Digital marketing is here to stay. As a business, you must get in front of new people every day and this provides an affordable way to do it. Speaking to new people (in whatever format) EVERY DAY is the only way to grow and sustain your operation. Most businesses fail because they were unable to get in front of enough people, to buy enough of their products or services, for the right price, fast enough. They simply run out of money. There is no shortage of customers in the marketplace. You just have to target them correctly and have a product or service they want to buy.
Word of Mouth or Digital Marketing?
How do customers find out about you? Many business owners believe word-of-mouth is the reason why their business has survived. That’s great. However, in this day and age, you absolutely must engage in digital marketing! Now think about this–Social Media is word-of-mouth on steroids! It gets you in front of people who already know, like, and trust you as well as their networks, and even beyond. Through a simple share of a social media post or shout out from an influencer, your business could be transformed from losing to winning in less than 30 days.
Digital marketing is a game changer for small businesses because it has enabled you to access customers just as larger companies. Social media has most certainly leveled the playing field. Any business owner can advertise for as little as $5 a day, targeted to thousands of your exact niche of customers, on platforms like Facebook. This was impossible before the invention of the internet, social media, and digital marketing. Now that we all have full access to these tools, there are no reasonable excuses for why you can’t get in front of new people every day. It’s easier than it has ever been and if you are not taking advantage of it, you are choosing to ignore major opportunities for your business to grow and thrive in this new economy we live in.
The marketplace is noisy, crowded, and people are unaware that you (your business) exist(s). Every day, a new shiny “object” is popping up taking the attention away from you. To remain relevant, you must develop innovative marketing tactics to regularly engage with your customers as well as take full advantage of digital marketing tools and techniques that are available to you. Moving into the future, it will be THE determining factor in whether companies die, survive, or thrive.
