Do You Have an Integrative Marketing Strategy?

Integrative Marketing Stratergy

Are all of your marketing efforts at odds with one another—or do they work together, seamlessly, machine-like, toward a common goal?

When Your PPC Ad Copy Needs to Do the Heavy Lifting

PPC Copy needs to do the heavy lifting

There’s an old saying in marketing: Everyone is not your audience. In other words, you don’t want to spend money trying to get your product or brand in front of every single human on the face of the planet; that would likely be quite wasteful and unnecessary.

Email Marketing Still Matters—More Than You Might Think

You may have heard anecdotal evidence to suggest that email marketing is dead. You may be on the receiving end of a lot of promotional emails, for example, that you routinely delete without even opening.
