Clearly the world of technology, the online marketing phenomena is having a significant impact on how we behave socially; act as consumers and how we do business so it could be fair to say that any business that does not adapt to the new era of marketing and communications is in danger of losing out. We highlight some avenues that digital marketing will benefit any company that implements it.
1. Reduce cost
Your business can develop its online marketing strategy for very little cost and can potentially replace costly advertising channels such as print, television, radio and other outdoor media. Even Google which is the de facto advertising medium is getting way too expensive and hence companies are trying to cut their SEM advertising cost by branching out or stopping. 0One good way is to look at digital to reach a wider audience at a lower cost.
2. Simple to measure
You can see in real time what is or is not working for your business online and you can adapt very quickly to improve your results. For measuring traffic to your site, you can use Google Analytics to measure specific metrics you want to achieve for your website or blog. Even for email or online marketing, they provide good insight into how many people are opening, reading and converting from your emails and marketing strategies.
3. Greater client appeal
The digital platform has the benefit of being attractive to customers in results and the easy usage that can be brought by it. It is easy to deploy, measure, and track. It also is the best way in this digital age which appeals to clients and companies alike. Online marketing gives a range of options to promote their business to the market in a quick and succinct manner depending on their budget. It is faster also to assess what works and what doesn’t as compared to traditional marketing.
4. Brand Development
Digital marketing boosts your brand’s image in a plethora of ways. A well maintained and coded website with quality content targeting the client’s needs and adding value to your target audience can provide significant value and lead generation opportunities. A proper strategy must be implemented. Just driving traffic does your website or Brand no good if the final outcome of the marketing campaign is not thought out properly. 90% of Singapore companies do run traffic campaigns on social and search without understanding what they want to establish. The same can be said for utilizing social media channels and personalized email marketing. There are other mediums in digital as well to reach and convey the right message your target audience is waiting for.
5. Greater engagement
With digital marketing you can encourage your prospects, clients and followers to take action, visit your website, read about your products and services, rate them, buy them and provide feedback which will help propel your business to the next stage of evolution. So it doesn’t take long for good publicity to enhance the prospects of your business. It is always important to keep yourself in touch with your customers and digital does it faster than most mediums. Many companies use Facebook to provide support to their clients in a rather prompt fashion engendering trust and goodwill which will then translate to more sales and increase faith in the Brand. Greater engagement always construes to positive customer satisfaction. And that means only one thing… more sales!
So utilize these pointers for your digital campaign to get more clients, increase customer satisfaction as well as boost your Brand Image.
