Fishman, CPA, CFE, FCPA, CAMS wrote, “The action taken by the U.S. Department of the Treasury with respect to the preparation and filing of 2019 income tax returns, along with any payments that would be due with those returns in many cases, does not reflect the difficulties that have been imposed on both tax practitioners and their clients by the current crisis.”

Markitects Featured in Forbes’ “Ways A Business Can Use Video To Engage Its Audience”

Forbes features Markitects’ Founder & CEO, Francine F. Carb, in their article, “13 Unique Ways A Business Can Use Video To Engage Its Audience”.

Ever since innovations on the web made the embedded video a viable strategy, marketers have realized how vital this visual medium is to get consumers’ attention. As companies started to utilize this new technology, and it became more democratized, the popularity of video as a communication medium exploded.

However, there are several techniques that a business can utilize when their chosen medium is video. To make an impact, a company must stand out with their content.

Markitects has been creating more and more videos on behalf of our clients. These range from ‘explainer videos’ to quick promotional videos and Markitects’ secret recipe includes a lot of animation.

Francine Carb, Founder and CEO of Markitects says, “It seems counterintuitive, but using animation as a video can often communicate a message better than a talking head. The reasons are: the ability to create the scene to suit the message, the flexibility to add captions and transition slides, and the creative freedom to make a point directly, rather than subtly. Animation also enables you to feature brand attributes to support your message.” says Francine Carb, Founder & CEO of Markitects, Inc.

Markitects Featured in Forbes’ “Making The Most Of This Year’s Advertising Budgets”

Forbes features Markitects’ Founder & CEO, Francine F. Carb, in their article, “Making The Most Of This Year’s Advertising Budgets: 15 Expert Tips”.

Over the last decade, the number of channels for marketing products has more than doubled. As expected, the amount of spending has matched the increased number of channels, with businesses in any industry striving to make the most of their advertising budgets so as to take advantage of as many marketing channels as possible.

With so many options available, it’s essential that organizations only invest in channels that actually prove their worth. Figuring out what those channels are early and getting in on the ground floor can put a company miles ahead in the game.

Markitects predicts that this year’s B2B trend will be to utilize and leverage various aspects of LinkedIn in a single campaign. Sponsored ads (paid advertising) will lead to LinkedIn profiles and organic posts, which will lead to landing pages and calls to action. The concept is to begin by targeting a specific audience with something attention-getting, then transition to a thought leadership article or educational information, and eventually to a company’s website. 

LinkedIn has already become an important part of almost all of our clients’ campaigns this year and we believe it will only expand. If you are looking for help with your social media and associated advertising, please contact us.
