4 Ways to Boost Your Marketing Results
Everyone wants to boost sales & revenue, however the questions is often - HOW?
Below are 4 ways to boost your Marketing efforts to grow your Small Business
1. Test your campaigns before investing too much time & effort
This is a fundamental step I see so many people skipping. This can be done a variety of ways, however a simple strategy is through testing 2 groups with variables. Another way to do this is to roll out at Beta test to a small audience. When we do this, we usually run the Beta test twice before investing money into the big project.
The testing will allow you to learn aspects about your target audience that you may have never previously considered. It'll allow you to tailor your offering and price accordingly, leading to a healthier, stronger Marketing Strategy.
2. Social Media
Find the platform that works best for you and your business, then create a strategy to support your activities and objectives.
Posting regularly at peak times, engaging with your audience and storytelling will allow you to connect and share.
Remember to include Call-to-Action throughout your content, as it's important to lead your audience to a variety of pockets within your business.
3. Blog or Podcast
Blogging or Podcasting is essential. It allows you to create a 3D approach of what you're doing, helps with SEO, provides platforms for others to collaborate with and creates additional traffic.
What does your audience need to know from you - what do they need to learn?
The content you produce should answer the questions your audience is searching to find someone like you!
4. DIY SEO
It's important to understand how SEO works. It's actually quite simple and an extremely important element in having search engines find you.
Firstly you need to understand the keywords that your audience is searching to find someone like you.
