Digital Marketing can be extremely overwhelming. It’s a lot to keep track of! Ads are not just something you can “turn on.” Digital Marketing is multi-faceted and complex. The Digital Marketing space is ever-changing and with constant growth comes new platforms, best practices, and an insane number of trends. If all this seems like a lot, you’ve come to the right place. Brand Ranch Media is here to help you understand the ins and outs of digital marketing and how it specifically ties into your industry. Whether it’s awareness, revenue, or loyalty you are after, we take a strategic approach to getting you there.
How does Digital Marketing apply to your Business?
Let’s say you’ve bought a billboard on a prime location of I-45 where there always seems to be a surge of traffic. The billboard does what it should and provokes the thought of a consumer needing your product or service. When the person pulls up their phone to search, enters your company’s name, there are ten other companies listed above yours in their search results.
If you were to think back to all the times you have Googled something, when is the last time you went to the second page to find specifically what you were looking for? For most people, they click on the first few links. Now your lead (revenue) has gone to your biggest competitor (the company that put time into a comprehensive digital marketing strategy).
This is where we come in!
Digital Marketing is Dynamic, Complex, and Ever-Changing
The goal is to put a great ad in front of people who need your business. It’s easy to say, “I want more leads”. However, let’s talk about the magic that happens behind the scenes to get you there.
You can’t just start running a Search ad, for example. Things like branding, strategy, and a detailed plan need to be established first. There’s a method to the madness. Here’s a first look at where to get started. Research is so important and often overlooked. Customer behavior and demographics, market research, and competitor strategy need to be fully reviewed to create a successful advertising campaign.
Staying on top of trends can be daunting and time-consuming. It’s imperative to know what works, what doesn’t work, what is new and evolving, and how it can give you a competitive advantage.
As Digital Marketing popularity continues to skyrocket, we have seen an influx of ads everywhere we look. Consumers are leery about spending their money. An offer is not enough to close the deal. They want a personalized approach for their needs to be met.
Lots of planning goes into a successful campaign. There needs to be a deep dive into your business goals and what you want your campaign strategy to look like. Once your plan has been established, applying those goals and strategies to your creative process is essential. This will come in the form of branding, tone, voice, etc. It is also critical to understand customer behavior.
In a sea of ads, you must stand out or the viewer’s eyes will continue to gloss over and keep scrolling. A creative team that knows what they’re doing is crucial. Every ad platform is ever-changing. Having a team that is up to date on best practices for each platform is essential to your success rate.
The success of any campaign is dependent on the ability to target the right audience. With proper execution, ads can target very detailed audiences based on demographics, interests, locations, types of products and services they are currently in-market for, and websites or topics they have previously browsed.
It’s important to measure the success rate of your ads to ensure a high return on investment. Using the right media platforms and performing ongoing data analysis is pivotal to your campaigns overall. It is also important to utilize tracking software to monitor where your leads come from, qualify them, and measure your return on ad spend.
