Digital Marketing: Future Option for Companies and Students

He Digital Marketing está en constante evolución y la diferencia entre el digital y el Marketing Tradicional cada vez se acentúa más. En estos momentos, es un error disponer de un departamento de Marketing (tradicional) y por separado, disponer de un departamento de Marketing Digital. Los profesionales del marketing de hoy en día, deben dominar tanto unas técnicas como las otras. Olvidarse del Marketing Digital o pensar que no está hecho para nuestra empresa, es un hándicap que nos llevará a no obtener los resultados esperados y solo es una excusa para no tener que reconocer que no estamos preparados.

Las características de los distintos canales en los que se puede publicitar, el modo de segmentar a la audiencia y la importancia que se da al consumidor, marcan la diferencia entre las estrategias de cada uno. Si bien ambos tipos de marketing pueden tener resultados exitosos, cada vez es más notorio que para mantener la competitividad, las empresas deben apostar por el Marketing Digital.

Esta rama de la mercadotecnia, además, presenta una de las opciones de mayor tasa de empleabilidad para quienes se especializan en este sector. El marketing digital es la opción de futuro para empresas y recién licenciados por igual.

Marketing Digital vs. Marketing Tradicional

Tanto las estrategias del Marketing Digital como las del Marketing Tradicional son capaces de obtener buenos resultados para un negocio. Sin embargo, la diferencia entre todo lo que puede hacer el Marketing Digital por una empresa cada vez es más notoria.

Esto se debe a que:

  • No se necesitan grandes presupuestos para comunicar en Internet. Además, este tipo de comunicación es más accesible para los usuarios y menos invasiva que los métodos tradicionales.
  • Los anuncios en Internet pueden permanecer allí mucho más tiempo. Además, es posible modificarlos sin que esto suponga gastos adicionales.
  • En la mayor parte de herramientas de comunicación online se puede calcular el ROI (Return On Investment) de las campañas. Es decir, por cada euro invertido, puedes saber cuánto has factura y qué margen te ha dejado.

Advantages of Digital Marketing for a company

Las empresas que cuentan con presencia en Internet y desarrollan estrategias de marketing que se basan en este canal tienen numerosos beneficios frente a las que no lo hacen.

Las principales ventajas del marketing digital para una empresa son las siguientes:

  • It allows to measure the impact of each action and modify them as appropriate. Optimizar las comunicaciones para obtener mejores resultados es algo impensable en el mundo offline. Esto posibilita una mejor toma de decisiones empresariales y dedicar los presupuestos a aquellas formas de comunicación que mejor rendimiento ofrecen.
  • Los anuncios por Internet son flexibles y dinámicos. Esto quiere decir que puedes modificarlos hasta encontrar los que mejores resultados ofrezcan. Existen más de 15 tipos diferentes de campaña que puedes ir optimizando hasta encontrar un sistema positivo de publicidad (un sistema positivo se obtiene cuando por cada euro invertido, consigues más de un euro en beneficio neto).
  • Online communication allows more precise segmentation. Internet ofrece herramientas que permiten segmentar a la audiencia que realmente está interesada en tus productos o servicios. Ya no se trata de una segmentación por género o edad, sino por intereses y preferencias.
  • Aumenta el reconocimiento de la marca. El marketing digital tiene numerosas estrategias que acercan a la empresa a sus clientes y le permiten generar una relación de confianza mutua.

Study digital marketing

Estudiar un master online es una inmejorable opción para introducirse en el mundo del marketing digital. Los perfiles profesionales que se dedican a esta rama del marketing son cada vez más demandados. Además, las ventajas que el marketing digital le ofrece a una empresa hacen que, a futuro, sea una opción de carrera muy provechosa. Tener estudios en marketing digital ofrece una alternativa con alta empleabilidad que los estudiantes o los recién licenciados deben tener en cuenta al momento de elegir su profesión.

Si me sigues en Linkedin habrás visto que este mes tenemos abiertas 3 posiciones relacionadas con el Marketing Digital que provienen de nuestros clientes. Creeme cuando afirmo que es realmente complicado encontrar a los candidatos y candidatas ideales para estos puestos. La mayor parte de nuestros alumnos encuentran trabajo de inmediato o deciden crear su propia agencia.

Si tienes interés en formarte más en Marketing Digital y deseas obtener un título universitario, estos son los tres Másters en Marketing Digital de los que puedo darte buenas referencias:

  1. Master in Digital Marketing from the University of Vic - Central University of Catalonia. Este máster lo creamos hace 6 años, es 100% online y está actualizado.

  3. Máster en Marketing Digital de la Universidad Complutense. Este máster es online, también totalmente actualizado y empieza en octubre. La empleabilidad de los alumnos de este máster es prácticamente del 100%.

Cultural Marketing - Digital Marketing for Cultural companies in 2020

Design a good strategy Digital Marketing It is important for all kinds of companies, but especially for cultural given the peculiarity of its diverse publics and the scarce resources with which they must obtain good results.

The secret of the Marketing Cultural is segmentation. The key to success is understanding that you are a sniper attacking certain segments. And the attack must be done with specific content that you know will have value for that segment. It is important that you understand what "will have value for that segment" ... this is the key ... you must know your audiences.

It is also important to have clearly in Digital Marketing There are 4 growth strategies that you can put into practice, and that can be perfectly applied to Cultural Sector. These are:

Market penetration strategy: You are looking for more audiences like the current segments you already have. Enter Google Analytics -> Acquisition -> Search Console -> Landing pages -> click on the most searched. Improve the SEO of these pages and you will have more traffic like the current one.

Product Development Strategy: Get your current clients to hire more services. Create a funnel with various services / products that have more and more value and that the same customer, start with the wide part of the funnel and as he gets to know you, he hires more services of greater value to him and higher turnover.

Market development strategy: You need to attack segments that you don't have now. Make a list of the market segments of your industry and select some of those that are not your clients. Analyze why they are not, adapt one of your products or services to fit that segment and publicize the service (with SEO and advertising).

Diversification Strategy: Attack new segments with new products. This is the riskiest strategy because there are two variables that can fail you ... it is the last one that you should carry out. Select a segment you don't have and create a specific product for that segment. Include it on the web and do SEO and advertising to attract that new segment.

Again, the important thing for the Marketing Cultural is that you don't mix segments. Remember that you are a sniper ... the temptation will be great ... you will think "since I do it for this segment, I also include the rest" ... no! It will not work. This is the key to Digital Marketing for Business Cultural. Believe me, I have designed strategies for many.

If your company is in Catalonia, you should know that the SDE (Business Development Service of the Department of Culture) has opened, just two weeks ago, the aid to create Marketing plans Cultural Enterprise. You will find the information here: Marketing consulting for Cultural Enterprises

How to price a product or service?

I often find that my digital marketing students overlook that pricing It is one of the marketing variables that most influences sales of a product, and are unable to properly fix the price of a service or a product. Let's see How to price a product or service?

This article aims to help establish the correct price of any product or service.

  1. Pricing by cost + margin. That is, calculate what it costs to provide a service or what it cost to create a product and add the margin necessary to achieve the expected return. This is the only way to fix the prices my students occurs, and not bad! But it can not be the only one. We must weigh other variables.
  2. Pricing as competition. The prices of our competitors should be considered as a reference and we must fix our depending on whether we want to position ourselves above, or below. This variable depends not only on the profitability of the project but also has a strong effect on our brand image.
  3. Pricing depending on how much demand endures. This form of pricing always amazes students and instead is one of the most commonly used, especially for services. It is to set a price based on the parameters 1 and 2, and plunge up regularly to see if orders keep coming. By the time we notice that slow, we have probably reached the "fair" price received by our customers.
  4. Pricing according to the life cycle of a product. A product or service should not have the same price when it is born and we want people to know that in full operation, or when it is uncatalogs and publish it in our "bargain list".

We should consider these four variables every time you set a price.

There is a fifth variable which is a bit dangerous but it may make sense in certain cases:

  • Pricing according to the distribution channel. That is, for some customers have a price and another price for others, depending on the distribution channel for arriving and type of customer. This fifth variable is useful when you are already well established and well handle a pricing strategy. I do not recommend to start a business or making a business plan ... better focus on the previous 4.

Well, I hope this information has been helpful and that from now know how to price a product or a service, and when you have to make business plans, you calculate either prices or at least make a little more rigor.

We're going talking

A hug.

Digital Marketing Course via Twitter (free)

Today I started the first of my "3 days of tranquility"(I have left children and husband at home, and I've gone [my cat] to the house we have on the beach). I needed a few days of calm no meetings, no classes or lectures, to write things that have been pending for a long time.

One of these things is a course Marketing Digital hecho a base de twits (Ie on Twitter). This morning I put into it and I have a good written part. I have also begun to schedule publication.

The publication will be daily and will start tomorrow at 10am. A phrase a day. Weekends and Easter the twits will stand.

I'll start with the basics of online marketing, then with benchmarking, then with the techniques to attract visitors to a website, then the conversion and finally with user loyalty. As yet I have not finished writing it I do not know when the course ends. I have stayed at the end of SEM and I'm on May 15 :-)

The sentences begin with the word "Council" (*) and every day will appear tips that will improve digital marketing who follow them.

The tool I used to program the twits and get it published when I want it Future Tweets. There I have been including the sentences of 140 characters (if you're tuitero / a already know how difficult it is to say something in 140 characters), and I indicated day and time you wish to be published in my account. The tests I've done during the day worked well.

Future Tweets is free indeed.

If you have not yet registered with Twitter, now you have an excuse to do so. My account is: http://www.twitter.com/montsepenarroya ... if you want to follow :-P

We talk to each other.

A hug.

* Later note: to facilitate the collection of twits, I changed the word "Council" by #CursoM (so I keep the same number of characters, but I use a single hashtag to identify the entire course). M is for Montse, or Marketing, or Mañana_lo_leeré ... ;-)
