The Internet is the new Yellow Pages, and online advertising is a critical part of all marketing, says Marco Reuter, business development manager at Numero Uno Web Solutions. For brands to succeed online, they need to add a well-optimized advertising campaign to their SEO [search engine optimization] strategy.
According to Reuter, search engines like Google, Yahoo!, and Bing rank sites based on proprietary algorithms rather than the size of an organization, creating a level playing field for all companies. Smaller firms that want to drive traffic naturally can implement a number of strategic online advertising strategies, including blogs, videos, articles, polls, infographics, and various social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest.
While it can take time to see results with organic SEO advertising strategies, pay-per-click (PPC), or paid advertising, can drive quality web traffic in a very short period of time, says Reuter. PPC advertising works on a bidding system, meaning brands only pay for the clicks the ads actually generate. This also means smaller firms have strict control over the PPC campaign, from budget to when the ads are shown and in which geographic regions.
PPC advertising also provides businesses with clear analytical information that can help determine how effective a campaign is. Ineffective ads can be adjusted, tweaked, or closed down.
There are different advertising strategies firms can use to achieve their advertising goals,” Reuter adds. “Businesses that want to use organic channels or implement a PPC campaign need to use an online marketing team with a track record of success.
