The “What type of marketer are you?” quiz is a bit of fun we had over a coffee or two (which may or may not have been laced with scotch) but the serious side of the quiz stems from the idea that marketing is getting both harder and easier.

And to navigate the growing complexity, you need to have a pretty good idea of what you’re good at and where the opportunities are.

Marketing today is much harder because there are so many different mediums we can use to get our message across…

  • relationship marketing
  • print media marketing
  • signage and promotional marketing
  • digital pay per click marketing
  • community and content marketing
  • direct marketing

Just to name a few.

But it is easier too, because there is so much information, training, tools and knowledge available at our finger tips.

Mad Men Marketers

Mad Men Marketers are slick, smooth and have copy to kill, but they are lacking authenticity so they need to round out their offer with relationship, community and content marketing.

But there’s a caveat on that advice… Content queen Lindsay Marder says “It’s not about speed and volume but quality”

“If you’re not a publisher, you don’t need to play the volume game”

Instead she recommends:

  • Deep, well thought out purposeful pieces that challenge your audience objections or add to their understanding.
  • Having a fewer, well tended pieces of content that are recycled regularly, refined and updated
  • Understanding and tapping into the belief system and emotions of of your audience

Lindsay has developed a content pipeline process to eliminate blog stress and keep you focused on content that matters. Her five step, 16 point plan gives you the framework to create and maintain a content based marketing program.

Lindsay is one of our guest speakers at the DMDU Connect 2019 conference this year.

Digital Marketing Wiz Kid

The number #1 problem in the digital marketing world is how easy it is to start a digital marketing campaign and how hard it is to actually get it to convert. Believe me, we know!

Creating a quiz to generate leads? Great idea and easy.. RIGHT?

WRONG. Connecting the dots, adding pixels, troubleshooting – I bet before it’s launched you’ve started another project already.

Podcast? Blog? Videos? All easy peasy….??

There are a million tools to make these things easy and more than 73 different digital marketing strategies you can use but each one takes a whole lot of time, effort and dedication to see it through.

Many of us get stuck at the starting gate and don’t know which one to pick. So what’s the answer to your implementation paralysis?

Get clear on the one thing your really need and see it through to the end! Get advice, training and support to help you understand the best way to use that tool, to maximise results and convert your leads to sales.

At DMDU Connect 2019 we have speakers talking about all the different strategies, but we also have people (like DMDU founder and coach Sonya Keenan) who has been there, done that, and can help you get unstuck.

Sonya developed a 3 x 3 Implementation Grid which you can DOWNLOAD HERE
