Do you know these ads running before and during a video on YouTube? That can be YOUR video. Advertising costs are relatively cheap and it supports your ROI in your video. You have to set up as a Video Campaign within the Google Ads tool.

Get blogging ideas from your FAQ

Go to the person(s) in your organization that deals with client questions. Ask them to write down 5-10 frequently asked questions. All of a sudden, you have:
– Titles for blog articles (and voice-search-proof)
– A (refreshed) list for the FAQ page on your website (that you can link internally to your blog articles)
– A ton of ideas for social media posts (because your followers are your clients and have these same exact questions!)

Get even more blogging ideas via Google Search Console

Go to your Google Search Console and click Performance. Go through the Query list and find the ones that generate a good number of impressions, but that you don’t have a specific article for. Write an article around that topic and a chance to dominate that key phrase!

Once people Liked your post, you can invite them to follow your page. Super easy, free, and highly effective.

Have a Social Media boost strategy

Only post something if you think it’s worthy of boosting. And then boost it! Boost with purpose, such as among followers (for branding, customer retention), people in your local area (find new followers, local pride), or wider criteria with specific locations and interests (peak interest, find new followers). you don’t have to spend big budgets per post, €10 per post will already get you a long way.
