digital marketing funnels

In addition to developing complete business website design and development projects the core of that which we here at Capid Houser deliver is our Full Service Digital Marketing Agency provision that in essence is made up of essentially taking a company’s top level core go to marketing business development strategy and; translating components of it into the digital marketing domain. The result of this translation of business plans is actually seen on the internet in the form of two main components [as we define marketing a business on the internet] which is that of Social Media and that of Search Engine Marketing.

In terms of Search Engine Marketing and the way that this links into a company’s strategy; for the purpose of this discussion this can be described by the fact that the vast majority of product and service research activities commence with consumers pulling up their favourite search engine and simply typing in whatever terms come up in their head in relation to that which they may be looking to purchase, hire or just simply to get more information on.

We mention the above due to the fact that the core of our search engine marketing agency execution practices is that of keyword research which links directly into the activities of the consumers as described above. Our performance of top level keyword research provides us with the foundation of that which we will make use of in order to develop content that we will publish on the internet.

This particular content that will be published will be based on the keyword database that we will compile, in summary – there will be links within the content – note that the content comes in various forms such as press releases, articles, blog posts, micro blogging, videos, emails, PDFs etc etc.

With that said – note that in terms of ranking a company’s website [the process to ensure that a website {or it is best to say specific pages on a company website} comes up in the search engines after a consumer types in a keyword phrase into the search engines] – it is the [company or product / service specific] content that is published around the internet on other platforms and websites all emanating from varying IP addresses etc etc, with the links within the content pointing back to the company website that will all culminate in working towards the ranking of the website.

Social media marketing research can be used for business development in terms of digital marketing strategy development as the company in question can be seen …

… to be leading discussions, their goods and services along with the excellent customer service that is provided will [we hope] be shared around the various social media networks. All serving to broaden the scope of the organisation and to increase that which we call Brand Equity.

At the outset – our Full Service Digital Marketing Agency research will provide us with a foundation bed that we will be able to use in order to shape the organisation’s social media activity. Then we will be able to develop activities [just as we do with search engine marketing] that will culminate in customers arriving at our main business website or other location on the internet that will present the consumer with more details or further information in relation to the product or service that they showed interest in via social media or due to the specific keyword that was typed into a favourite portal.

The above has been constructed to set the scenario as to how the consumer arrives at the top of the digital marketing funnel. As there is so much talk about Business Funnel Models in general and specifically how this relates to marketing a business on the internet. The Digital Marketing Sales Funnel that we develop will of course be specific to our client’s business model as well as their target market client’s profile. As an example certain businesses require longer sales cycles so that it may take say six months from the initial touch point with the prospect before they end up becoming a paying client.

In other cases the sales cycle [or length of the buying process] may be days or even hours and therefore the social media search engine marketing funnel will be designed accordingly. The point being made is to put the appropriate facilities in place to ensure the prospect is never let go of in terms of constant communication until a decision is made either way in terms of them [the client] making a purchase decision or staying on potential purchase list as the top level strategy dictates.

So – in order to use the analogy of making sure that the client comes back into the physical [shoe, computer, clothes, jewellery or maybe food] store time and time again – when using business internet marketing part of the implementation of a high quality business digital marketing funnel will serve to put the marketing message in front of the client at set times in order to nudge them closer to making a decision.

Certain decision making criteria are put in place within the design process and for each decision made by the prospect – they can readily be defined as moving to specific levels within the digital marketing funnel. As a general rule of thumb – the top of the funnel is wide and therefore we have a larger pool of prospects at this level. As customers move further down the business funnel – there is of course less space and this correlates to less customers being found at lower levels within the funnel.

Again – in general terms we will see a rise in fees being paid by clients with fewer and fewer numbers of clients being found at the bottom of the business funnel and corresponding higher prices being paid. In some cases this may run into many 1000s of £s/$s and a set amount of clients may be targeted to purchase certain solutions at set prices within set periods of times [say 10 high ticket sales every month].

In coming to the end of this discussion – it is worth mentioning some of the [more technical] tools that we make use of in order to effectively implement a business digital internet marketing funnel. We feel a quality email [autoresponder] marketing platform is necessary  – as example – we often provide prospects with the option to download certain expert information packs in exchange for their email address. The type and form of the content of the information will be carefully designed to act as a decision point serving to act to say “if the prospect opts to download the said information they are candidates to move to the next level within the business process funnel”.

Another tools that we make use of is that of artificial intelligence based chatbot marketing in order to interact with the clients so that we can learn as much as possible about the prospect before we either speak to them in the phone [often necessary for high ticket sales] or they opt to become a paying customer.

So – it can be said that the implementation of a digital business internet marketing funnel serves to mimic the activities of that which takes place in the non computer business interaction world. So – without an effective digital marketing process in place – companies will not be getting as much out of their online presence as they otherwise would with one in place.

Many company’s, business owners and marketing departments that have a presence on Facebook do not have the pixel installed on their website [we know this to be true because we use this as part of our analysis to find Facebook Marketing Clients]. Many companies may just not be aware of the pixel and of how to actually set it up. If some are aware they may not thing it is worth the hassle to learn all that needs to be learnt in order to get it installed and working in order to use Facebook Marketing Agency Strategies within their business operations.

However, smart business owners and expert marketers and advertisers know that if you want to truly succeed with Facebook Ads, then you need the Facebook pixel to be installed whether they set it up themselves or whether they choose to work with a third party company.

Facebook’s pixel installation on a company website is a key component when it comes to answering the question “How to use Facebook for business marketing”; note that the pixel installation is free and if the business is not technically inclined, a social media and search engine marketing agency such as Capid Houser can always install the code for any business they work with. The installation will be included within the Digital Marketing Makeover program.

To continue the discussion here is just but one reason why companies will get best out of their go to marketing social media marketing and advertising plans to give justification as to why organisations all over the world are engaging in strategic social media and facebook marketing for lead generation, brand build and revenue generation that stems from sales of products and services.

With the Facebook platform there is an audience targeting tool which when used in sync with a top level business strategy will prove to be extremely useful as it enables companies to really focus in on the type of customer that they target with ads, the targeting will all be based on various factors such as customer’s location, their age, gender, interests, hobbies, and so much more.

Now with the use of the pixel, and bear in mind that this is not used in isolation but it is used in direction relation to the company’s top level business development strategy and therefore allow companies to take customer targeting to the next level. Companies are now able to target [as we do as a part of the Digital Marketing Makeover program] who have previously visited the company website, so marketers know that they are writing marketing messages for those who have already experienced the company in some way as they have already visited specific pages on the company website.

With the widepsread use of the internet that has been seen to seemingly come into contact with [almost] all areas of our lives; it is interesting to see how there has been a shift in marketing strategy development in general that is towards the increasing amount of important that is being placed upon that of marketing and advertising to that of connecting with existing clients and generating leads using the digital realm – in other words using digital marketing strategy development as a key component in the top level business strategy of the business or organisation in question, now even within the digital marketing aspect of business development there have been changes when it comes to …

It is important to note that the reference to the terms above are that which we describe as Digital Marketing Sub Channels. With that said; it is indeed interesting to see how there has been a shift in marketing and advertising to that of connecting with clients using [some of] the Digital Marketing Sub Channels. In viewing them as seperate entities [Marketing Channels] as we do here at Capid Houser allows us to more effectively effect the promotion of products and services to end user clients that have been identified and classified by the business in question or following our preliminary research as a key component of the Digital Marketing Makeover process.

We at Capid Houser offer services within the above digital marketing channels and in recent months we have been putting more efforts into getting clients moving with the social media marketing agency as there are so many ‘dead facebook business pages out there that in fact are not serving any real purpose in terms of getting more clients through the door for their respective companies and; generating additional revenues.

When we speak of Digital marketing in terms of Business Strategy Development it is of course but one aspect of what we call Channel Marketing or put another way; one path that a company uses to actually get into contact with the end user customer, as mentioned above we refer to this as a Digital Marketing Sub Channel and the most appropriate sub channel to use will only be determined after we have gone through the marketing segmentation exercise in order to get really clear when it comes to the “Who” we are marketing our products and services to.

There are various parameters that we can use in order to execute the market segmentation of our customers and when it comes to the Digital Marketing Sub Channels that we are able to make use of to connect with clients there are of course many but for arguments sake here are but a few …

It stands to reason that if their are so many people congregated in one place, all giving their opinions and buying preferences then this is actually a goldmine for businesses to connect with their prospective clients.
