What is Digital Marketing for Architects?

Simply put, digital marketing for architects is a way to advertise products and services to architects through online channels like websites, search engines, social media, email, or mobile apps.

Most architects think of digital advertising as another phrase for SEO or paid ads. While both of those services are used in online marketing, neither fully explain the depth of a fresh website marketing program for architects.

Modern website advertising services include dozens of digital marketing tactics, all working together to help increase visibility and conversions for your architecture firm.

For example, the best architect internet advertising plans will include plans to:

  • Make your architecture firm digital assets (websites, apps, sales funnels) more visible through SEO, social advertising, affiliate marketing, or paid advertising.
  • Create architect landing pages, sales funnels, and optimize your conversion rate to build revenue.
  • Track how visitors interact with your digital assets to help you better understand areas of improvement, retargeting opportunities, or conversion rates.
  • Show the expertise, authority, and trust of your architecture firm with content marketing, video production, link building, reviews, and social proof.
  • Grow your architecture firm through email marketing, SMS marketing, and social media management.

We're a team of digital advertising consultants with deep knowledge of internet advertising needs for architecture firms. Take advantage of our experience in more than 100 business industries, including architecture firms, to help generate traffic and build conversions across your digital assets.

SEO Tactics for Architecture Firms

To boost your website's search engine placement and appear on the first page for competitive keywords, you need to adopt a comprehensive approach to SEO as part of your architect digital advertising service. This means reviewing your technical, on-page, and off-page SEO since all three aspects of search engine optimization work together to show value to search engines.

As we bring on new clients in the architect field for digital marketing, we commonly discover problems related to site speed, content quality, and the backlink profile. To tackle these SEO challenges and improve your search optimization, off-page, technical, and on-page SEO optimizations can be utilized. Let's explore more about each of these architecture firm SEO plans:

  • Technical SEO encompasses page performance, website security, XML sitemaps, website architecture, structured data, Open Graph tags, and broken pages, among other factors. These elements affect the way Google crawls and indexes your content, and how visitors interact with your architect website. You typically need the assistance of a website developer to improve technical SEO issues since they are often related to the platform or template used on your architect site. We have an internal team of website developers skilled in common platforms like WordPress and Shopify.
  • On-Page search engine optimization encompasses various elements, including images, keyword research, content silos, content writing, internal linking, competitive analysis, frequently asked questions, page titles, meta tags, and images. Improving these areas of the on-page search engine optimization will allow search engines to better understand the value of your content and recognize your architecture firm as an authority on the subject matter. Moreover, it can aid in enhancing significant metrics like "time on site" for your visitors, which indicates to search engines that you provided something beneficial to the searcher. Content creation plays a crucial role in your architecture firm internet marketing plan, and should not be overlooked.
  • Offsite search engine optimization is essentially the state of your backlink profile, which is the number of backlinks and referring domains pointing to your architecture firm, the naturalness of your anchor text and link velocity, the authority and relevance of your backlinks, signals from social media channels, and many other factors. By establishing natural backlinks to your website and internal pages, you can communicate to search engines that your website and content are reputable and deserving of recognition from third-party sources.

To make sure your architecture firm digital marketing plan is effective, it's essential to take a comprehensive approach to SEO that addresses all the important areas, rather than just a select few. If you build an incredibly fast website without useful content or quality backlinks you will likely never see the first page of search results, except in unique circumstances. The same is true for other scenarios where two areas of SEO have been optimized, but one was neglected. For a comprehensive online advertising strategy that will keep your architecture firm ahead of the competition, it's important to give equal attention to all areas of the search engine optimization checklist.

Backlink Authority Building Strategies for Architecture Firms

Most architecture firms tend to overlook the importance of creating authoritative links in off-page SEO, which is why it is worth emphasizing this aspect of search engine optimization.

Large retailers in product-specific searches and long-standing service providers in local search results are often the top results for competitive keywords and long-tail phrases on the first page of search results. If you further review the exact pages of these search results you will often find the number of backlinks to those pages is far greater than those to your relevant architecture firm web pages. This is because search engines use backlinks to gauge the authority of your architecture firm website and content on a specific topic.

By utilizing white-hat SEO backlink building services, you can develop quality backlinks to your homepage and internal pages, which will help enhance your web pages' placement. It is critical to see this as a long-term endeavor for the digital advertising strategy of your architecture firm. Don't get excited about this for a few weeks and build dozens of backlinks, then move on to something else for several months or years. Skipping the long-term commitment of building high-quality backlinks will hinder your chances of appearing on the first page of search results. You need to establish a link-building plan that will provide consistent and steady growth of quality backlinks from relevant websites and social media platforms. Overdoing exact-match phrases, purchasing excessive backlinks from PBNs, or engaging in black-hat link-building techniques will only harm the natural state of your backlink profile.

Our online advertising campaigns for architecture firms involve the use of several white-hat link-building techniques, which include:

  • Utilizing the “Skyscraper Technique” to build a bigger, better version of a ranked content article from a competitive architecture firm.
  • Composing detailed articles and having them published on third-party websites as a guest post, with a link that directs readers to your architecture firm website, can help promote your small business.
  • Getting in touch with prominent architect websites and suggesting content enhancements for their current articles, which may have become outdated or overlooked a relevant topic, is a proactive approach.
  • Adding your website to industry-specific directories by scanning competitors to see their most valuable business listings and NAP citations (Name, Address, Phone).

Online Reputation Management (ORM) Strategies for Architecture Firms

Search engine ranking algorithms and consumer purchasing decisions are influenced by your online reputation, which serves as a crucial trust factor. This is true for all types of purchases and decision-making, ranging from the selection of a local service provider, the purchase of a product on an ecommerce store, and even the selection of architects. Positive and negative experiences of others with your architecture firm are both intriguing to readers.

To raise the number of reviews from previous customers for your architecture firm, we can support local service companies in creating a review generation plan as part of their website marketing plan. This often involves collecting reviews on Google My Business, UpCity, Yellow Pages, Angi, Yelp, and other online review collection websites.

For architecture firms that focus on ecommerce, we can support you in obtaining reviews for your products and your company. For an ecommerce business, it is important to collect reviews for both the quality of your products and the customer service experience of your architecture firm. Online shoppers want to know the product they are purchasing is of sufficient quality or utility, but they also need to know you will be there to fulfill the order and answer questions after the sale.

For the reputation of professional service providers, such as doctors or attorneys, we can help establish protocols within your digital marketing campaign for the collection of testimonials to ensure prospects always see a positive image of your architects. This includes review generation, reputation monitoring, online reputation repair, survey campaigns, and social growth. In some cases, even SEO can be used to help curate the best possible first-page results for the online reputation of your architecture firm.

The risk of ignoring your online reputation is the loss of long-term business, which often isn't noticed until significant damage has been accumulated. Take control of your online reputation today to ensure you always put forth a better image than your competition.

Content Marketing Strategies for Architecture Firms

Most architecture firms use content marketing as a means of attracting, engaging, and retaining a high-interest audience by creating and sharing relevant blog articles, instructional videos, case studies, white papers, and other digital media. This online marketing approach helps establish your architecture firm as an industry thought leader, while also helping you dominate organic search results and the attention span of your target audience.

When your target clients begin to identify your architecture firm as the source of valuable advice or guidance you will find it is easier to guide them through your sales funnel. We help architect online advertising clients put together the right content marketing plan for their architecture firm.

It is important to identify your target audience before starting a content marketing service. This will help you understand the best media format for the content, whether that be informative blog posts, detailed case studies, informal whitepapers, best-in-class listicles, or drip email campaigns. It will also help you determine the best delivery method, which can be from social media, search results, or some other medium.

We often help implement content marketing strategies for architects that involve blog content, infographics, podcasts, videos, email campaigns, whitepapers, case studies, surveys, webinars, checklists, listicles, and lead magnets. We particularly like using the case study method because it is a powerful tool for showing expertise as a leading digital advertising service provider. These are all effective ways to market content if you implement them correctly for your architecture firm.

Social Media Advertising Campaigns for Architecture Firms

The use of social ads in online advertising involves PPC advertising being run on social platforms like TikTok, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and TikTok. These social media channels offer a quick and effective method for connecting to your target audience by allowing you to select interests, behaviors, and demographics. However, the downside can be the added cost of setting up the campaigns, creating landing pages, building out sales funnels, and performing conversion rate optimization to ensure the paid ads function as a proper lead generation or sales generation tool for your architecture firm.

By leveraging the data sources of social media platforms, architecture firms can hyper-target their audiences to deliver personalized content based on demographics, behaviors, interests, and other factors. While this is an enormous opportunity for most established architecture firms, it can be an expensive lesson for businesses that aren't ready to take full advantage of social media ads.

We help architecture firms build out the necessary sales funnels and lead generation tools to make the most of their social media advertising. In addition, we suggest creating tactics for conversion optimization and retargeting as part of our digital marketing campaigns, as both tactics can enhance the return on ad spend for your campaigns. Let's not forget to mention the freshness of your ad creatives. When running architecture firm social media advertising campaigns, you must be mindful of ad decay and ad fatigue to prevent your campaigns from becoming stagnant and suffering from degraded performance.

Search Engine Marketing Strategies for Architecture Firms

The use of search engine ads in website advertising involves paid ads being run on search engines like Google and Bing. You will find that Google Ads and Bing Ads offer a quick and effective method for connecting your architecture firm to an engaged audience that is actively searching for your products or services. The downside is the cost of setting up an effective and scalable PPC advertising service for your architecture firm, which often involves the creation of landing pages or sales funnels that are optimized for conversion opportunities.

We help architecture firms of all sizes build out the necessary landing pages and funnels to improve leads and generate revenue, which makes paid advertising a cost-effective website marketing plan. For any search engine marketing service, we recommend creating a plan for retargeting and conversion rate optimization to improve your return on investment.

Developing Sales Funnels for Architecture Firms

A sales funnel, or purchase funnel, is the visual representation of journeys taken by clients with your architecture firm. The illustration of a sales funnel, which is often referred to as a marketing funnel or revenue funnel, looks just like a physical funnel you'd use to pour a liquid into a container. The top of the funnel is always larger because it illustrates the large number of potential clients that might interact with your architecture firm. The funnel narrows at the bottom to represent the various exit points within the sales process. Naturally, the bottom of the funnel is the smallest part because it represents the number of people who converted through the generation of a lead or the sale of a product.

The development of a sales funnel for architecture firms is more difficult than the explanation of its concepts. For example, some of the most successful sales funnels produce millions of dollars of value each day for their owners. To launch a conversion funnel that produces value for your architecture firm, you must put thought into the goal of the sales funnel and the type of sales funnel you want to implement.

There are numerous types of sales funnels, including premium customer funnels, free plus shipping funnels, affiliate sales funnels, self-liquidating funnels, automated webinar funnels, lead magnet funnels, and dozens of others to consider for your architecture firm. When you work with one of our architect-focused digital marketing professionals, you will have an experienced internet marketer to bounce ideas off to help you determine the best type of revenue funnel for your architecture firm. Alternatively, if you don't have an interest in being involved in the process, we can research more about your architecture firm to determine the best funnels to explore and test within your internet advertising plan.

CRO for Architecture Firms

There is almost no reason to neglect conversion rate optimization within architect website marketing plans. This is a critical aspect of any type of digital marketing for architects since it directly impacts the ability of the marketing service to provide value for the architecture firm paying for the marketing service.

Boosting conversion rates can have a huge impact on your bottom line. Before you pursue a CRO strategy for your architecture firm, it is important to understand what it is, how it works, and how to evaluate the service. This is a time-intensive process that involves plenty of iterative research and testing. What makes it most difficult is the CRO tactics that work for one architect might not work for another architect.

The most common architect CRO plans include reducing form fields on contact forms, testing different call-to-action phrases, creating appealing headlines, implementing a sense of urgency, fixing mobile website issues, improving page speed, adding exit-intent popups, defining value for the visitor, and adding trust and social proof signals.

True conversion rate optimization for architects can become much more complex. To really dive into CRO, we must fully understand your business offer, your competitors, the strengths and weaknesses of your value proposition, how visitors are currently interacting with your digital assets, the online reputation of your architects, and many other factors.

Email Marketing Tactics for Architecture Firms

You can use email marketing within a digital strategy to drive brand awareness, get site traffic, improve sales and revenue, bring awareness to your social media profiles, engage past architects, and gain valuable information about your target audience.

We help our online advertising architecture firm clients use Mail Chimp, Campaign Monitor, and Constant Contact within their email marketing plans. These are robust email marketing tools to create subscriber lists, segment your audience, and even develop email marketing drip services.

The most important part of email marketing is developing a plan to increase your subscribers. We help email marketing architecture firm clients build and nurture their email marketing lists by implementing email collection opportunities within exit-intent popups, checkout processes, squeeze pages, referral programs, affiliate programs, lead magnets, and numerous other methods.

Lead Gen for Architecture Firms

For nearby service providers, the most important part of an inbound marketing program is lead generation. Not everything can be sold on the internet. For a lot of products and services, a phone conversation or in-person conversation is needed to close the sale. For these types of business industries, lead generation tactics are going to be critical.

There are many types of lead generation strategies to consider, all of which have been tried and implemented by our online marketing team, for architects and other professionals, at some point in the past. The most common lead gen plans for architects include the creation of helpful content, retargeting past website visitors, nurturing past contacts with email marketing, engaging visitors with live chat, developing free tools for visitors to use, creating referral programs and affiliate programs, creating video content that can be shared online, setting up free webinars for visitors to attend, or offering helpful downloadable content in a lead magnet.

For most architect website advertising services where lead generation is a primary goal, our team will develop and implement one or more lead gen strategies in your digital assets to test what works best for your architecture firm.

Video Marketing for Architecture Firms

As a comprehensive internet marketing agency for architects, we have our own in-house video production and video marketing department. This has been extremely helpful for architecture firm content marketing tactics that required original video assets. More importantly, we've used our video production department for the creation of video ads on YouTube and video marketing within Facebook Ads campaigns. There are many great applications for video production within your website advertising strategy for your architecture firm. You can use videos to demonstrate unique products, teach new concepts, and improve visitor duration. You can also implement videos within digital marketing plans to bring life to paid campaigns.

Why You Should Invest in Internet Marketing for Your Architecture Firm

For architecture firms that rely on selling products or services, marketing is an eventual consideration to improve revenue. There are many reasons to consider online marketing over other, more traditional, marketing plans for your architecture firm. Let's go over some of the great reasons to implement our website advertising strategy within your architecture firm:

  • When compared to other marketing techniques, digital marketing is often more economical for architects since it can be launched with a modest budget and then expanded as its effectiveness is assessed.
  • By utilizing useful analytics tools such as Google Analytics, you can obtain more comprehensive data on the number of visitors who engaged with your brand, the duration of their engagement with your marketing efforts, and whether they returned to your website in the days, weeks, or months following their initial interaction.
  • These days, individuals are consistently utilizing their phones, tablets, and desktop computers. Why not opt for a marketing approach and platform that has the capability to pursue your target audience wherever they travel in life?
  • Digital advertising offers much more versatility than print marketing, billboard ads, television commercials, or radio ads, which are not as easy to update.
  • Among marketing techniques, internet marketing for architects offers the most opportunity for user engagement. Obtaining comments, likes, or shares for non-digital advertisements of your architecture firm can be very difficult.

6 Key Focus Points for Website Success

How to Develop a Internet Advertising Program for Architecture Firms

It is essential to devise a plan with specific business goals that can be measured prior to launching your online marketing service for your architecture firm. You want to ensure everyone involved understands the ultimate goal of the website marketing plan to prevent spending time on ideas that won't positively impact your architecture firm.

1.) Identify your target audience

With a clear set of business goals in place for your architects, you can move on to identifying a target audience. It's vital to have a clear understanding of your intended audience. This helps you tailor your architecture firm digital marketing efforts to platforms your audience engages in and that you use messaging that resonates with your target audience.

2.) Find out what your audience needs

With your business goals and target customer established, you can now make an informed decision about the needs and search intent of your audience. This can help ensure that your architects target the appropriate keywords for your digital marketing, and that your content marketing approaches are in sync with your audience's requirements.

3.) Start slower moving services sooner

If you plan to incorporate search engine optimization in the digital strategy of your architecture firm, make that your first priority. In terms of internet advertising tactics, search engine optimization typically takes the longest to gain traction for architecture firms and other businesses. Improvements to your website, content, and backlinks for the website advertising services of architecture firms can take several weeks or even months to fully reflect in search engine placements.

4.) Build out quality landing pages or funnels

This is a good time to consider paid advertising for your architecture firm website, or other digital assets. But before you start sending paid traffic to your home page, product page, or service page, it's important to create a landing page or sales funnel. A common mistake with PPC advertising campaigns for architecture firms is directing traffic to a page that isn't optimized for converting a cold audience, which can result in high bounce rates and low conversion rates. The best lead generation tactics for architecture firms employ the use of splash pages and sales funnels to lead people to the desired marketing outcome.

5.) Set up automated email sequences to retarget potential customers

Once you've established your plans for driving traffic to your architecture firm website, it's essential to consider how to effectively communicate with those visitors beyond their initial visit. Converting every website visitor into a customer is not always possible, and that's why it's important to have a plan for engaging with those who leave without taking action. You should consider options to build an email marketing list, offer SMS alerts for new offers, or set up tracking pixels to retarget recent visitors to your website.

6.) Make testing a regular process

With all of these internet marketing strategies set up for your architecture firm, you can move into the testing and optimization phase. This involves ongoing evaluation of the success of your campaigns, identifying areas for improvement, and even trying out new ideas from case studies or white papers. You should always be in a state of conversion rate optimization throughout all aspects of the online marketing service of your architecture firm.
