphones and tablets as two of the most convenient ways to find information, they’ll go to their mobile first.
Interaction; media channeling
With that said, the interaction of various types of “media channels,” it’s best that a company sees to it that they get what their customers are looking for online or on the market. What’s being suggested, in fact, by Laberge of Reptile is to figure out the results of a company’s ads according to the company’s result-driven digital strategies which work to bring in more sales to the company so as nothing will go to ‘waste’ in ad dollars. There was more than $4 billion on marketing and advertising spent on marketing in the past couple of years. It wasn’t result-driven or data-driven marketing which means that marketers world wide went in “blind” and relied strictly on “hits and misses.”
Target and hit; don’t miss
For example, when you efficiently create a target campaign as a result of sales attributions, than you’ll make those sales work for you as a result of various channeling. You’re advertising dollars will tag along with customers. If they go to a music online app store, then you’re targeting those music lovers’ by way of marketing music induced advertisements. Laberge claims in this strategy: “…Track how many people saw your online posts, how many people visited and purchased on your website, and how long a sales resource has spoken on the phone with a potential client…[it’ll] determine how to dictate your money.”
Laberge suggests when ‘you attempt to track your customers or potential clients’ online posts, for instance, you’ll be able to see what is being purchased on your company’s website. This strategy is “who purchased, what they purchased, and the time it took for that customer to get off the phone with your company’s sales reps after he/she purchased. In other words, results is what drives a marketer to advertise according to what the customer wants so there isn’t any time wasted on ads nor money being wasted in the marketing department. Analyzing the website metrics and analytics is key to data driven results.
Finally, knowing this data will be the ‘numbers or sales’ which are important in any marketing plan. And as Laberge suggests, it’ll determine ‘how to invest your money’ into your company’s marketing strategies for your digital online store or business, thereby allowing your employees to fully understand who and what, why and when it’s being sold.
