- Spread The Message
You can write a compelling sales message directly or in a subtle way. If you have your own intellectual property to flaunt, then there’s nothing more powerful. Instead of using a third party’s website to publish your blog posts, you should create a blog or news section on your site to drive more traffic, comments, and participation. And then share this information on social networking sites to promote the post.
- Use Pull Marketing
Chuck out those hard and direct marketing sales messages. They should better be used only in pay per click ads. As for the rest, think of messages or concrete info graphics which combine words and images to connect with your audience. Present your product or service as a solution for their problem. For example: – if you sell hair tools and accessories and are planning to target females between the age group of 18-25 who love styling hair, then explain to them how your product can be beneficial for their hair. Tell the USPs in a subtle way; explain how they can maintain the good health of their hair without damaging their wallets.
- Build Relations
Write for your audience and not for yourself, especially if you are posting something on a company’s blog, Facebook page or the like. For your personal thoughts, use your personal social networking profile to make sure the two don’t get confused for one in the same. Also, let your audience express their views on the specific topic. And as they say, anything said directly from the horse’s mouth adds more value. This may also include some of your trustable, recurring and satisfied customers.
In the quest to earn more backlinks don’t diverge from the topic and avoid adding unnecessary keywords in your text. Neither the search engines, nor the users entertain such activities.
In essence, be the voice of your audience and let them become the voice for your brand. If your users start speaking and feeling good about your brand, your online marketing campaigns will automatically improve.
