My 6 Natural Marketing Strategies

In this part, I’ll explain each of the 7 organic marketing strategies I mentioned and give you an example of each so you can see how they can help your business grow.

1. SEO

SEO is the process of making sure that the pages and blog posts on your website rank well for the keywords that your ideal customer searches for on Google and other search engines.

For example, let’s say you have an online store where you sell clothes for babies. Your baby clothes are made of organic materials, are made to order, come from the US, and are stylish.

Using SEO, you’d want to rank for terms like: 

  • “Organic baby clothing”
  • “Baby clothes made in the US”
  • “Fashionable baby clothing”

By spending money on SEO, you can improve your website, pages, and material so that you show up on the first page of search results. 

This will get people to visit your website, where you can get them to sign up for your email list or buy something.

2. Partnerships

Partnerships are a type of marketing strategy where you team up with other companies in your field. You don’t compete with each other, but you both target the same ideal customer profile (ICP).

For example, one of my companies, AccountsBalance, is a monthly bookkeeping service for agencies, service providers, and SAAS businesses.

We have a Partner Program where we work with hundreds of other digital service providers, softwares, tools, and leaders.

First, we add each other to our Partner pages and trade backlinks. Then, we feature each other in our newsletters to raise brand recognition and generate leads. Finally, we find other ways to send leads both ways every three months.

Relationship building leads to more people knowing about your brand, visiting your website, giving you recommendations, leads, and customers.

3. Social media

Yes, we all know what social media is, but there’s a specific way to use it for free marketing that can bring a lot of interested people to your business.

I think you should look at social media as a place where you can become a subject matter expert (SME), build a following, and turn fans into paying customers.  

My dream customer uses LinkedIn. I earn their trust by posting every day and showing them the SEO and marketing techniques that are working best for me.

Social media is a great place to find your dream customer, but it takes time, consistency, a good plan, and dedication. making great profiles on social media is just one more way to help your business grow and become the successful venture it should be.

4. Content marketing

Content marketing is the practice of making high-quality content that talks directly to your ideal customer and gets them to sign up for your email list so you can keep “talking” to them. 

Some examples of content marketing: 

  • Infographics
  • Ebooks
  • Checklists
  • White papers
  • Webinars
  • Free trainings

Content marketing helps “pull” your ideal customer into your business so they know you’re a choice when they’re looking for solutions to their problems.

5. CRO

CRO stands for conversion rate optimization.

CRO refers to the process of making your website and all of its pages as effective as possible at turning website visitors into email subscribers or paying clients.

Let’s look at a specific case. You figure out the first five organic marketing platforms and start sending thousands of people to your website every month. First of all, good job on that! But does it matter if none of those people sign up for your email list or buy something?

CRO comes in at this point. You look at the style, content, and performance of each page on your website to figure out how to get more visitors to sign up for your newsletter or buy something.

6. Email marketing

Email marketing is the final but most important step. Using email marketing, you may create a list of subscribers that are interested in your company, you, and the goods and services you provide. A newsletter and automated email campaigns are then used to routinely communicate with those folks in order to turn them into paying clients.

Although it’s nice to have people subscribe to your email list or newsletter, it’s useless if you don’t keep in touch with them. You need to engage them in conversation, get to know them better, respond to their inquiries, and establish trust through email marketing.

For instance, one of my businesses, Outsource School, focuses on instructing business owners on how to hire and expand their operations using freelancers and virtual assistants from the Philippines. We publish a weekly email that offers 5,000+ potential clients free outsourcing guidance and tactics. Each week, we gain more of their trust, and eventually many of them join.
