1 to 5 of 15 Digital Marketing Myth Revealed.
Well start with Search engine optimization myths, move to paid social, then look at myths surrounding.
Myth.1: Search engine optimization Can Be Set It And Forget It
We often encounter clients who allocate a particular spending spending budget towards Search engine optimization for a quarter, then simply replicate that spending spending budget in subsequent quarters. (Some also siphon spending spending budget from SEM for per quarter to do SEO and then never come back to their natural efforts.) The idea that Search engine optimization is a onetime job, or a job which requires the identical amount of resources over regular intervals, is a faulty one. Like every other station, it requires more than simply maintenance; it should involve a cycle of testing and restrategizing that may dig reasons to increase (or decrease) resources. Search algorithms change all of the time and Search engine optimization and content plans have to be revisited at least yearly to ensure they're effective.
Myth.2: I Will Purchase A Tool For My In House Search engine optimization Group, And They'll Be Golden Tools are great for efficacy and automation. However they can not replace human ability, intuition or foresight. I've seen instances where in house teams that are too heavily reliant on tools become pigeonholed in a vertical, which actually leads to a narrow view and lost understanding of the general space.
Myth .3 (One Of Our Favorites): Search engine optimization Is Dead Search engine optimization as a discipline looks a lot different and varied today than it did back then; it so considerably more interdisciplinary, and only keyword optimization and proper site architecture wont get you as far as it used to. However its also grown to integrate hugely important initiatives such as UX, speed of conversion optimization and Click through rate optimization.
Myth .4: Social Is A Top Of Funnel Channel Yes, this was the belief (and kind of the truth) for many years. Today, thanks to incredibly improved targeting, ad forms and accessible data on platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, you can make social a bottom of the funnel direct response station. For many brands, social is the largest driver of new customer acquisitions and customer retention. Social is about people based marketing; it allows you to reach the right people at the right time with the right message.
Myth.5: Social Can Only Work For A Few Select Industries Social can be an efficient station for any business. That said, not all of social stations have been created equal, and you shouldn't put equal focus on each channel. In the event that you're a Business to business company with a very technical support offering, for example, Pinterest and Instagram aren't stations to concentrate on; look at Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. The same is true if your brand is on the other side of the spectrum if you're a Business to consumer online fashion retailer, LinkedIn is not the station for you. But both ends of the spectrum include social stations that, implemented intelligently, can provide return.
