No business can be accomplished without a strategy and online marketing is not an exception either. Strategising your marketing brawn is very crucial to entice your customers and bring results to your company. The competition in the virtual world is bigger than ever and stronger than anywhere else.

Know the market

Spend time to completely know, understand and estimate the existing market.  Learn about the competition and their product or service, strategies, strengths, weaknesses, procedures etc. SEO, PR, PPC, Adsense, all should be learned about your competition.

Spend the same amount of time learning about your customer. Who are they, where are they, what do they want/need/desire. Learn their demographics, geographies, what or who influences them, where can you find them in the virtual world, social networking or blogs or forums or discussions. Learn what they feel or write about your competitors and their products and services.  Identify the gap if any – this becomes your strength.

Streamline your research data

Research is hard work and you must take good care and use your hard work very wisely. Streamlining the data you have gathered is vital for formulising your internet marketing strategy. You must pin-point various factors from the researched data, factors that will make a difference. Find out if your data projects anything that can be determined as an influence maker, may be like a traffic source or a particular trend or a gap that exists between your potential customer and your competitor. Filtering your research data is paramount to know your target market.

Start working…now…!

Now, you know what your competition is doing and you also know what your customers want. This is all you need to get started. Start working on your site through PPC, SEO, link building, email, blogging, podcasting, video blogging, webinars, viral traffic generation, banner exchange etc.  But, remember, online marketing is not about what you can, it’s about what you should.

Keep Sniffing

Once you deploy your internet marketing strategy and your site, it is very essential that you keep monitoring your traffic and their trends. You must identify what is bringing traffic to your site, SEO or PPC etc and learn what is keeping the traffic on your site or driving away the traffic from your site.  This will ensure where you should put your money in the future.
