Marketing can seem like a minefield especially when you are kickstarting a new business and don’t really know where to go or what things work anymore. The marketing world changes quickly so there are always some new ways to reach a bigger audience.
Here are some ways you can get the word out. Use these different marketing strategies to grow your business and increase the income you get from it.
Bloggers and Influencers
These guys are fairly new to the marketing world but have certainly taken the world by storm, some of the bigger influencers with millions of followers can sell out a product with their recommendations which make them a valuable asset to businesses. Unfortunately, when they are that big they come with some big costs at using them to sell a product.
However, micro-influencers can be just as effective and even more so on a local scale. There are localized focused bloggers and influencers all over the world. By choosing a few of them to gift an item or pay a smaller fee you can still get out to a wider audience and reach new people you may never have before and can look to generate sales and engagement on your business pages.
These are not a new or experimental way of marketing but something that has been used for over 30 years and is still so successful so it is something to consider.
It is more cost-efficient than individually mailed cards and letters and they can reach target audiences before peak buying seasons so you can be prepared for upcoming holidays and sales that you are planning.
They can help you get out to the right audience and send the right message through the right channel which can have your call-to-action delivered through a proven marketing solution. Some advertisers even see a 10x return on what they spend.
Social Media Marketing
Social Media Marketing is something not all businesses use but it is something that can help a business grow. It is about showing off your brand and your company goals and messages which can let your audience learn more about you and in turn by being engaged can result in sales and new clients.
It is a way to get feedback from potential buyers without being too pushy and making it seem natural. If you use Instagram stories there are so many ways for you to interact with your audience like asking questions, letting them ask you questions, polls and so much more.
People can also share your images and products which means you will be able to get out to people just by sharing some great-looking pictures of what you do.
So there are three simple ways to look to grow your business and sales through different marketing solutions. It is a great way to get started when you are new to the marketing side of things and it all seems a bit of a minefield. All the best to you.
