Once you’ve established a presence online it’s time for it to get noticed by your target market.
The importance of being found cannot be overstated as consumers are increasingly turning to the Internet as their primary method of research during their buying cycle. It’s a safe bet that if they can’t find you online they will find your competition.
“Why use a cannon to kill a mosquito?”
The wisdom of this Japanese proverb unveils the truth about advertising in traditional media such as TV, radio, newspapers and direct mail. They usually quote their ad rates by CPM or “Cost per Thousand” people, to make the cost easier to digest. What they’re not telling you however is the cost to reach 1000 customer prospects for your business is actually much higher because only a percentage of their audience (often a small percentage) are qualified prospects. These outlets rely on vague demographics in hopes of reaching a specific group of people, but the targeting is often quite limited. Show us a group of 1000 “18 to 34 year-old males” in your city and we’ll show you 1000 different consumers!
Would you advertise retirement packages to teens?
Or veterinary services to consumers without pets?
It used to be you had to pay to hit tens of thousands of unqualified prospects to meet your advertising goals because there was no alternative. Like the cannon used to kill a mosquito, a lot of firepower (your advertising budget) was wasted. With the Internet that’s all changed.
