SEO

SEO

While digital content may be the core of your online presence, SEO is most assuredly the core of your online success. While SEO has gone through countless changes over the years, it has reached a state of maturity and dependability. If you are not already aware, SEO reaches into almost every single aspect of web development, marketing and advertising. It touches customer reviews, social media and content creation. SEO can make your website traffic buzz or fizzle, and it can make your revenue peak or sink. Every company absolutely needs a comprehensive SEO strategy, not simply goals but a long-term path for achieving and maintaining success on Google. In a time when Google algorithm updates are common occurrence, for better or worse everyone working with online media needs to be cognizant of the impact Google (and others) have on the success of your online marketing and advertising investment.

Email

Email marketing is alive and thriving, in fact email is so dependable it should be considered your ace-in-the-hole. As email matures into a trusted old friend, consumers who opt-in to your emails fully expect to have at least one email a week and are disappointed if they do not hear from you almost immediately. There is no need to be sheepish or shy about sending email, it has become a very common and acceptable form of communication between merchants and their customers. As email systems become more sophisticated, email marketers sort and segment email lists, filtering demographically and geographically to reach the exact audience that will yield the highest return. Email is no longer limited to list blasting, ecommerce sites should be sending welcome emails, abandoned cart reminders, post purchase follow up with review request, upsell offers, even birthday and anniversary promotions. When executed correctly, email marketing can be your most powerful communication tool.

Local

Local

We love local; this is the general response we get from every community where we work. Why then, do so many local businesses fail? While every local business has their own unique story, we have learned over the years that the one common denominator in most every success is an extremely hard working business owner. Small business owners, managers and employees work tirelessly to find and hold their niche in the market. However finding long lasting success in a field of strong competitors often requires more than just hard work and dedication. Finding your sweet spot in the community means knowing your market, demographics and competitors. Maintaining your market position means capitalizing on your strengths and capturing customer loyalty. Whatever you do, don’t get caught in the mass marketing nets of local advertising schemers looking to devour your marketing budget with little to no return on your investment.

Social

With social media commanding so much of our attention, it’s hard to believe that using social media to advertise could be complicated or risky. The truth is that it is both, but it doesn’t need to be either. Many brands will naturally flourish in a social environment; fashion for instance can hit their target audience with much less effort and investment than say, a traditional B2B. That doesn’t mean B2B’s should not engage in social media, they just need to invest time and resources in the appropriate social media channels. The first thing any curious social media advertiser should understand is that social media is entertainment, and you need to maintain the entertainment aspect to be successful. People who use social media expect fresh and exciting social media content, and they expect your content to fit perfectly on their mobile devices. Before launching a paid social media advertising campaign, be sure to have the necessary flow of creative and exciting content to support your campaign.

Social
Mobile

Mobile

If you have not yet noticed, people are abandoning their laptops and PC’s and replacing these devices with their smart phones. An almost unthinkable thing just a few years ago has become a reality, and that has created a whole new opportunity for marketers and merchants. Making your website mobile-friendly just isn’t good enough anymore, websites must now be mobile-centric. This includes everything from architecture, to design and even content. With the advent of mobile seeping into almost every aspect of our daily lives, new standards and rules for advertising to customers using mobile content are constantly being updated. Google and Facebook (in many cases) view mobile as the preferred traffic source, with advertising targeting just mobile users. Even digital marketing fundamentals such as email and SEO are now evolving into much different disciplines, each with their own set of guidelines for content distributors looking for their niche customers in this new arena. The future of your online presence is here, and it is decidedly mobile.

Strategy

Strategy is one of the top reasons your competitors succeed, and it’s the number one advantage you have over them. Creating marketing and advertising campaigns, or starting a development project to build a new website all require the proper strategy. Strategy is the preparation before the execution, it helps us to refine our objectives, goals, timelines and budgets. Research and reviewing historical data, setting goals, budgets and expectations are all a necessary part of strategy. Strategy does not need to be granular or take long, sometimes a simple one page document is all that is needed. However, underestimating a campaign or project can result in unexpected costs and delays. Creating your strategy allows us to document your project, essentially creating a blueprint for your project. It helps us to assure that your project or campaign remains inline and on-track, and ultimately meets and exceeds you expectations and goals. You already know what your competitors are doing, the right strategy helps you to out-compete even your fiercest competitors.

Content

Content

Content creation begins with the need to connect to your audience, conveying your brand through various communication methods. Creating content for a project could mean writing an article, a blog post or product descriptions. You may have a campaign that requires images to be used in display ads or social media, or you may need product photography. You may even need a polished and professionally produced video for your website opener, YouTube channel or Instagram campaign. Creative ideas, experience and passion drive the creation of great digital content, and great digital content is what drives the perception of your brand. While content tends to be created only as the need arises, there is a shelf-life for trending content. Content strategies should include content that can be reused in different forms, in fact developing a content library can be priceless. As the adage goes, good content is used once; great content is copied over and over.

Analytics

Hindsight, as everyone knows is 20/20. Some of the costliest mistakes in advertising occur when analytic data is misunderstood, and historical data is overlooked. Knowing where in your sales funnel success or failure has occurred, helps to determine why and even how these occurrences took place. An apt analogy might be: good reporting disseminates the data to find the where, great reporting reconstructs the data to find the why, and comprehensive reporting interprets the where and why to identify the how. Alone this statement may look like marketing gibberish, but for anyone who has ever asked “how did this happen?” this statement should be your ah-ha moment! Thorough reporting gives your team the key information they need, to plan and execute new strategies and campaigns with a higher degree of confidence in the outcome.

Development

Development

Development is the process in which you build a new website or rebuild an existing website. Even adding a new template onto an existing website can be considered a development project, and should be properly planned before any work begins. Development is often an exciting adventure and it’s easy to see why. Having a new or rebuilt website makes your business more competitive, it can also create new opportunities to sell more products or achieve more leads. If you are ready to dive into a new website build or if it’s time to rebuild your exiting website, there a few things you want to know. First, don’t underestimate the amount of time or investment this project will take. Second, know your needs and separate them from your wish list. Third, no project will turn out as good if you are not involved, so be prepared to spend not just money but also time! Follow these rules, and be sure to work with a reputable development company and your new or rebuilt website will be everything you expect.
