Remember Bruce Springsteen’s song, “57 Channels (And Nothin’ On)?” Obviously referring to television, many cynics argue that the Internet now faces a similar problem: too much content, yet too little substance. But if you work in online business and want your web site to avoid being seen as one of the “empty” ones, there are still options via your web site marketing.
When it comes to search engine and web site marketing practices, you have to take charge of your marketing efforts. This involves taking into consideration what appeals to the public while still generating profits. There are images, words, and costs involved, and each requires your input.
Success in online business, more than any other business medium, often requires creativity and analysis. By being creative, your ideas and research can generate new ways to profit.
Many online business specialists recommend a customer-centric marketing approach. If you are building a great web site and are attempting to create new web site marketing or pay-per-click ads, thinking from the client’s point of view is a worthwhile perspective. What do they want to see online? What would grab their attention? What search marketing designs, styles, and applications would be most popular? What current online marketing practices would be most effective? As time passes, you will get a better sense of what marketing channels will be most appealing to your clients.
Perhaps even more important is that this customer-centric approach will also let you make improvements to your business. The focus on customers will help you create search engine marketing materials with more effective language and graphics that appeal to clients and are placed correctly. Also, by testing new online marketing materials, you can find and remove the ads and other related online marketing material that simply isn’t working which also creates opportunities to test new content.
However, sometimes it’s still the old ways that are best. Spreadsheets and proper bookkeeping can also help you make sense of which online business channels would work best for your business. Whether it’s reviving the old “SEO vs. SEM” debate or determining how much you’re really spending on search engine marketing, having access to your company’s numbers will give you a clearer picture of your marketing options.
In fact, to save even more money, it might be worthwhile to get a digital program that can analyze your search marketing costs and let you see your data up front. Business analytics software can show you how well you’re doing and where you can better apply the strengths of your search and digital marketing.
These new marketing options can be tough to implement, but they will help you do what’s necessary to ensure your online business stands out by having the one thing so many current web sites don’t: substance.
