Content Marketing

Content marketing helps drive traffic to your website through the content that you publish on social media, video platforms or your blog. Posting content across various channels that lead to a landing page on your website is also a great way to generate leads. With relevant and informational content on your site, customers will spend more time on your page. The longer they stay on your site, the higher the dwell time, which ultimately improves SEO and helps you get found on searches.

Social Media Marketing 

Almost everyone you know has a profile on at least one social media platform. The biggest social media platforms include Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. Today, all companies, regardless of industry, have discovered how effective social media is for increasing brand awareness and generating leads. The best part is that these platforms allow you to target people based on specific demographics. For example, if you’re targeting Millennials to purchase a Bluetooth adaptor, you can select their age range, interests, location, etc. 

Blogging

Publishing content on your blog not only helps increase brand awareness, but it gives people a reason to visit your site regularly. When it comes to blogging, in-depth content, like step-by-step guides and recommendations for subwoofers or amps, can help you establish yourself as an authority in the car audio niche.

And once you are recognized as an authority, you are more likely to see your audience turn into fans and ultimately, into paying customers. It also helps to add a CTA at the end of each blog that will lead them to the products.

Video Marketing

When it comes to promoting your business, video marketing is one of the most effective types of content, outperforming other types of content when it comes to user engagement and lead generation. It’s engaging and holds the attention of your audience longer. Video content is an excellent way to show audiences how the products work or how to install them. The most engaging types of video content include tutorials, company culture videos, interviews and testimonials. A new universal backup camera has just been released? Show how it can be installed via a YouTube video.

When it comes to advertising and promoting, the trick is to identify your primary target audience. Once you know who they are and have created buyer personas, you can connect with them on the channels where they are most active.
