What to know, What to Do, Who to know, Where to Go to Market your Business in the New Millennium
Social Media is a general term for the sites that people spend time on for social interaction, which has become not just sites for social networking, but social marketing as well. The most popular social networks are Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn and Twitter. Making strides are Yelp and Foursquare, which allows customers to rate their experience of a business.
Businesses that are not taking advantage of the free advertising available when marketing with social media just don’t understand what they are missing. Facebook has become the new YellowPages; as of last year the statistics were 1 in every 14 people on the planet is on it. The social networks as a marketing tool has become the place to be seen and be known.
You may think, “I’m a local business, there’s no reason for me to go to the trouble.” Think again.
Even when looking for local businesses, people judge a business by their online presence.
If you don’t have even a basic page, potential customers may get the idea you are not up with the times and may not be the best resource for them, depending of course on your type of business.
What you are missing out on is the opportunity to brag about yourself, your business and your employees; even let your customers do it for you! Social media strategies will give customers a chance to get to know you and trust you before ever setting foot in the door.
I’ve compiled helpful information to get started, with resources and contacts to make it possible for you to create an online profile to build your business reputation. There are do it-yourself trainings if you are so inclined, or contact me to assist you in getting any or all of it done for you. I can I will work with you to get you caught up to speed.
Mobile marketing is a way for businesses to take advantage of the mobile revolution. Since there are more “Smart Phones” sold than actual computers, and texting surpassed talking in November 2010, the most valuable marketing real estate is the screen of a personal cell phone.
Knowing that may not make the difference-unless you have created sophisticated strategies to target consumers with your business or product in a way that they opt to receive your advertising and marketing offers.
I’ve assembled some of the best training available for those that want to do it themselves, or just contact me to begin integrating mobile marketing into what you are already doing.
