By: Joyce Ho

2018 is coming to an end and we likely can all attest to an increase in technology use in our homes and on our bodies (wearables). We have been thrown into the age of personal assistants and many technologies have evolved to increase automation further with the goal of improving our quality of life.

Smart Speakers

Google home, Amazon Alexa, Microsoft Cortana, Apple Siri, you name the rest. Smart speakers were a big hit when they first came out and you can only imagine better and more coming in the new year. 31% of smart speaker owners say they spent more money on Amazon/Google since getting their smart speaker and more people are buying straight from smart speakers. Businesses are all excited about integrating their marketing strategies into voice search because smart speaker optimization (SSO) is now becoming a thing! Search ‘intent’ has become much more personal with the use of voice search and people are using questions more than statements. “Where is the nearest fast food restaurant?” More and more people are relying on voice search, so marketers need to focus on understanding the customer behaviour and applying the right tactics into their SSO. We’re excited to see what extensions will be added to increase the functionality of these products in 2019.

6 Tips to Create an Effective Landing Page

By: Patricia Poblete

In today’s highly competitive world, online presence is unquestionably an important marketing leverage for every business. And as you dive deeper into the territory of digital marketing, you will soon realize that marketing your business and reaching your goals require more than just a website and social media accounts. Whether your objective is to increase traffic, capture interest, or increase sales, there are several marketing tools that can be used when building effective marketing campaigns. A landing page is one of the many marketing tools.

What’s a landing page?

If you search the term “Landing page” online, you will receive numerous results with general definitions; such as HubSpot’s landing page definition: “a web page that allows you to capture a visitor’s information through a lead-capture form” or Web Ascender definition: “a part of a first impression...your handshake or greeting, or smile.” Simply put, a landing page is a web page that a consumer “lands” on after clicking a hyperlink from a different page, search result, or most often, a search advertisement. Landing pages are often “stand-alone” pages - in other words, these pages have no links to any other sources or navigations (such as, your business’ website). The purpose of a landing page is to essentially move visitors down the sales funnel and eventually make them a lead. An effective landing page should be transactional; determined by its engagement or conversion rate. As a result, making a purchase, giving a call, or subscribing to the business are some examples of a “transaction.” In that case, a landing page should have a clear and direct intent with specific information of what the business is offering to “push” potential customers to convert.
