Let's talk about what our digital advertisers can do for your consulting firms! We often provide complete digital marketing plans to smaller consulting firms, but we can also augment the marketing department of your large corporation to fill in missing skill sets.

What is Internet Marketing for Consultants?

Digital marketing for consultants is simply advertising products or services through online channels like websites, search engines, social media, email, and mobile apps.

Most consultants think of internet advertising as another phrase for SEO or paid advertising. Even though both services are used for website marketing, neither fully describes the depth of complete website advertising services for consulting firms.

Modern digital marketing plans often include dozens of internet marketing strategies, all working together to help your consulting firm improve visibility and conversions.

For example, the best consultant online marketing services will include strategies to:

  • Boost traffic to your consulting firm digital assets (sales funnels, websites, apps, etc) through SEO, social advertising, affiliate marketing, or PPC advertising.
  • Create consultant landing pages, sales funnels, and optimize your conversion rate to boost revenue.
  • Track how visitors interact with your digital assets to figure out improvement areas, retargeting opportunities, or conversion rates.
  • Show the expertise, authority, and trust of your consulting firm with content marketing, video production, backlink authority building, reviews, and social media proof.
  • Grow your consulting firm through email marketing, SMS marketing, and social media management.

Consultant SEO Strategies

Achieving a first-page search ranking for competitive keywords requires a comprehensive SEO plan as part of your overall online marketing 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.

When we take on new consultant internet marketing customers, we often find website performance, content quality, and backlink quality problems. To tackle these search engine optimization challenges and improve your search optimization, off-page, technical, and on-page SEO optimizations can be utilized. Let's delve into each of these consulting firm search engine optimization plans in greater detail:

  • Technical search engine optimization encompasses page speed, 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 consultant website. To tackle technical search engine optimization challenges, the help of a web developer is usually required since these glitches are often tied to your consultant website's platform or theme. We have an internal team of website developers skilled in common platforms like WordPress and Shopify.
  • On-Page SEO encompasses various elements, including content silos, content writing, internal linking, competitive analysis, frequently asked questions, page titles, meta tags, images, keyword research, and content silos. Enhancing these elements of your on-site search engine optimization can help search engines to more effectively assess the value of your content and establish your consulting firm as an industry expert. In addition, it will help increase important metrics like "time on site" for your visitors, which shows search engines you provided something of value to the search user. Never underestimate the value and importance of content creation within your consulting firm online marketing plan.
  • Off-Page search engine optimization encompasses various factors that determine the quality and naturalness of your backlink profile, including the number of backlinks and referring domains, the relevance and authority of those backlinks, link velocity, social media signals, and more. Building natural backlinks to your website and internal pages is crucial in conveying to search engines that your website and its content are authoritative and deserve recognition from external sources.

To make sure your consulting firm internet 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. A fast website is important, but if your consulting firm has no quality backlinks or useful content, it's unlikely that you'll see it on the first page of search results, except for some uncommon scenarios. Neglecting even one aspect of SEO can hinder your online visibility, even if other areas have been fully optimized. You should evenly distribute your attention to ensure competitors can't bypass your consulting firm by simply completing all the required search engine optimization checklist items.

Consultant Backlink Authority Building

It is worth reiterating the significance of constructing authoritative links in off-page search engine optimization, as this aspect of SEO is often misunderstood by consulting firms.

When you look at the first page of search results for competitive keywords and long-tail phrases, you will almost always find large retailers in product-specific search results and long-standing service providers in local area 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 consulting firm web pages. This is because search engines use backlinks to gauge the authority of your consulting firm website and content on a specific topic.

To enhance the ranking of your web pages, it's essential to acquire quality backlinks to both your homepage and other internal pages through white-hat SEO backlink building services. It's important to recognize that this is a sustained effort for the digital marketing plan of your consulting firm. It's important not to get overly excited for a few weeks and build dozens of backlinks, then abandon it for months or years. Instead, you should view this as a long-term commitment for your internet marketing plan. If you're not committed to the long-term process of building quality backlinks, your consulting firm may continue to struggle to reach the first page of search results. You need to establish a link-building strategy that will provide consistent and steady growth of quality backlinks from relevant websites and social 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.

We employ various white-hat techniques to build links for your consulting firm as part of our website marketing plans. These include:

  • Utilizing the “Skyscraper Technique” to build a bigger, better version of a ranked content article from a competitive consulting firm.
  • Writing in-depth articles to have featured on third-party websites as a guest post, which includes a link back to your consulting firm website.
  • Getting in touch with prominent consultant websites and suggesting content enhancements for their current articles, which may have become outdated or overlooked a relevant topic, is a proactive approach.
  • Increasing your business's online exposure within your industry by registering your website in industry-specific directories with correct NAP citations (Name, Address, Phone).

Consultant Online Reputation Management (ORM) Game Plans

Search engine placement algorithms and consumer purchasing decisions are influenced by your online reputation, which serves as a crucial trust factor. The influence of online reputation applies to diverse purchasing and decision-making scenarios, such as hiring a local area service provider, purchasing a product online, or choosing consulting firms. People love reading about the positive experiences, and sometimes even more about negative experiences, that others had with your consulting firm.

To raise the number of reviews from previous clients for your consulting firm, we can support localized service companies in creating a review generation strategy as part of their website advertising service. This typically requires gathering feedback on various review collection websites, such as Google My Business, UpCity, Yellow Pages, Angi, Yelp, and others.

If you run an ecommerce-focused consulting firm, we can help with the collection of product reviews and company reviews. For an ecommerce business, it is important to collect reviews for both the quality of your products and the customer service experience of your consulting firm. Online shoppers seek confirmation that the item they are buying meets their requirements in terms of quality or usefulness. Moreover, they need to be certain that you will provide prompt delivery and exceptional support to address any issues they may have post-purchase.

We can assist professional service providers, like doctors or attorneys, in devising a structured process for obtaining client testimonials that projects a positive image of your consulting firm, as part of your digital advertising strategy. This entails producing reviews, overseeing online reputation, mending impaired online reputation, executing survey campaigns, and enhancing social presence. SEO can be leveraged to refine the top search results on the first page, which can enhance the online reputation of your consulting 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 Tactics for Consulting Firms

Most consulting 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 advertising approach helps establish your consulting 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 consulting firm as the source of valuable advice or guidance you will find it is easier to guide them through your sales funnel. We help consultant website marketing customers put together the right content marketing service for their consulting firm.

It is important to identify your target audience before starting a content marketing campaign. 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 tactics for consultants 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 internet marketing service provider. These are all effective ways to market content if you implement them correctly for your consulting firm.

Social Media Marketing Services for Consulting Firms

The use of social media ads in website marketing involves paid advertising being run on social platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, and LinkedIn. 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 advertising function as a proper lead generation or sales generation tool for your consulting firm.

By leveraging the data sources of social platforms, consulting 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 consulting firms, it can be an expensive lesson for businesses that aren't ready to take full advantage of social media advertising.

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

Search Ads Game Plans for Consulting Firms

The use of search advertising in digital marketing involves paid advertising 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 consulting firm to an engaged audience that is actively looking for your products or services. The downside is the cost of setting up an effective and scalable paid advertising campaign for your consulting firm, which often involves the creation of landing pages or sales funnels that are optimized for conversion opportunities.

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

Developing Funnels for Consulting Firms

A sales funnel, or purchase funnel, is the visual representation of journeys taken by clients with your consulting 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 consulting 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 consulting 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 use a revenue funnel that produces value for your consulting 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 free plus shipping funnels, affiliate sales funnels, self-liquidating funnels, automated webinar funnels, lead magnet funnels, self-liquidating funnels, and dozens of others to consider for your consulting firm. When you work with one of our consultant-focused digital advertising consultants, you will have an experienced internet advertiser to bounce ideas off to help you determine the best type of revenue funnel for your consulting firm. Alternatively, if you don't have an interest in being involved in the process, we can research more about your consulting firm to determine the best funnels to explore and test within your online marketing service.

Conversion Rate Optimization for Consulting Firms

There is almost no reason to neglect conversion rate optimization within consultant website advertising services. This is a critical aspect of any type of digital marketing for consultants since it directly impacts the ability of the marketing service to provide value for the consulting firm paying for the marketing service.

Boosting conversion rates can have a huge impact on your bottom line. Before you pursue a CRO plan for your consulting 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 plans that work for one consultant might not work for another consultant.

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

True conversion rate optimization for consultants 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 consultants, and many other factors.

Email Marketing Campaigns for Consulting Firms

You can use email marketing within a digital strategy to get brand awareness, increase website traffic, generate sales and revenue, bring awareness to your social profiles, engage past consultants, and gain valuable information about your target audience.

We help our website marketing consulting firm customers use Mail Chimp, Campaign Monitor, and Constant Contact within their email marketing services. These are robust email marketing tools to create subscriber lists, segment your audience, and even develop email marketing drip campaigns.

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

Lead Generation for Consulting Firms

For local 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 gen plans are going to be critical.

There are many types of lead generation tactics to consider, all of which have been tried and implemented by our online advertising team, for consultants and other professionals, at some point in the past. The most common lead gen strategies for consultants 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 consultant digital marketing campaigns where lead generation is a primary goal, our team will develop and implement one or more lead gen tactics in your digital assets to test what works best for your consulting firm.

Video Marketing for Consulting Firms

As a complete internet advertising company for consultants, we have our own in-house video production and video marketing department. This has been extremely helpful for consulting firm content marketing plans that required creative 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 good applications for video production within your digital marketing strategy for your consulting firm. You can use videos to demonstrate unique products, teach new concepts, and improve visitor duration. You can also implement videos within digital advertising services to bring life to paid campaigns.

Why You Should Invest in Internet Advertising for Your Consulting Firm

If you run an consulting firm that depends on selling a product or service, at some point, you will contemplate some type of marketing to boost revenue. There are many reasons to consider online marketing over other, more traditional, marketing plans for your consulting firm. Next, let's explore some of the persuasive grounds for incorporating the website marketing plan into your consulting firm:

  • Digital marketing is frequently more cost-effective for consultants than other marketing methods since it can begin with a small investment and then be expanded as success is evaluated.
  • 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.
  • Everyone is constantly on 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?
  • Compared to print marketing, billboard ads, television commercials, and radio ads, digital marketing provides much greater flexibility because it is much easier to make tweaks.
  • Among marketing techniques, internet marketing for consultants offers the most opportunity for user engagement. Obtaining comments, likes, or shares for non-digital advertisements of your consulting firm can be very difficult.

6 Key Focus Points for Website Success

How to Develop a Internet Advertising Program for Consulting Firms

To kickoff your online marketing service for your consulting firm, it's vital to develop a plan that includes measurable business goals. 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 consulting firm.

1.) Pinpoint your target audience

Once you have established a clear set of business goals for your consulting firm, you can start to identify the audience you want to target. Understanding the people you are trying to reach is essential. This helps you tailor your consulting firm digital marketing efforts to platforms your audience engages in and that you use messaging that resonates with your target audience.

2.) Determine audience needs

Having identified your business objectives and target customers, you can now make a well-informed choice about the needs and search intent of your intended audience. This can help ensure that your consultants target the appropriate keywords for your digital marketing, and that your content marketing approaches are in sync with your audience's requirements.

3.) Begin with services that have a slower pace earlier on

If you intend to include search engine optimization in your consultant digital strategy, make it your top priority. In terms of internet advertising tactics, search engine optimization typically takes the longest to gain traction for consulting firms and other businesses. Improvements to your website, content, and backlinks for the website advertising services of consulting firms can take several weeks or even months to fully reflect in search engine placements.

4.) Creating high-quality landing pages or sales funnels should be a priority

At this stage, it may be worth exploring PPC advertising options for your consulting firm site 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 consulting 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. To achieve effective lead generation, consulting firms should use splash pages and sales funnels to direct visitors to the desired marketing outcome.

5.) Create automated email sequences for retargeting

Now that plans are in place for bringing traffic to your consulting firm, you should consider how to best interact with those visitors after they leave your website. Not everyone who visits your website, landing page, or sales funnel will convert on the first visit. One should explore options to create an email marketing list, give SMS alerts for new promotions, or establish tracking pixels to retarget people who recently browsed through your website.

6.) Incorporate ongoing testing

Once you have implemented all of these digital marketing tactics for your consulting firm, it is time to enter the optimization and testing 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. Your consulting firm internet marketing campaign should always be in a state of conversion rate optimization across all aspects.
