For an online marketing strategy to be successful, it needs to be relevant. This relevance does not only relate to messaging and choosing the right digital platforms, it also refers to time.
Consumers of today are often impulse buyers. If they see something they want, they want to be able to buy it now. Real-time relevance will help your clients engage with customers and boost their bottom lines in big ways if you can get this right.
All too often, internet marketers create content marketing plans far in advance. It’s easy to see why this happens: it makes your schedule easier and it ensures that you know what types of digital activities are happening and when. Real-time relevance, however, need to be flexible and immediate. This means that you need to keep your finger on the industry’s pulse and adapt your strategy when opportunity arises.
