Website marketing campaign is a great way to enhance website traffic and to increase its actual earning ability. Thus, smart website owners, designers, creators, content providers and webmasters should invest a lot of their time to a well-planned, well-executed website marketing campaign.
Here are the steps to a successful website marketing campaign which achieves the end results of enhancing website traffic and encouraging user activities that will increase profit coming from the website.
Step 1: Create a marketing plan.
As in other forms of marketing, start any website marketing campaign with a plan. This must state your objectives (see introductory page for a guide), your target audience, details of your plan, your budget, and your monitoring and evaluation tools.
At this point, the basic things that you must know are these:
- Your customer: What kinds of Internet user do you want to attract? State the demographics, their personality type, their interests, their consumption patterns—anything to help you understand what they want.
- Your resources: What do you need to get this website marketing campaign off the ground? What do you need to sustain it? How much is your budget? Who will implement the campaign, and/or each of its parts? What kinds of skills are needed to effectively translate the plan to action?
Step 2: Choose methods and targets.
Based on your plan, choose the methods that you will use for your website marketing campaign. Also, make sure to decide on the best websites, service providers, or programs by which those methods can be realized.
Some of the methods that you can choose from are:
(1) Cross promotions with complementary but not rival sites,
(2) Ad placements,
(4) External linking, and
(5) Pay-Per-Click advertising.
Step 3: Create contents for the promotional material.
Make sure that the material is simple, visually attractive but not cluttered. Use the minimum number of text to convey a simple yet effective message. The ad must suit the needs of your target market and introduce your product/service.
It must sell not only the product but a greater idea that connects emotionally to users. Make sure that the technical specifications, like graphic size and resolutions are in order, as well as appropriate links and tags.
After these steps, place the ads onto your chosen sites, and then wait for user returns. Refresh the website marketing campaign by introducing new materials from time to time or during special seasons.
