The GOOD news is that isn’t too late to squash your competition! Internet marketing can be a quick, sometimes instantaneous way to connect with your customers – both existing and potential.

So what does internet marketing mean to YOU?

Here’s what it means to Holland – an internet marketing agency in Cincinnati:

  • An optimized website communicating your brand story and unique selling proposition.
  • Complete, compelling product information.
  • Content designed to convert surfers to customers.
  • Links to and interaction with social media platforms.
  • Pay-per-click advertising that gets your site on page one of searches.
  • Retargeted ads directed to surfers that have viewed your site – and left.
  • Capturing as much data as possible about visitors, and applying that info to your marketing efforts.
  • Engaging your customers with interesting and pertinent information – either blogging or with email campaigns.
  • Embedded video content that tells your story or showcases your products – or both.
  • A responsive opt-in email list.
  • Encouraging your existing customers to comment, praise, and share information about your product or service.

Does this seem a like a lot? Not to us! An effective and optimized site can get surfers to you, but without compelling content that is easy to access and comment on, an engaging brand story, and information that helps convert surfers to customers they may leave, never to return.

Planning a successful strategy for internet marketing in Cincinnati and beyond does take focus and creativity, but once you craft and execute your internet marketing plan, you’ll find maintaining and updating to be easy.
