6. EMAIL MARKETING
Email marketing is a great way to drive traffic to your site or your blog, and to promote any offers, but it also means that you need a list to market to. Mailchimp is a free tool which allows you create emails easily using their templates. Don’t forget you can use your “Blog Content” on this one.
Let’s be honest if we offer consumers something FREE they are more than likely going to use your website again. Partnering with companies that have a large footprint is one way to drive interest and visitors to your site.
8. INFLUENCER MARKETING
Much like any strategy, research is the first step when it comes to Influencer Marketing.. Choose the social platform you want to focus on first. You can always expand to other platforms later but if you’re just starting out, stick with one. Ideally, your brand should already have a presence on this network or be looking to expand into it.
Then take a look at the type of influencers that are “right” for your business. You can also use Twitter analytics tools to identify potential influencers that will fit your campaigns.
