Attract Your Ideal B2B Clients with Digital Marketing

Have you thought about using social media to attract your ideal clients that are other businesses? These days, it's so easy to reach thousands of people with social media advertising, but are we reaching the right people and saying the right things at the right time?

Join our free meetup to discuss how to attract our ideal B2B clients with digital marketing.

Finding Business to Business Clients

Often times, people make the mistake of dismissing Facebook as a viable option for marketing to other businesses. You may think that the executives and entrepreneurs you're trying to reach will not see your Facebook ads because they aren't scrolling the news feed. You opt for LinkedIn instead.

Let me bust that myth for you that Facebook isn't just millennials and moms.

Facebook has a vast network that reaches across the globe with mobile site and app partnerships numbering over 62,000. If anyone has a Facebook, Instagram, or What's App account, they can be reached with their paid...

How many visitors do YOU need to your landing pages to make sales?

Do you sell things online with sales pages or checkout pages?

One of the things that I help clients with is improving their sales pages to position their offers more appropriately to actually close sales. This is particularly important when you are marketing your business digitally.

It takes time for people to trust brands they purchase from. Unknown businesses are at a great disadvantage for this because they don't have broadly known reputations in their industries yet. For this reason, you likely need to have some sort of precursor before your website visitors look at your online store and check out through your shopping cart. This can be handled via a sales page.

How do you combat being an unknown brand?

When you go to the store, do you pick out Crest or Colgate toothpaste based on brand recognition? Or do you choose a brand of toothpaste that you've never heard of before? Most of the time, people choose the brands that are well-known and advertised, as this builds...

Hello and welcome to Social Media Traffic School with Sally Hendrick.

That’s me! I’m Sally, and today I’m wondering if you’ve ever wanted to create a digital course or online program….or maybe you already have created one, and when you started using it with your clients, you found out that wasn’t exactly the direction you needed to take with them.

Well, that sucked, didn’t it? You likely spent weeks or months getting everything perfect, too, and then you had to go back and make a lot of adjustments.

I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to do that anymore, and if this is your first program or course,...

The 3 Phases of Advertising You May Be Missing

There are 3 phases of advertising: Awareness, Consideration, and Conversion. Most people want to start out with the Conversion phase (also known as the Close phase) to sell their goods and services without properly warming up their audiences. This is too much too soon. It would be similar to walking up to a perfect stranger and asking them to join your $3,500 mastermind.

Think of the digital journey as a real customer journey

Imagine having a storefront. How do you get foot traffic there? You can rely on surrounding stores to bring traffic, put up flyers, advertise with billboards, use Facebook or Instagram ads, etc.

These methods of advertising are to cold traffic or audiences, those who may not know anything about you.

To translate this to digital relationships, these would be the people who are just seeing your Facebook ad for the first time or coming across your website somehow, either by you sending them there through social media or by their search on Google or Bing...

How to Know Where Your Website Traffic is Coming From with Google UTM Codes

Why do you want to know where you website traffic comes from?

If you know that your traffic is coming from LinkedIn, then you can measure the return on investment of the time and money you spend on that platform. The same goes for Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and other links.

You can even measure the places on your website that get clicks and the places that don't. It helps to understand where traffic comes from, so you know where to place your efforts and how to organize your website.

What are Google UTM codes?

A UTM code is a simple code that you can attach to a custom URL in order to track a source, medium, and campaign name. This enables Google Analytics to tell you where searchers came from as well as what campaign directed them to you, such as a Facebook ad, your Instagram profile, or your LinkedIn article.

How do you build a link with Google UTM codes?

Now don't be afraid of Google UTM Codes. They're simple to build by visiting this...

7 Steps to Nurture Your Followers to Keep Them Coming Back for More

Why you want to nurture your followers once they become leads

Just getting a lead into your email subscriber database is not enough. In fact, very few people who get on your list will buy something right away. They require more warming up.

Consider sending them a video welcome sequence at first, but then after that sequence is over, put them into a nurture sequence to add more value. This will help develop trust in your brand.

Content for an Email Nurture Sequence

If you are blogging (or podcasting), that's one of the most obvious pieces of content you can send to your subscribers. Take the first few lines of your blog post, put them into your email, then include a hyperlink to have them click over to your blog post.

The reason you want them to click is because you can tag that in your email marketing software, and you can track the clicks on your site if you have the Facebook Pixel installed.

Use Facebook Live Streams as Content to Email

When you go live on Facebook,...

Software You Need to Be a Digital Marketing Pro

Why do we need special software for digital marketing?

Marketing online is different than marketing in person. You don't have the opportunity to speak to someone face-to-face, which automatically warms up a relationship.

So you have to figure out how to warm up relationships in a different way....a digital way.

Marketing to Cold Audiences

If you were at a party, you wouldn't walk up to someone you've never met and tell them about your latest offer, would you?

No! You wouldn't. You would start out with a hello, introduce yourself, and ask the other person what they do for a living or something else non-invasive, not super-personal.

With cold audiences online, you must walk through the same process of warming up to people with stories.

Digitally, the way you do this is by putting stories out in the form of social media or blog content. If you have your Facebook tracking codes, or pixels, in place, you can create baskets of the people, called custom audiences, who interact with...

How to Grow Your Blog (and Podcast) Following with Social Media

Why do you want to grow your blog (and podcast) following with social media?

First of all, it's the fastest and least expensive way to grow a digital following. Social media is usually the first digital introduction into your business. Once you build a following, if you install tracking and use email marketing software, you can re-target ads to your blog visitors and track who opens your emails and clicks on your links.

Create a brand story

It's important to start with stories about why you do what you do.

According to Google, "A brand story is a cohesive narrative that encompasses the facts and feelings that are created by your brand (or business, if you prefer). Unlike traditional advertising, which is about showing and telling about your brand, a story must inspire an emotional reaction."

Just saying you're passionate about your business is not enough. Ask yourself, "What happened to make you start your business?" Was there a defining moment...

How to Raise Your Influence Online with a Media Page

How Do I Raise My Influence Online?

If you have been on podcasts, done interviews, maybe even gotten a quote or mention in a magazine or on TV, all that is great! So how do you let people know about these things without having to toot your own horn all the time?

Create a Media or Mentions Page on Your Website

First of all, it helps to have a page on your website that displays all the things you've done. You can have a logo listing going across from left to right of various publications, and you can link to your articles or podcast episodes from them.

For example, I have been featured in Social Media Examiner and USA Weekly, among other places. My website shows these logos with links to the original source.

Display Awards and Achievements

Not only can you display articles, podcasts, and interviews, consider displaying awards and achievements that you've earned, such as badges for programs you've completed. The following are my Blitz Metrics Pro Badges for...

How to Use Automated Chatbot Comment Triggers to Grow Your Following During a Launch

How Can I Use Automated Chatbots to Launch an Offer?

Instead of doing a webinar with webinar software, use Facebook Live to launch. Combine this with an automated chatbot comment trigger to launch an email sequence.

In this video, I show you how to use Chatfuel to do just this.

Why Do You Want to Grow Your Chatbot Subscribers?

The reason you want to grow your chatbot subscribers is because you can create re-marketing audiences out of those people and send them Facebook ads. This helps to deepen the relationship you have with your online subscribers without having to message them all the time.

Create a Chatbot that Lives on Facebook Messenger

If you'd like to know how to create a chatbot that lives on Facebook Messenger when someone comes to your page, read this article published on Social Media Examiner, also by Sally Hendrick.
