Hire a Good Proofreader

Even the best copywriters make mistakes. But the last thing you want is to lose credibility because of a typo. Our rule of thumb is no matter how small the job, everything gets proofed before production. Having a proofreader in place saves you time, money and embarrassment. However, you really need both a good copy editor and proofreader if you want your written communications to resonant with your audience.

A copyeditor reviews and modifies for the purpose of improving flow, quality and readability. • Rewrites entire sections of copy • Adds or removes content • Adds formatting elements: bullets, bolding, etc. • Simplifys messaging based on audience

A proofreader corrects production errors prior to publication. • Spelling errors • Typos • Spacing issues • Incorrect language usage • Verb tense

Luckily we have both copyeditors and proofreaders. Give Dazium a call.

Split Testing Offers Valuable Data

Split testing is an evidence-based practice designed to extract data with the goal of improving website metrics, form completions or purchases. It’s an important marketing tactic, and when used properly, helps clients boost sales and outperform a competitor.

We design a lot of email campaigns, webinars, formidables and registration pages using a variety of testing methods including A/B testing, Bucket testing and Multivariate testing. Designing different user experiences for different users allow us to provide clients with real data that can be used to improve the user experience.

Elements we might change when split testing:

  • Visual: pictures, videos, and colors
  • Text: headlines, calls to action, and descriptions
  • Layout: arrangement and size of buttons, menus, and forms
  • Visitor flow: how a website user gets from point A to B

Benefits of an Editorial Calendar

Before you start pushing content, create an effective workflow for developing and posting on social media platforms. Establishing an editorial calendar organizes your content and ensures you always have content to post. Depending on your industry, you should consider preparing enough content to span 9-12 months in advance. It gives your social team, writers and designers time to align their messaging before it reaches your audience.

Having an editorial calendar also provides insight into which content works, and which does not. Industry experts call this identifying Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Essentially, KPIs are used to better tailor your content to suit your audience. But managing an editorial calendar requires time and a team dedicated to improving your marketing efforts. With a personalized and effective approach to your social strategy, Dazium will design an editorial calendar just for you. We don’t take the blanket approach.

Consider a Customer Loyalty Program

I have a confession. I hate loyalty cards and almost always decline the offer when asked. I refuse to hold up the checkout line by searching through a bunch of cards just to find the one that may get me one step closer to a discount or freebie. But when done right, they can and do work. It’s been proven, loyal customers do spend more.

Returning customers spend 67% more than new customers.

Social media allows you to build patient trust, connect with the community before you’re actually needed, and attract new patients.

Twitter – Write less, but be savvy about it. The traditional 140-character limit has been changed, but short tweets are more likely to catch the attention of your audience. Twitter is a quick-read platform, with strategically placed hashtags. Facebook – This site puts the social in social media! Catchy headlines with accompanying images will resonate stronger with users. Posts aligned with a larger campaign will strengthen the brand experience, but that demands an experienced content designer.

Instagram – It used to be just about the image — but using hashtags is key to getting users to find you & forward you on. Quality photos and clever captions are key for this platform.

YouTube – Anyone can shoot a video and post it to YouTube, after all that’s where stars are discovered. Showcase your brand in ways interactive and entertaining with videos and short clips.
