Get ready to turn your online marketing campaigns from good to great,
Where has 2017 gone? Yes, I know 2017 isn’t over yet – but somehow it feels like the year has flown by.
With just 4 months left in the year, and a potentially busy season ahead, come new challenges and victories for various aspects of our lives and businesses too. Accordingly, this includes taking some time to review your online marketing campaigns and strategies.
Remember, the online platform is an ever-changing world. As it is, you will need to update yourself and do the needed steps to ensure the utmost efficiency and reliability of your online business not only for today, for for all the tomorrows to come.
So, are you ready to take these last four months of 2017 on—and use the necessary strategies to turn your online marketing campaigns from good to great?
If so, let’s take a look at some of the crucial steps to round out the year:
1. Know Who Your Good Clients Are—and Find More Like Them
In every business, there’s always a particular group of people who support and appreciate your business more than the others. These are the clients who will most likely bring your business to greater heights—and these are the people you should be looking for.
Use your google analytics data to understand your audience. Decipher what they want and need—and adjust your strategies according to what you learn. The more you understand your target market, the better you’ll be at finding those who you should be focusing on.
2. Boost Your Social Media Marketing Campaigns
Social media marketing continues to grow year over year—and it’s going to get even bigger as we wrap up 2017 and move forward into 2018. As it is, you might want to ensure that you are getting enough social media mileage to make your message known. Otherwise, you might get left out—and you certainly don’t want that to happen.
Here are some tips to make this happen:
- Create interesting YouTube videos to mesmerize your audience and to make them understand what you and your company are all about.
- Create interesting content and share them via blogs, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and any other social media platforms you may be active on. This will not only increase your website visibility, but will most likely help your SEO (search engine optimization) efforts as well.
- Integrate social media with your online marketing plan. This will ultimately result to better overall efficiency—and many other benefits throughout the year.
3. Be More Interactive
Remember that online campaigns are about communicating and sharing with your intended market. Gone are the days of impersonal and faceless brands. With the digital world we are now living in—marketing has become more and more about building relationships. Accordingly, this is something that you will need to take into account.
When people contact you online, ask questions through your company site or page, or email you directly—respond to them as quickly as you can. This will create and ensure the impression that you do care about your customers, and this will greatly benefit the success of your online marketing campaigns as well.
4. Use Offline Marketing Strategies for Your Online Campaigns (and Vice Versa)
Digital marketing vs traditional marketing – Did you know that your traditional marketing strategies can actually do your online digital marketing campaigns a whole lot of good? You can use discount packages, give out freebies and offer loyalty cards to your intended market. These methods have been tried and tested in the marketing world—and they will most likely be a good addition to your online campaigns as well.
On the other hand, you can also use online marketing strategies to augment your sales from traditional marketing. You also can try to encourage people to visit your online store or website to know more about your company or brand (aside from shopping at your physical store).
For example: you can hand out online discount vouchers or promo codes that they can use when shopping at your online store. This will encourage them to give your site a visit, consequently leading to greater web traffic and of course, more sales.
These are just some of the steps to take when planning to make your company bigger and better as you round out 2017. In the end, one thing is clear: these next few months offers another opportunity for you to become even more successful. And with the proper strategies—that’s not really an impossible feat.
