5 Core Advantages and Benefits Of SEO For Your Website
The Definition of Marketing...
"Getting the right message in front of the right people at the right time."
In order to get people to buy your products, enquire about your service, take action for your cause then getting in front of the right people at the right time with the right message is core to building a successful empire.
In the digital world it is meant to be super easy (but not necessarily so) to get in front of the right people.
As long as you can profile your exact target audiences you have a chance and the better you do it, the cheaper your marketing will be.
FACT: The purpose of marketing is to buy customers for the cheapest price.
Yes, marketing is all about buying customers. If I spend $100 on marketing and get 2 customers, I have paid $50 per customer. Good if I make much more from each customer. Bad if I don't. If I can change things to get 4 customers for $100 then I have improved my marketing.
So, if you advertise/market to the wrong people, your cost per customer will be high
And if you don't convey the right message, your cost per customer will be high
Or if you don't get in front of people when they are open to your offering, your cost per customer will be high
Stuff up all three and the cost of getting a customer will be higher than the money you make. That's a problem.
