  11. 11. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE Some of the things we’ve learned… • Being complacent, rolling with the herd, gets you no-place • Doing nothing, also gets you no-place • Your reputation and your brand are critical • Authenticity and sincerity will always win • Unless you truly forge a relationship, you are only as good as the memory of your last transaction
  12. 12. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE Marketing your business or yourself should not be a perfunctory process. –adjective 1. performed merely as a routine duty; hasty and superficial, courtesy 2. lacking interest, care, or enthusiasm; indifferent or apathetic

  18. 18. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE The world vs. your world
  19. 19. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE A new world view… • Economics have changed our values and what's important to us • We have returned to our safe zone, family • We favor intimacy over excess • We seek activities closer to home; exploring our own cities • We seek economical holidays • We have a renewed interest in the past • We have a new relationship with the environment • Others??
  20. 20. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE Bottom Line: These changes work in favor of every person in this room. How will you capitalize on it?
  21. 21. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE What else has changed?
  22. 22. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE What else has changed? The way we search, research, the devices we use, and the future generations.
  23. 23. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE What people expect • We connect on new devices; smaller and different screen • We expect relevant and consistent experiences • We expect speedy access • We expect clear content developed for us • We expect things to be where we anticipate them to be • We trust the opinions of others like us – More than we trust you • We expect honest presentations • We have very little patience

  33. 33. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE How Google Determines Real-time relevance Source: Bryan Landaburu, Fuze Google Presentation SMX West 2010
  34. 34. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE Back to reality… How do you find your customers? …or your thoughts on how they find you?
  35. 35. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE How do you find[and keep] customers? • Traditional Marketing • Search Marketing • Co-marketing • Traditional advertising • Social Media • Word of mouth • Loyalty programs • Reengagement campaigns • Retargeting • Referral programs • Communication plans • Unique positioning statements • Partnering
  36. 36. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE Site reviews… Quality is subjective, but all over the board.
  37. 37. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE What features do customers care about? Give them what they want…don’t try to steer from the passenger seat.
  38. 38. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE I argue, people only want this from you • Realistic presentation of what you offer • Professional and clear photos & videos – If low-fi, then they better be from real people • Usable directions & maps • Reservation options (preferably online) • Real time communications • Actionable promotions` • Ways to connect with you and stay in touch, passively • Light reading, zero thinking • Seasonal information • How to prepare for current conditions • Reviews and real peoples perspectives • A tour of some sort • A way to plan/share a trip
  39. 39. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE What they don’t probably care about… • Your assumption of what they should be looking for • Ornate presentations • Music and spinning objects • Lots of copy and content (a picture is worth a thousand words) • Last update 2005 • Irrelevant photos • Having to keep up with you on their own • Your website the only source of information • Your history (unless its relevant to their experience) • Your corporate structure
  40. 40. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE If your online strategy doesn’t match what customers want, what are you doing about it? [insert excuses here]
  41. 41. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE Justification[excuses] for non-action • It’s too expensive • I can just do it myself • I don’t want to do it myself • Nobody cares about this • My customers are older • That’s not where my customers come from • What we have is good enough • I am not tech-ie • I don’t have time
  42. 42. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE Maybe some of those are true, today.
  43. 43. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE Maybe some of those are true, today. Remember evolution is constant. Let’s talk about action, tomorrow…
  44. 44. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE 30ish tools in [about]30 minutes a blend of tactics, tools, new, old, yada yada.
  45. 45. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE Blog, like your career depends on it. You don’t need to be, or hire, a writer to have a good blog. The effects are far reaching…
  46. 46. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE
  47. 47. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE E-mail marketing Critical piece, why? Because believe it or not, I don’t remember who you are. Aww….sad.

  50. 50. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE
  51. 51. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE
  52. 52. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE MicroSites Sometimes you need a specific place to tell a story. For advertising, for niche, to develop more content, SEO…lots of benefits.
  53. 53. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE Customer example…
  54. 54. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE ihateplascotrac.com
  55. 55. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE Testing Comparing bananas & oranges. a/b, multivariate, cross-browser, eye tracking, heat maps, wow.
  56. 56. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE People decide if they like what they see online in less than 1 second Credibility and trustworthiness is determined in 6-8 seconds
  57. 57. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE In those 6 seconds… Do I trust you? What do you do? What should I do next?

  66. 66. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE Research It’s a vast universe of information out there. Don’t make uninformed decisions. And remember, your best source of information may not be in your own industry/niche.
  67. 67. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE

  70. 70. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE
  71. 71. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE Analytics Absolute necessity…we are just at the beginning. (fyi – google isnt the only option)
  72. 72. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE More than tools • Do you track how your site is trending? • Do you know what your top products are by sales, by channel? • Do you know what your ROI is on your PPC terms? • Are you looking for click-fraud? • Are you reacting to interim interest? • Are you customizing your site based on what you know about someone? • Are you tracking what people say about you/your brand? • Are you monitoring your competition? • Analytics are more than hits & visits and 1-size does not fit all

  78. 78. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE Eye Tracking Results - simulated We ran a simulated eye tracking test on the site using this version of the homepage. Simulation reveals where peoples point of focus is and how they interact with the layout Results next…
  79. 79. twitter: #NFRA | @FUZE AttentionWizard Review Simulation shows mouse movement, and simulated target points that the average user sees. Points out where the current focal point of the site is for the average user Points out where the most important message should be Not 100% accurate…this is a simulation.
