Optimizing Your Digital Content for Global, Mobile and Social Users
In our always-connected world, the new reality is that marketing prospects will complete 70% of their buyer's journey before engaging with a sales team. This presents marketers with a new set of challenges. They must employ creative ways to engage potential customers and convert them into leads, such as taking advantage of non-traditional digital channels to generate awareness and influence. The corporate website is the pivotal touch point, becoming a “virtual” sales rep to deepen the relationship with prospects who aren’t ready to take a sales call. Having the right content and offering a rich, engaging experience become imperative marketing goals.
