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.
