6 Who s in the room?

7 Set an intention: What s the one thing you want to get out of this workshop?

8 Why Most Organizations Fail at Online Marketing

9 Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted The trouble is I don t know which half.

10 1. Vague Intentions Beware when people say things like We re promoting thought leadership. We re raising brand awareness. We need to get our name out there. (Especially if you re the one saying it.)

11 2. Not Measuring Results What outcomes do you want? What does success look like, in measurable terms? How will you know that it s working? How will you know that it s not working, and that you need to do something different?

12 3. Spreading Resources Too Thin

13 Bruce Lee I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.

14 4. Reinventing the Wheel

15 5. A.D.D.

16 Principles of an Effective Online Marketer 1. Set clear objectives and choose your strategy, channel, tool, etc., accordingly 2. Focus on a handful of tools and strategies 3. Follow best practices in everything you do 4. Measure your results. Measure what matters. 5. Adopt a Kaizen Mindset: Test, Measure, Tweak, Study, Repeat

17 And most importantly never lose sight of the bigger picture. The goal of marketing is to get Customers. Period.

18

19 How People Think Online Marketing Works Likes & Followers

20 How Online Marketing Actually Works Step 1. You create a website. Step 2. You get people to come to that website. Step 3. Your website educates visitors and (hopefully) convinces them you re the right person/company to solve their problem. Step 4. They contact you, come into your store, or buy from you online. Step 5. You give them what they need to solve their problem and they give you money in exchange (i.e. Profit!).

21 The Magic Online Marketing Formula

22 Traffic x Conversion = Customers

23 The Basic Functions of Online Marketing 1. Drive Traffic (Visitors) 2. Convert Traffic Into Leads and Customers

24 Other Benefits of Online Marketing 1. Improve Customer Retention 2. Increase Frequency of Purchase 3. Increase Average Size of Sale 4. Decrease Time/Costs for Lead Generation and Sales 5. Boost Credibility and Reputation 6. Drive Referrals 7. Generate Customer Insights

25 To Start, Focus on This 1. Drive Traffic 2. Convert Traffic Into Leads and Customers

27 TRAFFIC Strategies, Tools, and Best Practices

28 Common Traffic Sources Organic Search (SEO) Digital advertising Content marketing Social media PR/Media

29 Traffic Comes In Many Forms Free vs. Expensive Low Volume vs. High Volume Short Term vs. Long Term Limited vs. Sustainable Low Quality vs. High Quality Easy vs. Difficult Asset vs. Commodity

30 Direct Search (SEO) Advantages: Disadvantages: Volume Potential: High Timeframe: Long-term Long Term Value: High Cost: Expensive/Timeintensive Difficulty: Technical/High Risk: High

31 Search Engine Optimization (SEO) You Should Use It If You have a product or service that people actively seek out by searching online, and keywords can be used to effectively target potential customers. Improving your rankings on Google for a set of keywords would bring a significant number of qualified visitors to your website. You see the long-term value in consistently growing the number of people who don t know your brand but discover you online by searching. Bonus: you ve tested and validated a specific set of keywords using Google ads

32 Digital Advertising Banner/Display Ads Search Advertising (ex. Google AdWords) Facebook Ads Yelp advertising

33 Digital Advertising Advantages: Volume Potential: High Control: Very High Time-frame: Short term Disadvantages: Cost: High Difficulty: Technical/High Risk: High

34 Digital Advertising You Should Use It If You want to test a particular audience, ad, value proposition, landing page, etc., before investing in a large ad campaign. You are willing to invest in a monthly budget for driving traffic to your website. Your ideal customers can be targeted by keywords (Google ads), demographics and preferences (Facebook ads), website, or other factors. You have access to a numbers-oriented marketer who a.) has experience in digital ads, and b.) can consistently monitor campaigns to optimize the performance of ads over time.

35 Content Marketing Blogging Ebooks Guest Articles Webinars Slideshare E-courses Podcasts Videos Interviews

36 Content Marketing Advantages: Disadvantages: Cost: Free (monetarily) Upfront Investment: High Long Term Value: High Risk: Low Secondary benefits: High Volume Potential: Limited (in the short term) Difficulty: Medium (requires expertise and skill in content creation) Control: Low

37 Content Marketing You Should Use It If Your product or service requires some level of education for your customers to see the full value in it, or for a relationship to be developed for them to trust your solution. Your product or service can be tied to a topic that people want to learn more about. You don t have a budget for paid ads or you want to stay in touch after the first impression and stay on top of your prospects minds.

38 Social Media Advantages: Cost: Free (monetarily) Disadvantages: Upfront investment: High Difficulty: Low Risk: Low Asset Value: High (if used right) Volume Potential: Limited (in the short term) Control: Low Ability to Monetize: Limited/Difficult Potential for Distraction: Extreme

39 Social Media You Should Use It If Your ideal customers are active on social media. You have a strategy for converting your followers to customers by making offers, running ads, and/or driving clicks to your website. Your business is brand- or community-driven.

40 PR/Media Advantages: Cost: Free (monetarily, unless using an agency) Volume Potential: High Risk: Low Disadvantages: Barrier to Entry: High Difficulty: High Control: Low Asset Value: High Secondary benefits: High

41 PR/Media You Should Use It If Your business has a great story to tell that is relevant to the types of articles that websites with relevant audiences like to publish. You are well-connected and can get into relevant media with high, qualified traffic. Social proof is a key element of your marketing strategy.
