There are three basic ways that your intended target audience can use to find your content within the online environment.
The first is, where your intended target market audience will type your URL directly into the browser address box, because he / she knows your web address. This is usually due to some OFF LINE MARKETING TACTIC where you inform your intended target market audience of your web address, such as news paper adverting, flyers or billboards.
The second is by pure luck or serendipity, when your intended target market audience discovers a link to your content while browsing the internet.
The third way that your intended target market audience may discover your online content, is through the use of a search engine.
The second is just plain unacceptable from a business perspective, cos you have no control or management over the serendipity or luck of your intended Target market audience, and relying on this for your business success is just plain stupid.
The third option, using a search engine, is the most cost effective, but takes quite a bit of effort on your part. Understanding the basics of search engine optimization is thus an essential component of current management skill sets. Taking a FUFISM based marketing approach will ensure better marketing success, as this marketing philosophy has a core focus on SEO and related marketing issues.
FUFISM or Functional User Friendly Integrated Social Media is just plain old school marketing, extended into the internet. Knowing your customers needs, and supplying a solution, but within the online environment, is one of the cornerstones of the FUFISM MARKETING PHILOSOPHY.
Using the social media as an online supplementary marketing tool for your web site or blog is not a difficult thing to do, however doing this with high precision, and targeting specific keywords and related semantics, starts to get a bit complex in nature, so you do need yo have s clear well documented plan of action
Failure to document your plan makes it difficult to measure success or failure of your marketing. A written plan also makes it easier to enlist the help of others, as your aims, objectives and intentions will be easily understood, and less likely to be misinterpreted. Having a written plan also makes it easier to integrate the three seperate components of the SEO space.
IPSEO or in page search engine optimization is all the technical stuff that is included in the HTML of your page, and this gives search engines the basic Context and SEMANTICS of your online content.
OPSEO or off page search engine optimization is all the supplemental marketing, mostly within the SOCIAL MEDIA ENVIRONMENT, and link building strategies.
OLSEO or off line search engine marketing is all your standard old school marketing within the off line environment, such as newspapers, magazines, radio, flyers and bill boards, where you introduce your event, product or service specific keywords and related semantics to your intended target market audience.
This is why keyword research, and related topic selection is so important, coz you need to inform your copy writer and other technical SEO team members which words and related semantics they need to focus on. Here we are talking about things like alt tags for images, anchor text in links, schema markup and other tactics.
Your off line marketing needs to focus on this same set of keywords, topics and related semantics, to ensure that your intended Target market audience uses this same set of criteria when formulating their online search query
IPSEO or in page search engine optimization includes all the technical stuff that is included in the HTML of your page, and this gives search engines the basic Context and SEMANTICS of your online content.
OPSEO or off page but still online search engine optimization is all the supplemental marketing, mostly within your SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING , and link building strategies, such as blog posts or online adds.
OLSEO or off line search engine marketing is all your old fashioned physiological marketing tactics to get your intended target market audience to use specific words (your keywords) in their search queries
SEO has evolved from a only links and link building strategy way back in the late 1990's to a very complex state of affairs where we now need to understand our target market audience and their approach to using online search to surface our content.
Creating quality content on its own is no longer an option, we now need to do an awful lot more, and ensuring that your Target market audience is exposed to your selected key words within the off line environment is now an essential part of your SEO strategies. How else can you ensure that your intended Target market audience types your selected keywords into the search box of a search engine?
