Beyond the world of face to face marketing, virtual marketing has become just as effective. Virtual marketing is a form of online advertising that can be demonstrated through social media, email marketing, blogs, and display advertising. Through virtual marketing, wider audiences are generated through social sharing. One example of a successful virtual marketing campaign was created by Old Spice called “the man your man can smell like.” By advertising virtually on social media, Old spice was able to generate thousands of new sales increasing their projected sales by 60% than the previous year. Below are a few tips on how to master the virtual marketing realm:
1) Learn how to master your target audience.
Choosing the right audience can be crucial in how to market your product or service. Zero in on who you would like your target market to become.
2) Choose the right form of social media.
For example if you were to market a dog collar, you would want to stay away from advertising on websites such as Linked in or Snapchat. You would rather lean towards marketing on Facebook or Instagram to reach the right target audience.
3) Select suitable content on your social media platform
On social media you must be conscientious on how you deliver your marketing content. Figuring out how to speak to your audience to grasp their attention can be very beneficial.
4)Boost views through advertising
Advertising on social media can help you reach new customers that may later on become loyal to your company. It would be beneficial to spend money advertising because it creates more visibility.
5) Create content that provides higher engagement
By creating content that is engaging and entertaining to customers, it may stir further interest in what you are offering and lead to a higher sales outcome.
