Marketing with Paid Ads: Making the Most of Your Money with Duane Brown

Duane Brown is a paid traffic expert. In this episode of the Garlic Marketing Show, Brown recalls his experience building traffic for startups and SaaS companies. He argues for quality over quantity. As a marketer, you need to articulate your target client or customer and know how to find them whether that means using Facebook ads or original content on a blog.

Balance is Key

It’s all about balance.

Finding the right balance for paid traffic is key to a successful marketing plan. There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to getting more views for a business. Brown helps his clients experiment with different platforms to see what works best and what makes the most sense for their customer base.

The customer journey plays a large role in determining where to place marketing efforts. Think of what your customers value. What’s important to them? What are they looking for, if anything? Where do they go for information?

People want to be confident your business can help them. Your advertisement copy needs to be powerful to convince your demographic you’re the best choice for their problems. This takes time, and there is often a lot of trial and error.

Experience Matters

As an expert, Brown thinks more marketers need to consider the onboarding experience. Convincing customers to purchase a product or service involves changing the habits of those customers. In many cases, the onboarding experience can make or break the customer experience. Having a smooth checkout process, training tools, and additional resources will build a strong relationship with customers.

Marketing your business isn’t an exact science. As long as you spend time examining your ideal client and positioning yourself in the right place to get noticed by your ideal client, you’ll find success. Paid traffic doesn’t usually result in success overnight. You need to experiment with different marketing options to see what works best for your business.
