Whether or not you’re happy with your current sales figures, there is always a way to improve
them– especially since your business is now untapping its potential online.
The vastness and high speed of the online world means that consumers and clients far and
wide are now within your reach, and since the online world works quite differently from the real
world, there are new and innovative techniques to deal with marketing your business in the
Make Use of Social Media
Social Media is practically where everybody is nowadays. It is where both friends and
strangers interact, and it is where most of us find a mix of the personal and interpersonal, so
it isn’t a surprise that businesses want to dive into all the action.
Leveling up your business’ social media branding not only brings your voice and your reach
closer to your potential clients, but it also creates a platform for discussion. Customers can
talk about your business’ offerings, make suggestions, and ask questions. The best part is,
you and your business can take part in these discussions, too! The more active and
engaging these conversations are, the steadier your community will grow. In fact, if your
clients have enough good experiences with your brand and with the brand’s community,
they will market for you themselves.
Of course, part of being active on social media would mean having to divulge your product
or service’s most significant updates and promotions on your feed! Regular updates to show
that your business cares about its customers are what is key for that constant buzz of
activity, so make sure to post some new content every once in a while.
Finally, when you choose the path of social media, remember that your business is in a
space where people go to converse and share their thoughts. This is where creating
relatable content comes in. You want your products and/or services to be shared and talked
about, so you’re going to have to appeal to the people and the trends that surround them,
all while relating these things to your business. It’s definitely a challenge, but pays off.
Get Some Affiliates
Affiliates are mainly there to promote your business online. Of course, they gain a
percentage of each sale they give you, but depending on their reach and marketing style,
these affiliates can potentially give you a significant amount of traffic. Note that trying out
affiliate marketing is relatively cheaper than paying ads! And to top it all off, the traffic they
generate is already targeted to your specific niche, which means a higher rate of
Throw in Some Giveaways
Who doesn’t like free stuff? You can give coupon codes and/or freebies to potential
customers in exchange for their email address! This allows you to continue marketing to
them via email.
Promotions, competitions, and raffles are also good investments for promoting your
business! You can also use these as methods for your target audience to give you their
email addresses for future marketing opportunities!
Rack Up Those Positive Reviews
Posting positive reviews of your business offerings from past clients will help boost
confidence in your brand. Offering rewards for submitting written reviews or even video
testimonials will help encourage your community to help you achieve this goal.
Make Your Website Accessible to Mobile Phone Users
It is no surprise that mobile phones are the more accessible gadgets when it comes to
going online. In fact, 90% of internet access comes from a mobile device. A website’s
responsiveness, most of the time, affects a customer’s make-or-break decision of leaving
the site or continuing to browse (and, maybe, to eventually transact!). This is why savvy
business websites are geared to catering not only browser versions of their site, but also
mobile versions, for those on the go.
Start Your Own YouTube Channel
Videos have evolved from being an internet rarity to one of the most widely consumed
forms of media online. This is why creating video content will definitely give your business
that marketing edge you’re looking for. Your content doesn’t have to be grandiose or extremely professional, just as long as they are on-brand and they speak about your
products in a clear and concise manner, they will help a whole lot in pushing for those sales.
