Sometimes when I see a social media consultant or a marketer, I get the strange feeling that they forgot about some important things when it comes to marketing, especially online.
Marketing online is just another way to get your business out there to the masses. You can do this with television, billboards, pamphlets, business cards, radio, newspaper, and more. The Internet is merely another medium. The problem is that these marketers forget to use all their tools, no matter where their business may be. I mentioned in another post that you need to have a presence online and locally.
You need to promote your business in any manner possible, even if your business is online, or sells from a building that you want people to come to. Your business needs as much help as possible. This is why people sometimes wear a t-shirt to a conference that has their company’s logo on it, or you can leave a few of your business card on some pin board at some local grocery stores.
I have put together a little graphic meme to help with my point. You are welcome to save and share it, or share this post.
What marketing methods do you currently use for your business?
