Digital marketing is one of the most important things any company can do in 2022. It’s vital that you take the time to create a strategy that works for you and give yourself the tools you’ll need to succeed.
This is a rundown on how to create a winning digital marketing strategy and why it’s so important to start immediately.
Review Your Marketing Past
Before you start marketing, it’s vital that you stop and review what your company has done in the past if it’s done anything. What sites have you advertised on, what was your click-through rate and your conversion rate, and did you make back the money you put into advertising?
If you didn’t take notes the first time you did it, it’s important that you start now. Getting heavy notes and creating a spreadsheet of what has happened with your advertising will make a difference in how you move forward.
Create a Goal
Create a realistic goal for your company to reach by the end of the quarter. Do you want to see a 10% increase in sales? Do you want to bring in enough customers to be able to expand your company?
Although you might not be able to reach this goal, giving yourself something real and tangible to reach for will give you a more clear vision of what your actions are for. If something hurts this goal, you’ll know to avoid it.
Ensure You Utilize SEO
SEO is the most important digital marketing strategy out there. Not only does it help you move your company up the ranks of search results through building links and keyword use, but it also makes your business far more likely to be trusted and recognized when leads stumble across it. SEO shouldn’t be avoided unless you don’t care if your company succeeds.
Advertise In Multiple Areas
When you advertise the first few times, consider setting up campaigns in multiple areas online. This step will allow you to gather as many varied clicks as possible. Use different links, and track them thoroughly. Keep data on how many people are clicking through, how many of those are purchasing, and which sites are giving you the most activity.
Side note: If you need to spread the word about your property in the Grand Canyon state, make use of Showcase IDX’s ARMLS (Arizona Regional Multiple Listing Service) service.
Review and Repeat
When you’ve reached the time, you set for your goal to be reached: stop and review. Not every goal will be reached, and not every advertising campaign will work out. Look at the numbers you get from these campaigns, and plan your next steps against them. Continue to link-build, build your SEO, and work to create good word-of-mouth advertising and reviews so that your company is seen as a good resource.
Repeat this process as many times as you need, giving yourself at least three months for each advertising style until you find what works best for your company. You can skip a lot of this by working directly with an SEO company, but the plan is up to you.
There’s No Company That Can’t Succeed
Given the right marketing strategy and a little luck, every company can find success online. Consider following these steps, and create a program that will help your business win.
