  • 5. Fully Integrated Online Marketing Mix With the Internet being such a fast evolving market place, companies online have to permanently test and assess which channels perform best for them in achieving their business outcomes. With this in mind Blackglass develops strategies based on a detailed analysis on which channels are best suited to the client’s target market and offering. This is important as not every channel is relevant to all clients and a lot of time and money can be invested trying to create a market when the budget can be better spent else where.
  • 6. Fully Integrated Online Marketing Mix The first few months are particularly crucial with the requirement for a lot of testing and optimisation. As highlighted in previous sessions today there are so many elements that are crucial to the overall success of a campaign ranging from: Creation of a sound and relevant landing page The content used in the creative and the landing page The communication and key messages Value in the offer (perceived or real) There is no one golden bullet more a combination of a number of ingredients and steps and ongoing analysis and optimisation is the key.
  • 7. Fully Integrated Online Marketing Mix Also crucial to the success of any campaign is “buy in” into the process by the client and setting the right expectations that sales will not just flood in the door once the campaign goes live. Not only is the planning crucial to the success of any marketing campaign but also is having the right platforms and tools to which to: Measure Analyse Recommend Optimise

  • 9. Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) Benefits If done well it is a “free” way to get targeted traffic. Google is undoubtedly the biggest potential source of traffic. Challenges Depending on keyword competition it takes time to see major impact in terms of rankings. It is an ongoing process as Google updates its algorithm regularly. Client should be able to update site: budget / resource. Tools Advanced Web Ranking Interleado
  • 10. Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) Advanced Web Rankings Interleado Great for benchmarking. Full website analysis. Track rankings compared to competitors. Competitor Analysis. Track keywords movement over time. Link building intelligence. Progress reports for your site and competitor sites.
  • 11. Search Engine Marketing (SEM) — Pay Per Click (PPC) Benefits See immediate results. Only pay for clicks to your ads. Targeted Reach - Target customers as they are actively searching for your products. Custom budgeting – specify how much you want to spend, what days of week, what time of day etc. Everything is measurable and everything can be tested. Challenges Need to build some history. The quality of the landing page / website is key. It needs to be closely monitored to optimise ROI by varying keywords, ad copy, landing pages. Tools Google Adwords Yahoo! Search Marketing Facebook Advertising
  • 12. Search Engine Marketing (SEM) — Pay Per Click (PPC) Google Adwords and Yahoo! Search Marketing Strongly keyword based. Capture an actively targeted audience – target people as they are actively searching. Do not have demographic data of searchers (limited information via the Google content network). Facebook Advertising Target people as they are browsing. Target audiences based on location, gender, relationship status, interests and more. Offers greater personalisation. Combines images and text based ads.
  • 13. Email Marketing Benefits Very targeted. Has the ability to generate critical mass in traffic early in the campaign. Dedicated campaigns. Challenges Need to make sure the list is Spam compliant. Enquire about previous results: Open Rates, Click Through Rates. Need to carefully pick your target, subject line. Offer needs to be appealing. Email needs to be very well designed/built. The quality of the landing page / website is key. It is a one off send and can be quite expensive so you want to get it right! Tools Litmus. Traction.
  • 14. Email Marketing Litmus enables us to test emails across all major email clients as well as run a spam analysis.
  • 15. Database Management / CRM The key objective of all our campaigns is to get an action from the customer. At worst we want to encourage email registration so we can capture some details and then have follow up campaigns. Benefits Learn and interpret users interactions to gather intelligence. Leads to more targeting and relevant emails being sent to users. Creates loyalty and retention. Provides an opportunity through refer a friend and viral to grow the database. Provides another avenue to drive revenue. Challenges Need to provide relevant, targeted communications. Need to strike a balance on the right level of emails per month. Keeping track of members usage – open rates / click throughs / opt out etc. Ensure you have a good email marketing platform. The key platform we use is Traction which enables us to achieve all of the above.
  • 16. Social Media Marketing Benefits It is where people are spending time online. In the near future we will no longer search for products and services, they will find us via social media. The best marketing uses an “educational” approach because it adds value and builds trust: in Social Media content must be educational, enlightening or entertaining. Challenges Social Media often meets with scepticism and resistance inside organisations. Promote a product/service while bringing value to the users by building a community. Results are not achieved nearly as quickly as with direct marketing techniques. Is still evolving rapidly and tends to be a moving target. Tools ScoutLabs PeopleBrowsr

  • 18. The Role of Affiliate Marketing Affiliate Networks are a great tool for us as an Agency in driving successful business outcomes for our clients. The two key areas we use Affiliate Marketing is in: Driving Members and Leads. Helping Clients Commercialise their websites. Benefits Provides an instant tool to plug in relevant to our client’s traffic. Safe tactic – provides set number of leads and a fixed cost (which we set as our base line). Great to kick off a campaign – provide quick initial critical mass. Allows to test other more risky media while running an affiliate campaign (best of both worlds). Pay on results but also has element of strong brand awareness across affiliate network. Drives instant revenues for websites independently of the size of their audience.
  • 19. The Role of Affiliate Marketing Challenges Lack of control on where your ads are displayed. In some instances the quality of leads – needs to be monitored. Need to ensure quality of the landing page. Need to have a strong offer that resonates with the Affiliates and their customer base. Need to continually up date offers. Tools Commission Monster.
  • 20. Web Analytics As highlighted previously the key to any successful campaign is measuring / analysing and optimising. Apart from the reporting tools for each channel discussed previously Web Analytics is another important tool. Web Analytics allows you to measure on site analytics to evaluate: The success of your online and offline advertising efforts. Uncover trends and patterns. Almost everything is measurable! Easy to implement. Challenges Free software has some limitations. Cookie based so not exact. Tools Google Analytics Nielsen Netratings Hitwise
