  18. 18. SEARCH ENGINES A program that searches for and identifies items in a database that correspond to keywords or characters specified by the user, used especially for finding particular sites/resources on the World Wide Web. 18 A search engine is really a general class of programs, however, the term is often used to specifically describe systems like Google, Bing and Yahoo!
  19. 19. Search Engine Marketing  Search engine marketing, which is perhaps more commonly referred to by its acronym “SEM”, is a term that describes processes that can be taken to help gain visibility and traffic to the products or services or web sites as a whole on search engines result pages(SERPs)., primarily through paid advertisements.  Search engine marketing is a very broad term that refers to a number of other different activities, such as: 19  Search engine optimization (SEO)  Managing paid listings in search engines (primarily pay per click, or PPC)  Social media marketing  Search retargeting  Submitting sites to search engine directories  Describing the development of many different online marketing
  20. 20. Search Engine Marketing  There are millions upon millions of websites on the Internet, many of which may be similar to yours, sell the same products as yours, and may be a competitor of yours.  Through all of the above methods – SEO, PPC, social media marketing, search retargeting, etc. – you are allowing your website to stand out and scream, “HEY! I’M WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR!”  All of the above methods are ways that increase your ranking in search engines so that rather than being on the last search result page of Google or Yahoo!, you’re on page 5, 3, or possibly even page 1. 20
  21. 21. Search Engine Marketing  If you do a search in Google, the left-hand side results are natural, organic listings that will appear when a certain keyword is entered into a search query.  On the right hand side are the paid advertisement results that are linked to that keyword, like the Pay Per Click advertisements.  Both of these are essential in driving traffic to your website, especially both organic listings and paid listings (i.e. listing your site to search engines’ directory) are a very economical way to get people to your site. 21
  22. 22. Search Engine Marketing  Concept of SEM is simple: when a customer or a business person searches the web through either a text box or by clicking through a directory hierarchy, he/she is in hunt mode. This psychological state is unique because it signals to the search engine (and to marketers) that the person is looking for the information, often of a direct or indirect commercial nature.  To put it simply, SEM is anything that you can do to help improve your site’s ranking in search engines, like Google or Bing, as well as the amount of traffic you receive from those search engines.  This is particularly important, as over 70% of all new visitors will find your website just by performing a search query through a search engine. 22
  23. 23. Search Engine Marketing | Tips • If you want to be successful in SEM, then you need to come up with a plan. Some points to consider are:  Who is your target audience? You need to do your research and find out who will actually want to visit your website before you really delve into your SEM plan.  Update your site or blog regularly!  Get yourself some quality tracking software, and continue to track your site’s performance.  Continuously test your keywords and see which ones work best.  Always add fresh content to your site(avoid plagiarism), and continually improve your web design. 23
  24. 24. Search Engine Marketing | Tips  Get the proper tools. Keyword analysis tools to find how well certain keywords are performing is obviously of the utmost importance, but other tools like web analytic tools and HTML tools are important, too.  Begin building partnerships with people on blogs, forums, and other websites and start building up your links. This will give you a great boost in the search engine rankings  Expand beyond your website. Do some video marketing or vlogs and post them on YouTube. Put pictures up on Flickr. If you don’t have a blog, get one. And submit articles to article submission sites, like eHow and About.com. Add a link to your website along with each of the above. 24
  25. 25. Search Engine Marketing To conclude:  Search Engine traffic is non-intrusive method of marketing.  Searchers are on a mission- “It’s just in time marketing”.  Search Engine Traffic originates from voluntary, audience-driven search behaviour.  Audience-driven means that the visitors to your business from search engine result page link have not only selected your content from among your competitors/peers but also their search query that resulted in your content being shown. 25
  26. 26. SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING(SMM)  Social media marketing (SMM) is a form of Internet marketing that utilizes social networking websites as a marketing tool.  The goal of SMM is to produce content that users will share with their social network to help a company increase brand exposure and broaden customer reach.  Some examples of social media sites and applications include Facebook, YouTube, Del.icio.us, Twitter, Digg, blogs and other sites that have content based on user participation and user- generated content (UGC). 26
  27. 27. SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING  Social Media Marketing seeks companionship with customers that have similar interests via social media avenues so as to develop a long lasting relationship and as a result, drive more revenues.  There are a wide range of Social Media tools, websites and resources available…from the highly visible and popular such as Facebook and Twitter through to niche communities such as Stumbleupon or Digg…each with their own nuances and requiring a unique finesse.  To succeed, you need an overall Social Media strategy, a tactical plan and a Social Media partner who can help guide and implement the Social Media component of your broader marketing plan. 27
  28. 28. SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING  SMM seek to develop and integrate marketing concept with other approaches to influence behavior that benefit indeviduals and communities for the greater social good.  SMM practice is guided by ethical principles.  It seeks to integrate research, best practice, theory, audience and partnership insight to inform the delivery of competition sensitive and segmented social change programs that are effective, efficient, equitable and sustainable. 28
  29. 29. SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING  SMM can help with the no. of goals, such as:  Increasing website traffic  Building conversions  Raising brand awareness  Creating a brand identity and positive brand association.  Improving communication and interaction with key audiences.  Only by establishing these goals can you measure your social media ROI. 29
  30. 30. SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING | TIPS  Planning: building SMM plan is essential. Consider keyword research and brainstorm content ideas that will interest your target audience.  Content is King: When it comes to Social Media Marketing, Content will be everything. Make sure you are offering valuable information that your ideal customers will find interesting. In addition to classic text based content add videos, images, and infographics.  Consistence brand image: Core identity of your brand should remain consistent across all social media platforms including Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, StumbleUpon, Google Plus and so on. 30
  31. 31. SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING | TIPS  Blog: Blogging is a great SMM tool that lets you to share a wide array of information and content with readers. Your company blog can also serve as your social media marketing blog, in which you blog about your recent social media efforts, campaign, contests and events etc.  Links: If other sources provide great, valuable information you think your target audience will enjoy, don’t hesitate to link them. Such links will improve trust and reliability, and you may even get some links in return.  Track competitors: It’s always important to keep an eye in your competitors- they can provide valuable data for keyword research, where to get industry related links, and other SMM insights. If your competitors are using other social media then do the same with better approach. 31
  32. 32. SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING | TIPS  Measure Success With Analytics: Without tracking data, you won’t be able to measure success of your SMM campaign. Google analytics can be of useful tool for analysing and tracking your campaign. Also, attach tracking tags such as #HashTags to your SMM campaign so that you can properly monitor them. 32
  33. 33. EMAIL MARKETING  Email marketing is directly marketing a commercial message to a group of people using email. In its broadest sense, every email sent to a potential or current customer could be considered email marketing. 33  Broadly, the term is usually used to refer to sending email messages with the purpose of enhancing the relationship of a merchant with its current or previous customers, to encourage customer loyalty and repeat business.  It helps in acquiring new customers or in convincing current customers to purchase something immediately, and companies can also add advertisements to email messages sent to their customers.
  34. 34. E-MAIL MARKETING  Along with the power of email comes the abuse of email, commonly known as spam.  Is spam email considered marketing? Technically, the answer is probably yes, but it is certainly not responsible email marketing.  Email spam is actually a major threat to legitimate email marketers, as a it could make the entire email medium less effective. 34

  38. 38. LEGAL ISSUES WITH ONLINE MARKETING Three key legal issues that online marketers should know: 1. Privacy and Data collection 2. Intellectual Property 3. Advertising 38
  39. 39. 1. Privacy and Data Collection  It may seem simplistic to point out that before you can send marketing emails or messages, you need to collect the contact information of your customers or potential customers.  Yet, the actual process of collecting the information is far more complex than it seems, particularly if you’re trying to collect it in a legally compliant manner.  Most jurisdictions around the world have privacy legislation in place that requires you to notify people before you collect their personal information. 39
  40. 40. 2. Intellectual Property Rights  The next legal issue to consider as a marketer is intellectual property. First, you want to protect your own intellectual property, such as trademarks and copyright.  Second, you want to ensure that you don’t infringe on the intellectual property of others.  Let’s take a look at the main types of intellectual property protection are a. Trademark b. Copyright 40
  41. 41. a. Trademark  If you are sending out marketing emails or contacting people with flyers or advertisements, the first thing you will need to protect is your brand or logo.  Registering a trademark gives you the exclusive right to use a specific word or words, name, design, or logo in connection with specific goods or services. It is valid for 10 years and is renewable if certain requirements are met. 41
  42. 42. b. Copyright  If you use original marketing language on your website or text in emails, you may want to copyright that text. Copyright relates to authorship of original works, including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, architectural, and a broad range of other works.  If you work with any third parties who write your marketing copy or text for you, ensure that their work is checked for plagiarism. You don’t want to infringe on someone else’s copyrighted work when sending out your emails or newsletters. 42
  43. 43. 3. Advertisement  Advertisements and marketing messages must not mislead consumers or unfairly affect consumers’ behavior or decisions about the product or service.  Unfair or deceptive advertising is prohibited, which means that any marketing must tell the truth and not leave out any relevant information that a consumer would be interested in.  Be careful with any comparative advertising or marketing. If you don’t compare products fairly and transparently, you may be breaching advertising standards.  Check the wording of your marketing messages carefully and ensure that someone outside of your marketing team (such as someone from your legal team) has a quick look at what your message is saying.43
