Marketing For Your Business

Facebook Ads

A good way to generate quality leads for your business is by using Facebook advertising … by using it effectively. Just posting an ad on your Facebook page is not gonna do it. We say this because we made the very same mistake early on. You need to use a much more aggressive and technical approach that includes audience demographics such as: age, geographic location, job and/or career & personal interests.

Social Media starts with the word “social” and ends with media. Base your content on “social” aspects by avoiding direct talk about your products & services and using the “benefits or real world stories” shared by your customers instead.

There are several different types of Facebook ads like video ads, lead generation content, canvas ads, etc.; consider experimenting with unique content to help generate click throughs. One of the benefits of working with Online Graphics is that you get our personal take to help you succeed.

You can retarget customers that have already purchased from you or have visited your website. One of the very best methods of generating leads is to build your contact email list.

Think of those ads that caught “your attention” and “why did you click on that ad”? Very often, the image or video used may not even be related to the actual ad itself rather it is simply very engaging. You need to set up a very detailed testing environment, track all metrics and do more of the good stuff and less of the bad. Sounds simple enough … however it can be a very daunting task.

Social Media Branding

When working with your business we normally recommend that you consider using as many social media accounts as possible as long as you can ensure to update each account on a very regular basis. One of the biggest mistakes we have seen over the years is businesses linking to social media accounts that are basically “content dead”. In our efforts to improve your overall online marketing success, we offer a complete set of services to remedy this.

It all starts with branding each of your social media channels (where allowed) with your current company colours and logo. Brand identity is a very important subject that some overlook. Think of some of the major brands like CocaCola, McDonald’s, KFC, etc. … you can see where they are very dedicated to keeping their branding in front of the buying public at all times. It comes down to several factors most specifically familiarity & sub-conscious appeal. Keep your logo in front of the buying public at all times … they may simply click on any given ad or online post simply because they recognize the logo or branding.

Another important factor in your branding campaign is putting forth a professional approach. If your branding differs from channel to channel or site to site, the end user may become confused or get a sense that you are not detailed enough. The “devil is in the details” is as true today as it was when it was first captioned.

Online Graphics has social media branding packages that start at $300 to add custom branding to your Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and GooglePlus channels. Instagram is alone in not allowing for much customization however we will put your logo on all of your uploaded Instagram images using a discrete watermark.

When your website images are picked up by Google (and they will be …) it is great to see your branding on those images and prevents others from “borrowing” your protected and copyrighted content.

Google (SEO) – Search Engine Optimization

Google search engine optimization, one of the specialities of Online Graphics, continues to evolve on a regular basis. While it can be challenging to stay abreast of all the changes with Google one thing remains constant – you should concentrate on creating relative and current content as your most important goal.

Another trending search optimization solution involves your “reputation management”. When you receive a 5 star rating on your website or any social media channel, it is important to share this with Google as soon as possible. We are currently working with a wonderful third party provider who offers some of the very best services to improve and share your reputation online. We would be most happy to share their information with you.

Over the years, we have used a variety of methods to improve our clients’ SEO page rankings and have managed to get many clients appearing on page one of the “SERPS”. One of the very best ways we have found is by using blogging within WordPress. We are very proud to have some very skilled content writers and editors on our team who create 300 to 800 word, keyword rich articles that help promote your business. Combined with eye-catching images or inline videos, these blogs get heaps of airtime and help to improve your ranking by giving you more domain authority.

Online Graphics offers several different monthly marketing packages to help you “get there”. Check us out right here, right now!

Google Adwords (SEM) – Search Engine Marketing

Google Adwords … is one of THE most misunderstood and misused marketing strategies online. Over the years, we have learned how to make Adwords pay off by implementing: A/B testing, calls to action, targeted landing pages, click-funnel lead generation (from the Adwords campaigns) and much more. The most important thing to do within the Google Adwords platform is to select the best possible keywords and keyword phrases (as well as create long tail keywords) while targeting your ads to a very specific demographic. When you link out your Adword ads, you simply must direct these to highly targeted landing pages with a minimum of 3 calls to action in play.

This stuff, while not rocket science, is very challenging and can be beyond the scope of most businesses. Drop us a line to learn more about our services, experience and successes with Google Adwords. Stop paying hundreds of dollars each month on your credit card for expensive keywords that generate very few leads.

Always remember one important thing … our goal at Online Graphics is to “make you money” instead of costing you. In the end, spending a little bit more upfront pays off with leads you can close and improving your bottom line.
