According to the Chinese calendar, 2014 is the year of the horse. But in the online marketing world, it just might become known as the year of the video.
Have you noticed lately that when you do regular Google searches, that you get links to YouTube videos in your search results as well? These are SEO videos and they are a great way to boost your local online marketing. Many people who are researching companies online would prefer to watch a brief video than read through a website. If you have an SEO video in addition to your SEO website, it gives potential customers the choice of how they would like to research your company. More importantly for you, it means that you will capture a wider audience.
Strategic Social Media
Social media works differently than traditional media because, well … it’s social. It demands two-way interaction. And, not only is social media unique from traditional media, but the various social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest etc. all work differently from each other and appeal to different types of audiences.
A strategic approach must be taken with social media and it should be integrated with other online marketing tools in order to engage your fans and followers.
Being a Fan has its Privileges
More and more, companies are offering incentives for people to become fans and followers of their social media accounts. Incentives may include contests that only fans can enter, exclusive discount codes, videos and more.
This particular online marketing solution works especially well for businesses in the retail and restaurant industries.
You’ve Got To Be Mobile
It is estimated that about 40% of the time that people spend online is now through mobile devices. And that number is increasing! If you’re doing a re-design of your website, making it mobile friendly is a must.
Include Your Offline Marketing in Your Online Marketing
Your traditional marketing can also be work in tandem with your online marketing. In addition to including your website on your business cards or brochures, think about adding your twitter handle as well.
For some businesses, it may even make sense to include hashtags in written material and even on signs or product packaging.
Remember that when you are building your online marketing strategy, it should not be a one size fits all approach. After all, each business is unique and has its own goals and objectives. At Nova Solutions, we will recommend the online marketing solutions that we think will work best for you and your business.
