1. Be Ready with Responsive Web Design
We are all consumers. We buy things - some that we need, and many others we don't - but we all do it in some form. So there shouldn't be any debate from consumers about how shopping has changed. Today consumers can shop from their mobile phone, purchase their entire Christmas shopping lists online and have it delivered to their door.
People are doing more shopping and browsing from their smartphones and tablets, which means you need your brand's web properties to be responsive and adaptive to whatever screen they're being viewed on. Consumers are constantly looking for information while on the go so having a fully responsive web design is incredibly important to your brand.
2. Prepare for Success with a Social CRM
One of the disadvantages of advanced technologies is there can be a lot of noise and distraction. If you learn how to use technology effectively you can overcome the problems. Getting people to listen can be an issue, but by developing your Social Relationship Management you can improve your ability to engage, react and listen to what your customers are saying about your brand. And if you have access to what your customers want, you can quickly adapt and expand your strategy to better suit their needs.
3. Become an Adaptive Content Marketer
The path to your customers' hearts is still a steady stream of engaging, helpful content that answers questions they have, and delights them with information they didn't even realise they were looking for. The additional benefit of consistent content is that is helps you accumulate data on consumers - data you can then analyse and use to tweak your content and digital marketing strategy to achieve optimal results, and listen to your followers and advocates and provide them with what they really want.
4. Review and Improve Using Data Analytics
The sheer volume and control of data collection makes digital marketing the most measurable form of marketing and the most effective. The reality is the first marketing campaign you launch probably won't be your most successful. Because the next one should be better, and then the next one after that even better. If you properly use the data you collect, you should be able to adapt and expand your campaigns to greater heights.
There are a range of tools that can provide the direction you need to adapt and improve your online marketing so you can win new clients, and increase repeat business.
