3 reasons to use Bing Ads for multichannel marketing

What do you think of when you hear search engine advertising? In all likelihood, the answer will be "AdWords," because Google not only dominates the international market for search engine advertising (SEA), but also holds a market share of 90 percent in Germany. Nevertheless, companies can reach almost one in ten users in Germany with Bing Ads, and especially in the B2B sector - because many large and medium-sized companies use Microsoft products.

Why you should not confuse content and inbound marketing

Content-Marketing vs. Inbound-Marketing

The Internet offers people new approaches in their search for solutions and content: Without being able to narrow down their question or specifically name their desire, they come into contact with content. This is where content marketing comes in: The desired target group is addressed with the help of user-relevant content and thus convinced of a product, a company or a service. Inbound marketing has a similar approach, using various tools and optimizing strategies to accompany visitors along their customer journey. In recent years, both approaches have become effective alternatives to traditional advertising - but how does content marketing differ from inbound marketing?

Hubspot Summit 2017

Customers buy differently than they did ten years ago! This fact presents e-commerce companies with new challenges: How to reach potential customers in the fragmented web? Which marketing strategies are effective to generate new leads? And how do you create positive user experiences to increase sales?

With helpful content and customer-centric marketing and sales tools, the customer is put in the center of attention, ensuring a better user experience and more sales. On May 16 and 17, 2017, as pioneers of inbound marketing in the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa), representatives of HubSpot partner agencies met to exchange ideas in Dublin.

Artificial intelligence for more sales? News from the Google Agency Meeting

Blackbit Online Marketers as guests at the Google Agency Service

The days of rigid metrics and regional search results in Google search are over. Search results are now tailored to existing search behavior and user profiles - delivering better results and a more satisfying user experience. This is because search engines learn with the help of artificial learning and dynamically influence which results are displayed. A supposedly simple Google search is determined by auto-completion in the search box, bid control in AdWords and intelligent prediction of purchase completion probabilities. Blackbit online marketers André Reß and Achim Stassen exchanged views on how exactly artificial intelligence can be used to optimize search results and thus increase sales in online commerce at the Google Agency Service meeting on March 30.

Identity-based brand management: From the core to a successful brand

Web design in the sense of brand management

Brand: More than just a logo A brand is not just the logo or the name of a company. It is the sum of all the individual parts: both self-image and external image. To retain customers in the long term, you have to differentiate yourself from the competition. The appearance as an outer shell serves recognition. But brands today are so much more than just the home for products and services, because with the purchase the customer receives a value promise as an extra on top. That's why brands not only provide information, but also give orientation in times of oversupply and disorientation. Many people lack a sense of direction: Who do I want to be? What do I want to represent? From whom do I want to differentiate myself? Since brands are managed more emotionally today, it is possible for them to fill this gap. There are two ways to differentiate a brand from the competition:
