creative-vs-analytical- Write Side Up

In an ever-changing complex retail market, digital marketing has emerged as an important tool that connects the purchaser and the producer. The use of digital marketing not only allows a brand to successfully market itself, but also allows the entrepreneurs and small-scale producers to establish themselves. The main goal of digital marketing is to ensure that a product is as appealing and attractive to a consumer as can be while warranting that the producer’s investment reaps fruitful results.
A digital marketing plan is bound to fail if it lacks proper planning and analytical research as well as a creative edge. It can never be either one or the other. A successful digital marketing plan should be thoroughly investigated and data driven in order to analyse the competitive market to understand consumer demands, explicit interests and deliver pertinent dialogue to specific consumer sectors. At the same time, a digital marketer must have an artistic flare, in order to make the content striking, unorthodox and appealing to the consumer. Therefore, any successful digital marketing plan has to be creatively analytical, a whole-brainer.

Marketers often require analytical skills in order to recognize digital marketing campaigns used by their competitors and help assess their own gamut, capitals, budget and risks. These skills are also necessary in order to recognize any website problems that may hinder a satisfying customer experience and reduce overall revenue, not to mention adversely affect SEO results. Digital marketers must be fluent in the technical aspects of primary marketing or the so-called “lingo”. For any successful digital marketing plan, a well thought-out and systematic POA (Plan of Action) is a prerequisite.

There is no doubt that analytical research and technological solutions are imperative for what is generally termed as “hard marketing” by specialists. However, it is incorrect to suggest that the data-centric marketing solutions have made creativity any less important. It can, in fact, be argued that having an imaginative superiority over your competitor’s is more vital than ever in the digital marketing world.

Marketing Automation tools assist the marketer in executing a new business process known as Lead Nurturing. And the most important factor in implementing an operative Lead Nurturing program is the content that is used by the producer. Any marketer, who wishes to retain customers as well as attract new prospective buyers at every turn, must deliver a torrent of convincing, resounding and brand-augmenting content. An effective marketing plan always needs fresh and innovative subject matter that is relevant with the trends. The most common reasons for the failure of a marketing plan is the company’s inability to dole out enough, state-of-the-art content matter to build a long-lasting relationship with prospective buyers.

Marketing is now-a-days considered an art and not many have the creative as well as analytical talent to match it. Marketing is not just about building a marketplace anticipation by putting out big ideas but also about conveying your brand and creating cognizance about your exclusive value proposal. Therefore, if your content doesn’t resonate with prospective customers, they will lose interest in your brand and instead shift to your competitors that had a more compelling and relevant connection with them.

However, only pretty words will attract buyers solely in the first phase of marketing. Simply a creative content with no actual business plan backing it up will only lead to a loss in revenue. Hence, we say, one cannot survive without the other.
