  • Organic ways to succeed on social media

    Social Media is a huge platform that has evolved immensely in the last two years. Today, news, updates, product launches etc., are first announced on Facebook and other prominent social media channels. Therefore, for every company, irrespective of its size and sector, it is important to thrive on a social media platform, which best complements its product/service range.

However, for a company in a nascent stage, it is difficult to earmark huge sums for paid ad campaigns. So, let’s discuss on how you can run an effective social media campaign in ZERO budget. (more…)

Unlike website traffic acquisition methods, such as paid search advertising, where it is much easier to measure tangible benefits and fairly accurately determine the return on investment, there is a degree of ‘unknowns’ when it comes to measurement of ROI of social media marketing.

  • Start-up marketing: if you don’t start it, you may be killing the start-up

    Recently, we were in a dialogue with the founder of an e-commerce start-up in India regarding a potential engagement for us to provide digital marketing services to his fledgling venture. We were excited because his website looked good, the products were niche and seemed like they had a good market and hardly any marketing was being done– all in all, a very good setting for us to come in as his marketing consultant and deliver some serious value. There was only one problem though, which kept coming to the fore as we went through some rounds of discussion: he did not have (or rather, I feel, he did not want to) allocate ‘much’ money to his online marketing.

    We received a spam blog comment today on a personal blog maintained by one of our team members from a SEO company in Canada, trying to promote their own services while also inviting a listing/ article contributions for their website. One of the things that caught our attention was this sentence on the home page of their website: “You should not trust any SEO team that buys Google Adwords to advertise on Google; it shows they cannot do SEO.” How wrong could this SEO company be! We’d like to counter that digital marketing agency that uses Google Adwords (among other channels) to promote its own SEO services will most likely have a better understanding of online marketing and be much better positioned to provide holistic marketing advice to clients.

  • Understanding ‘direct traffic’ and its importance in measuring your marketing success

    Measuring source of website traffic is an essential part of a digital marketer’s routine. The focus is typically on search engine traffic (whether organic or paid) and referral traffic. One source that often doesn’t get much more than a cursory look is ‘direct traffic’. However, I feel that direct traffic deserves much better attention because it can not only give an indication of the success of your overall marketing (and not just online marketing) but also this traffic could well be of a much higher ‘quality’ that results in targeted outcomes.
