Posted by Dani Buckley

April 12, 2017


The call-to-action (CTA) could quite possibly be one of the most overlooked components to any online marketing strategy. Whether you’re running retargeting banner ads, paying for a sponsored Facebook post, or just putting the right buttons on your site or your own blog, a CTA can make or break your marketing campaign.

April 5, 2017

 

It’s that time of year again… probably my favorite time of year now that I live in Seattle (and no longer Florida, the land of no seasons except summer). The temperatures are warming up, the sun is shining, flowers are blooming, and people are starting to come out of their winter hibernation.

The Tracking URL: When to Use it and Why it Matters

Posted by Dani Buckley

March 24, 2017

 

Marketing automation software is created to make our lives as marketers easier and more effectivethough sometimes the plethora of tools can be a little overwhelming and we might even forget to use some along the way. I’m here today to remind you of the small but mighty tracking URL. Let’s dive in with some Q&A:

What is a tracking URL?

A tracking URL is a normal URL that has a “token” associated with it (on the end of the URL). It allows traffic driven to a page or website to be properly sourced depending on the individual place(s) you used it. When used with a marketing automation platform, like HubSpot for example, it will be seen in your Sources Report where it separates the different traffic from each URL.

March 3, 2017

As with most marketing and sales questions, there is a short and long answer to this question. The short answer is: as many times as it takes. The longer answer isn’t quite so black and white.

Let’s start with exploring why someone would ask this question in the first place. What I’ve found in my many years, working with companies of all shapes and sizes, is that there is a natural inclination to treat inbound (or website or marketing) leads very differently than prospects identified and cultivated by individual salespeople. This is especially true for those industries that still rely heavily on cold calling.

5 Reasons Salespeople Aren’t Using CRMs Effectively

Posted by Dani Buckley

January 11, 2017

Ask any sales manager, salesperson, or business leader about CRMs and you’re likely to get mixed reviews. Most agree they are a necessary piece of technology, but that’s about all they might agree on. Managers tend to feel like they must have a CRM for proper reporting, but they've likely had a bad experience in the past due to lack of adoption by sellers. At the same time, many salespeople have had at least one poor experience with a CRM in their career. Meanwhile, a lucky few have found the key to effective and successful CRM adoption and usage.

Posted by Dani Buckley

June 20, 2016

One recent article from Think With Google that especially resonated with me was a dive into the importance of giving consumers relevant content and information in their “I-want-to-know moments”. In particular, on mobile.

Posted by Dani Buckley

June 10, 2016

When it comes to blogging as part of your inbound marketing strategy, the world really is your oyster. I don’t ever like to say there is one type of post or content that is better than another.

You’ll never know if one kind of blog post will work with your target persona unless you try—so why not mix it up?

To help you get the inspiration flowing, I’ve outlined five different types of blog posts that every writer and marketer should explore. These are some of the most common, and are proven to work. So, if you find yourself constantly sticking to one kind of blog post, review this list and give another one a shot. You might be surprised at the response you get!
