If you own a small business, you are aware of how challenging marketing can be. You need to stand out from the rest and at the same time bring more attention to your business.  Here are five marketing strategies for you and most of these will be viable for your unique small business.

But we should know that there are NO SECRET magical marketing strategies. The thumb rule is to try the relevant ones and then decide which one works for your business.

Connecting the value of your company to the appropriate consumer base is the aim of marketing. It’s a straightforward idea, yet there are countless variations of it. Try to answer these questions:

  • What demographics or racial and ethnic groups make up your clientele?
  • What are their geographic locations?
  • What websites do they frequently visit?
  • How do they search for goods in your market?
  • When making decisions about your product, whom do they consult?

Fortunately, Facebook Ads, SEO, conference networking, etc. will help you understand your consumer segment.

Social Media Marketing

Social media marketing

Facebook advertising is used by more than two million small to medium-sized enterprises; it is a cheap and efficient way to market to almost any demographic. The platform also offers a wide range of ad formats, such as image, video, and carousel ads, to help businesses create engaging content. Additionally, businesses can define a marketing budget and bid for ad placements, allowing them to control their advertising costs. To get started with Facebook ads, businesses can create an account on the Facebook Business Manager and set up their first campaign.

Google My Business

A free product provided by Google called Google My Business (GMB) enables companies to control their online visibility across Google, including Search and Maps. Businesses may make it easier for customers to discover them, learn about their business hours, and get a sense of what they have to offer by confirming and updating their business information. With GMB, companies can:

  • Create and validate their Google My Business listing
  • Respond to client feedback
  • Share details like business hours, contact details, images, and customer reviews
  • View and analyze data on how Google users engage with and find your business
  • Posts should be made to highlight events, daily discounts, and other pertinent information

A company’s exposure in Google Search and Maps results can be increased by having a thorough and accurate GMB listing, increasing the likelihood that customers may discover you.

Effective Content Marketing

With the rise of digital marketing, content is no longer limited to blogs or articles, instead, podcasts, videos, and online classes have gained more traction as they have more entertainment value and engagement.

Content marketing takes time and effort and the following things should be done right:

  • Quality content
  • SEO optimization
  • Relevant topics
  • Consistent content creation & promotion

Although initial lead conversion rates are sometimes poor, in the long run, you might start seeing growth in visitors, leads, and customers and this can support an entire firm on its own.

Google Ads

Google AdWords

Google has approximately 40,000 global search queries per second!  No other form of advertising can bring your company in front of that many pairs of eyes. Google Ads formerly known as Google AdWords, is a free tool by Google that can help you develop your marketing strategies. Explore Google Analytics and Google Digital Unlocked to understand your online traffic and to get noticed with search ads.

Branding with Influencer Marketing

Influencer Marketing

According to Influencer Marketing Hub, in 2021 the number of brands providing services linked to influencer marketing increased by 26% to the previous year, reaching a startling 18,900 businesses, and over 80% of emerging brands used Instagram to promote influencer marketing.
