Creating high-quality content is important for any digital marketing strategy. Blogging is one way to create quality content for a site and expand your content marketing strategy. This key aspect of the strategy performs some critical functions, including bringing more traffic to your website, reinforcing social media presence, positioning against other companies, and ranking all those long-tail search queries and keywords.
If you have a regularly updated blog that the visitors find useful, it means that your website will be easily found through the search engines and can be used as a platform for your marketing campaign.
Analyse the digital assets and channels that you are already using, including website, blog content, social media account, word-of-mouth, native advertising, Google Adwords, paid advertising, and so on. Ask yourself: how effective were they and how can they be used next year?
It is okay if your future digital marketing strategy process does not incorporate all of these elements, but it sure should use those that were the most effective in the previous year. For example, if a landing page you recently created has been effective in generating leads, use it again but improve it as much as possible. The same applies to other assets and channels.
Marketing automation is huge, and it’s only getting better with new technology and software. Today’s leading marketing automation platforms can do wonders for your digital marketing strategy, making it easy for you to automate activities such as content marketing, email marketing, lead generation, and more. Plus, it’s easy to find marketing automation platforms that are integrated with your company’s sales CRM, which improves the entire sales process.
If your company is still not on board with automated lead generation, make sure you add it to your strategy this year.
It’s a mobile-first era, and there’s no excuse for not improving your site for a wonderful mobile experience. Mobile optimisation includes page speed, site design, and various other search engine optimisation practices to ensure that people who come to your site using a mobile device have a good experience.
Review your mobile responsive design and email templates to ensure that you are using the latest methods and provide only relevant and latest data.
Online business is all about connecting with potential customers, so traffic on your website should be high to ensure positive outcomes. Your digital marketing strategy therefore should ensure that your leads and visitors are not exerting unnecessary effort to connect with you. Engaging with your customers is invaluable for your business.
To eliminate the unnecessary effort, you should ensure that landing pages do not ask for irrelevant data. Make call-to-actions clearly visible on the landing page and other pages on the website.
A marketing effort is wasted if an ineffective or inappropriate technology is used.
For a proper digital marketing strategy, you’ll need tools such as marketing automation software as well as industry tools. There are tools that can help you during every stage of the digital marketing process, including tools that help you identify your goals to tools that help you track where your visitors are coming from.
If your company is not different from your competitors, you should not expect high profits. Make sure you change (or reinforce) your difference from the others by talking to your customers and asking them why they selected your company. Every company has a unique selling proposition, an attribute that sets you apart from the competition. Do the research and work to find out what that is. Then, fix your existing differentiators if needed. Incorporate this message into your content marketing campaigns.
