Starting your business is a very brave and hard thing to do. We're setting up websites and social media pages and then we have to look for clients to keep our businesses alive.
In between of all this we need to market our business so people actually know we exist. This is where people often get stuck and really don't know what to do or where to go.
If this is you, read below for marketing strategies to see your business grow.
No matter what marketing strategy you use, if you don't have an effective sales funnel and optimise your conversions, you'll just be throwing money away.
Use social media: Some businesses have been built solely on the backs of social media. It can be intimidating at first. Sure. But as you build momentum, you'll find posting on social media to get easier and easier over time.
Create video tutorials: One of the most effective ways to get the word out on your business is to create video tutorials. Teach people something useful. Walk them through it. Hold their hands. Step-by-step tutorials are all the rage.
Start blogging now: You should start authority blogging. Use platforms like Medium to post content. Answer questions on Quora and Reddit. Or get out there onto LinkedIn's publishing platform. These are all authority domains that anyone can post on, which have massive audiences, giving you instant and immediate reach right now.
Understand search engine optimisation: Yes, SEO can be frightening. But it can also be powerful. And when you learn to leverage it and you learn SEO the right way, the sky truly is the limit. You can't take shortcuts with SEO. Just like in business, you have to put in the work and the time if you want to see the results.
