Today we welcome Amy Fowler onto the Koozai blog to talk about the complexities of dating Sheldon Cooper. Oh wait. It’s a different Amy Fowler, which is why we asked her to discuss the complicated world of having an online presence when someone famous shares the same name.
Usually when a company wants to enter the online space they will find a way to create an online presence, generally in the form of a website and work hard to get the website live as soon as possible. This is usually met with a disappointing flow of visitors to the website and a lack of website leads/conversions.
Here at Koozai we love working on our branding. A strong brand can not only generate a positive relationship with customers but it can also help visibility online and in search engines. To help us keep our branding as clear as possible, we created a brand guidelines document for our own reference.
Today, more than ever, branding is a huge factor in marketing your business. Traditionally a brand is described as a method of differentiating between similar products or services. According to every search engine’s favourite resource, Wikipedia, the first graphic use of a brand was a watermark on papers in Italy back in the 1200s.
Back in the good old days before the internet and social media there weren’t that many places you could complain, certainly not that publicly anyway.
Do you remember the Three Billy Goats Gruff?
Depending on which story you read, these intrepid explorers risked their lives crossing a bridge which happened to house a rather hungry troll. You can read the story here if you fancy, but the long and short of it is (spoiler alert) the troll gets owned by the largest billy goat, and the three brothers spend eternity chomping on sweet, green grass.
Digital Marketing has evolved rapidly over the last five years. Maybe longer. Its speed to market, its improved ROI attribution and scale of reach has taken Digital Marketing from buzzword to a staple of any forward thinking company’s marketing strategy. Yet, is there still a place for offline marketing?
* Now that I have your attention, the ‘stat’ in the title is correct for the purpose of this post. It is based on the 125 brands who came top in the Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For in 2012. Read on to find out more….
With an average of 187.3 million blogs and 125,000 daily signups (Source: Tumblr), Tumblr is no longer just another blogging platform. Interest has piqued in the 7 year old social platform since it was acquired by Yahoo last year, but in reality brands have been enticed by this user friendly portal for some time now (Coke have been posting on their own profile since 2011).
In the modern digital age, businesses need to harness the power of an up-to-date website, as well as regularly maintained social platforms. More can be gained from using both of these platforms together, compared to a single entity alone – so long as they are both being used properly of course.
