No matter the quality of product or service your business provides, your commercial success is determined by how many clients you can attract.
As our lives become increasingly dominated by digital spaces, marketing efforts have to adapt to a changing market place, and digital marketing is becoming ever more complex and dominant. In this article, we take a look at how important digital marketing is in 2022, with a quick look at basics like SEO and social media presence.
Search Engine Optimisation
The internet is increasingly becoming saturated with websites and content, and that content is ranked through search engine optimisation or SEO. As we go forward and more websites and blogs become present in the digital realm, SEO will become even more important.
Without a basic understanding and a strategic approach, it’s easy to become lost in the plethora of related content. SEO is something that can be studied and learned through online resources. Still, it can also be highly valuable to seek the advice of a digital marketing specialist for some industry-specific insights.
While social media started as an alternative way of communicating and sharing insights into our daily lives, it has become much more. It now permeates most aspects of our lives and massively impacts our purchasing decisions. Almost all successful companies are active on social media, especially Instagram and Facebook.
For small and big companies alike, it’s a great way to increase exposure and create a sense of community around your brand. Social media can be a space for customers to ask questions and interact with one another, making a brand feel more like a communal space than simply a marketing tool.
Decreased marketing costs
Previously, marketing required the help of expert teams of designers, and the purchasing of space in newspapers or on billboards, a complex process that required a significant budget. Nowadays, digital marketing can be successfully achieved for a relatively small cost. In addition, social media development and basic SEO practices can be applied for a relatively low investment and be comparatively effective.
Digital marketing can also be targeted at a far more specific demographic, meaning that branding efforts don’t have to be blindly spread out into the world, hoping that they’ll eventually reach someone who’s interested.
UX and web design
As an increasing number of businesses develop their online presence, something that marks them apart is their focus on user experience design or UX.
Websites which are easy to navigate and are designed around a pleasant aesthetic are more likely to attract customers, especially if they can outcompete other competitors and their approach to UX.
Consumers are increasingly coming to value convenience, and even something as basic as a brief lag in website loading can result in the difference between a lead converting or not.
