Installing The Digital Marketing Cog Into Your Business Engine
Think of your business as an engine (a finely tuned one, no doubt)! If you introduce a new part or component into any engine, it will affect how the rest of the system performs. This principle is certainly true when looking at the explosive growth of digital marketing and its integration into your marketing and business functions. Let’s look at your business holistically and ensure that any digital integration assists and augments your existing business engine – a new part installed to increase performance! Digital VS Traditional Marketing – No Need To Argue Your business now has access to an already massive and ever growing digital marketing toolkit – a huge array of methods to interact with, understand and sell to customers online. Pulling back the curtain into this world means that you can dispense with traditional methods in future and bask in the warm success web based marketing offers? Not quite! Traditional methods should rather be combined with and enhanced by digital options rather than being dispensed with. These methods have not been made obsolete by any means. Depending on the size of your business, the old reliables of TV, radio and print advertising can still be highly effective…

Trapped in a lift with your competitors and a hot lead, what happens next?
We’ve all heard of the ‘elevator pitch’. It’s the bite size, 10 second pitch that all businesses and brands should have at the ready. It boils down your offering to it’s simplest, stand out terms. Let’s say you and your competitors are trapped in an elevator for real and a huge potential customer is there and ready to deal. You open your mouth to wow them and then you and your four competitors recite the exact same thing. This may get you thinking ‘Wait, how exactly ARE we better?’ You’re ready to find your key differentiator… Repeat after me… How to bottle your lightning Complete these simple sentences to see if you can narrow down your differentiator “We offer …….. that other competitors cannot match” “We aid customers that need …. better than anyone else” Maybe that wasn’t so easy? Don’t worry, you’re not alone in having to think a little deeper to capture that elusive spark of advantage. In the modern market, it is increasingly difficult to differentiate yourself clearly on product superiority alone. Sure, companies like Apple can, but mostly it’s the intangible elements that fit together to make a company the leader, or an also-ran. In other words, often…

Irish Bank Sector – Social Media Analysis #BOTB
Continuing our ‘Battle of the Brands’ social media analysis, this week we’re looking at the Irish Bank Sector. We’ve compared the biggest Irish banks across Facebook and Twitter. We then analysed their data and highlighted some interesting insights, have a look below to see what we found. Facebook Analysis What we discovered Only 2 banks are actually on Facebook, RaboDirect and Bank Of Ireland while AIB have a GAA site BOI posts about sponsored popular culture like Leinster Rugby & Dragons’ Den Rabo posts financial tips & advice, which engages fans and helps build trust Posting is often inconsistent, a week will frequently pass without content Key Insight For banks, Facebook is an effective channel for creating a human connection with customers. RaboDirect is very adept at creating that connection. Their posts are engaging and helpful to their members. They don’t push promotions or products, instead they educate their fans in the area of finance, offering tips and tricks. This helps to build trust with their fans. Bank of Ireland uses Facebook to promote what they do, trying to engage with fans via sponsored popular culture. While this is good for brand awareness, perhaps fans will view them as a…
