The Importance of a Business’s e-Marketing Strategies
A business needs clients to buy its products, and to find clients – and let them find your business – you need to market it. That means driving traffic to the website; and, crucially, getting the traffic to take action and ultimately buy from you.
To use e-Marketing optimally, the business must clearly focus on its goals and strategy and know what tactics it needs to get traffic (and customers) to the website. It needs to know its product or service inside out and thoroughly research prospective customers and demand.
It’s no use having a product you are proud of if there is insufficient demand for it. To do that, you need to know who your audience is, what they want, and where they are. Even if there is a demand for what you’re offering, you still have to put the product in front of the audience. You can use various e-marketing tools to find the correct audience and then drive it to the website. The combination you use will depend on your business, your product and the research you’ve done. These are the main ones to choose from:
Content marketing involves the content used to engage the targeted audience- articles, blogs, and videos – whatever will attract buyers. The content has to provide information, entertain, engage and ultimately result in the visitor taking action. Furthermore, it must be up-to-date, original, informative, and entertaining to lead to conversion. This comes back to knowing your target audience and what content will resonate with them and turn them into buyers.
A mailing list is one of the best ways to market a business, and a powerful way to engage with prospects, get information to them and market your product. Remember that even if a visitor to your website doesn’t buy from you, try and capture their email address. For instance, offer something in exchange for the visitor’s email address.
The use of social media has become a powerful way of promoting a business. It allows the business to communicate with customers in a personal way, encourages interaction and can boost traffic to the website. A consistent social media interaction and presence will help build trust and provide information and valuable customer feedback. It is crucial to make sure your website is responsive to all mobile users and that they have a good experience. People get impatient and frustrated when they are redirected or told they must use another version.
Good Public Relations, or PR, remains valuable, particularly for larger businesses. Publications (on the Internet and physical) like magazines, newspapers and blogs always look for a new and interesting story. Getting exposure to a publication that focuses on your niche is important and valuable. A good story that is relevant to your targeted audience and appears where they are likely to come across it is priceless.
Pay-per-Click advertising is not for everyone but can be a worthwhile way to find customers. It needs cash, and the business has to be sure it gets a good return on its investment. The aspects of such a campaign are the ad, the offer and the landing page. They need to work together for the campaign to be successful. The landing page must deliver what is promised and be adapted (SEO Optimised) so that search engines can find keywords.
Affiliate marketing is another way to get your product to your audience. This is when other people market your products in return for a percentage of the sales they generate. It helps to broaden the exposure of your product as the affiliate marketers advertise it on their sites. However, ensuring you are comfortable with where and by whom your product is endorsed is a good idea.
Know and use SEO in your marketing campaign. SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) means that the website uses keywords so that search engines can find them. Furthermore, your business appears high on its list and can thus be easily found when customers search for a business like yours. Changing SEO standards means that websites must constantly be updated with relevant content and that webmasters must be aware of the latest trends.
