Below are 5 ways you can increase your revenue through different digital marketing techniques.
Firstly, identify your target audience. Once identified, you can begin to build a strategy.

– Frustrations – Career progression, politics.
– Interests – Anything tech-related. Golf and GAA.

– Gaining a better understanding of your ideal customer.
– Understanding what tone of voice to use.
– Increasing the effectiveness of your marketing.
– Targeting customers on the most relevant platforms/channels.
Once the persona is identified you can work on using a combination of the above elements to ensure you maximise your budget. Furthermore, you should increase your chance of sales.
