Is marketing your company online free? No, it’s not and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. To market your business online successfully, it will cost a small amount of money. However, the services you receive will be of good value. We guarantee that if you use the right online marketing techniques, interest in your business will skyrocket. You will be able to claim a bigger piece of the market, and you might even get to steal a few customers from your competition. So, the question you should now be asking is what type of internet marketing do I need to use to make this happen? We thought you might ask, that’s why we’re recommending these techniques and services.
Let’s start with the easiest one to understand and that’s PPC or pay by click marketing. When a customer uses the internet, they search for keywords in a search engine like Google or Yahoo. They don’t look for specific companies or businesses unless they have already made up their mind on which one they are going to use. So, if they were searching for used cars, they wouldn’t type in www.carsforsale.com, they would type in “used cars for sale.” Then they’ll select a link from the search results. They will usually only look at a couple, and that’s why you want your website on the first page. Ideally, you want it at the top of the first page and there is one sure fire way to achieve this. You pay a company to add your site as one of the top sponsored links. Adwords is the most popular form of PPC so you should consider in investing. You will be amazed by what it could do for your company.
Remember, you want your business to be seen as dynamic and interesting. At the minute, the most popular form of social advertising is by sharing pictures and images. So, you pin a picture from your site on Pinterest; people share it and your search ranking increases. Thus, you get more interest in your business with very little effort on your part. But, we think shortly video shares are going to overtake image sharing as the most popular form, and it’s already started to happen. You might be using Snapchat in your personal time, but we wonder whether you have started using it to market your business. Others like IGN have. They have live stories active on snapchat every day, giving updates on their site, and you should do the same.
PPC will get customers to view your site. Video Ads will get them interested in searching for it as well as keeping your business fresh in their minds. But, what about what happens after they find your business site online. You want to make sure that they commit to a purchase of the product or service that you are selling. To do this, you should invest in CRO. Companies that offer CRO collect data and know exactly what turns a viewer into a customer. If you contact them, they will assist you on how to use CRO to tweak on your site.
Use these resources and you can be assured that your business’s name will be the one on everyone’s lips.
