Every small business should have an inbound marketing strategy. If you want your business to grow it’s important to develop an effective plan of getting and keeping your customers attention. Learn to go after what customer’s value. Small businesses should find ways to get customers to come to you, learn how you can improve your content, and improve your social networking presence.
In order for your business to grow, you have to create great content. Provide content that your customer is seeking. Gear your website content toward solving whatever problem your customer is seeking a solution to. Learn everything you can about who your customers are, what information they need, and then tailor your content to that particular customer.
An essential part of inbound marketing is search engine optimization (SEO). It’s very important to learn about SEO. Using SEO can be very useful in getting information about your business out there because it allows people to find you online. Without knowing how to effectively optimize your website and its content for search engines, your content will not get a lot of traffic and your business’s online exposure will lag. Learn to use effective keywords or phrases that you think your customer is interested in. What does your customer care about? What concerns do they have? Figure out how they would search for the content you are offering. Once you find out what your customer cares about, create content around their particular interests.
Social media is another important part of inbound marketing. People of all ages have social media accounts. They get on their accounts several times each day. If you don’t have a social media account you are missing out on a huge customer base — take some time today and create a Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube account. Then create a Facebook “Page” all about your business. Post pictures and helpful information for your customers. Share helpful posts that tell about how your business will solve problems and improve their lives. Post links to your website. Have a contest, give something away, or post discounts on the service that you are providing. On Twitter, users post tweets every minute. Try to tweet about your business several times a day. Tweet answers to questions your customer may have. YouTube is a great place to share videos that your company may create. Look to interact with your customers on these social media sites. Be available to answer any questions or concerns they may have. Learn how to use the power that these sites offer to further your business.
