Mediocre content is no more appealing so companies must focus on writing content that is emotive and measurable and which inspires readers to act. Also, one must make sure that they are placing the link on the site, or to a social media handle, where people can easily access it.
2. Pay-per-Click (PPC): The general idea behind PPC is that it enables one to reach a targeted audience faster by specifying who will view the advertisements. This can be done by either entering specific keywords or demographic characteristics, and one will only pay when someone performs on their ads. PPC can be helpful for sites that do not rank high organically; businesses can buy one of these ads so that they get Page 1 ranking.
3. Video Marketing: Videos catches attention quick, and therefore it becomes necessary for companies to put their businesses in a place where the eyeballs are. Creating a video about product or service description and posting it on the homepage, or sharing it via any social media handle can assure that the site gets the substantial traffic.
4. Mobile: Half of all the searches are done on mobile devices. By mobile-optimizing a site and checking out mobile marketing options, one can put their business in the sweet spot of search. Mobile marketing is growing as it is providing customers and potential customers with personalized, time-and-location sensitive information. Users are spending a more significant amount of time engaged with their devices, and therefore one can expect this trend to rise in the future, so get ready!
