Why YouTube Should Play a Role in Your Online Advertising Strategy

Monday, September 24th, 2012

Online advertising plays a key role in the success of any modern business. At the cutting edge, internet marketing experts employ viral marketing techniques through social media to create instant buzz for brands, establish an online identity, and secure customers. One of the most important marketing methods to further this cause is Video Marketing. However, not all video is created equal. While many video sharing websites exist and many have similar features, only one carries a tremendous user base that will contribute to increased visibility for your products and services.

 

YouTube, when used for the promotion of a business, provides the perfect platform for the interactive advertising via social media and the web. YouTube is the 2nd most visited website in the world. Every month, over 4 billion hours of video are watched on YouTube and it receives over 1 trillion page views per year.

When used correctly, YouTube becomes an excellent resource to target potential customers.

Typically, online marketers have a variety of different types of videos they use for promotion which include product demonstrations, customer testimonials, virtual tours, how to, and support videos.

 

 

However, creating an impressive video and uploading it to YouTube is not enough for success. In order to drive traffic, increase visibility, and see increased sales you need to attract viewers to your videos.

The Top 20 Web Marketing Concepts Your Next Website Design Company Should Know

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

Marketing strategy is hands down the most important area of focus for any business. Owning a business and working on one’s own terms is a common dream shared by many, but creating a constant funnel of potential customers and converting them to real customer is not an easy task. Failure to bring on new business is the single most common reason why most companies fail. If you want to be a business owner and enjoy all the freedoms of working for yourself, you must bring on sales and you must first master marketing strategy.

 

All that glitters is not gold! The intelligent use of your marketing budget is what separates success from failure, and online marketing one of the most effective ways to get noticed by a large pool of potential customers. The key component of every single marketing campaign, whether on or offline, is the company website because that’s where most customers go to evaluate a company and make the final decision to buy. Having the right website design and web marketing strategy in place is critical, so it’s important to hire the right website company to help.

 

An expert in web design and online marketing will know the importance of the topics listed in this article. If you are looking for a company that can help you build a great website and effective internet marketing strategy, find out how knowledgeable they are with the following concepts:

 

Twenty Important Website Marketing Concepts

 

Go down the list one by one, asking your next potential website design company to explain how they can help build your website with each term in mind. Listen carefully to their response. While some companies are good at knowing a lot about very little and will try to bluff their way through the conversation, the right company will have more than just a quick one-line response. They will be able to describe to you at length the pros and cons of each term and how that aspect of web marketing applies to your specific website marketing strategy and goals.

 

Why is all of this important? Remember, the marketing success of your business depends in large part on the web marketing qualities of your website. An expert web company can design a brilliant website without compromising search engine friendliness.

 

Creating a buzz around your brand, getting your website found by potential new customers, and encouraging people to buy is a tough task. It requires a detailed knowledge of web design best practices, market research, internet marketing, website optimization techniques, and social media promotion. Hiring the wrong company to handle your next website project could result in failure and wasted budget. Hiring the right web design and internet marketing company will result in a website that consumes less of your time and money overall, provides fantastic lead generation for your business, and avoids the need to do the entire website project over again because the first company missed the mark.

2012 is the Year of Opportunity for Your Business

Monday, January 9th, 2012

Chart Your Business Course for 2012: Check the Economic Trends and
Select Your Next Internet Marketing Move

 

Good news on the economic horizon means opportunities for small businesses to ride a prosperous wave in 2012. Review these recent reports and then consider whether (and how) you should adjust your Internet marketing presence.

 

2012 Business Trends at a Glance: Curving Upward

 

Jobs – Up: Available jobs are increasing, especially in Arizona. Lee McPheters, director of the JPMorgan Chase Economic Outlook Center at Arizona State University, reported Arizona moved from No. 49 among the states for job creation in 2010 all the way up to a top 10 growth state in 2011. Nationwide, the hiring outlook overall for 2012 remains cautiously optimistic, with small business hiring notably expected to increase, according to CareerBuilder 2012 Hiring Forecast. The ABC News 2012 US Economy Forecast cited CEO Brian Hamilton of financial information firm Sageworks, who said, “The jobs numbers are getting better,” and Kiplinger agrees that job creation is picking up.

 

Retail Sales – Up: Not only were holiday retails strong in 2011, according to USA Today, but overall retail sales rose 4.5% year-over-year in 2011, according to the International Council of Shopping Centers and Goldman Sachs Retail Chain Store Sales Index (cited by CNN Money). For small businesses and especially those using refined Internet selling strategies, the news was very good. As Internet Retailer reported, the online holiday shopping season generated at least $35 billion in sales for web retailers according to comScore Inc. Many smaller niche web merchants also closed out the online Christmas shopping season with a nice boost to their fourth quarter sales by making constant updates to their marketing and merchandising plans. Internet businesses gained ground by concentrating on their best customers, using social media and offering highly targeted incentives.

 

Economists – Favorable: Arizona’s economic indicators have been improving, according to the University of Arizona – Arizona Economic Outlook 2012-13. The state’s personal income, wages, and employment are growing at increasingly faster rates. Spending is robust while unemployment, bankruptcies and residential foreclosures are happily declining. Nationally, the 2012 Goldman Sachs white paper, The Outlook for the US Economy, reports household debt burdens have continued to improve. Inflation is not expected to significantly increase. As USA Today reported, holiday retail sales strength, steady manufacturing performance steady and housing market resurgence all point to sustained corporate profitability in the coming year.

 

Business Metrics – Up: Kiplinger estimates the U.S. economy will grow about 2.3% in 2012, a bit faster than the 1.8% pace in 2011, and businesses appear willing to invest in new equipment to expand production after several years of slowed production. A Reuters report observed manufacturing grew at its fastest pace in six months in December, capping a late-year upswing, and a rise in new orders for manufactured goods suggested momentum going into 2012. Another report showed U.S. construction spending neared an 18-month high in November.

 

Consumers – Polling Optimistic: An Associated Press poll result suggests 62% of Americans are optimistic about the economy in coming year, while 78% are hopeful about the year their family will have in 2012. The public’s expectations for this year’s economy reached their highest point since last spring.

 

What Is Your Internet Marketing Agenda in 2012?

Being first to spot an oncoming tide is vital both to boaters and to business owners. Given these economic climate trends, now is the time for small business owners to re-evaluate and re-energize their online marketing campaign. Over the next four weeks, we’ll give you insights and tips for creating websites, SEO/SEM strategies, social media campaigns, and other tools to build your Internet marketing presence and success.

 

1. If you don’t have a website, now is the time to get one. Truly, if you don’t have a viable website, then you are almost certainly missing tremendous business opportunities. If your website has not been redesigned in over three years, it might as well be an old phone book: outdated and not terribly practical. Rather than rush into new marketing channels, it makes sense to build a website that helps establish your brand and reputation while it produces leads and sales. With more online customers out there, you can’t afford to ignore them.

 

2. If you do have a website but don’t show up near the top of the search results page, now is the time to invest in strategic Internet marketing. More than just techie buzz words, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Search Engine Marketing (SEM) help propel you to the all-important top spots in relevant searches for your products and services. What strategies will make the biggest impact on lead generation for your business? Pay per click advertising via search engine marketing (SEM) and search engine optimization (SEO) can be the most effective forms of marketing activities for your business in 2012.

 

Staying on top of the latest trends is not an easy task. While you focus on the day to day operations of your business, hiring the right SEO and internet marketing company can save you time, money, and increase the bottom line. Google is making more changes to their system in 2012. New website analytics are coming as well. Hiring experts to help update your website design and SEO will keep your business in front of potential customers under the current Google system and continuing as Google evolves.

 

At the same time, consumer Internet use patterns and preferences are favoring social media as well. Webmarketing’s report also showed 55% of companies closed deals from social media leads, and social media is expected to see the biggest increase in investment moving into 2012 as it impacts all facets of marketing strategy.

 

3. If you don’t have an ongoing relationship with your clients, now is the time to establish social media and email campaigns. Social media helps develop interlocking communities, building relationships with site owners, publishers, and bloggers, which in turn bring new link opportunities for SEO. The landscape is diverse, with many areas to focus on including Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Google+, and LinkedIn. A competent internet marketing firm with the experience to help tie all of these social networks together with your overall SEO and SEM plan will position your business for future success.

 

Experts agree that tapping into social media empowers small businesses with limited budgets (or low cost items) to market to a receptive audience and even create brand recognition and trust. Michael Brito of Social Business News suggests focusing “on building trust with the community first, then figuring out how to monetize (or get a lead).” A company with the right social media strategy can reach and out to customers like never before.

 

4. If you have some Internet marketing pieces but not all, it may be time to compliment what you’re doing with video marketing, PR campaigns, blogging and quality content. Which of these Internet features make sense for your business? Hiring the right internet marketing firm that has a solid understanding of what’s out there and how it can best help your business is key. The companies with the best internet marketing strategies, using the most cost effective marketing techniques that are custom to their business model will outpace the field by generating and converting more leads than the competition.

Web design tips for women focused product and services websites

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

Being a woman myself, I know the importance of making your business website ‘just right’ when it comes time to market women only services.  Imagine that you own a fashion products business with women are your prime customers. What types of subtle and not so subtle design elements should be included to appeal to your target customer? This consideration must begin at the very early stages of design, and carry itself throughout the entire project in order to reach maximum conversion rates.

Some key elements will matter more to a site targeted at women and must be kept in mind: Attractiveness, content friendly, understandable, eye catching, and customer focused. Women are not a fan of boring websites, and the quickest way to turn them off is to produce a bland or boring look. Web pages that represent social aspects, including pictures of other women using and enjoying your products, will add a lot of value to your project.

My experience thus far with website design and online marketing has taught me of one sure-fire way to impress female customers: video marketing. The use of compelling and relevant videos on your website will do wonders for building word of mouth marketing amongst your clientele. Video marketing and media linking is just another tool in the SEO toolbox, with value that goes far beyond page rank. Marketing to women using video is especially important because women like to see body language and expressions. That level of business to client interaction is impossible when using static images alone.

Decision making processes with women are, of course, very different from men. Color schemes, styles, images and videos are processed differently in the female mind. It is important to hire a web design firm that understands these subtle differences when developing websites for gender specific products. Everything from the inclusion of emotional elements to Social Networking geared towards relationship forming can be on the table and open for discussion. The modern website has become a wonderful source for word of mouth opportunities. Provide a home for women on your website and you will find that they’ve started to recommend your website to other women, all on their own.

For intelligent websites that marketing products and services effectively, based on the needs of your business, visit seenBEST Web Design. We are your best solution when you want the best website and you need it to be seen.
