More Reasons to have Custom Web Design

  1. Custom web design is always and should be SEO friendly. Hence it becomes one of the best methods to rank higher in all the search engines.
  2. As for a general website (basic website), poor search engine ranking usually will become an issue, but when the custom web design approach is applied, it will have a higher possibility of skipping this issue.
  3. On the other hand, building a website that is custom fit with all of your desire contents and creativity, you can then fairly compete with your major online rivals in the search engine ranking race and you will have higher chance to topped them over!
  4. With the idea of implementing custom web design approach, you tend to also highlight the importance of your different products and services that you offer. Thus, you can also suggest better pricing compared with your competitors.
  5. You may need to get a professional web design company to help you uplift your brand image and ensure that you are getting the best results and outcome that is value for money.
  6. You can juggle between saving time or increasing revenue.
  7. Hiring freelance web designers may not seem to be a good idea. As they are probably less committed or perhaps lack of experiences in terms of wide branding perspective.
  8. In short, they don’t spend as much time building your website (more of moonlighting), as compared to a web design company that is doing it on a full-time basis.
  9. It also saves you so much time as you do not need to get involved in the ideation, design process, sitting with the designer side by side and also sorting out the specifications on how you want your website page to look like. You can just leave it to the pro!
  10. Therefore, you have more time to focus on your business, products innovation, services perfection and core values.

I’d Rather Not Think About It

When my great uncle passed, he was given one of the monuments in Morris County NJ by his family. He specifically wanted one and even requested it in his will. He mentioned that the family could add to it whatever they wanted. It’s a good thing that he was good to the family, because if he wasn’t, they could have added just about anything. They had a beautiful message to go along with it. I’ve never really thought about what I want when I pass, but I guess if I had to make a choice, a monument sounds pretty nice.

I’m not even at the age where I would expect to have a monument, but I suppose I’ll get there eventually. Those kinds of thoughts are something that I like to avoid, because I don’t want to make anything happen sooner than it should. I’m a little bit superstitious in that way. Nothing will probably happen to me when I think about those topics, but I don’t want to take any chances. Continue reading “I’d Rather Not Think About It”

Looking at advertising alone, these eMarketer predictions show how the duopoly of Facebook and Google dominate paid media investments online, although offline media buys remain important for many larger brands.alfred

Trend 1. Lifecycle marketing
Although it’s often said that the ‘funnel is dead’ since consumer follows non-linear journeys, regardless of the product or service you’re involved with marketing, it will always be the case that to grow a business, your primary focus is growing awareness, closely followed by increasing customer leads and prospects.

This focus is shown by the latest Altimeter / Prophet State of Digital Marketing report, which shows a primary focus on increasing awareness.

The role of digital in creating a unified customer experience is also high in the response, but it’s shocking that digital marketing isn’t seen as a driver of boosting revenue from existing customers. It’s an artefact of the question since digital marketing is effective in achieving all of these goals, including customer retention.

A more practical way to plan to integrate online marketing into marketing activities is to consider communications from a customer point-of-view through the customer journey. I call this always-on lifecycle marketing and recommend you review your use of online AND offline media across the customer lifecycle.

An example of an audit is shown by this example of the use of marketing activities by a B2B company, which although strong at the top-of-funnel in terms of activities used, is less strong in the middle and bottom-of-funnel nurture and re-targeting activities. Many businesses are adopting marketing automation and account-based marketing technology to implement these touchpoints. See the article linked to above for all of the potential activities that can be audited.

Trend 2. Conversational marketing
For me, this is the most exciting trend in marketing today, bringing together rapid consumer adoption of smart speakers and innovation in search query processing, conversational interfaces and messaging. Conversational marketing was highlighted as a key innovation in the latest Gartner hype cycle alongside Artificial Intelligence, which often fuels it. You can see that of the technologies on the Innovation Trigger slope, many aren’t expected to become mainstream for 5 to 10 years. Of those forecast to hit the mainstream within the next 2 to 5 years, the three most significant for marketers to consider are personification, real-time and conversational marketing.
