What are the pre-scoped digital marketing solutions supported by the grant?
The PSG Digital Marketing Grant supports a range of digital marketing solutions that can help you reach and engage your target audience online. Some of the solutions include:
Search Engine Optimization (SEO):
SEO is the process of improving your website’s ranking and visibility on search engines like Google and Bing. SEO can help you drive more organic traffic to your website, generate more leads and conversions, and build your brand authority and credibility.
Search Engine Marketing (SEM):
SEM is the process of using paid ads to promote your website on search engines. SEM can help you increase your exposure, target specific keywords and audiences, and measure your results and ROI.
Social Media Marketing (SMM):
SMM is the process of using social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc. to connect with your customers and prospects. SMM can help you increase your brand awareness, build trust and loyalty, and encourage word-of-mouth referrals.
Digital Asset Creation:
Digital assets are any online content that can showcase your products or services, such as videos, images, infographics, ebooks, etc. Digital assets can help you capture attention, educate and inform your audience, and persuade them to take action.
Depending on your business needs and goals, you can choose one or more of these solutions to enhance your digital marketing strategy. These solutions are suitable for SMEs from various industries such as food, engineering, logistics, retail, e-commerce, etc.
