ONLINE ADVERTISING

Online advertising with Google AdWords is one of the most effective lead generation platforms, giving business high accuracy in reaching potential customers with highly targeted advertisements aligned to users' search intent, interests, browser history and so on.

Google AdWords is Google's paid online advertising platform, and consists of 2 advertising networks: the Google Display Network and the Google Search Network, each with its own set of advertising channels. Let's take a closer look:

  • PPC (Per-Per-Click) advertising: PPC ads are seen on the Search Network (here, the search engine results page or SERP) - those text ads commonly appearing at the top (and sometimes side and bottom) of the organic results when you search for products or services on Google.

    These ads enjoy good click volume, and so can be an important source of targeted online traffic. If your company doesn't have an SEO strategy getting your company listed in the first few results of a Google search, then PPC advertising is critical in helping your landing pages get instant, high-quality traffic. The PPC advertising model allows you to 'bid' on keywords relevant to your business on a cost-per-click basis, giving companies wide flexibility both in optimising the kind of traffic they can get to their landing page, and in how your advertising spend is used.

  • Display advertising: Display advertising refers to the online advertising space found across third party websites. Much of this space is 'sold' to Google - which in turn sells and manages this space to companies via the Google Display Network (in a similar bidding to the PPC model described above) - while many sites also sell advertising space privately. From design to media buying and budget and campaign management, CubicICE provides the full spectrum of display advertising services, including:

    Affinity marketing: Target potential customers based on user information including search history, social activity, search query and content consumption patterns, among other signals. Targeting to more defined user profiles allows B2B companies to speak more directly to the needs and demands of their potential buyers.

    Retargeting / remarketing: Business buyers don't usually convert on their first visit to your website. So how do you keep a potential buyer referring back to your site across the buy cycle? One of the most effective ways of lead nurturing that will keep your brand top-of-mind through the buy cycle is through retargeting, where you can strategically re-target non-converting visitors to your site.

    Online banner advertising: This form of display advertising loosely refers to those websites selling advertising space independently of the Google Display Network. Advertising your brand on specialised websites attracting already targeted traffic is a valuable way of increasing your brand awareness and lead generation capabilities.

  • Paid social advertising: Social media advertising can be powerful in amplifying broader digital marketing strategies, and offers companies a wide degree of control in scale and high-level targeting. Social media advertising enhances reach to newer audiences. At CubicICE, we understand how social media fits into the larger online world of business and technical professionals, so we only invest in the most productive social media activities for maximum ROI.

SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION (SEO)

Search engines are the #1 channel used by business buyers in researching prospective products and services, used by over 90% of buyers across the buy cycle. Getting your website listed among the first few listings of the search results is one of the most lucrative lead generation avenues for businesses across the board.

Companies at the top of the pile for a particular Google search will receive over 60% of that traffic. If you do the math, that means approximately 54% of your total potential customers will find products and services you offer through the top-listed web results in search engines. Once your business is listed here, you're in the pound seat to start generating leads from your website!

Getting there - what we call 'increasing your website visibility' - requires a website delivering relevant content that's optimised for search engines: search engine optimisation (SEO). There are supposedly over 250 basic website factors that need to be 'optimised' within the field of SEO. Optimising the crawlability of your website for search engine 'spiders'; a content marketing strategy aligned to user intent; intuitive UX and usability; internal and external linking strategies; social signals; are some of the broader activities of SEO marketing.

At CubicICE, we think of the Internet as a strategic business tool that can improve business activities, reduce operational costs and improve profitability. As a Google Partner and SEO-Certified Professional, we deliver turnkey SEO services to some of Africa's largest brands, from website development, to content optimisation and technical maintenance.
