Using directional signs to your CTA is also a good practice. You can use words like “free”, “download now”, “buy”, etc navigate to this web-site. to attract the visitors as these words are more likely to get clicked. The CTA button should be bright, big and should stand out of the entire page.

Powerful Guidelines to Generate Massive In-App Revenue

Building a potential app is not enough, you need to review the monetization strategy. If the app is providing equivalent free options and not more than that then many of your clients will find any other substitute in the App Store weight loss supplements. Because of this, depending on advertising for revenue is a convenient option. But these ads can be unwanted and distract for users.

So, how will you achieve the steady stream of earnings without sacrificing the user experience? Below is the concise introduction to in-app advertising basics which will help you in finding the best ad monetization strategy.

FOCUS ON TARGET AUDIENCE

In-app advertising provides a better solution to perfectly target the users and suggest them to interact with the brands. It provides a close connection with the user on a personal level. Users expect a high level of personalisation so keep in mind your customer’s expectation before executing an ad. Both the publisher and the advertiser could suffer because of not targeting the correct audience with the quality ads.

CONTENT QUALITY

It’s very important for both, advertisers and publishers, to understand that in-app ads are an important part of the total user experience. So, you must confirm that your content doesn’t drive the user away. Ads should be pleasing, valuable, enjoyable, approaching their needs and interests. To attain this, you need to understand that what the target audience would like to see for the next 30 seconds. Improvement in overall user experience will result in higher engagement and conversion rates.

PICK THE RIGHT AD FORMAT

Technical potentials of an in-app ad are changing as the mobiles are evolving. It is very necessary to consider the right format for your targeted audience to produce a high ROI. Below are the 8 common types of ads:

Standard Banner Ads

These ads are clean and sharp, compelling the clients to click on them. It is a very popular ad format because it is very noticeable, placed either at the bottom or the top of the screen. It is the safest and simplest way to forward the brand name to many people without annoying them.

Interstitial Ads

These ads are the full-screen ads that can take the complete screen of the users. They are mostly positioned either when the app is loading or while closing the app. Its disadvantage is that it can be intrusive to the user as it covers the full screen.

Notification Ads

These are designed to pop up in the mobile’s status bar to make users well informed of the ad. However, it can be sometimes very annoying and can damage the reputation of your app.

Native ads

These are integrated within the apps. These don’t look like ads at first glance, making them easily acquired by the audience.

Hyper-Local Targeted Ads

Many of the apps ask for the permission to access client’s location after downloading the app. These use GPS data of smartphones to geographically locate the audience for delivering relevant ads.

Video ads

These type of ads have the high level of engagement and are very simple. They need a good budget and gives high conversion rate when the content is related and captivating. There are 3 types of video ads – Pre-Roll, Mid-Roll, and End-Roll. Pre-roll ad arrives before the video has begun, Mid-roll in the middle of the video and End-Roll after the video.

FREQUENCY AND PLACEMENT

Get your user’s attention without being too annoying. Along with the placement, you also need to focus on the frequency of the ads. If you wait for a long time, then your conversion rate will suffer and if you execute them in a short period of time, then you can frustrate them and they will end up closing the app.

There are many reasons to uninstall your app, but the poor user experience is one of the most common reason. Your proper ad monetization strategy can result in boosting high revenue and giving customer satisfaction.

Well, we all know the obvious winner. Let’s take another situation: There are 2 things, one is a pop ad (outbound) and other is a funny infographic (inbound) that you choose to look at. Which is more natural and likely to engage? Again the Inbound.

SEO

PPC

ppc-optimization

Although PPC is paid, but still considered as inbound because it is shown on the top of SERPs for relevant customer queries. You don’t have to find the clients as they will find you according to their requirements. It gives a big opportunity to grow the online business with more profit.

CONTENT MARKETING

re-content

After getting customers from PPC and SEO, you need to provide good content to them.  Using fresh and useful content for stopping them on your site is a critical factor. Your content should address their queries and hence reduce the bounce rate. The more educational content you create, the more customers will remain engaged in the sales process.

You can ensure that the content reaches to the targeted audience by Social Media. Your clients can be on multiple channels including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and many more.

Guest Blogging is ideal for getting strong backlinks and bigger audience at the same time. It will not only drive the traffic to your site but will also increase the revenue. However, not all guest posts yield good results. You should understand that how to effectively produce the right content.

There are thousands of inbound techniques to grow your business, but these 5 are powerful for a start. Pick one, try and see the impact it makes on your business.

PPC + SEO = Hike in ROI

PPC + SEO = Hike in ROI

We are seeing a number of new update in algorithms that are affecting the SERPs. Google continues to improve how content is being shown to the customers through organic and paid listings. Due to which, SEOs are trying to experiment different strategies to get more ROI.

Most of us use SEO and PPC with completely different strategies. Although they are 2 different things, there are different ways in which both can complement each other. We can consider them as two faces of the same coin i.e. Search. There are ways by which we can achieve a higher ROI by integrating PPC and SEO.

Consider the following strategies that make a coordinated SEO and PPC strategy more powerful than the sum of its parts:

Integrating the Goals and Metrics of Both

By using the data of both the teams, the behaviour of the customers can be understood more accurately. Combining the PPC data with organic metrics will give deep insights of how the customers are using the digital properties and how they behave once they leave your site.

Production increment

It doesn’t make any sense in keeping both of them apart as both can benefit each other. Keeping them apart will isolate the critical information and will reduce the productivity level of even the most powerful online campaign.

Increase efficiency of campaigns by combining keywords

Keywords are the base of every SEO or PPC campaign. Both the teams do keyword research to find the keywords that best align with the target audience’s behaviour. Consumers use long tailed keywords more than the single term while searching. Combining the result will allow both the teams to choose the perfect keywords.

Matching Ad Copy with the headline of the Landing Page

When a visitor click on the listings (it can be PPC or SEO), he expects to reach on a page that closely matches the listing heading otherwise, the customer will bounce. This procedure should be followed till the conversion rate. Now the issue is that the PPC team spends too much on perfecting the ads, but don’t have much control over the landing page’s attribute. On the other side, SEO team has full control over editing the client’s website. So perfect ads by PPC and matching heading and content with SEO can result in desired benefits.

Expensive PPC to cost effective SEO

In many industries, targeting some keywords in PPC is not cost effective. It will be a good strategy in which we can optimize the costly PPC keywords by SEO and using the PPC for cost effective keywords. This will help the PPC team in redistributing the budget elsewhere. This will help in getting the organic and paid listings on the first page.

Real-time Experiments

The delay between the optimization and impact is the biggest issue in SEO. While in the case of PPC, immediate results i.e. visibility, clicks and conversion can be seen. So this beauty of PPC can be use to experiment some keywords and use them in SEO after watching the results.

The above factors confirm that with the right SEO team, you can improve ROI in almost every PPC campaign.
