The best kind of internet marketing is the kind that is directed toward a targeted audience. Display advertising is an affordable and effective way of spreading knowledge on your brand, services, or products to a specific targeted audience.
Display marketing allows for the targeting of specific audience groups according to:
In the past, if you wanted to advertise on a website you would have to contact the administrator, set up business initiatives and proposals for the advertisement, and specifically design each ad. Currently, there is display advertising that allows for advertisements to be displayed on specific websites that drive traffic of customers who are searching for content related to services and products your website offers. This eliminates the need to design and develop paid advertisements separately, increases the industries that recognize your brand, and allows for specific audience targeting that has a higher potential for buying your products or services. The innovative change that allows for this audience targeting is called tracking technology. This technology tracks a user’s search history so that audience from certain demographics can be advertised to.
If specific audiences of people can now be targeted for advertising, what about the people who have previously visited your site and never converted into customers? Retargeting uses tracking technology to advertise your brand, products, promotions, or services directly to individuals who have previously visited your website. This ensures that the advertising that you invest in is being used to target people that you already know are interested in your company. Retargeting is largely successful in changing potential leads into sales, but it is not effective in bringing in brand new clientele. This is why it is important to utilize retargeting with additional forms of marketing; namely, display advertising.
To gain a feel for who to target with a display marketing campaign, a keyword search to determine which terms are searched for in your area is reviewed. Along with location, key demographics are also searched for to determine who searches for terms related to your business industry.
During this stage, display marketing methods are decided upon and developed. Examples of techniques used in display advertising include banners and landing pages. Banners are website ads with a call to action, or a quick and precise offer or discount along with a way to get to your site with a click. Landing pages are internet pages separate from your business webpage that are designed to promote a specific product, offer, or event. Whatever form of display advertising you choose, you can ensure that it will be readily optimized for peak performance.
