With the right approach and consistency, you are guaranteed to see amazing results. So, keep reading to learn about five digital marketing methods that you need to know about.

Video Marketing

Video marketing is the use of videos to promote and market your business, products, and services. This form of marketing uses videos to inform your audience about your product or service in an effective way, because people respond well to video content. This form of marketing is great for increasing engagement on all of your digital and social channels, and you are able to boost your brand awareness by educating your audience through a new medium that is very immersive and engaging. Video ads and viral videos are examples of video marketing that many brands and businesses use, so do not sleep on this strategy. This isn’t the easiest form of marketing to execute, however, it is very effective and ignoring this strategy will have an effect on sales.

Mobile Marketing

Mobile marketing is a form of multi-channel marketing which focuses on reaching target audiences via their smartphones, tablets, or other electronic devices. Usually companies send e-mails, SMS’s, MMS’s, and also reach their audience through social media and mobile apps. This form of marketing promises instant results because people always have their devices on their person these days, which means the message will be received the moment it is sent, and the receiver can act on it.

This form of marketing is also affordable and enables you to build a stronger relationship with your customers. Overall, mobile data helps you effectively reach your target audience, and you are easily able to track user response. By not using mobile marketing, you are missing out on reach because some customers, such as the senior demographic, aren’t usually tech savvy. As a result, they won’t be in the loop with other digital marketing efforts.  Just ensure you do not spam your customers with too many messages.

SEO Marketing

SEO marketing is the act of orienting your website or blog so that it ranks higher on the search engine results page. This will result in more traffic on your site which increases brand awareness and visibility. If your ranking is high, people will also associate your business with being more credible and reliable which reflects in sales and profits. Ensure that you publish content that is relevant and authoritative, and have a site that is link worthy. If you ignore SEO marketing, your website will rank poorly which will reduce your credibility.

Social Media Marketing

Billions of people are active on social media these days which makes social media marketing an important part of your digital marketing strategy. Social media is an affordable way to market, and you have a massive reach at your disposal. You can market organically by creating quality content and having a consistent presence on social media, or you can opt for paid ads/sponsorships which allows you to pay the social media platform to push your content to any desired amount of people. You can also utilize influencer marketing which is effective because influencers have power in their niche and have a large and trusting following. Ignoring this step will result in a loss of online credibility.

Email Marketing

Email marketing is when your business sends commercial messages to a group of people via email. Each email is sent to a current or potential customer, and you can use this form of marketing to send advertisements, promotions, or even to request business. To effectively pull off this form of marketing you must define your audience and create a way for people to sign up to the email list. You also need to plan and schedule when emails will be sent, keeping in mind that you cannot spam your customers with too many emails, or they will unsubscribe to the email list. You don’t want to ignore this channel of communication and connection with your customers.
