So last time I asked the questions ‘GDPR OR THE NEW FACEBOOK ALGORITHM- WHICH WILL IMPACT DIGITAL MARKETING THE MOST ?‘
I think that on balance its GDPR whilst the big news feed changes Facebook announced in January ( seems so long ago now doesn’t it !) do put an increasing emphasis on great content and engagement with your community ( not engagement bait) and of course, ads GDPR has a wider significance.
GDPR of course impacts on the management of all data across all platforms online and offline. Its significance from a digital marketing point of view is as a catalyst for a new more open honest and transparent relationship with your customers and prospects.
Thankfully it should see the beginning of the end for Spam of all kinds. Content-driven inbound marketing will become yet more important across all channels, not just Facebook.
What do you think?

Businesses are constantly searching for new and novel ways to attract new Customers . Many are turning to handwritten communication . Surprising in this digital age ? No not really its all about novelty and perhaps a bit of formality ! Consequently business is booming for handwritten letters .No one is suggesting that we all go back to handwritten letters en masse there is the small matter of cost and coverage . Digital is vastly cheaper ,has huge coverage and is much more measurable.
However a handwritten message is powerful too perhaps we can suggest that it can be used most effectively for follow up from an initial enquiry or targeting key prospects .
So here’s a few ideas for how we can use handwritten communications to complement digital marketing :
-For some written communications hand write the envelope
-Target key customers with a handwritten letter
-Send thank you cards after an appointment or even better after an order !
-Write with a fountain pen and use a classic script
There are a few businesses growing to meet this new trend charging companies to write handwritten correspondence to customers on their behalf. One example is Inkpact .Or of course you can dust off the fountain pen and reacquaint yourself with ‘Writers’s Cramp’
