A family-owned, St. Louis-based commercial printing company, The Advertisers Printing Company, proves you’re never too old for growth and change. For nearly a century, this business has stayed at the forefront of modern printing and cutting-edge technology. So why did the third- and fourth-generation owners decide to work with Atomic Revenue?
Are you thinking of redesigning your company’s website? Maybe you don’t have one yet because you feel overwhelmed by all the options, leaving you unsure of how much it should cost and which direction to take. Since prices range anywhere from a few hundred dollars for a DIY site to tens of thousands for the most complex and comprehensive websites, I’ve decided to break down the complete cost of website design, simplify the process, and help you understand what to expect.
Since your business’s digital footprint has never been more important, you took the first step to make sure it’s the best it can be with an audit. At Atomic Revenue we call these Digital Operations Audits. But now what? What did you do with the information gathered from that audit? Now you have all this info, but where do you start?
Digital Operations encompasses your entire digital footprint and the results from your digital marketing, sales, and customer advocacy efforts. Each element of your digital presence must not only have its own strategy but work in correlation with every other element. Your website is your primary piece of online real estate, but how does social media marketing feed into that?
What is your content strategy to drive qualified leads? How does marketing automation play into developing those leads to be sales-ready? Does your online presence encourage your community to advocate on your behalf? If you’re not sure, it may be time to rethink your digital operations approach.
As more business moves online, people are working remotely and using digital tools more and more. The digital strategy conversation is increasingly relevant to today’s workplace. As a piece of this, it is important to understand where data comes from and if it is correct. More specifically, developing an understanding of what the data means brings strength to any digital strategy.
For decades, a nationwide commercial real estate brokerage specializing in triple-net lease property investments was very successful without a lot of marketing. Up until the last few years, they had healthy inbound leads from repeat clientele and referrals and required very few lead-generating activities. However, as competition increased and the market evolved with online services, business began to stagnate. That’s when they decided to try digital marketing to increase revenue, and, after a year of allocating time and money to the effort, their attempt failed.
When considering your leadership team, it’s important to reflect on your company’s values. What do your customers and employees value about your organization? Is your business model still relevant today? Will it be relevant to future generations?
When initially discussing this post with my Atomic Revenue colleague Steph Nissen, I envisioned a flashy, trend-laden piece that would have readers licking their chops ready to launch into the new decade with the glitziest social media updates ever – #2020vision!
The goal of digital operations (re digital marketing, digital sales, and digital customer service) – no matter what year it is, who our target market is, or what technologies emerge – is to get and keep your audience’s attention.
If “customer satisfaction” is the main goal you strive for in your business, then you are severely missing the mark. Unhappy customers almost always, without a doubt, complain and tell others about poor experiences with your company, while satisfied customers are generally just that – content and happy with your product or service but usually very quiet about it!
