Using the Internet is for most of us, as important and ingrained in our day-to-day lives as much as food and water.
Social media has grown into more than just keeping in touch with friends and family. It’s for many, a go-to for advice, recommendations for traders or businesses and a host which showcases our lives and livelihoods.
Marketing a business – of any size online, isn’t something new. Yet, for many having an online presence can be a daunting task and can be a mind-muddle to understand. However, it’s okay to feel that way!
Social or digital marketing, is time consuming, does require a plan and lots of thought into how you reach people – and how you can stand out amongst the chorus of others. After all, there is a lot of noise out there.
So, here’s why profiling your business online is important:
- It’s the quickest and easiest way to tell others about your new product, service or news. A Tweet or Facebook post share, can go rival within minutes and this message is spread around the world faster than traditional TV or news media
- There are millions of people who use social media – so you know where your customers hang out and tell each other about good stuff they’ve seen. Being there too means you can become part of that conversation.
- There is a huge choice of social media platforms – you don’t have to be on all of them. Use the ones you like, or the ones where most of your customers or the customers you want to attract hang out.
