What is keyword in Digital Marketing and how is it important for SEO?

Reply Icon Reply

Keywords are known as ideas and/or topics that define what your content is about. In terms of SEO, the words and/or phrases that users enter into search engines, also called “search queries.” are known as keywords.

These are really important in terms of SEO because they fill the gap between what people are searching for and the content you are providing. As a content creator or a website owner, you will want the keywords on your page to be relevant to what people are searching. This enables more people to find your content among the thousands of search results available today.

What is the role of ORM in digital marketing?

Reply Icon Reply

ORM stands for Online Reputation Management and is known as the act of monitoring, addressing or mitigating SERPs or mentions in online media.

ORM is about monitoring and improving the way that your business is viewed online. You will need to look for what a viewer, a reporter, or partner will discover about your brand and your product/service when they perform a Google search. Before a potential customer lands of your website or picks up the phone to call you, what will they find online? Will they like the content available online?
About 90% of consumers read online reviews before visiting a business, so its’s safe to say that ORM is extremely important in order to bring in customers to your business or service.

A negative online presence can potentially impact the success of your company in a negative manner.

There are a number of books about Digital Marketing that you can read, but one of the best ones I’d suggest is Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook: How to Tell Your Story in a Noisy World by Gary Vaynerchuk.
The book has a rating of 4.6./5 and is a draft of social media marketing strategies that can be fruitful in this competitive market. The book is written by a New York Times bestselling author and a social media expert. It teaches you how to develop quality content and adapt to various social media platforms.
A few other books you can check out, especially as a beginner, would be Digital Marketing for Dummies by Ryan Deiss; Marketing 4.0: Moving from Traditional to Digital by Philip Kotler; and Click Millionaires: Work Less, Live More with an Internet Business You Love by Scott Fox.
