November 14: Google Partners B2B Marketing Event

B2B Marketing

You are invited to come to our Google Partners Connect event on B2B Marketing Strategies

What is This?

Google Event is when Radar Hill hosts a free live webinar focused on a specific area or industry of online marketing. The live stream lasts about one hour, with plenty of time afterwards for questions and answers.

B2B Marketing

This event is focused on B2B online marketing. Decision-makers are 75% of the way through their purchase process before even reaching out to a brand, and when they are searching for a business to hire, 68% of the research is digitally driven. There is an average of 12 searches online before engaging with a brand.This means it is vital to be online, ready for prospective clients to find you.

Another thing to note is that using multi-screen is the default for B2B researches, but mobile searches are increasing. Having your ads and website adapted to fit both these mediums will maximize its impact. For example, 20% of searches are now done via voice search, and most Google Assistant requests are asked in natural speech. Having content that matches these search styles ensures that your digital presence is as effective as possible.

B2B marketing is hard. Get your online presence to the right person, at the right time. In this digital era, relying purely on word-of-mouth is not enough. Come to this Google workshop about B2B marketing strategies, and we will help you to implement effective methods.

Digital Marketing

Last year, digitally savvy small businesses were almost 3x more likely to increase calls, leads, and sales inquiries. Not only that, but the top 20% most digitally advanced businesses earned 2x as much revenue per employee.

Make Your Life Easier with Office 365 Email

Email has changed drastically in the last few decades. It is no longer being used to send plain text onto a single device that is checked a couple times a day, and support was relatively simple, as there wasn’t much involved in the whole process. Today however, emails have gotten a lot flashier, bigger, and much more frequent. This means that it takes a lot more to develop and sustain these programs. And that isn’t even touching on the

Why the GDPR is a Good Thing

In the previous post, the GDPR was introduced, and what it means for businesses to be compliant. In this article, it will be discussed why the GDPR is beneficial. Many people mostly only irritated by it, in a professional capacity, but personally, it affords EU citizens many new rights and control over their data.

With the GDPR, the balance of power between businesses and the public is made more equal. It ensures that there is clear transparency for people to know what is happening to their data. Not only can people now know exactly what is happening with their personal information, but they can decide exactly what happens to it. There are more details in the section below, but essentially, more control over one’s personal data = good.

The GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation – is regulation coming into effect on 25 May 2018. It has not made the news much in Canada, but it has the potential to affect every country in the world. So what is it exactly?

We have two more blog posts about the GDPR, see here for the effect on Canada and Email blog, and here for why the GDPR is a good thing blog. If you’ve been hearing about it and been terrified about it, you might not be thinking it’s a good thing, but ultimately, this is going to protect people’s data, and give people more power when dealing with companies of all sizes.
