How has your marketing changed in the last 6 months?
Another Monday Morning Website Tip by Marcus Rangel
We’re roughly in month 6 of a new land of opportunity and my question to you is how has your marketing changed in the last 6 months with this new opportunity we’re in?
Since I’m refreshed from being on vacation 🙂 I have several questions to think through. And yes, I did refer to the last 6 months as an opportunity because just because although things have changed a bit, it has required us to adapt and look at new ways of doing things which for me is a ton of fun!
How would you rate yourself in staying in front of people?
The key here is frequency and good content. Right now people are looking for answers to questions that you probably have and you can easily stay in front of people with either social, website, or email content. Speaking of email content….
How did you use your email list?
Your prospects are looking for interesting stuff to read in their inbox. Think of it this way, how many non-personal emails do you get in a week? What if you started sending something at least weekly that gave an update or showed you as a guide to the environment we’re in?
What video content did you roll out?
Why read when you can watch right? Ads online perform better with video and I bet if I made these emails into a video it would be a lot easier to scan through… but I get up too early to write these things to make a video!
What books did you read?
I have two book recommendations if you haven’t read lately, “Free to Focus” by Michael Hyatt, an amazing book on how to focus your time and attention on the right things in life as a business owner or a leader within a company and the new one I just got in the mail, “Traffic Secrets” by Russell Brunson that I’m pumped to read.
What changed on your website?
It’s a great time to at least stop and look at your website. If your marketing has changed at all, is it reflected on your website? If your marketing didn’t need to, have you posted any new content to your site?
P.S. I mentioned vacation and man how important that is to me and our family and don’t let Covid stop you from doing something – you need it! If you are looking for a spot I can never recommend highly enough Big Cedar Lodge which is just south of Branson. The views, the level of excellent service, and just being outside in nature with your fam is something amazing! Here’s a pic of us as you head into the resort!
About Marcus Rangel
I've been working with small businesses owners to craft not only beautiful custom websites, but clear, clever and concise messages to reach their prospects since 2005.
I officially hung up my "corporate cleats" to be an entrepreneur and small business owner in the summer of 2020. IMC, which started as a side hustle early in the mornings before the sun was even up in 2017, is what led me down this path as a business owner myself. I focus on helping other business owners continually stay in front of people & prospects with digital marketing, create websites that get leads with great engagement, and produce video content that are meant for the digital era we're in.
When I'm not creating, you can find me hanging out with my incredible family on our front lawn or on my OneWheel around the big city of Owasso, OK.
Does your website need help?
Facebook Ads, Google Ads and SEO may be where your head initially goes at when you think of spending money on online advertising. And although I would still recommend Google ads, there are 2 other strategies that are pretty standard if you were to ask me where to make sure they should head with spending money online: Retargeting and Email Marketing. Here’s why: Retargeting – bring people back. Did you know that those little ads that follow you around the internet asking you to come back to purchase that item you didn’t follow through with yet can be utilized on your site? That’s right, you don’t have to be selling those fresh new Jordan’s to get those ads to start working for your company for…Read More
I’ve been writing a lot about email marketing because it’s so essential right now, and because it keeps you in front of your audience. Your subject line will make or break your email campaign. Here’s wow to write a better one. It’s the headline to your email. It’s the reason someone should “open your letter,” yet so many people don’t follow these simple steps to make sure their emails get opened. To make this fun and entertaining, let’s act as if we were writing subject lines for the 2020 reboot of the show Seinfeld… this should happen anyways, right? Let me give you a few examples and see which one you are more likely to open: Example 1: NBC show scheduleExample 2: NBC fall update…Read More
With most of the country stuck at home and not able to go out they are turning to their phones and computers more and more… just look at your own screen time report and I bet you see an uptick (you may be a bit shocked like Chris Pratt in Parks and Rec). Here’s the 3 key stats to look at with your email marketing. Your email frequency. This actually isn’t a stat that your system is probably going to generate but if you just look at the dates to see how often you are sending emails out you should at least aim for once a week right now. If you are driving people to a webinar or offer and it’s timely stuff, aim for…Read More
