Unlocking the power of digital media to fuel start-up growth

By Gastón Taratuta, Founder & CEO of Aleph Group

The world of today is more connected than ever. But every successful entrepreneur and marketer understands that one message does not fit all. Understanding subtle local realities, cultural specifics and languages are key to unlocking new market opportunities for any start-up in today’s highly competitive global economy. And tailoring a message is no longer just a matter of content – it’s also about the format.

Changing landscape

20 years ago, the internet was synonymous with the browser – you went online, visited some websites, and that was that. Today, that’s no longer the case due to the explosive growth and adoption of mobile apps. Now, every app has its own ecosystem where everything is walled in and platforms try their best to keep you there.

As such, every channel requires a different content format and delivery. Failing to understand the nuances and intricacies of individual platforms is as big a marketing faux pas as poor messaging.

To run successful campaigns, businesses must take care to understand how different users from different platforms interact with their content and what that means for their marketing goals. A ‘Like’ on Facebook is not the same as a ‘Like’ on Twitter, and users coming from different platforms will have different lifetime values (LTV).

This isn’t easy – learning to understand the users and their behaviors can take time, but it’s critical to taking a business to the next level.

One size doesn’t fit all

Businesses looking to grow domestically or internationally must be ready to adapt their content, format, delivery, and analysis, which can be challenging and time-consuming. Not only is there a deluge of elements to learn, track, and follow, these things are also extremely dynamic – trends change by the day, there are different conversations happening on different platforms, and everything from communication to marketing is constantly evolving.

Making a wrong move  can be more dangerous than not making any move at all. So how should  businesses stay on top of this?
