More often than not, setting goals gets skimmed over… We get it, you’re just excited to get to the good part of ‘making things happen’. But think of your goals like your sat nav postcode. It sets the destination and helps guide you.
Perhaps you want to increase revenue by 20% in 2022.
Well you can then set objectives on how you’ll break this down i.e 10% increase in revenue from social media channels or improve the ROI on paid media.
It’s important that you have clear direction on where you’re heading and how you’re going to measure that success (so you know when you achieve it, but can also double down if you’re not on track).
Targeting the right audience
Understanding who your potential clients & customers are and how they behave online is key for any online growth. Think about where you can find them i.e social media platforms, forums, search.
If you need help profiling your target market, you can use Google Analytics, Google Trends, arrange a focus group/interview previous clients/customers or talk to us to help identify your growth potential.
Have an eye on the competition with a Competitor Analysis
There’s amazing 3rd party tools out there, such as SEMRush, Raven Tools, that can help you assess the keywords that your competitors are using.
But you’ll also want to identify the type of content they’re using online… What platforms and placements i.e podcasts, blogs and where there are gaps for your business to get stand out online.
Knowing your weak spots
What internal factors are going to hinder your online growth? Maybe you lack internal resources and need additional support from a digital agency to help you deliver campaigns.
