Digital Marketing FAQs: What You Need to Know

Here are just some of the basics that you should know when considering digital marketing for your company and investing in our services.

What is digital marketing?

Digital marketing, also known as online marketing, is using the internet to promote a company’s products or services. This can include marketing on websites, search engines, social media, and more. The goal of digital marketing is to help your business build an online presence with the hopes of gaining qualified leads and sales for your company.

Why does my company need digital marketing?

With the rise of digital media as a whole, it is incredibly important for your business to showcase their brand online. Additionally, digital marketing is known to be viewed and shared more frequently and effortlessly, increasing the chances for your business to receive those qualified leads and new (and hopefully, frequent) sales!

Do you recommend digital marketing over traditional marketing?

Absolutely. As stated before, digital marketing is more widespread than traditional marketing tactics. For example, if you are an Atlanta-based ecommerce store with a national presence, it would make more sense to market your products online through your website, Google Business Profile (GBP), and even social media as compared to billboards and physical advertisements in the Atlanta area.

Should I combine digital marketing services?

Although it is not required in order to see results, we suggest you consider it! Utilizing more than one digital marketing service is highly recommended, especially if you are looking to see a high return on investment for your business. Reach out to our team to learn more about which services would be best for your business.

What SEO tactics do you use?

When working with our clients, we mainly focus on a mix five different SEO strategies, depending on your unique situation, our custom approach may entail:

  • Keyword research – The backbone of SEO is conducting keyword research and being able to use those keywords on your website. This will help you rank for relevant terms and find your ideal customer.
  • Content writing – This consists of creating copy on your page that has keyword optimized for ranking well, but also helpful information for users. Both of these factors will assist in bringing your target audience to your page and enable them to find the relevant information they’re searching for. This will help increase the chances of users becoming a customer of your business.
  • Link building – This tactic consists of gaining different links from authoritative domains, which will help increase your domain’s trust from search engines thus getting higher ranks on SERPs.
  • Competitor analysis – We’ll research your competitors and see what they’re doing with their digital presence. This is done both nationally and locally, for links, content, technical adjustments, and more.
  • Site optimization – With search engines having different standards for how a website is structured, we’ll go through and improve different aspects of your website such as internal linking, metadata, alt and title tags, and more.

What is local SEO?

Local SEO is a type of search engine optimization that focuses on a specific city or area. Strategies for local SEO include optimizing local profiles, building local links, and creating localized content. This will help increase the number of local customers who are looking for specific products or services near them. This affects the types of keywords we use, the kinds of pages written, and who your competitors are.

How long does it take to see results from digital marketing tactics?

It takes around 6 months to begin seeing results from our SEO strategies, and PPC results can be seen much quicker, even potentially in two months! SEO takes longer because it takes time to go through your website and make changes, as well as for Google to recognize these changes and begin to have you rank higher. 

What CMS platforms do you work with?

The majority of our clients use WordPress or Shopify which are platforms that we feel works best in terms of making SEO or design changes. WordPress is also very user-friendly, and we use it for our website too!

If you’re currently not using either of those CMS types, we have experience with working with other platforms too such as:
