It’s important to remember that online shoppers are humans, and to treat them as such. The examples below show two versions of the same ad for a fake cyber security business. While version A does provide potential customers with information about the company and the services it offers, it fails to address them as people or speak to the challenges or pain points they might be experiencing.
For many of you reading this post, you may wonder why these other strategies exist at all. Shouldn’t people only be paying for clicks that directly impact their ability to generate revenue and ultimately profit? I struggled with this concept early in my career, but ultimately came to the conclusion that not every single marketing activity can be direct response.
Keyword Competition tools can make things much easier on your keyword strategy. Some tools include the Adwords Keyword Planner  (you can tailor this for B2B) and MozBar. Google Adwords help you discover and compare new keywords. MozBar helps you check keyword competition against other B2B business sites. Some tools must be purchased, such as Long Tail Pro. This tool identifies profitable long tail keywords focused on your content.
The other option is to follow up with page visitors outside of AdWords. To do this, you’ll want to create an opt-in page (like the templates above) that offers visitors something of value in exchange for their email address or other contact information. Our dishwasher vendor could offer a free guide on the best way to prolong the life of your dishwasher.
This can mean simply using pictures from the surrounding area or structuring the landing page around a theme that is relevant. A great example of this is Grubhub. If you access their site from Boston, you get completely different suggestions and images than you do if you access it from San Francisco. Not only does this engage the user on a personal level, it also draws them in to the page, keeping them clicking for longer.
There are lots of questions, as yet unanswered. For example, when considering anonymity, is it okay if trackers gather data, but aren’t able to discern exactly who a user is? There are questions of security and privacy, and information one company might share with another. There are questions of choice: should customers always have to opt-in, or can opt-outs work, too? There are questions about who can and can’t be trusted with these services: your company, for example, versus, say, the U.S. government.
Successful online advertising requires ongoing work and optimisation to improve performance and results. Maximising output and reducing input is critical. You must clearly outline the business objectives, goals, and audiences for each campaign. This chapter outlines our PPC model which considers objectives, goals, audience, and targeting to ensure your PPC is based on a solid strategy with clear measures in place to analyse and improve as you go.
There are some general negative keywords that should be added to almost any campaign, such as “free”, “jobs” “training”, as people searching for these terms are not likely to be looking to buy your product. Keywords like “review” and “opinions” can also be useful, as they will reduce the number of window shoppers who aren’t necessarily looking to buy now. But you’ll also want to research negative keywords specific to your business or audience. For example, if you are an optometrist, you’ll want to use words like “wine”, as you aren’t looking for customers in search of “wine glasses.
Die SWOT-Analyse ist eines der wichtigsten Tools in der Unternehmensanalyse. Aber auch bei der Wettbewerbsanalyse sammeln Sie mit einer SWOT-Analyse wichtige Erkenntnisse. Im Gegensatz zur Unternehmensanalyse, in der Sie Ihre eigenen Stärken und Schwächen bewerten, schauen Sie bei der Wettbewerbsanalyse die der anderen genauer an. Die SWOT-Analyse fußt auf vier wichtigen Kriterien: Strenghts (Stärken) und Weaknesses (Schwächen) + Opportunities (Chancen) und Threats (Risiken). Bei der SWOT-Analyse stellen Sie die individuellen Stärken und Schwächen Ihres Gegners den externen Chancen und Risiken gegenüber, denen er ausgesetzt ist. Fragen Sie also bei der SWOT-Analyse:

As I consult and train people on Internet marketing, I typically ask whether keyword research is a strategic function or a tactical one. Often people think it’s tactical because of the tedious nature of the work. I submit it is not only strategic but also foundational to all marketing channels you will use. If you take the time up front to outline a killer keyword strategy, you will find your campaigns will be higher performing and more successful. In this column, I will outline seven tips for developing a killer keyword strategy you can use to take your campaigns to a higher level.

If you’re an ecommerce business, then you need to be running Google Shopping Campaigns. Consumers use Google’s search engine on a daily basis to find all kinds of products that they need (including yours), and running Google Shopping campaigns can help you connect with them. These campaigns pull product information, such as the product image, price, and merchant name, from your company’s Merchant Center data feed and conveniently display them to the viewer. Because it pulls this data each time a user makes a search inquiry, you can be assured that your product ads are always up to date and accurate (so long as you keep your data feed that way), keeping your potential customer from feeling confused or frustrated.
For your Amazon PPC campaigns you should calculate total ad spend by attributed sales, to find out how much you are spending on advertising, on average, to gain one sale. As you said, you need to ensure that you understand what your maximum ACoS can be before you break even and then start losing money per sale, and optimize your campaigns accordingly. This will vary from product to product.
You can set a bid adjustment based on a user’s previous behavior on your site, so if they’ve bought one item, you could increase your bids in your other campaign to promote related accessories or products that they are most likely to be interested when they search on Google. This can also work even if they haven’t made a purchase, but simply browsed for your products.

For example, a coffee shop can set a 1-mile perimeter around its store and reach any user within that radius. Or, it could set a 3-mile perimeter around a nearby office complex to reach users that may be looking for somewhere to grab coffee before going into work. You can also try geo-conquesting, which targets customers around a competitor’s location.
Wichtig ist, dass du dich nicht verzettelst. Es geht nicht darum, eine vollumfängliche Wettbewerbs- und Konkurrenzanalyse vorzulegen, die alle Kennzahlen und Strategien, Stärken und Schwächen aller deiner Konkurrenten enthält. Es geht darum, eine gute Grundlage für die Positionierung deines Unternehmens zu schaffen: Mit welchem Angebot, welchen Preisen, und welchem Marketing willst du deine Kunden gewinnen?
2. Define how will you measure success. This is probably one of the most important questions to answer before you begin any campaign. As a consultant, this is one of the first questions I ask a potential client. The answer as you might expect is page one ranking. If your objective is branding only, then this is fine, however, if like most organizations yours is a conversion strategy, then I would caution you to not be so short-sighted. Your objective should be how many conversions you want to achieve for each keyword. Top ranking will help you with visibility, which is a good thing, but if you bring in traffic from that keyword and those visitors do not engage and convert, then why bother? You must set your sights on keywords that convert.
They attribute this to the metric being harder to game, since YouTube is more able to track where each video is shared. While YouTube hasn’t confirmed that social shares play a factor in search engine rankings, the strong correlation combined with YouTube reporting on social media shares in their own analytics suggests that the more social shares your video gets, the better for your video SEO.
Bestimmung der Fähigkeiten des Konkurrenten: Unter diesem Punkt fasst Grant die Ressourcen und die Aktionsmöglichkeiten eines Konkurrenten zusammen. So, wie ein Formel-1-Rennwagen nur mit den Fähigkeiten eines Fahrers zu einem Sieg kommen kann, so kann auch ein Unternehmen nur aus der sinnvollen Kombination von materiellen und menschlichen Ressourcen erfolgreich sein. Die Kenntnis dieser Fähigkeiten eines Konkurrenten lässt direkt auf seine Fähigkeit schließen, eine bestimmte Aktion auszuführen.

Sie möchten eine Wettbewerbsanalyse starten und scheitern schon bei der Begriffsrecherche im Netz? Konkurrenzanalyse, Marktanalyse, Wettbewerbsanalyse, Branchenanalyse … Ist das nicht alles sehr ähnlich? In der Tat ist das ein weites Feld, auf dem sich unzählige Expertenmeinungen tummeln. Die gute Nachricht ist aber: Es gibt ihn, den berühmten Königsweg. Nämlich Ihren …


Once you have a short list of keywords, create separate pieces of valuable, high-quality content, each optimized for an individual term on the list. Through the process outlined above, you aligned keywords with searcher intent. You ostensibly know what searchers commonly put into search engines to find content related to your business goals. Now, your content should actually meet those searchers’ needs. In fact, it should be your goal to create the best, most actionable content to answer a specific question a target user might have as possible.
9. 9 @peakaceag pa.ag Wenn Google den Traffic selbst behält… Thanks to Aaron Chronister - Director, Audience Development @ CBS Interactive CBS rankte den ganzen Tag über auf Platz #1 und #2 für News und Organic. Ab 14:00 EST übernahm Google die Suchergebnisse mit ihrem eigenen Wahlergebnisblock. Der Traffic nahm ab da stündlich um einige Millionen Besucher ab. Der 2. Ausschlag zeigt den Zeitpunkt an, ab dem die offiziellen Ergebnisse eintrafen. Die Zahl der Suchanfragen stieg wieder an, aber nicht so stark, dass wir die früheren Ergebnisse (#1 und #2) erreichen konnten.
Beschränke dich auf fünf bis acht deiner engsten Konkurrenten und auf ebenso viele Merkmale. Wenn du Branchen- oder Marktberichte liest, dann wähle dir die zwei aus, die dir besonders interessant erscheinen, und ignoriere den Rest. Dein Ziel ist es nicht, alles über deinen Zielmarkt zu erfahren, sondern zu erkennen, wie die Wettbewerbssituation beschaffen ist, welche Chancen und Risiken sich für dich ergeben und mit welcher Vorgehensweise du dich am besten behaupten kannst.
Diese Informationen können Sie im Marketing, im Produktmanagement, in der Produktentwicklung und im Vertrieb gewinnbringend nutzen. Das setzt voraus, dass Sie die Informationen mit den Fachbereichen analysieren und geeignete strategische, taktische und operative Maßnahmen ergreifen: von der richtigen Positionierung im Marktportfolio bis hin zu den stichhaltigen Argumenten im Verkaufsgespräch. Nutzen Sie dafür Vorlagen wie Wettbewerber im Markt und ihre Stellung im Marktportfolio.
