by | Dec 1, 2015 | Blog

In today’s competitive marketplace the only way any association or nonprofit organisation can stay afloat is with effective marketing, and today that means digital marketing. We recommend the following astute strategies to save you money on your marketing budget planning:

Simple Website vs. complex Website

You can very easily use, e.g. a WordPress as your basic platform, saving you money on an expensive web designer. There are many templates, designed beautifully to select from. A WordPress or similar platform is very easy to maintain in-house, saving you even more money. You can change or add new content internally, which means you do not need a new website to adjust to changing web standards as time goes on.

Social Media Updates Can be Scheduled in Advance

Using online tools you can create your posts well in advance and set up a schedule for them to appear over a period of time. You can use a similar tool supplied by Facebook for updates as well. This will save you time and money managing your social media accounts.

Bulk Emails Save on Costs

There is a number of different email marketing tools that you can access online to effectively send out mass emails and email newsletters. You can even choose your own design template and personalize your emails and newsletters, saving you a lot of time and of course, time is money.

Save Money with Cloud Communications

Standard office communication equipment is fast becoming obsolete with the advent of the Cloud. You no longer need fax machines and servers or a landline phone system. This saves you money on fax and phone lines, paper, ink and the cost of maintaining and repairing this equipment.
