Marketing Study Lab - Actionable Marketing Knowledge


Hello, I’m the Lego Master of Marketing! 

Odd statement to start a profile, but go with it, it’ll make sense.

You know when you have loads of Lego all over the floor and it just looks like one big pile of nothingness. Not only does it look a mess, it’s a pain when you stand on it.

I take these bricks and start to make sense of how they all fit together.

If your marketing feels like a pile of painful Lego, let’s chat and get those building blocks fitting together: peter@marketingstudylab.co.uk

Why is this an issue?

The biggest problem facing todays marketing departments is the severe lack of qualified marketers, which usually happens by accident.

It’s not your fault, this usually happens by accident.

Perhaps there was an immediate need to design a website or create some literature and you needed someone to coordinate this – before you know it, Mark is the new marketing department.

Maybe your business has experienced some rapid growth, expanded and was looking to promote within or Andrea from customer service fancied her hand a marketing and is now in charge of all corporate comms.

Or perhaps your competition is way too active on social media and you feel you need to be present on this platform as well. Get Hayley to post ‘stuff’ – she’s young enough to understand how to do this. 

You get the idea!

These circumstances lead to 100s of hours of wasted time and money by focusing on the short-term tactics rather than a long-term strategic approach that will make a difference.

Even worse than this, the misplaced management of employees creates missed business opportunities, leaving money on the table that many didn't even know was there!

Hello, I’m Peter!
I can help with this.

I’ve been there, seen Marketing Departments churning out worthless tactical marketing communications that do nothing but damage a company’s reputation, wasting peoples time and reducing, not building long-term brand value.

I specialise in training programmes that will alter the mind-set of lost / forgotten / unqualified marketer by developing the skills needed to confidently create successful, long-term marketing strategies that generates business opportunities.

How is this done? Tell me, tell me now!

Quite simply by removing the pain points and problems than many marketers face as they haven’t had the training or been given the opportunity develop their marketing skills through;

Strategic Marketing Planning
Professional Marketing Qualifications
Marketing Training Days
Mentoring
Tutoring

Any business that is not benefiting from the opportunities marketing will create is missing out MASSIVELY! The chances are that the marketing tactics that are being deployed focus on pushing the wrong messages of ‘Buy. This. Now’ to the wrong people (who don’t even care you exist), creating minimal awareness and even less success.

Positioning a company through a strategic marketing approach, does not only carve out a point of difference for a company to differentiate themselves from the competition, but creates a unique proposition within the marketplace that highlights the problems it helps to fix for those that care enough to seek out this solution. Moving a company from a wasteful and unwanted push strategy to one that creates value where customers will actively gravitate towards this value proposition.

This change your marketing and the marketing department from being viewed as a cost centre that haemorrhages money, to the department that creates value and saves money in the long-term.

And here’s a little bit of social proof for you:

‘It is refreshing to see someone with a passion for the profession producing such valuable content for others to learn from.’

‘He was genuine and very honest in his approach and it was a pleasure working through this with Peter. An ‘out of the box’ thinker, he enabled me to consider different approaches.

Happy Marketing,
Peter

Intro
Video SEO is one of those Marketing techniques that can very easily be missed off the agenda in a ‘post it and see what happens’ culture. But it is this type of thinking that will limit your exposure and overall success within Video Marketing.
 
Casper Pederson is a Video Marketing Strategist for TwentyThree, a company that helps you run video and generate inbound, social and demand generation successfully. And this all comes about from analysing the data and not just creating video content, but also focusing on the bits you don’t see to maximise each videos potential, including the use of SEO to do just that.
 
In this episode we cover;
• How to squeeze as much from each video as possible 
• What elements other than quality video content should we be focusing on?
• Why you shouldn't use YouTube embeds
• How to protect your websites SEO and attract more visitors
• The time you have on each platform to keep someone’s attention

Takeaways
- Video should never be just a ‘click and share’ piece of content and a distribution plan will help you get as much exposure in front of the right people as possible. Remembering to focus on the media that you control as well. More control means you have more undivided attention.
 
- Think about video creation like you would a blog. This can be used in multiple ways right through the sales funnel – Snackable content at the top, detailed, long-form content at the bottom. 
 
- And finally, the SEO part. Remember to focus on these four key elements;
