There are many versatile marketing tools and solutions which marketers could engage in to promote their business brands and wares, but creative solutions must be activated regularly to have web consumers impressed on their minds and hearts for sales to be generated.

A dynamic marketing strategy that is attractive and compelling would generate more traffic to the web business sites as potential leads before further follow-up actions are undertaken to convert them into business prospects and customers. Driving consistent massive traffic to the website is crucial to the survival of the business in the market. However, the traffic should be preferably filtered to targeted niche markets that would support the business and brand.

1) Article Writing

Article writing is a very dynamic marketing strategy today in digital technology. Lots of web consumers are seeking high quality articles that publish useful and fresh content with value. Well written articles could draw in more web traffic than expected through traditional marketing strategies such as print marketing or cold calling.

Good articles could be on any topic that would be interesting or relevant to the reader. A lot of established and reputable article listing directories with high readership are on the Internet to boost the market presence of the business if the article is well written and relevant to user needs.

The more quality articles written and posted, the more leads would be generated, especially when the topic is targeted to specific niche markets. This would help the marketer save time, effort and cost in generating potential leads that are useful to build up the business quickly with bigger returns.

More business or brand information could be found on well written articles that are focused and well structured to present a favorable view of the business, brand or goods. Web consumers’ attention is readily captured through high quality articles that speak to the readers’ heart and mind to establish a favorable impression that encourages sales and promotions. Quality articles could be written personally in-house by the marketer or business owner for a more personal and passionate delivery; outsourced articles are also very common today for those with a good budget.

2) Business Blogging

Blogs are popular with ordinary consumers to pen their personal thoughts and ideas, but business blogging takes it a step further to introduce or recommend business brands and products or services to the market audiences. This is a more subtle approach than direct selling which does not augur very well in modern times.

Interesting content that could be related to the business or brand could be created and posted on various websites, both personal and outsourced. The more websites the blog is posted on, the more potential business leads could be generated organically.

Blog readers and other bloggers would be interested to connect with a professional blogger to exchange further information or gain better tips on preferred topics. Marketers who deploy blogging in driving traffic to their websites would stand to be noted as a market expert over time with consistent high quality blogs that are valuable and useful to readers.

Good blogs help readers to become potential business consumers very quickly as they become convinced of what is conveyed through the blog contents. If they should exercise their purchasing power, they would probably choose the site and brand in which they are familiar with through the blog information conveyed. Hence, blogs, especially business related blogs could be very powerful in swaying consumer decisions on brand support and purchasing of products.

3) Social Media

Social media have been making a strong impact on web consumers today with a great deal of hype and buzz in the marketplace. Many businesses, especially Internet businesses are becoming more aware of the dynamics of social media marketing that marketers and business owners are venturing into its realms with no bars held.

Social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are highly popular and effective to attract traffic to the web business sites. This would create more business opportunities for the marketer or business owner to interact with potential leads secured through the social media networks and find their preferred niche markets.

Marketers who indulge in social media marketing would need to grasp the concepts and skills in interacting or connecting with social media users to be fans and followers. As more social media users become fans and followers, the marketer or business owner would have more opportunities to engage with them in identifying their marketing needs and preferences. Marketers would be able to recommend the best of marketing products and services which would be well received by the potential leads.

However, sales could only happen if the marketer makes time to connect with the web traffic generated from the social media platform to its website. There is no limit to the number of potential leads a marketer deploying social media could secure with the billions available. It would be up to the marketer or business owner to identify and filter the billions of potential business leads using critical criteria that would boost the business operations and bottom lines of the company.

Drive Traffic with More Leads

Marketers or business owners who intend to indulge in social media marketing would need to have an account on one or more of their preferred social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn.

With an account, a business page and personal profile could be set up where the marketer could post up relevant contents regularly to attract like-minded web users. The web business site link should be included to allow interested web users to be directed to the site for further information on the business, brand or wares.

Marketers could also be proactive with online forums, e-newsletters and video generation to spread their expertise in certain areas for a wider market exposure. Online forums are excellent in connecting with massive online communities from all walks of life to identify the best of potential business leads that would drive traffic and boost the business in the market.
