Overcome Short Attention Spans with Micro-Content

Overcome Short Attention Spans with Micro-Content | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

What can your advertising do in 10 seconds? Not a whole lot, you might think. But in a study from University of Hamburg and University of Hannover researchers proved that over 50 percent of Internet users stay on a webpage for less than 10 seconds. Accordingly, advertisers are now focusing on micro-content – clever, persuasive, and concise messages to target an audience with barely-there attention spans.

 

Micro-content should play a big role in your content strategy. We’ve already shown you how to create micro-content time- and cost-efficiently using your existing visual assets. Now, we give you five smart tips on making the most of that micro-content...

When you start off in eCommerce (or if you’ve been doing it for a while), you will realize how important quality marketing is to keep the pipeline of traffic going to your site. It is very likely that initially you will be relying mostly on organic, unpaid media to keep it afloat. Thus, most of your efforts might be around blogging, Facebook & Twitter posts, video and all other kinds of content marketing.

 

This comes with 3 main challenges:

Being creative on demand.Coming up with topics for your marketing campaigns often.Do so at a volume that makes a difference and works for an ecommerce business. It has to be scalable in volume to bring home the bacon, so to speak.

Over the last few years, social media has had a huge impact in our everyday lives. It has completely changed the way we engage the world, both locally and internationally.

 

However, much of what is showcased focuses on the negative aspects of social media, such as people using it as a place to vent or rant or as place for cyberbullying. Despite our nature to focus on the more negative moments in social media, there are still many people using social media outlets to do great things in our world

Good Descriptions Rate More Than Good Reviews | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

Price still rules as an online purchase influencer, but basic brand assets should not be ignored in online product presentations.

 

Clear, concise, and pertinent product descriptions make online shoppers press the “Buy” button more often than do favorable reviews. In fact, only price topped persuasive product copy as a purchase influencer, according to a survey of 500 consumers conducted by Markettree for HookLogic.

 

Price remains king, with 84% of consumers designating it as one of the top three factors that cause them to buy. Sixty-three percent named product descriptions, and 49% listed reviews. Bringing up the rear were videos, named by only 12%. Fundamental brand assets like product names, images, and features, maintains HookLogic's survey report, are the bottom-of-the-funnel items most likely to turn browsers into buyers....

How Authoritative Is Your Content? 7 Tools to Help You Find Out | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

Standing out in the elbow-to-elbow class of content marketing practitioners requires more of a competitive spirit than most of us are willing to admit. Perhaps the one saving grace of the content game is that armed with the right tools, you can see how you and your company measure up. By understanding where you stand, you can better optimize content, gauge your authority on specific topics (as well as the authority of your contributors if you have them), track your successes and improve overall content performance.

Marketing Automation is Only The Beginning: How Algorithms and Artificial Intelligence Will Disrupt Marketing Forever

Marketing Automation is Only The Beginning: How Algorithms and Artificial Intelligence Will Disrupt Marketing Forever | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

...Marketing automation platforms save time, improve efficiency, increase productivity, and help manage big data. They give companies unprecedented abilities to understand buyers, identify opportunities, track campaign performance, and link marketing activities to business outcomes.

 

But they do not provide insight into the billions of bits of data being created as consumers move from screen to screen and interact online and offline with brands. According to IBM, 90 percent of all data in the world is less than two years old. Humans are not programmed to keep up. And yet, turning data into intelligence, intelligence into strategy, and strategy into action remains largely human powered. 

 

What inevitably comes next are marketing intelligence engines that process data and recommend actions to improve performance based on probabilities of success. Think about it. Are we really that far off from an automated marketing strategy in which the marketer's primary role is to curate and enhance algorithm-based recommendations rather than to devise them?...
