Targeted Advertising is Changing the Game

Targeted Advertising is Changing the Game for Small Business Owners Post-Pandemic.

SMEs have faced many challenges throughout the Coronavirus pandemic.

Many have had to rely on government support such as the furlough scheme and are keen to turn a profit again after months of heavy losses.

The terrain has been tough and some, sadly, have not survived.

Others have been able to use technological innovations and harness their own grit and ingenuity.

These business owners have navigated choppy waters, pivoted, and must now become even stronger as we enter the post-pandemic era.

Yet, throughout all of this, the latest research shows that the biggest concern for SME owners – in the long and short term – is attracting new customers.

Targeted Advertising is Changing the Game

The problem of how to attract new customers is not a new or unique. The potential solutions have evolved rapidly, however, and will continue to do so.

Technological innovations have changed the game within digital marketing, search engines and social media.

We have opportunities now we could only dream of before.

ROAS

SME owners think carefully about Return on Ad Spend (ROAS).

Word of mouth and referrals beat every other form of advertising.

Reputation is karma, and in business good karma means profit.

We think of word of mouth as being ‘free’ but In reality it is an unexpected return on a shrewd investment made years ago.

Word of mouth takes time to build and is almost impossible to predict or track.

Targeted Means Targeted

When we say targeted, we mean targeted.

You can select your audience based on where they live, how old they are, whether they’re male or female. Or you can select Content you want to be featured with, such as Money or Health.

Or you could target your audience based on Content and Demographics at the same time.

You can even choose the device they’ll see your ad play on – or whether you want to use a static creative or video.

The possibilities are almost endless.

Results

As all SME owners know: nothing is guaranteed and we have to be on top of our game.

The quality of your creative matters (we can help with this if you need it), the quality of your work and your local reputation matters.

There is more to running a successful business than a clever advertising campaign.

But a clever advertising campaign sure helps.

Every Penny Counts

SME owners think differently to heads of large corporations.

Business is personal for us.

You would like to know what you could expect, naturally, since no one can guarantee the results of any campaign.

You’re interested in the costs, of course.

You’re also interested in the value.

You’d love to see some results typical of those our clients have achieved.

Dive in and get comfy with our indispensable guide to success.

Digital Real Estate

Digital Real Estate is an investment that can go up or down in value.

Digital marketing has been growing exponentially for for 20 years and shows no sign of slowing down.

Thanks to the awesome power of the Internet, it’s never been easier to find a niche and bring your idea to market. Most business now have some digital real estate, whether that’s a blog, a website or a presence on one or more social media platforms.

Like any real estate, these require regular maintenance.

They can work incredibly hard for you or become a drain on your time and money.

Digital Brand Identity

We live in a digital world where your clients and customers might not speak to you in person or hold the product in their hands before buying. Everything they use to make a buying decision will be influenced (for better or worse) by digital marketing.

This is good news in many ways, it’s easier to set up an e-commerce site than it is open an office or a store, but if it’s easier for you, it’s easier for your competition too.

Setting up is relatively easy to achieve, it’s doing it really well that is challenging.

If you don’t know where to start, start anywhere. #digitalmarketing #businessonline #makeitmostvaluable

Digital Marketing Research

How to Do Your Own Research

Use social media and search engines to see what people are saying about similar products.

Our favourite tool at the moment is Answer the Public they have a free version too!

Look at the customer reviews, is there room for improvement?

Look at the prices: their margin could be your profit.

Audience

If you did your research thoroughly, you will have some really good insights into who your audience (customer base) is, where they hang out online and what other things they’re interested in.

While there are many apps and programs which can deliver audience insights, our Most Valuable advice is to spend time on the platforms, watch the conversations developing, follow the hashtags.

This will give you real insight and improve your foresight too.

Digital Content Marketing

Content Marketing is key to the success of any digital campaign in 2021

Your logo, palette and branding must be instantly attractive and speak to your product and brand values.

Customers make up their minds very quickly online and you won’t get a second chance to make a first impression.

Content (copy, images, video or animation) must be informative, persuasive and entertaining. The importance of having everything looking and working perfectly online cannot be over-stated.

We recommend Canva and Adobe for creating content.

Test

Search engines and social media platforms are brilliant forms of communication. You have a global presence which is open for business 24/7 and 365 days of the year.

They are also incredibly good at collecting data and delivering insights so you can track in real time whether your audiences respond more to information, aspirational images or even the dreaded inspirational quote.

All of these tools are available for ‘free’ but you will need to invest time and attention to detail in order to get it right.
