Now I will talk about two more interesting things Search engine optimization, Email marketing.
Search Engine Optimise (SEO)
Search Engine Optimize (SEO): Accoditing to my choose, by the name of SEO, they (e.g. Google, Bing etc) are actually doing their own business.
When you are asking Google, Hey Google! How is going to your service now? Google answer you, it’s pretty cool.
There are many professional bloggers they are writing about SEO. There are many programmers they are working to improve their SEO ranking. So a big number of communities may not agree with my experience- I don’t care.
When you search for how important is search engine to improve my business. Search engine providers will show you a large number of traffics charts that gain from search engines. But they are not showing you the success rate of their competitors.
Within millions of competitors, 10 or 20 can place on the first page of the search engine and they become a success. But the other millions are not counting here.
Take it easy because this analysis is fully on my experience.
In that case, my suggestion is- spend your time in the forum and social media, make a great community. It will give you more benefits than search engine.
Another great choice can be email marketing in the digital marketing world.
Email Marketing: Email marketing is a kind of marketing campaign which sent through email.
When you have an email list, convert them to your royal customer by sending a promotional email in their email inbox. This is a free trusted marketing tool that I like much.
