The most efficient inbound marketing campaigns have always shown to be driven by someone who understood how the average customer thinks. They showed that they not only knew what customers loved but also what customers hated.
Here are four creative ways to make your inbound marketing campaigns more effective.
1. Turn Negative Feedback into Something Positive
Prospective customers will, one way or another, always find the negative comments someone has left about your business, your services or your product.
While it’s morally wrong to try to censor these comments and likely impossible to do so entirely, you can still act as a responsible business by addressing the negative comments left by unhappy customers.
You may not be able to turn the opinion of one or two people around, but you’ll certainly leave a fantastic impression that makes people think twice about leaving your website simply because you’ve already shown once that you care about customer satisfaction.
2. Radically Redevelop your Website’s Design
Every element of your website should contribute to converting visitors into customers. Your inbound marketing plan will flounder if your website’s color scheme, layout, typography and even white space fail to appeal to your customers.
You can take this idea one step further by incorporating design into your inbound marketing campaign. By tweaking just a few elements, you can radically change the effectiveness of your campaign.
3. Don’t Just Advertise, Start Blogging
Advertising will only get you so far. You still need content that speaks to your visitors and fulfills the requirements set forth by search engines if you want to see more customers.
One of the best ways to do this is by blogging. The spin on this age-old idea that businesses have only recently begun to see as profitable is to blog for people other than yourself.
In other words, start writing guest blogs for other people. You’ll draw some of their traffic while establishing a better position for yourself within search engines.
4. Incorporate Social Media into Everything
Social media is the easiest ways for people to share not only their thoughts but also the things they like. They can broadcast these things to their friends, families and co-workers, which likely share a similar interest in these things.
Because you likely desire your business to be well-received among your customers, there’s no reason that you shouldn’t try to have your happy customers spread your business around Facebook, Twitter and every other social network out there.
Incorporate social media into your marketing campaign, your website, your email newsletter and everything else you can think of. As you grow your social following, you’ll start to see that business starts to really boom.
Making Your Inbound Marketing Campaign Lean, Mean and Effective
Maximizing your inbound marketing methods and efforts requires you to understand your customers, appeal to potential customers, and to know how to coax them into working for you.
Remember that your inbound marketing campaign is as much about your business’s success as it is about your customers and what they think. This is the single most important factor responsible for success.
