Every business needs a marketing to be successful but how to choose the best marketing tools for our business.

Traditional methods that were effective before may not be as effective in this current market powered by the complexities – and the vast wealth of opportunities – by the Internet.

You already know the world of digital media is changing at a phenomenal pace. Its constantly evolving technologies, and the way people are using them, is transforming not just how you access your information, but how you interact and communicate with your customers on a global scale.

That is why it is very important that your brand and business establish and maintain a very strong online presence to be competitive enough to reach out to targeted audiences. It has also changed the way you choose and buy products and services.

One of the most important tool after the e-mail marketing is Search Engine Result Page( SERP) > This tool is very important because most customers never go beyond first 3 pages of search. If your webpage is not on the first 3 pages of search most probably will never be visited.

Search Engine Result Page tool can vary from country to country and to create an understanding of all the idiosyncrasies of your target audience, language use and culture you always need to think that each country has different search engine preferences.

Below is the map of search engines by country.

Google is not always the most popular local search engine worldwide. Different countries have different preferences. Russia favors local search engine Yandex. Knowledge of search engine preferences helps you to create your own bespoke keyword strategy. China’s most popular search engine is Baidu, which has more than 60% of market share Chinese’s language is spoken by 509 million of internet users compared to 536 million English speakers Naver is the most widely used search engine in South Korea with 80% popularity.

The most important part of SERP and SEO is the content, because search engines can’t see pictures, so you need to provide detailed information of your website in text form.

Obtaining high quality content is accomplished when you write content that engages the reader and keeps them interested. This is something that all content writers really should aim for. Add new content regularly because this helps to boost your site as well. Target your keyword phrase through the article. Content should be influenced by the business plan and is targeted by search engines and different communication channels.

Off Page Optimization is the activity that is done on other sites for our site to increase search engine ranking. Integration of identified keyword phrases in external links to the same page.  Off Page Optimization activities include directory submission, article submission, forum discussion, blog posting, press release, blog commenting, white paper submission and along with this social bookmarking (in digg, delicious, reddit, stumbleupon) and social media promotion (in Facebook, twitter, linkedin). Off page optimization creates strong back links for our site which not only helps for search engine ranking but also for drive traffic from sites where we have done all these submissions.

Social Media engagement is another common used tool for popularizing of business and activities. Social medias are first of all angaging audience and second of all generating traffic to the websites.

The emergence of Internet-based social media has made it possible for one person to communicate with hundreds or even thousands of other people about products and the companies that provide them. Thus, the impact of consumer-to-consumer communications has been greatly magnified in the marketplace. This article argues that social media is a hybrid element of the promotion mix because in a traditional sense it enables companies to talk to their customers, while in a nontraditional sense it enables customers to talk directly to one another. The content, timing, and frequency of the social media-based conversations occurring between consumers are outside managers’ direct control. This stands in contrast to the traditional integrated marketing communications paradigm whereby a high degree of control is present. They include providing consumers with networking platforms, and using blogs, social media tools, and promotional tools to engage customers.

We can expect this trend to continue even further in the future, so get ready!
