By Estes Media on June, 23 2021

Understanding the customer value journey, identifying your audience, and addressing their needs are the foundations of any legitimate digital marketing campaign. But wide-ranging tasks such as those take time, patience, analysis, and a suite of helpful online digital marketing tools.

Answering customers’ questions is a foundational marketing mantra at Estes Media. To thoughtfully do so, we solicit the help of a suite of tools that allow us to gain more granular insights into our clients’ competitive landscape, no matter what industries they’re in.

Below, we’ll take you through some tools within our digital marketing arsenal and layout the functionalities of various platforms as well as the unique insights they provide into the customer value journey.

1) Google Trends

Most agencies use Google Trends to a point, but they fail to recognize the full scope of what it can do. While the most novice of SEO experts can sit tinkering with Google Trends and use it to find keywords and search terms, Estes Media digs deeper by pairing its insights with other platforms like ATP, SEMRush, and more.

By analyzing past data on Google Trends, apt users of this tool can not only identify trends but also PREDICT them and understand how to best apply ad spend based on these trends. Furthermore, we look at seasonal trends within your region, competitor habits, and your own historical traffic and customer acquisitions.

But more importantly, if performed strategically (whether for SEO or PPC), this tool can give you loads of insights into how your target audience is thinking, acting, and buying.

3) Facebook

Users on Facebook are constantly drowning in irrelevant, uninteresting, and superficial information. Most marketing agencies haven’t quite grasped the art of providing meaningful content that grabs the attention of the right audience—the audience that BUYS!

Using a broader scope of marketing psychology, Estes Media takes a longer look at what your target audience actually wants to see, and how that relates to your product/service. 

This means better brand awareness, higher customer engagement, and, of course, more repeat business. Your presence on Facebook can be revamped in ways you never imagined, especially if you leave it in the hands of our experts.

It’s gradually evolved to fulfill the needs of the modern digital marketer in ways most professionals haven’t tapped into. Sadly, most digital marketers don’t use it to its full potential. But Estes Media has harnessed the value of this tool and managed to enjoy the following functionalities:

7) Just Plain Google

Google Search itself is underutilized by business owners as well as by the digital marketing agencies they trust with their exposure. But Google is a powerful tool for understanding the search criteria they look for.
