In an era when online businesses grow with each passing day, it’s becoming crucially important to not only create a unique service but also to find the right target demographic and reach them; the latter being the most difficult task to grapple with.
This post provides you with some valuable SEO and online marketing tips and strategies to help your business succeed in today’s competitive Internet market.
A number of SEO and emarketing webinars I attended this year, provided me with a unique search engine optimization and online marketing tips for 2012.
Freshness & frequency.
Be sure you produce fresh content regularly. Content updates send a message to search engine spiders to crawl your website and once your website is cached you’ll get organic visits from the search engines. I personally notice a drop in rankings when I do not update the content even for a week.
Bitly.com This is the place where you can shorten your URL. Bitly URL shortening and bookmarking service is very popular on social networks. Short and clear URLs are considered not only search friendly but user-friendly as well. In addition Bitly provides tools to view statistics related to users that click on generated links. Why not use this service if it helps you structure better URLs and measure the results?
When and where to post: Communicating with your customers through social media channels is one of the online marketing tactics you can’t go without. Half of the Americans spend 40 minutes on Facebook and about 35 minutes on Twitter on a daily basis. Why not embrace social media?
These two social websites can serve as channels for your company’s promotional message. However, consider that your social media pages should be appealing and interesting, otherwise you won’t be able to target a quality audience, no matter how regularly you update.
In addition, the recommended time for updating the pages is from 11 AM to 3 PM on Monday or Wednesday. The responses are quick.
Make your visitors return. Turn your new visitors into returning ones. (Increasing the rate of returning visitors is in fact a big deal.) It requires a lot of time and resources. And if you stop updating your website, you’ll notice a drastic decrease in visits and rankings. Note that nothing is more basically important than the consistency of your online marketing campaign, as it’s not easy to make visitors return. So, when doing web analysis, pay a special attention to the number of returning visitors and do hard work to turn your new visitors into returning ones.
Track your campaign. It’s important to track your online marketing campaign to ensure your efforts pay off. Unless you do it, you’ll never be able to discover strong and weak sides of it. Today, I am consistent with my updates and I see that the efforts pay off. I noticed dramatic improvement in visits and the bounce rate (one-page visits) decrease.
Follow the above online marketing tips to make sure your campaign is successful!
