Imagine this. You’ve got a board meeting tomorrow to define your digital marketing strategy to the board.
Broadly you have two routes to market online – paid digital marketing and organic reach. How do you allocate your marketing budget?
Paid digital marketing is the easier sell. Your digital displays, search engine ads and paid social ads provide relatively clear instant measurable results. Money in, leads and opportunities out.
Paid marketing is the ‘crack cocaine’ of digital marketing. Sure, you’ll get those instant measurable results, but you shouldn’t become overly dependent on it.
According to Retailing Today, 81% of shoppers research online before buying. Moreover, e-consultancy reports that 61% of shoppers read product reviews before making a purchase.
The more content there is easily accessible, that provides access to your goods and services, the more opportunities that you’ll have.
Paid marketing help to show you what works, but neglect organic research and reputation management at your long term peril.
Our content marketing skill, expertly produced content and market leading outreach technology will help you beat the competition.
Your relationship with a selected digital marketing agency is likely to begin with a digital marketing audit which makes sense and is highly appropriate.
However, often this digital audit often focuses on the on-page optimisation of a website, in many cases this makes sense, but often not for a start-up.
We approach things differently, we evaluate where you’re likely to get the best return on investment, the risk profile and position accordingly.
