There are many things to take into consideration when you own a business. Least of which should be digital marketing. As technology grows customers will continue to use digital media devices to find things they are looking for. The more time a customer spends online the more likely they are to run into digital advertisements. The trick that companies need for success is the ability to utilize this sort of media.
1. Invest. Most of the consumer base will spend double the time that companies spend engaging in social and digital media. Currently there is a dramatic split between customers and companies within the realm of digital media, a lot of companies believe they can’t afford the time or money that goes into this type of marketing strategy. Even with the under usage digital media is a ever growing industry, in the year 2011 it is expected to grow fourteen percent at which point it will be the biggest increase the market has seen. Owners everywhere should be looking into new ways to use digital marketing.
2. Create a message that consumers want to hear. Consumers typically dislike the commercial effect, unless you are talking about the commercials on during the Super Bowl, and lets face it small businesses don’t make the revenue to afford Bowl commercials. Digital media allows for searching, searching is beneficial to marketers because it takes away the annoyance at finding something you aren’t interested in when you are looking for something specific.
3. Get creative. Consumers look at the content as much as they do the website it comes from. Creating interesting and relevant content will help keep customers interested. The more generic your information is the more likely it will be that customers don’t want it.
