Online marketing; how can it be conducted and how does one go about it? These are questions that are frequently asked in connection to the online business marketplace. To answer these questions we must first classify the jargon.
Online Marketing: Promotion for your business so as to draw new, and keep existing, “customers” using the net.
So how does one go about marketing their business online? Online marketing can be achieved through lots of different techniques such as viral marketing and buying advertising space on one of the many high-profile websites such as Google and Cnet.com. Viral marketing can be carried out in a number of ways, all of which – unfortunately – involve lots of man-hours to instigate and carry-out. This makes viral advertising less fashionable, unless the product of the business being advertised is certain to make the company a profit and is certain to be worth it. This kind of viral and online marketing has been seen in the past with films such as The Blair Witch Project, Cloverfield, and The Dark Knight. These used complex websites that left clues for the audiences of such films, so that they could work out plots and sub-plots and find out things about the film before it was released in cinemas. This sort of advertising works very well when a lot time, effort and money are invested but the marketing best suited to the general public is usually the purchasing of advertising space on well known websites.
Another way of advertising and using online marketing to your advantage is the use of something called Search Engine Placement. This is the exploitation of popular search engines such as Google and Ask to improve the popularity of your business. Said search engines use keywords from the search data entered to search for the most relevant website for that specific user’s entry. One way of making the most of these search engines is by using these keywords on your site so that when searched for, your website has a better chance of coming up on the search-results list. This type of Search Engine Placement is useful so as to get your business higher on the search engine, thus getting your business reviewed by more and more people throughout the world. This should get your business more and more customers and should result in more profit.
One way to make use of search engine optimisation is through the use of an Search Engine Optimisation Company. An SEO company (which stands for, search engine optimisation company) is used to aid with the implementation of certain techniques to place your website higher on the search-list results page of a search engine website. This is done by the use of relevant keywords on the home page of the website so that these keywords are identified when certain search criteria are used. This is something that is usually attempted by the business in the first place but without the appropriate information and expertise the keywords are usually either not correctly identified or not correctly implemented in such a way so as to optimise the website. So with the correct usage of an SEO company, optimisation of the site can take place and the best possible way to benefit from online marketing and search engine placement can happen, helping your business compete in the fickle world that is the online market.
