So, what is Digital Marketing? A common misconception around digital marketing is that it’s similar to traditional marketing. Although the concept of marketing itself is similar, the elements within digital marketing is far more complex and analytical than traditional marketing. In simple terms, traditional marketing includes advertisements on the radio, tv, magazines, newspapers or through word-of-mouth and referrals. Digital marketing on the other hand, involves the use of internet, technology and media to reach more people who would also be interested in the products or services that your business may have to offer. Essentially, the core concept of digital marketing involves how to best utilise data to realize marketing objectives. With digital marketing we can measure precisely the effectiveness of a marketing campaign and how well potential customers are responding to the advertising materials, whether it appeals to them or not. By knowing this, we can ensure that we constantly improve the message that we intend to relay to the potential customers for marketing campaigns’ success. In this day and age, the internet and social media has proven to be a crucial part of everyone’s lives, especially after Covid-19 taking the world by storm and leaving businesses with uncertainties. Now, with the rise in technology and development of campaign performance measurement tools, the effectiveness of traditional marketing is often questioned. Digital marketing is no longer an option, it’s essentially a necessity for every small business to grow their presence online moving forward from today. Read the full article.

This numerical code uniquely identifies every single product and is the core of the barcode, the most important supply chain standard in history. Today, the barcode is scanned over six billion times every day and remains one of the most trusted symbols in the world.Watch video about this important anniversary (and the future):https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuP5_x8CG0M&t=1sMaria Palazzolo, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of GS1 Australia said, "I firmly believe that the digitalisation of the GTIN is one of the most significant milestones in the life of our organisation."From the linear EAN/UPC barcode to 2DBarcodes, the need to capture more than just product and pricing information is becoming more urgent and increasingly important. In order to do this successfully we must bring industry together to collaborate and to harmonise. The journey into the future has well and truly begun."GS1 standards such as the barcode continue to help make the vast complexity of modern, global business flow quickly, efficiently and securely, simplifying all kinds of supply chain processes in almost every sector all around the world. However, as consumers demand more and better product information, it is time to bring barcodes to the next level. Developments towards next-generation barcodes (for example square barcodes like QR codes), which can hold vastly more information, should be used to empower consumers with trusted information and reshape global commerce, just as the GTIN did half a century ago.50 years agoThe 1971 historic meeting took place in New York City and included leaders from the biggest names in groceries, retail and consumer goods at the time, including Heinz, General Mills, Kroger and Bristol Meyer. The executives agreed to create a system to uniquely identify every single product, calling it the Global Trade Item Number, or GTIN. With great foresight, they believed that the GTIN could have a positive impact even beyond the grocery store - from warehouses to board rooms - and would boost speed and efficiency of transactions and processes that could transform everything from supply chains to consumer experiences. And they agreed at the meeting to continue to innovate together to create a system that would benefit businesses and consumers alike. Decades later, the BBC named the resulting outcome one of "the 50 things that made the world economy."

Carlton icon The French Lettuce looking forward to welcoming customers once more 2021-03-24T07:57:58Z carlton-icon-the-french-lettuce-looking-forward-to-welcoming-customers-once-more-1 Melbourne, Australia -- 24 March 2021Modern Australian patisserie The French Lettuce Carlton will reopen to customers this Friday, 26 March after a month of renovations to upgrade the venue’s layout. Locals will again be able to enjoy a cup of Veneziano coffee and plenty of slices, tarts and pastries featuring local artisanal ingredients with French and Italian inspiration. Since pastry chef Peter Brown and wife Nicole took over ownership in 2003 after the venue opened in the ‘80s, The French Lettuce has been cheered for its cakes -- supplying masterpieces for the likes of Katy Perry, Bert Newton and Eddie McGuire. The team has also made a replica of Prince William’s and Princess Kate’s wedding cake for a private celebration. The Brown children Campbell, Molly and Hudson became managers of the café in 2017 and despite the difficulties last year presented, The French Lettuce opened a second, bigger site in Bulleen in early August 2020 and is proving to be a favourite with locals. The French Lettuce has been featured in Broadsheet, Fairfax, Urban List and on Channel Nine’s Postcards TV program. It has been recognised for its culinary prowess, having been awarded best vanilla slice in Melbourne by The Age and runner-up in the same category by the Herald Sun, among other achievements. The patisserie gives back to the community through its involvement with the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal and donations, including leftover food, to the Salvation Army, Oznam House, Sisters of the Poor and St Mary’s House of Welcome.The French Lettuce will also get involved in this year’s Good Friday Appeal by donating the money made from sales of its popular vanilla slice at both locations from Monday, 29 March to Good Friday (2 April). Co-manager Hudson Brown says, “We are really looking forward to contributing to this year’s Good Friday Appeal as a way of giving back to the community.“We plan to sell 3500 units of vanilla slices so we want Melburnians to have morning tea with us next week for a great cause.” Media outlets are able to organise an interview with Hudson Brown through Eat Marketing Concepts.
