Why Integrated Online Marketing?
The online environment is more competitive now than it has ever been, with more businesses aiming to capture the billions of people searching online every day for different products and services. We believe that to succeed long term online is ultimately about improving your whole business so search engines see that you are an authority in your industry.
Integrating Search throughout your organisation leads to a deeper understanding of your customers. This leads to better products and services being tailored to what your customers want and need.
Integrating Search throughout your organisation helps teams working together to achieve a common goal – increased traffic and sales from Organic Search.
It’s all well and good saying these things, but what about a few examples to illustrate how integrated online marketing can help your business grow.
Example 1 – Call Centre Support / Live Chat Functionality
Do you run a call centre or live chat to support customer queries? Have you ever thought about how Search can be integrated into this area?
What areas or topics are customers continually asking you about? What are their common queries or questions about your products or services? Continually reviewing this can be a fantastic source of information which can help feed into your content plan on your website.
If customers keep asking common questions about a product, then create some content on the website that answers their question. This will lead to a happier customer who now has the information they needed sooner. It will also lead to higher quality content being displayed on your website, which we all know is what search engines are looking for. As an added bonus, this is also likely to reduce call centre costs.
Example 2 – In-Store Staff
Do you have physical stores on the high street or branches customers can visit? Have you ever thought about how Search can be integrated into this area?
Your staff are interacting with customers on a daily basis and will gather a phenomenal amount of information within this time about what customers are looking for when purchasing your product and service. Looking at ways to capture this information then feeding it into your website content plan can be extremely valuable.
What are your customers using the products and services for? What information do they need before making a purchasing decision? What other considerations are they making? All of this information can be understood and utilised to create content on your website. Again, this additional content that helps your customers is also going to help drive additional traffic to your website from Organic Search.
How about your in-store staff encouraging customers to engage online. Encourage them to ‘check-in’ to your store. Encourage customers to review your business after they have made a purchase. Encourage customers to share information socially once they have just made a purchase. The opportunities to integrate offline with online are endless and can seriously help your Search Engine Optimisation strategy.
Example 3 – Marketing Efforts
Do you regularly run TV campaigns, special promotions or competitions to engage your customers? Have you ever thought about how Search can be integrated into this area?
If you are running a TV campaign, then why not integrate this ad on a page on your website then promote this page socially. This will not only increase the reach of the campaign but also help drive additional social shares and backlinks to your website. To generate additional traffic, you could also promote this on YouTube to capture the huge audience that visits the website daily.
If you are running a competition then instead of running the competition on a social platform, why not look at setting the competition up on your website. By promoting the competition page on your website this will help increase the number of backlinks, increase social shares and drive additional referral traffic to your website.
If you are creating a promotional page for a marketing campaign, then why not see if there are any specific keywords that could be targeted on the page. This small tweak can lead to additional organic traffic landing on the promotional page which may even perform better than other channels.
Integrated Online Marketing
Hopefully that gives a few examples of how Search can be integrated throughout your organisation. to help drive awesome results for your business. Integration takes time, effort, collaboration and creativity to make things work better.
