Getting started with digital marketing can be intimidating. There are so many forms of it and so many ways to go about it – you need to think about social media, search marketing, and content marketing, and perhaps you’re not even sure what the differences among all of those are.
One thing is for sure: you want your website to be useful, and you want it to show up in search results when people search for relevant keywords. If your website isn’t appearing in search engine results pages (SERPs) – or maybe it is, but on the second or the third page (positions 11-30) chances are that your website traffic is low.
Digital marketing is a broad term that encompasses different types of online advertising, such as Facebook advertising, other social media advertising, content marketing, email marketing, and so much more. In this day and age, brands and marketing campaigns focus hard on their online presence because people spend a lot of their time on the internet, whether for work or leisure.
The goal of any website – regardless of what it’s about – is to have as many targeted visitors as possible. If the website is offering a product or a service, more visitors usually means more profit. If the website is purely informational or for entertainment, it is likely earning money through the ads on its pages. More website traffic can also mean more profit.
Here’s how you can succeed in these changing times when the pandemic moves your cheese:
Have you read the mini book “Who Moved My Cheese” by Spencer Johnson? I read it a few years ago (downloaded the audio book from the Toronto Public Library actually) and this short read (listen) really changed the way I look at life and business changes. Published in 1998, this 96-page primer sold 28 million copies and is truly relevant in our lives today, in 2020.
Social media trends can rarely stay the same every year. The main theme for brands in 2020: Rethink what “success” means for your social media marketing.
Companies today need to find a balance between making sense of their statistics while finding new ways to engage with the audience. There’s probably a no better time than now to reflect on your social media strategy moving forward.
When you’re ready to start your website optimization journey, the first thing you need to do is to get a comprehensive SEO audit. It includes analyzing your site’s performance and how it compares to competitors on search engines. It guarantees you that your website is up-to-date, which will also improve your website ranking. You get actionable insights that will help you reach your internet marketing goals.
Online reputation management is vital for your digital strategy in order to keep a positive brand identity for consumers. You can try to search for your brand on search engines manually, but you probably won’t find much information.
