Creating your Campaign
Assign your Digital Marketing Goals
Since you have the proper budget for your digital marketing, you now should assign your key goals. In instance, what are your expectations as a result of all the online marketing effort you are doing?
It is better to have a strategy for each product or service; a set of marketing objectives and agenda about each one. For example, what is the product, who is your audience for this product, what is the objective, what is the budget for it. Here is a sample that explains this:
Let’s assume to have an example of car services company;
Objective: Promote a new service your company is now offering
Service: Connected car locators
Audience: Adults, teenagers with driving license
Objective: Build an engagement online community
Audience: Adults, teenagers with driving license
Objective: Increase sales
Service: Car paint protection
Audience: Car lovers, adults, teenagers with driving license
Assigning Key Performance Indicators
Here is the time for you to assign your KPIs. Preferably, you have the option of measuring each KPI using reports produced by different online platforms. But at this point, you don’t have to be concerned about “the way we measure them” rather then be concerned about technical implementations that will be explained later in this guide.
Writing your Content Strategy
Obviously, the content you write for any online marketing promotion or campaign is the most essential part because it represents your brand and is the one that engages your audience. All the platforms and tactics that we’ll be using, needs content. And remember that; the better content you have, the better improvements and developments you will generate.
Ideas for your Content
We need to find content ideas using the Product Concise Worksheet to help us producing the actual content that will be published. There are few questions to be asked in this case which are:
- What content can be delivered that your target audience might want to be informed about?
- Do you have any actual content that we can utilize?
- How can you associate your products or services with any events, news, or related content?
Now, you should be able to create a list of headlines such as, “4 Tips to Align your Company with your Marketing Goals”, “Are Websites Still Important for your Business?”, etc.
