  • Your name, business, and the one thing that motivated you to come today? If too many, one from each table
  • Looking at a couple of elements that will help you develop an online marketing plan. This is specific to your online activity, don’t forget about your offline marketing plan and combining the two together
  • A typical online plan needs to consider a range of tactics to suit the audience that you are tyring to engage. Things that we consider in our plans include (go through each bubble)

    Green boxes the process for each bubble

    A lot of people are focused on getting a website/FB page and not focused on the components or outcome of what they want to achieve
  • But before we can do all of these things, we need to know who is your digital customer. And how they want to receive information and be engaged with online.
  • These questions will inform the platforms eg are your ideal potential leads more likely to want to engage with you on FB or LinkedIn or Twitter or email marketing or your website or ebay store……
  • Change to Justin
  • How do you do this?
  • Google yourself, your competitors and keyword phrases that you think your ideal customer would use to find you or your product. Number of sponsored ads.
  • Keywords are not just single words

    How many is too many?
  • And it is always changing!!! E.g. In the last few weeks Google announced that websites with SSL certificates (i.e. https sites) will help with your ranking. Mobile sites May
  • 1. Get your site found - Target the Right Keywords
    Keyword research and analysis is the most important part of an SEO campaign. It is the process of identifying the terms that search engine users are typing to find a product or service within a particular industry. Consider that keywords are like the index for the internet – you need to ensure that your product is listed under the correct words. Tourism operators should use keyword research to discover which keywords to use in the webpage content.
    2. Write Quality and meaningful Content
    Ensure that the text that you have on your website is quality content that tells the reader exactly what they want to know. The higher the quality of your content the higher the chances are of other websites linking to it (as well as search engines). This is also important not only for search engines but for getting the right message across to consumers.
    3. Get Techy - Optimise Page Title, Headings, Metadata, Anchor Text
    By ‘tweaking’ a number of the technical elements of your page you can get better results in search engines. Use the primary keyword followed by any secondary keywords in the webpage title; place company branding last. Write a description of the page, the metadata description tag is displayed in search result listings and compels people to click through to your site. In addition, include each keyword the page is targeting in the metadata keywords tag.
    4. Optimise First Paragraph and Body Copy
    The first paragraph on the page should include the primary keyword the page is targeting. This keyword should then be sprinkled through the remaining paragraphs of text on the page, naturally, and any secondary keywords should also be used in the copy of the page.
    5. Search engines can’t read pictures
    Search engines index words and text. Pictures only tell a thousand words for people, not computers. You need to ensure that all of your pictures are labeled and have ‘ALT’ tags. These are the web labels for your photos that display if the photo itself doesn’t show up.
  • Have to start a campaign and provide your credit card details but you can switch campaign off right away. Until you’ve done that the tool bar wont appear. Sneaky trick, enter your competitors into the keyword planner to see what keywords they are using on their site.
  • Own personal media monitoring service online for free. Look for yourself, business, competitiors…

  • We will see the older demographics grow in % as they become more comfortable with technology but it’s the under 25’s who will be growing up not knowing any different.
  • Explain the process online and the different moving parts and costs involved
  • Stores aren’t always just so people buy online – they also play a vital role in the research process
  • A simple way to look at the questions that need to be asked to establish your ecommerce needs. Based on the 4 p’s of marketing and turned into an ecommerce version
  • A platform is an individual instance of your site, your domain and you control it – this is the most common way to think of your own store/ecommerce – website

    Market places such as ebay /etsy are alternative ways to setup a smaller store with less cost and overheads – but your forgo the ability to customise and improve it.

    Some people have both – marketplaces are like shopping centres and platforms are like stores. Often you will see people having to but it takes more time and resources to manage.
