What Are the Benefits of Retargeting?

What Are the Benefits of Retargeting?

As you are no doubt aware, any form of online marketing is aimed at gaining more customers and increasing the rate of actual sales. A website might be awesome and eye-catchingly brilliant, but if its conversion-to-sales rate is low, it might just be missing the mark somewhere along the line.

If this happens, it can be a sign that your marketing efforts need some honing and refining. This is where retargeting comes in.

What is retargeting and why does it matter?

Retargeting is a form of marketing to audiences based on their previous behaviour. It matters because it provides a way to better target people who are more likely to actually be interested in a product and to make a purchase.

In a sense it can really only be called ‘retargeting’ if the person targeted has bought from the company before. However, the term also relates to targeting people based on past search behaviours and habits, whether they purchased or not.

When you think about it, prior to the internet, companies may have sent you mail marketing material they …

What is Influencer Marketing, and What Does it Mean for Businesses?

Influencer marketing might sound a bit like a trendy new buzzword, but the fact is it might just be the marketing technique of the 21st century. This is especially likely in light of the fact that people are becoming less trustful of brands, and a little weary of traditional advertising. This means they are tending to ignore the ‘hype’ that can be a feature of many marketing and advertising campaigns.

So just what is influencer marketing?

This marketing technique involves utilising the impact that influential people have on a target market, through their acts of ‘spreading the word’ to their followers about a brand or product. These ‘influencers’ may be online bloggers with a large following, or they might be those who have a strong influence and audience on social media, and so on. In this sense, in marketing campaigns of the future, it may become not only about what is said, but also about who said it.

Why go this route?

Simply put – it is working better than more traditional forms of marketing. Research indicates that …

How Keyword Research is Evolving

How Keyword Research is Evolving

SEO is growing up, evolving, maturing. Similar to the way a child starts out learning a few simple words and then gradually progresses to long sentences, SEO is graduating from a focus on simple keyword matching to a focus on knowledge and concepts, and better answers to user queries.

Let’s face it – human beings don’t think in terms of simple search terms and keywords. Our minds revolve around ideas, concepts, and topics. We are curious, and want answers to questions, and solutions to problems. We want information that is reliable, truthful, and that will add value to our lives. The words we use have context, and relationship to each other.

With this in mind, search engines are changing to try and understand and take into account the meaning behind the words we use when searching on the internet, to enable us to find more complete and comprehensive answers to our queries.

How does this affect keyword research?

Keywords still have relevance in SEO, but keyword research is evolving. The development of semantic search that is focused more …
