Digital Marketing, a Powerful Tool for Online Marketing

Digital Marketing, a Powerful Tool for Online Marketing

The Internet has become an essential communication channel in the design of marketing strategies, both for B2B companies (trade between companies) and B2C (trade with consumers). However, some heads of SMEs hesitate to use digital marketing tools, sometimes for lack of time, but especially for lack of knowledge.

Let’s demystify internet marketing.

WHAT IS DIGITAL MARKETING?

Digital marketing is all the activities carried out by businesses on the Internet. This includes websites, blogs, social media, online advertising, and newsletters. Given the speed at which the Internet is evolving, a definition of digital marketing must be broad and inclusive.

WHY DIGITAL MARKETING?

Digital marketing: being present for its customers

One of the principles of modern marketing is to be present where customers are most likely to consume and to provide them with content that meets their expectations. However, according to recent data, we note that:

  • 70% of adult Quebec consumers research the Internet before purchasing a product or service;
  • 50% of adult consumers buy products online. The Quebec market was estimated at $ 6.6 billion in 2014;
  • 23% of online purchases were made through a search in a search engine;
  • 5% of online purchases come directly from social media.

Thus, Quebec consumers are connected to the Internet, have already integrated into their online shopping habits, and now, their information search process involves research and comparison of products online. On the Internet, in social media, in particular, consumers reproduce the phenomenon of word of mouth, but on a larger scale. It has, therefore, become essential for companies selling to individuals to be present online in order to be found.

The logic is the same for companies selling to other companies. According to a Statistics Canada survey, we learn that in 2013, 47% of Canadian businesses bought products or services online. The market value is considerable: $ 136 billion!

In addition, these companies have a purchasing behavior similar to that of consumers: they carry out online research, inform themselves and make decisions based on the information obtained. In this case, too, your business must visible on the Internet.

To be visible, you must first know what consumers want. This is the stage of strategic thinking.

STRATEGIC THINKING

Before embarking on the acquisition of digital marketing tools, it is essential to take a moment to reflect and a game plan:

  • who are your clients?
  • Their needs?
  • Their purchasing behaviors, especially on the internet?
  • What are your competitive or competitive advantages?
  • What are your goals?

This reflection will allow you to identify with better precision the tools to use to effectively reach your customers and, above all, to engage with them a constructive conversation which will ultimately allow you to generate sales.

Once you have identified the most effective communication needs and channels to reach your customers, you need to determine the content that will generate the most engagement from them.

CONTENT, KEY TO DIGITAL MARKETING

Creating relevant content is one of the keys to digital marketing. Consumers who search the Internet are looking for information to answer a problem, not advertisements. It is therefore essential that the content that your business creates meets at least one customer need.

The idea behind creating content is simple: it’s about establishing your credibility in your area of ​​expertise. In other words, it’s about creating your trademarkThus, consumers who do not know you can discover you, start a relationship of trust with your brand, and ultimately, this relationship may lead to a sale.

With clients, the content you create will consolidate your positioning, thus facilitating their loyalty.

SOME DIGITAL MARKETING TOOLS

Blog or website?

A blog is a website in itself. The difference with the site lies in its dynamism: while the website is not very interactive, the blog is designed for your business to publish content on it, be it articles, videos or infographics. This is the focal point of your digital marketing strategy

Online Store

The online store is used to sell your products on the Internet. In a way, it completes your “place” strategy in your marketing plan by reaching customers who prefer to shop online.

Social media

Consumers are very active in social media, especially on Facebook and Youtube. There are a lot of them and each of the social media plays an interesting role. Their proper use is based on strategic thinking you have done.

Newsletters

Info letters (newsletter) are a preferred tool in your strategies. Your customers, by giving you their email, give you permission to send them relevant information. Often, the newsletter is produced from your website and it lands directly with your customers, which social media also fails to achieve directly.

Online advertising

Google AdWords and Facebook offer tools to publicize your business that work very well, in the sense that their tools allow you to distribute your advertisements by reaching your target customers with great precision and at a significantly lower cost than in traditional media. Advertising can be used to attract consumers to your website and put them in interaction with the content.

In summary, the central pillar of a good digital marketing strategy is your customers. In today’s world, the companies that stand out among their customers are those that have established a strong positioning for their brand in the channels where their consumers are most receptive: digital marketing tools.

Triumph TE-1 shades lights on Triumph’s Electric future

Triumph’s half production-ready all-electric prototype has the potential to change the way we think about performance electric motorcycles.

Triumph may soon become the Tesla of two wheels
Triumph may soon become the Tesla of two wheels

The gradual ditching of pistons has been the recent trend as more and more automotive manufacturers are coming into the game. Triumph is no exception except the fact that Triumph is developing a game-changer electric motorcycle rather than just an electric offering in their lineup. Although there have been really fast electric vehicles out there, the electric motorcycle market has not really gained momentum as compared to electric cars. There’s where Triumph is planning to invade the market with its upcoming Electric motorcycle whose prototype name is given as Triumph TE-1. Let’s find out what’s hot.

When and how did it all start?

About 2 years ago Triumph announced that they are collaborating with Williams Advanced Engineering, Integral Powertrain, and WMG to develop an all-new electric motorcycle platform and all the related integrated systems. The goal is to enhance the credibility and show off the capability of British engineering by developing technology and an ecosystem for the future of electric mobility.

Triumph wanted to develop an electric motorcycle that would be something that no one has ever seen. They have communicated with their customers to know what they want from their future Triumph motorcycle and acted accordingly. Halfway down the development, Triumph has revealed some details about the new drivetrain, battery, and some prototype sketches of the TE-1.

The official sketch- Design

Triumph has officially made statements about the upcoming electric motorcycle to be inspired from their street and speed triple family and their released sketches depict the same. It draws upon the key design features of their naked bike lineup but with an even more angular, sharp, and slanted forward stance.

The official sketches reflect a careful overlapping of the traditional Triumph design elements along with futuristic design hints. Even with all its eye-catching lines and design, the Triumph TE 1 concept doesn’t scream about its electric drivetrain and looks quite conventional.

The drivetrain-

 Imagine getting an output of 180 horsepower from a motor that weighs less than 10 Kgs!!

Triumph along with the collaborating company- The Integral Powertrain has tried to make the drivetrain as light as possible and as compact as possible. This is achieved by integrating the electric motor with the inverter into a single compact unit. The resultant motor has been tremendously light and small as compared to anything available on the market, with the scale tipping just over 10 kgs.

Not just the weight, but the power output density has been taken care of as well. Intensive focus and effort have been given by the collaboration to make an electric drivetrain capable of squeezing a lot of power from itself. As a result, the mere 10kg engine was able to produce over 130kw (180bhp) of power in a bench test, which is unmatched by any standards.

The Heart of the Triumph TE-1

At the heart of any electric vehicle, the battery has been the main limiting factor in terms of performance, weight, range, and reliability. Triumph has taken feedbacks from all its potential customers and designed everything according to what they want in a  performance electric motorcycle. The battery pack is designed in such a way to ensure the power delivery is constant regardless of battery charge level, whereas other EVs will witness a drop in performance as the charge plummets.WAE merged two cell chemistry thus enhancing high energy density as well as high power density, providing more power for a longer period of time. With the resultant battery pack, they have pushed the boundaries in the battery department to make the unit as compact and as light as possible while making sure of the optimum position of the battery pack within the frameset. This would ensure a lightweight machine with a perfect distribution which would make for a fantastic handling motorcycle.

What about the production-ready model?

Normally the production-ready version of all vehicles differs quite a bit from the concept version, but we could see a near-identical styling of the production-ready model from the concept Triumph TE 1 as it’s not like any other offering from Triumph stable.

Triumph also officially stated that a rideable version of the prototype model is on the cards in 2021, however, the production version could take another year to be revealed. Sadly Triumph might not bring it to the Indian shores anytime soon. Considering the electric vehicle price in India to be highly sensitive, Triumph might not want to risk the failure of such a premium offering in the Indian Market

Conclusion

             Probably the best machine to start the electric motorcycle revolution

The prototype Triumph TE-1 is an all-out effort to develop not just a revolutionary electric performance-oriented motorcycle, but develop an advanced, refined, and flawless technology for futureproofing performance-oriented motorcycles. With the new technology, Triumph can successfully end the stereotype of electric motorcycles to be slow, boring heavy, and less capable, as the new TE 1 is a good 80% more powerful than its closest competitor, Harley Davidson livewire and the Zero SR/S. With a major Motorcycle manufacturer like Triumph, taking a huge stride in the Electric motorcycle market, their production-ready version of the TE 01 seems to be a start of a new era of two-wheeled Electric mobility. But again,shiftup.club always gives significance to the charging infrastructure before the EV themselves. Thus Triumph along with other manufacturers needs to step into the charging infrastructure as well, thus helping to create an entire electric ecosystem for two-wheelers. If everything goes well, Triumph along with its collaboration has the potential to do to the electric two-wheeler market what Tesla did to the Electric car market.
