I think you’ll agree with me when I say digital marketing — and all its sub-categories, including SEO, social media, content creation, email, and more — is critical for any company’s growth in 2019.

With over four billion internet users globally, and more than 3.4 billion active social media users, it stands to reason digital marketing is vital for reaching a larger audience than you could through traditional methods alone.

Plus, digital marketing can help you better engage prospects, turn prospects into leads, and ultimately convert leads into loyal, delighted customers.

However, embarking on a digital marketing journey, particularly as a start-up or smaller company with limited online presence, can be both overwhelming and frustrating at times.

To help inspire your marketing team and kick-start your 2019 digital marketing strategy, we’ve cultivated a comprehensive list of digital marketing tips from marketers here at HubSpot. Keep reading to learn the 12 critical tips HubSpotters want you to know before you implement or refine your own digital strategy.

1. Know your customer.

2. Match your content to every stage of a buyer’s journey.

Alex Girard, an Associate Product Marketing Manager at HubSpot, says: “Personally, I think a big ‘Ah-ha’ moment for our customers when talking about ads strategy is when we tell them they need to match their content offer to a moment in the buyer’s journey. It doesn’t make sense to target an ad for a sales demo at someone in the awareness stage. It also doesn’t make sense to target an awareness stage offer, like a recommended blog post, at someone who is ready to buy.”

3. Don’t just write about your products or services.

Karla Cook, a Senior Manager of the HubSpot Blog Team, advises: “Don’t just write about your products or services on your blog. That can immediately alienate anyone who isn’t already close to purchasing. Instead, invest the time in learning about what your target audience is interested in, and develop content that aligns these interests with what your brand can offer. For example, if you’re selling coffee makers, you might create a blog series that looks at different ways to improve your morning routine.”

4. Focus on the long-term.

Jeff Vocell, a HubSpot Product Marketer, suggests — “Focus on delight, not short-sighted acquisition. I’m a marketer, and I understand the pressure to deliver leads to sales each month. But employing short-sighted tactics that generate some attention and may result in a momentary spike ultimately won’t set you, or your customers, up for success in the long-term. As marketers, we should focus on generating demand through helpful and customer-centric campaigns.”
