What You Should Know About Pinterest Advertising

Pinterest Advertising

If you own a business, you probably already understand how an established online presence can benefit your brand. Social media is not only a free tool for marketers and business owners that can be utilized to bring more brand awareness, but it can also be a vital element of any advertising efforts. 

Do you want to bring in more leads and get your products or services in front of the right eyes? Consider investing in Pinterest Advertising! Here’s how. 

 

What You Should Know About Pinterest Advertising

 

  1. Pinterest for Business – Before you do anything, make sure to switch your account to a business one so you can access specific features like analytics and the Ads Manager.
  2. Goal setting – What do you want people to do after they see your ad? Choosing your goal should be based on what’s most important to your business for this each campaign.
  3. Targeting – Take time narrowing down your ideal target. You should strive to reach the people on Pinterest who are most likely to show an active interest in your ads. Your targeting options can be determined by certain keywords, interests, demographics or placements. You can also use individual targets or combine multiple approaches.
  4. Budgeting – You can select a lifetime option if you want us to use your budget evenly in a chosen timeline. Pinterest will automatically adjust budgets based on how much there is left to deliver. If you select a daily approach, you will only use a specific amount you want to spend each day.
  5. Pin Success – You should promote Pins that are already doing well to reach even more people. Visit your Analytics board to see what’s performing well. Remember to ONLY promote content you own, and make sure every Pin links to a website. 

 

There you go! Use these 5 easy steps and take your Pinterest Advertising strategy to another level! If you need help managing your business account, don’t hesitate to contact Famous WSI Results!

5 Steps to Successful Content Marketing Strategy

5 Steps to Successful Content Marketing Strategy

5 Steps to Successful Content Marketing Strategy

Content marketing gives small businesses a chance to become publishers of valuable information and allows them a better success rate when competing with larger competitors.  While any business can publish and curate content, many brands have a hard time developing the mindset to create a consistent flow of new, interesting information. 

Content Marketing Mix 

According to the experts, a best-in-class content marketing mix should consist of: 

  • 65% original content (created by your business)
  • 25% curated content
  • 10% syndicated content

Sharing a marketing mix of different sources of high value content can help with leveraging your resources more efficiently, while better engaging your target audience. 

Want to know more? Here’s 5 tips for creating a successful content marketing strategy. 

 

5 Tips for Successful Content Marketing Strategy 

 

1. Identify Your Ideal Customers – This is a key in order to create an effective roadmap for your content marketing strategy. Where do your customers hang out in real life and online? What forums and websites do they visit? What challenges do they face and what kind of content can you create that will help them overcome these challenges? Buyers are already overwhelmed by the amount of content that businesses generate, so it is imperative to focus on quality instead of quantity.
 

2. Repurpose Content – Don’t waste your marketing budgets on recreating content that already exists. Convert existing content into quality one that is well-thought-out in order to be well-received, hence leading to more conversions. There are undoubtedly presentations, proposals, brochures and action plans that can be adapted for content marketing purposes.
 

Content Marketing

3. Perform Content Audit – Replace or remove outdated content from your website, brochures, presentations and action plans. Few businesses visit their own website on a regular basis and often fail to identify outdated information. A content audit will show you where you need to remove and replace old legacy content.
 

4. Share Quality Content – If you’re working with content that’s more than five years old, you might find that it contains good information but the tone, style and focus don’t hit the mark anymore. Improving and tweaking existing content can stretch your marketing budget and make your content more effective.
 

5. Use Content in New and Creative Ways – Transform case studies into downloadable infographics, turn internal company news into blog posts or short form video content, and post photos from your conferences and work functions to Pinterest and Facebook. Make your content strategy as far-reaching and effective as possible using innovative ways to turn it into multimedia, news items or any type of content that your target audience would want to consume. 

 

As you can see, curating content that is meaningful in an organized, valuable way can be a valuable part of any successful content marketing strategy. But what if most small businesses can’t spend too much time on creating quality content?  This is where you can outsource help!

Ways to Improve Your Digital Marketing Strategy and Reach New Customers

Ways to Improve Your Digital Marketing Strategy and Reach New Customers

Did you know that every day Google notes about 40,000 search queries per second? According to another statistic, active shoppers do a least one search a day. This means customers these days are curious and research driven. The questions you should be asking yourself now is whether your business digital marketing strategy helps you reach those customers?

If your answer is no, it’s time to work on your strategy. Lucky for you, Google offers a lot of insight into the changing patterns and customer shopping profiles. Here are some things to consider before you put a new digital marketing strategy in place.

 

How to Improve Your Digital Marketing Strategy to Reach New Customers

 

  • Immediacy trumps loyalty – Your business has to be right there when potential customers are looking for something.  Research shows that searches “today, tonight, open now” are becoming more popular every day.
  • Near me searches tripled since 2015. Is your business Google listing up to date?
  • Nearly 9 in 10 smartphone users are not certain of the specific brand they want to buy from when they begin to look at information online. This is the chance for your business to stand out. Think of an interesting business creative to grab their attention.

  • Customers are quick to judge a business online if they don’t have a good experience right away. Research shows you only have 3 seconds to make a good impression online!
  • Customers these days are impatient and they want to access everything right away. If they can’t find your contact information with one click, you may be losing that sale. Make sure your website is mobile friendly and easy to navigate to avoid any confusion.
  • Customers are more demanding, informed and aware. Therefore, you have to tailor your strategy to market each customer individually.
  • Mobile strategy is a must – Google is recording more mobile than desktop searches every day. Did you know an average consumer looks at his/her phone about 70 times a day? Mobile phone changed how we interact with the world, so make sure you include a voice search and mobile-friendly website in your business digital marketing strategy.

Here Are Our 2019 Digital Marketing Predictions

Here Are Our 2019 Digital Marketing Predictions

Can you believe it’s almost time to say goodbye to 2018? As we close in the fourth quarter, we can’t help but reflect on this part year. There was surely a lot going on in the digital marketing world! From Google Chrome security updates, Facebook and Instagram algorithm changes to rise of new smart technology, we can’t wait to see what 2019 digital marketing tactics are going to trend!

Speaking of the new year, do you have your new marketing strategy in place? If you still haven’t thought of new digital marketing trends that 2019 might bring, here are our predictions: 

 

2019 digital marketing trends to watch out for: 

 

  1.  Optimize Content for Voice Search – Now is the time to brainstorm new keyword strategies that will cater to all those customers who love using the latest smart technologies (Alexa, Siri) in their search queries.
  2. Diversify Your Content Strategy – In the past year, digital creators and marketers focused more on long-form content (+2,000 words) to rank higher in search. However, it’s been proven that blogs or articles don’t have to be long to be considered valuable. That’s why it’s good to focus on both short and long-form pieces in the new year, so you can cater to those with shorter attention spans as well.
  3. Consider Influencer Marketing – This form of marketing/ advertising will only continue to grow in the next year. Partnering with influencers and content creators to promote your products or build brand awareness is an excellent and effective way to organically reach more valuable customers.
  4. Produce More Video Content – Video is already getting a boost in search from all voice queries, so don’t neglect it in 2019. Producing video content is a great way to liven up your marketing strategy!
  5. Invest in Chatbots – According to Forbes, research “predicts that the chatbot industry will grow significantly as enterprises are enabled to substantially reduce operating costs”. Needless to say, consider investing in this kind of a 24/7 customer service representative to take your business to the next level in 2019.

Why Should You Outsource Digital Marketing Services?

outsource digital marketing

We live in a fast-paced world, when nearly every piece of information needs to be delivered right away. These days we rely on technology so much that being constantly connected to social media became a bit of a job. Not to mention, there’s a sense of responsibility to be present online whether you know digital marketing or not!

So how are small business owners who deal with daunting day to day operations of running a business supposed to manage it all? Well, they don’t have to. That’s when you outsource digital marketing services!

You see, a digital marketing team you hire will not only stay abreast of all new digital marketing tactics, but they will also know how to help your business adapt to the changes. Trust us, nothing ever stays the same in the digital world! Just in the last year, Google Chrome made a number of changes to their security requirements, Facebook announced a new “community commitment” and Instagram updated their algorithm every few months. Is your business able to keep up with all the updates without the expert knowledge of how to navigate this digital space?

outsourcing digital marketing

WSI experts said it best: When it comes down to it, working with an agency is better than going it alone – even if you’re a solopreneur – because there is so much to learn about the digital world. We say it all the time, but it’s tough to keep up with digital marketing trends, even for marketers and agencies. And we live this stuff, every single day!

When you work with an agency, not only do you solve the “time is money” problem and escape the sell-do loop, you also gain access to the knowledge of people and resources who can take you – and your business – to the next level. Gaining knowledge is power, and it’s also so much better than struggling by yourself.

Makes sense? Next time you worry about the numbers and not enough leads, do yourself a favor and think about outsourcing digital marketing experts! They will assess your online presence from every possible angle and come up with a solution and marketing strategy that’s catered to your needs! They will also make advertising for your industry simple and straightforward.

  1.  Offer Special Deals – Reward your best customers for their loyalty throughout the year by giving exclusive discounts or personal gift based on their purchase history. 
  2. Create Holiday Landing Pages – Create holiday landing pages that you can send customers to from your social media and emails campaigns. Be sure to have several different designs and do some split testing to determine the highest converting pages. 
  3. Start a Social Media Campaign – Use holiday specific images, hashtags and special offers to attract customers willing to spend. This is the time when they are starting to search for deals! Encouraging social media interaction will also get people in the holiday spirit of shopping.

Facebook Advertising Tips

Tips for Using Facebook Advertising

Facebook Advertising Tips

Over the years, Facebook has proven to be the top social media platform to use for marketing and advertising purposes. Many businesses today know that by sharing relevant, engaging content, they can reach and build organic relationships with potential customers.

While there’s many ways you can use Facebook for your business, probably the most powerful and rewarding feature to focus on is Facebook Advertising. In today’s post, we’re going to discuss how to leverage Fb Ads in order to get the best return on your investment.

 

Facebook Advertising Tips

 

  • Target the Right Audience – Depending on the ad you create, you can reach millions of people but it doesn’t mean much if you don’t target the right audience. To determine who might want to engage with your content the most, look into Facebook’s Audience Insights. Make sure you pay attention to what other pages your target audience likes, what are their interests, job titles and what platforms they are engaging on.

 

  • Design an Appealing Landing Page Getting potential customers to click on your ad is just a start. Making sure they want to stay on your site to sign up for the offer is another thing. If you’re serious about getting good results from your Facebook Advertising campaign, design an appealing landing page that will make the deal so irresistible, the targeted audience would feel like missing out if they didn’t go for it. Things to remember when designing an appealing landing page: know your campaign’s goal (lead generation, sales, brand awareness, etc.), include engaging visuals, stay on brand and get rid of any distractions.

 

  • Look into Lead Ad Advertising – With Facebook Lead Ad targeting, you can reach the people most likely to be interested in your business and submit your form, so you can efficiently reach high-quality leads on Facebook. By clicking your lead ad, customers will see a form that’s already filled with info they’ve shared with Facebook—like their name, number, or email. Once you capture your leads, you can use the contact info to create Custom Audiences and Lookalike Audiences to remarket and find new customers.
    FB Lead Ads

 

  • Create an Eye-Catching Image – When you’re designing a Facebook Ad image, you have to meet certain requirements in order for the content to be approved. That’s because Facebook wants your content to stand out among others. To create an appealing image, don’t overcrowd it with a text copy (use Text Overlay Tool), look beyond the stock photo and always keep it on brand (colors, fonts, message, landing page, etc.)

 

  • Utilize Video in Your Facebook Ads – Video seems to hold a special place in the Facebook’s feed, so don’t be afraid to use it to your advantage! Video content has proven to bring better results and it’s simply because people love to watch vs. Read. If you’re able to grab your potential customer’s attention within the first 3-4 seconds, you’re golden.

 

  • Monitor Your Campaign and Adjust It in Real Time. – Don’t wait until the ad is over. Make sure to check your results frequently to ensure you’re getting the most out of the money you invested. If the existent campaign is not resonating with your audience, optimize your call to action or update your audience targeting requirements to reach the right people.

Google Analytics Tools

5 Google Analytics Tools to Include In Your Marketing Strategy

Google Analytics Tools

Tracking conversion is one of the most important tasks we have as digital marketers. Thankfully, there are many free services like Google Analytics tools that we can use to quickly and efficiently measure any inbound marketing efforts. Moreover, we can also see if the website that we’re monitoring is actually helping the business or doing the opposite. 

Are you using Google Analytics to its full potential as a business owner or marketer? If you’re not sure, try incorporating these 5 Google Analytics tools into your marketing strategy now. 

 

5 Google Analytics Tools to Include In Your Marketing Strategy

 

  1. Measure Your Website’s Speed.

    As you may already know, SEO plays a huge role in helping your site rank higher in Google Search. Unfortunately, there’s many things than can badly affect your SEO and one of them is your site’s loading time. Moreover, depending on the download speed of your site, you can either gain more website visitors or lose them. To check out your site speed metrics and diagnose any problems, go to Behavior > Site Speed > Overview, or Behavior > Site Speed > Page Timings (for individual pages of your site).

  2. Analyze Site Searches.

    Want to know how to deliver content your website visitors came for? Enable a search option on your site and then use Behavior > Site Search in Google Analytics to get the data.

  3. Set Up Goals.

    Often overlooked, Goals are a feature that’s simple to use and quite effective at measuring conversion. To create goals, make sure you have admin rights to your Google Analytics page and then go to Admin > Goals > New Goal. From there, you choose a Goal Type you wish to start monitoring (URL Destination, Visit Duration, Page/Visit, Event).

  4. Look into Reporting.

    Whether you want to check your own results or report to your clients, you can do so manually or get weekly/ monthly reports straight to your email. To get the most out of your data collection, we recommend covering 7 areas in your Google Analytics report – Audience Overview, Acquisition Overview, Channels, Social Network Referrals, Mobile Overview and Goals Overview.

  5. Stop Tracking Yourself.

    Assuming you’re the #1 of your website, you probably visit it every single day. To ensure the traffic you bring is not being registered in your Google Analytics reports, you can use a tool to exclude yourself from any future data collection. First, set up a filter under the “Admin” panel. If you have a static IP address, go to All Filters > Add New Filter, and then set a Predefined Filter to Exclude traffic from your given IP address. 

 

There you have it! Starting with just these 5 Google Analytics tools should give you a great deal of information about your marketing efforts. If you want to learn more on how to get the most out of your Google Analytics, stay tuned for more tips!

By implementing a few reputation-protection measures and taking the time to consciously monitor your online reputation, we lessen the chances of having to spend countless dollars cleaning up your reputation.
