Six Ways To Market Your Business Digitally
Every organization needs to market itself or its product. But choosing the best way to market could be tiring and at times frustrating. The emergence of digital marketing and its increasing popularity have opened up new and more natural ways for marketers.
6 Ways To Market Your Business Digitally
Studying user behavior is very important for any marketing strategy. Behavioral tracking and maintaining data is easier with digital platforms.
A user may be studied by the specific type of products or services they have consumed, depending upon their past behavior. Here are some most prominent ways to score a good market share in the blink of an eye:
1. SEO Optimization:
Getting a website is the foremost thing an organization does to mark its online presence. But building a site is just not enough.
The ranking of the website in the Search Engine Results is crucial. It has been observed that whenever a user searches for something, it is most likely that they will visit a result amongst the top three rankers.
To rank amongst the top results, keywords play an important role. Keyword in the context of SEO is a word or a group of words that describe the content on a webpage. Optimizing your website on-page and off-page, both are equally essential.
The content posted on and off the webpage contains keywords, which when searched for, gets you to the pages containing them. Hiring an SEO expert would rather be an easy option than trying to do it yourself.
Updating content regularly and enriching your content with multimedia files can further enhance your SEO rating.
SEO ratings are also improved by building links to your website or a page that you want to increase the ranking of. Search engines’ bots trace the links that a webpage or a website is linked to.
Quality links improve your ranking whereas spamming may boost your rating immediately but cannot sustain it, or sometimes may even get your website off the grid.
Advertising your business online is pretty easy. There are plenty of service providers that can create your ads online. Google AdWords is the most common advertising tool used for digital advertising.
Another option is to use social media advertising. Chris Cabaniss from Falcon Digital Marketing says that the key to success with Facebook ads has the right funnel set up to take your customers through when once they engage with your ad.
Online advertisements are cheaper when compared to conventional broadcast advertisements. You can choose to pay per click or pay for many outreaches. PPC is the most active mode of advertising digitally.
Online ads can be in the form of a looped video, or an audio file, or merely a poster. Google has come up with business sites which is another way to manage your ads. You can manage your keywords, upload fresh content, and even engage directly with the customer as on an actual website.
3. Social Media Platforms:
With the intensive development in mobile technology and manifold increase in social media users, you can outreach your potential customers with just one click. There are sponsored ads targeted to your pre-decided customer base, which is the user.
Out of all, social media marketing is the easiest and promising tool to be used. Use your contacts, upload your content, and tag your keywords. This is all you need to do to get started with social media marketing.
Further to gain more out of your efforts, paid promotions can be opted for. Target a considerable mass of audience as you wish to; based upon, demography, interests, age, etc.
4. Guest Posting:
Driving the traffic to your website is the next step after building the website. The sole purpose of marketing is to drive traffic.
Another effective method which is intensely used over by the marketers is guest posting blogs to different sites which could work as link building as well as drive traffic to your website.
You are creating a blog post linking the post to your desired webpage or the site itself. Driving more and more traffic to your website means more sales. But there are things that you need to keep in mind before guest posting on any site.
The website should not be a PBN (Private Blog Network) or spam. Search engines tend to discard such links, and eventually, your marketing strategy would fail.
5. Email Marketing:
Contacting the customers through email is another effective way used by digital marketers. You can send offers or discounts, newsletter subscription or even a feedback form to engage with your customer directly.
The critical point here is to make sure that you don’t end up in the junk or spam folder of your customer’s email. To avoid this, the email should be sent through a good server and should not contain any explicit content.
Email marketing requires a vast database. The emails can be purchased from data firms or can also be accumulated over time through form filling and traffic mining.
Again the sole purpose of this tool is to drive traffic towards your website. But the traffic driven with the help of email marketing is more promising and likely to turn into a sale.
6. Online Public Relation Management:
Use of videography for advertisements has given a new pleasure driven marketing with the increase in popularity of youtube. Depending upon where an ad is placed during video playback, these ads can be divided into three types namely, pre-roll ads, mid-roll ads, and post-roll ads.
The advertiser can select the duration, placing, adjacent videos and even the skip option, to reach out to the desired mass.
With video ads, a viewer can experience pleasure, affection, escape, relaxation or control although it has been observed that pleasure driven ads are more likely to receive a positive response from the viewers and can turn up more valued customers.
In this sense, maintaining an online relationship is easier with the customer when the campaign is emotion driven.
Online marketing in comparison to conventional marketing has proved to be more efficient. More and more business are joining the movement and gaining its benefits at merely half the cost.
