How Much Does Digital Marketing Cost?

One thing is for user, digital marketing is never free. You can spend multiple hours a day on it, hire an employee and train them, or outsource it to a digital marketing agency.

The key is getting the maximum ROI for your money. It's also important to remember that ROI doesn't' have to mean revenue. It can also mean meeting other objectives, such as getting more leads, increasing traffic to your website, or boosting your social media engagement. The end result is how focused you are on digital marketing. Did your lead, or sale, arrive because they saw your social media multiple times, saw your ads online, found your website when entering keywords, or was driving by your storefront and something reminded him of your name, product or service? If they go to your storefront, they probably say "I was just passing by", and not tell you they saw our social media, ads, or website. You know that just because you built it, clients did not come out of the blue.

How Often Should I Update My Website?
Search engines, like Google and Bing, place a lot of relevance on websites that keep their content fresh, and are continually adding information for their clients.

This is why updating your website frequently, and having a blog and social media, where posts are published daily or weekly, are of the upmost importance.

What About A Responsive Mobile Ready Website?
Mobile phones are the most used devices to access the internet, search for services, stores, products, engage with social media, and view websites. A business that ignores mobile marketing is already behind the curve.

Your business website needs to be modern, responsive, and mobile ready. It must look good on a large 27" desktop, 17.3" laptop, 12" tablet, or 5" smartphone.

What Is SEO?
Search engine optimization (SEO) is optimizing the content of your website so that it ranks high on a search engine's page. So that when someone is searching for your services or products, your business will show up high on the first page results. Ranking on the first page of Google is what everyone strives for. Done well, it increases the quantity and quality of visitors to your website.

PPC also works for advertising on social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.

We have relationships with thousands of websites around the world, and although we can not guarantee backlinks; the informational posts that we do for your blog are a good way for these websites to hopefully mention your business. We mention your newest blogs, every month, to these sites, and over time, a few will catch their eye and post it on their website, and thus, mention your business and you get a backlink.
