FOUR COMMON BENEFITS OF ONLINE MARKETING
Online marketing enables precision business relationships to be formed
There are various methods of nurturing relationships on line, to further promote your product/services. Whether you offer a newsletter through email or social media, this can be streamlined for a target audience that already have an interest or need for what you produce. It also is an efficient way to develop new and beneficial relationships with other business executives working towards building a multi-layered network.
- Whatever the time zone or country of destination, online marketing sees no bounds
Once your blogs or newsletters have been uploaded onto the Internet they are there for eternity, or until they are modified/updated. This gives your business an advantage that is not restricted by time zones, hours of business or any geographic restrictions. At the click of a button this information is available for new and existing customers worldwide, to ponder over and send enquiries of any nature. Your audience can be increased dramatically more than any other form of media has done throughout history.
- Advertising expenses are greatly reduced with on line marketing
The cost of producing and uploading written text via blogs, social media and websites is significantly lower than the previous traditional methods. Here are some of the more obvious savings:-
- Reams of paper no longer required for expensive and time-consuming mail outs. Most of the information would be on your website and catalogues could be emailed upon request.
- Travel expenses minimised as conferences or lectures can be presented satisfactorily on line. This would also avoid many days lost, away from the day to day running of your business.
- Advertising costs could be dramatically reduced using on line tools and social media.
- The Internet is where the action is
The Internet has rapidly replaced most other forms of enquiry and investigation. With faster connections and multiple smart devices that connect to the World Wide Web, it makes sense that consumers turn to this method to choose a service or product that suits their needs.
Social media reflects the enormous numbers using this form of communication, therefore advertising was the logical conclusion to include on these pages. The audience was already in place, so now the ability to streamline and target consumers’ interests in a more exacting manner has become the way of the future.
