Have you ever found yourself sitting at your desk, staring at your computer or your phone and wondering what the next step is? Maybe you’ve just started your business and are trying to decide how to best promote yourself or maybe you’ve been around for a while and need to make some changes. Everywhere you look, you are being inundated with information about the latest marketing tool. How do you decide which one is right for you?
What Can You Do?
The best advice I can give you is to keep it simple. Determine who your target audience is and focus your marketing strategy around them. If you are a new business, chances are you don’t have a great deal of money or time to spend on a complicated marketing plan. You can, however, pick a couple of platforms that will bring you the closest to your target audience and focus on them. Having said that, you will want to keep a few things in mind.
Keep things simple. Find ways to streamline your social media posts and take advantage of some free graphic and email programs that are online. If you have success with these programs you can upgrade to paid versions with more features as you grow. Keep your social media and other marketing platforms at a level that you can handle without being overwhelmed. Consistency is more effective than volume, so don’t feel you have to be everywhere right away.
