I can affirm without doubt that executing the right digital marketing strategies is one of the most effective ways for adding value to any company, brand, product or service for consumers.
If we understand value in this case to be the qualities that are attributed to the object by an individual or a social group, modifying, based on that attribution, their behavior and attitudes towards the object in question, then we have that marketing is that factor that achieves to give additional meaning to that object based on an audience that feels attracted, understood in their needs and aspirations, and that also finds satisfaction in belonging to and sharing that experience.
Digital marketing is based on market research, 2.0 communication and advertising and sales techniques to identify the consumer’s tastes and preferences and thereby create a tailored plan that includes the qualities that are of value to that object and that must substantially differentiate it from the competition.
In this digital strategy, content marketing plays a fundamental role in connecting with our audience. Since in addition to highlighting its qualities, it must also offer useful, timely, current and entertaining content associated with what we offer.
Nowadays, consumers demand more and more, which is why they welcome brands committed to social causes and with values related to their vision of the world.
Let’s not lose sight of the fact that value is the relationship that exists between what the customer gives to obtain and maintain a product and what they receive from it. And consumers are willing to pay more for that plus with which they identify and makes them feel closer to their aspirations.
