With any online business, it is vital that you drive traffic to your site.  But you need to  make sure that you drive targeted traffic only to it.  This will help to increase the chances of you getting those all important sales as well as more business.

Through PPC you can select specific keywords to include in your Google Adwords so that they show up at the top of any Google search results.  Whereas when it comes to Facebook ads you are able to define who your target audience is based upon a variety of different demographic characteristics.

By running a campaign, which gives you say 1,000 targeted visits you can then measure what results are achieved.   Okay, it’s going to cost you to run this test, but if you are aiming for an online presence that is long term then the money spent could end up generating more revenue (sales) for you in the future.

There are plenty of businesses that don’t choose to test out their product first, simply because they believe what they have will sell.  But these websites are doomed to fail, or if they do work the sales they make won’t be all that great.

4.  Works Well With Other Types Of Digital Marketing Channels

One of the most effective ways for an online business to increase its conversion rate is through the of retargeting.  Retargeting (re-marketing) is a method where you create a campaign to target those who have already visited your site but didn’t choose to buy from you.   

To use this method you simply a piece of code that is provided by Google Adwords, Facebook or Twitter. This piece of code allows you to then identify through cookies those people that visited your site but didn’t actually purchase anything from you.   

Once you have this information you then have the opportunity to create a campaign that specifically targets these people.  When targeting them make sure that you offer some kind of incentive that causes them to revisit your site and make that all-important purchase.
