SEO

SEO or search engine optimization, although you can pay for it, it focuses on building organic traffic, which means traffic that is not being paid for. The first step to this is quality content, which will increase customer interaction. To give the customer a good experience with this, the website must be smooth, fast, and also incorporate technical and creative elements. Examples of this are using real images and same color code to keep things up to speed, using links or keywords to increase interaction, or focus on social media presence to boost website traffic. Search engine optimization is taken into great consideration when designing content and websites in marketing.

Filmmaking and Photography

With apps like YouTube, Instagram, Vimeo, and VSCO, filmmaking and photography has become a very effective way to market a company’s product. Creating interesting content in these spaces is key when getting customers interested in their product. Video and image makes consumers more likely to click because it evokes emotion. Also, consumer’s attention span is short which means they are not always so willing to read. Therefore, providing image and video creates an advantage. This space can help boost SEO and organic traffic because of the many platforms and versatility of the space.

 

analyzing data

Data Analytics

More and more money is being spent on big data. With the increase in technology, the amount of data accessible is growing exponentially, and it is becoming easier for us to understand it. Data analytics is becoming one of the biggest influencers in companies, whether it’s creating business strategy, or improving operations, it can be utilized in all areas. Companies use the power of data to drive their social media platforms and provide them with valuable insights. These insights allow businesses to niche down on their target audience so they spend money on advertising that’s most likely to result in sales.

However, look out for ads that appear to be doing well and making you money! Why? Mainly because social media platforms cannot show you how those numbers are affecting the overall bottom line of your business. For example, if you make a lot of sales online, are you considering the refunds and chargebacks– how will that affect your account? Learn more about how to manage your marketing spend here.

Bottom line, you need to implement digital marketing in order for your brand to gain exposure and your business to last. Focusing on the newest ways to reach your ideal customer is important, but you also need a strategy on how you will interact with them once you get there. Building your brand by providing value to your target audience through content that creates a want and desire for your product or service is key!
