Let’s face it, in order for a business to be successful, people first need to know that it actually exists, and which services and products you actually provide. You could be the best company in the country, offering the best services, with the best members of staff, and the best value for money, but if people have no idea that you exist, how will they be able to take advantage of your superior business accolades? In order for a business to become successful, they need to market and advertise themselves, allowing people to know that they actually exist. If you wish to advertise your business, then content marketing strategies could be the answer to all of your concerns.
A FEW EXAMPLES OF CONTENT MARKETING STRATEGIES
Social networking – Let’s face it, social networking is now a huge part of everyday life, and things don’t look set to change anytime in the near future. As a result of this, businesses can now create business pages on certain sites, Facebook for example, in which people can ‘Like’ their page to stay up to date on any special offers or just general news. If you set up a Twitter page, you can share updates and special offers, as well as using hash tags in order to reach more of the general public. With Facebook, you can create free pages, but in order to reach a wider audience, you could pay for additional promotion. You have to spend money to make money and this strategy really works.
Create a professional website – In order to be truly successful, you’ll need to create a website as so many different aspects regarding business are conducted online these days. Not only do you need a website, you’ll need a professional, easy to navigate website. For that reason, hiring specialists and professionals is the route you should be taking. Don’t try to create one yourself because unless you’re extremely knowledgeable regarding computers, the end result will never be as good as your competition, and that’s exactly what you don’t want.
Press releases – Press releases are another great way of advertising and marketing, and they don’t cost a great deal either. If your business will be local, then a small ad in your local small press could prove to be very lucrative indeed. A lot of people read these presses and these ad pages, so just bear that in mind.
Email marketing – Email marketing is another great way of getting yourself out there and really reaching a much broader audience. Professionals have access to hundreds upon thousands of email addresses of clients and potential clients whom could benefit from the services you provide, and for a fee, will put together an ad and send it via email, nation, or even worldwide for that matter.
YouTube – We all know how popular YouTube is these days, and just how many people actually use it. For that reason, you can pay to have your ad featured on the site, or you can simply create your own YouTube channel, and feature ads, up to date news, product reviews, info, and demonstrations, and even video testimonials from some of your previous happy customers.
