Don’t Limit A/B Testing in your Business Marketing Strategy
The efforts in a marketing strategy cannot be a laisse-faire approach (i.e. to set it up and let it run itself indefinitely); rather there is a need to constantly review and improve your efforts by looking at statistics and trends.
A/B testing has been a steadfast marketing strategy since the dawn of the internet age as a way to preserve efforts and determine best performance by creating two or more versions of marketing techniques. However, this type of testing has been limited in its approach: to email campaigns. In order to move forward and improve your digital marketing footprint in 2019, A/B testing can be implemented in the following areas:
- On your services website: headings, internal links, capture forms & request for services.
- Contextual advertising: specifically, demographics & location testing.
- The main body of text within email campaigns.
- Within PPC advertisements.

Make Your Brand a Tangible Marketing Asset
A start-up or well-established company should be viewed as so much more than a mere goods & service provider. While traditional advertising has always aimed to show what products or services are being provided, your 2019 marketing strategy should go beyond this parameter. Perhaps it’s an incomparable quality of excellence, a lifestyle change, an innovation cornerstone, or a dream of bettering a common cause. Whichever way your brand sticks out, ensure that potential partners and clients are fully aware of it using targeted brand marketing.
Ultimately, a robust brand makes all your marketing efforts a lot easier and more effective by setting you apart from your competitors in a jam-packed marketplace.
