It happens all the time: an e-newsletter with content tailored specifically towards a target group mysteriously turns out to be a flop for unknown reasons. The root cause analysis begins, covering analyses of the open rate [OR], click-through rate [CTR] and click-to-open rate [CTOR]. And then it dawns on the person in charge: “If only I had carried out a…

Those who work routinely with programs like Photoshop will appreciate its eyedropper tool, which comes in the shape of a pipette. You can use it to record a desired colour very easily and show its values in all colour models with a simple double click. However, it eases your workflow and saves time if you don’t get out your massive…

Here’s an idea!
10.03.17 | 0 Comments | Author: Rolf Preuß
I guess we’ve all been through this: you want to liven up a presentation with some nice-to-look-at photos. But most images in commercial databases are much too expensive for your intended purpose or you are unsure about the licensing terms. Getting your smartphone out and quickly taking a photo yourself is usually no option either. This is where royalty-free photos…

26.09.16 | 0 Comments | Author: Stefan Knecht
In B2B markets, the most widespread way to generate sales leads is through contact forms on web pages. Although producing such leads is one of the main objectives of marketing managers, few seem aware of how many prospective buyers are put off by poorly devised or wrongly implemented contact forms – they will not contact the company at all. So…

Optimise your call to action to gain extra sales leads
8.09.16 | 0 Comments | Author: Marcus Bierbaum
Call to action elements are as indispensable in marketing as the advertisements themselves. The universally known marketing principle AIDA (attention, interest, desire, action) can help to explain how they work.

4.04.16 | 0 Comments | Author: Rolf Preuß
In part 1, I showed you how to make advertising campaigns more successful by using dedicated landing pages. But the subject won’t let me go. Often I get the impression that decision makers are not particularly interested in the success of their B2B campaigns. Why do I believe so? Every day I spot ineffective B2B advertisements, many of which were…
