When you use online marketing for your business, there’s a lot to do.
One frightening thing about online marketing is that, because it involves sitting in front of a computer all day, it’s easy to convince yourself that you’ve actually achieved something when in fact you haven’t.
It gets worse! Online marketing uses technology. This is scary enough all on it’s own. Combine technology with marketing for something truly terrifying (all you want to do is run your business, right?).
Here’s a happy thought for you. The best online marketing techniques are based squarely on what works offline. You don’t need to reinvent any wheels, you just need to keep your eye on the ball.
Here’s an example: Website pages and pay per click (PPC) adverts come in all shapes, sizes and abilities. Those that work use the same basic formula as that used by print adverts and sales letters going back over 100 years: Attract attention; prick interest; create desire; tell the reader what to do next with a “call to action“.
With online marketing it’s easy to follow the latest fad. With assisted marketing it’s easier to follow the latest lead. You’d be surprised how often the latest fad isn’t combined with tried and tested marketing know how. You might be more surprised with the results you can achieve when you combine the two successfully.
