The Dilemma Of a Digital Marketer

The dilemma of a digital marketer

 

As a digital marketer,  I often get the question of what exactly I do, how my  typical workday looks like etc, but I never seem to give a straight answer 

Consequences? Drowned in the assumption that my everyday life is all fun with no real work.

It is true that I get to do a lot of awesome work, but believe me, it’s not always a walk in the park.. which is the reason today I decided to walk you through my typical day of work.

So, first things first

Let me start by explaining what is digital marketing, as most people believe that is a job in which I get paid for spending my day chatting and making new friends on social media.

Technically, they are not completely wrong… for I do spend most of my day on social media, and yes I do chat with people and make new friends … but wait… it is not what you think it is!

The purpose behind this is to talk to people like you, understand your challenges and pains in order to find a way to solve it.

So, you see, digital marketing is all about finding the right channels to tell your company’s story, join discussions with people to build relationships, gain trust to establish your brand identity and eventually convert those people into customers.

Now that we both have the same understanding of what digital marketing is,

let us move to my typical work day

In the morning, I head to the office, check my emails and my social accounts to address any urgent matter quickly. Later, I check the latest news, the rest I put into my daily actions list.

Mid-morning, I will go over a team humble to get a look at the analytics reports. We go over the metrics to understand where our company is standing in order to improve our next work. Towards lunch, I do some research and continue to move down my lists of next action to-dos

Tip: Daily research is an essential part of any digital marketer work day. It is important to stay on top of trends, read related blogs to your industry, search for interesting stories to understand your customers’ interests, their pain and the challenges in order to establish your company as the creative solution to their problems

Mid-day, I will monitor our online channels, plan the daily posts, prepare the blog and go over the strategy to make sure our work is aligned with our goals.

Late in the day I have meetings with clients, understand their worries, give my recommendations and so on. Afterward, I will work on preparing lead nurturing email campaigns, follow up with previous ones in order to ensure a consistent flow of leads and clients.

Tip:  The follow-up is crucial for digital marketers. Getting insights on email marketing campaign, open rates, traffic, blog visits and bounce rates is important as it helps in refining the work to stay on top of numbers.

Your way to brand legacy

augmania,blog,ar, branding

Can you tell me one characteristic that made you decide to pick a brand and stick with it? So can I, so can everyone.

When you go Christmas shopping or fetch the best birthday gift, you visualize how perfect it matches the person you are giving it to. You can see what makes the brand special and why would it be the most convenient purchase. But why?

It is because those brands had pulled off an enormous effort into making their customers attached to them. Those efforts resulted in brand loyalty, and if you read along you’ll pull it off as well!

One major step to achieving brand loyalty is to increase your brand awareness.

Brands within the same product range are uncountable but few of them make it to the list of “known”. That is a challenge faced by almost every team launching a new product or service. The likelihood that customers recognize your brand and are able to differentiate it from similar brands is a key factor in ensuring the viability of your brand.

The higher your brand awareness is the higher your chances are to make economic moat that will gain you a level of immunity towards competitors.

At this point, you might be asking yourself how can I do that?
Social media is definitely the way to go especially that we know by 2022 total spend for digital marketing will be $120 billion!

See make your ads stand out
But that is not enough.

Making people see your ads or accidentally read the name of your brand on a label or a Facebook post won’t grant you that they will remember it or actually know a thing about it.

Bummer I know, after all the effort you’ve put in advertising to make the crowd swoon over!

What you need is for people to remember you, your uniqueness and your offer.

At a time of stiff competition, the best way to achieve this mission is to embrace the latest marketing tool a.k.a It is all about creating a unique experience for them. Augmented Reality which is what we master at Augmania and this is how we leverage it:

Image recognition feature

This feature gives you the opportunity of linking your logo or any other visual relevant to your brand to an AR experience. Imagine a customer of yours with his/her smartphone that spotted your logo on a random street poster. You can astonish them by an augmented screen enhanced clip that tells an instant story about your brand.

You will basically make your brand a walking companion whether in the streets or on store shelves, anywhere and anytime.

QR and barcode reading feature

Your QR code is your identifier right! But it is a machine readable label. It contains data that basically nobody can access. AR can make your customers decipher that information. Once your QR code is spotted, you can use augmented technology and create any informative video with virtual layers to make it thrilling and educative.

 

By using AR to enhance your brand awareness, you are literally taking every opportunity there is to make your brand visible. You are fighting oblivion by not leaving a loophole for your brand to go unnoticed.

 

This is not only a chance for you to uprise competitors and make your products reachable but to also leave an impression and higher up your brand familiarity within the masses.

Successful marketers are convinced of the importance of building and maintaining brand awareness. Thus we can see their trials to reach people by optimizing their online search and making big budgets for paid promotion like AdWords or social media paid ads. Which is important, it is an efficient way to be found amongst millions of websites and pages.

 

Engaging prospects with AR experiences, however, is your way out from extremely spendy viewability methods with no guarantee of future memory nor engagement.

All that you need is to unleash your creativity and think of the best way you want people to come across your brand. Make an appealing intro, share your core values and what makes you special. Educate the crowd about your brand while astonishing them with a spectacular reality. You’ll see how fast your 3rd party mentions will climb and how easy recognizing your products will become.
