Digital Marketing at its Best!
I recently returned from my first out-of-state digital marketing conference in South Beach Miami. It was an amazing trip and such a good learning experience. From the top-notch speaker presentations to the hospitality shown by the staff, Interactivity Digital 2013 was #AMAZEBALLS!
My day job as an Internet Marketing Specialist at SelectBlinds.com comes with some awesome perks. Perks like getting approval to attend a premier digital marketing conference in South Beach Miami. If you are unfamiliar with the conference, it was put on by the awesome team at Interactivity Marketing from Conway, South Carolina.
So What Did I Learn?
Good question! Nowadays online marketing can be difficult and covers a wide range of specialties. The days of gaming the system to get ahead have been long gone for some time now. If you are truly trying to operate a sustainable business online, it really does take a dedicated, holistic approach when it comes to marketing.
This means that, in order to compete online in competitive verticals, you really need to be paying attention to all of these aspects of your business:
- Customer Service
- Unique Selling Propositon
- Website Design/Functionality
- Social Media
- Email Marketing
- Direct Mail
- Traditional Advertising
What was my favorite part?
One of the best things about the conference was that I left with some very actionable tips and strategies to help our business continue to grow. Mission accomplished!
Another favorite part was getting to finally meet some of the people that I have been talking to online for a couple years now. It was a trip to see some people that I feel like I know, but have never actually met in real life.
Some of the leading digital marketers in the industry spoke at #ID2013.
