Best friends are great. No matter what happens in life, how many new friends you meet and spend time with, no matter how long it is since you last saw them, the true mark of a best friend is that you can return to them at any stage and simply pick up where you left off. They will always be reliable, will help you out, and make you a better person. When it comes to digital marketing, email is that best friend.
We are all familiar with the idea of email marketing, but for many digital marketers, it is still seen very much as a standalone endeavour, not an essential part of a comprehensive lead generation and sales strategy. We want to change that.
An interesting column about Harrison Ford in the Guardian last week spoke of his numerous near-death scrapes over the years. Having narrowly avoided crashing the small plane Ford was, appropriately, flying solo, the column likened the Star Wars actor’s life to that of Dick Van Dyke. The comparison was made because of the latter’s numerous lucky escapes and recalled a time when an elderly Van Dyke fell asleep on his surfboard and drifted out to sea. In an incident as bizarre as it was compelling, the Mary Poppins star was saved when a pod of porpoises nudged him back to safety.
We spoke last week about why digital marketers should attend the Dublin Tech Summit, and we weren’t disappointed with the first day’s great array of talks. Here’s 3 big takeaways we got from Day One that can teach us a lot about how to approach a digital marketing strategy and what you need to know about increasing consumer engagement and generating leads.
Earlier this week, we outlined some of the main talking points from our first inbound marketing workshop held in Dublin, but there were so many more takeaways and tips that we thought we would take a look at what else our Sales Director Ross had to say.
