    3 Effective Marketing Tactics for Mother's Day

    Posted by Cindy Le on

    mother's day marketing strategies

    It’s finally May. The sun is shining and the flowers are blooming, and it is almost time to celebrate the most important women in your life!

    For brands and retailers, it is an opportunity to increase profits with key Mother’s Day marketing tactics! According to the National Retail Federation, Mother’s Day is the third highest grossing seasonal event in the United States. Mother’s Day is also much larger than Father’s Day because gifts for mom typically tend to cost more. It is also a known fact (but not surprising) that most Mother’s Day shoppers wait until the last minute to shop for gifts!

    This means that it is perfect timing for you to start marketing for Mother’s Day. Here are some strategies that you can put into use this Mother’s Day:

     1. PPC Campaigns

    If you have the budget, pay-per-click campaigns become especially useful the week leading up to Mother’s Day because all of the last minute shoppers frantically scouring the internet for gifts for mom. Remember to include keywords that target stepmoms, aunts, grandmothers, wives, sisters, and daughters.

     2. Social Media

    Pinterest becomes especially important around Mother’s Day due to consumers looking for shopping or DIY inspiration for a unique gift for mom. This is key for brands that are not normally geared towards the Mother’s Day crowd.

    Also - Remember that with RageOn, you can create custom Mother’s Day-inspired designs and post them across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. to generate sales!

    3. Facebook & Instagram Advertising Campaigns

    Facebook and Instagram are great outlets for targeting specific demographics that you believe will purchase your products, and for targeting custom audiences. You can upload a list of your past purchasers onto Facebook Audiences and create a lookalike audience from them in order to find consumers with the highest chance of converting on your store. You can also try some interest based targeting once you understand your ideal customer profile and demographic.

    How Instagram's New Feature Can Benefit Your Shopify Store

    Posted by Cindy Le on

    "With the vast adoption of mobile, more and more people (especially millennials) are learning of brands and making purchases through Instagram.

    As a Shopify store owner, this is now more important than ever since Instagram just launched a new product tagging feature that is currently available to approved businesses in the United States, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Brazil.

    This brand new feature allows the Shopify store to directly tag their products inside of their posted Instagram picture. This means that your fans can access and shop your products directly from Instagram.

    To access this shopping experience, your fans would click on the Instagram photo that you tagged to display the product name and the product price. Once they click “Shop Now”, it will bring them to the product page on your website where they can go through your shopping experience, and be tracked by your website’s pixels and cookies.

    instagram product tagging

    So how do you tag products in your posts on Instagram?

    Once your store is approved for shopping on Instagram, you will want to update to the latest version of the Instagram app on your mobile device. You would then want to enable product tagging within your Instagram profile. In order to enable product tagging, click on the gear (or settings) icon on your profile, tap Shopping (under Business Settings), select the product catalog that you want to use, and tap Done.

    If you don’t see Shopping under your Business Settings, this means that your account is not yet approved for shopping on Instagram or still under review for access to the feature.

    To tag products in your posts:

    1. Select a photo and add a caption, effects and filters
    2. Tap the products in the photo that you want to tag
    3. Enter the names of the products you want to tag, then select them as they appear in the search box
    4. Tap Done
    5. Tap Share

    It’s possible to tag products in both new and older/existing posts on your Instagram account. Up to 5 products can be tagged per single-image post or 20 products per multi-image post.

    This new Instagram feature will help you better convert your Instagram audience and also makes purchasing on mobile easier than ever for your fans!

    9 Tips To Retarget And Retain Your Clients

    Posted by Cindy Le on

    During this age of online competition where there is a constant struggle to be the best or have your online presence be forgotten, it's difficult to keep your clients engaged. This is because there are so many offers out there that continuously try to pull them out of your brand's reach.

    So, the best way to increase your clientele and be able to continue grabbing their attention is by remarketing or retargeting. It's a method which surely works. It's also very light on the pocket of the investor when done correctly.

    Below are the 9 best possible ways to retarget and retain your clients (target audience) which will help your brand to grow and beat your competitors.

    1. Buck Up Your SEO

    The first thing that you are supposed to do is bucking up your SEO on both your blogs and your website. It's essential to make use of the latest SEO techniques if you want a large chunk of the audience to turn your way. Those days are obsolete when dumping specific keywords in an article got you the desired results online.

    Google penalizes this practice, and the audience out there has grown smart, now being capable of identifying a blog post decked with keywords. Strong content and strong SEO will attract your desired audience towards your product.

    2. Identify Your Audience

    Know who your audience is because without that, all the SEO and content best practices are useless. It's recommended to create complete profiles of all your customers with information regarding their age, gender, career, income, lifestyle, etc.

    It's also essential to know what they are expecting from you as a brand (their pain points) and whether or not you're fulfilling all their desires/needs. Deepen your research and try to find all those intricate details as this will distinguish you and your brand from the rest. If you are already using Facebook advertising, we recommend using Audience Insights to learn more about who your customers are.

    3. Create Engaging Content

    Both your customers and Google’s algorithm always appreciate online content that's unique, engaging, to the point, and relevant. It should immediately address the issues of your customers and present a suitable solution to it. This increases your SERP ranking and also adds to your clientele.

    4. Control Your Expenses By Deciding A Budget

    Knowing your limitations and funds is extremely important before engaging in a marketing campaign to either reach out to new clients or for retaining the ones you already have. Set your goals according to your budget as marketing and retargeting strategies usually work on a cost-per-click basis.

    5. Choose The Right Platform

    Finding and using the right platform is very important when it comes to retargeting as you should know the best way to engage with your audience. Facebook ads, display ads, and email marketing are some of the best ways to retarget your audience based upon abandoned carts, etc. Make smart choices and don't hasten your way into it.

    6. Create A Target Audience List

    A good business analytic would know how much time someone would spend on their site on an average and that's very important as it mainly impacts the client's response. It's a smart move to target people who spend at least five minutes or more on your site or someone who added something to their cart and left.

    You need to judge how serious they were about purchasing your product or service and how to turn their interest into a possible sale. These people (who show interest) are your primary goal when it comes to the kind of visitors you should target rather than those who visited for mere ten seconds or so.

    7. Create A Remarketing Agenda

    You can use the list approach to know your audience, or you can do what a smart business person would: track your visitors/audience by using cookies and pixels. There isn't only one option or path that leads to retargeting. Make your own retargeting strategy based upon what you think would resonate best with your target demographic.

    8. Develop Your Ads

    It's essential that your ads have an encapsulating call to action (CTA). It's foolish to have just one or two ads in this ferociously competitive market; try to have a few of them which are relevant and attractive. Keep a strict check on them, so you know which ones are effective and which need some more work.

    You need to brainstorm all kinds of copy and creative that your audience will respond to and then pick the best one. It gets very redundant to see the same ad continuously so try to continuously add new content, even if it just means you changing the color scheme to keep the audience's interest intact.

    9. Keep Recapitulating

    Retargeting is your brand’s chance to make a strong second impression to potential customer. You shouldn’t let this chance go in vain. So, keep a regular check on your ads. Monitoring, analyzing, and optimizing them strictly is something that should be on your daily to-do list. It's not going to happen immediately, though. If you want your ad campaign to work then A/B testing should a priority as this keeps your advertising campaigns alive and productive (continually changing to retain clients).

    Wrapping It Up

    Retargeting and retaining your brand’s clients is possible if you follow some of the tips mentioned above. However, you’ll need to be patient and do the required amount of research to ensure you’re on the right track to hopefully gain the results you want.

    Facebook A/B Testing

    Posted by Cindy Le on

    facebook a/b testing

    Marketing a business in this digital age may often seem daunting, but in reality, digitization makes marketing easier than ever, especially with tools like Facebook’s split testing. Previously it was extremely difficult to analyze which of your advertisement was gathering the most profit for you, and which one needed to be stopped. Let us teach you the basics of A/B testing and how it can greatly benefit your business!

    What exactly is A/B testing?

    Split testing or A/B testing is a Facebook Advertising feature that collects statistics on your different advertisement tests and compares them against each other to find out which of them yielded a benefit for your strategy and which one was inefficient.

    A/B testing gives accurate results and is easy to implement. Furthermore, it can be used for testing anything, whether it’s determining which images/creatives work best, to which call to action plan attracts a greater audience, etc.

    A/B testing is a very important tool for marketers. It has proven to greatly increase ROI, often in the 10x range, and not only that, but it helps businesses determine what their target audience prefers to see as well as how different variations like color schemes and images affect the consumer response to ads.

    Steps to take for the most successful Facebook A/B testing:

    1. Test a single variable:

    It is very easy to get carried away with split testing, creating vastly different ads and then comparing them to each other. That makes it difficult for you to determine which factor contributed towards the success of that advertisement.

    Instead, when creating an A/B test, your ads should be almost identical to each other with the exception of one major variable. Doing so will make analyzing which creative strategy was the most successful for you, easier.

    2. Use multiple ad sets:

    There are two ways to place an ad on Facebook - you can either place all your ad variations within one ad set, or you can place them under separate ad set. Going the ‘separate’ route is the better choice as this gives a more comprehensive comparison which makes it easier to clearly identify which ad is more successful.

    3. Use the right audience:

    Ideally, you should have a large enough audience for these tests, which are demographically accurate for your marketing campaign. If your target audience is too small, you will not be able to gather the most accurate representation.

    However, make sure that the audience you are using for these tests is different than your other Facebook campaigns, or it might lead to biased results.

    4. Set the most accurate time duration:

    When creating a split test, you must always remember that you need to give just enough time for your ad test to run so that it reaches your intended audience. But it shouldn’t carried out for such a long time that it becomes repetitive and a waste to your budget.

    The ideal time duration your ad test should run for lies between 4-14 days, after which you should have enough results to make your conclusions.

    5. Create a budget:

    Before you start creating ad tests, allocate a proper, well-thought out budget. Ad testing can easily get very costly if it’s not handled efficiently.

    Therefore, always plan ahead, and be prepared for your estimated budget to exceed as well once your ad tests start rolling.

    6. Stop the losing ads:

    As time goes by, you will be able to easily identify which of the ad tests are winning and which are losing. Once you have identified those, you should stop the ads which didn’t gather the success other ads did, as continuing them would just be a burden on your budget as you work to grow your business.

    Keep removing the ads which aren’t winning until you end up with the final ad which performed the best in you’re A/B testing, and use your newfound learnings to strategize your future marketing strategies.

    Wrapping It Up

    Knowing the proper way to use the Facebook A/B testing tool can offer a lot of benefits to your growth. However, remember to be patient when it comes to collecting proper data and learning from trial-and-error.
