Why Does Your Small Business Need Digital Marketing Pt. 2

Last time we discussed what marketing was, and two reasons why your small business needs it. For a quick review, here are the points we hit on:

1. Boost Visibility - If you are a new business, you want to get your name out there. And
2. Be the Expert in Your Field - People trust businesses that know what they are talking about.

So now that brings us to: 

3. Your Competitors are Online - You might not have launched an online marketing campaign yet, but your competitors mostly likely have. The reason why online advertising doesn’t work for so many small businesses is that their websites do not engage or connect with potential customers online. It’s not a question of how pretty the website is designed, but rather, how effective it is in converting online visitors into customers. 

Online marketing is essential for small businesses today and is a cost-effective way to increase revenue, customers, and brand presence. Consumers are now online, and online marketing is only growing more important.

4. Build Trust - You should be leveraging your marketing to create and sustain more brand trust. A customer is going to be much more likely to purchase from you if they trust you.

If you aren’t an expert in marketing, you may find a lot of this information daunting. Luckily, everyone in business has likely done some marketing previously. If you have invested in a branded wrap for your company vehicle, that’s marketing. If you already have a website for your business, you’ve already invested in marketing, and you probably know that marketing works!

Why Does Your Small Business Need Digital Marketing? Pt. 1

Once upon a time, you had a vision. A vision of owning your own business. You worked on that vision, and put in the time and sweat to make it a reality. Some people have noticed and they like what you do. Maybe you even have some regular repeat customers. So far, things seem to be going pretty well. Now what? Now is the time to put a focus on marketing your business. Ok, but why? Let's break it down into basics. What is marketing?

Writing a Quality Social Media Post

Social media posts are  everywhere.  You can see social media posts getting used on the television, in print ads, and even in other social media posts. And to be honest, we are on social media all the time, so writing engaging content is easy, right? Not quite. What might be popular with your friends and family, might not translate well with the wider audience of your clients. So for this blog post, we are going to give you some insight into how we train our writing staff to write quality social media posts. First, you need to consider which platform you are on. Writing for Facebook is going to be very different from how you write for Twitter or Instagram. Facebook has the widest audience, so you need to try to appeal in the broadest way. Twitter users tend to enjoy more fun content from businesses, and 240 characters requires brevity. Instagram is a picture platform, so you have to make your picture say the most before people will even take a look at your text. Second, we believe ther
