AC Blog Geofencing Geotargeting

 

As the digital age evolves, many words and ideas emerge that leave most people scratching their heads. We could write a dictionary about all the cutting-edge lingo, but today we are going to break down the difference between “Geotargeting” and Geofencing”.

These two terms are commonly used interchangeably, however, this use is incorrect. While both have the prefix geo – meaning earth, ground, global, etc. – targeting and fencing have two distinct goals when it comes to capturing your target audience.

The amount of content available to consumers is ever increasing. Not only in the number of social media platforms available for you to connect with your consumers, but also the increase in competition of more and more businesses hoping to engage with customers this way. Here are 4 tips to help your content stand out above the rest:

Brand Tone

Brand messaging has the power to create lasting connections with consumers. While brand voice is one of the most important aspects of establishing a brand identity, the brand tone is key to executing your message effectively. Unlike brand voice, which should remain constant, the brand tone can and should change. It provides the nuance necessary to appropriately communicate your brand message, in alignment with your brand voice, depending on the context. For example, the way you address a customer complaint should differ from the tone used to announce a new product or promotion.

2021 marketing trends

This year has required a lot of adjustment for individuals and businesses alike. As our daily routines were disrupted, many of us had to pivot in one way or another in order to adjust to the times. The changes trickled down to every aspect of business, marketing, consumer behavior, and more. It's safe to say that we were all affected in some way or another this year. 

While some of these shifts were painful, there are some interesting dynamics about the year that we think will continue into 2021. It is never easy to predict the future (2020 has certainly proven that), but we think some of the shifts that were made this year — especially in the world of marketing — may stick around for awhile or, at a minimum, influence consumer's behavior in the new year. 

Here are some areas of focus that make sense for your business in today's marketing landscape:

website chat 1

In an increasingly on-demand world with a need for instant gratification, live chat has almost become the norm on websites. According to SuperOffice, "41% of customers expect live chat on your website."

One reason to have a chat feature on your website is ease of communication. Consumers like to communicate on their own terms. Some may prefer a phone call or email, but increasingly, consumers like using chat. If a customer can't get a quick response from a brand, their loyalty is likely to dwindle. Imagine wanting to ask a simple question, but having to pick up the phone and wait on hold for 20 minutes. Most users would hang up and head to a competitor's website. 

email marketing tips

Email marketing can often be a beneficial addition to your multi-touch marketing strategy. While there are newer and flashier marketing tools out there, email marketing is unique in its ability to reach customers and interested parties directly in their inboxes — a place most of us frequent on a regular basis! When you send emails, you're also reaching an audience that has already opted-in to receive your messages. This means your audience is already expecting to hear from you and may be more ready to convert!

If you're just getting started with email marketing or have been utilizing it without seeing great results, try these four tips to optimize your strategy.

brand voice

In an oversaturated digital landscape, it is more important than ever to learn how to cut through the noise and build a connection with your brand's target audience. There are many ways to set yourself apart from competitors and establish a recognizable personality for your brand — colors, logos, and other visual features, but alone, they are not enough. To connect with your customers and build a lasting, loyal relationship, your brand needs a voice. A brand voice encompasses the language, tone, and personality used to connect with consumers. 

When developing a voice for your brand, it is important to be intentional. The voice of your brand will evolve with time but should always be consistent with your brand's core identity. Here are some tips for developing and maintaining a brand voice:

holidays 2020

Which way will the holiday shopping winds blow this season? Dare we try to predict a single thing in the year 2020?

There are plenty of things that nobody knows, however, there are factors that are certain this season. Here are our marketing recommendations for the 2020 holiday season that you won't want to ignore!
