Social Media

Audience segments specific messaging is possible because of social media and this should be exploited to the hilt, to address the interests and concerns of individual segments if relationship building is to remain authentic and be sustained. The brand strategy and digital intersection here provides the axes of the message – the what to the who and digital marketing capability enables carrying the message. People are critical to maintaining this flow. Employees must be completely clear on principal brand architecture elements and be able to communicate in the brand voice and in alignment with the brand’s positioning. This takes time, but in the quest for resonance, it pays to invest with in this process with a long term view in mind.

Content

Your content should ensure that you stand out and is in keeping with your positioning. All communications should dovetail and be in the voice your customers are learning or have learned to expect from you. As well as brand building, content should be used to educate, entertain and above all reinforce the brand benefits and values that customers will recognise as aligned with the brand personality.

CX

It’s interesting to reflect that there is no practice stream that we deal with that does not have CX as an integral part of improving and embedding, whether it is for positioning or for processes! In the case of Digital Marketing, it’s necessary to understand all the points of the customer journey and all the points at which your target segments engage with, communicate with or otherwise consume outputs from your business. This allows insights into where to reach them and what messaging – relationship building, information providing or marketing, to provide at every stage.

Our Difference

There is a definitive and distinctive difference in the consulting and delivery process when people who live and breathe technology help you solve your technological challenges, and that is what we bring.  We believe software should be transformative and approaches to meeting requirements should be focused while methodologies should be flexible enough to accommodate  learning and stakeholder participation.

No brand can truly be resonant without robust and effective technology, because the business will lack resilience and facility at several fundamental levels. Therefore, we firmly believe that the Technology your business runs on, relies on is a fundamental pillar of brand strength and operational advantage.

So, if you are after a redevelopment, greenfield development, enhancements, systems integration with a mix of platforms and bespoke code, we can help. We like helping friendly businesses operate at their best, and no matter where you are in the lifecycle or problem solving process, feel free to call us to discuss. If we can help, we will. +44(0)20 8191 9008 or contact us.
