THE SHIFT TO DIGITAL

July 1, 2021

Mortarr breaks down how to capitalize on digital marketing within the commercial construction + design industry.

The way commercial designers, architects, and specifiers are sourcing new products has changed. The process now begins with a digital search. So, if you've been looking for a sign to really dive into your digital marketing strategy, consider this it.

In order to utilize a digital approach to grow your business, you have to meet your buyers where they are — online. It can be overwhelming to start, but here at Mortarr we pride ourselves on being your marketing right-hand. We're here to help you navigate this changing landscape and make the most of your digital marketing strategy.

“We’re different because we’re B2B” is simply no longer the case.

In a recent internal study, Mortarr found that 97% of designers cite the first step in their design process as a digital search. Professionals want to search in the most efficient way possible from sources they trust. There is a need for immediacy in gathering the information needed to spec a product into a project plan. 

 

In short, it’s past time to figure out your digital marketing strategy. Buyers are looking for information and in order to survive and grow, you must meet your buyers where they are — online.

How are you getting in front of these new buyers? Many companies believe that a website and posting to social media is all that is needed in order to truly market digitally. 

 

While traditional marketing tactics like print and tradeshows are still alive and well, these tactics simply are not enough to keep your business growing. And despite the drastic changes in buyer behavior, companies have been laggards to adopt a digital approach to acquiring new buyers. 


A website and social strategy primarily puts you in front of buyers who already know who you are. So you have to ask yourself, digitally, how are new buyers finding me? A strong digital marketing strategy includes: 

  • An Engaging Website

  • SEO 

  • Content Marketing 

  • Email Marketing 

  • Social Media Marketing 

  • Search Engine Marketing 

  • Paid Media + Trade Publications 

  • Display Advertising

It’s a lot. That’s why we built Mortarr — to make it easier for businesses like yours to market to this new age buyer without the headache of doing a million great things all at once.
