Online Marketing, sometimes called Content Marketing, is not a new concept. In a nutshell it’s publishing in new media. In fact, you could say that for as long as man has been able to commit his thoughts to stone, blackboard or paper he has looked for ways to get them noticed. Of course nowadays things are a little more sophisticated but with the tools available and a little imagination you can have your content engage targeted audiences globally. Here we write about Inbound Marketing, Content Marketing, SEO and smart tactics that together set you ahead of the competition in your overall Online Marketing efforts.
Most people know about A/B testing… but what about A/B/C testing?
With any website and the larger sales funnel, the wise digital marketer is always testing for better conversion results. Does this have to be a major, time-consuming task? No. Do you have to push yourself? Yes.
Today we’ll look at A/B/C testing for a headline and consider both why we want to create such a test and how it compares to other forms of testing.
Let’s look at one we have running right now. We have written three landing page headlines and our testing hypothesis is that only one will compel more visitors to convert to leads. Luckily this is easy to do — no external testing provider required — using our preferred WordPress theme – Divi. Divi comes with built-in A/B (and C and D, etc.) testing. Here’s how it looks in the admin area: (more…)

How can you be confident in your A/B CRO testing results?
How can you be confident in your A/B test results? When choosing an A/B test winner, there will always be a certain amount of risk. What risk? Well, statistically speaking, testing is not a binary proposition with one version a clear loser and one a clear winner.
Recently, I was preparing a lecture for my online course on “CRO Power” (recall that CRO stands for Conversion Rate Optimization), where we have been testing two versions of a pop-up to subscribe to our newsletter in return for an eBook on R.A.C.E. marketing strategy and tactics. Here are the two versions and you can see which one “won”:
Our A/B test results for these two pop-up versions showed that the A version (left) got better results. How significant is that?
Our dental office marketing strategy focuses on using conversion rate optimization and best SEO practices to help build a foundation of trust to attract new patients.
Trust. It’s the key principle when it comes to choosing a dental office. Patients are looking for a team of dental professionals they can trust. They need to trust them to take care of their teeth safely while working under sedation. Trust them with their smile. Trust them to enter their personal space. In reality, the entire dental experience is quite intimate. Therefore, the relationships between patients and their dental professionals are more personal than those with other business service providers, such as mechanics for example. As dental marketing professionals, our job is to help dentists and their offices create this trust with the public by putting their greatest benefits and guarantees at the forefront of our marketing efforts.
At Webdirexion, we have a long history of working with clients in the healthcare industry. As such, it was a natural acquisition when we began digital marketing work with dental clients in 2016. I personally began working intensively with dental clients more than a year ago, so I was eager to work with both Padden Dental and Cascade Dental with Webdirexion.
As a team, we decided it’s time we provide an update on some dental clinic marketing work we have been up to this last year. In this article, we will review some of the things we’ve learned with an eye on lessons that could apply to other businesses as well. (more…)
Design, UI, and Strategy components all combine to play a symphony pleasing to website visitors.
Looking back at a run of recent projects (see examples below), we can see modern responsive design, content strategy, and conversion rate optimization (CRO) is paying off. Like a concert master, the “music” of each design and strategy component are directed to play the right “tune” to attract and engage your prospects. We review some recent Webdirexion WordPress Content Strategy projects to look at the symphony of choices involved in developing compelling websites. (more…)
Content strategy is a critical component to the success of your online marketing strategy. This blog post is the first in a series of articles where we will discuss successful content strategy tips for the modern marketer of the future.
We all know high-quality content is key for success, but what good is this content without a proper strategy in place?
Content is the key element to every online marketing activity. From social media and paid advertising, to blog marketing, email marketing, and SEO – all of these online marketing activities require high quality content in order to produce results. In fact, Demand Metric conducted a study that shows an amazing 78 percent of Chief Marketing Officers (CMOs) believe custom content is the future of digital marketing.
However, high quality content marketing is only one piece of this intricate marketing equation. In the ever-evolving world of online marketing, a business needs to conduct significant research and focus on the development and execution of a winning content strategy to reach its goals.
We would like to introduce you to five key aspects you need to consider when creating a killer content strategy for success. Each one of the following aspects will be expanded upon in individual blog posts to follow.
