This diagram shows you how to align some of the most common internet marketing strategies to match your most strategic business priority.
It is important to choose the tactic with the highest priority. If want to generate leads quickly, the tactic to use is Google pay per click. Looking at the lead generation column in red, you see that Google pay per click is the best choice to generate leads. This is because, in most cases, we can get a result on Google within 24 hours using paid search.
Once we have learned the best keywords for Google from pay per click, we can then use the keywords to search engine optimize your website. Search engine optimization helps you create an asset of your website and as you get higher rankings you rely less on paying Google for your advertising.
When it comes to content marketing, this is where we write articles and add them to your website, they are how-to articles and informational articles. This is a powerful way of marketing and has many benefits. Content marketing is definitely the best way to be seen as a thought leader and delivers more relevant content for search engines to index.
We can see that social media also provides a great way to build brand as well as communicating with customers/prospects. Social media can include blogging, video syndication, participating in online conversations and much more.
