Vermont Digital Marketing Experts

We've been offering to assist Vermont-area businesses and corporations strengthen their online marketing for more than 18 years. 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 Vermont small business. This is not true of all digital marketing companies throughout Vermont, since most only have a single group of SEO, PPC, or social media professionals. For those Vermont-area internet marketing companies, progress delays may occur while their team searches for the necessary skilled website designers, communicates with those newly found marketing experts, and then serves as the go-between on future communication between you and the third-party performing the work.

To help attract new audiences and boost brand awareness, our Vermont-focused digital marketing experts help clients with SEO strategy, 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 your Vermont company's internet marketing! While we offer complete internet marketing services to Vermont small businesses, we can augment the marketing department of your large corporation to fill in any gaps. See what our digital marketing programs can do for Vermont websites.

What is Digital Marketing for Vermont Businesses?

It's pretty simple: Vermont digital marketing is all about advertising products or services through online channels like websites, search engines, social media, email, and mobile apps.

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

The latest digital marketing campaigns often use a number of internet marketing strategies, all working together to help you get more visibility and conversions throughout Vermont and the rest of the United States.

For example, the best digital marketing services in Vermont will include tactics to:

  • Promote your digital assets (websites, apps, sales funnels, etc) via SEO, social media, affiliate marketing, or paid advertising.
  • Boost your Vermont business's revenue through landing page creation, sales funnel development, and conversion rate optimization.
  • Analyze how visitors navigate your digital assets to figure out improvement areas, retargeting opportunities, and conversion rates.
  • Build trust in Vermont by using content marketing, video production, link building, reviews, and social proof.
  • Build and nurture relationships through email marketing, SMS marketing, and social media management.

Our digital marketing agency is happy to provide Burlington, Colchester, Essex, Middlebury, and Milton with professional internet marketing services.

SEO Strategies for Vermont Small Businesses

If you want your website to appear on the first page of search results throughout Vermont for competitive phrases, you have to take a holistic approach to your digital marketing campaign. This means reviewing your technical, on-page, and off-page search engine optimization, since all three aspects of SEO work together, to show value to search engines.

New digital marketing clients in Vermont often have problems with page speed, content quality, and backlink profiles. Technical, on-page, and off-page SEO can fix each of these issues and more. Here's what each Vermont SEO service offers:

  • Technical SEO services for Vermont businesses involve things like page speed, site security, XML sitemaps, site architecture, structured data, and broken links. These impact how Google reads and traverses your content, and how visitors interact with your Vermont website. You'll typically need Vermont web developers to fix technical SEO issues, since they're often related to your website's platform or theme. We have an internal team of web developers skilled in common platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Magento, Shopify, BigCommerce, and Laravel.
  • There are several factors involved with on-page SEO for Vermont websites, such as content silos, content writing, internal linking, keyword research, frequently asked questions, competitive analysis, 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 Vermont or the entirety of the United States when you improve these on-page SEO areas. Furthermore, it'll boost important metrics like "time on site" for your visitors, which tells search engines you provided something valuable for the user. It's never too late to start creating content for your online marketing campaign in Vermont.
  • Off-Page SEO for Vermont websites is essentially the state of your backlink profile, which is the number of backlinks and referring domains pointing to your website, 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. To help search engines understand that your Vermont website and content is worth mentioning, it's important to build natural backlinks to the homepage and interior pages.

The important takeaway is to understand you can't focus on just one or two areas of search engine optimization in your Vermont digital marketing strategy. A fast website that doesn't have content or backlinks isn't likely to rank on page one of search results. The same applies to situations where two parts of SEO are optimized, but one is neglected. Make sure you're keeping track of all the elements on the Vermont SEO checklist so your competitors can't easily bypass you in search rankings.

Vermont Small Business Link Building Campaigns

We've already briefly discussed the importance of building authoritative links in off-page SEO, but it's worth mentioning again since Vermont business owners often don't understand this area of search engine optimization.

You'll almost always find large retailers in product-specific search results and long-standing service companies in local Vermont results if you look at the first page of search results for competitive keywords and long-tail phrases. 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 your own relevant pages. It's because search engines use backlinks to determine how authoritative your content and website is on a given subject.

In order to improve your own pages, you have to build quality backlinks to your home page and interior pages with white-hat SEO link building services. You need to think of this as a long-term strategy for your Vermont 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. That lack of commitment will only serve to keep you off the first page of Vermont search results. Establish a link-building strategy that will drive quality backlinks to your Vermont website from relevant pages and social accounts. Most of all, you need to keep the backlink profile of your Vermont 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.

As part of our Vermont digital marketing services, we use white-hat link building tactics like:

  • Using the "Skyscraper Technique" to get a bigger, better version of a competing article.
  • Writing in-depth articles to have featured on third-party websites as a guest post, which includes a link back to your Vermont website.
  • Reaching out to high-authority websites to suggest content improvements to existing articles that may have become outdated, or didn't cover a specific topic relevant to your Vermont business.
  • Responding to HARO requests from news reporters looking for expert opinions and feedback from people in your business industry.
  • Adding your website to industry-specific directories by scanning Vermont competitors (or national competitors) to see their most valuable business listings and NAP citations (Name, Address, Phone).

Online Reputation Management Services (ORM) for Vermont Small Businesses

Your online reputation in Vermont and beyond is an important trust factor search engines use to determine rank positions, and your target audience uses it to make purchasing decisions. This is true for all types of purchases and decision-making, ranging from the selection of a local service provider in Vermont, the purchase of a product on an ecommerce store, and even the selection of a physician or attorney for a personal matter. People love reading about the positive experiences, and sometimes even more about negative experiences, that others had with your Vermont brand.

For local service companies in Vermont, we can help you develop a review generation program within your digital marketing to increase the rate at which past customers leave reviews for your business. This often involves collecting reviews on Google My Business, UpCity, Yellow Pages, Angie's List, Yelp, and other online review collection websites.

If you run an ecommerce business, 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 Vermont storefront. Online shoppers in Vermont 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 Vermont doctors or Vermont attorneys, we can help establish protocols within your online marketing campaign for the collection of testimonials to ensure prospects always see a positive image of you. This includes review generation, reputation monitoring, online reputation repair, survey campaigns, and social media growth for your Vermont website. In some cases, even SEO can be used to help curate the best possible first-page results for your online reputation in and around Vermont.

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 local competition.

Content Marketing Strategies for Vermont Small Businesses

Most Vermont businesses 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 digital marketing approach for Vermont websites helps establish your company as an industry thought leader, while also helping you dominate organic search results and the attention span of your target audience.

When your target customers in and around Vermont 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. We help Vermont digital marketing clients put together the right content marketing plan for their specific business industry and goals.

It is important to identify your target audience before starting a content marketing plan. 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 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 Vermont digital marketing service provider. These are all effective ways to market content if you implement them correctly within your Vermont business.

Social Media Advertising Services for Vermont Small Businesses

The use of social media ads in Vermont 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 Vermont 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 Vermont companies, it can be an expensive method for businesses that aren't ready to take full advantage of social media advertising.

We help Vermont 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 Vermont 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 Vermont Small Businesses

The use of Vermont 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 Vermont 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 Vermont digital marketing strategy. For any search engine marketing campaign in Vermont, we recommend creating a plan for retargeting and conversion rate optimization to improve your return on investment.

Sales Funnel Development for Vermont Small Businesses

A sales funnel, or purchase funnel, is the visual representation of your customer's journey with your Vermont 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 Vermont 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 Vermont 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 Vermont businesses. To develop a sales funnel that produces value for your Vermont 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 Vermont digital marketing campaign.

Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO) for Vermont Small Businesses

There is almost no reason to neglect conversion rate optimization within Vermont digital marketing services. This is a critical aspect of any type of online marketing in Vermont 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 Vermont business might not work for a different Vermont 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 Vermont 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 Vermont, and many other factors.

Email Marketing Services for Vermont 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 Vermont 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 Vermont 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 Vermont Small Businesses

For local service providers in Vermont, 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, Vermont 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 Vermont small business.

Video Marketing for Vermont Small Businesses

As a full-service digital marketing firm for Vermont, 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 Vermont digital marketing strategy. You can use videos to demonstrate unique products, teach new concepts, and improve visitor duration. You can also implement videos within Vermont digital advertising campaigns to bring life to paid campaigns.

Why You Should Invest in Digital Marketing for Your Vermont Website

You're going to have to think about marketing in Vermont if you manage a business that sells something. You might be thinking about Vermont 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 Vermont 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.
  • With the use of valuable reporting tools like Google Analytics, you can get better insights into how many visitors interacted with your brand, how long your marketing efforts kept their attention, and if you were able to bring them back to your website in the days, weeks, or months after their first interaction.
  • In Vermont, people are constantly on their phone, tablets, and computers. You might as well choose a format and medium that can follow your target audience wherever they go in Vermont.
  • With digital, you can update it a lot more easily than with print, billboards, television ads, or radio commercials.
  • In Vermont, online marketing is one of the best ways to engage users. Good luck getting people to comment, like, or share your non-digital advertisements throughout Vermont!

How to Develop Vermont Digital Marketing Programs

It's important to create a plan with measurable business goals before beginning a digital marketing campaign for your Vermont-based business. 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 Vermont or beyond is important. This helps you tailor your Vermont digital marketing efforts to platforms your audience engages in and that you use messaging that resonates with your target audience.

By understanding your business goals and your target customer, you can make informed decisions about the needs and search intent of your Vermont audience. By doing this, you'll make sure your Vermont digital marketing strategy focuses on the right keywords and you align it with your audience's needs.

You should make search engine optimization your first priority if you're planning on using it eventually within your Vermont digital strategy. In digital marketing, search engine optimization moves the slowest. The improvements you make to your website, your content, and your backlinks can take weeks or months for search engines to fully recognize and have an impact on your rankings.

You should consider paid advertising for your Vermont business. However, rather than sending paid traffic to your homepage, product page, or service page, you should consider the creation of a landing page or sales funnel. Vermont paid advertising campaigns with high bounce rates and low conversion rates typically send traffic to a page that's not optimized for converting cold traffic. A good Vermont lead generation strategy uses splash pages and sales funnels to drive people to the goal.

After your Vermont website is getting traffic, you need to think about how you'll interact with visitors after they leave. Some people won't convert on the first visit to your website, landing page, or sales funnel. 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 Vermont website.

When you have all of these Vermont digital marketing strategies in place, you can start testing and optimizing. This involves constantly measuring the success of your campaigns, looking for areas of improvement, and even trying new ideas that you read about in case studies or white papers. In every aspect of your Vermont digital marketing campaign, you should be optimizing conversion rates.
