Got your website live? Congratulations. You’re halfway done!
So what’s next?
Getting your business a website is a must, but have you ever thought how your online audience will know about it in this cut-throat competition? The answer is Marketing and a lot of it!
Over the years, the marketing industry has evolved tremendously from traditional to digital means. It is no secret how businesses have witnessed an unprecedented spike in their sales graph implementing such digital marketing strategies.
If you still haven’t used such techniques or have no idea where to begin from, here is a list of five key marketing practices to consider for your company or agency:
By now, most businesses are familiar with the importance of Search Engine Optimization in internet marketing. To effectively draw clients to your website or social media presence, SEO must be the first step in your digital marketing plan. Understanding what your potential clients are looking for and how they are going about their research will help you determine the best keywords to use. Then make sure that the keywords link to great content!
What your content says is as important as the way it is presented. Content must be clear, concise, grammatically correct, and well-written. Blogs are a must, as they can help boost your online site’s SEO and provide a more casual way of presenting information about your business. A key thing to remember is that blogs should be updated regularly with new content and resources for potential clients. You can deliver the content in text, video, podcast or images with captions, or ideally, a mix of all. Surprise your viewers with exciting new content on a regular basis.
Social media (especially Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram) are where your potential clients live. So, take advantage of these free means of "advertising" to draw them to your company or agency. Create short, crisp content and share it with as many connections as you can. Reach out to make new connections and share content that is relevant to your potential clients. An important note: Be careful about the wording as well as references in what you post. Online reputation management is the most critical aspect of the company’s branding strategy. One small slip or error can result in long-term damage to the business.
Clearly define/create your brand and stick to it. There's no changing it midstream! Develop consistent - but fresh - content around your brand and present it in a catchy, exciting or surprising way to your customers. It is where your business can really show its "personality." There are also ways of using Google to help build your brand, so be sure to investigate all possible options.
Finally, you may want to consider advertising on some social media sites with banner ads or other types of ads. Consider Facebook ads, for instance. Search engine ads are another excellent option. You can significantly increase the online promotion of your company or agency through digital advertising and attract only the relevant traffic. So give it some serious thought and do your research!
