4 Components of a Successful Internet Marketing Strategy Explained
There has been a gradual evolution to internet marketing as we’ve had more time to understand how consumers interact with businesses online. Initially businesses posted a stagnant brochure style website if they had anything at all. Then there was a call for increased traffic, and more recently, the realization that a system had to be in place to capture and convert that traffic into leads and customers.
Your website is the hub of all of your marketing activities - your online storefront. While it doesn’t need to be fancy, it should be clean, user friendly, and offer educational content.
All of our sites are built on WordPress, the world’s most popular and easy-to-use content management system. They are responsive (mobile friendly) and offer the professional look and functionality that you need.
2. Traffic Generation
Your sources of traffic are like the spokes to your hub – all lead to your website. Traffic Generation can include Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Pay Per Click ads on either a search engine or social media site, social media, YouTube, blogging, etc. Although it can take a while, consistent use of these channels can have a definite impact on your website’s traffic.
3. Lead Generation
Increased traffic is great, but without a system in place to capture leads from that traffic, your business is not likely to benefit from the boost. You need to incorporate a Conversion Funnel and Lead Magnate to encourage visitors to exchange their contact information for your valuable contact.
4. Lead Nurturing
Now that a user has given you permission to continue to contact them, you must continue to supply helpful, non-salesy, information to them on a regular basis.
