How Does Digital Marketing Apply to Tech Companies?

Did you know that 53.3% of traffic that comes to websites is through organic search? Additionally, only .63% of people that use Google will click on results that land on the second page.

With these key statistics in mind, it is important to note that not just technology and IT companies, but all businesses, should be properly marketing themselves so they can avoid falling to the second page of Google. Digital marketing will allow IT companies and tech businesses of all kinds to develop more of an online presence and engage with potential customers, whether you want to target individuals or large companies, ultimately leading to more sales and revenue.

What Is SEO?

Search engine optimization, or SEO, is the process of ranking your website on search engines. As you begin to rank as a site for a diverse range of keywords, you will start to see an increase in organic traffic that comes to your website, which can then lead to potential customers.

The four main types of SEO that you can incorporate into your digital marketing strategy are on-page SEO, off-page SEO, technical SEO, and local SEO.

What Are Keywords?

Keywords are specific words and phrases that searchers will use to type into a search engine in order to find informative, relevant content. Keywords can also be one or two words, or they can even be longer phrases and questions depending on what you are wanting to target.

Keywords are both utilized in both SEO and PPC campaigns, and either can be integrated into your site’s copy, ads, landing pages, and more! Here is an example of how keywords work for paid campaigns on Google, using an IT company as example:

Why Isn’t My Site Ranking Well Even if I Updated the Content?

If you are not seeing your website ranking on Google, there is no need to worry. It might take a couple of weeks for your website to be crawled and indexed by search engines. Though it may take some time, the impact of finally ranking on Google is a long-term goal that will have a positive lasting impact for your business for years to come.

When Will My Tech Company See Results?

The duration for a tech company to attain Google’s first page varies based on several factors. Generally, companies in highly competitive niches or those with less established online presence may take longer to rank compared to those in less competitive industries or with stronger digital footprints.

However, with our efforts, strategic optimization, and our high-quality content, you should see positive digital marketing results within the first few weeks.

For example, here are some digital marketing results we’ve gotten over the years:

  • Organic traffic increase of 632%
  • Form submission lead boost of 117%
  • Conversion rate increase of 90%
  • Overall site traffic increase of 402%

Should I Implement SEO, PPC, or Both?

We would definitely recommend using multiple modes of digital marketing. This tactic will help you avoid having to rely on a specific medium for traffic and leads. With that in mind, our team suggests that long-term SEO and ongoing PPC campaigns are incorporated into your strategy.

Is Content Marketing Important for Tech Companies?

Yes! Content marketing is just one of many the important aspects of digital marketing. It offers a means to solidify your brand identity while addressing specific queries related to your products, services, and industry nuances.

A notable example is HubSpot’s blog, renowned for its diverse range of informative topics and up-to-date marketing insights. Analyzing such platforms can guide the organization of your own blog, enhancing user engagement.
