    Online marketing for startups and others

    Hi all. I thought you might be interested in a blog post I just wrote about online marketing for start ups. It's good to remind the rest of us as well. It's been a while since I was on this forum, and forums are a part of online marketing too. Really is a discipline we need to adhere to to do daily marketing. http://typewritetranscription.blogsp...ther-bits.html

    The most exhilarating experience is starting your own venture. Some of the big questions that follow are how to reach masses, how to make your business resonate, how to drive your business results, how to be successful, and how to fulfil your dreams with a shoestring budget?

    Let’s begin with a very basic question, why do startups need marketing? Startups solve problems for their users, and connecting with right users is about personalised marketing at scale. They need to build their own brand identity and a slow growth in this fast-paced competitive world can be detrimental to the startup’s health.

    Why digital marketing and not traditional forms of marketing? In digital marketing, there are organic ways to grow your consumer base without incurring large amounts of money, it has low entry barriers and scale. A lot can be done with less and sharp targeting leading to less wastage.

    As a startup, how can digital marketing help you? It builds awareness and positions your company and brand. It builds a consistent flow of traffic, gets the first few users. This form of marketing also drive leads and online sales.

    Good article Gaynor, I agree with the website...in a digital era you definitely need to be online with your business.

    I recently posted a blog article that touches on the assumptions of lead generation, you can read it on my Kaomi blog page. The reason I bring this up is that although you do need a website, very often we find that start-ups create a website and no one knows about the business so no one visits the website.

    Once you create a website on wordpress, you still need to do some form of marketing like PPC, SEO or anything else where you get people to go to your website. This assists Google to index your website and it can gain authority from Google.

    Another quick win is also creating a Google My Business page.

    Look forward to reading more of your articles

    Always good to read these thing to refresh ones knowledge.

    Google my business is a great help with startups and even sites that have been around, but for starups its a nice bit of extra exposure when you are still ranking low , its a great resource.

    Great article
