Is the juice worth the squeeze

Where has the time gone that “get 3 for the price of 2” was the paramount of promotional campaigns? What happened to “no good, get your money back”? Where is the “I make special price, just for you!” in the online world? I don’t know. All I know is that over the last few years, my job hasn’t got any simpler.

Comparing online channels to traditional channels

If you’re in online marketing, you probably get a lot of questions about the different channels to use. When catering to a person that isn’t that internet savvy, it is helpful to compare online to offline channels. This way, you can dispense with a lot of questions. I thought it might be handy to create an overview.

Ad words => advertising in the yellow pages

You are looking for something and your search engine gives you sponsored links that cater to your needs. When looking through the yellow pages, you will also find ads of the category you are browsing through that provide a solution to your problem.

New media marketing 101 series: #5 email

Now here is something basic. Everyone that reads this has email. Most of you have more than one address. Personally I have a work address, a personal address and something for spam. It’s very important to me that the first two are devoid of advertising and promotional mails. This is a practice used by a lot of people.

However, email is a very important source or marketing contacts. It’s the digital equivalent of direct mail. There are a number of significant differences though. This post is about the “why”, rather than the “how”. If you want to know the ins and outs of the more technical side, read my earlier post. Read the rest of this entry »
