What are the different types of online marketing?
If you want to be successful with online marketing, there are many different types of marketing that are important to understand. Each type of marketing requires specialized knowledge and understanding to ensure it is effective.
Here is an overview of the various types of online marketing that you need to know about.
1.Search Engine Optimization
Often shortened to SEO, this type of marketing covers two types of SEO. First, there is on-page SEO which refers to optimizing each page of your website, social media profiles, blog sites, etc. with terms, navigation, keywords, headlines, etc. correct.
The other type is off-page SEO, which deals with these same things outside of the pages you control. For example, guest blogging, forum comments, and anything else you can do to gain authoritative links to your website and other online real estate are important for SEO.
2. Pay Per Click Marketing
This is really an advertising concept, but for these purposes we include it here. Often shortened to PPC, this is any ad you buy that charges you for each click a potential customer makes on the ad. The ad takes the potential customer to your sales page or landing page.
3. Email Marketing
One of the most lucrative of all types of online marketing, email marketing is done through the use of email marketing software such as AWeber.com or MailChimp.com. The software helps you comply with the law when it comes to email marketing.
4.Marketing in social networks
Any marketing done on social media that drives members, likes, and connections to your product funnel is social media marketing. Social media marketing works best when you commit to engaging with your audience.
Community and Relationship Building Marketing
Thanks to forums, message boards, social media groups, and more, you can now create an entire online community that allows you to reach out to them and build relationships with them. Relationships are very important when it comes to online marketing.
Today, you should also consider marketing to your local location, but you don’t even have to book a flight to market to many locations using the right search terms and targeted content. If your audience is located in a specific location, you can target all of your online and offline marketing to that location.
This is an effective way to get a legion of fans to do a lot of marketing for you. An affiliate signs up to use their tools to market their products and/or services to their audience, and for each completed sale they get a percentage. You will need affiliate software for this, such as aMember.com or JVZoo.com.
This type of marketing consists of all forms of content such as videos, blogs, white papers, articles, e-books, e-courses, email series. Anything that consists of content in all its forms is content marketing.
