Advertising is one of the best ways to increase awareness about your company and get new customers and sell your product or service. In fact, businesses will spend around 10% or so of their overall budget on advertising/marketing. Without advertising, you won’t reach nearly as many customers and your brand may struggle to grow.

However, the type of advertising that used to be prevalent such as TV, newspaper or radio, are no longer nearly as popular. While these can still be used, they have been replaced by more effective and efficient digital techniques.

This article is going to take a closer look at some of these effective advertising techniques that are sure to work well in the digital age.

Influencer marketing!

Few advertising methods have taken off quite like influencer marketing has. It has become incredibly popular in recent years and shows no signs of slowing down. Influencer marketing is all about working with influencers or celebrities to market or advertise what you have to offer. You get instant access to their loyal fans, and this can be very powerful. These individuals hold a ton of influence over their fan bases, and if they are seen using something or tell their audience to check something out, they will often do it. Of course, be sure to choose an influencer who aligns with the industry your business is in.
The process for this type of advertising involves finding the right influencer, reaching out to them and then collaborating on a video, post or photo that they will put on their website, social media page or YouTube channel.

Better yet, there are apps out there that can do everything from add fun filters to pictures to edit hair in photo. All of this provides you and the influencer alike so many opportunities to create fun content that highlights your brand, product or service.

Provide deals or rewards!

There are few things people like more than free things. If something is given for free, you can bet people will be flocking to it. Because of this, offering something for free when someone becomes a customer or converts for you in another way can be a great advertising technique. This is because it will draw in many more people who may not have been interested otherwise.

You could give away a free e-book with the purchase of your software, a free shirt with every purchase over X amount of dollars, or any number of other things. All of this is exciting for people as getting something you didn’t pay for as a bonus always feels good.

In addition to offering things for free, you can also offer huge discounts or deals to draw in more attention and get more customers. If people see the word free or complimentary, or a major deal, they are likely to pay more attention to what you have to offer and what you are saying than if you went about things in a traditional manner.

PPC advertising...

PPC (or pay-per-click) is another advertising technique that is very useful in the digital age. This allows you to place ads right in the search engine results for a certain word, term or phrase. This can get your ads and products in front of a ton of eyes that may have never seen it otherwise. The best thing about PPC advertising is that you only pay when your ad is clicked. While not every click will be a sale, it can be a cost-effective way to advertise a product or service, and can let you know how many people are interested in what you have to offer. You also never need to worry about wasting your budget on those who have no interest in your service or product.
In order to get your placement, you will have to bif against other companies for the spot, and some can get competitive. The companies with the strongest bids will generally get the most favorable placements in search results.

In conclusion, these advertising techniques are sure to be effective in the digital age and will help your company find success.
