What We Think

Email filters have become extremely effective at parsing what they believe to be important. They are equally effective at hiding what should consume less of our attention. As someone who receives hundreds of emails a day at work, I am eternally grateful. As a digital marketer, I am not pleased.

This summer when my older son was home from college, we all found ourselves in the car with my younger son who was behind the wheel armed with his learner’s permit. As the car stopped, my older son proceeded to provide a mock Yelp review of the driver and the passenger experience. It was hilarious. But it made me realize that I was in the car with two cohorts who depend almost exclusively on the reviews of their peers. I also realized that Yelp was so done for Millennials and GenZers.

You’ve heard it before—a smart digital marketing plan can play an important role in awareness advertising. Yeah, yeah, yeah. But for a local telecom, digital marketing can make your company seem ever-present (a big plus when you are a local carrier) but it can also help you strategically pinpoint potential users. And this isn’t theory. This is fact. We’ve witnessed client choices that have impacted awareness, all because they undervalued a sound digital strategy. Never forget the beauty of digital. It can offer awareness building to a broad audience much like TV and outdoor or to a surgically selective audience like direct mail.

Pet Age recently reported that retailers are ignoring customers’ social media requests. In fact, retailers failed to respond to more than 80 percent of consumer questions and requests on social media in the last year, most notably during the holiday season. That includes pet retailers, too.

Here’s yet another article about marketing to Millennials. You already know they use social media. An article from the Wall Street Journal shows that Millennials spend almost 8 hours a day using social media. What you may not know is that one of the biggest mistakes in marketing is lumping Millennials into one big category. According to research by Curalate, there are 14 distinct Millennial personas, and at Trone Brand Energy, we know how to create content to get the attention of each one of them. There’s a Millennial called “The Boss Babe.” She probably has a dog. So does “the Quarter-Life Crisis,” because pets make everything better.
