BetaLabs 04: Webinar Promotion Insights

AARRRmor conducted a webinar on 1st August 2019 on a digital subject that’s useful for small business owners, start-up founders, entrepreneurs. The topic was ‘Google’s Essentials’ for small businesses, that covered the basics of how Google Analytics (GA), Google Search Console (GSC) and Google Adwords work and are interrelated. 

You may find it ironic for a digital media agency to be taking up workshops / training on digital tools. But the idea is to teach our clients to be self-sustained and knowledgeable. Growth works two ways! 

Aarrrmor’s Webinar on Google Essentials

As we move forward, let’s refresh our mind and quickly recall the Essential tools:

  • Google Analytics

GA is a tool with behavioural insights about the users visiting the website. Their journey across the site from the time of landing to exit and everything that happens in between that. Sessions, pageviews, time spent, page wise analytics, devices used, location, clicks on buttons, etc.

It helps you to understand the drivers behind the traffic to your site, which activities, campaigns / ads / content pieces are working better. Also, This will help you to understand which channels and campaigns are working for you.

  • Google Search Console (GSC)

GSC on the other hand is a tool with more of technical insights about the website’s health, and all things happening behind the scenes. Such as which are the links that are connected to your site, which keywords are ranking better for your site, more information on indexing etc. It also provides recommendations on improving them.

The best part about both GA and GSC is its agility and flexibility to merge with third party tools like SEMrush, for better synergy. 

  • Google Ads

Google Adwords and Keyword planner are like soul sisters, they are interdependent and work the magic. Simply put, Adwords is the platform for you to reach audiences that are looking for a product / piece of information like that of your business. The budgetary flexibilities are just brilliant. 

Webinar Promotion Plan

Now the work doesn’t end here. Our work was about getting the word out about the webinar to as many of our target audience as possible through organic reach for starters. 

Platform to conduct Webinar

In our checklist, we first finalised which platform to host the webinar on. After reviewing many websites we shortlisted Zoom and Hangouts as options and even debated the idea of going LIVE on YouTube or Facebook. However, we chose Zoom to host the webinar as it didn’t have a cap on the number of attendees and just Plug and Play. 

Webinar Listing

To promote the webinar organically, its best to start with a simple plan and a list for reachouts – most critical. And so we first listed the event on 2 sites i.e. Townscript and Eventshigh along with Google and Facebook event pages. 

PS: since August end, Townscript and Eventshigh have begun to charge a fee to host free listings. 

We learnt that, even a simple topic like ‘Webinar on Google Essentials’ is something that most new marketers get confused about. However, after attending the webinar, the attendees have learnt to set up their own Ad account, understand GA (Google Analytics) and operating Search Console. 

Our Conclusions

Qualitative feedback from them have motivated us to keep going with another batch of webinars.  The best part was, this webinar converted into a long term lead for us. Therefore to conclude, we would say organic isn’t dead yet. 

BetaLabs 02: Audience Insights on New Mothers living in India

The success of your ad strongly depends upon the choice of content and the fine-tuning of your audience segment on digital channels.

While you may have heard this piece of advice before, but not many utilise the audience targeting elements that Facebook gives.

We at AARRRMOR absolutely enjoy constructing the audience model to as much perfection as we can, it’s like cooking your best meal for your favourite guest.

We decided to do some market research, understanding the best way to reach prospective customers from different industries and launched this series of experiment with one of our clients.

Why Facebook?

Well for starters, Facebook and Google are the largest, most frequently used ad platforms out there and while their targeting options are strikingly different from each other, we chose Facebook for this as our client’s TG (target audience) is most interactive on the Facebook ad platforms. (Our next post will cover the difference in the 2 ad platforms for the same audience)

For this post, our client is a professional baby and maternity photographer based out of Delhi NCR, who wants to create awareness among the ‘primary’ and partially the ‘secondary’ decision makers for her business i.e. Expecting Mothers, Newly delivered mothers and Husbands of these 2 categories.

Details of Campaign

Location: Delhi NCR, Noida and around
Category: Expecting Mothers, New Mothers, Mothers with kids
Campaign Objective: Drive Leads
Ad objective: Chose ‘Traffic to website’. Wanted to choose ‘Lead Generation’

Ad Placement: Instagram feed and stories

Learning: The client’s website didn’t have a ‘Privacy Policy’ web-page due to which we couldn’t run the lead gen ads. While that page is constructed, we decided to test the waters for a traffic to website conversion.

Recipe to our audience targeting: Facebook gives you the option to choose from Behavior, Life Events, Interests. We strategically used all three.
