Moss Networks CEO and Founder, Bonnie Moss, explains how developing a marketing strategy to those who are already your brand loyalists can benefit your business in the long term in the article “10 Tips to Help Make Existing Customers Love Your Brand Even More” published in PR News. While many companies spend a lot of their marketing efforts on reaching new audiences, it is also vital to that they don’t turn a blind eye on current customers.
In fact, Moss argues that brands earn considerable savings and revenue by focusing on the demographic that they have already won over a first time. Bonnie describes how personalized emails, rewards and special events can serve as ways to reconnect with this profitable audience. “To keep your clients returning for more it’s critical to enhance the relationship with them so they feel valued.”

It’s a noisy world. Despite best efforts to speak directly to an audience with content and campaigns designed to capture their attention, too frequently those campaigns will fall on deaf ears.
If you feel like you’ve experienced this kind of challenge, there is a solution – one that’s been around for much longer than the terms “content / engagement marketing” have existed, but not a lot of companies have given it the time and energy it requires. The solution is simple – Become part of the conversation. Then you’re no longer talking at your audience, but talking with them. Becoming a thought leader is the most efficient way to achieve the kind of loyalty and brand value that helps you stand out from the crowd.
Establishing you and your team as thought leaders is extremely valuable. There are challenges to measuring your thought leadership efforts, but looking at the right metrics prove what is common sense – when someone provides valuable information, they become a trusted advisor. And when the time comes, those advisors are the ones business leaders will turn to.
You may not have named it “thought leadership”, but you’ve likely participated in efforts to establish both your credibility…

Most businesses need to redo their website at some point to refine their message, reach a new audience, or make the site easier to use. Developing and launching a new site has a lot in common with remodeling your physical business. In both cases, your goal is to create the best possible space for doing business. That requires careful planning and ongoing communication with the agency handling your site redesign. Here are eight best practices we recommend, based on our experiences helping clients make the most of their websites.
- Set your goals before you begin and refer to them as you go. Your agency will base the redesign on these goals, so spend as much time as you need goal-setting with your company’s decisionmakers and your agency before you move ahead. When questions arise during the design process, use the goals to guide your answers.
- Focus on what your audience wants. In most cases, this means refocusing your site content on customer benefits, with technical features taking a supporting role. Businesses sometimes struggle with this step, especially those that offer technical or complex services and products. Remember, potential customers visit your site to learn what your business can do for them….
Your personal brand is an important part of your business image, especially if you lead or own a company. That’s because the digital transformation and social media make having a personal brand unavoidable, whether you manage it carefully or not. It’s also because today’s buyers, especially in the B2B space, want the brands they do business with to be run by experts who can help them solve problems, find new approaches, and move forward. If you’re not sure how to start building your personal brand, or if yours needs an overhaul, here are some concepts to work with.
Personal thought leadership can reach your business customers
Positioning yourself as an expert or innovator in your niche is the goal of every thought leadership program, but there are different ways to accomplish the goal. The key is to reach your audience in more than one channel and to offer a steady stream of fresh, relevant information to help them with their decision-making.
Effective avenues for thought leadership include:
- Sharing original content on your personal or company blog
- Personal social media activity that includes contributing thoughtful information, participating in productive discussions with industry peers, and sharing others’ ideas when they add value to the conversation
- Networking with…
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but visual content can be much more valuable. As more people get most of their information from screens, content tools such as photos, illustrations, infographics, and video are the keys to engaging your audience. Research from many sources shows that including visuals can get more audience members to read, share, and use your content. In this post, we’ll look at three of visual content marketing’s biggest benefits.
Science says our eyes and minds tend to wander when confronted with a page of text – one often-cited statistic says that site visitors read about 20 percent of the words on a given page. That means that if you want to get your message through, you need visual information to combat text fatigue and keep your readers’ eyes on your pages and posts.
Visa Europe’s library of infographics takes complex topics like cross-border payment tokenization, multi-lateral interchange fees, and contactless payment adoption and distills them into easy-to-scan packages of visual information. Each infographic uses the traditional Visa blue and gold color palette for heightened brand visibility.
