Dynamic Display Advertising Solutions

Have you ever started noticing a certain type of car after somebody talks about it or you have a significant amount of exposure to it? For example, your friend gets a new Mitsubishi Lancer and in the following weeks, you’d swear that every other car you see is a Lancer. You see Lancers in every style, color and custom body-type they come in. Just wait, you’ll probably notice a Mitsubishi Lancer out on the road today.

This phenomenon is called top-of-mind awareness and it’s exactly why display advertising works so well. Our display solutions give your business the chance to remain top-of-mind for potential customers who might be interested in your product or service, or have visited your site but not made a purchase. Businesses often assume that once a potential customer visits their site and decides not to buy that they’re a lost cause. Never assume!

Hooking The Intelligent Customer

Consumers are smarter than they’ve ever been and spend more time looking for information. It’s very likely that potential customers visiting your site for the first time aren’t yet ready to make a purchase. If they leave your site and you aren’t doing anything to get them back, they may not come back. But display advertising has the ability to keep your products or services top-of-mind for the potential customer and even nudge them back to your site.

WSI’s display solutions work by placing your ads in front of surfers who are looking for something similar to your products and services, or have previously visited your website (meaning they will see your banner ads when they are on other websites). In some cases, people will click-through the banner ad. Others may return to your site sometime later simply because you’re stuck in their heads. At the very least, it’s better to be proactive and turn people your business had written-off into new customers.

How much time and/or money should a small business spend?

Professional marketing companies will recommend 7% to 8% of your revenue. Others will suggest that small businesses spend 7-20 hours a week. Larger companies more.
The truth is there is no perfect formula for how much time or dollars you should spend. There are so many variables that need to be considered to determine the amount of investment and where to spend it that most businesses go about marketing as if it were a dart game. They throw darts hoping to hit the bulls eye.

The problem is that without some solid marketing information it’s like throwing darts from 30 feet away. If you can gather up lots of information so you understand your customers better, your competition better and your marketing opportunities better you can move the target much closer. Once your darts are hitting the dart board you can start to zero in on the bulls eye.

Marketing Stress

There are three stresses that make up the majority of marketing stress for small to mid sized businesses.

  • Lack of time to manage the marketing
  • Lack of funds to higher a professional to manage the marketing
  • The difficulty in finding and retaining someone to manage marketing with the needed skills for your business

If you started a business with the knowledge that you would be responsible for marketing the business you should have time budgeted for those tasks and have some background that made you feel confident you could manage your the marketing for your company. If you started your business so you could work less or to run the business, you probably don’t have the time or the knowledge to do the marketing yourself. In fact trying to do the marketing when you are ill trained to do so can quickly take up all your time and probably not give you the best results.

The solution- Higher a professional

How to know if you have the right person for you marketing

Digital marketing is changing so rapidly that a small marketing office should probably only specialize in one part of digital marketing in order to master it. If you want to stick to one office to manage all of your digital marketing needs be sure the office has a lot of resources. If you have developed a marketing plan you should see if the company has qualified resources in each digital marketing area that will be needed.

Digital Marketing Fields Include:

First Step – Research and Consultation

The money will be well spent as it can save you countless dollars in future marketing.
