Casting a wide net and narrowing it down to your target audience is something all entrepreneurs do when they are trying to promote a product. It can seem like a formidable task, but in today’s world, online marketing and social media present us with the best tools to attract large audiences.
Building a following online is relatively cheaper than working with physical campaigns. The trick lies in strategic, sustained efforts that value building relationships over speed. To your advantage, the modern Internet is ideal for targeting, which means you can draw people to your content using the information they have willingly supplied to improve their online experiences. For those who have a budget, it is worth investing in interest targeting through sites like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube, then fine-tuning promotions by retargeting. Retargeting is helpful since it allows you to advertise to those who engaged with your ad, which will more likely lead to a conversion. Best of all, these can all be analyzed by the websites’ analytics tools. But remember: don’t start and stop. This is one area where patience pays off big time.
In online marketing, the biggest investment is in the time spent on learning about keywords that are relevant to your business and using them to create great content. You have the creative freedom to write articles, produce videos, or create a unique voice for your brand. You are also in a position to learn new skills as you progress. The resources available to learn are mostly free or cheap, making it a worthwhile investment.
It may not always be best to use only the most popular keywords. Niche markets can offer a premium for those creating custom products. Thus, the long tail of keywords, those keywords that don’t have the same volume of traffic but represent a consistent level of search, can be very rewarding as well. Best of all, when bidding for keywords to place pay-per-click ads, these keywords tend to be cheaper because of less competition.
Ultimately, the dream is to build a community of fans who love your product and earn you free promotion through word-of-mouth. Make sure to decide if you are aiming to raise brand awareness or trying to get the customer to make a purchase whenever you market your product or brand. Decisions like these will help you determine how much you are spending and what types of campaigns to run. Define your goals, identify your target audience, and strategize ways to reach your customers.
