In this episode I share how and why you should split test your facebook Ads.

Split testing and A/B testing are used interchangeably in most context, although their definitions and meanings are quite different. Split testing can be defined as creating two completely different variations of the same landing page with the aim of finding out which versions performs better.A/B testing on the other hand, only one or two elements on a landing page are altered in the process. This usually happens after split testing has been carried out and the website or landing page owner is looking to optimise even further, increasing their chances of hitting their marketing KPI's.More information in the episode and on www.siftgroup.net Did you find the episode informative ?

A/B testing also sometimes referred to as split testing, although the latter entails more distinctions than the former, is the process of testing out the performance of marketing assets when one or more elements are altered.This can simply be giving your audience, website visitors e.t.c two different versions of the same landing page and observing the performance of the landing pages in terms of metrics such as click-through-rates, conversion rate, bounce rate, overall heat map e.t.cSimply altering the color of CTAs can impact the results you get from a landing page and marketers continuously carry out such tests to find out what works best for them and drop what doesn't.Split testing is providing your target group with two completely different versions of the same landing page. The only problem with this method is the ease of collecting data and information on which elements actually brought the most change to your marketing metrics.Links mentioned on this episode :SIFT GroupXCrazy EggYou can find me on twitter :@augustinekiamaDid you like the episode ?

Creating a good and compelling copy for your client or business can become a daunting task, especially if you are not skilled at luring attention from your audience through written content. Copywriting as explained in the previous episode is very different from content writing with the latter used for information purposes if not ranking purposes. Content can however be repurposed into creative copy that can help businesses convert their traffic either into leads, paying customers, newsletter subscribers e.t.c . This all depends on the strategic goals of the business.In this episode I list some of the tools that can aid you while creating a good copy and also explain why copywriting is not an easy task as it might seem at the start. I also go further in the episode to explain where you can get professional assistance  for your copywriting tasks if you are not confident with your level of expertise and also at a friendly cost.Send in your questions to augustine@siftgroup.net or find me on social media @iamkiamaaugustine.Subscribe to our weekly marketing digest on www.siftgroup.net for more info on this topic.Buzzsprout - Let's get your podcast launched!

SEM or Search Engine Marketing is similar to SEO and it's main purpose is to enhance traffic, generate leads and ultimately lead to conversion of leads. SEO is long term and has the purpose of generating organic traffic and cultivating a strong brand presence online. SEM is the paid version of SEO in that Ad Copies are created, targeted keywords bidded for and a budget allocated for the campaign. This will help bring short term traffic and can be really effective for businesses starting off and also existing businesses that already have a web presence for a longer period. Hubspot, SEMrush and Google Trend/Ad are examples of SEM platforms that you can use to get started.Head on to www.siftgroup.net and subscribe to our weekly marketing digest newsletter.Rate, review and share this episode to support the podcast.

Local SEO is the process of optimizing your website, business or content for local searches. Google uses Geo-location to provide users with much more targeted and relevant information based on where they are. If a user searches for Bakeries nearby, Google is able to use their location, check its library of bakeries and bakery websites indexed around that location and provide feedback to the user.If you have any question send me an email to augustine@siftgroup.net or find me on social media @iamkiamaaugustine.Until next time !
