Planning, creating and managing an online campaign can be a daunting task, and one that often gets added to the ‘too-hard basket’. From writing and editing the copy, to design, marketing and measuring performance, there’s a lot to plan and do. Having the right tools in place can make creating your online campaign easy and successful.
One of the biggest challenges for any business/website is keeping the attention of visitors in a distracted online world. In a study focused primarily on major media companies, Chartbeat found that 55% of visitors spent less than 15 seconds actively on a website page. This short time period illustrates the brief window available to gain attention. It is possible, through the right Marketing Campaign Development to maximise the attention you receive, providing better opportunities to secure new leads and make sales.
Elements of Successful Campaign Development
Step 1: Planning your campaign
Every campaign starts with an idea. Ideas for online marketing campaigns can come from a variety of sources. Sometimes you’ll have something in particular that you want to promote, and other times your research will lead you to a topic. A great place to start is to think about your ideal client and the problems they face (i.e. why they might contact you for help). Can you create an opt-in campaign that will help them to solve those problems?
Begin by defining your services or products. What are you selling? Identifying the right products to promote will help you to promote them better.
Working out the goals and objectives will help you set measures around the results you want to achieve. These figures can also help you determine the cost of the campaign based on target audience sizes vs goal objectives.
Planning is crucial to getting your campaign just right and creating an offer that your customers will be delighted with.
