Interactive Content: A Must for Encouraging Brand Loyalty Through Content Marketing

Led Zeppelin was ahead of its time in a lot of ways. When they released their iconic concert film and soundtrack The Song Remains the Same in 1976, they probably just thought they came up with a clever, quasi-abstract title.

The Ballad of “Always On” Marketing Campaigns

When it comes to executing a marketing campaign, there’s not always a good time to pause, or to shoo away customer acquisition at any stage. Unlike traditional, linear marketing campaigns which tend to focus on awareness, the intent of an “always on” (also known as “evergreen”) campaign is continually optimized to build engagement and retention.

The Importance of Emotional Intelligence

The term “emotional intelligence” (EQ) from a marketing perspective might make you think of a number of things. Maybe it conjures thoughts of brands whose social posts get people consistently excited about their products. Or perhaps it brings to mind instances when a company has directly addressed a pain point that their audience cares about. […]

Deck the Halls With Holiday Marketing

For many retailers, December is inherently the season for targeted holiday messaging and all those unbeatable deals on consumer goods. B2C marketing, especially in retail, is a necessity.
