What's in your marketing pie?
May 29, 2014
This new ClickMinded course will teach you all about Adwords, Facebook Ads, and Analytics
If you have a website or run your business online, I’m about to read your mind.
You want more people to visit your site, more people to like your stuff, and more people to feed you tacos.
To sum it up ... you need help with marketing.
Chief Sumo Noah taught me a really interesting way of thinking recently that I wanted to share with y’all.
Marketing is like a pie.
The whole pie is all of your customers and there are different ways to reach them: social media, email marketing, SEO, etc.
Some slices may be bigger as you may get more customers from SEO (20% of your pie) vs. content marketing (only 2% of your pie).
To truly be successful with your marketing, it’s important to try the different slices and find out which ones bring you the most customers.
One of the simplest and most successful marketing slices we’ve used at AppSumo is paid search advertising on Google and Facebook.
So if you own a hot sauce business and someone searches for "delicious hot sauce", you're able to show relevant ads and get that person on your site to buy your hot sauce.
It’s what’s helped us go from only a couple hundred customers to over 750,000+ of you amazing sumo-lings.
But if you don’t know what you’re doing with paid ads, it’s one of the riskier methods and can suck up a ton of your money.
If you’ve always been intimidated by paid marketing and want to finally add it to your marketing pie, I have something just for you :-)
