Online Marketing is all about making you visible to your buyer who is searching for you online

While you are creating your online visibility, you are creating an image for yourself, your business and your products and services

The more you are seen and your message is delivered across many online channels such as SEO, Email Marketing and Social Media, the more chance of brining visitors back to your website where you want them to check out your offers and, ultimately, either buy there and then or contact you to buy

The more opportunities that offer themselves to promote yourself on, the more it becomes critical to check the outcomes and your budget for your online marketing

Here are five tips for you to consider when setting up your online marketing and what your budget might have to be to engage such services

5 Tips How to be more Visible Online

1. SEO – Search Engine Optimization

This area has become more and more blurred to the end user as to what it is and what is actually done by an SEO specialist to get your website to be ranked high. The reason for this is the changes implemented by Google in order to create fair and searcher friendly results. Imagine it was all down to just paying for it, only the highest bidder had a chance to be found. Google is placing high emphasis on your website being visited regularly and visitors staying on your site for a while.

However there is still a large component ‘behind the scenes’ that needs to be in place that’s SEO, such as keywords and phrases, meta tags, descriptions and code which is best left to those who understand it (and that can be tricky for the average business owner to determine)

SEO plans range from $500 to $5000 per month…Stickybeak Marketing has SEO Specialists who first test what needs doing and quote, not simply put you on a package

 

2. Social Networking – Social Media

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest and more…all platforms you can set your profile up yourself, so only your time to account for. Same with keeping information coming onto the sites, you can do that yourself, provided you know what will work and how often you should post. You can hand this work to a staff member but you must check it regularly and be sure the information put out there is consistent with the image you want to create

Social Media Marketing can be done for you and starts from around $199 per month…but that is usually for posting contend only once a week into one of two platforms…Stickybeak Marketing offers Social Media Set Up Packages which determine exactly how much you should be doing to be successful rather than putting you into a pre-determined plan
