Marketing

How to create an energetic office culture
What is there to not love about America? I am blessed with a life of travelling backwards and forwards from Australia to Atlanta, meeting amazing people and having a team of individuals in my office that are very talented and uber cool.
A view that has a new perspective - imperative to 2017 competitive landscape
Sitting in the Atlanta office, with the weather outside mild compared to other years, I am looking at the view with a new perspective.

We run an international marketing firm, but so what? What does that actually mean? The last few days in the office before the end of the year are the best days in which to look back at the year you have just had and think about the year ahead. What are you going to do differently? How are you going to stand out from the crowd? What is going to keep you and your team motivated? What road blocks do you envisage coming up and how can you get around them before they become a problem? What changes are you making to your business?
Unlocking The Creative Mind
Have you ever felt like you are caught simply doing what is trendy or routine? Once success is trending in an area, everyone flocks to it. It might be time to separate from the pack and find your creative side, especially when it comes to marketing. Here are a couple ways to ignite the imaginative side of your brain:

Everyone Thinks They Are A Marketer
Have you ever walked up to an electrician and told him “I think you should cross those two wires?”...the answer is probably no. Why is this? Because in that situation you are not qualified to make that sort of suggestion and he is the expert. However, in many businesses - especially small ones, everyone offers up their ideas freely on what marketing should be doing.

Here are 3 reasons why you should not let this happen to your business:

What To Expect In 2017
With a dynamic presidential election and various shifts in major advertising platforms, 2016 has been a year full of drastic change in the marketing world. As media advertising spend is down and declining compared to previous years, we can only suspect that 2017 will bring just as many, if not more, changes.

Key things to look out for in 2017:
How To Set Up A Successful Google AdWords Campaign
Step 1: Develop a Brief

Before anything can be accomplished you need to understand the goals of the campaign. Start by asking yourself a series of questions.
Not Your Grandpa's Marketing
Still unsure of how effective your marketing efforts are?

Marketing has changed dramatically over the past few years. There is less ambiguity and uncertainty and more confidence in marketing tactics and strategies nowadays. This is largely due to the increased focus and availability of data to track results.
Atlanta Marketing is Too Technology Driven and Less Personalized
Technology has revolutionized marketing and where it is heading in the next few months, let alone years, no-one knows.

But what I do know is that all of a sudden, we have forgotten something that is really, really important - and that is people are human and the human connection will never die.

Over the course of a year, Marketing Eye writes about 100 to 200 marketing strategies. They are integrated in approach, and incorporate the use of technology, data science, creative, and human elements. I recently was given a marketing strategy from another company that had done some work for a new client, and I literally threw it in the bin. It could be a strategy for any company, and all it did was talk about the technologies that the company needed to "buy" to achieve their goals.
Ready To Roll Out Your 2017 Marketing Plan?
As the end of the year is rapidly approaching, businesses are scrambling to finalize their budgets, projects, and overall 2016 business goals.

Unfortunately, many businesses get lost in the chaos of closing out the year and forget to fully prepare a marketing strategy for the upcoming year. Hit the ground running in 2017 with a strategic marketing plan designed to guide your company to the next level.  
Market your business through influence
It's no secret the world has made the shift to social media - it's time for your business to follow suit. 
There is so much talk on influencer marketing that at long last, they have a point, and in most effective marketing strategies, there is a new category that has to be integral to the overall tactical marketing outcomes of a business. 
Are You Getting Caught In The Mess?
It is easy to fall behind the times in this fast moving world of digital marketing and advertising. There are several easy and painless ways to stay current and put yourself on the map!  
Why Brave People Choose Risk For High Reward
There comes a point in every marketers career where they look at where they have been, and where they hope to go to next.
Are You Sick of Marketing?
More to the point, are you sick of doing your own marketing and not focusing on your business? In every business development meeting I have, I always ask “who’s doing your marketing now?” Often I hear that the founder is performing all if not most of the current marketing activities. Nine times out of ten they are trying to: run the business/grow the business, manage staff, manage payroll, come up with new product ideas, and more, all while doing what they can with marketing. It’s too much for a growing business.
The Psychology Of Color In Marketing And How it Can Help You
Over the years the psychology of color has been a controversial topic.  Marketers and scientists alike have formed connections between the colors and reactions the human subconscious has towards them. However, although there have been many studies to support certain aspects, there has also been a disconnect.  This disconnect between person to person has been attributed to experiences, personal preference, culture, and upbringing.  All of these aspects influence a person's opinion about certain colors and therefore make some studies unreliable from the get go.  However, although there is a noticeable disconnect, some marketers swear by colors and the persuasion they have over consumers.  According to a study done in 2006 in the journal Management Decision, people can make 62% to 90% of their snap decisions about products based on color alone.

Let’s delve into the wonderful world of colors, what do most psychologists say about colors and the power they have over branding?
Best 15 Websites for Creative Marketers
It's not by accident that creative marketers are paid more money, are in greater demand and hold the key to a successful marketing campaign. 

Some are born that way and can come up with a creative campaign on the way to work, other's like to spend their time being inspired by the environment in which they live in, and of course, the one's who are time poor and like to surf the net, find the internet a great source for inspiration.

I personally like a combination of both and collaborative creative ideas always seem to draw the best inspiration from each of the different sources.

If you are looking for inspiration online, here is where I like to go:
