Why Your Banner Ad Campaign Is Falling Flat

Posted by Prime Incorporated on Feb 1, 2019 8:01:00 AM

Ok, it’s time to point out an ugly truth that affects a ton of marketing. We don’t like being the ones to do it, but we care about you too much to just sit back and let you waste all your hard work. Hey, it’s no one’s fault, and we’ve all done it at one point or another, usually early on in our business infancy. It’s the tendency to slap something together, throw it up on the internet, clap yourself on the back and leave it there for God knows how long. It hurts us to watch because it usually leads to a bad disappointment for good people who just don’t know better. Maybe it’s a website you haven’t updated in ages, and are slowly killing your SEO in the process. Maybe it’s your blog you haven’t posted to in 6 months. Or, maybe it’s your banner ads, put together without rhyme or reason. The latter is our focus for today, or more specifically, why your banner ad is falling flat.

Making the Sales Funnel Work for You

Posted by Prime Incorporated on Jan 4, 2019 8:30:00 AM

Terms like “The Sales Funnel” always sound more vague and complicated than they truly are. While it may sound like something only a well-seasoned marketer would know what to do with, it’s really just industry speak for the sales process. The term “sales funnel” is helpful because the visual is accurate to how you cast your net when it comes to converting leads to paying customers.

Posted by Prime Incorporated on Dec 21, 2018 8:16:00 AM

We’ve dabbled in goal-creating a little bit in the past, but never have we sallied forth into the sacred territory of how to write SMART goals. SMART goals are what separate the men from the amoebas, the idle dreamers from the all-out hustlers. But to set SMART goals, one must actually understand what they are, which is exactly what we’re covering in today’s post.

Posted by Prime Incorporated on Dec 3, 2018 8:11:00 AM

Ah, the blog. The very room in which we’re currently chatting. Having a blog is one of the best things you can do for your business for a smattering of reasons. We’ve already discussed at length how your blog can boost your SEO, so today we’re talking about the less technical side of things: your voice--how to find it, and how to use it to be a better blogger.

3 Simple Things You Can Do To Improve Your Website's SEO

Posted by Prime Incorporated on Nov 23, 2018 8:11:00 AM

We know. SEO is one of those terms that, if it’s not your line of work, can sound crazy intimidating up front. The earliest mention that can be found of SEO traces roughly back to 1997. This was the same year that Titanic smashed the box office, Hanson released their debut album, and Biggie Smalls was shot. The point? It’s been around a long time (it’s technically old enough to have a drink), and there’s no reason for any person with half a brain to still shy away from the very basics of SEO. Once you look under the bed, this monster is really no monster at all. You can tackle it with ease, we promise. Let’s take a look at three simple ways to do just that.
