Marketers Say Email is Delivering Better than Social Networking

5 Nov

The “Marketing Profs Digital Marketing Fact Book” shows that by and large most marketing professionals say that email is outperforming social media two to one. I say of course it is because social networking should be driving people to your email lists. See the results and read more below!

 

best results from digital marketing

Key findings:

 

  • Search marketing delivers the best results (33%); search and email still constitute the core of a solid online media plan.
  • Nearly everyone uses email, and this medium is repeatedly ranked as one of the most cost-effective (and effective) forms of marketing. Elsewhere in the Factbook, almost 50% of 623 email marketers report that sending emails at midday (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) is the best time of day to do so. The start of the business day (6 a.m. to 10 a.m.) is considered second best at 31.5
  • Mobile marketing is barely on the radar; it’ll be interesting to see what happens in the next few years with mobile.

About the data: The MarketingProfs Digital Marketing Factbook, designed to be a comprehensive source of data and research for online marketers, includes chapters on email, search, and social media—with 144 pages of findings, including 110 charts and graphs from 60+ sources.

—————————————————————————————

 

OK so lets review the data, of course Email and Search are still huge! but does that mean social media is less important? That’s a big fat NO and here is why.

Social Media has the capacity to drive new contacts in realtime into your email lists. that’s it. end of discussion. social media is for relationship and trust building of course you will see higher direct revenue from email. but if you look list building via Facebook, Twitter, and other social media is far faster than any other format. (of course that’s only if you contribute content that is worth something but that’s a secondary issue.

look at the bottom line if you can drive growth for free—I repeat drive GROWTH for FREE and quickly via social media then it needs to be a key part of your strategy. Email and search are of course critical and have driven the Internet for years. you must do all of the above. Remember the process your goal in marketing is to move people into the seat of loyal customers and fans.

Social media connects you to new people who can be added to your email list and therefore the results will actually show as an email result in most cases. but I can without spending a dime gain roughly 50 to 100 new followers everyday on twitter. Then I can get about 30% of those followers to join my mailing lists via quality squeeze pages. You need to be doing the same! The results will be more sales from your email list. The social networks lead to bigger email lists. So remember to work the mix don’t depend on social media as the silver bullet strategy. Do remember that utilizing Social Networks and Social media for rapid list growth is cheap, easy, and worth pursuing!

 

SEO as you know it is Dead! NEW SEO in the Social Media Age

10 Mar

“if we don’t fix Web pages for google, what are we going to do?”

And that is the very crux of textbook SEO’s diminishing value.

I’ve gone on record as saying, “The Web is no longer just a collection of HTML pages linked together. It is a network of networks of people who are totally connected to each other. I believe it’s the understanding of these connections that will shape not just search, but all of marketing.”

the above text is an excerpt from web 2.0 is just so 2008 by Mike Grehan for ClickZ.com

and Mike is right

SEO as a “lets engae google because that is where peopel start their web experience” concept is rapidly diminishing.

The Web has become a component of our social culture. In our society before the web (remember pre 1995) people used to get reffferals to businesses to find the solutions they needed. and now websites like stunmbleupon, twitter, digg, buzz up, alltop etc all do the same thing.

As humans we still rpefer to do business wiht someone that somneone we know or trust already knows or trusts.

I’ve been in web marketing for 10 years and have found one truth across all sectors. Search generated traffic almost exclusively produces customers who value low prices over quality of service or quality of customer experience. And that’s becasue broad search customers are the least educated consumer in the marketplace. that’s not to say they arent valueable they are. 

A better educated consumer is more valueable, more loyal, and ultimately easier to persuade into buying.

As a business person I try to align myself with brands that are not purely price driven competitors. Becasue no one searches for exotic luxury car and prepares to buy a Bentley ‘cuz they saw one on Google.

It’s about building a real brand presence on the internet. engaging people on twitter, and facebook, and even on forums that relate to your product or service. Leverage these relationships to building a strong brand story online through multiple interconnected touch points. This is where savvy marketers are going for 2010 and beyond hurry up and get cracking.

The is the dawn of online positioning.

The next decade will bring about a time where we use multiple online media channels to build a brand position and we will see searches become much narrower. People will search more for specific products and brands rather then for broad generalizations for types of products and services.

Use the online socialmedia spehere to build a top of mind awareness with your customer so they think I need starbucks instead of I need coffee. then all of your traditiona SEO aware competitors will compete for the lowest common denominator of customer still searching for coffee, while you rake in the cash selling overpriced steamed foamy milk!

Now go do something I’m going to drink my Doppio Espresso Macchiato with Carmel!
