In October 2021, Boxmode and NING announced a partnership wherein the website builder will leverage NING’s headless CMS solution to develop membership and blog functionality. Since then, close collaboration between the two teams has revealed an opportunity to join forces and mutually aid in each others’ development.
Your business environment is always changing, and the competition is so fierce that you can’t afford to lag behind. New competitors, evolving customer tastes, disruptive new technologies, and many other factors modify the market dynamics. The company that fails to adapt loses.
The once-relevant design of your business website or logo can all of a sudden appear well-trodden, and the brand can become boring. This is when the question of rebranding arises.
How do you make your company recognizable for potential customers? Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is to build a strong brand. Branding helps to form the desired image, which is conveyed through different communication channels (not only visually) to firmly ingrain it in the minds of consumers.
If a brand is an image, then identity is means by which this image is formed: color, form, and style.
Of course, you know what PR is! But why do you need it in the era of the Internet? It’s simple: the same laws that work in everyday life apply to the vast online universe. Just like you care about how people perceive you on the individual level, you need to create a positive image of your brand in the eyes of your partners and the target audience. You need to work with the opinions and beliefs of people who interact with the company, its products, and services. And you also have to respond promptly to criticism and act appropriately in times of crisis.
We are surrounded by countless colors through which the world shows its richness. Not only do colors communicate the properties of objects to us, but they also convey emotions and can even influence our decision making.
That is mostly because colors bear strong associations with certain things, phenomena, states, and qualities. Thus, we associate yellow with the sun, blue with water and sky, green with nature, red with heat or danger, and so on.
Good old online advertising is still on the rise. But more and more businesses come to the conclusion that relying solely on classic targeting methods is not cost-effective enough in terms of investment. After all, the best ROI is usually achieved when advertisements are shown to “warm” customers, the people who are already familiar with your brand.
If you do business online or deal with digital marketing in any form, you certainly know that the best way to promote your business website and boost conversions is by getting traffic.
Traffic is the exposure that translates directly into online visibility, which, in turn, increases conversions. The more visibility you get, the more traffic you can expect to generate in the future. It’s a vicious circle of the digital age: you need traffic to drive even more traffic!
Have you ever felt embarrassed when giving your clients a business card with an email address like that email@example.com? Then you’ve reached the point where your business is not just a pilot project anymore.
Professionalism is not only reflected in how you do things but also in how you appear in your customers’ eyes. A custom business email address is one of the factors that shape your brand image, along with your business website, logo, support service, etc. No doubt, an email address like firstname.lastname@example.org would look much more convincing and professional on your business card than a generic Gmail or Yahoo account.
Most people don’t like ads. And you can’t really blame them. We live in a world where thousands of brands struggle for exposure. Ads are everywhere: in the streets, in public transport, on the TV, radio, and, of course, on the Internet. You will hardly find a popular website that wouldn’t throw a bunch of PPC ads right at you. And it seems there’s nowhere you can hide. Everyone wants your attention! No wonder why ads have become a nuisance for so many people these days.
What is the most versatile tool for generating leads, getting feedback from customers, and conducting market research? You must have already guessed — forms!
As consumers, we hardly pay much attention to such seemingly insignificant things as online forms. That is, at least until we run into very annoying ones or forms that are too long or badly composed. In that case, it is hard to stay indifferent!
Knowing the market size is vital for providing your company’s management team with an objective assessment of the current market situation. It allows you, your team, and your stakeholders to see the real opportunities for business development, to identify your position among the competitors, and to plan production volumes more effectively.
I could start this post by explaining the importance of YouTube for your digital marketing. But there’s no need to rehash the obvious. YouTube is not just the largest video-sharing platform in the world; it is known to be the second largest search engine after Google. So if you manage to harness its power, consider yourself golden as you get access to the inconceivable audience of almost 2 billion monthly active users worldwide!
