More of the Best Website Marketing Tools To Increase Your Clicks

Larry Chase at WDFM recently published his "Top 10 Marketing Sites for 2006." (Somehow he overlooked WebMarketCentral, but he's probably saving that for the 2007 list.) Here are the best tools from his list plus a few featured here previously that belong in any "top" tools list.

SpyFu
Type in any search phrase, and SpyFu will show you:
- The top organic and paid search results
- The number of advertisers who have purchased that term
- Other terms also bought by these advertisers
- Clicks per day and cost per click

Keyword Cloud
A useful keyword density tool that provides a visual display of the most prominent keywords for any site, along with a keyword frequency and density table. Note that this tool works much better with IE than with FireFox.

Google AdWords: Keyword Tool
Enter a search phrase, and this Google tool will display related keywords along with advertiser competition and search volume; average cost per click and ad position by bid amount; and global search volume trends over time.

Check Rankings
A subscription-based service (free registration required) that provides daily reports of your site's ranking for keywords you choose across all the major search engines. A great tool for monitoring the results of your SEO efforts. For one-off or periodic checks, I still like the search engine rankings tool from Mike's Marketing Tools.

Finally, Backflip is still my favorite tool for organizing marketing research, and Free Essential Tools for Blogger Blogs from Quick Online Tips is a must-have list of tools for business blogging.

Digital Marketing for Law Firms, How Hard is it?

A lot of "verticals" or industries make sense for digital marketing and the whole process can be very easy and intuitive. For instance, if you are running a Search Engine Optimization company, it's very straightforward to content market:

1- Write blogs or articles about SEO
2- Try to answer questions people have about SEO
3- Optimize those blogs around what the questions are and what you are saying.



But what about an industry that is a lot more complicated and not very straight forward? What about marketing for lawyers?

ACE, one of Philadelphia's top Law Firm Marketing companies, just posted this extremely helpful blog about why SEO is important for Law Firms. It delves into exactly how to do the job for a complex industry like the law and its practitioners.

One of the key points in the entire article is: "If your customer journey does not have a use for search services, then you'll never see SEO campaign results."

We recommend reading the whole thing. …

Tip #3 to improve your digital marketing

Do Your Research You may have ideas for what is going to work best for your audience based on past experience with your ads, but taking the time to conduct thorough research and have data to support your actions is important. You may anticipate that your customers will behave a certain way, when in fact they go in a completely different direction. It’s essential to be prepared for this ahead of time and use the information you collect from research to planning your marketing strategy. Elliot Simmonds explains this concept below:

“ A lot of people use sponsored posts and other paid advertising, and it seems that many are happy to simply pay the money and watch the views and clicks roll in - even if some of those clicks are from individuals tangential to the product or service they're promoting. Most platforms allow you to specifically target your sponsored posts and ads, and my tip is to do so following a period (even if it's only a short period) of actual research. Your gut i…

Tip #2 to Improve your Digital Marketing

Spend Wisely Each platform used to market online provides you with a different value. You need to analyze which outlets you should invest more time and money into, and which ones are not as important. Some platforms that work well for one company, yield little to no results for another. You need to find the one that suits your business goals the best. Digital Marketing is all very specific to your brand, and you need to plan your budget accordingly. Determining what each platform is going to do for your specific advertising efforts should be the basis for the decisions you make with your campaigns, explains Hitesh Sahni, Marketing Consultant at Smemark:

“It’s imperative to understand the value each channel offers. Search advertising platforms, such as Google Adwords, work best when there is a clear demand for your product or service, and you want to target people who search for your product or service online. Search advertising is less effective for a startup that has created a new an…
