While many of us would like to think that as long as we build a business, customers will come, it just isn’t a reality for most people. Opening and owning a business is a big job, and if you don’t do it right, you are going to fail. A big part of a successful business is the marketing for the product or service that your business offers. Without it, you aren’t going to reach the goals that you have in place in your business plan. Mecham Dicus & Company is here to share some marketing strategies that will encourage growth and productivity for your business.
Knowing Your Customer
As part of a successful business, you need to know who your products are going to most appeal to. If it helps, you can think of your customer base as one single person. Think about what type of person is going to be using the product, their likes, dislikes and even the amount of money most of them will make each year. When you have a clear picture of this, then you can make adjustments where needed in your product as well as the marketing of your product.
Importance of SEO in Marketing
For those of you that don’t know what SEO stands for it is ‘Search Engine Optimization.’ This is key to your success. More today than ever, customers are turning to the internet to find the products and services they are looking for. Hiring the SEO to help you build your website could be what makes or breaks you. There are many that claim they can help you build a website, but if they aren’t familiar with SEO, you will have wasted your money. You need someone that has dedicated thousands of hours to learning the system to help you achieve success.
Social Media Engagement & Reviews are Crucial
Social media can be a great platform to get word out about your business. However, building a following and social media platform takes time and patience. You need to be constantly engaged and corresponding with your customer base on social media to truly get the word out. Another avenue to market your business is through reviews. Many people will refer to reviews on a company before they will hire them. Consumers are turning to reviews to build trust with a company in today’s market. It is something that can’t be emphasized enough; you need to encourage your customers to leave you a review of how you handled the services that you offer.
