Wednesday, October 16, 2019    Comments (0)    Permalink  
Chances are, if you’re a business owner, you use email to engage with your audience in one way or another. After all, regardless of the size of your operation, your industry, or your technical savvy, email can be one of the most basic methods for communicating with the masses.

7 Ways to Segment Email Lists

Monday, October 14, 2019    Comments (0)    Permalink  
When it comes to email marketing, determining customer segments within your database of contacts is second only to actually generating the list of names and email addresses. Think about it this way: would you rather talk to a room of twenty people (with only five actually interested in what you have to say) or take those five interested parties into a smaller, more private room? Of course you want to speak only to the five people who care rather than wasting time and energy on people you know aren’t interested. In the game of email marketing, the success of your campaigns is...

Why It's Important To Iterate Your Website's Design And UX

Wednesday, September 25, 2019    Comments (0)    Permalink  
Just in case you were wondering, the saying "If it's not broke, don't fix it" shouldn't be applied to your website. Here's why: your website essentially begins to break the moment you launch it. It's like driving a new car off the lot – the second you hit the highway, the car loses 20% of its value. This isn't a pessimistic take or anything like that, it's simply the state of doing business in our increasingly digital world. Tactics, design trends and most significantly, user experience requirements dictate it's best practice to iterate your website and its design as...

5 Steps to Conducting Successful A/B Tests for Your Landing Pages

Thursday, September 05, 2019    Comments (0)    Permalink  
As a marketer in Cyprus, it’s often tempting to base your marketing decisions off of your initial “gut feeling”. More often than not, those who solely rely on their intuition to predict what will make people click and convert will fall short. In return, this may lead to detrimental results for your marketing campaigns. Rather than trying to guess what will lead to the best results for your next marketing campaign, it’s time to run an A/B test (if you’re not running them already). A/B testing can take your marketing efforts to the next level and help customers move more effectively throu...

In recent years, voice search has been dominating progressively the search landscape.

It’s been a busy few months in the world of Google+! Launched in 2010, Google+ was the latest attempt of creating a social media platform similar to Facebook.
