The Change of Marketing
When growing or starting a business, social and business marketing are very important aspects and some of the first things to consider. One of the great things about living in Texas is the independent and entrepreneurial spirit. Many people have desires to start their own business. Many more are interested in considering starting a business, but might not know where to start. It used to be more straightforward to start a business. A person would create a business, make a business plan, set up a place of business, put up a sign and put an ad in the phone book. The marketing plan for a lot of small businesses consisted of some business cards, the sign in front of the building and that ad in the phonebook. When was the last time you even saw a phonebook? In today’s digital age, that approach no longer works.
Today’s Digital Marketing
In fact very few of those traditional steps are applicable. Sure, a defined business plan is essential. However, that is the only part of starting or marketing a business today that is still necessary. Starting and marketing a business today takes a much different approach. Social media and Internet business marketing can be intimidating to many people. Yet, they use social media and the Internet everyday. Society makes great use of online tools and the information at our fingertips. We love to update our statuses and check on others. Selfies are posted at a dizzying pace and somehow Internet marketing seems too much for some.
The idea is the same for personal and business social media use, we want to stand out. Marketing a business utilizing social media and the internet requires a solid plan and approach that is more than posting what we ate for dinner. Engagement and interaction with customers is critically important. Having potential customers and clients able to find your business amid the myriad of other businesses takes guidance from experts who know how to make a business stand out. But it is not beyond the realm of human understanding. The question is not “if” but “how” to utilize great online and social business marketing.
One of the first things a business plan should address is how the business wants to be branded. How will the business look and feel to customers and potential clients? Once that is clear, then an effective campaign to make the business stand out online can be implemented. There is a saying in business marketing that states, “everything works, nothing doesn’t”. Businesses need to utilize the many different aspects of marketing and tools available. One of the best decisions a business can make is getting the right team of vendors to do what they do best to allow the business to do what it does best.
