Digital Marketing is all about driving the right audience to your website. Here are answers to our most common Digital Marketing FAQs.
Digital Marketing Strategy
A strategy with measurable goals lets you gauge the success of your efforts. Having a plan in place with a certain objective, allows us to track and measure your progress. If for some reason that objective wasn’t met, we can analyze the reasons why and adjust accordingly.
Content marketing is the creation and distribution of relevant and valuable content in your niche to attract your target market. Content is the collective term used for blogs, articles, infographics, videos, images and memes. Distribution of content can on your own website, your Social Media channels, or via third-party channels such as ‘influencers’ blogs, online publishers and directories.
Each content strategist studies their clients business, competitors and market, considering the ‘big picture’ business objectives from the clients, and then develop a content plan which correctly promotes the brand.
Done properly, content marketing helps a business earn trust and credibility, thereby attracting new customers and turning existing ones into brand advocates. The key to success is producing relevant, reliable and consistent content which can be distributed through a variety of channels including blogs, videos, podcasts, social media and digital publications.
Create Valuable Content
Firstly you need to establish and define your goals, target audience and content channels before setting clear and achievable KPIs (so you know what success looks like). You then assess your current position by reviewing all of your content ‘assets’ such as blogs, videos and images to decide whether you can repurpose or whether you need to create new content. This will enable you to create a content gap analysis and decide which content types will work best. You can then create a content calendar which will plan out your campaign.
Content marketing is all about creating and sharing unique content which people actually want to see. It entails communicating and getting in front of your prospects and customers without going for the hard sell. A content marketing strategy is simply the master plan for your campaign.
We recommend a minimum monthly budget of $500, but this can vary as some industries are more competitive than others, leading to higher average costs per click.
First Place Isn’t Promised
Unfortunately, no one can guarantee number one or first page rankings on Google, and you should be wary of anyone who promises otherwise. With constant changes to how it processes and evaluates its results, aiming for a page one ranking on Google can often be a moving target. What you should be looking for is a measurable increase in targeted traffic that drives people actively looking for your products or services to your website. This is what will convert into leads and potential sales, and this is what we focus on for our clients.
SEO is similar to any other form of marketing – what you should spend will always be dependent on your budget, objectives, and what you hope to achieve. The amount you spend will directly correlate with the output of work and timeframe of expected results.
If you have questions regarding budget get in touch and one of our experienced team will be able to talk you through the details.
What is the Value of SEO?
Given a few key metrics such as your conversion rate and average or lifetime sale value, a good SEO agency will be able to forecast your expected ROI based on increases in targeted traffic – this should help you determine whether it is worth it or not.
There is a caveat to this: if a business doesn’t have the budget to afford a reputable SEO company, lacks the infrastructure to deal with an increase in leads and sales, and/or needs results immediately, then working with an SEO company will likely not prove worth it.
The right agency for you will listen to your requirements and objectives, then devise an SEO strategy that helps you achieve your KPIs. They will have experience in your industry or a related field, with past results that prove they are capable of meeting your objectives.

SEO vs. SEM
SEM is an acronym for Search Engine Marketing. It’s the umbrella term for marketing on search engines like Google and Bing, and encompasses both SEO and PPC advertising.
SEO or Search Engine Optimization describes the process of marketing specifically for the organic (free) search results.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) focuses on promoting a website within the organic (free) search results, with the aim of improving its visibility for relevant keywords and terms their target audience use.
Pay-Per-Click (PPC) marketing shows ads to interested users based on keywords, demographics or other targeting. It works as an auction-based system where the advertiser is charged per click on their ad.
PPC advertising is available on a variety of online platforms, including search engines such as Google and Bing, and social networks like Facebook and Linkedin.
SMM (Social Media Marketing) is the process of increasing brand awareness and engagement across different social platforms. You build your business persona and market your services or products on each platform.
