Attention is rather earned, and not bought nowadays. It is better to reap something out of pure hard work and gather something that is voluntary given and not forced.

In the same way, acquiring customers or clients for your business entails people sharing a remarkable experience about your products and services. You do not always pay for advertising. You can also increase brand awareness and target sales by the human stories that your customers share to their fellows and compile all of these feedback and let them be known to the consumer world. It is like that the “brand speaks for itself.” As a result you gather more leads that you can convert to buyers.

A rule of thumb in creating effective leads is to create compelling content and use this content to have leads through conversion of visitors.  A lead is a person who has indicated interest in some shape, form, or way, in your company’s product or service.

Lead generation or acquiring leads is the process of attracting or converting strangers and prospects into people who will indicate interests in your company’s products or services. Some examples of lead generators job applications, online content, and coupons.

You must be able to warm up potential clients to your business and eventually get them into buying.

Power of consumers 

Consumers have all the power. It must be put in mind that their needs are to be prioritized. Once you get to target what they are looking for, have enticed them, and provided them satisfaction, they patronize your service. They keep coming back to you. 

Establish a good first impression. Personalize the process by opening up communication to inquire about the existing needs of a potential customer. In this way, you provide value instead of just selling. It is more of serving, and serving involves empathy and compassion

Lead Generation Strategies

Nurture curious prospects through the marketing funnel and into your sales pipeline.  Effective lead generation strategies foster strong relationships with customers who are qualified for long-term investment in your business.

  • Lead Capture: collecting information from a lead. Information may include the lead’s name, contact information, business name, position, number of employees in his or her organization
  • Lead Magnets: incentives that drives a prospect to be a lead 
  • Lead Qualification: the lead’s information is used to determine how likely they are to buy
  • Lead Segmentation: based on their information, habits, and activities (e.g., job title, lead magnet attracted them, pages they visited on your website), leads are segmented or separated and then classified 

Points to Remember:

  • Attract 
  • Convert
  • Close
  • Delight

Strangers can become visitors. Visitors can be converted to leads. Leads will become customers. Customers may then become promoters who will increase awareness of your brand and consequently increase revenue.

Create content that addresses the dilemmas and needs of your ideal customers in order to ATTRACT qualified prospects and BUILD TRUST.

Mechanics of Lead Generation

  1. CTAs (Call to Actions) – A CTA (call to action) is an image, message, or button that calls visitors. This can be used in promoting a campaign. This action navigates to a landing page when it comes to lead generation.
  2. Landing page – This is a web page where a visitor lands on for a specific purpose.
  3. Forms – Hosted on landing pages are forms. These consist of a series of fields that gathers information in exchange for an offer.
  4. Offer – An offer piece of content or something that has value and is being offered on the landing page.

You can use your different promotional channels to link and drive traffic to your landing page once you get to combine all these elements together. You can then start generating leads.

Benefits of Lead Generation Strategies

  • The increase in leads of a website contributes to the heightening of the brand awareness.
  • You can upscale small businesses through leads by acquiring more prospects even those who are referred to as rich or affluent ones.
  • You get to have a vision of your target market. You do not aimlessly act in increasing revenue for your enterprise.
  • Lead generation makes you closer to your clients by knowing their personal preferences and thereby you can create tailored services for their specific needs.
  • You add value by directing your actions to what can be called a “focus group” of consumers since your efforts are concentrated in providing the best service that is custom-fit to their needs and wants.

    • Accessibility: Digital assistants and smart speakers are now being utilized.

Marketing Automation & Martech

75% of marketers use tools for marketing automations, and more than half them will still use these in the succeeding year.

  • Web analytics.
  • CRM.
  • Advertising automation.
  • Email marketing.
  • Workflow management.
  • Lead management.

Metrics – there are two basic metrics: traffic and conversions. The goal is to drive traffic into the website and have conversions that will eventually lead to sales.

Establishing Human Connection through Marketing

The content that is published must impart a message that touches the human heart or even soul so that it has a way to connect. There must be an established relationship between the brand and the consumer. Practical tips and a step-by-step guide in solving every day problems are perfect examples of stories of human interest.

Content marketing predictions for 2020

So what do we expect for the 2020s? With the rise of advanced web analytics and marketing technology (martech), content prioritizes on the audience’s preference and is more personalized. 

“Content prioritizes on the audience’s preference and is more personalized. “

Content marketing has to do with human existence. It will revolve around storytelling, authenticity, and ethical marketing. Authenticity entails emotional marketing. Human interest stories must be backed by more original research and written with visual content that does not give half-truths about the brand voice. 

As Google’s algorithms get smarter, content becomes larger. Only the best content will climb its way to the peak.

Data delivers a human touch

Ironically, before content marketing becomes more human and personalized, it needs to become more data-driven.

Content becomes more customized to the audience as it is making its way to the 2020s, as compared to the early 2010s, where writers create posts just to express themselves and not really for a determined set of audience. 

Analysis with methods for ranking must be done nowadays and web analytics must always be in the scene. In this way, they can be ready for competition with other brands. 

As content marketing enters 2020s, web analytics tools are the frequently used content marketing technology type. 

Expectations in 2020

  • Scientific method in publishing
  • Visual contents and multimedia blogging
  • Creation and distribution of data-driven content 
  • Popularity of voice search will become more popular 
  • Automation will aid in the strongest impact of digital advertising 
  • First-time users will delve into marketing automation
  • Instagram will rise againstFacebook in terms of number of monthly users.
  • High Return of Investment for Email marketing.
  • Personalization and authenticity of content will steer more marketing campaigns.

The Taste Factor: Preference in Using Digital Technology

Enjoy this post? Use this Tweetable link to share.

Social class is a factor in the digital tastes of youth. We tackle the youth because they comprise the greater percentage of the population of the ‘netizens’ or people who use the internet.

Even though there is an expansion in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) resources, it is not a guarantee that young people will participate and communicate in an increasingly digital world.

Technology can be classified as a social act because it involves interaction between people.

The relationship between social background and what might be called ‘digital taste’ is that taste derives from the integration of economic, political, and ideological effects in terms of relationality, according to Frow, a sociologist.

Capital is classified into economic, cultural, and social and it affects digital tastes.

Habitus

Socialized norms or tendencies that influence behavior and thinking are termed as habitus. The society or environment influences the disposition of a person. It also has an effect on an individual’s knowledge and understanding of the world. Dispositions formed by past events and structures are also included in this making habitus a product of the unconscious.

Home habitus

Technology use is closely related with social identity and the valued identities in the home play a big role in determining digital tastes. Young people mostly adapt the behaviors of their parents and the ones they are usually acquainted with.

Capital

  • Economic – simply refers to economic resources, such as cash and property.
  • Cultural – cultural capital includes the knowledge and skills acquisition of a field that allows young people to function with a degree of competence and acceptance. Habitus influences the value placed on cultural capital.
  • Social capital

    The social capital is gained with peers, but this is not long-term in relation to educational attainment. For as time passes, most of the people that contribute to the choices or decisions of people come and go. As professionals go from one field to another their social capital also changes. So, social positions affect preferences.

Individuals get to have different likes or preferences when it comes to different things, especially in the vast digital world. For example, music. Different people have varied choices of genre in music. 

Digital tastes may also be influenced by the material form through which the music is delivered.

People gain a  natural understanding of the world they live in as they get to experience different things every day. But if these are not processed or pondered upon, there will be no true learning. Reflexivity is a must. Being reflexive means examining one’s own beliefs, practices and judgments.

It is about what someone does with his or her knowledge and understanding. Therefore, it also entails practical application. The communication medium and the physical manifestation affect the way a person chooses what kind of material he or she will consume. 

Cultural forms like discussions, news, entertainment and education are produced from various media like books, music, artworks, TV, computers, radios, phones.

Different media can also be an expression of the same taste or same genre. 

There is a strong connection between technology use and class. According to studies, habitus is important and influences young people’s engagement with and interest in digital technologies. 

The acceptance and rejection of emerging technologies depend on how these fit with the predominant habitus of a young individual.

Aside from common interests of the young such as music, young people’s tastes are influenced by their social background. Active participation will be then achieved if there will be an expansion of the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) resources. Yet, this shall not be the only solution. The connection between cultural capital, habitus, and cultural form results in entrenched digital inequalities instead of an economically entrenched digital divide. 

A social site is said to be a place of interaction and exchange. It is an extension of the human mind. It is where individuals create, invent, and devise to accomplish something. It encourages expression. Yet people must know the rules of social acceptance within the online community’s confines. For no freedom is absolute.

Social media has since its rise has always been the frontrunner in the irresistible march of technology. It is utilized in advertising, but the basic rules of persuasion, emotional appeal, entertainment, and information have not changed. The platform has just been altered, the way the message is delivered.

Advertising still mirrors life. To target a consumer’s trust and loyalty, you must establish first a meaningful relationship with him or her and this will be through caving in to the emotions and playing on his or her heartstrings.

Transitioning to  online communications, you must know how to relay the ‘sensory experience’ to the connected consumer. Will he or she like sour? Bitter? Salty? Not just a single taste all the time. Taste buds do not want anything that resembles a primary flavor sensation.A lot of consumers are sophisticated nowadays and crave for new sensations on information in the digital world.

Keeping Up

“If he or she asks you to run a mile, go with him or her two.” Go beyond what is expected as long as you do not overpromise and underdeliver. To reach a level that is convincing and satisfying, all efforts must be done and suggestions and innovations must be embraced to drastically incorporate the disruption of the norm.

Adaptation. New environmental, economic conditions call for modifications. With the rise of the population, conflicts like heavy build-up in roads, pollution, and even communicable diseases have altered the way people live. This pushed for a breakthrough to happen especially in the working industry.

An evolution of the job market also occured due to technological advancements. Many companies have noticed the benefits of the unconventional way of working which is then called “remote.”

What is Remote work?

Work that is done outside the traditional office environment is then referred to as “remote.”  It is also coined as working from home or telecommuting. 

Without having the need to commute makes it a lot easier and convenient for employees to execute their projects and daily tasks. 

The concept of remote work is that employees can successfully execute projects and daily tasks without needing to commute to an office each day. Different levels of remote employment opportunities exist, but each type provides the benefit of flexibility in an employee’s professional and personal life.

Why remote and what are the benefits of Telecommuting?

There are many advantages of remote work or telecommuting and this is the reason a lot of people have transitioned themselves into this setup.

Here are some of its good points:

  1. Flexible lifestyle for employees – Fully remote workers can set their own schedule within general business hours while freelancers have the option to work whatever time they prefer. Parents, people with side hustles, and those who are taking further studies can have extra time to do other important activities in their lives. 
  2. Better health – No time wasted for commuting to offices makes employees less stressed and they can devote their time to other important activities. They can do exercise, do healthy eating by cooking healthier meals. When they are more happy, they increase their productivity and become more dedicated to their job. 
  3. Renewed passion– Employees get to select a place where they feel most comfortable and isolated from distractions. The capacity to work anywhere gives them a sense of reward and they feel more enthusiastic in achieving their goals.
  4. Higher productivity – Since most employees give more satisfying results with remote work, employers prefer this setup.
  5. Cost savings– There are minimal business expenses. Overhead is taken away from the reduction in costs of equipment, office furniture, rent and office supplies.
  6. Engaged employees– Employees become more engaged and this leads to lower attrition rate. The longer duration of the employee in the company makes the team more connected and bonded. A strong and loyal team that works together contributes to the faster growth of the company. 

Essential Remote Team Management Tips

  1. Organizational buy-in – The company must believe and unify in the decision that there is a need for remote work.
  2. Infrastructure –   Ensure that the company is using reliable tools for planning and communication. Some examples of effective collaboration tools are Slack, Zoom, Google, and Confluence.
  3. Establish communication rules
    • Keep the channels open. Stay in touch with the team by using video calls, chats, and emails.
    • Video calls are highly preferred because people can see the body language and facial expression of those they are talking to. It adds a personal touch and the team members’ cravings for a face-face contact is then satisfied.
    • Allot time for social bonding by giving them online spaces to reach out to each other.
    • In-person interactions in real life are also crucial to promote work-life balance. Schedule recreational activities for the team members to compensate for the lack of bonding in virtual teams. This creates a better atmosphere. 
  4. Provide useful trainings
    • Self-motivation Techniques
    • Introduce New and Effective Tools
    • Making the Most Out of the Communication Channel
    • Setting Up a Conducive Workspace at Home or Finding a Reliable Workspace
    • Creating and Complying to a Schedule
    • Getting Properly Dressed
    • Improving Reliability and Accountability
    • Improvise Ways of Coping with Distractions
    • Building Transitions or Useful Breaks from Work
  5. Set an adjustment period – Allow the team to have time in conditioning themselves for remote work. Listen to the employees’ voice because when their opinions are heard, they feel empowered. Establish a clear company culture and stick to its objectives.

Takeaways

Remote work or telecommuting provides a useful and intelligent alternative to the traditional office setup since it offers flexibility in time and location. Employees can work from a variety of workspaces for example at the comfort of their own houses, where they feel more convenient.

However, like in the physical offices, distractions are still inevitable in any place, so the workers must strategize to distance themselves from these. Communication tools must always be utilized to ensure a proper flow of information and fulfilment of tasks. The company must focus on enhanced training in different areas of learning to increase productivity.

Smart and dedicated people must be hired to get goals done. Lastly, social bonding and personal interactions in real life must also be established to give a breath of fresh air to the team to renew their minds and rejuvenate so that when they get back to work they feel more energized and enthusiastic.
