1) Deal with Your website first. First thing first, if you want to get rid of your old and effective digital marketing strategy, it is very vital you check out your website first for any sort of inconvenience that needs to be tackled.
For instance, as of now, any website that is not designed in such a way and manner that is easy to navigate through the use of mobile device is outdated and as such, has become ineffective. So, if your website is not designed to be mobile-friendly, then you are somehow behind.

2) Ensure it has the basics. There is more to designing and making your business website mobile-friendly, it requires and at the same time very necessary for it to be furnished with some basics that are of utmost important to your business growth at large.
Essence, what is the essence of a business website without much and basic information about the company brand and product? So, make sure your target audience can get a hold of any vital information about you, your business and product.
Let your visitors have access to any information you might consider to be vital, information like the business address, business working hour, phone number, emergency services, workers ratio and skills to mention but few should be visible on your website.
You can however consider putting such basic and vital information at the right segment of your site or better still, in the footer so that it will be very easy to spot on every page. While this digital marketing tip may seems and look pretty basic, there are many business owners out there with the business website without those basics info, not even about us page. This is so because they are always busy running business here and there, so they end up forgetting to do the necessary.
3) Concentrate on your local audience. It is no more a news that the growth of any business or establishment lies in the hands of the target audience or consumers. So, it doesn’t need announcement that a full focus and concentration needs to be placed in that regard. But for the purpose of digital marketing strategy overhaul, your local audience most be given a full and total attention before others.
Now, how do you do this?
It is very simple!
If you are running a business that concentrate on local customers, be sure to gain a firm footing on search directories on the online listings. This includes major places like Yahoo, Google My Business, Bing, Manta, Yelp and many more. The good news here is that these aforementioned places are free for starters to enroll in.
Most importantly, you have a responsibility to ensure that no business brand is hiding under your shadow or pretending to be you and make sure that all your visible information online are the same and consistent.
4) See to Your Social Media Usage Mode. In the course of overhauling your old and ineffective digital marketing tactic, seeing “social media usage mode” pop up on the screen may be a bit doozy, but the fact is that we understand and used to using the social media platforms in different ways and different manners.
Of course, there are as many social media platforms as business brands but your ability to spot which one suit, fit and housed most of your target audience is the real deal. If your business products focus on women things, it’ll be a great mistake for you to give Facebook priority over Pinterest. Why? Because 75% of Pinterest users are female.
As a matter of fact, there are some business brand and social media influencer that end up committing what I’ll call social media error because they see the amazing platforms as the perfect place for them to blast their followers and seasonal audience with promotions, sales, and deals.
Albeit at your own end, you may think you are being generous or helpful but the truth is that you may end up sending your potential customers away because of such action. Why? Because they expect something informational and genuine about your new product.
So, what will happen should reverse be the case?
They will eventually tune out on your you or even exist your page, and doing such is no fun at all. But if you concentrate on “social” end of your business brand, and keep providing valuable, engaging and fun-filled content to your prospective followers, you are likely to witness more positive responses that will help your business growth in the future than just leveraging them with promo.
End Note Keeping up business with the latest digital marketing tactics or trends is likely going to add much more impact on your business than just keeping hold of the old and ineffective ones. Beware!
