As many specializations exist in digital marketing as there are methods to interact with digital media.
Here are few major examples of digital marketing methods.

Search engine marketing

SEO, or search engine optimization, is a marketing technique rather than a type of marketing in and of itself. According to The Balance, it is “the art and science of making online sites appealing to search engines.”

What matters most in SEO is the “art and science” component. SEO is a science since it necessitates researching and weighing several contributing aspects in order to get the greatest potential rating on a search engine results page (SERP).

The following are the most important factors to consider when optimizing a web page for search engines today:

Content quality Level of user involvement
The quantity and quality of inbound connections

In addition to the factors listed above, you must optimize technical SEO, which includes all of your site’s back-end components. URL structure, loading delays, and broken links are all examples of this. Improving your technical SEO will help search engines browse and crawl your site more effectively.

The systematic use of these criteria makes search engine optimization a science, but the inherent unpredictability makes it an art.

Content marketing

As mentioned, the quality of your content is a key component of an optimized page. As a result, SEO is a major factor in content marketing, a strategy based on the distribution of relevant and valuable content to a target audience.

As in any marketing strategy, the goal of content marketing is to attract leads that ultimately convert into customers. But it does so differently than traditional advertising. Instead of enticing prospects with potential value from a product or service, it offers value for free in the form of written material, such as:

  • Blog posts
  • E-books
  • Newsletters
  • Video or audio transcripts
  • Whitepapers
  • Infographics

There are several statistics that demonstrate the importance of content marketing:

84% of customers want businesses to create engaging and useful content experiences.
62% of firms with at least 5,000 workers create content on a daily basis.
92% of marketers agree that content is a vital asset for their firm.

Content marketing, no matter how effective it is, may be difficult. Content marketing writers must be able to rank high in search engine results while also captivating individuals who will read, share, and interact with the business further. When the information is relevant, it may help to build solid relationships all the way down the pipeline.

It is critical to define your audience in order to generate great content that is both relevant and interesting. Who do you eventually want to reach?

You can decide what kind of content to generate after you have a better understanding of your audience. You may utilize a variety of content types in your content marketing, such as videos, blog posts, downloadable worksheets, and more.

It’s a good idea to follow content marketing best practices regardless of the type of material you publish. This entails creating information that is grammatically correct, error-free, simple to grasp, relevant, and intriguing. Your material should also direct visitors to the next stage of the sales funnel, whether it’s a free consultation with a sales professional or a registration page.
Marketing on social media

By engaging individuals in online discussions, social media marketing may increase traffic and brand exposure. Social media marketing may be used to emphasize your business, goods, services, culture, and more. With billions of people spending time on social media platforms, concentrating on social media marketing might be beneficial.

Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are the most popular digital channels for social media marketing.

LinkedIn and YouTube are not far behind. Finally, the social media channels you employ for your business are determined by your objectives and target audience. For example, if you want to get new leads for your FinTech firm, targeting industry professionals on LinkedIn is a fantastic option because they are active on the platform. Running social media advertisements on Instagram, on the other hand, may be beneficial for your company if you operate a B2C focused on younger customers.

Because social media marketing involves active audience engagement, it has grown in popularity. At 96%, it is the most preferred content format for B2C digital marketers, and it is gaining traction in the B2B realm as well. 61%, according to the Content Marketing Institute

This year, 61% of B2B content marketers boosted their usage of social media.

Social media marketing has built-in engagement analytics that may help you evaluate how successfully you’re reaching your target audience. You get to choose whatever sorts of interactions are most important to you, whether it’s the amount of shares, comments, or overall website clicks.

Your social media marketing approach may not even include direct purchase as a goal. Many firms utilize social media marketing to engage viewers rather than immediately convince them to spend money. This is especially typical in brands that cater to older audiences or provide items and services that are not suitable for impulse purchases. Everything is dependent on your company’s social media promotion.

It is critical to adhere to established practices while developing a social media marketing plan. Here are a handful of the most crucial social media marketing best practices:

Create high-quality, interesting material; respond to comments and concerns in a professional way
Make a social media posting schedule.
Post at the perfect moment
Hire social media managers to assist your marketing efforts.
Know your audience and which social media outlets they use the most.
