The digital age of marketing just got harder. Not only are we having to navigate the vast world of social media, but we now have to compete with things like ChatGPT that are making it even harder to successfully compete with other businesses.
But don’t sulk, don’t get depressed. It isn’t all that bad out there, and if you can try to do your best and staying ahead of the curve and embracing modern marketing techniques, you’ll still have a fighting chance and acquiring new customers and keeping your current ones engaged and committed to your company. So if you’re ready, let’s dive in and talk about getting customers in the digital age.
🌟 Leverage Social Media Like a Pro 🌟
I’m sure you’ve heard this a million times, but here’s a reminder: social media is your best friend! 😍 Platforms like Facebook, TikTok, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn provide countless opportunities to showcase your brand and attract new customers. 🤳(Fun fact, LinkedIn still gets some of the largest amounts of traffic out any of the social media companies).
How can you stand out from the crowd? Make your content 🔥 sizzle 🔥 by:
Showing off your brand’s personality 🎭
Engaging with your audience through comments, polls, and DMs 🗣️
Collaborating with influencers and other like-minded brands 🤝
And remember, consistency is key! 💯 Regularly posting fresh and engaging content keeps your followers excited and eager to share with their friends and family, which of course leads to them spreading the word about your awesome business. 🌟
(Quick tip: make sure you aren’t flooding your social media feed with content thinking more is better. A few quality posts/videos/images a week is WAY better than too much low-quality content).
💌 Email Marketing: Still Alive and Kicking 💌
Hold on! ⚠️ Don’t write off email marketing yet. It’s far from being a nostalgia. In fact, according to a recent study, 81% of small businesses still rely on email as their primary customer acquisition channel. 📈
So why is it such a focal point to businesses alike? Email marketing allows you to:
- Build lasting relationships with your subscribers 🤗
- Share exclusive offers and promotions 🎁
- Easily track and measure your campaigns’ success 📊
People are still constantly checking their emails and if you’re able to create hook your client with the right subject and email message, you’re looking at a potential for some great returns.
🤝 Don’t Forget About Real-Life Connections 🤝
While digital marketing is essential, don’t forget the power of word of mouth. 🗣️ Nothing beats a personal recommendation from a trusted friend or family member. 👫We don’t just mean getting good reviews from your clients on sites like TrustPilot, or Yelp. Having friends physically talking and engaging with others about how great your business helped them is one of the best ways to get more clients hooked and wanting to connect with you.
Here are some tips to keep word-of-mouth magic alive:
Network at industry events and meetups 🤝(Look for things around your city, and if nothing’s available, why not create some meet up events yourself?)
Offer incentives for referrals (e.g., discounts, freebies). 🎁(Of course you’d hope your customers would want to refer friends on their own – but when that doesn’t work, incentives can come in and added that added bump to get them to take some action).
Always prioritize top-notch customer service 🌟
By focusing on these real-life connections, you can build a loyal customer base that raves about your business to everyone they know.
