Digital Marketing is Your Key to Success
When marketing your company, you aim to give consumers a compelling reason to care about and engage with your brand. One of the best ways to let your market know that you exist is via digital marketing. This doesn’t mean that this process is always as simple as boosting a post on Facebook or buying ad space on a website. Instead, it involves studying, testing, creating, designing, and then testing again.
To make the most out of digital marketing, it is important to have a definitive plan. This doesn’t mean that things won’t change along the way, but rather that you are making the most out of your digital media by using a strategic approach to gain results and insight. Many companies are using digital media effectively and possibly generating positive results from their search, email or social media marketing efforts; however, many are missing opportunities for better targeting or optimization.
it’s important to create a roadmap that takes your future and short-term goals into consideration. This roadmap should also allow you to build out your marketing platform incrementally—based on the technical realities as well as defining quick wins that allow for a steady, manageable evolution of your campaign. This will also provide clarity as to what should and can be done by helping you to create a decision-making framework for selecting the right strategy, placements, and realistic outcomes.
Even with a roadmap in place, in our experience, fear of the unknown is often a factor that comes into play. How can you invest in something that you don’t fully understand? Technology is always changing, so it’s difficult to keep up. Technology is not something that should be feared – it can amplify creativity. It allows us to understand people better, serve up more meaningful experiences and find people in the moments that matter. As marketers, what we do needs to make people feel something so powerful that they are compelled to act. If we think about technology and creativity in separate silos, we hinder the ability to achieve that effect to its fullest extent.
That isn’t to say that just because there is new technology available that we use it. The ability, skill, and knowledge necessary to manage and apply these new resources is something that must be earned and mastered before effective use.
Using digital marketing without a strategic approach is still commonplace. Without establishing a budget, benchmarks, goals, tactics, audiences, among other necessary factors, you are most likely not effectively implementing your digital marketing plan.
