5 Benefits of Digital Marketing For Manufacturers

We are living in an ever-changing world. Nothing more so than the global situation we currently find ourselves in over the last two years. The speed at which the scenario has changed reminds me of the rapidly evolving world of technology.

The growth in technology has propelled the manufacturing industry to another level of efficiency. And digital marketing is, has, and will continue to add to that. The most disappointing thing from a person who works in digital marketing and can see the huge benefits it has on businesses, not just the manufacturing space, is many companies still fail to implement it.

In this GrowTraffic blog, we’ll discuss what digital marketing is and the benefits your business can get by implementing a digital marketing strategy in the manufacturing industry.

What Is Digital Marketing?

Digital marketing, also referred to as online marketing, is the promotion of brands to connect with potential customers using the internet and other forms of digital communication.

Digital communication includes email, social media, and web-based advertising, but also text and multimedia messages as a marketing channel. Essentially, if a marketing campaign involves digital communication, it’s digital marketing.

Digital Marketing Benefits For Manufacturing Companies

Build Brand Awareness

Digital marketing for manufacturers is one of the best and the most effective ways to build brand awareness. By creating a website and optimising the important keywords, individuals are likely to find you through organic searches.

In addition, having a presence on social media platforms is also likely to boost the overall awareness of your brand. Manufacturers can build brand awareness by:

– Getting old and current customers to follow your company on various social media platforms

– Introduce a hashtag strategy so your conversation can easily be searched

– Create social media groups and initiate conversations

– Create a team that develops high-quality content and SEO strategies

– Formulate an effective Pay per click (PPC) strategy

Greater Reach/Target Market

Traditional marketing like posters and leaflets only have a maximum reach, whereas, in digital marketing techniques you have more freedom over your audience. The greater benefit is control if you wish to have a budget with your marketing strategy. You can target certain locations, age groups, interests, and hobbies.

Social media is an excellent avenue to establish your presence, solidify your brand, and reach more prospects. With this, you have more freedom posting creative content and boosting them to reach more of your demographic.

Some of the other digital marketing activities that will be very advantageous to your manufacturing business are investing in websites, PPC, analytics, CRM, and automation.

Establishing Credibility

Credibility in any industry is important, especially in the manufacturing space. The thing that sets the best companies apart is being able to demonstrate this credibility alongside your expertise.

This can only be done if you can demonstrate the fact that you do know about the niche in which your organisation is claiming to be an expert. With the help of digital marketing techniques like blogs and how-to tutorials, an organisation can easily achieve this.

Increase Lead Conversation

If your business has the habit of initially contacting your potential customers and doesn’t follow up on the conversation, then you’re unlikely to have turned the lead into a customer anyway.

For potential customers, they need to think you value them. Constant contact keeps you in the mind of your customers, they may not become a legitimate lead the first time, but when they need a product or service within your industry you’ll be the first company they think of.

This can be done by digital marketing techniques such as emails, newsletters, promotions on social media and more marketing automation. 80% of marketers credit their success to marketing automation.

Repeated Custom

It is financially easier and more effective to retain your customers than bring in new customers. Your existing customers are familiar with the quality of products your organisation produces, not only that they know how you operate and therefore it is an easier process for both parties.

Keeping this in mind, you need to set aside resources and have a marketing budget to retain your existing customers. This will also help in building customer loyalty and will also increase the chances of your organisation getting recommended to others.

Should My Web Designer Understand SEO?

Once upon a time, web design and SEO used to be one discipline. They essentially grew out of the same place and, even now, the two skillsets are intrinsically linked.

After all, you can’t be optimising websites for SEO without those websites being built first. And you can’t be building websites with no concern for how they will perform once they’ve been set live (or you shouldn’t be, anyway).

And that’s still as true now as it ever was. So, in answer to the question ‘does my web designer need to understand SEO?’, the answer is, most definitely, yes. Of course they do. It’s blinking obvious that they need to!

Social media. It’s a rum old thing, ain’t it?!

It seems that every day there’s a new platform introduced, one bought out by someone else, one dropping off the radar.

Just as soon as you’ve got your head around one social media platform, it turns out that its no longer down wiv da kids, and they’ve all moved somewhere else anyway. There’s just you and your Nan left, liking each other’s cat videos.

Or, at least, as a thirty-something with a nine year old son, that’s how I feel! I’ve no sooner figured out one social media channel he’s using, and he’s lost interest in that one and has moved on to something completely new.
