3 Common Digital Marketing Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

In today's digital age, marketing is all about harnessing the power of the internet to reach a wider audience. However, the online landscape is constantly evolving, and keeping up with these changes can be overwhelming, especially for business owners. Unfortunately, many businesses make common mistakes that hurt their digital marketing campaigns. In this post, we'll discuss 3 of the most common digital marketing mistakes and provide tips on how to avoid them.

1. Neglecting SEO:

Search engine optimization (SEO) is crucial for improving your website's visibility on search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo. Unfortunately, many businesses overlook SEO, which can negatively impact their website's search rankings. To avoid this mistake, businesses should focus on using relevant keywords and phrases that their target audience is searching for. They should also ensure that their website is optimized for mobile devices, as Google now uses mobile-first indexing to rank websites.

2. Being Inconsistent:

Digital marketing requires consistency to achieve results. Posting great content once in a while isn't enough to attract and retain customers. Social media, email marketing, and other digital marketing channels require regular updates to maintain engagement. To avoid this mistake, businesses should create a content calendar to plan and execute their marketing efforts. They should also ensure that their brand's voice and identity are consistent across all digital channels to maintain a strong brand presence.

3. Not Tracking Analytics:

Analytics provide insights into the effectiveness of your digital marketing campaigns. Without tracking analytics, businesses can't be sure if their marketing efforts are paying off. They may be wasting money on ineffective campaigns or missing opportunities to improve their efforts. To avoid this mistake, businesses should set up goals in Google Analytics to track their website's performance. They should also track the performance of their social media campaigns to see what's working and what's not.

In conclusion...

Digital marketing mistakes can be costly for businesses, but they can be avoided with a little planning and effort. By focusing on SEO, consistency, and analytics, businesses can achieve better results from their digital marketing campaigns. Remember, digital marketing is not a one-time effort, but a constant process that requires constant adjustments and improvements. By avoiding these common mistakes and staying up to date with the latest digital marketing trends, businesses can achieve success online.

A Note From the Author

As a business owner, brand strategist, and graphic designer I run in to questions and ideas every day.

As the owner of Norris Design, I started out wanting to solely be a designer, but education changed the way I thought, the way I viewed business and the way I viewed my role in helping other's businesses.  

Graphic design will always be my original love, but as I grew in knowledge, I realized the small view of design for the sake of something beautiful was such a disservice to businesses.

Businesses needed much more than just graphic design.  They needed to see the bigger picture of their businesses from the perspective of a designer.  Once I realized that branding had a huge role in large businesses that see amazing success but very few small businesses even think about branding or brand strategy, I realized that if I could offer a brand strategy view as a consultant rather than just an order taker graphic designer, I could actually move the needle in their businesses.

This is the beginning of where I started to fall in love with business, marketing, branding, brand strategy, consulting and brand building. 

It all started with education after college.

I obsessively read articles, listened to podcasts, watched videos, read books, and took classes.  This was to fulfill this desire to be more involved in the businesses side of design rather than just design alone.

So, this is why I wright. I appreciate other people's perspective and I hope that one day, mine can help someone else.
