Companies are becoming increasingly dependent on technology. But, the agencies they depended upon have now become obsolete. Hence, these companies are turning to Digital Marketing Agencies to get their business up and running again. Traditional marketing has almost gone out the window and could soon get extinct. Let us for instance consider hoardings. It is firstly very expensive and there is no way of quantifying the Return on this particular investment. There is no way of perfectly knowing the number of views, how many people like or dislike it.
On the other hand, Digital Marketing will give you very quantifiable results. What are the various digital solutions that can be offered to us? How do they compute these results?
Websites: Incase your firm still does not have a website, a digital agency could help you from scratch. They will build, design, create content, manage and update your site regularly. As they are professionals it greatly helps in enhancing user experience and thus getting business. How can you get business from your ‘site’? Well, a survey suggests that most number of people first look you up on the web and only then take the next step of buying from your site directly (if such an option is available) or visiting your store or office.
Mobile Marketing: Nowadays there are millions of people browsing the internet on the go via. mobile phones. If your site is not compatible with mobiles you are missing out on a major market share. Your site should not only be compatible with a desktop computer but also with tablets and mobiles. Even in mobiles, your site should be well- suited for phones of various size and operating systems.
Search Engine Optimization: As stated above, people look for your site online. How do they go about this? They do it via. search engines like Google, Yahoo or Bing. There are millions of sites on the net. What if your site is on the say 27th page of Google’s search results? Is that going to get you any visitors? SEO tweaks your site in such a way so as to bring it to the top three positions of the search results. This will highly increase your traffic. Google provides an analytics tool to track no. of visitors to you site, the time at which they came, geographical region, from which source did they reach our site etc. None of these are possible in traditional forms of marketing.
Social Networks: This kind of digital marketing solution is used mainly to build brand awareness, its recognition and thus brand equity. Most of your users today are very active on social networks. It is where you can connect or in better terms converse with your customers. Again, traditionally this is not possible. Your customer service betters manifold thus getting your brand a better name and thus, more customers. It is very easy to measure the people interested in your brand with provisions of the “like” button, +1 etc. These features vary from one network to another.
Pay per Click: There are also paid ads available on the internet. You have to pay on the basis of the number of clicks you got. Also there is a Pay per impression. Here, the hosting website or search engine displays your ad thousand times for a particular price. Still, this is comparatively cheaper than traditional marketing.
An agency provides every necessary digital marketing solution that a business may need. You could be catering to other businesses (B2B) or directly to customers (B2C). A digital agency does everything from scratch for you, thus giving your company higher returns.
