THE THOUGHTFUL ENTREPRENEUR PODCAST
In this episode of The Thoughtful Entrepreneur, your host Josh Elledge speaks with Ameet Khabra, Founder of Hope Skip Media.
Ameet talks about her expertise in paid traffic. As someone with immense experience in the industry, she says paid traffic today is very different from the past: more expensive, more demanding, more competition and less control. Along with that, you have to try out new features and decide what's best if you were to reach a wider audience. Her advice is to work with agencies that have seen them all – know and understand which tools and platforms work best for their business.
In terms of paid traffic for the B2B space, Ameet's advice to entrepreneurs: to consider the buyer's journey over 100 days (3 months ahead) to really get a good picture of their funnel. She says understanding where their audience is in their buying cycle and giving them what they want to hear is the crucial part of B2B advertising. She also discusses the importance of incorporating marketing psychology into copywriting, engaging and tracking the target audience, client collaboration, and the best SEO and PPC techniques.
Key Points from the Episode:
- Paid Traffic Today vs Yesterday
- Dangers of Working with Someone without Prior Knowledge and Experience in Paid Traffic
- Paid Traffic in B2B Space
