Many small businesses often struggle with defining their online marketing strategy.

With such a proliferation of online marketing  techniques with strange names like Squidoo, HubPages, Twitter, Ning, Digg and Foursquare, it is easy to understand why.

Defining an effective online marketing strategy requires in-depth knowledge of many disciplines  such as:  keyword research, search engine optimization, link building strategy, article marketing, blogging, directory submissions, Social Media, Pay Per Click Advertising, page ranks, web analytics, email marketing, auto responders and many more.

Even if you can design your own web pages, are on Facebook and understand the the importance of search engine optimization, it is still wise to bounce your ideas off someone who has knowledge and experience.

An online marketing strategy consists of many moving parts and it is easy to get it wrong. If nothing else, getting an advice early in the game will give you clarity as to what needs to happen, in what order and why.

It will also give you a realistic view of the effort required, costs involved and the outcomes you can expect.

Online Marketing Strategy Advice

In essence, an Online Marketing Strategy consultation will give you the answer to the following questions:

  • how should you structure your website, so that it is easily navigated by your potential visitors and quickly indexed by the search engines
  • what search terms (keywords) should you focus on when building your website content
  • what you should do to get traffic (visitors) to your website
  • what should you focus on to increase the probability of visitor conversion (from casual browsers to qualified leads and sales)

We approach building your online marketing strategy in a structured manner, starting with a thorough keyword research. Using state of the art keywords research tools, we are able to determine how many searches are performed for a particular keyword (search term), every month, on all of the major search engines. They also show us how much competition there is for each particular keyword, and where there is a potential gap worth targeting.

We then draw the recommended structure of your website, the pages and sub-pages, how your content should be split up and what you need to focus on to attract traffic to your website and encourage visitor conversion.

As the last step, we advise you on the most appropriate marketing channels and techniques and suggest how you should allocate your marketing budget.
