    Online Dating: The Marketing Edition

    February 25, 2019

    The digital age has brought about a huge evolution to the marketing game.  The basic premise of attracting customers by putting your name and brand anywhere and everywhere no longer stands to attract business.  In its place, is an intricate marketing dance between company and consumer that is much more akin to dating a significant other and attracting attention.  This intricate courtship is filled with numerous touchpoints, coined micro-moments in the marketing world which are similar to the number and variety of interactions one has with a spouse at the beginning of your courtship.

    Google's Micro Moments

    February 21, 2019

    There's no denying the buyer's journey has completely changed due to the evolution of technology.

    Zero Moment of Truth and Less Than Zero Moment of Truth

    February 5, 2019

    Before the internet came on the scene, businesses were limited to traditional marketing methods. Nearly all businesses employed directed marketing efforts, like radio ads, TV commercials and mailer marketing to increase brand awareness and establish initial touchpoints with prospective customers. While these direct marketing efforts were standard for the time, they were effective in the sense that they created brand recognition but limited in the ability to bring customers in.  In most cases, potential buyers were presented with multiple brands to choose from.  The determining factor for...

    January 8, 2019

    Nearly a century and a half ago, Nietzsche said “God is dead.” But most philosophers will argue that he wasn’t celebrating this fact.
