In addition to being a full-service digital marketing company, we have multiple internal teams that focus on every type of internet marketing service you need for your Rhode Island small business.

Among the services our online marketers offer Rhode Island clients are SEO, white-hat link building, paid search advertising, social prospecting, public relations, and influencer outreach.

With conversion rate optimization, email marketing, SMS marketing, social media advertising, sales funnel development, lead generation, and more, we help you convert customers and make money!

Let's talk about what our digital marketers can do for your Rhode Island business!

Digital marketing means search engine optimization or paid advertising to most Rhode Island business owners. While both of those services are used in internet marketing, neither fully explain the depth of a modern online marketing program for Rhode Island-based businesses.

Our Digital Marketing Services for Rhode Island Small Businesses

We're a team of digital marketing experts who know and understand the latest internet marketing trends for Rhode Island businesses. We've helped drive traffic and improve conversions across more than 100 business industries in Rhode Island, and the rest of the United States, so let's work together.

SEO Strategies for Rhode Island Small Businesses

If you want your website to appear on the first page of search results throughout Rhode Island for competitive phrases, you have to take a holistic approach to your digital marketing campaign. You'll need to do technical, on-page, and off-page search engine optimization, because all three aspects of SEO work together.

New digital marketing clients in Rhode Island often have problems with page speed, content quality, and backlink profiles. All of these SEO problems can be solved with technical, on-page, and off-page SEO. Now let's take a look at each of these Rhode Island SEO services:

  • Technical SEO for Rhode Island businesses includes factors such as page speed, site security, XML sitemaps, site architecture, structured data, Open Graph tags, and broken pages. These affect how Google reads and traverses your content, and how visitors interact with your Rhode Island site. Typically Rhode Island web developers are needed to fix technical SEO problems since they are often caused by the theme or platform your website uses. Our developers are skilled in WordPress, Joomla, Magento, Shopify, BigCommerce, and Laravel.
  • On-site SEO for Rhode Island websites includes things like keyword research, content silos, content writing, internal linking, competitive analysis, frequently asked questions, page titles, meta tags, images, and videos. Search engines can better understand your content and recognize you as an authority on the subject matter within Rhode Island or the entirety of the United States when you improve these on-page SEO areas. 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. Content creation is an important part of your Rhode Island online marketing strategy.
  • A big part of Rhode Island SEO involves your backlink profile which includes the number and quality of backlinks pointing to your website, the naturalness of your anchor text and link velocity, the authority and relevancy of your links, social signals, and a lot more. To help search engines understand your Rhode Island website and content are worthy of third-party recognition, build natural backlinks to the homepage and interior pages.

In your Rhode Island digital marketing strategy, you can't focus just on one or two areas of an SEO strategy. A fast website with no content or backlinks will rarely rank on the first page of search results. The same is true for other scenarios where two areas of SEO have been optimized, but one was neglected. Ensure that your Rhode Island competitors (and national competitors) can't just pass you by completing all the SEO checklist items.

Rhode Island Small Business Link Building Campaigns

Although we've already discussed the importance of building authoritative links in off-page SEO, it's worth pointing out again since Rhode Island business owners often don't understand this part of search engine optimization.

You'll almost always find large retailers in product-specific search results and long-standing service companies in local Rhode Island results if you look at the first page of search results for competitive keywords and long-tail phrases. The number of backlinks to those pages is often far greater than the number of links to your own pages. That is because search engines use backlinks to determine how authoritative your website and content are on a particular subject.

Using white-hat SEO link building services, you can improve your own web pages by building quality backlinks to your homepage and interior pages. You need to think of this as a long-term strategy for your Rhode Island digital marketing campaign. Be consistent though! Don't start building backlinks for a few months and then shift your focus to some other SEO tactic for months or years. Being inconsistent with link building is a major reason why you might not ever see the placement you require. Establish a link-building strategy that will drive quality backlinks to your Rhode Island website from relevant pages and social accounts. Most of all, you need to keep the backlink profile of your Rhode Island website natural by not overdoing exact-match phrases, buying numerous backlinks from private block networks (PBNs), or participating in any other black-hat link-building method.

When it comes to Rhode Island digital marketing, we use a number of white-hat link building techniques, including:

  • Using the "Skyscraper Technique" to get a bigger, better version of a competing article.
  • Having in-depth articles featured on third-party websites as a guest post, with a link back to your Rhode Island site.
  • Reaching out to high-authority sites to improve existing articles that might have become outdated or did not cover a topic that's relevant to your Rhode Island business.
  • Responding to HARO requests for expert opinions from reporters looking for insight into your business industry.
  • Adding your website to industry-specific directories by scanning Rhode Island competitors (or national competitors) to see their most valuable business listings and NAP citations (Name, Address, Phone).

Rhode Island Online Reputation Management Services (ORM)

Search engines use your online reputation in Rhode Island to determine rank positions, and your target audience uses it to make buying decisions. All kinds of decisions are made from this reputational signals, from choosing a local service provider in Rhode Island to shopping online or hiring a doctor or attorney for a personal matter. People love to read about the good and bad experiences others have had with your Rhode Island brand.

We can help Rhode Island small business owners develop a review generation program within their digital marketing to increase the rate at which past customers leave reviews. This often involves collecting reviews on Google My Business, UpCity, Yellow Pages, Angie's List, Yelp, and other online review collection websites.

We can help you collect product and company reviews if you're an ecommerce business. If you're an ecommerce business, you should collect reviews for both your products and your customer service. Rhode Island shoppers want to know that the product they're buying is of good quality, but they also want to know you'll be there to fulfill the order and answer questions afterward.

For professional service providers, such as Rhode Island doctors or Rhode Island lawyers, we can help set up protocols for the collection of testimonials in your online marketing campaign to make sure prospects always see a positive view of you. If you need reviews, reputation monitoring, negative feedback improvements, surveys, and social media promotion, we can do it for you. In some cases, even SEO can be used to help curate the best possible first-page results for your online reputation in and around Rhode Island.

If you ignore your online reputation, you run the risk of losing long-term business, which is often not noticed until it's too late. Don't let your local competition take advantage of your online reputation. Take control now!

Rhode Island Small Business Content Marketing Strategies

Businesses in Rhode Island use content marketing to attract, engage, and retain high-interest audiences by creating and sharing relevant blogs, instructional videos, case studies, white papers, and other digital content. With this digital marketing approach for Rhode Island websites, you establish your company as an industry leader, while also dominating organic search results and keeping people interested.

When your target customers in and around Rhode Island begin to identify your brand as the source of valuable advice or guidance you will find it is easier to guide them through your sales funnel. Putting together the right content marketing plan for Rhode Island businesses is what we do.

Before you start content marketing, you should figure out who your target audience is. This will let you know what's best for the content, whether it's 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 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 Rhode Island digital marketing service provider. These are all effective ways to market content if you implement them correctly within your Rhode Island business.

Social Media Advertising Services for Rhode Island Small Businesses

The use of social media ads in Rhode Island digital marketing involves paid ads being run on social platforms like Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, LinkedIn, and Instagram. 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 Rhode Island company.

By leveraging the data sources of social media platforms, advertisers are able to 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 Rhode Island companies, it can be an expensive method for businesses that aren't ready to take full advantage of social media advertising.

We help Rhode Island small businesses and large corporations build out the necessary sales funnels and lead generation tools to make the most of their social media ads. We also recommend putting in place plans for conversion optimization and retargeting within these Rhode Island digital marketing services, both of which will help improve the return on ad spend you see within your campaigns. Let's not forget to mention the freshness of your ad creatives. When running a social media marketing campaign, you have to be mindful of ad decay and ad fatigue to prevent your campaigns from becoming stagnant and suffering from degraded performance.

Search Engine Marketing Services for Rhode Island Small Businesses

The use of Rhode Island search engine marketing in digital marketing 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 Rhode Island business 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, which often involves the creation of landing pages or sales funnels that are optimized for conversion opportunities.

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

Sales Funnel Development for Rhode Island Small Businesses

A sales funnel, or purchase funnel, is the visual representation of your customer's journey with your Rhode Island company. 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 customers that might interact with your Rhode Island business. 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 actually converted through the generation of a lead or the sale of a product.

The development of a sales funnel for your Rhode Island business 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 Rhode Island businesses. To develop a sales funnel that produces value for your Rhode Island business, you have to 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 self-liquidating funnels, automated webinar funnels, lead magnet funnels, premium client funnels, free plus shipping funnels, affiliate sales funnels, and dozens of others to consider. When you work with one of our digital marketing specialists, you will have an experienced digital marketer to bounce ideas off to help you determine the best type of revenue funnel for your business. Alternatively, if you don't have an interest in being involved in the process, we can research more about your business and industry to determine the best funnels to explore and test within your Rhode Island digital marketing campaign.

Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO) for Rhode Island Small Businesses

There is almost no reason to neglect conversion rate optimization within Rhode Island digital marketing services. This is a critical aspect of any type of online marketing in Rhode Island since it directly impacts the ability of the marketing service to provide value for the small business or large corporation paying for the marketing service.

Boosting conversion rates can have a huge impact on your bottom line. Before you pursue a CRO strategy, 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 strategies that work for one Rhode Island business might not work for a different Rhode Island business, even when both are in the same industry.

The most common 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 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 Rhode Island websites can become much more complex. To really dive into CRO, we have to fully understand your business offer, your competitors, the strengths and weaknesses of your value proposition, how visitors are currently interacting with your digital assets, your online reputation in Rhode Island, and many other factors.

Email Marketing Services for Rhode Island Small Businesses

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

We help our Rhode Island digital marketing clients use Mail Chimp, Campaign Monitor, and Constant Contact for their email marketing campaigns. 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 Rhode Island email marketing clients build and nurture their email marketing lists by implementing email collection opportunities within lead magnets, exit-intent popups, checkout processes, squeeze pages, referral programs, affiliate programs, and numerous other methods.

Lead Generation Strategies for Rhode Island Small Businesses

For local service providers in Rhode Island, 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, Rhode Island 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 digital marketing team at some point in the past. The most common lead gen strategies 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, and offering helpful downloadable content in a lead magnet.

For most digital marketing campaigns 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 Rhode Island small business.

Video Marketing for Rhode Island Small Businesses

As a full-service digital marketing firm for Rhode Island, we have our own in-house video production and video marketing department. This has been extremely helpful for content marketing strategies 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 great applications for video production within your Rhode Island digital marketing strategy. You can use videos to demonstrate unique products, teach new concepts, and improve visitor duration.

Why You Should Invest in Digital Marketing for Your Rhode Island Website

If you run a business in Rhode Island that sells products or services, you're going to need marketing to increase sales. You might be thinking about Rhode Island digital marketing services over other, more traditional, marketing strategies. Let's go over some of the great reasons to implement a digital marketing strategy within your Rhode Island business:

  • Digital marketing can often be more affordable than other forms of marketing, because it can be started with a small budget and scaled up as it succeeds.
  • By using powerful tools like Google Analytics, you can see how many visitors interacted with your brand, how long the marketing kept their interest, and if they came back to your website days, weeks, or months after their first interaction.
  • In Rhode Island, people are constantly on their phone, tablets, and computers. Choose a marketing format and medium that enables you to reach your target audience anywhere they go in Rhode Island, and beyond.
  • Rhode Island digital advertising has way more flexibility than print marketing, billboard ads, TV ads, or radio commercials, which can't be updated as easily.
  • Online marketing in Rhode Island provides the best capacity for user engagement. You'll have to work hard to get people to like, comment, and share your non-digital ads in Rhode Island!

How to Develop Rhode Island Digital Marketing Programs

To start a digital marketing campaign for your Rhode Island business, you need a plan with measurable goals. Your team needs to know what the business's ultimate goal is so you don't spend time on things that won't help.

With a clear set of business goals in place, you can move on to identifying a target audience. Knowing who you're targeting in Rhode Island or beyond is important. You can then make sure you're targeting your Rhode Island digital marketing to the platforms your audience is active on and using messaging that agrees with them.

By understanding your business goals and your target customer, you can make informed decisions about the needs and search intent of your Rhode Island audience. You'll be able to focus on the right keywords for your Rhode Island digital marketing and align your content marketing strategy to your audience's needs.

Search engine optimization should be your first priority if you plan to incorporate it into your Rhode Island digital strategy. The slowest moving digital marketing tactic in Rhode Island is search engine optimization. Search engines take weeks or months to recognize and index the changes you make to your website, your content, and your backlinks.

There's no better time to promote your Rhode Island business and its digital assets than right now. You should consider creating a landing page or sales funnel instead of sending paid traffic to your homepage, product page, or service page. Ad campaigns in Rhode Island that have high bounce rates and low conversion rates often send traffic to a page that isn't optimized for converting cold traffic. A good Rhode Island lead generation strategy uses splash pages and sales funnels to drive people to the goal.

Now that plans are in place for bringing traffic to your Rhode Island website, you should consider how to best interact with those visitors after they leave your website. You can't expect everyone who visits your website, landing page, or sales funnel to convert. Consider building an email list, sending SMS alerts for new offers, or setting up tracking pixels to retarget Rhode Island website visitors.

If you've got all these Rhode Island digital marketing strategies in place, you're ready to test and optimize. In doing this, you're measuring how well your campaigns are doing, looking for ways to improve them, and even trying new ideas you read about in case studies or white papers. You should always be in a state of conversion rate optimization throughout all aspects of your Rhode Island digital marketing campaign.
