It can be difficult for business owners to see the value in certain marketing exercises, especially if they are not working with a long-term strategy or a cohesive plan for marketing to their ideal audience. Measuring the value that marketing initiatives give in terms of a monetary return can be tricky but it’s not impossible and it’s definitely necessary to ensure that a business gets the most out of their marketing spend and effort.
In our online world, digital marketing is a must for any small business wanting to get noticed, raise brand awareness, and increase sales. As a small business owner, you probably know this but might think it’s all a little too complicated, time-consuming, or costly to take your business marketing digital.
Your business probably already has a website, leaving you wondering why you would need a new one. However, if it’s older than 3 years, odds are you do. By this time, it’s more than likely to be out of date both in terms of design and content, leaving any visitors with a poor impression and missing the chance to sell your services to your ideal customer.
2018 is on its way and we’re excited to start planning a big year of strategies, campaigns and connections! As the experts in all things digital marketing, we’re committed to helping our clients achieve the best possible results through customised digital marketing strategies that work to drive brand awareness and increase sales.
Whether you’ve just started out in digital marketing or are helping a client to get started (or rebooted) online, it will soon become clear to you that a website is a key marketing tool for any business looking to establish their online presence and capture the attention of their target market.
In today’s visual world, content marketing (or inbound marketing as it is also known) is becoming increasingly image-centric and infographics have taken up pride of place as a widely used marketing tool. Simply put, an infographic is a visual representation of content or data. Done right, it can summarise relevant information in an easily digestible format (often including potentially boring statistics) that is great to look at and easy to learn from.
At Switch Marketing, we love websites – designing them, managing them, using them to generate leads, convert interested visitors, and grow your brand presence. In fact, we think that your website is one of your business’ greatest inbound marketing tools. And that means that every element, from the home page to the functionality to ‘extras’ like landing pages, downloads, and social media links need to be up to date and work perfectly.
