5 Reasons Why Social Media Is Such A Powerful Marketing Tool

Don’t Leave Social Media Out of Your Marketing Strategy! Here’s Why.

If there’s one constant thing about life—it’s change. Years ago, if a business wanted to advertise their services to the local area, they’d purchase an ad in the newspaper or run a commercial on the radio or TV.

Today, we can no longer guarantee that your audience is listening to the radio or flipping through channels. Some might be there, but many are not. But what we can guarantee is that most of your current or future customers are on social media.

In fact, half of the world’s population is already using social media, with 11 new people joining every second. You can reach new and existing audiences through organic postings or ads that target users already interested in your industry in your area.

In this article, we’ll look at how sharing on social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and more can help businesses, and five reasons why you should include it in your marketing strategy.

Blogging: Why It’s Important & Helps Businesses Stay Relevant

Do Businesses Really Need Blogging? Yes, Yes They Do!

What do a toothpaste brand, a furniture company, and a farm equipment manufacturer have in common? They all have a blog on their website! And if you own a business, you should start a blog, too. 
But “Why?” you might ask. Why do Crest toothpasteIKEA, and John Deere write a blog? Does anyone actually read it, and does it do any good for marketing? 

The answer to all those questions is a resounding “Yes.” 6.9 billion searches are sent to Google every day, and 70,000 searches every second. Every month, 135,000 people search, “Why is the sky blue?” and 49,500 people ask, “Why do cats purr?” Imagine how many people must be searching about home or commercial technology in your area. When they hit ‘Enter,’ does your website show up? 

That’s what blogging is all about. It connects your company to an audience that’s already looking for information and, ultimately, your services. Below, we’ll dive into why blogging matters and how it can help your AV and custom integration business thrive.

You’ve Got Mail: Why Email Marketing Still Matters

Email marketing is one of the most effective ways to attract new customers and retain existing clients

Is email marketing still relevant in a digital environment dominated by social media posts, interactive ads, and mobile campaigns? While email is one of the oldest forms of digital marketing, in recent years the strategy feels like it’s become overshadowed by newer, flashier ways to grab peoples’ attention online, like social media and Google Advertising

Don’t get us wrong — these strategies are important as part of an integrated digital marketing plan. But the data (and consumer input) reveals that robust email marketing has yet to fall out of style. Email marketing is one of the most cost-effective strategies to put your products and services in front of consumers, has the highest return on investment of all digital marketing channels, and is unmatched in its ability to drive direct traffic to your website or landing page. 

And your clients are on email — more than 90% of people over the age of 17 use email, and 99% of consumers check their email daily (some admit to checking over 20 times a day). 

Trust us when we say that email marketing isn’t dead — far from it. Keep reading to learn why.
