Every website is like a unique snowflake. But, no matter how different each one is, every website on the World Wide Web will always have the following two things: a domain and a host. But do you know where your website’s domain is registered? Where it’s hosted? What about your CMS login information? One of the most essential but often overlooked parts of maintaining a successful website is knowing its ins and outs, and having well-kept website documentation will help you accomplish this.
As a manufacturer, redesigning your website is about more than just your product. While those items are of significant importance, it is easy to slip into the role of the person building the product, rather than the person buying the product. That's why so often you see specifications taking the place of good sales copy. But beyond that, in a website situation, you have to think about not only the person buying the product, but how they go about finding that product in the first place.
Whether you're new to the position and this is your first big marketing project or you’ve endured this exercise several times now, the prospect of a website redesign for a manufacturing company can send shivers down the spine of even the most experienced marketing professional. You know that everyone from the sales department to human resources to engineering is going to have a say in how the website looks, the content it has on it and the way it functions. And that doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone is going to get along or play nice.
Social media, when looked at through the lens of integrated marketing communications, can drive a business’s entire marketing strategy forward.
While reading a social media post may only take a few seconds, writing and planning an effective post takes much more time and thought. A social media calendar is a valuable tool to plan, track, and implement content for any and all social media avenues.
A calendar is more helpful than a list of topics because it allows an organization to visualize how its content will be distributed throughout the year. Key company or industry events, holidays, product release dates, and the like can be duly noted.

Facebook continues to be one of the most popular social media sites, and an increasing number of varied demographics are spending an increasing amount of time on the site. As such, Facebook offers certain tools to businesses to maximize exposure on social media. One of those tools is boosting posts, an easy and effective way to gain more exposure of the content. A boosted post is similar to a normal post from a business Facebook page. For a fee, the post is “boosted” higher up in the audience’s news feeds, guaranteeing a certain level of visibility that might not happen with the organic reach of a regular post.
With an ever-increasing number of media outlets, it can become increasingly difficult to navigate the advertising waters. Television, radio, print, web, social media – how do you find the best within each of these categories? How do you incorporate a mix of mediums into a strategic marketing plan?
