It’s no secret that the current economic slump affects us all. Still, some of your competitors are doing a lot better than you. Could it be that they’re doing something that you’re not? (Like business marketing Online, perhaps?) The most effective business marketing today takes place Online where most consumers are doing either their shopping or their research. How are you marketing your business on the Internet? Do you have a well-ranking Website? Is your business popular on search engines, in digital media, on social networks and with news agencies? Are you getting customers Online? What’s your excuse?! No time, too complicated, too costly?…
No matter what business you’re in, the solutions are out there. There are companies that handle every aspect of marketing; that can handle any one of them; or all of them; or design a custom marketing strategy especially for your business and implement it, gradually in a way that’s feasible for your budget. And yes, they do all the things you wish you could but either don’t have the knowledge or the time to do.
Business brand that can be developed in stages: Business brand is important for any business not just for such giants as Shell and Macy’s. Every single piece of your marketing material from business cards, invoices and advertisements to your Website and more should feature your logo and slogan and prominently so! You have those materials and use them anyway: why waste money on NOT getting all the bang for your buck? Get a business brand!
Business Website design from A to Z which may even include Website management with the guarantee that your Website will rank well on major search engines. (Chances are you have a Website already, how is it doing? Is it generating business for you? Can it be found on Yahoo or Google when you search for it WITHOUT the use of your business name? No? And who is managing your Website right now?)
Business public relations: What the heck is it? It is “only” the image of your business; not what you do, not what it is, but how it appears to consumers. Business image is an extremely important ingredient of success. Let’s face it: there are many businesses just like yours in your area. Why should people want do business with you as opposed to doing business with Joe? How are you different? How are you better? For what should you / your business be known or liked? Addressing those questions professionally is the job of business public relations.
Professional reputation management that consists of monitoring, management and even damage control. (Yes, there are companies that can do that without relying on the court system.) Bad reputation or even lack of sensitivity to your business’ reputation can damage it, or even destroy it. Do you have a plan in place? Do you know how many venues Online provide consumers with the opportunity to express their opinion about your work? Are you on top of things and managing the chatter?….. Are you ignoring it? Can you afford to ignore it? Be careful it may come back to haunt you! Look into professional reputation management!
Business publicity for minimalists or full blast. Have you ever wished that someone would write an article about your business? That the whole world would read it? There is an excellent chance that New York Times won’t come a knocking, but yes, there could – and should! – be articles about your business circulating Online. Good, informative articles may be even picked up and syndicated by Websites that will generate followers and customers for you. Similarly with press releases which spread the word about news and events relating to your business. Both could potentially be read by millions of people. Either one could become your competitive edge, not to mention a claim to fame. Should you look into business publicity? In a word: YES!
Finally, business marketing Online that generates customers and sales. Most of the marketing approaches described above boil down to visibility and distinction, business marketing Online creates and sustains active presence and participation of your business on search engines, in digital media, in social networks, and more.
The most significant dialog between business and consumers takes place on the Internet, today. If you didn’t claim a chunk of it for your business’ marketing Online and are still gambling on print advertising or direct mail, you’re missing all the prospective customers who are searching for the services / products you provide as we speak: Online. Blaming the economy? Blame is passive; try being pro-active: reevaluate your marketing. It may well be outdated.
