If you want no other reason to be hygienic in your online marketing, it is so you win.
A clean process, pipeline, tool, or workflow, allows things to go from A to B faster, easier, effectively and more efficiently. There is less friction. Speeds wins.
This is why an electric car can go faster than a gas powered car. Less moving parts. Less energy lost between those parts. The power goes from the battery directly to the wheels.
What does Hygiene have to do with online marketing?
Marketing Hygiene is the process of maintaining the freshness and function of our marketing tools, processes, and strategies to preserve the overall health and wellbeing of your business.
Hygiene can do more than save our online marketing – keeping our processes clean, also means keeping them sustainable.
Watch my talk “What Does Hygiene and Sustainability Have to Do with Marketing?” with Green Geeks right here.
Sustainability can save the planet. It can also save you time.
We think most often of sustainability as having to do with the climate, food production and consumption, even our survival as a species.
Sustainability can also be about how we build or decorate our homes, or what we wear. It can be about our personal, work, or cultural relationships.
What do we mean by “Unhygienic” Online Marketing?
Unhygienic online marketing is not best practice. It is broken marketing, and it is slowing you down.
- + Unoptimized popups and overlays
- + Complicated signup processes
- + Slow loading websites
- + Fake reviews
- + Freebies that cost
- + Slow response time to queries
- … and so much more
