What Is a Marketing Strategy and Why Is it important?

Firstly, a marketing strategy refers to the goals the company needs to achieve through its marketing efforts. Specifically, the strategic stage of your campaign involves your marketing team deciding what your overall business purpose is; why you are running this campaign. Elements of a marketing strategy include ‘what offering you will deliver, who you will deliver it to, how you will deliver it and who your competitors are’. Fully understanding and reminding your marketing team what your strategy entails is an essential element to running a successful marketing campaign.

Now that we have outlined why it is essential that your marketing team perfects your strategy, why is 2022 the best year to perform this? 2022 has been deemed the ‘new world’ ensuing from the global pandemic. Covid-19 has irrevocably altered the marketing and business sector, and the values your company should present to customers.  Lockdown and isolation caused ‘emotions to run high’ which in turn placed an importance on personal interactions with brands.  During a time of such uncertainty, the humanization of brands was comforting to consumers.

Why Is Traveling Important?

Traveling the world, whether it is for business or pleasure, allows you to learn and discover the morals and ethics of people all around the world. In business, especially successful businesses, transactions, and interactions internationally are almost guaranteed to occur. Companies and businesses have made it a trend to place more value on the employees with multicultural backgrounds and talents.

Finally, I have a printed copy of the 2016/17 Global Marketing Strategy for Marketing Eye and it is being developed out to the point where every single item in the marketing strategy is given to a person who is responsible for outcomes.

It's particularly exciting given that usually we only share part of the plan, but this year, we decided to share it all - along with our profit sharing strategy for employees. It's time for many of our younger team members to start investing in houses or apartments, and they cannot do that without getting some real money behind them.

Traffic Sucks, But It Can Get Better

You wake up, get ready, and set out for your day. You love what you are wearing and you’ve got a great cup of coffee in your hand. You’re thinking it is going to turn out to be a pretty good day. And then you hit it, traffic. Every morning, without fail, there is traffic somewhere in the city. Seeing those brake lights light up can be one of the most frustrating things.

Is It Time For A New Profile Picture?

Picture this: You’re downloading a new app. You hit the “get started” button and you’re asked to enter your name, birthday (so you can receive a ‘Happy Birthday’ text of course), and email address. You move on to the next step. Now, you’re asked to upload a profile picture. 15 minutes of life pass you by, and you’re still scrolling through your gallery trying to find the perfect picture. The one that shows you from the waist up, with good lighting, and highlights your best features. Why do we this? Because we grew up hearing the adage A picture is worth a thousand words, and we don’t want to say the wrong thing.
