It is only after we have an in depth understanding of the more ‘standard or some say ‘offline business and marketing strategy that we can then begin the process of translating this to using the various tools of the internet to execute the marketing, promotion and advertising of the company.
Often we are in the business of promoting a business, its brand, website, products and services using digital marketing to accomplish our tasks. Some of the main tools we use for this are that of …
- Search Engine Optimization
- Social Media Marketing
- Reputation Management Marketing.
It is important to note that there really is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to a business when we begin the SEO process. For example before we implement we have to go through a detailed Keyword Research Process so that we can determine the searching patterns of clients & competitive websites in order to determine how we can go about creating relevant content that is the core of the ranking of a business website.
Often the complexity of a SEO campaign is not appreciate as there are many websites out there on the internet advertising say a $1000 / month SEO package, this can be purchased by any business. We do not adopt this approach as a small business looking for internet exposure in say a local town will require a different approach to a company looking for national or even international exposure. It will normally take longer for us to achieve rankings for the latter given the competition will be stronger, it is never ‘easy to rank a local company and keep them in their position in the Search Engine Ranking Positions and will require different approaches and resources than for a more competitive market.
As mentioned above we in most cases use the tools of Search Engine Optimization, Social Media Marketing & Reputation Management Marketing however, the degree to which we use each will vary depending on the market industry and the competition. It should be noted that all of the above contributes to internet exposure for a business as users are congregated on Social Media [used for Social Media Marketing] as well as on the various review sites [used for Reputation Management Marketing] so they can be communicated with their. The activities on these portals also do contribute to the ranking in the search engines however the SEO process itself is largely responsible for the rankings in Google, Yahoo & Bing and for say a given monthly fee of say £5000 we could put more resources into SEO in the first months and then reallocate resource into the other two as results start to appear.
The point to make is that just as companies take months and sometimes years to develop a coherent marketing strategy to deliver products and services via a defined marketing channel to connect with specific target market segments. Developing a Digital Marketing Strategy takes time and to do it right we need to use a consultative approach when working with your business.
