    What's Working Best in Digital Marketing

    What's Working Best in Digital Marketing

    Liz Diedrich, founder and CEO of Diedrich RPM (research propelled marketing), provides a variety of helpful perspectives in this week’s One Take CEO Interviews.

    One pertains to what’s working best in marketing today. “We’re seeing very dramatic shifts in terms of what is working digitally: Retargeting—the ads that follow you around— has produced huge conversions in of all things hospitality,” she says. “The lesson here is to not give up, to be agile, look at what’s happening and test things.”

    Another observation: “Get out there and talk with other people that have your best interest at heart, and take care of yourself, too,” Diedrich says. This may have seemed rather basic a concept pre-Covid-19, but she’s noticed more and more business owners who are instead falling into the trap of hunkering down to fight the pandemic and related recession, alone.



    ABOUT ONE TAKE CEO INTERVIEWS Minnesota CEOs share their take on how best to lead during the Covid-19 pandemic and it's unprecedented impact on their operations, and the economy. Each interview is recorded in one take with no edits, and runs 10 to 20 minutes in duration.

    One Take CEO Interview with Mathnasium Franchisee Bobby Tarnowski

    One Take CEO Interview with Mathnasium Franchisee Bobby Tarnowski

    Covid-19 related restrictions are forcing many businesses owners to contemplate raising prices, yet doing so can hurt sales. Better options, says Bobby Tarnowski, are to create new types of product or service offerings, provide financing to those who cannot afford to pay for things outright, and try new and unique ways of marketing. Such constructive problem solving makes sense given he's a math enthusiast who owns a 10-location, 65-employee Mathnasium franchise in the Twin Cities. Tarnowski shares these ideas and more during this week’s One Take CEO Interviews. [One of his creative ways of marketing is to ask business leaders to present to Mathnasium students fun examples of how they and their companies use math every day. If you have such an example to share, contact him at 763-269-6966.]
