In 2015 content, is more important than ever. Many people will be adopting a more Omni channel approach to sourcing products and services. This means that they will be using all channels available to them to ensure that they are getting the right product or service for them. Content will play an enormous part in this Omni channel engagement. More people are heading online to search for information. As you know, people want information at their fingertips. If you can be one of several websites that offer this content you are in a far better position to close the sale than those that are not.
Omni Channel Marketing

It, therefore, makes perfect sense that your company is present within as many channels as possible. The growth in search within social media is also adding to this Omni channel approach. A good web marketing firm will tell you that your business should have a presence in as many relevant channels as possible. There are a few channels that you should be considering; organic search, social media and news websites. All are channels that your customers may frequent on a regular basis.
Mobile First Marketing
Do your customers use their mobile devices to seek out information? If so, you need a website that can be responsive and tailor its appearance depending on the device it is used from. A huge barrier to sales can be an unresponsive website, especially if it is being viewed on a mobile device. Another element to consider is how your potential customers are using their mobile device. You will find that their customer journey is different from those who are viewing your website from their desktop or laptop computer.
These digital marketing tactics may already form part of your digital strategy. 2015 will be the year that you hone these tactics for improved responses and conversions.
