I love helping small businesses with their digital marketing and business strategy. I'm a young man with a passion in entrepreneurship and international experience in business development, marketing, sales, and web/graphic design.
The history of mankind has shown us that we as humans are constantly on the lookout for finding ways to make our life easier. This started a long time ago, when man had the need to stay warm and not suffer during cold nights and colder winters, thus man learned how to create fire, and create clothing to stay warm.
Today, the same concept is alive as we’re constantly looking for ways to make our life easier. For example, trying to get places faster (Uber), avoid things we dislike to eat (Checking Yelp), connecting more often with the people we like (Social Media), getting the best value for our money (Amazon, Walmart), and the list goes on.
When it comes down to business, we’re also trying to make our businesses run smoother, more efficient, hiring the correct team members, etc. Yet, many things come down to finding ways to save time and money, because time = money.
I’m always looking for ways to save time, and work more efficiently. So here’s a few ways that you can save time on your daily marketing and sales business tasks.
Know when a marketing agency is in it to win it – for your business.
In the digital age, the marketing industry is booming. Companies of all sizes outsource their marketing efforts to stay competitive in today’s fast-paced world. It’s vital to understand the difference between a marketing agency that’s truly invested in a client’s success versus one that is solely concerned with generating profit for itself. Learn how to pick the perfect marketing agency.
Marketing agencies come in all shapes and sizes. Know how to choose the best.
A market agency is a valuable asset for your business – one that can take a lot of worries off your plate so you can focus on growing your business. It’s vital to properly vet potential agencies before selecting a partner. Stay alert while shopping for a marketing agency, and beware of these common red flags that indicate a marketing agency might not be right for your brand.
Writing quality content is time-consuming enough. Posting it to multiple social media sites, can take you “forever”. Here are the seven best options that can cut your task from 15 to 30 minutes, at most, freeing your time to concentrate on what’s most important.
LinkedIn is a goldmine for marketers, especially B2B companies. On LinkedIn, you can find high-level decision-makers who have the authority to pull the trigger on a new purchase.
Even if you sell consumer products, you can still reach an audience of wealthy, career-minded individuals who are ready to buy.
This is why — and how — you should reach them.
According to a recent survey, consumers make 51% of their purchases online, a 3% increase over one year. The same survey also found that 48% of transactions were through eCommerce in 2015. If there was ever any doubt, this information proves that the future is bright for online shopping.
When you think marketing, you probably picture billboards, television commercials and radio jingles. YouTube isn’t something that always comes to mind, but it can have a major impact on consumers and on your business’s bottom line. In fact, YouTube is every bit as powerful as other social media sites, if not more. The popular video-sharing site attracts more than 1 billion users each month, a number that mirrors Facebook’s monthly usage. It’s also growing at a much faster rate.
If you’re a million dollar author like J.K. Rowling, creator of the Harry Potter series, it’s easy to achieve success with subsequent books. After all, you’re known, and loyal followers can't wait to pluck them off the shelf. The problem lies with your first book, and Rowling had massive problems with that one. Harry Potter spiraled through various rejections, before Joanne K. Rowling hit it. Rowling wrote fiction, but both fiction and nonfiction authors struggle to market that first book. Let’s see how two famous authors of each category succeeded.
Now that you understand a bit about mobile marketing, it’s time to go deeper. Use what you learned about mobile marketing and make it work for your brand.
Mobile marketing is an evolving game. Every new advance in technology and each new trend adds another layer of complexity to successful mobile marketing. Now that you’ve gained a basic understanding of how mobile marketing works, it’s time to start making it work for your brand to maximum effect.
Over and again, I have found that fledgling innovators or entrepreneurs start with the product idea first and link their strategies to it. Campaigns flounder because they start from their vantage point rather than that of their clients. In the end, these individuals may end up pleasing just themselves - or not even themselves because they end up at a loss.
