Balancing features and benefits with emotional triggers can be a delicate procedure, but one that can yield the best results.

Local marketing is about reaching the potential customers in close proximity to you and your business. One of the most effective methods to reach this target audience is through mobile search results. Google tailors mobile search results to show local businesses and service providers that are close to the location the search and device it came from. That means having a mobile friendly website that is optimized for local search results with Google Maps is an extremely important aspect of converting local marketing traffic.

Every website has to efficiently create value for both the website users and the website administrators. Many businesses are trying to focus on either profit or purpose in their marketing decisions, but there is a way to meet both goals together. Profits being any action that helps to drive sales to the business, and purpose being the determining factor that drives a purchase decision or productive workplace. When it comes to digital marketing having a business that is purpose driven can help build lasting relationships with customers. Engaging with the brand or community online can make them feel as if they are contributing to that purpose.
The best case scenario is to natively intertwine purpose with profit. In this scenario the customer feels that buying a product or service is serving the purpose they want to be a part of. Essentially this allows them to be their best self, which is an emotional trigger for purchasing decisions. They can participate in a community or idea they hold in high regard by using a product or service which creates profit.
Purpose also serves to build value for employees in the workplace. Purpose driven ideas are more likely to make a create a connection between the product or service and the employee who is working with it everyday. Working with a specific purpose can be a major motivating factor in the lives of many people and can help create value for them in their workplace.
