    When you begin building your online marketing strategy from scratch, start by answering these three questions:

    What is my goal?
    What strategies will help me achieve these goals?
    What marketing tactics and campaigns will help me achieve these strategies?
    A goal is set, strategies can be changed along the way, and tactics are what you use to make these changes.

    Let’s move ahead.

    Now that you’ve thought of these questions, consider the following aspects to get the right answers:

    Who is my target audience?
    What marketing channels am I going to use?
    How will I use these channels?
    How will I make money from my online marketing strategy?
    Once you set your goal, the marketing plan to achieve it, and have built an online presence, it’s time to start executing online marketing strategies for small businesses. Don’t just make your presence felt, make your brand unforgettable.

    Let’s dive straight in.

    Content marketing

    Content marketing is content with a purpose. Depending on the goal you set for your online marketing strategy, you can tweak your content marketing initiatives to drive more sales, increase brand awareness, get more sign-ups, increase downloads, boost conversions, or attract more traffic to your website. You can use different mediums of content to get the results you’re aiming for, such as a blog, video, or helpful guides. It’s a versatile online marketing strategy that can be used in different ways, with the right content for your existing and potential customers.

    Search engine optimization

    Search engine optimization (SEO) enhances the visibility of your small business on search engines. How well your website ranks is a combination of the technical structure of your website and the content that you use on it.

    Optimized conversions

    You get a lot of traffic to your website and you rank high on search engines, but the ultimate goal is conversions, right? With an online marketing strategy aimed at optimizing your conversion rate, you can add more opportunities for conversions, or hone on the ones that already exist.

    Social media marketing

    Social media marketing holds immense potential, for those who build an online marketing strategy and align their social media initiatives to it. Building an audience of prospective customers on social media requires patience and great content.

    Email marketing

    Email marketing brings amazing results for a small business. You can increase traffic to your website, boost sales, and drive continuous communication between your business and your customers through emails and marketing automation.

    Finalizing the fine details of an online marketing strategy

    We’ve come a long way.

    We have built an online presence, we know how to get started, and the points to consider. Now it’s time to take a fine-tooth comb and get to the root of it all. Remember, we are still in the strategizing phase. When we make an online marketing plan, we work our way down the line from goal to the foundation.

    When we get to the execution part, it works its way upwards – from the smaller and finer details, leading up to the top, the ultimate goal.

    Okay, so we have the broader aspects of our online marketing strategy in place. It’s time now to further explore the marketing tools that contribute to the success of our plans.

    Get local

    Optimizing your small business with local listings gets you great traction online. Local search marketing puts you on the map and allows people around you to find your business when they search for relevant products or services.

    Link building

    Working with other local businesses, bloggers, or influencers to link to your website informs search engines that your website is relevant and popular. Work with local news sites and other websites to help you enhance your link building initiative.

    Keyword research

    Using the right keywords boosts your online marketing strategy and helps you beat online competitors in search engine results pages. With proper keyword research, you know the exact words and phrases that people use to find services and products relevant to your small business. Use these keywords on your website pages and all other content that you create to reach out to people.

    Build email lists

    Buying an email list is completely off the table. Email marketing only works when people willingly share their email addresses and say yes to receiving emails from your business. A website pop-up, social media ads, lead generation ads, and physical lists at stores or events can build your email list organically.

    Track online reputation

    Keeping track of the online reputation of your business is a must to know what people are saying about you so you can respond properly. Setting up alerts for your business online can instantly find the people talking about you. It’s also a wonderful way to get first-hand feedback from customers and strengthen your online marketing strategies.

    Event marketing

    Setting up events, offline and online, gets more leads and allows you to interact with both your existing and potential customers. You can create a Facebook event page to let people around you know about it and get more attendees.

    Align your online marketing goals, strategies, and tactics

    1) Create and publish great content. What you say about your business matters as people need to know what you are offering!
    2) Have a blog and constantly update it with articles that will benefit your business marketing.

    5) Print hundreds of name cards and pass it to anyone you meet. Every card that is passed means the more people learn about you.
    6) Giveaway printed balloons of your company name at events or even leave them on cars (am sure you have at least once got a balloon left on your car)
    7) Give free classes or workshops about your products or services
    8) Use social media to market. Social media is a powerful tool for marketing, you have Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and many more to choose from
    9) Develop business partnerships and do cross-promotions with them or other businesses
    10) Learn what are the biggest blunders and improvise them

    I hope this 10 marketing strategies will help boost your small businesses. All the best!

    Being a small business, you face tough competition from large businesses to survive and strive in the market. It doesn't matter if your products and services are way better than those of big businesses.

    1) Optimize your website and content for voice search.

    2) Don’t skip out on Email Marketing. You aren’t going to get far with your audience if you don’t know who they are and you aren’t making an effort to communicate on a personal level.

    3) One of the most important marketing strategies, especially for small businesses is SEO. SEO is the process of optimizing your website to make it easier for search engines, like Google, to read. Making small changes and using keywords can help you rank higher on the search engine page. The higher you rank, the more opportunity you have to drive traffic to your site. Thus, the more profitable you can become.

    4) Content Marketing. This should also be at the center of your marketing strategy. Content Marketing is the process of creating and published quality content relevant to your target audience. Create your content to fit your audiences wants and needs. Unlike paid media metrics, content marketing focuses on the long-term by building trust with your audience, promoting a positive brand image and creating relationships with your audience.

    5) Social Media marketing is an effective way to reach and engage your audience as well. Social media is no longer an option, it’s a must. It allows you to engage with your audience and start conversations, ultimately building loyalty and trust. Be yourself, be authentic, post your thoughts and post your products.
