PostcardMania Adds New Technology to its Flagship Multichannel Marketing Campaign, Enhancing Online and Offline Integration for Small Businesses

PostcardMania, the $97MM marketing technology firm employing 350 staff in the Tampa Bay, FL area, added two new digital targeting features — geofencing and contextual search retargeting — to its nationally recognized multichannel marketing campaign package, Everywhere Small Business.

PostcardMania is one of the few marketing companies in the world capable of delivering complex online and offline-integrated campaigns like Everywhere Small Business without any outsourcing, affording clients superior quality control, shorter turnaround times and competitive cost savings, a driving factor in maximizing return on investment. These integrated solutions are all part of PostcardMania’s larger mission to help small businesses get the best results and the highest ROI from their advertising campaigns.

Going forward, PostcardMania’s contextual search retargeting, to be called Browsed-Content Targeting, enables businesses to reach prospects based on topics they research online. For example, an automotive repair company could display digital ads to people who research “check engine light repair” or “replacing car a/c.”

Bank Failures and Inflation Making You Sweat? Here Are 3 Marketing Moves to Make Your Business Recession-Proof.

If you’re a business owner, a lot has happened already this year to make you stop and consider the state of your (and your business’s) money.

Inflation has every dollar shrinking in value, federal rate hikes have made it more costly to borrow, and while recent bank failures may not have impacted your business outright, it certainly caused a justifiable stir.

With all of this going on, my husband and I decided to meet with a mentor and financial consultant who has managed hundreds of millions of dollars in capital over the last 25 years to review our investments.

He pointed out that, while we both have various investments, we’ve primarily been putting our money into something that has paid off many times over standard stock market returns — and that something is our respective businesses.

How I Increased Staff Retention by 5% Last Year While the Nation Hit Record-High Quitting Numbers

Building a successful business comes with a myriad of challenges, but I’ll argue that retaining amazing staff over long periods of time is in the top three … but not for me.

In 2022, about 50.5 million Americans quit their jobs, which was 2.7 million more than the number of Americans quitting in 2021, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported. But even more shocking is the fact that both 2021 and 2022 were record-breaking years respectively, seeing the highest numbers of quits in history since the BLS started tracking the figure back in 2001. These are the years economists are calling the “Great Resignation.”

So, how does a business owner achieve the goal of attracting and keeping the best talent amidst these nationwide quitting trends? Continue reading here to learn the answer.

It is possible your leads are getting lost somewhere down the pipeline, and it’s your job to find out where and improve it. To save you the agony of not knowing where to start, I will line up some suggestions.
