If you’re a small business, it’s time to smart-up on your social media! Find out how you can incorporate quick, fun and free social media platforms into your business model to REACH your target audience, EXPAND to new customers and SELL your product.
Remember, social media is a low-cost marketing tool! Low cost is Web Marketing Therapy’s favorite use of the “F” word (F meaning, all this for FREE!):
To make social media work for your business you need to be aware of your own unique VOICE – otherwise you will get lost in the multitude of businesses already making use of these web platforms. Your own VOICE will encompass why you’re in business – stay true to your passion and products and make use of social media to portray your VALUE and get that REACH.
Now, how to do this?
1) Communicate to your audience to build healthy and wholesome relationships
2) Collaborate – Don’t rely on the text and small print any longer to get your message across – share by showing and telling! (Who didn’t enjoy Show & Tell in school, really.)
3) Get in on the FUN– connect with your consumers in a fun and easy way
4) Get an “Interactive Rolodex” from social media databases
All this holistic relationship building helps you sell sell sell!
To find out the specifics of HOW to get the social media ball rolling, check out The Marketing Therapist’s “Social Media Marketing for Small Businesses” eBook. (it is the F word – FREE. No strings either, we believe that sharing is caring!)
