Online Marketing Webinar: How to Market Your Business Online

I’m delighted to invite you to the first in a series of online marketing webinars designed to help you to grow your business using digital marketing.

With digital marketing, you can target the audience more effectively, reach a wider demographic, and track the results of your online marketing efforts. So, how can online marketing help your business? We’ll explore the various ways in which you can benefit from digital marketing, including:

Reach A Larger Audience

To begin with, online marketing allows you to target a far wider audience than would typically turn up to one of your physical stores. The digital landscape is vast, with billions of people actively using the internet to research products and services, as well as to socialize, consume content, and shop.

If you’re not online, you’re not reaching these people. Luckily, the digital world is a largely digital one, and you have countless digital touchpoints – including websites, retail stores, emails, and mobile phones – through which you can disseminate your message and gain access to this audience.

Increase Brand Awareness

A major advantage of digital marketing is that you can gauge the effectiveness of your efforts and determine the return on investment (ROI). This is vital because there’s no point in investing heavily in digital marketing if you don’t know how to measure the results!

By analyzing the behavior of your website visitors, social media followers, and email subscribers, you can easily identify how many people are becoming aware of your brand and whether or not your online marketing efforts are proving successful. This way, you can adjust and develop your strategy accordingly.

Drive Product Purchases

One of the primary intentions of the internet and social media is to drive potential customers to online or offline retail stores. This is particularly beneficial for small businesses, as it offers the opportunity to target an audience that would otherwise never come into contact with your brand.

If you sell products online, you can use digital marketing to drive traffic to your store. You can also use social media to encourage your customers to engage with you and your brand, and you can use SEO to increase the chances of specific keywords relating to your products turning up in online searches. As you’d expect, digital marketing tactics such as SEO and PPC (pay-per-click) ads can also increase your brand’s awareness, potentially driving prospective customers to your store.

Grow Your Email List

Apart from driving traffic to your retail store, you can also use digital marketing to grow your email list. As a business owner, marketer, or enthusiast, you’re bound to have heard of email marketing, and with good reason: it’s one of the most effective and efficient ways of keeping in touch with customers, encouraging them to visit your website, and converting them into paying customers. Email marketing allows you to keep your brand front and center, and provide consistent messaging, while also allowing you to target the right audience with content that’s relevant to them.

One of the most effective email marketing campaigns I’ve ever seen utilized a combination of digital marketing and email marketing to gain almost 15,000 free email subscribers in just three months. With that kind of traction, you can bet that they’ll be hearing from you soon!

Grow Your Blog Traffic

Last but not least, we have blog traffic, which, as the name implies, is the amount of people that visit and/or subscribe to your blog. Blog traffic can be generated via various platforms and SEO approaches, but none of them can provide you with quite the same level of data and analysis that digital marketing can.

If you’ve been operating a retail store for some time and have amassed a sizable audience, you can utilize your blog to further promote your brand. Aside from increasing your brand’s popularity amongst your customers, this is also a great way to build credibility amongst potential new customers. When someone from Forbes, Inc. stops by your blog to review your product or service, you can be sure that they’ll be doing so because of your authoritative voice as a brand.

To put it briefly, with digital marketing, you can target a specific audience, find out who that audience is, and analyze the results of your efforts. This makes all the difference in the world, especially if you’re looking for an effective way to grow your business.
