What can you glean from your website data? We live in a time of content topic/SEO tools galore — but what does your own website search data tell you that competitors CAN’T see? Think about how you might you use your “thank you” and confirmation pages as opportunities to continue a relationship rather than end it. The best marketing answers customers questions and connects with them as humans. Technology and data is a utility; but it will never replace the human relationships only marketers can forge.

Bringing the human element back into marketing

There’s so many tools, software, and systems out there that are able to help you find content opportunities, keywords, or test and use the best copy. There’s two main goals for your website: drive traffic, and convert visitors. Whether in content, copywriting, direct response, or analytics, find the human element to do that — and remember that behind every computer screen or piece of data, there’s a person.

“The problem w/ an overreliance on #data is it’s all historic, doesn’t tell you what off-the-wall, brand new idea might work, or account for inspiration,” says @crestodina      CLICK TO TWEET

The future of marketing is going to be more human. We will see a continued growth in popularity of influencer marketing. But organic influencer relationships will start to happen more and more in-person, like at events. Friendship is the future.

Key Takeaways:

Use qualitative data from your website search bar and chat log to glean insights, pick topics, and create content

Use thank you or confirmation pages to continue the customer journey

The unexpected moments of inspiration and risk-taking experiences will always be made by you and not the machine/data — continue being human!
