Your website is home base for your business and a logical first stop for your customers. Make sure it has compelling content, high-quality imagery, loads quickly and is optimized for mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones.
Though many businesses have a presence on social media, they don’t necessarily view it as a strategic marketing opportunity. Most social platforms offer opportunities to reach specific audiences through sponsored or promoted posts. You also have the option of launching an advertising campaign that targets specific user groups based on age, gender, location, interests and other demographic and psychographic criteria.
Blogs can be an effective way to showcase your expertise and perspectives through practical how-to advice articles, progress reports of current projects or case studies of completed work. Blogs are also a great place to feature profiles of your clients and your staff. The most effective blogs are consistently updated with thoughtful content and encourage visitors to comment on posts and share them with their own networks.
E-newsletters and other email communications provide another opportunity to stay in front of your customers and prospects on a regular basis and remind them of your expertise and customer focus. The best e-newsletters provide practical advice and resources for homeowners rather than blatantly marketing the business.
Digital advertising continues to evolve, becoming more customizable and trackable so you can better assess the impact of your marketing investment. Sophisticated geo-targeting ensures an ad is only delivered to individuals who are located within a specific ZIP code or radius around a target location.
