In times of online marketing, generating leads online appears to be very straightforward. Simply build a landing page, put a bit of advertising on Facebook and off you go! However, if you have already attempted to generate high quality leads you know that there is more to it. Here are some of the best tips for finding potential customers and for acquiring their contact information.
Landing pages are one of the most important instruments of online marketing campaigns. The nice thing about them is: they can be created easily. For this you just need one of the many homepage builders or a good graphic program. But one look at different landing pages will demonstrate that the same mistakes are made over and over again. Find out now what those are, how to do it better and what is truly important when it comes to landing pages.
Chatbots, same day delivery or personalized purchases – 2017 promises to be an interesting year. This post provides information about which e-commerce trends will expand and be established and what is behind them.
Assistants including Cortana, Siri or Amazon’s Alexo prove that people are quite willing to accept assistance from intelligent machines when they have questions or need help making decisions. This is why chatbots are one of the most significant e-commerce trends. These small programs can bring lasting improvement to the customer’s shopping experience and they are just beginning to take off. For instance, when Facebook presented its bot-engine for the Messenger in 2016, over 30,000 bots were registered just six months later. Users can add them to Facebook-Messenger in the same way as a human contact. The chatbot assists them in the selection of the right eveningwear, the search for the best Italian restaurant or whatever else chatbot operators offer.
Do you want to create a new website? Redesign an old homepage? To be successful on Google, Bing and on other search engines, one thing is indispensable: the right keywords. We will show you which keyword types there are, how to find the right keywords, and how to search them.
1. The three keyword types
A) Navigation keyword
These keywords are entered by the user into a search engine to find a domain or a specific sub-page of the domain. In the simplest case, he/she enters the domain name into the search engine, e.g., “ebay.de”. This approach may seem ridiculous to an expert; in the language of young people, even the term “googler” is used. However, in fact, many Internet users do not know what an address bar is, or that they can also write the domain name directly there.
Not at all, because the user already knows which website he/she wants.
There are only a few weeks left until New Year. Reason enough for a blogger like me with a fondness for online marketing to pull out my crystal ball and take a peek at the future. I was able to discern ten online marketing trends, a few of which surprised even me.
1. Influencers are becoming increasingly important
Influencers won’t make you sick, but their opinions are contagious. Just like in real life there are people on the internet who have a strong influence on the opinions formed by large groups. They can be bloggers, Youtubers or other social media stars. If a product, webpage, service provider or something similar is recommended by these people, their followers will do more than just give it a cursory glance. The advantage influencers have is that they are considered credible. Unlike with classic advertising, their opinion is trusted. This comes from a study by the Territory Webguerillas agency from the summer of this year.
If you want to be successful with online marketing in 2017, you should cooperate with bloggers, YouTubers, etc. and win them over with your products and services.
