What We Learned

Monday: Digital marketer gave us four elements that will help improve page conversion performance

  • Your offer should be made up of these four critical points: clarity, scent, relevance, and visualization.
  • The ask or what-to-do-next step.
  • People buy from brands they can trust.
  • Consider implementing a visual hierarchy.

Wednesday: Hubspot outlined how to set & achieve marketing objectives in 2020. First, you need the Why, the How, and the What. Then use the SMART framework to add realistic, quantifiable, and focused targets and level up on your goal setting.

Thursday: Content Marketing Institute gave some pointers about building a personal brand after a job loss. Launching a blog, taking to social media, and starting a marketing meetup are just three of the strategies they focused on.
