Marketing for Professional Service Firms – BSD

Get in touch

People in search of a specific business or service in today’s society are most likely to do an internet search as their first and main source of information. The internet allows anyone, anywhere to find all of the relevant information on your business, so it is vital to keep your website up to date and utilise various marketing efforts to get your website noticed online.

Marketing for professional service firms can help establish a business’ place in the market and effectively reach their target audience for their service or product offering.

The two main types of online marketing fall under organic and inorganic. There are a wide range of digital marketing strategies available, and it can be a process of figuring out what works best for your business over time. This is especially true for all organic marketing strategies as they do not produce results over night, they require time to take full effect and impact business growth. 

At Bark Street Digital, our experts on professional services marketing can provide bespoke campaigns to suit the individual needs of your business. Effective B2B marketing tools can successfully generate strong leads and new sales, ultimately leading to your continued growth. For more information on how we can help your business then please get in touch today.

Establishing a strong marketing campaign

The two main types of marketing are organic and inorganic. Essentially organic marketing centres around efforts that have cost no money to implement and result in traffic coming ‘naturally’ to your online platforms. Inorganic simply means you have paid for targeted advertisements to direct people to your websites.

The most popular organic marketing techniques revolve around search engine optimisation (SEO), which can successfully drive growth and produce more organic sales for your business if used correctly and continually over a long period of time.

Creating strong quality content with SEO in mind will increase your online presence and both search engines and prospective clients will think of you more highly, resulting in more custom. SEO can work especially well if you work within a niche market as there will be less competition on the search results to be ranked.

Organic marketing activities take a lot more time to implement than inorganic marketing, but it is worth persevering with as it is a strong asset to have and will keep your business at the forefront of the market.

If you are looking to pursue an organic growth strategy using marketing then SEO is undeniably the strongest tool at your disposal. At BSD, we offer comprehensive SEO audits and content writing to assist our clients with their organic growth and lead generating efforts.

Any business model can benefit from SEO, as it looks for the most popular keywords and phrases searched for in your industry and will rank websites higher if they utilise content that incorporate the popular search phrases. Other factors such as website speed and website design also have an impact on how high a search engine will rank your page. If you are utilising all of the tools available to you then we can expect your website to show up in a prime position on a results page.

Key marketing techniques and components

Web design – A well laid out website significantly improves user experience and shows that you take your online presence seriously. Site layout, structure, wording and the use of effective meta descriptions and meta titles all influence how well your web page is to be perceived by the public.

Local SEO – Local search engine optimisation works towards targeting customers in your immediate local service area, even if you are a national firm, as many people still search for businesses in their towns and cities. A great use of local SEO is to setup a ‘Google My Business’ account which you can use to upload your phone number and address. This data enables your business to show up on Google map services when people search for consulting firms near them for example.

Relevant content – Quality content goes a long way, and Google is known to prioritise websites that regularly upload new and relevant content.

Keyword research – Undertaking keyword research in order to create better quality content for your website is important. Researching what people in your area are searching for specifically will ensure your website and content pages have a higher chance of being visible on search engine results in hopes of increasing your market share.

Mobile friendly design – With most people owning a smart phone, potential customers are perhaps more likely to do an internet search on the go via their phone. Ensuring you have a responsive web design, meaning your website can adapt to whatever device is viewing it, is an important factor that Google also takes into account.

Link building – Link building is an important tool in off-page SEO. Having links on your and to your website improve your businesses visibility and can effectively place you higher on Google search rankings. Link building can be achieved through social media engagement and guest blogging to name a few.
