What Separates the Winners From the Losers in Search Engine Marketing

Posted Thu, November 14, 2013 by Julie Short

In many ways, search engine marketing is a "winner takes all" sort of endeavor. That is, in most markets there are a few companies that are attracting the lion's share of traffic, dominating the top sponsored listings and converting visitors into clients or customers at a much higher rate than their competitors.

While this is common knowledge, though, the factors that separate the "winners" from "losers" in search engine marketing aren't. So, if you're tired of putting together campaigns that seem to be overshadowed by other advertisers, here are the three things you need to be sure you have:

1. The very best keyword and market research. Many search engine marketing campaigns fail before they even get off the ground, simply because they aim for popular keywords and search phrases instead of profitable ones. In order to find the right buyers for your company, and avoid wasting money on the wrong keywords and phrases, it's important for your research to be targeted and specific. In addition, you want to know everything you can about customers you're trying to attract, beyond the search terms they prefer.

2. The right offer for every search phrase and add combination. If most of your search engine marketing simply leads potential buyers to your site's home page, then you are probably missing out on sales and marketing opportunities. Instead, you have to create the right partnership between search terms, ads, and marketing offers to envision what a potential customer might have in mind and suggest the next step that makes sense for them.

3. Some sort of mechanism for following up with potential customers. In most markets, very few people are going to make a purchase, or even request a personal meeting, the first time they visit your site. But, if you can convince them to sign up for your email newsletter, for example, or follow you on social media sites, then you've laid the groundwork for a relationship that can grow and continue in the future.

Because search engine marketing campaigns are optimized one incremental percentage point at a time, the real success – and the key to smashing your competitors – lies in constantly improving and becoming more efficient. Keep these three factors in mind, and you'll have a head start on all the other companies you’re bidding against.
