What then is Online Advertising?
Online Advertising is an effective form of advertising compared to other forms of advertising. The reason is that more than a billion people have access to the internet across the globe. online Advertising is also good because it is not passive. Customers can interact with it. It allows them to take action immediately.
It also includes email advertising and search engine marketing. mobile advertising, and social media marketing among others.
Here are some of the benefits…
#1 Attract Visitors
One of the major benefits of this form of advertising for users is that it will attract visitors to your website. If you are a blogger pr content creator expecting reasonable traffic on your website and you are relying on Search Engine traffic, it might not come on time.
If you are ready to place banner ads on popular blogs or bid for keywords in order to drive traffic to your website, you will be amazed at the level of traffic that you will have on your website. Online advertising gives you tons of traffic with immediate results.
#2 Convert Visitors
One of the reasons for running online campaigns is to turn visitors into customers. If you are running campaigns just to create awareness, it might not bring some immediate results.
Like I said in one of my articles, you cannot always get a 100 percent conversion rate for your campaign but you have to make sure that your campaign is captivating enough. It must consist of all the information that your prospects need in order to make buying decisions.
#3 Retain and Grow customers
Online advertising can also assist organisations in retaining and growing customers. There are some online customers that will buy your products and they may not necessarily come back for repeat purchases. You can actually run a campaign that will be targeted at this type of customer.
You can offer them mouth-watering offers that will make them engage in a repeat purchase. Running this type of campaign can also increase brand awareness among your target audience as well.
