Getting More Out of Digital Marketing

For many businesses, digital marketing is now an essential part of their overall marketing strategy. It starts with an effective website.

A website allows you to promote your products and services at all times to audience locally, nationally and internationally. And a good website allows your business, regardless of size, to compete on a level playing field.

Some of the tactics you could use can be found below. Not all are suitable for every business, you need to work out the mix that's right for you.

Search Engine Optimisation

There are a number of ways you can make sure your pages rank highly in search engine rankings so that more people find your website. This doesn't usually generate large amounts of website traffic immediately but increases steadily over time, often with lasting results.

Pay Per Click Marketing

You can create ads that appear when a user searches for a specific phrase. With the correct setup, this can have immediate results.


You can setup a business Facebook page and add content to this that will engage and interact with users. This could be about showing a ‘human face' to your business, highlighting things like fundraising events your team have done. Or you might, for example, run exclusive competitions for people who ‘like' your page. Facebook advertising can be used to target people based on demographics such as where they live, their age and their interests.


You can use Twitter to send short messages out to people who have an interest in your business. Done effectively, this can build your brand and reputation and help you to promote offers, products and services.
