Smart phones and tablets are fast becoming the primary way people connect to the web. As a result, mobile advertising is quickly becoming the most cost-effective, efficient way to reach customers, outperforming their stationary counterparts five to one.

We can also design a mobile website that includes specific functionality such as tap-to-dial and device location information.
Social media has not only changed the way we communicate with each other, but also revolutionized the way consumers relate to businesses and brands. It is the new word of mouth and the new customer service. Social is simply too big and too important to be neglected or ignored.
Marketing is now a dialogue between the consumer and the brand, and the customer is in charge. The dominance of mobile adds a new dimension, with consumers expecting to be active participants, part of a community and truly interacting, from anywhere.
As leader in the field of social media, we understand how to use integrated social marketing techniques to communicate with target audiences and motivate behavior change. We also recognize the importance of monitoring the conversation, and are prepared to jump in when necessary.
At Starmark, we believe that solving marketing challenges requires not only accurate data, but also powerful marketing analytics and sophisticated database technology. Today’s fragmented media landscape requires tracking the consumer’s experience across a multitude of channels. Only by understanding the totality of brand sentiment and consumer choice can you make informed decisions about the direction of your marketing, your company message, and your product.
With broad and deep insight into consumer behavior, you have the intelligence to drive new customer acquisition, improve the profitability of existing customers and help your company retain as many profitable customers as possible. The real power of data is in utilizing cutting-edge customer profiling, predictive modeling and segmentation tools, as well as using social networking to monitor customer trends and brand awareness.
The data we glean from online tracking and measurement allows us to profile, analyze, and target better than ever. Then, we reinvest that knowledge to maximize return.
