Online or Traditional Marketing Strategies – What’s Best For Your Business?
Marketing products and/or services is not new. However, with the growth of technology and the use of the internet, marketing strategies are changing and are very different than the old traditional ways. Whether or not you like the changes, the reality is that you must keep up with the times in order for your business to survive. You still need to get word out to your potential customers.
You need people to buy your products and/or services. Your goal should be to take advantage of both the traditional and online worlds depending on the demographics you are trying to reach.
Many of the older generation are still relying on what they consider the "tried and true ways" whereas younger generations are strongly into technology. As a result, it is vital that you start out with a clear-cut objective in mind and know who your target audience is.
Online Marketing is Here to Stay!
What is online or internet marketing? Online or internet marketing is about targeting the very people that are looking for your products and/or services. Statistics show that over 75% of consumers now start their searches on the internet.
However, with over three trillion websites on the World Wide Web, it is getting harder and harder to be found. So how are you going to stand out among all that competition?
There are a lot of so called "internet gurus" or "internet experts" out there. How do you know whether those people really even know what they are doing? Do you know the right questions to ask?
Are you aware that more and more consumers are now using mobile devices to do online searches? Do you realize that your regular website doesn’t show up well on a small mobile screen? Did you know that when people are searching for products and/or services on their mobile devices, statistics show they are much closer to making a buying decision than when they are using their desktop or laptop computers?
With the advent of the smart phone, it is becoming very clear that not only personal computers but also mobile platforms must be considered in your online marketing program.
Statistics show that over 90% of the population is walking around with a cell phone. That cell phone – especially if it is a smart phone – can be used for a great deal more than make phone calls.
For many people, mobile is becoming the platform of choice. What does that mean for your business?
It could literally make the difference between success and failure.
Our motto is "empowering businesses to help themselves". We can help you put an online marketing program together, help you understand the purpose of marketing on the internet and know the right answers to ask when you are looking for help.
