As difficult as it might be for an individual to create a marketing strategy, we suggest reading through the shortlist of steps down below that will help you in your journey towards the most effective marketing strategies you will ever come up with.
There is a massive load of Internet articles telling you how you can come up with the perfect buyer personas, but we’ll sum up the most basic things you should follow right here.
1) Know your target audience.
Whether you do your business on or off the Internet, you need to know your audience. We’re talking about the customers you actually want to sell to, and you can create your target audience via research.
Don’t be afraid to interview people you might think will make the perfect target audience. Now that you know who you should interview, it’s time to think about the type of information you should gather. Here are some of the most common points to watch out for:
– Demographic information.
You want to focus on the location, age, income, and the job of each individual. The best tool to help you sort out the location is by far Google Analytics, as it can easily identify what country your visitors are coming from. As far as the age goes, it can be both relevant and irrelevant. This data is mostly gathered via a customer database. The best way to gather job titles is to compare them with your own business and then find a good middle point. The income is something we don’t recommend focusing on because it’s sensitive information.
– Psychographic information.
This is where you set up your goals, challenges, hobbies, and interests. The best technique of accumulating all this data is by speaking directly to customers and salespeople. This task will get you the list of all the problems people are currently facing. You’ll also get an insight into where you can step in and make things better.
2) Estimate your digital marketing channels.
This is when you first consider what needs to be avoided, and what needs to be embraced. You need to make the difference between the media you own (the website and social media pages) and the ones you don’t – the earned (PR) and the paid media (Google AdWords). Gather all of this to have a clear picture of the things you can work with. The best practice is to mix up all three types.
3) Bring it all together.
After the planning and the research, you finally have a vision of where to go and what to do. Now is the perfect time to create a solid document with your entire digital marketing strategy. Make sure to map out every action you wish to take, and you’ll be on your way to making a profit with your business!
There is no strategy template one-size-fits-all because businesses come in all different shapes and sizes, so remember – all you need is a set of actions that your business needs to achieve those goals you’ve been dreaming about. Make it realistic and make that strategy worth it!.
