It’s no secret that the world countries of digital commerce alter fast which is why in this episode I’m going to be breaking down 5 of the ultimate most important digital marketing knowledge you need to master if you want to stay on top of your play. Let’s got to get it! Hey, there my epithet is Adam Erhart, commerce strategist, and welcome to The Marketing Show. Alright, so it really is no secret that the world of digital sell conversions at an absolutely crazy fast pace, and what works today may not work tomorrow, what worked last week might not be working today, and so on and so forth.
This is why it’s incredibly important got to make sure to stay on top of your recreation by consuming material like this, engaging in other people’s material, making sure that you arrange your own programs and your own tactics to the test, and sort of analyzing the data, identifying what works and what doesn’t so that you can stay ahead of the swerve, always getting the best solutions possible.
It’s funny, actually, looking back over my job and over the last many years of doing all kinds of different digital marketing from network intend and SEO, moving through paying ads and social and content program and essentially, just how different the stuff that we’re expending today inside the agency is, compared to the stuff that well-doing 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 years ago. I mean it’s almost completely different now. Attention spans are shorter. There’s new technology.
The course that customers and patients engage with content online, it’s almost completely different. So, the stuff that kind of got you to this point isn’t going to be the things that are going to take you forward into the next decade.
And that’s what this video is all about. Alright, so let’s come things started with what I believe is probably one of “the world’s largest” abilities that you need to master which is: Marketing Fundamentals. Now, I’ve spoken about this before in my what is digital marketing video. If you haven’t seen that more, I’ll make sure to join it up in the cards as well as the specific characteristics below. But virtually, digital sales are just marketing done digitally.
I know, it’s not really profound but at the end of the day, that’s really what it is. This is why it’s really important if you want to succeed with the digital market to make sure that you’re dedicating and allocating a sufficient amount of time to really master the basics of the market, those fundamental principles like situating and differentiation and all the points around branding and how to really build kind of a solid and charming label for today’s date and age.
I truly can’t stress this enough. It is perfectly, essentially, crucial that you understand the basics of commerce and fortunately, formerly you sort of gut these into your organization, once you’ve spent some time learning them and certainly trying to master them, here’s the perfection, this time is going to be really well wasted because human behavior, which is essentially actually what commerce is, is understanding and leveraging different aspects of human behavior, how you are eligible to kind of
I want to say control but essentially, influence the direction and the parties of the decision clear, well, regardless, human behavior certainly hasn’t changed all that much. At the end of the working day, we’re still really parties. This wants, by even understanding the basics of how people work and how they obligate buying decisions, well, you’re gonna be able to apply this information this year, next year, for the next 5-10 probably the next hundred years.
For example, by spending a little bit of age learning about shopper behavior, sell fundamentals, you’ll probably come across the fact that consumers meet buying decisions emotionally, not logically or irrationally, this doesn’t mean that you don’t want to include logical or rational parts, it really means that you want to lead with the psychological position firstly so you can sort of get that buy-in and get that belief and then follow up with the logical and rational elements of your product or services so that you can allow them to justify the decision to themselves and to others.
The charm is that once you understand that one very simple abstraction, it’s really never going to change and it’s going to be able to be applied to all of your future marketing starting it all that much more effective moving forward. If you’d like a bit of a refresh on marketing essentials and essentially, foundational market principles, I’ll make sure to link up a video on that in the cards and in the description box below as well that you can check out right after this one.
Alright, the next skill that you’re going to want to surmount, moving forward, is: to Focus on Conversation Generation. Now, as a die-hard proponent of direct response commerce which is really all about generating those heads and get them to take action as soon as possible, well, a big element or a big switch that we’ve understand lately is sort of a transition from straight-up lead gen to dialogue gen because at the end of the day you can generate all the guides you require but what you probably require are those conversations that are going to lead to bigger and more essentially, buying opportunities for your business.
Now yes, head gen is still very much alive and still very much a part of the stuff that I consult on and the stuff that we do inside the agency. But, “if you’re going to” take your sell to the next level and actually ruler it, you’re gonna want to focus on that next gradation which is essential, turning those contributes into discourses. Now, it’s a little of kind of give-and-take now about what you’re willing to relinquish on the front end and how valuable a contribution is compared to communication and that’s kind of a whole other discussion but what I want to make sure you understand here, is that when you’re structuring your commerce safaris, you really want to think a little bit further down the pour and really concentrate on not just generating that precede but turning it into a conversation.
But, more on pour commerce in exactly an hour here. Now, here’s a little of a prophecy. You determine, over the last couple of times we’ve been determining a ton of people spate the places with result gen services and all sorts of different agencies and consultants offering traffic engender leading making business like rolling Facebook ads or YouTube ads or basically, anything to get causes.
But, where you’ve got an opportunity to really gleam, whether it’s as a business or as a business owner or entrepreneur, is really thinking further than that and again concentrates on those conferences because rendering traffic really isn’t that hard, it truly just comes down to finding the right people that you’re trying to get in front of having the right offer message that you can sort of workaround to make sure it’s inescapable and then choosing the right media source, whether it’s Facebook ads or Instagram ads or YouTube or whatever. So, traffic is pretty much everywhere but what isn’t everywhere is the skill or the art or the ability to take that traffic and actually alter it into a conversation that gets somebody interested in doing business with you.
Alright, so the next skill that you’re going to want to lord is progressing is an aspect that I am referred to a time earlier, which is: Full Funnel Marketing. Essentially, what you want to do here is be aware and be cognizant of the entire customer journey, both, pre-auction and of course post-sale.
But, that’s something entirely different. Preferably, what I actually require you to do is, when you’re running your marketing safaris, think about every step that a patron expectation or possible customer is going to have to take in order to, essentially, become a paying client or purchaser with your business. Now, obviously, this is going to involve some component of pas gen which is that unusually top of the move, that cold congestion, the people that have no idea who you are or what the hell are you do or why they should even care. But, I require you to then take it a stair further and focus on the warm commerce.
You ascertain, basically once you’ve engendered that head, how are you guys gonna take that extend and turn it into an exchange and then for bonus observes, take it a gradation further, how are you gonna take that exchange and move it from heated traffic to hot traffic by actually coming them to make their credit card out of their pocketbook and become a paying customer.
Now, I know that’s a lot of stuff to be considered and if you’ve never genuinely come across marketing funnels or auctions moves before, I appreciate it’s a lot to take up so I’ll make sure to link up a video on marketing moves as well as one on sales moves again in the cards and the description below so you’re gonna be able to check those out right after this video extremely.
The main point that I truly want to leave you with now, though, is that really marketing isn’t siloed or isolated, it’s not just one of the components of either generating traffic or doing induce gen or even engendering exchanges. But very, I miss you to think about the part market funnel from that very first moment that someone goes submitted to you and to your business, all the way through to the point that they become a paying patron or client.
And then again, if you miss even more bonus labels, think about all the touch phases that are gonna happen after they become an actual give client or purchaser, how can you really make sure you extradite a prodigious suffer that’s going to lead to better retention, better patron loyalty, and more ratings and reviews and referrals for your business.
Alright, so the next skill that you’re gonna wanna lord, is probably no surprise and should probably, hopefully, be pretty obvious but it’s worth saying anyway because still not sufficient beings are dedicating the time, energy, and resources to this phenomenally powerful implement and that is Video Marketing.
You ensure, when it comes to marketing your business and when it comes to really build on that know like and trust factor, well, nothing genuinely pulsates face-to-face communication. The ability to sit down, apparently someone in the eye, have a conversation, understand where they’re coming from, and how or if your business is even able to help.
But, patiently going face to face with every single one of your potential prospects or purchasers, well, might be hard, might even be impossible which is where video steps in and it really is the next best thing, because it allows you to not only hear someones enunciate but you can see their face, you can read their facial expressions, you can try to judge, whether they’re coming off as do or sincere or forge and sales kind of slimy.
The other thing with video is that it allows you to build a ton of trust very quickly because again, short of being in person and truly able to read the body language and sounds the inflections and the tone of voice and the style and all that, well, it really is the next best thing in getting all of those sends across. Plus, you’re able to cram in a ton of value and a ton of information very quickly.
For example, if the photo is worth a thousand names, well, then a video might be worth a million words because you’re able to imply all sorts of different nonverbal clues and again, all of those things that come down to style and atmosphere and tempo and so on.
Now, here’s the funny thing with video, if you do not make it already, you probably know you should be doing it and even if you’re already doing it, you probably know you should be doing more.
But, what is it that stops most people from getting involved and genuinely cranking out more video? Well, the answer is pretty simple and it really comes down to this myth or this mistaken belief that everything with video needs to be perfect. Now, this is understandable. After all, we’ve sort of been raised and brought up watching genuinely improved and actually perfected videos through Tv appearances and movies and mostly, any kind of media we investigate on the screen.
But things have changed and essentially, the barriers to entry to creating video, have come way down and we’re really kind of tired and roughly sick of very polished and Hollywood type productions, especially if they’re coming from a business or from the person that you kind of want to engage with.
In fact, in a lot of cases, we’ve done a number of different studies researching a really most produced incredibly expensive video against something shoot with time an iPhone that really is pretty low-grade budget and when it comes to running them as ads against the target market, the low-budget one often precisely perfectly destroys the really expensive high-pitched budget one. Now, this isn’t to say that there’s not age and a location for a really beautiful certainly refined portion of video media.
But it shouldn’t be an obstacle. You shouldn’t cause perfectionism to get in the way of you just really coming out there filming something and publishing it. Plus, the other benefit of video is that you can mess up a whole assortment of substances and then only edit it out. And nobody will ever know. Alright, and moving on to the fifth digital marketing skill that you need to master is Automation.
And after all, there is so much to do and so little time and this is where automation stairs in as a very valuable skill, both for yourself and for your own business. But too, potentially to offer to patrons or customers to help them automate some of their business. Essentially, automation is the offloading or the delegation or mostly squandering implements and technology and software to take care of a lot of the repetitive tasks that you don’t need to be doing, probably shouldn’t be doing, in your business but that still need to get done.
What this wants is that you’re able to get a whole lot more done, a whole lot quicker and in fact, in some cases, you’re able to get a whole lot more done pretty much instantaneously because the automation can be set up ahead of time to just extended behind the scenes and trust me, it’s a lot faster than any human being could ever hope to be.
For example, in one of my marketing business, we can generate a lead for a patron expending Facebook Ads, we can take that leading we can nurture them with SMS and textbook and email and voice mail and essentially, start the conversation from our end and related to the follow-up with an exceedingly strategic kind of automated, follow-up sequence, right up until we get that response and then from there, it gets even further automated so that we can nurture them again and turn that discourse into a full-fledged client.
And we can do this all on behalf of the client without the client needing to lift a finger, which is magic. And that’s the power of automation. It’s essentially, like having a full auctions unit or a full commerce crew or a full appointment define crew or whatever you need to do, working for you 24/7 365 all the time without you needing to do anything formerly that initial wield has implemented in and the automation must be drawn up. But, even if you don’t want to do that reverie with automation, it’s still a valuable thing to the employer and to incorporate into your business and you can still use it to do some basic, but incredibly important things, such as sending out automated email newsletters that go out whenever somebody downloads your steer or buys one of your products.
Automated re-targeting and re-marketing circulars that follow someone around like a sinister stalker. Anytime they tour your website, automated client control that follows up with customers and makes them feel cared for and inspected out for.
Even if it’s a robot doing it. And, parties like robots anyway. Even automated grocery store which yes, is not marketing referred but it still saves me a ton of time. The phase is, that using technology and automating repetition and truly often digesting process this can save you a ton of time and impel you that much more effective and efficient and genuinely getting the work done that needs to be done so you can get back to doing those high leveraging, genuinely valuable acts that are going to drive your business forward.
