Engage & Build Relationships With Your Audience!
"An audience consists of people who know you and/or your brand, who recognise you, want more from you and will actively seek you out."
When you stop collecting 'followers' and start building relationships, you increase trust, authority, credibility and attract more customers.
Your new world marketing mindset needs to change from purely promoting products to more focus on how your products can BENEFIT your audience by making a positive difference to THEM.
Everyone Is Not Your Customer!
The cardinal mistake in marketing is . . . if you try and market to everyone, you market to no one!
Your only marketing objective should be . . . to position your business as the 'Go To' place for the products or services somoene is looking for AND your marketing campaigns must use the likely channels to 'Get In The Face' of customers you want to keep and prospects you want to acquire.
How the Internet Has Influenced Your Marketing
Since the Internet has become the dominant player in the way we now market our products and services, and to remain in business, it's essential that mindsets change to embrace the Internet . . . not fear it because it is unknown.
Today, websites must be mobile responsive with focus on INSTANT gratification.

The New Marketing Methods
New World Marketing Revolves Around Traffic TO Your Website!
There's only 3 ways to drive traffic to your website . . . create it . . . buy it . . . borrow it
You can no longer rely on a 'Great Looking' website . . . it needs to work! Traffic (searchers) need to find you.
56% of all searches are now performed through 'Googling' on smart phones.
If Google can't find your website INSTANTLY . . . no one can!
Your website must work for you organically . . .
Organic search through search engine optimisation (SEO) is an essential aspect of your website and refers to the unpaid or natural search results displayed on Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs) when users perform a search query. By producing quality content and optimizing your website for user experience, you can increase your visibility to rank higher in organic search results and attract relevant organic traffic to your website.
"My Website Is a Waste of Time!"
It should be focusing on:
So often one hears "I've got a website, but it doesn't work!" Now is the time to make it work, because the Internet has taken over the marketplace completely - dictating the way business is now being conducted.
A website is a fundamental component of today's marketing landscape. It helps establish your online presence, build credibility, generate leads, enable online transactions, distribute content, integrate marketing efforts and facilitate business growth. It's a powerful tool that allows you to connect with your target audience, promote your brand and drive conversions in the digital era.

What You Need to Know Before Getting Started Online
If you asked a third party to set up your Internet Presence, you may be in for a few surprises!
do you own your internet presence?
Check that YOU or YOUR COMPANY are listed as the 'Registrant' of your domain name. If not, get this changed as soon as possible.
did you purchase your domain name separately from your webhost?
In this way, your website will never be held hostage by your webhost, if you have a falling out.
is your website's theme created using a web developer's license?
You need to own your paid theme's license. Otherwise, if you leave your web developer, who may hold the license, your website's theme will no longer be able to be updated, unless you buy a license - as and when Wordpress updates its platform - which it often does to patch vulnerabilities. Also, your plugins may no longer be compatible with your theme.
is google analytics set up on your website?
Outsourcing for paid advertising or tracking your website's performance, usually results in your Google Analytics code being included with other websites under the outsourced provider's access credentials. In effect, you therefore have no access to viewing your website's performance except by relying on the outsourced provider's reports.
Choose the Best Marketing Channel for You
You can't choose them all . . . only choose one or two where your audience is likely to hang out.
