Wow was that 2020?

Category:Articles By Dee Carver,Cindy W,Consultants,Dee Carver,Personalized Marketing Inc,PM Inc Tags : 

As we finish out the year, we can all agree that the way we shopped, communicated, spent time with family and friends has definitely changed. There are more people working from home now than ever before. There is also more online shopping than in previous years, Black Friday, Cyber Monday were both prime examples of this, with emails of sales starting even before Halloween.

 

Misconception

With this increased number of people being online more each day, the thought that online sales would skyrocket left some with a sour taste. Due to the changes in the economy and lack of funds, many businesses had to close their doors, and some will not be able to reopen. For those that are selling online, this is a big impact on your bottom line. The concept of missing work, smaller checks, being laid off has people budgeting even more than before. This misconception was that more people online meant more sales overall, which sadly was not the case.

 

Brighter 2021?

As we round the corner into the New Year, new search engine algorithms will be implemented, people will hope for a brighter 2021 and the belief that Covid will actually get under control. I do not know if Covid will be slowed down in 2021 or not; I do know that the way we did business before Covid has changed and I do not believe it will ever return.

 

Holding Your Breath or Surging Forward

As an online retailer, yes, this includes those that may only have a couple of items for sale on a social network, you can either ‘Hold your breath’ or Surge Forward. Personally, those we work with we are surging forward into 2021. We already have items in place, such as keyword preparations for the new algorithms, increased mobility on websites, different posting dates and times, and no longer comparing what happened before 2018 to what is taking place in 2021. For authors that means continuing to write and publish your books. For others that includes increasing your ads and planning them after the bills are paid but before the next round comes through.

Making your website and social networks user friendly is another way to surge forward. Personalized Marketing Inc has stressed many times that your website should be easy for the users to navigate, easy on the eyes and device friendly. Keeping your website coding up to date is a part of it. Making sure you are where your focus group is found and paying attention to what they care about. We could speculate on the other changes that may or may not be coming in 2021 or we can plan for what we can. One of my favorite sayings is the Serenity Prayer. “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.” by Reinhold Niebuhr (n.d.)

I cannot change how we navigate online; I cannot change the economy, but I can change my approach to it and chose to keep surging forward.

Increase Your Exposure

One way that we are going to continue moving forward in 2021, is that #PMInc will be hosting guest seminars at Coffee Time Romance in February. We will be covering topics such as Marketing, Websites, Amazon, and many others. Another way that we are embracing the change from 2020 to 2021 is by several of our clients being a part of the Silver Dagger Book Tours.

 

We will also be launching our secondary site https://PMInc.Tech, which came about due to my own demise… lol… okay so its not that bad. As you may have noticed we have a branded hashtag, #PMInc which we have put out everywhere. Due to this process, #PMInc produces more results for us on Search Engines than Personalized Marketing Inc. It happens and either you learn from it and utilize it or you make the same mistakes again, I was not good at history as a teenager but now I get how important it is.

We look forward to working with you and helping your organic reach continue to grow in 2021.

Christmas Posting Is Here

Category:Consultants,Dee Carver,Personalized Marketing Inc,Real Marketing for Organic Growth,Website Design Tags : 

It’s that time of the year for last minute shopping, carolers caroling, the hustle and bustle and of course getting ready because Christmas is almost here. As I sit here and write this blog, I can hear Christmas music playing from my son’s room and it’s pretty cool. For my home, we are anticipating family coming, spending the holiday sharing. It also means planning on posting and knowing when to send them out. As with each season the time and days are shifting and will shift again after the New Year and when the seasons change. Understanding when to post is just as important, if not more than knowing what to post.

 

How do you know when to post?

 

Understanding your network and website traffic is the best way. Getting in the back-end and see what days people came or interacted with what you shared, comparing it to previous months and years. Looking at not just Google Analytics but all analytics wherever you can get them. Now, a lot of social platform tools have analytics included but it’s always best to go to the source. You will get better details and can refine the time that you want to look at.

 

What to post?

 

What to post is always a challenge, do you only post your business, products, services, or do you mix in a little personal or funny occasionally. Well that is going to depend on you and where you are sharing too. If it’s a business page, then you are going to do more focused posting. However, people want to know who they are buying from and if you are an author, what makes you tick. People love to share their thoughts and opinions, and if they love a product or hate it, you can be sure that they are telling people. So, to understand what to post about other than ‘work’, check out your group’s demographics. Are they into dogs, cats, science? Then plan on post that are about those topics.

 

Did you recently buy something new for your home and love it? Share it! Let people know what kind of person you are by the taste you have for your own home. (Speaking of which, I know two people who need to do that…) if you want to ultimately skip the ‘getting to know you’ part, then focus on their other topics. Ask them if they have tried something, encourage them to share to your profile/pages by sharing something they have put out. If you have a physical business, then share your gust posts, tag them and let them know that their thoughts mattered.

Need Help?

Today’s blog ended up being a little longer than expected but I guess that’s due to planning holiday posts for clients. If you find yourself in need of help planning those post, or wanting a fresh look for your website then please shoot us an email or give us a call. We would be happy to see how we can help you.

Sorry it’s been a couple of weeks since I posted, busy time of the year and nasty sick, could be to blame but ultimately, we’ve been spending our time on client items. Sorry we missed out on posting for CyberWeek, however, if you mention Cyber Week and Christmas when you contact us, then we will give you the 15% off discount until the end of the year.

Wow!

Category:Articles By Dee Carver,Manager,Personalized Marketing Inc,PM Inc Tags : 

So sitting here with Cindy, Personalized Marketing Inc’s manager, I am thinking about what today’s post should be about. A few weeks ago, life threw some serious curve balls and I found myself relying on Automation. Now we know how I feel about automating anything, I’m not a huge fan… Marketing, websites, newsletters, emails and anything thing you are putting out there, requires a personal touch. However, I learned a valuable lesson recently. Automation is not a bad thing. Its pretty much like any other piece of technology. It is what you make of it.

 

Granted, I schedule posts in advance and rely on automation to send them out. I plan client social media marketing material and use tools, such as Zoho Social, to send them out. However, it was not until recently that I embraced that tried and true form of ‘learning’ called ‘duh’. I spend each day planning out what we are putting on different social media networks and recently began using Google Calendar (Thanks to Cindy) for Personalized Marketing Inc items. I love my checklist and I want to see everything checked off by the end of the day. However, I was spending varying amounts of time each morning writing the same thing daily. By implementing daily and weekly tasks into the calendar, I spend less time planning and more time doing. I even found that spreadsheets have been saving me a ton of time looking stuff up by having things organized in a way that I can easily sort through.

 

I guess the focus of today’s ‘Wow’ is that 10 years later, I am still learning better ways to be more productive and offer more focused, quality time for our clients.

Personalized Marketing Inc, specifically Dee Owens, made my new web site. I’d like everyone to know she did a wonderful job! She explained everything to me as we went along (understand I’m rather technically challenged). Dee was a delight to work with and always available for any questions I had. I’m very pleased with the end result and highly recommend Dee Owens. Her knowledge is amazing! You rock, girl!

Happy Labor Day from #PMInc

#PMInc Month-Long Anniversary Final Day

Category:Anniversary,Personalized Marketing,Personalized Marketing Inc,PM Inc Tags : 
  1. First … Thank you to our Amazing Clients for without you we would not be here today.
  2. Secondly …Thank you to everyone that has participated in the event!
  3. Third … Today is the final day to enter the drawing for the #PMInc #Anniversary #Gift – Winner Announced Next Week!

Today’s Post Is Going To Be Short & Sweet

We have covered a variety of topics this month … Websites, Hosting, SSL, SEO, Emails, Marketing, and of course scheduling; each one an essential extension of the others. You cannot have a good website without a great hosting service. Your fabulous new site cannot be found without SEO, SEM, and Marketing. Your email campaigns, website, and social media networks rely on marketing. None of these would be possible without scheduling the time to do them.

Being online, at a brick-and-mortar location, operating from a Kiosk, or any way you can have a business or product to offer, means you have to consider how each element affects the other. If you have a fabulous website, awesome product and good hosting, but you do not have SEO or Marketing, how will people find you? Or if they can find you and the hosting is not the best option, will they wait on your site to load or leave to buy the item elsewhere? Maybe you have everything but forgot that all-important SSL, did you know that some sites cannot be viewed on a mobile device without one?

Having the right package is more than just checking the boxes of the items you want, it is also making sure that you have the items you need. Catering or personalizing a package for a client is more than just going “Yes, we can do that” it’s also evaluating and pointing out what YOU might also “NEED”.

Happy Labor Day from #PMInc

As for the Holiday Weekend…
Put what matters to you first, enjoy time with family and friends… we are! 
I can guarantee that the work will be waiting when you return.

See you on Tuesday… Happy Labor Day!

Thank YOU, Personalized Marketing Inc 10th Anniversary

Thank YOU – PM Inc’s 10th Anniversary

Thank YOU, Personalized Marketing Inc 10th Anniversary

 

It’s interesting when you get to celebrate your actual birthday and your company’s anniversary at the same time. You find yourself thinking about what is important to both you and the business. What core values you have for your own life and how does that compare to the company you run. We are finishing up the Month-Long Anniversary Party and I want to thank each person who has been involved with it. I also want to send a special thank you to God, my family, our clients, and Cindy, because each one is the only reason we have made it for 10 years.

As you may know, I recently went back to College to obtain a Master’s Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. I must say even though I have only been taking classes for a few short weeks, it has been enlightening. It has also reiterated Personalized Marketing Inc’s statement, “Providing Customized Services Based On Your Needs”. It has also brought focus to YOU. Personalized Marketing Inc has always been a transparent company and the services we offer are built on the clients. We also believe in going above and beyond for those we work with, which yes does often mean learning something new to help satisfy the needs of the client or reaching out to others when needed. 

10 years ago, this summer, Personalized Marketing Inc opened its doors, not because it was planned but because the need existed. I had been asked by friends for help with their marketing needs. Which then later prompted the opening of Personalized Marketing & Promotions. We are based on our clients, our service and want to continue helping those who need it. We have evolved from doing basic marketing items and small websites; to creating full scale marketing packages and beautiful eCommerce sites. In the beginning, we marketed the company as much as we did our clients. Now, we market the clients more than the company itself. Is this the corporate way to do it? Nope, but it is the right way to do business. We have a choice as a service provider to either remember who we work with or to pay attention to that “bottom line”. Being in customer service (yes, that is what we are) we must always remember who’s important, YOU

Today’s blog is supposed to be about marketing, and well some of this post was about it… But more importantly, it is about YOU. We want you to know that no matter what service we offer, no matter if we do it ourselves or find someone who can, we want YOU to know that we value your trust and are honored you chose us to help.

 

We will get back to Marketing next week for the final Personalized Marketing Inc 10th Anniversary Blog Post. 

There are only a few days to enter the drawing…
