Put together a financial plan for all of your digital outlets.
The cost of your digital advertising campaign will be affected by the methods you choose to employ. The good news is that you don’t need a huge budget at all if you’re focusing on inbound techniques like SEO, social media, and content creation for an already established website. You can spend your time and effort wisely by aiming to produce high-quality content that your target audience will appreciate.
HubSpot’s content management system (CMS) will get you up and running with hosting and content creation. Building a simple website with WordPress on WP Engine and a theme from StudioPress and the code-free Elementor Website Builder for WordPress is a great way to get started if you’re strapped for cash.
There is no denying the cost that comes with outbound methods like paid online advertising and buying email lists. The cost is determined by the desired level of exposure. In order to implement pay-per-click marketing with Google AdWords, for instance, you will need to compete with other businesses in your industry by bidding on specific keywords related to your business. This can range from being relatively cheap to extremely pricey, so it’s important to work on expanding your organic reach as well.
Find a happy medium between free and paid digital tactics.
Including both free and paid tactics into a digital marketing plan is necessary for optimal success. For instance, if you invest in buyer personas to better understand your target market and then use that information to inform the development of high-quality, conversion-focused online content, you can expect to see positive results with relatively little money spent on advertising.
On the other hand, if paid advertising is incorporated into your digital strategy, you may see even quicker results. For more lasting success, focus on expanding your organic (or “free”) reach through content marketing, search engine optimization, and social media. If you are unsure which channels would be best for your brand, try both and adjust your strategy accordingly.
