WhatsApp Marketing: The new way to reach your customers!

WhatsApp Marketing: The new way to reach your customers!

When you’re thinking about different marketing channels to talk and engage with your ideal customers, what is the first thing that comes to mind?

Probably Facebook with its 2.167 billion active users. Maybe Instagram with it’s 800 million active users? What about Twitter with its 330 million active users or LinkedIn that has 260 million active users. You’re probably on there too.

But what if we would tell you there is another platform out there, it is text-based, has more users than Instagram and LinkedIn combined. And we’re pretty sure you’re not on there yet.

It’s called WhatsApp.

And even though email marketing is crucial, giving you an open rate of maybe around 30% (if you’re doing an okay job), and that 30% is already way higher than you would ever get organically on Facebook. The average text message gets an open rate of around 98%.

That is the reason why chatbots work so well too. And that is precisely the reason that makes WhatsApp the most engaging marketing channel on the planet.

The reason why you probably never thought about using it as a marketing channel is that there has never been any real tool to help you manage your account and start engaging with your “followers” unless you had that one mobile phone on which the client with your business number was installed.

There’s also no advertising on WhatsApp, so the natural and lazy route of just buying some ads will get you nowhere.

So what do you need to do? When you also can’t track your success, you can’t search for groups to automatically join and promote your stuff?

Right now is the moment to start taking action, build a massive following, and start engaging with your real fans before all marketers all over the world start to figure out they are missing on this vast opportunity and spoil it for everyone.

But first things first.

Google AdWords for Your Business: A Step-by-Step Guide

Google AdWords for Your Business: A Step-by-Step Guide

Imagine you’re talking with one of your closest friends and they tell you about this interesting bird fact that they read. “Did you know there’s only one bird in the world that has nostrils at the end of its beak? It’s the… Ah… One second,” your friend says, hesitating.

“Hold on. Let me Google it.”

Google, the search engine giant, is both a noun and a verb. The act of searching online is often referred to as “googling” something (Google’s official feelings about using “Googling” to refer to searching on any other search engine aside.) That the public has strongly embraced the use of “Google” as a verb in our vernacular is unsurprising, considering the market share Google as compared to competitors. In 2017, Google averaged a net search share of 74.54%—while Yahoo, Bing, and others averaged a 5% to 10% market share.

With a high market share and around 3.5 billion searches per day, gaining visibility on Google is a goal for many company’s advertising efforts.

Google Featured Snippets: The Complete Guide To Hitting Position Zero On Google

Google Featured Snippets: The Complete Guide To Hitting Position Zero On Google

Since Google’s search engine was launched, companies and website owners have been competing against each other to hit the top spot on Google for particular keywords related to the products and services they offer.

As the internet grows, more and more businesses are launching a website and also tapping into the world search engine optimisation. Today, improving Google ranking of a website is considered one of the most important aspects of being successful on the internet.

While paid advertising solutions often provide effective results when trying to attract new visitors and grow sales over a short period, these methods can cost a lot of money.

The results provided by Google search rankings, also called organic search traffic, are usually considered more valuable. Traffic that lands on a website as the result of a search can be customised to be highly targeted – many companies have been able to adjust their search engine optimisation strategy in such a way to only attract visitors that are very likely to convert to a customer through their techniques.

The way Google indexes websites and determines which site should rank higher for particular keywords are continually changing. Google frequently announces new updates to their search algorithm. Google Hummingbird, Mobile Friendly Update, Panda Update and Penguin Update are only some of the most recent updates Google has made to their search algorithms, as reported by Search Engine Land.

The search giant also frequently launches new features that enhance the user’s experience while using their search engine. While companies were all battling for the top position on Google, which was usually referred to as position number one, many companies are now changing their strategy and instead aiming for position “0” (zero) to attract more people to their website.
