If you’re visible at all online, no doubt you’re using a few online marketing tactics to put your offer in front of your target audience. You may be implementing organic SEO strategies, content marketing, participating in forums, even engaging in social media marketing. What else can you do to increase your visibility online and climb higher up the ladder to success?
Here are 5 tips that will help you diversify your online marketing
Combine paid search advertising with your SEO strategies. While it is essential that you rank organically for your key terms, paid search engine advertising can dramatically increase targeted traffic to your site, resulting in increased sales and leads.
Take advantage of mobile marketing. Today, more than 100 million people in the United States use Smartphones! This means huge potential for you, particularly locally. It is believed that about 80% of the searches that people conduct on their Smartphones and other mobile devices are in an effort to find products and services locally. Why not reach out to these potential customers?
Have you set up a business profile on Google+? Hopefully you’re already tuned in to Facebook and Twitter, but putting up a profile on Google+ allows you to further share your ideas, content and knowledge. Optimize your posts, and enjoy added exposure.
Put your product/service in front of 17.8 million visitors on Pinterest. This social networking site has grown exponentially in a very short time. In fact, its design and accessibility has made it the 3rd most popular social media site in the United States today – some even call it addictive.
Make yourself a star on YouTube. Videos are highly popular today, and a great way to put your business in front of people who need your product/service. Because YouTube is a Google product, videos tend to rank highly in search engine results. Every day, more than 4 billion videos are being viewed on YouTube! What might you be missing out on?
All of these marketing tactics may not apply to your particular business; it is essential that you know your target audience in order to know what will be effective in your situation. When it comes to marketing your business online, think “outside the box!”
