Why print ads can make a difference in your marketing mix

In today’s rapidly changing and increasingly digital world, the confidence in printed advertisements seems to be declining at a rapid pace. The downward trend in global spending on print advertising says it all; between 2000 and 2014, the annual spend fell massively from US$67 billion to US$19.9 billion. We’re seeing a reflection of this trend at Geomares too, with print’s revenue share dropping from 88% in 2013 to 60% in 2017. Does this mean that the end of print advertising is near? Or does it actually offer opportunities to set yourself apart by advertising in print?

How to create effective digital ads for your B2B campaigns

Did you know that 55% of all page views hold the reader’s attention for less than 15 seconds? Over the years, internet users have become increasingly better at scanning web pages and it now takes them just a few seconds to decide whether or not they find the displayed content interesting enough to read on. In fact, the average attention span of internet users has dropped to 8 seconds, compared to 12 seconds in 2000. And yes, this trend is also impacting on banners. By their very nature they get the least attention from users, so it is becoming increasingly important to create very high-quality banners to achieve maximum engagement with your target audience.

9 tips for a terrific trade show

Traditionally, trade shows play an important role in geospatial B2B marketing. In fact, there is probably no better way to get in touch with your customers and prospects. Yet, a lot of possibilities at trade shows are still often left unused. We regularly visit trade fairs ourselves and still see too many exhibitors who make little or no contact at all. Often they focus on the wrong things, like their smartphone or colleagues, which is a real pity. For that reason we’ve put together a list of tips, so that you can get the most out of your next trade fair participation!
