Have you thought about attempting some new marketing strategies in order to help your marketing processes be more successful? If so, there’s a new marketing trend that many small business owners are taking advantage of and that’s social media marketing. Social media marketing is pretty self-explanatory; many small business owners find themselves using Facebook, Twitter or Google+ to create an account for marketing their business. If you use social media marketing correctly, it can do wondrous things for your business. Facebook, for example, has over 1 billion active users as of 2012 and Twitter has over 100 million; think about the number of consumers you could market to if you were to create a Facebook or Twitter account.
So, how do you go about implementing social media marketing into your marketing process and how do you correctly use it? One experienced marketing firm, Direct Business Marketing, provides tips and suggestions on a weekly basis to small business owners to help them with situations such as this. With regards to social media marketing as part of your marketing process, DBM always encourages that you have current, relevant content. Your social media friends want to see information that’s going to grab their attention and content that they can share with other friends, so don’t be afraid to let your personality show when posting content to your site, but remember that you need to update on a daily basis to ensure that your business and products are always out there for your followers to see. It’s also important to interact with your followers, like or comment on the content that they are posting and really build that personal relationship with them. When you do this, it builds on their sense of trust and they feel as if they know you better; consumers want to buy from people that they know, like and trust.
