Which one is a Good ads Agency

All businesses have some products to sell or some services to offer. And it’s the people out there for whom these services and the products are meant. So now how is a business going to let these people that this business has something useful for them. Because if they don’t know what is being offered, how are they supposed to spend money on it.

 

This is the job done by the advertisements, in the present day market; advertisement is sometimes a permanent department in large companies. While a company that doesn’t afford to maintain an exclusive department for advertisement, the advertisement agencies are there at their service.

 

The advertisement agencies do all the work related to advertisement, from developing to producing, and from creative ideas to presenting an advertisement. Once an ads agency is hired, then it’s the agency’s headache to look after everything that can be put under the department of advertising.

 

Which one is a good ads agency?

There are a lot of advertising agencies in the market. But here is the point, you cannot hire any agency and let them spend your money so that they can gain experience.

 

The first thing to see in an advertising agency is where it stands in the market. An agency that has made its reputation among all those competitors in the market has of course the potential to make you stand at a distinguished position among all your competitors in the market so that when your customer takes a look at market to find the best company the first one that comes into his notice will be you. Marketing Consultants, Advertising Agency!!! 360 Creative Inc. the art of marketing & the science of creativity

 

An agency that just works to complete it is not what a client demands. A good agency always keeps an eye on the market and has the latest updates on the trends in market so they can give the best suited advice to their client. This needs a team comprising of different professionals of different fields like designers, marketing specialists, writers, artists, psychologists, media analysts, researchers etc.

 

The markets are flooded with advertisers, and advertising has so much influenced the businesses that they spend a pretty amount of money on the advertisements. This excessive advertisement has left the audience with a negative feeling about the advertisement. None shows the slightest interest in the most appealing advertisement just because there is too much advertisement. Now what should replace it is the communication. The agencies will be more successful if they begin to communicate with the audience rather than advertising.

 

The best feature that an ads company must have is the ever evolving work strategy and tools. Because we are living in an ever evolving world and especially the business world will not be the same after even 2 or 3 years. And it will not be that easy to just adopt the contemporary trends and tools at once at that time, because it’s not about adopting, it’s all about developing and evolving. If an agency works with all these features, then there is no way they let their client down.

 

Keys to Successful Online Marketing

With ever changing business tools the advertising and marketing tools and techniques have also changed from the most primitive methods to the modern marketing like online advertising and marketing.

 

You can hardly find anyone using those primitive marketing techniques in the present day business. While shifting from the primitive marketing to the online marketing almost everything from the very basic tools to the advanced tools has been replaced by the most modern digital tools and latest techniques.

 

Now the question is how a marketing campaign can be successful where everyone including your potential competitors is using the same latest techniques and tools for their marketing campaign. This is a big challenge for a marketing campaign to stand unique from its parallel competing campaigns in the view of target audience.

 

Now here are some key ideas that can help understand how a campaign can stand alone in the eyes of a target user.

The use of banners can be made to boost up the output of the online marketing campaign if the banners are designed keeping in view the taste of the target class. These banners can be put on any website but the best place to put these banners is a website that is related in any aspect to the product or the service you are marketing. The banners must be not be so much heavy that they take pretty time to load, instead they should be designed not to take more time to load. Online Marketing Agency , Online Marketing !!! 360 Creative Inc. the art of marketing & the science of creativity

 

The previous visiting record of specific user can be put to use by analyzing it to predict the interests of that specific user thus making it sure that the message that goes to this user is in accordance with his likes and dislikes or else he will not pay any attention thus the resources used in marketing go in vain.

 

The marketing campaign can be much more successful if the user comes to visit your page by him. To make him visit your page instead of putting your banners on other pages that he visits, you will have to make your page a place from where the visitor can get benefits. This can be done in the form of informative stuff on your page, so when the visitor finds your page informative or beneficial he develops an attachment your brand or company name. To make your page such informative is part of a successful marketing campaign.

 

We all know the power of social networks. The social sites and the public forums are the best places to put the informative stuff about your product or services. For example creating a page with name of your brand or product and regularly updating it with informative and interesting stuff will yield more output with a comparatively less input. The regular participation on public forums will also yield good results.

 

A team of experts in customer behavior analysis, psychologists, designers combined with creative ideas can prove to be a successful marketing depending on the commitment of your team with their work and it’s up to you to find such a team and then give them the task of marketing your product online.

How to Make a Best Web Design

The markets are flooded with experts who can design your website. Some experts can give you a really good design at reasonable cost while on the other hand they can just charge you for a design that will not help your website to attract visitors.

 

The problem is, you cannot tell how good is an expert just by looking at his face, in fact you will never know how much good is a designer until he designs your website and he won’t do it until you pay for it, and of what good is to know that the designer was not of the caliber you looked for after you have paid him.

 

But there are a few key characteristics that a good web design should posses.

 

The website must be designed for all users; this means a user with Firefox must be open your website as well as a user with internet explorer or opera or Google chrome. The design must be compatible with almost all browsers and almost all versions of all browsers, because most of the users do not bother to upgrade their browser to the latest version.

 

The fast age people want fast page and fast downloading. Lower the downloading speed of page, lower will be the organic traffic on your website. Thus if you want more and more visitors to come again and again on your website, which you surely do, then try to keep the load on the page as reduced as possible. The graphics used must be chosen carefully so that they don’t reduce the page speed. Many of your visitors may be using devices which do not allow graphics, using a ALT HTML tag will at least let them have an idea about the pictures that weren’t displayed on their device. Web Development , Website Design Agency , Website Development !!! 360 Creative Inc. the art of marketing & the science of creativity

 

The websites appearance must be in your control to enable you to change its style time to time. This can be done by separating the content and the presentation. The modern technologies like CSS can do it for you. There are other technologies that might be able to do the same, but most popular among them is the CSS (cascading style sheets).

 

While using multimedia on the website, it is more convenient to use streaming media rather than to let the user to wait for the media to download. A good design always has space for visitors with all browsers and with different internet speeds by providing them the substitute of the media if their browser doesn’t support it or if they have low speed connections. This can be done by giving in text what was given in the multimedia.

 

We all know that nothing is perfect in reality. Everything always needs modifications and so does your website, thus encourage your visitors to give feedback in forms of polls or surveys or the “like” and “dislike” buttons can help you know what your visitors think of your website and its design.

 

Thus a key to the successful business is a quality website and the services of a web development agency or specialized web developers. But your choice of an agency or a web developer can affect your business in both negative and positive ways. Now it’s up to you that what kind of a service provider you choose for your website.

Website Design and Development Process

In designing a website there are number of steps involved from gathering information to the creation of your website and at the end the maintenance work it needs to be up to date and running. This process varies from designer to designer but the basic step remains the same. Here are the steps to creative a well design website.

Step1: First step in developing a website is to gather information. A lot needed to be taken into account while planning for the look and theme of your website. So designer has to understand the clients business properly for which he might need information regarding clients business. What purpose does this website going to serve to the viewers; what client wants to achieve from this website. Two most common goals are to make money or share information. Then another important question would be to ask; is there any specific group of people that are most likely to help your goals and what kind of information or content your target audience would be looking for on your website.

Step2: The designer now needs to put up a plan for your website. It is where he develops a site map. This map shows the main topic areas and sub topics of your website.

Step3: in this phase the designer determines what kind of feel and look to be given to the site. The key factor is considering target audience reaction to it. The company logo and color theme should be kept in mind while deciding about the site theme. A designer would create one or more sample designs for the site. It might be just an image to see what the final product will look like. The designer should allow you to view your project through out the design and development stage so you can give your views like and dislikes on the site design. In this step the communication between you and your designer is very important.

Step4: This is the stage where the site is actually made. The designer would take all the elements and graphics from the prototype and use them in the actual functional site. The designer makes the home page then the shell for interior of the page. Shell will sever as the template for the content pages. Other elements like interactive contact forms, flash animations and shopping carts are applied and made functional in this point.

Step5: At this step the designer will address the final details and test the website. The designer will test the functionality of different elements and other script. He will deal with the compatibility issues arising from viewing the site on different web browsers. He has to make sure that it can be viewed at latest web browsers.

Step6: if you want your costumers to repeatedly visit your website you have to offer new content or product on a regular basis. Many of the designers offer maintenance packages with reduced rates based on how often you want to him to make changes or additions.

Online Marketing Components part 2

3. Pay Per Inclusion

Paid inclusion is a search engine marketing product where the search engine company charges fees related to inclusion of websites in their search index. Paid inclusion products are provided by most search engine companies, the most notable exception being Google.

The fee structure is both a filter against superfluous submissions and a revenue generator. Typically, the fee covers an annual subscription for one webpage, which will automatically be cataloged on a regular basis. A per-click fee may also apply. Each search engine is different. Some sites allow only paid inclusion, although these have had little success. More frequently, many search engines, like Yahoo!, mix paid inclusion (per-page and per-click fee) with results from web crawling. Others, like Google (and a little recently, Ask.com), do not let webmasters pay to be in their search engine listing (advertisements are shown separately and labeled as such).

Some detractors of paid inclusion allege that it causes searches to return results based more on the economic standing of the interests of a web site, and less on the relevancy of that site to end-users.

Often the line between pay per click advertising and paid inclusion is debatable. Some have lobbied for any paid listings to be labeled as an advertisement, while defenders insist they are not actually ads since the webmasters do not control the content of the listing, its ranking, or even whether it is shown to any users. Another advantage of paid inclusion is that it allows site owners to specify particular schedules for crawling pages. In the general case, one has no control as to when their page will be crawled or added to a search engine index. Paid inclusion proves to be particularly useful for cases where pages are dynamically generated and frequently modified.

Paid inclusion is a search engine marketing method in itself, but also a tool of search engine optimization, since experts and firms can test out different approaches to improving ranking, and see the results often within a couple of days, instead of waiting weeks or months. Knowledge gained this way can be used to optimize other web pages, without paying the search engine company.

4. Banner Advertising Programs

Cost Per Impression (CPI) / Cost Per Thousand (CPM), Cost per Action (CPA) / Cost Per Click (CPC)
The web banner or banner ad form of online advertising entails embedding an advertisement into a web page. It is intended to attract traffic to a website by linking them to the web site of the advertiser. Banner Ad programs can be structured into any of the following types of programs.

Cost Per Impression is a phrase often used in online advertising and marketing related to web traffic. It is used for measuring the worth and cost of a specific e-marketing campaign. This technique is applied with web banners, text links, e-mail spam, and opt-in e-mail advertising, although opt-in e-mail advertising is more commonly charged on a Cost Per Action (CPA) basis.

The Cost Per Impression is often measured using the CPM (Cost Per Thousand; “M” is the Roman numeral for 1,000) metric. (A CPM is the cost of one thousand (1,000) impressions.)

CPM is considered the optimal form of selling online advertising from the publisher’s point of view. A publisher gets paid for each ad that is shown.

This type of advertising arrangement closely resembles Television and Print Advertising Methods for speculating the cost of an Advertisement. Often, industry agreed approximates are used. With Television the Nielsen Ratings are used and Print is based on the circulation a publication has.

For Online Advertising, the numbers of views can be a lot more precise. When a user requests a Web Page, the originating server creates a log entry. Also, a third party tracker can be placed in the web page to verify how many accesses that page had.

CPM and/or Flat rate advertising deals are preferred by the Publisher/Webmaster because they will get paid regardless of any action taken.

For Advertisers a Performance Based system is preferred. There are two methods for Paying for Performance: 1) CPA – Cost per Action/Acquisition and 2) CPC – Cost per Click Through.

5. Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is a method of promoting web businesses in which an affiliate is rewarded for every visitor, subscriber, customer, and/or sale provided through his/her efforts. It is a modern variation of the practice of paying a finder’s fee for the introduction of new clients to a business. Compensation may be made based on a certain value for each visit (Pay per click), registrant (Pay per lead), or a commission for each customer or sale (Pay per sale), or any combination.

Merchants like affiliate marketing because it is a “pay for performance model”, meaning the merchant does not incur a marketing expense unless results are realized.

Some e-commerce sites run their own affiliate programs while other e-commerce vendors use third party services provided by intermediaries to track traffic or sales that are referred from affiliates. Some businesses owe much of their growth and success to this marketing technique, although research has shown in general the increase to be approximately 15-20% of online revenue.

Merchants who are considering adding an affiliate strategy to their online sales channel have different technological solutions available to them. Some types of affiliate management solutions include: standalone software, hosted services, shopping carts with affiliate features, and third party affiliate networks.

Revenue generated online grew quickly. The e-commerce website, viewed as a marketing toy in the early days of the web, became an integrated part of the overall business plan and in some cases grew to a bigger business than the existing offline business. Many companies hired outside affiliate management companies to manage the affiliate program.

6. Online Reputation Management

Online reputation management is a developing field that encompasses public relations and search engine optimization.

Consumers go online to make buying decisions. When they research brands using search engines, the results that they observe often influence how they behave. Consumer generated media sites offer the general public the opportunity to express their views of brands. This information can be found in search engine results. Members of the public such as competitors, and ex-employees can take part in the online conversation which can adversely affect the brand reputation.

Online reputation management is a field that involves the monitoring of online conversation, and the action undertaken, to improved brand reputation within search engine results.

The most rewarding aspect of online marketing is the brand recognition that comes with your campaign. The actually campaign effectiveness can be tracked in terms of dollars through ROI calculations.
