New Marketing Trends Report

Let’s face it — the economy today is BRUTAL. The recession is changing the business landscape, driving many companies out of business. Competition has never been this intense. And everyone is reluctant to spend money.

If you are an entrepreneur, are exploring the possibility of starting your own business or simply are looking for a marketing job, you need an edge.

To that end, StartupNation and Website Marketing NOW have announced the publication of their new Marketing Trends Report: Recession, Bankruptcies, and the Explosion of Social Media.

Highlights:

§  The down economy has brought with it a great deal of discounting and price-centric marketing. This leads to commoditization of your products and services. Buck the trend and stand out among your peers. Focus on your differentiators and all the value-add you deliver.

§  There were 156 major bankruptcy filings in the first half of 2009, and this number is expected to be larger in the second half of the year. Monitor your competition using online tools such as Google Alerts, and capitalize on targeted advertising opportunities when competitors go under. When it’s a large competitor that falls to bankruptcy, remind their customers how much more flexible and personalized your services are.

§  People don’t want to be “sold to” anymore. Learn how leveraging the principles of “Authenticity” can help you grow your business.

§  Twitter usage grew by more than 1,000% over the past year. Are you there, effectively engaging with your audience?

§  Bing is Microsoft’s new search engine. Are you prepared to capitalize on the opportunities that Bing will introduce?

See what you need to do next in order to grow your business!
