The Fancy Is The Newest “Hot Spot”

With a name like The Fancy, the more masculine among us may dismiss this newest hotspot as a “girly” site.  However, it is becoming the latest in a series of amalgamation websites to combine the best of some popular and climbing web interest sites—Pinterest, Love with Food, Groupon, and a host of others.  Best of all, the Fancy combines the best of these sites with a new and easy-to-use look that will draw buyers in and give higher conversion rates than the same bland and boring sites we have come to expect.

comScore’s article on the Fancy focuses on conversion from social media.  Likes are all well and good, but what happens when your likes do not translate into sales?  The Fancy can help you change that by providing that all-elusive marketing gold—a sales opportunity.  If your customers are buying, you are making money, and the Fancy proposes to give them every opportunity to do just that.

Email Drives Sales, Not Social Media

With all the emphasis on social media marketing (SMM) and its place in the marketing world, there are those who will probably clutch their heads and howl if they are told that social media is not the driving force behind sales.  However, a new study from Forrester called “The Purchase Path of Online Buyers in 2012” says just that.  Instead of social media, the report found that the most effective tools driving sales are email marketing and search marketing.  Imagine the chaos that will ensue when this news hits the social media gurus!

This Can’t Be True, Can It?

There has been so much hype about social media that many people just will not believe this statement without hard numbers.  Forrester has thoughtfully put those together.

For repeat customers who bought with one touchpoint event, 13 percent were brought in by email marketing.  Another 20 percent were lured by direct website visits.  Even for two or more touchpoint visitors, 17 percent cited email as the originating factor of their visit.  For new customers, paid search mattered most in terms of initial draw.

You will notice that social media did not rank in the top of these numbers.  In fact, social media are not meaningful sales drivers according to the Forrester study. Read More »

Making Changes Without Taking Huge Risks

There is no doubt about it, change is stressful.  Even good change brings a certain amount of stress, and bad change can paralyze a person–or an ad campaign.  However, this brings us to a dilemma:  if you do not change occasionally, you do not grow and you or your ad or product eventually wither and die.  How can you change positively but without taking the high level of risk involved in sudden, drastic measures?

For yourself, gradual change may be best.  Why not apply that thinking to your advertising strategy, as well?  Gradual changes based on time-honored and proven techniques may be just the thing to give your ad campaign some new life.
