New Year, new you! Many small businesses are trying to decide on their social media marketing in 2019 in the hopes of increasing sales and foot traffic on their websites. Marketing for most small businesses is often not a priority, but it should be. How else will people learn about your product or services? Word of mouth? Well, that might have worked 15 or 20 years ago, but does not work now. Today’s audience does not “talk” to each other; they text, chat and wave to each other online. Small businesses can compete in the social media realm so long as they have a strategy. Despite the ongoing investigation delving into Zuckerburg's situation, for the first time in social media history, Facebook is in the number three spot for social networks, just behind YouTube and Google. Facebook still has 1.47 billion people logging in daily with more than 70% in the United States. Therefore, Facebook is still a safe and lucrative place to put your marketing dollars. So, where do you start with your marketing strategy? Our suggestion is Facebook, YouTube, and Direct Mail Marketing, otherwise known as cross-channel marketing.
