Digital Marketing Priorities: #2 Web Site

You absolutely need to have an online base of operations, as well as a mobile version – the same as you have a head office in the physical world. Your website, like your flagship store or service location, need to first and foremost service your client’s needs, possibly your business partners’ as well, much more than it needs to serve yourself.

What should be your digital marketing priorities in 2012?

With all the new possibilities constantly emerging in digital (online, mobile, gaming…) marketing and advertising, it’s easy for marketers to get a little lost, distracted and even focus on what’s really important, what should come first, and next and so on…

Borrell suggests that where local specifically is concerned, across the country, non-ad marketing spending is 2.5x bigger than total local ad spend.

My top 10 blog posts to date in 2011

It’s almost a ritual or maybe a tradition already. Every 6 months bloggers publish their 10 best posts of the previous period.
Why do it?
I can see 2 good reasons for myself. #1 it allows me to promote my most appreciated work, which can in turn increase their readership, increasing traffic to my site (which is good for my ego), and #2 to help you discover content you may have missed that could be of interest to you.
