If you own a small business, you are no doubt aware of the importance of marketing. Since you are just starting out, no one knows who you are, what you offer, how you can help or enrich their lives, and how you stand out from the crowd. Marketing is your chance to make sure everyone knows you have a great product/service and are committed to always delivering impeccable customer service. When you think of marketing, though, your first thought might be advertising in the newspaper, passing out flyers to local businesses, and attending networking events at the local chamber of commerce. While none of these marketing ideas are wrong, some of them are far less effective than they once were (thanks to the advent of technology and the digital age), and can cost you money that would be better spent elsewhere.
So what is one of the best ways to market your small business? Social media.
Almost everyone is online these days and social media makes it so much easier and faster to spread the word about your business while also cutting down on expenses. Posting to social media is absolutely free, but there are necessary tools to use that will increase your social media presence, and this is where we come in. We monitor your social media accounts and help to generate more buzz about your business. Social media is so vital because by using it, you can connect with potential clients from all around the world. As well, with the right kind of viral social media, you can compete with others in your industry so easily, even bigger name businesses. Social media helps to generate excitement about your brand and the services you offer and best of all, social media makes it so much easier to interact with clients. Your customers will appreciate the chance to connect with you and will be more apt to do business with you.
At Strawberry Social, we work hard to ensure your success by making your business prolific in social media. The key to successful social media marketing is the frequency of posting, which is why we post on your social media accounts everyday so your clients see that you are active and engaged and they know they can interact with you. We make 1 or 2 social media posts to 4 social media networks (examples include: Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, etc.) and we save you money since you don’t need to worry about hiring a social media account manager. The cost per month is $75-$150, so you know how much to allot from your budget each month versus the unknown expense of an hourly employee. With Strawberry Social, we will increase your brand awareness exponentially thanks to the frequency of social media posting. Best of all, we also help to increase the amount of traffic to your website by posting links to your website and information about your company to your social media accounts several times per week.
