Over the last decade, a new term has arrived in website design. That is "hero banner" or "hero image".
I have noticed a few different ways that a hero banner has been defined. Some have defined it as a home page or a main call-to-action, but that's really not what it is. It is part of a home page (or other important landing pages) and should usually contain a phenomenal call-to-action. So, why should you be concerned with this aspect of design?
We talk a lot about business to consumer(B2C) marketing. But what about business to business(B2B)? What are the difference in a marketing strategy when selling to businesses as opposed to selling to Tom, Dick or Harry? Well, I'll tell you what the differences are, not much. Consider the old adage - Apples to Apples.
When you are marketing your product or server to businesses, remember that real people make up that business, and appealing to those real people is what is important. Just like in B2C, the selling point of your service or product to a business is "how does it help me?" (As in, the how your product/service makes a business more profitable/productive.)
As some of you may know, Tribute media recently became not only a Hubspot user, but a Hubspot Partner. We can't rave enough how much we love this tool. Everything from the dashboard to the reporting. It's robust, logical and extremely user friendly.
The Hubspot social media tool is one that we have found an amazing amount of value on, and we have used tools like Hootesuite, Flitter and Buffer (just to name a few) so we know what is out there. Below are some of the key points on why the Hubspot social media tool blows the other platforms out of the water.
Years ago I worked in the office equipment industry. The companies I worked for sold copiers and printers to businesses, organization, etc. During my tenure at my last copier company, HP rolled out a new copier line. They simply relabeled a line from Konica Minolta.
Our company decided to pick up this line and sell it.
It wasn't a very good copier line. Which is probably why the product line was scrapped after a short while.
I remember asking our rep, "Who is your target market?"
Back came the response, "We sell to small & medium business, departments in large businesses and large businesses."
"So," I said, "you sell to everyone?"
If you are trying to run an effective online advertising campaign of any kind, then it certainly pays to look into creating a good landing page experience for your potential customers. A landing page is simply a stand alone page that is created for a specific purpose of converting a potential customer that is geared toward a specific ad group or campaign. While a conversion can mean many different things, the conversion rate of your ad campaign is a definitive number that can mean the difference between a successful and unsuccessful campaign.
What’s in a share? We are all familiar with the term “Viral”, but not everyone truly understands what it takes for content on the web to go viral. The ultimate goal for the content you post on your social media channels should not be to just target those who are already in your network. By focusing exclusively on the people who already like your page, you are missing out on a number of opportunities to reach new users in new markets.
There are many ways of keeping in contact with your customers through technology. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that the more times you connect with your customers, the more likely they are to remember you and choose your company's product and/or services over a competitor.
In marketing, the official term is called ‘touches’ – it is how many times your customers have to see/interact with your company before they purchase a product or service from you.
