Marketing in the Age of Participation

Posted on June 17, 2017 by Lisa Phillips

There is no question that the key to a brand’s success is the experience it provides to customers. Marketing in the Age of Participation extends this experience far beyond conventional advertising.

Gone are the days when a brand can motivate consumers to take action to purchase through conventional advertising. Commercials, print and radio advertising are more often than not being ignored in favor of media that embraces participation.

Now that the consumer is in the driver’s seat of the experience they are having with all forms of media, if they are not entertained, learning something, or have an avenue for two-way communication, they are moving on, rapidly. Consumers are actively seeking engagement. What an incredible opportunity to PARTICIPATE with your customers!

What is a brand to do?

Shift the focus of your marketing away from advertising and churning out tons of meaningless repetitive content that is static and attempts to sell. Instead, create content that is authentic and relevant. Consider capturing the EXPERIENCE your products provide consumers, express the value of ENGAGING with your brand, share your knowledge, history, passion about your industry. Consider sharing why you even created it, the problem it solves, the trials and tribulations of coming to market. How using your product will benefit people, community and families.

Tying the experience back to your brand is the game consumers may embrace participating in! It also has a far greater chance of being memorable.

Leverage every idea across multiple forms of content. Do this by creating content visually, audibly and literally.

Above all else create content that is REAL in that there is a slice of relatable humanity. People actually seeing themselves reflected in your content would be ideal. This can create an emotional connection that has the potential to gain an AUDIENCE. Think about that!!! What better way to continue engaging with potential customers once they become audience members. Now you’ve unlocked the potential of having conversations that become two way exchanges as opposed to creating an ad that is static without any opportunity for engagement.

Drawing people to you because you are speaking their language will yield engagement! Without this, your marketing efforts could fly by unnoticed. Even if you are participating in tons of social media…

Converting an engaged audience, creating fans from an engaged audience and having repeat business from an engaged audience is marketing in the age of participation!

We get it!

Is It Possible to Create a Valuable & Unique Mobile App?

Posted on April 7, 2017 by Lisa Phillips

Creating a valuable and unique mobile app comes down to clarifying consumer’s pain points and then meeting those with a tangible solution.

Meet PeakaVue.  The concierge city guide assisting residents and visitors find the best-in-class businesses within a geo community.

It is unique because it is curated.  There isn’t anything else that exists currently where there is a subset of the best-in-class of all brands within a particular community.

It’s also not populated with any reviews, ratings or content generated by pedestrians. It is a space that affords a brand their opportunity to express their branding and tell their story.

The Data Supporting Mobile Marketing

Posted on February 26, 2017 by Lisa Phillips

Excerpts taken from an article by Oracle:
Oracle/Power-of-one/mobile marketing

The Power Is Now In Marketing’s Hands
“90% of a consumer’s time while on a mobile device is done so via an app.”

“… Given the fact there are now more mobile devices on the planet than there are human beings, it’s pretty obvious that engaging with customers via mobile should be a priority. As for apps, consider this staggering statistic: 90% of a consumer’s time while on a mobile device is done so via an app.”

And according to Gartner: “Consumers see mobile apps as their main digital interaction with their favorite brands.”

Customer experience is — as Forbes put it — the future of marketing.

“The bottom line is that providing the best possible customer experience is para-mount for success. Consumers have stated that they will spend more money based on the experience they receive from a given brand. Conversely they will bail on a transaction or not make an intended purchase because of a poor experience.”

A New Engagement Model

“According to Forrester, with mobile in play, consumers now move from discovering a brand to doing research, making a purchase, and using a product within minutes if not seconds. And they expect this experience to be not only possible, but positive.”

“Today’s customers demand a seamless, integrated brand experience delivered to them with ultimate simplicity and relevancy in real time. To deliver, mobile demands a new engagement model.”

“And mobile apps, while powerful, shouldn’t be managed and operated in a silo. Instead, mobile apps should be orchestrated as part of a cross-channel marketing program to create highly curated experiences for the customer.”

“I think the problem is we’re creating content for content’s sake,” says Carlos Hidalgo, CEO and Principal of Annuitas. “What we need to think about is, we don’t need to create more content—and I keep seeing stats that our budgets are increasing, we’re creating more content, we’re doing this, we’re doing that… I just want to say: everybody stop. And let’s start creating relevant content.”

“No matter the device, they want to pick up where they left off. The consumer now expects to be able to complete any action from their phone/tablet.”

“Mobile consumer experiences cannot be truncated any longer. That experience simply doesn’t align with expectations.”

So there you have it. I believe most of what Oracle has said in this article to be accurate. Having been in the advertising industry since 1986, this reality has been brewing for some time. Luckily, as the laws of economics remain true, demand has driven supply and the situation gave birth to the tools to meet consumers’ expectations in the form of MOBILE APPS.

Apps come in all shapes and sizes. They can be designed to have multiple functions and capabilities. I chose to design one to fuel commerce in a macro-community. So far so good, modern marketers are choosing to become members because they see how PeakaVue is there to create engagement, connect with their customers and optimize interactions that attract and retain ideal customers.

Amplifying Your Distinction To Be Seen!

Posted on February 23, 2017 by Lisa Phillips

I believe in amplifying differences. It hasn’t ever appealed to me to fit in by being similar. Today, that couldn’t be more important when marketing and branding Best-In-Class brands.

When developing Madheart Marketing  –  I committed to going 100% rogue and decided to look away from what has become common practice in tech and marketing (test and repeat… yawn).  Instead, we focus on bringing value, authenticity and relevance to our select clients.  The ones who simply stand out because they are unique trail blazers with rich stories to tell. It is for them that we are committed to serve creatively effective campaigns.

Working with Best-In-Class brands and Thought Leaders who have founded them is an incredible honor!!

Would you qualify? I would welcome an opportunity to chat!

Mobile Marketing Is Smart!

Posted on February 10, 2017 by Lisa Phillips

Engaged communities are already on mobile. This is where brands and fans are coming together outside the confines of their physical locations and connecting virtually, ‪24/7. Are you there to embrace them?

You have two choices: Direct this activity to your brand; or miss the boat.

We are marketing in the Age of Participation. Mobile devices have replaced computers as our go-to tools of infinite access. It’s become the “smart” choice due to freedom, functionality and connection.

Is your business embracing marketing participation on mobile?

If you are only using your device as a gateway to a search engine on the web, you are missing out on the awesome abilities this technology could bring to you and your business.

Join the millions of people who are embracing marketing on native apps. They are doing so because apps can bring focus to the overwhelming amount of information on the internet. Think of them as having a guide to a specific destination.

Madheart created a native mobile app for the the Conejo Valley in Southern California called PeakaVue. It has captured over 300 of the best-in-class brands for the local residents, businesses and visitors to discover and connect to. The 300 brands that are found on PeakaVue have a leg up being discovered because they are a part of a curated subset of local businesses.

Here are three smart things you can do to be represented well on mobile.

• Look for opportunities for your brand to be represented on mobile apps.

• Make sure your website is optimized for mobile.

• Does creating a native mobile app for your brand make sense?
