The Intro


Why Take the Digital Plunge?

One of the first rules of marketing is to be where your customers are. In this day & age that's online.

Gone are the days when a business could rely solely on a constant deployment of newspaper, radio and billboard ads to achieve their marketing and business goals. That ‘spray and pray’ approach to marketing can eat-up hard-earned dollars pretty quickly. By embracing digital marketing solutions businesses can target with laser-precision, gain better insight into customers, and finally have marketing results that are measurable! #SayNoToSprayAndPray

Times have changed, and so have your customers. With 87% of Canadian households connected to the internet and broadband internet access for 85% of rural areas, Canada is one of the most connected countries on the planet. Canadians rank first among G7 countries, spending 35+ hours online per month, and in 2013 Canadians purchased more than $136 billion in goods and services online. Small-to-medium sized businesses are slow to adopt internet marketing, especially in rural areas, but it is becoming increasingly important that they do. There are big opportunities for businesses willing to take the plunge.

Traditional advertising takes the approach of speaking to your customers, but modern marketing requires that you speak with your customers. Social Media allows businesses to adapt to this shift in behaviour. Alberta has some of the heaviest users of social media in Canada, with 75% of Albertans using Facebook regularly. Social media is now leading the pack when it comes to what Canadians are doing online. Businesses using social media marketing can expect to see more engaged customers, more loyal brand advocates, more business insight, and more sales! Are you putting social media to work for your organization?
