Is Paid Digital Marketing in your future?

Digital Ad CampaignIn our 15 years in business we have seen the ebb and flow of digital marketing from "free" organic placement, to Google MAPS and Google text ads. Google is a publicly traded company and "FREE" does not appeal to stock-holders. So the short answer to the above question is: If you want to grow beyond your word-of-mouth strategy and develop a sustainable business growth model, paid digital marketing is in your future. Don't be afraid of it! If you're ready to scale, digital marketing is a controllable marketing resource that you'll wish you had discovered years ago. So - onward!

Digital marketing goes well beyond paid text ads on Google. The fact is: the most expensive forms of advertising on Google and Facebook are often the easiest to access. Google Text Ads and Facebook posts can be huge money pits and often there are better options to consider.

Website Optimization - Tracking Results And Conversions

A typical first stab at website optimization begins with the simple notion that if I get more traffic I will in turn get more customers. There's nothing wrong with that idea however it only brushes the surface of true website optimization. If your website is already well established, there is one key question that begins the process of website optimization.

How many customers is your current website generating?

Let's say you're getting 500 visits a month to your website.

  • Of those 500 visits, how many picked up the phone?
  • How many submitted a form.
  • How many contacted your business via email?

If you cannot answer these questions with some degree of certainty, then this is where you need to begin.

 

Website Optimization depends upon your ability to measure results

  1. If possible, use a unique trackable phone line published only on your website. 
  2. For the same reason, use a contact email address on your website that is not used for any other purpose.
  3. Use interactive web forms to facilitate questions and requests and capture the contact history over time.
  4. Connect your site to Google Analytics and Google Webmaster tools (or at least your website server stats package).
  5. Consider additional tracking opportunities like reverse IP lookup, heat-maps and visitor recording

Conversion Tracking

Assuming you have at least some of the tracking features above and can reasonably answer the simple question: "How many clients is my website generating?", you are then ready to consider optimization. By the way, you may not be able to answer the question directly. What we're looking for are "conversions". A conversion is simply a desired result. For most small businesses, the desired result is a phone call. Whether or not the final result is an order depends upon the person who answered the call. The website did it's job... it got the prospect on the phone. For an eCommerce site, the conversion is a direct purchase off of the site. The completion of a web form is also a conversion. Other conversions can include things like downloading a whitepaper, clicking to a specific page or site. Basically ANY interaction that you are trying to elicit can be considered a conversion. The key is to be able to track it.

 

Once you have your conversion goals and the ability to track those conversion establish, you can then start the process of optimization.
