Your audience expects an increasingly personalized experience online. By tracking how customers engage with your brand across multiple channels, using a marketing automation or a personalization tool, you can serve your audience with personalized ads on multiple channels: such as additional websites visited and social. As described by Marketo, this activity is called retargeting.
By tracking past interests, purchases, level of buying intent, and overall engagement, even anonymous prospects who have visited your website can be retargeted based on their location, industry, company size, targeted list, or behaviors.
The result is better performing ads, stronger ROI from your advertising spend, and the ability to nurture customers with a consistent, crosschannel experience.
Retargeting works only when businesses are able to successfully track who visits their sites and how they got there. With the platforms that Chispa uses, we integrate a greater amount of data into retargeting efforts for both anonymous and known site visitors. For anonymous visitors, those that the company has no contact information or concrete names, we can send messages based on IP address location, industry, product interest, buying intent, and much more. For known visitors, previous levels of engagement, current buyer stage in the customer life cycle, and specific needs based on company profiles are incorporated into targeted ads.
One of the great benefits of Social Media Marketing for business is its ability to help you build a community of followers that are invested in your company. Social platforms can connect with and build a list of people who are likely to be repeat customers and will be able to provide great referrals. Directly interacting with your followers will build a positive image, tackle potential problems immediately, and keep your business at the top of people’s minds.

The opportunities are endless. If you’re selling a planned hotel resort, wouldn’t you want to show clients around without having to vet every enquiry before sending them out. If you’re building an apartment block, wouldn’t it be great to ditch the floor plans and have investors walk through the rooms. VR can do this.
VR allows you to provide potential buyers with the experience they need to fully understand your product. Blueprints, images, video – they all play their part. But put them together in an interactive, realistic experience and you’ve got the most powerful marketing tool ever made.

According to Wyzowl statistics, 61% of businesses have started using video content marketing. 66% of these companies were not using video a year ago. This trend has progressed rapidly and will reach new heights sooner than we think.
Video is one of the most versatile and profitable digital marketing tools out there. It is also changing the social network, how people consume content there and the way advertisers think about reaching them.
Video ads generate far more emotional cues than a photo can, with the ability to tell an extensive story and appeal to a wider range of senses. Videos trigger the central route for some people and the peripheral route for others, two avenues that eventually converge with a common goal: to sell a product or service by selling an underlying idea. It's ideas that evoke specific emotional responses: joy, pride, sadness, anger, laughter, nostalgia, etc. These emotions fuel passion, and drives human behavior while building a brand relationship with an audience.
Because video is both stimulating and entertaining, it offers an experience to the viewer not found in plain text. Fluid, modern, and interesting, video satisfies our need to absorb information quickly and seamlessly. In fact, video has been proven to increase viewer comprehension and boost the likelihood of a sale. So give them what they want; after all, a happy customer is a repeat customer.
People prefer watching video to reading text. In fact, according to an Animoto survey of 1,000 people, four times as many respondents preferred learning about a product through video. Today’s culture of instant gratification only fuels the shortened attention span of the average consumer, so naturally they prefer a visually appealing medium that captivates the senses.
As published by AdAge, Facebook ad sales topped $9 billion last quarter, proof that its heavy investment in video is paying off. The company is holding steady at about 2 billion monthly users, the company also said as it released its latest quarterly results on Wednesday. Its nearly $9.2 billion in ad revenue represented a 47% gain over the period a year earlier. For Facebook, it was a more lucrative quarter than even investors expected.
At the Sundance Film Festival in Park City in Utah, YouTube talked about value of short-form storytelling in a mobile world. YouTube showcased its six-second ad format as a new video marketing means. Facebook is also coming out with a 6 second format too.
Don't sit on the sidelines. Let Chispa guide you in using video to market your message to the world.
Marketers are looking at buyer behavior data and putting machine learning and artificial intelligence tools to work, to predict, based on past actions, what a prospect is likely to do next.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) refers to machines with capabilities that mimic cognitive functions associated with the human mind—most notably learning and problem solving. It plays a significant role in the field of content marketing, helping to streamline processes at a time of immense content overload.
AI lets you track and gather crucial data about individual users. It can slowly begin to understand their behavior, their interests and preferences. This allows you to recommend and suggest items or content that is relevant to each user. An example of this is with YouTube, as it recommends you music similar to your taste. Amazon, too, has become so good at using AI that a third of its business comes from the machine learning-powered function as recommended purchases.
"Everything that civilisation has to offer is a product of human intelligence; we cannot predict what we might achieve when this intelligence is magnified by the tools that Artificial Intelligence may provide."
Advertising is a crucial part of any business. AI can help in this regard by ‘learning’ the user behavior with all ads. It can help you define your demographics with better targeting. Hopefully, in the near future, machines will be intelligent enough that we won’t even need to tweak the targeting ourselves. They will do the targeting, experimenting, analyzing and retargeting all by itself.
AI applications on marketing will evaluate the right ad targeting. It will ‘teach’ itself to recognize patterns and then apply these patterns to solve various complex queries. They will be able to build better algorithms to determine better detection of trends in user behavior.
