Communication is Key
It may seem like an obvious point to make, but communication is important. No matter what you are trying to do, you need to communicate with your customers effectively. It is important to outline a plan and define what you aim to do over the year as a business.
Sit down and think about it all. Consider what your aims are and how you want to achieve them. In most cases, achieving your goals will need successful and carefully produced content of some form. Whether visual, audio or written, using communication should be high on your list for 2019.
As the largest search engine after Google, YouTube has made a huge impact on how we access information. As a result, it is predicted that video marketing will rocket over this next year. Both live streaming and pre-recorded videos can be useful to any business, whether small or large.
A short yet effective video about your services or an update on an important topic can drive traffic and improve engagement.
There are so many different platforms available that it is impossible to avoid social media. With Instagram and LinkedIn growing along with old favourites Facebook and Twitter, you can be on to a winner. Regular posting along with visually impacting graphics can draw people in. Whether you use influencers to boost posts or share videos, it all counts.
Voice Search Optimisation
Chances are that you’ve used some form of voice search, either out of curiosity or convenience. However, the Global Web Index estimates that at least 1 in 5 adults use mobile searches once a month. As people start to use more Siri and Alexa, we need to adapt our businesses to survive.
An aim for all in 2019 should be to update their websites and content to be more inclusive of this search approach. Using specific and well researched keywords can dramatically improve the amount of people accessing your website. Furthermore, making use of Google snippets where possible is also another way of improving SERP appearances.
To this day content remains an essential part of marketing. Whether it’s long tale informative blogs or short and snappy social media posts, you need to get it right. Google is starting to rank pages more based on the quality of content and whether users can benefit from it.
Generic content and keyword stuffing have been bad practice for a long time. In 2019 it is important for tailored writing along with customer-focus to become the main aim.
