Should I include paid on-line marketing in my marketing plan and budget?

The majority of people are now using the internet for some sort of use. If you have never tried placing an advertisement on-line, you could be missing out on this large market. On-line ads can provide so much more information to a user because the user can click on the ad and be taken to your website or social media page where you can include so much more. On-line advertising can be overwhelming. Where do you start? If you have a website, maybe you tried Google AdWords. You basically pay to have your website show up in search results when a user types in a certain word. Facebook ads have proved to be quite effective. You set a budget to either promote your business page or boost a post. You can choose a wide or narrow demographic, such as state, city, male or female, ages, and even interests. Your ad will appear to those users you targeted, and that’s all you pay for. Another option would be to contact another business that you are affiliated with and ask to have them put a link or ad on their website in exchange for you doing the same on your site, or for a fee. Newspapers may also offer a discount for on-line advertising when you place a traditional ad in the paper. You can also request to just have the on-line ad. So if you haven’t changed your marketing behavior in a while, I would encourage you to check into this. Contact SMG Web Design if you want to learn more about this.
