Measure Your Successes

Before you move forward with your end of year marketing strategy, it is important to take a look at your marketing successes for the year. What worked? What didn’t work? Afterall, you want to spend your time and money where it counts right? Since we only have a short while until the end of the year, you want to put forth your effort and your resources into areas that are going to deliver the biggest ROI. Some things to consider:

 

  • What platforms deliver the most traffic?
  • What type of content archives the most engagement?
  • Which keywords are the most effective?
  • How is your conversion rate?
  • What type of ads deliver the biggest ROI?

 

Up The Ante With What Works

Once you have answered the above questions, you will know what areas to focus on. If Google Service ads are your jam, consider increasing your budget. If most of your traffic is coming from sites like Facebook, consider boosting some fresh content. The point is, do more of what works best.

 

Spread A Little Holiday Cheer

As far as end of year marketing tips go, spreading a little holiday cheer makes a lot of sense. Tie the holidays into your marketing strategy. The holidays are always really busy for home service companies because of the extra entertaining that goes on. Use this to your advantage. 

 

Run A Promotion

Again, since the holidays are such a busy time, and with all the black Friday sales and cyber Monday deals, it makes sense to offer a promotion. This helps generate engagement with your brand by giving something back to your customers. A promotion can help make existing customers feel appreciated and incentivizes new customers to become repeat customers.

 

Be Social

This ties into your engagement on social media. Engage with your customers on social media. If they comment, comment back. Acknowledge them. This doesn’t cost a thing, and helps build and strengthen your brand. People like to feel like they are dealing with real people, especially during this technological era. If you up your engagement efforts online, you will find your engagement scores improve.

Advertising with Facebook is a great way to reach your audience. With millions of active users, Facebook provides an place for your to reach a mass amount of potential customers.

Image is Key

Since on of the first things that people will notice in your Facebook ad is the image your use, it is important to select good visuals.

Call to Action

Your call to action plays right into clear communication. Your Facebook ad needs to be compelling and command people to click on it. This can be done with images or text. A combination of a strong verbal call to action, mixed with a strong supporting image is the best recipe for success. Make sure you call to action effectively communicates what it is you are selling and what you want people to do.

Getting the Best ROI for Your Visual Content

November 5th, 2015

 visual content

Previously we discussed the importance of implementing visual content into your content strategy. Visual content can help increase your conversions because it appeals to a lot of people. In fact the demand for more visual content is actually increasing. There will always be a place for written content, it helps with your search ranking and SEO, and sometimes it helps explain things a little better. However not everyone takes in information the same. For those of us that are more visual learners visual content is very effective. Here are some things to consider when developing a visual content strategy.

 

Creating visual content is going to take some investment. Either investment of time or investment of money. You want to make sure that your visual content is worth your investment. Consider the ROI. Is it worth it? If you haven’t tried it, then how do you know? Are you measuring your success? An important step in determining your ROI is consulting your analytics reports. You won’t know how effective a particular campaign is without measuring the results somehow.

 

Maintaining your brand is another important part of visual content. Visual content is actually a great way to strengthen your brand, so make sure you incorporate your brand into your visual content. Which ever area you are focusing on, be it video, infographics, or images make sure its a good fit. Not all areas with work with your brand and that’s okay. Simply putting out a meme because they are popular is the wrong approach. Be authentic, be relevant. Don’t force something, let your visual content be a natural part of your brand.

 

When it comes to visual content it doesn’t all have to come from you. Include other people on your team. You may be surprised by the level of creativity others might have. A different perspective can be very useful in creating a strong visual content campaign. Letting others assist with your visual content also helps free up a little of your time and gets others involved in the work that effects them, which leads to better employee engagement, which then leads to a better customer service experience for your customers.

 

When creating visual content:

 

  • Do get creative

  • Do use a variety

  • Do incorporate your brand

 

  • Don’t use a bunch of stock images

  • Don’t overuse, remember too much of a good thing is actually a bad thing

  • Don’t use long videos
