Still Think Digital Advertising Is A Fad? Infographic

Still Think Digital Advertising Is A Fad?  Infographic | Ecom Revolution | Scoop.it
Digital marketing isn't a fad - it's the future. And although it may be a notoriously difficult task to project the future; the most telling variable is what's happening in the present.

 

Look around you and you'll notice that the world is connected, communicating and constantly clicking.

 

There's no reason to believe that the demographic cohort that will follow Generation Y, will be any different. In fact, the next generation will be the first that cannot conceive a world that isn't defined and enabled by the Internet, mobile devices and online social networking. Still not convinced?

 

The following Infographic by ROI Media  - http://bit.ly/JOOy40 - presents an overview of the digital landscape, and the changes pointing towards the need for social media marketing in commerce.

Q: Do Social Marketers Really Know What Social Consumers Want? A: No [Infographic]

Q: Do Social Marketers Really Know What Social Consumers Want? A: No [Infographic] | Ecom Revolution | Scoop.it

This article is from Brian Solis , and in collboration with Barnickel Design, they have created this infograph that clearly shows that there is a perception gap 

 

what customers want and what executives think they want.based on research from Pivot referring "The Perception Gap"


Jan Gordon: My commentary


Hopefully this article and findings will help to provide some clarity so marketers can begin to engage with their customers, in a way that is meaningful to them. Word of mouth spreads like wildfire and you'll want to make sure your business is listening, engaging and responding to their needs before someone else does.

 

Here are some highlights:

 

** 76% of marketers feel they know what their customers want yet only 34% have asked customers

 

**59% of social customers wish to engge businesses for buying insights and customer service respectively, on the contrary only 37% of marketers believe that these services re in demand by their customers

 

**Take a look at Actual Consumer usage VS marketers' perceptions of consumer usage on the infograph, there is definitely a gap in perception here

 

 mobile social apps 

 

**15% of consumers use them on Linkedin, marketers think it's more like 36. 7%

 

**twitter 35% useage - marketers perceive this to be 82%

 

 

 Daily deal  & coupon sites

 

**Facebook usage is 35%

 

**Marketers perceive this to be 56%

Storytelling Done Right Can Do The Selling For You

Storytelling Done Right Can Do The Selling For You | Ecom Revolution | Scoop.it
I selected this article from copyblogger because it delivers, it's simple, straightforward and right on the money!

 

Here's an excerpt:

 

"I believe a story can potentially carry the entire sale for your product, even if everything else is technically “wrong” in your ads

 

** no clear call to action

**lame bullets

**weak offer

 

For example:

 

"Nothing in the movie "Top Gun" told you to buy Maverick’s brand of sunglasses or join The US Navy. Yet, the movie “sold” both products to hordes of people.

 

**So, how do you apply this to your marketing?

 

1.  The personal story


This is one of the most common landing page stories.

 

**This one is simple — you just “walk” people (step-by-step) through a painful problem you went through and how you achieved the result your readers are looking for.

 

2. The historical story

 

**This kind of story is extremely persuasive, contains nothing even remotely resembling “hype,” and can persuade people to buy things they otherwise might ignore.

 

3. The “meet the guru” story


**This one is related to the personal story, but it’s got more “pop” due the built-in credibility it gives you.

 

**These suggestions have proven to produce results, he gives more examples......
