Want A Successful Product Launch? Use Your Blog To Market Your New Product!

When social media and blogging are combined you are able to create a very powerful marketing network. This powerful combination can be particularly successful in increasing brand visibility. This increased brand visibility can be extremely useful especially in the instance when a new product is being launched. Therefore when it comes to launching a new product its popularity can be dependent on the success of the online marketing campaign.

So, in order to make sure that your online marketing campaign is reaching its full potential there are certain procedures that you can follow when it comes to using your blog to assist with a product launch, these include:

1. Find out what your customer wants.

2. Use teaser posts to capture interest.

3. Run a competition to engage your audience.

4. Include customer reviews to increase return on investment.

5. Optimise your blog to make sure your posts get noticed.

So, let’s go into detail…

Investigate what your customers like, what they want and therefore what they would buy

Get to know your buyers well, there is no point creating a fantastic product that will not have any relevance to your target audience. It is crucial that you spend some time investigating what your customers like, what they want and therefore what they would buy.

Including polls on your blog feed can prove a great way of generating that extra information that you need. You can use the text in the blog post to give your customers some information about the new product and to tell them about the market research you are carrying out. Within the blog posts you can include links to polls/surveys about the new product. If you know exactly what your customers would prefer then you can work to producing a product that is exactly what your customer wants.

3 Things To Do When You Have Writers Block

Even the best bloggers will hit a brick wall from time to time, twiddling their thumbs or tapping aggressively at their keyboard when they can’t quite get their words out. Or worse still when they have no idea what their next blog entry is going to be about. Even with the help of those sites like the blog topic generator that let you type in 3 key words and then formulate a title for you, sometimes it just doesn’t cut it. So if you’re still struggling to conjure the perfect blogging topic I advise you keep reading. Here are some of tips that have helped me achieve the inspiration I needed to get me back on track to producing quality content that will hopefully help you to.


The Benefits Of Having A Blog Feed Included In Your Web Design

-Keep your customers up to date. A blog feed is a simple and effective way of quickly alerting your customers to any useful information. This might include a new product launching, Christmas opening times or perhaps a special offer that you might have.

-Publish product reviews. As there are so many similar products available to buy on the internet customers often want to find as much information as possible about a product they are about to invest their hard earned cash on. Including product reviews on your website are a great way of providing your customers the extra information they are looking for. A positive product review could be the difference between getting that extra sale and losing the sale to someone else.

-Raise brand awareness and drive traffic to your website. If you have an active blog feed that is posting useful and interesting information, it is likely that you are increasing your brand awareness and brands visibility. People reading your blog might be encouraged to share an entry on one of their social media channels. Your brand/business is then introduced to a whole new following of people. This can sometimes drive traffic to your website. If people read a blog entry about a product they are interested in, it could even result in a sale. (more…)

Why Should You Invest In Digital Marketing?

As the world is becoming increasingly interlinked through the medium of the internet we are now able to almost instantly connect with our friends, family, colleagues and clients. This instant connectivity has been aided by the spawn of social networking sites as more and more people are logging in to their numerous accounts on a daily basis. So with more and more people online, marketers are able to target their customers through the application of digital marketing, a concept that was unheard of until recently.

Digital marketing channels are at easy disposal, if you have time you can run them for free, but as your business expands it is worth employing someone who is able to look after your channels for you so they can continue to build your brand’s online visibility. Gaining an online presence can be great for your business; you are suddenly able to interact with your customers across various channels. This way you can keep them up to date with what is going on, alert them of any new products etc. It is another medium that you can utilise to provide first quality customer service.
