Below we quickly run through popular Online Marketing terms and help describe the differences.
Internet Marketing encompasses all aspects of promoting your company on the World Wide Web. The list of departments that fall under Internet Marketing is vast and it increases often as new technology is created. PPC (Pay-Per-Click), SEO (Search Engine Optimization), SEM (Search Engine Marketing), Inbound Marketing, Social Marketing, Link Building, Link Baiting and Content Marketing are just a few departments covered under Internet Marketing. If you list your website on your business card or vehicle, then that is a form of Internet Marketing. It covers everything.
Search Engine Optimization
Website Architecture or the structure of a website is the root of search engine optimization. How fast your pages load, the way you name and structure pages, titles, text content, links, meta descriptions, photos, videos etc… SEO encompasses everything that has to do with on-site optimization.
Inbound marketing is the newest terminology for the old term, search engine optimization. Inbound marketing focuses on creating quality content that pulls people toward your company and product, where they naturally want to be. By aligning the content you publish with your customer’s interests, you naturally attract inbound traffic that you can then convert, close, and delight over time.
Local Search Engine Optimization
With the growing prominence of mobile devices such as phones and tablets, the search engines have shifted their attention in the direction of local search results based on your demographic area. The idea is to help you find what you are looking for quickly, such as your nearest Mexican restaurant. This is of great help to businesses who market to a small demographic area such as Middle Tennessee. Google has laid out a clear cut path for local companies to follow and there has never been a more perfect time to reap the benefits of a local Search Engine Optimization campaign.
Website Design/Development Firms
There is no doubt that the days of hiring a standard Web Developer to build your business website are over, or if you do hire a developer, you must make sure he or she is working closely with an Internet Marketing expert. As mentioned above with SEO and Inbound Marketing, it is very important to structure your website with keyword optimization in mind. There are currently over 300 variables in Google’s ranking algorithm (and growing daily) and several of these variables have to do with on-site optimization. If you do not use your website as a foundation for attracting new customers and generating consistent leads you are doing yourself a horrible injustice. You better believe your competitors are focusing on website optimization.
