email marketing

Is there a future for email marketing?

With GDPR coming into force on May 25th you may be thinking that this will be the end of email marketing as we know it. But we believe this will be a massive opportunity for higher open rates, click through rates and even overall conversion rates.

As a result of GDPR a number of companies have refined their processes to ensure that they collect opt-in before sending any email communications. This means that moving forward businesses will be sending email marketing campaigns to people that have a genuine interest in the company.

It’s Just Like Bacon and Eggs: Getting the Right Mix with Integrated Marketing

If you’ve attended a marketing focused meeting in the past few years, chances are you would have heard the word “integrated” used on a number of occasions, whether its, “how do we make this integrated” or “it needs to be integrated”. However this isn’t the boardroom waffle it may sound like - integration is the key to marketing success!

Some things just work better together. Batman and Robin. Simon and Garfunkel. Bacon and Eggs. Liked alone, but loved together; the result is better than the sum of the parts. And that’s the secret to integrated marketing.

Profit from customer care

Social media has made it quick and easy to keep in touch with clients (notice we are publishing this on a Friday…. follow Friday for @MAXXDesign anyone?) but do we keep in mind WHY it so important to keep in contact and provide great service to current clients? It can cost as much as 6 times more to attract a new client than to get business out of our existing ones. But often we judge success on how many new accounts we secure rather than realising the true potential of the clients we already have.  

500 rubik's cubes, 85 million dollars, 1 conclusion - branding investment pays!

In one of our meeting rooms at MAXX we have a poster, a poster featuring a superhero who says “If only my brand was as strong as me!!”. This type of poster makes an impact and the words have meaning for many of our clients.  Words that MAXX put into practice for clients time and time again. One of those clients is Arieso, a  Berkshire-based client that develops intelligent, location-aware solutions for mobile operators. Since 2008 MAXX have enjoyed an ongoing working relationship with the company.

It's not impossible to be the face that inspires a nation

So it’s February: the month of love, the graveyard of broken new years resolutions and the start to a year that some are already tired of. What is needed to perk you and your work ethic up – is inspiration. The type of inspiration that comes from watching a great movie or reading a book that makes you want to ‘get up and get going’!  It’s this kind of inspiration that needs to be transferred to your job, it not only makes your job more fulfilling and exciting, but it makes you more successful.
