Online Marketing

Online marketing encompasses all marketing strategies which can be applied via the internet. These start with user-tailored emails and extend to strategies affecting a website, such as search engines optimisation. Online marketing is in a state of constant development with the latest new trends. Social networks and affiliate marketing are just as much part of the repertoire as native advertising or content marketing. Apart from e-commerce topics, the focus of our blog lies on current developments in the area of online marketing.

    Software development without agile methods is like jogging without a fitness tracker: old-fashioned. It’s no different in app development. But it’s not the companies that are able to react quickly to market changes thanks to agile actions, but users who influence the app while it is being developed. Through early user feedback, developers can customise the app to taste, so that the target audience is as satisfied as possible.

    SEO in the Mobile Era: 7 Tips for Google’s Mobile First Index [Updated white paper]

    Posted on 7. September 2018 by .

    “Not without my smartphone” – This is how daily life in the age of mobile Internet is. We want to be online any time, anywhere. Over half of Germans now surf the web on the go – 30 per cent even daily. Mobile Internet consumption should continue to increase over the next few years. Users aren’t the only ones putting pressure on companies to optimise for mobile – Google is too.

    Other mobile devices, like smartwatches and voice assistants, have changed user behaviour. Voice search, in particular, has been one of the biggest changes. By 2020, 50% of all Google searches should be based on voice input. It’s faster to say something than type with a keyboard, and users will still be able to find the information, the inspiration, or the products they want.

    Google, we’re not getting any younger! Two decades have passed since the founding of the Internet giant. In our series »20 Years of Google«, we have looked at the history of the company in recent weeks. The »G« of »GAFA«, like others, started in the garage and in two decades changed the face of the Internet.

    And end to their longstanding success probably won’t happen anytime soon, as Google, despite setbacks, manages to succeed overall.


    20 years of Google: The pocket-sized revolution

    Six or seven years ago, it was above all the older generations who were astonished by people staring at small electronic devices in subways, streets, and cafés. What are they doing? And why aren’t they reading newspapers or books? Just moving their thumbs over a screen almost to a rhythm.

    The smartphone is probably one of the most important inventions of the 21st century for consumers… and unsurprisingly, Google is one of the drivers of this pocket-sized revolution. So, in the fifth article in the 20 years of Google series, we’ll explore the question of how a search engine company could develop software called Android, which millions of people use every day.

    Instagram, Facebook and Twitter are probably the best-known social networks in the Western Hemisphere. Despite a data scandal, Facebook still has 2.34 billion active users. Social media is, therefore, a phenomenon that affects the current state of affairs on the Internet.

    That’s what also Google thought way back in the year 2010: With Google+ and Google Wave, the company tried to gain momentum in the social media area. In hindsight… These were failures. The fourth article in the Handelskraft series »20 years of Google« is taking a look at a dark time in their history. The attempt to build their own social network.

    The goals of content marketing are, on one hand, customer acquisition and retention, on the other hand, the better positioning of the brand. Unlike traditional marketing methods, such as display ads, content marketing doesn’t necessarily focus on a company’s products. Rather, it is about providing relevant target groups with informative and useful content in order to convince them to pay attention to and buy from your own company and brand. It should, therefore, become established as an integral part of every marketing strategy for every company.


    20 years of Google: Discovery of the world

    Posted on 28. August 2018 by .

    1492: A troop of sailors under Christopher Columbus reaches an island in the Bahamas and unknowingly discover a new continent. Unintentionally, because they really wanted to find a sea route to India – they had simply lost their way. An error that eventually leads to the colonisation of America and introduces an epochal change.

    But also a mistake that is difficult to repeat today. Because »digital maps« have become powerful tools. The third article in the series »20 Years of Google« therefore raises the question of how we move through the world at the beginning of the 21st century thanks to Google Maps.

    It was not so long ago when various scandals came to light about data abuse and fake news on Facebook. The company was taking heavy losses on the stock market and seemed to have lost credibility and charm to many users, stakeholders, and marketers.

    But that hasn’t stopped the largest social network: Instagram’s attractiveness keeps growing, the company announced in the same breath with the bad stock market news. Especially among younger generations, the photo network is more popular than ever. Even Facebook itself wants to collect bonus points and drive innovation forward. The focus is on augmented reality.

    This technology is also gaining in importance beyond the gaming industry. In fact, some companies are already focusing on this and are developing exciting, everyday use cases. The main focus is to make life easier in different circumstances (at work, when purchasing complex products, or building large machines).

    Facebook wants advertisers to benefit from the potential of this cutting-edge technology even on the biggest social network.


    20 years of Google: SEO forever and ever?

    At the beginning of the 2000s, tens of billions of websites were already indexed by the Google search engine. What sounds good to curious users at first glance was like finding a needle in a haystack when looking for a particular site. Larry Page and Sergey Brin were therefore not the first search engine operators who came up with the idea that they’d have to »rate« websites according to their content. With innumerable evaluation factors – some secret, some public – Google managed to take on an undisputed pioneering role.

    This article in the “20 Years of Google” series is therefore concerned with the way we find the right website today, the consequences of writing on websites, and the SEO optimisation of today will still exist in the future.
