Setting the Record Straight – Common Beliefs About Online Plumbing Marketing

February 13th, 2017

 

Online plumbing marketing should be an important part of your marketing strategy. If you have been paying attention over the last several years then you hopefully have already incorporated an online plumbing marketing strategy into your existing marketing strategy. From social media to content, form paid ads to your website, it’s all relevant these days. As plumbing marketing has taken on more of a digital look these days, there have been some common beliefs about online plumbing marketing that simply aren’t true. Today, we are going to set the record straight.

 

#1 It’s All Digital

One of the biggest plumbing marketing falsehoods is the notion that it’s all digital. And yes, there has been more of a focus on digital marketingas of late, but that doesn’t mean that traditional methods of plumbing marketing are not still going

to be effective. Local ads, radio commercials, TV commercials, newsletters, etc.… are still effective forms of plumbing marketing. Instead of dropping your traditional plumbing marketing strategy for an entirely digital marketing campaign, enhance your existing marketing strategy and incorporate them both. This helps guarantee that no stone is left unturned when it comes to getting the best possible exposure.

 

#2 The Latest and Greatest

When it comes to advances in digital marketing, some are quick to jump on the bandwagon, dropping existing tactics that were actually performing quite well. While we encourage trying out new things to see what works, the operative phrase here is “what works”. If you are having success with one particle avenue, then you should continue to pursue it. Just because a new method or platform comes out does not mean that it is going to be a successful strategy for you. Wait and see, in the meantime continue to put effort and money in the plumbing marketing methods that are delivering results.

 

#3 Keeping Exposure too Narrow

Part of the beauty of digital plumbing marketing is you have a ton of options. While it’s important to stick to what works, it’s also important to make sure you aren’t missing out on any opportunities. Expanding your efforts helps expand your reach. Remember different people gravitate to different platforms. Go where your audience is most likely to be, but don’t be so quite to discredit other platforms. Diversify your efforts to cast a larger net, but also prioritize your efforts so that you are spending the appropriate time and money.

 

#4 The More Traffic, the More Sales

The notion that generating more traffic will result in more sales is easy to believe. However, when it comes to generating more leads and more sales you must have the right traffic. Not everyone that visits your website is going to be the ideal customer. It’s important to make sure that you are being very specific when it comes to targeting your audience. In addition, it is also important to make sure that your website is equipped with the right doors to complete the conversion. Just because you have the traffic does not mean that they will convert. Getting them to your website is only half the battle, it’s up to your website to do the rest. Employ a good organized layout that is appealing and easy to navigate. Use strong call to actions, and make it as easy as possible to locate your contact information.

You will get better results and more visibility for your content.

Quality Counts – Why Quality Content is Driving Search

February 3rd, 2017

 

The subject of quality content has been a hot topic for the last several years. Ever since Google made waves in the digital marketing world by updating their algorithm. Websites that were successfully manipulating search results using black hat SEO tactics were being catapulted to the end of search results or being removed from them entirely. This gave way to more relevant websites that were previously being out-linked a chance to appear at the top of search results. This gave birth to the notion that quality content really matters.

quality contentWhat’s In It For Google

The ultimate goal of Google is to provide users with the most relevant content. Users don’t want to be bombarded with irrelevant content that only achieved status using cheap tricks. The easier it is to find content that is most relevant to their search the better. To improve this process, Google had to make some changes on how it ranked websites. By providing the most relevant search results to users Google is able to maintain their lead as the most trusted search engine, and therefore peddle the rest of their products onto users. With Google easily being the leading search engine they can command more for their ad services because of the amount of exposure they can afford.

The Need for Quality Content

Quality content is not solely exclusive to a blog. Keep in mind however, that a blog that is regularly updated with a common theme in context is more likely to be indexed and deemed more relevant. Quality content also refers to product descriptions and other body text areas of a website. With the way that Google is indexing websites quality content outweighs link building and keyword stuffing any day. That does not mean that there isn’t still a place for link building and keyword usage. Including relevant links within your content can help improve the reader’s engagement by leading them to other areas with relevant content. And keywords help search engines decipher what content is relative.  When it comes to quality content the goal is not just to generate a large amount of traffic, but improve engagement and build quality leads.

 

A quality content strategy, can be time consuming, however it really pays off. Hard work pays off, and when it comes to quality content it usually pays off in organic search results, which are more powerful than anything manipulated.

#2 Create Beautiful Images

Instagram is all about image, literally. So start getting creative with the image that you post. Try different angles, or incorporate trending topics. You don’t have to be a master photographer.

Creating and Implementing S.M.A.R.T. Goals for Your Digital Marketing Strategy

January 24th, 2017

The goals your set for your digital marketing strategy help shape the entire scope of your online identity. There are several things to consider when it comes to creating and implementing goals; think SMART:

Strategic

Measurable

Attainable

Relevant

Time Based

Smart goals for your digital marketing strategy are important to set because they create a realistic road map for you to follow. Without a plan it’s easy to get confused and lose your way.

 

Strategic

Strategic goals go into to detail about the specifics of your digital marketing campaign. To get a grasp of what you are trying to accomplish you need to ask yourself these questions:

digital marketing strategy

Image Credit: Product Management Hacks, https://goo.gl/Xkyn8F

 

  • What are you selling? Your brand, your service.
  • Who are you marketing to? Target audience, ideal customer profile.
  • Where are you going to marketing? Platforms where your audience spends most of their time.
  • How are you going to market? Social media, content, local directories, paid ads.

 

Measurable

Measuring your actions with digital marketing is one of the most important parts of creating a comprehensive digital marketing strategy. It’s important to know what is working and what isn’t working. Regularly checking your analytics and insights reports is how you can measure your successes. Analytics and page insights will provide you a wealth of information about your customers. What keywords they searched for that landed them on your page. How much time they spent on your webpage. What pages generated the most traffic. What site referred the most traffic. This information is particularly useful in generating audience specific content and for generating ads that deliver results.

Attainable

Setting realistic, or attainable goals is just as important as measurable goals. You must be realistic with the goals that you set for your digital marketing. If you set your sights too high you leave room for a lot of disappointment which can be discouraging. If your goals are really ambitious, consider the time frame you allot to meet these goals. It could be that some goals are more appropriately labeled as long term goals. Remember you can create a path to meet these long-term goals with a series of short term goals.

Relevant

In all that you do, you must remain relevant to your business. This means you should focus on topics and areas that are directly related to your industry. Avoid using topics that are popular but have nothing to do with your business. This is misleading and can actually harm your strategy. Instead, incorporate trending topics by tying them into what you do. For example: you can incorporate eco-friendly keywords or phrases by promoting eco-friendly plumbing solutions. A good rule of thumb is to be completely honest in your digital marketing activities. From keywords to making sure headlines and navigation are accurate and not misleading.

Time Based

Time is relevant when it comes to your digital marketing strategy. Allocating enough time to get your tasks done is important, however you don’t want it to feel like a full-time job. Achieving a good ROI for your time and money is part of being

successful with your digital marketing strategy. If you are spending a lot of time and resources but getting nowhere then it may be time to reconsider your approach.

 

Creating smart goals for your digital marketing is a good starting place, or a good start to revamping your plan. One important part of creating smart digital marketing goals is to know when you are in over your head. Its ok to ask for help, in fact it can completely turn your campaign around.

The Best Ways to Use LinkedIn to Build Your Brand – Guest Blog Post From Chris Woodward

Use LinkedIn to Build Your Personal Brand  

Guest Blog Post From Chris Woodward

guest blog post

Chris Woodward, MasterClassMKTG.com

When used effectively, LinkedIn can be a great tool for building a strong network of contacts and staying top of mind as an expert in your field.

 

LinkedIn is typically the first place that most potential clients will go to find out more about you. Also note that your LinkedIn page is often the first result that will show up in a Google search of your name.  

 

I frequently give workshops on how to get the most out of LinkedIn and thought I would share some valuable tips and strategies:

 

Optimize your profile

  • Professional Headline: this is visible everywhere your name appears on LinkedIn. So don’t just use your job title. Instead, highlight your expertise. Good example: “Expert family law mediator.” 
  • Use a professional photo. Enough said. 
  • The Summary section is your elevator speech, your personal introduction. Emphasize the benefits that you deliver, convey your specialty areas, feature the industries and types of clients you serve, and highlight what sets you apart from the competition.
     
  • Prominently feature up to three blog articles at the top of your Profile. 
  • Populate the Skills section with an extensive representation of your skills. Example: “Family law, mediation, divorce, child custody disputes, prenups, asset division.
  • Upload your video to make your profile come alive. 

Build your network  

  • Build the biggest network you can, but don’t invite complete strangers to connect.
  • Research your contacts’ connections to see whom you might invite to connect

Use for research 

  • Be better prepared for meetings by learning more about the participants beforehand.
  • Identify new prospects and study the competition.
  • If there is someone you’d like to meet, search your network for a contact you might have in common to provide a warm introduction. 

Share your expertise 

  • Once or twice a week provide status updates that demonstrate your professional insight. The ratio should be 5:1 educational vs. promotional updates. You want to be seen as a resource and not a promoter.  
  • Expand your reach by joining groups that line up with your professional interests, key referral sources and target clients.

Ask for recommendations

  • Recommendations show that others are endorsing your expertise.
     
  • The best time to ask for one is immediately after you have delivered great results for a client or power partner. 
  • Take advantage of the Endorsements feature. This is an easy way to endorse your contacts for their skills and expertise, and it’s likely that they will return the favor.

 

This business networking site can serve as an invaluable business tool for professionals. So take the time to flesh out your profile, build your network and get active! If you’re interested in an in-house LinkedIn workshop for your team, please give me a call.
 
There are a number of other strategies to keep you top of mind as an expert in your field. Feel free to give me a call at 310.529-6601. I’ll be happy to show you how to take your business to the next level withmarketing strategies that hit the sweet spot with your target clients.

Fast forward a few years, and hashtags have become quite common place, with other social media sites adopting them. Hashtags have proven to be very useful in strengthening a brand, and driving home a topic. The best part about hashtags is anyone can create a hashtag. Focus on hashtags that are specific to your business and make them universal across all your social media platforms.  Use them consistently to create awareness about your brand.

 

Visual Content

Get Your SEO on – Tips to Improve Your SEO

January 11th, 2017

 

improve your SEO

Early Information Science, https://goo.gl/ZCF1ad, 01/11/2017

We are currently at the starting line for the year! While we always encourage self-improvement at any time of the year, this is the perfect opportunity to start improving your plumbing marketing and that means improving your SEO. One of the easiest and most talked about ways to get your SEO on is through content. Content was a big focus last year and will continue to be a big focus this year. As things get more and more competitive it will be an important and deciphering factor in your engagement and your search ranking. Here are some things you can do to improve your SEO.

 

#1 Research Based Content

Research based content refers to content that has been created based on what your audience is in to. If you have been creating content for a while you can go back through your analytics reports and determine what type of content your audience prefers based on the number of clicks, views, and bounce rate. What keywords drive the most traffic? This is all in your analytics reports. This information can help you create more content that revolves around what your audience wants. By creating more of the content your audience craves you improve your SEO.

 

#2 Quality Control

Quality control should always be part of running any type of business. After all you want to make sure that you are offering your customers the very best you can, right? With that being said, quality control also should apply to your plumbing marketing. It’s important to make sure everything works as it’s supposed to. For the purposes of quality control and improving your SEO conduct an internal audit of your plumbing marketing. How quickly does your website load? Does your website convert for mobile users? Is your website easy to navigate? Are all the links on your website correct and operable? These things are important for increasing conversions and to improve your SEO. If the user experience isn’t up to par on your website what is going to compel customers to stick around?

 

#3 Expand Your Niche

Focusing on a niche is a great way to expand your business and improve your SEO. It gives your SEO focus if you will, allowing you to dominate and drive home a solid topic or niche. This allows you to be specific with your target audience and your keyword marketing. Narrowing things down to specifics can really help increase your conversions because you are more focused on quality leads vs the quantity of leads. Niche marketing also helps build your credibility by establishing your authority on the subject matter.

 

#4 Local SEO

improve your SEO

AIChE, https://goo.gl/luf5aB, 01/11/2017

Focusing on local SEOis another way you can improve your SEO. Just like with niche marketing you are narrowing down your audience to a very specific group with the intent of getting higher quality leads that are more likely to become

customers. Part of your local SEO strategy should be dominating your local directories as well as creating geo-specific landing pages particular to the group you are targeting.
