WHO IS MOST CONNECTED?
81% of all Americans say they go online everyday. But an increasing number say they are constantly online.
Not surprisingly, about half of younger adults (18-29 years old) are constantly connected, but other groups with high usage include college-educated adults, those with higher incomes and non-rural residents. Internet use is increasing across the board however. For example, the share of constantly online Americans ages 50 to 64 has risen from 12% in 2015 to 19% in 2019.
We no longer go online. We live online. Make sure that you understand your audience’s expectation of your online presence.

Search is increasingly more conversational with specific questions being asked. Does your business answer the questions your audience is asking?
GET BETTER RESULTS
Consistency is one of the best ways to get results from your digital marketing efforts. Having repeatable processes helps save you time while being consistent.
Use checklists or job aids to train your staff and remind you of the steps needed to implement a specific marketing tactic. A good, documented process makes every effort a best practice. Examples might include a blog post checklist, how to publish and optimize a YouTube video, or a template for tracking email marketing results. This article talks about how to effectively create a job aid.
These checklists can be shared documents, or how-to videos you record while completing a process. Need help streamlining your marketing processes? Our templates and planning can help you get results.
