Loyalty is a funny sort of word. We are loyal to our friends and we are loyal to our partners and family. Sometimes we even feel a certain level of loyalty to a store or website that carries out favorite items and the best prices. Some stores offer loyalty reward points to get us to buy even more and save even more. Yet, on the whole, what does loyalty count for?

Perhaps you might consider your home/cell phone company, your credit card company, your bank or your mortgage company. How loyal do you feel toward them? How loyal do you think they are toward you? Are they quick to notify you of any special offers that are usually aimed at “brand new customers only” or do you have to call them and threaten to change to another company in order to get a deal from them?

In the past, businesses relied on referrals more than they relied on advertising. A certain local establishment can be a town landmark yet does not employ any kind of marketing campaign because it has excellent word-of-mouth. Presently, there are so many marketing strategies aside from referrals which any small business can employ. However, the power of referrals is still going strong, making it a must for local businesses.

Unless your customer is that happy with your services, you cannot expect them to refer you to their friends and family without you motivating them first. This is why most local businesses have a referral program wherein they reward customers for their referrals. The idea of giving out incentives will usually mean that a business has to spend money in order to make money. But if this strategy is carried out wisely, business owners need not worry about throwing cash into the drain.

Why PPC and SEO Work Better Together

Internet Marketing Strategy Using Search Engin...

Image by hongxing128 via Flickr

The best online marketing campaigns use complimentary short- and long-term online marketing strategies together: PPC and SEO. It is reasonable to say this with almost no regard for a business’ size and type, if its goal is to increase online exposure, create a larger customer base, and ultimately establish healthier profits. Pay Per Click marketing is the easy-to-manipulate strategy that produces immediate results and measurable data, while Search Engine Optimization takes time to effectively develop and launch, as well as to begin to show any quantifiable results. So for companies preparing to invest in a more robust SEO and PPC management strategy, it makes sense to get one firm that can do both and will approach the two as synergistic, complimentary components of one campaign.

The funny thing about pay per click management is that as a service centered on internet-based performance, you might think that using a powerful online search engine would be an effective way to generate a list of worthwhile PPC management firms. They operate on the web, after all; shouldn’t the web be how you find them? But because many excellent PPC management firms generate a lot of their business the old-fashioned way, through networking, personal connections, and references, they don’t always have the best search rankings. This makes firing up your browser and finding the right PPC company for your online marketing needs more difficult.
